December 2, 2015 Totem Card of the Day – Butterfly

card 27 butterfly 1122
Today the Butterfly shows its wings with the radiance of its soul’s energy and color, sharing that it is time to be who we are supposed to be and let our own wings soak up the positive energies in order to show the world our true self. no more hiding in the safety of our self imposed cocoon we created for ourselves, it’s time to test the air. Shed the walls we built up around us, extend ourselves not in others expectations or judgement… but rather in the perfect soul we are.

We all have purpose, we all have intent of our life journey for that is why we have come to this earth to experience it. So why not experience it in the best way we can? Sure life can throw us curve balls, but every thing has purpose and we need to learn how to smack those curve balls out of the park! yesterday was about shedding with the Snake medicine… and today’s card shows us that continued journey of shedding what is needed to be able to move freely ahead. To honor our souls light and beauty… to be part of the positives that we can create.

The Butterfly is connected to the elemental Air. It represents to many cultures the story of Transformation. It teaches us how to shift, change and move with whatever life brings to our paths. This helps us to learn how to work through events and situations that we encounter in our lives so that we can move through changes in what appears to be effortless with grace allowing our Sacred Hoops to come into and stay balanced.

Butterfly shares with us the gift of understanding that we all have purpose, we are all part of a grander plan, that we all exist to complete the balance needed in the world we live in. Without each of us inputting our energies, our purposes… other things would not come to fruition. Such as the pollen that is collected when they land in a grouping of flowers, when they move from place to place they assist the species in continuing to exist. We too are much like the Butterfly, for without each of us to contribute our efforts, our knowledge sharing it with our young people, with each other… ideas and cultures would eventually cease to exist.

Butterfly teaches us that we need to quiet our minds to hear the echoes of our souls, to look around you and appreciate all that is Sacred. Teachings are also about how we move through our lives transforming and constantly changing. As we are seeded into the womb where we begin our earth journeys growing and nurturing to prepare to enter the world, we are much like the Butterfly in the cocoon until we emerge slowly transforming into what and who we are to become.

Throughout our lives this occurs as we move through the changes in our life. So don’t fight the changes, rather honor the process of it as your Soul grows and expands into all that it can be… the beautiful soul that is an intricate part of the Human Race.

So today take time and honor who you are, remembering that you and all that you are is meant to be for a purpose and wonderful reason…. Take a moment to breathe, take a moment to revel in becoming understanding that you are important to all life!

“I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing the Native culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
