What is Butterfly Woman?
The path of beauty, grace, delight, transformation and fertilization
“Butterfly Woman mends the erroneous idea that transformation is only for the tortured, the saintly, or only for the fabulously strong. The Self need not carry mountains to transform. A little is enough. A little goes a long way. A little changes much. The fertilizing force replaces the moving of mountains. Butterfly Maiden pollinates the souls of the earth: It is easier that you think, she says. She is shaking her feather fan, and she’s hopping, for she is spilling spiritual pollen all over the people who are there, Native Americans, little children, visitors, everyone. This is the translator of the instinctual, the fertilizing force, the mender, the rememberer of old ideas.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes, “Women Who Run With The Wolves”
Are you Ready to Fly?
Is this your year to go from struggling Caterpillar Self to radiant Butterfly Woman?
Many women are playing at being Caterpillar Self: struggling, hiding, wanting, longing, complaining, trying hard, but spinning their wheels in place. They are doing the “dirty work” or trapped in duty scripts or they cannot believe that there is another way to work, to be or to communicate their message: a way that brings them delight. BUT there IS another way. Are you ready to let go of your Caterpillar Self? Are you ready to build your Dream Chrysalis? And more to the point, are you ready to become Butterfly Woman, open your wings and fly in your true, radiant colors to illuminate the world with your radiance? Take this self-assessment to find out, and you will find the Butterfly Woman Path.
Embody your Purpose
Your purpose is who you are. It is a part of you that longs to be expressed
and embodied. That’s what you are here for, so get to it!
Are you stuffing your days with a “quick succession of busy nothings?” Jane Austen had it right when she had her protagonist speak these words. Some people feel happy with working in a reasonably decent environment to earn a living, spending time with their loved ones and watching TV or practicing a hobby on their spare time. That’s a good life for them. But there are others ~are you among them?~ to whom this routine spells death. If you are one these people, understand this:
Your Soul is older.
You are called to another order.
Just survival is ~for you~ torture.
You were made for a vaster purpose.
Nothing will do for you except to understand, embody and practice the purpose for which you were created. You came here to serve a larger scope.
Bless your Success
Give yourself permission to succeed, be happy and be fulfilled.
What is holding you back? What obscure, invisible force inside you convinces you that you are not good enough, not ready or inadequate to launch that book, project or business? Why do you keep fixing yourself, tinkering with details or going for one more certificate instead of stepping into the limelight? You have centuries of prohibitions in your Herstory, sister. You were not allowed to vote, earn a living or have a bank account until the other day. The great philosophers in history ~from Aristotle to Nietzsche~ all said that you were incompetent either explicitly or implicitly. Is it a wonder that you doubt? As a woman you need to give yourself Emotional Permission to succeed and you need to release the Emotional Prohibitions that centuries of invalidation have imprinted in your DNA and your psyche. In three words, you need to BLESS YOUR SUCCESS.
Activate your Creative Genius
Activate your Creative Genius to enjoy and express your Creative Power and to engage your Creative Mind in quickening your solutions.
You are a Creative Genius! Yes, you. When I tell people that I am a Creative Genius they eye me suspiciously. Why? It’s simple: most of us were trained to believe that there’s nothing special in us, that geniuses are extremely smart people like Einstein and that we are not that creative. In fact, being creative has a bad rap! But it’s all a lie. You’ve been shrunk into a tiny box. It’s time to spring out of the box, like a bold Jackie-in-the-Box who breaks her attachment. It’s time to take back your genius. Know this without a shadow of a doubt: you were born as a creator. Creativity is what makes you human, and you have it. In fact, you cannot NOT create. What may be happening is that you are creating more of the same old story because you were trained in the belief that you cannot design your own way, that you cannot be the author of your own life story. This has trapped you in the habit of distrusting and dismissing your imagination. But that trust is exactly what turns your Creative Genius off. It’s time to turn it on!
Awaken the Goddess
BE the Goddess dancing inside you.
By Maria Mar
You feel her in your body. You hear her whispering in your Soul. She is the muse in your creative process. She is the lighthouse calling the boats of your thoughts towards the shores of your heart. She is the spirit that moves in the Inscapes of your Being. But when you try to make her visible, she seems to hide. When you go about in your routine, she seems to go away, leaving you to struggle with your noisy mind. And when you want to embody her, to blossom in your full potential… well… let’s say that she seems to cruelly fly away, leaving you clumsily stuttering through your day. NO! It is not that hard! Discover how to awaken your Goddess in every cell of your body and express her radiantly in the world. When you embody your Goddess, you know, value and share your Female Gifts with the world. You work in a state of grace and easily free your radiance so that you live a life of beauty, grace and harmony.
Lead from the Feminine
Lead from the co-creative Feminine Principle,
through collaboration, co-creation and the Power of Presence.
Are you allergic to the word “leadership?” If you are like many women I know, including myself some years back, then you squirm in your chair just to hear it mentioned. Why?
- It’s not that you don’t want to help others.
- It’s not that you think leaders are bad or you would be a bad leader.
The allergy women have developed to this world runs deeper and goes waaay back.
But there is a Medicine for that allergy. It’s called Co-creative Feminine Leadership. I promise you won’t sneeze… and you may even smile!
