Dragonfly - The Power of Light
Dragonfly’s magic is the power of light and all that has ever been associated with it.
Dragonflies are very ancient with estimates of having been around for 180 million years. They have a beautiful jewel-like coloring. The bright colors take time to develop, reflecting the idea that with maturity are own true colors come forth.
Dragonflies are often depicted in Japanese paintings, representing new light and joy. They remind us that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so. “Let there be light” is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life.
Life is never quite the way it appears, but it is always filled with light and color. Dragonfly can help you to see through your illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth. Dragonfly brings the brightness of transformation and the wonder of colorful new vision.
