  • Pls explain to me why there’s a fly in my room tonight because usually, flies don’t go out at night and it’s not supposed to be in my room during my sleep, and it was a SINGLE fly which is also weird. I’m thinking there might be a dead body something in my room or something rotten but i don’t even smell anything bad in my room either. So what now ?

  • Excuse my grammer errors.

    Ok… for the past few months maybe years I come into contact and or across a fly, Now this in every part of daily life when eating, at the gym, at work, at home etc… I do clean and nevwr leave food out so that doesnt explain the fly in my bedroom roght now… i am loke what? I even seen one in my car, so i open the window and say shuuu fly dont bother me… anyways today (not the forst time) at the restaurant a fly floating around a meeting i was having over dinner…. really? anyways I keep myself and my space clean yet I always come into contact or get a visit from a fly… dont know what it mean but i usually open a widow or door to let it out. I think .going crazy but several time i seen one in my room i swear i let it out sp how did it come back in lol… nev less all jokes aside what does this really mean? thank you

  • Found a hurt fly crawling for it’s life at my doorstep. And then, I kid you not, that day, In the shower. A fly lands on the wall, lands on my body, and washes to the floor. I was like, “WTF.” It’s winter outside, there are no flies outside… AND, I Kid you not… ##$%, I pick it up and try and save it and… not trying to be dramatic here, it #$%^ing dies in my hand. LIKE WTF. I WAS GOING TO SAVE YOU IN THREE SECODNS AND YOU DIE!? WHAT. DOES. THAT. MEAN! HA. I BET NO ONE KNOWS!!!

    • You want the reality of this?
      If you understand this your alright in my eyes. A dark fly is not of any means an enemy but is telling you what your doing is out of your nature if you let them
      do what they must without causing harm to the fly, also all animals vibrate towards the highest frequency not the most righteous frequency
      A White fly Is A very good sign that your on the right track with Christ you can see all of this even before Christ initiates you
      A Squirrel is a friendly animal and vibrates on the frequency of two people in harmony -Not Sex-
      A Bee I’m not too sure personally I want to think that’s its sent in if the flys start to bother you. but I’m sure there is another reason for them
      CHRIST CONCONCIOUSNESS – Birds The messengers from the sky They are to assist you in anyway they can for the reason of helping a soul (if you allow them into your life without force if your mean to the birds they will go quiet) but they are very helpful when all hope is lost Stay safe with this

      You can either have a flowing holy mind or a Burning insane mind (I have not been that close but close enough to know you can get trapped)
      SPIRITUAL WARFARE – angels and demons

    • In our home there is always big fly coming in and stay long for a week. Sometimes I let it out inside our home but its coming back home again and I was surpriced why it always go inside our home? What message did it bring?

  • So recently my fiancé and I have noticed huge blow flies in our home. We moved in only a month ago, and the house is always spotless. I’ve even been even more stern on the cleanliness since we noticed the blow flies, but they never go away. We kill one a day, and the next day a new one appears. I’ve been feeling very down lately, just issues with finding my happiness and being kind to myself. Today in particular, my fiancé and I had a heart to heart because I have just been so down. He went to the bathroom and that’s when I noticed the “blow fly of the day”. It literally came flying right at me and began to circle me. When my guy came out of the bathroom I brought the fly to his attention and he attempted to let it out of the house. I headed to the bathroom and after 5 minutes of being in there, the gigantic bull fly was there flying right at me!
    I’m wondering if this means anything. I had a similar experience with hummingbirds on two different occasions where they literally flew up to me and hovered right above my face for seconds. It’s ironic because I remember on those days I was feeling down about myself as well. It’s almost as if they were looking right at me. Very strange, but also very exciting.

    • Hi kada flies like that come from dead animals (they may have exterminated before you came) try appear suddenly and are quite large!

    • I’ve heard of a thing where flies can come in through sewer vent pipes like where washing machine drain-hose goes in (or maybe basement floor drains?) they were actually calling them sewer flies. Eww!

  • Hello,
    So I came home from work yesterday for a brief moment to get some clothes to leave again to do a photo shoot. And I left my Lamp on in my bedroom (normally i turn it off before i leave for work.) but when i came into my room i went to go turn that lamp off, and there was a fly, on its back. I didn’t see it move at all, and i ended up leaving my lamp on and leaving the fly. When I got home late night, the fly was still there on its back, i bumped my night stand and then it started moving…. but never flew away. What does it mean to see a fly on its back. I thought it was dead, until i bumped the table bc i was going to pick it up.
    And also a few days ago, I had a fly stuck in between my screen and glass window. HOW DID IT GET IN THERE? There are no holes in my screen…. I know that there is change coming into my life , however Im trying to know what the fly on its back meant??? (And i also am an OCD clean freak)

  • I Have a Fly On My Window Screen That Won’t Leave For Nothing In The World, Rain Storm, Snow Storm It’s Still Sitting There, Can Someone Please Tell Me What It Mean Spiritually?

  • my daughter rebirth from a drug overdose and I as asleep a day afer the rebirth and she laid on my head an said momma wake up shut the door don’t let the flies in, I jumped up and ran to the door on the way to the door The Most high said I change them in the twinkling of an eye. What is this about?

  • I’ve noticed at home there are a couple of flies and a few gnats that won’t go away. At first I thought maybe I had missed something while cleaning (I am highly OCD) but now I’m not sure because this has now started happening at work. There’s one fly that won’t seem to leave me alone. I don’t know what to do anymore. Is there something going on that I’m missing?

    • I too always have a fly near me. At home at work. I’m sitting in front of a frozen yogurt shop on a cloudy rainy day…and there it is. The fly. Strange really. Hhmm…

      • i had an encounter with a lot of files swarming over my camera bags and as i shifted the location of the bags the files suddenly went away. the bags were clean and the table was clean. i moved the bags just about 3 feet away.

  • So when I was little, my dad told me about the time his father died and how he noticed a fly was in the hospital on my grandfathers bed the night he passed away. He said he couldn’t stop thinking about the fly for some reason. When he was on the airplane to go back to NY he noticed there was a fly on his arm rest and it stayed with him the whole flight. That story always stuck with me and for years I always thought about it…. In April this year, a few days before my father passed, I noticed there were flies constantly around me, in class, in the bathrooms at school, my house, literally everywhere and it was so weird to me. The night before my dad passed, there was a fly next to my bed and it randomly buzzed in my ear for a few seconds, it kept buzzing as if it were trying to tell me something. The next day my father passed and there was a fly next to me while I was crying on my bed and one when I was comforting my brothers on the kitchen floor. (There’s rarely ever flies in my house btw) That same night I bought a flight ticket to Ecuador for the next morning for my dads viewing. The second day in Ecuador was my dads funeral, (usually in the states, the first half of coffins are open and you are physically able to touch the corpse of your loved one, in Ecuador the first half of the coffin is sealed with clear glass) my brothers, uncle, aunt, grandmother and cousin were surrounding his coffin to say our goodbyes and were reminiscing all the good times we had with my dad, until my cousin noticed something was in the coffin (MIND YOU THE COFFIN IS SEALED WITH A CLEAR GLASS SO NO HOLES, SLITS, CRACKS, ETC WERE FOUND), SO there was a mothafuckin fly on my dads nose. Like how the hell could that possibly have gotten there? All of our jaws dropped, it was unbelievable. So now 5 about to be 6 months have gone by and there’s been two flies following me everywhere. Last night I had a dream about my dad and I felt him hug me in my dream, I then woke up to a fly on the pillow right beside me, its so weird. I feel like I’m going crazy or something but I feel a deeper connection to these flies… I’m not sure what this means? 😕

    • Hi Kaylene
      I have been experiencing the same thing, not sure what is really means. You said you flew to Ecuador for your dad’s services, wow, I am also from there but raised in Southern California.

    • My sister passed on july 7 2016 in her house. I dealt with all issues at her place. Flies were always dancing around the spot where she died. Around the first of august some weird accidents happened to me. Then i started to notice 1 fly with me all day and night no matter what i did. I started to take pictures and plan to publish a book about this experience. It is now over 3 months and it continues.she is on my bathroom mirror right now at 127 am. 10/25/2016. At this point the only thing i can do is journal and document. This is so strange because my cats do not see this. At times there have been 2 or 3 as well. But never more than that.

      • It is November 20 and this still continues in my life. I have hundreds of pics and starting a documentary book about this experience. I have many personal witnesses as well. Wish I could post some of the pics for you now

        • my old house I lived in was haunted. sounds crazy but the ghost protected me. now that I have moved back to my mom’s house (she is very christian) not very many paranormal activities happen but even just tonight before I went to bed, there was a fly on the ceiling. I tried with my hand to scare it and I could get within 3 inches of it and it wouldn’t move at all. Most flies you’d think would move when you do that. Earlier tonight I was at my friend’s house and he was like did I just see a fly? Other friend called him crazy, I kept my mouth shut. It is ALWAYS 1 fly. strange indeed, the house I was renting was built in 1931, my moms is 1970s. I think there was a lot of past in that house that I did not know and I don’t know if talking to the ghost was a good or bad thing. I am still alive today.

