Bonding With Your Dragon Spirit
**These methods are pretty broad spectrum and can also be used outside of dragon spirits. These are just techniques and things I have done and this post is by no means all inclusive. Thank you**
Bonding with your dragon spirit is an important thing to do, I think. It helps you get closer with them and that opens the way to a good friendship and partnership! Regardless of what kind of relationship you have with them (provided it’s a healthy one), doing these activities to feel closer is a great way to continue with your practice!
Sharing your passions!
Doing some sort of activity along side your dragon spirit that you love is a good one. You are sharing something that you love with them and they are being included in it! Do you like going for a walk? Great, invite your dragon with you! Like crafts? Great! work with them so you both can create something awesome! How about cooking? Also good, you can share the results when everything is finished! The dragon spirit I currently work with actually likes to play games with me. I found out through playing some Skyrim music and he was curious where it came from and now I actually have a Dragon age and Assassins Creed save file with his name on it.
I’ve always felt that spells are a great offering for your dragon. But casting a spell with their help not only is good for working with your dragon, it’s also a great way to feel closer. Even if it’s something small, like setting a circle! I personally love to ask my dragon spirits to help me set a circle and it was always so nice because he would use his wings to do it so it was like I was in a tent. It was so wonderful! This is a great way to further your dragon magic and really get close and I strongly encourage it! Of course this is only if the dragon in question is ok with it.
This technically could fall under the passions section but I kept it on its own since some people may not really know how to make music or be musically inclined. But you can listen to music with them, look for songs that they like and have it playing just for the two of you. I have a playlist on youtube for Rivaz and sometimes I listen to it when I’m going to sleep or I’ll play it when I’m trying to communicate with him. I also like to sing for him and that is another thing you can do!
I think this is a big one. Using the cards or pendulum or whatever medium you use is a great way to bond with them! I have a reading in my shop available for purchase in which I speak with whatever dragon spirit I’m working with (currently Rivaz) and they will give you a message or advice!
This kind of ties in with divination but can stand on its own. Talking with your dragon spirit is a great way you can get to know them, ask them questions and grow together. Plus, dragon spirits can have some great advice even if its not always what you want to hear.
So, this can also be considered an offering but I think it is a great one! Sharing your meals, I think, is a very personal thing. Think about how many times you’ve gone out to eat with friends? This can be a similar thing! I also think its a good thing to share some of your favorite foods with them! I like to share my coffee and tea!
Astral Projecting/Lucid Dreaming
This is a great one and together you can go on adventures! I have a post about one of my own experience here. This is a fun way to see more things and grow closer. There’s something to be said about discovering such places that you cannot normally see.
Reading and sharing stories is a fun one. And every dragon may have their own preference! Lore, myths, short stories all kinds of things can be used! You can even share your favorite works with them! Or even more so you can read them your own work if you write!
I like writing poetry and coming up with spells to work with dragons and it’s a good way. You could also work with them to make your own story! This section could fit in with a few other places on this list but I still felt like I could warrant it’s own spot!
Carrying offerings with you
This is one that I really like doing if my dragon spirit gives me permission. I often leave stones and crystals as an offering or even jewelry and I love to be able to carry those items with me when I leave the house. It’s like a little extra reassurance that they are with me and it really makes me feel more connected, especially since they were ok with me taking a piece of their hoard with me.
This may seem silly but if your dragon is ok with it, sleeping with them is a good way to bond. My current dragon spirit is not really big on cuddles so I don’t really get to do it anymore but the previous dragon spirits I had loved it and it was so nice! I highly recommend this method if you can!
