Butterflies are insects of incredible beauty and amazing complexity. Research has shown that the butterfly is the only living being capable fo changing entirely its genetic structure during the process of transformation: the caterpillar's DNA is totally different from the butterfly. Thus, it is a symbol of total transformation. Some butterflies can imitate a harmful animal and scare away their own predators. They can change their pigment pattern depending on the season. This makes the butterfly incredibly adaptable. American Indians sough the butterfly for guidance in regard to change and happiness. Early Christians believed the butterfly represented the "soul" and the Ancient Greek word for the butterfly was "psyche." In China, two butterflies flying together symbolizes love, bliss and joy. Most cultures view the butterfly as a symbol of rebirth. Let the butterfly guide you as you emerge from your cocoon, and allow it to bring color and light into your life.
