Dragonflies and You!

Dragonflies and You!

123 Comments

In this post, we’ll take a look at the Dragonfly. A very powerful little being that has always reminded me of faeries.

The dragonfly has always played a big role in old religions and beliefs. Everyone from the Vikings to the celts, to the Native Americans worshipped Dragonflies.


What does the dragonfly symbolize?

The thing that makes dragonflies so unique and special is that they have very short lives. They don’t have any time to waste, so when they are near you, you can bet they have a VERY good reason.

Usually, they are there to tell you something important. If you are very stressed, always thinking about the past or what you need to do, chances are that a dragonfly will pay you a visit.

It’ll be there to tell you, that you should remember to be in the moment and maybe that you need to change some things in your life.

Also, when you are in a bad relationship, wasting your time at work or worry too much, they like to pay a visit to tell you about how you can change and make a transformation in your life.

Here’s some common meanings of the Dragonfly:

  • Change and transformation
  • Adaptability
  • Joy, lightness of being
  • Symbol of the realm of emotions, invitation to dive deeper into your feeling
  • Being on the lookout for illusions and deceits, whether are external or personal
  • Connection with nature’s spirits and fairies

What does it mean when a dragonfly is near you?

    A Dragonfly will usually communicate with you, by being in your presence. Again, remember that their lives are very short, so if they take the time to be near you, it is because it’s important. They don’t waste their time!

    If you don't live in a place where dragonflies naturally are, you might find that you start to dream about them or suddenly see Dragonfly merchandise everywhere.

    It’s a pretty odd phenomena, but it happens more often than you would think.

    It’s usually just another way for them to communicate with you.

    So, what does it mean when you suddenly have dragonflies following you or when you start to see them in your dreams?

    Again, a dragonfly is usually all about transformation, change and being present in the moment.

    So, if you suddenly see them all over, it’s probably because you are getting caught up in the past or spend you time worrying over stuff you shouldn't worry about (like things you cannot control anyway).

    See it as a sign that you need to wake up. That you should cherish your life. Every single moment.

    Life is extremely short and you shouldn't waste it by worrying about things you cannot change or have no control over. Live live fully and enjoy yourself. Adapt to new situation and change and don’t get stuck in the past.

    What if there is no Dragonflies around?

    Even if you live at a place where there isn’t any dragonflies or if they never come to you, you can still make use of their power by wearing a dragonfly pendant or having merchandise (I believe a pendant is better because you can have it on you at all times).

    A dragonfly pendant might not be as “in your face” as a real life dragonfly, but if you let it, it will serve as a reminder to be joyful and be in the now (or whatever you are dealing with where a dragonfly can help).

    A pendant can also be a good companion for when you are trying to make some changes in your life. It will help you with new beginnings, creating new and better habits and sticking to them.

    Summary

    • Dragonflies don't waste time. If you see them near you, there is a reason for it.
    • You cannot summon dragonflies, but a dragonfly pendant can give you some of the same benefits as a real life dragonfly.
    • Dragonflies will tell you to live you life and remind you not to waste it. They will tell you to be joyful and to make the most out of every moment. Sometimes, that requires you to make some hard choices and to change your lifestyle.

    What’s your experience with dragonflies?

    When was the last time you saw one and why do you think that was?

    I had a dragonfly come into my home at 2:37 am and scare the bejeezus out of me. I thought I got him out but he was still there playing dead and the kitchen floor and suddenly flying low he left through the open door. Then around 10:40am I was driving and there was another one trying to get my attention and following my car. I had to look this up and every single thing resonated with where I am right now in my life. Thank you.

    Been trying to make different decisions about the rest of my life. I have loved these all my life I have a few around me every day. It might silly but I talk to them they say on limbs or my flower pots and watch. Maybe they are helping me to decide what to do

    I ride my bicycle at a local lake for about an hour and a half to two hours. I just got back and had at least 10-15 dragonflies approach me . Some hovered within a foot or two of my face. This happens all the time, They fly in front of me, over me, beside me. Would like to know what it means. If you can shed some light on it, would be appreciated. Thanks.

