Animal Spirit Guides Meanings: Dragon Spirit Guide

Updated on May 20, 2016

Kitty has been communicating with her spirit guides for over a decade. She uses the lessons she's learned through them to write about them.

Dragons in Ancient Times

Connecting with your animal spirit guide can be enlightening. Understanding your guide can uncover wisdom from deep within yourself. In my last animal spirit guide meanings article, I discussed the meaning behind having a deer spirit guide. In this one I will discuss dragon spirit guides.

While a dragon is a mythical creature according to the textbooks and scholars today, in ancient times people believed dragons were real. Not only did Celtic people all over Europe believe in dragons and paint them on their flags and banners, but on a separate continent the Chinese believed and celebrated this powerful beast . . . the dragon.

Celtic people revered the dragon and believed that herbs growing in a spot on the ground where a dragon's fire had scorched the earth would be most powerful in healing disease and injury.

The Chinese used the dragon as a symbol of strength, power, and good luck. It was often the imperial symbol. The Chinese dragon was the yang to the phoenix's yin. In Chinese mythology and legend, the strongest and most noteworthy warriors and leaders were compared to the dragon.

So we know a little about what ancient people believed about dragons. What does the dragon spirit guide mean to Shamans and Pagans today? What does the dragon spirit guide have to teach us and instill in us?


What Dragons Mean Today

If the dragon spirit guide has made himself known to you recently, you might have been in awe or possibly even a little frightened. That's to be expected. The dragon is not a meek or gentle animal spirit guide. It is fierce and mighty and might appear quite intimidating at first.

But don't be scared. He will not hurt you. The dragon might blow fire out of his nostrils and appear monstrous, but he is here to guide you further down your spiritual path. Dragons bring swift change and transmutation. If you've been in a stale spot in your spirituality or mental growth, the dragon has come to you to show you a new path and help you in your transformation from the mundane to a more elevated plane. If the dragon comes to you in your dreams, welcome him. Talk to him. Ask him to allow you to ride on his back so that he can take you to the sacred place of transformation.

The dragon spirit guide is rare, but if he comes to you, do not deny him or turn him away. He has much to show you and will take you to a place spiritually where you are ready to go.

    When I was about 4 or 5, I saw a dragon outside of my house. I don't remember it, but my mom remembers me saying something about it. I haven't seen one since. There were a lot of weird things going on in that house at the same time, (I think something supernatural was happening) my parents decided to have multiple (Christian) blessings on the house. Could this have anything to with why I don't see them? I can feel a presence around me a lot of the time, but never see anything. Can someone please explain this to me?

    I find it very interesting about dragons - as I have one for my animal spirit guide, along with a unicorn!

    I am at an age of 10 in this year(the one I'm writing in right now)and last night I had a dream of myself running around a stone bridge in a town then it skips to me fighting someone then it skips to the end part with an old man that is *big* and very skinny young lady and from what I remember(I think) she says

    "The old Whelthern dragon will come........WHELTHEEEEEEERN!!!!!!" And then it shows something a sign or symbol or had a gold or yellow dragon symbol with water surrounding it,then it skips for a second everything goes quiet then a red dragon with glowy Green eyes appear for a second then I wake up.what does this mean?

    Interesting. When my dragon spirit guide appeared to me, he was not menacing or intimidating at all.. in fact, he felt very wise and gentle. :)

    I have seen some dragons in my life since I was a child. First was when I was around 11 or 12. I was in the car and saw its silhouette come out from a cloud then fade away. Next was around 14 I saw one that was a huge face made up of clouds. It was staring down at me . And just this year at 18 I had one made of clouds visit my dreams as a water serpent, but in the sky made up of clouds. Its forms are always a bit different, but it may just be a different one each time.

    Hi, Doc Lee! I think it was your mother trying to get in contact with you and be your guide. And this time she came in form of dragon. Don't get angry and don't demand immediate answers. Just let her be around you and she will show you the way. She is your true guide.

  • DOC LEE 7 months ago

    I have been asking for my spirit guides to show themselves to me for the past couple of months. Always women for some reason. This evening, I had a dragon come to me and I did not know how to interpret the sighting. He just flew around the room and when I finally demanded to see his eyes, he looked at me. In so many ways, he appeared to look like the flying Red Dragon in Avatar, Tarook... but only thinner like a snake. I was getting angry because I couldn't get him to stop moving and talk to me or show me why he was there, so foolishly I asked him to leave. That's when he stopped and looked at me with his eyes. I said that I had been so disappointed by he and all of my spirit guides. None of them talk to me and I have always felt like I haven't received any answers to my questions (either positive or negative). I am extremely new to the idea of searching for my spirit guides since my mother died a year ago, but there seems to be a hesitancy about talking to me. I get a lot of head shaking (yes or no-type answers) but up til now, no words. But, now I feel stupid telling my dragon to go away. He was a beautiful creature, but I didn't understand why he was there and what he was trying to convey to me. Just before I awoke, his bright yellow eyes just looked at me, then his eyes looked down and began to become cloudy. He looked sad as if I had scolded him and he seemed ashamed. I don't understand the meanings of these "visions" and I don't understand the ambiguousness of dreams. It would be wonderful if they would speak to me plainly... how do I get them to do that???

