The Phoenix is a mythical bird that consciously consumes itself in flames to be reborn new from its ashes. The phoenix is the symbol of the transformation of human consciousness and our creative spirit that each of us must undergo to one degree or another to create what we desire. The phoenix myth is in many ways the doorway to our freedom as beings of unlimited creativity to create the reality we choose. It provides a key understanding of the creative process. Something old must be destroyed and transformed to make room for the new. So there will always be a sacrifice of something. The question is whether or not we hold onto what needs to be sacrificed.

  1. Pauline, great image and story. We all have our challenges and the take away for me is that, no matter what, we can learn and recreate ourselves in a way that better reflects our inner consciousness. the trick is to do it with integrity so we really do find and reflect that inner truth. I love it. Thank you.

  2. I have kept returning to this image and also your next one of feathers. I love the colour and strength in these creations and their colours perfectly represent the meaning of Phoenix (rising from the flames) and Feathers – from one feather to many birds flying free and never disappearing. I am in awe at the creations you have made with the overlays as if you have used a stencil to cut out the shapes. I love them.
