Animal Helper: Butterfly

Power Animals offer themselves to us for guidance and help with the challenges of our daily lives.

BUTTERFLY is what shamans call a shape-shifter: It changes form completely. Butterfly flutters into our lives to remind us that we are given countless opportunities to transform ourselves, to make positive changes toward greater and greater authenticity.

Simply noticing the behaviors or patterns that keep us stuck and unhappy is an important first step: when we notice, we honor the witness self, a deeper self that knows what it knows, and can help us to choose different ways of behaving that will be more in tune with the beautiful spirits we are.

Plus I have noticed so many more butterflies in general this year. I live in CT and they seem to be making a comeback in my yard/field after only seeing an occasional one every now and then after many years. Sometimes there are over 10 kinds going in and out of the flowers. To watch them is pure bliss. One landed on my shoulder and sat there as I fed the animals. It was a very spiritual experience.

Butterflies come into our lives because we share the planet with them, as well as all else that lives, period. If you want to ascribe "special" meaning to their fluttering by, enjoy yourself. We can look at their transformations, and derive meaning from them, but that is not WHY they are here, or Why they do anything.
They are simply being. And, that may be something we humans ought to become better at doing!
