Three Simple Secrets from Alchemy to Transform You

Although I’d been classified as shy, quiet and an introvert, I guess I’ve taken enough drama and public speaking classes to know how to generally look “on” when needed. Not too long ago I realized that “turning it on” and living from a space of “on” were two completely different places of Being. This discovery was the catalyst for this article as well as a lot of new energy work! Recently I practiced this state of Being On when I went to a 3 day conference for speakers, coaches, healers on Ecstatic Wealth. Sounds like fun, huh! I’ll tell you more about how it played out in a minute.

Anyone who knows about the Law of Attraction gets that you create what you think. We try to think positive thoughts, say our affirmations and generally BE what we want to become. Truth be told: sometimes it works like a dream…sometimes we see the opposite results.  Why?? While I’ can’t answer that for every person or situation, I can say that it ALWAYS has a lot to do with how I’m relating to my Self in this world.  If I want to transform myself into an ecstatically wealthy, radiant, extrovert (or whatever floats my boat), it takes more than being the Little Engine that Could…”I think I can, I think I can…” While I love that story and it’s a start to the process…deep, internal transformation takes a bit (or a lot) of alchemy. A definition of alchemy is taking something ordinary and turning it into extraordinary. The art of transmutation. Turning lead into gold.

In simplistic terms, for alchemy to occur you need 3 things; the vessel to hold the materials, the base material you want changed and the material that transforms. Using this analogy; if you want personal transformation, you may simply center on your body (the vessel of transformation), your mind (the substance to be transformed) and Spirit or God (the source energy that transforms).

Our body is the beautiful home for our spirit or soul.  Body and Spirit are separate yet intertwined.  When we neglect our body we are neglecting the whole being.  Even further, when we make our body the slave to our mind (you must eat this and exercise like that…or you will get sick and unhealthy…) we are STILL neglecting the Whole. Take a moment and imagine what it’s like for your body to be the vessel for the limitless energy that is You. Close your eyes if you like and really feel into this.  You, your Highest Self, the being that is connected to God, Spirit, Source is in fact infinite.  You agreed to come into this tiny body to experience the material world. What’s it like to know deep down the truth of this? Now ask your body what it really wants. Many of you may say love, acceptance, kindness, gentleness. Think of your body as a little animal.  Care for it in the same way you’d care for your dog or cat. Shower it with love, forgive it’s mistakes, keep it safe, indulge it, tickle it’s tummy! As you retrain your body to know it’s safe and loved here on earth, you will manifest a happier, healthier, juicier body and you will walk in the world with a deep sense of confidence, belonging and safety. Do you see the connection? Our bodies are the material representation for our spiritual being. Let’s let go of making it the slave or neglecting it completely. Trusting that we’ve evolved beyond kicking the dog when we had a bad day; let’s treat our body like our beloved pet and we will manifest this love, loyalty and confidence in our daily life.

The next step in the alchemical process is the mind. I see it as the lead that’s being transformed into gold.  Now, there is nothing inherently evil about lead.  It’s a natural substance, found in the earth and has many uses. We also know that lead is toxic. Do you know why?  Chemists state, it’s toxic because it preferentially replaces other metals in biochemical reactions.  That kind of sounds like what our minds do!  The mind (otherwise known as our ego) preferentially likes to replace other forms of Knowing and spiritual guidance.  In order to create the alchemical process in our lives we don’t need to hate, judge or eliminate our mind/ego. Simply infuse it with the proper transformational substance and we turn lead into gold!  In my work as an energy healer and coach I’ve noticed many people want to rid themselves of their ego as has been the spiritual trend for millennia.  Law of Attraction fans have a constant fight with the mind to “keep vibrations up.”  In my experience, both ways of functioning tend to backfire and continue the same experiences that we are trying to rid from ourselves.  My mind/ego is my partner!  It continually tells me areas that need healing.  Thank you! It runs my bodily functions and my subconscious work (like driving to pick up my daughter from school).  I’m grateful for this partnership. And, I continually use transforming spirit to keep my mind/ego from taking over my choices, my purpose, my life’s work.  The less I think about things and the more I ‘do a gut check’ or ‘follow my heart’ the better my life turns out. It’s sometimes scary to teach a class without notes or make choices without weighing all the options and writing out lists and seeking all kinds of advice.  I comfort my mind and tell her she can weigh in but she’s not the boss.  I ask my heart and gut and God and Spirit and then do what feels lightest. That may excite or terrify you (as it does me at different times) but it’s truly a way out of mind/ego and into Knowing.

