As I get older I realize how much nature is a reflection of our lives. Let’s take a moment to look at the life of the Butterfly and compare it to our own life cycle.

First we all start out in this world as a mere egg. We hatch and become caterpillars per say… One would think that we are caterpillars until we are big enough to walk but no. We are caterpillars until we bust out of the mundane and learn to fly.

Next is the Caterpillar. Our parents teach us how to survive, that is after all their main objective…  your survival is their most important concern.  It’s quite the task. We crawl through our lives, just trying to get by, trying not to get stepped on, eaten or captured. It’s engrained in us to “just survive”.

Caterpillars molt several times as they grow and so do we. We molt around 4, 10, 14, 16,18,19,20 and so on. We can not see the magic wings growing on the inside, but we can sure feel them. Our souls start to cry out saying “there has to be more to life”. Our restless spirit is where our wings start growing. I really believe the molting happens quicker as our souls cry out that it is time to fly.

Third Stage is where changes start to happen, the Chrysalis: We tend to go though this restlessness as our molting comes quicker and quicker upon us and we either change or pretty much shut down. We feel stuck in our lives and at first we try to accept the things the way they are even though there is a restlessness inside of us that refuses to quit. Some times the monotony of life shadows it but it’s still there. Deep inside. That fire, that desire, that restlessness, those dreams to fly, to be more, it calls us in our sleep, it calls us at dinner, when were driving, it gets stronger and stronger.

Inside we are changing, the spirit (wings) are growing. As much as we try to hush it and hold it back, the world tries to keep us grounded, it can not and will not be contained. A metamorphosis is happening inside of us all. The sooner we stop trying to fight it. And let it happen the happier we will be.

The last stage is the Emergence. The walls of our cocoons get tighter and tighter. They are meant for you to break free of the not so comfortable comfort zone. After all that time, what feels like a forever struggle, you get mad and you break free! It’s a perfectly normal part of life! Get mad, bust through the walls that are holding you like a prison cell. Your own Beautiful Butterfly self is waiting to break free. Fly beautiful fly.

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
