The Ancient Art of Mental Transmutation

Are you a victim of your emotions?

Does the way you feel dictate your behaviour?

Do you understand that you can change how you feel through your thoughts and actions?

Think back to the last time you allowed your emotions to have a negative effect on your reality…

You allowed yourself to spiral down the stairway of darkness within your mind.

And that downward spiral on the Mental Plane affected your physical reality.

You said something nasty to your partner.

You ate shit food and smoked a joint instead of working out.

You escaped reality by staring into your black mirror to get a cheap dopamine hit…

Instead of being present in the real world.

What if you could overcome your emotions and perform regardless of your feelings?

Do you think your life would dramatically improve if you could overcome your emotional state?

If you could transmute the negative to the positive?

Anyone who has developed a level of self-mastery does this instinctually to a certain degree.

However, every single person is capable of Transmutation if they dedicate themselves to the Cause.

What is Mental Transmutation?

“Mental Transmutation” is the art of changing and transforming mental states, forms, and conditions, into others.” – The Kybalion.

Mental Transmutation can be considered the “Art of Mental Chemistry”.

It is Mental Alchemy.

The Art of Transmutation as we know it, originates from the days of Ancient Egypt.

This ancient art comes from the fascinating teachings of Hermeticism.

The Great teachers of Egypt and Hermeticism understood and regularly used the power of the Mind.

They understood its transformative and creative powers.

The idea of turning lead into gold is a metaphor that describes Transmutation (mental alchemy).

The Philosopher’s Stone is a mythic alchemical substance capable of turning base metals into gold or silver.

It is an allegory that explains how Man holds the power to turn the undesirable into the desirable.

The negative into the positive.

An example of this stone being used is in the film Harry Potter: The Philosopher’s Stone.

When Harry Potter is facing Voldermort at the end of the film…

He realises that he has the Philosopher’s Stone in his pocket.

We don’t get to see how it got there…

Because he had the capability to overcome darkness all along…

He always had the Philosopher’s Stone.

The Philosopher’s Stone represents your innate ability to overcome darkness through Mental Alchemy.

Voldemort symbolises the dark side of Harry Potter.

The dark side that we all have within us.

Harry Potter uses the stone to defeat Voldemort.

And Light destroys Darkness once again.

In the absence of light, you will be consumed by darkness.

If you shine your light, darkness cannot exist.

You already have the power to transmute the negative into the positive within your own Mind.

Through thought alone.

This is Mental Transmutation.

This is how you create change within yourself and in your physical reality.

You are an Electromagnetic Being

Humans are emotional beings.

Humans are electromagnetic beings.

Your thoughts are electric and your emotions are magnetic.

Thoughts lead to corresponding emotions and corresponding actions.

Your thoughts are the seed of your reality.

They ripple out into the tree of your life which is your nervous system.

And by extension, the world around you.

When your mind and body are in harmony, the effects ripple out into the reality around you.

Your thoughts, emotions, and actions are creating your reality in every moment.

This can be either positive or negative.

Depending on whether you decide to feed positive or negative thoughts.

If you take the time to sit and contemplate your reality.

And why you behave and feel the way you do…

It won’t be long before you realise that it is dependent on four core factors:

  • Thoughts
  • Perceptions
  • Beliefs
  • Environment

Awareness is the precursor to change.

You must become aware of what thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs are not serving you.

You must become aware of what aspects of your environment are holding you back.

And then make the necessary adjustments…

How to Transmute on the Physical Plane

Transmutation can be performed on the Physical Plane as well as the Mental Plane.

As the Principle of Correspondence explains…

The three Great Planes correspond with one another.

What happens on the Physical Plane corresponds with what happens on the Mental Plane.

Changing your physical reality will change your mental reality and vice versa.

Before we dive into Mental Transmutation…

Here are some effective activities that change your state and increase your vibration on the Physical Plane:

  • Go into nature and come to your senses

  • Laughing
  • Engage in interesting conversations
  • Engage in something that challenges you
  • Eat healthy food
  • Go for a walk
  • Play with your dog
  • Draw. Paint. Create.
  • Listen to music

How to Transmute on the Mental Plane

“The ALL is Mind; The Universe is Mental.” – The Kybalion.

You have a choice at any given moment.

The choice of what to think, say, and do.

You are in complete control of your Mind.

You can use your Free Will to make yourself think about whatever you want.

When you are wallowing in a negative mental state…

It is possible, and vital that you direct your attention and energy toward the opposite end of the pole.

You must make yourself focus on a more desirable state.

When you indulge in thoughts and feelings of hate…

You must fill your Mind with thoughts of love.

When you are consumed by fear…

You must fill your Mind with thoughts of being courageous.

When you are drenched in self-doubt…

You must fill your Mind with thoughts of certainty and faith.

You are able to use your Free Will to make yourself think more desirable thoughts.

It will feel uncomfortable and unfamiliar in the moment.

Because your mind and body will resist the change…

However, your thoughts are seeds.

When you plant positive thoughts and water them… They grow.

The first step is to become aware.

You must become aware and conscious of when you are thinking doubtful, fearful, and hateful thoughts.

Then you must understand that you can use your Free Will to transmute that energy into another more desirable mental state.

Once you are aware of the extremes that exist at each pole…

You can use it to your advantage and polarise yourself to the degree you wish to experience.

People who have attained a degree of self-mastery do this naturally.

They use their Free Will to control their thoughts and actions in order to move toward a more desirable state.

They choose to be the Cause of their reality.

You can also choose to become the Cause of your life.

And it all begins with a thought.

By choosing to focus your entire Being on a specific mental state…

By choosing to engage in certain activities.

By choosing to transmute within your Mind.

You are changing the frequency at which you vibrate.

Your vibration has an immediate effect on the people and the reality around you.

By taking control of what you think, say, and do…

You are taking control of your reality.

With energy,


Improve Your Health.

Expand Your Mind.

Raise Your Vibration.
