Alchemy (a practical approach)

Recommended Posts


Alchemy - the origins of


Alchemy: the medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold or to find a universal elixir.

  • Alchemy had its origins in the creation of life: to turn dirt(which represents basic matter) into gold(which represents complex life)
  • this can be seen everyday: when a male or female eats pretty much lifeless matter, he/she then turns it into a Seed(sperm) or an Egg
  • the revelation that true alchemy was founded upon the creation of life, was kept so intensely guarded that most real alchemical works are encrypted to hide the knowledge of this
  • One is made to believe that Alchemy only has to do with the transmutation of metals, while that is a prominent form of Alchemy, it is not its beginning


Inner Alchemy

  • There is a Universe going on inside of you
  • the only Being missing is the one they call God, we live on a Planet that most think God is in the sky or anywhere but here
  • We have now seen that the Supreme is in everything and all around us
  • the next stage is to, fully, recognize that within
  • when that is realized, you return within, to yourself


The Enlightenment Era

  • Approximately 300 years ago there was a time known as The Enlightenment Era or the Age of Reason
  • it was the advent of social and mental juggernauts such as Voltaire, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Francis Bacon, and many so-called distinguished gentleman
  • What many don't know is that this was the most recent time that the higher truths were actually discovered and for the most part comprehended
  • What was uncovered never made it to the Commoner, as most of the knowledge stayed only within the ranks of todays most elite societies, which spawned from: the Academy of Science, the Royal Society of London, and Accepted Freemasonry, to name a few
  • What we call today's modern Secret Societies actually formed during the Enlightenment Era but let us keep in mind a real Secret Society is still a secret
  • they used the knowledge discovered, for the most part, to gain an advantage over the rest of humanity


Golden Ages

  • when a Monarch takes the throne, whom is interested in learning the inner workings of creation, "Golden Ages" in society are brought about by the ruling powers
  • in most cases these “Golden Ages” are for the purpose of prolonging the Monarch’s dominion
  • This has happened several times throughout history, stemming all the way back to the Pharaonic Dynasties and the erection of the Library of Alexandria
  • The method has always been the same: the Ruler sends out an edict, promising anyone that brings something rare and unique to the Council a handsome reward. Ex. ancient manuscripts, strange animals, scarce elements, ancient relics, etc.
  • This never fails to supply these Councils with large amounts of data, gathered from the most remote parts of the Planet, to be examined
  • It was clear that during those times, writing the wrong thing or going too far into your own theories, especially when writing a scholarly work, could end in at best ridicule and banishment, and at worst death
  • What was gleaned from Ernst Heinrich Phillip August Haeckel's work on Radiolaria Protozoa pulled from the Ocean was: the actual origins to Plants, Trees, Simple and Complex Lifeforms, Geometry, Occult Symbolism, Cymatics, even Cultures and Religious preferences


Space and the Ocean

  • The Ocean and Space have always been synonymous in ancient tradition for a reason
  • Anyone who has spent decent periods of time on the Ocean, can attest to there truly being no limit to what you may see
  • The numerous amounts of lifeforms can be baffling
  • Further, it is a little known fact that all elements that can be found in Space can be found in the Ocean
  • Without struggling with the unnecessary question of which one came first, it suffices to say that; any Meteorite that has ever entered our atmosphere, has found at least a small portion of its genetic makeup scattered to the winds, which is eventually immersed in the Ocean, joining the countless amounts of other Organisms in union
  • If you can put together all the different characters and aspects of life, identify them only by their Energies, you will find yourself in possession of the Alchemical Emporium: a storehouse of forces, in every variation you can imagine
  • Life has always been seen as beginning in the Ocean or Space depending on the culture
  • The waters located in the Deep Ocean are said to be so rich in Minerals that it is animate and fertile, all on its own
  • Some see the “Dark Matter of Space” as equivalent to the “Deep Ocean”: they are both a Prima Materia of some sort, the material which anything can be made out of
  • This shows you once more that there is an "as above, so below" connection to everything
  • finding the “above” correspondence to something you are interacting with “below” is one of the greatest methods of figuring things out and in
  • 71% of Earth’s surface is covered with water and the Ocean holds about 96.5% of it
  • this can be seen as the same comparison with Space and how many Planets and Stars fill it, while most of it remains “uninhabited”
  • The truth is the Ocean and Space are teeming with abundant life
    • most of it remains lightly gelatinous in the case of the Ocean
    • in the case of Space it is beyond the visual spectrum of light
  • Space’s physical correspondence is the Ocean.


The Divine Feminine - refers to the Divine Feminine Energy/Presence, not simply a human female. This energy is present in both males and females, and many other elements.


