What Having Cockroaches Actually Means

Have you ever met anyone with a positive spin on a cockroach? Seems to me they are looked down upon and despised by all.

Besides not emptying your trash, have you ever considered why roaches appear in your life? Is it possible that they come and go to teach us something? Can we learn from their symbolism?

Consider the following information my girl found on the internet:

The Cockroach teaches us how to use what we have available to us for survival.
To clean out the dead and useless aspects of our lives.
When the Cockroach appears as a totem,
our sensitivity to subtle changes will be magnified.
We will have the power to scurry out of danger.

Although often seen as a disgusting animal,
the Cockroach is actually a gifted teacher in the art of survival and successful adaptability, especially in environment that may seem a bit hostile.

Sounds bogus right? I certainly would have thought so until a recent occurrence at my girl’s apartment.

The roaches appeared during a time where she and I were both contemplating making changes in our lives. Growing weary of the status quo, we considered cutting the source of unhappiness and stress, hoping it would help us move in a positive direction. As soon as we made the decision to cut that source out, the roaches disappeared. I’m not even kidding.

Shortly after, she told me that a lone roach made a quick appearance that evening. It all made sense when I informed her of the very difficult phone conversation I had experienced that same evening, pertaining to the source of stress and frustration that she and I had recently both let go of. No joke, the roach appeared at the same time I was having that conversation.

Since then, no roaches.
