The intention for this morning’s KINRGY workout was “rebirth” and I was reminded of the lifecycle of a butterfly. This is such a powerful concept!
We start out as caterpillars, growing and evolving, stumbling our way through life. Then as life unfolds, we learn through (sometimes painful) experiences, we often create these little cocoons for ourselves in comfort zones. We fill these comfort zones with distractions, vices, etc. We talk ourselves into staying where we are when we’re afraid of going after what we really want in case we’ll fail.
At a certain point, we decide to face our fears and push through the uncertainty. Deciding to keep moving forward despite the pain it might bring. We start to transform from the inside and grow into our true potential. We become the beautiful butterfly we were always meant to be
To become the butterfly, the caterpillar first has to liquify the old version of themselves. It has to break free from that cocoon. This is so in line with a healing journey because it requires going inward and becoming aware of all that you tried to repress. It means feeling the pain and emotions you tried to ignore for so long.
Instead of trying to hide from the fire you decided to walk right through it, and it is through withstanding that fire that we come out the other side reborn. Remember this the next time you’re in the struggle. This process can be difficult and sometimes you need to take a step back to process and rest. Don’t let that become permanent or go back to old ways.
Always keep moving forward because you DESERVE to get to the other side of this pain and have a normal and happy life
With love and light,
