AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY 

Colleen Anne Smith (B.A., Dip. Ed.,Dip. Hom., Dip. Herb.) has
spent many years as a teacher- not only of high school students, but also as a
teacher of spiritual philosophy. Her interest in metaphysical reality began with
her study of Homeopathy in the1980’s.  

As a practitioner of Homeopathy, she wrote Homeopathy The
Healer
, an introductory primer for those beginning treatment in this
alternative field of healing. Her dedication to promoting holistic health led
her into other fields such as Herbalism, Reflexology and metaphysical healing.

As her experience in the healing arts widened, her
understanding of spiritual philosophy deepened enhancing her awareness of
spiritual connections beyond the material world.


Harnessing The Alchemist Within

is the product of over twenty five years of growth along a spiritual pathway
which continues to evolve into greater awareness of Soul centered living
.

The Voice Of The Alchemist

 

This is
your voice –the You as you really are!

So
often you sense within

The
deeper murmurs of your heart –

Those
soft words which rise gently and quietly

From
somewhere not quite tangible,

But
real, nevertheless.

Words
of guidance, patience, trust, courage, love –

Words
coloured by an energy which you know

To be
beyond your physical senses.

 

This
energy of a metaphysical nature

You
might call “Soul” or “Higher Self”.

Either
way, when this part of you speaks,

There
is a sense of Truth and Knowingness

Which
cannot be ignored.

 

You
feel its persuasion and strength.

If you
listen, you know

The
rightness of its directives.

Follow
and all seems to flow –

Easily,
without confusion.

 

This is
your Alchemist –

Your
own pool of ancient and modern wisdom –

There
for you to drink from at will.

 

It
knows neither structure nor barrier.

It is
free and exists without condition.

Its
purpose is to give life and richness –

To all
you do and all you are.

 

Like a
magical transformer,

It
touches upon your thoughts and feelings

And
somehow raises them to another level.

 

It is
the Enlightener –

The
Giver of sweetness to nourish and elevate;

To
bring into reality

The
magnificence of the Divine enfleshed –


Consciously and totally.

 

Yes—The
Alchemist –

The
Preserver of all Possibility,

The
Creator of all Experience –

Which
promote the evolution

Of the
human self

Into
the Greater Self of true awakening –

 

The
Essential Self.




 


Harnessing The Alchemist


 

 

Gazing
out across the twilight ocean,


Absorbed in the lilac beauty of the sunset,

What is
it that you relax into?

In the
stillness of the day’s end,

All is
quieted within you too –

Even
for this brief moment of wonder and peace.

 

What a
marvellous feeling to be one with nature

In such
an instant!

How
amazing it is to feel all chaos dissolve away


Albeit fleetingly –

To be
fully awakened to the majesty you behold!

 

This is
quiet surrender to your Soul –

The
opening for The Alchemist

To be
mindfully present

As your
awareness changes from the immediate

To the
reflective.

 

You
will never forget the magic of sunset,

Or
sunrise, or the silence of night –

When
your Soul touches upon the experience,


Blending you in the now with the more ethereal.

 

 

At
another time you will seek the same again –


Questing for the sated feeling

That
The Alchemist

Is able
to create and hold for you.

 

In that
you will make way for Its handiwork

And
harness Its power.

 

So, be
still; reflect; experience.

Seek
serenity, kindness and joy.

Allow
your mind to absorb goodness in all its forms.

It will
respond with calming thoughts,

Gentle
motivations and wholesome understandings

Of the
world in which you live.

 

And The
Alchemist will deliver to you

The
knowing that All is Well –

In
spite of whatever else.

 

In the
pages to follow

Find
thoughts which The Alchemist within

Can
shape for you alone

So that
you are able to be alchemised –

From
one in isolation and disconnectedness

To one
who is intricately and wholly

Blended
consciously

With
the Will of the Universe-

Being
genuinely at One with All There Is.

 

 



The Alchemist Speaks…


 

“Seeker
of Truth….”

It
whispered to me in my stillness.

 

“You
are the brave warrior,

Daring
to confront

The
unknown mystery of life itself.

Who knows what You
will find

Within the
cavernous spaces

Of Your
mind, Your heart, Your soul?

 


“Gathering strength, Seeker of Truth,

You
embark on the journey,

Armed
with only the knowledge

Of what
has gone before,


Clutching the desire to find what is still unknown.

Your
breath of determination drawn in,

With
readiness,

You
cast caution and hesitation

Into
the wildness of the void of ignorance.

 

“And
what, Seeker of Truth,

Do You
think You will find there?

What
will You, Valiant One, bring to Light?

 

 

“Simply
the Truth –

 

“That
all which You thought

Was so
elusive and foreign,

Is
hidden inside of Yourself,

Lying
in latent hope of discovery –

 

ALL
THAT TIME.

 

“By
thus journeying with courage

Into
the unfathomable depths of the Inner Man,

There,
in the stillness of Silence,

The
Ancient Self waits for an audience.

This
timeless Oracle carries the message of Truth –


Translating the intent of the Divine Self

Into
the desires and impulses of the Human Heart.

 

“So
listen carefully and be not afraid.

The
subtle stirrings of the Beyond

Will
lighten the weight of Life


Bringing optimism and even joy from the Soul.

 


“Therein lies the reason for earthly existence.

Therein
lies the motivation to persist.

Therein
lies the completion You Seek.”
