The Element of Water: Naelyan (Dragon of Seas, Springs, Lakes, Ponds)

The Element of Water


(Dragon of Seas, Springs, Lakes, Ponds and Rivers)


The element of Water governs the western quarters of the circle. Its dragon ruler is Naelyan  (nail’-yon), who oversees the dragons of the seas, springs, lakes, ponds and rivers. Its color is pure blue; it is cold and moist. Positive association  of Water are: sunset, autumn, the water chalice, any form of helpful water, compassion, peacefulness, forgiveness, love, intuition, calmness, peace of mind.  Negative associations are: floods, rainstorms, whirlpools, any kind of harmful water, laziness, indifference, instability, lack of emotional control,  insecurity.

The subspecies of the element of Water are those of the seas and various waters. It is not unusual to find  this element working in conjunction with dragons of wind, storm, and weather, mountains and forest, or those of destruction.

In Cambodia, land of nagas and dragons, each reservoir has its temples where its divinity is  worshipped in dragon form. In Chinese legend, the first emperor to take on a dragon form, was Fu Hsi; this dragon-king put the Primordial Waters into order  by digging dikes, canals and irrigation ditches: he also tamed the Yellow River, making it safe for humans to live beside it.

Daily Motivator for Oct. 29th – Your great potential

Your great potential

To build something beautiful and wonderful takes time and effort. Make good  use of every moment you have.

You can go a long, long way. To do so, you must be going on that way every  chance you get.

What you can accomplish is truly amazing. So work on it with persistence and  commitment, and bring all that great value to life.

The minutes and hours of this day will quickly pass no matter what you do  with them. Choose to do the highest and best with each of them, and to fulfill  your great potential.

Rather than dwelling on the excuses, focus intently on the possibilities.  Find great joy in the fact that you can make a difference, and make that  difference again and again.

You can do great things. Feel that potential, then get busy and fulfill it.
