The Alchemy of The Magician
Know Thyself. This is the very first requirement if you would like to become an alchemist. So then, is it dangerous to practice transmutation without knowing who you are? Well, that is a very interesting question. One can practice transmutation and not look inward at themselves (which is usually done through meditation) and certain results will occur. To transmute means to harness a force and change it. ‘Trans’- is the basic prefix of the word, which indicates ‘from one thing to another,’ and ‘mutate means ‘change into a different form’. To transmute is The Alchemy of The Magician.
When considering becoming an alchemist, firstly we have to comprehend who performs the transmutation. Who within us becomes the Magician who changes lead into gold? Who is that alchemist? Well really, it is our Vast Self who makes the decision to transmute ourselves from a carnal human into an angelic human. It is the Christic Being, the innermost.
The one who performs the magic of alchemy is the Vast or Higher Self, the Inner Being. The one who transmutes the energy is the Inner Christic Being. The one who performs the ritual, or empowers the mantra, is the Divine Self. We as a carnal/terrestrial human are just a vessel, a vehicle. We become merged with the Christic Being when we focus our efforts on doing the work needed to merge, but it is our Vast or Higher Self, our Inner Being, who drives us to persist long enough to get there.
We can perform the exercise of a magic ritual and it will have no effect if we have not honed the force of our will and if we do not have the esoteric wisdom needed to do the ritual the correct way and for the correct purpose. We can perform the exercise of transmutation and it will have no effect if the Being, the Vast or Higher Self or Divine Self is not there, or if the will of the Being, the Vast or Higher Self or Divine Self is not within it. A Black Magician uses his or her intellect to do magic, and it is always against the will of those that the magic is cast upon. A Christic Being uses their intuition and their heart to create magic and miracles.
To know the will of the Christic Being requires that you speak His language. The language of the Higher Self or Christic Being is symbolic, and it is very sophisticated. That language is the Kabbalah; that language is numbers; that language is in the images of the Tarot and many other symbolic forms that the Higher Self or Christic Being will speak through.
If an exercise of transmutation is performed, that is good, because this is what the Being needs. But the fruit of that exercise is given out by the Being himself. The Magician, who in this case is the Christic Being or Higher Self within you – the one who has that power – will not give the fruit of transmutation to someone who is not responsible enough to use it wisely.
That is why the Divine Mother never flows through someone who is still very unprocessed. For example, there is a story given of a man who was a famous Gnostic instructor who spoke beautifully about the teaching, who was practicing alchemy and transmuting his sexual forces but was not rewarded by his Divine Mother. Why? Because he did not meditate, he did not look inward, and so therefore he did not comprehend himself. The Divine Mother could not reward him the fruits of transmutation because he did not understand how to use them. He was still trapped in egotistical desires.
Said another way, Gnosis is not mechanical. Self-realisation is not mechanical. The process of awakening the Kundalini is not a simple theorem that says “If you take A and add it to B, you will get C.” It does not work that way.
Gnosis, or the realisation of the Self, is an act of will of the Innermost, of God. For us to receive illumination, power, transmutation, comprehension, any of the fruits of these practices, all of these things will be given by the Innermost. So yes, you can transmute, but if you do not meditate, if you do not comprehend yourself, if you do not turn inward and process your own darkness, your Christic Being or Higher Self will give you nothing, because your Christic Being needs you to become perfect, and perfection is achieved through comprehension of error, comprehension of oneself, comprehension of phenomenon.
If you do not comprehend why you have your anger, and how your anger makes you behave, then you will remain angry. If you do not comprehend why pride is a sin, you will remain in sin, and your Christic Being – God – will never give power to someone who is unprocessed. The Magician will not give power to a fornicator or an adulterer. The Christ cannot free someone who remains identified with their own selves.

Here’s a site where you’ll find my writings.
The Bravehearts of Belgrave High is now published. I have completed the first in a series of novels that I wrote for teens. It is the courageous story of a young girl growing up in a home filled with domestic violence. She also has to endure a school and neighbourhood full of bullies. We read how she maneuvres her way through such a difficult situation. Plus, how she grows because of it, among other themes in the novel.
The desired outcome for young readers is that they will be inspired to treasure their unique differences. If they don’t fit in with the system or with those around them, then they should realise that it’s quite okay not to fit in.
My first novel was written to help raise funds for the private foundation that I established, which might later become a charity. Click here if you’d like to be taken to the site where you can purchase this novel. If you cannot see the site, use a browser other than Chrome.