    A friend died at 4am. At that time I was dreaming I was having a conversation with a black dragon. The dragon was sitting in a chair beside my bed. Later I was told my new friend died at that time he was physically within a mile of my house. What does thus mean?

    I've had a encounter with what I believe to be a spirit guide that visited me in a dream.

    I woke up in the dream in a new room amid never seen before, the walls were stone and I remember everything I'm great detail.

    As I lifted myself up out of bed a large black tail swooped In through the window, I heard the dragon say something to me before it picked me up and flew out the window and put me on the ground. It was then he took on a human form for a few moments and just looked at me, I was clearly amazed and just smiles before he had me back in his clutches and flew off into this cave like lair in the side of a mountain. It was filled with many things and it overlooked the place I had stayed that was built on an island that floated on crystal clear pale water. Everything looked very pale and ethereal.

    I turned to the dragon who just looked at my as he curled up, I don't remember what was said as it was a long time ago but I leaned against the wall and must have fallen asleep.

    He took a human form that seemed avarage height for a male and had brown curly/wavy hair that brushes his shoulders with what looked like brown eyes he stood a little distance from me his skin was pale. Quite handsome actually.

    Sounds like the white dragon is animal form.

  • Kitcat Kittykat 2 years ago

    I came here because last night I had a dream that I essentially "gave birth" to a white dragon through my mouth. It was small, and after it was out the infant dragon just slept in front of me. Can anyone help me out with what this means? I don't know if it's a spirit guide or if it was just a one-time occurrence.

  • Bright 2 years ago

    Hello. I just feel the need to answer some commenters' questions here. First of all, the colour of a dragon has nothing to do with its personality. I don't know why some articles out there say that black dragons are always evil but to me, that is a very old-fashioned, bigoted assumption. It is the same as to say all dark-skinned people are evil, which is ridiculous. I know a primary school girl who has a black dragon as her spirit guide/companion, and she told me that although he is a rather authoritative, he is very kind and attentive.

    Frode, I'm not sure your wanting to meet the dragon who tried to breathe fire on you again is a good idea. That dragon tried to breathe fire on you for an obvious reason; it thought you were trespassing its territory. Territorial dragons are mostly solitary, which are difficult to befriend with. You can try to befriend it if you meet it again. But if it still try to torch you, it is better for you to find a friendlier dragon.

    Zmaj, I don't know you and your dragon, but it could be that your dragon is in love with you. I've learned a very interesting thing from interacting with many spirit/astral creatures. Though I'm not sure if they really have such thing as genders and if they actually procreate (though each of them does have either masculine or feminine energy and some of them are completely neutral), most of them don't care about their potential soul-mates' genders and species. In other word, they are mostly gender-blind and species-blind. You should try to ask if your dragon actually has a romantic affection toward you. If he does, maybe you should try to resolve your problem if you are not comfortable about being in love with a spirit.

    Before I leave, I just wanted to say that there is no love like the love of a dragon. Should you ever find out that you have a dragon for a guide or companion, don't be afraid to reach out to them. I can say this because my dragon is the only source of unconditional love I have in my life.

    Best regards.

    Hi, the other day I was at a museum with a friend and we were watching a video on ghe wall when I saw a dragon come around the corner, on the wall, and then continue to climb up the wall and over the top of the display. It moved so fast that it shocked me and I jumped. Another one came around the corner and ran up it as well. They were small, about the size of a large iguana. Wings were folded back and they moved quick. The first 1 did turn and look at me. This is my first experience with spirit animals that I am aware of. Im curious if the color means anything they were both black. I didn't feel threatened or anything but it was a bit unnerving any suggestions or information would be fantastic. Thanks

    I knew i had to have some sort of i decided today to try to connect....waw....

