Angel Sign – Dragonfly

You’d think that such small insects as dragonflies couldn’t possibly hold so much meaning and symbolism about them.


More than being part of nature, dragonflies bring more meaning to our life than we can ever imagine.


When you watch and observe the gracefulness of the dragonflies darting, floating, and dancing through the air, past tall grasses, you’ll see how they bring light to the world and it reflects in their wings, their purpose, and their grace.


Unbeknownst to most people, dragonflies possess interesting meanings and history connected to the various culture and traditions of the human race woven into folklore and stories.


Needless to say, dragonflies are considered ancient creatures since they were some of the first winged insects that evolved 300 million years ago. It was the Greeks who gave them the name Odanates literally meaning “toothed one” due to the belief that they crush their prey with their teeth.


But the most noticeable thing about the dragonflies is the fact that they are expert fliers, they can easily fly straight up and down, and maneuver smoothly in the air. They would even meet in the air.


With their amazing qualities and characteristics, dragonflies are used by your angels to catch your attention so you can receive the important messages they are relaying to you.


They are our spiritual guides and their great abilities to maneuver in the air and in all conditions teach us to have the confidence to easily navigate through life and all its challenges.


Dragonflies symbolize change – most especially the change in one’s perspective of things and in how one should focus on self-realization.


Dragonflies also hold the importance of maturity, accepting the needed change, and seeing beyond the material world. Maturity is crucial to one’s ability to change one’s life as well as his perspective of things.


The physical attributes of the dragonflies symbolize the grace and confidence with which one should strive to have as we live life trying to fulfill our purpose.


More than all these symbolism, Dragonflies should be seen as one of the greatest spiritual guides of humans.


When you look back through it, dragonflies bring us lightness and joy every time we see them. When we were younger, seeing dragonflies made us want to run and chase them, to have fun just following them, watching them as they flew overhead and the joy it brings is etched in our memories.


That is why, these days, dragonflies appear before you when your angels notice that your joy and light are decreasing when you forget to enjoy yourself because you are too serious and too focused on various things. Seeing a dragonfly is a message from your angels to lighten your mind and change your restricting habits and not be too tensed with life.


It could also be that you are trying hard to adapt to a new environment, like a new workplace, or a new relationship. The dragonflies will guide you, just let its energy from the divine envelop you with flexibility so you can easily acclimatize yourself to your new surroundings.


Undeniably, there will be times when we find it hard to acknowledge our emotions let alone accept them. Our problems are mostly born from these or at least our ability to solve the problems before we get hindered by our inability to accept our emotions. When we feel that we are being hindered, when our self-growth gets prevented because of this, the angels help us by sending dragonflies and their glorious energy of embracing and understanding the emotional aspect of our being.


Dragonflies symbolize transformation and adaptability and looking at dragonflies from a spiritual perspective will inspire us to be the same, to fully embrace our own transformation, and become more aware of ourselves as part of the divine realms.


What does it mean when dragonflies cross your path?

When you start to notice dragonflies around you more often, it is a sign from the angels telling you that now is the right time to embrace your transformation and growth. 


The angels are letting you work with the energy of the dragonflies by acknowledging the symbolisms and inspiration they bring to your life. 


When you let yourself be touched and get enveloped in the energy of the dragonflies, you will find it easier to see life maturely, to assess your emotions correctly and accept them instead of letting them fester inside of you and overcome your life and your choices.


The angels are gifting you with the dragonflies so you can have the clarity to work with and through your emotions.


When you start your transformation, guided by the angels through the dragonflies, you can begin by meditating to delve into your self-awareness, immersing in the energy of the natural elements and ultimately understanding each emotion deep inside you.


Let the image of the dragonfly burn in your mind, visualize it, and feel its symbols make a mark inside you. You can feel its transformative and strong energy and you can start raising your vibration to align with this energy.


Moreover, you can always ask the dragonflies to help you navigating through difficult situations and circumstances. 


Their energy will help you adapt smoothly. They will open your mind and your eyes so you can find different perspectives about things you are feeling stuck with. Developing a new perspective about things will show you more facets about it, you will see all the possible alternatives, you will have better choices, and you will understand it better unhindered by one point of view.


Through the dragonflies, your angels are giving you confidence to go through life so you will not be held back by any negative energies or negative thoughts.


Aside from all of these, from all the symbols that the dragonflies bring, the most important aspect of these insects as spiritual guides for humans lies in the fact that they live a short life span. 


Accordingly, dragonflies only live for seven months. In this relatively short amount of time, the dragonflies have already completed its natural life, done what it’s meant to do. 


Because of this, we are being taught a very important lesson – a lesson that most people neglect because of the false sense of a longer lifespan, the idea that there is still time left and that is to live life fully present. 


The dragonfly is a reminder that we must be conscious of the present as much as we think about the future, maybe more. The present is where we find gifts and blessings from the divine. 


Being aware of the present means you will find the beauty of life more clearly, you can see the future with lightness and joy. You will become more thankful for every breath of fresh air, for every raindrop, for every step you can still take.


And with this amazing gratitude for life, you will receive more, you will become more.
