The SCEPTER OR STAFF is an outer symbol that refers to special powers and forces associated with a kundalini awakening. It is worn by gods, saints, popes and other persons with a (semi) divine status, such as (in ancient times) kings and pharaohs.
Not many people will realize this today, but this SCEPTER OR STAFF represents the spine in which the Divine has awakened. Basically what it is supposed to tell us is that the authority of the person who wears it is given by God and not by men. God rules through this person on earth.
Often, the top of such a STAFF is decorated with a kundalini symbol such as a bird, a serpent’s head, a pinecone or some other item that refers to the pineal gland. In the world of the gods, the STAFF sometimes also possesses specific powers, for example the ability to heal, destroy or change something (all kundalini properties). The classic image of a sorcerer with a magic wand probably originated from these myths of the gods.

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 symbolism 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 many of the paintings below, a STAFF is combined with ‘the sign of the sacred marriage’: two fingers together (2=1).
The message of this is: the kundalini has awakened, and flows through the spinal column, the two polar energy channels have merged into one.
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.
