Thank you for sharing this. I was given a camel with a rhinestone in it's eye early in recovery. I was told it meant that you could go long periods of time without drinking. I like your definition too.
In D. J. Conway's book, butterfly's attributes are: Reincarnation, beauty, love. Transformation of the personality and life. Understanding wher eyou are in the cycle of your life and using it to the fullest. Divination concedrning future events that have a bearing on your cycle of life and rebirth.
JaneAnn Dow says that Amythests develop intuition and aid meditation. She says she uses it for people who are new to spirituality and are just opening up to new awareness. I carried one for years in early recovery.
I just realized I had them reversed. The ABCs of recovery.
majestyjo: My computer is acting up again so signing off and going to go and do a meditation and have a wee talk with God and ask for some patience and tolerance.

majestyjo: 'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything.' - source unknown but makes good sense to me

majestyjo: Time to call it a day, the sun can't make up it's mind as to whether it wants to shine or not.

BW: It feels good to feel good...been sick since last Saturday...Have "cabin fever"...too cold to go out today & would be kind a dumb on my part to go out in the cold when barely healed--so I'll wait till it is warmer and I'll be even gooder

majestyjo: Was busy today and spent a whole lot of my money and didn't even make it out of my building. Thanks to the door between my building and the mall next door and the telephone, I didn't have to go into the cold, but then I missed the sunshine.

majestyjo: Not sure what is going on, I have high speed internet yet my computer is slow and it takes me a long time to post on the sites. I don't know if it is Google or the traffic on the sites. When I am in pain, I don't have much patience to wait for a window.
