The topic of Spirit Animals, Totem Animals, Power Animals or guides has become a growing hobby of mine. I enjoy learning about different animals and what they signify. This comes in handy in life and also for my work; I find it all quite fascinating. Once I started to explore this idea, the Law of Attraction started sending me clients who had close connections with animal guides and I really started to pay attention! To determine if you have a particular animal guide it typically takes three sightings. However, if it walks right up to you then it clearly means business! Please take this a clear sign to go and look up the animal meaning right away.

It came to my attention two years ago that the dragonfly was a spirit animal of mine. In my story, this inspiring winged insect signified spiritual transformation and major life changes on the horizon. It was asking me to be adaptable, take “flight” and find joy in all of life experiences.

I am known to tell my clients to pay attention to the signs and I take my own advice.

Sign #1 – My husband surprised me this year. He secretly bought an opal dragonfly pendant that I had been admiring at a market stand on a recent trip to Mexico. He tucked it away and gave it to me on our 10 year wedding anniversary. This type of gift is unusual in our relationship so I found it particularly special and significant.

Sign #2 – After an amazing week of living in the flow, I was walking home and guess who was waiting for me on the stairwell? My daughter first spotted the blue dragonfly and called me over. At first we thought it was dead because it sat there perfectly still for quite some time. However, when I reached down and gently touched it, the dragonfly took a step forward but still did not fly away. It was a highly spiritual moment, as if time stood still and I wondered what this winged creature had come to tell me. Usually they are darting around so fast you cannot get a good look at them so I savoured every second of it and stayed fully present. I decided I should document this moment and went to grab my camera; Mr. Dragonfly had vanished upon my return.

Sign #3 – The next day I flip the page on my calendar to reveal a full page shot of none other than the blue dragonfly!

I think I got the message and thank you dragonfly for letting me know that change is on the horizon! I am embracing this monumental shift with an attitude of gratitude!

I will close with some additional information on my good friend the dragonfly (Resource: Animal Spirit Guides by Steven D. Farmer PH.D.). When a dragonfly shows up in your life there a few different reasons that could be at play:

#1. There are falsehoods or illusions that are clouding a current situation or relationship.
#2. You need to tap into your deeper emotions and stop being so rational.
#3. You are entering a period of magic and mystery and reawakening.
#4. Begin a regular meditation practice as you need to re-charge your psychic energy.
#5. More than simply a change, you are going through a major transformation so enjoy the process!

Dragonfly is your Power Animal if:

#1. You are emotionally intense and passionate individual, although as you have matured you have learned the art of detachment and emotional containment.
#2. You have a lot of nervous energy and must balance this energy by getting grounded from time to time.
#3. You are a master of seeing though illusions, whether others’ or your own.

The Energy of Gaia
There is more to our Planet Earth, Gaia, than meets the eye. Have you ever wondered about Earth energies? What are portals? Why do hauntings occur, and are they related to the energy of Gaia? Gaia’s Earth energies interface with humanity in a surprising and astonishing way. The natural history of our Earth is well published, but could there be a missing piece of this puzzle? Could it be that there is something that explains why we are here and the role of our planet, Gaia? Perhaps Gaia and humanity are bigger than you think?...

Recipe
Raw Borscht Salad with Cashews Dressing
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Good ol' Beets. So readily available and oh so good for you! They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and help both build the blood and detoxify it! It combines flavors that you will find very familiar if you've ever had traditional borscht soup. In this recipe you will enjoy celery root, carrot, green onions, beets (of course) and a creamy dressing made from soaked raw cashews, lemon, pepper and dried dill.
Beet roots contain unique phytonutrient pigments. Betacyanin is the red pigment found in red Beets and betaxanthin is the yellow pigment found in yellow Beets. Both of these pigments can provide powerful antioxidant protection. Beet roots are also particularly rich in folate, a B vitamin important for a healthy heart and essential for normal tissue growth. Although they are high on the glycemic index (contain lots of natural sugar and quickly rise our blood sugar levels) they are surprisingly low in calories. And, don’t throw out your beet greens – they are an extremely nutritious vegetable. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which provide powerful antioxidant protection from oxidative damage to cellular structure and DNA. They, like the beet roots are rich in phytonutrients and are even richer in iron than spinach.
