Ladybugs - What Do They Mean When You See Them

After my mother died, each of my two sisters and I saw a multitude of ladybugs in our houses around the same time.  Since it was in the middle of winter, that was quite an odd and unusual coincidence.  We all felt that the ladybug must hold a message for us.  Below is the information which I gathered and share with my sisters.

The ladybug is a member of the beetle family. They are found in nearly all climates. They are hemispheric in shape, have short legs and are usually bright colored with black, yellow or reddish markings. The females lay eggs.

Their life cycle requires about four weeks, so several generations are produced each summer.  This cycle ties the ladybug to the energies of renewal and regeneration. Those who may have this totem are usually family oriented with strong morals and social values.

The name lady bug finds its origins in the middle ages when this beetle was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and called the "beetle of our lady."  This name links the ladybug to spiritual ideals and religious devotion. It also holds a link to mothers. 

Past lives associated with religion or the church are common for those with this animal totem and some form of daily meditation or prayer is recommended.

This tiny little beetle brings with it a powerful message. Because the life cycle of the adult ladybug is short it teaches us how to release worries and enjoy our lives to the fullest.  When it appears in our life it is telling us to "let go and let God."

An adult ladybug can consume several thousand aphids and other scale insects within a few months. Since aphids & other insects can be harmful to crop production, farmers and growers have long considered the ladybug a good omen. Because of its diet, the ladybug often has parasites and people with this animal totem need to take care of their digestive system.

The ladybug is also one of the few beetles that are well liked by humans. Unlike other beetles, the ladybug brings a feeling of joy to us. Its small size signifies a delicate and loving nature. It portrays the energy of harmlessness and can show us how to stop self harm.

The shell on its back protects it from predators. Its wings fold against the body serving to protect its soft underside. Ladybugs have sharp instincts and feel vibrations through their legs. This allows them to sense energy of whatever they touch and is another form of protection. In spite of the ladybug's size, it appears to be fearless. 

Seen often as a messenger of promise, the ladybug reconnects us with the joy of living. Fear and joy can not co-exist. We need to release our fears and return to love  - this is one of the messages that the ladybug brings to us.

Ladybug teaches us how to restore our trust and faith in the great spirit.   When the ladybug appears, it is telling us to get out of our own way and allow the great spirit to enter into our lives.

I am reading these stories and wanted to share mine. I had a miscarriage and the surgery happened yesterday to spontaneously abort my unborn baby. I truly believe my baby came to me through a ladybug last week when my husband and I were first told that they couldn't find a heartbeat. At 10 weeks pregnant, confused and worried and in the middle of the winter, that ladybug was in my bedroom flying above me before landing directly above me. I was told the following day, that my baby did indeed miscarry. I am holding on to the thought that that ladybug was my baby coming to comfort me and to say goodbye. I let the ladybug just hang out there that night and haven't seen it since. 🐞👼🏼

Dear @MCreed81416 ,
I just wanted to let you know, you arent the only with the same experience. I lost my first baby to miscarriage three months ago. The first week was the toughest in my entire life. I couldnt sleep at night till my eyes were swollen from crying. I broke down so easily. My life was a horrible nightmare. I couldn't believe how losing someone you haven't even met could hurt you deep in your core.
5 days after I lost my angel, I was in bed crying myself to sleep once again. In the darkness and dispair, my watery eyes caught sight of a tiny little light moving towards me in the air. I honestly freaked out at first. I never thought of a ladybug as we hardly have those around our house. As it was flying towards me I held my breath. It came a landed right on my pillow beside my head. It wasnt until I put out my fingers that I realized it was a ladybug. I tried swatting it away from my pillow few inches away from my tear-stained face, but no.....this glowing bug always resolutely flew back to land right beside my face. I gave up and just lay there in the dark watching this little thing glow so beautifully. A few mins on the bug still staying close by it finally dawned on me...that maybe, just maybe it could be my little angel telling me she was okay and hat she'll forever be with me. Comforting in my darkest hour.

To this day I have never seen a ladybug again in my room at night. I firmly believe, that little glowing bug was my little angel reminding me to be strong.

Reading your story only confirms this and makes me oh so much better just to know that our angels do come visit us again.

