The Incredible Power of "Transmutation" on the Spiritual Path

Submitted by Open on Thu, 04/26/2018 - 04:45

I have to pinch myself sometimes, being here in this physical body. I know well a higher dimensional existence of pure light, where thought and creativity happen at lightening speed; where you feel completely interconnected with sentient life and can travel through the cosmos in a blink of the third eye. But I am here in this dense - and wonderful! - physical body. And I'm reminded that light can still change it. In fact consciousness can change all our 3D experiences and creations.

You just have to keep reminding yourself to let the light of the soul flow in.
Then "Transmutation" of the 'base matter' becomes very possible...

Everything is of consciousness - nothing is fixed and rigid

It's natural to want to change one's life for the better, in an authentic way, meaning: to find greater alignment with the natural flow of the moment; to create magically as one with the Universe; to be more sovereign and empowered; to unfurl a deeper degree of inner harmony and peace. All of these become immediately possible when we remember, and embody in our lives, one fundamental truth...

That everything is of consciousness, of energy, even the physical body, and therefore it is not fixed and rigid in time and space. It is ever changing, and has the possibility to transform for the better, by the infusion of Unity Consciousness through your soul.

Infusion of soul is the key to Transmutation. If we can soften the body and mind from its rigid judgments of reality, then we'll open up an alchemical vessel through which to infuse soul. Soul is your interconnection with the Universe, and when you'll truly in it, then the infinite possibility of the Universe becomes available to you.

All know that the drop merges into the ocean.
But few know that the ocean merges into the drop!

Rumi

What might we experience when soul begins to infuse into the bodymind?

Here are some of the experiences that become possible...

  1. Expansion of inner peace, as you connect up to the timeless nature of existence
  2. Enhanced intuition, as you become increasingly aware of the natural flow of the moment
  3. Greater inner harmony, as you realign battered DNA
  4. Expansion into higher dimensions of consciousness and existence
  5. Feeling guided and supported by your own 'Team' of Higher dimensional guides

So a Universe of infinite possibility opens up as we infuse soul. But we will have to work at it. We will have to be committed and persevere with great patience. Reality is a complex illusion, designed to make the sense of it very real. Pain and discomfort are real experiences, that can create doubt and mistrust when we don't necessarily get what we think we might want. Doubt and mistrust are the very antithesis of Transmutation. If you believe that reality is going to work in a particular way, then the strong likelihood is you'll create that (at least for some period of time). Likewise with unconsciousness - if you're unconsciously conditioned through karma to create reality in a particular way, then so you shall.

Developing empowering spiritual practice

That's why it's essential to develop a spiritual practice that takes you deep into the layers of body and mind - that cause you to confront, and 'normalise' in the phenomena, so that you begin to treat them merely as relativistic experiences and not fixed or absolute. With each venture into your inner world, you'll encounter the limitations of judgement and fixed belief, be they physical, emotional, mental or karmic. It's in these places some form of fixed limitation has been established. But as we penetrate deep into them with the light of pure awareness, then they become malleable, and flexible to change.

Here's the point: as I soften the inner world and progressively render it more pliable, then like a gentle flower through withering concrete, the soul will penetrate into any crusty judgments, 'compost' them down and transform the landscape with infinite possibility. Crucially this then begins to reflect into our outer world to change all aspects of it: from our relationships to how we live and work. This is the incredible possibility of alchemical transmutation.

At Openhand, one of the key practices we apply for alchemical Transmutation possibility, is what we call the "Openhand Bow", which has been developed from the ancient practice of Kriya Yoga (introduced in "Autobiography of Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda). It's where you bend deep into any tightness, discomfort, resistance or judgment of the moment, and intensify it, so that you have the possibility to redefine your experience of it.

You surrender into it and discover the pure presence of the One, so the limitation no longer defines you.
I have recorded a download meditation for you to sample and purchase at this link.

You can also gain free video guidance of the Openhand Bow, and additional perspectives on the phenomena of "Transmutation" in this Shift Diary here below. It's around 20 minutes long, so do put some quality time aside - your transmutation into a more evolved form is greatly worth it! Besides, I've illuminated the video with some tremendous inspirational timelapse photography of our blessed Mother Nature. Enjoy and be inspired...

I came across this amazing poem today by my favourite poet David Whyte, which deeply speaks and also captures the great power of transmutation in life - SO beautiful for the Sunday vibe.

JUST BEYOND YOURSELF: SETTING DIRECTION FOR A FUTURE LIFE

Just beyond 
yourself.

It’s where 
you need 
to be.

Half a step 
into 
self-forgetting
and the rest
restored 
by what 
you’ll meet.

There is a road 
always beckoning.

When you see
the two sides 
of it
closing together
at that far horizon
and deep in 
the foundations
of your own 
heart
at exactly
the same
time,

that’s how
you know 
it's where
you
have 
to go.

That’s how
you know
it’s the road
you 
have 
to follow.

That’s how
you know
you have
to go.

That’s
how you know.

It’s just beyond
yourself,
and
it’s 
where you 
need to be.

That's amazing - what a gift he has - probably my favourite poet too.

Loved this...

Hi Open and everyone,

I feel blessed to be part of this community.

As an empath I have used numbness and disconnection to avoid taking on energies and responsabilities that are not mine. I now find myself in a place where I'm opening up more and feeling more and I'm scared of feeling people out because then I'll feel obliged to want to help them and take on tasks that aren't meant for me. At the moment my mum is in hospital and I feel there is some pressure for me to help out more. I'm not sure if its real pressure or if it's my guilt. I feel guilty for having found peace and so when people are telling me about their challenges its a challenge to feel it all and trust that they will find a way. 

love

Hi Bianca,

It's great to have you a part of the community Heart

My sense is you've hit the nail on the head (so to speak). Feeling "guilty" does spike quite strongly in the field. So that would be something to look into. At a soul level, everyone chooses the circumstances they need in which to wake up and evolve - these can be the most challenging thing. It's essential that we don't somehow try to remove the circumstances they've created - but rather hold the space for them to experience what they need to experience.

Emotionally taking on the burden of others, could actually prevent them from waking up - because they don't touch the source of the pain within. The best is to hold the space for them to feel deeply. And, most importantly, to shine your own light - which is hard to do if we're carrying the burden!

There's absolutely nothing wrong with feeling what you're feeling - it's entirely right to be awake and expanded. So I'd say confront the feeling of guilt, explore into it, and work to let it go. Then you'll feel better and actually be able to support in a more aligned and effective way.

Sending love, wishing you well

Hi Bianca,

I just wanted to let you know that I very much resonated with your post about disconnecting as a boundary, the sense of guilt about feeling at peace when people around you are struggling, and the sense of obligation about helping them. It reminded me of one of the sweat lodges during an Openhand retreat, in which I felt absolutely great during the first two rounds (whereas the third round became more challenging and the fourth round was an absolute struggle Slightly Smiling), when several people were already struggling. I remember the sense of guilt and judgement about myself for the joy that I was having in that moment. It makes me realise that in some situations in my life the guilt actually makes me find reasons to turn the peace or joy into more negative feelings, so that I have to feel less guilty. And the feeling of obligation to help also goes hand in hand with trying to reduce the guilt. Moreover, it can actually also work the other way around, that people around me are joyful, but I am  the one struggling and feeling guilty about that as I might be spoiling their fun :). For some reason the word 'sacrifice' comes to mind in relation to this.
