During these unique and challenging times, many feel that it’s selfish to be focusing on success.

But think about it for a minute. Is it really?

If you look at success as the dictionary definition — “The attainment of money, fame, material possessions, or power”– then yes, this might not be the time to just focus on those types of goals.

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

But I think you and I would agree that in today’s world, that dictionary definition of success is as outdated as the BlackBerry at the bottom of your junk drawer.

Our society has begun to redefine success and for most, it’s no longer about just money or fame or outer achievement but must include contribution and inner fulfillment.

My dear friend, Debra Poneman is an international success expert and mentor to some of the most renowned transformational teachers of our time. In her acclaimed e-book The 5 Secrets to a Life of True Success, she offers a new paradigm of success and the simple steps to live it.

In her ebook Debra suggests (and research confirms) that the reason the old paradigm of success so often leads people to despair is the expectation that attaining goals will lead to fulfillment.

Although Debra is in no way averse to setting goals and making plans to achieve them, she believes that there’s an important component missing from that approach. In her ebook, she shares spiritual and energetic practices we can use to first create an unshakeable foundation on which to build our outer success. Then, whether or not we reach our goals, our self-love and inner silence never diminishes.

She also gives us tools and techniques to live our dharma as well as heart-warming, real-life stories that illustrate how engaging in sacred activism and opening to receiving love makes the manifestation of outer desires become effortless.

We particularly love the story about what the great spiritual teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi told Debra when she asked him why everyone else loved him more than she did.

Tens of thousands of people all over the world have used the formula Debra shares in her e-book to create lives of ultimate success.

“I’d become immune to e-books and their promises of changing my life, but I heard you on a podcast and loved what you had to say so I thought I’d just take a glance at your book. I just finished it and I am in tears. My heart has been burst wide open by the stories you share (especially the one about your son) and I am completely committed to following your steps to true and lasting success.” ~ Carolyn D., Chicago

“I read every word of your book and it was breathtaking!! Truly amazing. I’m inspired and filled with a sense of awe. It’s very clearly not just a thrown-together loss leader like so many. This is the best ebook I’ve ever read. And The New Success is definitely an idea whose time has come.” 
~ Shelly Lefkoe, Founder of the Lefkoe Institute

“Of all the teachers we have access to in our on-line world, one extraordinary woman stands out amongst the crowd. Master mentor Debra Poneman leads the way to continual inspiration. I’ve seen first-hand how the depth of her knowledge, the wealth of her wisdom, the vastness of her love, the breadth of her humor, and the contagiousness of her joy can and will inspire you to say YES to a life beyond what you can even now imagine. From the truest place in my heart, I encourage you to take advantage of anything she offers, including her profoundly life-changing ebook. Your life will never be the same.”
~ Katherine Woodward Thomas, NY Times Bestselling Author, Conscious Uncoupling and Calling in the One

“Over 30 years ago I first attended Debra’s Yes to Success seminar. I was completely blown away by her unique vision and practical tools for how every one of us can live our most cherished dreams — and by her powerful presence and radiant spirit. I ended up attending the seminar so many more times that I lost count and each time I gained new insights that impacted my life and allowed me to formulate The Passion Test. And now she’s taken the essence and put it in this e-book. What an incredible gift.”
~ Janet Attwood, Co-author NY Times Bestseller The Passion Test

The world needs you to live true success now so that you can have peace and happiness in your soul and BE the contribution you long to be. Debra’s beautiful e-book shows you how.

Debra Poneman Webinar Graphic - Debra on a Blue Background - Awakening Alchemy

When my dear friend and renowned success expert, Debra Poneman, made the decision to offer a training on how to live your ultimately successful life, she was immediately pounced on by many saying, “Is this really the time for you to be teaching people how to create a successful life?!?”

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

Her answer: It depends on your definition of a successful life.

If success were only about the big house and the nice car, I’d agree that it would be insensitive to be teaching that, and not acknowledge that at this juncture in time, even though there’s nothing wrong with a big house and a nice car, we’re being called on to live a different kind of success.

The New Success is one that brings both deep inner joy and the sustained fulfillment and satisfaction you feel when you’re living your purpose for being here–and doing your part to contribute to a world that works for everyone.

That is true success.  And that’s what we all want.

And that’s what Debra is going to show you how to create during her LIVE 90-minute Deep Dive Training on June 16th titled The 5 Pillars to Living Your Ultimate Life.

In 1980 she was a flat broke, full-time meditation teacher.  By 1983 she was teaching success in every corner of the country and had reps teaching around the world.

Now, for almost 40 years Debra has taught tens of thousands of people how to create ultimate success.  Yes, her students have become millionaires, billionaires and even household names but she has always taught how to live the kind of success where…

~You wake up in the morning with fire in your belly and excitement in your heart about what you’re going to create today

~You’re guided at every moment by an inner voice as to how you can make a difference and be a contribution to making the world a more just and loving place

~You harness the power of the Universe so your life is in a much more effortless flow and the wind is always at your back

~You have absolute clarity about when to stay the course and when to let go and surrender to make way for your greater good

~You know how to spontaneously tap Into the Universal flow of grace for effortless manifestation of all your dreams

~ You experience deep unshakeable inner silence so that you can be an immovable lighthouse even in the midst of chaos.

And most importantly, when you look in the mirror, you love the person who’s looking back at you.

