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.

Nori Rolls
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Nori has been valued as a food of longevity by Japanese people for a long time. According to the earliest written records in 701 AD, nori was so valuable as to be one of the tributes in those days.
The amount of nutrition contained in nori is the highest among seaweeds, and nori contains as much protein as soybeans. Nori also contains vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium as well as EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and fiber, which are necessary for maintaining good health.
Nori is full of three desirable taste components: glutamate acid, inosinic acid, and guanil acid--also called "the flavor of Japan." This is the secret of its popularity among Japanese people since ancient times.
Nori contains 12 kinds of vitamins including group A and B vitamins. Nori is called "The Reservoir of Vitamins" because few other foods are as much in vitamins as nori. Nori is part of a "beauty diet"--rich in protein and low in cholesterol.
It is also part of a "healthy diet"--abundant in vitamins and minerals. It is especially good for growing children, with excellent medical value because it contains a substance that lowers cholesterol, helping to prevent arteriosclerosis.
At the Japan Cancer Congress in 1958, professor Ichiro Yamamoto from Kitazato University announced that nori has cancer-preventing properties, and since then, nori's medical value has gained a significant amount of public attention.
