Lara’s most exciting body of work thus far, FLIGHT expresses the power of freedom and healing that is realised through our connection to a bird spirit animal.
In times of grief, despair, or illness, we are often repeatedly visited by a ‘spirit’ bird. Like a friend that pops in and keeps you in check, the spirit bird brings energy, medicine and meaning. Usually an Australian native species, the spirit bird encourages strength and liberation, inspires us to focus on our unique qualities and kindles both beginnings and endings.
Symbolising acceptance and helping us to let go, our spirit bird is sometimes also referred to as a ‘medicine bird’. It connects the spirit with the earth and thus, ‘as above, so below’.