My mom passed away in March 2014 and when I flew home to Texas and got my truck windshield was covered in ladybugs. My Mom loved ladybugs and even used it as a screen name online. This morning I walked outside to my car and there was a gold ladybug on my windshield and it had gold eyes I walked up to it and it let me touch it and I got in my car to drive and it stayed on my windshield until I got to my business then I watched it crawl up my windshield and disappear. I know it was my mom giving me a sign and everything is OK

On the 19th two people close to me were murdered by someone we all knew in a domestic violence incident. Today my fiancee and I started our relationship separation and yesterday I wasn't invited to my family thanksgiving. Life is heavy to say the least. But right now I have a swarm of ladybugs in my room that came in through small holes in my screens. I know my dearly loved friendv who left us tov soon sent them to me. I feel so at peace at this moment.

I needed to read this. My dad passed away from cancer in July 2015. Since then, I've been visited by two ladybugs on different occasions and I truly believe it's my dad letting me know that he's watching over me. Although I am normally unnerved by bugs, I found myself at peace both times and even held the ladybugs in the palm of my hand. I miss my dad so much, but I know our bond is everlasting and he is always with me. I will always be my father's son.

Thank you for this! Two years ago today my 8 month old granddaughter passed away. This morning I woke up and found ladybugs on my night stand.

Last month, whilst comforting a family member after his grandmother died. I told him that when another family member died we kept seeing butterflies in amazingly coincidental and synchronistic ways. And that my wish was for him to see an insect repeatedly too, to remind him that his grandmother is still with him. He told me that at the eulogy he said he lost not one but 3 loved ones. When people asked him why, he said that she was his grandmother, mother (as she raised him) and best friend.

Shortly after, 1 ladybug landed on my leg, then it went to him, then 2 more on the table. By the end of our conversation all 3 ladybugs had walked over and around the edge of a table, they then settled on the edge right next to his arm. There were no others ladybugs around around at the time. He sat there a little bemused, a little uncomfortable and in silence. I hope in someway it helps to comfort him and that soon he will report seeing them too, and in groups of 3 just to be sure its her.

I love this and can completely relate. I also have two sister and our Mom died almost 6 years ago now. I first saw a ladybug land on my favorite picture of my Mom holding me when I was a baby next to the Golden Gate Bridge (I now live in San Francisco). I saw the ladybug in my house and immediately felt her presence and started crying because I knew she was there. Since then I have had ladybugs land on me at times when I'm thinking of my Mom or in need of support and reassurance. Thank you for posting this, it means a lot.

I've recently had a near death experience and have been experiencing some confusing spiritual things. It's been frustrating and a bit depressing knowing I have a purpose but don't understand what it is. I pray every night and ask for guidance. Yesterday when I went to lie down there was a lady bug in my spot! This has been the snowiest winter in history. I needed to find out if it meant anything and I thank you for all this info. I guess I'll know my purpose when the Divine Angel is ready.

There have been 2 people in my family that have passed away within the past month. Both were not immediate family but one I have something they used to own and got it about 2 - 3 weeks ago. Those past few weeks I have had a ladybug in my flat which is so cold most of the time. I have however been amazingly stressed out and worried about all kinds of stuff. . . What does this mean?

Ohh and it is the middle of winter

Wow thanks for sharing that was so inspiring and so right on time for me. I love ladybugs and GOD 🐞

Tonight happens to be the eve of the third anniversary of my mothers passing.
It is also the middle of winter where I live in michigan.
There is a lady bug flying around my living room!!
Maybe there is something to this???

My mom and dad passed away last year within a month of each other. This Christmas, even though I am in the second year of grieving, was extremely difficult. I talk to them and share that this is so hard. I have been crying almost everyday when I'm alone. Tonight when I went to change my sheets, I found a 'ladybug' in my bed but not alive. I knew it had to mean something. This writing piece on the ladybug brought much comfort. I know my mom is telling me she is with me and will help me with my new start without them. To find a ladybug in January - and I think one of the first I have ever seen in my house - is definitely a sign. My mom was a devout Catholic and we believe in the Blessed Mother, whose birthday is tomorrow. Thank you for taking the time to share the above information on the ladybug.

My mother passed away suddenly 2 months ago. The past few weeks I have found a bunch of ladybugs in my house. I know this is her way of telling me she is ok.