    My husband and I were sitting outside at about 1:50 am 8/30/21 when a dragonfly swoops in checks out my husband and then comes just in front of my face flutters there for a moment then flies completely around my head and flies off past my husband and left.
    It was the oddest but most wonderful thing either of us have ever seen.
    It’s often that dragonflies and butterflies come around me and to do acrobatics and dance as they flutter in front of me back n forth and then fly away. I’ve always thought dragonflies as of sprites because fairies have a reputation in some realms of folklore as being a bit mean, although sprites can be little tricksters they are not generally mean.
    So now that I have read this article on the meaning of dragonflies and seeing them, and the message behind them it definitely makes total sense. For my husband and I have had several stressful years leading up to the present. And right now we’ve got big changes coming in our life very soon. Over those several stressful years I’ve changed a great deal. Things used to really rile us both up and cause us to bicker between ourselves about things others would do or some other exterior crap we really didn’t need to be upset at eachother over. There were simple solutions for everything we’d make far more difficult for ourselves. But, there was a pivotal event coming to us in 2021 that we knew if we were prepared when this year came it would change everything. So we prepared. Looking back now everytime I’ve been visited by dragonflies marked a very stressful period but also the beginning of the next phase in preparation both mentally, physically, spiritually and financially for us. Now that we’ve done all the preparation we could do and are on the edge of what could change everything for us, our future and our lives forever for the better! We are excited but stressed, optimistic but scared and hopeful yet wondering have we prepared enough! This dragonfly comes to both of us in the middle of the night, which I’ve never seen a dragonfly at night, when we’ve both have worked on making the best of each moment, although we’re both in different stages of that way of thinking, feeling and making it an everyday way of living, then for us both to be visited at 1:50 am by a single dragonfly at this moment in our lives and me in all the other moments in my past, sends a very loud and clear message to me at least. I’m on the right path, it’s presence tonight was to remind me and my husband that whatever happens or comes from these next few weeks or months is going to turn out well for us in the end but to not allow the stress over things out of our hand and control now to stop us from enjoying the beauty and blessings we have right now and the gift of eachday we wake up and have another day to laugh, live and love!

    Was sitting on a dock with some cousins this past weekend all of a sudden a huge dragonfly swooped in and landed upside down on the dock. While I went to get up to help it, it flipped itself over and landed in the water. I grabbed a stick and lifted it out, and it clung to the stick for a good half hr not moving at all. Placed it on the deck and a few minutes later it flew off. We always reminisce about loved ones that have passed so I think it was a visit from one of them.

    We live out rural in deer and elk territory so we have built a 10 ft high fence around an area where we could grow flowers, bushes and ornamental trees. We live in a barren area that we are slowly developing trees and grass, etc. Yesterday I was in my fenced in area watering while trying to block out so many problems running through my brain. I started noticing a dragonfly hovering around me . Then there were several everywhere I went. It was just amazing as I researched the meaning of this phenomenon. I am in therapy right now for past trauma as well as 4 life changing events that recently happened this past year. This article really hit me very personally.

    I have had a lot of encounters with Damselflies recently, especially when tryjng to photograph them. Some would just fly away but others would pose for me and allow me to take as many photos as I wanted. Many would hover close to my face and then fly off. All wonderful experiences for me.

    My oldest brother disappeared without no trace in January 2016. Police looked for clues but soon the case went cold. Today I was at the lake with my husband and daughter and this purple dragonfly appeared from nowhere while we was in the water and landed on my daughters finger. It lingered there for quite a bit, flying around her from time to time but always landing graciously in her finger as she extended her little arm to it. My daughter is seven years old and she is the youngest of my brother nieces. He only got to see her one time when she was four years. It was the first and last time he saw her and he was in love with her. There was a lot of people in the water but apparently we was the chosen ones. I said we, because like after 20 minutes of being with my daughter it flew towards me and landed on my shoulder without any fear, very close to my face and ear like he was going to whisper a secret to me. I could see all the details on its little body and his big eyes. I’m usually very anxious around bugs but somehow this brought me so much joy and to my surprise I found myself asking him outloud: “Raul? Is that you?” Raul is my brother’s name. Me and my family never had any closure about what happened to him. We don’t have a grave to weep for him or bring him flowers and he was never the kind of person to just dissappear like that and abandon and make his family suffer. I know it sounds insane but I felt like that dragonfly was trying to say: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. It stayed with us for more than half hour. I never had an experience like that and there’s lots of them where I live. They usually keep away from people.

