a fun and informative blog about aromatherapy, alternative medicine & the healing arts, beauty, & the mind-body-spirit

Women going through menopause, or the change of life suffer from so many discomforts. It’s no fun trying to handle menopause, let alone dealing with the everyday stresses that occur.

While creating a menopause blend for some  dear friends I noticed a dragonfly sitting next to me.Sometimes, when I meditate, specific animals will make themselves noticed. It doesn’t seem a coincidence that she would show up.

The dragonfly perched so our eyes would meet. While I was meditating on which oils to ask for aid in relieving some of their menopausal symptoms, the dragonfly seemed to be trying to send me a message. Then it hit me…

What message does the dragonfly convey?

 

Most commonly symbolized as change, dragonflies are a beauty and a wonder. Dragonflies signify positive renewal, and the sense of self that comes with maturity as well as the power of life in general knowing they must live life to the fullest, as a dragonfly’s life is short. This is a lesson all of us could take to heart.
Some Native Americans believe dragonflies are the souls of the dead. There are also many cultures that believe that the meaning of a dragonfly is happiness, courage and subconscious thoughts. It is also believed that if you see two dragonflies paired together that they represent love and maturity. In some cultures the dragonfly represents good luck, prosperity, swiftness, purity, harmony and strength, positive force, and connection with the earth.

It’s like that “a-ha” moment came to me all at once. And I knew instantly. Of course I thanked God and my angels for this wonderful sense of knowing that they’ve shared with me.

And as I have no idea what dragonflies like best, I could only thank the dragonfly for her open heart as she left.

Going back to my lab with a feeling of gratitude and love I started straight for whatever came to mind; first the pink lotus, then neroli, lavender and my Goddess Blend…one by one they all appeared in my mind’s eye. What a wonderful experience.

I’ve since learned that the dragonfly blend I added to an aloe cucumber lotion for my friend has helped her deal with sleeping better through the night and not getting as overheated which kept her so uncomfortable that she normally couldn’t sleep.  She’s raved about dragonfly lotion and even came back to purchase a larger one. Yay! It worked!

How blessed I am… truly.

How blessed we all are.

    • hi Judy,
      I’m just starting out too and have heard that Diamond Glaze is great for making embedded pieces and watchmakers glue is best for gluing small things as it has a very small tip to place glue exactly where you need it. Try ebay or ornamentea.com for purchase options. good luck!
