Michaela seems extremely drawn to butterflies. Her favourite toys are a Lamaze firefly (which looks more like a butterfly) and a pair of silky butterflies which came with her play gym. She just seems very drawn to them.
I think butterfly may be one of her totems. Shaun bought her a few dresses in the sale the other day and without me mentioning it to him, three of the four dresses had butterflies on. She was also touching the butterflies printed on one of my dresses yesterday.
Since butterflies can also be a sign from spirit I did wonder whether this is an indication that she will be spiritual. Shaun's mum, who reads tarot with some accuracy herself, was saying the other day when we were reading for each other that she sees Michaela and I having a close relationship when she is older due to us having our spirituality in common, which echoes the intuition I've had since the visions I had in meditation while pregnant that she will be spiritual like me, but will take things even further than I do, have greater gifts than me.
What do you think about the butterfly totem / sign?
Thank you both. I didn't think of the link with my father, which I had intuitions about before Michaela's birth - I felt like he was looking after her when she was not yet ready to be born.
I didn't think of that either Leslie, of course, I should read the Butterfly Maiden entry in the Goddess cards which is the card of Transformation. I'll bet there's some pertinent info for Michaela there.
