Reevaluate your thoughts about yourself. You are worth far more than you think!

Fly Meaning and Messages

Much like the Butterfly, Fly symbolism lets you know that quick and abrupt changes in your thoughts, emotions, and endeavours are afoot. Moreover, these rapid changes in all aspects of your life are happening now. Therefore, move quickly, even in unfavourable and uncomfortable conditions. Similar to the Rabbit, Fly meaning can also signify that an exponentially growing source of abundance is available for you right now. Thus this spirit animal dictates that you must use your keen eyesight to see the way. In other words, never give up.

Alternatively, the Fly symbolism could be reminding you that your persistence in reaching your goals will bear fruit sooner than later. Moreover, this will happen even if it means that you have to annoy others or be selfish for a while. In other words, you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.

Fly Totem, Spirit Animal

Like the Koi, Fly totem people can multiply their endeavours, ventures, and prosperity at enormous rates. These people are quick to act and never miss an opportunity, however remote when it presents itself. Folks with this spirit animal always have the determination and strength to get what they need as they need it. Like the Cardinal, occasionally, they will need to remind themselves that they need to balance self-importance with humility. These folks also have a knack for finding beauty and worth in strange places.

Fly Dream Interpretation

Like the Chameleon, a Fly dream often symbolizes your ability to adapt to the situations in which you now find yourself. In particular, if the insect is feasting on something sweet in your vision, it is a message of abundance and prosperity to come. If the insect is feeding on meat or carrion, it symbolizes the death and rebirth cycles in your life. Similar to the Bat, something within you has changed, and you are reborn into something new.

Alternatively, if one of these insects is red and persistently buzzing you in your dream, it is a warning. There is an unusual and unpleasant event in the works. In other words, expect the unexpected and be prepared to stay grounded while you deal with it.

  1. Ever since I had to get rid of my cat.
    I randomly still feel her climbing in bed with me like she once did.
    well, it happened again this morning
    I fell back to sleep and upon waking up I came out of body I felt her approaching. I thought my cat was trying to psychically connect with me so I didn’t freak out like I usually would coming out of body. long story short it wasn’t her at all it was a fly that flew directly in my ear and started buzzing and I couldn’t move to get it out I began to freak out as fear took over. also I’m not even sure what kind of fly it was.

  2. I just had a fly legit buzz up into my nose. It’s been attempting this feat for days whenever I try to communicate telepathically with my Twin Flame via a photograph while listening to our song – but it succeeded about 20 minutes ago (I had a very powerful/intense “meditation”/”commune” with my TF) and I can feel it at the point where the top of my nostril meets my cartilidge and it’s freaking me out hardcore. It no longer seems to feel “alive”, but I tried to blow it out and it’s lodged up there.

    In related news, I received a direct/very specific message from my best childhood friend who passed away when we were still kids yesterday morning, and my cat – who just only turned 3 – had a mini-seizure a week ago and hasn’t been able to stop walking in circles and wailing sporadically (I’ve taken her to the vet several times/have her on medication, etc…)

    I also have been enduring “triple”/3 nights in a row, 3x a night bouts of triple sleep paralysis for the first time since early childhood again. This first occured last November, and most recently last week after my cat freaked out. The last one I recall happened when I was in a semi-lucid meditative state holding a phantom quartz. I had no music on (I usually sleep and/or meditate to various binaural beats…), but I entered this meditation “organically” and was having intense visions and hearing voices. I must’ve lost control, BC the last thing I remember was a cruel, mocking girlish but grown woman’s voice cackling in my head “Do you want to go get high? Let’s go get nice and high… Hahaha…” (I’m an ex-addict) – and I “came to”, but could feel waves if vibrations/tingles running up from my feet to my scalp, as if my soul was trying to be sucked from my physicality. I knew enough not to “panic”/”fight” too aggressively. I instead remained calm and ignored her taunts (as well as the decidedly disturbing bodily sensations) and said the lord’s prayer (I’m not even Christian, but it worked in the past…) and slowly began to regain movement of my fingertips until I was “free”, but holy sh*t, that was sinister af…

    My crown chakra tingles nonstop day and night and my left ear rings off the hook, and my right ear will do so about once every other day. I also have been seeing numerical synchronicities increasingly for the past two years, but this month in particular I see “22:22”, “2:22”, “21:21″, 21:12”, “12:12”, “212” all day each time I glance at the clock, see a license plate, a receipt, a time stamps, etc… (I see other “significant” numerical frequencies, but this has been most notable).

