Draconic House protection

Draconic House protection

by Kerowyn J’Karrah SilverDrake, 1994

The purpose of this ritual is to cleanse your personal space of unwanted energies, spirits, emotions, etc. and then shield it from “re-infestation.” It’s generally a good idea to do this ritual at least once a year, but it can be done anytime you feel there is a need for it. It should definitely be done before moving into a new home, or after remodeling your present home as any structural modifications will break any already established protective seals. It is a pretty standard magical format used in a variety of different traditions.

Needed Items: 1) a nice bell or chime 2) purification incense or sage smudge stick (if you use a smudge stick, also use a heavy, *clean,* preferably new ashtray lined with sand to place it on) 3) small hand fan 4) protection incense 5) small, sturdy tray table if you are doing more than one room 6) small hand bell or chime 7) a consecrated string of bells to hang on your inner door knob of each exterior leading door if doing an entire house or apartment. 8) a dish of salt water 9) Normal altar equipment If you are just doing a single room, Cast a formal Circle and “push” the Circle’s perimeter so that it matches the exact dimensions of your room. If you will be moving about your entire dwelling, you won’t be casting a formal Circle. You should, however, still call the Dragons of the Quarters, invite your Dragon companion(s). You should also be sure that the final room has an outside exit. If you are in an apartment and your main door leads to a hallway, make sure there is an open window to the outside available in the last room you intend to cleanse.

The Ritual:

Step 1: Stand for a moment and commune with those whom you have called to assist you to let them know what you are planning on doing. When you feel ready say:

Dragons of Power, Dragons of Light! Dragons of Wisdom, Dragons of Might! Lend me your magic, lend me your aid! Lend me your guidance as this spell is made!

Step 2: Hold your hands over the salt water and say:

As salt dissolves in water, so too shall the hold of any unwelcome and unwanted influences and forces that may be attached to my place, my property or my person! In the name(s) of (deity) and my Dragon allies, and by my will so mote it be!

If you are going to be doing multiple rooms, place the water bowl, wand, purification and protection incenses and burner (or smudge stick and ashtray) and fan on the tray and set it all by the door of the room you are currently working in.

Step 3: pick up the purification incense or smudge stick and walk around the room , fanning the smoke to be sure it reaches all the corners, in any closets, and behind/under the furniture, etc. Visualize the smoke driving all the unwanted stuff into the burning perimeter of the Circle to be consumed by Dragon Fire. Trace a pentacle before each door, window and mirror (also: vents, drains, fireplace openings, etc.) with the incense to seal it. As you move about the room say:

By Dragon magic and the power of Fire and Air, I banish for all time any unwelcome or unwanted energies, forces and influences from this space! Let this place be Purified and sealed!

If you are doing multiple rooms, start at the door and drive drive the stuff before you as you circle the room and then out the door into the next room. Seal the door with a pentagram to keep the stuff from getting back in.

Step 4: Return to your work station and pick up the bell. Following the same path as before, ring the bell continuously as you walk the room, paying special attention to the door, windows and mirrors. Visualize the sound of the bell driving any goop that may have escaped the smoke either into the Dragon Fire of the Circle’s boundary or out the door (don’t worry about the seal already at the door… it’s one-way: bad stuff goes out but can’t come back in) you started from.

Draconic Protection Ritual

Draconic Protection Ritual

Copyrighted Kerowyn J’Karrah SilverDrake, 1994

This ritual is to be used when someone has decided (unjustly) to make your life miserable. For example if someone at work has decided they want *your* job and starts spreading malicious rumors, or if someone at school is talking about you behind your back, etc.

The purpose of this ritual is to confound their ability to cause you injury or distress. This ritual is *NOT* intended to substitute for taking sound legal action if you are being physically threatened, bullied, stalked, or otherwise harassed. It can *help* dealing with these types of situations, but as in all things let your own common sense prevail.

Needed items: Normal altar equipment; Protection incense (or frankincense & myrrh, or cinnamon incense); Protection oil (or Dragon’s blood oil); Supplicant candle (white or astrological); Personal item from supplicant to be used as a talisman. Perform Circle Casting and invite Companion Dragons

Step 1: Inscribe the candle with the following runes: Hagall: protection Raidho: justice Thurisaz: neutralization of enemies Uraz: to bring positive change Tir: victory Isa: halting unwanted forces Eolh: protection from evil and enemies Eihwaz: removal of obstacles Jera: bringing positive events to pass Be sure to concentrate on the need for protection as you carve the runes. “See” each rune as a layer of protection that nothing unwanted can penetrate.

