Psyche, Greek Goddess of the Soul

Second in the Series

“Goddesses Surround Us”

In Greek the words for “butterfly” and “soul” are the same…”Psyche”.  I think those Ancient Greeks were on to something~ 

The journey of the Monarch Butterfly takes an entire lifetime.  These fragile beings travel from 2,000 to 4,500 kilometers to get from Canada, through the United States with Central Mexican forests as their destination and goal – hibernation in the tropics.

Our journeys within our lifetime, I believe, are just as spectacular as the Monarch.  Our souls are influenced by the journeys we embark upon with our goal being – transformation. 

“Psyche” lives in a garden of Czech glass flowers and gemstone critters on a rock of Orange Calcite.
