Alchemy {2} ~ The Spiritual Stages Of Alchemy {1} ~ Calcination

While there are no universal stages of alchemy due to the sheer number of different schools out there, this is one of the most widely accepted progressional stages.

1. Calcination

Calcination is the process of heating and decomposing raw matter – or in other words, breaking down parts of ourselves that are in the way of our own happiness. Often we’d rather be right or fulfill an idea of “perfection” than be truly happy, so we continue neglecting the exploration of ourselves.

The stage of Calcination represents the stage in our lives where we begin breaking down our egos, self-doubt, stubbornness, self-sabotaging behavior, pride, and arrogance, and put it aside so we can find out what is underneath.
