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 have had two dreams recently where I saw a dragonfly in my bathrooms at home (and I am on the toilet). Both times it takes me by surprise and just appaears out of nowhere. In the first one it tries to fly up my nose and it gets stuck and i try to get it out and rip it in half (feel guilty even writing that!)

    The second dream which happened just last night it just appeared at the bottom of a towel...it was very big and a taupe/grey color

    Please let me know if you have any thoughts on what these mean or its trying to tell me?

    Thank you!

  • I dreamed last night about family members who had past. Before the dream was over my sisters and I were going through a drawer for things to keep and I pulled out a necklace with a dragonfly pendant for myself. The necklaces were all tangled but this one came out with ease. Does it mean anything :idea:

  • I found this by Googling "dragonfly meaning". I did this today because of a dream I had last night. There was a very large dragonfly with mixed black, brown, and golden colors, and it seemed like it was someone's pet. I have had an attraction to dragonflies as long as I can remember. I have had them land on me or on my possessions many times. Once I saw one flying around near me and I stretched out my right arm; it immediately landed on my hand. Another time I was biking in the woods, stopped before crossing a small stream, and a damselfly landed on my bike. I also had one fly alongside me while biking on a trail; I was surprised how long it stayed with me, matching my speed and direction.

  • :razz: I've carried Dragon Fly as a totem years ago and it has recently reappeared in place of the Butterflies I would get often. I went for a Meta Walk; a walk while contemplating spiritual ideas, and a Dragon fly flew right past me gauging my full attention. I'm at my desk at work and my computer faces the window. Our window is a double sided window, so folks on the outside see a mirror and folks on the inside get to see the reality. Several Dragonflies are now bumping their heads against the window, almost with a sense of trying to get inside the office. I'm open to an interpretation to what the Dragonfly is trying to get across to me.

  • dear Silken Raven

    I have just had the most beautiful. experience... around midday today, I was sitting outside, watching, feeling and absorbing the glorious sunlight, going within, though fully aware of what was happening around me, peace filled me and I sat quietly, then one red dragonfly came up to me, landed on my jumper down by my waist, I didnt move, it then flew away, so I carried on raising my vibrations, shortly another one came this time landing a little higher, under my breast, stayed awhile and the flew away, another one came and it had brought something to eat with it ;O) and proceeded to do just that, staying quite a while, my body from within started to vibrate at a very great speed as another one landed on my sleeve, we looked at each other, I sent LOVE and it started to clean itself ! the sun was starting to disappear, clouds moving in on it as the last one came and landed on my Heart .. how special how very special

    • You must be very special...
      The dragonflies I see, never land on me. I used to see butterflies everywhere, and I still do, but dragonflies are having their time, also, this period. I keep transforming into a very new and elevated being and there is still a long way to go...

  • Since my other passed a few months ago I have noticed dragonflies around me they seem to fly around and stay close to me or even my car or yard. Yesterday I had one fly by the windshield fly backwards and just hover near the center of my windshield once it was gone I backed out only to see it fluttering by my driver side window and follow me about 50 yards or so. What could these sightings mean?

  • I've had a dragonfly flitting around my back door when I left the house this morning. When I returned home, s/he was there again. Both times it almost landed on me and nearly flew inside my house. I am thinking about some changes I wish to make in my life over the coming year. Do you think s/he is a good omen? Thanks

    • Hi Mel - I would take that as a very good omen, that I'm on the right track with the changes I wish to make in my life.
      Dragonflies, for me, are about joy. The fact that it tried to come along with me and become part of my household is very positive (and exciting!).

    • Hello Caroline: The Dragonfly is letting you know that you can learn the most about yourself by paying attention to what is being reflected back at you through your peers, family and friends. If you see something you don't like in someone else - it is probably something you also dislike about yourself and vice versa. Use all of the tools available to you and you will grow in leaps and bounds.

    • Hello carli: Your Dragonfly is letting you know that you have to get out of your head in order to find your direction. Only your heart knows which way to go. Find something that gives you joy and explore it further - it may or may not be the right direction - but it will open the doors to more self discovery. You do not have to see the direction - just go.

    • Hello Cindy: If you have seen it - it was meant for you - especially since it is in your home. Yellow is the color of happiness. Think smiley faces and stay positive. Pay attention to the message in the quotation box when you return to this page.
