In the place of its safety, wrapped in the twigs and warmth of a place very familiar, the Phoenix, in all its beauty and grandeur burns ferociously. Char, ash, soot, remnants of colours and feathers that soared high up in the skies. But in a moment, these sooty remnants collide in a burst of colours and limbs and feathers; renewed glide, reinvigorated sight -piercingly accurate, vivid shades of leafy green and silver grey. Life is reborn, renewed and relived even better only when it goes through ferocious fire. Burn, char and be reborn.

Breathe…It’s going to be alright.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Exhale. Slowly. Deeply. Trust in the timing of your Creator to orchestrate your journey on. Trust in the inherent force swirling inside of you to power you on, as you trod towards your dreams and arrive at your journey’s end. Exhale. Slowly. Deeply. Trust.
