Butterflies Bring Special Messages

Hi Karen,

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?

~ Kelly


Dear Kelly,

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.

~ Karen

    Hi Karen,

    Few weeks back a butterfly got into my room and stayed one week and then it left. Is there any meaning of it?

    • Dear Ismat,

      Butterflies are a wonderful sign. They are the symbol of transformation. I love when I receive those messages … it means the caterpillar has come out of the cocoon and is ready to spread his wings and fly! This usually occurs after a long period of difficulty and learning.

      Congratulations!
      Karen

    Last weekend we went camping with several other family members and friends. We were the first to arrive and set up. A butterfly orange and brown came up to Chad and I and landed on each of us watching us for long periods of time. The whole weekend several other butterflies hung around at one time there were like 8 all flying in a cluster under and around our picnic table. Never once did one land on any of us. On the last evening of our camping we were the last to tear down and leave. We were almost done and decided to sit down and have a drink before we finished. Then a single orange and brown butterfly appeared and began landing on us again for long periods. My dear Father passed away suddenly in January and I have had a difficult time with this. Chad and I believe it was him watching us and sending a butterfly to tell us he was ok.

    • Dear Margie,
      What a beautiful story. Yes, your father is doing great. Life on the otherside is so much better than here. It is great to receive confirmation that they are still around us.

      The father to my children died in a car accident the day after Christmas this last year. Everyday i see a yellow butterfly. on my patio at my work at my sons football games even when my daughter was going to home coming. This the crazy part — we re did my daughters room about 2 months ago (we have lived in the house for 5 years) when i was cleaning the walls i noticed that there were butterflies underneath the paint . I had never seen them until that day. then about a week later we came home and a butterfly was in our house. I believe that it is him and he is watching us from above.

    iv been very depressed for the past two months now.today i had written a letter to my guardian angel and then i burnt it and blew the ashes outside.i asked my angel for a sign in the form of a feather about whether i should restore ties with an old friend..when i opened the window of my room a butterfly or a moth kind of a creature flew into my room and stayed there until i drove it outside into the air because my fan was in full swing.what could it mean?is it a sign?

  • becky

    Hi about four months ago my husband’s grandfather passed away & about 3 weeks ago there has been a butterfly that is always around him this past weekend was Father’s Day we were at the grave site & the same color of butterfly landed on him & was just flying around the grave site returning to land on him. Could this be him watching over my husband he also dreams of him often more then any of the other family members they were really really close. Could this mean something?

    • Hi Becky,
      Butterflies are a common symbol used by spirit. Yes. I would also like to say, that spirit talks to us in our sleep. The fact that your husband remembers a lot of visits would indicate that he has an increased intuition. A butterfly has another meaning as well. I means transformation is coming. Just like the butterfly, the person receiving this message will have a new beginning. It is a very exciting time. Kudos to you for recognizing the importance.
      Many blessings to you ~ Karen

    Thank You Karen,for your reply!

  • joan

    I woke up one morning with an old Elton John song in my head that says, “Your a butterfly, and butterflies are free to fly, fly away, high away, bye bye.” Later that day, a huge beautiful butterfly was on the sidewalk, right in my path.

    My sons and I are victims of a very serious crime, and I asked my angel everyday when justice will be served, is the butterfly a sign it will be soon?

    • Dear Joan,
      The butterfly is one of the most magical symbols in spirituality. The caterpillar goes into a cocoon and comes out a completely different being … an oh so beautiful creature. I believe you are in that process. Bad things happen to very good people, but how you choose to heal from it makes all the difference in the world. The true justice would be that you and your sons could find peace from this situation, and live happy healthy lives. Focus on the positive and have gratitude for what you do have. Ask the Angels to surround you with love, protection and peace. This is the true transformation message the Angels are bringing to you.

        I have two black butterflies in my bedroom which have been there for the last two nights. They were at either end of the room for the first night and both were on the roof above my pillow last night. One flew around the room when I was getting changed for work. I left the windows open on both days when I left for work so they could leave but they stayed. There was also one in my spare room the first night but that has now gone. One has gone from my bedroom today. What does this mean?

  • Tina morrow

    The other day my 7 year dog had had to be taken to u.t. animal hospital due to back problems. The vet there told me had 50/5o chance to walk again and it didn’t look good.I was best to put him down. I signed the papers and they started Iv . As I was telling my dog goodbye, something came over me I just couldn’t do it. Dr came back in and I said no I can’t do this, I want you to do surgery. When I was leaving the hospital had my two windows down in the front. Two butterflies came in my car, it was almost like a black cloud had been lifted. They stayed for a couple minutes and then both went out my window on my side. What does this mean?

    • Tina,
      Butterflies symbolize transformation. A caterpillar is a land locked creature who spends most of its time consuming and growing. It then goes into a cocoon and changes occur. When the butterfly is ready, it breaks free and is ready to fly. There is no forcing, but only allowing in this process. If someone were to attempt to help the butterfly come out of its cocoon, it would die. It needs to do it on its own. It is beautiful and magical.