  • Ancient esoteric knowledge highlights the Divine Feminine as being the Ocean, Marina, or Mary as in Maritime
  • She is Maat or Matter or Mom, the M being the symbol of waves, vibrations, cones, spirals etc.
  • She is curvy and spirals, a smooth nurturing life-giving force
  • but few know just how exact such a statement is because Her Veil is seldom lifted, meaning, most come out but never find a way back in, back through the Portal
  • Spirals indicating the spiral force witnessed within life such as the Milky Way and your fingerprint
  • The Pentagram representing Phi
  • Shells representing the housings, the Ocean, waves, vortexes etc.
  • Large breasts symbolizing abundance, water, milk, foam, and nurturing
  • The Vesica and Concave triangles representing the portal or opening of the womb which is identical to a black hole.


The Ocean Containing Information

  • Here are some examples of how the Ocean, along with the voluminous articles that inhabit it, are in fact the origins of much of the ideas propagated on land
  • Since Sound, Shape, and Color all have a connection, you can read from these works of art, a timeline of over billions of years of complex evolutions
  • Mentally you discover and comprehend the patterns used to create life
  • Physically you witness the structures of greatness that survived time and Spiritually, you are united with a vast part of your long lost Family, the true missing link (in regards to Evolution)
  • There has been an unprecedented plagiary from Mother Nature and the Divine feminine force when it comes to matters of creation and occult matters alike
  • Pentagrams become symbols of the devil rather than the Phi based patterns witnessed within many lifeforms, including the procession of the Planet Venus
  • Maltese crosses are lent to being of Illuminati origin, belonging to a band of hospitable knights protecting christians
  • Mary becomes externalized in to a maritime Goddess of justice governing from the sea via docked courthouses (see the statue of liberty or the starbucks logo)
  • It is no doubt that we all have a connection with the deep and that connection is being exploited down to the fiber of our very being and instinct
  • Even flashing the geometry of such prehistoric connections triggers a feeling of recollection, as we see the origins of our power and expression


The Connection

  • The advent of Alchemy had its origins in the creation of life: to turn dirt, which corresponds to basic matter, into gold, which corresponds to complex life (dirt --> gold)/(matter --> life)
  • This is seen everyday when the male or female eats just about lifeless matter and then turns it in to a Seed or an Egg (the body as an alchemical instrument)
  • This revelation, of true alchemy, was kept so intensely guarded that most, real, alchemical works are encrypted to hide the knowledge of this
  • One is made to believe that Alchemy only has to do with the transmutation of metals and while that is a prominent form of Alchemy, it is not its beginning
  • Ancient Alchemist knew that even the crucibles and vessels used in Alchemy were modelled after the organs of the body in an attempt to mimic their use (see picture below)
  • Only recently, works have surfaced such as: “The Book of Aquarius by Anonymous”, which hints to utilizing, instead of Metals, actual body fluids such as urine and administering to oneself as an elixir, after taking it through a methodical distillation process, to perform Alchemy

Jay Weidner has studied alchemy for years.


Have you seen the GEI threads about Weidner?


Also Dr Richard Alan Miller has written a book about the symbols used in Alchemy

Energetic Creation


Although this article is basic information, it can be useful to take a closer look at energy from this perspective.

Energy = Time

Energy can also equal Money and Power

  • becoming aware that we have a certain amount of energy on a daily basis and being conscious of how that is used
  • time is a commodity - it is wealth, your wealth to spend as you see fit


Energetic Creation Part 1 - taking control of your life/reality

  • In order for an individual to not get stuck, trapped, or held down, there are “fail-safes” installed within this reality, such as:
    • energy (abundance or lack of)
    • empowerment (attaining more control of your life and self)
    • disempowerment (losing control)(becoming a victim)
    • aid/assistance (from others or from the Divine Source)
    • creativity, innovation, “luck”
    • “mind games”, self-deceptions, or “the mental treadmill”

  • there is a “particular moment in time” when certain individuals realize that they can actually create/manifest

  • There exists many energies that we are unaware of, working in conjunction with us, which also seek to see their reality accomplished
  • We are not the ones solely responsible for our own creations - there are other factors involved
  • Working together as a team, or in unison towards the same goal, allows:
    • more possibilities, greater potential, and faster results
    • more motivation and the ability to motivate each other

  • When one becomes more confident that they are, in part, responsible for manifesting their own life/reality, the journey has just begun
  • Belief must be accompanied with Energy and because there seems to be a “shortage of energy”
    • the whole world is in an “energy crises”
    • many people that know about manifestation still fail to make it work in their favour


Energetic Creation Part 2 - without power, the engine can’t run

  • The word “powerless” comes into play here
    • “your fuel tank is empty”, “your battery is low”, “you are out of steam”

