I just finished reading this book that is a part of the Medicine Woman series.
I so enjoy Lynn Andrews books because she writes in a way that is easy to
follow along. This story is about her reclaiming her personal power as a woman.
This is a paragraph from the next to the last page:
Lynn says, “And what does the butterfly represent, Anges (her Native American teacher)?
Agnes searched my face with kind eyes, “I remember when I was young, a little girl,
some old people told me a story that I believe to this day. They said that Great Spirit
had made the butterfly to show us how to live.”
“And how is that?”, Agnes?
“The life of the caterpillar transforms into another life- the beautiful butterfly.
It teaches us that all of life is transitory. The butterfly is enlightened! Another gift from Great Spirit.
You see they are the ancestor spirits, and they have returned to the Butterfly Tree.”……
The interesting thing is I have been working on these pieces before I ever picked out
this book from the library and I always find synchronicity fascinating.
I guess it is those little things that happen that I try to pay attention to that
let me know I am doing the right thing, at the right time.
p.s. Kari, thank you for inspiring me to pick up books again!
