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
And so with this, we have the
naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe on JULY 14, 2013:
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.
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.
caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
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
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.”
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
"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.
nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.
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!"

The Blue Morpho Butterfly is an absolute enchantress of the South
American rainforest. A marvel, renowned for its beauty and mystical
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
The Native American Indian
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.
