It was in the ashes that she found her phoenix. And boy was it worth the wait.– Rebecca Campbell, Rise Sister Rise
Once Upon A Time
there was a magnificent bird called the Phoenix. At the crack of dawn the mighty creature would sing an enchanting song so beautiful that the sun god would stop his chariot in the sky to listen.
At the end of its life, the Phoenix would build its own funeral bonfire with the finest herbs and spices. It would then light itself on fire, and slowly burn to ashes. From the embers, the Phoenix would rise again, even more beautiful and powerful than before.
The Phoenix teaches us to sing the authentic song of the Self. When we trust our inner voice and surrender to the Universe, our creative energy flows. We expand and shine with the vibrant light of the Sun.
You may be an artist, yogi, dancer or mother. Whatever you do in life, only you can do it the way you do. Trust your voice, and the unique way creativity flows through you. Because this is your gift to the world!
The Phoenix also teaches us to release what no longer serves us. As the great bird must go through the fire to be reborn from the ashes, we too must let old stories die in order to make space for transformative change.