    I absolutely loved this reading. I have been being visited by 3 dragonflies the past few weeks. I feel like they play with me. I water the lawn in the evening & they come & fly around & dodge the water & sometimes fly right through it & it’s close up to me. I always get a sense of peace & am in awe of them. I had a feeling this meant something so I looked it up & found this article which is absolutely amazing. I going through things in my life & know change is needed cause some things are literally killing me inside. This article helped in so many ways to open my eyes & put things in more perspective. Thank you for writing this. 🤗 God bless

    I’ve always been drawn to dragonflies. I was camping about 5 years ago and my life was going through a major transformation. I returned 3 years ago after I had finally found my balance and peace. They greeted me like an old friend. For two weeks I was ALWAYS surrounded by them.
    My daughter and I are looking for someone to do matching dragonfly tattoos. With the phrase. YOU WERE GIVEN THIS LIFE BECAUSE YOUR STRONG ENOUGH TO LIVE IT. .
    To me it doesn’t let us forget that life is hard but we have the strength to survive with love.

    Thank you for your explanation of the beautiful dragonfly, I needed that! I’m 52 married with one child back at home and at a point in my life like I should of done more and what do I need to do now. I mean what to do as in every way, financially, physically, (out of shape) spiritually,! It’s a long story but I guess to sum it up I live in a state of confusion, worrry and sometime sadness. I sit on my back porch with my husband in the mornings drinking our coffee. The past four days a swarm of dragonflies have been right outside our screen porch surrounding our Plumaria tree. I’ve lived here for 20 years never seen it and it’s not the season for them to swarm like this!! So I looked up the meaning and found your site and it just made sense!!! Thank you❤️🙏🏼

    I lived in the country as a little girl and would see them all summer long. My mother used to tell me if I cussed or lied, they would sew my mouth shut. I never dared to try!

    Last summer I was thinking about a very dear friend who passed away suddenly of a massive heart attack. He was experiencing a very hard time is his life that I never knew about until after his death. I never had the chance to tell this friend how special he was in my life, what a difference he made and how he got me through a very hard time. I was praying for a sign that he knew how I felt about him and was at peace as I worked out in my garden. Suddenly a little dragonfly appeared and began “playing” with me. It would fly very close and then take off. I finally stood up as it came back and waved at it, it would zoom close by me and then head upward, do a turn around and then do the zoom next to me. This went on for about 20 minutes. I live in a neighborhood that normally doesn’t see many Dragonflies. It was a very enlightening experience.

    Dragonflies represent a two ye lesson that is either entering or exiting your life.
    In my case,a two ye lesson is exiting my life.
    Dragonflies connect you to the sylphs of the Faey Kingdom because they’re the water Faye.
    Dragonflies stay very close to the water for two yrs,hence the two year lesson.
    They also zig zag in every direction,which is mention of the directions life takes.
    We go one direction,and have to zig or zag in another to learn or recoup something.
    Ted Andrews books Animal Speak and Animal Wise will teach you about Dragon Fly Totems and many others
    There are definitions of totem medicine, lessons and things that can be done to connect w said totem.
    I was going to say Dragon Fly represents the Goddess because it’s connected to water,but it’s also connected to The God because it’s a phallic symbol and is also connected to air.
    Dragon Fly is a perfect blending of the God and Goddess in one

    Excellent article! Last summer, I was on break at work.. I looked down, and there was a dragonfly, tucked under the armrest of the bench upon which I was sitting. When I came out for lunch, it was still there… My last break, it had disappeared. Not sure WHY it was there, but I always felt it was a magical harbinger!

    When I finally decided to take charge of my life and make my life changes I began my journey and acquainted myself with my path and took my first ever vacation and one of the first things I bought myself was a dragonfly necklace and it has brought me much joy and has been with me ever since, so I do believe the benefits of this symbol and all the beliefs that go with it.

    I was sitting in my car in the country about 1000 ft away from a man made lake with my then significant other and one landed on my car door right next to me. My significant other and I were in a serious conversation. I look over and see it looking at me. It let me keep a few pictures of it while it was starring at me. I felt a sense of calmness come over me. Was a beautiful site.

