When you see The Phoenix it means the doorway to your freedom as a being of unlimited creativity to create the reality you choose, is open. The Phoenix is symbolic of the sun, which dies in setting each night only to be reborn in rising the next morning. It represents transformation, death, and rebirth in its fire.
The Phoenix bird is an ancient myth that refers to your creative spirit and the free will and choice you possess to recreate yourself. It is the story of your creative energy being made manifest in physical form only to die to that form and be reborn in some new form. As long as you see yourself as a human being who is born, lives and dies, you will miss the power of The Phoenix. However, if you see yourself as your conscious awareness and begin to observe that awareness, you will see that your awareness never changes. What changes is the form or filter that you use to experience as your reality.
Across all cultures, there is some version of The Phoenix, and it always tells a story of transformation. The Phoenix is a symbol of rising out of the ashes/darkness and into the light, the result is complete metamorphosis.
Message from the book
The Phoenix as both Ally and Challenger.
The Phoenix appears as your Ally to celebrate your journey and to ensure your ultimate success. This is true even if it appears that you have just passed through a metaphorical experience of death or are currently enduring a perception of failure in your life.
Death and rebirth are related when you enter the realm of the Phoenix. Seen in this light, nothing truly dies, but rather changes from one ending directly into new beginnings. The Phoenix is constantly reinventing itself and rises up whole and new and even more powerful with every death it experiences. This could signal an end of a relationship – or of a dynamic within one – or an end of a job or project.
Perhaps no failure is involved, but it is time for a complete overhaul of your circumstances. You may be tired of what you are doing, or you may know intuitively that it is time to move on and try something new. Whatever the case, the death of the old and a celebration of new life are called for! Whatever you do now will indeed be a successful endeavour, for a rebirth is imminent!
When the Phoenix challenges you, it is really just a gentle reminder to let go and let what doesn’t work fall away. Maybe you are not allowing things to change because you are more comfortable with the familiar, even if you know that it’s not the best you could create for yourself.
Fear of change is a crippling experience, as it works against Nature itself. The task at hand is to allow for an ending, as it is timely and right that you do so for the highest good of all. In surrendering to the fundamental purposeful change, you will most definitely find yourself in better circumstances. The action needed is allowing. A rebirth is assured. ~ Colette Baron-Reid
“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one. ”
~ Marianne Williamson
