What does awakening have to do with the lifecycle of the Dragonfly? Everything. From life underwater and unaware, swimming in the element of water (emotions); to transforming. Each and every one of us are here to Evolve / Unfold / Flower. We didn’t come here to work a 9 to 5 job, eat dinner, watch T.V., sleep, repeat. We are here to GROW. We are either growing (evolving) or dying (devolving) every second of the day; the choices we make determine the direction we are headed.
Together, Sylvia and I, bring over 110 years of combined experience, knowledge, a vast reservoir of resources, tools and insight to help guide you on your journey. We provide healing services, mentoring, spiritual coaching, readings, and much more.

“To understand the true nature of the coming awakening, one can find a beautiful parallel in the life cycle of the dragonfly. Dragonflies spend much of their early lives underwater. As underwater insects they are known as nymphs, and unlike most pond insects, they do not have to come to the surface for air. For most of their lives, nymphs live totally underwater where they are highly successful predators, feeding on anything from leaf litter to small fish. During this stage of its life, the nymph goes through a series of “molts”, stages of maturity in which it sheds its skin but still remains a nymph. These stages of the insect’s life can last several years, and during this time it has no idea whatsoever of what kind of future lies ahead. It is undergoing a series of “hidden” mutations.
Then one day, all of a sudden, some sleeping gene deep within is triggered, and the nymph does something totally out of character. It finds the stalk of a nearby plant and climbs out of the water. For the first time in its life, it tastes air and direct sunlight.
Once the nymph has left the safety of its underwater environment, the sunlight begins to work on it, catalyzing what will be its final molt. It is at this stage that the true magic occurs, as the advanced creature hidden within the nymph cracks the outer larval skin. Over a period of several hours, four crumpled wings appear, and the distinctive slender thorax begins to uncurl. What is of great metaphorical relevance at this stage concerns the element of water. As the emerging dragonfly rises out of the element of water, and prepares to be reborn into a new life in the element of air, the water that still lies within its body becomes the key to the transformation process. Through a process of hydraulics, the water within the nymph’s body is pumped into the emerging wings and thorax, causing them to unfurl and spread out for the first time. In other words, the dragonfly assumes its aerodynamic shape by means of the water from its old life. This water is what drives its mutation from nymph to dragonfly. As soon as all the water is expended and the dragonfly is fully extended, it takes to the air and begins its new life.” ~ Gene Keys
In order to awaken to your full potential you must be aware of your Shadow, what lies in your subconscious. Once aware you have the opportunity to transform this energy and rise to a higher level of consciousness.
The following are two Shadow frequencies that manifest differently; one is reactive and the other is repressive. Do you blame? Do you criticize? Do you React or Repress? Being truly honest with yourself is imperative on this journey.
Blaming – Reactive NatureGene Key 55
The reactive nature externalizes its complaints by specifically blaming something or someone else. When we blame another, we fire an arrow that removes self-responsibility for our situation. In this sense, we ‘invest’ aspects of ourselves within other beings, giving away our true power and presence. All blame is an expression of anger projected outwardly, but in this sense it is not
pure. Pure anger is a release of the primal energy of fear that may be triggered by an external source yet does not target that source. The moment one blames another, one is again the victim of one’s own drama. It is impossible to blame another for one’s fate and simultaneously realize that one is simply an actor in a play. The very act of seeing through the seriousness of life releases the energy of blame. From the reactive side, true freedom occurs when the arrows of blame are caught in mid flight before they reach their target.
…or something like this:
Complaining – Repressive Nature
The 55th Shadow of Victimization has two main forms of expression. The repressive nature manifests as complaining. Complaining is an unconscious mindset in which one makes oneself the central victim within one’s own drama. Every time one complains, outwardly or internally, one effectively dis-empowers oneself. The repressive nature tends to complain inwardly, taking a pessimistic view of life whereas the reactive nature tends towards finding a specific external target to blame. When one gets caught in the frequency of complaining, one is caught in the net of the drama of life — the ‘maya’. The energy of the complaint itself serves to strengthen the illusion that life is so very hard. Apart from reinforcing itself in this way, complaining also causes sustained general wear on our physical organism. Freedom occurs when we see through our deepest unconscious patterns to the heart of this energetic.Gene Key 55
