Dragonflies and Nature

Last week had a few curves that I thought were going to happen, but in the end everything worked out. Funny how that seems to happen after relaxing outside with nature.

One thing that remained a focus the whole week were dragonflies. I had seen quite a few this month, but had more experiences with them on one particular day.

I meditated for the first time in a long time and had this little visitor join me. He stayed long enough to enjoy or add to my meditation and then flew away when I was done.

Dragonflies, in many cultures, symbolise change and adaptability. Almost all of this morning I was swirling in thoughts of fear. As I walked back to my car, though,  I felt calm and resolved.

My healing sanctuary was my mother and I’s “safe spot”, from last week’s post Week of Reflections. The lake was still in full bloom of lotus flowers, which I was extremely happy about! 😊 And yet again I came across another dragonfly. ❤

Another dragonfly ❤

One thing that I found interesting about the many dragonflies I had seen, is that every one of them were either blue or had a blue tail and green body. Blue has always symbolised calm for me and green as healing. I’m going to get deep with ya for a moment, but I have always wondered if we create each moment as we breathe or that things “pop” up to aid us in our creations of each day…

Like me being trapped in fear and wanting to break free; and then a particular animal or color begins to be predominant of my day. Is this chance, coincidence, or creation? I guess we may never know, lol. Either way, I am grateful for this life and its many transformations. We don’t need to always figure things out, it’s mostly about the experience and love that we get out of it.

Oh and as promised, I finished up another nature portrait that I was working on. I had fun experimenting with shavings from a “writable” rock. It was the first time I felt like I was using natural pigment. I mean, look at what it did for those eyes 😍. I love it! I may add a few more things to her, but I feel good with how she looks 😁💖.

See you soon! 😊

  1. Spectacular photos of the dragonflies. And your nature portrait held an energy that seemed truly connected to nature. PS: Your comment about dragonflies being blue reminded me that dragons are often depicted in art as being blue.
