In mythology, butterflies were the expression of the human soul. In ancient Greece, for example, people believed that after death their soul would turn into a butterfly or a dove.
Other legends say that butterflies are angels with petals of flowers or flowers that have caught wings after their prayer expressed to God to reach the sky.
The black background represents the darkness that surrounds you and prevents you from expressing your thoughts and feelings like a prison of your mind and body. Your choice of a butterfly can help you escape the darkness find the light in your life.
Look carefully at the 9 butterflies in the picture below and choose the one you like the most. Below the picture, you will find the corresponding result for the choice you made.
BUTTERFLY NO. 1 – THE SYMBOL OF RESTRICTIONS
If you chose the first butterfly, you probably noticed that its upper wings are a different color. That means you are struggling to be free, and you want to express this frustration and desire for freedom at every moment. Someone or something prevents you from expressing your thoughts as much as you would like.
This is one of the most painful problems you face: the fact that you fail to integrate and express yourself properly, as someone always interrupts you and that your ideas are not received properly or not even heard.
BUTTERFLY NO. 2 – THE SYMBOL OF DUALITY AND CONFUSION
You are eternally caught between two worlds, between the hammer and the anvil. You can hardly decide on anything in your life without feeling like you are under pressure.
You are always confronted with situations where you are caught between two friends who don’t like each other and you can’t give up either of them or choose between them.
What you want to say to everyone is that you are not a mediator, and the choices you make from now on will have to be for you and about you- not others. Time to put yourself first for once.
BUTTERFLY NO. 3 – THE SYMBOL OF ROUTINE
If you have chosen the number 3, you are the type of person who finds it difficult to make changes for the better, give up vices or start new things in life. You enjoy routine and comfort, and even though the monotony might get to you from time to time, you still prefer it to the unknown.
You need to step outside of your comfort zone and live life a little. Embrace the unknown, and try saying “yes” fro now on.
BUTTERFLY NO. 4 – THE SYMBOL OF SECRETS
You hide a very big secret about your life. You’ve done something in the past that you’re ashamed of, or you just have a frustration that can never tell anyone, because you do not think anyone would understand.
This big lie is eating you from the inside, but you are too afraid to reveal it. You need to find the courage to reveal your biggest secret to enjoy a life of peace and quiet.
Even if that means revealing to yourself; admitting and accepting is one of the hardest things we have to do in life.
BUTTERFLY NO. 5 – THE SYMBOL OF UNEXPRESSED LOVE
Your big problem is the fear of expressing your feelings about the person you love. You fall in love without anyone noticing it. You hold those feelings inside yourself tight, and when the one you love is approaching you, you ignore them because of your insecurity.
Once you find the courage to express those feelings and finally approach the one you love you will find happiness in your life.
A good starting point is to try loving yourself more each day. Tell yourself how amazing you are, and you’ll start to believe it.
BUTTERFLY NO. 6 – THE SYMBOL OF THE MISUNDERSTOOD ARTIST
You are attracted to the world of art and you are passionate about making creative things. You know how to express yourself through painting, music or writing, but others never understand what you are trying to say through your art.
You use too many coded messages, abstract things, too much mystery. Sometimes even you don’t understand what you actually want to express, and you risk falling into the trap of the philosopher who is always trying to convey something…but they don’t know what.
To understand yourself better, try quieting the mind with some simple breathing meditations.
BUTTERFLY NO. 7 – THE SYMBOL OF SINCERITY AND HONESTY
You are a very honest person, sometimes brutally honest. You don’t know how to lie and you don’t like to hide anything from those around you.
Your friends consider you an authentic person, who might be a bit harsh sometimes.
Try smiling and speaking with kindness, rather than blunt honesty. Sometimes a few kind words can do a lot more to help someone than brutal honesty.
BUTTERFLY NO. 8 – THE SYMBOL OF PERFECTION
You chose this butterfly because you want to be perfect. You are constantly struggling to find that balance of perfection, even though everyone tells you it doesn’t exist.
You are a very conscious person when it comes to work and relationships with friends.
Instead of trying to attain perfection, perhaps work on doing the best you can, and being the best version of yourself possible. There is no such thing as perfect, there is just “better than yesterday.”
BUTTERFLY NO. 9 – THE BOSS SYMBOL
If you chose the number 9, you are a person who likes to have full control of the situation. You would like for people to do everything you ask, to respond promptly to questions, and to do it all while using their brain.
You always act like the boss or have to have some sort of control, and that can come off as abrasive to those around you.
Try to be a little bit more humble in your life and people will respect you more and you will live a happier life. Let go of the reigns once in a while and enjoy the ride.
