From CHAPTER 1: The Purpose of Archangel Alchemy
How Does Archangel Alchemy Work?
Archangel Alchemy is different from most other forms of healing, in that it sparks an alchemical process. In this healing system, we use the symbolism of the diamond to refer to the multifaceted divine soul. Ancient alchemists knew that the soul was the Philosopher’s Stone, and the closer one got to their own soul, the closer they got to the uncovering the fabled “elixir of youth” and attaining the secrets of life itself.
The ancient science of alchemy is said to be a process of transmutation, whereby an original substance is separated into its greater and lesser elements. Both elements are purified and then reunified into a more refined substance. The process is repeated until, eventually, the greater absorbs the lesser and the purification of the original substance is complete. For example, it is said that alchemists were once able to transform lead into gold via this method. The Philosopher’s Stone was said to be the key magical ingredient needed to perform this function.
Alchemists worked with symbols to describe each aspect of the alchemical process. In terms of spiritual alchemy, symbolism takes you out of the logical mind and opens your imagination. When we think of the difference between a sign and a symbol, as Carl Jung pointed out, a sign represents something we already know the meaning of, such as a stop sign. However, symbols tend to refer to the unknown or something we may not already know the meaning of.2
Symbols, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs and our modern-day emojis, can also contain multiple meanings. They are not a linear language, with just one explanation for each image. Working with symbols can, thus, help to stretch your mind and get you thinking outside the box. Symbols compel you to wonder what they might mean and that, in turn, forces you to open your imagination to search for the answer or meaning. Your ability to imagine is exactly what you need to be able to step beyond the confines of 3D physical reality and into your true multidimensional magnificence. This is why I like to think of symbols as doorways or gateways that can help you connect more easily with your higher self.
In terms of alchemy as a spiritual process, the Archangels want to help us purify our lower or human self, so that it can be reunited with our higher or divine self. It is our human programming, with all of its hurts, traumas, judgements, and misconceptions, that prevents us from living our highest potential. We can think of the Philosopher’s Stone as the essence of our own soul, which is unconditional love. If we embrace our hardships, misunderstandings, issues, and blocks with more and more love, and do it repeatedly, we move ever closer to the goal of oneness via enlightenment, and thus, move closer to achieving lasting harmony and peace for ourselves and our planet.
The attunements gifted you by each of the Archangels within this book aim to initiate a powerful alchemical process within you. Symbolism and visualization add a key element to the healing process as it helps you to witness your own metamorphosis. As you blaze with the holy diamond fire of the archangels, you embody their gifts and qualities and begin to shed all that is no longer serving you. Through working with Archangel Alchemy and performing the self-healing process regularly, you may find that old habits begin to shift and your preferences and tastes for certain things may change seemingly overnight.
Angelic Choirs Meditation and Attunement
Every time we go through a personal challenge, it heralds a time of rebirth and resurrection, so what better time to acknowledge the end—or death—of the idea of separation and allow ourselves to be reborn in the unity of God/Goddess/Source/Divine?
There is nothing more empowering than allowing yourself to really feel at one with the God/Goddess within. In this way, you discover that everything comes from within and everything exists within the space and existence we occupy presently, here in the “now”.
When you discover this incredible knowledge, you come to realize that all things, even Angels and Ascended Masters, are part of you. They exist both inside and outside you, and it is, in fact, you who invokes their energy and creates the bridge in consciousness between Heaven and Earth.
This meditation shows you how to invoke the angelic hierarchy in order to bring healing to our planet on both a personal and universal level. For the very reason we exist in the physical world is to embody spirit in matter—in short, to live Heaven on Earth.
◊ Close your eyes, and take two deep, cleansing breaths. Let go of cares and worries, and feel yourself at peace.
◊ Imagine your entire body now filled with pure white light, and see yourself surrounded by angels. Feel your connection to your physical body, and maintain that connection throughout this meditation.
◊ Now start to expand your consciousness, like a bubble growing in size from the very core of you, and stretch it out in every direction to infinity.
◊ Feel your limitlessness and, as you expand, realize that you are travelling in consciousness out into the universe, past the planets and stars, yet you are still connected to your physical body but have grown in consciousness.
◊ Allow your energy to now travel farther up and out until you come to a glorious golden dimension of light. This is the Angelic Kingdom.
◊ As you connect to this space, you feel thousands of Angels around you, singing above you, and you are filled with pure love.
◊ The Angels tell you that you are to receive a special blessing from each of the angelic choirs on behalf of the whole of humanity.
◊ Firstly, your Guardian Angel steps forward and kisses you on both cheeks. They hand you a gift to symbolize your transformation into an Earth Angel. Take note of this gift, as you will see it in the physical world in a few days.
◊ Next, the Archangels surround you and give you a blessing to strengthen your own connection to God/Goddess and embody your own leadership qualities.
◊ The next group of Angels to surround you are the Principalities. They ask you to accept their blessing on behalf of any groups you belong to, such as your place of work, your city, or your country. They work to protect human rights and thus ask you to be a champion for this cause by standing up for your own rights.
◊ The Powers now bring forward a blessing of divine justice and protection for you and the whole world.
◊ The Virtues gift you with miracles, both on a personal level and to increase the awareness of magic for the whole population of Earth.
◊ Divine wisdom is gifted to you by the Dominions, and they remind you of the laws of cause and effect. “As above, so below” is their message.
◊ The Thrones govern all relationships, from human interaction right through to how the planets affect each other. They gift you with positive energy to become a global mediator for peace.
◊ The Cherubim are guardians of the light and the stars. They bless your light body, allowing you to connect more easily with the light and to help you embody the boundless love of the divine on Earth.
◊ The next highest order of God’s Angels are known as the Seraphim. As these mighty Angels now surround you, their light is so bright you can barely see them. No negative energy can permeate their light, so they offer the ultimate in divine protection.
◊ Finally, the Elohim gift you a blessing for the divinity you represent and chant over you, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of Hosts.” The “hosts” they speak of are we mere humans. For we have no idea of our own true power. The “Lord God of Hosts” refers to divine spirit that exists within our physical matter. It is the marriage of above and below. And, as we come to realize that we are vessels of the divine, we take responsibility for our lives and embody Heaven on Earth.
◊ Spend a moment bathing in your Source light, and send pure love out across the cosmos. Then connect back to your physical body and open your eyes.