Yes!  Give me access to Debra’s FREE Deep-Dive Training:  The 5 Pillars for Your Ultimate Life

In this extraordinary Free Online LIVE ZOOM event, Debra will also take you through a powerful process that her students say has been indispensable in creating their ultimate lives.  She will also share:

~What the Ancient Mystical Texts say you need to do to face and overcome life’s biggest challenges

~How her daughter allowed her to see how much she really judges

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening AlchemyYou’ll also hear a powerful story about a woman who left her exploding career and trajectory to superstardom to follow her heart (giving up, among other things, a contract for her own national TV show).  Everyone said she had gone out of her mind — and perhaps she had — you decide when you hear the story….

If you’re ready to live a life of true and lasting success with all the spiritual and material prosperity your heart yearns for, you’ll want to join Debra this Tuesday for The 5 Pillars to Your Ultimate Life.

Debra’s students include some of the most recognized names in the world of transformational leadership who attribute their monumental success to the practices she will be sharing in this webinar.  I guarantee you will experience a powerful life shift from joining her for this 90-minute interactive event.

Till Next Time, I’m Sending: Love, Phire, and the Violet Flame of Peace

Jill Hughes

P.S. During this Live Training, Debra will also open up the lines for live Q&A and laser coaching!  Bring your most pressing questions about creating true success and living your ultimate life.  Yes! I’d like to join you for this powerful LIVE Video event.

Continuing on with this fantastic series of FREE offers from the amazing Debra Poneman:

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner If you look in the dictionary for the definition of “success,” you’ll always find some variation on “the attainment of money, material possessions, fame or power.”

You and I both know that in the world we live in today, that definition of “success” is as outdated as the BlackBerry at the bottom of your junk drawer.

Our society has begun to redefine success and for most, it no longer has to do with money or fame or outer achievement.

Arianna Huffington said, in her 2016 book Thrive, that after interviewing some of the most successful people in the world, she determined that success is defined by what she calls The Third Metric, a measurement that goes beyond money and power and instead measures success by a deep sense of well-being, wisdom, true happiness, wonder, and of course, giving.

The great poet laureate, Maya Angelou who recently passed away at the age of 86 said this about success: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

I love each of these definitions and I agree that they all express essential components of living a successful life and I also love what my friend Debra Poneman says about success…

Debra Poneman Speaking at a Lecturn: All White Suit - Awakening AlchemyFor more than 40 years, Debra has helped people throughout the world uncover what true success is for them. Her students, from over 100 countries, have gone on to become mega-successful entrepreneurs, champions for charitable causes, powerful world-changers, New York Times best-selling authors, millionaires, billionaires—even household names.

But Debra says that true success is no longer based on outer achievement but on inner fulfillment. Success is about doing what lights you up. It’s about living aligned with your highest truth. It’s about contribution and what you are doing for the world.

And most importantly, it’s about being able to look in the mirror and love the person looking back at you.

For that kind of success, she says, you must first heal your heart. She tells you exactly how to do that in this powerful video.

Please give me access Debra’s FREE video Healing Your Heart

In this extraordinary video, Debra takes us through a powerful direct healing process and also shares:

  • The story of a woman whose husband and only son were murdered and how she was able to forgive the man who killed them
  • A technique to create an opening in your own heart so that all you desire (including profound love) can come through the door
  • The story of another woman who healed her relationship with her deceased father (after doing the process that Debra will lead us through)
  • What true success really is and how you can live it every day of your life

Debra also tells how, once she was able to live true success on the inside, she also effortlessly manifested a beautiful home on five acres, a new Mercedes (after years of driving a beat-up, 10-year-old Chevy BelAir her aunt had willed her when she died), and the relationship of her dreams….all by doing the opposite of what almost all success gurus tell you to do.

The challenges of life can be overwhelming, but if you think that obtaining something on the outside is going to pull you out of your pain and lead to fulfillment or any feelings of happiness, Debra says, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment…

But if you’re ready to live true success on the inside, overflowing with unconditional love for yourself and others, being a contribution to the planet outer success will become an effortless flow. Let Debra show you how in this important and inspiring video.

Debra Poneman - Free Video 2 - Debra on a Background of Purple Crystals - Awakening Alchemy

Today, we continue on with the series of videos and inspiration from the amazing Debra Poneman.

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

When my dear friend and renowned success expert Debra Poneman was in her 20s, the only job she had ever had was teaching meditation.
When she was about to turn the big 3-0, she realized that “woman does not live by mantra alone” and it was time to “become an adult and have adult things like health insurance, car insurance and, perhaps, even a car to insure.”

So she left the meditation community where she was living and went out to seek her fortune (or at least get out of debt).

Debra Poneman Speaking at a Lecturn: All White Suit - Awakening AlchemyArmed with few marketable skills and driving a beat-up, 10-year-old Chevy BelAir that her aunt willed to her, she began studying the energetic and spiritual principles of creating true success expounded on by the ancient masters of metaphysics and modern “New Thought” gurus.

She diligently put the principles she learned to work, and, within less than a year, she had founded her Yes to Success seminar company. She was soon teaching the seminar to crowds in many major U.S. cities, had reps teaching in 7 countries on 4 continents, was appearing on TV and radio and in print from coast to coast, and had the first world’s first infomercial offering a self-improvement program broadcast in 22 markets.

