In this article you will explore the essential role of imagination and creativity in your journey to embody your purpose and manifest your dream. You will find out the key focus that will carry you from “here” to “there.”

This is the third article in a series of articles describing Your Flight to Greatness: your Metamorphosis from Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Woman.

Use the tabs above to move through the articles in the series.


Butterfly You

Butterfly Woman PosterAt the very core, the metamorphosis of Caterpillar You into Butterfly You is about:

  • Releasing your Social Identity as Caterpillar Self and owning your radiant Essence and its unique gifts.

  • Touching the seed of perfection within you to experience that you are perfect for your purpose.

  • Aligning your emotions, thoughts and actions with your true nature, your Butterfly Self.

And that’s easier said than done. Here’s why:

As I described in the previous article, once caterpillar has turned to mush, new cells begin to emerge. They are called Imaginal Cells and no one knows how they come into being. They are not the caterpillar’s cells. They are not the mush cells. They are a completely different vibration.

At this stage in your own journey, imagination and creativity play a leading role. They don’t call these new cells Imaginal for nothing!

From a shamanic viewpoint, Imaginal Cells come from the imagination of the being that ~no longer identifying itself as caterpillar~ calls forth its identity as butterfly. They come from that potential in the Butterfly egg that now bursts into blossom.

Here’s the challenge.

Imaginal Cells are so completely different from the original caterpillar or ooze cells that they are perceived as a virus by the ooze cells, which attack them.

Your old beliefs, habits and ways of perceiving will rear up and will attack your dreams, invalidate your talents, criticize your creations and paint awful pictures, all designed to destroy those precious Imaginal Cells.

Many women give up at this point, defeated by their Inner Enemies.

The emerging butterfly, however, will not give up. Even though the Imaginal Cells are being killed off, nothing stops the butterfly dream in the chrysalis, and more Imaginal Cells grow until they are a cluster, then entire strings, and finally a community of differentiated cells that become butterfly.


Shapeshifting into your new reality is about consistently affirming the Butterfly You and releasing the Caterpillar You. It is about using your creativity to paint a new world; the world of butterfly.

When Butterfly You finally spreads its wings, the act of co-creation is complete. You have tapped into the potential that Life Mother granted you at birth. Seizing it, you have created your dream in your life. You have become your Dream.

From now on, no matter what is going on in your life, no matter what results you get or what circumstances you face, you will feel, know and fly as the radiant, unique Butterfly Woman you are.
