I had a dream that I was a butterfly.
I was fluttering up to the sun and all of a sudden . . . . . I burst into flames. That’s all I could remember upon my awakening.
Butterflies and Fire symbolize transformation, renewal and rebirth. I thought I had already done this. All that bolted through my mind was:
“AGAIN? How many times must I go through transformations???????”
My subconscious calmly reported “Many times. You’re not done, Shar.”
I’ve come to understand (from having to continue to renew my spirit) that we are in a constant state of transformation. My mind, body and soul will hover in a superconscious state for only so long if I fail to nurture my spirit on a daily basis. My body absorbs the pains of others and this world. So much so, that if I don’t pull away and recenter, I’m left with a couple days in bed nursing by achy joints, muscles and fatigue.
This is sign that I need to transform AGAIN. Butterflies arrive.
I wonder if everyone has signs that renewal time is in order.
