Dragonfly Medicine

Illusion is the lesson of Dragonfly

Dragonfly - Vintage look card
The colors in Dragonfly’s wings remind us of colors not found in our everyday life experience. The shifting of color, energy, form, and movement of dragonfly explodes into the mind of the observer.  It brings vague memories of a time when magic reigned.

Some believe that Dragonfly was once Dragon and that Dragon had scales like Dragonfly’s wings. Dragon was full of wisdom and flew through the night bringing light with its fiery breath.  The art of magic and the illusion of changing form were brought forth by the breath of Dragon.  Coyote tricked Dragon into changing form and the shape of its new body became like that of Dragonfly.

The winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communications from the elemental world are the essence of Dragonfly.  This elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants and the elements of air, earth, fire, and water.  This elemental world is full of nature spirits.

If Dragonfly has come to you today in a dream, physically crossed your path, or in some way has reached your thoughts; you may have forgotten to water your plants. On another level, you may need to give thanks to the foods you eat for sustaining your body.  On a psychological level, it might be time to break down the illusions you have held that restrict your actions or ideas.

The medicine of Dragonfly always beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which you need to change.  Have you lost a lot of weight or gained a lot of weight? Are you tending to the changes you have wanted to make in your life? Call on Dragonfly if you feel the need for change.  Brother Dragonfly will guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.

Is there a way to apply the art of illusion to your present question or situation?  Remember things are not always completely as they seem.