  • If one knows they can manifest everything they want and they only need power, they then begin to analyze the things that are taking power from them
    • This must begin as soon as possible - in the format of a conversation with themselves
    • They must be firm and objective with this endeavour

  • This is like a gas tank leak, unless it is patched up, one will keep having to refill constantly
    • If they run out of a source of fuel, they will be left powerless and utterly unable to do anything about their current surrounding until somehow they gain power over it
    • What often happens is people believe that they are powerful, but in fact they are powerless. This is the ultimate Jedi mind trick used on oneself when one has fallen into such a state

  • Anything that you are not being correctly compensated for will use up energy and deplete you
    • compensation does not always mean money
    • energy can be more valuable than money
      • money can indeed turn into “real power”, but it can also lead to false power, or an illusion of power

    • trading your energy/time for money is a potential gamble/risk
      • ex. hydro-electric energy: water flows and generates power, but water is not the power itself
      • ex. a person who spends their money on a new car, believing it will grant them power
        • instead of using a fraction of that money for something that could truly grant them power

    • misusing power eventually leads to total consumption and depletion
      • this can turn into a vicious cycle

    • “making it to the top” in this manner, makes the fall back down longer and harder


Energetic Creation Part 3 - “with great power(fuel/energy), comes great responsibility”

  • to become Powered up means becoming awake and aware
    • being awake and aware enough to truly see what is happening around you

  • to be Fully Powered up is to understand the meaning and purpose of your life
    • to clearly see how everything is interconnected
      • to clearly understand all of the individual connections

  • once you can see how it all connects, you would be able to manifest 10 cars if you so choose
    • however, you will have already understood that if you extend yourself to more than you require, there will be a loss of energy
      • ex. paying insurance, maintenance, etc. on the extra 9 vehicles
      • ex. leaving a lightbulb on during a sunny day

  • Powerless simply means: not being able to change life into what you want - regardless of the reason
    • ask yourself what is the intention behind your actions and activities
      • is it just to pass time? just to be entertained? is there no deeper purpose or reason for what you do?
        • if so, you must realize that your energy is being wasted, scattered in all directions
        • your energy is not being focused or collected and concentrated
        • it is not being directed to your desired purpose
          • who is it serving? and for what end?

      • be aware of what is happening behind the activity, on an energetic level

    • figure out what you seek to gain from an activity
    • figure out if an activity is worth investing your time into it

  • Being Powerless also keeps one totally unable to comprehend anything besides what’s in front of them
    • they lack the ability to tune their opticals and perceptions to examining the depth of everything
    • this is why many simply don’t understand what’s going on and can’t really even imagine it, it takes power to do all of that

  • This is just a fact and facts don’t need to be proven they just are
  • Until the facts of life are adhered to, there will be an uphill sensation to much of the journey.


See Yourself as an Energy Generator

  • a generator of energy that gauges exactly how much to give out - enough to remain powered up but also to be able to share with others
    • one must choose carefully where to invest their energy
      • give it to people that will use that energy wisely - to power themselves up and to power up others

  • the body is a massive organic device with a multitude of abilities

    • there is an energy cell or battery that needs to be recharged (sleep, rest, healing)
      • this energy cell can have its capacity decreased or increased

  • the energy cell determines what abilities can be used
    • certain activities use immense amounts of power
    • use your time wisely, for it is easy to spend long periods of time using up your battery and not having any reserve left for the important activities
      • talking to others or teaching others will drain your battery
      • however if you truly helped someone, or are in a relationship of mutual exchange, you will be compensated for your energy

    • therefore it is vital to attach yourself to something that benefits more than just yourself

  • because of our connection to one another, great things can be achieved by working together
    • an individual is able to share someone’s experience without getting involved with the action itself
    • we are all interconnected in one way or another
      • ex. one would not keep writing if someone wasn’t reading
      • a symbiotic relationship

  • anything is possible, here and now, there are no limitations apart from the ones we impose upon ourselves
  • or the preconceived notions that we have been taught but deep down we don’t truly believe
    • the inner child is knowledgeable and aware of this, it knows what needs to be done
    • we must reconnect to our inner child


What makes something real?

  • depending on whether it is relevant to you
    • some believe there is no life after death because it is not relevant to them
    • they have no need to discover whether or not life continues upon death of the physical body
    • however, that does not mean it is not real or that life after death does not exist
    • it is simply irrelevant for them because of the stage they are currently at
    • however, after everything has failed them and they require some other-worldly confirmation, they are willing to explore unchartered territory
      • ex. life after death, extraterrestrials, occult knowledge, etc.

    • so what is relevant to you?

