Many of us have heard the old story of “The Ugly Duckling” – the little duck who didn’t look like all the other ducklings, seemed oversized and oafish, and was certainly not as cute & adorable. And, at the end, the little ugly duckling finds its beautiful mom, a Swan, and grows itself to be a gorgeous Swan. A child’s tale that shares the power of Swan’s transformational energies to show that everyone is beautifully different, and we all search for our authenticity and true selves to live as we are meant to live – happy, healthy, and surrounded by a strong support network and harmonious community.
The next time you feel misfit, uncertain, lost, or outcast/alone… Call upon Swan to show you your inner grace & wisdom, your purpose & power, and what self-acceptance & self-trust is wen it comes to following your own intuitive guidance. Swan will help you to transform – grow & change – that you may stand firm & courageous in who you are and do what you need to do to create the happy, healthy, harmonious life you envision for yourself.
Lasting change & natural growth is a process, and it takes some time. We often think we can finish or complete all of it and be done and then relax; but, no… not even in what we think of as “old age” is there a total completion. We still have gifts, talents, faculties, knowledge & creativity to share even after our work is done or our children are grown or we have accumulated all the creature comforts we need or we have given up on all the creature comforts we thought we wanted. We still have growth & change & transformation to embrace. It’s part of the nature of Universal-etheric energy and Life-force energy. Butterfly can show us the patience, trust, and participation we have in the dance of Life as we practice transformation every day.
The next time you feel uninspired or anxious about your phase of life or unclear on your accomplishments, goals, or direction… Call on Butterfly to show you all the colors of your skills & gifts & talents. Let Butterfly show you what phase of growth you’re enduring and what you can do to be a part of it, to embrace it, and to have the courage to emerge more lovely than ever.
In many stories, Moth often plays the role of Spirit messengers, letting us know when Spirits are around, and sometimes bringing the supportive & hopeful light of abundance to us. Moth seeks the light in the darkness, which often comes to us after metamorphosis, like Butterfly’s phases of growth.
The next time you feel you need illumination from within, call on Moth to guide you through the dark to the light that shines in your heart. Find there the rejuvenation, hope, & purpose you seek. And, the next time Moth appears to be paying you a visit, acknowledge & honor the intuitions you have about the Spirits around you who may be there to help – from Angels or Faeries, to Ancestors & Loved Ones who have crossed-over.
May you be at peace with taking the time for self-care and reflection. May you be blessed in your courageous journey. May you always be growing & transforming easily and gracefully throughout every phase of energy transformation. And, may you recognize the transformations & metamorphosis in others.
Peace & blessings,