Step 2: Anoint the candle with the protection oil and chant at least 4 times or until you feel an internal signal to stop:

Dragons of Power, Dragons of Light, Dragons of Wisdom, Dragons of Might, Lend me your magic, lend me your aid, Lend me your guidance as this spell is made!

Step 3: Light the protection incense and pass the candle through the smoke and say 4 times:

Might Dragons of Magic and Wisdom, I ask that you spread your wings of protection over (supplicant). With your great magic surround (supplicant) with protective energy. With your all consuming fire, sever all connections with those who bring harm or despair. Replace the candle and light.

Add more incense if necessary.

Step 4: Pick up the personal item and pass it through the candle flame (carefully) and through the smoke from the incense and say at least 4 times:

Great Dragons of Magic and Wisdom, infuse this (object) with your protective magic that (supplicant) may be safeguarded at all times. Let those who would do (supplicant) harm be confounded by smoke and let their harmful intentions and energies be consumed by Fire. So mote it be!

Add more incense if necessary, then leave all the items on the altar until the candle has burned itself out. Return the new amulet to the supplicant. This can also by done as a house protection rite using a magic cord in place of the personal items and substituting the phrase “this house” and “those within” in the appropriate places.

Dealing With Dragons

Dealing With Dragons

 

Dragons can be very difficult to deal with at times. They can be very arrogant, stubborn, and all mighty, and at other times very nice, co-operative, and respectful. It will all depend on how you approach a Dragon how they will react to you. Since they have come to be very cautious of humans, earning their trust and respect are the first things you need to do. By doing so, you will end up with a great relationship with them. Here are some things to keep in mind when dealing with them.

1. Don’t ever call a Dragon into your circle and start ordering them around. Treat them like you like to be treated. Give them the respect as equals and not servants, and they will work with you.

2. Don’t show them that you fear them. They have very heightened sense and can actually smell fear. If they detect any fear whatsoever they wont respect you as an equal and consider anything you do a waist of time and energy on their part.

3. Don’t ever attack a Dragon you have called. You called them; they didn’t call you.

4. Dragons are very intelligent. Don’t try and pull a fast one over on them.

5. Dragons tend to speak in riddles and symbolism. At least until you have worked with them for a while.

6. The only tool a Dragon respects (not fears) is the Athame/Sword, but only when wielded by a confident practitioner who is prepared to stand his ground.

7. If you feel uncomfortable with a certain Dragons presence, carefully and politely explain your wishes and desires concerning them. They will understand you and either work along with you or leave you be.

8. Before rejecting a Dragons help or presence, firstly find out what they have to show or teach you. They wont hang around where they are not wanted.

9. Always give them an offering. They wont do something for nothing.

10. Most Dragons tend to be subtle in their first few contacts with you. Be sensitive and extra aware of what is occurring around you for if there is anything that would endanger them they wont make their presence known.

11. Watch what you ask for, they take things literally and without mercy. Don’t leave any loopholes in any petition you present to them.

The Dragon Path for the Experienced Practitioner

The Dragon Path for the Experienced Practitioner

 

The Path to be coming a dragon mage for the experienced. After being in contact with your guardians and you’ve found yourself a guide on the astral world it’s time to work with the inner self. Like the path of the magician the path of the dragon mage is very similar to start off with. Your guide will help you through this processes.

1 Self Discovery – knowing yourself.

This journey can be difficult at times but the most important thing to remember is to be honest with yourself. Without honesty you’ll end up in more trouble than you started with. Self discovery comes first in any magickal discipline. Very occasionally a truly exceptional student can define him/herself through the process of learning, but most times you HAVE to learn about yourself first. While I am sure you are exceptional, that very quality should show you why knowing yourself is indeed critical to the process. During this process you should find out what triggers make you behave the way you do. With those triggers known you can start learning the discipline needed to bring magick into your life. Accomplish this and you can start living a magickal existence.

For example, many entities on other planes of existence routinely use your fears against you. If you come into conflict with them and you are afraid of small spaces and do not know it, or have not over come it, you may perceive yourself as suddenly being trapped in a small narrow space. This can paralyze you with fear, sapping your will to do anything to defend yourself, unable to move, caught in a fit of blind, helpless panic. This is an extremely common tactic.

Self-knowledge allows the practitioner to utilize the most powerful tool available. It is not in a spell book, it cannot be bought, although it can be “sold”, it is Will. How can ‘Will’ be sold? Easy, drink or eat to excess, take drugs, do anything that weakens the disciplined life you must lead to be a true dragon mage. When you know yourself, you can use your will to very potent effect.

Unless you truly understand what drives you, you will never develop the Will to use Magick effectively. Let me repeat this as it is a most critical point, unless you truly understand what drives you, you will NEVER develop the Will to use Magick effectively. Will is the key to magick. Knowing yourself is the key to Will. Control of the mind becomes easy when these techniques are applied. The mind is not used to discipline. Teaching it is a long process. It takes years. Once applied, the discipline will become second nature. You will gain confidence, self-control, and be able to apply lessons in a useful manner for the rest of your life.

If what drives you is selfish that is all right, 90% of the accomplishment in the world are done for selfish purposes. Including the “altruistic” ones. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are doing something for someone else’s benefit when your true motive is to get noticed/praised/patted on the back/revenge/one up a rival/ well, you get the point. What is the pleasure/ benefit you receive from your actions? This is knowing yourself, your motives. This is your True Will. Every spell or process you do in accordance with your True Will will be much more powerful and likely to succeed. Doing these spells for any reason aside from your True Will dooms it to failure.

2. Fear of probing the hidden areas in your soul.

There will be Trauma in re-living some of the memories and in re-experiencing the actions that caused problems in the first place, but sometimes the only way to heal a deep penetrating wound is to cut it open and let it heal from the inside out instead of outside in. This is a dangerous stage. Many loose their nerve here and go never to return, either into insanity or away from this path altogether. This is not from the study of dark areas of magick, but from remembering past traumas, such as abuse, molestation, and other things.

This is a necessary step in order to know yourself. It cannot be avoided. During this time it is advisable to have someone to help you through the trauma associated with these memories. This person can be a concerned friend, a psychologist or a loved one or lover. My wife was my stability just as I was hers. Whomever you choose, they can commiserate with you as you try to deal with different traumas, slap you when you are too self-indulgent and self-pitying and so on. Your “guard” must to be someone you know and trust implicitly. They must also know you well enough not to let you fall into any self-deluding or self-pitying traps. Make no mistake, they will happen. People want to exculpate themselves from blame.

3. Acceptance of the dark self.

Most never get here. “Better buried than stinking again,” is the attitude many use to keep from getting here. Learn to live with the scars. Don’t glory in them, but acknowledge that they have taught you something.

Coming to terms with your own personal dark side is important. It cannot be ignored. Dealing with the trauma that happened caused by things that happened is something else entirely. Different people deal with memories and trauma in different ways, but you need to learn to recognize when a bad experience is affecting your judgment or actions so that you can break out of that cycle. Until you break out of a particular cycle of behavior, it will continues to affect you in many ways, most notably by setting up the circumstances of your own destruction. An example of this is a person who is married and lying to their spouse about having affairs. The pattern of behavior can be due to an unresolved problem of the past where the cheater learned that this behavior is “ok”. Another instance is the person who has learned not to trust anyone to be reasonable or worthy of trust as the result of mistreatment as a child.

4. Doubt of yourself, your environment your family and even the Gods. The belief that “I am not really doing this… It’s all in my imagination.”

This is NORMAL. Self-doubt is a good tool to keep from becoming another Napoleon or Hitler. It teaches us. And while self-confidence is a good thing, too much leads to hubris.

With two exceptions*, all of us have been trained by society to disbelieve anything that we cannot verify with our five primary senses . While many are willing to acknowledge that there may be other senses we possess, few are ready to come out and say “Yes, I can see into other worlds and interact with the beings there.” Society would brand them as a freak and do it’s best to destroy that person for non-conformity. Since few people are brave enough to withstand ridicule or societal destruction, we learn to ignore those things we can’t rationally explain. Remember, while this stage is normal, it is critical that the prospective Dragon magi advance beyond this stage.

