The story of the Black Swan Temple
The Temple received it’s name when founder Heather Salmon was ordained as an Essene Minister in 2005 and was gifted two Black Swan statues. Clearly a sign, the Black Swan has several connotations.
First there is the children’s story of the ugly duckling. You may recall that there was a among them a black swan who didn’t know she was a swan but thought that she was an ugly duckling as all of the rest of the ducks looked all same. Then one day, the “ugly duckling” grew up and discovered that she wasn’t an ugly duckling at all, but a beautiful swan! This is a beautiful metaphor for the transformation that is created on our path of Awakening.
There is also the Black Swan “Theory” that is used to describe “an unpredictable event that defies prediction” and has a major impact! These events are usually characterized by “hindsight bias” meaning that there is a tendency to believe that the event was predictable based on knowledge gained after the event occurred. As we Awaken we are able to utilize our higher senses and abilities to create what might seem like the “miraculous.” A Course in Miracles states that miracles are merely “corrections” for things that we erroneously thought we “true.” It is the mission of the Black Swan Temple to inspire greatness and a sustainable, just and peaceful human presence on earth.
The third aspect of the Black Swan comes from the Egyptian pantheon. On 10/10/10 Black Swan Temple founder Heather Salmon was ordained into the Temple of Isis and became a priestess of Nuit, Isis and Hathor. Nuit/Nut is associated with the night sky and Isis, her daughter, is the winged goddess of 10,000 names.
The Black Swan Temple is dedicated to helping others discover their true and divine beauty and nature and to assisting in the transformation of HUmanity through transformational Black Swan Events!
