Alchemy {8} ~ The Spiritual Stages Of Alchemy {7} ~ Coagulation

Similar to the blood’s ability to form clots and stop bleeding, Coagulation is the moment when we’ve “broken open the head,” or in other words, we have become free from the mind and have allowed our consciousness or Soul to connect with the Materia Prima: the Spirit.

The meeting point between two opposites such as the spiritual self and raw matter, heaven and hell, and life and death, is the point where existence becomes self-aware. This is the moment when our lives are without duality; when matter becomes Spirit – or Spirit is manifested in material form.


In the stage of Coagulation, the physical universe is not separate from the mind or spiritual reality; it is a reflection of it.

Alchemy’s greatest achievement is to create an interrelationship between mind and matter, between self and world. It embodies and points to the union of opposites, the transcendence of division, and the Oneness of all beings.
