The Art the Alchemy of Divine Creativity
Alchemy is the process of transformation. Do you believe in the possibility of change or transformation? If you have a desire change then perhaps you would like to try this process. I have used this process numerous of times in my life with great success. You can print out this painting, it has the copy write on it, and so this is only for your personal use and not to be used on the internet in any way unless I give you permission.
As the ancient Alchemist believed and Carl Jung believed, we can use Alchemy to change. We know that fire and water do not mix and therefore if we suspend our beliefs to allow this magic of alchemy, of transformation to occur within us when are asking the ego to step aside and allow consciousness to be brought about.
One of my favorite books is “The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. In the book our hero is awakened to the concept of paying attention to the signs and symbols of our life. In his journey, he listens, he sees and he follows these signs and in doing that transforms his life.
This painting is the Goddess Dewi Saraswati. She is the creator of beauty, of writing, of art. On her chest are the alchemical symbols the square for the earth plane or the material world and the triangle represents humanity connected to the divine source. This is the tension of opposites, the new is created, one plus two equals three, the three represents the new, what is birthed.
Cups: Here the symbols of mixing the alchemical elements and finding the right combination to perform the creative act of transformation. The cups are in motion and going with the flow. The Cups in the Tarot represent the emotional energies. Cups also represent the feminine, the cauldron of life, the womb. Water: the stream is flowing, go with the flow. Refreshing and rejuvenating. The lush and beautiful Balinese landscape: bountiful, fruitful, beauty, green healing for the physical body. There are more symbols in this painting, stay tuned for the companion book to accompany the deck. I am in this process of writing it now and doing what I am suggesting below, as my desire is to have the deck published.
I would suggest that you try this process, meditate and contemplate on the imagery of this Tarot Card, it is commonly known as “Temperance” in many Tarot decks, known in my Bali Tarot deck and others as “ART”, which stands for the Alchemy of the Divine and the Alchemy of the Art of creation. We often want something to happen and we have no idea on how to attract the power of our desires. We want to create and we need to believe in the possibility that it will happen. It can and with a disciplined mind, connecting to the source, your higher power to establish an inner dialog you can manifest your desires. By focusing, visualizing, speaking words of power, instead of negative thoughts toward self and others, words that affirm your right to change. We can then move into the realm of the Alchemist the process of transforming our lives. With clear intentions set and a new focus of energy toward your goals which can be done all through the day you can manifest your desired outcome. We can change our mind, our bodies and our spiritual life. We are co-creators. We know that fire and water do not mix and therefore we must suspend our beliefs to allow this magic of alchemy, of transformation to occur within us as we are asking the ego to step aside and allow consciousness to be brought about. The true symbolism of the card is asking us are we ready to bring forth a new creation? We can now believe that our soul can be transformed and is ready for a new creation. A Tarot reading can help you determine what you’re true desires are, how to change, tools to use to transform and bring about a desired outcome. A reading can reveal, discover and uncover, it will confirm your thoughts, and it will offer you Spiritual guidance, self-discovery and self-empowerment to create change.
