Locked into the cocoon, the caterpillar could not add or change anything about the physical aspects of its body... so it must have been how those physical aspects are organized... something beyond the visible... something you could call "spiritual".
I can teach you to speak butterfly, so you can fly like a butterfly.
The secret between being a caterpillar and a butterfly is in the speaking.
The saying so many people are coming to my site for is: you cannot talk butterfly language to caterpillars.
Now, the truth is: you cannot. The caterpillars out there won't hear it. Won't respond to it.
But you can talk butterfly language to yourself... and whenever you do, you do become a butterfly.See footnote 1
You are a caterpillar, your life is a caterpillar life. And you know it, even if you pretend. And you do... I can see it from your Starting Point Measurements.
If I gave you my butterfly life, you would turn it into a caterpillar life within a week: guaranteed.
And if you gave me your life, however horrible it seems to you, poverty, bankruptcy, disease, obesity, busy mind, hopeless boring work, wife leaving you for a scruffy Caribbean... I would turn it into a butterfly life within a week. Guaranteed.
Why? because you keep speaking caterpillar language, and I keep speaking butterfly language. And the language you speak to yourself determines the kind of life you live.
This phenomenon explains why instant millionaires, millionaires who inherit or win their millions, promptly lose it.
The difference is the language. The language they speak.
The valid question is: can butterfly language be taught? I have seen little signs of it over the years, but when I tried to teach it, I ran into difficulties...
...until one day I discovered that speaking butterfly language and teaching it is not the same.
I have been unconsciously competent... and never had to go through learning the language: I was born with it. It is a group of the capacities I inherited from my father... spiritual capacities that HIS efforts opened up... in an epigenetic shift.
In Landmark Education I observed the way they teach it... and tried to teach what I learned there... and my results were similar to what Landmark Education got: poor or nothing.
Once the person left the Landmark Education class, nothing much is left from the power they experienced in the class.See footnote 2
It was frustrating to me as a coach, to say the least. Each coaching session I started out with excitement, ended up with disappointment.
I had given up on ever finding the solution, when accidentally I stumbled on the possible mistake Landmark Education has taught me... and taught millions of other people.
A few of those Landmark people spoke fluent butterfly, probably inherited, or learned somewhere else. They exuded power, they made things happen.
Those people became the face of Landmark Education... and the millions of people, who never learned butterfly language became... remained caterpillars with caterpillar lives, caterpillar vibrational measurement.
After I share what was the error of Landmark Education, some of you will be able to start speaking butterfly... you don't have to be taught. If you do, please contact me... I'd like to brainstorm with you.
If you are an Esther Hicks fan, it may be easier for you too... but not necessarily enough.
Because a language is more than just some principles and rules: you need to learn the expressions, the vocabulary, the way I learned the six languages I have learned to speak. The rules, the sentence structure, the intonation, the words, the idioms...
And, this is important and most of you will ignore it! you also need to talk to someone who can tell if you are speaking caterpillar or butterfly. Who can catch where you misunderstand, where you need strengthening. Who can see whether you are pretending or not.
But ultimately your life will show you if you learned it correctly, if you use it correctly, not other people, but your life, your life experience, your life results.
Butterfly language is the language of the "god-like" human, Human Being. Human Being who creates with their WORD... in all caps.
Word is different from words... I bet you have noticed that words leave you the same... but WORD alters you.
I have never done this course, so it will probably take longer than it would if this were my third or fourth time teaching people to speak butterfly. But it will be done. Eventually. So I can't tell you how many sessions it will take. Many, I guess.
I have decided to take a group of people and teach them butterfly... Whatever it takes.
Obviously, I believe that humans are equipped with what it takes to change their language. It is part of the human DNA. I believe that you can learn, and I believe that I can teach you.
I am sure that by the end of the course, some of the students will be able to train themselves to teach the course.
What they teach: "What makes you who you are in the present is not the past, but rather the future you are living into"
This is 100% true, but...
The nature of the human condition is that you, the person who wants to invent a future is rooted in the past...
Unless you have the power to change the past, you don't have the power to invent a new future, a new future that lasts longer than the bombastic words you utter.
OK, if you haven't done the Landmark Forum, this probably makes no sense to you.
It is probably for the better: Landmark graduates are an arrogant bunch who think they "got it"... but in all of my years, 26 years of participation in different positions, from participant to leadership, I met maybe 26 people, one each year, who "got it"... although none of them could hold onto it long enough for it to matter. To matter for their lives.
Which means, to me, that they didn't learn to speak butterfly, they learned to say some magical things... or they could only speak butterfly in a butterfly environment.
You also need to increase your butterfly vocabulary, so you can say more and more complex sentences that take you, the butterfly on wings, higher and higher, and wider and wider.
Here is how I envision this butterfly language course: broken up to levels

As usual, experimental courses are developed in lockstep with the sessions that are delivered, so they address the issues that come up, instead of being my good idea, like most courses.
Stay in touch... if you are interested. I'll announce in a blog post when you can sign up to the Introductory course.
