MEANING: Transformation, Next Step, Spiritual Growth
Butterfly People are learning to look beyond the physical realm and progress into the spiritual realm, which challenges you to move your physical body around the planet as a "spiritual being" rather than a "human being." Butterfly is the only living organism capable of changing its entire genetic structure (DNA) from caterpillar to butterfly.
Butterfly represents the spirit changing and evolving to an ascended level of consciousness. The power that Butterfly holds is the power of air, which rules the mind and mental processes.
Butterfly goes through 5 changes in the transformation process.
- 1) The egg stage represents the beginning of change.
- 2) The larvae stage represents the stage of creativity.
- 3) The cocoon stage represents the stage of going "within" to mature and cultivate the creative idea.
- 4) The transformation stage represents the breaking of the cocoon, stage of birth and coming into your own.
- 5) The final stage is application and sharing what you have created.
When Butterfly Medicine grabs your attention it is asking you to embrace your own ability to transform your Life. It takes courage to transform your Life because it means letting go of things that no longer serve you to your Highest Good and change can be scary when confronted with the unknown.
When Butterfly Medicine appears in front of you, this means you are ready for the transformation process to begin. You may be so ready that you actually manifested a Butterfly to appear as to remind you of your heart's desire.
Butterfly's message is about taking that next step in your transformation process. Take note of the steps of transformation and let the steps guide you along your spiritual progression path. Remember, if Butterfly has crossed your path, you are ready to change in a big way and the transformation process has already begun.
