7 Words of Alchemy
by Richard Grey
The word alchemy is used as a metaphor for consciously creating dimensional shifts that psychologically and materially change our reality. Choosing not to change is equivalent to inertia; not changing, we are inert - some say ‘dead’. There is more to life than sticking with what is comfortable, and everyone has the ability to manifest dramatic change towards self-improvement. Moving from cautious uncertainty about change, towards intimacy and deepening of experience, occurs by appreciating possibilities and valuing potential more highly than the status quo.
Alchemy is all about root-level change. Having fully realised that change is necessary, or preferred, then the decision to change is instant. Acting on decision leads to freedom – to a fresh start. Such ‘Goodbye’ moments are powerful, especially those concerning major life decisions, like work, relationships, and where we live. These are often watershed moments.
We need a clear vision and the intention to do everything to manifest that change, including asking for help, expecting success, yet also taking responsibility for everything caused by our actions, having deep self-awareness and consciousness of others. Saying Yes to life is all about willingness to let go and take a quantum leap into the unknown, trusting the process and that all will be well, no matter what the outcome.