    I feel like I’m going insane and have been in isolation since a week before COVID hit last year… I’m going through a marital separation after a decade plus and am alone for the first time in as long… I feel tired all the time, and get panic attacks that “aren’t mine” (I believe they are my TF’s – NOT my ex-husband, btw…). Sometimes I dob for no reason (again, it’s some external “catharsis”, not a depression/”mine” – but, other times, I feel so full of hope, love, and elation (which, consequently, DOES feel as though it “comes from within”/is “mine” that my heart feels as if it may burst into a galaxy of stars… Then I get a crushing low… Up and down, up and down.

    I live abroad and have no one to talk to here who “understands”. Can anyone relate or be so good as to share any insights? I’m open to any and all info – and I sincerely thank and appreciate anyone who made it through that mess of a post. I am incredibly grateful for any and all opinions or experiences, etc… Love and thanks. Blessings to all X

    1. P.S. look at the date and time of my prior post re: numerical synchronicities/”21:21″, etc plus the date!!! Us this good or bad? I’m so all over the map – please help me anyone. Thank you kindly and much love 💜

    2. Hello Violet,
      I am totally resonating with you. All these things and more are happening to me as well! Would you like to talk!?
      Kimberly 🌎🌈

    3. Dear Violet,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences. They resonated very strongly with me, from TF, to living abroad, numerical sychronicities, exploding into a galaxy of stars, ups and downs and more.
      I’ve been going through transition which has intensified over the last year and appears to be reaching some sort of climax or turning point. It’s very intense, disorientating, soul-destroying, confusing, but also liberating, with feelings of joy, elation, spontaneity and being natural. Many new things and people are coming into my life.
      I would say, stay grounded, sometimes take a break from the spiritual stuff (I know because I have a tendency to obsess about it and keep pushing to move forwards) before coming back to it. Trust and follow your intuition.

      PS I just fell asleep and woke up at 14h14 which means something to me. And I’m replying to you on 21.4.21. I never go on forums !
      In answer to your question, I’d say there is no good or bad, just information that can help you learn something and move forwards.

      I’ve worked with negative entities before, actually, and often sleep paralysis is genuinely filled with scientific explanations, more than paranormal ones, with the latter being extremely rare. From what I sense, it is best to check up on some kind of doctor, because sleep paralysis does cause all types of various hallucinations, with being an ex-addict showing that it might be more likely it has something to do with your previous history of harming your body before. So I do recommend a mainstream professional outside psychic options if you cannot find much information on this.

      A fly going up your nose might symbolically mean from the spirit animal perspective that you might be overly suspicious in a relationship. As in, “smelling something fishy,” or “smelling danger.” Since in a negative light, a fly can represent an annoyance, this might be the reason. If it is still stuck in there at this point, you might want to visit a doctor to extract it from your nose.

    5. You are not alone but… RELAX!
      Solar create the highs, great creative energy, lunar which feels like its literally kicking the crap out of us… cuz it is! Good news… There’s lots of support out there… Google “Spirit Library” for multiple sources, but more importantly, you need to relax to receive the most clear inner guidance, then TRUST that you are a powerful soul, in the throws of going home to yourself! Well done beautiful soul!!!🙏☮️