Add a response...

My grandmother passed two weeks ago and at the cemetery burial service there was a ladybug on my seat. A few days later I came home to fine at least 10 lady bugs on the front of my home. This past Thursday was thanksgiving and there was a lady bug inside on the window right next to our table while we were eating. Let go and Let God is exactly the message she would want to send us right now. Thank you for this.

I had several ladybugs around me and still do. i When never have thought that ladybugs was such a good sign of spirit or any type of spiritual activitie.. thank u :)


My relative died just recently. When I was doing Falun Dafa exercises today, a beige ladybug sat on my chest. I felt an urge to open my eyes and saw it. We don't have ladybugs in our region and I've never seen a beige one before. I did a search and found your article. I shared it with my relatives, because it may bring peace to those of them who are mourning. Thank you for sharing. Dharia (Israel)

My grandmother's doctor said she had two weeks to live its my dads mother and i dont live with my dad but it seems weird everytime iget onto the shower the ladybug appears ive asked my mom and sister have they seen it and they said no keeping in mind that me and my sis don't have the same dad and i was devastated when I found out. Hmmm let go and let god

My mother passed away on March 25. We spent her last hours praying with her and by her side telling her we love her and hearing her response that she, "loved us more" until she took her last breath. She left us in peace and so much love. My mom was one to pray for signs and growing up I found myself doing the same. I prayed for a sign to let us know that she was ok and that she was in Good Hands and that we would be ok also. I asked if she really knew how much we loved her and that when I talk to her if she can hear me. About a week ago I found this beige colored lady bug with black spots inside of my car. The first thing I wondered was how did it get here...I normally talk to my mom when I am alone in my car to and from work. I started noticing when I would talk to my mom...this ladybug would decide to come out from wherever it was hiding in my car and show itself. Today I asked my mom if she was ok and if we would be ok and that she would want me to rely on our faith for strength and guidance. I have to say that the little ladybug flew out onto my dashboard to be seen as clear as day. Just the noted symbolism for what a ladybug is very comforting. I take my little ladybug in my car to be sent from above!

My oldest son has returned home to meet our creator he was 25 and his birthday is coming up next week. We laid him to rest 4/12/14; so its been difficult to live..but tonite at 10:30pm while working my other job a light beige with black dots lady bug crawled on the board right in front of reading this has made my heart lighter..thank you

Ok so I've just moved into a new home with my 19 month old daughter after me an her father have decided to have a trial seperation. Woke up this morning our second morning to find not one or two but eleven ladybugs around my window in the living room. Not gonna lie was a lil freaked out to see so many but not as freaked out as if it was spiders or any other bug. I thought I'd look it up as I've never seen that many in one go. Can anyone tell me if it means anything? X

I like to believe that ladybugs are a sign of "luck" or "favor" and even a "comforting sign from above". I have been out of work for five months and have been preparing myself for the next level in my career through prayer, bible study and other research....truly walking by faith. Well, yesterday I had my third and final interview with a potential employer. We've had two telephone interviews and yesterday we met face-to-face for the final interview. Just as the interviewer and I had sat down to begin the interview, two ladybugs appeared on the desk in front of us. We chuckled at the oddness of the ladybugs in the office...but I knew in an instant that it was my "sign" that God was in control of my interview and I felt an immediate peace.

My father was admitted into the ICU on the 13th of this month and I noticed several lady bugs in his room..after the 4th day I asked some of the nurses to check the other rooms to see if there were any in other rooms..there were not. I looked up the significance on the 17th and he passed on the 18th. They were such a positive energy in a not so positive time..

Today as I was working on a huge sign for this annual art show lady bugs kept falling on me from the ceiling lights and piling up around me and the borders of this sign. I have been extremely stressed and haven't been praying every day ans thanking god on a daily basis I've been so stressed. This has definitely a wake up sign, and a good foreshadowing of what's to come soon for me. Thank you.

And it's in the dead of winter and freezing ..!

Ladybugs are what I am seeing since my son passed away last May. I found one in my bedroom 2 weeks ago and it was 20 degrees outside. Several times one flew on my shirt when I had a crack in my window on my vehicle. It's definitely my sign from above.