  • The world is in need of good people leading by example - all factions agree on this
  • for some, the next phase will be to get a chance at creating their own world, being able to invite others into that world
  • The limitations that people have is within their mind, keep all ideas wild like the jungle and of the highest nature

Divine Masculine and Feminine

  • The Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies are to be cultivated in order for balance to be restored on this planet
  • It is about both the masculine and feminine coming into power and not one side rising above the other
  • If one should arise above the other, such as living in a patriarchal society, the men will be acting out of a place of powerlessness, in the same way women might if we were to live in a matriarchal society
  • For this to happen males have to become their true masculine selves and women are to become their divine feminine selves with no fear
  • These polar opposites, the masculine or feminine, represent the experience of life in two completely different ways
  • Through acting from our truest state of masculinity or femininity we are able to find our true partner
  • Both men and women in todays society reject their masculinity or femininity due to feeling powerless or being ashamed in some way
    • Therefore, it is about us coming into our power again as men and women
    • It is about us truly understanding what it is to be male and what it is to be female

“I would like the woman to become as feminine as possible… and the man needs to be as masculine as possible, only then can they flower. And when they come close, when they meet in intimacy they bring two different worlds, two different dimensions, two different richnesses, and the meeting is a tremendous blessing, a benediction” —Osho

  • The Divine Feminine energy embodies an intelligent and loving energy
    • It is nurturing, compassionate, emotion, intuition, creativity, empathy and more

  • The Divine Masculine energy is an intelligent energy that possesses the quality of analytic, and rational thinking
    • It embodies determination, competition, logical thought and action

  • Both of these energies reside in any one male or female
    • if this were not the case we would not have either logical thought nor creativity

  • It is each individuals responsibility to balance these energies and use both of them whilst still remaining true to the sex we identify within ourselves
  • It is important to know that the Divine Masculine does not necessarily represent the male human body and vice versa for the Divine Feminine
  • Ultimately the divine feminine and masculine are not to be seen only as energies on the human race spectrum but on a much more broad level of existence
    • ex. there are female and male lions, dogs, etc. - it is not limited to human

  • Saying that it only works within human reality/consciousness is to miss a very large part of the Knowledge
  • Knowledge that awaits to unlock us further out from the box
  • the Divine Masculine/Feminine are forces that existed before we even got Here, they are ancient and eternal


Left/Right Brain Balance

  • There is the idea that the New Age movement is another way for the Illuminati to control us
    • some people believe this movement has been created for the sole purpose of the Illuminati continuing to deceive us into following yet another religion
    • that the movement is there to create a false sense of freedom and in turn we overlook earthly events and what is happening in the now

  • The Elite have been working behind the scene for thousands of years to manipulate us into using only our left brains
  • Now it seems the opposite is occurring, they are manipulating us to use only our right brains
    • this started with the energy shift in 2012

  • All this means is that we need to find balance between using the left and right brain
  • Start trusting and relying on yourself, this will allow you to know the difference between positive and false spiritual teachings
  • The more attention we give to these conspiracies, the more they thrive
  • We become paranoid and begin distrusting those around us and even ourselves
  • The real New Age movement comes from a renewing place of love, joy and peacefulness
  • Therefore, it is our responsibility to raise our vibrational frequency so that it is in line with this new way of living for humanity
  • Ultimately, it is up to you, the individual
    • choose beliefs that serve you personally
    • trust in your own judgement

  • Doing this we can gain the knowledge and wisdom necessary to:
    • learn to balance both of our left and right brains
    • and in turn make the best decisions for the planet’s universal consciousness

  • Energy initially goes to access the left brain and only the surplus energy goes to access the right brain
  • By bringing order to the thoughts of the left-brain, we conserve energy
  • We will have enough energy to access the right-brain
    • it is through the right-brain that we accesses the unknown, which is 11/12ths of what can be known by man

  • Choose your Battles Wisely


Letting Go of Attachment

  • It seems attachment and identification towards external things are what causes the most human suffering
  • Love and compassion are the emotions that give us vitality and joyfulness in our everyday lives
  • Whereas holding on to anger and sadness, we become chained to these emotions
  • We become attached to who or what we think we are
  • if anything dents our sense of self or self-image, we become worrisome and full of anxiety at the prospect of losing face
  • However, who or what we are is never going to change, it is at the very core of our being
  • Even though we are all on this journey to become better, more loving people, through our actions and beliefs, our soul never changes, it only gains more knowledge and experience

In the words of Lao Tzu:

  • “Can you step back from you own mind and understand all things?
    • giving birth and nourishing
    • having without possessing
    • acting with no expectations
    • leading and not trying to control

  • This is the supreme virtue.”
  • To love something is to set it free and help it to grow
  • To be attached to something is to make it become a part of our identity and try to control it
  • So the question is which will you choose, love or attachment ?

