Why the dragonfly? Dragonfly symbolizes that particular sense of self that only comes with maturity. They let us know that we have within us the ability to overcome our self-created illusions that all too often limit our growth. They remind us that we are like the light and that we can reflect our light in powerful ways if we so choose. Living such a short life, dragonfly knows the value of living life to the fullest thereby reminding us to do the same!
