I remember the very first time I was speaking to someone about the work I wanted to do.  My daughter was a toddler and we were all sitting in the garden drinking tea when a large Dragonfly settled on my knee.  I’d never encountered one close-up before and I was intrigued by its intricate construction and wonderful iridescent colours.  I later read that dragonflies have been around for 180 million years; imagine!  And this one was called an Emperor Dragonfly.

I decided it was an omen and that “dragonfly medicine” would be making a significant contribution to my work purpose.  I studied its qualities and I’ve always included the Dragonfly in my branding.  The life journey of a Dragonfly is a good model I feel.  Starting off in the murky waters (emotional realm) of the pond, they gradually crawl up a reed and morph into a beautiful, jewelled creature of the air (mental realm).  They are the living embodiment of a Plutonian-like transformation in which the fullness of their true colours only emerge with time.  Like us, they respond well to warmth and light, but unlike us they can travel up to 30 mph without a vehicle!  They also dazzle us with their aerial dexterity, bobbing up and down, shooting backwards as well as forwards, spiralling in figures of “8” like DNA strands.  They are natural dancers, reminding us to let life in and to move us so that our creative imagination is a force for change and the brightness of our vision can shine in its own light.

So, 17 years later… Dragonfly is still right up there representing the essence of what I’m most passionate about – transforming creative potential and helping mid-wife wonderful new visions into the world.  Have a look at my new website www.marynonde.com and let me know what you think.
