Animals play a significant role in our lives in various ways. As long as humans have lived, animals have provided food, transportation, and companionship.
But beyond that, they are also a part of many cultures’ inspiration, beliefs, spirituality, and rituals.
For example, some believe animals are a messenger from the spiritual world or that they are the reincarnated souls of loved ones. For others, animals have a strong representation of specific human characteristics, qualities, or life journeys, and their presence can be a comfort during difficult times.
The Dragonfly has long been held as a sign of good things to come and a positive messenger. Have you seen a Dragonfly lately, or are you drawn to its presence? If so, many cultures believe that the Universe may be trying to communicate a specific message to you.
Before diving into this beautiful insect's symbolism, you may wonder if you have seen one before. They come in a variety of colours and patterns, but all Dragonflies have the following characteristics in common:
Many cultures have incorporated the dragonfly into their art and storytelling. Throughout human history, it has represented beliefs, carried omens, and delivered messages to those who understood its symbolism. Today, many still turn to spiritual representations of the dragonfly to connect to nature's power, provide meaning, and help navigate their journey on earth.
Here are some powerful meanings behind the dragonfly:
Do Not Resist Change. In many cultures, the Dragonfly symbolises great change and transformation. During our time on this planet, one thing you can know for sure is that change is constant. The Dragonfly is an excellent reminder to lean into it and be adaptable.
Welcome Good Fortune. Many people believe that the Universe brings something good your way if you are lucky enough to have a Dragonfly land on you.
Move with Balance and Stability. To some, the Dragonfly is the animal representation of a harmonious life. It spreads out its four long wings to provide stability and help the weather whatever life brings.
Be Open to Your Higher Self. The Dragonfly is revered by many as the symbol of an enlightened version of self. Your higher self is connected to the Spirit and a greater good, and many people believe that a visit from a Dragonfly is a message that you are on the right path.
Health and Wellbeing. In many cultures, a Dragonfly flying into the house means illness will pass and good health is coming your way.
Embrace a New Beginning. Unlike many other insects, dragonflies go straight from the larva stage to adulthood through a metamorphosis, leaving behind a cast of their former self. The Dragonfly’s intense transition is a reminder of the beauty within a spiritual rebirth and that a new and stronger self follows the pain and discomfort of growth.
