Context: Part 3/3 of a throat chakra activation collection that embodies the energy of a relationship where self and inner child are equals. Exploring themes of reinventing situations with safety, self-soothing and what it means and looks like to truly 'hold yourself'. 

Words from the artist: We are blessed with the gift to reinvent ourselves and our creations any time we like. Our changing and growth is a natural and beautiful thing. We can choose not to hold feelings of shame, embarrassment or guilt as we move through life like the butterfly. It is safe to explore spaces of safety to be free like the butterfly spirit - to speak our most potent truths, create, breathe and dance together with all the parts of our magical selves.  

This piece has been reinvented three times and each piece holds supportive energy toward the different seasons that exist within every cycle of growth. 

The story of the butterfly:
The creator looked with compassion as the soon to be butterfly struggled to leave the cocoon. She could sense the fears of the butterfly - but they've already seen me, I looked so different then. Will they still like me? What if I fall when I leap to fly?

The creator held the cocoon so gently in the palm of her hand and said: How can you fall? You are a butterfly. To fly is to be who you are.

To grow is to be aware 
To grow is to forgive
To grow is to repair
To grow is to be seen

To grow is to hold yourself
Through the unsteadiness of it all
To grow is to bring love to things
That need love most of all

To grow is to embrace yourself
Whole and perfect as you are
You: the star and the seed
The creation who moves through it all. 

This artwork is here to provide energetic support: of the butterfly spirit (the energy of transformation and growth), the ocean/water element and the unconditional love our bodies hold for us. The gift of life through a heart that always beats and lungs that help us breathe. 

This collection is designed to be displayed in numerical order. For the other two works see:
