Fluttering of Butterfly Wings Ripple in My Soul

Desert Butterly Garden Magic

Fluttering wings of dozens of butterflies gently are silently rippling around my energy field as I enter this butterfly haven amid the desert garden.  Mesmerized, I am drawn into their delicate, ephemoral world.  Wings spread with backs to the sun on this cool desert morning act as solar collectors create a luminous display that dazzles my eyes.  I feel as though I am in a fairy kingdom.

This adult stage of the butterfly may only last a week or two although a few species live up to 18 months.  They will lay eggs that become caterpillars the pupate in their woven chrysalis hanging on twigs.  It is here in the chrysalis shell that the caterpillar's structure is broken down and rearranged into the wings, body and legs of the adult butterfly.  One of Nature's miracles of transformation.

This butterfly magic evokes the heart of the mystical child that lives within.  Hope softly unfurls in a spontaneous flutter inside by being.   Entranced, I can't help but smile.

Butterflies move with grace and eloquence.  And inspire us to move with flow through the turns and shifts of Life that mold us into ever more refined expressions of our soul's presence.  May we emerge from our transitions as luminously as the butterfly.