You are right - we sometimes take out health and wellbeing for granted


We must not do so, if we are to stay health - so this is a good prescription:



See Yourself as an Energy Generator

  • a generator of energy that gauges exactly how much to give out - enough to remain powered up but also to be able to share with others
    • one must choose carefully where to invest their energy
      • give it to people that will use that energy wisely - to power themselves up and to power up others
  • the body is a massive organic device with a multitude of abilities
    • there is an energy cell or battery that needs to be recharged (sleep, rest, healing)

"The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding"


"Where fall the footsteps of the Master, the ears of those ready for his Teaching open wide"


"When the ears of the student are ready to hear, then cometh the lips to fill them with Wisdom"


According to the Teachings, the passage of this book/information to those ready for the instruction will attract the attention of such as are prepared to receive the Teaching. And, likewise, when the pupil is ready to receive the truth, then will this little book come to him, or her. Such is The Law. The Hermetic Principle of Cause and Effect, in its aspect of The Law of Attraction, will bring lips and ear together-pupil and book in company. So mote it be!




Part 1:






"The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open."



I. The Principle of Mentalism


"THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental."

  • This principle embodies the truth that "All is Mind"
    • THE ALL (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of "The Material Universe"; the ''Phenomena of Life"; "Matter''; ''Energy''; and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is SPIRIT
    • Spirit is itself unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of as a universal, infinite, and living mind
    • The Universe is simply a Mental Creation of THE ALL, subject to the Laws of Created Things
      • this Universe exists only in the Mind, the Mind in which we “live, move and have our existence”
    • By establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, we can explain all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and which, without such explanation, are non-understandable and defy scientific treatment
  • This Principle explains the true nature of "Energy," "Power," and "Matter," and why these are subordinate to the Mastery of Mind.
  • "He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery"
    • These words are as true to-day as at the time they were first written
  • Without a full understanding of this Master-Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple



II. The Principle of Correspondence


"As above, so below; as below, so above"

  • There is always a Correspondence between: “the laws and phenomena of the various planes of existence” and “Life”
  • Grasping this Principle, of "As above, so below; as below, so above,” gives one the means of solving many paradoxes, and hidden secrets of Nature
    • there are planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the Principle of Correspondence to them, we are able to understand much that would otherwise be unknowable to us
  • This Principle is about application and manifestation, on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe
  • This Principle was considered as one of the most important mental instruments, by which man was able to pry aside the obstacles which hid from view the Unknown
    • just as knowledge of Geometry enables man to measure distant suns and their movements, this knowledge enables Man to reason intelligently from the Known to the Unknown
    • “studying the monad, he understands the archangel”



III. The Principle of Vibration


"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates"

  • Everything is in motion, 'everything vibrates"; "nothing is at rest"; facts which Modern Science endorse, and each new scientific discovery tends to verify
    • yet this Hermetic Principle was enunciated thousands of years ago, by the Masters of Ancient Egypt
  • This Principle explains that: the differences between different manifestations of: Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration
    • this is almost identical to modern string theory in Physics
  • From THE ALL, which is Pure Spirit, down to the grossest form of Matter, all is in vibration
    • the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the hierarchical scale
    • the vibration of Spirit is at such an infinite rate that it is practically at rest, just as a rapidly moving wheel seems to be motionless
    • at the other end of the scale, there are gross forms of matter whose vibrations are so low that they seem to be at rest
    • between these poles, there are millions upon millions of varying degrees of vibration
      • from corpuscle and electron, atom and molecule, to worlds and universes, everything is in vibratory motion
      • this is also true on the planes of energy and force (which are but varying degrees of vibration); and also on the mental planes (whose states depend upon vibrations); and even on the spiritual planes
  • An understanding of this Principle, with the appropriate formulas, enables an individual to control their own mental vibrations as well as those of others
  • The Masters also apply this Principle to conquer Natural phenomena
  • "He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the scepter of power"



IV. The Principle of Polarity


"Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled"

