Book Details

Originally delivered as a lecture in English and Cantonese to a general audience at the Hong Kong City Hall on November 6, 2001, the first half of the book gives an overview of the history of alchemy and spiritual movements. It takes a look at the transformative power of gemstones and shows an individual how to find stones with the most positive influences.

The second half of the book goes deeper and explains how astrology influences a person’s psychology and personality. It also presents alchemy as a metaphor for yoga and transcendental realization, supported by references from ancient Sanskrit texts. Fascinating and informative.

“Wow, an amazing read! Alchemy, gemstones, the planets and sublime literary mastery. This book clearly stimulates you to question your spiritual philosophy. Truly from the invisible to the visible, provocatively addressing the magic and science of alchemy. I recommend Sravaniya and her teachings for anybody on a spiritual quest. A toolbox must have.”
- Claire Graham, Psychic & Medium

“We live at such an exciting time on our planet when the teachings of quantum mechanics and our understanding of energy, frequencies and vibration enable us to have a clearer understanding of what the ancient teachings have tried to tell us. We also have the freedom to explore and to think for ourselves.

As we move from the old paradigm of classical physics with its clockwork mechanistic view of the nature of reality, we begin to comprehend what the ancient teachings and traditions knew so well: All is energy and it is vibrating at different frequencies; that everything is connected to everything else and therefore influenced by everything else.

Sravaniya DiPecoraro's excellent book shows us how, as we become aware of these energies and the properties and frequencies of the reality around us, we can harness them to empower us and enhance our lives. Instead of trying to subdue nature or to resist it, we can work in a spirit of cooperation and thus make our lives so much more harmonious.

A truly insightful and informative book.”
