Alchemy is a medieval, chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold, the discovery of a universal cure for disease, and the discovery of a means of indefinitely prolonging life.
Alchemy has played a significant role in the development of modern chemistry, medicine and psychology. It can be defined as an ancient art form that seeks purification of the soul and immortality in parallel with the transmutation of chemical elements where gold symbolizes perfection.
A great example of Alchemy today is Color Therapy. Despite popular belief, Alchemy has very little to do with Chemistry, and much more to do with Herbology, Meditation, and Chakral Development.
Metal Elementals in Alchemy
Metal is yin in character, its motion is inwards and its energy is contracting. It is associated with the autumn, the west, old age and the planet Venus. The archetypal metals are silver and gold.
In Chinese Taoist thought, Metal attributes are considered to be firmness, rigidity, persistence, strength, and determination. In traditional Chinese medicine, metal governs the lung and the large intestine, nose and skin. The negative emotion associated with metal is grief, while the positive emotion is courage.