Again, a percentage of people will get this far and give up. Part of coming to terms with your self is to look at your confidence problems. Many of us who are attracted to this kind of work have very vivid imaginations. It is only natural that some of us may decide we are crazy and nothing we are experiencing could have happened on this plane of reality. Please, remember, “As you believe, so will it be”. If you believe that you are imagining it all, then you will be.

5. Peaceful Acceptance, of the Dark, and the Light.

Inner Peace is a stillness of soul that many would call “steady”. Acceptance of yourself and the wisdom to over come in this area. The concept is self-explanatory.

Generally, this is the goal of all magickal systems, in which the practitioner finds him/herself and accepts him/herself as s/he is. Because of that acceptance the magician is now self-actualized, at peace and able to love everyone because s/he is no longer dependant upon others for his/her happiness. Able to discover new worlds of connection to everything within him/herself, this is the “gold” that the Alchemists were after.

6. I am no longer a mere mortal, I feel so Olympian and distant from humanity.

This is one final phase that some magickal practitioners have spoken to me about, and that is disconnectedness with normal people. While it is normal to pity most of humanity and the fact that they do not understand things as you do, and that they MUST live in a world ruled by sorrow and misery instead of in a world of joy and wonder, one must not ever think they are less than us.

When it comes to believing your better than the human race and other people on the planet this is usually where you’ve taken a wrong turn. Sure, your at peace with yourself you understand the ways of life and have accepted who you are, why not share this with the rest of the world? A lot of people try to heal others in this type of situation, to show them the ‘way’ the path to enligtenment…

Healing is a dangerous skill. In order to heal someone, you must first know how to harm him or her as well. THIS IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS. You are mucking around with someone else’s body, mind, or soul. You can do PERMANENT harm to them unless you know exactly what you are doing and why.

Megalomania and hubris are a part of this too. The scales must balance between doubt and this condition, tipping in neither direction. These emotions can grow naturally out of the previous stage. It is related to knowing that YOU did something that was good and right, that you made a difference and that YOUR spell changed the world in some way that you CAN see. With that knowledge, the immediate reaction is usually, “OH BOY! I can do anything I want to do because this stuff REALLY does work!”

This is a dangerous stage. The problem here is “I have some training, I can do anything I want and no one can stop me.” Kind of like a beginning student in Martial Arts who is getting an inflated ego. Usually the Master will have to knock them down a few notches to get them to understand that there are bigger and badder things out there.

It is believed by many people that it is impossible to go through all these steps within one life time… some of the eldest people are still dealing with life tramas and accepting the dark. The key is to work on yourself while receiving lessons from your Dragon guides. They can see through you and into your spirit so they’ll know the progress your making. The further with these steps you go the further your training as a dragon mage will take you. A lot of these steps are used for a magickian as well. It’s always important to know yourself when working with magick.

The Draconic Code of Honor

The Draconic Code of Honor

 

The Draconic Tradition has Codes of Honor that is followed by all true Dragon Mages. It is followed in magickal workings and in everyday life. There are sometimes when we can’t follow the Codes to the exact word, but to completely ignore them would be foolish. Dragons will not work with a practitioner that ignores them. But one, who follows them to the best of their ability, earns the respect of Dragons and will have no problem working with them.

1. In all that you do consider its benefit or harm to yourself, your family, and your Clan.

2. Your duty is always to yourself, your family, and your Clan.

3. Be honest with yourself and others and let them know you will not accept anything but honesty in return. You should always be above reproach or criticism in the eyes of the world.

4. You should always strive to be kind to others, or, should kindness prove impossible, strive always to be just.

5. Give your bond only after great consideration as to how it may affect your duties to yourself, your family, and your Clan. And when you do give your bond it should carry the weight of a signed blood oath.

6. Pledge friendship and your assistance only to those who are worthy and honorable. Work to strengthen those of your family, friends, and your Clan, and they will strengthen you.

7. Do not pass on anything you have not personally witnessed or verified. Never give unproven hearsay the weight of truth.

8. What you have hold. Let no one take from you, your family, or your Clan that which is rightfully and legally yours.

9. The laws of the land should be obeyed whenever possible and within reason for the protection of yourself, your family, and your Clan, for in the main they have been chosen with wisdom.

