Sometimes we receive requests from readers who have their own butterfly experiences that they would like to share. Often, these encounters hold a deep spiritual significance to the person experiencing them, especially when they occur while thinking of a beloved friend or family member who has passed on. Here is one such message, submitted by Cassie:
Butterfly Spirit of Deceased
A year ago, while walking my dogs, a Monarch butterfly flew by closely, followed by a Butterfly with translucent wings that landed on my right index finger. The butterfly remained there for a minute or two before flying away. I had been thinking of a romantic interest who had recently passed on. I wonder if this experience was from the spirit of the deceased.
Message From Butterfly Spirit
As you probably know, butterflies are thought to carry messages from those who have passed on. Others even regard them as the physical embodiment of the souls of the dead.
This is especially true for Monarch butterflies, whose migration pattern leads them to Mexico each year for the annual Día de Los Muertos celebration. To those who celebrate these festivities, it is believed that monarch butterflies are the souls of ancestors who have come back to visit.
The Symbolism of Translucent Butterfly
A translucent butterfly, on the other hand, (no pun intended!) can symbolize a variety of things, including purity and resurrection. They are also thought to symbolize the souls of the dead.
With all this in mind, there’s actually a very good chance that your beloved knew you were thinking of them. Your beloved wanted to reciprocate somehow.
Spiritual Experience of Butterfly Landing on Me
Others believe that a butterfly landing on your finger is a sign that your psychic abilities are manifesting within you. It’s also possible that this experience was one of the first spiritual contacts you’ve made since these gifts awakened within you – perhaps there will be more to come.
We’d like to send a special thank you to our reader for writing to us about this heartfelt moment! Do you have a profound or unique butterfly experience you’d like to share?
