The Dragonfly With the Bittersweet Tail

The Dragonfly -

In many cultures, the dragonfly has taken on a rather mystical essence. Many people believe dragonfly sightings specifically represent personal growth. According to dragonflytransitions.com “In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life.”

 Ted Andrews, in his book Animal Speak, says, “The spiritual meaning of the Dragonfly totem symbolizes going past self-created illusions that limit growth and change. Dragonflies are the embodiment of color magic, and transformation. It reminds you of the Divine message of Light.

The Bittersweet vine

Almost all sources online, including AuntyFlo.com say, “The most popular meaning for bittersweet, or woody nightshade is truth and honesty.” 

This site also states that the Bittersweet vine corresponds to the Number 11 in Numerology. Number 11 is known as the Master Number because it has its own unique and powerful vibrations. It symbolizes faith and is considered mystical, intuitive and spiritual.

The Colors

Purple, represented by the dragonfly, is the color of highest vibration, the colour of the 7th chakra.

Red, represented by the color that most bittersweet fruit eventually becomes, is the color of lowest vibration, the colour of the 1st chakra.  All other colors, and chakras, fall somewhere in between.
