“Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls.”
Thunderbird Rising is shamanic in nature. It is an empowerment amulet invoking the living ether of the elemental universe. This invisible and indivisible spirit, adorned in paint as a Thunderbird, lifts the purified soul into self-adoration. To grow wings. To fly high. To fly far. To soul-travel from star to star. To experience angelic freedom. The Great Creative Spirit is God’s sweet emergence out of the crucible of nature’s duality to dance in the harmonies of triplicity. Bathe yourself in this electric dynamo of ecstatic inspiration willing you into your fullness. Share the gifts of your soul – unique, original & genuine. Be the spark that escapes the pyre of flame & fire to drift off into limitless sky. Cloak yourself in your Thunderbird and reclaim your power.
