February 1, 2016 Totem Card of the Day - Butterfly

The Butterfly flutters in to our path today and say we are to enjoy the day! Be light and frivolously go about enjoying small pleasures of the day such as a cookie or donut with your coffee that you may not normally have! Or perhaps its an extra moment from your day to touch base with a friend or family member you haven't spoken to in awhile, but whatever it is.... ENJOY IT simply because you can. We so often get caught up in the mundane and routine things of our daily life, forgetting that each and every moment we have is a rare and beautiful gift. So instead of sitting grumpy this morning add some positives to that cuppa brew and enjoy.... breathe in the aroma of it and let it set your path to a great pace for the day!

The Butterfly is connected to the elemental Air. It represents to many cultures the story of Transformation. It teaches us how to shift, change and move with whatever life brings to our paths. This helps us to learn how to work through events and situations that we encounter in our lives so that we can move through changes in what appears to be effortless with grace allowing our Sacred Hoops to come into and stay balanced.

Butterfly shares with us the gift of understanding that we all have purpose, we are all part of a grander plan, that we all exist to complete the balance needed in the world we live in. Without each of us inputting our energies, our purposes… other things would not come to fruition. Such as the pollen that is collected when they land in a grouping of flowers, when they move from place to place they assist the species in continuing to exist. We too are much like the Butterfly, for without each of us to contribute our efforts, our knowledge sharing it with our young people, with each other… ideas and cultures would eventually cease to exist.

Butterfly teaches us that we need to quiet our minds to hear the echoes of our souls, to look around you and appreciate all that is Sacred. Teachings are also about how we move through our lives transforming and constantly changing. As we are seeded into the womb where we begin our earth journeys growing and nurturing to prepare to enter the world, we are much like the Butterfly in the cocoon until we emerge slowly transforming into what and who we are to become.

Throughout our lives this occurs as we move through the changes in our life. So don’t fight the changes, rather honor the process of it as your Soul grows and expands into all that it can be… the beautiful soul that is an intricate part of the Human Race.

So today take time and honor who you are, remembering that you and all that you are is meant to be for a purpose and wonderful reason…. Take a moment to breathe, take a moment to revel in becoming understanding that you are important to all life!

"I am Dedicated to Educating and sharing the Native culture with the World. It is not enough merely to teach the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music... the Arts...the stories..."

Hi Bearmedicine,  Thanks for getting back to me =)

If you're going to write about the energy of a specific month (say April or May), please make sure to submit the article at least 6-8 weeks in advance so that we have enough time to assess it.

I did really enjoy the two articles that you posted on the Orca and the Butterfly, and if you'd like to take either of those and work them into a post on animal totems on how they help (without it being a card for a specific day) that could be another option. Please just keep our guidelines in mind regarding article length, self-promotion (only in the BIO) and the time for the turn around.

Thank you!

Regina... this is My Deck I created from My Artwork.  the insights for each card are mine and given to me by Spirit and gained from teachings I have received from Elders over my lifetime as well.

I appreciate the comments...and if you would be interested in me doing some Animal totem writing for you without being the card of the day, like say a Medicine wheel  component such as I did in another post...I think was the Snow Goose... which refers to a month long cycle I would be happy to do that.  All the material presented is that of my own.

Hi Bear Medicinewalker,

Thanks for posting this lovely article. My name is Regina, I'm the new Metaphysics editor here at OM Times. I left a few comments on your more recent post on the Orca and just wanted to highlight that we need to make the same adjustments here, so it fits our submission guidelines:

- We need a title that doesn't include the date as it wouldn't be published on the 1st Feb 2016. If you're planning on doing a series of posts maybe "Animal Totem Card of the Day: The Butterfly" would do (or just Totem Card of the Day: The Butterfly), but I'll leave that to you.

- Article length: 700 - 1200 words, you're at 567 so we need to expand a bit.

- Please include your Author Bio at the end (up to 60 words) and include any promotional material there, for example the information on your cards and where they can get them. - If you'd like to submit pictures, please have a look at the guidelines on copyright:


One more question, is this copy from the guidebook for the cards?

Thanks again, and please let me know if you have any questions.
