The Human Butterfly – Your Inner Resources

It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog – too embarrassing to mention !

So what was it that sparked my flame to start writing again ?  I am pretty sure it was the Stress Management Certification Course I attended in Boulder Colorado last week with Dr Brian Luke Seaward ( Paramount Wellness Institute )  I was one of  24 other  ”eager to learn” participants  - the only one from the UAE , well worth the long flights to get there. A great mentor and lots of  new learning to apply to life and work in the 21st century &  new lifelong friends from around the USA.

One of the many exercises we did focused around  non  verbal communication through art – with some fabulous creative outcomes !

The butterfly is a symbol of transformation so it made lots of sense to colour in our own butterfly ! Here’s mine !


and here’s a blank  one for you to print off and colour

To add even more depth to this exercise you can write inside the  butterfly wings  the inner resources you use  ( optimism, creativity, patience, resilience ) to cope with challenges.

If there are inner resources that you feel you would like to have to be a stronger part of who you are then write these attributes outside of the butterfly and draw an arrow from the word into the wings – by doing so you send a direct message to your unconscious mind to begin to utilize  these inner resources more often.

Are you ready for a personal transformation ?

Pick up some colored crayons or pastels, put on some gorgeous instrumental music and give your self 10-15 minutes to colour in the wings of your butterfly.

Hang your completed work of art on the fridge or office wall to remind you  of your inner resources.

Here’s a list of colours and their archetypal meanings :

RED : Passionate emotional peaks ( from pleasure to pain ) It can represent either compassion or anger

ORANGE : Suggests a life change ( big or small and often more positive than negative )

YELLOW: Represents energy ( usually a positive message )

GREEN & BLUE : Suggest happiness and joy ( blue may even mean creativity ) These colors also suggest a string sense or desire of roundedness and stability in your environment.

PURPLE/ VIOLET :  Suggest a highly spiritual nature, unconditional love

BROWN : A sense of groundedness and stability

BLACK : Can either represent fear , grief , despair or a sense of personal empowerment

WHITE : Can either mean fear, avoidance, cover up or hope

GREY : Typically represents a sense of ambiguity or uncertainty about some issue you are working on.

What do your colors say ?

Have fun and get ready for a big breakthrough ! What is coming to fruition each and every time is more and ore of your true self !
