My comment to part 2:

“I’ve had plenty of experiences such as those you’ve described. I was always puzzled as a child why everyone was so horrified about them. Sometimes they scared me, when I was young, because no one was around to explain them. But I read, and lived, and learned to respect and appreciate them.

One of my favorites came during a raging thunderstorm in a cabin in the backwoods of Ohio’s Appalachia foothills. We lived near the top of a hill with forest on 3 sides and an opening to fields and a pond below us. I love storms, but in Ohio the pressure shift could be so dramatic that I found myself becoming VERY drowsy despite all the flashing lights and loud thunder. The air smelled so wonderful that I sat in front of an open window and just started breathing deeply to take it in.

I fell into a very light sleep/very deep trance doing so– and I had a most amazing, ultra-reality, full-senses, “dream”. In this place, the storm was a dragon. I was in a tent outside, and the dragon- having felt my presence, was spitting water at the sides and top of the tent. It seemed to want my attention.

So I went outside (in the mind-state, I was inside by the window physically) to look more closely. I heard this beast breathing and was astonished to see a European-style dragon with horns, scales, wings, of a yellow-orange-copper color and just buzzing with electricity. It had deep green snake eyes and when I looked at his head– he (definitely male!) looked into my eyes! It was an astonishing few moments!

I could FEEL, to the depths of my soul, that this beast, only the size of a school bus in my vision, was also the massive monstrous storm that was miles wide and touching heaven at the same time as he blew air and water through the air and touched the earth with electrical charges. He was full of energy (ha!) and fierceness, though not rage. He seemed to be FIXING something and emoting power and movement. It is hard to describe– but such a profound understanding was deeply humbling to me. I realized that “dragons were REAL” and where the whole concept of them came from!

I was a little scared– he could be dangerous, this individual dragon! He beat his wings and air rushed by me. I saw this copper-colored dragon had a peculiar purple aura as well. He wanted me to come outside! SHOW! SHOW!

I ‘woke’ from my dream/trance, feeling very strange indeed! But the order to come outside was strong inside me. I could still feel the dragon’s presence in the storm– he WAS the storm! I felt a personal connection now even more powerfully than before and my sleepiness was gone. I went outside, but stayed under the eves and looked around, lightning was flashing, but I knew I was safe (still not wandering out into the open because– that dragon could change his mind about me!)

And I was looking at the top of a treeline and I saw St. Elmos Fire touching the top of an oak– just the oak, no other trees around it! It looked like the deep blue-purple aura of the Copper Dragon. It was only there for a couple of seconds, if that. But so beautiful! I knew that was what the dragon wanted to show. Just like that I made the connection of how all the colors of lightning I’ve seen were the colors of the dragons that produced them– red, copper, yellow, green, lavender, teal, on and on— and all thunderstorms were the physical bodies of the dragons– whose ‘other’ body was the classic dragon shape. THAT was an experience I’ve always loved to the depths of my being!

(Notice how “IT” became “HE” after that experience? Goes with everything you’re saying here.) “

And JMG’s reply:

Larissa, any traditional Chinese scholar would have nodded, smiled, and poured you another cup of tea, because in Chinese tradition, that’s exactly what dragons are: the inner aspect of rain and storm. That must have been a wondrous experience!