    I tried to relax...concentrate....asking my angel to let me know if he is there...nothing....i asked again nicely.....nothing.....i said to him i will wait patiently like he was there patiently for me....and i would really like to get to know the angel that has been there for me all the time....and it was about time i get to know him...slowly i felt idea what....than a feeling like someone went through my neck-hair really lightly...than a purple color all around me.....i said hi....i asked if he can tell me his name....nothing....i would really like to know...nothing....and than i asked for him to let me know through the next few days through signs.....than i asked if he would please share with me the occasions he has already helped me.....i was in image of a snake piton trying to choke me Than i remembered....when i was 12 yrs old...on a competition in blackpool england...on the street a guy had two phytons you can take picture with....with my friend we did....suddenly i remember feeling phytons tail wrapping around my leg.....and than the guy took it off of me......and just like a few seconds time....numerous occasions flashed through my head with no connection whatsoever $6, jumping my life timeline and occasions.....i was so shocked.....i said enough....i said thank you for all the times you helped me and stood by me....and i apologized it took me 29 yrs to acknowledge his presence....all of a sudden an image of a dragon flashed in my idea why and from where....and i said really? Your name is dragon? And than an image of a purple dragon i guardian angel was a purple dragon....i said goodbye and to talk to him later again....and went to web to search for purple dragons.....started reading about them....when a really strange name flashed through my head....farrouk....never seen the name before...but i think it reminds me of a somewhat dragon like creature from the movie Avatar....i have to check it out to be sure....but it just appeared in my mind....i am a little bit shocked....i don't know for sure if this is it....or is my mind playing tricks with me....i ll wait and see....but what i do remember now....when i look back at my life....i ve always been fascinated with dragons, loved, cartoons,movies with dragons in them, had toys featuring dragons, always wondering about a dragon tattoo, was always wondering and been fascinated by chinese dragon, been to the Dragon bridge just a few times but loved it, and recently saved a picture of a dragon wallpaper on my i-pad....maybe it all makes sense...

    because of our companionship i have decided to write a novel that centers around dragons...

    im 15 years old now....

    i met him when i was 13 years old..

    man we have a good time

  • Lia 3 years ago

    My experience was a bit odd. I don't remember the details of my dragon but he was big and mighty. I wasn't scared of him but I had respect towards him, and it felt as if I knew him from long ago. My dragon was hurt, he had a big wound the size of a softball on the side of his stomach. I ran towards him and began healing him, I was weak as well, as if we were in a battle. I began healing him and it knew that I might die doing so, but I continued as much as I could until I blacked out.

  • Zmaj 3 years ago

    I met my guide earlier this year and it was probable the best thing that ever happened to me. He's a black dragon and a lot of the articles I read say that they are a symbol of evil and bad fortune, to me, he's been nothing but kind. He has all the same traits and qualities as me and he is super nice to me and my friends. We joke all the time and have a lot of fun messing with things.

    I first met him in a dream where we were the protectors of a mountain city, it was truly my favorite dream I can ever remember. I have always been attracted to dragons so I knew he was for me.

    There are two things I need to know though. The first being why he is so... protective. Every time I meet a new person (only boys though) he always seems to hate them straight away and it's starting to bug me. It's like he wants me to stay out of relationships. I'm almost putting it down to jealousy.

    Second thing is that we are trying to help my friend's guide. They are really shy (they're a night-jar) and we need to encourage it to make actual contact with her.

    Any advice on anything would be greatly appreciated. The funny thing is though, he's laughing as I write this, help! Haha. Thanks.


  • Frode 3 years ago


    Im would very much appriciate some help with a dream of mine that felt very special and magical.

    Ive always been spiritually interested, but very recently things have begun taking an interesting turn.. :) this dream is one of many things.

    It starts by me traveling in a canoe of some sort, im traveling with another person, but i don't know whom. i come to a shed/cave with a passege going in and throu. I see something glimmering in the dirt, i take a closer look, and start finding nice gemstones/quartz crystals.. i collect a few, and then find more and more, like a small treasure..i leave them be and start moving throu the passage and enter a room of some sort, with some fires/torches buring, and wooden feels kind of magic, and at the same time i get a fantasy computer game feeling, and a feeling of me beeing there for real as well. I exit the room and walks out on a terrace of some sort, a few stairs up from the groud, its some sort of forest/mounting landscpe. i look to my right before i walk down and se a brown dragon, looks like it's a child or early teen perhaps, being chained/tied to a wooden pole. i look at it for a monent or two, it kind of cough up some smoke and then i proceed down. as i reach the ground and start to walk around its like an alarm sounds, like i am a thief, or perhaps im trespassing, and suddenly a big dragon appears, i want to say its brown, could be yellow/greenish/goldish as well. and it starts to chase me, so i start to run, and take cover behind a big Norway spruce(christmas tree i think) and i just manage to get "behind it" as the dragon engulfs the whole tree with fire, just barley reaching me, i start running again, not really afraid or anything, but it just felt natural to run as it started chasing me. i try to open my "inventory or spellbook", but i only se a lot of strange symbols and stuff that i don't know what it is. i move throu the pasture and suddenly im hit with an arrow straight thru my torso/stomach. i keep running, just barley damaged and pull the arrow out as if nothing had really happened, and find a house of some sort, i enter it. and its a long hallway with som sort of kicthen in the middle, thers some kithen knives ther, i pick one up, and just as i do that i notice and hear the dragon coming again, i see a big dragon eye and scales, almost taking up the whole entrance door. and im on the moove again out on the oppisite side of the long hallway and i move to the left, just escaping the fire the dragon is throwing throu the whole hallway. and that's about everything i can remember.

