There are few times in one’s life where he or she is as vulnerable as when one is dying. Astral Dragonfly was created with the idea that death does not have to be something we fear. Death is sometimes viewed as something that is out of our control.
Astral Dragonfly has been formed not only to provide services to the dying, but to create conversations about death in our everyday lives. We all have questions about death and most of us have some hesitancy or resistance to talking about death. Astral Dragonfly aims to create a safe space for these conversations and challenging thoughts.
astral, adj. Of, connected with, or proceeding from the stars; consisting of stars, starry.
astral plane n. a realm of immaterial existence, esp. one posited as an ethereal or eternal counterpart to physical or bodily reality
Native Americans perceived dragonflies as the “souls of the dead” so a dragonfly visitation around a loved one’s death could well signify the loved one’s soul taking form in the spirit of a dragonfly. It offers the assurance their soul is free.