10. Never reveal the secrets entrusted to you by your family, your Clan, or your friends without permission. Possession of a wagging tongue marks you as a fool. Exceptions to this are when keeping the secret would endanger an innocent, bring unjustified dishonor to another, bring shame or dishonor to your family, your Clan, or friends, allow a criminal to go unpunished, or seriously violate the laws of the land. In this matter let common sense prevail.

11. Never neglect your family, your Clan, or your friends. Have the fierceness of a Dragon in their defense and always be certain they are provided for before starting any endeavor.

12. Offer forgiveness only to those who are truly repentant of wrongs committed against you, your family, your Clan or your friends. And when you offer forgiveness, do so with honesty, for to do so grudgingly is not forgiveness but deceit.

13. Always remember that the fury and excitement of the moment can play havoc with the truth. To keep one’s head in any situation is a virtue.

14. Have respect and honor for all Dragons and the Dragons of the Land. For they will assist you in your endeavors if you do.

15. Dignity, a gracious manner and a good humor are to be admired and cultivated. They will aid you to bring honor to your family, and your Clan.

16. Try always to be prepared for whatever the future may bring. Life with all of its joys, sorrows, and secrets is to be embraced and experienced to the fullest, for this is how one gains wisdom.

17. Respect yourself as a child of the Dragons. Have pride, but not arrogance, in yourself, your appearance, and your position in the Clan. Do your best in all things. Be gracious with self-praise, without bragging, and self-forgiveness when warranted.

18. When you gain authority, use it carefully and with wisdom. Remember that authority will grow with experience, and as a Priest/Priestess of a Clan you should exercise it with care and dignity.

19. Power does not come with authority, but can be given. Be wary of how you use any power given to you, for power over something does not always give you the authority to control it.

20. When your time in this life is done, return to the Dragons, and stand before them with pride, not arrogance. For a life lived with dignity, respect, and honor is one to be prideful of.

What is Draconic Wicca?

What is Draconic Wicca?

 

Draconic Wicca is the utilization of the powers of the dragons. There are as many dragons as there are people. They are as varied as humans are also. We work with these dragons to achieve the results that we seek. In doing so, we have to deal with the unique personalities of each type of dragon. The dragons have no real hierarchy other than age, except for the case of ‘The Dragon’.

The Dragon is the combined powers of the God and the Goddess. The Dragon is invoked or evoked during Sabbats and in times when great magick is needed (not when you can not find your keys). Invoking means to call into you the power of the dragon that you name i.e. a fire dragon. You ask that this dragon assume himself/herself into your spiritual body. To evoke means to call a dragon to you, to join you in your magickal workings.

The reason it is called Draconin “Wicca” is because of the similarities to the wiccan religion of today. This religion was originally brought to Earth by the blessed races when Atlantis was formed. The name of the religion itself cannot be pronounced in present English certainly not spelled. This religion was taken away from the Atlantians and Atlantis destroyed.The druids were the descendants of the Old Religion and passed on by mouth.

The spirits God: The god is the male half of the ‘divine being’. He has many faces and has known many names. To wiccans, he is known as the horned god, the sun god, and many more. God is not just Father, he is Mate, Consort, Lover, Friend, Brother, Hunter, Husband, Law-giver, and Partner.

Goddess: The goddess is the female half of the ‘divine being’. She also has had many faces and many names. Wiccans, druids, and the coven all respect the Maiden, Mother, and Crone aspect of the goddess show in the entire universe.

Red Dragon: The Red Dragon is effectively the goddess of the dragons and very, very few known her actual name. She represents all of the blessed races and has a counterpart for each. Dragons/Races of the

Elements: Each race has its own head keeper of the elements and/or directions. The elements are: Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Light, Darkness and Spirit These spirits are called in to help with specific elements and what the elements and directions can help with different things. Healing would be Earth for example.

Many names are used to invoke different aspects of the above spirits. The goddess might be invoked as Bast (Egyptian name) for example for healing and another time Athena (Greek) for wisdom. There is a good saying. “There are many faces of the one god.” However this doesn’t apply for the Red Dragon of other guardians of the elements. This mostly applies for the God and Goddess aspects. The sabbats are more like the old druidic sabbats, which any good reference is hard to find, than the ones that are found in Wiccan religions.
