Dear Dr. Standley: (What do dragonflies mean?)
Since Friday of last week, I am continuously being followed by a swarm of dragon flies. Yesterday afternoon, there was a swarm of dragon flies totally in the thousands directly above me in the pool. When I moved, they moved. When I take my dogs for a walk, the dragon flies fly above. As we turn, they turn.
What do dragon flies mean? I've never seen so many in one place. I've no idea why I have captivated their interest.......any help in understanding dragon flies would be appreciated......
Great e-mail. Thanks for the question.
Right now . . you would be considered "Dragonfly People" until you clear or
use this energy to you higher purpose.
Dragonflies are about illusion. They are also about wisdom and they bring
messages. Dragonfly Medicine is incredibility spiritual and dragonfly
medicine often bring messages from beyond (possibly someone who has passed
or a straight message from God).
This message may come in the form of a "thought" that you had once you saw
the dragonfly medicine.
The main thing about dragonfly medicine to remember is the "illusion." To
look beyond the illusion. There may be a mask or facade that you are
wearing that you need to look beyond. This is a message to learn to take
care of yourself and release any restrictions that you have unconsciously
put on yourself. If you restrict yourself, then you cannot fly. Go past
Check in with your habits and see what needs to be changed. Habits are
merely illusions to what is really going on.
Dragonfly Medicine is asking you to "get real" with yourself and refrain
from getting caught up in useless illusion.
There is an Animal Medicine section under the Native American portion of this website. Presently, I do not yet have the dragonfly loaded. For later use, here is the link. I'll try to get it posted as soon as possible.

I hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your reply. Unfortunately, your response has
provoked far more confusion than resolve.
Absent of the knowledge of the practice of Feng Shui in my adolesence, as
an adult I have concluded that I was raised based on its premise:
Structure and balance breeds tranquility and harmony. I am, therefore,
confused as to your referral of an illusion masking reality.
Life continues to breed challenges finding opportunity in change. I am
having difficulty in applying your explanation with actual reality in my
world. In every moment of my being I continue to strive to achieve my
goals/dreams meeting obstacles that can be overcome to continue on my path,
and those that are meant to change my direction. Your explanation is so
broad that it clouds my reasoning.........
There is something, however, in my inner being that continues to restrain
and overpower my movement forward that seems to be growing, confining me
further encompassing my thought process more often each day. In reality,
there is no resolve that can be achieved, rendering all efforts futile.
This restraint is not physical in nature, but is seemingly more powerful
emotionally. When you mentioned that the swarm of dragon flies could have
contained a message from beyond, I searched my memory for thoughts at that
time. I recalled that it was then that my thoughts were clouded and
building with the same issues plagueing me that have continued to pull me
back, further and further ............ How do I achieve this inner peace
to release the restraints and allow me forward mobility? How do I get past
Again, great e-mail.
In reading your e-mail, you are most certainly "clear" to me. We are
speaking the same language, we just say it differently.

E-mail----------what a phenomenal mode of communication!
We are at the onset of our physical inventory beginning tomorrow which will
warrant all of my time, effort and energy through Saturday. I will,
however, follow-up with you middle of next week after my month end close.
I can't thank you enough for the timely responses to my e-mails Dr
Standley; much appreciated. If nothing more than a catharsis, my e-mails
have evoked thought in an attempt to understand. That's a good thing. I
will speak to you next week!
Thank you again!
