*** … if we allow beauty and grace to fill our lives…The firefly magic ****
Yesterday night i had a firefly inside my house that flew by my nose when i was in meditation.
I opened my eyes because i felt a presence a saw the glowing that at first scared me before i realized what it was…
Then i was just so freaking happy about having a glow worm coming by and giving me company in meditation.
They are super rare in Germany but quite common in rainy season here…
Today I looked up the spirit animal meaning of the firefly and this is what I found
“As a creature of light, it should come as no surprise that the firefly is a symbol of illumination.
They truly are majestic, under-appreciated insects because of their ordinary, uninspiring appearance during the daytime hours.
However, as darkness falls, fireflies turn into the remarkable (and beautiful) illuminators of the night.
This seeming contradiction serves as the firefly’s animal totem’s most fundamental symbol in the spiritual world:
Things are not always the way they seem.
At first glance, this insect is unassuming and does not stand out from its surroundings.
Soon after and without fail, though, the firefly emits its radiant glow, providing a guiding lantern in the surrounding darkness.
The firefly symbolism reminds us that our paths are made lighter if we allow beauty and grace to fill our lives.”
Firefly Associated Traits:
Passion, Guidance, Self-Illumination, Freedom
Exactly the traits after which I desire to live my life!
Furthermore it says:
For humans, the firefly meaning has an abundance of positive and inspiring messages that should be internalized and never forgotten.
First, our physical appearance does not define us.
Rather, it’s what is inside our hearts and minds that truly represent what each of us are made of, and we should take care of this part of our soul and allow it to shine.
Secondly, the firefly symbolism reiterates that this light has an elaborate purpose that cannot be ignored.
Fireflies use their lights as signals to attract mates. They must use them precisely and with an exact and deliberate plan in mind if they are to be successful.
This spiritual totem’s message dictates that we must be conscious, pay attention to intricacies, and exercise persistence if we wish to achieve success in our own lives.
Specifically, humans need to plan and react accordingly in order to attract desirable people, places, and things throughout life.
However, this is not to say that we should run ourselves into the ground with efficiency.
Fireflies do not use heat to ignite their lights, symbolizing that we need not burn ourselves out in the pursuit of our goals.
The process should be natural, free-flowing, and jovial so as to not extinguish our guiding light.
The firefly also acts as an environmentally-friendly lightbulb, in a sense.
Although it provides such great light and energy, it does not consume a lot from its surroundings to do so.
In addition to reminding of us of the importance of our internal character.
The light from fireflies appropriately represents hope, guidance, inspiration, and awakening.
They implore us to listen to our hearts and let them lead the way toward truth and light.
Fireflies symbolism bring magic and a sense of childlike wonder into our often chaotic and busy lives.
Their presence is meant to bring back nostalgic memories of youth and innocence, when the world was a magical dream land and nothing was outside the realm of possibility.
As you watch the graceful firefly dance across the sky, it becomes impossible to remain uninspired.
The melodic and joyful dancing is meant to ignite your inner passion and the fire in your heart and drive you to use express it joyfully.
These jovial fireflies bring the gifts of self-illumination, infatuation, and freedom of spirit by reminding us that anything is possible as long as we believe.
