Angel signs are everywhere! We featured a story on “Feathers” a few months ago….and then most recently “Dimes” as signs that Angels are in our presence. Today? We are onto to “BUTTERFLIES!” Yesterday was a day that was filled with Monarch Butterflies for me. They were everywhere…. I even found a perfectly preserved (past it’s expiration date) Monarch butterfly… on the sidewalk. At that point…. I knew it was a story and something I must share with you.
The lesson of the butterfly is letting go of old behavior and expounding into the next phase of existence. Each of us transforms through multiple stages in our life. It is only through exertion that we emerge into who we will be next. Ask for butterfly help when:
• You need help organizing a project or detailing the sequence of steps to complete it.
• You know it is time for a change and need the courage to break free from your “cocoon.”
• You are experiencing a major life change.
• You take things too seriously.
Access butterfly power by…
• Noticing colors you are drawn to and trying to discern what they mean for you.
• Choosing a habit you no longer want, developing and implementing a plan to change it.
• Observing butterflies in their natural environment (a park or preserve) and noting what you are thinking when one comes into view.
• Wrapping yourself tightly in a blanket for a few minutes and then slowly unwrapping it and emerge. Does this seem like a metaphor for anything in your life right now?
• Dance! Alone or with someone, release the energy to propel you forward.
So keep your eyes open in search of Butterflies…. dance to your hearts delight! We only get one shot in this lifetime to live the lives that God intended us to live. Live life with your heart open and throw caution to the wind…. Live a life of a butterfly!

So until our new site is finished…. we will be posting stories on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with our most sacred “Spiritual Sunday” back by popular demand! As always…. Our hearts are filled with profound gratitude for your visiting WWW.FABULOUS365.COM
With all my love,
What a wonderful metaphor of Life!!
You’ve captured the beauty and significance of these beautiful creatures, I hold my breath when one flys by, they r so magnificent and bring such serenity. I love the symbolic way you have compared their Life and energy with our own!!
And Thank- you for clarifying where you are with the site, on those off days you can find me searching madly thru spam and trash wondering “where is she? Did she take a day off or sleep in??”
Bravo my beautiful Angel, and a huge heartfelt hug to you on Mommies Day!!
Love you doll!!
When my brother in law passed away, the family saw a white butterfly fly into their house. From that point, a white butterfly became a sign that his spirit was nearby. Thank you for this endearing post on Mother’s day.
Happy Mothers Day Laura! Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait to see what’s next with fabulous365!!
I hope you had the most fabulous Mother’s Day! You have a beautiful family! I hope you were able to enjoy them over the weekend!
I hope your kids gave you the spoiling you deserve for Mother’s Day! Love & blessing to you and yours!
I had the BEST Mother’s Day ever! I hope you and all the other moms out there had a great day! Lets make every day great!
Ever since you told me about finding feathers and angels being around, I can’t get that out of my mind!
These are really good tips to live by.
I too have noticed an affluent number of butterflies in my daily presence.
This is a very good post. I think everyone can relate and take a look at the bigger picture and make changes within themselves.
Life is like one big butterfly cycle…the caterpillar turning into a cocoon and transforming into a beautiful being.
I hate change to be perfectly honest but this blog really puts things in perspective.
We all have things with work and in our personal lives that can seem overwhelming but with the butterfly theory, we all can go from sheltered cocoons to free butterflies.
I love your spiritual being Laura; you are always sharing your worldly spirit with your faithful readers.
After going through a lengthy and hard divorce, it seemed like I was being tied down forever. But now I feel free as a bird and can focus on the changes I need to make in order to reestablish my world.
I love the picture of you with wings…so perfect for this Spiritual Sunday!
LOVE the wings! That is AWESOME!!!
I’m a total believer in signs like this! I often see two butterflies together and I just know it’s my parents letting me know they are there!
I love Spiritual Sunday!! I really like being able to read your blog on a Sunday morning, while sipping my coffee and taking in the weekend. Thank you for always being here for us!
How did I miss Spiritual Sunday?!?! Great post for Mother’s Day! I hope it was a great one for you & your families!
LOVE BUTTERFLIES AND LOVE YOU!!!!
