Women have used their creativity as alchemy of manifestation for centuries. This article shows you how to awaken this ancient female art to quicken the Law of Attraction.
You have received the beautiful seed of your dream into your womb and your heart. There it lies, pulsating, like a baby, inside you. How do you bring it into term? You feed and protect it, as you would a baby, of course. But how do you bring it from your inner world of thoughts, desires and imagination into physical reality?
You birth your dream into life through the alchemical use of arts and crafts. This involves three elements:
· Arts and crafts
Let’s look at each of these elements and at how they combine to bring your dream into the world.
Arts and Crafts
When you take your desire or idea and create a work of art or craft that embodies this dream, you use your five senses to transform
This is the remarkable power of art to help you birth your dream.
Let’s say that your dream is to find your soulmate. You like to do collages, so you use the craft of collage-making to create a vision board of your life with your soulmate.
You search for photos of men that look like the man you envision and paste them on the board. You search for photos of couples doing things you want to do with your soulmate. Let’s say that you want to be able to walk among the trees with your beloved. You paste images of trees and a couple walking beneath them. Perhaps you want to share good food, cooking or eating out. You place photos of colorful, tasty recipes and a couple happily eating together. You may place photos of the house you want to inhabit with your soulmate on the vision board. As the vision board takes form, you are using all your senses to bring your dream to life.
Before you started your vision board, your dream was ethereal. It could not be sensed physically. Thus, it stayed in your inner world. Now, however, it can be comprehended by your physical senses.
As a result, your dream has become physical, even before it becomes an actual event!
To create a work of art is a powerful way of attracting what you want. Women, however, have for centuries used art within a matrix that enhances its power. This matrix is ceremony.
A ceremony is a specific creative process that provides structure, rituals and tools to harness your energy and focus your intent for the gestation of a new reality.
When you structure the creation of your vision board within a ceremonial matrix, you build a structure, like a womb, that brings it to term.
Time is a key element in creating this matrix. You set aside a time-frame for shifting your situation; seven days or nine weeks, for example. This establishes a gestation period for your dream.
Rituals are also an essential ingredient in ceremonies. Rituals are metaphorical acts that change the texture of your reality and hash the process of change.
In your vision board ceremony, you can create certain rituals, such as start-up, gathering, development and closure.
you may start every day with meditation to set up the correct mood. You may follow by gathering pictures, textures or making drawings as you intuitively pick up the images that express your desired life with your soulmate.
Once you are ready, you may paste one section per day. Each section of the vision board may refer to a specific area of the life you desire ~like intimacy, activities, sex, social sharing, food, emotional support, home, sharing a purpose.
You may then end each session by contemplating your vision board while you hear or play music.
These starting, gathering, developing and closing rituals are the patterns your psychic needles follow to weave your dream into your consciousness and into the physical world.
Music, images, meditation and collage-making are powerful tools for ceremony. Other tools may include herbs, massage, acupuncture, cleansing smudges, aromatherapy, candles, mantras and affirmations.
Less known tools are Healing Metaphors, such as dreams, signs and visions. Alchemical Mediums are also powerful tools. Organic energy from water, herbs, soil, fire, eggs, potatoes, feathers and potions have a direct impact in your Energy Field, psyche and cellular patterns. For centuries, women have used these tools. They have passed on these tools from one generation to the other.
You may remember that your grandma used potatoes on injured body parts to absorb the black and blues and lesions. You may use herbal scrubs, smudging or water to cleanse yourself and your home. When I was beginning my training as a shaman, I intuitively took an egg and passed it over a part of my body. When I cracked it, the yolk had turned into blood. This alchemical knowledge is in your unconscious, ready to be of service if you open your mind.
At this point, there is just one ingredient missing in your birthing ritual: alchemy. Consider this the midwife to your DreamBirth.
Alchemy is the catalytic process that allows you to transmute one state or substance into another. Like the ancient alchemists who work to transmute lead into gold, you will transmute absence and aloneness into the physical presence of your soulmate in your life.
Just as you are in the universe, the universe is in you. By holding this conscious knowledge and focused intention during the creation of your vision board, you fuse the universe in you with the universe around you, bringing your inner vision into the outer world.
If this still sounds strange to you, think about the ceremonies you now use for transformation. One common ceremony in women is clearance. You want to leave a relationship or job. You go home, and begin to throw away everything connected to that person or situation. You throw out piles of paper, sweep like a maniac and use water by the buckets. When you are finished, you feel that you are in a different place, and you have cut-off the attachments to that old reality.
As a direct result of your Alchemical Art creation, you may begin to see new life options that were invisible to you before. You may notice or feel attracted to a new type of man. You may also attract new men into your life. Before you know it, you will be in the arms of your beloved.
Alchemical Art, like cooking, is familiar to you. You may have learned to distrust it through the fear-mongering tales of witchcraft that socialized women out of spiritual power.
Perhaps you are scared of that power because you still hold the memory of the witch hunts through which wise women and healers were disposed of property and means.
Today, modern science and alternative spirituality have opened the path for you to reclaim the power of art, ceremony and alchemy. Bring it back into your life. It is organic to you as a woman and it works!
Light and Love,
The Dream Alchemist
