“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ~ Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist
Have you noticed the beauty around you? Birds singing, flowers blooming, new growth on trees; and seeds planted in the Fall are breaking through the soil! Spring, a time of hope, rebirth, and new beginnings. For many this is also a very sacred time – a time of rebirth of the soul! I feel so much optimism and new possibilities. How about you?
The image of beautiful butterflies come into my awareness. They reflect the journey of change and transformation. A journey that transforms a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. One, that, to me, symbolizes our own internal journey of remembering who we are. A journey that begins anew in our mother’s womb and continues throughout our life giving us an opportunity for personal growth and an opportunity to remember that we are not separated from God/Goddess/All That Is, Source. We are all connected and a part of Oneness. We experience so many adventures along the way, don’t we?
Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist monk reminds us that “We have within us a miraculous power, and if we live our daily lives in mindfulness, if we take steps mindfully, with love and care, we can produce the miracle and transform our world into a miraculous place to live.” The energy of spring supports miracles and opportunities for change and transformation and we can witness it everyday if we open our eyes and “see” the beauty that abounds! It’s all around us.
What seeds have you planted? Are they beginning to sprout? What old habits and beliefs have you released? How much space have you created for hope, imagination, creativity, and new beginnings? The opportunity for rebirth is real. Now it’s up to you to choose what you want to create in your life. Imagine yourself emerging as a beautiful butterfly! It’s possible! Each day we wake up we are beginning a new day as a new being with endless possibilities. What changes are you willing to make? Imagine these limitless opportunities with love and care. Imagine a miraculous transformation from within you. Imagine you transforming like the butterfly transforms.
Tara Killen, Positive Psychology speaker and trainer reminds us that “Spring is a time of new beginnings, new possibilities . . . What quality would you like to grow this spring?” Once again, it’s your life and you are more powerful than you think. Be mindful and claim the butterfly that you are! Imagine your own beauty!
