The butterfly is a powerful symbol for spiritual transformation.

Just as the caterpillar goes from crawling on the ground and eating leaves to becoming an exquisite flying insect feeding on sweet, nectar of flowers, so us, humans, evolve from basic ‘survival mode’ into an ever growing ‘divine reality’ feeding on nectar of the gods.

In between these stages, there is a long transformational sleep.

Often, when we go through a dark time, we feel we’re being destroyed, forgetting that maybe we are being prepared for the greatest flight of our lives.

We are not made to crawl, we are made to fly!

little butterfly, to his surprise,
his long slumber gave rise
to his wondrous flight.
