Red sulfur alchemy

Perhaps one of the greatest mysteries in alchemy has been termed “the quest for the red sulfur” often called “the perfect red king” or “the sulfur of the philosophers”. Medieval alchemists were believed to have searched for the “philosopher’s stone recipe” or the “philosopher’s stone ingredients” in their quest for “alchemical gold” while at times wondering “does the philosopher’s stone exist?” Early alchemical experiments in “the search for the philosopher’s stone” brought up such questions as “how to make red sulfur powder” which was rumored to appear after a “white philosopher’s stone” and known only to illuminated alchemy initiates by a secret “philosopher’s stone symbol”. Alchemy keywords often entailed the green lion of alchemy, the ravens head or ‘black stage”, the “eagles wing”, a peacocks tail, the white stone, and a red incombustible sulfur or “sulfur incombustible” which was said to be the result of an “alchemical wedding” known as ” join the red man to the white wife” which supposedly produced “the supernatural son of the sun”.                 Article written by Steven School.

The Truth of the Philosopher’s Stone: Magnalia Naturae

magalia naturae

The Truth of the Philosopher’s Stone or Magnalia Naturae is a story about a search for the philosopher’s stone. It is about an Austrian friar named Wenceslaus Seilerus, who searches to transmute stone into precious metals. According to Dr. Becher’s account, the friar truly did manage to turn stone into precious metals and this story is the record of Wenceslaus Seilerus’ alchemical achievement. See the book here Magalia Naturae

Nothing gold can stay, Robert Frost

Natures first green is gold,

her hardest hue to hold,

her early leaf’s a flower,

but only so an hour,

then leaf subsides to leaf,

so eden sank to grief,

so dawn goes down to day,

nothing gold can stay.

The secret healing power of Water?

Some natural healers are suggesting that health begins with water which is basically composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. This is the vehicle which carries soluble nutrients to all living things causing them to flourish and grow. A new theory has surfaced however that perhaps there is something else about water which most of us do not know. Dr. Sebi spoke of water from a geothermal hot spring in Honduras where hot water bubbled up out of the ground naturally infused with minerals. He also said the PH level of that water was 9.8. Most people who know much about water filtration systems will tell you that the perfect PH balance of water is approximately 7.2 however another theory is that perhaps that information is incorrect. Certain natural healers comparable to what we would call tribal medicine men of the rain forest have stated their beliefs that when the PH balance of water rises above 8.2 it begins to destroy bacteria due to the fact that the oxygen level of the water increases. Our bodies need naturally occurring trace minerals like those from Dr. Sebi’s geothermal spring water. I have heard people say that viruses cannot survive for very long when they are in contact with oxygen. Water is the vehicle which can carry that oxygen throughout the cells of our body. If an average cup of tap water is composed of two parts hydrogen to one part oxygen at a PH balance of 7 to 7.2 9or even less) Then how is this ratio affected when the PH balance of the water climbs as high as 9.8? Is the ratio changed? What if it were to reverse and become two parts oxygen to one part hydrogen? This would be a vast difference. Imagine the thinking power of a mind receiving twice the normal amount of oxygen as well as the natural healing power of the body unleashed. Bob Barefoot indicated his belief that high quality coral calcium plays an important role in health and nutrition because not only is it a great source of calcium and trace minerals building strong bones but also because it supposedly increases the oxygen absorption throughout the cells of our body.

There is more to the story here because a great many people seem to be interested in whole body detoxes or “cleanses” and one popular trend which resonates well with me is the all natural citrus detox cleanse. The diluted citric acid from citrus fruits is believed to dissolve and flush out all those negative things from our bodies that we consume. This leaves me feeling more healthy, energetic and vibrant. I have noticed people commenting that I look more healthy at times and it has to do with what I consume since we are what we eat. Now the secret is about to be let out of the bag because I am going to reveal my own personal recipe for the citrus detox/cleanse. I start with an inexpensive hand juicer designed for citrus Citrus Juicer   I avoid store bought juice since it is not fresh and who knows what chemicals, preservatives sugars and what not else has been added to it. I try to pick organic fruit if it is available and I also get the best quality bottled water I can find.

