If you have ever felt like a phoenix rising from the ashes, then you will see a lot of symbolism. The level of the lake is flat, like the flatline of a heart monitor. The old life lies behind (the rocks in the lower right). The rising elevations of the mountains hint at the power and strength of the new life, versus the flatline. There is fog on the water, signifying the morning of a new day. The fog also acts as a cover for the phoenix, as it seeks a safe direction to start its journey. Of the four tail feathers, two are peacock-like, one of which resembles a human eye, which serves to remind us of where we have been and what we have learned, so that we can take part willingly in the transformational process of renewal.
