Throughout the ages there have always been initiates, artists and mystics who knew that Jesus was not born as ‘the Son of God’, but had experienced a kundalini awakening, after which he was one with his Divine Father. The gospel writers have hidden this spiritual truth in their texts in inventive ways, including the use of imagery and wordplay (see my books). Because of the rigid attitude of the church, the truth could not be spoken aloud, but underground, through esoteric groups such as the Freemasons, it found its way onto the canvas.

In Christian paintings, the IRIS is used as a secret symbol for the pineal gland. The shape of the flower makes her very suitable for this, and the Greek goddess IRIS is a personification of the kundalini energy. Seemingly careless, this flower is placed somewhere in the foreground or background, in a setting with Jesus and/or other saints. Often in the color dark blue or purple, the color of the energy of the sixth chakra (indigo).

THE SIGN OF THE SACRED MARRIAGE (two fingers together: 2=1) is incorporated in many paintings, in one form or another, often in combination with other esoteric symbolism. This hand gesture refers to a fusion of the polar energies/duality, and with this to a process of kundalini awakening.
