🎨 Below it’s my pleasure to include a selection of 33 paintings I did between circa 2010 and 2022 that, in retrospect—to my eye anyway—clearly depict different aspects of the Phoenix Phenomenon brought to light by the paradigm-shaking research of Jason Breshears.
😱 The uncanny irony, of course, is that I’d never so much as heard of the Phoenix Phenomenon when I painted any of these pieces. Yet, like Richard Dreyfuss obsessively building the Devils Tower with mashed potatoes in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, I returned to this one motif OVER and OVER over the years. In fact, if you check out my full portfolio, you’ll so many more pieces similar to these.
👽 And no, the the choice of 33 isn’t random. Though I’m NOT a Freemason and am highly suspicious of anything to do with such “lodges,” it’s a fact that the 33rd degree of Freemasonry references the Phoenix Phenomenon, described in Gnostic texts as the timekeeping force that keeps the Archons in check.
Plus, as a bonus bizarreness, in a way that screams you can’t make this stuff up (or CAN you?), there’s this … Note the name of my healing center established all the way back in 2004 …
“Sol Luckman’s strikingly inspired art shines proudly on the covers of all three of my books published by Inner Traditions (SHAMANIC TRANSFORMATIONS, THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM, SHAMANIC HEALING). His evocative images, bright unapologetic colors and natural flowing forms complement my writings beautifully and open readers to the primeval mystery of the ageless shamanism.” —Izthak Beery, Publisher, Shamanportal.org

Building on this deep dive into lucid dreaming, parallel universes and Hindu mysticism, Sol’s new novel, CALI THE DESTROYER—a page-turner of a sci-fi tale set in an Orwellian future seeded in the dystopian present that radically rewrites Gnosticism as well as the origins of the earth and humanity—was selected as Winner of the 2022 NYC Big Book Award and 2022 National Indie Excellence Award for Visionary Fiction, Silver Medalist for Visionary Fiction in the 2022 Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Contest, Finalist in both the New Age and Visionary Fiction categories of the 2021 International Book Awards, Finalist in both the Paranormal/Supernatural and Fantasy categories of the 2022 IAN Book of the Year Awards, and Distinguished Favorite for Audio Fiction in the 2022 NYC Big Book Awards.
