Spiritual Significance of Dragonfly

Spiritual Significance of Dragonfly

Dragonfly totem and the search for personal authenticity

The dragonfly is a fascinating animal characterized by the beauty of its colors, the lightness of its wings, and its scintillating body. The meaning of this power animal is associated with the symbolism of light, but also an illusion.

Those who have the dragonfly as a spirit animal may be encouraged to show their true colors more often and shine. Even if they may be more discreet than let’s say the peacock, they often exert a fascinating influence and arouse curiosity in others.

When this fly shows up in your life, it’s perhaps time to look through illusion. A situation or someone’s intentions are not clear and may be deceiving.

Connection with the spirits of nature

Dragonflies are powerful allies to connect with the spirit of nature. Their fairy-like quality makes them auspicious spirit animals to work with the power of light and fairy realms.

Animal of wonder, the dragonfly can bring forth the enchanting spirit of our own nature. When you see this spirit animal, allow yourself to open up to the magic of nature and the elements.

Symbolism in the world and ancient traditions

Japan made the dragonfly its national emblem. It is a symbol of joy and rebirth. In some Native American traditions, it is also a symbol of the departed souls. For the Mayan, the dragonfly is the emblematic animal of the goddess of creativity, Ix Chel. It is said that the dragonfly’s wings and magical songs revived her after she almost got killed.

Dreaming of Dragonflies

Similar to other spirit animals, the dragonfly is a symbol of transformation and change. They begin their life in the water, but soon transform into the agile flyers that we know them to be. If dragonfly appears in your dreams it may be telling you that a change is coming. If the dragonfly lands on you, it is believed to be a good change. If the dragonfly is dead, it is believed to be a bad change.

Dragonflies are fast, agile and have a short life cycle. If the dragonfly in your dream is moving fast from place to place, it may be a sign to live life fully in the present. Where have you been holding back? What are you waiting for? Do you dare to fly fast and free?

    This summer in my swimming pool I was visited,every day by a red dragonfly. whilst swimming l was followed up and down and comming to meet me from one end of the pool to the other. Even I was calling her and she was flying passing over me and landed near by. As she was resting on the edge of the swimming pool, l use to swim towards her and stop at a distance of 10 inches and talk to her, so close that I could see clearly her Little round mouth and big eyes. This was practically every day. I was so impressd that at the end the purpose of me going to the swimming pool to see her again.The pool wa covered mid september, but I still going there expecting to se her again.
