Title: The Alchemy Thread
Post by: azozeo on May 10, 2019, 03:36:26 PM

The Secret Book of Artephius

This has been transcribed from 'In Pursuit of Gold' by 'Lapidus'. This treatise describes the entire process of preparing the philosopher's stone. There are three separate operations described here: the preparation of the 'secret fire' (the catalyst or solvent which is used throughout the whole work, without which nothing can be achieved, but which is seldom if ever mentioned in any alchemical treatise), the preparation of 'mercury' (a metallic vapor made from antimony and iron, said to resemble vulgar mercury (Hg) in appearance, necessary in the preparation of the stone) and the preparation of the stone itself.
These operations are not presented in sequence. The reader will note that the language is allusive and recondite, that several names are used to refer to the same thing and that one name is used to refer to several things. This is, however, an exceptionally clear alchemical text.
Artephius is said to have written this in the 12th century. Lapidus doesn't say who translated it (presumably from the Latin).
Comments in [square brackets] are by the transcriber. (

Once upon a time, every religion was Janus-faced. It had its exoteric or outward side, serving or exploiting the majority of believers, and its esoteric or inward side, reserved for a few. Christianity had its esoteric side in theosophy, the science of the knowledge of God; Judaism in Kabbalah; Islam in Sufism; Hinduism in the various yogas; Paganism in its Mysteries. These esoterisms were for those with sufficient interest, motivation, and capacity to benefit from them. Entry was through initiation, whereupon, under expert guidance, the elect might embark on the lifelong and demanding quest for reality. That, at least, was the principle, however imperfect it may have been in practice.

It is different today. There is a widespread thirst for a deeper dimension to life than the consumer society can provide, and for a better explanation of its enigmas than exoteric religion or materialistic science has to offer. This thirst accounts for the popular success of books and films that feature Gnostic and occult themes, and of conspiracy theories that claim that things are ordered quite differently – for good or ill – than the public is led to believe. If anyone wants to learn more, the secrets once imparted only to initiates are there on the bookshelves, or the Internet. The doors of the sanctuary are agape, but where are the hierophants, adepts, and sages whom one hoped to find there? Most of us seem to be thrown back on our own resources, lonely travellers among the ruined monuments of ancient mysteries.

The Golden Thread is one such traveller’s offering, and this article is a sampling of it. The book stems from a series of fourteen articles in the New York-based magazine, Lapis: The Inner Meaning of Contemporary Life. Its editor, Ralph White, suggested treating the Western mystery traditions in such a way as to make them not merely historical curiosities, but relevant to his readers. These were typically people with a secure footing in contemporary life, but feeling the call of that “inner meaning” that money and status cannot buy. So I had a dual task: to give them a quick and easy course in the main episodes of Western esoterism, and to show what these have to teach us today. (

By Luke Miller / Truth Theory

The 7 Hermetic Principles are a group of simple condensed natural laws that work as a road map for self-liberation. Written by Hermes Trismegistus, a character whose existence blurs the lines between real and mythical.

“Master of all arts and sciences, perfect in all crafts, Ruler of the Three Worlds, Scribe of the Gods, and Keeper of the Books of Life, Thoth Hermes Trismegistus — the Three Times Greatest, the “First Intelligencer” — was regarded by the ancient Egyptians as the embodiment of the Universal Mind. While in all probability there actually existed a great sage and educator by the name of Hermes, it is impossible to extricate the historical man from the mass of legendary accounts which attempt to identify him with the Cosmic Principle of Thought.” Manly P. Hall — The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Hermes is revered as the reincarnation of Tehuti (more commonly known as Thoth), the Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) God of Writing.

The laws were originally thought to have been passed down by oral tradition. This is when a master teacher verbally shares selected parables and axioms with disciples to preserve the teachings. This was done so only selected people would learn the information, but also for the protection of the teachers and disciples. Up until recent times, people found to be sharing this occult information could end up being burned at the stake for heresy and blasphemy. An example of this is the 16th-century Hermetic Occultist Bruno Giordano, who was burned at the stake for teaching about Hermeticism.