  • This Principle explains the old paradoxes, that have perplexed so many, which have been stated as follows:
    • "Thesis and antithesis are identical in nature, but different in degree"
    • "opposites are the same, differing only in degree"
    • "everything is and isn't, at the same time"
    • "all truths are but half-truths”, "every truth is half-false"
    • "there are two sides to everything"
  • The Principle explains that in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that "opposites" are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them
    • “two sides of the same coin”
    • Ex. Heat and Cold, although "opposites," are really the same thing, the differences consist merely of degrees
      • look at your thermometer and see if you can discover where "heat" terminates and "cold" begins!
      • there is no such thing as "absolute heat" or "absolute cold” - the two terms "heat" and "cold" simply indicate varying degrees of the same thing
      • that "same thing”, which manifests as "heat" and "cold" is merely a form, variety, and rate of Vibration
      • therefore: ''heat'' and ''cold" are simply the ''two poles'' of that which we call "Heat"
    • Ex. ”Light and Darkness," which are the same thing, the difference consisting of varying degrees between the two poles of the phenomena
      • where does "darkness" leave off, and "light" begin?
    • Ex. What is the difference between: "Large and Small”, "Hard and Soft”, "Black and White”, "Sharp and Dull”, "Noise and Quiet”, ”High and Low”, or ”Positive and Negative"?
  • The Principle of Polarity explains these paradoxes, and no other Principle can supersede it
  • The same Principle operates on the Mental Plane
    • Ex. a radical and extreme example: that of "Love and Hate," two mental states apparently totally different
      • yet there are degrees of Hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms "Like or Dislike," which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we "like" or "dislike" or ''neither''
        • all are simply degrees of the same thing, as you will see if you will but think a moment
        • and, more than this (and considered of more importance by the Hermetists), it is possible to change the vibrations of Hate to the vibrations of Love, in one's own mind, and in the minds of others
    • Many have had the personal experience of an involuntary, rapid transition from Love to Hate, and the reverse
      • therefore realize the possibility of this being accomplished at will, or by the use of the Will
  • "Good and Evil" are but the poles of the same thing, and transmuting Evil into Good is an art
  • The "Art of Polarization" becomes a phase of "Mental Alchemy"
  • An understanding of the Principle will enable one to change his own Polarity, as well as that of others, if he will devote the time and study necessary, in order to master the art



V. The Principle of Rhythm


"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates"

  • This Principle embodies the truth that, in everything there is manifested a measured motion, to and fro; a flow and inflow; a swing backward and forward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and low-tide; between the two poles
  • There is always an action and a reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and sinking
  • This is in the affairs of the Universe, suns, worlds, men, animals, mind, energy, and matter
  • This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man
  • It is in the mental realm that this principle finds its greatest application, through the Mental Law of Neutralization (see: http://www.greenenergyinvestors.com/index.php?showtopic=20570&page=1&do=findComment&comment=330397)
  • The Principle cannot be annulled, or cause it to cease its operation, but how to escape its effects can be learned, through Mastery of the Principle
  • One must have learned how to use it, instead of being used by it
  • One must polarizes himself at the point at which he desires to rest, and then neutralizes the Rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the other pole
    • all individuals who have attained any degree of Self-Mastery, do this to a certain degree, more or less unconsciously, but the Master does this consciously
    • the Master, by the use of his Will attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of the masses who are swung backward and forward like a pendulum
  • This Principle and that of Polarity
    • the methods of counteracting, neutralizing, and USING them form an important part of Mental Alchemy.



VI. The Principle of Cause and Effect


"Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law"

  • This Principle embodies the fact that there is a Cause for every Effect; an Effect from every Cause
  • It explains that: "Everything Happens according to Law"; that nothing ever ''merely happens"; that there is no such thing as Chance; that while there are various planes of Cause and Effect, the higher dominating the lower planes, still nothing ever entirely escapes the Law
  • One must understand the art and methods of rising above the ordinary plane of Cause and Effect, to a certain degree, and by mentally rising to a higher plane they become Causers instead of Effects
  • The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life
  • But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominates: their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns
    • they “play the Game of Life”, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment
    • they use the Principle instead of being its tools
  • A Master rules their own plane, while still obeying the Causation of the higher planes
    • in this statement there is condensed a wealth of Hermetic knowledge-let him read who can



VII. The Principle of Gender


"Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes"

  • This Principle embodies the truth that there is gender manifested in everything - the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work
    • this is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes
    • on the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as sex
    • on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same
  • No creation, physical, mental or spiritual, is possible without this Principle
  • The Principle of Gender works ever in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation
  • Everything, and every person, contains the two Elements or Principles, or this great Principle, within it, him or her
  • Every Male thing has the Female Element also; every Female contains also the Male Principle
  • This Principle has no reference to the many base, pernicious and degrading lustful theories, teachings and practices, which are taught under fanciful titles, and which are a prostitution of the great natural principle of Gender
    • such base revivals of the ancient infamous forms of Phallicism tend to ruin mind, body and soul
    • in the Teachings, there is a warning note against degraded teachings which tend toward lust, licentiousness, and perversion of Nature's principles
  • To the pure, all things are pure; to the base, all things are base

Part 2:




MENTAL TRANSMUTATION - an introduction


"Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art."

