Life in the Butterfly Garden: It's always Changing

Life in the Butterfly Garden: It's always changing! Lately, I've been feeling a connection to my local butterfly garden even more than before. I can't help but notice that the botanical garden is always changing and turning over a new leaf. 

Just like me and you!  It's no secret that I look at butterflies as a metaphor for life.  I feel like we're meant to be always growing, evolving, and adapting to the world around us.  

I have really entered a cocoon period for the rest of the year.  I feel cozy and nestled up tightly within my heart space.  I feel like I have the luxury of spending time with myself.

My whole life I've been shedding old skin and shifting in and out of form in order to grow closer to something.  This is the first time in my life where I feel comfortable in my own skin, even though I know that soon I will emerge from yet another cocoon soon enough.   

But, for now, I feel as if I'm exactly where I need to be.  It feels like a time to sit with myself for a while and evaluate what I'd like to have in my future relationship.  

As many of you know, I haven't had the best luck when it comes to love and I'm trying to move past that.  Energetically, I can feel myself moving on from the past and looking to the future for new love.  

That's right!  I recently got another tarot reading with my girl Liz from Arcane and Stellar.  Let's just say that 2021 looks to be the year that things are looking up for me in the love department of my life.

You can read more about the qualities I'm looking for in my next relationship to see where my romantic journey has taken me.  It's been a long road to love, but I know that some things are worth waiting for and this is one of them.  

After my tarot reading with Liz, I honestly feel like I can relax and enjoy my life.  I can focus on self-improvement and being the best possible version of myself for when I meet my new love interest.

I feel very hopeful about love and I feel lucky in love.  Her reading clearly showed that the manifestation work I'm doing is working!

That's just on the love front!  I always feel like I'm coming into my own when it comes to the work I'm doing.  For the longest time, I had to work in secret like the hermit card or the magician card in the tarot deck.  

I felt like I had to hide the fact that I was living life as a solitary green witch.  There were entire parts of my life that I kept hidden from my family in order to be able to show up to work here every day.  

Guess what?  It shows!  I'm not rich or anything, but I'm actually making money from my blog.  It's only been in the past year that this has started to happen.  

This is huge because I came from a poverty mindset.  I was a single mom for many years and now I'm an empty nester.  You can read about how I deal with empty nest syndrome: two years later to get an idea of what I went through.  Now, I'm breaking free of victim mode!

I feel like I know my place in the world and that every time I begin to doubt myself, the universe aligns me with her highest truth and most authentic voice.  

When I visit the butterfly garden and make another entry in my nature journal, I find that the butterfly flowers begin to fade or die away for the autumn and winter mood that looks beyond us.  I feel a stillness in her place.  

Those are the moments when I realize that life is really like a butterfly garden with its ever-changing foliage, essence, and spirit.  What could be more beautiful than that?  Thanks for reading, friends..xo
