A magnificent Dragonfly Crop Circle appeared in the fields of Little London, near Yatesbury on the 3rd of June 2009. Quite synchronistically the day before yesterday, on the 2nd of June my friends Vikas & Nitin were reminiscing how they used to catch these 'Dragonflies' or 'Helicopters' as they were referred to when they were kids ... a day later on the 3rd of June, the same day the Dragonfly crop circle appeared, Nitin had a lucid dream about reading my blog which surprised even Nitin because he doesn't quite frequent this space and has little interest in the Esoteric or the Metaphysical ... Maybe now he will ! :) Thanks to our friends in their 'Helicopters' the world gets to witness these amazing crop circles, feel the magic of sacred art and be a part of the transformation, the metamorphosis of consciousness underway now ....
Dragonfly eggs are laid within their territory near the water. Once hatched, these nymphs will live nearly two years on the bottom of streams and ponds. As they reach adulthood an amazing thing occurs, they transform into dragonflies and ascend to the air. In the air, they travel with wings that sparkle with spectacular colors by reflecting and refracting light and other colors. No insect or bird can maneuver as well as a dragonfly. Flying up to 30 mph, they will twist, turn, move up and down, fly backwards, even change directions instantaneously and still will spot movement 40 feet away.
The power of Dragonfly lies in its ability to see around things by looking from different angles. Using its ability to transform colors and lights by reflecting and refracting them, Dragonfly shows us that life, like light, can bend, shift, and adapt in various ways, making life's appearance never be what it appears to be. Dragonfly's magic shows us to see through life's illusions and find our true vision. It calls us to transform within our lives and reminds us to feel deeply so we will have the compassion necessary to help ourselves and others.
The animal symbolism of the dragonfly deals with:
These symbolic meanings of dragonfly are particularly associated in Asian (Japan) and Native American (Plains region) circles.
As a creature of the wind, the dragonfly totem represents change. It's iridescent wings are incredibly sensitive to the slightest breeze, and so we are reminded to heed where the proverbial wind blows - lest we run into stormy weather.
Dragonflies are also creatures of the water, and any creature whose habitat is in, or around water carries symbolism relative the the subconscious, or "dreaming" mind and thoughts.
This is because in the animal world, water is symbolic of the subconscious mind ("deeper mind," "dreaming mind") and relates to the thoughts we have in relaxed/meditative/sleeping/subconscious states.
Dragonflies carry messages that deal with deeper thought - and they ask that we pay attention to our dreams, deeper thoughts and desires.