  • the Hermetists were the original alchemists, astrologers, and psychologists, Hermes having been the founder of these schools of thought
    • from astrology has grown modern astronomy
    • from alchemy has grown modern chemistry
    • from the mystic psychology has grown modern psychology
  • The truth is, that beneath the material chemistry, astronomy and psychology (that is, the psychology in its phase of "brain-action"), the ancients possessed a knowledge of:
    • transcendental astronomy, called astrology
    • transcendental chemistry, called alchemy
    • transcendental psychology, called mystic psychology
  • They possessed the Inner Knowledge as well as the Outer Knowledge, the latter alone being possessed by modern scientists
  • Among the many secret branches of knowledge possessed by the Hermetists, was that known as Mental Transmutation, which forms the subject matter
  • "Transmutation" is a term usually employed to designate the ancient art of the transmutation of metals-particularly of base metals into gold
  • "Transmute" means "to change from one nature, form or substance, into another; to transform" (Webster)
  • "Mental Transmutation" means the art of changing and transforming mental states, forms, and conditions, into others
    • Mental Transmutation is the "Art of Mental Chemistry"
  • The first of the Seven Hermetic Principles is the Principle of Mentalism, the axiom of which is ''THE ALL is Mind; the Universe is Mental"
    • meaning that the Underlying Reality of the Universe is Mind; and the Universe itself is Mental, that is, "existing in the Mind of THE ALL"
  • If the Universal is Mental in its nature, then Mental Transmutation must be the art of “changing the conditions of the Universe”, along the lines of Matter, Force, and Mind
    • Mental Transmutation is really the "Magic" of which the ancient writers had so much to say in their mystical works, and about which they gave so few practical instructions
  • If All be Mental, then the art which enables one to transmute mental conditions must render the Master the controller of material conditions as well as those ordinarily called "mental"
    • in other words: it is through the mental facilities that one is able to obtain control or manipulate material conditions
      • a strong focus/concentration is required and also endurance in sustaining that focus
      • it is through obtaining control of the mind and its projections that one can begin to manipulate reality
        • it is a fruitless endeavour to try to manipulate concrete reality in order to change the environment of the mind
  • The student and practitioner of Mental Transmutation works among the Mental Plane, transmuting mental conditions, states, etc., into others, according to various formulas, more or less efficacious
  • The majority of modern practitioners are quite ignorant compared to the ancient masters, for they lack the fundamental knowledge upon which the work is based
  • As many students and practitioners of modern mental science know, every material condition depending upon the minds of other people may be changed or transmuted in accordance with the earnest desire, will, and "treatments" of person desiring changed conditions of life









"Under, and back of, the Universe of Time, Space and Change, is ever to be found The Substantial Reality -the Fundamental Truth."


  • "Substance" means: "that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the essential reality; the thing in itself," etc.
  • "Substantial" means: "actually existing; being the essential element; being real,'' etc.
  • ''Reality'' means: "the state of being real; true, enduring; valid; fixed; permanent; actual," etc.
  • Under and behind all outward appearances or manifestations, there must always be a Substantial Reality. This is the Law
  • Man considering the Universe, of which he is a unit, sees nothing but change in matter, forces, and mental states
    • he sees that nothing really IS, but that everything is BECOMING and CHANGING
    • nothing stands still, everything is being born, growing, dying, the very instant a thing reaches its height, it begins to decline
    • there is no reality, enduring quality, fixity, or substantiality in anything - nothing is permanent but Change
      • all things evolve from other things, and resolving into other things:
        • a constant action and reaction
        • inflow and outflow
        • building up and tearing down
        • creation and destruction
        • birth, growth and death
    • Nothing endures but Change
  • All of these changing things must be but outward appearances or manifestations of some Underlying Power - some Substantial Reality
    • all thinkers, in all lands and in all times, have assumed the necessity for postulating the existence of this Substantial Reality
    • some have called it "The Infinite and Eternal Energy''; others have tried to call it "Matter”, but all have acknowledged its existence
    • it is self-evident - it needs no argument
  • the Hermetic Masters-and have called this Underlying Power, this Substantial Reality, by the Hermetic name of "THE ALL"
    • a term which is most comprehensive of the many terms applied to THAT which transcends names and terms
  • the inner nature of THE ALL is UNKNOWABLE
    • this must be so, for naught by THE ALL itself can comprehend its own nature and being
      • a subdivision, or part, of THE ALL, is unable to comprehend it due to its separation from it, or lack of completeness
  • The Hermetists regard all the theories, guesses and speculations of the theologians and metaphysicians regarding the inner nature of THE ALL, as but the childish efforts of mortal minds to grasp the secret of the Infinite
    • one pursuing such inquiries travels around and around in the labyrinth of thought, until he is lost to all sane reasoning, action or conduct, and is utterly unfitted for the work of life
      • he is like the squirrel which frantically runs around and around the circling treadmill wheel of his cage, traveling ever and yet reaching nowhere - at the end of a prisoner still, and standing just where he started
  • And still more presumptuous are those who attempt to ascribe to THE ALL the personality, qualities, properties, characteristics and attributes of themselves
    • ascribing to THE ALL the human emotions, feelings, and characteristics, even down to the pettiest qualities of mankind, such as jealously, susceptibility to flattery and praise, desire for offerings and worship, and all the other survivals from the days of the childhood of the race
      • such ideas are not worthy of grown men and women, and are rapidly being discarded
  • But while the essential nature of THE ALL is Unknowable, there are certain truths connected with its existence which the human mind finds itself compelled to accept

