For me one of the many things I value is my friendships with others, and of course very much theirs with me.
As a friend I try to turn up, be present, in my intention at any moment when they feel they need me. Sometimes, due to other things happening in my life I am not always able to be there, right in that moment for them. But in some way I do reach out and show them the love I have in them and the belief that life will sort itself out... and so on.
The big thing for me is if I have said I will be there to help them in some way, call them or whatever I have agreed to do...regardless of whatever comes up in my life, I WILL follow through, come hell or high water. As someone once said to me... “....unless you have a death certificate there are NO excuses.”
The reason I am sharing, is that in our world at present, we talk about, mostly via social media, having lots of friends and count them as being there when we need them, or vice versa. But sadly, it isn’t necessarily the case. Someone once said to me, “In your line of work you must have lots and lots of friends?” To which I replied, “....no actually I have one or two... maybe even three people who have been there in my life, to whom I, with blessings call friends”. They seemed surprised and I feel a little disappointed. But for me, friends are a very special connection. And friendship takes work, time, commitment. It cannot be one sided in any way. As you sow, so shall you reap!
Yes, I have many acquaintances, and for that I feel doubly, if not triply blessed. I am truly not sharing this with you for you to feel sorry for me, but instead inviting you to reflect upon those in your world who have been there for you, through thick & thin, laughter & tears and STILL love you as much as you love them. These are what true friends look like, in every shape and form, so value and be thankful for them.
Which is my segue to change the conversation to Dragonflies and what they mean to me and how this all ties together.
On my tour to the Maritimes this Fall, I was blessed to have an event at Dragonflys & Dreams in Sydney, Cape Breton, on completion, the owner Sharon, blessed me with a beautiful dragonfly crystal hanging one for my window at home. And it now has pride of place next to other crystals & a stained glass piece in my office area.
The Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. Which at this moment in our world, we are facing both personally & worldly EVERY single day. So keep that in mind folks.
As a totem it is about wisdom, and when it turns up in our life it is a reminder to bring about more lightness & joy allowing our true colors to shine through. To be our vibrational self on all levels and standing tall and powerful in that energy.
They appear in our life, when it is time to bring about change, this is when spirit are engaging us to see our full potential. To live and experience life for our self in acceptance that metamorphosis is about to occur. And with that I say “Bring it on, I am ready!”
Spirit offers up to us this self realization every day, in some form or another. Whether it is something we see, hear or discover. Maybe someone gives us something or guides us to somewhere. And in that moment, when we reach our own “Aha” realization, we are reminded that spirit are there for us, in our corner, so to speak, helping us every step of the way.
I truly pray your day, your week, and your life is filled with friendship, dragonflies & self realization and in every moment your vibrational essence turns up and is there in intention.

Mama Bear Mode
I am not sure if it is the time of year, or just something within me that feels very protective of myself and others at this time. I call it my mama bear mode... a time when maybe I have to roar loudly to keep away danger and to bring close, those that I love and care for.
So, in an effort to understand this instinctual, and protective side that is rising up within me, I did what I usually do, when faced with something that is outside of my humanness. I meditate.
The first thing I was faced with in this time of reflection was the symbolism of the bear.
The supreme fearlessness, filling me with strength & raw, yet focused power.
I saw that within me was the role of guardian, in a grounded and real way, standing in my power, creating a spiritual circle around those who I love and care for, protecting and bringing about awareness.
I heard these vibrational words that I will share with you all now.
You are never alone...
Sometimes we need to step into our own solitude, trust & be who we are.
You are grounded, manifesting your intuitive gifts providing a positive outcome.
Harness this powerful energy & connect emotionally to the Universe on all levels.
YOUR roar can heal, protect & balance all around you.
Stand strong! Be you & draw close those you love & trust.
For all of you out there... whatever your gender, whatever your belief, whatever your journey, know that these words are for us all.
