Totems: Butterfly

Butterflies take on many forms, with differing colours that can be of great beauty. This creature starts off as a caterpillar, an eater of plants with possibly acting as an annoying pest to people. People do fear insects and the butterfly, alongside the ladybug, seem to be the exception with such fears.
The butterfly teaches that three things do not have to be traumatic to happen; growth, change and transformation. It can be a rather gentle experience to grow, to change, to transform. A tough time, it may be, but it doesn’t always have to be so. It can be a calming time, where both rest and learning occur at the same time.
Being reminded of being in a state of transformation constantly shall be what the butterfly does. Teaching that change is good, change should be encouraged and to do what possible to turn dreams into reality. Transformation is highly important to the butterfly, for it once dwelled the land and now is free.
