Dragonfly Meaning and Messages

When Dragonfly symbolism flits into your world, she is asking that you pay attention to your deeper desires. With this in mind, you should also be mindful of the outcome that you wish to have. In other words, there are lessons to be learned, and “what you think” is directly proportionate to what you “see on the surface.”  As a result, this spirit animal shows you that your thoughts are responsible for your physical surroundings. Thus, your Dragonfly meaning tells you that you must move through these illusions and “think” your dreams into reality.

Alternatively, this Dragonfly symbolism may also be letting you know that you should live your life to the fullest with what you have. Like the Pug, It is also important to realize that you should seek the habits that need changing. Only then can you manifest an abundant life. With this in mind, use this totem to guide you through the illusion and toward the pathway of transformation. Dragonfly symbolism will bring the light and color of change into your life.

The Dragonfly symbolism may also be letting you know that it is time for you to make that decision that you have been putting off and move on it. Like the Hyena, opportunities are only available for a limited period and, the one you have been nervous about jumping into is quickly closing its doors. Occasionally, when one of these insects land on you, it is an omen of things to come. In this case, the Dragonfly meaning foretells extreme good luck.

Dragonfly Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Dragonfly totem, represent the power of light. Moreover, those with this totem can inhabit two realms, both air and water. To clarify, the influence of both these elements will be felt by you regularly. Since this totem is the essence of the winds of change, you will find your life filled with many upheavals, both positive and negative.  Like the Owl, you are also a messenger of wisdom that brings enlightenment to others. The Dragonfly totem person also receives communication from the elemental world. People with this spirit animal totem have an abundance of Good Luck and, therefore, are always in the right place at the right time.

Like the Cow, folks with this totem have mastered mysticism and magic. They are very good at what they do, and they do it repeatedly. People with this insect as their spirit animal utilize light to create illusions and to transform consciousness. They are always ready to handle the future. Therefore, they continually seek knowledge and wisdom.

Dragonfly Dream Interpretation

When you have a Dragonfly dream, it usually symbolizes change and regeneration. You have learned to balance your emotional body with your mental body. It may also indicate that something in your life may not appear as it seems or is an illusion. Alternatively, the dream can also represent instability, flightiness, or activity. You are always on the go.

To dream that you are eating this creature suggests that a passion consumes you even at the risk of offending or hurting other’s feelings.

Alternatively, a Dragonfly dream can signify that you hold some false beliefs and perceptions. The activities that you are currently engaged in are ill-considered and present you as unreliable and irresponsible. At this moment, things are not what they seem, and your downfall is imminent. Like the Wasp, you need to take a closer look at things, look beyond what you perceive, and clear out emotional distortions.

An iridescent rainbow-colored insect of this type signals an emerging inner light. Like the Seal, you are now able to express your creative imagination and insight. Now is a time of healing and transformation for you. Moreover, it signifies a new elevation of consciousness.

  • Hi I'm Jeff,
    I just want to know about the meaning of my dream and I just dream it today(Aug 6, 2021), afternoon at 4 pm Philippine time. My dream goes like this:
    I'm about to enter our house but the house was our old house when I'm young, suddenly I saw insects and that insect looks like a bee but kind of big and round, covered in black with two white stripes on its butt, I'm mesmerized with its appearance it looks cute and adorable like a "pokemon" kind of creature. I decided to pick it up but unfortunately, it gives evil smile and wrap upon my hands like handcuffs, it body change into painful handcuffs with a tiny needle surrounding my hand that hurt me so much then my consciousness alarm me that insects hate smoke so I run and look for any smoke. The place change and turn to like a hotel, concrete, big and kind of dark then I saw a small straight long smoke, I didn't see any trace of fire but just a straight thin smoke so I place my hands in the smoke then the bee-like creature reacts shouting and fighting and in return hurt me more but I didn't give up, I endure the pain and suddenly it set me free and disappear. When it's gone, I'm in front of our house again. When I'm about to enter, other insects attack me but this time not hurting me but cuddling and attach to me like ducktape, I tried to remove it but I can't, my neighbors and my mother tried also to remove it but still they can't. I tried to remove it because it fell gross then I remember what I did to the first insect and ask the neighbor for a matchstick or flame, then he grabs matchsticks and lighted them. Then the insect that looks like a dragonfly but is very big is almost half of my size got afraid and loosen me so I take the opportunity to push it away and I did it. I go out of our backyard running towards our neighbor's backyard then I saw smoke because it seems like I saw my neighbor grilling something and for sure it still have smoke. When I arrived at his backyard the house is empty no one was there only smoke remain from his bonfire. I rush into the smoke grab it massage it in my whole body, in my neck,arms, face because I saw the insect from our backyard trying to go near me again so I decided to cover myself with a smoke smell so that it will not attack me again and I realize why the insects keep attacking me because I smell good so when I smell the smoke it smells awful like a fish stink smell.
    Then I woke up.
    I hoper you can help to understand my dream because rarely had a dream, especially during broad daylight.