      May you find the true meaning in this message. Many blessings to you and your dear friend ~ Karen

        Karen , i found a little white butterfly in the bathroom after having a shower today sitting on the floor near the window, i chased it around the room and it sat on my finger and it didnt want to leave my finger, but i let it fly away from the window but it didnt want to fly off my finger what does it mean . ive been going through major health and legal issues for 2 years that dont want to go away can this be a good sign? ~ Mick

  • I am so glad to have found this web site as
    I have a fear of brown butterflies.
    My husband and I have had 5 years
    Of supporting and losing ill parents. Jan 2011
    I had a big operation as did my dear friend .
    June 2011 my husband took
    Me away to recuperate before going back to work
    We travelled to london To meet my best
    friend as i hadnt seen her since our
    operations then flew out on holiday.
    On the last day of hols a butterfly
    landed on my hand a stayed there a long time
    staring into to my face. Other people’s
    Reaction to this made me worried I shook it
    Off my hand and I told my husband some
    news was coming our Way and that evening
    I was told that my best Friend had died suddenly .
    October 2011 I noticed a butterfly on the
    Floor outside my outhouse the next day another
    Joined it I tried to get them to fly away but they
    Wouldn’t by the end of the week both had died
    Soon after my father in law died.
    I have sold my business This year and this
    has brought on a lot of stress Not the happiness
    as expected . Butterflies are
    Around me yet again in my house I’m worried
    Another death is around the corner .
    Please can u make sense of all of this.

    • Dear Sandie,

      Often the spirit world communicates with us using signs. They can come in the 3D world or it can be an imagine in our mind. These are called symbols. These symbols are an easy way for spirit to communicate with us. As you build your relationship with them, the library of symbols increases. It is really fun to develop.

      You have developed one symbol that works with your Guides and Angels. For some reason, it has been necessary for you to know ahead of time that someone is going to pass over. Does it help in your grieving process? I know that when I was told I was going to loose someone I loved, I began to prepare emotionally for a loss. You can never prepare fully … but it definitely helped me. It also helped me know that it was destined. There was nothing I could do or say … and spirit was telling me they were there comforting me.

      I can understand these are not the messages you would like to hear from spirit. Learning that you were going to win the lottery would be so much nicer. The truth is, you developed this skill for a reason. Nothing is by accident. I would suggest working on a few more symbols so the messages can come on a more regular basis. Instead of fearing your gifts, learn how to use them for the benefit of yourself but also others. We often fear what we don’t understand. Learn to understand, and the fear will turn into love.

      A life with guidance from spirit is wonderful. Why they had to reach out to you to let you know of people passing? I am not sure, but they absolutely got your attention. I would think they are trying in lots of different ways, but you aren’t paying attention.

      ~ Karen

  • Laura

    Hi, we had a red admiral butterfly on our bedroom wall. For 3 days it didn’t move, on monday it seemed like it was trying to get out the bedroom window, so we helped it on its way, last night it was back in the house at the stop of the stairs, does this have a meaning?

    Many thanks

    Laura

    • Butterflies are a wonderful message of transformation.

      “This is a lovely question because the answer is quite lovely.

      According to Native Mythology, the butterfly represents the four stages of development.

      First – the egg
      Second – the larva
      Third – the chrysalis
      Forth – the butterfly.

      If you’ve got butterflies entering your life, perhaps you should look at your current situation and determine what stage you are at or what stage a particular issue is either in or moving through. That will help you decide what your next, most effective steps should be.

      The fact that the butterflies in question are black and yellow is also significant. Yellow represents wisdom and black creativity. Look to your current situation from those points of view and you should be able to determine what needs your creative, wise attention.”

    I had a lovely butterfly visit for 2 days. He was on my deck and it started geting chilly so I put it in a jar with a leafs and drops of water for the night inside. He was content and didnt flutter much in the jar but was nice and cosy with air holes on top.

    In the morning, I opened the jar to let it free got on my balcony and he fluttered out but stayed on my deck for another night and finally left that evening without saying goodbye. I believe it v=brought me a message as I had been down and out and as soon as I put the butterfly in a warm place for the night, a marvelous sermon was on tv which I listened to and I got a wonderful message.

  • Karen Edgar

    Hello I lost my mum to cancer in 2009 and since then have experienced a difficult time trying to cope with the loss as we were really close. I moved house in September (3rd) this year (separately from my partner).. and the first day I got the keys a butterfly flew towards me in the bedroom (a red admiral).. It is now 16th November and the little butterfly still flies around, normally to the bedroom light and back to the window ledge or skirting. Its a stunning butterfly and I cant believe it has lasted so long. Karen E.

