Butterfly Spirit Animal ~ Master of tapping into new realities...

The journey of transformation the Butterfly symbolizes requires going deep into the cocoon of meditation and letting all fears and old wounds be released one by one, so that transformation can take place... in the cocoon you experience release and the freedom from what has held you back... you see new possibilities, new ways of being, you feel the rapture of being totally set free... with wings to fly. 

Butterfly spirit animal has gone from a caterpillar that is only capable of crawling ever so slowly along on a twig to becoming a Butterfly that is capable of of taking flight across seas and continents.  Butterfly symbolism conveys a message of what is possible in our own lives, of going beyond what we believe possible ~ to making the impossible a reality.

Butterfly Totem Animal  
~ A Beautiful totem reminding you to release your fears

Butterfly symbolism at it's finest!

Butterfly totem animal says do not rush the process, you will need to spend time in the cocoon nurturing yourself and healing... and in doing so getting in touch with your feelings and the essence of your soul self. 

We can only imagine the thoughts of the caterpillar as he enters the cocoon, as he makes contact with the essence of his spirit self. 

The moment he enters the cocoon he has let everything he has ever known be left behind as he embraces the rapture of transcendence and complete re-birth. 

He has surrendered and he is ready, he trusts in something greater than himself to guide him through. 

Soon Butterfly spirit animal will have a life filled with new possibilities and a whole new way of living.
