“A spirit which has ruled the energetic signature of pure metamorphosis for 325 million years… The Dragonfly is the doorway to earning your spiritual wings and becoming the powerful beauty that you are.”
Like the Praying Mantis, the Dragonfly is a powerful predator,but Dragonfly medicine is a trans-formative one. This medicine takes your infant spiritual state into account, it also knows of the power held within your own being. Dragonfly medicine assists with the metamorphosis from young nymph to a powerful teacher, healer and example to other nymphs that flight is possible.The Dragonfly is built to lead by example: It’s strength is incredible, its bright colors changing as the light does, and this is the biggest lesson that the Dragonfly will teach you when you are ready to enter into the phase of the spirit walker.
“Dragonflies are predators, both in their aquatic larval stage, when they are known as nymphs or naiads, and as adults. Several years of their lives are spent as nymphs living in fresh water; the adults may be on the wing for just a few days or weeks. They are fast, agile fliers, sometimes migrating across oceans, and often live near water.Wikipedia
First lesson of Dragonfly medicine acknowledgement of the nymph stage. Understanding your own self is paramount to the lesson of the nymph stage. Then, once you have completed the introspection, and can completely say that you know who you are within, you are to let it all go, and give in to your spiritual journey upon this planet. It is at this point that Dragonfly will show him/herself to you. Dragonfly medicine comes when you least expect it and when it does you will be completely sure that it is Dragonfly medicine speaking. A blindfold is required and a complete trust in the wind currents of spiritual evolution. There is no known grounding and there is no foundation that you can pinpoint with your nymph self. Home is now where the heart is.
Once you acknowledge the medicine, agree to take on the metamorphosis and earn your wings, you need to begin with a few / or a single elaborate cord cutting. You need to transform into your spiritual self and the only way to bring spirit down into this physical realm and truly walk that path is to LET GO of the nymph thinking and the nymph way of doing things. There is a Christian saying that goes very well with this process but with a twist: “Let go, and let God.” Dragonfly medicine says: “Let go, and let the inner spirit lead.” Your physical body and eyes especially will no longer be the most trustworthy things you have to follow, they will become mere tools on the path. Your busy mind will need to quieten down and the neurons will need to change course, firing on command of a spiritual intention and then you will begin the journey of the ‘flight into the light.’
We are all vibrations, we are all energy. The Dragonfly medicine is the greatest teacher in changing your vibrations and colors and becoming what is known as the spirit walker. You need to learn to vibrate higher and walk in spirit, but at the same time when the wind currents change and you need to lift the souls of a lower vibration or those who are entering into the path of Dragonfly medicine, you need to be able to vibrate alongside them and lead them into the light.
Dragonfly is the ultimate spiritual animal of the spirit walker. Ancient wisdom is carried in the evolution of this incredible being,and immense responsibility and grace comes along with it. If Dragonfly has fluttered into your mind’s eye, get ready to let go and let your inner spirit lead.