          I looked up what a fly means:

          Know that quick and abrupt changes in your thoughts, emotions and endeavors are afoot. Rapid changes in all aspects of your life are currently happening for you so be prepared to move quickly even in unfavorable and uncomfortable conditions. Fly can also signify an exponentially growing source of abundance is available for you right now. Use your keen eyesight to see the way. Never give up.

          Alternatively this insect could be reminding you that your persistence in reaching your goals will bare fruit sooner than later. Even if it means annoying others or being selfish for a while – you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.

          Additional Associations for Fly…
          Survival
          Deal with Issues
          Multifaceted vision
          Persistence
          Ability to change waste into valuable assets
          Transformation
          Adaptation to the harshest environments||

          I am currently at my moms with nothing. I care more about others than myself which in this day and age apparently no one reciprocates.

          “Even if it means annoying others or being selfish for a while – you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.”

          I am too intelligent for my own good and possibly this is a sign. Does any of this relate to you?

    • Kaylene,

      “SO there was a mothafuckin fly on my dads nose.”

      I’m sorry about your grandpa and your father’s passing. However, this line right here, lets me know you’re a dope ass chick.

      Good luck with everything 🙂

    • Hi Kaylene
      In your situation it seems that the fly is a forwarning of sickness and or death .
      The fly in your ear can mean someone was trying to tell you something discreetly that you may not want to hear .
      I get the sense that something else is going on too but can’t place it . I keep seeing wooden almost totem poles with etched faces on the tops kind of similar to the face of the king in a deck of cards and they look as if they are supposed to be put in the ground .
      The flies that your seeing at times are being used by your father and were used by his father as well to let you know he’s with you , they chose the fly because they both knew that it would make both your father and you immediately take notice and think of him ..
      So no your not going crazy it is what you think .
      I feel a strong bond here and more then just father daughter but on a spiritual level.
      I hope this helps somewhat ,

    • My boyfriend died 12 days ago since then these fruit flys have been bugging me non stop in the shower wen im sleeping always trying to go up my nose i thought i was overthinking i even came to my moms in a different city and wen i went on my phone one flew right on my screen its like they are following me !

  • Hi I didn’t believe at first that insects have spirits but the past week this house fly has been following me everyday, it also keeps an eye on what I’m doing and when I’m sleeping. Also me and my boyfriend were playing around and the fly started attacking him.
    The only possibilities I can think of this is I’ve had two cats in the past, my first cat Sweetie and my second Toopy. I know by now sweetie has passed but I am unsure of Toopy as I haven’t seen him in a year. Can an animals spirit find a way to get to you in the afterlife?

  • Hi
    its been four years a house fly in different occasions (i have killed some of them) keep chasing me every where different cities, countries(UK, Spain, Turkey, USA), inside the house, car, work, lifts, aeroplanes, in my room. in past two years i travelled a lot and in every connecting or direct flight that house fly was present. can any one help me what is all about ???

  • Hello, Recently my cat passed away and since I came back from a much needed break a fruit/house fly hass been following me. I joked to say it was my cat because just like her this fly follows only me, sits on me and tge most freakiest part is it will stare at me or buzz by my ears to get my attention.
    It’s been following me for over a month now… I asked it this morning “What is it you want to tell me” it got up and hovered and tried to lead me to the back door. It’s really weird… It doesn’t bite me like most flies do, it doesn’t stay in kitchen/bin where most flies might be seen due to sweets and food. What is also strange is I opened the back door to let it go but it just sits there. I thensaid “show me” and it moved to where my cat’s ashes are.

    At first I was joking about it being my cat but the more and more it follows me and almost responds to me is scary. I hope I’m not going nuts from the grief and just sub-consciously hoping it’s her… Either way I can’t help but feel that it’s trying to something.

    I always thought of cat’s being my spirit animal but maybe that was just my cat. I am looking after a kitten who was originally feral but settling nicely now, im pretty sure we saved eachother him from certain death and me from a certain breakdown (hearing/feeling my old cat all the time). Since I’ve not heard/seen/felt her was when the fly appeared. Also I know flies don’t usually live long… So why is this one being very wary of everyone else but me? Why is it not interested in food or my smelly housemates? Just me, following me, buzzing for my attention, looking at me (i dont mean it seems to look at me itdoes I can get so close I can sit face to face with it, I can hold it in my hands and even stroke it – if I pat a surface it lands on it)

    • Wow Adrastia! You are not going nuts and I believe you are right in your insight. It is your cat telling you that no matter what , even he/she has passed away she/he is accompanying you and will always be there. Our pets/animals when passed away stays with us in spirit. That is the message that this fly is telling you. Once you realize it she may fly away or come back in time when you need to be reminded. A few years ago, I was a a workshop and a guy shared about the lost of his animals and loved ones, suddenly I felt and saw my dog Japser appearing at my side. Also one of my cats died and he showed up in the clouds a few days later. They never leave us. I don’t only believe it but know it. So trust in that. Your cat is with you.

      Blessings.

      • Thank you for that, I was worried it was trying to inform me of something…
        My Cat and I were very very close. I always wanted a kitten to bring up since I was a very little girl and i got her 8 yrs ago. my Cat was sold to me and I was not informed of her real age until I got home by text. She was much too young but returning her to the hovel I got her from would not have helped as her mother was pregnant again. She had a very unique personality, I trained her effortlessly and if I told her off she would argue back like a 13 yr old child. She was put down in july as her kidneys failed (was running on like 12%) it happened all very suddenly.

        The fly is still hanging with me getting only shy when I try to record it. Just like my cat it sits on my shoulder. It seems more relaxed now then it did… Maybe as I’m due to go Dr’s after putting it off for so long. It’s very strange, I do and don’t want to believe it, it could just all be coincidence…
        Maybe it means something else… Maybe I read too much into it… My Cat is alive and well in my dreams and thus see her everynight – I usually try to ‘hide’ her, just like my late younger brother, like their alive but no one else can know.

        • So the fly dropped out of the blue into my hands dying literally I didn’t even notice how or why it fell or was dying. I placed it on a piece of dry fruit gave it some sugar water and put it somewhere warm and safe. I stepped away for a moment and when I went back it had vanished. Gone. Nowhere to be seen… I have thought that this was my cat who i had put down whilst in my arms. I kept wondering if i should have let her die in her own time but this message was clear… She would have passed away but not whilst I was there… Could of been anytime… And to not be tgere would of almost been like abandonment… I miss her terribly but know that, with this message, saving her from the pain and in the arms of the loving owner is most comforting way to go… We alll dream of being with our loved ones at death, not being alone. I understand this now… Thank you for reading my message which was sent to me, i hope it helps others who may feel the same about loss xx

          • Just wanted you to know i recently had a pretty surreal experience with my dog. You’re not alone!! Thanks for sharing your story 🙂

  • Anyone know about the meaning of blow flies?
    I am moving into a new house and when i opened the door – the inside was swarmed with blow flies – i couldn’t believe it. they were definitely giving me a message.
    thanks 😯

  • I love this and part of it resonates with me. The past few days flies have been trying to get my attention. However: this morning out of nowhere I woke up to a kitchen floor riddled with maggots/fly larvae. I don’t have an unusual amount of flies or filth in my kitchen but I know it is trying to alert me to something.
    I googled maggots and came back with only dream interpretations that did not vibe at all. Is there a different sort of significance around larvae?

    • Search for the time they take until becoming flies, something within that period will manifestate/transform in your life. I had a similar experiente, just can’t recall how much time it means!

  • ❓ So lately I have been meditation a lot more frequently, and I have noticed that while in meditation I get a fly on each of my limbs or more. And thats not all, I picked up a stink bug off of my floor and walked him outside, he rested on my finger for a good 15 min. Then just now I had fly on my wall that looked different. So I got up close to him and said, oh to be a fly on the wall, and he literally let me put my finger right up to him, without moving… so I sat back down and pondered what all of this could me, I mean last week I had a dream of an Egyptian Beetle on a wall talking to me telepathically… although I ant remember what was said. I just know I talked to it.. If anyone else has some insight, great.

    • Maybe it means you have your energy in such a peaceful vibration that not even bugs are afraid 🙂 about the beetle, years ago I found a metal egipcian beetle in my bed. I was so happy it was a gift from my dad I thought (I was 9 or 10 I think) but after hours with it I’ve discovered it was alive and not an objectivo/gift. I left him for a while and he was gone after. I believe it was an omen that I was more sensitive and spiritual than I knew. Like a passage symbol/omen.

    • Hi Mary,
      I have the same experience. I try to meditate regularly and every time I am able to get into good meditation a fly sits on me and I seem to attract one fly almost everywhere I go. But the same thing doesn’t happen if I have not meditated for a long time.

  • I have to share this because I find such significance yet I would love a deeper interpretation if you have one. Thank you!

    Last night was the new moon, I held a fire ceremony and offered very deep big prayers to the fire that I am ready to manifest in physical form in my life now. This morning I awoke feeling this lightness. I went into the kitchen and on the middle of a clean plate that was drying was a dead fly. I put it outside onto the earth. Later I sit down to eat my breakfast on the floor in the living room and seemingly out of nowhere there was a maggot alive on the ground. The house is so clean and I have no idea how this was happening! Then I took the maggot outside and placed it on the earth near where the dead fly was. I came back inside and saw an alive fly on the wall. I am tuned in that I was just shown the complete cycle of life. And I am wondering the deeper meaning and how this applies to me right now.

    Thank you for any of your wisdom. I am always grateful to read your channeled descriptions on your site.

    Warmly,
    Kristin ❓

    • I recently experienced this same cycle of events with the fly, only in my vehicle… which I was perplexed bc my husband keeps my vehicle immaculate. I didn’t even think about the life cycle occurring right in front of me. Thank you for your comments as it has now brought awareness for me. I’ve recently had more dead flies… presented at strange moments… so that’s why I’m here… bc the flies seem to be attempting to convey a message… I was perplexed but with certain life events occurring… with this new perspective given… things make sense now 🙂

  • Maybe this is just me but excessive flies have become a bad omen in our house. They carry diseases and death- they love getting into your food while you’re trying to eat it (I have to throw things out alot because of this one). Also the coined phrase “fly on the wall” makes me feel like I could be being spied on. Is this just me?

    • I agree… to an extent… I have heard the saying “fly on the wall” but never associated flies with being spies… I do find them absolutely annoying though and do not like them near my food at all… for some reason i always think crows and spiders are the spies… just personally

    • I am currently going through a situation where I might be pregnant. I feel pregnant however the urine tests I take keep coming back negative despite. I have an appointment made now I am sitting in wait. I took a nap this morning after some errands and all I could recall from my dream was a very dramatic close up view of a single house fly flying from one room to another. No humans no food just a house fly with the world blurred around it flying from the living room to the kitchen. I wonder what that meaning is. If anyone has any theories I am open to hear them. ❓ 😐

    • Hello… This green June Bug situation… For a while.. I can be a different places.. Like DMV. Has beautiful flowers and plants. I was waiting in line. A few people are waving their hands.. For the june bugs can get out they face.. Me?? They kept on fly around my face and my hair. All the way til the DMV open. It was soo embrassing. Some were saying.. *Oh they like you…your fragrance.. Your hair.. They had me running.. All around people and chasing me.. Oh Lord.. I even tried to be still but the buzzing sound. Sends me running.. I dont do bugs well and they bugged the hell out of me… Funny.. Im asking what that means? I see them every summer. 😉

  • Every time I get in my car I either see horsefly June bugs or stink bugs on my windshield of my car in the passenger side of my door what does that mean

  • This is weird. I have a same exact fly that visited my room for 3 days in a row, even if i have chased it out of my window each day, it comes back the next day, in the exact same timing!! Heaven knows i’ll see it again tomorrow. What does this mean?

    • Also, i need to mention that this is not a common house fly. Its slightly bigger, something like a cross of a moth and a fly.

  • Horrible dream last night, a human fly (like Jeff Goldbum but short 😆 ) was chasing me trying to get me to marry him. I’m already married but it didn’t care. I managed to finally evade it and it was unmasked/reverted to human form. WTH?

  • Dear all.
    Ive been having house flies infesting in my house recently. I dunno what it means. 4 years staying in this apartment i havent seen a single house fly.but recently 3 or 4 came from nowhere. My wife made me kill them as she is disgusted with them. But i dont understand why they came. I did fail many job interviews which made me very upset and yesterday i got an email that i failed the interview again amd thats when these guys showed up.

    Please advice im new in animal spirit

  • It has been raining ALLLLLLL week. But today when everything cooled down, I’ve noticed a FLY on my windshield while I was driving. It was soooo random that I knew that God was telling me something. I am so happy!!! :mrgreen:

    • This is going to sound outlandish, but I had THE EXACT same thing happen to me just now. I usually do not frequent this website or comment on like-minded/same situational aspects of life, but this is too similar to ever be just a coincidence. See, in Colorado we had a winter storm/thunderstorm/ hailstorm just blow through here, and I was parked eating and listening to the radio when I heard the very faint, but distinguishable sound of a fly’s wings hitting my windshield. And it was such an odd occurrence that it warranted checking up the meaning of such a significant occurrence. Wow!!! I wonder what that means……

  • For the past three days now my wife and I have been experiencing influx of army of flies trouping into our bedroom. Disgusting and strange. What does this mean?

  • I follow animal totems. This is the second time a fly appeared with significance for me. The first time, I was dealing with the death of my pet rabbit. I was close to her because she really helped me through an emotionally difficult time in my life. She had died in a painful way. After I had buried her, I went out for a walk. I saw a dead animal in the road and flies were decomposing the body. As hard as that was to see, I was reminded of the impermanence of life and everything serves a purpose.

    The second time, I was wanting to let go of an attachment emotionally I had to someone. It wasn’t healthy for my mind. I wrote out a “release” and goodbye letter. I went outside to burn it. After it finished, a blue bottle fly appeared next to my embers. Sure enough, I come to read that it symbolizes change in emotions and thoughts. I felt so much lighter. Thank you for the affirmation.

