The Key To Opening The Seven Seals

The seeker’s journey to Pure Consciousness begins from muladhara chakra at the base of the spine, where the first seal resides, and upwards to sahasrara chakra in the brain, where the seventh seal resides (the ultimate state of oneness with the eternal Father).
So Jesus said, ‘When you have lifted up the Son of man [to Divine Consciousness], then you will know that I am He
John 8: 28.
The New Testament is a complete description of the transformation from the lower stages to the higher stages of consciousness. In the writings of the Bible, the symbol of the wheel or seal is used to represent the chakras in the subtle bodies.
Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll written on both sides, and on the backside [in the spine], sealed with seven seals.
Revelation 5: 1
When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
Revelation 8: 1
In the Gospel of John and in the Book of Revelation (a record of what the Apostle John saw and heard, in which constant use is made of symbols) it is significant that John places these seals on the back of the book of life. Each of the churches of the Book of Revelation represents one of the seven major chakras in the astral spine
The human being’s real nature is divine, and the aim of human life is to realize this divine nature: that you are sat-chid-ananda (ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new joy). It is joy we seek, because joy is our true nature. The instinct for knowing our own real nature is inherent and self-evident it needs no proof.
Everybody will eventually awaken to some degree to that divine consciousness present in their lives. We may call it God, or we may call it Self; but when you know God through inner discovery and direct experience, you will know the Self as well, for they are one. As souls we may turn to God, or as the Self we may turn within to our own identity; in both we experience the one Light, the one Pure Consciousness. Under the power of Nature (Prakrii) and its conditions, the human soul identifying with the active mind and senses becomes confused and tired of the frustrations and suffering of life, and because of these obstacles, the soul cannot become conscious of the God within, whose power gives us the power to act. Thus, the embodied soul conditioned by Nature feels enslaved and limited to the gross physical form.
A person cannot be spiritually minded until he or she realizes the futility of worldly desires. When a person understands this truth and recognizes the limitation of what the worldly desires can fulfill, he or she develops the insight that the one supreme purpose of life and complete fulfilment in life is to realize God.

Revelation 1,10-20 gives a record of spiritual experience and description of the astral anatomy. John also refers to the three main nadis: ida, pingala and susumna, and the chakras:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (kundalin), clothed with the sun [pingala], and the moon (ida) under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars [the six chakras up and down]. Revelation 12: 1
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads [seven chakras] and ten horns [the five organs of action and the five organs of knowledge], and seven crowns [seven chakras and associated vibrations] upon his head.
Revelation 12: 3
Again the susumna, ida and pingala are referred to by St John in the last chapter of Revelation:
Then the angel showed me the river of water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb (Christ Consciousness within) down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river (susumna)] stood the tree of life [Ida and pingala], bearing twelve crops of fruits [the positive and negative poles of the six chakras, produced by the upward and downward currents in Ida and pingala], yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves [vibrations and rhythms] of the tree [consciousness] are for the healing of the nations [whole body]. Revelation 22:1-2
The ajna chakra is also mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments:
The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
Matthew 6: 22
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life (the spine], and may enter in through the gates [chakras] into the city.
Revelation 22:1.
The three astral nadis, and the seven main chakras are also referred to in the Old Testament, in Zechariah:
Then the angel who talked with me returned and wakened me, as a man wakened from sleep. He asked me, ‘What do you see?’ I answered, ‘I see a solid gold lamp stand (susumna) with a bowl at the top [sahasrara] and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights. And there are two olive trees by it Ida and Pingala), one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left: Zechariah 4: 2,3
In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth (medulla oblongata, the negative pole of the *anja chakra” came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance (the concentrated energy in the head). Revelation 1: 16
The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden candlesticks [chakras] is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven candlesticks are the seven churches. Revelation 1:20
The seven chakras are thus symbolized in the book of Revelation as candlesticks, churches and seven seals. The seven stars are the radiating currents and vibrations of the chakras that create the elements (tattvas).
The higher state of consciousness, with its different levels, has to be realized here on earth, where we are able to perceive God through direct experience. God-realization is not attained merely by dying, thinking that our faith will take us to heaven to meet God. Higher consciousness is not something we have to find, or develop, acquire, possess, or to build up, because it is always present here and now. It is not out there or up there somewhere. The kingdom of God is within you. It is here, and is available at all times, but because we are not giving any attention and awareness to it, the Truth/Reality remains hidden from us. The belief that one is the ego obscures the realization of the reality of the Self.
The constant identification with the body-mind-ego complex keeps us in bondage. The ego deals in form and definition, so it is unable to comprehend the Self, which is beyond all form. The sun is always shining brightly until the clouds cover it, or so it seems. Moving away the clouds does not cause the sun to shine but merely reveals that which was temporarily obscured. Similarly, the higher conscious Reality or Infinite Presence is always present. Its realization occurs of itself when the obstacles to it are removed. The Self is awareness itself, and behind this luminous Self, the individual consciousness, is the one effulgent ocean of reality, Supreme Consciousness.
Everybody in this world has descended from the subtle causal state to the gross physical state. The majority of the souls here on earth have no conscious awareness or knowledge of the divine nature of the being that dwells within their own material form of mind-body. We feel finite, separate from the Divine Reality we call God, separate from one another, and more identified with this physical form. God is one Supreme Being undivided and unrelated to creation, and yet the same God is also made up of an infinite number of individual shining souls. Just as there is a boundless ocean of water behind each and every wave, similarly the Supreme Consciousness is behind each and every individual consciousness.
The one Supreme Consciousness has extended Itself from Its etemal pure-mind state to appear asinnumerable individual souls living in a temporal universe of forms. Through different stages of the process of involution, the divine, infinite and undivided God has descended into the human physical form to manifest as individual souls.
God is in the heart and soul of every being. This is the all-pervasiveness of God as He manifests as innumerable individual souls. And yet God remains undivided; the Supreme Being never loses Itself by becoming many. Just as water can be taken from the ocean and divided into numerous cups, without losing its quality of water, similarly, the ocean of God’s presence behind the wave of your consciousness always retains its original nature.

