We have all heard the caterpillar to butterfly analogy to describe the transformational process we are going through. And I would say it’s pretty accurate. We are being crushed and pulverized and spun into a magnificent butterfly at the other end. But we ask, how long? When do we get to fly?
And unfortunately for the human caterpillar, there is no answer that could possibly satisfy. But there is one thing for sure. The caterpillar doesn’t remain in the cocoon forever. Eventually it is transformed and has wings to fly.
Exactly when that happens isn’t up to the human. There are processes that take place on levels that the human couldn’t possibly understand. And those are being taken care of by the soul.
Your soul knows the amount of change that the human can handle and will make sure that its human counterpart isn’t compromised by things moving too quickly. That the mind and the body aren’t overloaded from too much too soon.
The human tends to be worried he isn’t doing enough to speed it along, but really it’s happening anyway. It’s in process, regardless of the fears and concerns of the human.
The real question is, do we want it to be a more graceful experience along the way, or one with so much resistance that it makes it chaotic? Or, more chaotic than necessary?
Even the letting go of our past, of our wounds, of the aspects that try to keep us stuck in the past…..we are not responsible for those. Our soul is in charge of that, too.
The human is just here to experience it. To experience the soul’s presence, and to enjoy life.
While it can feel daunting at times, and confusing, and frustrating, there is one constant. Your soul loves you deeply. It knows your needs and heart’s desires.
And it asks of you to just trust it. Trust your soul to bring you the joy you deserve. Trust her to bring it to you in the best way. A way you as the human probably don’t expect. Or understand. You the human have an amazing imagination, but it will never be as amazing as your soul’s.
So why not let her deliver the goods to you in a way that will blow you away?
Invite your soul in close when you are sad, or scared, and let her soothe you. Ask her to help you to see your issues from her perspective. That will help you in ways you can’t imagine.
She wants you to know that things may seem to get worse for a time, but to trust that too.
She is asking you to trust that she is guiding you and transforming you in just the right way and in just the right timing tailored for you.
She is asking you to just relax. To know that there is nothing to do. That you have done nothing wrong. She wants you to know that she is the one who is doing the transforming, and that you are just where you need to be.
