The Phoenix Soul. We are truth-speakers, heart-on-our-sleevers, love-believers. You are. I am. We are The Phoenix Soul (indie digital magazine & community).
The Phoenix Soul:
Our collective voice is crying out. We are roaring with trembling truth. Voices are spilling out in courtrooms, on social media, in the quiet chambers of our own hearts and homes.
We are sacred. Even when we are not treated so. We are sacred. Even when we are conditioned not to believe so. Our voices matter, when we rage, we weep, we celebrate. We matter, in our heldbreath hurts and our shouts of joy.

The Phoenix Soul: Sacred Voice
Sweet soul, you are welcome here, in your weary-heart tenderness, in your raging never-agains, in your long-buried secrets coming to light, in your held-breath hurts and your won’t-give-up healing. You are welcome at this virtual bonfire, a sanctuary of color and truth and compassion where you are seen. Heard. Believed. Trusted. Loved. Honored. Supported.
Are you ready to rise? To lift your sacred voice? To whispersingshout your gut-deep truth? To call back to your hurt self, your healing self—to croon compassion to every holy atom of you, every shimmer of your being? Oh, love—and if you struggle to see your worth, if your words are trapped in your throat, if you need help hearing your sacred voice . . . let us sing your song back to you. Let us be your lantern in the dark. Let us walk through the shadows together. Let us whisper love and compassion to one another. We are here for you.
Step into the circle, where we celebrate both our individuality and our oneness as a soul-family. Let’s raise our sacred voices . . . together.