  • I had a fly by my yoga mat thought class today just sitting at the top of my mat the whole time I even used it as a point of focus!

  • House fly started to follow me around. Have to say that I really hate insects. They give me the heebie jeebies.I always associate them with dirt and general uncleanliness. That being said, I really avoid killing them, to the point where I have vacuumed around a spider etc..
    This fly , follows me from room to room. It lands near me and remains there until I leave. It is cold outside, yet it hovers in the doorway when I go out. .
    It is here while I type, sitting on my printer and oddly enough, I know it will find me if I go upstairs.
    What does it want me to do?

    • I’m wondering if flies, just like butterflies, can be signs of those who passed away. At the end of they day they too change from a maggot/larvae into a flying animal, which could be seen as the soul leaving the body right. Since our son passed away I too have one fly inside the house and I found one near his grave too that caught my attention for some reason. After that I noticed this one fly inside our house. Of course I don’t know if it’s the same but it strikes me as odd because we’re almost mid december and we’ve never ever had flies in the house beoyond october, also it’s just the one. Some people associate flies with evil spirits but I doubt it. I’m quite sensitive and I don’t feel an anwanted presence here.

      • I too have a fly with me when visiting my mother in hospital…..or is it visiting her. I asked for a sign from my departed brother yesterday whilst visiting and worrying about Mum….the fly came again around her bed….. it had not been for a few weeks and it’s mid December….xxx

      • I just commented about this above… Since my dad died a few years ago, I have had the oddest experiences with flies (more than I can type here).

        It’s always been very clear to me (for so many reasons) that it was him, visiting me, in some way, even before I knew the symbolism.

  • ❗ I love this. How accurate. I know plenty of animal totems and what they mean. But This has hit home. I have been debating on, and putting off so many things lately. But the flys came and they woke me up when the sun came up and they made me clean top to bottom. I was trying to find out why so many flys in this house. Now everything I put off is done.

  • Hello, thanks for the info. The past few months, flies have been driving me bananas. I shower…haha

    I’m trying to figure out if it’s due to the drought or a message. They are always around where I Am and landing on me as I swat at them. It’s either fruit flies at work,house flies in my car or in the house, then the moisture shower fly in work bathroom or home bathroom, looking at me. It’s getting really annoying…haha

    Have you ever experienced this for a long period of time? Never had this prior.. It was usually a Hummingbird or something pretty:)

    • Exactly what I have been going thru! anything that you have tried and it worked? atleast for a day to visit friends.

  • Hello, I traveled with my wife, and when we got home today, I noticed big flies in the kitchen. Sure it was neat before we left. Pls what does this mean?

  • I enjoyed the article on flies as a totem animal. I thought at first I was in a movie with the Exorcist when I encountered this fly crawling around on both of my hands. I was at a healing session with a healer and was asking for a healing with some issues concerning my blood. I saw this fly crawling on both my hands methodically and then flew over to the healer and crawled around on both of her hands for another few minutes.
    I am like, “say what??” She just looked in amazement as well. We know the fly totem was at work and the next day—things started happening quickly in my manifesting new things.
    Wow to the fly energy is all I can say.
    Namaste..

  • One, single fly seems to have made it its mission to to follow me all over the house, CONSTANTLY buzzing about and landing on me. This morning, it had landed on the screen of an open window, and as soon as I thought to close the window it tried to fly away, but I stopped it with the curtain. I was able to get the window closed and it seemed to sit there saying, “Hey!” but I did not feel like dealing with it and resolved that I would get it safely outside later, but for now, it would (literally) be out of my hair. A couple of hours ago, I felt a wonderful energy in the room, or, my own energy, I do not know, but decided to enjoy it and meditate for 20 minutes. Isn’t it interesting I’d hardly been meditating in corpse pose before a fly was landing all over me. I thought, is there another one? I finished my meditation, all the while fly flew by my ears, landed on my mouth, my nose, my cheeks, constantly landing here, there, and everywhere, but I resolved to finish my meditation. As soon as the time was up, I immediately went to the window and sure enough that little devil had found a way out. It even landed on my hands while I’ve been typing this and is still landing on me. Now, I do shower and what not, and have been wondering, why the heck is this fly stalking me like a mosquito, and enough is enough and looked to find the meaning of fly. I am in a time of heavy duty transition and difficulty, and I’m hoping the message is that my persistence through all of this will pay off.

  • Greetings Silken,

    First I want to share with you how much I have enjoyed going to your site to read about the nature world – animals plus – readings you share!

