Dragonflies are messengers of the spiritual realm. They connect us with Spirit, with the souls that are beyond the earth realm, and with impermanence itself. When my grandma passed a couple of years ago, in late May, is when the backyard is our old house would be filled with these large crimson or blue dragonflies. I saw them as a hello from the Beyond. Here in the new place there is no standing water and I don’t see dragonflies. After being sad about that for a second, I opened my phone and this picture appeared as a memory from a year ago. Interestingly, I am contemplating another passing, as my doggie Sammy was diagnosed with cancer and may not have much longer to live. Deep in the throes of change, we are. I am reminded to remain steadfast in my connection to spirit. Spirit is the only river that is constant. Everything else changes and is passed by.
