Why do I always see a butterfly?
You are probably wondering why you often see a butterfly flying around you. People around the world believe that butterfly brings a message to people.
According to Lafcadio Hearn, a butterfly was seen in Japan as the personification of a person’s soul; whether they be living, dying, or already dead. One Japanese superstition says that if a butterfly enters your guest room and perches behind the bamboo screen, the person whom you most love is coming to see you. Large numbers of butterflies are viewed as bad omens.
But what does butterfly really mean?
Butterflies are tiny creatures that often times take our breath away. They are mostly associated with fairies and all things magical and ethereal.
Despite their fragile beauty, they can do more than just pollinating flowers. They are said to be carriers of spiritual messages.
5 Cosmic Messages of Seeing A Butterfly
1. A reminder of our spiritual journey.
Most often, we use the analogy of a butterfly’s life cycle with our own spiritual journey. From an egg, it hatches into a caterpillar. After a few days, it enters into a cocoon and finally emerges as a beautiful butterfly.
Our spiritual transformation also follows the same stages. From an ordinary human being, we crawl our way as the caterpillar does. After being tired of much crawling, we come to believe that we can do more than just crawl.
We create our own cocoon by journeying inward, meditating, praying, reading, searching, and studying spiritual truths.
After months, years or even decades of staying inside our cocoons, eventually we spread our wings and fly when we are ready.
Like a butterfly, we emerge as new and beautiful creatures shining with our true self.
2. A power animal message.
The Native Americans and Shamanic cultures revered the power animals. These power animals teach us by their specific qualities and strengths.
The qualities of a butterfly signify joy, freedom, creativity, and change. And its transformative powers enlighten us about shapeshifting or metamorphosis and soul evolution.
Seeing a butterfly in a dream or in waking life means you are receiving a power animal message.
It’s the best time to stop for a moment and evaluate what’s going on with your life. There might be something in your life that needs to be transformed.
Butterflies are also great at reminding you to enjoy freedom and creativity.
3. A reminder to move on with your transformation.
Seeing a butterfly might be a reminder that you are ready to move on with your transformation.
It’s a sign that you are on the right path of your transformational journey and that you are spiritually ready to move one with your transformation.
When you see butterflies in groups, their message is more prominent and urgent.
4. A message from the spiritual world.
The presence of a butterfly is not to be ignored since it also conveys spiritual messages.
Since angels rarely appear to humans, the spirit world might use butterflies to communicate their messages to humans more frequently.
When a butterfly instantaneously appears before you, your guardian angel or spirit guide might be sending you a message.
This might be a good time to slow down and evaluate what’s going on around you and in your life at the moment.
5. The essence of a loved one’s soul or sign of resurrection.
Some people claim of seeing a butterfly right after the passing away of a loved one.
Hence, butterflies are considered as the essence of the deceased’s soul.
But, there are also others who say that butterflies are a symbol of resurrection.
It might signify overcoming health problems, psychological barriers or transcending old limiting believes and behaviors that kept you down from shining with your true light.
The spiritual message of a butterfly largely depends on your situation.
Whatever is the case, every time you see a butterfly take heed and be aware. The message it brings might be of great importance in your life.
