In feng shui applications, the use of butterflies is in many ways similar to the feng shui use of the bird's symbol. Both birds and butterflies are flying free, which speaks to the deep human longing for a joyful and free life close to heavens. Butterflies are also holding a unique and alchemical quality of energy based on different stages of their creation.

Love and Romance

The most common feng shui use of the butterfly symbol is as feng shui cure for love and romance, probably because love is the most transformative feeling that makes you feel like flying. Butterflies also evoke a sense of vulnerable, awe-inspiring and joyful beauty that can only be compared with the feeling of being in love.

The additional element of using the feng shui symbol of butterflies as a love feng shui cure is the element of freedom to choose among a number of suitors. Butterfly symbol is one of the best feng shui love cures for single people (when used in the Love and Marriage area of the bagua). Of course, once you have found a suitable love partner and are ready to settle in, a better feng shui love cure would be one that speaks of commitment and devotion. Explore the feng shui symbology of birds to help you find the best feng shui love and marriage cure.

However, this is not to say that butterflies are only used as a feng shui love remedy for single people, not at all! As with most symbols and images, there is always more than one meaning that can be used for its powerful associations.

Creativity and Transformation

Another excellent feng shui use of the symbol of butterflies is in the Creativity and Children area of the Bagua; its presence will help open and energize the flow of creative energy in your life. You can also use the image of butterflies as a temporary feng shui cure for any area of your life that needs transformation. If you are currently experiencing difficulties in specific areas of your life, you can bring the energy of butterflies into the corresponding bagua areas of your home or your bedroom.

As butterflies know how to gracefully go through transformational stages to become the beauty that they are, you will be guided to do the same with ease and grace in your life. Be it with colorful art, photos, fabric, wallpaper, garden decor and more, there are many creative ways to incorporate the healing energy of butterflies into your home decor. Choose the form that inspires you the most and get ready to be inspired!