  • lala

    hi.. just now, a brown butterfly with d shade of ashes white and small holes came inside my house. what does it mean? i;m scared.. :( i don’t know what to think about it.. is it a badluck or accident might be happen? but i want to assume that this might be a good news or something that not bad..please response. thanks..

    • Lala,

      Have NO FEAR … messages from spirit come from a place of love. Right now, in your life there are things that are going on that you are uncertain of. A butterfly means transformation … changing from a caterpillar into a beautiful winged creature. This is you … and just like the caterpillar, you don’t know what the outcome is going to be. Trust that these changes are a miracle and a gift … brown is a grounded color … when means stay breathing … relax …. step outside and sit under a tree … breathe … relax … and let love flow.

      Many blessings to you ~ Karen

  • lala

    thanks to your response.. yeah. i’m a bit stressed that time so, thats why i thought of it like a negative message came from d brown butterfly.. thanks for this karen.. many blessings to you also..

    After a big night out, i went home and smoked a ciggarette in my balcony door as usual every ordinary night. Suddenly a black butterfly flew in moving rapidly fast, then i had to open my door completely for it to fly outside. What does it mean?? why would a butterfly fly in on such a small gap on my balcony door?

    • Both the color black and a butterfly are signs of transformation. When the spirit world reaches out to you to let you know what is coming, they want to reassure you that this is for your highest good. Relax, let them take the reins … and hold on. In the end, you life will be so much happier for it. ~ Karen

  • stilley

    I live in an apartment complex and happened to be sitting out front when I noticed something in my neighbors arcadia door. It was a butterfly trapped in between the glass door and the screen. I rushed over to let it out and opened the screen for it fly away. It wouldn’t fly away… So I stuck my hand inside hoping maybe it would get spooked and flee but instead it landed on my hand. I LOVE BUTTERFLIES but have never had one land on me. Not only did it land on me it hung out on my hand for about 5 minutes. I don’t know if this is merely my hope or what but I ended up having a miscarriage in October of 2012. It was horrible but I know there’s a reason for everything… I know I’ll have a guardian angel watching over me for the remainder of my existence. My husband and I have been trying since with no success. After the butterfly landed on me, I felt something indescribable in my heart, like all of our trial and error has finally paid off. Is it possibly a sign I have been graced with a child?

    • Butterflies are the sign of transformation. Beautiful transformations are happening for you. They are not showing me what is about to unfold, just know miracles happen all the time. Sometimes they come with a helping hand like yours. Many blessings ~ Karen

  • Bella2705

    Hi, for the past 3 days i have had 30-40 butterflies around me at any given moment… they wait for me, when i move they move when im at home inside they wait til i come out and swarm me like nothing ive ever seen before… what does this mean?

    • How wonderful … truly a strong, loving message. Butterflies mean transformation – the energy of the amount of butterflies feels like a celebration. Butterflies mean transformation … so you have or will be going through changes, and it is reason to celebrate! ~ Karen

  • Bella2705

  • Jess

    It’s strange how I came across this website. I’ve been torn between two guys lately, one who is my best friend but who I feel little attraction toward, the other a man I met in a creative writing class who I later developed strong feelings for. I’ve been seeing both of their names frequently, at least once per day (too much so for it be a coincidence), but one name more than the other. This week in particular I’ve seen one name repeatedly engraved in sidewalks (4 times total) often in conjunction with the number ’22’. Today, I saw this same name again on the sidewalk again before encountering a brown and orange butterfly resting in front of me maybe half an hour later. What do these signs mean? I’m confused.

    Oh, and just to clarify the name that keeps repeating the most is the man’s from my creative writing classes.

  • Brooke

    dear karen, today i was sitting out on my portche. All of a sudden a orange and brown butterfly landed on my back!then my dad told me about these kittens we have[p.s. doyou know any one who wants them?]then i got up, and it landed on my mommow.it stayded there while she got up, and went in the house.it stayed in the house until we put it back outside,because my cat was trying to eat it.BAD POOKY!!!!!!!!!

  • Celestine Evelyn

    For the past two days every morning i keep seeing a lot of yellow butterflies in my drive away i know i am having some health and money troubles i pray to the father everyday for help i was wondering what sign was the butterflies

  • Jason

    I was on the way to my husbands massage clinic with the windows rolled up and the ac on. We got there we went in the clinic and maybe 10 minutes later he asked me to get something out the car for him. I went to the car unlocked the door and opened the back seat door. There I seen what appeared to be a beautiful butterfly opening and closing its wings. it was orange and black it looked like a monarch butterfly but its patterns were different more beautiful it stood there for like 10 seconds and flew out the back seat underneath the parked car next to us. I immediately looked underneath the car but it vanished out of thin air. Please what does this symbolize?

  • Em

    I am going through a separation with my husband and having a very difficult time with it; very depressed and not knowing how to deal with it. Today, I saw a beautiful colorful butterfly fly by. Does it mean anything? I have also come across pennies these past few weeks. Any relation?

