Dragonfly represents: 
getting beyond self created illusions

I love this passage about the spiritual essence of Dragonfly meaning:

" The dragonfly spiritually embodies the stripping away of negativity that holds us back, helping us to achieve our dreams and goals. Dragonflies are the keepers of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability. Dragonflies inspire spirituality and creativity, they help us on the path of discovery and enlightenment. They remind us that anything is possible. "  Unknown 

In embracing this ideal, we are able to identify our self created illusions ~ those things that keep us feeling "stuck", those ideas that prevent us from spreading our wings and exploring our pure potential.

Spiritual Meaning of Dragonfly . . .

The beautiful essence and energy of the Dragonfly totem animal symbolizes going past self-created illusions that limit growth and change.

Dragonflies are the embodiment of color magic, and transformation

Dragonfly totem energy reminds you of  the Divine message of  Light ~ as the dragonfly reflects the light and opens creative imagination to flow in your life.

Dragonfly spirit animal is mysterious, as we always wonder about her world, it seems she comes from another realm ... a realm of mystery and magic. 

Dragonfly is capable of moving in all directions, speaking to you of pure potential ~ giving you the gift of flashes of visions and inspiration for what you can create in your life ~ teaching you how you can skillfully maneuver the terrain, with swift precision actions and movements... This is why transformation is a common aspect of Dragonfly symbolism.   

Dragonfly rides the winds of change and sails on the breezes near pools, streams and lakes.  Dragonfly spirit could be inviting you for an outing near the water, feeling the wind in your air ~ this is powerful medicine for your mind, body and spirit.  In quiet contemplation you will have visions and flashes of brilliance revealing your destiny.

When Dragonfly is your Totem Animal . . .

When I first start tapping into the Spirit of the Dragonfly, I begin sensing wondrous and mystical telepathic energies.  I'm reminded of a time last summer when I was sitting in my yard on a hot summer day and I wanted to communicate something of great importance to my daughter.  Out of nowhere a beautiful Dragonfly landed on the antenna of my daughters car.  I took it as a sign to communicate telepathically to her, the Dragonfly stayed there for at least an hour, all the while I gently relayed my message. The Dragonfly left and then returned briefly fluttering it's wings as if to say, your telepathic message has been received!  It was a beautiful experience. 

The essence of the symbolic Dragonfly meaning is  "break-free of self created illusion... the ideas and stories of what others have told you about your potential ~ or what you have begun to tell yourself". 

Break-free is the message, the invitation to shift your way of thinking and believing in the blink of an eye ~ because you and you alone hold the power to choose and know what is best for yourself.
