The High Priestess Emerald Tolemac 

Here we see Merlin’s wife Gwendolyn (also known by several other names). Some of those names are Nimue, Vivianne and Ninianne. In our version of The High Priestess Emerald Tolemac card, she is Gwendolyn.

The overriding theme of the High Priestess card is the connection between opposites: exoteric and esoteric and matter and spirit. If this card appears in your spread, it’s time to gain clarity and shift your emphasis from what is seen, to what is unseen. It’s time to use your intuition and access the deep recesses of your subconscious mind, for therein lies an abundance of knowledge waiting to be transmuted to wisdom. Continue Reading

Because we have a living essence, we still have a spark of the Christ consciousness in us, no matter how dark or egoistic we become. Our Higher Self is in us, because we still have a connection with the Divinity of the force of the Higher Self. However, this force is only in us to a certain point, a very small percentage relative to the amount of consciousness that we have set free of the ego. Continue Reading

Know Thyself. This is the very first requirement if you would like to become an alchemist. So then, is it dangerous to practice transmutation without knowing who you are? Well that is a very interesting question. One can practice transmutation and not look inward at themselves (which is usually done through meditation) and certain results will occur. To transmute means to harness a force and change it. ‘Trans–’ is the basic prefix of the word, which indicates ‘from one thing to another,’ and ‘mutate’ means ‘change into a different form.’ To transmute is The Alchemy of The Magician.

Will Consciousness Intuition

What are the differences between will, consciousness, and intuition? In their heart, they are the same. In their essence, they are the same. Consciousness is a continuum of infinite energy. That is consciousness. But in us it is not continuous – we are paying attention one minute and we are totally asleep the next. Continue Reading
