How To Raise a Crystal Dragon

Raising a crystal dragon is no easy feat. They have these wings and constantly want to fly away. What is a crystal dragon you ask? It’s a creature that some people believe is mythical, but I believe lives under my roof.

The crystal part comes from a being that is energetically very sensitive. This creature can sense and feel your thoughts even before you do. And it sometimes doesn’t recognize its own feelings from those of others around it.

And the dragon part comes from the spikes down his back that poke out in defense, the long scaly tail that whips around in either anger or excitement, and the fire that flies out of his mouth from time to time.

One of the things about crystal dragons in particular, is their emotions tend to be extreme. If they are happy, they are really happy. But if they are disappointed, they either lash out (watch out for their tail!), or get quite angry (watch out for that fire!).

The care and feeding of a crystal dragon can be a challenge, as they don’t like to sleep when get sleepy, and they want to eat (nibble and graze) all the time, but are the world’s most picky eaters. This makes them chronically tired, grumpy, and hungry. It’s best to keep a steady supply of mac and cheese on hand, but make sure it’s one your dragon prefers or you’ll be throwing money down the drain. There is no forcing these dragons to eat something they don’t like.

As for getting your dragon to sleep, minimize all distractions, make sure you have a white noise generator for them, and because they are afraid of the dark, keep a light on. If your crystal dragon is still fairly young, be prepared to be woken up a few times a night on most nights. Remember, they are very sensitive, which means they pick up energies that you probably don’t notice, like entities and spirits. And because of all of this, they are prone to anxiety and waking up at all hours of the night.

If you’ve managed to survive the first five years of your little dragon’s life, hang on, because the next five will have their challenges as well. Some things will be easier: they won’t be as prone to destroying the furniture. But there will still be challenges for sure.

You’ll likely want your crystal dragon to be educated, to ensure them a bright future. But these creatures need to be taught in very special ways. After all, trying to hold a pencil in a claw just doesn’t work. So, you’ll have to get really creative.

The best thing you can do for your little dragon? Love it. Remind it every day how special and amazing it is. Make sure it realizes that it’s not like any other dragon, and that’s a good thing.

    And remember to love the Mother of that Crystal Dragon, too — she is one capable lady! MJ

  2. Oh fellow mama….this was beautiful. I also love the comment from MJ above.
    I have two crystal dragons and they were both on the edge of shattering last week. This post is a lovely reminder of “proper caring and feeding”…it makes me smile and is exactly what I needed today. xo

    Only just caught up with this post, Susan. It’s so beautifully written and totally nails that special task you have taken on. Lucky young dragon to have such an aware Mum xx

  4. Thank you so much Jan. There are moments when I struggle raising this special dragon. And then the universe brings me perspective and understanding, often through dear friends. He has definitely been the catalyst for my growth.
