A borboleta ; The butterfly

Ela ergueu as mãos no ar, com as palmas para cima, fechou os olhos e mentalizou um pequeno ovo. A imagem se materializou, pairando sobre suas mãos. O ovo se partiu e dele saiu uma pequena lagarta verde, se movendo com certa dificuldade. Mas a lagarta logo cresceu e foi envolvida por um casulo.
Todos ao redor, especialmente Rebecca, prestavam atenção, curiosos. O casulo foi escurecendo e secando, então se quebrou e dele saiu uma bela borboleta alaranjada, que voou ao redor de Rebecca e depois saiu pela colônia. Rebecca estava fascinada e os amigos sorriam.
— Agora imagine que o processo pelo qual você está prestes a passar é igual ao dessa borboleta. Mesmo sabendo que irá passar por mudanças desconhecidas, a lagarta enfrenta os momentos de transformação com fé e coragem, pois sabe que, ao final de um período de desafios, chegará uma nova oportunidade de vida, cheia de renovação e oportunidades.

(trecho do livro: Borboletas no Jardim)

She lifted her hands in the air and turned around with her palms facing up. She closed her eyes and brought to mind the image of a small egg. Immediately it appeared, seemingly resting in between her hands. Soon the egg broke open, giving life to a caterpillar. It was hairy and green and moved around with some difficulty. Then it grew quickly until it became completely encased by a tough cocoon.
Everyone around, particularly Rebecca, was paying close attention to Teresa, who continued with the projection. The cocoon changed from a green colour to a darker shade until it broke and a gracious orange butterfly emerged from it and flew beautifully around Rebecca. It then fluttered away, flying all around the colony. Rebecca was amused by what she had just seen, while her spiritual friends were smiling at Teresa.
“Now my dear, imagine the process you are about to go through as being the same as that of a caterpillar. Even knowing that it’s about to experience unknown changes, the caterpillar faces these moments of transformation with faith and bravery because it knows that at the end of this challenging period a new life opportunity filled with renovation and opportunities waits for it.”
