“I was a butterfly with unpainted wings. My Father of true birth did cry and colors He waited to delicately apply. As my colors revealed, he was my gentle shield and the wounds that covered my colors were healed.“ -Wendy
The butterfly will never realize its potential without its struggle. If you were to see the struggling butterfly and open its cocoon it would fall to the ground and die. The pressure of breaking free is what pushes fluid into the butterfly’s wings, expanding them and revealing both its magnificent color and its potential to soar.
All of humanity has something to breakthrough. This is the nature of our broken world. Simply facing a struggle doesn’t mean you have failed. We are all somewhere on the journey and we need each other. Many have internal roadblocks, have unknowingly built walls of self-preservation or have clinched to untrue ideals. These things cover us up. They tuck us away. They hide who we are and all we have to offer, stealing our joy and causing us to settle for less than we’re designed for. The process of breaking free is what allows us to live into our true authentic selves. We must be willing to fight our way out.
I’ve experienced this over and over as I’ve worked to break through my own debilitating fear, crippling anxiety, anger, loss, broken theology, and deep wounds. I know it’s possible to break out of deep brokenness because I’ve done it and seen it repeatedly.
The cocoon, or self-imposed prison, is not meant to be permanent. Circumstances may have put you in there, but you get to choose if you want to get out and change your path. It’s time to break through the outer shell. It can feel like falling when you’re learning how to fly. As your breakthrough coach, I offer you support, partnering with you on this journey to profound freedom.