  • Dragonflies, I've always loved them. My son passed away this summer at the age of 24 from a 5 year battle with brain cancer. I was sitting on my desk after he passed and saw many dragonflies in my back yard. i spoke to my son and said I need to know you are ok, you know I love dragonflies please have one land on me and I will know you can hear me. I never told anyone of this. The first time one landed on me it was on my leg and a friend commented on it. The second time one landed by me was on my new grandson's stroller as I was taking him for a walk. The third and most amazing experience was in September I was sitting by a lake where I find peace. A common green darner hovered by me and landed on my face. My friend asked where my camera is and he couldn't find it in my backpack so I had him hand me the backpack and I finally found it. He took several pictures of the dragonfly on my face. It stayed there for over 5 minutes. It was then I could tell my story to my family. I have a new Christmas decoration with my son and the dragonfly on my face. I'm a true believer that my son was behind the dragonfly encounters.

  • As I am sitting in the living room right now, feeling deppressed from having no money and from borrowing a lot of money to send to someone so he could get out of trouble, there was a flying dragonfly above at the ceiling and stayed in the center light bulb. Casually would fly and stay put. I don't know what is the meaning of the dragonfly showing up at this certain of time in my life. Please help me.

  • This has been going on for a week now, butterflies of all colors, dragonflies in big groups and crickets. I went outside and sat. The dragonflies were doing fancy flights in front of me. I wonder what is going on.

  • I got hit on the crown (right on the center parting of my pigtails, so it was tail to scalp) by a dragonfly at the age of 5. In the past six months I've come across so much imagery of them, after 20years of fearing them. I am on a spiritual transition, but does it mean anything?

  • I am so thankful I came across this website. I have noticed for the past few weeks each time I step outside, a dragonfly has been near. It gave me a good feeling as these animals are soo beautiful. I am recovering from a bad heartbreak from my ex bf of 12 years and I think that these dragonflies are telling me it is time to let go and live. Forgive and move on, I am doing that. I forgive and I am going to live now. Thank you soooo much for creating this website.

    • Can’t stop thinking about this dragonfly I found laying half dead at the shop at work. I picked it up took it outside in the woods and gave it water. The next day it was in the shop again but this time it was dead. Don’t know if someone killed it when it came back, but can’t hep to think that maybe it was a sign. Hope not a bad omen.

      • I don't think it was a bad omen. I also do not think the dragonfly was killed by somebody. They only have a short lifespan, and towards September and October their life comes to an end. In a spiritual approach to your experience I tend to say the Fates "sent" a dying dragonfly to that very place - the one who showed compassion will be rewarded, maybe not now, maybe not in the closer future, but at a certain time. I think that the dragonfly "came back" (albeit it was dead) is a sign for you that tells you "Your gift has been accepted, we will not forget it."

  • Enjoyed reading all the beautiful experiences.
    Yesterday afternoon walking to the back patio below my bedroom
    window was this beautiful dragonfly. Unfortunately its life had ended and is still in tact. Would love to keep because it is so
    beautiful. I am not sure how to go about preserving .
    Does anyone know?

  • I don’t know if anyone still reads these pages or not, but I thought I would share and see if anyone had any insights.

    These past few weeks, I have seen so many dragonflies flying around in my backyard. They are all so beautiful, and they don’t seem to be too intimidated by me being out there with them. I have had a few land within a couple of feet of me, or less at times, and would sit with me for several long moments.
    This afternoon, for about an hour, I had one in particular that would land on my finger, fly away from time to time only to come right back. So, essentially, he let me hold him for about an hour. He was a beautiful powder blue color, and I had even managed to get up and walk across the yard with him while he stayed with me.

    I don’t know if this means anything or not, but it was such a peaceful and beautiful moment...in my opinion. I guess I felt blessed that he trusted me as much as he (or she) did. :)

  • I was so happy to have discovered this site and then to have read all these comments. The experiences people have had only affirm to me that I had a very magical experience with dragonfly one year ago when I was on a Vision Quest. I thought I would share it here because of all the beautiful shares I read.

