How does one navigate nigredo?

I'm not even sure if this is where i am stuck but let me give a bit of info. So it's felt like i constantly take one step forward and one step back in my life. No matter what i do or try nothing seems to work. I feel lost, confused, and yet i can't see the way forward. I've no motivations, no idea of who i really am or what i want in life. I've been on the spiritual journey for almost 6 years now so i have some understanding of the process ans such. Yesterday was particularly tough exploeing my mind, it was like i was in a storm of my own thoughts, i began to see all the aspects of myself holding me back and making me feel like a waste of life and a failure as a human being, all my faults, weaknesses, imperfections, laziness, weak, procrastination, bad habits, etc....

Is Alchemy related to magic? : alchemy

It depends on what you call "magic". If it's the kind of stuff that is popular now on social media, like TikTok, it's a rather modern concept with vague roots in XIXth century occultism (when it's not straight made-up for the video). That kind of magic is really "new", despite some adepts claiming to have century old practice. But, there is another form of magic, that is probably as old as alchemy or even older. It's a problem of definition.*{display:inline-block;vertical-align:middle}.t9oUK2WY0d28lhLAh3N5q{margin-top:-23px}._2KqgQ5WzoQRJqjjoznu22o{display:inline-block;-ms-flex-negative:0;flex-shrink:0;position:relative}._2D7eYuDY6cYGtybECmsxvE{-ms-flex:1 1 auto;flex:1 1 auto;overflow:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis}._2D7eYuDY6cYGtybECmsxvE:hover{text-decoration:underline}._19bCWnxeTjqzBElWZ...

Alchemy for the modern day chemist? : alchemy

Hi everyone,I've got a few questions about alchemy that I was hoping to have answered by the community here. I'll share a bit of background below because it influences the perspective from which I am approaching the topic of alchemy.I have a PhD in organic chemistry and currently hold a position as a postdoctoral research associate. I have also been practicing meditation for 6 years. I've done a variety of practices from many traditions, though mostly Buddhist. I am open minded to spiritual/esoteric (and even paranormal) topics and I believe that many esoteric traditions hold genuine secrets that are not known to the average layperson of our culture. At the same time, I always try to maintain a healthy degree of skepticism because I think there is a lot of garbage in the esoteric world (re...

You can feel euphoric on-demand with your goosebumps : alchemy

For me, feeling this became possible, after clearing my energetic pathways.Commanding this energetic flow of natural ecstasy and making it appear whenever and wherever I willed it became easier. I can even make one limb flow with this energy and that limb gets covered in Goosebumps.What does goosebumps have to do with it?This ecstatic energy I'm talking about is present underneath your skin when you get goosebumps from positive stimuli.Everyone can do this but not everyone is aware that there is some sort of energy current flowing when they get goosebumps. This is your spiritual energy that comes from your energetic (spiritual) body.Before you start replying that goosebumps are only a physical reaction and there is no such thing as an energy underneath it or that it isn't spiritual.Conside...

Energetics Given | Mastering Alchemy

Zadkiel: This is much more than a teaching. This is a set of energetics that is now being given to you. Energetics that substantiate and hold the knowledge that you are being given. Without these energetics, this knowledge could not be received by you nor the students. It is required that this set of energetics be present for us to articulate and give forth what is now being given. So much more than language is being transmitted this very moment. Many light frequencies are being transmitted. You are receiving them through the use of your Lightbody. There are various patterns and configurations that are being given at this very moment. They are not only light frequencies, but are also patterns of geometrics and currents of sounds that you are not able to hear with your physical body. Your ...

Knowing Beauty | Mastering Alchemy

Zadkiel: Many changes are occurring within you on a physical level. There are components within the physical body that must be made to accommodate a fuller integration of the Lightbody into form.  It is a change from the carbon base form into another form that you perceive as crystalline in nature.   This is occurring as your consciousness shifts and you begin to release attachment to the physical world. It will not happen overnight but you are seeing changes now.  It all began as you agreed to activate those components of the Living Lightbody attached to higher dimensional realms and to Universal Mind. This changes your conscious awareness and the realities you can access. It will also change the physicality.   Jim:  If I were to take the word “beauty” as a knowingness, is beauty going t...

Preserving glassware : alchemy

Good day everyone, Looking for some quick input.Background: Recently just had my 2nd piece of glassware crack and break during a steam distillation of an herb. There was a brief emergency and left the still unattended for less than 10 minutes, I forgot to put back my clamp on my boiling flask neck after adding a bit more water & water/plant matter spilled over into my hot plate, carbonized, and caused the base of my boiling flask to crack. Obviously I was careless and this led to my flask cracking.I am building a small copper wire base to place inbetween the base of my hot plate and my boiling flask. My thinking is that if anything similar were to happen again the plant matter and water will drip to the bottom of the hot plate & the copper, likely displacing the extra heat evenly t...
