Are you familiar with that? Doesn't it look very complicated?

The seven-stepped Emerald Formula:

Calcination (see THIS (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=49) thread for more)
Calcination is the first of seven major operations in the alchemy of transformation.

Chemically, the Calcination process involves heating a substance in a crucible or over an open flame until it is reduced to ashes. In the Arcanum Experiment, Calcination is represented by sulfuric acid, which the alchemists made from a naturally occurring substance called Vitriol. Sulfuric acid is a powerful corrosive that eats away flesh and reacts with all metals except gold.

Psychologically, this is the destruction of ego and our attachments to material possessions. Calcination is usually a natural humbling process as we are gradually assaulted and overcome by the trials and tribulations of life, though it can be a deliberate surrender of our inherent hubris gained through a variety of spiritual disciplines that ignite the fire of introspection and self-evaluation.

Physiologically, the Fire of Calcination can be experienced as the metabolic discipline or aerobic activity that tunes the body, burning off excesses from overindulgence and producing a lean, mean, fighting machine. Calcination begins in the Base or Lead Chakra at the sacral cup at the base of the spine.

In Society, the Calcination is expressed in the lives of revolutionaries, conquerors, and other warriors who try to overthrow the status quo.

On the Planetary level, it is the Fire of creation, the formation of a livable environment from molten matter and volcanic ashes.

According to the Emerald Tablet, "Its father is the Sun." Element: Fire. Color: Magenta; Purple-Red. Planet: Saturn

Dissolution (see THIS (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=48) thread for more)
Dissolution is the second major operation in the alchemy of transformation.

Chemically, it is the dissolving the ashes from Calcination in water. In the Arcanum Experiment, Dissolution is represented by iron oxide or rust, which illustrated the potentially corrosive powers of Water on even the hardest of metals. When processed, Vitriol breaks down into sulfuric acid and iron oxide, which are the first two arcana or secret ingredients. The Egyptians smelted Iron as far back as 1500 BCE and used iron compounds in tonics and as disinfectants.

Psychologically, this represents a further breaking down of the artificial structures of the psyche by total immersion in the unconscious, non-rational, feminine or rejected part of our minds. It is, for the most part, an unconscious process in which our conscious minds let go of control to allow the surfacing of buried material. It is opening the floodgates and generating new energy from the waters held back. Dissolution can be experienced as "flow," the bliss of being well-used and actively engaged in creative acts without traditional prejudices, personal hang-ups, or established hierarchy getting in the way.

Physiologically, Dissolution is the continuance of the kundalini experience, the opening-up of energy channels in the body to recharge and elevate every single cell. Dissolution takes place in the Genital or Tin Chakra and involves the lungs and spleen.

In Society, the process of steady growth through gradual Dissolution is exemplified by agrarian, monastic, or agriculture-based lifestyles.

On the Planetary level, Dissolution is the Great Flood, the cleansing of the earth of all that is inferior.

According to the Emerald Tablet, "Its mother is the Moon." Element: Water. Color: Light Blue. Planet: Jupiter. Metal: Tin.

Separation is the third of the operations of transformation in alchemy.

Chemically, it is the isolation of the components of Dissolution by filtration and then discarding any ungenuine or unworthy material. In the Arcanum Experiment, Separation is represented by the compound sodium carbonate, which separates out of water and appears as white soda ash on dry lakebeds. The oldest known deposits are in Egypt. The alchemists sometimes referred to this compound as Natron, which meant the common tendency in all salts to form solid bodies or precipitates.

Psychologically, this process is the rediscovery of our essence and the reclaiming of dream and visionary "gold" previously rejected by the masculine, rational part of our minds. It is, for the most part, a conscious process in which we review formerly hidden material and decide what to discard and what to reintegrate into our refined personality. Much of this shadowy material is things we are ashamed of or were taught to hide away by our parents, churches, and schooling. Separation is letting go of the self-inflicted restraints to our true nature, so we can shine through.

Physiologically, Separation is following and controlling the breath in the body as it works with the forces of Spirit and Soul to give birth to new energy and physical renewal. Separation begins in the Navel or Iron Chakra located at the level of the solar plexus.

In Society, Separation is expressed as the establishment of clans, cities, and nationalities.

Separation on the Planetary level is represented by the formation of landmasses and islands from the powerful forces of Air, Water, Earth, and Fire.

According to the Emerald Tablet, "The Wind carries it in its belly." Element: Air. Color: Orange-Red. Planet: Mars. Metal: Iron.