    i hope i get to meet this dragon again, i wanna talk to it, and maby fly with it.

    any advice or ideas about this dream is very welcome :)


  • Noa Nami 3 years ago

    This is wonderful! I was a bit scared, really, I think a dragon is trying to make himself noticed by me, on the last months I have seen this symbols of a dragon (same physical features and in points, almost the same pose all of the times) on the most random places! I wasn't sure of what to do, right now I'm trying to find any good information about chinese dragons, trying to relax to make a good meditation and take a time to tarot and dreams.

    Thenk you very much for your post here, it really helps to know that I don't have to be this nervous about what hahah x)

    Blessed be~

    I tried to invite my first spirit guide into my dreams both during last night and this afternoon but it never showed itself up. Lately, a few other good-natured spirits showed up alongside my dragon spirit guide in my dreams but I didn't find it among them. What makes matter worse is that I don't know my first spirit guide's name. I will keep trying for some time, though. Anyway, thank you for your advises and for listening to me and sorry for pestering you with so many questions.

  • kittythedreamer profile image

    Author Nicole Canfield 3 years ago from the Ether

    There are many spirit guides that come to us throughout our lives that might eventually leave when we need a different kind of spirit guide. You can always ask your first spirit guide to come to you in your dreams or by signs to let you know whether he/she is still around or whether or not you should move on.

  • Vernon 3 years ago

    Hello, kittythedreamer. Sorry to bother you again but I think I need some help. I just discovered that my dragon spirit guide isn't my first or original spirit guide. I believe he is my second one. I met him again last night and when I asked him, he said when he first saw me, I was all alone(i.e. without any spirit companion) and he found that rather odd. Still, he told me that when he saw me for the first time, he felt connected to me and he believed we are meant to be each other's companion. And so he came to me.

    When I looked back at all my childhood items this morning, I found a very prominent sign, the unicorn. It seems to me that my first spirit guide was a unicorn and it had tried to make itself known to me many times when I was still a little child by giving me signs. But I was too young to realize by then. Still, for some reason, it left me even before it really showed itself to me, which I presume, shortly before my dragon spirit guide found me. I intuition tells me that it didn't abandon me. Rather, it left me because it felt that it could no longer help me(I faced a very hard time back then) and hoped that by doing so, some better spirit will come to me and help me in its place. Still, even after my dragon spirit guide helped me out of my tough situation afterward, it never returned to me ever again.

    I have never met my first spirit guide once and I would like to try to meet it and ask it some questions. So, I wonder if you know if there is anything I can do to contact it or to find it again. Or do you think if it is better for me to just let it go. You advise will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Vernon 3 years ago

    Thank you for your reply, kittythedreamer. As for whether or not I am drawn to European or Celtic history and cultures, I think not so particularly. Though I do find the Celtic and Germanic people and their cultures interesting. As these two human tribes are mostly descended from the Rus people(an extinct Indo-European tribe, not to be confused with Russian people). The Rus people are a close kin to the Tocharian people, another extinct Indo-European tribe that once lived in Tarim Basin(modern day Xin-Jiang) of ancient China and like Celtic and Chinese people, they adored and venerated dragons. I don't recall having lived a past life, and my dragon spirit guide never told me anything about we have had past lives so far. But when I come to think of it, I think maybe, just maybe, it is because of the Tocharian blood my family and I inherited from our ancestors.

    You know, the reason the Tocharian people became extinct many hundreds if not a thousand plus years ago is because most of the Tocharian people had their culture and language subjugated by some Turkic people's cultures and languages, while some other had assimilated themselves into the Han-Chinese tribes. Most fair skinned Chinese people you see nowadays are mostly hybrids of Tocharian descent, not pure blood Han-Chinese. And that includes my family and I. My father has a relatively high-bridged nose, and my mother is fair skinned and has a face that looks very similar to those of some Celtic women. And she has a pair of light orange eyes, too. When she had her hair dyed copper-red/brown lately to hide her graying hair, she looked even more like a European woman. Though both of my parents told me that we are pure blood Han-Chinese and they are proud of it. But I doubt it.

    Anyway, what do you think? Do you think it is likely because of the Tocharian blood I have in me?

