What Do Dragonflies Symbolized?
Dragonflies symbolize CHANGE. They embody 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, of 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 symbolisms, 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 everytime 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 is 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 to be too tensed with life.

Our problems are mostly born from these or at least our ability to solve the problems before us get hindered by our inability to accept our emotions. When we feel that we are being hindered, when our self-growth get 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 in the spiritual perspective will inspire us to be the same, to fully embrace our own transformation and become more aware of our self as part of the divine realms.

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 and have 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 the gifts and blessings from the divine.
To be 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.