Conjunction is the fourth of the seven operations of alchemy.

Chemically, it is the recombination of the saved elements from Separation into a new substance. In the Arcanum Experiment, Conjunction is symbolized by a nitrate compound known as cubic-saltpeter or potassium nitrate, which the alchemists called Natron or simply Salt. Blue-colored Natron acid (aqua fortis) was made by mixing potassium nitrate with sulfuric acid and was used to separate silver from gold. The inert residue precipitated from the acid during the reaction like a child being born.

Psychologically, it is empowerment of our true selves, the union of both the masculine and feminine sides of our personalities into a new belief system or an intuitive state of consciousness. The alchemists referred to it as the Lesser Stone, and after it is achieved, the adept is able to clearly discern what needs to be done to achieve lasting enlightenment, which is union with the Overself. Often, synchronicities begin to occur that confirm the alchemist is on the right track.

Physiologically, Conjunction is using the bodys sexual energies for personal transformation. Conjunction takes place in the body at the level of the Heart or Copper Chakra.

In Society, it is the growth of crafts and technology to master the environment.

On the Planetary level, Conjunction occurs when primordial life forms are created from the energy of the Sun or lightning.

Correspondences of conjunction

According to the Emerald Tablet, "The Earth is its nurse." Element: Earth. Color: Green. Planet: Venus. Metal: Copper.

Fermentation is the fifth operation in the alchemy of transformation.

Fermentation is a two-stepped process that begins with the Putrefaction of the hermaphroditic "child" from the Conjunction resulting in its death and resurrection to a new level of being. The Fermentation phase then begins with the introduction of new life into the product of Conjunction to strengthen it and insure its survival.

Chemically, Fermentation is the growth of a ferment (bacteria) in organic solutions, such as occurs in the fermenting of milk to produce curds and cheese or in the fermenting of grapes to make wine. In the Arcanum Experiment, the process of Fermentation is represented by a compound called Liquor Hepatis, which is an oily, reddish-brown mixture of ammonia and the rotten-egg-smelling compound hydrogen sulfide. Egyptian alchemists made ammonia by heating camel dung in sealed containers and thought of it as a kind of refined Mercury that embodied the life force. Liquor Hepatis means "Liquor of the Liver," which they believed was the seat of the Soul, and the color they associated with the compound was green, the color of bile. Surprisingly, Liquor Hepatis exudes a wonderful fragrance, and the alchemists made a perfume of it called "Balsam of the Soul."

Psychologically, the Fermentation process starts with the inspiration of spiritual power from Above that reanimates, energizes, and enlightens the alchemist. Out of the blackness of his Putrefaction comes the yellow Ferment, which appears like a golden wax flowing out of the foul matter of the Soul. Its arrival is announced by a brilliant display of colors and meaningful visions called the "Peacocks Tail." Fermentation can be achieved through various activities that include intense prayer, desire for mystical union, breakdown of the personality, transpersonal therapy, psychedelic drugs, and deep meditation. Fermentation is living inspiration from something totally beyond us.

Physiologically, Fermentation is the rousing of living energy (chi or kundalini) in the body to heal and vivify. It is expressed as vibratory tones and spoken truths emerging from the Throat or Mercury Chakra.

In Society, the Fermentation experience is the basis of religion and mystical awareness.

On the Planetary level, it is the evolution of life to produce higher consciousness.

Correspondences of fermetation

According to the Emerald Tablet, during Fermentation, we raise consciousness from the darkness of the animal body through personal meditation and planetary evolution. "Separate the Earth from Fire," it tells us, "the subtle from the gross, gently and with great Ingenuity." Substance: Sulfur. Color: Turquoise. Planet: Venus. Metal: Mercury.

Distillation is the sixth major operation in the alchemy of transformation.

Chemically, it is the boiling and condensation of the fermented solution to increase its purity, such as takes place in the distilling of wine to make brandy. In the Arcanum Experiment, Distillation is represented by a compound known as Black Pulvis Solaris, which is made by mixing black antimony with purified sulfur. The two immediately clump together to make what the alchemists called a "bezoar," a kind of sublimated solid that forms in the intestines and brain.

Psychologically, Distillation is the agitation and sublimation of psychic forces is necessary to ensure that no impurities from the inflated ego or deeply submerged id are incorporated into the next and final stage. Personal Distillation consists of a variety of introspective techniques that raise the content of the psyche to the highest level possible, free from sentimentality and emotions, cut off even from ones personal identity. Distillation is the purification of the unborn Self -- all that we truly are and can be.

