The Alchemy of Shadow & Light

Archetypal Alchemy is about “Polishing the Philosopher’s Stone”… We are both the Philosopher and the Stone… The more we allow the ‘polishing’ the more we are able to shine… In the alchemical process the archetypes are recognized and understood to be energetic complexes, matrices and are alive. To some degree they are energetic formations, catalysts and focusing apparatus’ that we live through and relate from..

Alchemy is about transmuting energetically and the transformation that takes place. More than ‘getting rid of’ it is about shifting, altering, re-arranging, rebounding, integrating and assimilating…
There are chemical and bio-chemical components to the process. What is gotten rid of is actually distilled; or altered in form. However the form is changed by the process and the processor.

To be polished is to dive deep into the coal of our being and give ourselves up to the process of wiping out what is impure… The impurities are simply what is “not us”…What is not authentically us; or from our Soul is being rooted out, adjusted, unleveled and updated.
We are in a very powerful and potentially transformational time. A lot is coming up from the depths of our being and from the depths of Mother Earth…
It is a time of conversing with the Chthonic – the archetypal realm of spirits, the spiritual and the underworld… It is the space of the subconscious, the collective unconscious and where this intersects with our mundane world…

It is a time of honoring and understanding the ‘Shadow and Light’… There is no shadow without the light… The dark spaces or shadow create the highlight. Think in terms of contrast and complements instead of opposites and conflicts… Energy is shifting, beliefs are updating and language is changing… We are in the flux of the flow; and all seems to be hanging in the wind…

It is possible to go deep and be light about it… It is possible to let go of mundane wounding drama and rise above… This is not a time to be “Polly Anna”; however it is a time to understand how people hurt us, how we hurt others and how we have hurt ourselves…It’s all about the wounding… The next level of healing, transformation and empowerment is to honor the wounding, but not to live out of the wounding…

What is being highlighted is to honor where we have all come from and to acknowledge our wounding and use this to access our gifts… There is both an energy and focus for going deep within and extending outward…

So, what does this mean for you? Well, preparation is key in any cycle; whether a climate or seasonal cycle. This is an energetic cycle which affects everything… The pull is into the void..into more of the depth of your being…
It’s not about getting lost in the ‘Rabbit Hole’. It’s about knowing how to journey there and when is the best time…

Don’t get lost in the ‘Rabbit Hole’… Use your ‘Inner GPS’ and follow your ‘Inner Map’…

Take notes and bring what you learn back to your “everyday living” …