    I see them every summer. And I have always taken that a change was coming. When we were building our home we had dragonflies and butterflies( i associate them with my mom) all over the property, no matter what time of day I was there. I love seeing dragonflies and yes they remind of fairies.

    I have always loved dragonflies.
    I have a dragonfly tattoo of each of my grandchildren on my ankle, It started when my first grandson was born, upon walking out of the hospital after his birth a dragonfly landed on my chest and stayed with me until I got to my car, when I returned to the hospital later that night, I swear the same dragonfly landed on me again.

    I ALWAYS have dragonflies, butterflies and lady bugs visiting me. The other day was the anniversary of my grandmother’s passing, which was her choice bc she was on dialysis and was definitely not living her normal, active life anymore, so she requested to stop treatment. I got to see her a week before she passed, and was supposed to bring my baby girl back to Florida to meet her before she passed, but I had a grand mal seizure and was unable to fly, esp with an 18 month old child. So that has always upset me, and I was thinking about her a lot the other day- and all of a sudden, for the rest of the day, there were dragonflies EVERYWHERE I went! I mean EVERYWHERE! And I hadn’t seen any in a while before that day. I felt like she had a hand in that happening. I get feelings when loved ones who have passed are around. It seems to run in my mother’s side of the family. All the women on that side have always “known things” that you really wouldn’t know unless you’re sensitive and have some kind of psychic ability or gift. Anyway after that day, I haven’t seen any around. It was like a message letting me know she’s with me and to keep on keeping on the right track. I get signs all the time. My hubs gets freaked out by it, but I can feel that the energy around is good and loving, not anything scary or out to get us. My daughter gets the same feelings. 💝🦋🐞🍀☮

    What a beautiful post. I love dragonflies. It is funny my last sighting was a week or two ago. I have been thinking alot lately about a dear friend I lost recently who was a big part of my life and because of her loss part of my world has turned upside down. I have been obsessing and stressing because of the change in my life. It was within the last week I said to myself I really need to adapt and move on which has brought some peace. Maybe it was a tiny little dragonfly who helped nudge me along. <3 If it was I just want to say thank you

    Every since my father passed away I see them frequently especially when I have a situation going on that I’m not sure what to do about it. Even when my kids see them they say Grandpa is here or we are supposed to be here. One situation my second daughter had very premie twins girls we were scared and didn’t know the outcome. The day my daughter came home from the hospital with out the girls she was so stressed and upset understandably. I had the feeling I needed to go out side and I looked over time top of the house and there was a swarm of Dragonflies. I thanked my Dad told him I loved him, went in the house and told my daughter what happened. We both started crying knowing that everything was going to be fine.

    It has been a very long time since I have seen a dragonfly. Just now in the post you sent to me has touch me so.Many years ago I lost my wife to a disease,a little over a year later I lost my youngest daughter to a auto wreck. They both have been on my mind completely for a long time. It has held me back from living in the present. The dragonfly shows me that my life is also short. I am 64 years old and need to start living my life with joy and love again. Thanks for the post and with my Lord and Ladies help I can start to live again. Blessed Be dear one for your timing is perfect.

    I lost my hoise to fire recently, and as i was sifting through the ash looking for any little keepsake that might have survived, a dragonfly landed on my shoulder. I spoke to it and after a second it flew away. As i looked to tge direction it was flying i say a shimmer. It was from an Emerald ring my great aunt left me. She always said it was powerful. Not even the slightest smoke damage. I looked up and dragonflies were everywhere. She said when alive that they were used to communicate in the afterlife.

    I am not of the Wiccan faith. Truthfully I signed up for this out of curiosity and so I could understand the religion better. I do not however believe that Wicca and Witchcraft can go hand in hand. It is my opinion that Witchcraft is just that—a craft, very much like being an artisan. It is not a religion. That being said, however people choose to view it, is up to them. I do however, believe that the dragonfly signifies the spirit of a loved one who has passed on, watching over those left behind. I have seen the same 2 dragonflies on my porch step, one was black with white wings, the other black with transparent wings.

