Be A Butterfly
Dreams are illustrations...from the book your soul is writing about you. Marsha Norman
Many people have a dream, and they go for it and make it happen. Others vacillate between hope for making it come true and fear that they can't do it. Some know there's a dream inside, but don't know what it is, so they wait for their soul to speak to them. Then there are others who go through life totally unaware that there's anything inside worth expressing. They work every day and pay the bills. Isn't that all there is? NO. We may start out in a cocoon, but each of us has the potential to become a butterfly if we listen and answer our butterfly destiny.
"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked. "You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar." Trina Paulus
I have a friend who felt a calling for a long time, but she brushed it off, feeling she didn't have the potential to become more than she was. Neither of us knew what her calling was, but for years, I saw the butterfly in her, and I carried that vision in my heart. I knew that one day she would discover her dream and pursue it. Well, recently that something came alive in her. She crawled out of her cocoon to fly like a butterfly preparing for work in the field of Energy Medicine. Her face glows with contentment and visions of a beautiful future helping others. And I smile, because I knew it all the time.
One can never consent to creep, when one feels an impulse to soar. Helen Keller
Do you feel something in you that yearns to be expressed? If so, are you one of those who's afraid to answer that call? Maybe you think it's not important enough or it's too great for you to tackle. There are small quiet dreams and large lofty ones. Whatever yours is, it's meant especially for you. You don't have to be rich or famous or produce great achievements for your dream to be worthwhile. Anything you do that satisfies that longing inside and spills over into the world is fulfilling your dream. And you can fly like the butterfly.
Our dreams are there to help us grow and share more of who and what we are. And life becomes more meaningful and sweeter with each one. If you need certain resources to accomplish what you're moved to do, your own heightened energy will attract those resources to you. There's a saying that goes, "Whether you believe you can or you can't, you're right," So why not believe you can...and be a butterfly.
Your wings are beautiful.