    6. You’re not crazy. You are just aware now. Aware there is more. Keep looking. Look for the things you want. The things that make you feel whole. Because you are. Anything that comes to mind which you deem to be bad, negative, “sinister”, a downer, etc, just know that it is just a program. It’s something that has been instilled in you and is not your creation. You are more than your thoughts and memories. Your brain and ego work together to serve you but you must u set stand that your brain and your ego are not you. You are much more than that. You are consciousness. You are aware of your being. You are not your body or your mind. You are. Period. Observe your thoughts. Observe your actions, Your routines, Your feelings and emotion. And observe the synchronicities. Get behind your thoughts and ask your soul about them. Get to know your soul, your higher self. The self behind the mind. The real you. Regain control of your mind and lead it. Don’t live within the thoughts. Those thoughts are only replays of past experiences. Use them and learn from them. Do not let them control you or tell you anything you don’t want to hear. The mind and the body are a tool for you to use at your disposal. Not to guide you. You can guide it. And watch all of your dreams come true. As I have. From the darkest of depression and defeat, anxiety, worry and fear, I learned that my mind was not serving me. And we switched roles. Live as one with your soul, your higher self, your spirit, God, whatever you want to call it, and use your mind. Don’t be it. Every thought is neutral. You assign a meaning to it. Whether it’s good or bad. Positive or negative. You choose with your mind how to view it. And your body responds with an emotion. Short on time so I’ll leave you with that. Hope it helps. I love you.

    7. Hi Violette
      I hope this response finds you better adjusted after over a year. There are always things that can help.
      My experience would say that the ringing, previous drug problems and intense desire to communicate with your twin flame have over stressed your throat chakra. TRUTH
      I don’t have my books with me at the time but I remember the throat is about speaking YOUR truth. Don’t allow circumstances to diminish your own experiences. Assert your power (probably why the Lord’s Prayer has worked in the past; it is not your own but is a shared thought form at the least). Your post reveals you are very sensitive about where feelings originate. Very likely you have been gaslit before. The current environment/narrative is all gaslighting and you know what I am talking about. The

  3. Hello!!! So earlier today there was a fly in my room that was acting really weird and when it flew really quickly across the room it kind of looked as if it turned into smoke(white) then when it landed it looked as if it was a fly again-the fly was also producing white smoke out of its body. The fly also continuously landed in the same spot in my room on the ceiling and if I used one of my sticks to try and get it down(thought it was stuck) it would either not move at all or climb onto the stick then onto my hand and if I shook my hand to get it off it would just stay on my hand and stare at me in the face and I felt this weird energy in my hands while it was on my hand.
    I was wondering if you could help me understand what this meant please it would mean a lot thank you!!!^-^

  4. okay this happened this morning when i was getting ready to leave for the church service, i got a call from my mom cry and saying she saw lot of big flies in the sitting room. of course it doesn’t make sense why she was crying because she saw flies but she told me the last time she saw lots of flies was in the kitchen of our old apartment 7 years ago after which my dad past away. she was crying because she believe seeing the flies again means a sign of death. this freak me out because i wasn’t at home when my dad died and i’m just getting to know the flies she saw in our kitchen 7 years ago. i watch a lot of horror movies and i know flies is not a good sign in this movie. i just need some lighten on what this means ??????????

    1. I have had a similar experience. After a loved one passed flies began appearing all throughout the year, even when it was cold. I was told by monks to look out for butter flies, flies, birds, etc in the upcoming week of the incident. As they could be a sign of a relative visiting. To this day I still see flies occasionally, always in the same area. I would take it as a sign that someone from your past is visiting you.

  5. I too, where ever i go, there always a bunch, a few, or at least one fly flying near me. No mattet how often i clean myself and my surrounding they always came. I kept having bad feeling about it. Help me

    1. EspionageCookie

      There might just be a scientific explanation for this, even as a psychic myself. Flies are more attracted to sweat, so you might be exposing yourself to too much heat or exercise, with very little liquids to drink.

  6. I have currently six flies trapped inside my window. I’ve never seen that many, so I googled the spiritual meaning of flies cause why not. This post actually makes a lot of sense to me, during these hard times in my personal life and in the world. So thank you, I wasn’t sure what to think earlier, and I know everyone has their own meanings to these things, but this just hit very close to home.

  7. Hi many of you are very spiritual. You experience the power of the God of the Universe. He is all love, infinitely loving, so very gentle, but also a tumult of power which we see in the universe and He is deliverer of justice to those who walk in His ways.