    • Butterflies are symbolic of transformation and emerging. It is a very good sign for you. Coins are the Angels letting you know they are there watching over you. Remember to call on them to help you with all of our life. Even the small things. ~ Karen

  • Louise

    A butterflies entered my house and I opened the window to let it out. The next morning it was on top of the stair with a torn wing. The cat had got it. I picked it up and placed it outside on the window seal. A day later the same butterflies was on the bathroom carpet, but the wing was repaired. I have had a terrible year, is this a sign from my angel.is this good news or bad news?

    • How could you possibly think this is bad news? If you were the butterfly, I would see that you went through a very hard time and are now healing. It is wonderful. ~ Karen

  • rebecca

    i recently lost my son of 20week s,i been feeling very down at work one day when i walked into someones garden and about twenty white butterflies flew out at me,a smile came to my face ,what does this mean

  • Claire

    Yesterday a red admiral (I think!) flew into my house through the back door through the kitchen and into the living room up to the window. I let it out the window as it was flapping about. Today, same thing happened but I left it to see what it did and eventually it went up to the kitchen window where I let it out. I live in Scotland and don’t often see butterflies much so it kind of stood out!
    The strange thing was my wee dog looked at it but never attempted to chase it! (unusual)
    Does this mean anything?
    We recently went to a charity spirit evening and our son (lost through miscarriage 13 years ago) came through in a big way and he constantly gives me signs he is around.

    Thanks

  • Claire

    In addition to the above post, my husband just informed me that he found a feather in his minibus today (white with a little bit of black on it) while he was sweeping it out (he was 30 miles from home at this point). Is this just a coincidence? I have my dad, grandad and a couple of others in spirit as well but my boy does stuff at least twice a week to show us he’s there.

    Thanks

  • Kinley

    Since about June, I’ve been seeing yellow/black swallowtail butterflies everywhere I go. I only see them for a second, because they quickly fly out of my view. I just find it odd that I happen to look up in time to keep seeing them. This has happened too many times to be a coincidence, and I’d like to know whether it has something to do with religious symbolism or something else. Also if it is good or bad.

  • lucinda

    Hi there I was just wondering a black and red butterfly flew in my patio doors the other day and came right through my livingroom and flew out my front window is there a meaning to the butterfly doing this? Help please!!!! :)

  • Dolores

    About three weeks ago I had a dream that a white and purple butterfly landed on me. Today as I got out of my car a HUGE brown and purple butterfly actually landed on my foot and sat there. What could this possibly mean??? Is it bad luck???

  • donna-maree

    My comment is awaiting moderation…? How do I modify?

  • I had a butterfly land on the top of my head while I was sunbathing, I was listening to some beautiful hymns on my Ipod. Prior to that I had been praying.(Life has been difficult and my daughter is unwell) I raised my hand to feel what was there and felt it wings. It flew off straight ahead and I could only see that it seemed to be dark (brown or black) with some yellow on it. What does this mean? I do believe in Angels and often see white feathers.

  • Sharon

    My niece lost twins at just six weeks into the pregnancy a few days ago and is staying with me to recover. Just after she got here a pretty. Butterfly flew into the bedroom, and each day to today I open different windows around the house in the morning and without fail in comes the butterfly. Her grandad and my dad passed some years ago who we both adored, could it be his spirit or some other sign, never had a butterfly in the house before. My niece also had a photo and video taken recently which showed a clear orb of light, moving around her in the video. Is this another sign. Thank you, sharon

  • Megan

    I had been thinking about my brother a lot lately who had passed away from cancer in 2009 and also my aunt who passed away the following year. I am starting med school and my first day is on Monday. My mom and I decided to go to the zoo today since we were both off for the holiday. We went into the Butterfly House, my favorite place by the way – and a beautiful Blue Morpho flew around me and landed right on my leg. It statyed for about 10 seconds and I was also just so lucky to get a picture of it with it’s blue wings out on me. I cannot stop looking at the picture. It was my moment of glory. The zookeeper did not beleive me at first, she said people sit in there all day with their expensive cameras and never can get a picture, and I even had it land on me as well. It was crazy to me because I have never had one land on me it was so cool. I know that there are TONS of them in there and maybe it was just luck, but it happened right when i walked in :) My aunt was a phlebotomist in a hospital and that is what I am going to study. I beleive it was her or my brothers spirt wishing me good luck and telling me they are watching over me! – Also the morning my brother had passed away, which was at our home…5 minutes later I walked onto the porch for some fresh air and one of those white butterflys were sitting on my cell phone. Too weird. I always see them in my yard flying beside me. My guardian angel? Or just a butterfly?