Some of today’s most recognized names in the world of transformation were her students and attribute their inner and outer success to the principles they learned from Debra.

In her just released video Empower Your Mind, she shares what she (and her students) did to create monumental outer success based on deep inner fulfilment and exactly how you can do the same. She then tells the amazing story of how her near-death experience decades later substantiated the profound truth of what she had been teaching around the world.

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening AlchemyShe also shares a technique from a book written in 1935 and issues a two-day challenge. If you make it through the two days, she guarantees your life will never be the same. (She’s taught this technique to tens of thousands of people over the past 40 years and has seen the life-altering results.)

If you’re ready to have a life where you stop blocking your dreams and instead harness your innate ability to tap into the energy of effortless manifestation and universal flow, then…

SAY YES TO SUCCESS!

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

Do you often wish that you could get your answers to the big questions in life straight from a source that is pretty much always reliable?

A source that you could turn to at any moment that would always steer you in the right direction for your greatest success and spiritual awakening…

A source that would give you answers even when things are tough and there just don’t seem to be answers…

If you are a big YES, then you’ll love this just released video from my dear friend Debra Poneman, founder of Yes to Success Seminars.

It’s called Align With Your Highest Truth, and it is particularly relevant at this time in our lives and in the world.

In this video, Debra gives you the tools to tap into the source of knowledge at will.

She takes you through a process where you have a direct experience that bypasses the rational, filtering mind and allows you to get the answers you’ve been seeking.

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening Alchemy She also tells the story of running into one of her students 35 years after he took her seminar. During the chance meeting, he tells her that he had lost his business, was filing for bankruptcy, his wife had walked out, he had a life-threatening disease, and was severely depressed when he attended the seminar in the mid-80s and by doing this one exercise (the one Debra takes you through), it was revealed to him what was “off” in his life and what he needed to shift. The resulting experience blew Debra’s mind–or as she says in the video, “You could have knocked me over with a feather.”

Debra Poneman Banner: Photo of Debras plus two people jumping for joy sillhoueted in a sunset - Awakening Alchemy

Over the next week or so, I will be bringing you news of an exciting, new offer from the world-acclaimed coach and motivator, Debra Poneman.

Who is Debra Poneman, I hear you ask and why should I be interested in anything she has to say?

That’s what I’m here for, so without further ado, I ask you the following question:

ARE YOU READY TO SAY YES TO SUCCESS!?

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening AlchemyI want to take this opportunity to introduce you to someone very special – a recognised leader in the world of self-help and the originator of the stunning SAY YES TO SUCCESS program which is designed to allow YOU to achieve everything you are capable of and that YOU DESERVE.

I’ll be talking quite a lot about Debra and her amazing program over the next few days,  so I thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce Debra to you and to give you a little teaser about Debra and her program.

What better way to achieve this than through a short question and answer session that will give you an insight into the woman and her work. So, here we go:

Q: Who is Debra Poneman?

A: Debra Poneman and is a pioneer in the New Thought movement and a woman who embodies her own teachings. Debra spent a decade in the 70’s living in India and Europe, spending months at the time in complete silence and deep meditation, while studying with some of the greatest masters of the East. During her time back in the United States she taught meditation to thousands of people.

Q: What did Debra Poneman discover?

Debra Poneman Speaking at a Lecturn: All White Suit - Awakening Alchemy A: In the early 1980s Debra happened upon the principle of how your thoughts create your own reality. Fascinated, she began studying the works of great masters of Western esoteric thought who espoused the now popular principle called the Law of Attraction. The people she studied included Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles and Florence Shinn. Discovering the Law of Attraction was just a small fraction of the profound knowledge these masters possessed and realising that this knowledge could help people move to the next level of their own life mastery she translated their works into modern language and founded her own seminar company Yes to Success Inc.

Q: What makes Debra Poneman different from other top Self- Help leaders?

A: Fame and success did not hold sway; her principles meant she walked away. Within a few short years, Debra’s seminars were being taught in dozens of US cities and in seven countries around the world. Among her clients were Fortune 500 companies, and among her students were people who, using the principles they learned from Debra, went on to become New York-based times selling authors such as Marcia Shimoff and Janet Atwood, and world renowned trainers like Steve Barber founder of Extreme Leadership and even household names like Deepak Chopra. In 1988, with a book deal in hand and negotiations underway for her to host her own national TV talk show, true to her teachings, Debra gave it all up when she realised that she had an even greater passion…..

Q: What are Debra Poneman’s Over-riding Passions?

A: Success founded on Compassion, Love and Service to Others. For over 22 years Debra disappeared from the public eye to raise her two children, and now finally she’s back to share what she learned about compassion from her numerous trips doing volunteer work in India, about ego-less service, from the many saints and sages from both East and West whom she has hosted in her home and about overcoming adversity, from her interviews with over 50 top American idols to write her bestselling book Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul, and about unconditional love which she learned from being a mom.

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

Not so long ago Debra moved from L.A. to Chicago; it was tough to leave her friends but she was determined to support her son Daniel in his non-profit [charity] organisation: https://www.shotinthedarkfoundation.org/

Daniel is a sports agent, and the foundation’s mission is to showcase basketball kids from urban communities, to get them seen by college scouts – athletic scholarships are a great way out of the ghettos and to escape poverty, violence and oppression.

