Butterflies in my Tummy!

Butterflies are Graceful, Enchanting And free
They are the epitome that caterpillars never give up.

However today I would like to mention butterflies in a different way.

I’m sure having butterflies is a common occurrence.

Why do I get butterflies in my tummy?

Isn’t it amazing how our body is interconnected.

The stomach/digestive system in linked to a person’s thoughts and emotions.

Stomach butterflies are associated with [according to scientists] the body’s fight or flight response.  When the brain perceives a possible threat to our survival it sets the alarm.  Raising our heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. The hormones and adrenaline is released and we become a wicked mess.

I guess in a way butterflies are a sensitivity to fight or flight response.    While having butterflies in the tummy every now and again isn’t harmful but if it becomes an interference in our lives then it would be a good idea to seek help.

I still think it amazing that if we aren’t sensitive to our own thoughts, just plain nerves or even problems, crises and reactions; the butterflies will come out to play and cause a disturbance to make you listen.

Sometimes the butterflies are a hint that we are indeed alive and well.

So

Don’t ignore the butterfly

It’s the fluttering of the lone butterfly.
That quiet voice.
Softer then an ache.
Not as harsh as nawing
It’s just enough flutter
To cause to pause.

Did you have cause to pause
Today?
Did you stop?
See many blessings
Amidst the thorns?
Smell the flowers?
Aroma of a meal?
Chatter of family
And friends
The squirrel
In the back yard,

That quiet inner voice
That says fix it
On your end,
Make a move,
Lift someone up,
The quarrel you had
Make it right,
Apologize
Or
Stand your ground
In respect,
Times awastin
Don’t put off
What needs to be
Done – today,
Here nature chirping
Just a little louder
Don’t take the unresolved
To bed,
Don’t upset
The
Butterfly…..©
