The peacock

  1. 1. The Peacock<br />Peacocks are considered celestial animals, containing the entire cosmos in their tail (sun, moon, stars, and the planets).<br />To early Christians, the peacock symbolized immortality, resurrection, and the exchanging of the earthly body for a spiritually perfect body in heaven.<br />It is often associated with the Tree of Life and the Garden of Eden. It has been compared to and was once considered close cousin of the mythical phoenix, which engulfed itself in flames at the end of its lifespan and was immediately reborn from the ashes (think Fawkes in Harry Potter). <br />More generally, it means beauty, knowledge, omniscience, and perfection through the pursuit of a godly life.<br />Peacocks are a symbol of focusing on the positive in life — they are proud of their beautiful feathers instead of dwelling on their ugly feet.<br />
  2. 2. Contemplate the powers of the Peacock when you need more vibrancy and vitality in your life. <br />The Peacock can also help you on your spiritual Path, and breath new life into your walk of faith. <br />The Peacock can rejuvenate self-esteem levels too. If you’re feeling “blah” and blue, imagine the glorious, techno-color display the Peacock provides. <br />This puts us in a proper mood to embrace your own nobility. In no time, you’ll be walking tall and proud as a Peacock too! <br />
