Excerpt from the new book A Course in Mastering Alchemy: In an early conversation with Archangel Metatron, he described alchemy as “changing the frequency of thought, altering the harmonics of matter and applying the element of Love to create a desired result.” It’s a way of living your life with awareness and intention, returning to a conscious relationship with Creator. Alchemy is transforming the density of your physicality into the Living Light body.
Changing the frequency of thought
Thoughts are electrical and emotions are magnetic. This is a very important concept. When a thought is coupled with an emotion, the combined energies become electromagnetically charged, amplified and set in motion.
Let me explain this in a simple way. You may have seen those big junkyard cranes that lift up buses, trucks and cars and move them around. Effectively this type of crane is composed of a block of steel, which has magnetic properties, hanging on the end of a chain. When you take a length of conductive wire, wrap it once around the block of steel and then plug it into an electrical outlet the steel becomes electromagnetic to the power of one. In other words, it becomes a magnet, albeit a weak one. But when you wrap that wire around the block of steel ten times, or a hundred times, or a thousand times, the force of the magnet increases exponentially. It becomes a very strong magnet that holds a tremendous amount of power.
Exactly the same thing happens within us with our thoughts and emotions. Many of us have been taught that we have four bodies, a spiritual body, a mental body, an emotional body and a physical body – known as the four-body system. When you are in a state of ease, feeling happy and unstressed, just enjoying the world around you, you are in your spiritual body.
Now let’s say that you are walking down the street, enjoying the spring flowers, and someone comes up to you and says, “You have a very funny nose.” The mechanics of what unfolds next could be something like this: you drop from your happy spiritual body into your mental body, relinquishing your seniority and self-ownership. You think to yourself: I don’t like this. That’s not a nice thing to say. What do I do with this? Why did they say that? What does it mean? Is this something I should worry about? You begin mentally to analyse why someone would say this to you, running it over and over again in your mind.
Instantaneously, without any conscious thought or awareness, you then drop into your emotional body. These thoughts generate an emotion that doesn’t feel very good – I don’t like this. It doesn’t feel good. I feel hurt. Maybe I’m not going to be liked. I’m not good enough. I’m not appreciated. I’m never going to succeed. Oh my, this is a big problem. And right there the emotion of “off balance” now has an electrical thought wrapped around it: I am not okay. I’m ugly. What are they going to think of me? I’m never going to amount to anything. And the more you wrap the thought around the emotion, the more powerful your emotional response becomes, just like that electromagnet. The more you ponder, the more you give up your seniority, and the more uncomfortable you get. You become embarrassed. You don’t know what to do with this feeling. You can’t talk about it to your friends. Out of desperation, to get this feeling and the thoughts that accompany it out of your field, you put it in a place of unconsciousness by burying it in a box called denial.
But thoughts don’t just go poof! and disappear. They all get stored somewhere. Those unacknowledged thoughts and feelings (I have a funny nose. I don’t like myself. I’m not accepted. I’m not attractive. I feel so ugly. I’m never going to succeed.) are still alive and vibrating in your unconscious. It is as though you are carrying a huge billboard on your back that reads, “Kick me”. The Law of Attraction responds by giving you more of the same.