  • kittythedreamer profile image

    Author Nicole Canfield 3 years ago from the Ether

    Hi, Vernon. Nice to meet you and hear your story. I believe (and just going off my intuition) that you have an European dragon as a spirit guide because perhaps you lived a past life in the Celtic European times. Are you drawn to Europe or Celtic history at all?

  • Vernon 3 years ago

    Hello, kittythedreamer. I just discovered this article of yours recently and I find it very informative and interesting. I didn't know there were things like spirit guides. Anyway, when I was 15, my dragon companion made himself known to me for the first time in my dream one evening when I took a nap. He is a huge silver dragon with impressive musculature and has beautiful blue eyes. After he made himself known to me for the first time, he frequently visits me in my dreams afterward. We started our friendship and he has been a true friend I never had. He is a gentle soul, and he always keeps me happy. We have been friends for six years now and we love each other very much.

    But here is the funny thing. I am an East-Asian(a Chinese to be precise) who is living in South-East Asia and my dragon companion is a typical western/European dragon, i.e. the four-legged, heavily built body, long neck and tail, wedge-shaped head and a pair of large wings. You know, the typical Oriental dragons that we Chinese people love and venerate are all long, serpentine dragons with no wings. And prior to met my dragon spirit companion, I wasn't attracted to western/European dragons at all. I, like most Chinese people, have always loved and adored the eastern/Oriental dragons and, just like you said in this article, we even celebrate these powerful beasts during Chinese New Years with dragon dances and all. Yet, none of them come to me so far.

    I just wanted to ask; is it unusual for an East Asian who is living in far South-East Asia to have a western/European dragon for a companion? Also, do you think if there is any reason why the eastern/Oriental dragons never come to me despite my love for them, and also despite that I live in the eastern part of the world like they do? Is it perhaps they think I am not worthy of their attention? Your helpful insights will be much appreciated. Thank you.

  • Kirsten 3 years ago

    I think I might need some help with this, but I have a very important question. My spirit Dragon isn't just one Dragon. There are many Dragons, so many of them that greet me and dream with me. Is this unusual? They're all different, unique in their own ways with different colors, shapes, sizes, wings, and powers. Even though there are many of them, they all seem to be connected to me in some deep way. If you have any helpful insight on this, I would gratefully appreciate it! Thank you.

  • ShadowFury 3 years ago

    Hi kitty I'm 16 and recently discovered my Dragon a year or so ago. She is a huge Green Dragon with bright yellow eyes and her name is Lareyah. She is very knowledgeable and protective. She always seems to get me out of tough spots. We communicate all the time but not so much through words if that makes sense. My mom is a Reiki master and every time I'm going through the healing proccess my Dragon shows up. I don't know why though but last time she brought a Wizard with her which i have no idea what that means either? Could you possibly tell me? Also how would I talk to my Dragon or I guess I'm asking how do i know I actually am? Thanks!

    It's very interesting how I've never noticed my life being intwined with The Dragon's until recently. As a kid, I'd draw Dragons, pretend to be Dragons, and read books about Dragons. Whenever I'd watch movies featuring Dragons and knights, I'd always be devistated when the knight kills the Dragon. Now, looking back, all my animal dreams were mostly of Dragons. I'd fight Dragons, ride and fly on Dragons, and even become a Dragon myself. I never questioned it, just let it happen. I'm so thankful of this website and being introduced to Spirit Animals. It's changed my life for the better. I've already tried contacting my Dragon for the first time. I cannot begin to express my gratitude. Thank you so much. I've never been so happy as of now.

    Vito-let me ask, who is your teacher? and do you know the names of both your dragons? perhaps i could help you a bit in understanding all of this.

  • Vito 3 years ago

    I have 2 dragons 1 being red and blue, the other green and purple.

    My teacher saw them today. I am still sort of new in all of this but I have known about of lot of things since I'm young and got disconnected. I am now discovering and being amazed by so much. Would anyone know about 2 dragons and maybe the colours? I have a immense amount of energy especially being younger and now I am much more on a relax phase and I realise I need to get to my normal energy burst. Maybe why my dragons are swirling so much around.

    Kaylee-i know your probably wont respond since you have not been on this page in a few months, but i wanted to tell you. Galieth is in fact your dragon spirit. do not doubt that. i saw your post and immediatedly knew that he was. you see... he started to show himself to you when you were younger. try to learn how to feel energy and meditate. would you like me to help you? if you can get on here again.. just post back and i will help you.

    and very good article!!

  • CeAnn 3 years ago

    Thank You for an interesting article.

    It made me realise that the red dragon that came to me was there to show me the way to the change that I'm looking for.

