Dragonflies inspire spirituality and creativity, they help us on the path of discovery and enlightenment. They reminder us that anything is possible.  Unknown

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 symbol appears to you 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 ~ how you can skillfully maneuver the terrain, with swift precision actions and movements... This is why transformation is common Dragonfly symbolism.  

Dragonfly rides the winds of change and sails on the breeze 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. 

Dragonfly totem animal proclaims and supports you to  "breakfree of this illusion... the ideas and stories of what others have told you about your potential ~ or what you have begun to tell yourself". 

Breakfree 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.

Dragonfly as a Power Animal Spirit Guide...  

 Dragonfly power animal symbolizes feeling free to express your true feelings, your true colors and to celebrate the unique way you shine in the light, unlike any other. 

Dragonfly is mesmerizing... whenever we see her dancing in the sky we stop and watch her ~ captured by her grace and beauty, until as quickly as she appeared ~ she vanishes again.

The delicate Dragonfly shows that she is a very powerful ally and a symbolic reminder to be on the lookout for falsehoods, deceit, those speaking untrue misleading words. 


Native American Dragonfly Meaning . . .

To the Native Americans the Dragonfly brings signs of happiness, and delight, to all who catch a glimpse of the fluttering iridescent wings. 

Because the Dragonfly lives near clean waters, Dragonfly is a beautiful symbol of purity.

Dragonfly also symbolizes riding on the wind, and eating of the energies of the wind, being sustained by the energy of Great Spirit.

Chinese & Japanese Dragonfly Symbolism

Dream Meaning of the Dragonfly . . .

Has the Dragonfly appeared in your dream?

When you have a dream of the Dragonfly, something within is ready to break~free from the dream world and become fully present in your real world! 

Dragonfly speaks. . . "it's time for change".  

Whatever has been holding you back, the Dragonfly has come to help you see your dream manifest into physical reality.  Just let it all go.  To do this takes total faith, you have to know that your dreams are aligned with the stars.  Your work is to suspend all doubt and hold the vision of your dream unfolding in your life, knowing that your thoughts create the portal for energetic transformation  ~ where thoughts become reality.  

Dreams of the Dragonfly are confirmation that you are on the right path, regardless of where you have been up until now.   Dragonfly sets you free from all, reminding you that you can transform at anytime with the power of intention. 

Dragonfly always lives near water, the realm of intuition ~ Dragonfly has come to your dream to show you the way. . . just breathe, and trust.  

To connect deeper to the energies in your dream, let your mantra be about change, beautiful change.
