Dragon Guardians and Guides
Dragons are famous for their fierce protective nature. Though most myths portray Dragons as protectors of great treasures, they have been known to be protectors of people too.
The Dragon serves as a Powerful Guardian and Guide. Once you discover your Guardian Dragon/Dragon Guide you should encourage communication, and acknowledge your Dragon’s presence as often as possible, the same as you would with an Animal Spirit Guide or even a Guardian Angel. You will need to let you Guardian Dragon/Dragon Guide know that you are now open and willing to listen to any guidance, advice or teaching they wish to impart to you.
One way to do this is to meditate and concentrate upon your Guardian/Guide. Light candles and incense for them, and leave offerings for them upon your altar. Designing a special altar just for your Guardian/Guide is a good idea, a place where you can concentrate your energies towards the Guardian.
Many magick practitioners will surround themselves with imagery of their Guardian/Guide, immersing themselves externally in the energies of the Guardian/Guide. This will help you to draw the Guardian/Guide to you, and will assist you in achieving your connection.
As with any Guardian/Guide, finding your Guardian Dragon/Dragon Guide is not the problem. Most likely they are already around you, and in fact may have attempted contact with you in the past. This happens with many different types of Guardians and Guides, we fail to recognize the messages that they are sending us. If this is the case, contact should be easy to obtain once you have let the Dragon know you are ready & willing to connect with them.
One thing you must remember though, is when you do feel a Dragon in your house it does not mean that it’s “your “Dragon. Sometimes it can take years for a Dragon to decide to be someone’s Guardian/Guide, so just because there is one in your house or one that’s been following you for years, unless he/she tells you otherwise, don’t jump to conclusions and think that you have a Guardian Dragon or a Dragon Guide, it could be there for reason’s of it’s own… Sometimes though, a person can live their entire lives with a Guardian Dragon/Dragon Guide and never know it…
The Wicca Book of Days for Tuesday, Oct. 2
The Wiccan community has embraced the concept of guardian angels in recent years, but the belief that each individual has a spirit guide and protector from harm is ancient, universal, and inherent in the animist beliefs of paganism, according to which every natural object has a spirit guardian (and a soul). Icelandic lore tells for instance of the fylgia, or the “shadow-soul” that accompanies every person wherever they go while the Native American vision quest results in young men being granted visions of their own guardian spirit, which typically takes the form of an animal or bird.
It is said that every white feather that flutters into one’s path has fallen from the wing of an angel, and is a sign that your guardian angel is watching over you. Resolve to preserve every white feather that you come across in future , and if you can, meditate on one today.
