I have been so down on my luck and the depression is getting overwhelming. I have a lot going on with my family. I have been praying and asking the angels for signs.
The other day I was in my yard and saw a beautiful butterfly. It had a piece torn from its wing but it was doing ok. It landed on my hand and then went on its way. A couple days later, I saw what looked like the same butterfly. When I was walking up the sidewalk to go to work in a totally different location from my house, same color, same ripped wing it was also doing just fine fluttering around the flowers.
What could this mean?
What a wonderful gift – to have a butterfly land on your hand. Often people don’t begin to notice the gentle signs. The Angels had this sign make you stop and take notice.
Butterflies have a special meaning of transformation. They have such an miraculous evolving process: egg, larva, cocoon and, finally, a butterfly. Through the process of growing and changing, the butterfly becomes a beautiful flying creature. Some of the process of the transformation is not always easy. Did you know if someone were to help the butterfly by opening the cocoon, it would die? A butterfly must do it all on its own.
It sounds like you are going through a similar transformation. Be strong, and know that you must do it for yourself. You may be in your cocoon right now, but know that you are on your way to having the flying wings of your own.
