- Balance, light beings
Dragonflies are very ancient creatures and have been around nearly 200 million years. Their bodies and wings are often covered in beautiful jewel-like hues of green, blue, purple etc. This colouring reminds us of the lesson that as we age our true inner colours come through in a beautiful way.
They have fantastic movement and manoeuvrability in the air and can fly up to 30mph. They spend their early life in water then as they mature and start to fly live the next part of their life in the air. Part of their lesson can be to bring clarity (air) to something emotionally (water) complex. Likewise they can also help bring balance to situations that feel very rational and need some emotion.
Dragonflies are connected with light. Their many colours are actually often caused by how their body and skin refracts and reflects light rather than the actual pigments in their skin. They have been connected with mysticism and magic. In Japan they are often associated with light and joy.
In summary, you may wish to have near you the medicine of dragonfly if you are seeking balance between your emotions and thoughts and if you wish to be reminded of the eternal existence of all things and that all that exists (including us) is light.

- Bridge between supernatural and natural worlds, hope, equality
The rainbow, featuring an arc of seven colours (red, orange, yellow, green, battle, indigo and violet), is typically regarded as a bridging symbol - bringing together the supernatural and natural worlds. The arc of the rainbow touching the surface of the earth is seen as representing hope, treasure and fertility, as the familiar phrase, 'a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow' emphasizes.
The symbol has featured widely in different cultures, each adding their own unique meaning. In Greek myths, it was Iris the rainbow goddess who conveyed messages to earth from Zeus and Hera. In Norse legends, a rainbow representing the bridge Byfrost, and a similar notion was used in Japan for the seven-coloured staircase Buddha comes down when returning from heaven. The rainbow features in Christianity, too, notably during the great flood when a rainbow appeared above Noah's ark.