From the sahasrara chakra Divinity descends to the ajna chakra, located at the junction of the eyebrows. Here the soul makes its entry into the physical body through the negative pole, the medulla oblongata, of the ajna chakra. It is here that the individual soul has come into existence, distinct from God. The soul has not forgotten God, but there is a separation, a duality. As the soul descends from ajna chakra in the astral spine, to the fifth centre, visuddha chakra, at the level of the throat, the soul is no longer in union with God, as it was in the ajna chakra.
The soul still feels God’s presence; there is still an intensity of feeling for God but it is not very clear. The soul continues its journey downward in the spine to the level of the heart, and anahata chakra. At this level of the descent, the soul has awareness of God but the intensity of feeling for God is lessened. God is still within the heart and soul of the individual being as it descends through the chakras, but as it descends further below the three highest chakras, the soul’s awareness becomes more and more obscured. Below the level of the heart the soul enters the next centre at the navel, manipura chakra. Here identification with the body-mind-ego is beginning to take effect, and the awareness of God is fading.
The soul then passes deeper downward in the spine through the svadhisthana chakra, becoming more entangled in bondage to matter.
Finally, the soul reaches the lowest centre at the base of the spine, muladdhara chakra. In this last stage of the downward journey through the chakras the soul comes to rest. Now the soul has become more aware and identified with gross matter, with the material form of the body and the mind. It has also forgotten God. Clothed in the physical form, the individual soul forgets its real identity. The soul is now identified with the three lower centres of consciousness and in its relationship to the world functions and operates from those chakras.
The primal life-force known as kundalini sakti now lies latent and ‘coiled up’ waiting at the base of the spine in the muladhara chakra. The physical, astral and causal bodies in which the soul is clothed are integrated and work together.
The coiled knot in the muladhara chakra prevents the soul from being released from material bondage. Due to ignorance (avidya) the soul becomes oblivious to its eternal, ever perfect and immutable divine nature. And as a result, the world of objectivity and duality becomes more pronounced, and demands more and more attention of the individual soul.
This process can also be symbolized by forgotten knowledge of the Art of Alchemy and the journey from 12 dna strand conciousness, knowledge and enlightment to the physical 2 dna strand consciousness and 3 dimensional of reality of this matter-world. The mind and knowledge become fragments of the Divine and both knowledge and Divine Powers (consciousness) lies then latent or in a dream-sleep stasis.
The Art of Life or Art of Alchemy is then to free the soul from matter or free the light from matter and working upwards. This downwards journey of humankind has closed the seven energy chakras and the spiritual journey is to opening them again and find the re-union with God and your True Higher self.
I [inner self] and the Father [Supreme Self] are One (John 10: 30)
Know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free (John 8: 32)
Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21)
Be still, and know that I am God (Psalms 46:10)
The Father is in me and I am in the Father (John 10: 34, 38)

Man is a fragment of the Divine with all divine powers latent in him and is sown into the field of Nature in order that by evolution he may develop those powers. The spirit comes down from plane to plane involving into grosser and grosser matter till it reaches the mineral kingdom. Earth’s root chakra—the electromagnetic vortex for the Earth’s kundalini energy. This change from earth to water to fire to air to ether, or solid to liquid to gaseous to ether, occurs as Kundalini energy.

V.I.T.R.I.O.L. is an acronym which stands for Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem – Visit the inner earth and in rectifying it you will find the hidden stone.

The stone that the builders rejected is the the Eternal Stone of the Wise, it could be compiared to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (science and doctrines of this world) that reject wisdom of God (Tree of Life and the Stone of The Wise (Philosopher´s Stone). This can also be compaired to to the process of enlightmnet. This world want´s keep humankind in a state of the mind of a 2 dna strand conciousness (3 dimenionsal reality), and not a 12 dna strands consciousness or a 5 th dimensional reality.

O secret of secrets that art hidden in the being of all that lives, lord secret and most holy—source of light, source of life, source of love, source of liberty, be thou ever constant and mighty within us that we may forever remain in thine abundant joy. The Secret Stone made without hands is the Eternal Stone of the Wise, which will become the Mountain of Initiation, where-by the whole Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God. Therefore, visit the interior of the earth and purifying you will find the hidden stone.
The stone of the alchemists is that which has to be worked and well squared. The foundation stone is the prima materia, which is why it is said to be inscribed with the Name. Whilst this Name is not sounded for anyone in the low degrees of initiation, it is the Name of the Godhead, that drop of the Godhead which must be released from the stone, to return to its origins. It is the Sword in the Stone of the Arthurian cycles.
The First Magisterium, the Lunar Stone is created. It represents gaining control over the body, so that every fiber and tissue can be completely relaxed. The Second Magisterium, the Solar Stone, is achieved when the mind is controlled through willpower, so that fear and ego do not interfere. The Third Magisterium is the union of the Lunar and Solar Stones with the cosmic presence to create the Stellar Stone or Astral Body. Seen another way, the Conjunction is the union of the Lunar Stone with the Solar Stone, the Marriage of the King and Queen, to create the Lesser Stone in which we become centered and gain control over mind and body. Coagulation, then, is the union of the Lesser Stone with the powers of the Above to create the Greater Stone of the Golden or Astral Body. Having achieved that Greater Stone, you have broken free of genetic, environmental, and even astrological restraints to your being and are free to express the bliss of your true Presence—the Stone. At this stage, you are born into the Universe and have arrived at a new plateau, the Greater Mysteries of the ancients. This is true atonement (at-one-ment) with the mind of God.

