“On Wings of Change”

The Energy of Angel Number 5

The angel number 5 brings the energy of positive and significant change. Yet, it is not the energy of ordinary change. Rather it signifies a divine metamorphosis of past experiences merging together to create something new and different.

A change that is much like the transformation of the butterfly. In fact, the caterpillar will outgrow and shed its skin four times. It is the 5th time going through this cycle that it will instead hang from a branch to form a chrysalis. From which it will emerge a butterfly.

The Angel Number 5 resonates with the energy of such positive, necessary, and life-long change.

It also resonates with the energy of personal freedom and individuality. Representing our ability to free ourselves from our past in order to grow and adapt physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Carrying the energy of versatility, adaptability, non-attachment, variety, and release/surrender the angel number 5 reminds us to learn and grow from our past experiences but also be willing to let them go so we are not ruled by them.

Like the caterpillar who must summon the courage to venture into vast and unknown change, the angel number 5 represents the courageousness it takes for us to step into change. Along with the resourcefulness and motivation to take on the activity and the adventure of making these changes a reality.

The angel number 5 also resonates with the proverbial heart. Sending us the reminder that because you are the only one to know your true heart’s desire, you are the only one who can follow your true passions and achieve your destiny.

Although the angel number 5 represents the kind of change we ultimately go through alone, at the same time, it resonates with the energy of companionability, mercy, and kindness. Reminding us that our relationships with others are a significant part of our individual life and success. This also brings the energy of being surrounded by angels and spiritual guides.

Change is Occurring

By seeing the angel number 5, the angels are sending you a message that a major and positive change is in your near future. In fact, this change has probably been in the process of occurring for a while now. Perhaps for weeks, months, or even years. When the caterpillar enters the chrysalis, the wings it will have as a butterfly have already begun to grow – unseen beneath the surface.

You also are about to emerge through a major life change, but the transformation has already begun.

Be Prepared

The Angels want you to keep a grateful and positive state of mind. This will allow you to be in a place to accept and adapt to the change as it occurs. They understand that for many of us, change is hard, and venturing into the unknown is scary. So they are sending you this message to prepare you.

The angels want you to understand that this change will take courage. But it is good. It will bring you benefits for the rest of your life.

By keeping a positive outlook and an open mind, you allow the change you are about to go through to be the positive life-long change you are meant to receive.

Angels are Surrounding You

The angels want you to know they are surrounding you and ready to assist you through this change. Remember to call on them for help if the change ever feels daunting or scary.

Be Kind To Yourself

The angels urge you to treat yourself with kindness and mercy. During times of change, it is easy to get caught up in judgment and negativity of ourselves. The angels remind you to look at yourself through their eyes and through the eyes of those who love you. Remember to implement a lot of self-care as you go through this change.

Free Yourself

In order to grow and have the full benefits of the change that is upon you, you’ll need to free yourself from the restraints of your past. Now is the time to let go of your past. Taking with you the lessons from your experiences and releasing anything that holds you back.

“Out with the old, in with the new” is a good phrase to keep in mind.

Once the butterfly is born, its lifestyle will become completely different from before its wings emerged. Unlike the caterpillar, it will enjoy the freedom of flight and the sweetness of nectar, but its purpose will also be different.

To try to continue living as a caterpillar would deny the butterfly of its destiny.

Follow Your Heart

The change occurring in your life is positive and divinely guided. Although such a big change may seem overwhelming, it is for your greater good. It will be worth it.

In order to gain the full benefit of this change, you need to take action. You have earned this change, but it will not happen if you do not act upon the opportunity before you.

So, the angel number 5 is a message to follow your heart. Avoid listening to the ego or any negative or self-defeating talk. The angels are sending you this message, so your actions do not end up getting in the way. Follow your heart, including your passions, imagination, and desires, and you will be able to assist this divine change without allowing any fear of change to stand in the way.

Take a Break

The primary message of angel number 5 is about change and transformation. However, the angels may also send this number as a message to take a break.

Your mind has been heavily focused on many things, and the angels are supportive of your efforts. But they are saying you need to step back and take some time to heal and grow through rest and relaxation.

Take a vacation or go somewhere new to gain a different perspective. This is an excellent time to travel (physically or even just in your mind) and learn something new.

“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.”
