Butterflies are lovely creatures. Many people design gardens with special plants and structures just to attract them. With these 3 meditations, you’ll be able to surround yourself with butterflies anytime you want.
Let them inspire you to think about change, beauty, and growth!
Butterflies and Change
Butterflies make remarkable transformations from larvae, to caterpillars, and then to their final form. Learn to embrace change in your own life.
Celebrate what you have to gain. Caterpillars may be unaware of what’s ahead for them. However, you can identify the rewards you want to work for. Imagine how much better you’ll feel when you lose weight or make a new friend.
Accept change as inevitable. If you need more encouragement, reflect on how your life evolves even without any effort on your part. Like a butterfly, you’ve grown from an infant into an adult.
Raise your sights. Butterflies flutter through the air rather than crawling on the ground. Shed your old limitations and set ambitious goals.
Recognize your resilience. Give yourself credit for all that you’ve overcome and achieved. Know that you’re strong enough to cope with difficult circumstances.
Butterflies and Color
Butterflies capture our attention with their bright patterns. How does color affect your mood?
Identify your favorite color. Think about whatever color you love. Maybe blue soothes you or yellow lifts your spirits.
Examine the associations you make. Memories often trigger our reactions to different colors. Blue may be soothing because it reminds you of your childhood blanket or a soft pair of old jeans. The same thing is true for many aspects of life. When you become aware of your assumptions, you can change them if you choose.
Picture everything in green. Studies show that green is energizing. Spend a few minutes conjuring up a pleasant outdoor scene. Walk through the woods or lie down in a meadow.
Brighten your world. Bring more color into your daily life. Pick up some fresh flowers on the way to work. Paint an accent wall in your dining room in your favorite color.
Meditation on Spreading Your Wings like a Butterfly
As fragile as they look, butterflies have been known to travel thousands of miles. They can even soar at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour with the aid of the wind. Think of how much distance you can cover.
Welcome challenges. Gaining knowledge and sharpening your skills requires stepping outside your comfort zone. Identify one area in your life where you want to grow. For example, maybe you want to deepen your relationships or take on a major project at work.
Assess your potential. Consider your core strengths and list the tasks you’re good at and enjoy. What can you learn from the feedback you receive from others? You may find that you’re a talented writer or a strong strategic planner.
Feel liberated. Enjoy a greater sense of flexibility. You can set your own course. Resolve to be your authentic self and pursue what is truly worthy of you. Think about your life purpose and how you can achieve it. Ask yourself what you want to contribute to the world.
Go someplace new. Hold on to that sense of adventure as you complete your meditation. Decide to tackle something new today. You might read a book on an unfamiliar subject like physics or rose gardening. Perhaps you’ll travel a different route on your way home from work.
Feel as light and free as a butterfly. Let butterflies teach you to welcome change, appreciate color, and go the distance.
