“Alchemy is the art of manipulating life, and consciousness in matter, to help it evolve, or to solve problems of inner disharmonies.”
These are the more psychological aspects when relating the Body to Mind. This is to purify the self in balance with the Soul. The absolute goal of being pure is to totally empower the Self. In the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, this is full Illumination. This process of the Spirit or Mind is from ‘Awakening’ up until the full enlightenment of knowledge.

CONJUNCTION: This represents the empowerment of our true selves. It symbolises living within an intuitive state of consciousness; to learn, achieve and acknowledge true enlightenment, any synchronicities, growth of skills, and mastering environments.
