Birdlight: International Best Seller

BIRDLIGHT Freeing Your Authentic Creativity

 

My heartfelt thanks to all who have supported the highly successful launch of Birdlight: Freeing Your Authentic Creativity!

On Tuesday, the book reached #1 in three categories on Amazon.ca, and it hit the Best Seller List in the U.S., making it an International Best Seller within hours of its launch. By Wednesday morning, Birdlight had broken the top 50 of all books (in all categories) sold on Kindle in Canada, at #35.

I share this news in gratitude for the beautiful communities this work has led me to! I could not have done this without you.

This book came to me in an hour of darkness. It came as a series of thoughts giving way to light, a series of birds, a gift, not just for me, but for others like me navigating obstacles in the creative process.

We are, every one of us, powerful creators, and each day we have an opportunity to create by design. This book frees you to do just that.

One of my great joys in bringing Birdlight into form has been engaging with other creative souls who have each brought their own artistry and unique gifts to the work. Once a book is in print, there is no such thing as a “solo artist” behind it. This was a team effort.

To community and artistry, and to singing the song you came to sing.

Blessings,

robin-blackburn-mcbride

New Vision

039

Two weeks ago, on a chilly spring drive from Toronto to Ottawa, I made the familiar journey out along Highway 7: last year’s high brown grasses still swaying, bare trees tight with their shy buds, and the sky a-swirl with birds. Countless crows and brown birds flapped in the blue, while above them raptors soared on whatever thermals they could find. In the past when I’d studied those larger creatures as they’d ascended into specks, they’d seemed like eagles to me.

Now I know better.

When I arrived at a Gatineau motel at dusk, raptors still glided effortlessly through my mind. I recalled a scene years ago in New Mexico, sitting out at the edge of the Taos Pueblo lands where I’d been enchanted by that same  particular species of high-flier. At the time I’d recognized them by sight, and not by name.

I had gathered up their feathers, briefly mislabelling them as “hawk”. On a twilight walk I’d discovered a whole flock perched silently in a towering birch tree. The eerie shock of beholding twenty pairs of massive shoulders, folded wings, and staring eyes, had left me wondering.

The world delivers messages to us all the time. This was one of those times when I did my best to receive.

I wonder if it’s been like that for you.

Are you looking to the world for messages?

Do you long for greater fulfillment?

Do you seek to rise above the old downward pull of the mundane, and soar to new places and beautiful experiences? Do you long for something more because… time’s passing?

That’s exactly how I felt when I collected those feathers in Taos.

In truth, so many wonders were about to occur in my life. Deep down, my intuition knew it – but the rest of me had NO idea of the scope of what lay ahead.

A jump for joy would have been in order; yet I was too confused at the time to celebrate. And I was scared.

Later, a friend identified my mysterious findings. She could tell the feathers by their silver undersides: “Vulture,” she said. “Birds of transformation.” And then she added brightly, “They pick the bones clean.”

There was my message.

It would take years to fully process the significance.

My encounter in Taos was both unsettling and charged with Life. I felt strangely elated. The vulture sightings led me to learn more deeply about the significance of that particular species of bird, as I am inclined to read augurs creatively when nature speaks. Undoubtedly, it’s why I’ve written a whole book on the connection between birds and heeding one’s true calling – it’s a book to help guide you in answering your call to create from your clear sense of mission, passion, and joy. Birdlight: Freeing Your Authentic Creativity launches later this month, on Tuesday, May 31st.

What I learned about the vulture years ago, is how it’s often misinterpreted as a foreboding animal. People associate it too narrowly and literally with death, when the animal is really a harbinger of the rebirth and renewal that accompany releasing one state of being for another. It symbolizes purification, and suggests both expansion and growth.

The vulture symbolizes New Vision.

One of the things that came to me as I embraced transformation in my own life was the discovery of a clear, deep calling to help others do the same. I couldn’t have made the changes I made without receiving the help of powerful coaches and guides along the way.

A Life Coach in Transformation, I now have years of study, training with the best in the field, and experience in supporting people just like you transform and say YES to becoming who they truly long to be. It was from this new and higher place that Birdlight came to me: a book in seven birds. For you.

Curiously, the vulture is not among them.

I’ll simply have to write a sequel.

To Your Vision!