Written copies were made of the teachings in later centuries, with the surviving writings being named the Corpus Hermetica. This is a series of letters from Hermes, which included the 7 Hermetic Principles which are outlined below with short videos that delve deeper into the teachings.

Alchemy – Not Just for the Middle Ages Anymore

Mention alchemy to someone and what do they usually think of? The Middle Ages with old men in some forgotten attic, laboring over bubbling flasks filled with some unknown fluid; or in front of an oven, trying to turn molten lead into gold. These are the images of the alchemist that time, mythology, and prejudicial history have handed down to us.

It is true, that many of the early alchemists were the forerunners of the modern sciences. Physics and chemistry are indebted to these early ‘puffers’ as they are despairingly called, for from their hours of sweat and travail, a host of modern advances came: porcelain, alcohol distillation, acids, salts, and a variety of metallic compounds, are the results of early alchemical experiments.

But if alchemy wasn’t just a foolish waste of time in the search for a means to turn base metals into gold, what was it? (

There has been an increase in people searching for answers and questioning their belief systems and authenticity.
The Alchemy of Being Authentic

By Maryne Hachey

Times are sure changing for anyone spiritually aware or otherwise, and there is a collective awareness that humanity is tuning into. What I have noticed is how many of us are struggling with the influx of heavy energy that has moved across the planet, and if you feel cloudy or heavy, you are not alone.

For some time now my Guides have been pressing me to get writing and sharing my perspective and wisdom with others as there has been an increase of people searching for answers and questioning their belief systems and authenticity.

For the last few years, people we have grown to love and look to in the spiritual community have either passed on or completely changed their practices and have fallen off the axes causing many to really question their own path and direction, so I want to address this and encourage you if I may.

It is amazing when someone called to service is inspired to change and share those changes, but what if their changes negate the very foundations of your own spiritual practices?

Authenticity as a Spiritual Practice

This is simple: Don’t follow people if you are truly following your own Path.

Listen to your guides and intuition then there is no cause for panic or worry because you are always staying true to you, and your path as your journey on this earth plane is a unique one of a kind, so don’t let another’s a change of heart take away from who you are.

You are still YOU!, divinely created and have a place on this earth, so keep shining, your gifts and talents are needed and as you watch others change, and use their platforms to spread their messages be very mindful not to cast judgments or fear-based energy onto one another. You and only you can decide if their truth is also your truth.

For there is a collective group, I will call the watchers that have been changing the frequencies and remotely impacting anyone who is called to be of service. Now I know it sounds scary or way out there to some people, here is how you can tell if you are experiencing this for yourself

The following list is given to you outside of any medical conditions, and should you suffer suicidal thoughts or think you have depression seek medical attention, never discontinue prescribed medication without consulting a medical professional.

* extreme fatigue


* headaches

*heaviness around your head & clouded third eye

*difficulty meditating or holding on to positive thoughts or motivation

*changes in weight & appetite

*lack of motivation

*extreme anxiety

*feeling lost, withdrawn


*unexplained pain

Alchemizing Your Own Self

As energy beings, we know when something is off, and if these appear out of the blue, and you’ve consulted a medical professional, and they can’t find anything wrong with you, you can rest assured that this is Energy. So now what? How do you stay balanced with all this crazy energy happening around you?

Meditate, if you don’t already you can find many books on meditation, there’s also guided meditations, I personally use Kelly Howell, brain sync, Jonathan Goldman, and Thaddeus from the Light body consciousness, just to name a few. There is a wealth of information on social media, just stick to the rules of if you get resistance, trust it, and if it flows it goes! Just remember, that not everything everyone states is indeed your truth, take what fits and incorporate your own wisdom and knowledge. Be kind and gentle with the process, it is something you have to do every day to see the benefits and changes that will occur. Keep with it, and if you skip a day, no sweat, just get right back at it and keep going, because you don’t have to be perfect, just consistently moving forward, just take the next step.
Authenticity and Healthy Living

The benefits of meditation are scientifically proven to improve your sense of wellbeing, reducing stress and anxiety and deepen your connection to Spirit

Next, take action towards healthy living, force yourself to go for a walk, any form of exercise and follow those intuitive nudges, like if you feel compelled to write, sit down and write, don’t worry about what it is your supposed to write about, it will come.