As Bohme plainly describes it, ” a very dark disesteemed Stone, of a grey colour,” it is inevitable that it should be compared in the mind—whether versed or not in the labyrinth of the Hermetic subject—with that Stone rejected of the builders, which is a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offence.’ But as Christ is also the Stone of Salvation,’ so is the Philosophical Stone that in which ” lieth the highest tincture “. If there is anything valid in analogies it will be seen, I think, that no other can be more exact and catholic after its own kind. But I am concerned at the present stage only with the fact of the comparison so formulated and not with its inherent value. Having obtained in this manner what may be termed a clear issue, an unthinkable proposition remains. If the Stone of Alchemy is Christ, it is to be understood spiritually.

The alchemists often referred to the hidden essence of First Matter in a substance as its inner “star,” and appearances of the First Matter are often accompanied by displays of light. In this sense, the First Matter is the Anima Mundi (Soul of the World), and is present in all things. Alchemists believed the First Matter also existed in the human body as the eternal star which we call the soul. The spiritual work in alchemy focused on purifying or rectifying the First Matter within and, thereby, perfecting the very soul of the alchemist.
St. John used the idea of twelve-fold perfection in his Book of Revelation in the image of the twelve foundation stones of the sacred city. … for the jewel of our inner self — our true divine nature — which shines with an eternal star-like brilliance.

The divine soul latent in matter and also known by the name of anima mundi. This imprisoned soul of the creator is the animating, humanizing factor of the material conglomerate of the human body. The soul, called the Anima in psychology, is feminine and is “the archetype of life itself”.

The Cubic Stone. For at the end of the alchemical process, we arrive back where we started from, only now empowered and embodied in an eternal Stone that represents an incorruptible higher consciousness. There is one last message hidden in the Azoth drawing. All the Latin words contained in the outer ring that connects the rays of transformation spell out a summary of what has taken place: Visite: Inieriora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occuhum Lapidem. This means “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; by setting things right, you will find the hidden Stone.” The first letter of these seven Latin words spells out the Hermetic word VITRIOL. Vitriol is the first of the arcana, which are secret chemicals in a laboratory experiment that summarizes the entire process of transformation. Acidic Vitriol is the fiery liquid energy that drives physical transmutation and becomes the brain ambrosia or hormone that brings on the materialization of spirit in man. By recognizing and working with the forces of alchemy, anyone can not only tap into hidden sources of creative power but fundamentally transform themselves and their life situations. The seven-stepped Emerald Formula

The feminine knows that what appears to be a constriction and limitation is actually a place of transformation: the earth is the womb of our rebirth. This is reflected in the ancient teaching that the soul can only realize divine truth while in the body. Specifically, one needs the kundalini energy, which is an earth energy, in order to reach Reality. The world of matter may appear to deny us our spiritual nature, to cover it in darkness and desire. But matter has a divine energy that is necessary for the soul to fully realize its divine nature.° What is true for the individual is also true for the whole world. There is a power in the earth that is central to our collective evolution, to the awakening of the soul of the world. This is the secret substance of creation that was known by some of the Gnostics, who worked to liberate its energy. One of the Gnostic teachings is that through his crucifixion, Christ, the awakener, liberated the light within matter for the whole world. The church repressed the Gnostic teachings, but the knowledge remained in the alchemical tradition, which—rather than seeking the light in the heavens—looked for it in the darkness of the prima materia, the undifferentiated primal matter of creation. In our inner journey we realize that we are our own alchemist, transforming the darkness of our psyche into gold, discovering the light hidden in the prima materia of our shadow and instinctual nature. In our darkness lie a knowing and also an energy that are necessary for our journey:
The inner journey takes us into the depths of our own being where the primal power of the Self exists as undifferentiated energy. We need this energy tor the work; we need the power or our natural being in order to be ourself and live true to this unconditioned self.”
Without the power of our “natural being” there can be no transformation. We also need the wisdom and self-knowledge that come from sincere self-inquiry, from exploring our darkness. The statement of Christ, “Be ye therefore wise as serpents,” points to this quality of wisdom.
So because the Source has two purposes, you have two purposes. Your outer purpose is to gain knowledge, skills, talents, and wisdom through experience, thus becoming a co-creator with the Source. Your inner purpose is to discover your true essence, your divinity, your zero-point Self. As our species evolves into the Next Human, the frequency of the Earth will elevate from a three-dimensional frequency to a higher fourth-dimensional frequency. This is achieved by becoming heart-centered. This “higher frequency” Earth is indeed the “new Earth” spoken of in Revelation 21:1-4. And in this paragraph, the phrase “his name is God-with-them” is nearly identical to when Jesus said, “the Kingdom of God is within you” in Luke 17:21. This is the “new heaven.” It refers to the return movement of the One. This is the discovery of your inner Self, your true Self that you have only forgotten. This has been mistranslated by biblical scholars to imply that God is an egoic personality and therefore must be worshipped as a governor or “Lord” that is separate from you. And this is why so many people continue to suffer—because they are constantly searching for the divine outside of the Self.

