Ladybug symbol


Since the past few nights, I've been seeing a small pretty ladybug in my room. Every night I put it on a piece of paper and shoo it out of my window, but then it's back again the next night. It's kinda pretty too and red and black in color. I think it likes my room. I have this feeling that it symbolizes something but can't figure out what. I even tried to google it out but couldn't find anything interesting. Any ideas??

Had two more visitors now, but sadly got killed due to the light bulbs in my room. What's with so many ladybugs in my room??

I found the following, which seemed interesting, here:

http://www.sayahda.com/cyc.html

The Ladybug

The ladybug is a member of the beetle family. They are found in nearly all climates and latitudes. They are hemispheric in shape, have short legs and are usually bright colored with black, yellow or reddish markings. Most reproduce sexually and females lay eggs. Their life cycle requires about four weeks, so several generations are produced each summer. This ties the ladybug to the energies of renewal and regeneration. Those with this totem are usually family oriented with strong morals and social values.

The name lady bug originated in the middle ages when this beetle was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and called the "beetle of our lady." This links the ladybug to spiritual idealism and religious devotion. Past lives associated with religion or the church are common for those with this medicine and some form of daily meditation or prayer are recommended.

This tiny little beetle packs a powerful message. Because the life cycle of the adult ladybug is short it teaches us how to release our worry and enjoy our life to the fullest. When it appears in our life it is telling us to "let go and let God."

An adult ladybug can consume several thousand aphids and other scale insects within a few months. Since these can be harmful to crop production farmers and growers have long considered the ladybug a good omen. Because of its diet the ladybug often has parasites and those with this medicine need to take care of their digestive system.

The ladybug is one of the few beetles that are well liked by humans. Unlike other beetles, the ladybug stirs a feeling of joy within us. Its small size denotes a delicate and loving nature. It emanates the energy of harmlessness and can show us how to stop harming ourselves.

The shell on its back serves to protect it from predators. Its wings fold against the body protecting its soft underside. Ladybugs have keen instincts and feel vibrations through their legs. This enables them to sense the energy of whatever they touch and is another form of protection. In spite of its size it appears to be fearless. A messenger of promise, the ladybug reconnects us with the joy of living. Fear does not live within joy. The need to release our fears and return to love is one of the messages it carries.

Ladybug teaches us how to restore our faith and trust in great spirit. It initiates change where it is needed the most. When ladybug appears it is asking us to get out of our own way and allow great spirit to enter.

Well, in the U.S they're thought to be good luck. If they land on you, you make a wish and blow on them to get them to fly away and grant your wish.

I'll PM you some meanings from a book, too, since I'm not sure if we're allowed to quote books at length.

I found this...

Symbolic meaning of the Ladybug:

Perhaps best known as an emblem of luck. When a Ladybug lands on you, it is said your wish will come true.

Asian traditions hold to the belief that if caught and then released, the Ladybug will faithfully fly to your true love and whisper your name in his/her ear. Upon hearing the Ladybug’s message your true love will hurry his/her way to your side.

In Ireland, the Ladybug is said to be a symbol of protection.

Ancient farmers of the land have considered the Ladybug a good omen as she controls aphid populations.

As a love symbol, this insect totem has been the subject of many wive’s tales in which the number of spots on a Ladybug’s back is said to indicate the number of months to pass before the wish for love comes true.

Thank you SSN for the great site. I have bookmarked it. I have recently started meditating due to recurring messages from my guides. Very true about letting go as I have been quite stressed lately due to exams next week. I need to let go of quite a few things actually. Thank you so much.

haha.. I read the same thing too online and tried the Asian tradition of taking my true love's name. But the poor bug died before it could fly away to him.

I always have lots of ladybugs in my house in the summertime. I usually name them and keep them around for luck.
