Dragons make frequent appearances in Zen literature. The dragon plays many roles - as a symbol of enlightenment and also as a symbol for ourselves. For example, "meeting the dragon in the cave" is a metaphor for confronting one's own deepest fears and obstacles. Dragons have been part of Chinese culture for at least 7,000 years. In China, dragons have long symbolized power, creativity, heaven, and good fortune. They are thought to have authority over bodies of water, rain, floods and storms.
Dragons are immensely intelligent beings that act as bridges between higher worlds or veils of consciousness. We work directly with them when we meditate with a crystalline carving of their form. They are master co-creators who act swiftly and creatively, imbuing our consciousness with flashing impressions and insights. It is our work to be quiet, listen, receive and ultimately act upon their guidance.
When dragon energy makes itself known it arrives with enormous speed and clarity. We may experience the process as similar to being swept off our feet.
Crystalline dragons make themselves known in crystal form. The physical crystal shape acts as a portal, the entrance into their world. These dragons often have a power name - not a name that controls them in any way, a name that signifies their relationship with us and ours with them.
I asked the Crystal Oversouls about their thoughts on Crystalline Dragons and here is what they said. And they have said so much that this work is either the beginning of a chapter or a book.
“ Beloved one. Dragons are similar in vibration to us yet are something unto themselves. Dragons often visit our temples. Sometimes they come to rest and recharge, other times to impart their experiences into our crystalline structure.
Their knowledge is immense, and having served your universe since the beginning of time, they are Master collectors of information. They have their own hierarchies and network, co-operating with Earth since Lemuria. When they choose to work with a human it is because the chosen one is able to take the energy influx that is part of the contact with them. Sometimes the sudden high energy can only be taken in small doses as the human being will need a period of adjustment. But as the process takes shape the length of time the adjustment takes decreases. A dragon’s aura is immense. When a dragon encounters a human its light-body will over lap the human’s and thus the individual will experience an elevation of consciousness”.
A few days later I posed another question, “do dragons need us? Could they not work with the Earth without us?”
The Crystal Oversouls responded, “dragons are divine creatures imbued with gifts beyond human comprehension. They work well alone. Yet they enjoy the company of humans and have done so since Lemuria. You could liken them to divine beings who have watched humanity fall and rise, rise and fall. They have immense compassion and through your interaction with them you learn. They want to teach and remind you of just how vast and multi-dimensional you are. These beings of celestial consciousness seek to enliven your journey, to collaborate and enlighten you”.
I then asked another question, “do you need to have a crystal dragon skull in order to work with them?” The Crystal Oversoul’s answer surprised me. “Beloved One. No, only certain people - the ones we call the Crystal Dragon Riders. These people will work with dragon skulls. They are not for everyone and many will find other ways of connecting. For the Crystal Dragon Riders a physical crystalline skull is important as it is the vehicle by which the dragon and human will communicate. The dragon skull is the means by which the Crystal Dragon Rider enters and exits the dragon’s light-body”.
