Butterfly – Spirit Animal 

A butterfly fluttered into my life yesterday, twice and then again today. It’s summer and you could say it’s common to see these little fairy winged beauties everywhere. No big deal, right? And maybe you would even say that I have become over aware and try to see a sign in everything, as if making something out of nothing. I’ve considered it and thought so myself at first but I know that it isn’t so and I know that I’m guided by intuition and that I’m meant to see those signs. It was late afternoon yesterday as I stepped out into the front yard to check on my newly planted sunflowers. They’ve undergone a little shock being transplanted and losing some of their roots, but there tough and luckily they are hanging in there for me. I was out for maybe 20 seconds, so not long at all as the huge yellow butterfly flew into the yard. Still no big deal, but it flew straight towards me and started to circle me. Over and over, it flew around me as I slowly stretched my arms out in front of me. I was hoping it would land on me, but it didn’t and eventually flew off into the yard again. It stayed close and after watching for awhile I went back inside. 

Later on, during the evening hours I went back outside to water. Not thinking anything about it, I had long forgotten about the butterfly incident, let alone that it could be a potential messenger from my spirit animals. It never crossed my mind and apparently I had written the whole incident off to coincidence, it being summertime. And then it happened again and the butterfly reappeared soon after I entered the yard. And again it wasn’t the usual flutter by, but the rather unusual behavior as if it was trying to catch my attention and bring awareness to something. I would have missed it all together had it not come back for a second time. This was not normal and I went to research if butterflies could be spirit messengers. No surprise that they were and within a short time a lizard came into my life, then a caterpillar and now a beautiful yellow butterfly. Here is what I found out.
“Unquestionably embrace what is being offered right now. Accept the changes in your life” Butterfly
Further it was said that if a butterfly has fluttered into your life that massive changes are afoot. (Further proof of what I already know and feel) The physical transformation of energy around you is taking root and may expand in ways that surprise you. (I’m ready) Release any expectation you might have about the outcome and try not to control it. Simply let it flow through you and keep the faith. (Done)

You may also be reminded to get up and move. Dance brings sweetness and joy to our life’s. Further we are reminded that we are on a long journey of the soul. We encounter endless turns, shifts and conditions that help us morph into ever finer beings. 
At our soul journeys end we are inevitably changed and not at all the same as when we started on the path. 
Today on the trail another butterfly came fluttering into my life and stayed for awhile. And today I got up to move and danced along a mountain ridge. 



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO
