Ladybug Power Animal Symbol Of Past Lives Enlightenment

Posted By Ina Woolcott

Ladybug’s medicine includes carrying the golden strand that leads to the centre of the universe, past lives, spiritual enlightenment, death and rebirth, renewal, regeneration, fearlessness, protection, good luck, wishes being fulfilled, protection.

The ladybug is small and brightly coloured, usually with black, yellow or red markings and belongs to the beetle family. They are to be found in nearly all climates and latitudes. The shell on the ladybugs back gives protection from predators, with their wings closing against their body’s to give protection to their soft underside. With their keen instincts the ladybugs feel vibrations through their legs, allowing them to sense the energy of what they touch, another form of protection. The ladybugs colouring also warns predators to stay away, and we should follow this example by sending out the same messages to our foes and woes. Also, like ladybug don’t be aggressive, yet defend yourself if needed.

Although the lady bug is a beetle, it is still liked by humans – their small size symbolises and gentle loving nature, and they give off an energy of being harmless. This shows us how to stop harming ourselves. Though small in size the ladybug is fearless. As fear cannot exist amongst joy, the ladybug brings a message of promise, for they get us back in touch with the joy of living – we must let go of our fears and go back to our roots, to love. We are also taught to restore our trust and faith in the universe, we have to get over ourselves, our egos, and allow life to take its course going with the flow.

The name ladybug has its roots in the middle ages, when it was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and called the beetle of our lady. This links it to spiritual idealism and religious devotion. Ladybug people frequently have past lives linked to religion or church – daily meditation is recommended.

In general ladybugs reproduce sexually, with the female laying eggs. Their life cycle is only about 4 weeks long, meaning that over a summer several generations are produced, linking the ladybug to the energies of regeneration and renewal. Their short life span teaches us not to worry, and to live life to the full and always in the now. Let go, let the universe and your inner voice guide you. People with this totem are generally family orientated, have strong morals and social values.

Adult ladybugs can eat thousands of aphids and other scale insects in their life time, and have long been regarded as a good omen by farmers and crop growers as these can be detrimental to crop production. However, due to its diet the ladybug often has parasites – a message to those with this power animal to look after their digestive system.

Ladybug showing up in ones life foretells a time of luck and protection, where wishes start to become actualised. The seasons of autumn and spring will be the most plentiful times for those with this power animal. Worries will quickly disperse when ladybug appears as they shield us from our aggravations, paving the way for new found happiness – aim high, you will get what you focus on. However, ladybug also cautions us not to force things or try to hard to fulfil your wishes, go with the flow and let things take their natural course. Your wishes will come true when they do – in their own time!

  1. I’ve been involved in the metaphysical arts for over 25 yrs. and recently had a wonderful ladybug experience I wanted to share: I was walking to a potential new employer’s store just to check them out and, unbeknownst to me, a ladybug alighted on my hair on the way over. When I got there, one of the current employees saw the ladybug and told me where it was. Of course, knowing the ladybug’s symbolism and spiritual assistance characteristics, that made me quite excited that this will be a good move to this employer should they select me. Pretty cool, eh?? I looked up your article on ladybugs and have it printed out and posted on my bathroom mirror. Blessed Be.

  2. I lived in a highrise building with my mother & 2 daughters on the 9th floor. There is a long story to this but ill tell it in short. Up to the happenings of my ladybug experience i had been unhappy inside somewhat and felt bitter or evil perhaps. Not to a point where id harm anyone, maybe by my hurtful words. But my mother had a dog that i really hated only because of how the dog acted and how dirty & smelly she could be. Anyways one day i kept finding a lady bug in our apartment, i picked it up & cruely flicked it out the window. This not only happened once but several times that i had found a ladybug in the home and flicked it out the blacony window. One day i had a ladybug crawling on my wrist and i finally told my mother about what keeps happening with the lady bug issue. I tell her i keep finding lady bugs this is so strange! She says maybe someone is trying to tell you something or a sign to change your ways?…that year my mom passed away from cancer in 2014 it was crazy because she went for a check up & the doctor said she had 6 months to a year to live. It was such a shock & 4 months later she had passed away…:( i repeatedly think about those lady bugs and feel guilty at the fact that i was so cruel to just flick them out the window. I have changed dramatically since then and ive been drawn alot closer to God . I feel a strong connection with him and the lady bugs. Lady bugs really are a sign and they are so Gentle & kind. Be nice to the ladybug the next time you see one because my mom was right. They really are a sign & symbol

  3. I have found tons of ladybugs all over my house. I’ll look down & see them at my feet. Some kind of message…

  4. I keep finding lady bugs all over my house. One day I joined some friends for lunch approx 20 miles from my home. I was sat down eating and a lady bug landed on my hand. It was so surprising because we were in a restaurant.
    At the moment I’m trying to get back to work after having a baby. Setting up a business can be hard. Perhaps the lady bug is telling me not to be discouraged and to keep believing work will come my way.
    Well I hope!

  5. It is no coincidence that I found this blog as an answer! Yesterday evening on my way back to home, I found a yellow-coloured ladybug on my coat sleeve. As I was trying to make meaning of this experience, I found your blog. And thank you so very much for sharing your words. It really helped me understand in this present journey.

