    Great Companions.

    I was on a backpacking trip in Northern Ontario.  Up there, in the summer, mosquitos outnumber humans several billion to one.  As my hiking group sat down to dinner so did the mosquitos.  Even with long sleeves and long pants, they were having free reign. ...

    Yes, But From a Distance

    They are such intricate creatures and are probably what inspired people to write about fairies. However, I've had a bad experience with one a long time ago. I was walking around the town centre when a huge dragonfly buzzed into my path from nowhere and started to bash against a...

    Afinity To Them

    Many summers in a row, I went camping/fishing with my farther, because I don't fish I usually stayed by the shore with my own little row boat, while rowing around I would see one stuck on the water, with my oar I would lightly scoop it up and put it on my boat to dry off. I did...

    The Dragon Fly

    My astral family keeps tabs on me, In my physical reality through plants and animals. Because as they are spirits our limited projection does not permit us to see light or vibrations that high. I was told that and show with plenty of evidence to support that theory. The dragonfly...

    The pinnacle of my childhood was catching

    dragonflies. I would chase them around all day, everyday. When I would catch one, I would observe it briefly before letting it go. One time I remember putting one on my nose and it stayed which was pretty awesome. My greatest catch was this huge lime green dragonfly. It was...

    Summer of the Drangonflies

    This last summer I started dreaming about dragonflies. Lots of them. All colors, shapes, sizes, patterns. Then, late summer they started appearing. They'd flicker between bushes around me or just perch and look in my direction. The one I remember the most vividly was this...

    Whirlwind Romance

    I found out recently that dragonflies only live for a day or two. Loving a dragonfly might involve serious amounts of black coffee.  From first date to funeral in 48 hours - an intense romance.

    My Minions:

    It is so strange to come across this. I have been researching the meanings or reasons dragonflies follow certain people for years. I am 24 years old, and as a child growing up I was always fascinated by dragonflies. I would always chase them, catch them, observe them, they are...

    I remember going through a tough time. And I asked God to send me a sign. I was sitting outside in my backyard. When out of nowhere a dragonfly appeared. So since then I feel dragonflies are my lucky charm. Soon I want to get a tattoo of a dragonfly. I have been given...

    Just figured mine out. Asked a while back what mine was and dragonflies started appearing. Wow, explains so much about what I have been going through. Major spiritual awakening kind of stuff.

    Blessed By A Dragonfly

    A couple of summers ago, and again last summer, I was blessed by a Dragonfly, and both times I was at a Pow Wow. I go to these celebrations because I appreciate the beliefs and way of life of our First Nation peoples. In any case.... ~~~ I remember the Pow Wow of a couple of...

    Swimming In Them

    Dragonflies are magical, when there are a few of them at least. I grew up where they would swarm over hot fields of grass. I played soccer and it would always freak me out swatting those big-winged creatures away from me. And they fly with such speed it stings when they fly...

    Dragonflies To The Rescue

    I remember back about 10 or 11 years ago when I was in my early 20s, back when a friend and I were avid fishermen. We had a favorite 'secret pond' in the woods we would go to to catch big bass out in the old canoe. One late-summer evening right before dusk, the mosquitoes were...

    Fast Bug

     I was sitting on my front steps once, waiting for my grandmother to pick me up. As I waited, I noticed a small bug flying around in front of me. Bored, I watched it. Suddenly, it was gone.  It took me a few seconds to see the dragonfly that had caught it and ate it. I...
