Embrace of the Dragon
“All she could think about was how hot his kiss had
been in the dream, and how delicate was the touch
of his claws.”--Thea Harrison, DRAGON BOUND.
When the demons encamped in my bones and
joints, short-circuiting my peripheral nervous
system, by dispatching their Pac-Man ninjas
to attack and devour the mylon sheathing around
the large conductive nerves in my spine, I was
bowled over by their bellicose battering and
piranha bites, sinking fast like a cracked stone
into a deep pool of stygian water.
I searched frantically for cures, for healing, for
answers, for remission, but I only found coal
mine darkness, despair, and schools of red
herrings. All the healers told me I had to accept
the process, for I had designed it myself. I awoke
one sweaty night stiff with pain, drenched with
tears, and I recognized my hypnagogia--moving
toward wakefulness, but short of the transition.
The walls in the room turned to castle stone, and
they began to rise up, stopping at 50’. I levitated to
the parapets and I could see dozens of castle
towers, all flying spear-shaped yellow flags, rippling
wild in the wind. I floated back down to my recliner.
I noticed small barred windows mid-wall. Grey-white
smoke began to billow out of the bars, soon filling
Dark clouds gathered over my head. Suddenly a
featureless figure swung out of my chest. It had a
body, but I could see right through it. Something told
me that this was my Higher Self abandoning me. I
reached out and grabbed it by the wrists. Without
warning, twin searing bolts of white light flashed out
of the smoke and struck me in the chest. I recognized
the kundalini energy, the kiss of the dragon. The
figure leaped back into my chest just as two more
parallel bolts of pure light struck me, sealing the
egress. There was the thick smell of lavender in the
air. Apparently my transition to the other side of the
veil would have to wait, for now I had more lessons
to learn, and a new challenge to meet.
Wings like B-17;
with blue eyes radiating
such loving white light.
