This painting shows the transformational power of connecting with the darkness in your womb, where deep personal and collective trauma is stored. It may feel like falling into a black hole, being burned by fire, and you might even have the feeling of facing death. But as the ancient stories tell us; when the fire started to consume the phoenix, instead of suffering, she decided to dance in the flames. Eventually, the fire reduced the bird to ashes and she rose into a bright new phoenix with even more strength. The ending was only the beginning of something greater than what she ever thought possible. It was a rebirth, an inititiation into a state of higher consciousness.
