Why a Dragonfly?
Why do I use a dragonfly for the logo on my Whimsy Within website? It represents lightness of being and transformation to me. I have always been attracted to dragonflies, but the intensity increased when I became ill. I was told to expect a long 2 year recovery. I used to be a somewhat high energy, scattered type of person. As I age though, I'm becoming more calm and peaceful with a mental clarity that I'm very grateful to possess. I'm just generally very grateful everyday for everything I have in my life. Life is so short, and I'm trying to enjoy every moment to the fullest. I think I owe it all to the connection I have with my lil friend Dragonfly.
Dragonfly: Illusion, the Power of Light
Dragonfly is the power of light. The dragonfly inhabits two realms: air and water and the influence of both these elements will be felt by Dragonfly people. They will be emotional and passionate during their early years (the influence of water) and more balanced with greater mental clarity and control in as they mature (the influence of air).
Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment; and the communication from the elemental world. Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which need changing. Call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.
The number 2 is important to Dragonfly, so think in terms of two year periods when you begin a change. Dragonfly brings the light and color of transformation into your life.