Praise God I've had about 100 ladybugs in my hallway all winter long and none have died they continue to grow. I can sense the greatness that come from them they are our protecters thank u Jesus. ;)

My cat Cleo took his well deserved rest this past week. After 18 great years I couldn't ask for more. I walked past his water dish and scooped a ladybug out. I googled the meaning of a ladybug in my cats water and it lead me here.

The weather got colder and my bedroom became infested with ladybugs. I don't believe in God and don't feel this is a sign, too many of them

No worries... None of us did until we invited Him into our lives. Just try Him for forty days and see if your life improves tremendously! What do you have to loose? Just 40 days... Try Him and see what happens. I don't believe you will be disappointed. Have a great day friend! [Romans 10:9]

Thank you for the information it is truly a blessing.

I have had no one pass away yet my home has been loaded with ladybugs for weeks now. I have been on an emotional roller coaster lately

Thanks. I saw a ladybug this winter morning and was wondering what it meant. Sounds accurate. Let go and let go. I was preparing to fight.

My husband passed away unexpectedly and suddenly last December. He has been sending us ladybugs ever since!

I had a dream with a ladybug and it was weird because my dad was really sick and his day was just coming close so the dream was about a ladybug. that I was looking for a parking and next to the passenger seat there was a ladybug and was telling me to stop going in circles so I told the ladybug to shut up and the ladybug did so I finely found a parking and I was telling the ladybug I found a parking so when I go to garb my bag and look inside the ladybug trend weight so a couple days my dad passed on 9-28-2013 RIP DAD the ladybug was giving me a messaged to let go AND I DID and my dad is free of pain and in piece and a lady buy has a way in my heart I will never for get that special ladybug

Wow as I was at the bus stop one pitched on my chest and wouldn't fly off. Now I know why.

I have now seen two ladybugs in my home- one last night, one tonight. So good to know they are good luck!

today is my mothers birthday out of nowhere hundreds of ladybugs are crawling all over my downstairs screens. Can't believe it! is there a message here?

My cat snowwhite has disappeared since 4 days now. You may find this ridiculous, but she was like a sister to me. Today I come home from school and find plenty of ladybugs. I have searched for her and cried and I have made prayers to know whether shes okay or not. I guess this is a message.

Wow very inspiring. I was just laying here in my bed with weight of the world on my shoulders. All of a sudden I look down and this ladybug is crawling on my arm. Let go and let God is really sitting with me. I've been over stressed about everything and its nice to know that God has ways of sending us messages

Two days after my brother past away, I was sitting in the dining room when I saw something from the corner of my eye looking at me. It was a white ladybug. Before that night I never knew they existed. I'm happy to know its significance.

This was a very helpful and enlightening article. It really did fill me with hope. I have family issue and money problems that seem like they will never end. But recently my bedroom is filled with ladybugs. I am 3 stories up and live in a cement jungle so I really can't imagine where they are coming from. In the morning when I wake up, they are on the bed framing my silhouette. Reading the article makes me fill optimist that there will be a positive outcome to this situation and that I need not worry or be mad about the current situation.

To noonehereeurope You really wish you had an American passport don't you?! You are a HYPOCRITE and a LOSER. Stay on your own country's websites thanks. Don't be a HATER.

<p>It's all just an America heresy!! You don't even have any history so go look into someone else's culture and learn with silence.</p>

OMG!! I never knew this about ladybugs. The day of my 16 year old sons funeral i saw a whole bunch of ladybugs. I thought to myself that it must be a sign. Sure enough it was. Everytime i see.a ladybug i tell my family that my son visited me that day. I thought this was something i conjured up in my own head. It is apparently true.

Let go and Let God

When I was pregnant with my son we had just moved into our own apartment in october. My family had moved out of state to be with my grandfather who was dying from cancer. When we moved in I found a lady bug. Over then next several months we had lady bugs appear on holidays and whenever we needed a little cheering up. When i went into labor in January this was no exception. when my bf brought in my bags from the car a lady bag had hitched a ride to my son's birth. When we brought home our son a ladybug had been waiting on his bassinet for his arrival. This whole time I was pregnant my grandfather had been battlign cancer and it was winning. We took a trip in February so he could meet his great grandson. my mom saw somewhere that ladybugs can be a sign of rebirth. I feel strongly that these ladybugs were a sign for my grandfather and my son. We lost my grandfather While we were visiting him that month. his last wish had been to meet his great grandson and so he did. Winter came and we didnt see any ladybugs, but just last weekend we took our son to the zoo and while we were on the shuttle bus back to our car a ladybug came out of no where and landed on the window next to us. I feel this was a sign from my grandpa that he was watching over his grandbaby and I. I have never felt like I had anything like a gardian angel till these ladybugs showed up. Everytime I see one now I am very overjoyed.

