Significance of the Butterfly on the Spiritual Reflections CD
The butterflies on the CD are of great significance to me. Apart from being free- spirited, frivolous, fluttering, distinguished and colorful, the butterfly is a lepidopteron; the type of insect, which at an adult stage, has four wings that are covered with tiny scales.
The butterfly, formally called the 'flutterby' and known in Spanish as a 'mariposa', represents to me change, transformation, growth, maturity, newness, and metamorphosis.
There are four significant changes that occur before you see a butterfly. At first there is the egg, which then becomes the larvae or the caterpillar. Soon however, it becomes the chrysalis sitting still in a dormant, cylindrical shape before unfolding into a beautiful butterfly.
There are three main body parts on a butterfly; the head, the thorax and the abdomen and three pairs of legs. It has two large compound eyes, which to me represents the new perspective that one has as a butterfly and the ability to see the big picture in a different way. It represents an awareness and an enlightenment that is realized only as a butterfly; an awakening that could not have happened as a chrysalis.
The butterfly plays an important role in assisting pollination to take place. By depositing pollen on a flower or plant, the fertilization process will begin. Similarly, when one that is learned or enlightened or has undergone some kind of change, one has the ability to plant seeds of learning in the minds of others and allow them also to be awakened or conscious.
The butterfly is known to withstand hurricanes and strong winds and can travel tens of thousands of miles over continents, before ever dying. The life span of a butterfly is said to be still uncertain.
