"...if we could see inside we would witness one of the most extraordinary changes in the animal kingdom: Metamorphosis”, Sir David Attenborough.
“Human metamorphosis is the transmutation of the physical body into a body of light, done by our higher-self. By transforming ourselves we become a creator.” - Betsy Franco
A butterfly goes through a full metamorphosis process. From the very beginning, its life gives birth from one transformation to another; from an egg to larva (caterpillar), from larva to chrysalis, to eventually spread the wings and fly towards the sun like a butterfly.
What does it take for butterfly, such a beautiful creature, to really become a butterfly? A butterfly has to complete 3 different full phases to finally be able to fly and looking at the process from philosophical prism we could draw parallels with phases of a transformation in human life, specifically metamorphosis as self-empowerment. When life throws you in a maze of adventures with downs and ups, we humans tend to stop believing in ourselves and in our dreams, and get into the deepest depression. We then often have to go through a transformation phase by starting from
scratch, recollecting all pieces of our previous identity and putting those pieces together again in a new way: into a stronger, more beautiful and more confident version of ourselves. We are probably at our worst at some point during our adolescence. However, when we find ourselves we are pretty amazing like the butterfly. From a little vulnerable egg turning into a delicate, winged creature.
