BLUE BUTTERFLY CLAN - Eastern Gate - JULY 14, 2013
Click to Sign Up

INTRODUCTION
The naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration, imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us all one to another.

We are but reflections of one another, until we are reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts from our purest essence. And we will then each be one to another the most persistent of reminders of the greatness that lies within each of us. For it is then that we are projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift or the cover on the book.

And so with this, we have the naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe on JULY 14, 2013:

The Blue Butterfly Clan

BLUE BUTTERFLY'S POWER
Blue butterfly's medicine is centered in the GRACE of her acceptance and understanding of her great powers of healing and manifestation. She is not unlike a genie in the bottle, making everyone's dreams come true, which has all too often been abused and taken advantage of, not only by others, but also by our selves. For many we have been a kind of "lucky charm", very busy making dreams come true and granting wishes for those we have loved, friends, lovers, family and in the workplace. Blue Butterfly is going to help us change the channel... literally change the way we channel energy through our bodies!

My cocoon tightens, colors tease,
I'm feeling for the air;
A dim capacity for wings
Degrades the dress I wear.

A power of butterfly must be
The aptitude to fly,
Meadows of majesty concedes
And easy sweeps of sky.

So I must baffle at the hint
And cipher at the sign,
And make much blunder, if at last
I take the clue divine.

FROM THE CHRYSALIS  by Emily Dickinson

Now, through the energy of Blue Butterfly we are coming to terms with our powers and have also claimed our freedom to choose what wishes we will grant. As we start to really seriously see our ability to manifest and create from dreams, we now know that we must take more responsibility for our choices. For we now understand that we are connected to what we become involved in and what we create. We are responsible to create something beautiful and good and right in the world. This takes codependence to empowered interdepence which leads us right into the heart of tribal community.

We do have a drive within us to contribute to each other's happiness.. and this is what we must not allow to be destroyed. For this is a treasure to be guarded and elevated to another level of giving and being. We may have been approaching this superficially, mainly because we haven't yet gone deeply into our own happiness and what that truly means to us. As we have been in  our time of growth we have often been creating unconsciously and without the wisdom or insight to truly even know the desires of our heart. A clue for us might lie buried within what we have tried to create in the shadows. Now it is time to ALLOW that to become a reality in our lives. This is how blue butterfly infuses us with the wisdom and knowledge that all will be well when we trust the process. When we step into our soul's purpose and into the I AM presence, the mere act of us being ourselves and creating our life from that space, brings real satisfaction, true joy and unconditional love for others and the world, and this is our happiness.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”  ― Rumi

We also know for sure that each person has that unique thing that is the essence of their existence that has come for expression. And when they, too, begin to activate the power of this in their life, we can be assured that our people pleasing days of the highest order are not over, but only just beginning, not from that old place of lack, but from a place of true generosity and beingness, because it is the natural expression of our own soul. Nothing brings us greater joy. And it is a delight to all who receive what we bring.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. ~Richard Bach

There is no danger of becoming a martyr, because truth be told, we don't do anything we do just for others. That's not possible, because we no longer feel the separation. We do what we do because it is who we are and we MUST do it. And when we admit this to ourselves we then understand that others are giving us far more than we could possibly give to them.

 

In this realization the sweetness of our gratitude spreads a blanket of grace far and wide over our entire lives and over the lives of those we touch. For what others are giving us is the sacred nectar from our secret garden. There is no greater gift than when we are given the opportunity to express our soul, unless it is the opportunity to receive the expression of someone else's soul. It is in this space that the watcher and the watched are one and we experience the unity of all creation. This is bliss and divine union.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

The first part of our life we may have been bowed by our powers into believing that this was all we had to offer. Couple that with our true joy at making the dreams of others come to life... and the potential cocktail of relationship and romance addiction with a smidgen of codependency thrown in might have made this beautiful gift seem more life a curse. Now as we are coming to realize our true power, we better understand the why and how of the past.

Now everything shifts for us as our souls emerge and begin to take flight. As we continue to bloom and blossom, Blue butterfly helps us to cross-pollinate and expand our gardens, connecting our energies with each other in ways that are as beautiful and perfect as flowers themselves. It is through the magic of this flying deva that we truly activate our true heart's desire within  our community and take our beautiful place in the garden.

