Finding pest in our homes can be alarming—especially when they seemingly appear out of nowhere.
While pests can be uncomfortable—dealing with them may take more than just calling an exterminator.
Sometimes the universe sends us messages in ways that may go unnoticed—pests are no exception.
Depending on the type of pest you have in your home, the message they bring will be different—but important and hold something to bring to your awareness.
Maggots are a common household pest, and many people are aware of what they symbolize.
The Spiritual Meaning Of Maggots In House:
Maggots are the true form of new beginnings that bring with them tremendous growth.
A maggot will transform into a fly—which may happen quickly and effortlessly.
Maggots may be a message to welcome the changes that are happening or are soon to occur.
Life happens in cycles, just like the cycle of a maggot.
When you allow what’s naturally supposed to occur, you allow life to bring you new and enjoyable experiences.
Similar to a maggot’s cycle from maggot to fly—it first goes through the cycle of egg to maggot.
Once the maggot is in its worm-like form, this shows the transformation and metamorphosis that it previously went through.
Maggots appearing in your home may indicate that you’ve either been through a transformative time or you are nearing one.
This change is powerful, and will likely leave you feeling as if you or your life are completely different because you will have shed the “old you.”
Time to Let Go
Maggots feed on rotting material, such as old produce and meats.
They prefer foods that are spoiled, fermented—things that should no longer be in your home.
When maggots appear they may symbolize that you are holding onto something that you must let go of.
Whether it’s a toxic relationship, suppressed emotion, or un-forgiveness, these pests are showing you the result of hanging onto something that has gone bad.
If this is the case, work towards finding solutions to rid yourself of whatever is plaguing you.
Clean Your Energy
Maggots are associated with being “dirty” or “unclean.”
If this is the energy you feel when they appear in your home, this may be a reflection of your own energy field.
It’s vital to keep your energy field clean and pure.
Throughout our days, we can hold onto energies we come into contact with, and sometimes these energies can pollute our own energy.
Visualize your energy field being cleansed and rejuvenated.
Use palo santo or sage around your body and your home to dissolve any unwanted energies.
You Need Rest
Maggots are known for consumption. When they appear in your home, it is because they have found food to consume.
Maggots may mirror back to you that you are being consumed by something in your life.
If you are a workaholic or don’t spend enough time doing things you enjoy—maggots are here to tell you it’s time to rest and take some time for yourself.
Life is too short to spend it doing things that don’t bring us joy or energize us.
When we spend more time doing things we enjoy, this allows more of our life to be enjoyable—and we’re able to move through life in a more desirable manner. Each day spend some time doing at least one thing you enjoy.
After a while, you’ll feel your outlook on yourself and life as a whole become a lot lighter.
Finding pests, especially maggots, in your home can be alarming.
This feeling shouldn’t be taken at face value, as sometimes the universe uses mundane experiences to alert us of the bigger picture.
If you have a feeling of fear or distress when finding these worms in your home, take a look at your life and see if you can sense what the universe may be warning you of.
You may have rushed into a relationship or project without building the proper foundation first. If your health isn’t ideal.

Most people may be frightened or disgusted by the site of these harmless worms, and this is due to their limited perspectives.
The universe may bring maggots into your home to help you learn compassion and acceptance for all.
Life runs through all living things, maggots are no exception.
Try to see the maggots are the universe’s creation—just as you are.
There is no difference in importance between you and a maggot from the universe’s viewpoint.
We all have a role to play in life and once we acknowledge that in all living things, we enable a connection to compassion that’s achieved no other way.
