Butterflies to me represent the messengers from the spirit realm to the physical realm. There is so much symbolization and meaning that each person adds to the butterfly and I truly believe that each adaptation is correct. It’s special how each individual is different and unique in their own way.
To see the beauty and purity in imagination is so special to me. To dream and be someone of importance in your own life. To lead your own life in a way of absolute sureness of the outcome. Knowing that once you exit this world you will truly know that you have LIVED. That you LIVED, not by the reaction and opinion of others, but but the dreams and imaginations that you find yourself falling in over and over again.
Butterflies are so resilient. They start their life as a caterpillar struggling to survive and not get eaten. Then they find themselves in a chrysalis for 14 days to crystallize and become a butterfly.
This is much like life and the process of awakening through spirituality. It’s quite beautiful. Our thyroid is shaped in a butterfly and is related the be our butterfly gland. This connection in the throat is, to me, related to how butterflies are a connection of the spirit realm to the physical plane. I’m a butterfly. Just as everyone else. The process that we are on in your own journey is up to you and where you believe yourself to be.