These guys know that #Blacklivesmatter and they actively do something to help people help themselves. There’s a short video documentary which Daniel created on Youtube called “Ball so Hard” [Daniel Poneman] and more recently a sports documentary with Fox called “Shot in the Dark” about the lives of two baseball players, their coach and survival on the streets.

Not all of them survive, drugs, crime and shootings are high – one of Daniel’s friends Tyquone Greer who appears in the film and fought so hard to make it in the hugely competitive basketball world, was shot in the leg. Whilst Debra was teaching in Blaine, [see below] Daniel phoned her to say that tragically the young brother of another player had been shot and killed.

In the wake of the tragic death of George Floyd if you are feeling that you’d like to help in some way to make a difference this is a very practical, tangible and effective way to ensure that your donation – however small- really will make a difference. I donated – my daughters’ also- and it will be a gift that won’t be wasted in admin and fat-cat lunches etc. – but will be of direct benefit. There’s a Donate tab on the website.

XXX—–Thank you——XXX

Q: When will Debra Poneman be back to share her tremendous insight and inspiration with us?

A: Soon – she will be launching an incredible new online course to help you say Yes to Success. I met Debra in Blaine, Washington State attending her four-day Spiritual Activist retreat. She is truly the real deal, and practices what she preaches, which is hugely important to me as I would never recommend anyone who does not walk their talk. Debra is an outstanding caring and compassionate individual and unlike some online courses hers will represent exceptional value for the cutting-edge practices to help you absolutely raise your game and win in a holistic and inspiring way!

Self-Love and New Thought = Awakening Alchemy

What is the tie-in between self-love and “new thought”?

We now know what self-love is all about, so perhaps we better define “new thought” a bit more.

Self-Talk & Creativity - Awakening Alchemy New thought was a philosophy that began in the early mid-nineteenth century that postulated the idea of “healthy mindedness” as well as a healthy body. It was a spiritual movement with its roots in metaphysical beliefs. It grew out of existing Christian beliefs, especially those of a Calvinist origin. New thought’s basic premise was; “that anything that exists in the mind and could be expressed through words had the ability to transcend the physical and be realized through individual thoughts and intuition.”

Many philosophers and thinkers of the time latched onto “new thought” as expressing their belief in the universality of humanity and whilst still accepting a higher power, they attributed that higher power to the Universe rather than some arbitrary human construct, such as God, Yaweh, Allah, or whatever it might be.

Perhaps, for most of us today, “new thought” only came to the forefront of our consciousness in 2006 with the world-wide streaming of Rhonda Byrne’s movie and later book, “The Secret”. It was at this time the idea of the Law of Attraction and New Thought actually swept across the world. Rhonda would be the first to admit that her movie was espousing nothing new, but rather sharing the “secret” that she had discovered from reading a one-hundred-year-old book by Wallace Wattles, titled, The Science of Getting Rich. So, although Rhonda’s epiphany may have seemed startling, exciting, and new to a whole new generation of adherents, the basic principles that made up the new thought philosophy had been around and discussed for many years.

Joseph Campbell:          

New Thought Author Joseph Campbell - Awakening Alchemy One adherent to the new thought philosophy was Joseph Campbell. An American author and editor who lived from 1904 to 1987, Joseph Campbell is best known for his works on comparative mythologies across the world. He examined the universal functions and impacts of myths in various cultures and mythical figures across a wide range of different literature from all over the world.

For me, however, it was his pronouncements and quotes that have the greatest effect and inspiration. We talked last week about the greatest way to love yourself is to find your true path in life – that which you were gifted; those unique and special talents that we’ve been talking about. Joseph Campbell’s simple quote, for me, sums up perfectly what we need to do, as individuals, if we are to achieve the self-realization, self-actualization and self-love that we both seek and deserve.

“Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors where there were only walls.”

Joseph Campbell

Such a simple phrase – “follow your bliss” but one that is guaranteed to put you where you (a) want to be and (b) where you belong.

Follow Your Bliss:

What is bliss?

Follow Your Bliss - Awakening Alchemy Bliss is a concept that almost defies description. It is vast, boundless, immeasurable AND it is a totally different state, for every single person and that is the key. Bliss must be personally experienced to understand what it is for YOU. Bliss exists on an entirely different dimension to simple happiness – it is so much more than that. It is a state where the sense of ego slips away and a feeling of total connectedness takes over. When you are in a state of bliss there is no sense of “me”, separate from the rest of creation – there is just joy and peace.

Perhaps the best definition I’ve heard of bliss is doing something where time, the environment, and everything around you fades away into the background and only the thing you are currently focused on matters anymore. This is the way I feel when I’m writing these blogs, or my novels, so, for me, a state of bliss is attained when I am writing. For everyone it will be different and you need to focus on what gives you bliss and then find a way to relate that to today’s environment and a way to “follow your bliss” that also rewards you financially for doing so. Remember what Richard Branson said about not doing what he did for the money, but for the fun and the challenge. But that when he had fun, invariably the money followed.

If there is one guaranteed way to achieve the self-love and satisfaction that we all seek, that is it.

If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.”

Joseph Campbell

Simply put, if you do things that you are passionate about, you’ll feel more alive and doors will open for you.

