Travelers say that « One of the wonders of nature that is repeated every year happens in the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, in the state of Michoacán, Mexico. There, from October to April, millions of Monarch butterflies can be observed that, despite their small size, only 9 cm, migrate thousands of kilometers. Without GPS or any ultra-modern navigation system, the species is able to return to the same hibernation sites after several generations. Monarch butterflies repeat their journey every year, coming from North America. Their flight patterns are intuitive, inherited, and apparently based on a mix of circadian rhythms and the position of the sun in the sky. It is one of the few insects that manages to make transatlantic crossings. A few Monarch butterflies arrive in southwestern Britain and Spain in favorable wind years »… guided by their instincts .
This story of the Monarch butterflies that are carried away by their instinct to undertake their journey that will take them to warmer places where they can spend the winter seems to me a good example to encourage us to drop moorings, to leave the Port, to leave our area of comfort to reach destinations we dream of.
We all need, as Monarch butterflies do, to embark on a journey to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves. Relying on our intuition to direct us towards our dreams and make them come true and not wait to have everything under control. Because that is what life consists of, taking risks for what we dream and believe, for what we are passionate about and learn to trust.
Trust your instuition, in what makes your heart vibrate and excite your soul. Trust in the flight without fear of the result you may have, because even being negative you have already gained an experience, you learned to function in a new habitat and most importantly you prove to yourself that you can do everything.
And yes, it is very important to set goals, to establish where we want to go. Goals direct us, guide us, but we must not let them take total control of our life and prevent us from enjoying the present.
Therefore, when you make up your mind, when you start your trip, put your five senses and enjoy because only then can you feel when the wind blows in your favor.
So, listen to your instincts that will help you choose which path is the most appropriate and the one that takes you further!
