Kin Essence - Lessen the distractions to lead you to a higher state of consciousness
Closely related to the butterfly, the moth starts its life as larvae, which becomes a caterpillar, before undergoing the epic transformation into a moth as their final stage of life. If the butterfly is a toddler, then the moth is a great-grandmother, wise, worldly, gentle, peaceful. Lovingly guiding us through our transitions with steadfast confidence and eyes-wide-open awareness.
As the master of disguise, the moth uses colours and patterns on its wings to confuse, distract and warn off predators. Adult moths don’t eat at all. When choosing not to consume and to simply absorb and enjoy the things in life that a free to all, allows us to reach a truly heightened state of being.
Moths also use a technique of celestial navigation to help position themselves in a straight path during flight. In this higher state of awareness they show us the art of trusting and knowing that there is a force at play much bigger and stronger than ourselves, and to see that no matter which path we take, it will be the one that the universe has assigned to us.
Moths are naturally drawn to the light, showing us that in choosing the path towards the light, we are saying yes to taking the high road and in turn shed our energy blocks so that we may let more light into our lives.
