You are very distressed; it is very evident.  But please, calm down.  Omens sometimes have meaning, other times they don't.  I flew over the Bermuda Traingle on Friday the 13th.  I'm not dead, but I did get really jumpy when we hit a big patch of turbulance.  

Now I do pay attention to omens.  Not typically omens of death, but omens of weather.  However, I have looked into omens concerning black butterflies and moths.  I don't mean to insult, but are you of hispanic background?  The only omens I have found dealing with black butterflies and moths comes from Mexican origin (I believe).  

And I wish your mother the best of health.



Well yes. I recently learned my grandfather was of Swedish decent and my grandmother is Mexican. I guess these beliefs were passed on to my mother and her sisters early on by their mother. I hate to get immersed in all these old wives tales...but sometimes you have to wonder you know? As i've previously stated; I am not to easy to make a believer out of- I believe in logic and science as well...though maybe after thinking about it, in hindsight- Maybe I am easy to convince and whatnot.

It's just weird and scary when you see these things happening around you and you feel a negative energy around. I know it sounds crazy and believe you me, I wouldn't believe in this if I couldn't feel it. But I do feel it. I feel somekind of tension in the air..a dangerous one..You know what I mean? Like somekind of energy..I can't really explain it...as it's been rare when I can sense these things. I'm certainly no expert.

Also, I have calmed down considerably but I won't lie- this whole ordeal is still lingering silently in the back of my mind.

Well here's another to add to your list questionmark.

Last night, at around 3:00 am..I was startled by what seemed to be a bird chirping. I was weirded out since I've never heard birds chirping around my neighborhood at said hour. Long story short- It was an owl. Maybe I'm becoming increasingly paranoid..but owls are not common around my area, especially not around these parts- neither are those huge black moth/butterflies. Believe me I used to be skeptical about this kind of thing too...but it's my instincts you know? I truly feel as if something dangerous/life threatening is on the horizon..and it might be for me, my mother, or anyone else in this household. I don't know what to think? It's different when it's happening to you..you don't think like a skeptic anymore. Is there anyway I can avoid death>? Everyone in here is young..I could not survive a death in the family right  now..If my mom dies as Ive said before..Im going to go with her.

I have several out of time birds chirping around 2-3 am, nobody died >.>

usually people die because they believe in omens cause they do everything to avoid these bad omens only to fall into the death trap itself.

Don't discount the Swedish side of your family when it comes to weird beliefs and superstition.  My great grandmother from rural Sweden lived to be 102, so I got to know her pretty well.  You wouldn't believe some of the unusual beliefs she had.  Maybe the Swedish side of your family is part Saami.  If so, they've been herding reindeer and developing their own take on the world since the Ice Age.

Today..the weirdest thing happened....this bird..its not an owl like I previously thought..it's something else..its big and white, similiar to an owl..You whistle at it and it whistles at you right back and in the exact same way..But thats not the strange thing. The tree it was standing on...it was one of the bigger and more beautful trees on my yard. But only hours later(today)..the tree has dried out and its leaves have rapidly fallen. All my other trees around it..they're all fine and green. How could this tree dry out in a matter of a couple of hours? I believe this creature has killed it.  This is so strange and it truly scares me. Damn...why me? Sigh..Stupid me for not believing in these things. I need a witch..someone who knows about this..That bird..it keeps coming back. And it's not normal..it just isint normal...Im scared as hell but..hopefully there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope so.

I read my posts in here everyday..mostly hoping someone with experience in this area can help me...I read my posts and I know it sounds crazy..it sounds like something out of a scary story..but damn..I dunno what to think anymore...What's happening? Can someone please help me..your sarcastic replies are of no help...I need someone who's had something similiar happen..I need advice on this please...just please..

Honestly, it's not common around here. And I hate to believe such tales but it is all coinciding(sp?) and it keeps getting me stressed out. Not to mention, today is Friday the 13th. Trust me, Im not naturally superstitious..but all these signs...could they all just be a strange coincidence and nothing more? I truly, truly hope so... things are looking bleak and I can see my whole life just falling apart if my mother dies. She is the only person that I love and she is all that I have. I'd rather it be me than her. I have prayed, that if someone in this household is going to die soon...I have asked for them to take my life instead of anyone elses. For all you witches out there..is there anyway one can be traded in for another? Can death make an exception? Will it trade?

Sweetheart, don't trade your life in for anothers, you can't make deals and you will end up making yourself very ill sad.gif.  This world is better with you in it rather than out of it.  Read what you have posted below:

The tree in your backyard may have been powerful in some way, it was that that died - hence the black moth.  The creature did not kill it, it was due to die.

