Before getting power

Almost everyone knows the story about Phoenix, who has risen from his own ashes. There are many images of this fascinating creature, always full of gold and fire. I have always admired the power and courage hidden in them as I have always doubted that I would be able to do such a thing.

Trying to do so, I was brought to the thoughts of what was happening just before the Phoenix burnt and was born again. How much he was afraid when the hot Inferno flames flashed around him?

And the wisdom, born from my picture, is quite similar to the many that we know from movies and books. Being afraid is not a reason for shame. Being afraid doesn’t mean you cannot achieve a big goal. You may be afraid but you have to go on to finish what has been started either by you or by the universe.

Hopefully my picture helps me to take the fear into my hand and enter the rebirth flames together. And maybe it also helps some of you πŸ˜ƒ

With love, Ivana

  1. I have felt this many times in my life before a transformation occurs. It can be a painful journey but always has led me to a better place on the end. When my Dad died I made a fabric and metal embroidered phoenix for my mum. She went through a complete rebirth and that picture still amazes me when I look at it even now 24 years later. It’s as if the phoenix in the picture is alive and bursting out of the flames with an energy all of it’s own.
