6 Signs You’re Entering Butterfly Mode (You’re Awakening & Want To Spread Your Wings)

Are you finding it hard to relate to friends and family the way you used to? 

You’re not alone.

Millennial women are facing the most interesting time in the history of work, love and life.

Everything that our mothers and grandmothers knew to be true, and taught us, is changing. 

We were raised to believe and think a certain way growing up but our education and life experiences, as women in the 21st Century, is changing the way we look at love, life and work and how we relate to the world around us.

I mean a woman won’t even date a guy if he’s not vegan today! haha

All jokes aside, women are rising up and wanting to leave a mark on the world more than ever. We’re seeing a world-wide shift to spirituality and we’re seeing women create thriving, conscious businesses’ thanks to this little thing called the internet.

Women are seeing their sisters and friends experience deep change on a spiritual level, achieving things beyond their wildest dreams and living their dream life, all while wondering how can I make this possible for myself? 

It’s an evolutionary process and it’s why we all awaken at different times. Imagine if every caterpillar turned into a butterfly at the same time? 

I don’t really know what would happen but we need the caterpillars. They are the symbol of transformation in the animal kingdom. A beautiful lesson for humanity.

Having an awakening (entering butterfly mode) doesn’t mean that you’re whole life up until this point was a lie, it just means’ you’re entering a new stage of your life. Exactly like the caterpillar, that becomes a butterfly…You can’t become the butterfly without being the Caterpillar first.

It’s all part of the process.

Don’t deny yourself that. 

It can be tough when you’re struggling to relate to your once comfortable life. 

You may have a lot of questions around well what now and what’s waiting for me on the other side?

Well I’m not a psychic but I do know you’re awakening is the most empowered state you can evolve into. Awareness of the world around you and how you relate in relationships is the key to your Queendom. 

It’s how you choose to navigate this new awareness and stage of your life that will ultimately determine how you experience it. 

It’s actually a really, really exciting journey, if you allow yourself to enjoy it and not get weighed down by the opinions of other unawakened souls.

The only downside is you can’t take everyone with you. But those who wait for you on the otherside are ready to embrace you with open arms and you’ll finally FEEL at HOME (more than you ever have before). 

My awakening began with my last heartbreak. I vowed to myself, after him, I would never feel that way again. And I didn’t, except I blocked myself off from connecting with good and worthy men for years. I knew my heart was closed but I also didn’t beat myself up for it. I knew a healing needed to take place. I needed to reconnect with my inner child first and learn to trust myself again before entering into a new partnership. 

In my awakening and seeking more conscious relationships I also began to notice I was having a crisis at work. I hated the 5 am alarm clock, I hated having just enough money at the end of every paycheck, to put aside some money, for my one short holiday each year, I hated being paid less than what my male colleagues we’re getting paid (despite us doing the exact same job), I hated feeling like my ideas weren’t valuable, I hated that my life revolved around work instead of my work revolving around my life and I hated knowing no matter how hard I worked, I could be replaced in an instant, without a second thought.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably felt like this.

It seems like everything’s all happening at once and you ask yourself daily, ‘What even is life?!’

It’s in this that you have two choices. 

One is to embrace your awakening and spread your wings as the butterfly you were born to be or stay in the cocoon and never spread your wings and stay stuck somewhere you were only supposed to be for a little while…

The choice is yours. 

When you realise you get to decide how you interpret each new stage of your life, without worrying and accommodating other people’s feelings about who you really are and what role you play in their life, you give yourself permission to spread your wings and FLY.

The traditional path wants you to shrink and and fit in (stay the Caterpillar) so you don’t stand out too much but the new path wants you to reconnect with your inner child, unleash your unique inner essence and unleash your extraordinary life! (Become the butterfly and spread your beautiful wings!)

Sometimes we’re not ready to pursue what we’re really passionate about (life tip: you’ll never be 100% ready). The butterfly still has to break out of it’s cocoon and struggles to do so.

Sometimes we are ready but we just don’t have the tools, resources and support to help us get to where we want to be.

And sometimes, it’s not about learning anything new, it’s about unlearning everything we’ve ever been taught to be, do or have.

I was ready for a major life change and you know what they say, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. 

I came across The Six Figure Mentors in 2018 and started my affiliate marketing business shortly after and I never looked back.

So my question to you is, are you ready to upgrade your life and spread your wings?

Here’s 6 signs you might be ready for a major life change:

1. You’re going through a midlife crisis.

You might be experiencing a mid-life crisis in your career, relationship, family life, or finances (mine was in all four areas! Lucky me), this is usually a sign that a change is required to feel normal again. It represents an opportunity for you to learn about yourself, what you want, and how to make the necessary changes to feel the joy and peace you are desperately seeking. A mid-life crisis is nothing more than an invitation to grow and evolve as a person, while being courageous enough to set new boundaries and create a life you’re truly proud of and happy with. Don’t let a little turbulence make you think that your life is doomed.

2. You’ve had enough and you know it’s now or never.

You’ve had enough. The manipulation, the self-centred agendas, the workplace gossip and bullying, you just can’t hack it anymore. You’ve been thinking about making a change for a while and you’ve realised the feelings of lack, unhappiness, frustration, and negativity are seeping into your soul. You’re ready to rewrite your life story and make it one with more flexibility, security and adventure! Also with more joy, peace, abundance, and success and you’re willing to do what it takes to create a life you love because you know you’re worthy.

3. You’re tired of always being in survival mode.

You know, on a fundamental level, life is meant to be fun, adventurous and experienced in such a way that brings you joy and fulfillment, daily. Paying the bills and getting by each month is slowly killing your creative and adventurous soul. You’re constantly dreaming and talking about the day you can finally do what you love and live your life purpose. You don’t want to just survive anymore. Your soul is telling you it’s your time to thrive!

4. Your current life path doesn’t match your dream life.

You’ve got a dream and as you look around, you know that something has to change. The path you’re on isn’t leading you to where you want to be in 2 or even 5 years from now. You know something has to shift dramatically to make room for what you’re calling in. Whether you quit your job and backpack through Europe for 12 months or build a cabin in the woods to write that amazing novel you’ve been daydreaming about, something big needs to happen and you know in order for your dreams to become reality, you have to embrace all the change that’s coming and take a leap.

5. Your soul is calling you to be, do and have more.

You feel a burning internal desire for more. Your vision plagues you at night and while it isn’t completely clear just yet, you know, as soon as you say ‘yes’ to the voice inside your head, things will begin to fall into place. Your faith is strong but your intuition is stronger. It’s not a question of ‘If’ anymore, it’s a question of ‘When’ and are you ready to receive all the abundant blessings that are stuck in your murky vibration? 

6. You’re reading this blog post.

You clicked this blog post and read til the very end because you know this is 100%, unequivocally you and you aren’t even fronting. You’ve been feeling like this for a long time and the magnetic force of inspiration pulling you to your purpose has led you here. Listen to your heart. Take the leap.There’s no secret to making the ‘right’ choice, all you have to do is take inspired action and the path will illuminate itself for you. It’s that simple.

The 6 Mistakes You’re Making That Are Costing You Your Happiness

I was going through a quarter-life crisis and found myself completely depressed at 28 years old. I was single, no kids, and feeling completely unappreciated in my job. I was extremely anxious about the future because moving forward would mean taking 3 steps back…and even then it wasn’t a guarantee that I’d actually be progressing in life or happy for that matter…