Essential to this inner work is accepting the darkness as leis. Only when it is accepted without judgment does our darkness transform and reveal its hidden nature, become the gold it always was. The alchemists understood that the real transformation is the transformation of consciousness, which enables us to recognize and then work with the light that is always present in the darkness. Working within ourselves, we are also working with the whole. The individual is the microcosm of the whole. Through our instinctual self we connect with all of life. This is one reason why the mils is so important: it gives us access to the world of creation and enables us to reveal the light hidden in the earth. Through our higher centers we connect with inner dimensions of light; through our lower centers we are part of the created world and can access its secrets. The light hidden in creation has a different quality from the light of the world of God’s command. This light, called by the alchemists the lumen naturae, reveals many of the secrets of creation, including its magical nature.” We need to be able to work with the light hidden in matter, just as we have learned to work with the light of our higher spiritual centers. Finally, we need to bring the two lights together so that a third light can be born. In this new light we will be able to see and tully participate in a new revelation: a new understanding of what it means to be a human being.
THE UNIQUENESS OF THE PATH
How can we help awaken the light in the darkness, the hidden magic of matter? How can we play our part in this coming together of the higher and lower? From the perspective of oneness, we can recognize that the world of light needs this world of creation in order to reveal itself. Without this dimension of shadows there can be no revelation. The different worlds are inter-penetrating, interdependent dimensions which together reveal the One. Even to see it in terms of opposites coming together just continues the paradigm of duality.
Just as the lower needs the higher, the higher also needs the lower. What matters is how we relate to this unfolding, interdependent oneness. Do we stay within the attitudes of the past, seeking only to ascend, or do we recognize the potency of darkness and density and become receptive to its magic? Do we dare to appreciate the true wonder of the world of creation? All is He, but we are needed to become aware of the meaning of this oneness: how the worlds of creation and of God’s command together reveal His secret. We each contribute something different, unique to our own specific destiny. “Take thyself for a light,” said the Buddha to his disciple, Ananda. The path is created with each step we take; it is our own willingness to let go of the old and welcome the light of the new that will reveal what is needed from us.
The world is a living spiritual being. This was understood by the ancient philosophers and the alchemists who referred to the spiritual essence of the world as the anima mundi, the “Soul of the World.” They regarded the World Soul as a pure ethereal spirit diffused throughout all nature, the divine essence that embraces and energizes all life in the universe. Throughout history our understanding of the world as a living being with a spiritual essence has dramatically changed. Plato understood that “the cosmos is a single Living Creature which contains all living creatures within it.” While this tradition was carried on by the Gnostics and later the alchemists, the church fathers imaged a world that was neither divine nor sacred. A transcendent divinity was the source ofall creation, and humanity lived in exile from heaven in a state of sin. This doctrine created a split between matter and spirit, causing the world to be seen as separate from its creator.
The alchemists continued to explore the anima mundi. While the church looked for light in the heavens, the alchemists sought the light hidden in matter. They understood that there was a sacred essence in the fabric of creation, which through their experiments and imag-ination they worked to release. For the alchemists the anima munch is the divine spark in matter, the “philosophical Mercury,” which is the “universal and scintillating fire in the light of nature, which carries the heavenly spirit with it.” Alchemy is concerned with turning lead into gold, liberating the light hidden in the darkness—”the fiery sparks of the world soul, i.e. the light of nature… dispersed or sprinkled throughout the structure of the great world into all fruits of the elements everywhere.” The alchemists also understood that there is a connection between the anima mundi and the soul or innermost secret of man. The source of the wisdom and knowledge of the all-pervading essence of the anima mundi was “the innermost and most secret numinosum of man.”
In the last century Carl Jung rediscovered the wis-dom of the alchemical opus and showed how alchemical symbols image the process of inner transformation that can release this hidden light. Jung differentiated between two forms of spiritual light: lumen dei, the light proceed-ing from the spiritual realm of a transcendent God, and lumen naturae, the light hidden in matter and the forces of nature.
The Divine Light may be experienced through revelation and spiritual practices that give us access to our transcendent Self. The Light of Nature needs to be released through inner alchemy so that it can work creatively in the world. The tradition of alchemy reinterpreted into the language of inner transformation is a key to help us to liberate our natural light and to transform the world. The alchemical light hidden in darkness is our own light, which is also the divine spark within matter. Our natural light is part of the light of the World Soul.
This alchemical unlocking of matter can be associated with freeing, or awakening, the World Soul, the anima mundi. As a microcosm of the whole, the individual can participate directly in the alchemical process that liberates this light, a light that is needed to understand the mysteries of creation and the ways of working with its magical nature. With the lumen naturae we can once again learn how to unlock the secrets of nature, so that we no longer have to attack and destroy the natural world in order to survive.
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
As a result of Jung’s writings on alchemy, we have begun to understand the nature of the inner alchemical work. The work on the alchemical lead—the prima materia, that which is “glorious and vile, precious and of small account and is found everywhere”—is the work on the shadow, the rejected and unacknowledged parts of our psyche. The philosopher’s stone, the gold made from the lead, is our own true nature, the Self. Rather than a transcendent, disembodied divinity, alchemy reveals a divine light that exists in the very depths of our psyche. This light hidden in darkness, the lumen naturae, is also our instinctual self and natural way of being, which until it is revealed is covered over by patterns of conditioning and the layers of the false self. What is the difference between the light discovered in the depths of the psyche and the light of our tran-scendent divine Self glimpsed in meditation or other experiences? It is the same light experienced in different ways. The Sufis know that the Beloved, the source of all light, has both an immanent and a transcendent quality. He whom we love is both “nearer to him than his jugular vein” and “beyond even his idea of the beyond.”

