This is from my christian phase in my mid to late twenties. The 'hair-rays' are stylized, compared to what I actually saw in my internal vision, which was a much more serpentine, moving, buzzing-with-energy sort of thing. What I was experiencing was a sort of prayer-dance. But I did my best to capture my experience using colored pencils and a primitive un-developed drawing ability. Sigh.
Something I find interesting about this piece is that Jesus, although levitating, appears over a lake with the sun in the background. I almost always visualized Christ, whether intentionally or unintentionally, in a natural setting. He is a sort of nature-god to me.
I've been noticing in my re-reading of the medieval mystics that much of what they say mirrors the old pagan hymns. For example, Julian of Norwich writes, "In this first revelation of our Lord I saw in my understanding six things. The first is the tokens of his blessed Passion, and the plentiful shedding of his precious blood. The second is the virgin who is his beloved mother. The third is the blessed divinity, that always was and is and ever shall be, almighty, all wisdom and all love. The fourth is everything which he has made; it is great and lovely and good." She goes on to write that the fifth and sixth things are that God has made everything from Love, and that God is everything that is good.
These first four things are exactly the same as the things held sacred in the old pagan systems, such as romuva: 1) blood and/or the color red, 2) the goddess/virgin/ lady, 3) 'divinity': light and wisdom, and 4) creation, the natural world. Having this realization helps me to read these mystics very differently and helpfully.
I'm sure there must be others who are already reading the mystics this way, but for me, it is a 'revelation,' my one private 'showing,' just as that prayer-experience which I 'drew' above was something unique in my experience at the time, something I had not 'heard of,' and felt secretive about for a long time.
I finally showed it to one of my theology professors, along with this quote (2 Cor 3:18), which was for me the meaning of this image at the time: "And we all with unveiled faces, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness, from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
