Butterfly Maiden Meditation
Sit outside or if you prefer a comfortable room. Put on some meditative music if you are inside, light some incense/sage and a candle. Sit, close your eyes and relax. Take three deep breaths.
Imagine you are in a beautiful meadow. The sun is shining, the birds singing and you can even hear the buzz of bees. It is a perfect Spring day. You see a path and start to follow it through the meadow, taking in your surroundings. As you continue to walk, you notice a large cluster of flowers growing and are surrounded by butterflies. You decide to go over to them as its just so beautiful. You sit by them, watching. Watching how magical they are and its just so peaceful. Butterflies start to land on you and you are in awe.
Then you notice one butterfly that stands out from the rest. How is it different? This butterfly turns to you as it knows you are watching and then flies towards you. It suddenly gets bigger and turns into a beautiful woman. Standing before you she says ‘You wished to connect with me? I am Butterfly Maiden.’ You say hello and thank her for connecting with you.
Take this time to talk to Butterfly Maiden. Ask her anything, maybe she has a message for you.
After a while and when you are finished talking and connecting, Butterfly Maiden says ‘I am always here. I look after the animals, plants and trees. Feel me in the breeze, the grass, the rivers. I am Nature herself. When you feel you need to connect, sit in Nature and talk with me. I will help and guide you.’ You thank her and she turns back into a butterfly and flies away.
When you are ready, take three deep breaths and come back into the room.
Write down your experience. What was she like? What was her message to you? Was there anything else in the meditation that you noticed that could be a message or a sign?
