There can be no doubt some animals possess a particular connection to the Good People.

Creatures familiar to us who communicate with the Good People, or who, from time to time, the Good People might appear to us in their form.

The Crow.

The Hare.

Perhaps too, the Fox, Cat and Dog: all creatures with great presence, strong bearing.

But what of other creatures who fly under the radar?

Who specialise in silence and stealth?

Surely, they are just as useful to the Good People?

Indeed they are!

And this week we take a very close look at just such a creature: the Butterfly.

The connection between Butterflies and the Good People is long established.

They are known to bear messages and warnings to humans of danger and death, but did you know they also bring messages of hope and encouragement?

From tales of our Ancestors and one very modern tale, we come to understand the delicate relationship between the Good People and the glorious creatures we call Butterflies.
