In 1989, a wealthy farmer, named David R. Hudson, received a British patent for developing a way of chemically separating certain metals, atom by atom, from the materials in which they exist in Mother Nature. And these metals include gold.
His patented process separates gold down to its single atomic, or mono-atomic, form. The electron rearrangement of his process yields a pure white powder that has very unique electronic, chemical, magnetic and physical properties. What is most interesting is that, when heated, this substance decreases in density and begins to levitate.
For centuries, people have searched in secret for a chemical process that will produce this mono-atomic gold. When mixed with water, this substance becomes what the ancient Egyptians called the Golden Tear from the Eye of Horus. To the spiritually adept, it provides a way to transform the carbon based human body into the immortal Light Body and reunite with the Divine. They call it the Great Work.[i]
There is a second and third century category of Greek literature, called Hermetica, which contains secret wisdom that provides a means to this spiritual rebirth through enLightenment.
Hermetica is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, the sage, scientist and sorcerer. His most well known works are Corpus Hermeticum and Tabula Smaragdina. More commonly referred to as the Emerald Tablets, the latter deals with the nature of magic, and the creation of life and matter by one God. Another well known source of Hermetica can be found in the ideals of Iamblichus of Chalcis, a third-century Neoplatonist who wrote De mysteriis. As a commentary on the Egyptian mysteries, it is one of the most important ancient pagan texts still in existence today.
Examples of Hermetic mysticism can be seen in philosophies such as Gnosticism and Pythagoreanism. Christian Gnostics began applying the teachings of Hermes two-hundred years after the death of Christ. But, during the Renaissance period, many people misinterpreted them as black magic. So they were driven underground where a number of secret Hermetic societies were born. Derived from the Latin word occultus, the word occult simply means ‘secret.’
The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Matthew 13:11
The philosophy of Hermeticism is comprised of Astrology, Alchemy and Theurgy. So the hermeticist begins his quest for enLightenment by learning the science of Astrology, the study of the cycles of the movements of the celestial bodies – the planets.
The planets are connected magnet-ically, both to humanity as well as to the Earth. So their influence has a direct affect on our psyche in accordance with the position of the stars at our time of birth.
It is the 12-sided dodecahedron shape of the current Earth grid that creates the twelve signs of the zodiac on which the foundation of Astrology was built. It was designed to play a major role in our spiritual evolution, as part of the Earth Game. So, by carefully studying these cycles, the hermeticist can maintain balance in his life in order to continue his quest.

As he advances in skill and knowledge, he begins to use the spiritual practices of Theurgy to work with Gaia, the Greek goddess who is the concept of Mother Nature, and the Anima mundi, which in Latin means ‘the soul of the cosmos,’ the pure etheric Spirit that is diffused throughout all of Creation.
The art of Theurgy involves the changing of matter through the changing of energy. If you change the vibrational frequency within the atomic structure of a substance, it changes that substance into a new form. So, while working in harmony with the Goddess, the hermeticist learns to control, purify and transform the elements of air, fire, water and earth – the four fundamental forces of nature.
Within each of these four elements, there exist spirits that are the essence of that element. These spirits are composed of etheric matter – the fifth element. The hermeticist works with these spirits in the same way as the native American shaman. When a person can see the electrons within physical matter with their ‘third eye’ perception, they can effectively change the element of water into wine.

But it is the Hermetic art of Alchemy that is seen as the esoteric key to the Great Work. The true hermeticist knows that he must concentrate on the purification of his heart before he can master these arts. Like the shaman, he understands the requirement for creating a Unified Field by combining science with Spirit. It is a pure heart to which Mother Nature, the Goddess, responds.
And only a pure heart can reunite with the Divine.
