All true Alchemy teachings are concerned with the transmutation of suffering through Divine Will. The synthesis of all Alchemy teachings is made up of the Trinity of Divine Will, Love and Wisdom which also happens to be represented in the colours of the three fold flame logo that I chose for Freebedo. Blue is divine power/will, gold is for divine wisdom and pink is for divine love. These three teachings came through three beings known as The Pure Ones. They are Hermes, Christ and Buddha. Providing we understand our true nature as light beings we will recognise these three came from one even greater being and separated into three magi or fractal transmissions of truth. Hermes Trismegistus dates back to Atlantis and his name (meaning thrice great) reflects the triple nature of his teachings. Hermes also goes by other names such as Merlin and Thoth to name a couple. All true Alchemy teachings speak of the transmutation of suffering through Divine Will. The second teacher, Christ, represents the transmutation of suffering through love and sacrifice. The third teacher, Buddha, represents the transmutation of suffering through wisdom and compassion. An important point to remember is that all these teachings are contained within your genes and once you reach a high enough vibrational frequency that will be self evident in the way you conduct yourself and the light that you shine into the world.
The Alchemist is seeking to alter consciousness itself by raising his frequency of vibration. He does this by combining thought with awareness. We can experience anything we want in this quantum world (thought) as opposed to the Newtonian or physical world. The Quantum world affects the physical world via our thoughts.
What determines if something is bound by Newtonian Laws or the Laws of Quantum Mechanics?
According to science it is size. Objects larger than one thousandth of an inch obey the Laws of Newtonian Mechanics. This is because they have enough mass to have gravitational fields. Objects less than one thousandth of an inch do not create gravitational fields of any consequence and as such obey Quantum Mechanics Laws. Your thoughts/mental body come under the Quantum realm. The important point is that we actually live in two worlds simultaneously, the Newtonian or Physical world and the Quantum world.
Since we exist in both worlds simultaneously where we place our focus the majority of the time dictates what reality we inhabit.
It is therefore very obvious that we can affect our very own physiology with our mental attention and intention. This is why internal alchemy is so effective. The body and mind are of course intimately connected, research has proven this to be so. We also know this by experiences in our own lives. This has produced new fields in medicine and study such as psychoneuroimmunology. This is the study of how our thoughts and emotions affect our physiology and specifically our immune system.
What did I mean when I said we exist in both worlds simultaneously and where we place our focus the majority of the time dictates what reality we inhabit? A good example of this was seen in an experiment with light particles and what has now been called Bells Theorem. Somehow the intention of a researcher affects the behaviour of subatomic particles. Light can take two very different forms either particle or wave form. If a researcher is looking for light in the form of waves that is what he will find. If he is looking for light in the form of particles that is also what he will find. In other words at the quantum level there is no objective observer. The intention of the researcher affects the outcome.
There are parts of you that are affected by Newtonian Laws, for example if you jumped off a high building you would hit the pavement below assuming nothing was in your way. There are also parts of you that are quantum in nature which means your intention has the last say. Clearly your intention to not hit the pavement below after jumping off a building does not have much sway in the physical/Newtonian world. However there is a place where the Newtonian and Quantum worlds meet. That place is in your mind. The concept of intention is crucial to both quantum physics and internal alchemy. It is through mental attention and personal will or intention that the alchemist is able to affect quantum events within the body/mind/soul apparatus and therefore change what he draws into his life. There is a caveat here not generally recognised by the "self improvement" group and that is associated with the present default frequency vibration of your human electromagnetic field (HEF). If it still vibrates at the level of the general mass consciousness on this planet your manifestations will reflect this. Therefore it is a requirement to progressively transmute lower vibrations (limiting beliefs) to a higher form. In a nutshell always move towards fear. It's only a frequency and cannot harm you. When we move into courage on a regular basis fear is eventually transmuted.
The concept of intention and attention is crucial in the world of alchemy. Although It is through mental attention and personal will (intention) that the alchemist can affect quantum events within the body/mind apparatus it is impossible to predict things! This is an important point. It's not like the Newtonian or physical world where we can predict where a ball will land when we throw it for example. There are in fact only possibilities. Something that existing systems of control would rather you didn't know about. In the quantum world objects may land where you predict them, spin around endlessly or just dissolve into light. The possibilities are endless. There are other strange possibilities after two particles have met. As they spin off and go their own way if one changes the direction of its spin so does the other. As yet this has not been explained by science. Unfortunately humanity at large are rather afraid of unpredictable possibilities since they have forgotten that they are just consciousness having a human experience and would rather the "stability" of existing hierarchal systems even though they are well past their sell by date and indeed limit consciousness. I believe there is an important analogy of surrendering personal will to a higher intelligence/Cosmos/Source/God here if we are to move towards enlightened states of being.
Your whole life has been very much focused on a very physical world. Your attention has been very much focused on the physical aspects of you, your physical body, the survival of this physical body in a very physical environment. In other words the external environment through the medium of the 5 physical senses. What this means is that the awareness of higher frequency aspects of yourself have shut down and you have to a lesser or greater extent moved out of yin/yang balance and created stories or programs in your mind which have up till now dictated your reality. You have been distracted. These stories or programs have created what is commonly known as the ego or lower energy aspects of self. These programs are very real and if you want to experience a more joyful and peaceful existence it is now time to transmute these programs or stories to a higher vibrational frequency. These programs are your filter system. They actually remove you from reality, from the present moment and cause very real issues for you in terms of happiness and symptoms in the physical body. These programs or stories are the veil or illusion which separates you from the higher self/Source/God. The point I really want to make is that it is very necessary during this alchemical change in focus to begin to become aware of the Aura or Human Electromagnetic Field (HEF) because we all shut down this aspect of ourselves. Until you become aware of your energetic system and take back control of it I'm afraid your life will always be at the whim of mass consciousness and your own "stories" or programs. This HEF interpenetrates every atom you have in your physical body and indeed quantum physics tells us that there can be no demarcation point between matter and energy. This is why people are constantly told to go within. In other words to begin to feel the tensions and subtle energies in their own bodies.
At the other extreme of alchemy and after many years of practice it is possible to affect the physical body itself, for example teleportation and bilocation which has been demonstrated by many Masters in the past and recorded!!! This will once again become more public over the next few years.