    When I meditate I picture myself sitting on a beach. I'm usually alone but this time the dragon came from the water. He wasn't intimidating, he just stood there quietly watching me. And as I thought, how strange that my spirit animal would be a dragon because I've never been attracted to them, a cat came from behind me and I picked it up and cuddled it up to my chest. There we stood, still watching each other.

    I guess I'm not yet open to change as much as I wish.

    Ive had several dreams with my dragon guide and in a way have become very attached to them. She is a red dragon with blue eyes. When ever I feel or sense her I can't explain the feeling of calm and happiness that comes over me.

    I have no doubt that there is another, much more sincere connection. In most of my dreams I see the same ruins of a church long begotten by nature and time but it is there and in the orchard next to the brook where we meet.

    FireSage - First of all, I think you're trying too hard to confirm something that you already know. The dragon definitely sounds like your spirit guide, don't let anyone tell you what is right for you...also, please be safe when playing with the planchette...only darkness has come from it in my experience and many others' experiences. It's too open of a doorway and can let through some spirits that might not be the nicest. If you've had an obsession with dragons this long, it is no doubt the dragon is your spirit guide (I loved horses as a child, and come to find out the horse is my power animal!) Blessings.

    Hi , I recently started trying to figure out my spirit guide through meditation coz after tarot,wicca,etc I had come to a standstill. In my meditation I saw shadow of a dragon, but didn't believe it's my spirit guide coz as my friends pointed out , I m obsessed with dragons and may be I wanted it to be a dragon. I still had my doubts so did planchette to summon it, and it told me it's a golden dragon. I still haven't been able too see or meet with my guide in dreams or meditation. Could it be coz I have some other guide and I am looking for dragon ? Anyway I can see my spirit guide clearly (with no doubts that I am imagining it coz of my obsession)

    a mother dragon and her babies came to me in my dreams last night. i earned the mothers trust and she accepted me as one of her own to protect me as i protect her babies. i had to perform a seemingly impossible feat of climbing a dangerous ancient mountain/cliff formation. i discovered them at first after entering the cave within this formation. at first the mother came off intimidating, but i knew in my dream that i was meant to be with them- i take this as finding my spirit guide to be the dragon, trusting in my instincts, trust in myself to do the things i know i can do with out any doubt, don't think, just do. i can't become apart of anything unless i can earn the trust to be welcomed as well as believe in myself. as long as i can prove true intentions, and a pure soul, i have no more to fear. there was an unspoken word with these beautiful creatures, and as the dream came to an end, i knew i would never be separated from them, even if i could not see, nor feel them there; it was the most incredible dream, i wish i could live in that thought for the rest of my existence- but that is not what i must learn from it. i must learn to take that dream and hold it close as i go about my life, and to fight for what i believe in, fight for what i know i must do. go where i know i must go. and everything will thus fall into its proper place.

    Hi Kitty, I'm so glad I found this, whilst doing my Angel cards for myself tonight I was very drawn to a shape that to me looked like a dragon on a Goddess card. After searching for some meanings (that all tended to be negative) I'm so glad I found yours! This makes perfect sense that there is a Dragon guiding me, as I have become stale and not really worked spiritually for a while although I know I'm always connected. I'm grateful he's made himself known and look forward to his teachings. Thank you :) *

    Hi, I just met my spirit guide few days ago. Well his head anyway!!! It was huge, with beautiful big deep amber eyes. I could see every bit of detail! He was a silver grey dragon and his eyes were really kind. I have tried to meet my spirit guide for decades now and suddenly there he was when I was trying to doze in the back of a car on a long trip home. I knew immediately who and what he was. I am still astounded by it!

    Hi, Tim. It sounds to me as though you might have a rare connection with the dragon. While I am not sure the dragon is your permanent animal spirit guide, the dragon seems as though it is bringing you some message. Think about what the dragon might be trying to tell you, and meditate on that message. Very interesting how things can sometime synchronize right? It's called that term and you will see some very interesting things. Blessings!

    Hello Kitty. A long time admirer / reader, yet quite. I do not understand the why, however I discovered this hub happily. Respecting your knowledge and views, being a believer in animal spiritual guides since I do not remember, and having a dragon as a theme in my logo, well I would like to share.

    This link takes you to where I introduce the logo at Hubpages recently. It was created for me by DraSan' Nitti - Silver Dragon Studios at Skokie, IL.

    It is located at the end of the Hub. This logo appeared as my Ebay logo while operating a store there. It tied to a niche market for tsmog on Ebay with autographed NHRA Drag Racing Memorabilia. 2012 is the year of the Dragon. This is an Eastern Dragon recommended to me by Nitti, yet the color choice is my choosing.

