According to a Papago legend, the Creator made butterflies to gladden his heart when he perceived the impermanence of life. He took a spot of sunlight, some blue from the sky, the whiteness of cornmeal, the blackness of a beautiful girl's hair, the green of pine needles, and the red, purple, and orange of flowers. He put them in a bag which he gave to the children. When the children opened the bag, thousands of multi-colored butterflies danced about them, lighting upon their skin.

     The Medicine of Butterfly is the power to know one's mind and to transform one's life through wisdom. It is a never ending cycle of planting, growing, harvesting rewards, and planting again the seeds of spiritual seeking.

     Butterfly Maiden sees herself in the world. She is aware of herself as a microcosm within the macrocosm. She seeks her truth adorned with the vibrant colors of Gaia, sharing her beauty with no conceit as she joyfully dances through the day.