    Seek Him in mediation. When you let the unsullied world of matter that we live in, penetrate your being, and feel the vibration of the spirit, you are experiencing God. This can grow and become a powerful energy which can only be used for good. You can speak to God and hear. You can have a wonderful relationship with God too so that you can be perfected and rest in heaven forever with Him. There is also evil in the world, and in the supernatural. So you must learn to discern. This can only be done by being one with our God who is spirit.

    I will tell you, kundalini yoga will lead you to Him. But He wants you to all know a His name. His name is I Am, the one who was, who is and is to come. The people of Israel called Him, YHVH, also called Yahweh in Greek translation. He came in the spirit of redemption, in the flesh, to bring people through the veil, to know Him.

    He is most holy and He asked us to purify ourselves to be worthy of a united relationship with God. This is done through Yeshua. His name in Greek became Jesus, He is real, all loving and will guide us through the process of purification and perfection of our soul. To help us withstand all evil. Following the chakras is the path to spiritual and emotional health. This is exactly what Yeshua would work though with us as spiritual guide.

    When you are filled with the very holy spiritual essence of God it is complete ecstasy. Nothing compares to the resonance of pure unadulterated love pouring through your being. You will realize it was always meant to be this way, our bodies were designed to flow it’s the spirit of God. He gives us free will, to accept Him.

    Then, with this profound change you will feel complete in the world. Know your divine purpose. You will not fear anything. You will feel Gods gentle touch on your life as He brings you on your life journey, resting by gentle waters, shading you from the hottest sun, softly wiping any tears from your eyes and telling you, I forgive you and remember this no more. He asks us to not look back on anything in our life that was, and to look forward and step into our divine purpose. He tells us to not be proud of to feel unloved. He repairs our soul of all hurt. For what He has in mind for us is bigger than anything we could ever imagine.

    Then you will understand, that we are the clay the Potter has formed and put his spark of light into. He gives us the choice to chose Him, goodness and love, or to chose evil, the flesh of man. When you chose Him, you will understand that our body was designed to hold a His spirit. We are complete.

    You must seek Him with your heart and soul. Ask to know Him. Talk to Him about your life and how you wish it could be different. How you must fill the space in your soul that is empty with love. Then ask to meet His spirit of redemption, yeshua. He will set you free.

    This is not a religion. This is Revelation. This is divine purpose. This is a revolution of the spirit world for you. Then you will feel complete and at peace.

    May the holy and loving spirit of the universe bless all of you!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing, would love to learn more if you would mind directing me to learning more of what you shared.

  8. Today has been a strange day altogether, chunks of time vanished with no idea why- I went to put my bed tidy, and under the pillow where I’d been sitting was a large fat furry black spider whose body was about an inch long big enough for me to see it’s eyes looking at me it wouldnt run away just sheltered itself and stared at me till I evicted it from the bed- now I have been pestered by a greenbottle fly again it is landing on me, and literally just staring at me it wouldn’t fly off it’s coming back and walking towards and staring at me I don’t kill them but I don’t know what they are trying to tell me either

    1. From what I see in my life – bugs are pointing at our problems, bad events, frustrations, anger, phobias – and so on. But sometimes it is just about thinking about them and paying too much attention. They can “bug” you if you lack of self-confidence and you are afraid that they will do it again. Which in such case is probably helping you facing your fears to overcome them. If you are a person of strong symbolism they might be some specific message for you. Try to take your own interpretation and think strongly about it when you face them. If it will be wrong they will somehow point at it – and you can try another interpretation.

    2. I know you mean well, but I’m very put off by you calling the Absolute/Universal Conciousness “he” and “god”. The Universe is a conscious force of balance, Yin and Yang, Shiva and Shakti, masculine and feminine. Please remember this. Namaste

  9. I have scoured the internet for an answer. And even here I haven’t found it. I was sitting in my van today waiting for my partner to return from inside the store. I look out the window and there on the window staring into my soul is the biggest (1inch) blackest fly I have ever seen in my life. Turns out it’s called the mourning fly, or simply monster black horse fly. I have never seen one before. The size and darkness of this thing alone was absolutely terrifying not to mention the huge mandiables it had! I hope that it still has a positive meaning. But my gut tells me it was some sort of warning or bad omen. Anyone have any idea? Am I just freaking myself out for nothing? Please respond! Thank you

    1. I have always understood black flys to be a very negative omen, however, if the fly was not dead or acting aggressive the above meaning may apply. I always pay attention not only to the animal but also their behaviour. Except spiders. Everyone will tell you they are good luck, for me they are always a negative omen.