Stop trying to fix others, especially if itis draining you. Listen, as a healer I get this you want to help, but everything in their life has to line up, there are things people have to go through. It is a process of reckoning and being ready for the next step. If you are truly called to be of service for another, let Spirit guide you, and not your will be done but their higher power, whether its God, Spirit or an Angel.

If you Pray, pray simple, allow your Will to be done, because the truth is, the Divine Creator already knows what that person needs, as well as where your heart is and simply put they may not be ready for the changes you desire for their life, so let go and let God.

Eat foods that bring you joy, that makes you feel light, drinks plenty of water and avoids anything that can cause you to lose control while you are feeling vulnerable ( drugs or alcohol).?Say NO guilt-free of demands of your time, & remember if it flows it goes, and don’t do for others if it causes resentments or harsh energy. There are plenty of resources to assist you when caring for the needs of other humans without becoming codependent or drained.

Spend your time doing things that would bring you joy or are gentle for you while you regain momentum and strength, seek out help from others if that’s something that works for you.

Don’t focus so much on being “Grounded” as you do on finding the Balance within all things.

Here’s a Mantra I give to all my clients, and often use with things seem too big, because even I have a human experience and these are some of the lessons I have learned myself as someone who has been of service for over 20 yrs., you keep learning and growing it really never stop.

Royal Parasites & Black Magicians

We live in a world where reality has been subjugated and inverted. The laws of nature have been trampled upon by a clique of parasitic hoarders who have hoodwinked the vast majority of people into accepting a life of hardship and bondage as a result on an inter-generational reign of terror meted out by these well-dressed entitlement-demanding bloodsuckers.

Surrounded by a cast of uniformed magicians in fuzzy hats who march around reinforcing the terror trance, these “royal” family welfare cases depend on humanity remaining under the illusion that people who live in castles should be respected rather than reviled. This illusion is etched ever deeper into the human psyche via assassinations, terror attacks, coups and the occasional world war.

The court magician Freemasons are instructed by the Privy Council to obfuscate, confuse, divide and indoctrinate society. (

Introduction to Meaning and Uses of Moldavite

One look at Moldavite and there’s no question it is a stone of greatness, etherically carved of spiritual fire and destined for purpose. This mysterious green talisman is star-born, formed from nature’s violent meteoric impact with Mother Earth. Etched by force and flame as it fell from the heavens Moldavite returned to the earth’s surface transformed, a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind.

As a Stone of Connectivity, Moldavite carries an intense frequency, a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies that are quickly felt, often dramatically in those who resonate with its power. Holding Moldavite for the first time often produces a sensation of heat, felt first in the hand, then progressively throughout the body. In some cases the heart chakra is activated, experienced as a pounding pulse, followed by sweating or flushing of the face, and an emotional release that may range from laughter to tears. Moldavite’s frequency may take some getting used to, but its profound ability to accelerate one’s personal and spiritual evolution makes it highly sought after in the metaphysical world, both for its life-altering capabilities and as a catalyst for drawing in Light to aid in Earth’s healing. [Simmons, 262][Simmons/Warner, 30-32][Hall, 187]

Moldavite is a member of the Tektite group of natural glasses formed from interplanetary collisions. From the Greek word tektos, meaning “molten,” Tektites are glassy mixtures of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide and other metal oxides with an amorphous crystal structure. Unlike other Tektites from around the world which are tar black or brownish-black, translucent Moldavite is a deep forest green and is the only variety suitable for cutting and faceting as a gem. [Simmons, 261][Simmons/Warner, 21]