New Thought and Self-Talk:

Be Kind to Yourself - Awakening Alchemy We’ve talked a lot in the last few blogs about the importance to our well-being of our own self-talk. Regardless of the reasons for us having a low opinion of ourselves, so many of us do and we are continually berating ourselves for not measuring up to either our or others opinions or expectations of us. When we denounce ourselves, we are doing serious harm to our self-esteem and self-worth.

This is particularly cogent when we look at new thought beliefs. One of the core beliefs of this new thought philosophy is expressed in the concept that; “thoughts are things”. One of the best known of the new thought authors is Napoleon Hill and perhaps his most famous quote was:

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”

You Have to Love Yourself - Awakening Alchemy I’m sure that will right now be resonating with readers of this blog. What an inspirational quote – if we act and think positively, with respect to self-love and self-talk, we can create whatever we desire and need. If thoughts are things and we can achieve whatever we conceive and believe in, if we don’t believe in ourselves, we will create exactly what we believe in and constantly tell ourselves – that we are hopeless, we are a failure, we can’t do anything right, or what’s the point in even trying if we’re just going to mess it up?

That, in a nutshell is why positive self-talk and believing in ourselves and our unique abilities is so important. If we don’t – we are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy through the Law of Attraction. Remember the mirror exercise from recent blogs. We really need to practice that – we need to be able to look in the mirror and say; “I am an awesome human being, I can achieve anything I set my mind to, I am capable, I am special, I am unique, I am… (fill in the blank).

Give Yourself Praise - Awakening Alchemy There are so many people in this world today who are quick to try to bring you down, to scoff at your achievements and to belittle you or even withhold applause or praise. Congratulations, and celebrations are so important – always look for things to appreciate in yourself and give yourself a big pat on the back and a high five whenever you make constructive progress or take positive action. Self-love is also about moving away from lower [on an energetic sphere] feelings / emotions such as shame – guilt – anger – judgement and so on, and raising your vibration, instead.

We hope you’ll review this series from time to time and deploy some of the tips on a regular basis. It is your duty to yourself to remind yourself that you are better than all of that, that you are special and unique, that you are wonderful. If you don’t believe it, how can you expect anyone else to believe it?

I hope you have realized over these last four blogs why self-love, self-care, self-awareness is so important to us, as human beings and what we can do to ensure that we do love ourselves properly and look after ourselves so that we are able to utilize those special and unique talents that make us who we are. I want to leave you today, with a special quote that neatly sums up everything we’ve been discussing over these last four weeks.

“You can’t hate yourself happy. You can’t criticize yourself thin. You can’t shame yourself worthy. Real change begins with self-love and self-care.”

– Jessica Ortner

Mystery, Magic and Supernatural; Spirit of Prophecy - Awakening Alchemy

Till Next Time I’m Sending: Peace and Light

 

The Lost City of Atlantis - Awakening Alchemy

As discussed in previous blogs almost all modern medicines we use today had their origins in the flora and fauna used by our forebears to “cure what ailed them”. This is equally true of crystals – which have been used as a healing and wellbeing tool for millennia. Today, I’d like to take you on a quick tour of those ancient civilizations and look at what crystals meant to them. As an avid history buff, I am a firm believer of how much we can learn from our ancestors and when it comes to crystals, the answer does appear to be – quite a lot!

Ancient Civilizations:    

As long as man has stood upright, crystals and gemstones have truly fascinated them and there has been a deep attraction to these beautiful stones as well as being seen as a way of warding off evil and protecting the wearer from danger and illness. It is impossible to determine exactly what, when and how, man first began using crystals and gemstones, but archaeologists have found talismans and amulets that date back to the earliest recorded human history. Carved Woolly Mammoth Ivory Beads have been excavated from a grave site in Sungir, Russia and date back some 60,000 years (Upper Paleolithic Period). Included in these graves were also beads made from shells and fossilized shark’s teeth.

The oldest recorded amulets found to date, can be dated back some 30,000 years. Amber beads have been discovered in Great Britain from over 10,000 years ago, right at the end of the last ice-age. If we consider the immense distances early man had to travel to reach Great Britain at that time, we start to gain some perspective into the importance of these gems to them, that they brought them with them on their travels. A popular stone for early man was Jet and jet beads, bracelets and necklaces have been uncovered in Paleolithic gravesites in Switzerland and Belgium.

New Grange Tombs in Ireland - Awakening Alchemy

New Grange Tombs – Ireland

When we consider that early man has been mining such substances as Malachite, in the Sinai, since 4,000BCE we begin to see the importance of these minerals to the early nomads of earth. Jade has been mined in China since the Stone Age (Between 8700BCE and 2000BCE). Also, NewGrange, a prehistoric monument in Ireland, built around 3200BCE and predating Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids, was constructed of white quartz cobblestones.

Even the fabled lost ancient civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria were said to be reliant on the power of crystals. The Atlanteans, in particular were said to have used the power of the crystals to create forcefields around their world to defend themselves from enemies, however it was the misuse of this power that is said to have destroyed the world of Atlantis and sent it plunging beneath the ocean.

We find the first written reference to crystal use, in the writings from Ancient Sumer, (Modern Day, ancient Southern Iraq, later known as Mesopotamia). The Sumerians used crystals in their concoctions of “magic formulas”.

