Yoga as Inner Alchemy
Inner peace and freedom becomes available to us when we hone and collect our power through regular practice, becoming skillful alchemists through yogic rituals of self-care. When we use the yogic lens of panchabhuta, the five elements,- earth, water, fire, air and space- to consciously craft our bodies, our moods and our environment, we constellate more often around ease as opposed to stress. This is the process of inner alchemy.
To the skilled yogi, the applications of the five elelments are endless. We can use the elements to cool the flames of anger or focus our burning passion effectively and with precision, to stimulate the watery flow of creativity or channel a storming torrent of challenging thoughts or emotions towards the highest possible outcome, to inspire ourselves and others like the cool freshness of a deep, slow inhale or to navigate the winds of change with the ease of a bird floating through the endless immensity of the sky or we can use them to ground ourselves into love the face of anxiety or fear.
The yogi, or sadhika, is asked to purify, strengthen and refine her unique alchemical vessel, composed of the five elements- Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Space- to stir them together in varying degrees depending on the situation and imbibe this alchemical brew to invoke her own transformation. The concoction usually tastes something like wellness, balance, ease, love, truth, power and service.