    Today, while waiting in a drive through for coffee, a orange dragonfly hovered beside my car; each time my car moved the dragonfly followed. I then drove about 10 miles to a store and low and behold I get out of my car a an orange dragonfly hovered right in front of me. I went into the store for about 40 minutes, came out and the orange dragonfly was still hovering at my car. Could this have been the same dragonfly from when I was 10 miles away? And why was it following me?

    I am about to lose my job due to the pandemic and major changes are on my horizon. I’ve rarely seen any dragonflies in my back yard for years ..until this past week. The first one was blue and stayed for awhile almost like a pet. The second one was orange and only hung around for a day. The third was actually pink.

    A really big dragon fly was on the bricks near my entry door about 9.00 this morning when I sat outside for my morning coffee ☕ I saw it it was still there for ages my son arrived about an hour later still there my son said I think it may have died mum I said how is it holding on still I gave it a pat on its body part very gently it’s tail went down then he put it back up I did this about 5 times and he was letting me do this I have never been able to pay one before then when my son was leaving I said goodbye and it flew away strange but after reading about why they visit to me it all made sense he was beautiful my daughter in law took a pic of him 😁

    Just seen a dragonfly last week in my flower garden, he was beautiful, took some pictures of him, he didn’t seem to mind that I was there, later that day I went to work and I noticed a lot of people with dragonfly tattoos or jewelry or picture of them, this makes sense now! Thank you!

    A few weeks ago I was having a lot of depression, oppression and anxiety and have been woofing about things obsessively and just wishing I could go back and change things in my life. I just turned 51 and have a lot of reservations and fears about getting older and every time I came outside there were black dragonflies with white wings everywhere. They have two wings on each side and I had to do a.double take because they look like ministry toy planes. But they are beautiful. Since then, the last week I have been feeling much better emotionally. And ya know, I have not seen one dragonfly. Not one.

    Where I live there are dragonflies:), a lot of times I will see them along the fence. Few weeks ago there was one on my porch a lot of times when you get close they’ll fly but usually land back in same spot but sometimes if you hold your finger out they’ll land on you, and that’s just what this one did. My daughter, and niece got excited. They are so neat and pretty and fun to watch!

    I have a pretty little dragonfly tattooed on the side of my leg above the ankle. To help me stay focused in the here and now and remember to enjoy life to the fullest. Was just visited for a short moment a few days ago which helped bump me out of a slump as we don’t see them often in our yard. Some bad news from the doctor had me rethinking thru a lot of things when I should have been focusing on fighting as i always have. The little guy stopped and perched on the deck rail not 6 inches away from me and reminded me to make the most of what I have. Love the little creatures!!

    I love this post, because I love dragonflies! I have 3 dragonfly tatoos on my back, each one’s body spells the name of my kids… Joshua, Jack, and Hannah. I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by dragonglies almost everyday, because I live on the Elk River in Northeast Oklahoma. Dragonflies make me feel at peace with myself and the world.. they love to hang out with me… They land on me all the time and don’t mind if I splash a little water on myself to cool off. My mom says I’m a dragonfly whisperer, lol…. It’s so cool when they mate because sometimes their tales will make a perfect heart shape. They are little treasures that make me happy!

    About a month ago, one flew in my car as i was getting ready to drive out of my driveway. Scared the shit out of me. Im guessing now that was a face to Fairy in counter. Really didnt know the implications of them being around at the time. Got my attention though. And im recalling now it was a pretty stressful month. And if i recall, it was when one of my sons got a DUI and it cost me alot of money and time with court and driving him to work. We got though it and he ended up moved out got a job all in the next month. Things just seamed to come together. Thanks Sylphs…

    I’ve had them come close at times, but then, I didn’t know how to communicate with them. But they did seem to want me to understand something. But I couldn’t put 2 and 2 together, to know how to know what I was supposed to do.

    Been looking for the courage to go look for a live work studio. Today I went to meet a realestate agent who gave me a my first walk through. Starving so After Went through the drive threw @kfc and some guy out of no where pulls up in front of me and buys my order ..so wierd. But at that moment I was distracted by a orange dragon fly flying in front of my window for a few minutes. Thereafter Im waiting for a friend and another dragon fly lands on my car while I wait. Now I’m smoking a cigar at my place and a dragon fly is flying around me and humming birds are all over the place. 😀 what does this all mean 🙃

    For the the past few weeks a dragonfly comes to see me every time I get in the car. It will then sit on my car antenna until I leave. At first I was just so happy for the visits, now I’m really taking mental notes on what needs to change around me and within me. Thank you for the informative article.