Egyptians:

An Egyptian Pharoah Being Crowned - Awakening AlchemyThe Ancient Egyptians were noted for their extensive crystal use. They used turquoise, carnelian, emeralds, lapis lazuli and clear quartz in their jewellery. In addition to this their funerary amulets were also made from these same gems. Crystals were used by the Egyptians for protection and health. For example, Chrysolite (known as topaz and perodite) were used as a deterrent to nightmares and to ward off evil spirits.

The Egyptians also liked to use crystals as part of their “makeup” regime. Galena (Lead Ore) was ground into a powder (known as Kohl) and used to shade Egyptians eyes. Powdered Rose Quartz was believed to prevent wrinkles and was extensively used. Malachite was also used as an eye shadow and any “green” stones which signified the heart of the dead person were included with the mummified body in the burial chamber. They would often place a quartz crystal and other gemstones on the forehead of a deceased family member, believing the energy and spirit of the gems would guide their family member in the afterlife.

Egyptian dancers were big users of crystals placing carnelian and ruby crystals in their navels to enhance their sex appeal, whilst Pharaohs, like Cleopatra, placed crushed Lapis Lazuli on their eyes to enhance awareness. Amethyst was also used to stimulate the “third eye” chakra and aid enlightenment.

Ancient Greeks:   

The Raphael School in Early Athens - Awakening Alchemy Perhaps the Greeks, more than any other civilization brought us the world of crystals as we know it today. They believed crystals were extremely powerful and gave us many of the words we use for crystals, today.

Crystal, in ancient Greek, literally means “ice”. This is because the Greeks believed clear quartz was actually frozen water, so solid that it would never unfreeze.

Amethyst means “not drunken” and was worn as an amulet to prevent drunkenness and hangovers.

Hematite comes from the Greek word for blood, because of its red colour when it oxidises. Because Hematite is an iron ore and the Greeks associated iron with Aries, the God of War, soldiers would rub Hematite all over their bodies before battle to protect themselves.

Greek sailors were known to wear a variety of crystal amulets to protect them from the terrors of sea travel and the many mythical monsters that they believed lived under the oceans.

China:

Ancient Chinese: Horse Riding - Awakening Alchemy The crystal that was most prevalent and important in ancient Chinese culture was undoubtedly, Jade. Jade was highly valued and even some Chinese written characters represent Jade beads. Many musical instruments, in the form of gongs and chimes were made from Jade and Chinese Emperors were often known to be buried in armour made from Jade.

Jade was also recognised as a healing stone by the Chinese. It was believed to be particularly effective for the kidneys and kidney related diseases.

Other Civilisations:

Maori Greenston Koru Pendant from New Zealand - Awakening Alchemy

Maori Koru Pendant

The South, Central and North American Native Peoples (Mayans, Aztecs, Inca’s and Native Americans) all used and valued crystals deeply. They also recognised jade as a kidney healing stone as well as using it for funeral masks. The Inca people believed that Rhodochrosite contained the blood of their dead ancestors and the Aztecs made their weapons from Obsidian.

In the South Pacific, Jade (or Greenstone, as it is known in New Zealand) is sacred to the local culture. Maori make greenstone pendants which represent the spirits of their ancestors and pass these down the male lineage, through the generations, considering them to be bearers of good fortune. It is also used extensively by Pacific peoples in weaponry, such as the pictured “mere”.

Religion and Crystals:

The Multi-Gemed Breastplatye of Aaron - Awakening Alchemy

Breastplate of Aaron

All manner of human religions has, at one time or another, considered crystals to be powerful, sacred and part of their religious practices. Crystals and gemstones are repeatedly mention in the Bible and the Koran. The whole concept of “birthstones” actually traces its origin back to a Biblical text in Exodus and the breastplate of Aaron (The High Priest’s Breastplate.)

The 4th Heaven mentioned in the Koran is composed of carbuncle (Garnet)

In Jainism, the Kalpa Sultra speaks of Harinegamesi, the divine commander of the foot soldiers who seized fourteen precious stones, cleansed them of their lesser qualities and retained only their finest qualities to aid his transformations.

The Kalpa Tree in Hinduism, which represents an offering to the Gods is made entirely of precious stone.

In Buddhism, there was said to be a diamond throne situated near the tree of knowledge, on which Buddha is believed to have reposed. A 6th Century Buddhist treatise ranks all gemstones according to caste, with diamonds being the King of Gemstones.

Modern Day Crystal Healing Roots:

During the Renaissance, in Europe, a number of “medical” treatises emerged promoting the use of precious and semi-precious stones for the treatment of certain ailments. The use of these stones, allied with herbal remedies were said to aid recovery and provide strength and protection to the wearer. During this period, it was decreed that because of “original sin” crystals could be inhabited by demons and therefore they needed to be sanctified and cleansed by the clergy, before wearing.

In the early Seventeenth Century, Thomas Nicols declared in his treatise “Faithful Lapidary” that gems, as inanimate objects, could not possibly possess the healing effects claimed by many and the use of crystals in Europe dropped off dramatically.

The Era of “New Thought” and the Rebirth of Crystal Healing:

An Angel Lights up a Star - Awakening Alchemy The middle of the nineteenth century saw a massive spiritual movement known as “New Thought” take hold across Europe and the Americas. The “New Thought” movement, with its fascination and emphasis on the power of thought, vibration, spiritualism, the occult, and energy movement saw a resurgence in the use of crystals as healing talismans. Many of the practices we see re-emerging right through to the current day owe their roots to the traditional native beliefs we have discussed earlier but rely much more on modern science and the belief that everything is energy and crystals and gemstones, like some other materials are magnificent conductors of energy.

