Detailed dream interpretation...

 

A butterfly is a symbol of happiness. A dream about a butterfly may be telling you to return to the simpler things in life, or reminding you of your fun playful spirit. A butterfly may also represent rebellion against authority, since a butterfly represent youth who have not grown enough to respect the rules.

 

If you are having some sort of midlife crisis, or if you are approaching another major life development such as becoming a senior citizen, you may dream of turning into a butterfly. If you dream about a young butterfly, you are feeling unsure about this transition and wishing to go back in time. If you dream about an older butterfly, or a butterfly building a cocoon, you are much more comfortable with the transition and may in fact be looking forward to it.

 

To loose a butterfly can signify loss of love, but can also indicate a needed spiritual surrender – is there something in your life at the moment that you need to sacrifice?  A butterfly is also a Christian symbol which means spiritual enlighten. This is a dream which is normally classified as spiritual enrichment. To see butterfly which is tropical (different colors) means that you will have a successful life!

Butterfly’s may represent our strengths and weaknesses and our physical and mental health. If you are currently experiencing a very difficult time in your life, you may have dreams that feature a butterfly. Don't worry; you may be venting some hidden fear.
 

 

The butterfly may also represent the spirit or the essence of your soul. Butterflies are symbols of alteration, as in nature they go through transformation. They are gorgeous, elusive, and at times inspirational. This dream may also signify that your unaware mind may be pointing out the most optimistic part of yourself or another.
