“The dragonfly reminds us to embrace change…living life to its fullest. It leaves the underwater world it has called home for years to live at the whim of the winds in its brief time as a beautiful flying being.” – Author Unknown
“”The dragonfly spiritually embodies the stripping away of negativity that holds us back, helping us to achieve our dreams and goals. Dragonflies are the keepers of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability. Dragonflies inspire spirituality and creativity, they help us on the path of discovery and enlightenment. They reminder us that anything is possible.” – Beauty and the Green
“The dragonfly exhibits iridescence both on its wings as well as on its body. Iridescence is the property of an object to show itself in different colors depending on the angle and polarization of light falling on it.This property is seen and believed as the end of one’s self created illusions and a clear vision into the realities of life. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity. This again indirectly means self discovery and removal of inhibitions.” –Dragonfly-site.com
“Blessed. Surrounded by every opportunity in the world.
“Granted to meet in life that which can revitalize and restore and reawaken what was lost, stuck, stopped.
“Given a charge of inner worlds power. A prana of life-giving essence to offer into the most obdurate situations hope and enthusiasm.
“Not put off by coming up against tremendous outward and inward stuff to cut through. Just knowing there is a force, there is a way somehow.
“Bearing a treasure that is priceless. Offered the keys to the kingdom.
“It is simply a matter of calibrating the Living Spirit in all things as supreme. Yet there is something in this worship, in this ritual that is more than the simple basic model would suggest.
“We are here entering upon the mystery of soul remembrance. What does it mean when we can recall in a fragrant fashion all good and essential things and we never can forget them?
“What does it do for us when we immerse ourselves over and again in especially painful and enduring lessons and repetitive experience, yet all throughout we feel and know inside that we can come through and that everybody can come through?
“What this does is to tap a storehouse of spirit spark that is right here available whenever we are ready to surrender to it’s depth of power.
“Usually, we must first exhaust every other way of dealing with what is at hand. Only then do we remember the prayer, the vision, the promise…
“It is a rhythm, a pulse, a knack. Once you get it, you can’t lose it. Then you know the New Birth in all things.”
This new moon in Sagittarius brought up a lot of old wounds and pain for me that still tenaciously cling to the here and now. It happened when I was least expecting it. Thoughts such as, “I have shown up for what I want to grow and expand in my life.” or “I have done the inner work.” placed a perfect fitting mask upon my face that I forgot who I am. Somewhere along the line I got a little lost in some idealistic vision of myself. The intensity of my inner suffering knocked me to the ground like all the fallen leaves and layers of bark upon the forest floor. Though I thought I have been facing reality, I now humbly realize that there are still areas of my life that need the continuation of healing. Instead of thinking negatively about repeating karmic patterns, I choose to mindfully walk through these experiences. I surrender to the mystery of Spirt Essence. My ancestors would call it the Great Spirit. Opening again to the self-love, the experience of I AM. In each breath…being in communion of spirit.

The clouds jutted upward like mountains from the flatland rolling at the horizon in shades of lavender, smokey-blue, and silver- white. Birches huddled together like naked ladies in the wind.
Gaea adorned herself in a soft-blue gown of billowing chiffon for the dance of new beginnings. Gifting mortals who have the power to look deeply with a glimpse of clarity.
The sun kissed her face of many colours. Nourishing her wounds and scars as well as her abundant bounty.
It is in her nature to be fiercely harsh and even destructive, yet she is also known to shield and nurture all of life. Thus, she weaves magic under hard, crusted furrows touched by winter’s frosty tears.