    Saw dragonfly hitching ride on a beetle then climb off walk couple steps & get right back on & ride on thru the grass. thought this odd for a flying insect. But think telling me was hanging on to someone need let go of. And did & feel better now.Also see them randomly & often since going thru my own transformation lately. LUV U 4 U.

    I had one visit last evening. I was actually sitting on my porch crying. I’m in a situation that I can’t talk about, but I also know that there really isn’t any more that I can do. I just have to stay calm and ride out the storm, but the storm was a little intense yesterday. I needed that reminder to stay focused on the goal. I know that all will be as it should be.

    My mother has come to me as a dragonfly since her passing. Yesterday I went tot he beach to feel close to my mom- I was in our hotel room feeling sad because I didn’t feel my mother yesterday on the anniversary of her passing.
    I told my sister I was disappointed- Disappointing me is not her- EVER.
    Soon after a DRAGONFLY flew into our room!
    She flew around a bunch then landed on the curtain-
    I put my hand out and she came to me-
    Then she KISSED ME!!!!
    ❤️😭❤️😭🥰

    Imagine!!!!

    I cried and cried I was so completely overwhelmed. I could hear her in my ear saying-
    “I was busy celebrating yesterday – of course I’d come.” Ha ha Ha

    SHE KISSED ME!!!!❤️🥰❤️❤️❤️

    My mom kissed me❤️❤️🥰❤️🥰

    I wish I could attach photos to show it.
    It was beyond amazing.

    We’ve lost 3 of our family pets in this past year. After each loss a dragonfly appeared. Our dog, Izzy. Then a white dragonfly came that night. Our cat, Athena and an orange dragonfly came. My cat Drake of 14 years who was my baby. I’ve had a red dragonfly come to me and actually let me hold it. Emotional stuff. But, very comforting. Thanks for this read!

    Yesterday I took my Dad to be tested for the virus and on the way home as we stopped for a red light a dragonfly was next to the car just hanging out then as we moved on and came to the next red light there it was again and it circled in front of us as we pulled away it followed for a second then gone., I love dragonflies. Many years ago I was dreaming and there were dragonflies in my dream then I started seeing them in front of my car when I would park my car at work this happened several times so I went and got a tat on my wrist. its in color- the body is blue, outline of wings red, inside of wings pink. The colors are for my grandson, son and daughter. Colors represent their birth month. I believe that what happened yesterday was a sign that dad and I will be ok!

    I have a massive dragonfly tattoo on my left shoulder. It was one of my first tattoos after a set of fairies with my daughters names. This tattoo is very realistic and used to look 3D till I colored most of rest of my back in, but I still get dragonflies landing on me often.

    The last time I saw a butterfly was 3 days ago at a cottage. A dragonfly decided to land on my head and stay in my hair for quite awhile until I had forgotten and accidentally put my hand through my hair and it flew off but then it came right back! It stayed for hours, I gave it a cap of water to make sure it wasn’t thirsty and it climbed into the cap and took drinks, and then it would fly a bit but either straight onto my hand or into my hair. My friend was making jokes that I had found a new pet and I might have to take it home lol. Well, the past weekend before this I decided to make a huge step and quit drinking as well as try to make goals to help my mental health. So reading this was really reassuring and definitely makes me think that this visit was no coincidence. ☺

    My dear friend passed on 27 May this year. She was riddled with cancer and was visited regularly by butterflies. She new I loved dragonflies. Today I was gardening and scattering rocks when I noticed a dragonfly right in front of my. I hoped it was my friend visiting so had a chat the said if that’s really you please land on my hand … and it did. I cried with joy and immediately phoned her mother who was delighted xxx it was a very special universal moment

    At the beach a dragon fly landed on me and stayed there for 15-20 minutes and enough time for my grandson, granddaughter and wife to see it. My six year old grandson took a photo of it and I see a few around me when I’m at my pool flying around me.
