Do you ever feel like bug soup?
No I’m not referring to some new Asian fusion cuisine. I’m talking about what a sweet little caterpillar goes through when transforming into a beautiful butterfly. During metamorphosis, the caterpillar literally becomes a liquid filled with imaginal cells. Then, like magic the imaginal cells put themselves back together into a new form, becoming that gorgeous butterfly.
It’s the perfect metaphor for what happens when we are in the midst of a big change in our lives. We need to go through that same process. Caterpillar, cocoon, disintegrate, emerge as the butterfly.
Martha Beck, Lissa Rankin and I like to refer to this time period of liquifying, when you unsure of what the heck is going on, feeling like you’re as lost as lost can be, as bug soup.
So, let me ask you again. Do you ever feel like bug soup? (Me too!)
I made a video for ya, my fellow butterfly to be.

One of the most important things about the bug soup phase of things it to keep breathing, trusting and surrendering to the transformation afoot. You will emerge as that butterfly…swearsies!
