Dragons: Spiritual protection

Once upon a time, a young brave knight upon his white horse, ventured through the darken forest in search for a greatly feared scaly beast. He made his way to a massive mountain that blocked the sun from his view. He came upon a gaping hole in the side of the mountain. Assuming that this is where he would meet his prey, he slid off his gallant steed, braving the murky cavern.

“Come out you beastly thing! Your days of terror are over!”

The dragon dove from his hollowed home and met the knight with a quick CHOMP! and ate the knight in a single bite.

And the dragon lived happily ever after terrorizing the kingdom.

Dragons are probably one of the most popular of mythological creatures. They are seen everywhere these days, from movies and books, to being seen on clothes and as statues big and small, all over the world.

They were also depicted as protectors and their images later used in war and depicted on buildings and flags.

Today, dragons may be of a different realm, but are great at keeping your home and space protected from unwanted spirits. They come big and small, serpent like and the traditional European style, one head or two, sometimes more. They also show up in many colors with beautiful scales gleaming from metallic to a flat color.

Typically, it is suggested that you do not, yourself, search for dragons. They do not like to be bothered and consider their time valuable. But you can ask for assistance in protection, by calling on the astral world, angels, guides, gods and goddesses to provide you a dragon. Anyone can request assistance, there are no special tools or rituals, but be sure to always provide a offering to the dragon that is helping you. It will be up to you to ask your dragon what type of offering that they would like, typically being shiny objects or food. They will not work for free and will only stay as long as they are needed, or until they feel that they are unappreciated.

They also have names and their own personalities, and enjoy sitting on roof tops, and curling themselves around homes and sacred spaces.

Keep in mind that if they are trying to protect an area surrounded by an overwhelming amount of negative spirits, they may need help as well. Though they find negative spirits to be yummy, they can also be out numbered if attacked. Be sure to check in on your dragon often and build a relationship with them.