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”
― Rumi

 




BLUE BUTTERFLY SAYS…
Come fly with me and see for yourself what you have become. This is a time to allow your form to catch up to your awakened awareness and higher consciousness. You see the world from a new place and leaning how to be in the world but not of it. You are an ever evolving being of great mysterious grace. Get used to being a bringer of beauty just with your presence.

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." ~Hans Christian Andersen

The physical structures of your body at the cellular level are changing. Your mental powers are strengthening and your emotional body is becoming flexible and flowing. You are building the metaphysical structures of your being that will truly allow you to take flight. This is no mere metaphor and has many implications... from career to romance, but most of all for your body/mind/soul connection which is becoming ever more cohesive. You are becoming a journeyer in the ethereal, imaginative realms of being. Rapidly you will become adept at astral travel and working in the dreamtime, the place of no time and no space. This is the place where synchronicity and miracles eminate and abound.

Blue Butterfly says, "Get ready to travel and take in new sights and sounds, and also to see yourself in a new and different way." As we work with the sacred geometries that are the building blocks of life we tune into the power of the infinity sign, the merkaba (3D Star of David) and the Flower of Life, which will help awaken parts of yourself that have not existed before. As we bring the above to the below, the angelic forces power your cells and activate new growth.

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly. ~Buckminster Fuller

 

Butterfly is a creature that starts life on the ground, crawling low and inching along, giving very little visual clues about the metamorphosis to come. When she goes deep within and allows herself to experience the release of her old form, there is a moment in time called the chrysalis state where she is neither completely out of her old form, nor completely into her new form. This is a very sacred time and must be honored. For it is during this time that butterfly is remembering herself into being by recalling her future self.

“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”  ― Rumi

Blue butterfly is significant of the Blue Star energies and is tied to the Star Nation and the star Sirius. The Goddess of the Blue Butterfly is Isis. The color blue signifies the throat, nose, brow and crown chakras with its varying shades from aqua to royal, to indigo and violet. What shade of blue do you see? Work with this color to aid your transition. Blue is also indicative of water and sky both of which are largely comprised of oxygen. Butterfly brings us the reminder to take in the air - breath meditations, breathwork, aromatherapy and just plain getting some fresh air are all important things to do at this time.

Blue Butterfly says, "If you want to attract me into your garden create as much color and beauty as you can and I will keep the inspiration coming. The more you express your true colors, the more I can pollinate your creations. Now is your time to fly, dearest one. Come and spread your wings!"

BLUE BUTTERFLY LEGENDS
The Blue Morpho Butterfly is an absolute enchantress of the South American rainforest. A marvel, renowned for its beauty and mystical magic.

Various tribes throughout the rainforest seem as enamored with Mariposa Azul (as they call it) as we are. The Yukuna Tribe of Colombia show their devotion to the Blue Morpho, by performing a special costumed dance in its honor!

A plethora of South and Central American tribes have myths and legends relating the insect to the magical and supernatural. Some tales claim that the butterfly is in fact a sprite or fairy in disguise, while others claim that it is a messenger of their prayers to the gods, but alas, the Blue Morpho doesn’t always represent light and positivity.

Some Amazonians insist that the Blue Morpho is evil. They see it as a trickster, or worse, they associate it with dark magic and evil sorcerers. One such myth claims that the morpho takes its stunning shape in order to lure innocents into the forest, never to be heard from again.

Some regard the Blue Morpho as a healing butterfly and if caught, can heal the capturer of their ailments. This miraculous gift was portrayed in a movie based on real life events, by Lea Pool, entitled – The Blue Butterfly.

This is a true story and the name of the enthomologist is Georges Brossard who at the demand of Fondation Rêves D’enfants (or Chidren’s Dream Foundation, which grant wishes to very ill children), taken a young boy (technically in the terminal phase of cancer) to South America in 1987 in order to capture the beautiful and elusive blue morpho, considered the most beautiful butterfly in the world.

The Native American Indian Butterfly Legend
If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper their wish to it. Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly cannot reveal the wish to anyone, but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish. So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