Physiologically, Distillation is raising the life force repeatedly from the lower regions in the cauldron of the body to the brain (what Oriental alchemists called the Circulation of the Light), where it eventually becomes a wondrous solidifying light full of power. Distillation is said to culminate in the Third Eye area of the forehead, at the level of the pituitary and pineal glands, in the Brow or Silver Chakra.

In Society, the Distillation experience is expressed as science and objective experimentation.

On the Planetary level, Distillation is the realization of the power of higher love, as the life force on the entire planet gradually seeks to become one force in nature based on a shared vision of Truth.

Correspondences of distillation

According to the Emerald Tablet, during the Distillation process, "It rises from Earth to Heaven and descends again to Earth, thereby combining within Itself the powers of both the Above and the Below." Substance: Mercury. Color: Deep Blue. Planet: Mercury. Metal: Silver.

Coagulation is the seventh and final operation of alchemy.

Chemically, Coagulation is the precipitation or sublimation of the purified Ferment from Distillation. In the Arcanum Experiment, Coagulation is represented by a compound called Red Pulvis Solaris, which is a reddish-orange powder of pure sulfur mixed with the therapeutic mercury compound, red mercuric oxide. The name Pulvis Solaris means "Powder of the Sun" and the alchemists believed it could instantly perfect any substance to which it was added.

Psychologically, Coagulation is first sensed as a new confidence that is beyond all things, though many experience it as a Second Body of golden coalesced light, a permanent vehicle of consciousness that embodies the highest aspirations and evolution of mind. Coagulation incarnates and releases the Ultima Materia of the soul, the Astral Body, which the alchemists also referred to it as the Greater or Philosophers Stone. Using this magical Stone, the alchemists believed they could exist on all levels of reality.

Physiologically, this stage is marked by the release of the Elixir in the blood that rejuvenates the body into a perfect vessel of health. A brain ambrosia is said to be released through the interaction of light from the phallic-shaped pineal gland and matter from the vulva of the pituitary. This heavenly food or viaticum both nourishes and energizes the cells without any waste products being produced. These physiological and psychological processes create the Second Body, a body of solid light that emerges through the Crown or Gold Chakra.

In Society, it is the living wisdom in which everyone exists within the same light of evolved consciousness and knowledge of Truth.

On the Planetary level, Coagulation is a return to the Garden of Eden, this time on a higher level in tune with the divine mind.

Correspondences of coagulation

According to the Emerald Tablet, "Thus will you obtain the Glory of the Whole Universe. All Obscurity will be clear to you. This is the greatest Force of all powers, because it overcomes every Subtle thing and penetrates every Solid thing." Substance: Salt. Color: Violet; Purple. Planet: Sun. Metal: Gold.


What would you do, if someone tells you that this whole 7-steps process could be achieved in only 3 basic and simple steps? Or should I say, we can reach Distillation and Coagulation by the following process.

I've been searching for an answer and practicing for a little more than 2 years and a half. I finally got my answer. A few of us are aware of that practice and reached that state at least once, only a few are able to stay in that state, but I believe everyone should be aware of it in the present time.

Sit down somewhere, close your eyes and...
1. Focus on your Pineal Gland continually
2. Breath deeply with your abdomen (7 seconds inhale, 7 seconds exhale)
3. Feel as much love as you can for ALL that is

Edited: For sure, that's the "big picture", if we go into more details... there are always more minor steps to a process...

Your pineal gland will get fully activated. The time it is going to take depends on different factors, but that should take more or less 3 hours and for a few... less than 25 minutes.

You'll feel a pressure on your forehead, in the middle of the head. That's the pineal gland that starts to get activated. That requires a great focus, a really great focus on that area of the brain. Your breathing with the abdomen is important, because it is what will help you to bring more light to your pineal gland. You will eventually need less mental efforts to feel your pineal gland and you'll be able to shift your emotions to a much higher degree of love for all that is. The harmony of your emotions is a key, because it is what will allow the energy to Open the Pineal Gland. No love, no resonance, no opening.

When it will unlock... you'll know it. Some changes are going to be felt, everything very physically, you'll feel the energy that enters by the top of your head right into what is known as the "Pillar of Light", a magnetic field will be created that pass through the pineal gland and a vortex of energy will be created absorbing Prana.


Your neurons will start to fire up, you'll have the biggest orgasm of your life (bigger than any basic sexual orgasm), your pineal gland will secrete hormones that will prevent any sort of negative emotions to exist, you'll make a first step into reversing the aging process and you'll realize why we call the Crown Chakra the Thousand-Petaled Lotus. Some people also call this state "the activation of the Lightbody" or the Merkaba.


