Merry meet @julib300
I’d say trust your instincts- if seeing them felt special, like something there just for you, then I’m convinced that it was
Butterflies are a wonderful symbol and often evoke powerful emotions After my great-grandmother passed away, my mother said she saw a butterfly and just knew that it was her grandmother’s spirit wishing her well from the other side.
When I lived in Japan I learned they have a similar belief- that in Japanese culture, butterflies are often symbols of transcendence: spirits moving between the land of the living and the land of the dead.
You don’t have to answer if it’s personal, but if you lost anyone dear to you, it may be that are wishing you well from the other side
Spiritual associations aside, butterflies have a host of other positive symbolism as well that may apply to you:
- Powerful transformation, metamorphosis in your life, personality
- Moving through different life cycles
- Renewal, rebirth
- The lightness of being, playfulness
- Elevation from earthly matters, tuning into emotional or spiritual
- The world of the soul, the psyche
From Spirit Animal: Butterfly Spirit Animal & Totem
It may very well that someone was wishing you well and that the butterfly was a sign that you are about to move into a new stage of your life- a time of renewal and elevation from your current worries
Wishing you all the best, Julie! Blessed be
