Butterfly dreams - these colourful creatures have a magical quality and if they appear in your dreams it will mean that a process of self healing has now begun. You will find you have new energies which will enable you to leave a difficult phase behind you.
Butterflies in myths and legends - an old Indian myth tells us that if you whisper your wish to a butterfly they will keep your secret until they fly upwards and away to find the great spirit. Your wish will then be granted.
According to Irish legend butterflies have the ability to carry the soul and cross over to the 'otherworld'. Butterflies signify creation and transformation.