    2. So after doing a little research on the fly I also remember that you wrote it was a “horse” fly. Put two and two together and I get this. The fly is a small insect a “small” problem. In this case it was a big fly, so it could mean a big problem. Also the fly is very persistent and can move quickly and quietly but again, in your case the fly that you had seen was a big fly. Unordinarily big. The fly keeps to itself and goes almost unnoticed by anyone or anything sometimes until you really start to look for it but sometimes it could be right in front of your face. Now the horse. A horse represents freedom of movement. It represents power and strength and is also not held down when it comes to being wild and adventurous. Now put two and two together and this is what I have come up with. Someone or something is stopping you from being free and continuing to move past a certain point in your life. Now this was no ordinary house fly so I believe it’s safe to assume that this is no small thing like a paper cut or something to that effect but rather because of the dark color of the fly and the size of it, maybe something along the lines of debt, or maybe something in the body that is being effected causing you not to move about freely or even someone you know could be holding you back from not moving forward in life to be able to do what you wanna do like travel here or move there. Whatever the issue is, just like a fly consistent on “bugging” you, you have to break free from whatever it is and run to which ever path that makes you happy and never stop running. Be free and love life. Very big things could happen sometimes even if it’s learned from the smallest of lessons. Don’t hold back, do what you love and keep doing it. Don’t let whatever it is hold you back and keep you from being free and happy.

    3. Sometimes back when I wasn’t having peace and happiness… I started to see black small flies everywhere then I could tell in my mind what they meant when they buzzed around me in an annoying way.. They don’t get to stop until you notice what they want you to know… Immediately when I noticed the message they could then leave me alone…. After some long time I stopped seeing them…
      And now there back… This time I don’t seem to pick clear information anymore. But they come around me for three days then leave without seeing them for awhile like that… They come in and out of my life… Please help me understand why they do come

    4. I have been feeling fly with me every where since 2010 i think it could be black magic .help plz if you can understand

    5. I believe Source/God/higher self speaks to us thru many different modalities: numbers, animals, “coincidences” which I prefer to call synchronicities. But look up what the metaphor for flies means, seek it out and the message will be shown to you. Trust your inner voice, meditate on this and you will figure it out. Your higher self is always wanting you to remember who u truly are. Do u pray? I know this isn’t the answer you were probably looking for, but in a nutshell keep searching and don’t give up!! Many blessings my friend. We all have our own journeys to walk and asking for help/clarity are tools yo help us in our journey.:)

  10. A tiny fly landed on my IPad today. I kept very still, not wanting to disturb it. It turned its head to face me and then crawled down my screen and flew away after landing on me a few more times. What does this mean!?

    1. For the past 3 months, a fly (or many different ones) has been coming into my room and waking me up every morning. It’s very weird because I guide it outside through my window and watch it fly away every morning, but then it comes back the next morning. At first, I found it annoying but now I can’t rub off the feeling that it’s meant to mean something, or it’s trying to tell me something. Does anyone have any suggestions? For the past year, I have been waking up with a very negative state of mind, as I have been unemployed and still am very confused about what route to take in life.

    2. Personally I’m able to visualize story and dream easily and don’t ever read comments, I just continued down the page but, before I was able to finish reading your comment I has able to see your setting. I was following at a fly flying in a latitudinal “S” shape away from me, flying pass grass and shade. Not much but it’s definitely what I saw, anyways the most helpful thing to take away if this is get out and just explore a bit, I’m not talking the world or even near you. Somewhere you know is safe and simply walk around, the fly hinting at you explore and even with your attempts to rid it it came back which some shows it’s something meant for you. And yes the fly knew the risk everytime but, I had to while it was still alive. Ultimately it comes down to mindset but, one things for sure is that the world is actually a really nice place. Have no fear and live bro, well except in G-D of course.