    • You know the meaning behind these butterflies. You can feel it in your heart. Congratulations for starting school, and the spirit world is sending their love. Know you are being watched over. You have wonderful things in store for you. ~ Karen

  • Megan

    … We went into the Butterfly House on our way out and yet again another one landed on my shirt but not a Blue Morpho this time. He he! ;) And also on my head at the same time but the one on my head flew right away.

    I asked the angels for a sign to see a butterfly if something was going to happen, I keep seeing them everywhere all the time now. Is that a yes from them or is it a symbol of transformation?

    A Red Admiral butterfly was fluttering desperately on the outside of my daughters kitchen window where I was staying, I gently lifted the butterfly & brought it in, it settled on the kitchen lampshade, in the morning it was flying around at the front door, I let it out and would you believe a Red Admiral butterfly returned about 3 hrs later hovering around the back door & windows. I lost my Mum 3 months ago, what does this mean please.

    • Red is the color of family, how your were raised and of course, love. This message is of love but also support for changes that are happening within you and your beliefs instilled in you from your family. What a wonderful blessing to receive. ~ Karen

    Last month my sister had an operation on her colon to remove an infusion.. Cancer was found in this and in some lymhnoids. At the same time our My father’s(who has passed over) sister, was sitting on her deck when a Purple butterfly was hovering around her. It eventually fluttered down landed in her cup tea fluttered up to her eye level for few seconds and then kept fluttering around her. My Aunty was not aware that my sister loves Butterflies and the colour purple, but did feel the butterfly was some how connected to my Dad her Brother. We have always been very close. My sister started her chemo treatment last week and the colour purple appeared in many places in our path. The day she started the treatment she looked up at the wall in the Hospital ward across from where she was sitting and there was a Purple butterfly (imitation) stuck on the Wall. She also received a card from our brother with purple butterflies on it….are these Purple butterflies symbolic?????

  • TAMMYGRAHAM

    i have had visits from 2 different dragonflies this October.both flew into the house at night. The first was blue and the next was reddish/brown. And today a white butterfly was in our house. I opened the window to let it fly out.. Ive read the omens for both . My fiance’ broke up with me last August and I have been praying to God and my guardian angel and spirit guide to show me signs to show me if it was the Lord’s will to bring us back together again or if I should just let go. I asked my spirit guide to speak to me in my dream the other nite to and tell me the message I needed to know. Sure enough i vivdly dreamed of my fiance and he flew back to me. I asked my spirit guide last nite to show me a sign today to assure me that my dream was a clear message from them to hold on wait for my fiance to come around. And then that white butterfly flew into my house this morning. I do believe in my heart and soul that my fiance’ and i are meant to be… but I guess maybe we needed to break up to realize and change a bad pattern we were both gettin sucked into. He is the love of my life. I really want to hope and trust that he will comeback home to me.

    I was in my yard this morning – I saw 2 beautiful small lavender butterflies slowly flying past me and just fluttering around together in their passage. What does this mean? I have been going on a very emotional rollercoaster with a special person in my life – he is facing a lot of issues from the past and he seems to take out his irritations on me (even though we are in different continents and other side of the world. Is this symbolic of something?

    Good Day.

    Spring has just sprung so the birds are here!! Lately after spiritually growing i am alert to butterflies and birds etc..
    This very moment sitting outside my window was a beautiful Cape Bunting. Singing away until i registered its here to bring me a message.. I questioned am i right and ofcourse surely there appeared a creamish/yellow butterfly dancing away. Yes the sun is bright today and all is well. I am however looking for work as is my hubby and i logged onto to google to see what the spiritual message might be ….true as daylight …they both dissapeared. So i guess the immediate feeling was….”dont worry…things are getting better. Dancing and singing is a celebration so looks like celebrations are underway.” i interpret this as the message but am open to any others u might feel. Could you please share yours with me. And suddenly …its all quiet by the time i finishes this message..

    Hi, last night I met with my cousin to write our family Christmas cards. We have done this for 5 years since we both lost our business/ jobs, which was a very traumatic time for us. We have both managed to work again but both of us are in a situations (work wise) that we are struggling with and could go either way for us. Whilst we were writing our cards, a red admiral butterfly, started flying around our heads, it kept landing on either side of the wall behind each of us, then flying around our heads. During this we heard banging, that lasted about 60 seconds. Once we finished writing our cards, the butterfly disappeared, then 5 mins later it came back and landed on the wall and stayed their all evening until my cousin went home and I went to bed! Do you think there is a sign here or we were just lucky to see a butterfly in the winter – confused x

    • It is absolutely a wonderful sign. I feel this is a message from the spirit world, you ancestors too. Red, is their color and they are sending love, support and guidance to you both. Butterflies represent transformation too. So changes will be coming. You will feel freedom, released. A new perspective can change your entire world. ~ Karen

  • Marcie

    I was in my backyard with a friend doing yard work talking about life, when a butterfly flew in between us and landed near me. Was that a sign from my dad who has passed?

  • Saw a red butterfly inside my house. What does this mean?

