The Butterfly Maiden is a Hopi symbol of growth and rebirth. She helps the crops grows and, like the butterfly, she demonstrates that everything is about transformation. She understands, therefore, that our goal--our purpose--changes as we change. How you saw yourself relating to the world at 20 is different from what you see at 40--or 60, or 80. What doesn't change, however, is the need to nurture what you want to grow. Your purpose is hidden in the unique constellation of gifts and talents that make up who you are. You have to nurture those things, and you have to nurture the relationships that appreciate and value what is special about you. Only a foolish gardener throws her seeds to the wind and walks away. Don't be a foolish gardener. If you want the fruit, you need to do the work.
And if that sounds too laborious, make it easy on yourself: Give to the world kindness and compassion. Make that your mission. That is purpose enough.
Channel this goddess: When you feel changes brewing in your life but you can't yet see what they are or how they will pan out, when seeking transformation, when cultivating your garden.
Need a goddess? I got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. then check back in a week or so and see what you got. It's fun! It's free! It's better for you than kale! (Actually, who are we kidding? Kale is really good for you, but still, it's not my favorite.)
PS: If you missed the party, my novel THE GODDESS LOUNGE is now available! Click on the book cover on the right to order a copy. And, then, if you like it, maybe you could write a review on Amazon. That would really help me out, although I hate to impose. You really are looking lovely today. That color on you is divine. You should wear it everyday.
