My first encounter with a millipede happened in school. I came across it on the floor and looked at it intently.
A teacher who was passing by asked me what I was looking at and I replied “This weird-looking insect.”
The teacher looked at it and said “It’s a millipede, which isn’t an insect but more like a seafood and related to crayfish and lobster.” I was bewildered, of course.
I was eating a yummy lunch a few days ago consisting of crayfish, shrimp, and lobsters. This took me back to my first encounter with millipedes.
As homage to the time when I learned that they weren’t insects, here’s a post on the spiritual meanings of millipedes, especially if you found them at home.
Millipede Spiritual Meaning
A millipede is a reminder from the heavens to never jump to conclusions.
We should instead gather all the details and data, and only then make a decision or form an opinion.
Think of the millipede and how often we mistake them for insects.
They may be everywhere, but not a lot of people know that they are more related to seafood.
Many also fear them but they cannot harm people.

Seeing a millipede in the kitchen:
The heavens are telling you not to waste food when you see a millipede in your kitchen.
Sadly, many of us take for granted our blessings, especially our food. Many people grew up having so much on their plates, and thus do not know how hungry other people are.
Other individuals do not also know the hardships of farmers and other food producers and so they let food go to waste.

- Act aloof so nobody gets close to them;
- Pulls away when they find themselves opening up to other people.
The causes for these behaviors vary but the outcomes are the same.
People pull away from close relationships because of different reasons.
Let the millipede you spot in your room be a reminder to allow others to see the authentic you.

When you see a millipede in the bedroom, it could be a reminder from the ones above to choose your partner well.
As they say, your life partner is someone whom you will share a bed with, eat meals with, split your money with, raise the kids and share life’s ups and downs.
The heavens want a partner for you who will bring out the best in you so you must choose well.
Seeing a millipede in the bathroom:
When you see a millipede in the bathroom, beware!