    3. Hey man,

      Having these experiences now for the past week. I have one sometimes 3 flies that come into my room. I let it out and watch it fly out the window. Late that day I come back and there it is in my room flying around. But it doesn’t look in distress and is quite calm. Sometimes even landing on me or letting me touch it. I am going to meditate and let any messages come to me as I believe it to be more than just a random event. These flies could be our spirit animals and maybe sent to tell us something, we just need to connect to this maybe.

  11. The last month and a half I’ve noticed this very small fruit fly that’s been hanging around my house. If I’m just sitting on the couch sometimes I will see it fly by my face. If I move to the bedroom the fruit fly will follow me there, to the bathroom, and so on. It is just the one fruit fly, not multiples, and my roommates see it too. Sometimes it flies by when I’m overthinking something or making a decision on something of importance. This could just be in my head though. I’m not very sure what a fruit fly represents.

    1. Same thing has been happening for last week just 1! Did you ever figure out if there was some meaning to it?

  12. I found this thread through google…after many years of searching such phrases as “human manifestation of flies”, “Humans that manifest flies”, etc.

    In other words…I manifest flies. It can be the coldest part of winter and i hear a little buzz sound near my head and feel a slight “movement” and then there is a fly. No, i am not dirty and bathe regularly. Sometimes, they appear on my arm. I have also had other things seemingly manifest from my body. And yes, other people can see these flies…so its not a waking hallucination.

    I have had many (and witnessed many) “strange” events in my 40 years of life, that for me…nothong seems strange.

    Anyhow, I am not interested in christian nonesense pertaining to the flies…i am looking for an occult/alchemy type of explination as those are more true than outdated fables of demons and angels.

    Thank you.

    1. There are christian mysticisms that overlap with alchemy and alchemist concepts that have derived from christian,jewish(kabala) and muslim(sufi) concepts. Just so u know not all christian theology is bastardized american bullshit and to try n keep a open mind assess case by case instead of dismiss anything christian related

  13. flies have been following me everywhere I go keep buzzing around my head and sometimes my legs. have tried to stop them but they keep coming. I sometimes become annoying and frustrated thinking God doesn’t like me. to Me it seems it’s shameful to be seen by others when they notice flies have been following you everyday. sometimes it makes me feel like ending my life have been seeing pastors for deliverance but still. Even a certain pastor told me they kept shit on my head in the spiritual realm. have been praying and asking good why me but nothing is happening. been seeing them in my dreams too. a Day will not come without them following me as if they see me to to be like them. I’m not happy in life, can’t go out in the afternoon cos they wouldn’t stop following me like as if I have done it on myself. I’m tired and need help

    1. Please know that you are in certainty unconditionally Loved by God, Almighty in Love for each of his creations, all of us inherently blessed. I have a prayer that is very helpful to me when I feel in need of Self-Love and Self-Kindness. You are so worthy and good, beautiful sister, and may this prayer encourage you and strengthen you to know that you are perfect as you are: I am the soul and servant God, All- Beautiful intended me to be. I am of His Light, of His Way, destined for the Ever-Goodness which He has destined me for from the beginning. I am worthy of His Love, of which He Gives Freely, Unabashedly, and Eternally. He is with me throughout my earthly journey, Guiding me to value the incomparable Gift which is my Life, Guiding me to know my worth, my resilience, and all the ways in which I honor Him. I honor Him by loving myself always. Glory to God and Grace Be Upon Us All. Amen.
      Please also know, sister, that God is always with you and that He loves you dearly. You are loved. With Love Always,
      Your sister and Friend,

    2. Hey why don’t you try something scented like vanilla. It can be used as a bug repellent..and smells good.. hopefully it can help ..

    3. There is no shame on you for this, there is only shame on anyone judging you about it. God loves everyone no exceptions remember that ok. I have no advice to offer about the flies problem but according to this website there saying it related to a theme of persistence. Like the following commenter said dont give up . Maybe try contacting an entomologist (bug scientist) for advice check at a university near you or email a department of entomology. Good luck
