Transformation: The Gold Seed Point

By | Published:


The fourth of the Diamond Points is the Transformation Point. We connect to Source, we ground and activate that information of Source in the body; this leads to the transformation of the body. As the information of the blueprint makes its way into the body it brings the individual human being into greater alignment with the fundamental Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow of the universe. One can define illness as blockage, imbalance, rigidity, stagnation, toxicity. Health has the qualities of openness, balance, flexibility, flow, and ongoing cleansing and release.

In the process of transformation, our imagination is one of our greatest allies. Paracelsus, the alchemist, said that the creative capacity of our imagination is identical to the creative capacity of the universe. As above, so below: this was the constant theme of the ancient alchemists. Our individual being reflects the universal order. We’re gold, but we think we’re lead. We’re light, but we think we are density. “We each have a heaven, and it lies in each of us,” says Paracelsus, and he’s not speaking metaphorically.

In Sourcepoint we work with the gold seed point as another connection to the blueprint, a way to access that “heaven” within us. The gold point is the seed that contains the information of the whole. Used in the chakras, it has a balancing effect. It aligns the body with the blueprint and provides a central structure around which the energies of the body can organize themselves. It radiates energy that melts away tension and blockages, and helps to balance emotions and bring a greater stability.

In Module Two we teach a method of working with the gold point in the chakras. Here, however, we can share a simple meditation focused on the gold seed point in the heart, with the Diamond Points.

Sit or lie down quietly. Imagine simply a point of golden light in your heart. That tiny golden seed of light, arises from, is identical with, the great cosmic energy and information. Be aware of your breath, the inhalation and exhalation. Feel the radiation of that light throughout your being. There is nothing more to do, just focus gently on the light in your heart. Place the hands palm down, one over the other, over the heart chakra, and lie quietly, aware of the rhythm of your breath.

Be sure to complete this with the Diamond Points. Imagine a gold seed point to the right of your body, about 18 inches out from the navel, then the gold point a similar distance below your feet, and to the left of the body and above the head. Repeat the words “Source, Grounding, Activation, Transformation.”

When we work with the gold point, we connect with the cosmos within, and its divine intelligence. We experience our nature as that divine intelligence. As David Goddard puts it in his book The Tower of Alchemy, “”¦the ”˜lead’ of ignorance is sublimated into the ”˜gold’ of illumination.” What he calls the “solar body” “”¦exists as a seed, in potentia, within the heart chakra”¦The seed appears as a small golden flame. In the West, it is sometimes called ”˜the solar drop.’ ”

In this meditation we experience that solar drop, transforming, illuminating, balancing, purifying and strengthening.

Disclaimer. I am not saying this meditation is going to bring you to full enlightenment instantly 🙂 Just that it might open a door into a new experience of yourself. Who knows what can come from focusing on the seed of the cosmos within us?

Golden Light

By | Published:


Here in New Mexico the autumn light is golden, sweet, and brilliantly clear. It illuminates, heightens, pierces. It leads me to reflect on the theme of working with light in the practice of energy work.

Mostly in SourcePoint we work with energy and information, with points and structures. However, when we visualize the points and structures, almost always we work with golden light; we imagine gold points and lines. People, of course, are free to work with whatever colors of light they choose, and often people will see different colors when working with the points. However, over and over, we work with gold: the golden rectangle points, gold points in the chakras, the golden line, the golden egg.

Golden light reminds us of the light of the sun. It enhances and nourishes the life force. Think of it metaphorically, remembering the imagination is a useful avenue to understanding the world of energy. The sun awakens the life inherent in the seed planted deep in the earth. The seed grows toward the light. In working with golden light we awaken the potential for healing, that in us that is oriented to the light, to that information of health which causes us to grow in a balanced way, and equilibrates us when we are out of balance.
