The Energetic Wisdom of Adaptability
"The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings." ~Okakura Kakuzo
I've been bombarded lately by multiple dragonflies. They have chased me, gotten tangled in my hair, rested on my car while sitting still, bounced off my home windows while writing, and they have even been following me around my yard. They have been extremely persistent in letting me know that they are all around me. I am finding comfort in the fact that they seem to show up soon after I look to the sky and ask for the strength to carry on when I feel completely overwhelmed. I don't believe they plan to go anywhere anytime soon, so I am giving them my full attention while I dig deeper into why they are making their presence so visible in my life.
In meditation and prayer, I create space for inner wisdom to manifest itself. Recently, I have been experiencing an unusually large amount of change, and so has the collective consciousness. In light of all the darkness, I find that I am spending more time in prayer asking for the ability to remain peaceful in the midst of chaos. I am also asking for unlimited inner strength so that I stay rooted in the awareness of what is happening in my life and the world around me. These delightful and magical flying dancers may be sending me lighthearted signals in how to stay consciously connected with the part of my soul that chooses to transform beyond what I cannot comprehend. When nothing, absolutely nothing, makes sense I must trust in the "Energetic Wisdom of Adaptability" and transform from fear based reactions to love based solutions.
The Dragonflies Message:
I believe these fairy-like messengers are showing up at this point in my life because I choose to emotionally transform and spiritually evolve, even in the midst of uncertainty and fear. The dragonfly has long been a symbol of metamorphosis and transformation. In many cultures, the dragonfly continues to inspire those who believe in the power of something larger than themselves. I have no choice but to fully embrace the symbolism and the messages sent from above and beyond. I hope I will continue to align with the inevitable changes needed in my life in order to reach my full potential. My earthy tendencies are to habitually get in my own way and unconsciously self-sabotage, but I believe this is a pivotal moment for me to stop, pause, and re-evaluate my life path. In doing this, I believe I may discover more joy in living simple while dismissing the myth that life has to be complicated to have depth and meaning. This is, no doubt, an invitation from the Divine Creator to dive deeper into the realm of emotions and feelings after being numb for so many years.