"But, the report of Reason must be hospitably received, and treated with respect."

  • The human reason, whose reports we must accept so long as we think at all, informs us as follows regarding THE ALL:
    1. “the all” must be “all” that “really is” - there can be nothing existing outside of “the all”, else “the all” would not be “the all”
    2. “the all” must be “infinite” - for there is nothing else to define, confine, bound, limit, or restrict “the all”
      • it must be Infinite in Time, or “eternal” - it must have always continuously existed, for there is nothing else to have ever created it
        • because something cannot evolve from nothing, if it never “was”, then it could not “be” now
      • it must continuously exist forever, for there is nothing to destroy it, and it can never "not be," even for a moment, because something can never become nothing
      • it must be Infinite in Space - it must be Everywhere, for there is no place outside of THE ALL - it cannot be otherwise than continuous in Space, without break, cessation, separation, or interruption, for there is nothing to break, separate, or interrupt its continuity, and nothing with which to "fill in the gaps"
      • it must be Infinite in Power, or Absolute, for there is nothing to limit, restrict, restrain, confine, disturb or condition it-it is subject to no other Power, for there is no other Power
    3. THE ALL must be IMMUTABLE, or not subject to change in its real nature
      • for there is nothing to work changes upon it; nothing into which it could change, nor from which it could have changed
      • it cannot be added to nor subtracted from; increased nor diminished; nor become greater or lesser in any respect whatsoever
      • it must have always been, and must always remain, just what it is now - THE ALL - there has never been, is not now, and never will be, anything else into which it can change
  • THE ALL being Infinite, Absolute, Eternal and Unchangeable it must follow that anything finite, changeable, fleeting, and conditioned cannot be THE ALL
  • Since, in Reality, there is Nothing outside of THE ALL, then any and all such finite things must be as Nothing in Reality
    • do not become confused at this apparent paradox - there is reconcilliation of this apparently contradictory stare of affairs
  • We see around us that which is called "Matter," which forms the physical foundation for all forms. Is THE ALL merely Matter? Not at all!
    • matter cannot manifest Life or Mind, and as Life and Mind are manifested in the Universe, THE ALL cannot be Matter, for nothing rises higher than its own source
    • nothing is ever manifested in an effect that is not in the cause - nothing is evolved as a consequent that is not involved as an antecedent
  • Modern Science informs us that there is really no such thing as Matter - that what we call Matter is merely "interrupted energy or force," that is, energy or force at a low rate of vibration
    • as a recent writer has said "Matter has melted into Mystery"
    • even Material Science has abandoned the theory of Matter, and now rests on the basis of "Energy”
  • Then is THE ALL mere Energy or Force?
    • Not Energy or Force as the materialists uses the terms, for their energy and force are blind, mechanical things, devoid of Life or Mind
    • life and Mind can never evolve from blind Energy or Force, for the reason that:
      • ''Nothing can rise higher than its source - nothing is evolved unless it is involved - nothing manifests in the effect, unless it is in the cause." And so THE ALL cannot be mere Energy or Force, for, if it were, then there would be no such things as Life and Mind in existence, and we know better than that, for we are Alive and using Mind to consider this very question, and so are those who claim that Energy or Force is Everything
  • The question now arises: What is there higher than Matter or Energy that we know to be existent in the Universe? LIFE AND MIND! - Life and Mind in all their varying degrees of unfoldment!
    • "Then," you ask, "do you mean to tell us that THE ALL is LIFE and MIND?" Yes! and No! is our answer
      • If you mean Life and Mind as we poor petty mortals know them, we say No! THE ALL is not that!
    • "But what kind of Life and Mind do you mean?" you ask
      • The answer is "LIVING MIND, as far above that which mortals know by those words, as Life and Mind are higher than mechanical forces, or matter - INFINITE LIVING MIND as compared to finite Life and Mind"
    • We mean that which the illumined souls mean when they reverently pronounce the word: "SPIRIT!"
  • "THE ALL" is Infinite Living Mind - the illumined call it SPIRIT!
