A stage of alchemy where we discover parts of our personality we were previously unaware of, a stage of beginnings and endings. A time when we receive the answers we most need.
The Enigma is the Nigredo persona, mysterious and unknown. You, as The Enigma understands the darkness, and extracts wisdom from it.
"I allow my deepest truths to surface"
"I release and banish all that is harmful to my mind and body"
As we know, black absorbs energy. While using Nigredo, imagine toxins are being pulled out of your mind and body, like a magnet, into the product where it is all transformed.
A set of affirmations, a visualization prompt, and quote best suited for each theme is provided.
Because the body and mind are deeply connected, we have found applying the techniques to a familiar physical activity, such as putting on lotion, or taking a shower, allow them to become habit easier.
These are best done in a calm or sleepy state, as this is when the mind is most receptive to such mental techniques.
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." -Albert Einstein
"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
After Nigredo is Albedo. Toxins and blocks are clearing, and your mind is bringing you insights. Albedo is a very inspiring and creative stage, you are beginning to understand your potential. Now is the time of ideas.
The Visionary is the persona of Albedo: the artist, writer, philosopher, inventor, musician. You are filled with solutions and creative insights.
"I am open to creative ideas and solutions"
"I am aware of my highest potential"
While using Albedo, imagine you are near a clear body of water. In the water, tiny pieces of radiant light begin surfacing, symbolized as your ideas. When you picked them up, powerful and creative ideas are absorbed into you.
"Wisdom is a condition of consciousness rather than an attitude of mind. Wisdom is that state of being in which an individual finds himself when realization has tinctured and transmuted all attitudes and opinions."
- Manly P. Hall
Rubedo is a union, opposites into a whole. It is the stage where you become the embodiment of wisdom. You symbolize gold in this way, illuminating, and incorruptible.
The Alchemist is the Rubedo persona, the master of transformation. You have the ability to turn base into brilliance, including yourself. You act on the wisdom you have gained, and share the "gold" with all.

"Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled."
– The Kybalion
Duality is an inherent aspect of nature. For the individual, it is a choice. You have the ability to understand both sides, a unique perspective. You observe rather then react, you are difficult to manipulate.
Duality is personified by The Magician, the one in between the worlds. The Magician follows the middle path. Understanding both sides allows you to gain the best of both worlds, and see what others miss.
"I am present, centered, and grounded"
"My perception is balanced and whole"
Imagine yourself nearing three paths. The one on the left is dark, dense, and heavy. The one on the right is light, airy, and too bright to see. The middle path is perfectly clear, this path leads you to your intended destination.
"We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far."
Satori means "sudden enlightenment". The idea of enlightenment may be abstract, yet many agree thought awareness is a piece of the puzzle. You acquire this awareness through calm contemplation and meditation.
The Zen Master persona is the adept of thought awareness, while also avoiding attachment to them. As you contemplate, or meditate, on your own thoughts, you begin to note the same extraordinary skills.
"I have amazing awareness of my thoughts"
"I release attachment to thoughts without benefit"
Imagine you are sitting in a beautiful Zen garden, or somewhere that brings you calmness. Your thoughts are rising in front and over you, like the sun rising and setting. You see them, and decide which to accept, and to let go.
The Green Lion line represents the you who acts without fear, and with truth. Wise individuals know truth is only recognized through deep knowledge of the self, known as "The Great Work" in the ancient mystery schools.
The Warrior exemplifies the Green Lion ideal. You know your capability to have integrity, and become inspiration- and your ability to cause great harm. As a true warrior, you achieve greatness with awareness of your actions.
"I act with conscious purpose"
"I achieve greatness with wisdom"
Imagine you posses an absolutely brilliant, powerful sword and shield. The sword helps you separate truth from deceit, and fight for truth. The shield deflects all deception and harm, and returns it to the originator.
Succeed in not fearing the lion, and the lion will fear you.
To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.
- Isaac Newton
