Your Alchemist Shadow
Transforming Positives into Negatives: Your ability to transform also goes the other way. And the shadow Alchemist often transforms positives into negatives. This side of the archetype focusing only on the negatives of people and events.
Mis-Naming: The power of naming may also be misused, to put people down or make them less than what they really are. In this way you have the power to both create and destroy.
Fantasising about Bad Things Happening: You may find yourself fantasising about bad things happening, or focusing purely on the negatives. This stems from the dark side of the Alchemist archetype that secretly relishes chaos and intrigue.
Manipulating: You can be the master manipulator if you want to be, and you know how to get your own way. You may not even notice the subtle ways you do this, and even the best of intentions can have negative consequences.
Your Alchemist Journey
Wounding: The journey of the Alchemist usually begins with some kind of wounding. This may be mental, emotional, or physical, and acts as a catalyst of self development and healing. Once you have healed yourself, you are then able to heal others. Empowering people to heal themselves is one of the primary goals of the Alchemist.
Intuition, Healing & Synchronicity: The Alchemist has a strong intuition, and is able to know the hidden secrets of things. However, it is one thing to ‘know’ something, and quite another to act on it. Once you begin to act on your knowledge, you open the gateway to healing and transformation. Thus begins your journey of becoming wisdom. Look out for synchronicities as signs that you’re on the right path.
Joining a Fellowship: The Alchemist is a natural loner, and you likely feel happy in your own company. Yet leaps and bounds can be made when you join your powers with others. This may be an informal friendship group, a mastermind, or an online community.
Making Dreams Come True: Your true powers are in making the un-manifest manifest. You have the ability to channel inspiration from the higher realms, into tangible creations on the material plane. Thus you can create whatever your heart desires. Have you ever noticed that you always manage to manifest what you set your mind to? This power must be used, and be allowed to flow out into the world. Denying it, or hording it within will lead to energetic blockages.
Mastery of the Self: Your ultimate quest is to understand the Oneness of all things. When you begin to see the true nature of the universe, you will be able to use your mind to effect change in the outer world.
Ways to Grow
Ask for what You Desire: Desire is the first step of manifestation. The rookie Alchemist will create things unconsciously. But to gain control of this you simply need to ask for what you desire. When it arrives, receive it gracefully and with gratitude. Your powers depend on you humility, knowing that t comes not from yourself, but a higher source.
Use Ritual: Rituals help us to mark a commitment to something. They can be simple or elaborate, and are used to align oneself with higher powers. In this way, they connect with others, and Source; and act as a channel for transformation. The everyday rituals of meditation and prayer also helps keep you grounded, reducing the mental white noise so that your magic can flow.
Join a Fellowship: When you join with a group of other like minded people, it amplifies your collective learning and power.
