What messages or predictions will come up from mesmerizing Dragonfly, this period's animal spirit guide? (Drawn from our Medicine Cards ) Drop me a note and let me know how these insights work for you.

DRAGONFLY – Illusion, Mesmerize, All Potential, True Self, the Power of Light

Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communications from the elemental world. Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the part of your habits which you need to change… if you are wanting change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.

Dragonfly has the ability to reflect and refract light and colors and is often associated with magic and mysticism. Just as light can bend and shift and be adapted in a variety of ways, so can the archetypal forces associated with dragonfly. It conveys the message that life is never what it appears to be.

Dragonfly's wings can mesmerize us, altering our consciousness and taking us into a shimmering world. This is the realm of the soul. Dragonfly's first teaching is to make space for mystery. Dragonfly's ability to reflect and refract light and colour connects with many forms of magic and mysticism – including colour magic, illusion – causing others only to see what you wish… Dragonfly magic is the power of light and all that has ever been associated with it.

If we remain locked in our rational mind, we lose touch with our heart, soul and spirit. Dragonfly encourages us to see the illusions that define us. Let him guide you to the forgotten part of your soul so that an understanding of your true self can begin to emerge.

Dragonfly often hovers in one place… from this still center he can move up, down, backward, forward, left, right… these are the seven directions of the sky, earth, east, south, west north and center. This shows that dragonfly is the keeper of potential. He begins his life in the water and then goes through a long process of transformation before emerging in his full magnificence. He teaches us that we can pursue our dreams. Realizing our true potential, in a way that also benefits other people is the ultimate expression of the power of dragonfly. By helping a person see through illusion dragonfly awakens one's true vision. Flying at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour they can spot movement forty feet away. Flying into and around things from different angles, they challenge rigid awareness and prompt the energy of change for anyone who holds this medicine.

Dragonflies are ancient – perhaps around for more than 180 million years. They have a beautiful, jewel-like coloring… the bright colours take time to develop, reflecting the idea that with maturity our own true colours come forth – this is part of dragonfly medicine. As newly hatched nymphs, dragonflies live on the bottom of ponds and streams. As they mature and go through metamorphosis they move to the realm of air. Since water represents the emotional body and air represents the mental, those with this medicine will often find themselves trying to maintain balance between their thoughts and emotions… Children with dragonfly medicine are often very emotional. They feel things deeply and respond to situations with great passion. As they reach adulthood, and through experience, they learn how to balance their emotions with greater mental clarity and control. This gives them the compassionate quality necessary for any type of work relating to healing or counseling.

Dragonfly Medicine teaches you to use the sounds and frequencies that balance your emotional body and heals your physical form. When Dragonfly appears it could be a reminder to water your plants. or to give thanks for the food you eat… or it may be time to break down the illusions you hold that restrict your actions or ideas.

Dragonfly is extremely difficult to catch, and this ability, combined with his astonishing swiftness and accuracy when he hunts insects in the air, makes him a superior warrior. If you need help with battles you are fighting or with goals you want to accomplish, call on dragonfly.

Because dragonfly remains as a nymph in the water for two years before it transforms into an adult dragonfly, it's appearance can indicate that a two-year period of change is about to culminate…. or that you are coming into a two year period of transformation…

They represent new light and joy… to some, they represent the souls of the dead… When Dragonfly appears, look for change to occur… Dragonflies remind us that we are light and can reflect light in powerful ways if we choose… "Let there be Light" is the divine prompting to use creative imagination as a force within your life. This is part of what Dragonfly teaches.

Life is never quite the way it appears, but it is always filled with light and colour. Dragonfly can help you to see through your illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth. Dragonfly brings the brightness of transformation and the wonder of colorful new vision.

Dragonfly tells us a little of what we might expect this week:

Dragonfly suggests that in this period, you may need some fresh air in regard to something emotional. You may need to gain a new perspective or make a change. It can even be an indication that you have been neglecting your emotions. Are you being too rational about almost everything? Are you not keeping the colour of emotions alive? Dragonfly's appearance tells you to work on finding a balance between your emotional and mental selves.

Pay attention to what transpires this week – you could be ending a two year cycle of change – or beginning one… and watch for some interesting mysteries to arise in this time.

The key words for this time might be "Get Real!" Dragonfly's influence moves us to look past the illusions that tend to hold us in place… this is the time to remove those rose-coloured glasses and see what IS as opposed to what you want to believe…

Be prepared for changes now, changes which could take a few years to complete – but which have the potential for triggering real transformation in your life.
