The Life Cycle Of The Dragonfly
Dragonflies and damselflies are very ancient and have been around for 180 million years. Damselflies are more slender than dragonflies and when at rest they fold their wings; whereas the dragonflies wings hold their wings like a glider. Damselflies will land to eat while dragonflies eat while in flight. Both can spot movement 40 feet away with their large eyes.
Andrews explains that when a dragonfly shows up in your life during emotional or passionate times. Dragonflies help us balance both with greater mental clarity. If a dragonfly shows up in your life, you may need to gain a new perspective or make a change. It could mean that you are neglecting your emotions. Because dragonflies start their life in water, and spend up to two years as a nymph, this can reflect that you are coming into a two year period of transformation.
Dragon flies clean their eyes with special combs on their legs and by collecting water drops in their mouth. Their biggest predators are birds and frogs. People with dragonfly totems should also study the frog. Dragonflies are only out during the day because they are cold blooded so they need the warmth of the sun. For those with Dragonfly Totems, spending time outdoors in the sun near water sources will be beneficial for restoring and changing health conditions for the better.
Some dragonflies have color but most colors are caused almost the same way that a rainbow is formed. Structures in their shell scatter and refract the light, making them look iridescent green and blue. As they age they may go through several color changes.. Their ability to reflect and change color is associated with magic.
Dragonflies are often depicted in Japanese paintings, representing new light and joy. To some Native Americans they represent the soul of the dead. Some stories speak of a time when they used to be real dragons. Fantastic creatures of the Faerie Realm often come in many shapes and sizes. Dragonflies, because they are mythical relatives of the ancient dragons, are wonderful links to working with nature spirits.
Dragonflies remind us that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways, if we chose to do so. “Let there be Light” is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life. Dragonflies can help you see through the illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth.
