   Dragonflies are beautiful as they fly by. They  represent illusion and change. The dragonfly inhabits both air and water. Its wings reflect and refract light, showing us that life may not be what we think, take another look through the illusions.

Attract Dragonflies

  1. Buttonbush and seedbox are good choices for a dragonfly pond’s edge. Place some flat rocks around the pond’s edge. Make sure your pond has over 70% sunlight. Make sure you have underwater plants for the nymphs to land on, since only the adults land on above ground vegetation. Dragonflies eat mosquitoes, make sure you don’t use a bug zapper which will kill the dragonflies, not the mosquitoes.


Legend How Dragonfly was born

According to legend dragonfly was born from dragon. The legend goes like this. Dragon had scales like Dragonfly’s wings. Coyote tricked dragon into changing form, and it’s shape became dragonfly. 

Quotes and Poems

“Time is for dragonflies and angels. The former live too little and the latter live too long.”  — James Thurber

The Dragon-fly

By Alfred Lord Tennyson

Today I saw the dragon-fly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.

The Dragonfly
By Louise Bogan

You are made of almost nothing
But of enough
To be great eyes
And diaphanous double vans;
To be ceaseless movement,
Unending hunger
Grappling love.

Link between water and air,
Earth repels you.
Light touches you only to shift into iridescence
Upon your body and wings.

Twice-born, predator,
You split into the heat.
Swift beyond calculation or capture
You dart into the shadow
Which consumes you.

You rocket into the day.
But at last, when the wind flattens the grasses,
For you, the design and purpose stop.

And you fall
With the other husks of summer.

Lavender  has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing.  Lavender can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.  It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.

Wear the scent

  1. Apply essential oils to your body. Apply it to your pulse points such as inside wrists, behind the ears, base of your throat, elbows, behind our knees. These are the areas of your body where you can feel your heartbeat.  These areas release more heat, therefore interacting with your pheromones, a chemical secreted  that influences the behavior of others of the same species, commonly know as a sexual attractant.
  2. wash your clothes with lavender scented laundry products

Great aid for relaxing and winding down

  1. Spray your pillow with lavender mist spray.
  2. Plant lavender in your yard. Make sure you plant it where people can brush by, releasing more of the scent.
  3. Add a dried lavender bouquet to your environment.
  4. After lavender scented  candles burn down, break up the remains and put it in a decorative bowl for additional scent usage.

Balance or boost stamina and energy

  1. put one drop in 4 fl. oz. of rice or goat’s milk.

Beyond Mystical Art Print

Beyond Mystical Art Print

I love green, leafy trees. I love to peer up through the branches at the dappling shades of color, to hear the wind rustle as if it were speaking to me through the dancing leaves. It all seems so chaotic, the branches and leaves twisting one way or another. But if I climb the tree and sit among the branches as high as I can get, I see that there is nothing random about the leaves at all. Somehow, each branch connected to each stem connected to each leaf has perfectly positioned that leaf to capture even the tiniest hint of sun rays through the green boughs. There is a purpose, a pattern to the chaos.

These patterns in nature are everywhere – seashells, sunflowers, snowflakes, salt crystals. All unique. All perfect. All the way down to the cellular level. Science has confirmed for us what the ancients already knew, the existence of universal patterns that connect every living and non-living thing on and off this planet.

As an energy worker, I know that when we emulate this sacred geometry in our art and music, we increase our existing vibration within the universe. Buddhists will emulate it in the creation of mandalas with colored sand and meditate on the pattern for days, even weeks, in deep connection with their higher selves before returning the painstakingly perfect design to nature as an acceptance of the tenet of impermanence.

Many of the art prints and home décor offered at Quintessence Creations include sacred geometry in the artists’ works, such as in this mystical rendition of owls posted here. I am careful to choose works that will inspire, works that can help us resonate at higher frequencies. Having these items in our homes gives us the opportunity to pause and meditate on the beautiful depiction of nature’s patterns – without having to climb a tree to find them. Deep in such meditation is where we touch a higher vibration, where we find purpose, where we find our own sacred pattern in the universe.

Keep checking those frequencies,

Angel Trinket Box-Heaven's GiftThere’s a whole lot of wishing going on this time of year. Wishes for new bikes, the latest gadget, or even to not be picked for washing the dishes after the big family holiday meal.  As a kid with plenty of wishes myself, I often heard the phrase – “Ah, well, if only wishing made it so.” That’s the grown-ups’ way of reminding kids they have to work for what they want. As true as that is, I have learned that, when it is important enough, wishing sometimes can, in fact, make it so.

When a person makes a wish, she is sending a message to the Universe. That message is energy, pure light, traveling farther than we can imagine. The stronger the wish, the farther it travels, and before long, it comes back to you.  That cyclical process of sending and returning energy is how a wish can manifest into something real. But be careful – the Universe will return to you whatever it is you send out.

I know a woman who had fallen on tough times, had lost touch with her family, was a single mom, and lived in an area where there was very little public transportation. She wished and wished that she didn’t have to use her broken down old car.  She focused her energy on how bad that car was, how unsafe and unreliable, and before long it broke down completely. She was sending that negative energy out into the Universe, and it kept returning to her.

One day, she met a wise woman who told her that she had been unconsciously wishing for a broken car. She had allowed her fear-energy to be her message to the Universe. From that day forward, the mom flipped her wish to something positive. She began to wish for reliable transportation, visioning herself arriving on time to work and safely getting her daughter to and from childcare. She wrote her wishes down, solidifying them, sending each one with a mental picture of herself and her daughter smiling as they got in and out of a vehicle. Thirty days later, a sister she hadn’t heard from in two years called out of the blue to say she had a feeling that the single mom needed a car, and bought her one.

True story. If it is important enough to you, the Universe will hear and return your wish. Make it positive. Strengthen it by visioning and writing it down on little bits of a paper. Treasure your wish in a trinket box. Read it every day. Feel the wish as if it were already true. Before long, it just might be.

I wish you may, I wish you might, have all the wishes you wish tonight.

Nancy
