It’s a messy process for a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly. The caterpillar digests itself. A soup like consistency forms which transforms into a butterfly. I can certainly relate to the caterpillar. I have been going through some very uncomfortable times lately. Some days it seems that no matter which way I look, all I see is change and uncertainty, which is very unsettling. When you are in the middle of all the changes, sometimes it is hard to have clarify that everything is working out for the best. I know that a lot of people are experiencing similar things these days. So I thought that I would share some of what I have been going though in the hope that it might help someone else.
So what has been going on for me? A beloved relative is facing health challenges. This has had a huge and dramatic impact on our relationship. It is teaching me about living in the present moment. Each day is different. I have had to learn to leave all my reference points about who they are behind. All I can do is love and accept them. Some days this is easier than others.
Then there is the move. We have been talking about moving house. Given the amount of family members involved (most of whom are four footed), the move becomes complicated. Then there is the uncertainty as the move is not happening the way that I envisioned it. Now I know that things usually work out differently to how you expect them to work out. But this is taking that concept to a whole new level. It is bringing up issues of trust and belief for me. I am lucky in that I have a whole lot of ‘tools’ to help me through this process. Yet it is still a very uncomfortable process to live through. There are days where I have to work to motivate myself to get up as I ride the roller coaster of emotion.
What is helping me immensely is my beautiful animal family. The dogs in particular are there giving love and support and inviting me daily to remember to play and have fun. Some days I tell them to ‘talk to the paw’. I am too sunk in the issues of the moment. Yet, I would have to say that those moments are the exception rather than the rule.
What I’ve been going through has prompted me to create a new course. It’s called “Transformation – Embrace Your Inner Butterfly and Roar like a Lioness”. It will be offered online for 4 weeks from mid November till mid December. In this class I will explore with you tools and tips of what you can do to help keep yourself motivated when times are tough. For bookings, go to my website.
I look forward to helping you use animal wisdom to navigate your transformational journey.
