2nd Key for Awakening – Alchemy

“First we bring together, then we putrefy, we break down what has been putrefied, we purify the divided, we unite the purified and harden it. In this way is One made from man and woman.” – Stein der Weisen, 18th century

Alchemy (in the East known as White Tantra) is a practice used for transmutation of internal energies. At one point in the history, the concept of “alchemy” was very popular among people. Exoterically it means transformation of lead into gold. Many people have tried to unravel the mysterious and obscure sacred writings of old alchemists in order to start making gold and to become rich. However, they didn’t know that the essence of alchemy goes much deeper than purely physical transformation, and that it may change the nature of a human being. Spiritual alchemy is a transformation of lead of the personality into the gold of the spirit.

In secret spiritual lodges of the past, the alchemical work was known as the Great Work, and it was something that enabled a person to find salvation from the bondage and limitation of the physical world and egos. Mozart has dedicate his opera The Magic Flute to this work, where the magic flute used by two main characters is actually the practice of alchemy, which helped both of them to pass through trials and initiations. Generally, a lot of secrecy surrounded this practice in the past. It was given only to those who were ready for it.

Essentially, it is a sexual practice, performed by male and female, a married couple. When the opposite polarities unite, they have the power of creation. With normal sexual intercourse, a couple can create another physical body. But when sex is used in a spiritual way, it is said that a couple can transform their energetic structure, create higher spiritual bodies, as well as eliminate egos.

The practice is done without lust, and it doesn’t end with orgasm. With alchemy, the kundalini rises up the spiritual bodies that are created. Love is a requirement for kundalini to rise. If orgasm is reached, sexual energy (the prime creative force, crucial for the goal of this practice) is wasted, which further strengthens and creates new egos. Orgasms in general are detrimental for spiritual awakening (read this article  for more information).

Man and woman work together to destroy the animal ego

When the united male and female sexual energy is transmuted and conserved, it goes on creating the spiritual within.

The practice can be used for both “birth” and “death” – the birth of the spiritual within and the death of the egos. It is paramount that it is done in conjunction with the other two keys for the awakening, especially the death of the egos. This is because the transmuted energy can be used by both consciousness and the egos. With elimination of the egos from moment to moment, we prevent egos from using this energy, so it goes only to consciousness.

It is a delicate practice, so I am not revealing the full information on how to practice it. It is also an advance practice, that throughout history was given only to a spiritually prepared couple. In this era Samael Aun Weor has explained it for everyone to know, yet still the particulars are explained by a qualified teacher.

A person’s approach to sexuality is a sign of her or his level of evolution. Unevolved persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body’s other organs and systems.  Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged (through orgasm), and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap.” – Lao Tzu

    1. No, the ham sah mantra is for single people subliming teir sexual energy. There is another type of exercise performed during alchemy, related to breathing and visualising. I do not feel I’m at the level yet where I can reveal this practice in fullness, so that’s why I just wrote the basics of it in this article. Belsebuub plans to work on his next esoteric ebook where this practice may be revealed.

      Officially it is stated that the couple must be in serious relationship (married or engaged). However I do know that some serious practicioners were practicing it even before they got engaged.

      1. Thank you for this information! And thank you for sharing this entire blog!
        One thing, if I may: What should I do after eating pork? It was in the family menu today and I am still the only one interested in spirituality (in this way) in my family and I do not wish to argue with them or make them feel uncomfortable. They’re really nice people.
        Thank you!

      2. I know what you mean, it can be hard when it comes to refusing certain food while at the table with family or friends. Though there are many people who have certain diets which can be acceptable by others if one talks to them and explain them the situation. In my case I started noticing certain effects after accidentally eating pork or pork based food additivies. These effects would be more and more prominent as I was progressing with spiritual work. So when I would be/am in such situations I just say that I am reactive to pork. If they ask what kind of reaction, I say I feel heavy feelings in my solar plexus and throughout entire front torso, and it also gives me bad sleep. This is true, and enough information for inquirer to be satisfied with the answer.

  1. Yeah I’m having trouble with masturbation. Started when I was in my teens. Since discovering the spiritual path, I have been trying to stop. But anytime I do there’s this full sensation in my head that’s like an energy overload and I have to masturbate just to be able to think straight again because it causes a lot of confusion and agitation.

    1. Hey Scribe, that confusion and agitation is caused by mental and emotional egos though, because they want their food. They will do anything to get their food. By indulging into lust, the lust is fed. Have you tried the techniques of awareness of the present moment (being in consciousness), and self-observation of five psychological centers, as described in the Gnostic teachings of Samael Aun Weor and Belsebuub?

  2. So is this imlying a human being is never allowed to orgasm in their lifetime once they set their goal of raising the kundalini and wish to ascend the soul beyond reincarnation?

    And what about wet dreams? We have no control over them.

    1. Wet dreams gradually lessen with inner development and with the work on lust. Also, the practice of transmutation/sublimation of sexual energy is important in avoiding wet dreams.
