Animal Totem: Butterfly

Transformation and joy. These two words represent the essence of the butterfly. They appear to dance as they flit from one flower to another. This reminds us not to take things so seriously. They awaken a sense of lightness and joy in our souls. They also remind us to get up and move our bodies. Feel the air and the ground beneath our feet. Butterflies have taste receptacles on their feet…they actually taste the flowers by walking on them. Taste the sweetness of Mother Earth and feel her beneath your feet. Feel the at-one-ment with her and the other Beings in nature.

Butterfly medicine reminds us to make changes when the opportunities arise. Change will always happen but butterfly can teach you how to transform sweetly, joyously and with a light heart if you will listen to her.
