Dragonfly eggs are laid within their territory near the water. Once hatched, these
nymphs will live nearly two years on the bottom of streams and ponds. As they reach
adulthood an amazing thing occurs, they transform into dragonflies and ascend to the air.
In the air, they travel with wings that sparkle with spectacular colors by reflecting
and refracting light and other colors. No insect or bird can maneuver as well as a
dragonfly. Flying up to 30 mph, they will twist, turn, move up and down, fly backwards,
even change directions instantaneously and still will spot movement 40 feet away.
The power of Dragonfly lies in its ability to see around things by looking from
different angles. Using its ability to transform colors and lights by reflecting and
refracting them, Dragonfly shows us that life, like light, can bend, shift, and adapt
in various ways, making life's appearance never be what it appears to
be. Dragonfly's magic shows us to see through life's illusions and find our true vision.
It calls us to transform within our lives and reminds us to feel deeply so we will have
the compassion necessary to help ourselves and others.
