At The Table: Journey And Whispers; Butterflies And Moths
As I walk in the stillness of dark before morning, I am in Gratitude for the sweet cool air on my skin. I am grateful to smell the sounds of my world. The ground is dewy wet on my feet, and my morning shawl comforts my body. Today is a fine day. As I go into meditation, I ask to be shown what needs to be addressed today. I call for assistance to support me during the work that I am doing within myself. I ask to be shown that the colors of my energy are cleansed and spinning in perfect form. I allow myself to relax, and as I give gratitude for this time for myself, I begin to see the white and golden light come up from the Earths crystalline core; filling my toes, feet, and ankles with pure white energy. The beautiful Earths energy moves up into my calves, my knees, my hips, my thighs, my stomach and my chest, the energy becomes the colors of a golden bright light, with specks of blue, orange, red, green all sparkling through my body. This crystal light now goes into my arms and out my fingertips. My hands are on fire, and the crystal ball of light moves back to my heart space and into my throat and up to my jaw, through my lips, to my nose, through my third eye, where I feel all the energy now spinning around and within me. The light is busy aligning my energy centers, and cleansing my aura field. This beautiful crystal ball of light now enters my head and completely goes down my neck, my spine and back thru my heart, and this energy of light pours out of my crown and spills over my aura and flows beautifully completely around my crystal body. The energy is so bright, I no longer can see my body, I am cleansed, I am grounded and connected. I now feel my journey begin, and my world whispers to me:
You are working with great effort in your transformation to your higher truth, your higher purpose. It is time to have fun, relax, and take a deep breath. You must look at your steps with more lightness in your heart. Take time to play. You are moving through many cycles in your Now moment. Go through these changes with the grace that is yours. Much is merging into your Life at this time. You are experiencing many potentials being offered to you at this time. You are in a magic closet, a cocoon before the emerging of your new Life. There are many celebrations around you. Enjoy this time and be laughter, be playful, and use your awareness to bring light into the darkness. Fly high into the light and land safely on the runway you have built. You will emerge with a higher consciousness of Self and your purpose. You are Loved.
As the energy becomes a pure river of white light flowing gently within me, I become more aware of my breath. I take a deep breath into my body and see the colors of yellow, orange and blue. They flow like a beautiful stream all around me. As I sit in this stream of energy, I feel the Light of the Sun kiss my skin. The Light becomes brighter, as the stream of energy begins its descent back to Source. I take another deep breath all the way in, blessing myself, and a complete breath out, blessing my world. I open my eyes slowly, and in front of me on my purple wild flowers in my fairy garden, is a beautiful moth stepping so lightly on the flower for the pollen gathering. The solar lights in my fairy garden are just starting to blink their good-byes for the day, to recharge themselves in the glorious Sun. Right next to moth is a wondrous yellow butterfly. A big one. She is dancing from the yellow flowers to the orange poppies, her music a delight to witness. I sit in this energy of my world and am so grateful for these beings showing up to validate the message I received.
Some meanings for Butterfly:
Butterflies remind us not to take life so seriously. They feed on flowers that they help pollinate, thereby further spreading beauty. They represent the element of air, quickly changing and ever moving, so gracefully. Butterflies are messengers of the moment. They come in a variety of colors. The butterfly is a very powerful symbol of transformation. She asks us to accept the changes in our lives as casually as she does. The butterfly unquestioningly embraces the changes of her environment and her body. We are all on a long journey of the soul. On this journey we encounter endless turns, shifts, and conditions that cause us to morph into ever-finer beings. At our soul-journey’s end we are inevitably changed – not at all the same as when we started on the path.
Symbolic Butterfly Meanings
Some meanings for Moth:
Like their cousins the butterflies, moths also go through metamorphosis. Moths spin cocoons while butterflies create a naked chrysalis. The cocoon is a more sheltered, outer covering. This can often indicate a need to be more sheltered in our creative transforming activities and relationships when the moth is the messenger. Unlike butterflies, most moths are active at night. During the day, they find a place to hide and sleep. Around dusk they begin to awaken and look for food. As they feed, they come fully awake and they spend the night feeding and flying about.
Moths are nocturnal, and much of their symbolism deals with:
* Psychic perception
* Heightened awareness
Moths are beings of the moon as well. They follow the moon as a source of light. This connects them to the following attributes:
* Knowledge of the Otherworld
* Second sight
I find it fascinating that as my world woke up, moth was here to show me her energy before retreating to rest for the day, after a long evening’s journey, and butterfly appeared to show me the waking beauty of the mornings light from the dark. Powerful energy is all around me at this time. The message of change, transformation and especially the coming out of my cocoon brings a huge smile on my lips and my face is beaming bright with this new awareness that I am embracing my changes with grace. The cocoon also symbolizes the individual potentials: ugly to beautiful, rags to riches, and so on. I am immensely blessed.
I take another breath before rising to my feet. I give thanks from my heart to my world today. I now see that Moth has left and returned to her home for rest. She will again visit some fine evening in my fairy garden. The butterfly has remained on the poppies this entire visit. She looks at me with gladness. I can hear her music in my garden, and the flowers dance to her tune! Namaste beautiful World ♥
