I think my spirit animal is a dragon.

Yeah, I know - strange statement from Swanne the science guy. But I got native american ancestry, so the question of my spirit animal has always been of some fascination to me.

And I think it's a dragon.

Some say that your spirit animal is an animal you love alot, but in my case I love birds far more than dragons - yet it is the mythological creature which left signs all throughout my life.

When I was a wee baby, a dragonfly flied to me and landed right on me. At that time, dragonflies were rare where I lived. The legend says that dragonflies used to be dragons.

When I was about ten, I went in a chinese restaurant. Out of nowhere, a chinese toddler (about four years old) walked right at me, waving a sword (made of foam, if course), and decided to pretented I was a dragon.

"What? " I said.

There was nothing to do, he wouldn't stop calling me a dragon.

"But I hate dr... " I started to say, but before I could finish my sentence he gave me a good poke with his sword.

For the record it hurt - eyes are sensitive things.

A few years later I discovered I was colour-blind. I mean, until now I didn't know that the condition existed, so I thought my vision anomaly was because I was stupid, hehe. Colour-blindness is a condition I share with non-human mammals... And snakes.

Then I started having friends (not alot, though - I was a very lonely and shy boy). Most of them had the same name. I met only four good friends. Out of four, three of them had the same name: Michael. Yes, as in Michael and the dragon.

I dunno, just odd signs all across my life.

My soul is ancient and a bit odd - I have the memories of a life before this one, I have had visions both in space (events going on in the World) and in time (events to come). My mind is deep, I've got high intelligence but also strong intuition; incredibly benevolent to those who are good yet highly mischievous to those who wrong me; so I don't know.

I was caressed on my belly by a dolphin just before my daughter was born and she has a birth mark on her arm which I tell her was from a dolphin kiss . Maybe her spirit animal is a dolphin. I was the only one the dolphin came up to our of a group of us in the sea. It was magical.
Sorry I found a few minutes to answer.
I would be keen to hear your past life memories.

Dolphins are highly intelligent, and are capable of deep feelings. She should be proud!

I think we have a few things to learn from dolphins.

As for my other life, well, all I can remember is the last days. Growing old, realising that most of my life was behind me, feeling humility and nostalgia as I was sitting in a park, holding the hand of my aging wife. In this other life I had run out of time.

Time is short. That's what I learned from this other life. But if you are wise you can make each minutes of Time last for eternity.

Get real Swanne. You're not that important. Maybe it is a cigarette smoking pigeon.

Very interesting. It sounds that could very likely be your spirit animal. I think it's worth a try to contact a Shaman about your spirit animal maybe? I've always been curious about other's input on the matter. I'll eventually get around to doing it too, and maybe it'd be cool to hear from a Shaman's view. Even if you don't really necessarily believe in that sort of stuff.

Were you King Solomon or Julius Caesar in a past life?

Dragon is top of the spirit animal pyramid or is there anything else better?

Maybe your spirit animal is just a mean bird, maybe a giant California condor?

You see, the simple truth is there is not a shred of evidence that there was ever a dragon in the New World. They could have flown over here, I suppose, but I know of no reports of UFD (Unindentified Flying Dragons) anywhere west of Ireland.

What year were you born? In the Chinese zodiac there is a "Year of the Dragon"... goes in 12 year cycles, so for example -

I was born in 1964 and am a 'dragon', so if your birth year going up from there (assuming you're younger than me) is 1976, 1988, or 2000 you would be a dragon too..

You may want to do an actual guided meditation on the subject if it does interest you.

The reason I say that is because lions are my favourite animal and I have always been drawn to the whole concept of how they appear to be strong etc...

Then I did my meditation on the subject at hand and found out that in fact my spirit animal is the raven, not the lion as I would have thought.

Only in hindsight did it make sense to me why it's a raven.

I love dragons. I see them as the greatest of all protectors and believe they've been intentionally much maligned over the eons so we would shun and fear them. Puff and I go waaaaay back. There's an interesting story about the benevolent creator gods of humans being dragons.

Have you ever seen a dragonfly migration? Unbelievable. Thousands and thousands of them passed by. I never witnessed one until 2010 and I'll never forget it. It's amazing I never saw one before then, I don't think I even realized they migrated together, because I'm a nature gal through and through and am very in tune with the workings of the natural world.

A nice topic! A refreshing change of subject matter for ATS.

I tend to stay out of political threads. I've been working on physics stuff, it's more stimulating than political trivialities.

But yeah, I'm doing great! Good to see you, how are you doing?
