Do you tap into the symbolism that is presented to you?
I have just moved to the State of Florida and everywhere I drive, I have discovered that I am surrounded by dragonflies. They flutter right in front of me and frequently fly in my traffic pattern. I felt that I was being shown a sign and their presence has captured my imagination but I didn't know why; however, being an intuitive, I felt that this was a message for me to explore. I started to do some research on dragonflies and discovered something wonderful. One website called dragonfly-site.com said: "The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life." I thought Wow! I have encountered a huge move from one side of the USA to another. I choose to live in a completely different environment and lifestyle then I ever encountered before and I am meeting people from all walks of life and enjoying the experience.
I am feeling a deep sense of freedom and transformation for myself and our companies; and the dragonfly is simply a symbolism that is reinforcing that fact. The dragonfly like the butterfly goes through a metamorphosis during its life cycle; I am definitely going through a metamorphosis and change in my life too. I have in my lifetime met many different types of people and I have come to realize that many people are stuck in their old ways and want their lives to stay static. I have always been a person who wanted to explore and seek out new opportunities and adventures. I am inquisitive and I ask a lot of questions which has often caused my family and friends to get frustrated with me because they are some of the people that I know who like to keep everything the same. Yet, for me, sameness breeds' complacency and a state of mediocrity, which does not serve my beliefs or me. While I am always conscious of taking care of my self physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, I also understand that I must release myself from my blocks of fear, worry and unknowingness because only then can I fly freely and experience new opportunities and adventures.
I know that I am not alone. There are many of you who agree with me and actually resonate to the same vibration and tune. After all, we are here for a short time so we might just as well try new experiences and endeavors that will allow us to feel the excitement and joy of encountering something new and fascinating about this journey on earth.
I actually resonate with the dragonfly. It flies freely, swiftly and is in continual motion yet it seems to radiate energy of lightness and magic. They are illusive because they are here one minute and gone the next which leave one to imagine new thoughts and new ideas that just might open the door to new horizons. So whether you belief in symbolism or clues that the Universe is attempting to share with you and me, I personally believe that we are faced daily with messages that are intended to show us something that will most definitely facilitate our journey in life. For me, I like that thought because I can use all the help I can get. I am always looking for signs of hope and new possibilities that will help me grow and sustain a life that is meant just for me.
It is true that life can be difficult and yes it is true that life can send us into a frenzy of fear, panic and doubt. That is why I always look for signs, messages or clues that might help me, encourage me and allow me to continue with confidence. I know I need to keep walking. I know that I need to stay focused and I know that I must continually believe in myself and my abilities.
You may not agree with my words or thoughts but I still ask you to look around your life and world you live in and see if you too have been encountering signs, symbols or clues in your life that have been trying to get your attention and
share a message that just might be of value to you.
I encourage you to share your thoughts with me and all the other readers. Each one of us can learn and grow from each other.
