The Isleta Cross is a very old Pueblo design said to have originated from the Moors and Spaniards. To the Pueblo Indians the double bar cross resembled the dragonfly and they adopted it has their own spiritual symbol. The dragonfly inspires creativity and assists on the path of discovery. It strips away the negative energies that hold one back, and helps to achieve ones ambitions. The dragonfly is the keeper of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability.
