One of my favorite creatures on the earth is the butterfly! When I was a little girl, I remember being fascinated while watching fuzzy little caterpillars slowly crawling to find nourishment. It has, since then, always been a captivating process to watch the caterpillar move from it’s nourishment phase into a protective chrysalis, and eventually into an emergent butterfly. The butterfly so beautifully represents transformation! This life cycle of the butterfly can bring us a message through our own cycles of life. Take a moment to see what phase you are in at this time in your life, look for it’s lesson, and honor yourself fully for where you are.
Phase 1: Birth (For humans, this can represent an initial awakening or the beginning of a new concept or life experience. It can also represent a rebirth and flourishing after a past decline.)
Phase 2: Nourishment, Growth, and Preparation (Humans go through a similar experience as we nourish ourselves in mind, body, spirit, heart, and relationships. We find what builds and strengthens us to grow and evolve in our life experiences.)
Phase 3: Protection (Our own time of cocooning is necessary to keep us safe and protect us from outside influences. In order to go through some of our most essential growth, being still and reflecting from within can be our ultimate strength.)
Phase 4: Transformation and Renewal (This can be one of the most intriguing processes while the old parts of us and old experiences contribute to the ultimate awakening and transformation into something that is beyond captivating and capable!)
Phase 5: Break Free from the Cocoon (Recognizing the new shifts and gifts we have gained through transformation, we are stronger and more capable to emerge into a greater mission. It is time to spread our wings and fly!)
No matter where you are at in you life cycle, just remember each stage is equally necessary and important.
