Alchemy and Kabbalah in the Tarot: Arcanum 2
Now let us study the magical equilibrium of the Second Arcanum of the Tarot.
The physical body is organized by the elements. The Innermost emanated from the Inner Star that has always smiled upon us; He is positively polarized. The physical body is the negative shadow of the Innermost.
Spirit and matter live in eternal combat. When the Spirit defeats the matter, the Spirit then becomes a Master. Maya (illusion) could not exist without the duality. Force and matter are two modalities of the same thing: energy. Matter is determined energy and a determiner of new undulations. Evolution is a process of complication of the energy whose outcome is the Macrocosmos and the Microcosmos. The universe is Maya (illusion). The universe exists because of Karma and it is a mass of floating shadows.
When the Spirit (the Innermost) liberates himself from Maya, it returns to the Ain Soph of Kabbalah. In the last synthesis each Being is just a super divine atom from the abstract absolute space. That atom is the Ain Soph.
The ineffable gods from the Ain Soph are beyond any comprehension for us. The human mind is for the gods of the Ain Soph what the activities of the mineral kingdom are for us. Within the Ain Soph only the unity of life reigns; that is supreme happiness. The universe is duality, Maya/pain. We need to liberate ourselves from the binary and to return into the unity of life. It is urgent to pass beyond the painful manifestations of Maya. A science exists; with it we can tear the veil of Maya and return into the Ain Soph; that science is Alchemy.
Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller stated: “A chemist just happened to forget about an emerald ring that was close to a little test tube containing radium. After few weeks he saw that the emerald had absolutely changed into another stone, unknown to him. Thereafter he purposely left other stones like rubies, zephyrs, etc., in contact with the radium: his surprise was great when he discovered that after a little time such stones had absolutely changed their color; the blue ones had turned into red and the red ones into green.” Dr. Krumm-Heller continues saying, “Gentlemen, do you know what the former statement that I just mentioned means (since I do not consider that it is scientifically established)? It means that Shakespeare was right when he said that ‘many things exist between heaven and earth that our scholastic consciousness does not even suspect,’ and the science of alchemy is reborn when corroborating the transmutations of metals.” Man and woman must equilibrate their forces; they must become alchemists, so that they can return to the Ain Soph. Circe offers the tempting cup and Ulysses rejects her with his sword. The sacred sign of the infinite represents the brain, heart, and sex of the planetary Genie. This struggle is terrible, brain against sex, and sex against brain, and what is even more terrible and more painful, heart against heart. You know this.
The Masters used to place three cups of glory, three cups of Alchemy upon the altars of the temples of the White Lodge. Each one of these three sacred cups of the temple contains a precious balm: the Red Balm is the Fire, the Blue Balm is the Water, and the White Balm is the Universal Spirit of Life.
Ida and Pingala are the canals through which the atoms of Fire and Water ascend; the Spirit grasps the cane with seven knots (that cane is the spinal medulla). When man and woman learn how to avoid the sexual spasm and the ejaculation of the “Ens Seminis,” then the igneous serpent of our magical powers awakens. If you want to return to the father who is in secret, you must first return to the bosom of your Divine Mother Kundalini. You need to raise the serpent of life through your medullar canal. This is Alchemy.
Alchemy: You have forgotten your Divine Mother Kundalini. You need to worship the divine and blessed Mother Goddess of the world. You have been ungrateful to your Cosmic Mother; She is the Virgin of all religious cults; She is Isis, Mary, Cybele, Adonia, Insobertha, etc. The Stone of Grace is surrounded by nine delectable mountains; that Stone is sex. If you want to return to the bosom of your Divine Mother, you need to work with the Philosophical Stone: sex.
The Mayas stated that in the first heaven God, the Word, had held his stone, had held his serpent, and had held his substance. Only with the Arcanum A.Z.F. can the Word become flesh in order to grasp his stone, his serpent and his substance anew. Then we will return into the Ain Soph; we will return into the unity of life. You are the children of the Widow, your Divine Mother is now a widow, but when She rises through the medullar canal, she is betrothed with the Eternal Beloved. Your Divine Mother is the Second Arcanum, the Popess of the Tarot. She is crowned with a tiara. The head of the Divine Mother is surrounded by a veil. You must be courageous and lift the Veil of Isis. Our Gnostic motto is Thelema (willpower).