The Self, “larger than large and smaller than small,” has the same dual quality. The yogi deep in meditation and the alchemist in his laboratory are seeking the same light, the same divine nature. Everything that we experience has a dual nature, a masculine and a feminine aspect, and the same is true of the light of the Self. It can be experienced in its masculine form as a pure transcendent light, consciousness without the constrictions of the psyche or the physical world. In meditation we can first glimpse and then rest in our eternal and infinite nature, and come to know a reality not defined or constricted by our body or the manifest world. This is a reality of light upon light, our colorless and formless essence. We can also come to know our divine nature in its feminine, embodied nature, as the light of being, our natural wisdom, the gold of our true nature. In this light we experience and know the divine within creation, the way our Beloved reveals Himself in a multitude of forms, each form a different expression of His infinite being. We see how each color, each smell, every taste, even every thought and feeling, is a unique expression of the divine. In this way we come to know Him in His creation in a way that is hidden in the transcendent. In this revela-tion we see that each thing is unique and that all things are one, and we discover the relationship of the parts to the whole—the interconnected wonder of creation. We see the rich tapestry of life and know that it is one Being revealing Itself in so many ways. If we are not to remain in the paradigm of duality, living our inherited split between masculine and feminine, spirit and matter, we need to acknowledge both of these aspects. We cannot afford to follow the footsteps of the patriarchal church fathers and seek only a transcendent light, look only towards heaven. We also need to know the light hidden in matter and understand the magic of creation that it reveals. We need to know the mysteries of creation as celebrated in the most sacred text of the alchemists, the Emerald Tablet, attributed to Hermes Trismegistos:
What is below is like that which is above, and what is above is like that which is below, to ac-complish the miracles of the one thing.w
The light hidden in matter is the one light experienced within the mysteryofcreation, the hidden treasure revealed through the dance of multiplicity. The creation of the manifest world is a revelation of the hidden nature of the divine, as expressed in the haclith, “I was a hidden treasure and I longed to be known, so I created the world.” But we can only experience the wonder and know the true nature of this revelation through the light hidden within it. Just as He has hidden His secret within us—”Man is My secret and l am his secret”—so has He hidden Himself within His creation. Sometimes, in moments amidst the beauty or glory of nature, in the vastness of the stars or the perfection of the early morning dew on a flower, we glimpse this wonder. The light hidden in matter breaks through and we stand in awe before our Creator, as reflected in the words of the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins:
The world is charged with the grandeur of God. It will flame out, like shining from shook foil)’
Through this light we can awaken to thedivine nature of life and experience the real beauty of His revelation. There is only one light—”as above so below”—and yet the lumen naturae has a different quality to the lumen dei, allowing a different quality of revelation. In His creation He reveals Himself in a way that is not revealed by His transcendent light, the lumen dei. What is true for the Creator is also true for us who are “made in His image.”
The light that is discovered in the depths of the psyche, through the work on the shadow and the inner alchem ical opus, reveals part of our divine nature that is hidden from a purely transcendent consciousness. We come to know ourself and our Beloved in a new way. For each of us this revelation is unique. Part of the wonder of creation is how she offers a different experience to each of us; even the same apple tasted by two people will be a different experience. Through His light we can see life as it really is, in the uniqueness of our own experience of it and not just through the veils of our projections, and so taste the divine uniqueness of each moment. At the same time we experience this uniqueness as part of a greater oneness. We see the threads that connect together all of life; we see how each part reflects the whole.
Whoever can’t see the whole in every part plays at blind man’s bluff; A wise man tastes the Tigris in every sip.
In our deeper knowing we understand this deep con-nectedness of all of life. And yet the church, the rise of Western science, and a growing culture of materialism have effectively banished the anima mundi from our collective imagination, until, in the words of Jung, “man himself has ceased to be the microcosm and his anima is no longer the consubstantial scintilla or spark of the anima mundi, the World Soul.”” How can we redeem this relationship, recreate this connection in our imagi-nation and inner work? How can we return our light to the World Soul?
Once we make the simple acknowledgment that we are a part of the whole, then a connection is made between our light and the world. We make this connec-tion with our consciousness and with our imagination; then through this connection our light begins to flow. In this way we begin to redeem the work of the whole. These connections create pathways of light that find their way through the darkness of the collective psyche. Just as in our personal psyche, there are blocks and places of resistance to this flow of light; and there are also places of power, creativity, and unexpected qualities.
The World Soul is not a fixed or defined substance, but a living substance made out of the hopes, dreams, and deepest imaginings of humanity and of all creation. This is the home of creation’s collective memories and the myths of humanity. Here are the archetypes and powers that define our life. Here are hidden places of magical meaning, places where dreams can come into being. We have lived for so long in the stark barrenness of a rational landscape that we have forgotten the potency that lies beneath the surface.
Flowing through the pathways created by our conscious connection to the anima munch, our light will find its way to places of power that are within the world, places where deeper layers of meaning are waiting to come alive. We presently see the material world as something apart from ourselves, a solid and enduring object without life or magic.
Like the seventeenth-century scientists who decided animals had no feelings and thus could be dissected without suffering, we feel free to inflict our will upon our world, pillaging it for our own gain without any thought to the suffering and damage we are subjecting it to. Caught up in our materialistic drives, we may not recognize that this image of the world is an illusion, an insubstantial dream that can easily alter or dissolve as new forces come into play.
As our light makes its connections within the World Soul, it will activate some of these forces, energies that are waiting to liberate the world from this destructive illusion. We know how this works in our own alchemical journey, how what we find beneath the surface changes our values in unexpected ways, how connections are then made and synchronicities occur that before would have been unbelievable. As we make these connections, we will begin to see that the world and our own selves both are more magical than we know.
This work of connecting our light to the world does not need to be done through a mass movement, or by millions of people. For centuries a few alchemists held these secrets of inner transformation against the powerful forces of the church and the establishment. The real work is always done by a small number of individuals. What matters is the level of participation: whether we dare to make a real commitment to the work of the soul. Unlike the alchemists living in their laboratories, we do not need to give up our ordinary outer life—everyday life can also be a necessary balance and protection against the strange delusions so easily created by the inner world. But we do need to recognize that there is a certain work that needs to be done, and that we can no longer stand on the sidelines and watch our collective dreams spin out of control.
Our culture may have isolated us within our individual self, separated us from the magic of life—but once again this is just a surface mirage. We are all connected and part of the living substance of creation. Within every cell of our being, every spark of consciousness, we have a knowing of oneness. Our own inner journey cannot be separate from the journey of the whole. An inner journey separate from the whole is no real journey; it is just another illusion created by an ego that wants to protect itself.
The substance of our soul is part of the fabric of life, the tapestry of creation in which are woven the unicorns and monsters of our dreams as well as the skyscrapers of our cities. The inner and outer worlds are not sepa-rate—despite all the efforts of our rational culture to have us believe they are. The recent dramas of terrorism have once again brought demons into our living rooms, and we sense there is nowhere really safe from these shadows. But we do not need to simply be victims of these archetypal nightmares. By evoking the real magic that comes from within, we can work to balance the light and the dark, and creatively participate in changing the dreams that define our collective life.
The light of the World Soul is waiting to be used to connect us with the inner powers that belong to matter and to life itself. The real world is an enchanted place, full of magical powers waiting to be used. And, as the alchemists understood, the anima mundi is a creative force: “it is the artist, the craftsperson, the ‘inner Vision’ which shapes and differentiates the prime matter, giving it form.”‘
At the present time our collective culture sees life primarily from a material perspective—we worship the god of consumerism, making acquisition our life’s goal. We are imprisoned within matter. We have forgotten the symbolic and sacred meaning of the outer world.
Alienated from our soul, we have alienated creation from its deeper meaning. And because we have denied the world its divinity, it is slowly dying. The real alchemical work is to liberate creation from this imprisonment—to awaken life to its meaning.
We have to free the light that is within us and within the world. A transcendent image of the divine will only give us access to a transcendent light. We need the light hidden in matter, the gold that is within lead. When this light comes alive within life, it can change the patterns of creation and create the forms of the future that will bring life back into harmony. It can manifest its unifying nature. The alchemists understood the nature of this light:
It is the father of every miraculous work in the whole world…. Its power is perfect if it is converted to earth.”
Working within the world, this power is the light and power of the divine made manifest. The light that is within our own psyche is the light within the anima mundi. In the depth of ourself we discover this essential oneness. This is the same awareness as the yogi’s realization that one’s true nature and unchanging self (atman) is the Universal Self (Atman). What is within us is within everything. Once we understand this truth, we step outside of the parameters of our individual self and come to realize the power that is within us. This shift in awareness is a very simple step that has profound consequences.
The human is a universe, and “his physical personality is a golden embryo suspended within the brilliant shell of his auric sheaths.” As the Macrocosmic Egg is the universe and its presumed borders—”‘the brilliant chiton’ or ‘the cloud,” as the ancient Greeks called it—”the Microcosmic Egg is the human aura.” We sleep in our egg, embedded in multiple invisible worlds until we start to wake up and precipitate the golden germ to recreate the ego along cosmic lines. When we break the Cosmic Egg, we shatter the personality and release our spiritual nature, the golden embryo, “into that Universal being from which it originally emanated.”
“They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Mt. 24:30) .
Another sign of the way of salvation by Jesus Christ, was Jonah in the belly of a great fish three days of day and night. … great fish; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights (or three days of day and night) in the heart of the earth.
Christ visit the heart of earth for three days, and then the living stone is Christ and the Philosopher´s Stone this must be related to foundation stone and Prima Materia, and the alchemical transformation process and V.I.T.R.I.O.L.
V.I.T.R.I.O.L. is an acronym which stands for Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem – Visit the inner earth and in rectifying it you will find the hidden stone.
The White and Red Stone in Alchemy
YOUR DNA CONTAINS A MESSAGE
The White and Red Stone in Alchemy
YOUR DNA CONTAINS A MESSAGE
Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Symbolically, alchemy represents our attempts to refine or improve ourselves Individually and collectively.
Proverbs 15:24, The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
To complete His work he has sent his Messenger with the spirit or science of the truth.
Remember the words of Master Jesus who said, “Be ye faithful unto Death and I will give thee a Crown of Life”
All you are doing, in truth, is getting your consciousness in harmony with your God consciousness! And mystical theology confirmed the vision of truth revealed by nature and alchemy: The true Knowledge is God.
The truth is linked to your DNA light codes. In each one of you, your DNA is coded to respond to truth. In that way, the truth will set you free. The DNA within your cells contains a message to yourself; it is the blueprint, the code to help you remember your greatness. When we agreed to this experience, we agreed to put a safety net in place. This is the peace you discover when you find the truth held within your soul. It is the peace that indicates you have safely arrived. It is my peace within your being. It is peace that flows throughout your being as you come into the realisation that you have found what you were searching for. When you land on the safety net of peace, you know your search is over.
Any time you feel the pain of separation or the lack of peace, look within and find me within yourself, remembering then who you are.
The cycle of lives only exists for you until you choose to release yourself from that guise of separateness and return back to your omniscient self. That is the reason you chose your lifespan—to pass the tasks you set yourself, knowing that you could take one or more lifetimes to do this. After passing the set tasks, you would move up a level, so to speak, and be faced with a new challenge, a new task.
Your purpose is to rediscover yourself and reveal yourself in your divinity and alchemy is the Divine gift from God to realize this. This world has earlier unplugged ten of humans 12 DNA strands from this Divine truth.
You are the New Jerusalem, the evolved psyche in Oneness with Universal Life. Within the city is the Garden of Eden where the Tree of Life stands.
Revelations 21:6 says; the water of life is the knowledge pouring within us from Universal Life itself. It is clear as crystal symbolizes that clarity we receive about life from the Source which is the essence from where all things originate. It pours from the pineal which is the Lamb and the Universal Life is the light that fills the body giving us wisdom.
Genesis 2:10 says; And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
This verse corresponds to the description of the brain. In the arachnoid layer and the pia matter flows a river of cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and provides a soft fluid protective cushion. The cerebrospinal fluid originates from the walls of an interconnected cave located deep within the brain. The chambers of this cave, the ventricles are four in number. These ventricles are the four heads mentioned in genesis 2:10
The Garden of Eden is the right hemisphere of the brain; it is the 90% we don’t use. The left side of the brain is the 10%. The 10 % on left side is your portion; the 90% on the right is God’s. In order to get to the right, you have to tithe, give the 10% of you mind, not your wallet. In the macrocosm the10% is the material world, 90% is the Quintessence which scientist has named dark matter. Dark matter is the essence that permeates everything. It is life force, Universal Life, in the mythology of Star Wars it is the Force. This is what we tap into in the right hemisphere of the brain.
Three Realms of Nlanifestation
The final, seventh rubric of the Emerald Tablet identifies its author, the revealer of the Emerald Formula, and is known as the Trinity Rubric: Therefore am I called Thrice Greatest Hermes, having all three parts of the wisdom of the Whole Universe. Herein have I completely explained the Operation of the Sun. What makes Hermes thrice greatest? Through his enlightenment, Hennes has conquered all three levels of reality; the Spiritual World of the subtle mind and imagination, the Mental World of our personality and influences of our hidden souls, and the Physical World of gross matter, our human bodies, as well as the Stone, which is the ultimate spiritual embodiment. These levels are represented esoterically as the Sun, Moon, and Earth. In alchemical terms they are higher states of consciousness called Sulfur, Mercury, and Salt. The entity named Hermes Trismegistus has also experienced three incarnations. He first appeared as Thoth, whom the Egyptians worshipped as the God of Thought and who preserved the knowledge of ultimate truth through the great, cleansing Flood, so that the worthy still might have a chance at transformation. Next, he appeared as Akhenaten, the pharaoh who worshipped the Aten, the One Thing, and sought to live in accordance with the providence of the One Mind. Thirdly, he came to us as Balinas, the misfit youth whose rediscovery of the tablet transformed his life, and whose tireless work in Alexandria made it possible for the contents of the miraculous document to be transmitted to our own era.
These incarnations of Hermes correspond to the three great cosmic emanations. First was the original act of Thought, the creation of the universe, the grand union of Fire and Water accomplished by the action of the One Mind on the One Thing. Second was the Birth of Light within matter, the rise of spirit and creation of consciousness to accomplish the evolution of soul. Finally came the Virgin Birth from the union of spirit and soul within man, which represents the second creation, man purified and reborn on a higher level. This reunion of spirit and soul is the Christ consciousness that was demonstrated not only in the life of Jesus, but in the life of Balinas and others as well, and which any person can obtain having been shown the way—what Hermes called the Pattern. The all-encompassing Pattern of Hermes is nothing less than the perfection of the cosmic soul. That this process is evolutionary is evidenced by nature herself, just as we can witness its Pattern in our own lives. The alchemical process for achieving the perfection of nature is what is referred to in the last line of the last rubric of the Emerald Tablet. The “Operation of Sun” is a way to describe God in the most objective way: the conversion of energy into matter. The self-sufficient sun, feeding off itself through all eternity, is a symbol of the same process going on within our own souls if we only tap into it. The hidden Sun of our deepest being is also like a nuclear reaction that drives our physical and spiritual transformation.
VITRIOL . the Visita represents a start of a journey or spiritual transformation to find the Lapidem (meaning the Stone). In three days it passed through the process of Black, White, Red
VITRIOL means; “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; by setting things right, you will find the hidden Stone.”
“For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days”
For at the end of the alchemical process, we arrive back where we started from, only now empowered and embodied in an eternal Stone that represents an incorruptible higher consciousness. There is one last message hidden in the Azoth drawing. All the Latin words contained in the outer ring that connects the rays of transformation spell out a summary of what has taken place: Visita: Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occutum Lapidem. This means “Visit the innermost parts of the earth; by setting things right, you will find the hidden Stone.” The first letter of these seven Latin words spells out the Hermetic word VITRIOL. Vitriol is the first of the arcana, which are secret chemicals in a laboratory experiment that summarizes the entire process of transformation. Acidic Vitriol is the fiery liquid energy that drives physical transmutation and becomes the brain ambrosia or hormone that brings on the materialization of spirit in man. By recognizing and working with the forces of alchemy, anyone can not only tap into hidden sources of creative power but fundamentally transform themselves and their life situations.