    Silken, I am in the process of writing a second book. One of the stories in it is about the Fly.
    The other day when a Fly landed in my arm I looked up Fly to find something from your site that I wonder if I may have permission to include it in my book.

    It is the short quote about keeping your eye on the prize and having persistence to get you there.
    My stories are about helping people see and experience the nature world from a new perspective and to go into nature to experience its wonder and information it is communicating. We need to listen.

    Silken, my name is Heather Oliver. I live in Guelph, ON, Canada. I am a Holistic Practitioner and I also provide massage therapy at my Healing Arts Centre.

    Please check my website. Its focus is more about the services I provide. My company name is: Healing With Nature’s Touch.

    If you want to discuss this further with me about me having your Fly quote in my book, I look forward to connecting with you!

    Blessings and Light for All!
    Heather

  • I have quite a few really important decisions to make right now and earlier I was eating a burrito and when I took a bite, there was a dead fly in it. I have always had a strange relationship with bugs, but this made me wonder what it means besides don’t ever eat a burrito from there again. And suggestions?

  • Today when I came home from work I see bug on my door. It l I owed like a cross between a moth and a fly. After further research I found out it was a “tiger bee fly” and they kill bees. I don’t know why but I felt like it was visiting me….I wonder if the meaning is the same…

  • I’m sitting here and during the past 2-3 hours this one LONE persistent fly just flies in…lands somewhere within my vision then disappears. It just came for the second time and landed straight on my laptop screen. I was in the middle of reading a blog….so I cut to google to check this out and I’m glad I did. Thank you for the insight and confirmation that I am on my path. I resonate with the message.

    Be blessed! <3

  • About 12 years ago I heard a loud noise outside. Opening the door, I saw our largest tree covered in noisy crows. Never happened before or since. It was on my birthday. I half way thought they were spirit family coming to visit.
    Fast forward to last week. A large swarm of flies invaded my kitchen. Don’t know how they got there. No open windows/doors. Again, it was on my birthday. It had never happened before and hasn’t happened since. I sincerely hope they were not spirit family visiting again, because I killed them all. ha

  • Every time I go into my bathroom, I hear a very loud buzzing sound that sounds like a trapped fly, but I can’t find the fly. It’s been going on for two weeks so it should be dead by now. I spoke to it one day and asked it to find another way to communicate because I don’t speak fly. I was kidding. The buzzing is in a pattern if that makes any sense. It seems like it’s speaking fast words. Does this mean anything? I thought flies only meant decay. Thank you for this explanation. Flies follow me even in the winter in chicago!

  • So today after work. I enter my truck and there I see a group of flies just there inside onn. The pasanager seat and glove compartment. . I freaked out roll down the windows and let them out.. I killed like 2 .. I was so scared… none of thewindows where open. Idk how this happend.. does anyone know the meaning of this… I’m so scared…

  • HELP! 😯 Hello, I was just wondering if someone could help me figure this out . . . . . . about a week ago our house became a hang out for all of the local fruit flies! TONS OF THEM. We probably trapped 70 or 80 a day in bowls of vinegar and bananas. (I didn’t want to kill them, I’m always the one that saves bugs, flipping over beetles stranded on their backs and putting earthworms back in the grass that are cooking on the sidewalk etc.). Now, here it is a week later and NOTHING! It’s like they all vanished overnight. I read that fruit flies are mostly a symbol for survival, perseverance and adaptability so I guess what I’m asking is that they seemed to of come in large numbers to give me a BIG message and POOF 😯 they’re all gone. How should I take that? Is the fact that they all disappeared so quickly another sign of something? Thanks for your help in advance 🙂

  • Hi there, could someone please let me know if it is significant for a blue bottle to be on my back door window? It’s been there since first thing this morning and even though we have been in and out of that door today it’s no moved. It’s now pouring with rain (it isn’t sheltered) but it’s still there….ps. It’s not dead!

  • I have been seeing this fly in my dreams which alwayS bothered me for years in my life. I was scared of it, I thought it has some demonic possesion and prayed on it. but, it just would not go anywhere which was amazing me. when I didn’t know what to do until I found this article and gives me a good hope, and probabLy I will also say hallo to the fly when I see it again in my dreams. It truely makes me realize that I am really about to change my life and become a better person because I’ve had tons of ideas which could help me deal with my current situation. Thank you so much for these positive feedbacks.

