Hedonism is an amazing bubble of freedom on the island of Jamaica where you can be who you want to be, strip down to your naked self, and feel the freedom of being in the elements.
On the first day of my most recent trip there I was gifted a beautiful dragonfly pendant which I wore as a necklace and it became the symbolism of my time at Hedo.
The theme of many conversations I had was about letting go of the old and transforming into the new. Letting go loved ones who had died, and making way for new love to unfold. Giving thanks for the old loves, the lost loves, past loves… and spreading the wings, shining bright and welcoming the new and the light…
For myself I felt a freedom to be, and to do whatever I wanted to do, without any expectations, plans, pre-arranged dates, commitments or “have to’s”, except being on time for my massages!!!!
My life is all about scheduling, being on time, being “on” – this was a real “holiday” from having to, and a relaxation into just being. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to be, except me.
My intention for 2018 is to honor myself as the transformational being that I am and also give myself permission to be myself and express that in all my interactions with others.
As Peter Boxall said, “The Spirit of the Dragonfly’ reminds us that everything is possible, we can achieve our dreams and our goals, we learn to understand about ourselves, and our self belief. The Dragonfly Spirit is the keeper of our dreams, seeing out true potential and ability… We must leave behind our old beliefs of powerlessness, irrational fears, and false limitations, you have the choice of your beliefs and your focus for the future.” http://dra
The other symbolism related to the dragonfly that I feel I embody is that ability to live life to the fullest and be in the moment.
“By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t and make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis.This ability lets you live your life without regrets like the great dragonfly.” https://www.dragonfly-site.com/meaning-symbolize.html
So for 2018 and my immediate now I choose to fly freely, shine brightly and be all I can be…
You? What are you intentions for this next stage of your life?