Crystal belief and therapies now cross all religious and cultural boundaries and in many cases are seen as a part of the “holistic” approach to wellbeing. Even many modern doctors incorporate crystals and other holistic methods, such as meditation into their diagnoses and therapies. Many books, such as Healing Crystals, Gemstone Healing and many more by Michael Gienger, as well as popular spiritual magazines have served to bring the concept of crystal healing to a whole new generation.

Although there are many physicians who adopt this “holistic” approach to health and wellbeing, there are many more who openly scoff at the concept. For long periods of the twentieth century the whole idea of natural healing was an anathema to Western Medicine and was actually banned in many countries. Slowly, as science progresses and recognises many of the aspects of “new thought” teaching as being reality, we are seeing a paradigm shift as it applies to health and alternative medicine but still the major pharmaceutical companies (Big Pharma) are vehemently opposed to this movement and would prefer us to douse ourselves in their chemical concoctions, often with disastrous side-effects and addictive qualities (witness the current Opioid crisis in the USA).

Conclusion:

A Piule of Raw Crystals - Awakening Alchemy Ultimately, crystals can only form a part of an overall wellness regime that includes: diet, sleep, exercise, meditation, natural remedies and yes, modern medical care. All these things should work together in harmony to achieve a balanced, healthy, and happy human being.

We hope you have enjoyed our foray into crystals over the past few weeks. We hope, if nothing else, we have opened your thought processes to looking at alternative options for achieving the wealth, health and fulfilling life each of you was born to enjoy – remember what I said a few articles back:

 

IT IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT TO BE HAPPY AND YOU SHOULD ACCEPT NOTHING LESS.

That concludes our series on crystals and next week we will dive into something equally as fascinating, exciting and important – SELF LOVE and no, I’m not talking about narcissism or arrogance here, I’m talking about loving, respecting and believing in yourself as a uniquely talented human being and fellow traveller in this amazing journey of life. You won’t want to miss this series.

A Little Boy Reaches For the Moon: Spirit of Prophecy - Awakening Alchemy

Till Next Time I’m Sending: Peace and Light

 

 

Woman Sitting on a Beautiful Beach Meditating - Awakening Alchemy

Meditation, in its most basic form, has been around for eons. In fact, man, has always, even during his most instinctual struggle for survival, found the time to sit, to question, and to ponder on his innermost thoughts and at its core that is exactly what meditation entails – to focus inward.

Man Sits on a Rock Hiugh in the Mountains Meditating - Awakening Alchemty  Some of the earliest recorded meditation practices come from the Hindu traditions of Vedantism and date to around 1500BCE. Meditation, in all its various forms and practices has become an integral part of many philosophies, religions and ways-of-life, over the millennia. One could argue that the purpose of meditation, as defined by many of these early practitioners, is the concept of “following the path to enlightenment” and “self-realization”. This is certainly the case in the Hindu and Buddhist practices, which we have covered in earlier blogs. Even Christianity, in the Psalms, instructs us to; “be still and know that I am God.” Being still and focusing inwards is and continues to be a vital ingredient of a happy and heart-filled life.

Concentric Ripples in a Sunlit Pool - Awakening Alchemy In today’s frantic-paced world, however, meditation has been seen and used much more as a way of cutting ourselves off from the hectic daily happenings and simply allowing ourselves to find peace and contentment. Some of today’s practitioners, it seems, are more interested in meditation to help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, whilst simultaneously boosting peace, well-being, perception, self-worth and general relaxation. Today, I want to focus particularly on meditation from the perspective of “New Thought” teaching, where it does play a vital role in establishing a degree of control over our thoughts, emotions, and ultimately, our actions.

Within the New Thought philosophy the concept of meditation is extremely important.

Five Excellent Reasons to Meditate:

  1. Meditation assists us to live in the present: Many people flitter through their days in an almost catatonic state, unaware of much that is happening around them. They miss all the amazing beauty that surrounds them as they wander along, their noses buried in their electronic devices or inside their own minds, regretting their past actions or worrying about the future circumstances. We need to be aware of what is happening around us, now, today and meditation is a wonderful key to unlock that awakening in our minds.
  2. Our minds are always working at 100 miles an hour: Our minds are like a never-ending chatterbox, filled with thoughts and mindless noise. This endless chatter ultimately brings us boredom, frustration, and dissatisfaction. Meditation allows us to take control of our minds, to focus inwardly and to experience the wonderful peace and serenity of the silence and stillness within.
  3. A Small Stone Rock Pile: Largest to Smallest - Awakening Alchemy When the mind is under control – amazing things begin to happen: If we can train our mind, through meditation, to be conscious of just one thing, for example our breathing, incredible things begin to happen – the mind becomes malleable, we begin to control our thoughts and the mindless chatter grinds to a halt- [albeit not necessarily for long periods but equally that’s fine.] A new, powerful, and mindful awareness will become part of our day-to-day activities. A peaceful mind is one of the key elements to achieving the happy and heart-felt life I spoke of earlier.
  4. When we have control of our mind, we can then control our emotions and feelings: this is an enormous benefit. Most people have no control over their emotions and feelings – they react to circumstances only. By controlling your emotions and feelings, you can CREATE your own circumstances. Remember, always, that YOU are NOT your mind and YOU are NOT your thoughts. Your mind, your thoughts, and your emotions are merely tools for you to use to create your own reality – not the other way around.
  5. Science has proven that meditation impacts our consciousness in a measurable way: Consciousness Research is still in its infancy and will doubtless provide us with illuminating discoveries in the future but already the study of theta and delta brainwaves has shown the incredible impact meditation can have on our creativity, our memory and even our dreams. The future is exciting.