The final aspect of our alchemical process is the agent of transformation!  God, Spirit, connection to Source, connection to Oneness.  This is where the fun begins!  As an energy worker, I love the energetic principles in my connection with God.  It takes away all the misinformation from childhood catechism and gives me a pure, unbiased relationship with Source.  There is no judgment or tit for tat involved in connecting with Spirit for guidance or manifesting my deepest desires.  Spirit is one with me and I with Spirit.  I bring down the energy of Source to clear away my stuck energy and I use my image making skills (imagination) to create the life I choose.  Source only wants me to connect with it’s beauty and perfection. It doesn’t even understanding our flawed ideology of: “If I’m good I’ll get my prayer answered.” Or the recent LOA configuration: “If I think the right thing I will get my thoughts answered.”  All Source does is match the energetic frequency I am at. Let’s play with Spirit and speak our deepest truths. Release “doing it right” and bring in the complete loving relationship that’s available to us. Many of us don’t want to show our darkest feelings for fear of manifesting them. Well, by not acknowledging them we actually keep them locked up under a pile of pretty affirmations.  When I say speak your truth, I call it the “Lieutenant Dan truth.”  Remember in Forest Gump when Lieutenant Dan was on the mast of his boat during the hurricane and he screamed at God? That’s the kind of truth I’m talking about. God can take it! Be willing to ask for what you want like a little child. A child doesn’t think about the right way, she just asks! Energetically, as you release your truth and ask for what you want, alchemy occurs! To sum up the three secrets of alchemy; treat your body as the sacred vessel of transformation.  Love your ego/mind for the gifts it brings and the work it does. And bring in the transforming Spirit to alchemize the lead in your life into gold!

As I stated earlier, I practiced these at the conference I attended recently. I wanted to embody myself fully, stand in my radiance from within and be my truth at the moment. The first step I took was to love my body as my beloved pet – flaws and all.  As I released self-judgment and comparing myself to others, I just looked inward and asked my Self what I wanted in the moment.  It allowed me to play and dance with abandon as if it was just me in the room with some good music!  I had people take pictures of me as I practiced shining like a star! I even jumped fully into the evening of burlesque dance lessons!  I’ve never told anyone this before, but the “Lead” in my mind has a running tape (or I guess Mp3) of “You look like Pippy Longstocking…not Bridget Bardot. Quit it with the starlet act.”  I’m a redhead from the era of redheads being the oddest thing not the hottest thing.  I truly spent some time, loving my mind/ego, giving it space to be…and then turning my attention to the infinite Spirit running through me, which is the Truth of who I AM.  The alchemical transformation was that I didn’t need to be The Star, or strive to be seen at the event, I just was me with beauty and quietness, a bit of whimsy and the desire to shine my light on this earth and be ALL that I came here to be! That feels like alchemy!

How to Increase Your Bandwidth to Divine Intelligence! (Part 2: “I Am Statements)


Divine intelligence 2

“If God be God and man a creature made in image of the divine intelligence, his noblest function is the search for truth.” – Morris West

I am statements

I found this post on Facebook. The source of the statistics is unknown. However, I think it gives a fairly accurate depiction of what our chances for success will be based on the words we use. Our words are an indication of our mental focus. The words we use in our self-talk and to others are very important. Because words are energy, they can either enhance or hinder our capacity to succeed. Here is a list of commonly used phrases and the probability of success that comes by using them.

  • I won’t = 0%
  • I can’t = 10%
  • I don’t know how = 20%
  • I wish I could = 30%
  • I want to = 40%
  • I think I might = 50%
  • I might = 60%
  • I think I can -70%
  • I can = 80%
  • I am = over 90%

Whether these statistics are perfectly accurate or not, it is demonstrates a Universal truth, that our beliefs, thoughts and emotions are energy and there is great power in using statements beginning with the words “I Am.”

Here are some examples of how you can use “I Am” statements:

“I am aligned with my Divine Purpose!”

“I am worthy.”

“I am abundant.”

“I am blessed.”

