The key to “enlightenment” is in the word “light”. By opening our hearts to deeper and vaster love, we are taking in more light and are then able to shed more light on who we are by accessing our innate wisdom.

The further we journey into our hearts, the more we reveal about our true, authentic selves. The more light we shed on our inner truth, the more we can raise our vibration and live from a place of deeper and higher love.

Attaining the knowledge that we are one with Source means we are no longer powerless bystanders in our lives and can co-create our most fulfilling experience. Imagine if your daily life could be in flow and miracles appeared where you thought none were possible.

"Alchemy" and The Philosopher’s Stone

The ancient science of “Alchemy” is a process of transmutation, whereby an original substance is separated into its greater and lesser elements. Both elements are purified and reunified into a more refined substance. The process is repeated until the greater absorbs the lesser and the purification of the original substance is complete.

It is said that Alchemists were once able to transform lead into gold this way. And the Philosopher’s Stone was the key ingredient which was needed to perform this function.

In terms of Alchemy as a spiritual process, the Archangels want to help us to purify our lower or human self, so that it can be reunited with our higher or divine self. It is only our human programming—with all its hurts, traumas, judgements and misconceptions— which prevents us from living our highest potential.

In this case, the Philosopher’s Stone is the essence of our own soul, which is unconditional love. If we embrace our hardships, misunderstandings, issues and blocks with more and more love, and do it repeatedly, we move ever closer to the goal of oneness via enlightenment. And, therefore, we move closer to achieving lasting harmony and peace for ourselves, each other and our planet.

Expanding our Consciousness

Holding unconditional love in our hearts means looking at our circumstances without judgement and this brings about a powerful feeling of acceptance. Acceptance for the way things are—whether good or bad, joyful or sad—sets in motion the ability to surrender all those parts that are not serving us or working for our greater good. And this, in turn, creates more space for gratitude to flow into our lives.

Feeling gratitude for all that we have–however small–and all that we are then paves the way for miracles to come flooding in. By simply changing our perception of the circumstances around us, we can change our whole life for the better. It is a conscious choice. See your life as perfect now and that is how it shall be.

That is not to say that we must sweep our challenges and hardships under the carpet and ignore them. Rather, the angels encourage us to bring our shadow out to play and love even the darkest parts of ourselves, so we can heal and re-integrate those aspects of the self that we may have previously denied or separated from.

Love Without Judgement

Oneness is wholeness and no part can be left out in the cold. For that is what unconditional love is—purely and simply, it is love without judgement. When we can love ourselves wholeheartedly without judgement or fear, then we shall know freedom.

We each have the power within us to create Heaven on Earth. It is not some fantastical place we fly off to after we die (but do we ever really die anyway?). I believe we are not only able to create Heaven here and now, but that we are meant to. It is our ultimate goal and it is also what we already are—we have just forgotten this and need a little help to remember that we are actually magnificent beings of divine and limitless potential with the ability to create whatever we want right here and now at our fingertips.

Humanity Is Undergoing An Evolution

We are growing in our awareness of our surroundings and our reality. Much in the way a child’s whole world initially consists of their home and family. And then as the child grows, they are sent to nursery and then school, perhaps university. And then, as they reach adulthood, they might move to another town or explore their country and then even begin to travel abroad.

So the child’s awareness of the world has broadened or expanded and, therefore, their reality has also expanded. They become aware of other people, other cultures, different foods, customs and ways of being—another way of looking at it is that they have begun to experience different ways of existing. That is what we are now doing as a collective—albeit on a much broader scale.

Reaching the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not just a dream, or even a mere possibility... It is our birthright. So take a deep breath, allow the clouds to part and step boldly on to the rainbow bridge. Heaven awaits...
