I sat quietly on the front lawn this afternoon, basking in the warm Thanksgiving sunshine, contemplating the intense healing I’ve been doing lately, when a beautiful red dragonfly landed on my foot. It stayed there for almost five minutes, flying away and returning three times. As an animal totem, the dragonfly represents change and the need to see the positive in all situations. It’s appearance on my foot made perfect sense to me because the healing I’ve been doing is mostly around purging anger and it has been very challenging! I haven’t always been handling it with grace. The dragonfly was telling me to change my perspective on this purging and see it as an unavoidable part of the healing process. See it as a good thing! It’s appearance uplifted me! It brought a sense of relief and a sudden warmth to my heart! It was an encouraging moment and I felt awesome!
