Motivation Mojo & My Butterfly…

Jan's Butterfly Bottle and Bottega 3 15 18 2

Motivation is funny and strange!  The above piece of art is an original of mine which began as a flower and became a butterfly.  In my work with money, the butterfly is always in my mind, body, heart and soul!  It is my mission, it is TRANSFORMATION!  It is all about the colors, the chakras, and my mojo.  Really, once I have tuned into The Universe aka God, as long as I stay out of my own way (thank you, Keith Jordan, for that wisdom many years ago), The Universe knows where we are going according to my chosen mission, and it works with me to keep moving ahead!  

Yes, it is motivation, but it is also mojo, the indescribable momentum within my soul, that keeps the path clear for the most part.  My motivation to attend a soft opening of the local, only one in Ohio, Bottle and Bottega, opened by my friend Vicki Prete and her spouse Scott in northern Ohio, was to support Vicki as I have never considered myself to be artistic in any way.  Creative, yes, artistic, NO!  But I went for my reason alone.  This had been a creative work of love for Vicki for months–I needed to be there to support her!  And, yes it sparked my butterfly.  

So, why is the butterfly a symbol of balance and inspiration.  If you have ever checked out my Pinterest boards, they are pretty much lately only butterfly pins; and butterflies are truly a work of art of Nature.  You do not see butterflies with abstract patterns–they are balanced and yet each is an individual of its own species.  They are an inspiration.  They are the perfect examples of TRANFORMATION.  They are powerful, but their lives are very short.  They came to do what they come to do and are gone!  No nonsense here!  Even Deepak Chopra has stated in a recent meditation that ” Motivation comes from Inspiration”.  And my famous mantra is the question “Is it fear or love?” questions motivation as a driving force in life…

So, why the butterfly, now?  

This piece of art, and it is, hangs outside of my Empower Excellence office all alone until I create another.  It is a reminder of how far I have come in this my sixth year of business, and it is the motivation of where I am now going.  It is exciting in and of itself, and it gives me chills to know that all the work I have done is only the beginning…