This beautiful stone is rare, found only in Czechoslovakia, and is named for the area in which it is found, near the Moldau River (called the Vltava in Czech). While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite’s origin, nearly all agree its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau. The rock metamorphosed by the heat of impact created a strew field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia. Farmers often turned up the stones when plowing their fields, while other specimens worked their way to the surface after spring thaw or heavy rains in the fall. More recently collectors have “mined” for gem grade and museum quality specimens by sifting and digging through loose sands and gravels. [Simmons, 261][Simmons/Warner, 21-23]

The shapes of Moldavite give witness to its molten origins, most commonly drop-like (round to very flattened), plate or disc shaped, oval, spheroid, dumbbell shaped, elliptical, rod-like or spiral, all common in splash patterns of liquids. Moldavites from Bohemian localities are more drop-like, elongated or rod-like, while Moravian stones are more spherical. Moldavite occurs most often in shades of deep forest green, though some are pale green or olive, and others, especially from Moravia, are greenish-brown. [Simmons, 261][Simmons/Warner, 25]

The most magnificent of Moldavite’s features is the beautifully etched, carved, wrinkled or sculpted patterns inherent in raw and unpolished stones. Pieces found at or near the surface have been subjected to erosion in streams and rivers over the millennia and resemble the rough exterior common to river stones. More finely textured and sculpted specimens are found in sand or gravel pits, and ones found intact and unmarred are considered “museum grade” and are rare and valuable. The rarest of all (less than one percent) are the “sonorous” Moldavites, called Angel Chimes, which are tempered naturally and if dropped on a glass or metal surface “rings” like a coin. [Simmons/Warner, 38]

Moldavite has a rich history, prized since the Stone Age and used not only for arrowheads and cutting tools, but as a spiritual talisman and amulet of good fortune, fertility and protection. It was found in the archeological site of the Venus of Willendorf, the oldest known Goddess statue, and has been linked to legends of the Holy Grail, thought to be an emerald that fell from the sky out of Lucifer’s crown before he was cast from Heaven. In Czech lore, it was given as a betrothal gift to bring harmony to marital relations, and for centuries has been used in jewelry, religious items and for spiritual transformation. (See the Powers, Lore and Legends section.) [Hall, 187][Simmons, 261-264]

Moldavite is relatively fragile and should never be cleansed with salt to avoid scratching its surface. [Hall, 189][Melody, 413] (

The world’s largest occult library has a public online archive

Amsterdam’s Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica (AKA “The Ritman Library) houses more ths 25,000 occult texts, covering “Hermetics, Rosicrucians, Theosophy, alchemy, mysticism, Gnosis and Western Esotericism, Sufism, Kabbalah, Anthroposophy, Catharism, Freemasonry, Manichaeism, Judaica, the Grail, Esotericism, and comparative religion.”

The library has begun to scan and post its core collection to an online archive called The Hermetically Open Archive. The project was underwritten by Dan Brown in thanks for the library’s contributions to his books “The Lost Symbol” and “Inferno” (the library houses the first illustrated edition of Dante’s “Divine Comedy,” from 1472).

Though the scans are all in the public domain, the library uses Javascript tricks to try to block scraping, though, according to Maika at Haute Macabre, there are plans to enable downloading in the future.

Haute Macabre has assembled a kind of highlight reel of the collection, which has some gorgeous illustrated texts in it.

Everything You Need to Know About Manifesting on Command

September 26th, 2019

By Juliet Tang

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

As a feminine business, wealth and empowerment mentor, one of the key elements in my coaching is helping women entrepreneurs co-create success and abundance in their businesses that are aligned with their highest visions and growth.

Over the years, I’ve seen many having misconception around the term “manifesting,” and what it really takes to magnetize results we desire in our personal, professional, and spiritual lives.

I’m sharing three manifesting myths, as well as 3 secrets for you to manifest on command.
Manifesting Myth # 1: Believing manifesting is about tactics and practices

The truth is, you are manifesting every moment of everyday, even in your sleep. You are doing it right now by sending out a certain frequency that will magnetize people and circumstances that resonate on a similar frequency back to you in the near future, and it is a never-ending loop.