My daughter was born a stillborn April 3 2013 and her nickname is Ladybug. We see them all the time now and I cry tears of joy and sometimes sorrow but I know that its just her spirit making her presence known and letting us know that everything will be okay.

My daughter was stillborn on March 25, 2008 and Ladybug were the theme we had set up in her nursery. Since she passed away, I have ladybugs land on me constantly, my husband does too at work as he works outside alot. They are a symbol of joy for us and we take it as a sign from her that she is thinking of us. We were blessed with another precious little girl 18 months later and then 2 years after that had our son. Both of the kids have ladybugs land on them all the time. Truly a sign from our angels. God bless you SereneAngel4313, i'm truly sorry for your loss and sorry another Mommy has to endure this nightmare.
Hugs and prayers to you.

Wow. My mom past away in December and I have been seeing lady bugs everywhere. Tonight there was one on the ceiling of my bathroom and its been raining today so I put it in a little cup with some salad and leave until tomorrow to release it lol. And reading this seriously gives me understanding why I have been seeing them. Losing my mother definitely made me lose my self spiritually and emotionally. I guess this gives me a boost to let go and move on.

I have been wanting a ladybug tattoo for quite sometime now.By reading the real meanings,it all adds up and makes sense!

I lost my dog of 16 years last week and on the ceiling in the waiting room of the vet clinic was a lady bug. It reminded me that I had seen many this year. I took the lady bug home with me and left it on my dogs grave that night after reading your wonderful blog. Thank you. I believe it is the angel that took my dog to heaven.

March 28, 2013: Day of my mother's passing, was also her birthday.
All of these events happened before I was actually made aware of my mother's passing. Early that morning I spotted one lone ladybug on a bush, at lunch time that day I was driving home to eat and I drove through a cloud of ladybugs. At 5:00, when leaving work, I spotted one lone ladybug inside my car, that was, literally, minues before I got the call that my mom had passed away. I had never heard about the association between ladybugs and death. Now when I see one, I know it is my mom's way of telling me, "it is ok. I am at peace and am dancing with the angels"

This is very helpful.. our family dog Buster died a week ago and my mom is absolutely heartbroken.. she had me look things up about ladybugs because ever since we lost our dog, her room has been completely covered with lady bugs.. we never got to say bye or tht it will be okay to buster before he was gone.. this makes me think that he is telling those exact words to my mom with the ladybugs.. thank you so much..

Wow! I have been finding ladybugs all over my house since my Mom passed away. Thank you so much for this article :)

My brother passed away in December of 2012, and all of a sudden I have been seeing ladybugs like crazy but they seem to be attracted to my mom. We go to the cemetery and I will gently take them of her back and hair. When my little nephew was being born, I found one that looked like she sat on, still alive as we arrived at the hospital. Even this moring I went to my brothers room (where he had passed) and saw a ladybug crawing on the window form the inside. I went to get a piece of paper to bring it outside, but when I got back it was gone. I have never seen as many ladybugs as I have since my brother passed. I figured I would look up to see if there was any significance to it or if it is a (just so happen) situation. Anyway, thanks for the research :)

My loving father died 3 years ago March 11th. I came to visit his gravesite, with a heavy burden on my heart as my 18 yr old daughter, his only grandchild, will soon be getting a kidney transplant. A long time coming.
So much worry and stress as I pray to be her donor. Dad loved her more than life.
Just as I sat down by his headstone, a lady bug landed on my hand. Then two more showed up, then another.
It's Dad's way of giving us his loving bear hug that we so terribly miss:(!! I love you dad!! <3

out of the blue i look down and i see one single ladybug so awesome thank you Lord Jesus for every blessing you have given me in my life.