  • I have had a single small fruit fly turn up in my life every where I go and now my wife has it turn up too for the last 7yrs. Just one that appears for no apparent reason. I have hopped in elevators and found it there, while I am driving it will appear on the window screen (which always amazes me as the forces while driving are extreme for a little creature), at work, while shopping, restaurants even on a mountain once (a very high mountain with snow). I was scared to tell anyone just encase it was in my head then one day I told my wife and now she gets visitations too. I do shoo them but have long since given up on catching it or killing it. It is funny to watch other people as the single fly buzzes around (which is also confirmation that others can see it). My wife has tried talking to it and asking it what it wants or what it has to say, but no answer. Sometimes it is pure white or brown but mostly black. Just one only one. We have settled in to having the visits which are daily and sometimes all day. What it means I don’t know but there are still many things in life I am still learning. 😆

    • Hello, I have a fruit fly that follows me everywhere. I believe it’s a sign of my grandpa being around. This is how he likes to present his energy.

  • The place I work at…I keep seeing dead flys and it is in the middle of winter in the midwest. Thing is I never see them flying around, just dead. I can sweep them all up, and the next day there will be more dead flys.

  • This was so helpful for me! I’ve been “bugged” by a little fruit fly for a few weeks. I’m a follower of Christ, and reading a book “Absence from Felicity”, and this little fly would come buzzing around me. I killed a few of them – clapping my hands and getting the little booger. Then there’d be another one almost immediately. I soon gave up killing,and shooshed it away…why bother killing it if another would be there? I found myself saying hello to it the other day. Told it to stay away from my face because I don’t want to inhale it.
    This morning, I was sitting in my reading spot on the couch and doing some journalling. Then I put the journal down and opened my book to read…and there again was my little fruit fly. I was happy to see it today (I live alone, have a large circle of friends and family, but live alone). I was wondering if it was an angel or messenger of sorts. It buzzed around as usual, then went away. I’ll be disappointed if I don’t see it again tomorrow! I was thinking about this little creature and it’s morning visits to me, and found this very helpful site. Thank you so much for the help!

  • Hi I am going thought a bad breakup with my husband and all I see when I think of him are Flys. Over my head. I don’t want a divorce and he does so I will persist and see where it takes me.

  • Hi from past few weeks there is only one fly at my home and it keeps following me… i have killed couple of times but still next day i see one more fly.. does this signify anythin.. plz help 😯 :mrgreen:

  • Hi! I have been “bugged” by flies, as usual(they’ve been lasting longer this year in my area) lately. It’s not been anymore than what’s normal, except I felt that they had a message for me(I still swatted them away; but now, well, I’ll try to not. ;)). So I got to wondering if flies had any symbolism. I was surprised to see they do! Thank you for this article; I’ve got my message. It rings true inside, and I’ll probably refer back until I feel the “pull” not to. The only message I could come up with before was, “Skmetimes you have to bug a person, in order to get their attention.” I got two messages above the article(I accidentally swiped back on my screen.). They were, “Keep your eye on the prize! Persistence will get you there!”; and, basically saying to remember who I am, and be true to myself. Thanks, again! <3

  • Thank you for this! I was awakened this morning by a loud buzzing in my left ear, 50 mins before I had to get up for work mind you, from dreams of flies, flies close-up, flies and her eggs, and I’m sorry but *blech*! 😉 Lol! I’m glad to know these wonderful positive things about fly, and it all rings so true for me. I’ve had my childhood and young adulthood on my mind and both were spent struggling through the nastiest conditions but I survived, and without any of that “nastiness” neither physically nor spiritually “sticking” to me. I’ve always been a staunch defender of the light. So be it. Cheers! 🙂

  • I dreamed as warm of flies (10) were flying in my house. It seemed important that I notice that but don’t know why. Any thoughts.

  • I just had a ritual house cleans performed this morning. We smudged and beat drums. Now there is a fly that is following me around everywhere I go in the house. I’m so glad I found this, it makes me feel secure that all the energy that no longer served me is gone and we opened doors for abundance.

  • For the past several days, every time I get into my car, there’s been a fly sitting on my dashboard. I would always open the window, and they’d “fly out.” Then, there were two flies. Same thing. I’ve been looking under my seats and in the trunk for food, or something else that is attracting them, but nothing. Each time my windows were completely closed so they weren’t getting in from the outside. I kept thinking, “When I get home I need to research the significance of fly, yet always forgot. Today I went, and there were a swarm (10-12) of flies in my car! I came home and came across this website! I am on the brink of tremendous abundance in my life, and this explanation of fly is so on target. I’ve come to realize that food isn’t attracting them. Rather, I am! Wow. Amazing. Thanks for the insight!!! I am grateful.

  • thanks for interpretation of the fly! He was bugging me, and only me, for 3 days then died in my coffee!! I am at a turning point in my business and made the decision to expand just the day before he appeared.. So I would say this article is 100 percent helpful to me.

  • it seems like all the other comments are spam. I think fly is overlooked because it’s seen as annoying and dirty… but I’m proud of those qualities! (insert euphemism if you so desire : )
