Mystical Fire Bird born of Sacred Flame. The Phoenix (also known as the Garuda or Sunbird) is said to have been the only living creature that was allowed to fly into Paradise. Sacred to the sun, it was believed to live on the wing, having a lifespan of 500 to 1000 years. Only one Phoenix was alive at any one time and on the death of its parent, a splendid new bird was born through Star Fire and from Sacred Flame. The Phoenix had the sweetest song of all the birds and its tears had immense healing properties. The Phoenix, manifests the eternal cycle of time and existence, symbolising the importance of old endings and new beginnings, with the extra element of starting each rebirth at a higher level.