  • Ellie

    Whenever my son and I go out into the yard there seems to be a sudden appearance of butterflies. White and orange and brown ones. They always fly around my son and I
    What does this mean? Please. Thank you lnl

  • Kirsty

    The past 10 years have just been dreadful it seems to go fro bad to worse. I have always loved angels and my home is full of them. A few weeks ago I had a butterfly land on my leg I sat and watched it’s graceful beauty it moved up onto the arm of the chair, and I just sat still and spoke to it quietly, it the proceeded to rest on my arm for around five minutes, as I talked and told it how beautiful it was and how blessed I felt it should allow me to indulge in it’s space. We were abruptly interrupted but it stayed near by for awhile. While I was admiring is grace and beauty I was wondering why it felt so heavy. But I did feel blessed for those few precious moments.

    • Life is filled with moments. How wonderful the Angels came to show you how precious each moment is when you stop to see them. Enjoy your moments and they will fill your life with happiness. ~ Karen

  • Laureen

  • Ariana F.

    Hello Karen,
    A ladybug landed on me yesterday and i wasn’t sure what it meant,can u help me figure it out?
    _Ariana

    • Hi Ariana,
      The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. Worries begin to dissipate. New happiness comes about. Ladybug also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace. In the due course of time, our wishes will all come true.

      Alternatively she could be signaling that you can leave your worries behind and that new happiness is on its way. Ladybug signals you to to not be scared to live your own truth. Protect your truth and know that it is yours to honor.

      ~ Karen

    Hi Karen
    Recently for the last few weeks I have been seeing the same butterfly almost everyday. It is a large black and white butterfly and I see it almost every time I go out into my back yard. It flutters around me for awhile and then leaves. I think it took me awhile to notice it, but when I did I felt strongly it was here to reassure me as I have been worried about a lot of things for quite some time. Also, my husband recently found a dead butterfly on his desk in his office at work, he was amazed. Am I right in thinking it is our Angels reassuring us everything will be alright and changes are about to happen? I hope my husband seeing a dead butterfly doesn’t mean anything negative.

    • Angels don’t bring negative messages. The Angels know how to get them seen … this is how your husband needed to receive his. Perhaps he is not in the present moment while he is at work :) ~ Karen

  • Claudia

    Karen, a butterfly has been watching me from the other side the window glass for almost 3 hours. I don’t know if this is a good or bad sign. It’s pretty big (4inches) and black with yellow in the center of its wings. Should I worry?

    • Claudia,
      Never worry when you receive a message from the Angels. They are letting you know everything is going to be okay, and NOT to worry. They have things under control. ~ Karen

  • Crys

    I’ve been struggling with a career path life decision and I’m not sure which one to choose. As I’m talking about it on the phone a huge yellow butterfly flies directly toward me. I’m hoping that this is a good sign that the decision I’m thinking about doing is the right one since I never see butterflies like this one.

  • fiona

    I saw a purple butterfly outside on window ledge and it sat there almost looking at me

  • mary

    Recently I discovered some jewellery belonging to my late mum missing and I suspected a family member had stolen it. Of course, she denied. Strangely, a white butterfly then appeared on and off for a few days in and outside the house.
    What does it mean? Is it the spirit of my mum / angel that I was wrong in accusing this family member, or is there some other ‘message’?

  • hayley

    I was sitting in my dining room with the window only slightly open when i noticed something falling it was a white/cream butterfly which had died! Poor Lil thing! Was i right to take this as a bad sign? X

  • I KEEP SEEING A YELLOW AND BLACK BUTTERFLY …WHEN I’M ALONE OUTSIDE IT STAYS WITH ME BUT AS SOON AS MY SON CAME OUT IT FLEW AWAY WHEN MY SOON LEFT AND WENT BACK INSIDE THE BUTTERFLY CAME BACK TO ME /ANY MEANING OF WHY THIS HAPPENING…….

    • Haridas

      hi karen :)
      A black with brown line huge butterfly flew around house hall & aroung us late night and suddenly hit on fan and broke one side of wing and straight landed in prayers room… it cant fly but it crawling around faster.
      Is that showing any bad message ?

      • Butterflies are a wonderful message. Have no concerns about your messenger, he has lived to fulfill this duty. He got you to notice him, and receive the sign. He is a little blessing. ~ Karen

    Good day…i am a teacher…as iwas teaching….there was a mariposa butterfly below my chalk board ..i was nearly stepped on it due to its color brown….when my time finished and going out of the classroom..the butterfly flew away…..

  • Luz

    I have alot of those butterflies in a room but they are like the ones that come out from light. What does that mean? Ive been killing a few cuz they are scary and they dont leave us alone.

