Butterflies are cross culturally the symbol of transformation and the soul. They metamorphose from caterpillar into a self spun mummy-like cocoon dormancy. It is astonishing that their entire cellular structure changes into imaginal cells so they can emerge as a beautiful flying creature, living an entirely different life. We are also invited to re-imagine our own lives to transform into what has the most heart and meaning for us. At the sudden death of two of my dear friends this past week, I am reminded to think of death as a new form of life - like the butterfly emerging from it’s cocoon into an even more beautiful form. 

What is transforming in your life at this time?
