The White Butterfly~ The Signs of Transformation~ It's Happening Now

Within the Last several days the White Butterfly has made itself known to me.

Literally 3 or 4 of them crossing my path or floating by the window every few minutes . In ancient Native traditions around the world, they believed that the Universe or God, spoke to us through Nature, and the different animals and insects symbolizes different meanings. The butterfly in general is the symbol of metamorphosis, positive transformation.

The white butterfly signifies a message of Transformation, a bright new future , a rebirth and the ending of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one. It tells us that our ancestors, guides and Angels are all with us and protecting us along this Journey.

Everyone on this planet is experiencing this spiritual metamorphosis. We are seeing some struggling and fighting this Energy, but to no avail. The Beauty of LOVE is entering the heart space of those willing to receive it. This Pure Light is raising us up to become our highest light. We are transforming from the old way of being, which is angry, greedy, separated, and controlled to becoming loving, giving, compassionate and Unified beings. Everything is changing and nothing will be the same again. We have a choice to allow this transformation to take place with ease or we can fight it, causing chaos within and without our lives. The white Butterfly shows us that if a tiny little creature can change, so can we. We are being guided and protected as we make these changes. Trust in your own inner guidance. That spark within that is God, Trust that God is with you always, helping you to make the right decisions in your life.

Are you listening to this Guidance or ignoring it? We Must learn to Trust in our own inner knowing, this is the God within.

When we see a butterfly colored white, it could be some kind of spiritual sign.

As our spiritual world continually tries to establish communication with us, seeing butterflies would be a visible sign that it has messages for us. So, we should pay better attention to those signs. However, what other meanings the beautiful creature can have?

The spiritual meaning of a white butterfly.

The white butterfly’s spiritual meaning depends on Earth’s cultures. People from several cultures and religions have various beliefs when it comes to this butterfly.

The dreams carriers.

Blackfoot, which is a Native American tribe, considers such butterflies the dreams carriers. When someone falls asleep, the dreams of that person are carried by the butterfly colored white. This is why they have the ability to travel quite easily between the physical and spiritual world. They have the ability to carry messages.

The good luck carriers.

In a lot of religions in this world, white butterflies symbolize fortune and good luck. They are also said to be the messengers that carry good news, or also the messengers who tell us that our life is going to be a good one.

The soul carriers.

In some countries like Ireland and China, white butterflies also carry the diseased one’s soul. Moreover, in Ireland, they even carry the diseased children’s souls. Until somewhere in the 1600s, killing white butterflies was illegal.

Messengers of changes.

The white butterfly is the messenger that tells us that spiritual changes are coming. It can even be a sign of wisdom and spiritual growth. For instance, for those of you that recently started some spiritual practice, this butterfly will signify that you made the right decision.

Messages from the world of angels.

Butterflies are also an angelic sign. Angels want us to know they are close to us. Also, they constantly watch over us and protect us. When we are in some difficult situation, the white butterfly will be the sign from our angels, telling us that they are going to guide us through all the problems.
