UPDATE 1: Morning of 13th January 2017
Last night I had a very, very important dream.
In my dream I was walking around what looks like a theme park where visitors come in there thousands daily to walk through displays go on rides etc But it’s not like a mechanical theme park it’s more like a park filled with natural exhibits that you walk through and over to see how nature was in the past … it had board walks over the forest floor much like we have walk ways through national parks in our world to protect and prevent us from disturbing the plants and wildlife.
There were many people moving through the park and you could see ahead they were bunching up at certain exhibits to look and admire the attraction. I was dressed in a uniform and was wearing a hat unlike everyone else. No one else was dressed like me and I had several park assistants following me diligently waiting and listening for any words or instructions I had. I felt like I was doing an inspection.
We proceeded on and came around a bend to face a large group milling and commenting whilst looking at a water course that was flowing below the walk way. It was behaving strangely and the water levels had dropped to reveal masses of over grown plants all tangled along the sides and what faintly appeared through the water to be a knot in the stream that was acting like a drain sucking some of the water into it whilst the rest of the stream was passing along. This problem had obviously been there for a very long time and it was only because of the drop in water level that it had become noticeable. I realised why I had been called. I was there to fix it. I instructed the ones around me to get some gardening equipment a rake, shears, etc which they did. Now we were standing on a walkway above the churning stream /river below us, even though the water level was lower it was still surging past at a quite a speed. Anyway suddenly a long handled rake fell off the walk way. I watched it roll off in the corner of my eye and I got annoyed with the idiots around me and jumped off the walk way to retrieve the rake before it damaged any of the plants. I was waist deep in the surging water but it seemed unable to wash me away. I waded slowly towards the blockage which as I got closer looked like 2 large rocks that had come together and been drawn into a hole in the bend of the stream which was like an underwater cavern or cave and these two rocks were jammed in the entrance. Now these rocks were jammed solid. But to my surprise I could reach one of them and as I touched it I felt I could push it and possibly free it. I seemed to have unlimited strength and with a gentle push one corner of the stone that was being held in the hole came free.
All of a sudden the rock moved I fell back as it emerged and was immediately totally surprised beyond description.. I recognised the emerging rock and said Oh my god !!! Is that you Aroki? Is it you?
The stone form turned slowly around to face me and as it emerged from the water I was filled with surprise and emotions … here right in front of me was a dragon I had known from a long, long time ago… he smiled at me and pointed to the other rock under the surface and said Sida..
I was immediately filled with urgency , joy ,fear and purpose and we both turned to Sida and worked to free her… as we were freeing her tears were filling my eyes. My heart was tightening in my chest.
We urgently worked her free and finally managed to unhook her from the edges of the hole and she emerged. Aroki pointed to a stone bank just back downstream from us and I knew what he wanted me to do, we both carried Sida to the rocky bank, she was smiling and looking at me just as I remember she used to do so long ago.. my heart felt like it was going to explode, tears rolling down my cheeks , nose running…
We sat for what seemed an eternity on the shore as everyone looked down on the three of us mouths wide in shock and awe. I think none of them had ever seen a dragon let alone 2 dragons.
All my memories of Aroki and Sida flooded back into my consciousness and the love I had always had for them both, but especially for Sida.
I remembered how Sida would fly down to me, I would feel the warm puffs of air being pushed from her wings towards me as she came gently down to me, she would gently bring her hands onto each of my cheeks and as she did this I would smell her musty sweet breath as it entered into my lungs. It felt like droplets of stars were entering me flowing into my heart lighting it up with so much loving … Sida would kiss me on the forehead smile and gently flutter away laughing as she spread her essence of joy everywhere and always just in sight was her brother Aroki watching protecting her whilst loving her like no other being. He adored her and had done since she had been born. Its hard to put into words but Sida is what I suppose we would understand as an Angel Dragon. Her presence just makes everything better and that is what she does..She is something so beautiful and so loving your heart just sings in her presence. You are an emotional mess but in a wondrous way. I hope that my words convey how I felt around her.
Anyway I had all these memories swirling around in my mind whilst we sat on the shoreline and I spoke to Aroki and said “I thought you had both gone away and were doing your thing … god that was so long ago. What happened?”
Aroki said “ we were tricked into coming to the stream and Sida was playing in the bend of the stream which we did not know had the hole in it. I was watching her as you know I always do. (he said this in his usual bashful manner almost embarrassed by his love for his sister) When a huge wall of water came rushing down onto us forcing Sida into the hole. I reacted out of instinct diving with all my strength towards her to try to reach and protect her only to be caught in the surge myself. We felt like we were being pushed by some hidden hand into the hole forced in and ended up pinned by the uneven sides of the hole unable to move. The water continued to rise above us and we have been trapped there ever since. Unable to free ourselves, until you came along… it has been a very long time”
Aroki suddenly looked me directly in the eye and said “there are others that have been trapped like this, tell your others that in dreaming you can free them if you find them.”
Sida then spoke quietly in her soft childlike voice and said “you must free them, free them all” She was quietly saddened by the thought of others being trapped and when you are around a dragon such as Sida you feel her sadness as strongly as you feel her joy. I felt like my heart was being stabbed with a huge metal spike.
Aroki said “tell the others the ones that can dream to look for:
Fire that does not rise
Water that flows against its current
Earth that sits out of place
Air that does not move”
“This is how they have trapped and held the others, understand it is only in your dream state that you can free us, you are not held back by the physical laws of your time in your dreams. They don’t want you to understand how much power you have in your dream state. Ask your others to look when they are dreaming, look for what is out of place…. Free as many as you can… now is the time”
I suddenly started to feel and anger rising in my heart as I dwelled on what they had endured. As my anger grew my dream started to fade. The last thing I remember was hearing Sida’s soft voice saying “tell them to look in their dreams”
And I woke up, it was 4.05 am it was dark so I went to my lounge and wrote their names down and sat still feeling totally drained and still slightly teary. Every time I read this my heart aches… as old memories flood into my body moving me emotionally like a roller coaster.
So believe or not when you are dreaming if you see something odd don’t dismiss it, look at it, you may get a surprise but I can assure you if it is a trapped dragon freeing it will change you on a level that you will carry forever. When we are dreaming we are what we can and should be.
