My son passed away 2 weeks ago today at the age of 21…I found your website and have learned a deeper understanding of these mystical creatures. I have been reading and I think my son is trying to communicate with me. I truly think he is tying to make me aware of the spirit and to look inside myself. For a deeper understanding. I am trying and know I in time will open my mind and soul to a deeper connection…How I know my son has directed me is that on the page where you have dragonfly symbolism, the date that it was created was his birthday. June 18.
I came across your website searching for the meaning of a red dragonfly. I have been visited by dragonflies before, but never stopping to realize why they were there…Today I am working through the loss of my husband. It will be one year and I am grieving… I walked up the stone steps and there on the rose bush sitting on one single red rose bud was the red dragonfly. I knew then that the message must be of love…. and then I knew that my husband’s love would always be with me…Thank you for your beautiful and powerful site. Prayers to all.
After reading all of these interesting stories, I realized that the dragonfly has had a great impact in my life…I never put it all together until now after reading all of these stories and what the dragonfly symbolizes. I needed change in my life. The dragonfly came to me that day in the backyard…I left my husband, got the tattoo, showed maturity, power. Now we are back together. He no longer controls me and we live in peace.
I feel that some positive force speaks to me through each dragonfly visit. I have seen them as I am going to have surgery, or going to many a doctor’s visit. Finding this site to help me understand the meaning of this has been very emotional, and I want to say, thank you. Going through this life changing journey was made more tolerable by the lovely visits by my new spirit guide, the dragonfly.
In September 2000 my husband passed away very suddenly…Couldn’t make myself go outside and sit by the pond. That was the last place I wanted to be because it reminded me so much of my wonderful husband and all the time we had spent together there. One day in mid-March I decided to venture to the pond/stream. I had been sitting there for about 20 minutes when a red dragonfly landed on my hand. From that moment on I knew I’d be okay and that my husband was sending me a message to go on with my life, that good changes were about to happen and I’d be happy.
Red dragonflies can be rare to view, and very special when the opportunity comes along. Yet, interestingly, they often appear to people surrounding life episodes of loss and death; perhaps a bit of an oxymoron that these lovely winged creatures are present at such times. But the meaning of red dragonfly includes both good and [...]
What does it mean to be a human being? Perhaps some people ask this question, and perhaps others do not. At some point, in some way, everyone, I think, asks this question. The answers will vary immensely from person to person. But what if there was just one answer, one truth, with which to understand [...]
When I was growing up as a girl on our Virginia farm, my father was always testing me to see if I remembered the names for different types of trees and birds. He took immense pleasure in watching the birds flock in the feeders outside the kitchen window, studying them in his piles of bird [...]
While the anticipated date of 2012 has come and gone with no apparent change, nothing could be further from the truth. Change is here with the enlightenment revolution in humanity’s evolution. Change is subtly happening in the revolving and evolving consciousness of every soul whether one is aware of it or not. As we move [...]
As humanity enters this New Year of 2014, I propose we focus on the possibilities not the probabilities. The world is in a constant, daily flux and change marked by the tendency to consider all the probable outcomes of our changing and chaotic times. Yet, the truth is no one really knows how the cards [...]
The human experience connects all of us together through our shared understandings of what it means to have a physical, mental and emotional body. Each one of us is the expression of the sum total of our physical, mental and emotional experiences in life; the total which ultimately defines our heart response and our capacity [...]
I have an art studio called Studio Bliss which I named in 1992 while living in my native home of Virginia. Over the years most people have tended to associate the bliss part of the name with the spiritual connotation, but in fact, the reason for this name did not originate there. I was living [...]
The current unrest and problems we face in the world have been exacerbated by the hidden workings of the shadow, both individually and collectively. Understanding the nature of our shadow is complicated by the fact that the individual shadow contributes to the collective shadow while the collective shadow greatly influences the individual shadow. This is [...]
There is an Intuit legend that tells the story of a Skeleton Woman. It is beautifully told by Clarissa Pinkola Estes in her book, Women Who Run With The Wolves. The story goes like this: A woman had been thrown into the sea by her angry, disapproving father, and in time became a skeleton [...]
To understand the secrets of ourselves and our cosmic universe is to understand the unseen forces of energy, frequency and vibration. Everything is energy, as Oprah once said, and everything has a unique frequency to which it vibrates. Every human being carries within them the evolutionary memories of humanity as well as their own current [...]
