Symbolism of the Dragonfly
Yesterday, I gifted myself with a nice, long walk outside in the afternoon. I was in total awe of the number of dragonflies that were swarming around me. It was absolutely magical. I then passed by a person biking along the trail listening to his i-Pod and I wondered whether he was even seeing any of the magic that was all around him. Right after this, I had a dragonfly land right beside me. I kneeled down to watch it and was so taken by the beauty of its iridescent wings. I knew that there was a message it was trying to communicate to me because it stayed there until I stood up.
Dragonfly medicine helps to break illusions. They represent a place where magic use to reign. They deal with “change, wisdom and enlightenment and communications from the elemental world. The elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants, and of the elements air, earth, fire and water.” This quote from my medicine cards on the meaning of dragonfly very much resonated with me.
If dragonfly has crossed your path, you are being urged to seek out areas in your life that you need to change. Dragonfly medicine helps you on your path of transformation.
Have you seen dragonflies lately? Does this message resonate for you?
