Yesterday, I was blessed to have 4 different dragonfly experiences, including the 2 different dragonflies in the photos.
First, a dragonfly alighted on my arm, briefly, in my backyard, but long enough for me to notice him. Then he proceeded to zoom around me until he landed on a chair nearby to bask in the sun. Later when I went out with a friend to an outdoor cafe, we were sitting outside and as I was telling her the story, another dragonfly swooped over to visit, landing on me and then flying away, but not before my friend witnessed the encounter. Of course, we were thinking 3 is the magic number! How extraordinary for dragonflies to be flying in November in the northeast! It’s pretty unheard of due to the temperatures. Suddenly, my friend gasped and pointed ~ a ladybug was sitting on my right shoulder, but as I turned my head to look at her, she flew away.
Ok, 2 dragonflies, a ladybug and I made direct physical contact! I was elated. I wonder what it means?! Do you know? Can you help me?
Then I got lucky and as we were leaving the cafe, there was a dragonfly resting on a table and as we walked back to the car, we saw yet another dragonfly was on a nearby porch (photos above). Surely it isn’t normal for those dragonflies nor ladybug to be hanging around in November. Could it be an angelic visitor or 2 or 3? ♥
Have you ever had any encounters with a dragonfly or a ladybug? Please share!
Does anyone know the meaning of dragonflies and a ladybug? Any help is appreciated!
Hi Yvonne, I think there are signs in nature for us everyday. I love the symbol of the dragonfly and ladybug and I am sure they were sending you a message. There maybe something here for you.
The dragonfly is generally associated with the symbolic meaning of transformation. Here are common meanings:
Change and transformation are coming
Joy, lightness of being
Symbol of the realm of emotions, invitation to dive deeper into your feeling
Being on the lookout for illusions and deceits, whether are external or personal
Connection with nature’s spirits
I love, love, love your messages and they ring so clearly to me, Karen. I was tempted to try to look up the symbolism but then decided to open it up to my readers. Many thanks dear friend. You are an angel to many, me included. xo.
You are an angel to me too Yvonne. Much love.
Much love to you Karen…we are blessed to have connected. ♥♥♥
It means you’re very sweet. They were probably waiting for the butterfly to join them.
Ahh, I would have loved for a butterfly to join them as then I would have known the trio of spiritual love that was visiting. But alas, I love your comment that I’m sweet. You are sweet as well. xo
I love the idea … Yet the answer lies within 💛
I know Val, you are right. ♥ I guess I need to meditate on the experience. I believe they heralded change, perhaps angelic visits and love. But that’s just my mind talking, not my soul. I figured if I put it out there, perhaps a reader would be able to add a spark. ♥ I’m always grateful for our connection. xo
Dragon flies fly to somewhere warm that means that it probably got separated and needed to rest. the lady bug probably got tired trying to find a warm place to hibernate. thought your shoulder was warm then got scared and flew away.
Heartfelt hugs to dearest Jordyn and to you for sharing her gift with me. Please let her know I think she is right xo
Hi! I was reading your post and I couldn’t think what I wanted to say. She was sitting with me so I asked her to read it and respond. She was so serious. It was so cute. She read the whole thing and asked daddy about if dragonflies and ladybugs flew south. She was happy to offer input. ♡
I love that she offered her message to me and that you wrote it! It makes it so special ♥
She typed it herself♡
Aww…even sweeter! xo
It means you were a very lucky lady and that we are lucky readers. These things happen and most people don’t notice or are bothered. You were pleased. Most people who might have been pleased, wouldn’t take the time to share the experience. Thanks.
Thank you Dan. I shared because I had hoped that others would be moved to share what they know with me as well as to share the lovely experience in case someone needed a sign. Thank you for taking the time to write to me and to read my post. Have a lovely, lucky day! ♥
Karen shed light on the dragonfly, so let’s see what the ladybug has for you…
The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. Worries begin to dissipate. New happiness comes about. Ladybug also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace.
Alternatively she could be signalling that you can leave your worries behind and that new happiness is on its way. Ladybug signals you to to not be scared to live your own truth. Protect your truth and know that it is yours to honor.
Sounds promising doesn’t it? You could do much worse than to have either the dragonfly or the ladybug spirits around you Yvonne…I’d say it was a pretty good day!! xoxo
Dearest Rhonda, how sweet of you to tell me about the ladybug! ♥ Oh yes, I heralded their appearances in my life with awe as well as embracing their messages and feeling such gratitude towards kind friends such as you, Karen and everyone else who took the time to read and comment as well as giving me much needed information. Bless you dear friend. xoxo
My husband had one land on his neck the other day Yvonne it was so beautiful. I love Karen’s interpretation. My husband is transforming after months of training in Karate with the kids he is fitter and stronger I see a massive transformation in his mind and body. Love that you had such wonderful moments.
Oh my goodness, how wonderful Kath! Thanks for sharing ~ I love Karen’s interpretation as well. Big hugs ♥
I agree with Healing grief that the dragonfly means transformation. It is powerful in Native American spiritual circles! ❤
I love when I get tidbits from others who help me along this path and journey! Transformation is huge right now for me which explains the dragonflies’ appearances! Thanks Susan! ♥
Ladybugs are supposed to bring you luck, but I’m not sure about the dragonfly.
Thanks Lulu! I have heard about ladybugs and luck as well! ♥
