Today I saw a butterfly her blue speckled wings glistened in the sunlight the magic of her metamorphosis danced around in the winds.
She flew over the sagebrush and landed on red sandy soil resting awhile opening and closing her wings a silent rhythmic drumbeat sending wave after wave of the knowledge she holds about naturally transforming choosing to grow and heading into the mystery in the passionate pursuit of becoming despite those who would say it’s an impossible dream.
I stood with Butterfly on the sunny hillside until she lifted into the air to fly with graceful ease as if she’d always had wings weaving her way around prickly pear cactus and drifting among the piñon pines.
Not very long ago she had a pillowy oblong body with rows of tiny sticky feet she feasted on leaves flourishing in the beauty of being Caterpillar all the while preparing for the changes to come.
There came a day when she found a sheltering place because it was time according to her inner knowing and the lineage of her species and the seasons and cycles of the earth and the stars.
She created a sacred space for change-making.
Her heart and her spirit the very purpose of her existence were beckoning guiding her steadying her passage through the dissolving of what had been and the creation of her new form and the emergence from the chrysalis under her own power when everything in her knew it was time to warm her wings in the sun and take flight.
Today I am following the path of the butterfly together we can join this dance of the butterflies passionately pursuing the becoming of all we are here to be creating sacred space for transformation sheltering dissolving dismantling what has been honoring the mystery exploring unknown terrain knitting fibers of connection shaping new forms reweaving the web of life within us, between us, and all around.
When it is time according to our inner knowing our ancestors and lineages and the wisdom living in the earth and the stars we’ll open the doorway step through the threshold warm our wings in the sun and fly into the magic of our own metamorphosis into a beautiful, loving world beyond our wildest dreams.
