Module 1 The Law of Attraction and Cosmic Ordering
Stage 1 Nigredo
Metal : Lead
Lead is very soft and highly malleable. Highly resistant to corrosion, lead is the ruler of the dark, prime matter.
The prime matter is the womb of the universe where anything can be born and manifested, in the dark womb of the mother.
Module 1 Cosmic Ordering invites you to tap into the prime matter of the universe, dimensions, the foundations of space continuum, to manifest what you want with clear intentions and words.
Operation of transformation : Calcination
This is the initial stage of Soul Alchemy, turning the lead base ego into gold consciousness. Eliminates what is no longer needed, including tightly held beliefs and limitations. At this stage, the task is to surrender to the process and allow it to burn away the barriers and obstacles to our whole and authentic self.
Stage 1 Nigredo
Module 2 Paradigm Shift
Metal : Tin
Tin is a malleable, ductile, highly crystalline, silvery-white metal.
The crystalline structure can be bent.
Tin is associated with a philosophical view of life.
Module 2 Paradigm Shift invites you to shift your paradigm at the core of your beliefs and embrace new philosophical insights.
Operation of transformation : Congelation
Shedding old patterns, paradigms, beliefs and transformation of the unconscious. Connecting with the emotions, deep trauma and the roots of experiences which have formed and limited our lives. Shaping the new Paradigm necessary for transformation.
Stage 1 Nigredo
Module 3 Obstacles and Challenges
Metal : Iron
Iron is a lustrous, ductile, malleable, silver-grey metal and is the most abundant element in the universe.
Iron symbolizes predominantly male energy connected to physical power and growth. It promotes emotions such as confidence, courage and strength.
Module 3 Obstacles and Challenges invites you to overcome your fear barriers and strengthen your inner fire and courage.
Operation of transformation : Fixation
Encountering your shadow and discovering what is hidden, and needs to be discarded. The birth of wise decision making to support you to live with greater passion and healthy self- expression. Deeper understanding and integration of the emotions. Recognising and releasing the obstacles to your personal and spiritual growth.
Stage 1 Nigredo
Module 4 Life Purpose
Metal : Copper
Copper is a reddish-coloured metal.
Copper embodies the nurturing aspect and youthful aspects of women. It symbolises characteristics e.g. charisma, feminine beauty, artistic creativity, affection, caring, and balance. It is also considered a healing metal which enhances our ability to live a more fulfilling life.
Module 4 Life Purpose invites you to listen your inner voice and guidance to achieve your life purpose with clarity.
Operation of transformation : Dissolution
Finding the inner compass to navigate our path with clarity on the inner and outer levels enabling us to envision our Life Purpose. Greater acceptance and self-love. The realisation that our old limiting paradigm was a self-imposed prison which prevented us from manifesting our true potential.
Stage 1 Nigredo
Module 5 Self-Healing
Metal : Mercury
Mercury is a shiny, silvery, liquid metal, sometimes called quicksilver, and is associated with death, mystery, and transformation.
Mercury is also related to travel and movement, be it of physical or spiritual nature.
The alchemists considered it one of the three principal substances on Earth, along with salt and sulfur.
Module 5 Self-Healing invites you to open to spiritual healing and transformation within.
Operation of transformation : Digestion
Here lies the gold, the Sun energy and the opening of the heart centre. A stage of preparation of the physical, emotional and mental and spiritual vehicles to support them to accommodate the awakening of the serpent, Kundalini energy. An influx of light and higher frequency energies. Increased flow and blossoming of the divine life force.
Stage 1 Nigredo
Module 6 Quantum Healing of the Inner Child
Metal : Silver
Silver is a very ductile and malleable metal.
In alchemy, silver is one of the three base metals often used as prime material at the inception of a work.
Silver, a symbol of purity, holds philosophical traits of feminine expression as well as attributes of intuition, contemplation, vision, clarity, persistence, awareness, focus and subtle strength.
Its energies also include healing, protection, emotion, love, wisdom and dreams.
Module 6 Quantum healing of the Inner Child invites you to develop your feminine attributes and connect deeper with your Inner Child through an intense process of purification.
