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.