So you are not just creating results when you’re doing a visualization, or focusing hard on a positive outcome during those ten minutes you are writing affirmations.

Manifesting is not something you do, and it certainly is not a practice or tactic.

Manifesting is who you are. Every moment, you are magnetizing certain people and events back to you based on what you are Being and what you have embodied as the truth on a deep cellular level. Some of it is conscious, and some highly unconscious.

For example, if money in your business is something you’re wanting to manifest, and it hasn’t shown up, it means, somewhere deep in your being, there are parts of you that are resisting receiving the opportunities that will allow money to flow to you. This can simply be taking those aligned actions to call in the money.
Myth # 2. Manifesting is about getting things and results

People pretty much use the word “manifest” when they are describing the preferred outcome of a desire,

“I want to manifest a new house/a loving soulmate/a million dollar listing.”

There is absolutely nothing wrong with desires as I am all for desires and expansion.

But, I want you to get very clear on what manifesting actually is. It is NOT about getting or having something which is actually a byproduct. Getting the cash, getting that book deal, or getting that dream date is a happy byproduct. It’s icing on the cake.

Manifesting is a process of self-expression and expansion.

Within this process, you must choose to upgrade your sense of identity, as well as the relationship you have with that desire. Feel free to access my free 4-day Creatrix Activation Kit here if you are a woman who wants to upgrade her sense of identity into her highest creatrix self.

I’ll use money as an example because sacred wealth creation is one of the three pillars of my feminine business mentorship.

When you have a desire…let’s call it, consistent 10k months in your business, that desire automatically implies what you want isn’t here yet.

So in order to fulfill that desire, you must then do the internal and external work to first become that person who can hold the frequency of consistent 10 thousand dollars in your consciousness on a monthly basis.

In other words, you must embody the 10k frequency emotionally, mentally, spiritually, somatically, and vibrationally without rejecting or resisting it unconsciously in the form of sabotaging money stories, love/hate relationship with money, fear around receiving, etc.

The same goes for everything else whether it’s love or weight loss. To bring a desire into physical form, you must commit to the process of being able to not only hold it in your mind, but also in your body.

This is the definition of embodiment which is the essence of my mentorship – embodiment is a key element in unlocking our highest potential.

Getting stuck in an ego mode called “I am trying to get something” is actually rooted in scarcity and lack, and the results will be more scarcity and lack.
Myth # 3. Manifesting is about always feeling good and positive

I see people making the following mistakes:

    Focusing only on mindset – thinking and reinforcing positive beliefs, which constitutes about 2% of your manifestations.
    Forcing themselves to feel positive while dismissing challenging emotions and burying them under the rug.
    Becoming obsessed with raising their vibration.
    Being fixated on watching one more law of attraction video, buying course, new technique, etc. believing the magic formula is just around the corner.

The truth bomb here is, manifesting (which is a process of self-expression and expansion) doesn’t always feel good in the beginning. The process of upgrading to a higher identity and expansion pretty much guarantees you’ll come up against your own stuff.

Going back to the 10k/month business goal, the process of stretching ourselves into bigger containers to hold that frequency can certainly cause discomfort in the beginning. Suddenly, we are facing our limiting money stories, our low self-worth, our discomfort with asking and receiving, our fear of being judged or rejected, etc.

All and all, manifesting is about stepping outside of your comfort zone consistently.

I’d love to move onto the 3 secrets for you to master manifesting on command.
Secret # 1: Take 100% responsibility over every experience in your life

This is something I am big on with the women entrepreneurs I mentor.

It boils down to choosing to operate from one of the two identities: your human self, or your Divine Self.

Perhaps your human self has been conditioned with beliefs that are not conducive to you creating the success you desire (and success does not need to be building a million dollar empire. It can be as simple as – waking up feeling healthy and energized).

But your Divine Self – she has the power to evoke any possibility in the field of infinite possibilities because she IS, and is an extension of Source Energy that is unfailing, unstoppable, forever-expanding and evolving, and infinite.

