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.

johnt3166: Thin skin is the answer for me. When I feel I need thick skin I realize I am trying to do the things God will do for me if I let him. When I take my EGO out of the equation, an amazing thing happens: I am already strong! God takes all the pressure off me!
