finding my wings.

"Metamorphosis isn't always pretty but it is always awesome and absolutely essential." - Oprah Winfrey

I just need to say that I am seeing butterflies!

I wrote here about the butterflies that appeared in my life earlier this year, but ever since I wrote that post, I have been noticing something different. For the past few months blue butterflies have been appearing in my life. I need to be clear and tell you that as I am in England in the winter, the butterflies have not been real. Instead they have appeared in other guises. I have seen them winking at me from book and magazine covers, on people's clothing, in advertising, etc., etc. It has happened enough that I have begun to get a little heart flutter every time I see one now, because I believe there is more to it than just coincidence.

I have had a funny thing for blue wings for a while now. I even put a pair into the book that I have just written. So to suddenly begin seeing them everywhere has been quite intriguing. I have been looking in all of my signs and symbols books to try to discover what it all means. All of them say the same thing: butterfly = transformation. But what does a blue butterfly mean? Hopefully it's MY transformation. I choose to see them as little winks from the universe to say that everything is going to be okay. My book (complete with blue wings) will be published, Mark's website will launch, and life with be transformed.

Maybe the caterpillar has finally metamorphosed! (Is that even a word?) (Giggle.)

Indeed you will spread your blue wings and soar! This is obviously a very personal symbol gifted to you by the Universe. Only you and the Universe can say what it means. But whatever it is, it is splendid! :)

That seems to certainly be a secret code for you from the universe. How intriguing.

Last week, a client gave me a book called "Hope for the Flowers." It's all about catepillars realizing they can turn into butterflies. It's from the 70s and is kinda like a children's book but for adults. Very endearing. If you haven't read it, you might enjoy it given your lovely butterfly post.