  • Jeff

    I am not one to point out everything I see. However, Saturday I was out in my yard and a beautiful butterfly flew by me only about 4 feet away, then seconds later a second one following the same path. thought it to be strange. but then just about 10 minutes ago I saw one at my work almost in the same path 4 feet from me flying past my right side. I feel I am pretty in tune with the universe and I know I have my spirit guide/angel around me but does this mean something is coming for the better?

  • veronica

    I was sitting on my porch this morning drinking my coffee when all of a sudden a white butterfly lands on my arm and flys off but when I turn to put my cup on the window cill there lays the butterfly looking so peaceful. What could this mean? See I had a set of twins last year but one of my twins passed on Nov 3 and her 1st birthday is on July 16.

  • Kristi

    My husband passed away suddenly 8 years ago. Recently, after spending the day with his family, I stopped at his grave with our two children. While I was there a butterfly kept flying around me. I didn’t think much of this until it landed on my hand..on a ring that I always wear that my husband had bought me. My friend who was also with us commented on it landing there. I immediately felt like it was a sign from my husband and broke down into tears. It kept right beside me until my children came over then it started landing on each of their hands. When we started to leave it followed us to the car. As we were driving away I noticed something out of the corner of my eye..it was the butterfly at my window flying beside us as we pulled away. Since this happened I can’t stop thinking about it and wondering if it was really a sign from him or just a friendly butterfly.

  • Rose

  • chelsea

    Today I saw a pair of white butterflies flying over our small garden. The butterflies are not pure white, they both have black trimmings. They were jumping from one plant to another. They looked so beautiful and it filled my heart with joy. I looked up the meaning of seeing a pair of butterflies flying and some say it’s a symbol of love. I have been hoping to finally settle down and I hope that this is a sign from the universe that my hope will finally come true!

  • Ellie

    hi,
    last night i had a red and black butterfly fly into my room and the only window i had open was a tiny one. Me and my brother let it out and it flew away, tonight i found it between the linings of my curtain, its the exact same butterfly and its come back through the really tiny window.
    Just wondering if this means anything?

  • Jane

    A butterfly flew into the bedroom and could not get out. It seemed a bit panicky. My Husband captured and released it. He is currently out of work. Do you think this could be a sign that everything will be ok and he’ll get work soon?

  • hi me and my mum was in the kitchen yesterday when all of a sudden a butterfly flew in as soon as i went to take a picture the butterfly flew off out of the kitchen window, and today i was sitting here in the living room when another butterfly came in flew around and when i went to take a picture again the butterfly flew off out of my living room window but i feel very blessed and happy because me and my mum was talking about my step granddad a few minutes before is this a sign? x

  • Kim

  • pamela

    Today I woke up to my cat staring at the wall right above me as I woke up this morning. When i looked to check what she saw, i find a huge brown with black spots butterfly right above me. Should I be scared?? What does it mean.?

    • Never be afraid. Angels leave messages to make you feel comforted. The Angels are suggesting grounding, spending more time relaxing in nature. It will remove the constant thoughts and concerns that are circulating in your mind. ~ Karen

  • Lameca

    Just last week I noticed a butterfly flying around my window of my truck. Now every day the same one follows me wherever I go. Today it’s two what does that mean

  • Hi, my name is Trisha, i have had a beautiful butterfly in my garden for four days, it seems to spend most time on my pathway, close to me. There doesn’t appear to be any damage to its wings. I have been putting bits of fruit and sugary water out, also i put some on my finger and the butterfly sat there for a long time. The butterfly seems to be staying close to me and i have found myself thinking about it and constantly feel this has a meaning. Three years ago, my husband was murdered and it has been very hard as we had, had a bit of a disagreement, then he was gone. He knew i loves, butterflies and dragonflies and used to buy me ornaments, ect… I am due to have a full hysterectomy soon plus having to make a huge decision. Could my precious butterfly be a sign…

  • Riya

    few days back a huge butterfly flew into our house,sat on the curtain near window. it was a big one and thinking that it might get hit by something in the house and hence my husband made him move out. it was still trying to go here and there in the house and seem to be calm insect. few days later I saw the same butterfly on the apartment wall

    my husband is planning to take a new step in his career and we are willing to shift to our native down for some business. Is this any indication?

  • Riya

    i understand it to be transformation, however what it should be considered as, good or bad? transformation going to be good or bad, should we take the change in our career or not

    • You have seen this sign. It is wonderful to make connection, they know you are paying attention now. Now ask for another to give you clearer direction. Another sign will come. Here is a link to the most common signs http://signsofangels.net/?p=331 but they are most definitely not limited to these. ~ Karen

    Dear Karen, We have lived in our house for 25 years and never have butterflies come inside from the garden. This year it is a daily occurrence: great big red admirals sometimes two inside at once. Thankfully I have managed to attract them to a window and all have escaped without harm. Even today I had to let one out of my study window. It seems very strange that this has suddenly started happening.

