“Spiritual Alchemy is a journey which flows in three parts: awakening (seeing the truth); activating (cleansing and purifying); and anchoring (integration of all the wisdom and lessons which came before, so that you can step fully into your authentic self).” — Eleftheria Kakambouras
A Course in Magic
I recently had the honour of completing a 6 week course with holistic therapist and empowerment facilitator, Eleftheria Kakambouras (click HERE to find out more about her).
This powerful and magical journey took the group through claiming our inner God/Goddesses, beautiful guided meditations that got us in touch with our authentic selves and cleared past life and lineage blockages, healing the wounded self, merging with our sacred masculine and divine feminine aspects and paved the way for prosperity through using our innate wisdom to tune into thriving.
The Triple A’s of Awakening
I love Eleftheria’s statement (as quoted at the beginning of this blog) about the spiritual journey flowing in three parts.
“The more real you get the more unreal the world gets.” — John Lennon
Let’s take a closer look at that:
Awakening — Seeing the truth. Many of us have had our eyes pried wide open during our awakening. It’s not an easy experience seeing the world for what it is — an illusion (dreamt up and applied, usually by indoctrination or subliminal programming, to the masses by external forces). It takes guts and courage to move past the anger and feelings of resentment that flood us when we realize we have been misled and lied to. The beauty, however, lies in the world of magic beyond the veil of the illusion. The mysterious path of truth that leads us to the Tao (the ‘Whole’ or Creator Force — whatever you want to call it).
- Activation — Cleansing and Purifying. This part of the journey is getting stuck into peeling back the layers of the onion (us)…or should we say peeling the artichoke to get to that juicy little heart. We have to release and let go of what no longer serves us. This transformational process can take us months or, more often than not, years (sometimes even lifetimes) but because we seem to be in the quickening energy (an accelerated epoch of planetary evolution), it’s taking quicker than previous lifetimes.
- Anchoring — Integrating the wisdom and lessons which came before. Once we have cut back the ‘dead’ bits of our past and have ditched the excess baggage, we can step into the phase of acceptance and responsibility. Everything that has happened to us on our souls sojourn has a lesson, a tasty little tit-bit for us to take and learn from. When we get to this part, we can look back and glean the pearls of wisdom that our past offered us, take responsibility for the parts we’ve played and move into a new timeline of responsible and joyful co-creation.
We truly live in remarkable times.
Even though, when we look at the news especially, it may seem that we are nowhere near bringing about Heaven on Earth — there is something innate that tells us to stay on track because our seeds are growing and we are raising the vibration of this glorious planet.
Keep with the program — your very presence on this Earth has made a world of difference!
If you fancy a retreat coupled with a stunning vacation hot-spot, Eleftheria is planning an intimate group getaway in Crete this October! You can read more about that HERE.

Awesome! I’m wondering myself if there isn’t a fourth stage/factor to the process… after the integration/anchoring there’s an ‘expressing’. The caterpillar has successfully become the butterfly but if she remains in the chrysalis the world won’t get to experience her unique beauty and neither will she get to experience her full expression. Sometimes breaking out of that chrysalis and sharing the gift of who you’ve become can be just as hard as the other stages (if not more so). What do you think? xx Tracy
I like that! Yes, expressing our unique creative essence can definitely take up space no. 4 😉 Thanks for sharing your take.
