Animal Omens: The Butterfly

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Self-Help

The butterfly is a symbol of the soul in flight from the body after death, beautiful in its true nature, unhampered by its earthly form. The butterfly has also been seen as a shape-shifter, able to transform itself into something other than its present form as it goes from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly.

Butterfly can teach us about transformation. About change and how we can change in beauty and joy, for change doesn’t need to be a negative experience—there is beauty in change.

If Butterfly has flown into your life, ask yourself if you need to undergo a change of some sort. Maybe in your relationships with others, your living arrangements, or in your thinking? Whichever it might be, a change is at hand. Stay open for renewal and be prepared for this change to make itself known, for you are forewarned, and so forewarned you can be ready and willing to go where change leads.

Every change can be viewed as a growing, expanding, learning experience. All life is change; nothing remains the same. But Butterfly can help you with the transformation that is coming. Just look for the beauty that it holds, and embrace it willingly.