    On the third day of my solo, fasting and being in nature with only a sleeping bag and water, I was cooling myself in a river, sitting in the stream with my right thigh exposed. As I was simply enjoying the coolness of the water, the sound of the wind, and the contrasting heat of the sun, a pair of coupling dragonflies appeared and landed on my exposed thigh. The image of coupling dragonflies is that of a heart and in that moment there were two pairs. They sat on my thigh for a long time--I really have no concept of how long. When I remember this image of a pair of coupling dragonflies on my leg, what comes to me is two heart-shaped eyes opening my vision to heart--mine and others.

  • I belong to a Facebook group called "I Love Dragonflies" and I decided to share a personal story with this group. After thinking about it - I decided to share this story with my Facebook friends as well. Here goes

    For most of my life - I have had a passion for dragonflies, and I see them as being magical creatures with a spiritual quality about them. My late husband got caught up in my enthusiasm and came to love dragonflies as well. Twelve years ago, at the end of May, he passed away. The morning after he died - I was sitting on my porch steps, making calls to family and friends. When I finished with my phone calls, I laid down my cell phone and sat with my hands resting on my knees with my fingers loosely intertwined. As I sat there, feeling my grief - a very very large all black Dragonfly landed gently on my index finger. I could feel his delicate feet wrap around my finger - and I caught my breath with a wave of both amazement and joy. I believed at that moment - that this beautiful Dragonfly held a piece of my husband's soul. I have never stopped believing it.

    • Beautiful Suzanne Seeman

      I am responding because I just an Electric Blue Dragonfly for the First Time that I am living here, which is 20 years.

      I have very many magical stories with Dragonflies. Far too many to share here.

      What I will share is that when Saint Germain stayed with us in 2015, He made sure to tell us that His totem is the Dragonfly!

      Your story is truly beautiful and touches my soul deeply.

      May all your days be beautiful and filled with Divine Love!

      In divine friendship

    • I was in a really bad car accident in 2017. It happened about 7 months in to a 2 year work visa on a Caribbean island. My grandfather had passed away the year before.
      I'll always remember being rolled on a gurney from the ambulance to the trauma room, watching the lights pass by, hearing all the medical jargon I was vaguely familiar with, seeing all those random faces peering down at me, floating in and out of consciousness.
      But what I remember more than anything, was the big black and green Dragonfly that flew over my head while I was being pushed down that hall. I remember saying to it: "ooh hey Granddad" because somehow I just knew that Dragonfly was my Granddad and I would be ok.
      I have chills and tear up a bit as I write this... I broke both of my legs and 1 arm. I was in the hospital for 3 months.
      14 months later, I can walk almost normally and I am graduating from school in April.
      I feel like he manifests all the time in the form of different animals and insects, to teach me things. (Coyote, praying mantis, most commonly a rabbit)
      But I'll never forget that first encounter with the Dragonfly.

  • I have dragonflys around me all the time. They hover in front of me all the time. When I'm driving or in the passengers seat they hover in front of the windshield. They come in and out of my garage when I'm there. When I'm gardening they are around me pretty close. And today I had one touch my arm. They have always been around me for years now, and doesn't matter where I am they always show up all the time. My daughter calls me dragonfly lady cause when I show up so do the dragonflys, and it's always 1 to 4 of them. I know they are spirits and it comforts me, but i want to know what it means..thank you

  • Dragonfly, Tsikenon'waristak, always speaks to me of my beloved friend, whose Spirit Animal is Dragonfly, Libellule in French, Boochikwanishi in Ojibwe, her ancestors’ languages. Dragonfly speaks to us of the magic that exists in the everyday world. How can you not see this magic in a Dragonfly? How can you not see a miracle in the beauty and the impossible flight of a Dragonfly? Whether you believe in a Creator or Creators or in Natural Selection, how can you not be in awe of the mere fact that the Dragonfly exists. Life is magic, no matter what you believe is in control, if anything at all. Friendship is magic. Love is magic. If we see this, even if we see this only once in a while, if we see Dragonfly in all of her beauty and majesty, how can we not be filled with the very awe of existence? And if we feel this awe, even if only for very rare moments, how can the petty little things that we call problems matter as much as we seem to think that they do?

  • Dragonfly stopped in mid-flight in front of my parked car, turned and hovered facing me eye-to-eye. What?!! Are you going to attack my windshield again? I gazed at the insect. It flew an inch towards me, then back, still hovering. Then it flew away. No storm warning this time. Yellow butterflies keep crossing in front of my car everyday this week.

    • On Wednesday, I was stopped in traffic and a dragonfly hovered in front of me on the drivers side of my vehicle. It stayed for 10-15 seconds and then flew away. I was not around any water and this caught me completely off guard, but it was so cool!!! It made me want to google and see if there was some meaning behind it or if anyone else had ever experienced this too! What does it mean?!?!