Maybe the owl wizzed on your tree and poisoned it. If the owl comes back take a paintball gun and shoot it in its butt. Trust me, it won't come back again and if it does shoot it again. Not to be mean but if this is some evil bird you can laugh at the mark on its butt and it will be tagged for easy identification. But if you try it, make sure you are a good shot so you don't hit the neighbors house.  wink2.gif

Hi

No need to worry.

I am lead to believe that the black moth is a visitation from a deceased person.

It happened to me last night thats why I'm also trawling for answers.

I was about to pck it in for the night. Turned of all the light around my house. Then I rememberd my cell phoe was in the lounge, so I went back and as I turned on the light this huge black moth was flying straight towrds me, then past be and into my bedroom. It was about as startled as me. So I ussured it through the bathroom window with a towel, but I did not want to kill it.

I felt wierd about the whole thing because it felt spooky. So I went onto the inet and found this site about old wives tales:

http://www.oldsuperstitions.com/index.php?query=animal


"A big black moth in the house means a deceased one is just visiting reincarnated through that moth."

Hey goodluck - let me know how things go. Hopefully I'm still around to tell the tale. So best check on me later. x

Anyone ever heard of this? I'm in desperate need for some answers. Only serious answers please. If you have nothing to contribute don't post at all because I'm as serious as I could be.

A few years ago, an old lady told me something about Black Butterflies, that are big, are a symbol of death. It means someone is going to die if it attaches itself to a house. She told me there is hope however, one must kill the Black Butterfly, inorder to avoid death. I'm really scared about this. I saw this huge black Butterfly on some lady's house just a few days later she died.

Also, one time at my aunts house one of them Butterflies(The Huge Blackone) landed on right next to the door. My grandma killed it before it got away. Not long after that, someone shot my aunt twice and she survived. I have not much to go on this subject but it frightens me alot. My mother has been feeling ill and she very young only 36. We are having alot of family problems and my mother was outside by the pool earlier today...she was doing some chores and one of them Huge Black Buttefly flew out and near her. When she went inside it retreated somewhere by the house. She was talking to one of my elder aunts and told her about it, the elder aunt warned her about the significance of the Black Butterfly (Which was very big..like a small bird) and told her to kill it if she sees it again. I just got home from work(On my break) and my mom told me to look for it in my room- the Balcony outside of my room. I did, and sure enough, it was right there. It frightened me! I tried killing it but it flew off into the sky and then right back to my balcony. my mom ran upstairs and tried killing it but escaped and onto the roof. We have a two story house and I climbed from the balcony to the roof and searched for it and almost killed it but it flew off again. It flew off into the sky and I just hope it doesnt come back again..I know it sounds ridiculous but I beg for some helpful advice of anyone who might know anything?

Witches, people who know about this sorta thing? please help

If it flies away, is the Omen voided?

Thanks, got another entry for my "The biggest Bulls**t of the world"collection. Thanks


I'm glad to see you took her post seriously.  hmm.gif

Haven't heard of your story before but I have heard of a similar story about a creature called "The Mothman". I don't know when sightings stopped occuring, but I heard it around the time the Silver Bridge collapsed and 46 people died in that incident. That was around where the mothman had been spotted too.

Thank you all for your support.

All I know is..after much thought and reflection on my reaction and behavior towards this thing, here are my current thoughts.

I've repeatedly stated that I am not a firm believer in witches and bad omens, or atleast I wasn't until this began to happen to me. I see these things who are then followed by a feeling of dread and a thickness in the air. Alot of tension...Am I letting these signs get the best of me? Because of such tales that I've heard and whatnot...could this be real? Or is it just a figment of my very, big imagination?

My conclusion- I'm still undecided as to what to think of this matter. I'm still skeptical about it all but at the same time, I'm not going to completely turn a blind eye to this. I'm going to keep my mind open. If this is nothing but my imagination running wild, then I will happily admit to it when this ordeal runs it's course. If it's real- then I'm going to face it and not be afraid anymore. If it's real, then I'm going to do my damnest to beat it.

I will update on the situation, also; I'm going to film this creature and when I come face to face with it again tonight. I am expecting it to return tonight once again...We'll see what happens.

Would not be a bad idea, that will get it out of your system. Get a good pic so we can tell you what it is.

Holy crap, you didn't post "black" big butterflies. There was a moth the size of my palm on my screen door a couple days ago.
