The Magick That Takes Place In The Chrysalis


transformationYesterday, while spending the day with a sweet friend of mine at Knotts Berry Farm connecting with our inner child through laughter and screams, we also shared some great conversations. One of them led us to discuss the magick of the butterfly, and the miracle transformation the caterpillar goes through to emerge as such. It felt significant.

That conversation inspired this post, as the pure alchemy of that transmutation it undergoes is truly worthy of note, and perhaps you may not fully realize what a profound process the caterpillar goes through in order to renew itself into the enchanted winged one it becomes.

This goes in line with my post, November Thoughts ~ Becoming a Butterfly and may be of interest to all of you “cocooners” out there.

The caterpillar doesn’t merely go hide and sleep in the cocoon and then sprout wings, but nearly fully dissolves into a liquid inside the chrysalis and from memory-retaining imaginal disks, magickally metamorphosizes.

It is from these transform agent-cells that they reconstruct and rearrange themselves to grow anew, after they digest themselves into a primordial soup from the digestive enzyme they release within the cocooning phase.

I love the symbolism and implications of this and how much it resonates with my current experience. I’ve been through the cocooning stage many times, but this time I consciously feel the process explained here.

Here’s an article by Daven Hiskey that shares more about this:

Caterpillars “Melt” Almost Completely Before Growing Into Butterflies In The Chrysalis

  1. Magic – creative is what you belong to. One of my music directors was amazed by your art Gallery in Woodland Hills, that was amazing!

  2. In awed silence, as we stand in the presence of a great mystery…

  3. There is so much magic to behold in this process and yet for some reason there is one thing that has captivated my attention for a few years now each time I have the privilege of finding a chrysalis under a leaf or windowsill and that is the ‘seam’ of perfectly placed little points of what appears to be gold ~ Such divine order ~ I Love that ❤
