Whether we choose to listen to the message of the dragonfly is ultimately up to us; however, the dragonfly spirit guide is one to be honored and openly listened to.
Why are dragonfly spirit guides so ambiguous, yet special? Dating back hundreds of years, many myths and legends of the dragonfly spouted false information, including the idea that dragonflies were "of the devil" and would poke out peoples' eyes with their tails. Scientifically, this is untrue; however, people also believed that the dragonflies could wake a snake and were in "cahoots" with the snake. Another silly superstition, most likely began by the early Christian church.
One encouraging and enlightening myth (or reality for Pagans) is that the dragonfly is one of the animal spirit guides to the goddess Freya. The Chinese and Japanese have long regarded the dragonfly as a holy animal of sorts. Some people even believed that the dragonfly was once a dragon, hence the name. Dragonflies are not just spirit guides, they are also very useful in the natural world such as their tendencies to fight off the mosquito population. But how can the dragonfly spirit guide aid you in your life and spirituality right now?
The dragonfly spirit guide may be coming to you to teach you one or all of the following: skill, refinement, relentlessness, and/or creativity.
