The significance of butterflies as signs of life after death is a worldwide belief. When a person suffering from the loss of a loved one has this kind of unique experience with a butterfly, they feel it is their loved one communicating with them. They interpret the appearance of the butterfly as a message that the deceased is okay and continues to live in another realm. Sometimes, the butterfly could be the soul of someone important that has passed away. They are telling you that you shouldn’t grieve too much about their loss. The butterfly signifies that they are in a better place now and that you should try to move on already.
