“When the butterfly emerges from her chrysalis, there is nothing left of the caterpillar she once was, not even a memory. Therefore, she flies without hesitation, instinctively understanding her purpose. She knows what she has never been taught. She follows the path of migration that she was never shown. Yet, she knows and arrives at her destination at the right moment, with only her instinct as her guide. And when she arrives, she is surrounded by other butterflies who have made the same trek. And they go on beautifully together.”
What is “The Buttafly Effect?”
The Buttafly Effect™ is the result of an evolution, a revolution, and an emergence that occurs within the heart and mind of every Black woman that as she rises to meet her greatness as the innovator of beauty, fashion, spirituality, femininity, home and hearth. The time has come for us as Black women to remember who we are and reclaim our rich cultural heritage.
Personal metamorphosis doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It is an act of conscious evolution. It is an agreement between one’s will and intuition to manifest that which your ancestors and inner Goddess already know to be so. Much like the butterfly, personal metamorphosis takes time, dedication, and focus. For me, I’ve come to realize that my entire life is metamorphosis. I am constantly changing, growing, and becoming. Over the years, I’ve learned to accept this flux and even master it to some degree. I used to bemoan the constant ebb and flow of my life’s experiences. I got tired of being “sometimes up, sometimes down, sometimes level to the ground.” I didn’t understand the universal laws of frequency and vibration as it pertained to how I was experiencing my life. I didn’t understand my own divinity. I couldn’t place myself within the context of my own rich cultural heritage. It wasn’t until I became aware of these invisible forces and their affect on me that I was able to effectively change my mind about what it meant to be a Black woman.
The purpose of this blog is 3-fold:
- To share my personal journey of growth and development as a Black woman;
- To enlighten, inform, and support Black women;
- To do my part to restore the Divine Feminine energy to the consciousness of Black women so that we can reclaim our places as the Queens and Goddesses that we are.
