Notes from James C. Butterfly

Let me tell you why I love my last name, Butterfly, so much…

I represent feelings, lightness, elegance and ease. I am a symbol of undertakings. I emerge from my chrysalis, a sign of transformation and change of everything old. In the world of dreams I am a symbol of joy and bliss.

My Family:

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate us with the soul. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.

Different areas of the world interpret butterfly symbolism differently. For example, in Chinese culture, I represent immortality. For the Japanese, a white butterfly represents the souls of the deceased. In Ancient Greece, we represent the psyche or soul.

If you feel stifled in life and need a way to open yourself up again, rely on the butterfly for greater creativity, self-expression, and vitality.