Red (= sun) and white (= moon) are the alchemical colours
Red stone is the gold and the white stone the silver
Scriptures in Revelation mention the; White Stone
The hidden manna in Revelation 2:17
In alchemy, a tree with moons denotes the lunar opus (the Lesser Work) and the tree with suns the solar opus (the Great Work)
The Three Principles being enclosed in the vessel, or Athanor, which is man himself, and subjected to a gentle fire—the Incendium Amoris—the process of the Great Work, the mystic transmutation of natural into spiritual man (the living stone), can begin. This work, like the ingredients which compose it, has “three numbers”: and the first matter, in the course of its transmutation, assumes three successive colours: the Black, the White, and the Red. These three colours are clearly analogous to the three traditional stages of the Mystic Way: Purgation, Illumination, Union.
The First Magisterium, the Lunar Stone is created. It represents gaining control over the body, so that every fiber and tissue can be completely relaxed. The Second Magisterium, the Solar Stone, is achieved when the mind is controlled through willpower, so that fear and ego do not interfere. The Third Magisterium is the union of the Lunar and Solar Stones with the cosmic presence to create the Stellar Stone or Astral Body. Seen another way, the Conjunction is the union of the Lunar Stone with the Solar Stone, the Marriage of the King and Queen, to create the Lesser Stone in which we become centered and gain control over mind and body. Coagulation, then, is the union of the Lesser Stone with the powers of the Above to create the Greater Stone of the Golden or Astral Body. Having achieved that Greater Stone, you have broken free of genetic, environmental, and even astrological restraints to your being and are free to express the bliss of your true Presence—the Stone. At this stage, you are born into the Universe and have arrived at a new plateau, the Greater Mysteries of the ancients. This is true atonement (at-one-ment) with the mind of God.
The Eucharistic Bread signifies the super-substantial sustenance, and the Wine is arch-natural life. It is for this reason that the Alchemical Stone at the red has a higher tingeing and transmuting power than the Stone at the white. The first matters of the alchemical work, to make use of another language of subterfuge, are Sulphur, Mercury and Salt; but these are the elements of the Philosophers and not those of the ordinary kind. In other words, common Sulphur and Mercury correspond to the Bread and Wine before consecration, and the philosophical elements are those which have been transubstantiated by the power of the secret words. That which is produced is called Panis Vivus et Vitalis and Vinum Mirabile . instead of the daily meat and drink by which we ask to be sustained in the Lord’s Prayer. The Salt is that which is called the formula of consecration; it is that which salts and transmutes the natural earth. When Chris( said: “If the Salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? “this can be understood of the super-excellent and extra-valid consecration; the removal of the Graal signifies that of a certain arch-natural salting, yet the salt of sufficing grace remains, like that of nature, and in its way also it communicates. Christ further said: “You are the salt of the earth”–and this is the true priesthood.
“He will do even greater things than these”