most popular juicers

At my local Walmart I can usually get Evian water which my research indicates to be the best they have, second to this is Fiji which is also good. Both remind me of the fresh mountain spring water I once knew in days gone by. For this we need a cutting board, a knife, a manual citrus juicer, two oranges, one lemon, and one lime. I cut the citrus fruits in half and juice them pouring the collected liquid into a drinking glass so that they are combined, then I add anywhere from fifty to eighty percent bottled water to the citric acid to dilute it because it is quite strong. I seem to have accidently stumbled upon a natural recipe for home made lemonade the way I envision it to have been made in previous centuries with nothing but water and fresh squeezed lemon juice which served over ice is quite delicious in my opinion. (No Sugar Added) Now according to the theories or beliefs of the ancient hermetic science of alchemy, all living things contain the same life force energy which is said to be the universal spirit which animates us all. With this theory in mind, I prefer to pick my citrus fruit (and other things) fresh from the vine to be consumed immediately because it is still alchemically speaking “alive” and containing the highest level of life force energy which begins to diminish as the “living fruit” will wither and die once it is removed from the branch which gave it water and nutrients. Trees are of interest to me because they for one act as a natural water filter as the liquid travels through the wood not to mention the dirt under the tree also filters the water and infuses it with soluble nutrients. I believe water dissolves the soluble building blocks of nature which are used to create all living things (minerals) and carries this through the wood, infusing water, oxygen, life force energy and nutrients into the fruit. In ancient Rome scholars recommended that ones hearth (fireplace) might be thine medicine cabinet. They would take ashes of burned hardwood such as oak and add it to water as a beverage. They believed that the building blocks (minerals) of nature which had become locked into the wood during the growth of the tree were purified and once again released by fire. These naturally occurring soluble minerals were dissolved in the water and filtration can separate the solid particles although the ancients probably drank it straight. Current research has uncovered a popular new area of interest regarding Carbon-60. The rumor filtering down the grape vine is that charcoal might just be a new break through discovery in the area of anti aging which is also interesting because the ancients wrote about a secret medicine which they believed extended the life span beyond natural years as well as offering an extended preservation of a youthful body and overall appearance.

Glauber’s salt

This is said to be an excerpt from the alchemical writings of Glauber and attributed to a work of alchemical gemstones.

recipe from Glauber’s writings (part 1)

Adjoin to the red salt, made of wood or carbon, a little of the powder of white flints. Put them into a crucible, and melt them in a fire that they may become a red glass, resembling almost the colour of a ruby. By continuing the fusion the red colour changes to green, and has the likeness of an emerald. After this comes a sky colour, resembling a sapphire. Then follows a yellow, not unlike a jacynth. Then, after a long continued heat, it becomes black, and like to an agate.

The purifying fire of alchemy book #16 kindle edition

the purifying fire of alchemy

This text describes the three purifying fires. Emphasis is given to washing certain things snow-white with a Philosophical Purgatory Flame. Glauber states, “He that does not know what Fire and SALT are, knows nothing, and deserves not the name of a Philosopher.” The ultimate goal is to prepare universal medicines for the bodies of men and metals. Many references are made to various texts by other Alchemists. First printed in 1689, it was restored and added to the R.A.M.S. (Restorers of Alchemical Manuscripts) Library by Hans W. Nintzel in 1983.

The king of alchemy

Michael Sendivogius was like the king of alchemy to which other adepts paled in comparison. His alchemical works were based upon the great adept Alexander Seton however Seton instilled in him a lifelong passion regarding the alchemical arts of the ancient science with respect to medicine as well as the philosopher’s stone and the transmutation of base metals into gold or silver. As one ascends the rungs of the alchemical ladder it becomes clear that of the philosophical writings attributed to the adepts of the hermetic science of alchemy, whose were the most difficult to decipher? whose intrigued us enough to keep us coming back for more?, whose bore the highest wisdom concerning the light of truth? And whose were the most rewarding after years of study while the golden dawn approached?, Whose words rang true as the light of truth finally began to set in, illuminating the ignorant from the wise? Michael Sendivogius, the king of alchemy. The deep philosophy embedded in his words for all to see, but few to understand. The mark of the true adept.