My brother is currently confined at the hospital in Sacramento, CA with critical condition due to brain cancer. On the hallway outside my brother's room, his daughter noticed a school of ladybugs on the floor probably 30+, 1 was red and the rest were orange. What an amazement! Get well my brother, follow your path, wherever your heart and faith takes you.

I woke up early in thegmorning to the feeling of something crawling on my pinkie finger. this was 3 days after a 3ft blizzard. thinkinh it was a spider i slowly opened my eyes and there it was a beautiful lady bug, it touched me cuz i knew there was a message behind it. although i cant quite fugure it out,,i knew it was a good sign! any thoughts?

I happened to loo I happened to look it up because a ladybug just landed on my head I want to learn more about the significance of a ladybug I'm a true believer o I'm a true believer of major and how God is attached to and how God is attached to it may be at may be at peace and and spread the love of God all around Robert Harley

I just randomly saw a lady bug in my room. I live in a dorm room on the 4th floor and the fact that There was not only a bug but a lady but in my room made me question what does this mean? I immediately googled and this came up. I have been going through such spiritual growth lately it's crazy to see this! Thank you

Thank u so much. My mom died a few months ago. Found a ladybug in my bathroom. Thought i should release it but it was too cold so i brought it back in. Heard they were a sign of fortunate times. After thia ladybug was wet then cold then gone. Found her again in the bathtub today. And now its by my side here. Right next to me. I think its my mom saying relax its all going to be good. My karmas very clear these days. I am very fortunate. And thankful. Thank u so much. I believe. Xxxooo

Wow !!! I've heard that lady bugs give luck and lately I've been seeing them but only in my room... I did not kill any I simply picked it up with a paper towel and put in the the trash... Hoping that it would live on but just not in my bed room ... I know that I have personally put almost 5 in the trash and they seem to still pop up... Usually when I see things in repeat it gives me the funny feeling. Jan 21 2012 my Momz passed away. This month this year on the 21st made a year.. Thank you for This great insight of the Lady Bug!!!!! Appreciation from me to you !! BR, LaKey-

Thank you so much! I was looking for some folklore on the ladybug, and found just what I needed here. I'm grateful!

To a scientist, this is very strange, they are in my room, all around me (and not in the rest of my home), they seem to want to be close to me, gentle, not afraid, they climb on my fingers, they are on my nitestand, my cat watches them when normally she would make fast work of them, they actually crawl up the side of my bathtub and even watch me take a bubble bath. I am fascinated with them, your article has been very helpful as I am overtaken with curiosity. Thank you.

I was really worried about the future with me & my husband. I've been seeing tons of lady bugs lately. I wondered are they supposed to be out this time of year because it's very cold? After I did research and found this posting I am very glad to hear about what the meaning of a lady bug brings to me. I appreciate your beautiful posting. Someone in San Antonio, Tx. :)

About 5 years ago after my father died, I started seeing lady bugs every where I traveled. Each trip, every hotel lampshade, there was always a lady bug to greet me. Anywhere I went, Carmel California, NYC, Lexington, Ky., Bristol ,TN , I found them so comforting. I have a daughter and son and the ladybugs now appear on my daughters lampshade. It is a wonderful experience and I know they have a spiritual connection as if to offer comfort, guidance and a reminder that "God " is in charge and I need not worry. Thank you for sharing your story. I found your entry this evening after seeing a ladybug on my lampshade after praying for guidance this morning for help being a mother.

My daughter died at the age of 26 (11 yrs ago) while driving the car. She was eight months pregnant and left behind a husband and beautiful two year old daughter. For some reason whenever she wrote a note or letter she signed her name and drew a picture of a ladybird. In fact the last note she wrote was with a present to a newly married couple. Every since she died whenever I see a ladybird I think of her, which is very often. We collect all ladybirds in stone, jewllery etc. I never knew the link and decided today to look up the connection. I am not dissapointed with the result. Thank You

This truly was a blessing to me!!!! I was just sitting on my bed frustrated crying and worrying about what I should and need to do concerning my life and my career and my mom called to see if I could take her somewhere. As I walked out of my front door......I saw an unexplainable number of ladybugs on the wall by my door and when I got to my car..... It was just one one my hood!!!! Then I heard a voice say to me "look up the meaning of Ladybugs" I did and that is when I read your info! It was basically saying to me.....Let go and Let God and not to worry! Well, when I got to my mom.......she gave me some VERY EXCITING NEWS that relieved my worries concerning my worries!!!!

