A few weeks back I offered to relay some insights into the spiritual meaning of Butterfly, and a bunch my followers said, “yes, please!” It took longer to put together than I had anticipated. But as it happens, the timing (I posted to YouTube just before the Winter Solstice) feels perfect.
I have to admit, the holiday season is not my favorite time of year. It’s dark, and where I live in the UP of Michigan it can get brutally cold. (For instance, I just got back from walking my dog in -10° weather – brrr!)
But what I do LOVE about it is the promise it brings: More Light and more Life about to enter the world!
Butterflies have a number of symbolic meanings. Chief among them is that of transformation.
And specifically, spiritual transformation—just like the Winter Solstice season!
And that is the aspect of Butterfly I was guided to focus on in this video. I won’t give it all away, except to say I’m not surprised it took Butterfly a while to come forward: a big part of her message is to bring awareness to the PROCESS of awakening as a progression that unfolds over time.
Because if you’re like me, it’s easy to get impatient. You have a vision, and you want it to happen NOW. And it gets frustrating when it doesn’t—especially when you work so hard to bring your dreams into fruition only to find yourself again and again seemingly back on square one and feeling like your life is just a series of startings-over.
The Butterfly animal guide reminds us that transformation happens in stages, and these stages take time.
Each stage also has its own lessons to learn. But, each stage prepares us for the next one, until eventually we really are able to joyously take flight on those beautiful wings we’ve worked so hard to grow.
If the Butterfly power animal resonates with you, and especially if you or others you know are on the verge of or in the midst of a spiritual transformation, I encourage you to take a listen. Butterfly is as wise as she is beautiful; I gained a lot of insight into the process of awakening and how to move through it with grace by listening to what she has to teach. I hope you do, too.
