Cockroach Medicine, or What I learned Living in Florida with Giant Bugs
Further, on another esoteric level, Cockroach could be warning that your present state of mind, emotion, & dis-ease (personal or environmental) is attracting harmful energies, such as ill-will from another or other harmful spirits & entities. In this type of messaging, Cockroach may warn you of entering into a harmful situation, or be telling you to keep on alert for untrustworthy or harmful encounters with others. This can be the case often in sudden instances, like walking through a parking lot and suddenly seeing one scurry in front of you, or - like in Florida - having one seem to jump out of you from otherwise lovely-looking tropical landscaping foliage.
With any animal or insect omens, it is important to be attentive. A crow picking bits of hot dog bun in a parking lot is not necessarily unusual these days. However, if it pauses and watches you closely, or flies over and lands on your car, that is a strong indicator that there's a message. It is the poignant or out-of-the-ordinary behavior and occurrences of animals, insects, and other features of Nature which most often point to omen or message. Most of the literature I found while researching the Cockroach warned of terrible things. And, while they do not bring happy-go-lucky or high-vibration energy to situations, Nature has given them purpose, and still there is something to learn from them. Their unsavory vibration and discomfort is all about that third arm of Karma, Destruction. Natural Law even states that if something stagnates for an extended period without change, it will self-destruct.
From this perspective, then, we see that Cockroach Medicine, though not welcomed, may be respected for the warnings, the opportunity presented that change needs to happen and a clearing of energies needs to be done. With so many tactics for pest control around our lawn and homes, we can then see these warnings clearly, following our thoughts, behaviors, and situations because Nature will send Her messengers no matter what we do when She wants to be heard.
In conclusion, let me tell you why I felt the need share on this topic. I had a few encounters while living here in Florida with all manner of giant bug - Palmetto Bugs, Death's Head Cockroaches, all kinds of beetles, and who-knows-what-else. I have to say that I was disappointed on a lack of literature on certain insect medicines, but one thing was certain - all the sources spoke of harmful medicine from evil-doers, disease, and pestilence. I asked a friend who claimed to have Cockroach Medicine. This person described her encounter as overcoming fear. That conversation led me to take a good look at future encounters or messages. The first one came perhaps six months later in a dream and regarding my newborn child at the time. Suffice to say, that was several years ago and I have finally gained an understanding that makes sense without putting a completely dualistic tendency on the creature. Yes, overcoming fears has a lot to do with it. Yes, it's Florida and there are bugs everywhere. But, my journeys through fear, healing, dis-ease, past lives, entity attachments, ancient ancestors, old souls, house clearing, aura cleansing, and so much more have taught me a little more about Nature and human beings' rightful place in it.
Peace & blessings!
