"First Awakening": An Explanation

by James Barton

"First Awakening" is my first attempt at creating an acrylic abstract. It's composition is based on my sketchy understanding of sacred geometry and the esoteric anatomy of the human microcosm.

It is a symbolic representation of the first spiritual impulse in someone-a life changing event. The picture is a snap shot of a dynamic life changing process.

The red band at the bottom corresponds with the physical body and the etheric/instincts. The orange band corresponds with the emotional/dream/astral body and the yellow corresponds with the mental/intellectual body. The green border is like the "forest" of outer life but the focus of the picture is within oneself.

The spiral is blue symbolizing a higher "alien" impulse from the viewpoint of the lower self. The spiral is based on what is called the Golden Spiral using mathematics found in nature connected with the fibonacci sequence. The exact placement of the spiral is also determined by sacred geometry. It is placed 'not at the top of the yellow band' of intellect symbolizing the fact that a highly developed intellect is not necessary for spiritual vision to unfold.

The white cross of light symbolizes divine Grace. Apart from the "forest of the outside world" the green border can also represent the archetypal body-that part which survives death and around which another "lower self" (ie the physical/emotional and intelectual bodies) forms at the start of the next incarnation.

Did the white light Grace cause the blue spiral impulse or did the blue light impulse reveal and radiate the white light Grace? That is the central question of the painting.

To enhance the positive vibrational effect of the art and to help the creative process I did some meditation techniques before I started painting to help me to atune to benevolent forces etc.

Later the painting was blessed and dedicated to the purpose of helping people have a first spiritual awakening. A holy incense was burnt near the painting leaving particles of sacred ash on the canvas.

What do you think of the painting? Criticism and comments welcome. What feelings does the picture invoke in you? What sacred geometry principles and archetypal symbols could I have used to help a first spiritual awakening in a 'ripe for change' materialistic person? Does your view of the subtle bodies that make up the human microcosm differ from that portrayed in the picture?
