"What Is the Cosmic Butterfly?"
"This ancient Mayan symbol is called the Galactic Butterfly which is said to represent all of the consciousness that has ever existed in this galaxy. It is a symbol of unity which connects people regardless of distance, events, or time. The consciousness of living things, including animals, plants and humans. The consciousness that organized raw materials into a whirling disk of stars, planets and solar systems. God.
The Greeks believed butterflies to be human souls flying to heaven. They also likened them to cognitive thoughts and spirits. This is actually where the term "Psyche" comes from. When a caterpillar forms a cocoon and begins to change, new cells appear called "imaginal cells." They resonate at a different frequency than the old cells making them seem so different that it's immune systems actually attacks them as enemies. These new cells group together and begin to fight back. Organized, unified and resonating together at this new frequency, all inside the chrysalis. Through the birth of creativity the caterpillar slowly begins to realize it's becoming something different, new, wonderful and evolved. Now as a butterfly, the imaginal cells no longer fight to survive. Instead they begin to create. Each cell with it's own assignment. Performing the task that's most natural to it. Creating pigment, wings, and new instincts.The Galactic Butterfly is about shedding old ideas and giving birth to new ones."
