Разбрах за Този буркан от една моя клиентка. Тя на свой ред беше прочела за него в една книга и си го беше направила. Пълнеше го с всичко, за което създателката на тази техника за справяне с творческите блокажи - Джулия Камерън, препоръчваше - страхове, тревоги, желания, надежди, негативни чувства. Всичко, с което не можеше да се справи сама и което не се подчиняваше на съзнателното й намерение и личната й воля. Пишеше на листче това, което тревожеше или за което копнееше сърцето й, и го предаваше в ръцете на Бога. Пускаше контрола върху нещата, които бяха в Неговата зона на отговорност. Когато разбрах за тази проста техника, нямах съмнение, че тя върши отлична работа и е чудесно средство за освобождаване от невротичното ни страдание. Защото - толкова много неща не зависят от личната ни воля! Дори и да си мислим обратното, щом се страхуваме от нещо, значи то е извън нашия контрол. Иначе нямаше да се страхуваме, просто щяхме да взе...

Like The sleeping beauty

"Imagine that from now on, there is nothing you “must do” in your life. If you would really grant yourself that freedom, your life would consistently flow smooth and easy. I understand that this runs counter to much that you have been told by your parents, teachers, employers, etcetera. Society imparts on you that you have to work hard and diligently to develop the necessary skills and abilities to cope with reality. It tells you to think small and focus on what is possible rather than on what you dream and hope for. Not only society tells you this, even a lot of spiritual teachings have a rather stern and disciplinary outlook on how to achieve enlightenment." Pamela Kribbe, „Heart centered living", p. 172 Commentary: To allow ourselves to relax, in the trust that all is fine and ultimately we are going to have what we want, is one of the hardest things in life. Furthermore, for the Saturn type, this is not just difficult, but ...

For people who go through the fire of calcination there is one more thing they need to be aware of - the main subject of the undergoing change is the cognitive function of thinking. It is the way we think – how we perceive ourselves, the world and our own place in it, how we interpret the things that happen to us, what is in the core of the alchemist work during the calcination process. I have found that the main difficulty for people who are going through this process is precisely the ingenuity of the mind to sneak out and avoid seeing the obvious. The mind can be as slippery as a fish! The expression “like the Devil reads the Bible” describes precisely the way our mind functions in such situation. This is why some authors (like Eckhart Tolle) make an equation between the Ego and the mind – the mind can provide a perfect shelter for this mental part of us that resists change. When I talk with “people in calcination” and try to ma...

Calcination – the recipe

 
15.11.2013



This article is a continuation of the previous one – „Persephone’s abduction“, in which the “abduction”, from the view of the Ego looks like falling down into the underground kingdom, but  from the view of the Spirit is exactly the opposite – initiation into the depths of the unconscious. It is a meeting of the transpersonal forces that are active at deeper layers of the human psyche and require a different approach to proceed once they come on the surface in our life. So far, I have come to understand the alchemy’s spiritual symbolism only through texts of Jung and the Jungian therapists. But lately I have tried to read more specific alchemist literature and this gave me new shades of understanding of the process of spiritual transformation – the main object of the alchemical Magnum opus (i.e. The Great Work). I will try to present below the psychological and spiritual interpretation of the first stage of this process – the so ca...
