Soror Mystica

Post  solomon levi on Wed Dec 31, 2008 2:03 pm

Greetings.
I was wondering about the Soror Mystica.
Is this a literal person, a partner that you do alchemy with?
Or is it a term of endearment for nature or spirit or something?
Is there a process or ritual to becoming soror/frater mysticas?
Is it sexual alchemy or something more?

What are your thoughts/experiences on this?

From what I've (quickly) gathered I think it's more of a Jungian concept...I had never seen this phrase before and tried to find some mention of it earlier then the last century and couldn't. Maybe you've had better luck then I... are there any other places that it is mentioned?

This is a BIG ? for aeons. Only Flamel mentioned it, and without anything more. And maybe de Gabalis. I think the best is to have "inner" and "outer" too. That real alchemist boasted she too.

The words 'Soror Mystica' could very well have Rosicrucian roots. Words such as 'soror' and 'frater' express equality and therefore it seems to indicate that it indeed concerns a real woman who also studies the mystical Art while being part of the same society or is a spouse.

Well, the little I know of it is references to Flamel and Pernelle and the images in
the Mutus Liber - the male and female partners working together to attain the
great work.
But what we know of Flamel from Fulcanelli led me to consider that there may be some
other meaning, not so simple as "the alchemist's wife" or whatever.
And i can see the obvious connections with what people call sexual alchemy.

But I'm really pondering this because relationships fascinate me, and I'm curious
how alchemical ones would work.
I considered my last partner as my soror mystica.
I once saw her turn venus into mars right before my eyes....
she threw her engagement ring at me. Tongue
(A little alchemical humor).

That's pretty funny (and a little sad) Solomon.

Thinking on it a little more I might venture a guess that it relates to animated mercury (in the philosophical sense)...

Well, i suppose that a lot of sorors would not throw back ring with a big brilliant. Sad

Sure there are woman striving and urging for 'Gold' , and not only function as a tool.
alto i cant speak for all of course.

J.G Bennet wrote a little book about the context: Sex

Solo remember what Gurdjieff said about the sex centre and the retort.