<p>My cat Leo passed away on Dec. 29th, he was really sick and had a vet appointment tomorrow. Unfortunately he didnt make it to the appointment. I felt incredibly guilty because I didnt know how sick he really was. He was strong and didnt really show his weakness. Had I have known how sick he really was I would have taken care of him faster. On the night of Dec. 29th I buried my friend with tears pouring down my face because I felt it was my fault he was dead. Since that night I go to where I buried him at least three times a day to show him that im still thinking about him and that ill never forget him. This morning when I went to visit him, a ladybug landed on my pants. I wasnt sure what it meant or if it meant anything at all so I started looking for a meaning. I came accross this story and it blew my mind. Im not a very spiritual person but I really do believe that the ladybug was Leo sending me a message that he is ok, and to "let go". Before today I hadnt seen a ladybug in years, let alone one that landed right on me. It cant just be a coincidence, thank you for this story!</p>

This is unbelievable. My sister recently died unexpectedly. As I sat outside her home, comforting her two daughters, a ladybug landed on my hand as I held theirs and crawled from my hand onto each of theirs and back. It was a very spiritual moment for all three of us. It felt as if she was bonding myself to my nieces, letting them know that she was there and telling me to watch over them. I could literally feel her presence. That ladybug stayed on me the entire time we remained at her home.

Thank you so much for posting this. It has brought me so much comfort as I end a tragic year.

Who is raising your two nieces? I feel for those children! One of my daughters grew up really close to the only friend she's ever had seriously! That friend who is named Dana died 5 years ago in a car accident when my daughter Ciara was pregnant with her daughter! Dana had a son named Kaleb who was 4 at the time! So his grandmother is raising him! I was drawn to him because I told my daughter that parenting isn't the easiest job in the world, "but it is the most important". My biggest fear is to pass away and have my children especially my two late in life ones who are 8 and 10 motherless! I will pray for you and those children because you will need alot of strength to get through and help them. The more of those experiences you three have the better it is for all because it shows how important God is in our lives even though we get distracted and tend to live from day to day with our earthly needs! God Bless you and your nieces! You have touched my heart!

My family thinks that my aunt Susan are the multiple moths in my grandparents house bc after the funeral, a big beautiful moth was on their door. The opened the door to find about a dozen moths all around their hoise

my father-in-law passed away yesterday (nov,29th) my husbands having a real hard time with it. i woke up this morning to find ladybugs on my ceiling. my windows are all closed an have been. i dont know how they got in here. but i understand why their here now..

This is wonderful. I don't know how I got it...? I clicked a bookmark to my email...and this appeared...

My mother-in-law loved ladybugs... I now have goosebumps...My wife did also, and she crossed 9/3/2011...@ a rather young age...but visits in dreams all the time...Ken

Ken, We are all connected in spiritual ways and God Bless you! You have touched others hearts!

Thank you. My Mom passed away on the 20th of October and on her hospital window ( on the 17th floor) were 3 ladybugs the day she passed. Today when opening a window, again there were 3 ladybugs. My Mom was 60 and her name is Mary. God Bless you for posting this.

This is a true story that I am about to share. My mom just passed away. We buried her on October 1,2012 and I have since continued to feel her presence. When I awoke this morning the entire front and back of my house was (still is) covered in ladybugs! They continue to fly in the house as well when I go in and out too. They also continue to land on me or my daughter. So I took to the Internet to find out what this meant. I find this story first and no lie I am just in awe right now after reading this! Thank you so very much for sharing this info! I feel so inspired right now! Thank You!

I have so many ladybug's around my house right now. I'm taking that as a sign that my love one's are watching over me n mines.

I like this i lost my only son a few years ago an every since ladybugs are always around my daughters an i even in the winter an i was told it was my son an after reading this i believe it now. Thank you.

This was so true and beautiful, thank you : )

i take great comfort from this..i lost my grandfather this year, one of my best friends..he was a very religious gentleman. Lady birds have been appearing lots in my life at times of struggle and they always release my troubles. One is in my bedroom as i'm writing this!