I believe that the ultimate goal is to keep that state of mind or beyond... forever. That might be the real Elixir of Life, the real Philosopher's Stone. It's so simple to achieve, but still... it has been kept secret for thousand of years. You don't need to be clairvoyant or understand the Chakra system to reach enlightenment. Just Focus on the Pineal Gland, Breath properly and Feel love! How awesome life is?

If you want to know more about the Lightbody or the Merkaba, I suggest most of you to read those books written by Drunvalo Melchizedek:
* The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life Volume I, ISBN 1891824171
* The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life Volume II, ISBN 189182421X
* Living in the Heart, ISBN 1891824430
* Serpent of Light - Beyond 2012, ISBN 1578634016

Drunvalo received teachings from Thoth, Hermes Trismegistus from 1984 to 1991. To make it short, Drunvalo knew about a more optimized form of meditation that would save Thoth a lot of time. Thoth found 52 000 years ago how to stay alive and conscious in the same body, but that method really was tenuous - it was like hanging on by a thread. All of this is really well explained in his book.

Thanks for sharing Hyrage and welcome to the forum.

Perhaps you could write a little intro about yourself.
I would look forward to reading that.

Yes, but what is with the rush? :p

3 and 7 and even 9 and sometimes 12 all, in the end, comes down to 1 and/or 0.

That is all that is needed really. No path is quicker, it depends on the individual what works best.

...and you'll realize why we call the Crown Chakra the Thousand-Petaled Lotus. Some people also call this state "the activation of the Lightbody" or the Merkaba.

I understand your point, but there really must be quicker paths for everyone. The way we, humans, are structured leads to very specific and universal paths. Nobody will get healthier by drinking Pepsi or eathing fast food. Everyone would benefit of a physical training in order to avoid the Parkinson's desease at one point in their life.

Also, that's because there are quicker paths that I added this:

However, we always have the opportunity to practice or not a new method.

I once made an exception to that: i was already sick, and needed to get some silver in me for its antibacterial effects, so i placed some in my coke (it has more bite then pepsi ;) ) and it worked pretty well - last few sips always tasted like metal though. :D

The dose determines poison or medicine. :cool:

Thanks for the clarity, Hyrage.

Drunvalo Melchizedek's books are phenomenal. They are so inter-dimensional.

As a result of being exposed to this knowledge contained in the above mentioned books, my awareness has been attuned to disengage the logical mind and vacillate between strata of visual imagery and imagination.

I know that I am split between my emotional and mental body. Readily, I am resisting certain emotional triggers and feel a great sense of dis-ease if I allow my self to settle into a subtler more pervasive seat of awareness.

And yet to be reminded of the simplicity is gratifying, yielding great renewed hope. Thanks.

Could you imagine where humanity would be if we rectified all the misconception and deception? For truly, we have the esoteric principles and knowledge that could intrinsically restructure the minds and future foundation of our society by anchoring the subtle truths very much understood by the indigenous cultures and shamans.

Yet it seems that this misunderstanding, is the impetus and Raison d'Ítre in circumstancing the circle of life.. The 'Divide and conquer' egregore set in place by masons has created a system so intricate and finely tuned that the minds of the 'uninitiated' or rather, the yet to awaken are oblivious to the subtle manipulation that expounds their very length of breath.

For you see if we lived the way of life of our indigenous ancestors, we would intrinsically understand the harmonious balance at play in nature and to a greater extent not see the need to delve further in any given technological advancement because it wouldn't register within our minds that nature was in any way inferior to the actions of man and duly required greater efficacy other than what was given to us by our sacred mother.

-Loving this forum.

I was dreaming about this post and sacred geometry. In essence, the indigenous cultures have a more matriarchal approach whereas the western influence has stimulated a secular patriarchal approach in understanding reality.

Whats interesting is that the so named Illuminati reportedly, worship Lucifer. Their whole realm of knowledge and symbolism readily stems from the Kabbalah and the tree of knowledge or tree of life, the 10 Sephiroth and whatever other accounts of esoteric/exoteric keys of knowledge. In terms of black and white, the processions and rituals performed by the majority of the occult who dominate if not all seats of power within our society delve into the dark arts, or rather have succumbed to manipulating the keys of light by keeping to secrecy in order to limit the dissolution of 'their' power.

Now, it has also been said that Lucifer was God's greatest Angel, who fell from the higher realms in order to claim dominion over hell.