The final excerpt from this central section is headed “A philosophicall worke” (pp. 478-84), and is again extracted from Coclson’s Philosophia Hamra° (1668). It details sonic of the key beliefs which underlie the ehymical opus, and, in particular, the Paracelsian concept of the Ina prima – the three principles present in all matter, namely Salt. Sulphur. and Mercury. or. as they are called in this work. “philosophical Niter,” “subtile Salt,” and “fixed Salt”:
The earth contains in it the seeds of all things and their operations. It is the center foundation and Mother of all things. Therein are great secrets: and the first begotten heavenly spirit of Nature is secretly shut up and hidden therein; Also in the center thereof I yes hidden a virgin Earth consisting in the 3 principles. If thou knowest how to separate them out of it and to joync them againc philosophically thou shalt have the greatest treasure. (p. 478)
The excerpt moves on to instruct the reader in the best method to separate these principles from earth, the prima materia, or “first matter” from which the chymieal opus proceeds. We arc advised to take a portion of fresh earth, “which is sufficiently impregnated with the beams of the Sun and Moone and other stars” (p. 478). and to “divide it into eaquall pans measured” (p. 479). The three principles are then extracted by subjecting the prima niateria to simple processes of “boylcing, filtrating. evaporating, congealing” (p. 479). recipes for each of which are then given. The final outcome of this work is the Philosopher’s Stone itself.

