Three Stages Until Lasting Freedom

The robin symbolizes growth and rebirth of the spirit. Her red breast symbolizes the life force within. She is perfect for teaching us how to grow beyond where we are and move into a joyful life. Growth does not usually occur overnight; rather it is a slow, challenging process. It is discouraging when the desired results do not manifest immediately. Stick with it, however, and hold the happiness of the robin's song in your heart and mind. Approach life with an open heart, and all the growth and change you crave will come to you in time!

TRANSITIONing
