You may not know it, but nature constantly guides you in a subtle way, and when you see butterflies, it is often a message or a metaphysical symbol.
Sometimes these butterflies can even be old souls or the soul of a deceased loved one.
So, if butterflies have crossed your path, discover the metaphysical meanings:
1. Change and growth.
Butterflies symbolize change and evolution.
At the beginning of its life, the butterfly is a caterpillar before turning into a chrysalis to finally become a butterfly. It perfectly symbolizes metamorphosis, and the metaphors surrounding change and growth are obvious.
We know we have the capacity to change and grow – to evolve to become the person we want to be rather than just the person we are now.
When you cross butterflies, consider this as a step towards growth and change and as a reminder to keep an eye on opportunities for improvement and progress toward your goals.
2. A lost loved one.
Butterflies would be a common way for missing loved ones to manifest themselves physically.
If you tend to cross butterflies while thinking about a missing loved one, it is possible that these butterflies are the manifestation of his soul. Often, he sends you a message full of love and support, to reassure you that there is beauty where he is and he constantly watches over you.
This is, even more, the case if there is only one butterfly that crosses your path or visits you from time to time. It may be a soul who visits you to remind you that it guides you daily.
3. Carpe Diem: live in the moment
When a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, it has only a short time to live. The butterfly can only live in the moment. When you cross a butterfly on your way, it can push you to enjoy the moment.
You may have been afraid of taking risks lately, preferring to choose easy options and stay in your comfort zone. You may think you’ve created a routine, but in reality, it can be a rut.
When you’re in a rut, enjoying the moment can help you get out of it. The Universe may have sent these butterflies to remind you that life is ephemeral and you have to enjoy it to the fullest.
4. Enjoy the beauty
Butterflies undeniably symbolize beauty. The world is full of beauty for those who take the time to look for it and see it.
Have you not had time to stop and enjoy life recently?
Maybe the butterflies that cross your path are doing their best so that you stop for a moment to smell the scent of roses.
