Personally, I use the Butterfly as a powerful tool to regain both physical and mental balance.
On an earthly way it reminds me to listen to my body, my breathing and mental focus to stay grounded to this world.
On the spiritual side it reminds me to respect all that is around. A peaceful way to remind myself to be humble for the energy I receive from both the earth and the spirits, both receiving and giving back.
The Butterfly is a way of meditation that requires as much as you are willing to give. More input gives you more output.