You are born with these very mechanisms to call forth any reality, for as long as you are willing to accept this tremendous power and responsibility called “I Am That.”

When you operate from the human self, it’s easy to claim responsibility for the results you like, and shift responsibility on the experiences you don’t like by blaming them on circumstances, excuses, other people, etc.

The Divine Self sees no other but herself as the sole creatrix in this universe (feel free to substitute it with “he” and “creator). She knows regardless of whether she intended to create it or not, life happens through her and for her, rather than to her.

When we operate from the Divine Self and take full responsibility of our creative power which is our Divine Potential, no expansion is too big and no joy is too impossible. My free Creatrix Activation Kit teaches you how to embody your Divine Self which you access here.
Secret # 2: Master the energy of a command

It’s very easy to get wishy washy with our desires,

    Oh, it’ll be so nice for me to have…
    I’m throwing the intention out there, and this is about “let go and let god.”
    I’ll try couple of things, and if it doesn’t work out, it’s not meant to be.

This is actually the energy of “I am not fully owning the power of my Divine Self.”

In order for you to co-create success, in addition to deciding this is what you truly want, you’ve also got to command it and see it through – in your energy, choices, and actions.

This looks like quick and powerful decision making, and it’s a muscle that you need to develop. This is especially true if you want to manifest money but it works for all other desires. Money is a Divine Masculine energy that values confidence, action, respect, boundaries, attention, quick and bold decision making, faith, etc.

You have to master the art of being willing to decide, and act on your decision with swiftness. The decisions and actions vary, but needless to say, sitting on your couch visualizing and thinking positive isn’t cutting it.

It is also about not over-thinking because when you attempt to use logic to override intuition, you’re now engaging parts of the brain that are stuck in old conditioning. This causes analysis paralysis, and co-creation doesn’t happen when there is no room for spontaneity, iinspiration, and flow.
Secret # 3: Quickly take an aligned action that overrides your resistance

When you have a desire, and you jump on it by taking an aligned action which leads to the next aligned action which leads to an upgraded reality, it very quickly takes you out of the doubt, aka. resistance, and resistance is the only thing that stops you from getting results.

The actions that will lead to an upgraded reality are most likely the actions that can feel triggering or scary to you, with excitement mixed in.

Those actions will also most likely:

    Take you outside of your comfort zone.
    Feel like a stretch – emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and/or financially.
    Make you feel uncertain, like you are diving into the unknown (which is precisely how an upgraded reality manifests because if you know it, you would have done it already).

This also goes back to the myth that manifesting is all about feeling good. A lot of times, it is about feeling the initially discomfort, but CHOOSING to do it anyway.

None of this has to be hard with the right system and support.

In fact, the process of self-expression and expanding can be incredibly fun and exciting, while you are co-creating the lifestyle, the connections, the joy, and the abundance you desire with others and the universe. It’s the human mind and conditioning that wants to make all of it complicated.

Happy manifesting!

was known as one of the most influential teachers in
the New Thought movement for many years.
He gave hundreds of lectures all over the United States
and even had his own TV show in Los Angeles in the 50's! His philosophy states that we create our reality by our thoughts or by the human imagination.

“Stop trying to change the world since it is only the mirror. Man’s attempt to change the world by force is as fruitless as breaking a mirror in the hope of changing his face. Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself.”

Title: The Alchemy Thread - THE BOOK OF THE DEAD
Post by: azozeo on December 06, 2019, 09:44:40 AM

The Book of the Dead is the common name for the ancient Egyptian funerary texts more correctly known as “The Spells of Coming Forth by Day”. The Book of the Dead was not a single document. It was a compilation of spells, hymns and illustrations. By teaching passwords, giving clues, and revealing routes, the Book of the Dead enabled the deceased’s spirit to overcome obstacles in the underworld. The Pyramid texts of the Old Kingdom (2,600BC) were the earliest recorded way of providing this instruction to the dead. The “hymns” or “utterances” were carved into the walls of pyramid chambers. (
