Damselfly: The Power of Light


While taking a break from watering the flowers, I sat down on a bench to soak up the morning sunshine. To my delight, a lovely blue damselfly flitted by, capturing my attention. Twisting and turning her diaphanous wings like a glider, she touched down on Our Lady of Light. May is the month dedicated primarily to the Beloved Mother Mary. Her beauty and fragrance are like the grace and scent of roses in the garden.  She is both the Lily of the Valley and the Rose of Sharon. 

The damselfly patiently waited for me to return with my camera.  A symbolic picture as Dragonfly signifies the Power of Light. A dragonfly has one set of wings, while a damselfly has two.  The bright colors of these ethereal creatures take time to develop, and as such reflect that with maturity our own true colors come forth.  This is the lesson she teaches.

Her quick flight maneuvers imitate how light itself moves and is directed. 

If a dragonfly comes your way, it may indicate you need some fresh air in regard to something emotional.  You may need a new perspective or make a change.   It could also indicate that you are neglecting your emotions?  Are you being too rational about everything?  Are you not keeping the color of emotions alive.  

I'm grateful for the angel messages delivered by nature.  A reminder to look to the Light.

Love and peace,

Rae Karen