The Mother carries her son (the Word) within her arms; and she is seated between the two columns that symbolize man and woman. Worship the Virgin of the Sea, brothers and sisters of mine. The Divine Mother appears in the Second Arcanum making the priestly esoteric sign with her hand. Study within the sacred book of your Divine Mother. “Ask and it shall be given to you. Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” (Matthew 7:7) Your Divine Mother can grant the longed for occult powers. Pray to your Divine Mother; practice your esoteric exercises; you can ask your adored Mother for clairvoyance, telepathy, clairaudience, the faculties for Astral projection, etc. You can be sure that your Divine Mother will listen to your beseeching. You must profoundly meditate everyday upon your Divine Mother, praying, pleading. “You need to be devoured by the serpent.” One (1) is the man, two (2) is the woman; the man is one column the woman is the other column of the temple. The two columns must not be too close or too distant; there must be enough space so that the light can pass between them.
It is necessary to transmute the lead of the personality into the pure gold of the spirit: this is Alchemy. The moon must be transformed into the sun. The moon is the Soul; the sun is the inner Christ. We need to be Christified. No human being can return to the Father without having been devoured by the serpent. No one can be devoured by the serpent without having worked in the flaming forge of Vulcan (sex). The key of Christification is the Arcanum A.Z.F. The mantra for the Arcanum A.Z.F. is I.A.O. – I (Ignis), Fire, A (Aqua), Water, O (Origo), Principle, Spirit.
Mars descends into the flaming forge of Vulcan in order to retemper his sword and to conquer the heart of Venus, Hercules descends in order to clean the stables of Augias with the sacred fire, and Perseus descends in order to cut off Medusa’s head. Remember beloved disciples that our Divine Mother is Nut and her word is (56) fifty-six. This number is Kabbalistically added as follows: 5 + 6 = 11, then 1 + 1 = 2. One is the Father; two is She, Nut, the Divine Mother Kundalini.
1. Lay down on your bed, facing up and with your relaxed body.
2. Achieve the state of slumber by meditating upon the sacred serpent that dwells in the coccygeal chakra.
3. Thereafter, pray with all of your heart, meditating on the following sacred, ritualistic prayer:
Be thou, oh Hadit, my secret, the Gnostic mystery of my Being, the central point of my connection, my heart itself, and bloom on my fertile lips, made Word!
Up above, in the infinite Heavens, in the profound height of the unknowable, the incessant glow of light is the naked beauty of Nut. She reclines, she bends in delectable ecstasy, to receive the kiss of secret fervor of Hadit. The winged sphere and the blue of the sky are mine.

These mantras have the power of transmuting our sexual energy into light and fire within the alchemical laboratory of the human body. This prayer with its mantras can be utilized in Sexual Magic. This prayer with its mantras is an omnipotent clue in order to meditate upon our Divine Mother.
The Master Huiracocha (Dr. Krumm-Heller) stated the following in his Rosicrucian Novel: “When the man joins the woman in the secret act, he becomes a God since he converts himself into a Creator in this moment. Seers state that in those precise moments of love, the two beings are seen enveloped by a brilliant burst of light; they are enveloped by the most subtle and potent forces that are in nature. If man and woman would know how to withdraw without the spasm and retain such a vibration, then they can operate with it as a magician in order to purify themselves and obtain everything. However if they do not know how to retain such light, it will withdraw from them in order to set out into the universal currents, yet leaving behind the open doors so that evil can introduce itself to them. Then love is converted into hatred, their illusion is followed by deception.”
With the mantric prayer that we have taught in this lesson, we retain that brilliant cosmic light that envelops the human couple in that supreme moment of love with the condition of avoiding, by all means, the ejaculation of the Ens Seminis. The mantras of this invocation have the power of transmuting the creative energies into Light and Fire.
The bachelor and bachelorettes can also transmute and sublimate their sexual energies and carry them to the heart with this prayer and these mantras. You must know that in the Temple of the Heart, the creative energies are mixed with the forces of Christ and thereafter they elevate to the superior worlds. The inner Christ lives in the Heart Temple. The cross of initiation is received in the Heart Temple. This mantric prayer is also a formula of priestly power that the magician utilizes in his practices of internal meditation in order to arrive at the feet of his Divine Mother. If the meditation is perfect, your adorable Mother will hear your call and she will come to you; then you can converse with her about ineffable, paradisiacal things. She is Devi Kundalini; She is the Popess of the Tarot. The Divine Mother always listens to her devotees. In the sacred land of the Vedas, Ramakrishna was one of her greatest devotees.
Do you want to reach the heights of Nirvikalpa-Samadhi? Do you need to develop Anubhava (perception in meditation of your Inner God)? Do you want the Jinn Science? Remember that you have an adorable Mother.
Ask and it shall be given to you. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. - Matthew 7: 7