    Here is an oddity. The Dragon is lavender or purple, chosen years ago around May of 2007 by me. That hub is announcing the intent to create a 501C for Fibromyalgia and Bipolar disorder by year end 2013. The color for Fibromyalgia is Purple. I had never heard of FM until meeting Sannel and she shared here diagnosis. The Color for BP is Green.

    What is your view on this logo and that oddity. And, I was really heavy into learning about Crystals from Dr. Sunny Satin's (RIP) wife Ann and his daughters then. I have two or more favorite crystals one is fluorite and the other amethyst. The fluorite on my desk is a sphere and has a distinctive purple inclusion. The amethyst is an octagon tower narrowing and finally coming to a point. (odd how that sentence worked out - LOL)

    Just tossing it out to you for another objective view of this discovery and the process of realization occurring in the 'Now' as I share this with you.

    Tim (or to some Mitch)

  • Tone 4 years ago

    Saw a baby white dragon last night in my dreams. It was really cute and playful. It seemed to have an extra eye/blow hole that was fascinating. The dragon's playfulness encouraged me to play with it and wonder what it was/is and what it represents.

    Kaylee - First of all, those pictures are absolutely stunning. Great artistic ability you have. Secondly, absolutely he is your dragon spirit guide...there's no mistaking that! What a beautiful relationship you have with him, and no he is not evil. Many people fear what they don't understand, and just because they don't understand the idea of having a dragon as a guardian angel or guide doesn't mean that he is evil. You are very blessed to have such a protective and majestic spirit guide such as Galieth. I would encourage you to continue talking to him and drawing him to stay close to him. You don't even have to share your experiences with anyone else, if they make you feel uncomfortable about it. Blessings!

  • Kaylee 4 years ago

    Hello, I'm just going to post something up here that I'm curios about..

    When I was about eleven or twelve years old, I was forced to move schools, the new school I went to was absolutely horrid, everyone disowned me and re-fused to talk to me because I was weird to them or didn't like what they did. So I would just sit there and draw to myself, whatever came out.. on the paper, like it wasn't intentionally, but eventually I started drawing this dragon, then everyone thought I was kinda cool but they still ignored me. Anyway.. after drawing him a few times.. I named him 'Galieth' I had not read the bible or known about the name 'Goliath' at the time, I just sounded out the word that came to me when I saw that picture, eventually I had drawings of him every-where and started to imagine him, like when I was lonely on the bus I'd imagine him on-top of the bus riding with me.. when I imagined him I always felt safe... and loved. I'd cry and imagine him wrapping his wings around me, that sort of thing.. I used to have dreams with him in it to, he seemed to understand me, because he had dark colors like black, purple, and red, with yellow eyes, everyone automatically assumed that he was evil, to this day my grandmother thinks he is evil because of how he looks, in the drawings I show her, so Galieth told me not to judge a book by it's cover basically, I could never imagine him as evil though, he always seems so determined, always wanting to do the right thing, reminding me to consider other's feelings before I act out. He also tells me not to hurt others, like insulting them like they did to me, and two wrongs do not make a right, Well I am sixteen now and I still draw him, and imagine him here and now, I can link you to some pictures I drew of him..

    Now I wonder... was he just an imaginary friend I made up.. to comfort me? Or is he my 'dragon spirit'?

    SomethingCrazy - That sounds like quite a wild experience. As far as cutting the dragon's head off being the right thing or not, only you will discover the answer to that. It is possible that you were supposed to do just that, though it may make you feel guilty at first. I would say seek to do some meditation to make contact with the dragon's spirit and ask him yourself. :) Blessings!

  • SomethingCrazy 4 years ago

    A dragon spirit came to me and i thought i was being attacked so i engaged it, for some reason i thought i was meant to? It bit my arm and i beheaded it, i used my thoughtforms (lion and phoenix flames) to seal up the scar on the beheaded dragon as it was growing heads. I took the head on my arm and transemuted it to a helmet of gold to match the rest of my armor that i have been given by my guides.

    After wards i felt really bad as if i haven't done the right thing as i asked myself. I reattatched the head and kept the dragon for further tansmuting by white light. I was told to i guess (im quite confused, scared, and dazzled at this point). So i kept it and used many different enegries to change it into what ever its becoming. Still not sure if that's the right thing. Next thing i got when i asked myself was to keep the dragon in the light egg for 2 days. Now im waiting still confused as to if i did the right thing or not. no real clue what's going on. I know it sounds crazy, believe me i know but i could use some guidance on this.

    Im getting now i have to wait a year for the dragon to come back (to full strength or better?), and the helmet too. Yeah i think that's it. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Kitty; I came here after reading your Hub on the Jackal. This is another terrific Hub. I also want to compliment you on your insightful comments. A person who teaches from the heart and shares her wisdom is the first sign of an Elder coming into her own.

