Daily Oracle Card for Friday, April 8, 2016
Good Morning Friends!
Dragonfly has flown into our reading for today. Once again, I pulled our card from Jamie Sams and David Carson's, "Medicine Cards," available here.
The message asks us to turn our attention back on ourselves. Shine a light on yourself and your daily habits. Is there something that we haven't been seeing clearly, or something that we have let slip? Perhaps we've forgotten to take care of something, or there may be some bad habit that we haven't noticed that is holding us back from being and achieving out best. At any rate, Spirit is asking us to 'turn the light on ourselves' to irradiate any illusions that may be hiding there.
Dragonfly medicine is of the dreamtime and the illusionary facade we accept as physical reality. The iridescence of Dragonfly's wings remind us of colors not found in our everyday experience. Dragonfly's shifting of color, energy, form, and movement explodes into the mind of the observer, bringing vague memories of a time or place where magic reigned.
Some legends say that Dragonfly was once Dragon. Dragon had scales like Dragonfly's wings. Dragon was full of wisdom and flew through the night bringing light with its fiery breath. The breath of Dragon brought forth the art of magic and the illusion of changing form. Then Dragon got caught in its own facade. Coyote tricked Dragon into changing form, and the shape of its new body became like Dragonfly's. In accepting the challenge to prove its power and magical prowess, Dragon lost its power.
Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communications from the elemental world. This elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants, and of the elements air, earth, fire, and water. In essence, this world is full of nature spirits.
If Dragonfly has flown into your cards today, you may have forgotten to water your plants. On another level, you may need to give thanks to the foods you eat for sustaining your body. On the psychological level, it may be time to break down the illusions you have held that restrict your actions or ideas.
Dragonfly medicine always beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which you need ot change. Have you put on too much weight, or have you started to look like a scarecrow? Have you tended to the changes you have wanted to make in your life? If you feel the need for change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.
See how you can apply the art of illusion to your present question or situation, and remember that things are never completely as they seem.
I hope you enjoy connecting to the medicine of Dragonfly today!
With love and blessings,
