Contrary to common belief Alchemy is a philosophical and proto-scientific tradition practiced and methodological structured in India, China, Tibet, Egypt, America and Europe.
Tantra has a complete formal ancestral medicine that is called Siddha Medicine and Shamanism gave basis to herbal treatments and Homeopathic Medicine.
As you know Tantra & Shamanism are interconnected since one of the principles is to guide humanity to understand who we are and where we are going. There is a clear understanding and derivate from one of the 7 universal principles “As above, as below” for Tantra and Shamanism that we have a complete Universe inside us. In Shamanism we resonate with the basic elementals that gives life to everything and everyone. Fire, water, air, earth and ether; the same is applied to Tantra and Taoistic arts.
In Tantra, we understand that life force energy moves in a Subtle System which is connected to our Psyche, behavior , biology and most of it to the development of us as human beings and our spiritual journey. Chakras, nadis, talas, marmas and grantis are the structure with in our body.
Both, Shamanism & Tantra, recognize that our body has an intrinsic manifestation of our own existence in different layers that are called the bodies. Physical; energetical; emotional (mind) ; causal (Spirit & Soul) ; and Esoterical (Psychic).
Tantra and shamanism, are connected to these structures with the target to alleviate, unblock, restore, transmute different aspect of our existence: from physical issues, to emotional or spiritual.
So what is alchemy? The very simplest answer is: alchemy is the art of transformation. Paracelsus, probably the most important and consistent philosopher in the history of the alchemic tradition put it this way: “Alchemy is the art that separates what is useful from what is not by transforming it into its ultimate matter and essence.”
When we change the vibrational frequency within the structure of a substance or system via shamanic alchemy, it changes into a new form. For our purposes, we could say that we are here engaged in the art of transformation through the discipline of mind, matter, behaviour and spirit.
7 STAGES OF SPIRITUAL ALCHEMY
Spiritual alchemy is an ancient occult practice that seeks to liberate the soul from its attachment to matter. Spiritual alchemy, then, is an ancient philosophy that uses the metaphor of transforming metals into gold for attaining spiritual enlightenment.
The personality contains the inauthentic part of the self, including one’s beliefs, concepts, opinions, wounds, fears, and phobias. In this way, the transmutation of lead into gold functions as a metaphor for the process of self-actualization and spiritual rebirth.
SPIRITUAL ALCHEMY, STAGE 1: CALCINATION
Calcination, the first stage of spiritual alchemy, is also known as the black stage. The colour black represents chaos, that which is hidden and buried, and the material of the unconscious. It also refers to the Materia Prima, which is the idea in occult sciences that all matter in the universe emerged from an original, primitive base.
Calcination refers to the burning of the Materia Prima until it is transformed into ash. In a spiritual sense, it refers to breaking with our worldly attachments, the desire for status, wealth, and the need to solidify our identity. It’s not to say these things are wrong, but according to the process, the development of a higher level of consciousness and the refinement of the spirit is hindered by these attachments.
Calcination also refers to the burning off of all of the superfluous elements of ourselves that no longer serve us. We are purified by fire, and the hardened and dead parts of ourselves have burned away. All that has calcified in ourselves is removed in a similar way to how hardened plaque build-up on teeth can be removed. Our preconceived notions about our identity and our beliefs are put to the test in the calcination stage. Our ideologies and neuroses begin to lessen their grip on the persona, enabling one’s true spirit to awaken.
