Romancing the Butterfly and its Symbolic Meaning

The Butterfly has such a beautiful significance in life, a delicate and ornate creature who just by their floating into our presence can instantly light smiles on the faces who see her. They are symbolic for the Perception of the Evolving Soul. The way in which they flutter through the air and land on one flower... to the next flower, looks as if they are doing a dance of happiness. Almost as if they are giving out kisses to each one. Even in difficult or harsh circumstances they still float in the same manner, insistent on living in the moment and living in joy.
The Butterfly represents how you choose to perceive your growth, whether you perceive the transformations as  a difficult period or whether you perceive them as a grand adventure appreciative of each moment. Transformation, change, and growth are inevitable, but how we choose to walk through them affects how easy or difficult they can be. 
The Butterfly is a special totem to look to when you are going through a trans formative period, and are wanting to have it be filled with as much ease and joy as possible.

My most recent Mixed Media creation focuses on and honors the Butterfly Totem, and invites its wisdom of perception and joy filled moments into our realm. The creation itself had its own evolving, by altering a simple shallow drawer into an ornate Butterfly Shrine Wall Art. 

Romancing the Butterfly - an Altered Art Butterfly Shrine
It is a wonderful way of honoring one's Transformations, and enjoying every moment within them. 

The Butterfly Shrine is available on my site