Operation of transformation 6.1 : Distillation
Deeper purification at the core of our being. The integration of our personal and spiritual realisations, allowing them to become solid and permanent aspects of our lives. The strength to discard limiting behaviours and conditioning permanently from our lives. Discovering the ease of living moment to moment. Self-realisation.
Operation of transformation 6.2 : Sublimation
By rebuilding our connection and restoring trust with our inner child, quantum healing occurs resulting in success and expanding every area of our lives. This increased reliance strengthens our resolve and brings great benefits. A strong foundation is built and prepared for the higher levels of energy and consciousness to be supported.
Operation of transformation 6.3 : Separation
Here we begin to see through the veil of reality. Detachment from our previous perception of our ‘selves’ and begin to see clearly ‘as within so without’ and ‘as above so below’. Starting to consciously co-operate in one’s own evolution and seeing right through our outworn identity constructions and beliefs.
Module 7 Soul Awakening, Intuition and Sixth Sense
Stage 2 Albedo
Metal : Gold
Gold is a soft, shiny, yellow, heavy, malleable, ductile transition metal. One of the more valued elements, gold represents perfection in all matter, on any level. It also symbolizes humanity’s goal to contact the soul within and reach a heightened spiritual awareness and purpose.
Gold is a symbol of wealth, prosperity, authority and charisma. Its attributes refer to the awakening of the soul, the higher faculties of Intuition & the sixth sense.
This phase of awakening of the soul's journeys embodies the connection and fusion with the spirit within.
Module 7 Soul Awakening, 6th Sense and Intuition invites you to contact your soul and access and develop your highest intuitive and spiritual faculties.
Operation of transformation 7.1 : Union
Healing Emotional Soul Wounds. Awakening of soul memories. The pending birth of the Divine Child in the womb of the Divine Mother. Opening of the Golden Gate.
Operation of transformation 7.2 : Incineration
Awakening and cultivating purity of purpose in life. The desire to serve our true authentic nature on a personal and collective level. Commitment to discard everything in the way of the unfoldment and flowering of our life purpose. Letting go of all that is no longer serving us and retaining only what is of true worth.
Operation of transformation 7.3 : Fermentation
A stage of increased spiritual awareness and capacities of the higher realms. Dream-recall, healing abilities, psychic and intuitive gifts can unfold, along with an increased connection with our pure nature. Deep soul contact. The transformation of creative and sexual energy is shifted and refined to a higher level of expression.
Stage 3 Citrinitas
Module 8 The Divine Child
Metal : Platinum
Platinum is a malleable and ductile, gray-white transition metal. The metal is corrosion-resistant.
In alchemy, platinum helps open your awareness to your inner-wisdom, peace and knowledge. It represents determination, faith, assertiveness, grit, and seeing our manifestations and works to completion.
Platinum was thought, amongst alchemists, to be the combination of silver and gold. This combination is also interpreted as the alchemical marriage of the feminine and masculine within, giving birth to the divine child.
In this phase of empowerment, the soul merges with the divine.
Module 8 The Divine Child invites you to awaken the spirit, empowering the soul with strength and faith to fulfil manifestations and works in greater alignment.
Operation of transformation : Multiplication
Here the soul merges with the divine. The divine child is the offspring of the alchemical marriage of opposites, light and dark, sun and moon, male and female. The sacred art of alchemy is born in the image of the divine magical child. It holds the key of transformation and transmutation for us all.
Module 9 The Medicine Wheel and your New Vision
Stage 4 Rubedo
Elixir of the Soul
The elixir of the soul is the elixir of life “elixir vitae”, a liquid that would indefinitely prolong life and was believed to be allied with the philosopher’s stone, symbolizing perfection at its finest, enlightenment, and heavenly bliss.
When the process is “elaborated to the Red,” “Rubedo”, the soul who has merged with the spirit in the previous alchemical stage is now ready to ground its gifts and work into the physical world.
In this phase of embodiment, the soul fulfils its destiny on a greater picture.
Module 9 The Medicine Wheel and Your New vision invites you to embody your new vibration and align to your soul purpose and authentic goals on an individual and collective level.
