The Butterfly Symbol
The Butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and love, & metamorphosis.
The Butterfly is a powerful symbol of myth and religion.
For Early Christians, it represented the soul itself. The butterfly used to be thought of as the soul of the departed still lingering amongst the living. What a beautiful thought!
In China, it symbolised conjugal bliss and joy.
In Native American culture, the butterfly is a symbol of Metamorphosis and Transformation. The symbol of new life, letting go of cycles and finding true inner expression
American Indians call upon the butterfly for guidance in change, colour, and happiness.
Butterflies are messengers of the moment and come in a wide array of colours.
The butterfly is one of the most inspiring symbols of the animal kingdom, knowing precisely the time to leave the comfort and limitations of the cocoon flying freely into the world.
The Butterfly Dance
The “dance of the butterfly” can teach you not to take things so seriously. The butterfly has taste sensors on the front legs, enabling them to experience life through motion (dancing, walking).
Butterflies do not know the colour of their wings, but human eyes know how beautiful they are. We can see the intricate details of its wings and the vivid colours of some butterflies. Each one is beautiful in its own rights. No two butterflies can be compared to each one is different. Each one is special. Each one is beautiful.
The butterfly calls you to expand your awareness and spread your wings and call forth your inner joy. Let go of limitations and free yourself to express your own beauty within. Likewise, we don’t always see the good qualities that we possess, so we need to do some soul-searching. Listen to what others have to say as they already see how special you are.
Butterfly brings colour and lightness to your life. Color is an important part of our daily life and can affect how we respond to various situations. (you can read more about colour here.)
