I have always been mystified by Dragonflies…and then elated and made them my new best friends…when I learned that they eat mosquitoes…my mortal enemy (yup, I am a huge mosquito magnet!) I thought by moving to the dry arid southwest would quell their thirst for my blood (nope, they are here too!)

The symbolic meaning of the dragonfly is that it carries with them, the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life. As a spirit animal, the dragonfly is connected to the symbolism of change and light. Here are aligned meaning of this:

Change and transformation
Joy, lightness of being
Symbol of the realm of emotions, an invitation to dive deeper into your feelings.

Being on the lookout for false truths about self, you know, our old friend (insert sarcasm) our Inner Critic!

Dragonflies begin life in water and then move into the air and fly… they Symbolize metamorphosis and transformation, it inspires change needed in life in order to reach full potential.

The dragonfly is a swift pilot, it has amazing flight patterns as it able to change direction quickly, gliding effortlessly through the air. It inspires us to use our ability to be flexible and highly adaptable in any situation that comes our way.

The dragonfly is a great anchor to focus on when you’re stuck in a situation and need assistance to gain a new perspective. The solution might lay in your ability to adapt and tackle the issue from a different angle. Be invited to keep a light, positive outlook in life.

Dragonflies are fast, agile and have a short life cycle. Dragonflies are always moving fast from place to place, a reminder to live life fully in the present.

The Dragonfly reminds us to be encouraged to show our true colors more often and shine. Dragonfly symbolism is all over the world, like Japan…who made the dragonfly its national emblem. It is a symbol of joy and rebirth.

The dragonfly changes colors as it matures, you may be called to live and experience yourself differently. Stay open to the enfoldment of your personal journey.
