Happy Birthday to my sister. She went Home before the rest of us. But I know she can still hear me. And feel us.
On this, a Special Occasion, we’ve gone with our designated-for-that-reason stack.
“Lyrebird ~ 1 ~ Genetic Memory
Lyrebird supports the concept of genetic memory through its ability to remember the forest sounds of over 200 years ago. Flawlessly mimicking repetitious sound, the older birds pass on to their young the sounds they were taught by their parents, thus literally handing-on sacred lineal knowledge to the next generation. The young instinctively learn the sounds almost as if they are hearing them through their Ancestor’s ears.
Within every individual cell that collectively makes us whole, resides the keys to the unlocking of the memory of past experiences passed from one generation to the next. Such memory is inherited and genetic in nature.
Genetic memory represents all that we have ever been. It embodies all that we have ever experienced, all that we have ever encountered, and all that we have ever understood. It represents all that our body inherently recognises without explanation; knowledge that cannot be justified or rationalised. It is a fair argument, therefore, that our body remembers the memories of everything ever witnessed by us since the beginning of time.
If the Lyrebird has flaunted his way into your cards today, you are being primed for a time of great remembering. The Ancestors are calling to you from the Void to remember a connection shared or a lifetime had in a period long ago. Such effort will provide deeper understanding of the relationships and responsibilities you have now, enabling you to put them into context, thus affording you greater clarity and personal direction.”

are mostly just about how, we are all part of each other. Like the Lyrebird, we retain parts of our loved ones when they no longer are physically with us, our memories are never gone. And neither, really, are any of us.
With that in mind, I’ll always treasure the birthdays my sister and I shared, but it’s probably time now, for me to move forward (ever spiraling upwards), and build a new way to celebrate on my own.
Probably. I’ll keep you posted.
