Dragonfly – The Joy Of Freedom

Sitting at my writing desk, a red dragonfly hovers in front of me and catches my attention. I AM blessed by her daily morning visit lasting for about a week.

On the first morning, I dismiss it as Dragonfly simply greeting me “Good morning!”  I’m quite pleased and appreciative of the gesture, naturally.

However, when she’d appear every morning, at around the same time, at eight o’clock, for a whole week….Hmmmm……

She simply isn’t giving me a routine morning greeting, is she?

She keeps perching on the same leaf of the same plant which sits right next to my desk. The exact same spot, for one whole week!

Clearly, there’s something more to this scenario. I AM getting a nudge from the Universe.

I immediately remember the last time when I was also blessed with the magical presence of Dragonfly. I was in the mystical island of Siquijor at the time.

I quickly go back to read what I wrote then.

I’m surprised! Dumbfounded. In awe.

What I wrote pretty much describes what I’m experiencing at the moment! I was, just as I am now, contemplating on my living situation, evaluating my options, looking for another place (resort) to stay.

What I was going through then quickly flashes back. My shoulders stiffen. My stomach tightens. The hair on my nape starts to lift. I begin to have short breaths.

I distinctly remember how I was ignoring the signs at the time. The same signs that I’m choosing to overlook right now — out of not wanting to get out of my comfort zone — even at the expense of my own personal joy and freedom. In other words, I am beginning to settle — again!

Synchronicity? A repeat of history? Is Dragonfly visiting to remind me and forewarn me, if not knock me in the head?

To ensure that I truly get the message, Dragonfly executes a brilliant tactic.

I push myself away from my desk to take a break from my writing and reading. I take a quick sip of water. I head to the toilet to take a pee.  Lo and behold! Dragonfly is in my toilet! (There’s something about this bungalow’s toilet that attracts the animal kingdom to deliver messages to me. In February, Praying Mantis visited me and was also a messenger. I wrote about that here.)

Dragonfly hovers by the window where the light from the warm morning sun sips through. She buzzes quite loudly as she keeps pushing her face against the closed glass window, clearly wanting to get out!

The empath that I am, I feel Dragonfly feeling suffocated. She doesn’t have freedom of movement. She feels trapped.

Interestingly, the toilet isn’t actually fully enclosed. There are a couple of openings where she could get out.

One is the upper section of the right wall which opens into the outside garden. The other is the toilet door itself, which also has an open upper section that leads to the sink area.

She can choose from either of the two but she insists on getting out through the window.

“I want to get out! Get me out of here! I want to fly outside into the light. I want to be elsewhere. I don’t want to pass through the other openings — I will only be led right back to this place,” she seems to tell me. Or are they my own thoughts that I’m projecting? My own thoughts that I’m ignoring and dismissing? My own thoughts that Dragonfly is merely bringing back to my conscious awareness?

The Law of Mirroring is clearly at play here. Dragonfly’s situation is certainly mirroring back to me my situation.

As soon as I open the window, which opens to the vast empty lot behind my bungalow, Dragonfly flies so fast and freely. She is free, whee!!!!

Ahhhh….Freedom.

If I continue to stay where I’m at, I will continue to feel suffocated. My freedom will continue to be curtailed.

Dragonfly is reminding me of the importance of freedom, the joy of freedom, and the importance of the joy of freedom!

    • 🙂 Happy to know it helped you! I feel blessed. To think I stopped myself from sharing the link… Thanks to your prodding though. 🙂 Much Love to you too sister Sindy! ❤ ❤ ❤ Blessed be.

      • I hesitate to share links to my blog on the blogs of others, because, they may not like it. So I understand your ambivalence…but I don’t mind at all. I think our interconnectedness her on WPis so spiritual. One being lead to another and we move in unison and flow like your swarm of dragonflies on the island. ❤ Someone else may need to read that too!

        So much love and gratitude sister~

        • Yeah, for the same reason, as I said earlier in my comment in your post, that I stopped myself from sharing my links. I’ve seen those done by others — that’s a huge turn off for me! Some of those though Sindy are in fact here in wordpress — but that’s all part of the blogging experience. I’m glad I don’t encounter those kinds anymore. What I have encountered recently — only a few, not that many, thankfully — are those who share in the comment section, sounding — making themselves sound so spiritual, mystical, philosophical, etc. That’s a turn off as well! Again, it’s part of the blogging experience.

          Love your description of our wordpress spiritual tribe and our interconnectedness — “One being lead to another and we move in unison and flow like your swarm of dragonflies on the island.” ❤ 🙂 ❤ Loooove that! ❤

          You know, I just got an insight as I'm writing this. Our conversation reminded me to keep on following my inner prompting. I surely wasn't intending on promoting my blog site or being sneaky (like those I mentioned) to get more readers and followers, so why did I stop myself, right? I wasn't attempting to make myself appear spiritual, mystical, philosophical, etc. (again, like those I mentioned and encountered), so why stop myself, right? If you didn't prod me, you wouldn't have gotten the message you so needed to hear! It's great that you followed your inner prompting to nudge me — good for you! You go girl! 🙂 So, I am equally blessed and thankful to you for reminding me to not hesitate or second guess when I feel a divine prompting!

          Thanks for the blessing sister Sindy! And thanks to Dragonfly!!! Woo-hoo! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂

        • Whoa and I just had another aha moment Sindy. I read again both of my Dragonfly posts. I am in a similar situation as I was when Dragonfly appeared to me on both occasions — contemplating on my living situation, moving to another place (I’ll be transferring to another resort in a few days) and evaluating my options. OMG Sindy! I too needed to read again what I wrote and be reminded of the importance of the joy of freedom! 🙂 Thank you dear sister! Thank you Dragonfly! ❤ ❤ ❤