How Do I Start With Meditation?

There are many misconceptions about meditation. No, you don’t need to get yourself into your yoga pants, bend yourself into the “lotus” position and chant “Ohm…Ohm…Ohm…” endlessly. Once you make the leap into meditation, I have no doubt you will want to know more and want to experience more – and that’s great, but initially you can begin to meditate incredibly simply and even within the confines of your own bed if that’s what you want. Here’s what I would suggest to get yourself started down this amazing and fulfilling road.

  1. Set your alarm clock, so that you wake up 10, 20, 30 minutes earlier than normal (the time depends on you – you will probably extend it once you start to realize the immense benefits).
  2. When you first wake up in the morning, don’t crawl groggily out of bed, check your phone and then stumble to the kitchen to prepare your first coffee of the day.
  3. Instead, sit up in bed, or find a comfortable, quiet place where you won’t be disturbed (especially if you have a partner beside you). It is important that the temperature is comfortable for you – too hot, or too cold, will potentially distract you.
  4. Neon Sign says Breathe - Awakening Alchemy There are as many meditation techniques as there are practitioners, so just do whatever feels comfortable for you. For a beginner, I’d suggest focusing on your breathing. Listen to it going in and out of your lungs, feel the oxygen, from your breath, flowing through your bloodstream, from your brain to the very tips of your toes, and then returning to be re-oxygenated, again, in your lungs. Just spend ten minutes focusing on your breathing. There are also many apps. available that can help you to meditate, or conversely you may want to try repeating a mantra. Remember, there is no right or wrong way, it is whatever works best for you, so do experiment.
  5. There’s a reason it is called “practicing” meditation. It can feel uncomfortable or difficult initially, perhaps even unsuccessful, but DON’T give up, keep trying until you find what works for you. Consistency is the key – before long, missing a meditation session will seem like your day is not right, that something is missing.

There are oodles of information on meditation on the web but if you want some good, solid, information on meditation, you can find it here on my own website, resources page: https://www.moneymagnet.global/resources/

HeartMath – A World First:

Heart Math - Awakening Alchemy

 

“Dare to connect with your heart. You will be lifting not only yourself and those you love and care about, but also the world in which you live.”

Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder

  4. Here’s a simple and handy “how to” video: https://www.mommworld.org/appdownload

To find out more about MOMM visit: https://www.mommworld.org

We hope you’ll join us in this unique opportunity to play an active role in raising global consciousness. And to measure our collective coherence too!

Here’s some more information about how you can get involved in MOMM:

  1. Participate individually in one or both of the UK and Global meditations from wherever you will be at the time. We want you in the masses and we want you to use your Inner Balance with the new Global Coherence app while you meditate so that you can play an active part in our world-first experiment to measure collective coherence!
  2. You could organise your own MOMM. This could be a small group of friends or family in your living room or outdoors. Please register your MOMM (even if it is a private event) here: https://www.mommworld.org/events
  3. Attend one of the many public events happening across the UK (11th May) and Globally (12th May). Check out the list of events here: https://www.mommworld.org/events

At the weekend:

Hundreds of Candles off into the distance - Awakening Alchemy As stated, there are two meditation events. The UK event is Saturday at 12pm British Summer Time. The Global event is Sunday at 3pm BST. Both last up to one hour.

We would love you to join BOTH, but if you can only join one then that’s just fine. The Global one is the most important for the experiment. And if you can’t commit to the full hour, don’t worry – any time you can commit will be wonderful.

Here’s some simple instructions:

  1. Join the meditation at the start time.
  2. Keep your phone/tablet turned on/connected to the mobile network/wi-fi but turn off your ringer and vibrate alert so that you do not get disturbed.
  3. As you join; open the GC app; turn on/connect your Inner Balance if you have one; tap on the MOMM group; join the session.
  4. Enjoy a Heart Focused meditation radiating peace, care and compassion to all peoples.
  5. Continue for up to one hour – but if you don’t have an hour to spare then whatever you can manage will have a positive impact.
  6. Don’t concern yourself if you find it a little hard to connect to the feelings. Focus on your heart/chest and keep breathing coherently (balanced, slowly, deeply but comfortably) and know that your intention towards peace, care and compassion, with or without the feeling, is important.

So, there we have it, a brief overview of meditation and its benefits. I do hope you’ll give it a try and I especially hope that you’ll check out the HeartMath experiment and let’s all make a world of difference in the furtherance of global peace – together we are powerful!

Having recently been on the Extinction Revolution protests in London with my lovely daughters – we did all make a difference – the UK government have declared that Climate Change is an Emergency and have appointed a Committee to reduce emissions to zero! Yi-Ha! Here, HeartMath are experimenting in a mass raising of global consciousness and peace through meditation – It’s Awesome! Please feel free to share it with as many people as you can.

LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE – TOGETHER!
