Dragonfly – grace/change/power
Dragonflies are characterized by their quick, sudden movements and a powerful wing strokes. The dragonfly uniquely changes direction on a whim. Symbolizing transition, the dragonfly has impeccable vision, which is a reminder to open one’s eyes to the beauty of life’s journey. Embrace the graceful energy of the dragonfly to live life to the fullest and to appreciate Mother Earth’s gifts. ~ http://www.alexandani.com ~
Like the dragonfly, you too can change direction in your own life if you find yourself on the wrong path. It is never too late to become the person you want to be. I have been a lover of dragonflies for twenty years due to their beauty, elegance, and ability to change direction on a whim. I love that they are able to move forward, backward, sideways or stay in one place for any given moment in time. Many times when I am walking, kayaking, sitting in my yard, or on the deck the dragonflies seem to find me. While kayaking several will follow along as I row sometimes stopping to sit on my paddle, kayak or shoulder. It is quite beautiful. They began to show up in fabric, presents, stores, book covers, on walks, and in my yard and have remained a part of me whether I am home or traveling. They come in a variety of sizes and colors. My day is always brighter when I see a dragonfly and I shall look forward to spring when they return.
Do you have a symbol that speaks to you? I would love to hear what it is that seems to appear in your life to guide you along your path.
Love and Light,
