Only weeks after returning from her second Yoga Teacher Training in California, Emily found this lovely creature perched at the top of her front door. It remained their for a few days before taking flight again.
Luna Moths have a lifespan of about a week, so these sightings are somewhat rare. The symbolism of these lovely creatures are spiritual rebirth, protection, and love. With such a quick glimpse of life the Luna moths only purpose is to reproduce, to live it’s life to the fullest with adventure and love.
“When I first saw this friend above our door I was in awe. I didn’t want to disturb it by opening the door or allowing it to slam shut. I was so mindful of opening and closing the door while my visitor was there. Every morning I would come down the stairs and slowly open the door to see if he was still there. Morning after morning I felt blessed to have such a creature hang around for that long. 5 days.
This was a time of spiritual growth for me. I had just returned from The Ananda School of Yoga and Meditation in Nevada City, California. I received my certifications as a meditation teacher and to help physically assist my students in the physical asana aspect of Yoga. Personally, I was diving deeper into a daily meditation practice. That luna moths presence, to me, was Love. During those few days I found myself praying to the moth below my meditation space. In meditation, that moth represented a Divine presence, a feeling of support and protection, and the magic of the life we are given.”