“I am inspired.”

“I am living my dreams.”

Ask “Why?”

Because the Reticular Activating System in our brain has the power to filter through billions of bits of information in order to find what is most relevant to you, a great next step is to ask yourself “Why” in relation to each of your “I am” Statements. For instance, ask yourself, “Why am I aligned with my Divine Purpose?” “Why am I worthy?” “Why am I living my dreams?” This allows the Reticular Activating System to go to work in your behalf, searching for even deeper evidence that each of your “I am” statements is true.

I recommend writing down each of your “I am statements” and then re-phrasing them as “why” questions. Then write down each of the reasons or proofs as your RAS reveals them to you. These evidences or proofs will strengthen your belief system, thus affecting the frequency of your thoughts and emotions.

How to Increase Your Bandwidth to Divine Intelligence (Part One: Re-framing)


mental bandwidth

We increase our mental bandwidth as we get our subconscious beliefs on board with our conscious desires and goals.

When we have both parts of our mind working together it becomes our pipeline to the flow of True Success. When or subconscious beliefs are on-board with our conscious goals there is no resistance and the bandwidth to source energy becomes enormous. The more we can expand our bandwidth the more “flow” we experience and the more we will experience an effortless flow of success. Increased flow comes through increased bandwidth.

Neural dissonance is a form of resistance that reduces our bandwidth. It occurs when there is not alignment between the conscious and subconscious mind. It stops us from “seeing” possibilities. It stops us from resonating with Divine Purpose.

When Napoleon Hill was finishing his book “Think and Grow Rich,” he had an experience that demonstrates the powerful bandwidth our subconscious minds possess. As he was struggling to come up with the right title for his book, his publisher finally gave him a one-day deadline in which to come up with a title or they would do it for him.

Before retiring that night, he actually sat in bed and began having a conversation with his subconscious mind. He asked his subconscious mind to reveal to him the title that was intended for the book.

He went to bed and quickly fell asleep, but in the early hours of the morning a flash of inspiration awakened him, and he knew at that moment that the title of his book was to be “Think and Grow Rich.”

The subconscious is where the brain and Divine Intelligence connect; kind of like a connection to some sort of spiritual internet. Spirit always operates by law and it always operates perfectly. If your subconscious is filled with limiting beliefs it will affect you spiritually, by making you dissonant to things of the spirit.

All of us would like to make changes in our lives, such as feeling happier, having more meaning and joy on a daily basis, having more financial abundance, losing weight, having better relationships, starting a new career, or taking up a new hobby. But actually making those changes can often be the hard part. Why is that?

The difficulty lies in the fact that our minds are made up of two parts. One part is responsible for rational, conscious thought and processes ideas sequentially, using language. The other part is emotional and processes ideas simultaneously, using pictures.

The emotional, subconscious mind is far more powerful than the rational, conscious mind. It is capable of processing more information, it controls approximately 95 percent of the thoughts you think and the actions you take each day, and is motivated by the pull of pleasurable rewards and the push of negative emotions.

Re-framing is a great tool for increasing your subconscious connection. Re-framing can be done by filling in the blanks in these statements below:

  • “Even though ___________, I am open to _________.
  • “Even though____________, I choose to __________.

Here are some examples:

If you are struggling with feelings of “unworthiness”, you would begin by saying:

Even though I am feeling unworthy, how can I see this differently?”

Even though I am feeling unworthy, what if I could feel completely different?”

Even though I feel unworthy, I am open to the complete opposite being true.”

Even though I feel unworthy, I choose to unconditionally love and accept myself.”

Re-framing is opening your subconscious to the complete opposite of whatever limiting belief you have accepted as truth. It is a very powerful tool, especially when combined with EFT or “tapping,” which we will go into shortly.

By accepting the belief that your worthiness is a prerequisite for connecting to God, then the belief itself becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, keeping you in a state of separation. Unless the belief is reframed, your emotions will remain dissonant from your source.

You can use the same process with the emotion of “fear.”

“Even though I am feeling fear, what if I could feel completely different?”

“Even though I am feeling fear, how can I see this differently?”

“Even though I feel fear, I am open to the complete opposite being true.”

“Even though I feel fear, I choose to unconditionally love and accept myself.”

Reframing is a great tool to help us change the power of our focus!
