I have a belief that all my life I've lived a "Witchy" life style (not Wiccan), I just never realized it until a book was set in front of me to tell me "Hey, you actually do have a religion." At least, that's the way it felt. I've read and read and read... but I miss something in these books (most are Wiccan based because at the time that was all I knew to research). Yes, care for the Earth Mother, for without here, we would not be here. Yes, magick is energy that must be worked with and manipulated carefully. Yes, the elements were my friends, and I should respect them. But none of this explained the dragon.
As a child, I can remember carrying around a basket with a blanket to keep this tiny creature safe and warm. No one else could see him. Truly, I could not see him on the physical plane (and I still do not see him. I picture him in my mind's eye and feel him as he joins me. He loves it when I drive the car; running happily next to it.), yet I knew he was there. Always in the background. He would randomly pop up in my life as if checking up on me. Unlike all other dragons that I have read about, he did not grow slowly over thousands of years. No, he grew with me, aging as I do. His presence is safe, comforting, and wonderful. He is my Guardian; my guardian dragon if you will.
I have read up on dragons (Dragon Magick), but these books do not encompass my friend here. I have found sites that mention dragons, yet they seem to be encompassed in Wiccan traditions with dragon lore plugged in at random times. I have found only one site (on Eastern Dragons none the less) that even mentions him as he is.
My delima is, as a growing woman in society (Pagan and non-pagan), I must decide if he is merely a lingering childhood memory which I wish to bring into the world because of some weird psycological problem, if he is my totem animal, or if he is a true to Earth Mother Dragon and that the rest of the world is full with bull on their beliefs on dragons.
I love him dearly, so the first option is the last option I will go for. I do believe he is real, yet I cannot figure out why he is here.
Anyways! That's my Guardian for ya. If anyone has any tips, I guess give me a message.
