Monarch Butterfly Reflection

I first published this reflection back in October 2012.  I hope you enjoy its second airing!

Monarch Butterfly (Listen while you read)

The way to your heart; indeed. The way to your heart is via the beauty that you see.

(Oh yes, my friends; beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And what, pray tell, do you see?

Come with me on a journey; a journey that could take as little time as it would take to blink an eye.

We do not mean to confuse, dear heart. No, it is not our intention to confuse. However, we see many being confused by their surrounds.

Indeed, dear ones; if it is death and destruction one sees in their surrounds, there would seem to be a need for compensation to be given should they perceive the ‘entire’ world in this fashion. This is not the case, dear hearts. There is most certainly death and destruction happening in the world; however, we would ask that you confine your thinking to ‘your’ world.

If you are one who is experiencing death and destruction we would ask that you turn your thinking to those who are not experiencing this situation.

Should you be one of those who is not experiencing death and destruction we would ask that you place your thoughts, not on death and destruction, for this will only enhance those energies; making them more powerful than they already are.

Does this seem like an impossibility, dear heart? Does it seem to be a significant ideal within the lives of humans? Is it possible to discount the death and destruction in the world, and allow yourself to refrain from thinking about it?

Some would say this is turning a ‘blind eye’, as it is said. Some would say that this is ignorance breeding ignorance.

We would suggest, dear ones, this is ‘life’ preserving. We would suggest that if you cannot do anything substantial by way of making this condition better; then your thoughts will only contribute to the negativity.

Live your life with a sense of ‘presence’. Yes, that’s right. Live your life in whatever circumstances you find yourself. Do not place yourself in energies that are not of your making, or your good. No, dear hearts. This is what the Monarch butterfly suggests to those who enjoy its beauty:

Live; not your brother’s; not your sister’s life. No, dear ones; this is their experience. Live your own life, and leave others to live theirs.)

Butterfly (General) Reflection

Butterfly (General) Reflection   (listen while you read)  

Be serene and know that I am with thee.

ButterfliesOrchids400Seqoyashutterstock_124491652(A bridge to our soul life. Indeed, this is what the beautiful butterfly represents. It is asking us to think upon our soul. It is asking us to ponder the soul. It is asking that we ‘take to heart’ the fact that we have a soul.

Many of us wander through life without hope. We clamber over rocks and issues within the moments of our day and forget that ‘close by’ is the salvation of the ages.

Yes, my friends, we fail to recognise the salvation of the ages.

And what is the salvation of the ages? Yes, that’s right. The salvation of the ages is our most precious gift; our soul. It is only when we have recognised this gift that all problems begin to cease. Indeed, this is true my friends. When the soul is recognised, all problems begin to cease.  Know that this is true. I know that this is true for this has been my experience. An experience so wonderful, so precious, so exhilarating as to bring such wonder into my life; the adventure is overwhelming.

An incredible adventure awaits all who recognise the soul. This self recognition is ‘available’ to all.

It is not for the feint-hearted. No, indeed it is not. It takes a multitude of energy, persistence, devotion, serenity, calm, intention (the list goes on) to make way in our ever fast paced lives to stop, sit, cogitate, muse, remember, allow; accept the inevitable glorious ability we have within ourselves.

Yes, my friends, the soul is awaiting recognition. Once recognised it will become obvious to us; the changes it will bring will become obvious to us. No more the obstinate; no more the weary of heart; no more the trying to escape.

Yes, the soul allows us to ‘wait’ upon ourselves; to ‘wait’ upon others. And what is this ‘wait’?

It is the essence of love; that it is. It is the essence of love engendered ‘within’ that allows us patience; tolerance; acceptance that indeed we are all different. Hallelujah; we are all different.  May each and everyone find the soul within.

The beautiful butterfly holds the key to our inmost. It is a beacon in an otherwise cloudy day; a light that we can shine upon dismal circumstances; the one to turn to when we are in need. A beginning; just a beginning. A beginning out of darkness into the light of day.)

Dragonfly (General) Reflection

Hurry, hurry; I mustn’t be late.

Hurry, hurry; for I have a date.

Hurry, hurry; I mustn’t forget.

No time to ponder, or I might be late.

(Isn’t it time to ponder? Yes? No?

