Why call this blog Daily Alchemy? The quick answer is Daily Magic was taken, but I’m kind of glad it was. I like alchemy and the 18th century vibe I get from the word.
Dictionary definition of Alchemy: There are many different types of Alchemy, but most people are familiar with the definition: the art of turning lead into gold. Alchemists did experiments hoping for magical results. They wanted to make precious metals, gems, and create eternal youth. I enjoy reading books about alchemy, both fiction and non-fiction. Some of my favorite fiction books are: Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, The Alchemist and The Alchemist:The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. If you are interested in the real alchemy, this is a great site.
My definition of Alchemy: I’m no expert at real alchemy and that’s not what this blog is about.. My goal is to enjoy my life and help other’s enjoy theirs. I’ve experimented with positive thought process for over 20 years and would like to share some ways to turn the lead in our lives into gold and learn more techniques along the way. Hopefully, we’ll all have more richness in our lives as a result. You don’t need a laboratory to try my alchemical experiments, mostly just your brain. I am a member of the Unity church, but these experiments work for people of any religion or no religion. Here’s one of my favorite techniques:
The Magic Bubble
How to Make a Magic Bubble:
Find a quiet place to sit or lie down. If you are out and about, you can even hide in a restroom. Close your eyes. Picture a beautiful, white light entering the top of your head and slowly filling up your whole body. I call the white light God’s love, but you could call it universal love or whatever sounds good to you. As this light fills up you body, imagine it relaxing you and taking away any stress you may are feeling and replacing it with love. Once you whole body is filled with this white light of love, let it expand out until it makes a bubble all around your body. Then, you can set an intention that no one can enter your bubble unless you wish them there or that this love bubble will stay with you all night or day, depending on your desires.
Why Would You Need a Magic Bubble:
I started doing this with my kids when they were little to help them sleep or to use it if they felt scared. I started using it myself when I was going somewhere that I might feel uncomfortable. I learned as I grew older that a lot of what I thought was social anxiety was actually an ability to feel other people’s feelings, which can be a good thing but not when you don’t want to. I felt a lot of anxiety at sporting events because I was picking up on everyone else’s anxiety about the game. A lot of people have these empathic abilities and many don’t even realize it. If you find that sometimes you feel emotions and you don’t know why, this might be the cause. Try taking the time to surround yourself with a bubble of love and intend to only feel your own feelings and see what happens.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on alchemy, the magic bubble and any empathic experiences you’ve had. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of February. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around February 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner. If you like my Facebook page in the box on the right side, I’ll put your name in twice.
Remember, Eyoälha Baker will be here Friday to tell you more about her Jump for Joy project.
Love and Alchemy,
