Mythical Spirit Guides: Mermaids, Fairies, Dragons and Unicorns
A spirit guide is a creature that comes to give you a message or lesson and may leave after. Sometimes a spirit guide from the pages of a book pops up: we call these mythical spirit guides. Some include: unicorns, fairies, mermaids, dragons, phoenixes, griffins, etc. Read on to learn more about these special guides and what they mean.
Fairy Spirit Guide
To have a fairy spirit guide sounds like a ridiculous idea. Our ancestors from Europe would disagree if we traveled back in time a few hundred years. Folks in Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Germany, Scandinavia, and elsewhere believed in what we now call “fairies”. The fairy faith was one that spanned countries and centuries and was once no laughing matter. So yes, you can have a fairy spirit guide. Wise women and men from the past believed fairies helped with medicine and magic. Witches were accused of fraternizing with elves and fairies and some even confessed to having fairy familiars.
The Nature of Fairy Spirit Guides
If you have a fairy that has come into your life and wants to help you in some way, let it. Use your instincts. If you feel the fairy’s intentions are bad, you don’t have to work with it. If the fairy is your spirit guide, it will bring wisdom and healing. Maybe you’ve had a fascination with fairies for years. Maybe a fairy has come to you in your dream to tell you how to heal yourself, this is your fairy guide (some might call a fairy godmother). Fairy Guides teach lessons: caring for the earth, keeping the old ways alive, caring for animals, healing, reckless abandon, skill in music or art, protecting the sacred. You are someone who exudes magic on a daily basis, that is why this mythical spirit guide chose you.
Unicorn Spirit Guide
The unicorn has been in legends for thousands of years and is even mentioned in the Bible! When the pilgrims first sailed for the New World, they were terrified and thrilled by tales of great beasts – one of which was the unicorn. Unicorns are magical horses with one horn in the middle of their forehead. Can you have a unicorn spirit guide? The unicorn chooses its human allies carefully. It is a finicky, majestic creature with an affinity for magical people. The unicorn is a manifestation of pure light – rainbow and white light – from the Universe. It will help you realign with your spiritual, divine purpose and higher self. They remind us to remember how to play and be light-hearted. When you have a unicorn as your guide, your crown chakra is open and balanced. You are able to receive messages from the Universe easily.
Mermaid Spirit Guide
The mermaid is another mythical spirit guide as old as time that still fascinates us today. There are tales of mermaids being spotted by sailors all over the world. Some mermaids are dangerous and cause seastorms, resulting in ship wrecks. In the past, when men drowned the mermaids were blamed for their deaths. However, there are also benevolent mermaids who save sailors from drowning. There are various names for mermaids including: mermaids, merfolk, finfolk, undines, sirens, etc.
Mermaid Symbolism & Spirit Guide
The mermaid or merman spirit guide represent the bridge between humans and water. Some say mermaids are spiritual beings, similar to fairies, while others believe mermaids were once real, physical creatures. Either way, you probably won’t see a mermaid in real life, but they will come to you in dreams and visions. This mythical spirit guide is a guardian of the oceans, lakes, rivers, seas, ponds, streams, and comes to you with a message to embrace your emotional side. Merfolk also represent seduction, forbidden love, and transition. Mermaids were said in many tales to have the ability to shapeshift – to change forms from a fish-like being into a human, etc.
Chosen by the Mermaids
If the mermaid guide chose you, you feel connected to the water element. You may be an emotional person or may need to get in touch with your emotions. You may also be a dreamer, one who sees things in their dreams. Mermaid help you improve your intuition and “psychic” abilities, as well as teach you how to weather the storm of life and love. If mermaid is your totem, you may have once lived a life in Atlantis or Lemuria. You are blessed to have mermaid spirit guide in your life.
Dragon Guardians and Allies
The dragon has terrified and fascinated us since ancient times. Only the bravest warriors would go after a dragon. The people of Medieval Europe feared dragons, but the ancient Celts and the Chinese saw dragons as land and river guardians. There are tales of dragons living in mountains and guarding treasure. Dragons were once protectors of sacred sites and might have actually been the spirit of those places that took a fearsome form to scare off intruders. In China, the dragon is good fortune. The people believed the rivers were great dragons and even named them after dragons. The dragon is seen in Chinese festivals and celebrations as a sign of honor and good luck.
Dragons = Transmutation
If the dragon has come to you via dreams, visions, or synchronicity, get ready for a period of transmutation. The dragon takes air into its body and transmutes it into fire when exhaled, thus the dragon totem represents transmutation, alchemy, fire magic, and transformation. The dragon is associated with the element of fire, but since it can fly and also guards the earth is associated with earth and air. There are also water dragons. In conclusion, the dragon is a special spiritual being as it encompasses all four elements.
