Now we can concentrate on the Fire in the Soul, moving from the personality and energies of the personal unconscious to the infinite resources of the collective unconscious and the transpersonal self. Fermentation is a 2 part operation. First comes Putrefaction, where matter is allowed to rot and decompose, then comes the infusion of digesting bacteria and the dead material seems to come back to life by changing its fundamental nature. This is called Spiritization, which is marked by the iridescent film call “the Peacock’s Tail.”
Psychologically, the expired product of conjunction is exposed to the heated moisture of our deepest and most clinging psychic components, the psychological manure in which most of us wallow. The Alchemist realizes that s/he is still human as s/he realizes their inherent deficiencies that initiates a mortification and decomposition of ego and frequently mental depression, the extinction of all interest in life – The Dark Night of the Soul. One must go through it to exit into the White Light of the Other Side.
What Not to Do: Historically, many Alchemist created, discovered, experimented, wrote about and refined hallucinogenic plants to assist them in the Fermentation phase. Considering the current legal and social problems, not to mention the impurities one will find in street products, illegal substances are not recommended, nor are they necessary for Spiritual Enlightenment.