There does come a time when pondering is the best thing to do. Yes? No?

Indeed my friends; pondering can be fun. It can take us to many places, real or not real.

Most ponder with the imagination; this is true. We would ask that you do as the Dragonfly; he ponders upon the real.

Too many ponder upon the ‘not real’. This, my dear friends, causes much angst. Indeed, this type of pondering is ‘for the birds’. You understand my dear, dear friends?  We do not like birds; no, dear ones; birds tend to have sharp  beaks, indeed.

Do you want to be ‘taken by the birds with their sharp beaks? Yes? No?

Should you answer ‘no’ dear heart, we would suggest that you refrain from pondering the ‘not real’, and concentrate your pondering upon ‘facts’. Oh yes, my friends. Pondering facts will have the birds not worrying you; you will be safe in the confines of reality; indeed.)

Lady Beetle (Ladybug) Reflection

Lady Beetle  (Ladybug)   (Listen while you read) 

LadyBugsBrian_Chase400shutterstock_16907992What’s in a name?

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet!

And this is what we have to say to you.

Any other name presents the same energy.

If, for instance, a name is given; does it change the energy?

No, it does not. Energy is energy is energy.

The name shall bring energies of its own; however, it cannot, nor will it change the object; this remains the same.

So, when choosing a name be sure that you do not expect the object to resonate with the energies.

No, this is an impossibility.

(Many do this; they choose a name that is liked in the hope that the child will resonate with the energies of that name. This is an impossibility. The child will have its own energies, and cannot resonate to any other energy other than its own.

We see this over and over again.

His energies are of a ‘Charles’ and yet, his parents or guardians, give him the name of ‘John’ in the vain hope that he will be like his grandfather. Others give the child a name of a famous individual hoping, in vain, that somehow the name will impart some of the success.

We all do this. Do we not? We hope that life will be kind and do as we can to ensure that kindness prevails upon those we love; and yet, this is folly to those of us who know. Each one will have the energy that was intended; and there is naught that can be done to change that.)

Bee Reflection

Bee   (Listen while you read)

 Hi-BeeHo, Hi-Ho it’s off to work we go.

And keep on singing all day long Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho.

(Yes, we love to work; don’t you? No..? Yes…?

Well, what is it. Yes or no? You can’t have it both ways you know! No, you can’t have it both ways.

Why n0t?

Because that’s just the way it is. You either like work, or you don’t. How can you like work, and not like work?

Because there are some parts of it that I like and some parts of it that I don’t.!

Right. That sounds okay to me. Sure there are always going to be parts of everything that we like, as well as parts that we don’t. I agree. So, now that we have established that there are parts of things that we like, and parts of things that we don’t like; where does that leave us?

It leaves us knowing that it is okay to like some parts of something, yet not other parts of that same thing. Nothing wrong with that. That is when we can apply the saying; ‘take what you like and leave the rest’.

Doesn’t mean that we are vacillating; no. Doesn’t mean that we are fickle; no. Doesn’t mean that we can’t make up our mind; no. It just means that we care for some things, whilst not caring for others.

Simple enough. Yes, simple enough.)

Tarantula Reflection

Tarantula   (Listen while you read

TarantulaWhoa; I say whoa; hold them there horses before you get all tied up!!!

(Better to wait to see if what you are about to do is really the best thing to be done at this moment in time.

Sometimes; I say ‘sometimes’ we can head out without enough thought before us; if you know what I mean!

Yep; sometimes; I say ‘sometimes’ we can think that we have a good plan, and yet, were we to think about it a little more carefully maybe, just maybe, we may find that we are going off a little ‘half-cocked’.

To be sure, we may have every right to our grievance; ‘every right’, indeed. However, not every grievance needs a voice. No, sometimes it’s more prudent to ‘keep it to our self’; at least until we are more settled within. Know what I mean?

Yeah; sometimes the words that come rushing forth may evince a slight offence; unintended, of course…. however, painful to him who we serve this mêlée of projection…. Hence; a non-verbal show; a reluctance to converse; a thwarted line of defence; an untimely release of cynicism; a poor show of favour; so many inward and outward displays that may hinder our way, and make the future a little unsteady….

Well, enough prophesying; you get the drift!)
