As the 21st century begins, humanity is walking a path where our consciousness invites our minds to seek new relationships. A relationship that does not involve different beings interacting with each other, but rather separate selves cooperating within the same being. Human complexity develops from its physical, physiological and mechanical aspects only to its spiritual, mental and emotional and physical synergistic system as a whole.
We are all, subtly, led to reconsider our own individual existence as a whole universe in which our personal awareness of reality is the creation of a perceptive puzzle filtered through the deep layers of what makes us whole. Since that time, the beautiful self that we each represent, has awakened to the awareness that we are beings of energy experiencing life in its most dense form in an environment called physical. The transformation between the subtle and the dense is the alchemical path through which we pass from an intangible form of light to a certain form of light. Understanding this alchemy means empowering yourself by relating our truth to our reality.
This is the ultimate path of the teacher and the path of the wise. Here are the 4 secrets of Body/Mind/Spirit alchemy. Each gives us a glimpse of the subtlest yet most beautiful relationship of all: our own relationship to Life.
1 – Alchemy of the senses (Emotional)
Our senses are powerful feedback concepts that provide us with the closest data to travel to Life so that our existence can relate to its reality. The combination of all the senses is the highest sensory experience by which a being, in the present moment, can regulate his perception of what he perceives. The merging of all the senses into one moment gives the mind the ability to apply its best images to what is invisible. From the invisible to the visible, the great emotional alchemy is the magic that turns feelings into matter.
2 – Alchemy of Comprehension (Mental)
Thoughts are powerful, creative, and inextricably linked to our emotional, spiritual, and physical selves. The greatest secret of the mental dimension is embodied in understanding. Understanding is the most structured level of awareness. It is a withdrawal into the density of what is incomprehensible. The secret of alchemy is the element of consciousness. The thought process is the strongest bridge between who we are and how we experience it. Consciousness is a secret that guards what enters the subconscious. Let’s empower it and truly become a true catalyst for our conscious reality.
3 – Alchemy of proprioception (Physical)
Proprioception is the sense of relatively close proximity of body parts and the force of effort used in movement. It is the individual’s own perception related to bodily sensations. It is a feedback mechanism from body through body to body. While it may seem as if the body, alone, commands the systems to balance, move, and adjust, it also needs support behind the scenes. The secret is to learn the subtle communication between body and mind through sensory feedback. Associating certain sensory information that comes from sensation in relation to the external environment and vice versa is the preferred channel of communication for consciousness.
4 – Alchemy of intuition (Spiritual)
Intuition is language. Most of the time, it was a lost language which, like Sanskrit, was forgotten from the masses while remaining the most ancient way for Humanity to communicate and relate to itself.
The great secret of intuition is listening and the deepest core of this truth is silence. The most amazing dichotomy for the mind where what appears to be silence is actually filled with information, clues and truth. When this source becomes trusted, the emotional, mental and physical dimensions naturally align with it and flow effortlessly with purpose and meaning. Let’s take a deeper look. Let us be willing to forgo unimportant words so that essential wisdom becomes the loudest of all “not-to-be-remembered” mysteries.
