I tend to talk a lot about the deities I work with, which gives a false view of my real path. On a daily basis I work with Anpu, as he is my patron. He helps me with figuring out my path and accepting a deeper part of myself that I have long forgotten. Though working with him is only a tiny chip of what I really do in my spirituality and life. There is a lot I do not blog about, because it is personal to me. Also, because I am still understanding and learning what I am doing.
I have been having the urge lately to talk about a couple other beings I work with. The last blog I posted about was about my animal companion, Samuel. Samuel is very close to me , but he is not the only one. The beings I would like to talk about in this blog are my two Dragon Companions, Celestial (a.k.a Celest) and Tyr’ Nyx.
I have been seeing a lot of posts lately about dragons appearing as well as people wanting to work with them. I know from personal experience that dragons do not just appear to anyone. They are very careful about who they work with and appear to, like most “mythical” creatures. Why they did such a thing is up for you and them to decided. Now, I am by no means the only person who works with them. There are people on and off here that have worked with Dragons longer than I have. I am by no means the keeper of all things knowledge about dragons. There are tons of different categories of dragon species and I have only been blessed to work with a few of them. On that note, I would like to discuss the two dragons I have been so humbled to work with.
The first one is Celestial. I have worked with her in this life for about 4 to almost 5 years. I know the species of dragon she is derived from is that of a Wyvern.
A wyvern /ˈwaɪvərn/, sometimes spelled wivern, is a legendary winged creature with a dragon‘s head, which may be said to breathe fire or possess a venomous bite, a reptilian body, two legs (sometimes none), and a barbed tail. (taken from Wikipedia, which I know is not a valid source of information. but it does have the correct definition of them.)
I say derived because her lineage of Wyvern has four legs. The front two actually being wings, which they can use to also help them walk and scale mountain sides. She is almost black as night and her size being big enough for a being to use her as a sky-mount (which I have on a few occasion. It is quite fun to have a dragon take you on a night ride). Though as a metaphysical being she is not limited to keeping herself that large size. She has been known to shrink her sizs and lay about my shoulders, normally kicking one of the other spirits I work with off it. I have never known her to be grouchy or upset… until recently. Certain events have caused my little dragon to be depressed and angered. She is a rather young dragon compared to Tyr’ Nyx
I’ll get to his age in a later paragraph. Celest is only around 5,500 years old, which is older that a lot of the new dragons around… but still quite young considering a lot have been around over 20 some odd thousands of years.
There is one rather unique trait about Celest that is not common in a lot of metaphysical beings. She is very adapt in moving throughout time and space. While I could go with her, I feel it is not my place to go. I do not meddle with time because I have learned that everything has its place. I am stronger because of the bad things that have happened to me, and how I grew from them. Changing those events may alter where I am now… and I like where I am. I always have. Its the lesson she has taught me in this life. While I have the option of going back to change, I just will never do it. Not every being has a time/space element. It is rare because not everyone can handle such an element. While time is relative… It is my belief that certain events in this reality are forever locked so no one can visit and change. That only a time element can visit because they are outside those laws that have been set. If this element goes back and drastically changes it, then they are banned. For it has forever altered time and created a new reality that may or may not have needed to exist. This is however my belief and who ever reads this does not have to accept that.
The next dragon companion I work with is Tyr’ Nyx. I have not worked with him nearly as long as Celest. I am still trying to understand him. I know him to be extremely serious and a bit moody. He does not stand for shit and will call any out on it, especially if it has to do with his brethren. This massive dragon is a protector of his kind and Mother’s Nature. I have no article or website to link to as to what kind of dragon. The closest thing I am able to find that resembles him is the DnD Magma/Black Dragon. His scales look like they were made from the earth, but are blackened and hardened by the fires that reside in him. The horns a top his head are in two sets. The are massive and make him very intimidating, which belies his kind heart for all life. To be able to handle the massive wings he has means his size is rather large. The only comparable size I can think of is that of a mountain. Though most times he appears half the size and never any smaller. I know from the past he is much, much larger. One of the reasons I can not find too much information on his type of dragon species is because he is as old as time itself. I have come to know that he is one of the first dragons created. That does not mean he was the only dragon created at that time, but that he was there when his kind was just beginning life. He does not speak to me about that time. That is not the lesson I am learning from him, nor is it something I need to know. What I am learning form his is the intricate balance his kind has with the metaphysical and the physical nature. It is interesting to see how our actions on the astral and different planes of existence transpire into this physical realm. He has shown me how much his kind and other “mythical” creatures play a role in keeping mother’s nature balanced in the metaphysical. Any time their work is disrupted things tend to make their way into the physical plane in not so pleasant ways. That does not mean we can not work with them. Not only do we have much to learn from them… they have much to learn from us. This again is something I believe, and you reader do not have to.
I do a lot of work with my dragon companions. It is not just magick dealings, but much more than that. It is a friendship. I find each moment with them precious for they are truly amazing beings. Dragons are not rainbows and sunshines. I know and accept that. Not ever dragon I have come by is nice to me, most have a neutral nature. They can be vicious; however, and brutal. Though any species has that capability. Do not take me in thinking them in a fluffy nature… I never do with most of the beings I work with. I accept all their sides and try to understand them. That is why it makes our friendship all the stronger.
I got really long winded on this one. I apologize. There are things I have left out about them as they are personal. They let me know what I could and could not write about… for they have lives and friends outside dealings with me and too much information can harm them. I do want to leave it open that if there is any questions about them and my work with them please ask. I will try to answer them the best I can.