  6. 13 days ago I had a gran mal seizure and after being rushed to hospital was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Needless to say, my perspective on life has drastically changed and I am now more than ever open to the energies and signs this universe has to offer.
    Today I went in for my pre-admittance meetings with my surgical team to have all my pre-surgery testing done. During my first test, bloodwork (with the needle in my arm I might add) my technician says to me, “I don’t mean to alarm you, but there is a ladybug in your beard.”
    My initial reaction was to knock it out of my mustache as I was now aware of its trajectory towards my right nostril. It fell to my lap where it remained on my shorts for the duration of the blood work and even while I got up to meet my mother (and show her my visitor). I’d also like to mention that my tumor is on my right frontal lobe… coincidence dear ladybug?
    I was well aware of the good luck aspect that ladybug represents; however I am now more than ever sure of the sign I received from the powers that be. The intense calm and centering I feel about my surgery tomorrow is hard to put to words. I want to take this moment to thank you for your article which has supplied more clarity and reassurance as I move forward in this healing journey.
    From my heart to yours, namaste.

  7. I have a very special ladybug story to share.. I came on this site looking for some kind of symbolism because I’ve never been a spiritual person, but this story is incomprehensible. My brothers’ best friends were both killed in a terrible accident last October, and it devastated many people in our community. They were a couple on their way to a family thanksgiving dinner. They were the most beautiful kids I’ve ever met inside and out, and both had very promising futures and were great rugby players. When the boy, Cody, was born his mother got a ladybug tattoo on her foot, and after Cody passed away the ladybug became a symbol for him, used by everyone. His mother had memorial socks made and they had ladybugs on them, every post on Facebook included the ladybug symbol – when you saw a ladybug you thought of Cody. My brothers’ rugby team went on tour recently to Japan and South Korea. The whole tour was centered around Cody – the boys jerseys had his initials on the shoulder, the ladybug socks were given out to the man of the match, and they spread some of his ashes when they were in Japan. My brother was to give a speech to the boys before the tournament started and as he stood there in Japan, thousands of miles away from home, a ladybug landed on him. The bug stayed on him all through the speech. My brother, who has always claimed to be a true “realist” with no spiritual beliefs was in complete shock and collapsed in tears. All of the boys on the team claimed that they felt Cody’s presence that day. When that happens to someone you love, and a whole team of boys feel it, it’s really hard to deny that there’s more to life than we know.

  8. I was wondering if it means something specific if you see a “albino” ladybug??
    I was looking outsite my window, thinking about the future, when this white beautiful creature landed just in front of my eyes… It was beautiful… But infact this is my third “albino” bug in a very short time (within two weeks) – so couldn’t stop wondering what the universe is trying to tell me ? Hope someone outthere has a clue for me❤️

    1. I think it means “think out of the box”. Trust to what is not generic. Universe is full of suprises and it is not always what we think. An albino ladybug is a ladybug. It is not in the colors you expect it to be. It is different, just like you. Maybe its a message for you to expand your horizons. You definitely have luck on the extraordinary side. Enjoy!

  9. Let me start off that my wonderful grandmother past in 2012 . Since her passing me and my family have gone thru such trials and tribulations . I found out my husband wasn’t being faithful in our marriage before her death to cancer and I went thru a rough divorce And while going thru the divorce my Uncle passed and they suspected foul play do I need to say more . Our family has gone thru so much more on top of this that I wish not to get into. After she passes I see ladybug appear all the time …It could be a live ladybug or an object that is a ladybug! I came across this page in 2012 and was blown away . This week it was three times once at my job once at the store and get a load out of this my sister ordered toys from a site to sent my dog and they send you the toys they think is best for your dog and guess what one of them is yup a ladybug …I feel see is telling me something and I’m not getting the message…..Does anyone have any input ?

  10. There was a ladybug on my car Sept 4, yesterday on the left side on the passenger door. I haven’t heard from my fiancé since Wednesday night, talking about the wedding plans and what has been transpiring negatively. Yesterday the 4, he called been in I.C.U. and still is..they discovered he is seriously ill. Last night, I got a vision God was standing near his bedside for a long time keeping his eyes on him, then into the morning today, non stop God is sitting on his bed, still keeping his eyes on my fiancé. I asked God, please don’t take him home (heaven) yet. Still no word from my fiancé. I felt my fiancé slipped away during the night and yet I feel me fiancé holding his arms around me, very powerful! Yet, they won’t let me see him.

    1. The negative things is not between him and me, its indirectly to me. It’s what people close to him, did alot of damage to him and his livelihood. We both are in 60’s. He believes in God as much as I do.. God is # 1 with us. Is the lady bug telling us something? The 1st time the ladybug came to us a few months ago, when we went to his sister’s grave site. This is twice now. Yesterday on my car and with my fiance and me, a few months ago.

  11. So this past couple weeks have been quite stressful, broke up with my boyfriend and subsequently signed off work for a month for depression. I have been feeling a bit better last couple days and this afternoon when leaving my house and shutting my front door is saw about 20 ladybugs all around my door , ceilings in the block and windows. This really scared me at first but after reading these posts not so sure I should be scared. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm is there hope through ladybugs????

  12. Yesterday morning I ran into my ex husband. We were married for over 20 years. Divorced for 17 years. It was a brief, chance encounter and for a few minutes I felt as though all the personal and career changes and advancements I’ve accomplished never took place. Instead of mentally planning my day’s work I was once again a new mother with an abusive husband. The years melted away and it was an odd feeling. I felt a bit off kilter. I stopped just outside the building to get my thoughts together. As soon as I stopped, a ladybug flew straight to me and landed on my chest. It stayed there for about a minute. I found it oddly calming. I gathered my thoughts and went on my way. This morning I decided to look up ladybug symbolism. I came across this blog and now it makes perfect sense.

  13. For the past month ladybugs are everywhere in our house! Ive always known them to be good luck so we didnt object. Now on a daily basis there are at least five in the house and my house hasnt been more calm and pleasant in months! Financial stability, love for my wife and our future, is overwhelming now! My mom and my wife grandmother spirits are here too i think. Its an awesome feeling
