I haven’t seen butterflies for a long time. Suddenly though, in the past week, I saw two of them in odd ways.
The first one appeared while I was walking down an alley, something in the air caught my attention, I looked up and there was a butterfly flying like a bird very quickly to some destination. I say, flying like a bird, because usually a butterfly is flying close to flowers and flies in a fluttery type of way. This was so different.
The second one I saw today in the stairwell of my apartment building. I had to look twice, because I almost stepped on it. Sure enough, it was an orange looking butterfly. It was sitting with its wings closed. I looked to see if a window was open, nothing, so how did it make it in the building? If I wasn’t rushing, I would have tried to figure a way to put it outside again. The wings are so delicate, I was worried about this.
I did some research. I read that seeing a butterfly is important, because they signify transformation, personal growth and beauty.
What do you think? Is it normal to see butterflies in September when the weather is getting cold? Is there spiritual meaning behind this?
