The cycle of the butterfly in and of itself holds spiritual teaching and insight for us.
Birthed from an egg the butterfly lives it's early life as a caterpillar.
It then retreats within the pupa or chrysalis where it undergoes a transformation, and finally, when it leaves the chrysalis it is reborn as a beautiful winged butterfly.
The magnificent life of the butterfly closely mirrors the process of spiritual transformation... A reminder that we each have the ability to be reborn through going within. Learn more about the spiritual meaning of butterflies and what they mean for you. #signs #nature #beautiful
The magnificent life of the butterfly closely mirrors the process of spiritual transformation as we each have the possibility to be reborn through going within.
By retreating from the world into our inner being, surrounding ourselves in cocoons of prayer, meditation, spiritual books and courses, we're ready at some point to emerge. Awakened and ready to fly, we're transformed and reborn into an entirely new way of being.
In addition to how they live their miraculous life, butterflies don't live long. They typically only live for a few weeks or months at the longest, which in and of itself offers more guidance for us. The guidance that life is short. Even for humanity time moves quickly, and so the butterfly with its magnificent and yet short life reminds us to enjoy the here and now.
I also like to think that the transformation of the butterfly, as well as each of our own spiritual transformations, continue onward after death. With death, we retreat from the physical world, but once again we are reborn into another dimension where we get our wings and remember our full light and how to fly.
