naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the
creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy
of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration,
imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a
human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us
all one to another.
We are but reflections of one another, until we are
reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts from our purest
essence. And we will then each be one to another the most persistent of
reminders of the greatness that lies within each of us. For it is then that we are
projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves
from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to
everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go
unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift or the cover on
And so with this, we have the
naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe on January 27, 2008:
FINAL EMERGENCE OF TRUE SELF &
Dragonfly is the truth teller and the shatterer of illusion. She reminds
us to always see the truth of the matter and to remember the absolute
power of truth. She wants us to understand that reality resonates
differently in different dimensions, which can affect the way we view
the truth. She, however, can help us access the truth from all
perspectives, high, low or laterally and can help us traverse all
realities. She teaches us to let go of the energetic heaviness of our
internal baggage and see the truth, because that is what will lighten us
up and allow us to ascend into a new way of being.
A person carrying Dragonfly energy is someone who
has had an amazing struggle to give birth to their own truth and to step
fully into their personal power. This is no simple transformation, but
rather one that has been unfolding at a more accelerated pace over a 2
to 5 year period. It is now at the time of emergence and shifting
into the power of flight that we however, are at our most
vulnerable and must be safeguarded. For as we unfold from our hard shell
we are still gaining our strength to fly. Poised on the brink of flight
we stand into a higher and finer life than we may have possibly
imagined or ever thought possible.
The omnidirectional vision of the
dragonfly and her ability to maneuver with agility and laterally as well
as forward and backward motion gives her vast amounts of information.
This applies to people who use her energy. They can quickly dart here
and there to get what they need in all directions and all spans of time
to gather wisdom and truth. The trick is to apply it correctly into
To the person carrying Dragonfly
energy there is a great deal of importance in facing the truth.
Dragonfly knows that all power lies within our ability to know our own
selves and for this knowledge to come forth we must shed our layers. For
often, while on the outside there is honesty, there is an incongruency
on the inside and before the emergence the truth was not always
reconciled from within. Dragonfly breaks us out of denial and allows us
to look at issues from all angles, quickly and easily. She will bring
you the truth about yourself and others if you will let her. And the
more strength you garner the more truth you can tolerate, the more
connected to your consciousness and your conscience you can be. It is
when you are fully connected to your conscience that you reestablish the
inner voice that gives you the precious guidance to act on what is right
for you and to let go of what does not serve without judgement and
without regret. You, in your infinite knowing of the truth understand
that all paths lead to the same place.
I see the truth and remind you that you can integrate all the areas of
your life by adhering to the truth. Accept what you see. That does not
mean that you may not seek to make changes, but you do so quickly and
decisively, without judgment or undue drama.
I ask you to connect your chakra
system and reestablish the link from your intuition to your gut. Yes,
the truth can hurt, but it will set you free. And it is this freedom
that will keep you alive, for anything in your life that does not foster
your freedom - freedom to love, live in peace, to have your needs met is
in reality killing you softly.
I am a warrior and a predator in
the insect world. I can help you find your inner warrior so that you can
better maneuver in your world. I am a master of the skies, yet I have
emerged out of the water as a young nymph. I am an irridescently
beautiful acrobat, deft and swift. And now that I have taken flight I am
a guardian of my pond.
Dragonfly can empower you to
transform your life by taking good care of yourself in these final
stages of your emergence into your full power. Let her help you fly!

I am an emerging leader in my community and my family.

I tell the truth as I know it.

I am evolving and growing.
I seek to explore my full human potential.
I uncover my special genius and use it to create magic in my life and
for the world.
Dragonfly is a symbol of long term transformation at the cellular level.
She is a gatekeeper to the comprehension of higher knowledge and
Dragonfly is often associated with
nature spirits or the fae realm. Being a creature who begins life in
water and ultimately emerges into the sky makes her a powerful archetype
for freedom from both internal and external constraints.
Dragonfly's body is in the shape
of a cross. This signifies her release from suffering and launch into
the Christ consciousness and into the realm of true unconditional love,
which does include tough love. After all she is a protector and a

As with all insects, the larvae
undergo a series of molts as they grow and develop. While some species
have relatively short larval development times (1-2 months from the egg
hatching to emergence), most spend at least a year and some much longer
(5 years or more in places where the climate is arduous) as aquatic
Dragonfly and damselfly larvae are aquatic creatures. At the end of the
final larval stage, the nymph climbs out into the air, perhaps onto a
stone, or a plant stalk, or even some algae floating at the surface. Its
position stabilized, the insect splits this last larval skin open along
a suture on the back of the thorax and pulls itself out through this
hole. Odonate development lacks the familiar pupal stage (e.g.
chrysalis of a butterfly). By the time the larva leaves the water, an
adult, albeit a rather uninflated one, exists inside the skin which is
about to be shed.
After the insect has extracted itself, a period of time, usually a
couple of hours or so, elapses during which the body and wings expand
and cure sufficiently to withstand flight. Emergence is not an easy
process, and the insect is incredibly vulnerable as it prepares for life
in an entirely new medium. Many things can go wrong, and sometimes do.
Weather changes can have disastrous results. Winds and rain can cause
irreparable damage by bringing things into contact with the developing
body or wings. The insects can become dislodged, falling into the water
where they can drown or be eaten. Where suitable emergence sites are
limited, larvae can walk over one another disrupting development. During
emergence, the insect can't fly away, and hence is vulnerable to
numerous predators. Emergence requires a lot of energy and some insects
After curing sufficiently, the insect, now in its more familiar
dragonfly or damselfly form, makes its maiden flight, away from the
water. Compared to the mature adults you might be familiar with, insects
which have just completed their emergence lack the vibrant colors
(especially noticeable in the eyes). Their wings have a higher gloss, as
though covered with cellophane/saran wrap and look more fragile. The
maiden flight is generally short (more like a hop) and does not appear
strong or well coordinated - the flight muscles are weak and the
thoracic skeleton has not fully hardened. Recently emerged insects are
often snapped up by hungry or nesting birds.
In a week or two the dragonfly
"colors up" and becomes the beautiful vibrantly colored acrobats that
help keep the mosquito population under control. Now fully emerged and
developed, she plays the vital role of guardian and protector of her