Does anyone see the connection? I'm somewhat limited in my ability to articulate it with words.


Notice how the snake has lead us to the pinnacle of the Tree of Knowledge, which could be likened to where we are now by contemporary standards. In effect we are expanding upon so many fields of knowledge that have led to higher seats of consciousness and greater awareness. Ultimately the revelations of science will reveal the wisdom of the ages that we have long forgotten; that all of this is of one source, inspired by Prime Creator.

All areas of life are alluding to something greater, something that will either inspire greater calamity for the uninformed or a deeper understanding of peace for the awakened. Although there is ambiguity between dates with the Mayan Calendar and the Gregorian calendar, The End Times, mark the Cycle of Return, which in my eyes may be likened to a collective shift in understanding the intrinsic flow of life; no longer will it be plausible to consider that we be separate from nature or all of life.

From an energetic POV, as I mentioned on another post, collective humanity has reached a level of integrity wherein, we are conscious enough to assimilate the subtler truths and anchor these vibrations and/or grid patterns on our own. Truly, we will no longer be stumbling children but are beginning to walk.

David R. Hawkins through the use of kinesiology has very empowering research that correlates with the multitude of other trails one might uncover and more specifically, how spaceship earth is increasing its frequency, because what was solid is in fact becoming less dense. Secrecy is a myth. What we are beginning to understand is that ultimately, everything is already known from inception by the Universal Mind. We are entering a subtler realm of reality where transparency mirrors integrity, because it implies an understanding of your divinity and how unity is prevalent amongst all of God's creation.

As discombobulated this is, by me expressing it has allowed this affirmation to instill a greater knowing within my being.
Either I burn by the fire or surrender to the light :D
________ ___ __ _

I'd say, it's not so much a rush as it is a calling. As a Lightworker or one who has experienced the light we are forever inspired as a catalyst to achieve nirvana, perfection or unity.

From my experience specifically, I have denied the simpler spiritual unfoldment because of my stubbornness and belief that contrast will stimulate greater shifts in progress. Therefore instead of looking within myself in order to transmute the polarities, I have been somewhat waging a war with my outer experience. I have a very strong desire to achieve the sacred mystical with the opposite sex. There is no other form of perfection that arises out of this world with which I would even consider as having more of a significance on my life. Therefore I somewhat have a running wager if you will with the Creator; within the worldly realm, I desire a union that transcends all boundaries and whenever I cannot abide by the pain of attachment in fulfilling this desire, I realign my being for the search of truth and enlightenment. Ironically, when I find some stability, I tend to cater back to my initial desire in experiencing true love with another and begin the external chase again..

The search for a quicker path is the yearning and compassion that compels the truth to be understood by all, that we may all realize the union as one.. Yet, In place, we sacrifice our own well being and unequivocally the quicker path as well by searching for resolution outside of the self that will alleviate the suffering for others.

Readily, there is no 'other'.

But all in all, Dev is right, intrinsically there is no rush. It would be arrogant to presume that with my limited awareness I could 1-up God's plan. It comes to the understanding that eye am a gifted witness experiencing the divine through all things.

The last step is by the grace of God.

In Lak'ech and Blessings to all.

The human race has to evolve, the get better not only for themselves, but equally for others, because the existence and thoughts of one person also affect everything else in the world we live in. If you are conscious of that, then to say there is no rush is a highly selfish act, that thought is based on the EGO (intellectual influences), because in reality... your time shouldn't matter, you are not really important.

There is probably no rush, but if you do understand this... that would be highly natural to use the best tools around you to step up your progression for the ALL - it's an opportunity, isn't it?

05-02-2010, 08:55 AM
I disagree to agree..

When I said there is no rush, I was implying that time is relative to the ego. For readily this course of evolution is at God's pace. For truly there is no 'I' and there is no other outside of Self; there is only one.

Time is irrelevant, in so much that we are ultimately not in control, but acting out of programming and any attempt at controlling one's conscious evolution in hopes of finding a quicker path stems from the ego.

The notion that I am not really important is nonsense and completely violates the dictum of existence; All is one.

If your familiar with Drunvalo's books then you might remember the notion that as fractals of a hologram, if one piece were to cease to exist then the whole matrix would collapse as well. Verily, every iota of existence is sacred and fundamental to existence.

Trust me, if I could push a button to transmute my being to pure light in service of the high most I would, but I have reincarnated to elevate my present state of awareness and walk this path again that I may increase the light quotient overall through my relative experience.