ALCHEMY AND SUPERNATURAL LIFE
The gift of Alchemy is the gift of supernatural life and that the Stone is Christ—that is to say, Christ the Spirit. ” This is the noble precious Stone—Lapis Philosophorum—the Philosopher’s Stone, which the Magi do find, which tinctureth Nature and generateth a new Son in the old.” It is at once manifest and hidden : it is hidden in this world and yet may be had everywhere. ” And this Stone is Christ, the Son of the Living God, Which discovereth Itself in all those that seek and find it.” The apostles ” went about with this Stone, in power and doing miracles “, but it has been persecuted always by the schools of the worldly wise. It is offered by God and bestowed on man ; it is to be had by those who desire it ; and the power of the whole Deity lies therein.’
Whether it can be accommodated or not to the subject-matter of alchemical symbolism and its literature, we cannot affirm that there is anything remote or unlikely in an attempt to understand the Stone of Philosophy in the sense of that Stone which is Christ : on the contrary, it is the institution of an analogy which is a little of the obvious order, since it is written at large in Scripture.
That Blessed Stone which is the desire of the eyes in Alchemy could do no otherwise than recall the ” Living Stone “, the head in chief of the corner, elect and precious, the Spiritual Rock.* And because according to the alchemists the matter of their Stone is common and mean of price, while the Stone itself is Lapis Exillis as Bohme plainly describes it, ” a very dark disesteemed Stone, of a grey colour,” it is inevitable that it should be compared in the mind—whether versed or not in the labyrinth of the Hermetic subject—with that Stone rejected of the builders, which is a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offence.’ But as Christ is also the Stone of Salvation,’ so is the Philosophical Stone that in which ” lieth the highest tincture “.
If the Stone of Alchemy is Christ, it is to be understood spiritually.
The Stone of which there is no end to the virtue and glory. He who hath it and knoweth it, if he seek, he may find all things whatsoever [which] are in heaven and in earth. It is the Stone which is rejected of the builders and is the Chief Corner Stone. Upon whatsoever it falleth it grindeth it to powder and kindleth a fire therein. All universities seek it but find it not by their seeking sometimes it is found by one that seeketh it rightly. But others [that seek it in self and for their own gain] despise it and cast it away ; and so it remaineth hidden.

Psalm 105:41 says; He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a river in the desert.
For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.
Christ was the Rock out of which the waters flowed
In three days it passed through the process of Black, White, Red
For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days
Foundation Stone – Living Stone
