Metamorphosis: Ready To Take Flight

🦋 Today I’m a butterfly starting to emerge from my cocoon. Ready to free myself – to let go of the layers of protection I had wrapped around me. I unfurl & stretch my wings in the air to dry. I’m getting stronger every minute. I lay low & out of sight until at last…I’m ready to take flight. 🦋 I see things like never before. Everything feels new. I see magnificent horses in the meadow galloping powerfully near me. Emotions run high, and I’m lifted in the rushing wind. I notice & marvel at everything as the green earth seemingly rises up to greet thundering hooves. 🦋 By Grace I am transported, swirling dizzily, into a hedge of exquisite wild roses. I avoid the thorns which are a threat to some, and alight blissfully upon the soft petals there. The essence of life is heady. I AM that I AM. And I AM safe here.

Connecting With My Inner Child

I wrote the prose above while doing inner child work after an Al-Anon meeting. Lately I’m experiencing more serenity than I have in a long time. It’s coming after a few months of more focus on my Al-Anon program and a time of profound exploration and reflection within a professional peer group. Tears of joy & gratitude welled up in my eyes when I drove home from that Al-Anon meeting. I don’t recall inner child mentions in prior meetings. But three people brought up inner child that day. I took the cue from my Higher Power! I asked my inner child what she wanted & needed after greeting her lovingly & apologetically.  “I’m so sorry I haven’t given you the loving attention you deserve my sweet young self.” I visualized being with her in a beautiful place in nature, writing whatever inspirations came to us while our horses grazed in a mountain meadow of tall grass & wild flowers. Blissful serenity! It had been far too long since I took the time to simply be in loving connection with her. Thank you, God/Source/Universe! – for delivering a wonderful reminder that there is a little girl in me who loves mountain meadows, wild flowers, horses and – butterflies! It’s time to emerge from my long slumber and look with at my own needs with eyes of love.
