Dragons are harbingers of every sort of fortune. Not only do dragons bring intangible things like powers and abilities, but they are also known to bring tidings of great wealth. They can also be judges and punishers if you have done wrong. In general, however, dragons are a symbol of great beneficence and joy.

If you dream about a dragon attacking you or breathing fire at you, it could mean that far from being a positive dream, yours is actually a warning from the great spirits that you have done a great wrong and need to correct your mistake and bring honor back into your life.

    I had a series of five epic dreams. The baby dragon came in dream 2. The series ended when I set the baby dragon free at the top of a mountain fortress. It took three dreams just getting there. The dreams came after a lead a young woman on a healing journey the day before. The dreams took an entire day and I was unable to function on a normal level.

  4. Dreamt I was a dragon, flying. Trained by a young child I know. In dream, I went through various uncomfortable scenarios. Went back to where my “dragoness” began. The house, in neighborhood, was dark shambles, about 20 tall to short headstones of people that have passed while I was gone so long being a dragon. I look next door and my aged neighbor is there. He said, “I knew you’d return.” I settled and strolled his drive. Found lost love, “I’m so sorry,” I said. He said, “no need to apologize.” I leapt down in the drive, brushed dry, sandy grit from atop the stone. I said, “Is this yours?” He said, “Yes..”. I said, “Good. I just wanted to tell you I love you.” He said, “I know.”
    “You do?”
    “How’d you know?”
    “I’ve always known,” he closed.