What a beautiful message and so perfect for me in this moment.
Had one show up in my car out of the blue after a call with my mother
Thank you for sharing your insights
Blessings to you and yours

I am so glad to have found your post! I have just had a "reading" from a psychic who felt guided to offer me a free healing over the phone. While we were talking, a large ladybug crawled across the window. The reading was about my needing to release old fears which were left over from my mother, and to heal around old childhood fears. Thank you so much for posting this... what an amazing coincidence and feeling of joyful rebirth!

thank you i needed to know it is a good thing ....a ladybug in my window NOV 1, 2012

Me and my boyfriend just broke up about three weeks ago and my girlfriend came over to have a beer and just chill for a bit. It's cold here in niva scotia and we were on the deck having a smoke and all of a sudden there were lady bugs everywhere. They just kept coming and landing on me. Then tonight I look up on my curtain and there is a lady bug on it.. I will leave it there cause we are having a bad wind storm tonight...just thought I would share Random

Hey, so yesterday as I came home from school, my friend noticed that there was a random ladybug in my room. Later, we noticed that there was literally a swarm of ladybugs in my room. About 20 of them were in my room and I have no idea how they all got there. Once I got rid of them, they would still come about, only 2 or 3 though. They were finally all gone and today has been good until about 1am there was another random ladybug and than about at 1:30am as well. Well, I just woke up at 2:30am due to either a seizure in my sleep or sleep paralysis, I'm unsure what happened. I couldn't move or talk. I just shook uncontrollably. When it stopped (only lasted about 6 seconds) I started my research and I'm starting to think they have some strange coronation for me. I'm not very religious, but maybe this is gods way of saying that I need to be? I don't know, it just seems really strange.

I was about to go to bed, but then spotted something on my was a ladybug. I have no clue how it go there, nevertheless I let it crawl on my finger and then took it outside. I guess I just found it strange.

I truly liked the answer I received from this note. Seeing lady bugs always made me smile and treat them gently. Our family just lost our the most precious gift, my grandson of five years old, and the day before he died the front porch had about fifty or more on the step by the front door. The day he died the back deck was filled with them. It was awesome to see and now I know why this happened.thank you for your information CZ

Sorry for your loss. I have always heard that they are a sign of good luck and they are so delicate it represents to me that life is delicate....When my momma died she was in the hospital in April and there we a whole bunch in her room too...It was a peaceful time though. I &lt;3 ladybugs..right now my home has several in here too but I jsut leave them alone they make me smile

Was out cleaning my windows yesterday, hit a ladybird by mistake and tried to revive it by putting it aside (and prayed for it). Next thing it is flying and 6 more have appeared from nowhere. The rest of the day they were trying at every opportunity to get in the windows and it was bizarre (especially as the weather has now turned cold). Found your post, it was very helpful. It comes the day after me and my husband concluded that God was trying to shut down our old life and the business. We had been struggling on but everytime we did something we would get nothing so clearly that we both concluded that it was just too coincidental that everything felt dead. We have been asking God to speak to us. Your post helped, we will stop worrying and hear the voice that a new era has begun. God bless you.

Just had a ladybug land on me. I have been feeling sad and angry about certain situations in my life present and past & I decided to google what the ladybug symbolizes, and i feel a bit better. Whether or not it means anything,
reading that i should 'let go', makes good sense to me. I will work on that...

Wow just notice that a friend on facebook had liked this post, my beloved father passed away approx 5 weeks ago, and today while out on an island in Wallis Lake, NSW I came across a Ladybug while walking in the sand along the waters edge, I noticed it and walked on by. But then something made me go back to look for it, I walk back and found it, which was a miracle in itself. I picked it up carefully and it crawled up my hand, staying with me for about a minute then flew away. I find it very significant that "Those who may have this totem are usually family oriented with strong morals and social values". My father had very strong moral and ideals, he didn't go to church but was a religious man, he believed in a god and thanked him everyday while saying grace at each meal he partaked in, even if he sat eating on his own. In Dads final 1/2 hour of life I asked him to send me a sign, something, anything to show me he is alright. Since then there has been several signs shown to me and I truly believe today with the ladybug was one of those signs. I will take on board the lessons of the ladybug....Love you Dad! xo