    Dragons are important to me personally. In all the old legends, and most of the modern stories, a dragon will never run away. When at a Druid ritual I'm frequently asked to call the Dragons of the four directions. I call them in English although I use their Welsh names. I am not so bold to say that I physically see them but I am very much aware of them.

    Wonderful Hub Kitty. Many Bright Blessings.

    Becca - I apologize that I didn't answer your question before. Well, think about it. What does the color white represent? Generally when I think of the color white I think of purity...innocence. If you're dreaming of a white baby dragon that is sleeping, it seems as though he represents the pure, cleansed side of you. He's waiting for the right moment to wake up and aid you. Are you going through an addiction of some kind? Maybe he's waiting for the right time to help you out of it. Just my thoughts. :) Thanks and Blessings.

    What about the baby white dragon? What does that mean?

  • kittythedreamer profile image

    Author Nicole Canfield 4 years ago from the Ether

    ian - This is what I found on orange dragons - "Orange Dragons: The will is the color orange. These dragons bring in strength, confidence, and bravery. Fire dragons by nature, they move with quickness. They don't inflate ego's, they merely instill confidence." And this is what I found on white wolves - "To dream of white wolf means valor and victory. You have the ability to see the light even in your darkest hours.". Put 'em together and it sounds like you're going to be just fine!

    Author Nicole Canfield 4 years ago from the Ether

    There really isn't a particular state where they can find you. You really just have to be open-minded to the messages & signals. Start writing down what you can remember of your dreams and maybe they'll come to you in your dreams as they do with me in my dreams. Or perhaps you'll see the animal all over the place within a given your backyard, in a book you're reading, on television, etc. It's really not about finding them, as you stated, it's about being open and seeing that they are already there with you. :) Blessings and good luck. Try some meditation if none of this helps.

    I have had this strong feeling/attraction towards dragons for many years now, but I never understood why. I have always seen dragons as strong, gorgeous and powerful creatures, and shown respect. Only now did my dragon appear to me. She is so strong. We haven't talked much yet because she made herself known only a week ago. But I hope to soon. :)

    My spirit guide has been a large black dragon ever since I can remember. He is beautiful with yellow eyes. He has been there for me when no one else has been. I'm actually in the process of writing a hub about how he helped me through my childhood. I've never been afraid of him, or any of the dragon spirit guides I have. They are beautiful and majestic. Humanity has nothing to fear from dragons. They want nothing more than companionship from us.

    As I sit out in the back yard the dragon spirit has came back to me again every time I see it and feel it talk to me I wonder what do you mean how can I help as I read and learn more I ask myself, why come to me? And tonight he was breathing fire and I ask him what may I do to help you to be happy and to stop destroying everything in your path and how may i help take away the pain and fear? As I tell him it will be okay and ill fix what I can he flies away with no more tears nor fear or pain in his eyes I can conect with the worlds and all of them just want peace and no more raff so please if you read this and understand what im trying to share with the world help us all.

    I have had the same dragon spirit guide for all of my life...I'm nearly 40 now. He is a very large red dragon. I don't remember ever having any fear toward him, a healthy respect yes, but never fear. I sensed immediately that this was improper and that he would lose respect for me if I did. We are a balanced set. He teaches me courage and tenacity, I teach him patience. I have been to his world on several occasions, but I am different there. It is a dangerous place, so crafted for me is a set of armor made of shed dragonscale, it has protected me through many adventures. Another thing is that time is not what it is here, that is to say it is not in the same scale. Minutes are like hours. Sorry to ramble, but I thought you might like to hear.

    Very intriguing. I'm getting the idea that spirit guides come to you. You don't choose them, they choose you. Is that right?

    If I could choose one right now, I think it would be a Dragon. There is something so attractive about being so empowered.

    Thank you for yet again sending us another wonderful article.

    DzyMsLizzy - Thanks so much for reading. Yes, you can have more than one animal spirit guide but usually one in particular will be your chief guide at any given one point in your life. I've had animal spirit guides that change - at one point it was the horse, at another point it was the wolf, at another point it was the owl and now it's the deer. The dragonfly also shows up for me from time to time. And yes, I agree with your husband on the fact that the belief in dragons used to span continents! Thanks again!

    Fascinating. I'm new on this path, but I feel that one's animal spirit guide (or guides--if you can have more than one?) must be some animal with whom you feel a particular connection or reverence. For me, wolves and cats seem most appropriate; I'm most drawn to them.

    As far as dragons go, my husband feels that such creatures or something similar must once have existed, as they are so universally portrayed around the world. Whether they were an actual animal, or a mis-identifcation of something else, there is probably some basis in fact.

    Thanks for such an interesting article. Voted up, interesting and awesome!