  • Barbara

    Hello, I have a question about butterflies as well. About two months ago I found out I was pregnant and we were ecstatic! But this recent doctor’s visit crushed that happiness. I found out that my baby had stopped growing at nine weeks and they could not find a heartbeat. I have been crushed and I am going in for surgery tomorrow. I am inconsolable and always crying because this was such a shock and its killing me.

    Today I went for a walk with my husband and out of nowhere a butterfly came and landed right on my heart. After that, it flew over to a tree closeby. I got an overwhelming sense of comfort.

    I was just wondering if this has any meaning?

    • Barbara, Spirit often comes to us during our need for comfort … or is it that we call Spirit when we are in need? Either way, you have been told that they are sending you love during this transition. Good things are coming for you. Know this deep in your heart. ~ Karen

  • Jon

    For the last week, a yellow butterfly has flown next to me and my friend Heather, circles around us then flies away. This has happened everyday for about a week now. Today the butterfly came, circles us and began to fly away. My friend Heather said come back butterfly, and it came and made one more pass, it was amazing.

  • A few nights ago a butterfly flew into my apartment and I firstly thought it was a moth but I did not have the heart or ambition to hurt it. I figured it would find its way back out. The night after, he came and sat on my arm, and I saw how beautiful he is with gold and brown circles on his wings. Then I realized that He flew in the night of my Dad’s (In Heaven) Birthday. Also my boyfriend gave me a beautiful ring (that belonged to his Mom-in Heaven) that night, that took me off guard. I think my Dad might have been sending a message, and I wish I knew more details of what he’s saying.

  • Kate

    Hi, Karen yesterday I arrived at my girlfriend’s house & a beautiful yellow & green butterfly just appeared out of the trees flying by me. I also saw the same butterfly a few days before & did the same thing. Last week for 4 days in a row I saw morning doves & on the fourth day it was like they knew I didn’t look in the backyard at my friend’s house so they followed me home & I saw them at my window. I also keep seeing feathers where ever I am. Aremy aangels just letting me know I’m not alone or what is the message?

  • pritpal kaur

    Hi is it a good omen seeing white butterfly in my kitchen, I just prayed for good luck, hope God hears to it through butterfly, thanks

  • Kristin

    For the past six weeks since I have a white butterfly flying around me. On my first date with this new guy I have been seeing for six weeks it flew around him. It flys around me when I am by myself. The other night the guy I am seeing came by and when I opened the door there was the white butterfly flying around us. I was curious what the meaning of this is.

  • Donna

    Hi Karen lovely story’s I’m hearing here. I have three butterfly’s in the last three months. One landed on my son hand. And the I was sitting in park by a lake and two butterfly’s were flying around me and then would land on my back and fly off and then land on me again. And just sat gone me and my mate was chilling and having a laugh. Then I look up to see a butterfly on my lampshade In my living room. Wow three times and I have taken pics of all of them. Looking at the pics and there all the same colour brown and orange. Would love to know does this mean anything at all please thanks donna x

    • Brown is a grounding color … connection with the earth and life. Orange is the color of creation … birth, newness in relationships and/or business. Very nice. ~ Karen

    • Butterflies are a message of transformation. Believe in yourself and know you are growing wings of your own. Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? It is all possible. ~ Karen

  • John

    The day my wife died, and it was obvious she was going to, I said to her while she could still see and hear me, “Marty, I’d love a butterfly”.
    She died that night.
    The next day I had a series of four Butterfly Connected Events, which then culminated in a Red Admiral Butterfly landing EXACTLY in front of me and facing me.
    Is Marty alright?
    I KNOW THE ANSWER
    OF COURSE SHE IS!

  • Carol

    i had a dream of a beautiful black light blue and white butterfly who landed on my open hand, while the wings were so gently moving up and down
    please let me know what his means, and to also let you know that today is my birthday , I never had a dream of butterflies before. maybe there is a special meaning.
    thank you Carol

It left after this just wondering if this is her letting me know she has found peace.

  • Geenababi

    I see this bright neon yellow butterfly every where I go. It started two years ago when I met my girlfriend. Every where we were we saw this neon yellow butterfly, even while we were at work. It obviously couldn’t have been the same butterfly since we worked across town from each other. After a month or so of dating we stopped seeing them. Then about 6 months into our relationship we broke up and got back together a few days later, the butterfly came back too. Again it lasted about a month. Over the course of two years we have broken up about 3 or 4 times and currently not together. About 4 days ago, we decided to try to work it out one last time… since then we are again seeing the bright neon yellow butterfly but it just seems like it’s way more often now. Is this a sign that we are meant to be together or a sign or something at all? Neither of us have ever seen a butterfly like this until we met each other.

    • Butterflies are about transformation. Is also allowing enough room for each to grow – to have the freedom to fly. Perhaps many times during your relationship, one was feeling trapped or not able to reach your dreams. If this the case, see it and allow the freedom. Yellow is joy and happiness. Sounds like a great sign for the two of you. ~ Karen
