Be one of us

"Be one of us" shows a dragon ritual based on a dream I had.
A red dragon visited me in my room and asked me to come with him.
I followed him to a "dragon land", a certain place where the dragon clans hold their meetings, which I visit in my dreams often.
When I arrived, in the "room" was a big magical circle in that I should join.
Around that circle were a lot of dragons from different elements, in different colours, much more than on this picture here.
The moment when I joined into the circle I felt a lot of energy flowing through my whole body and I changed my humanbody into my dragon form.
Then the golden dragon told me that from now on the dragons will appreciate me as one of them, as part of their family, as part of their clan, as a true dragon.


It took me a lot of time to draw the picture... I hope you like it!


The dragons in front in the picture (from left to right):


:bulletyellow: Golden dragon: Dragon of Spirit
:bulletwhite: White dragon: Alvrericjas the heaven-spheres dragon, my inner dragon
:bulletblack: Silver dragon: Moondragon Krysalis, my Totem


The dragons in the background (from let to right):

:bulletgreen: Green dragon: Dragon of Air/Wind
:bulletblack: Brown dragon: Dragon of Earth

Hmn... i got some strange thought. Almost always when we thinks about dragons we are thinking about the european dragons ( yes, yes ik you are moonlight one :) ) You showed soul transformation ( hmn that's pretty interesting because i also had i dream. After it i got that i was from beggining next to dragons and i discovered the truth about myself. Unfortunatly i can't remember that dream ) Well then... If dragons have same souls what about lungs and asian ones? Are they also dragons in some way and have same soul or they are just in "other" category?

After this dream? Only thing that i can remember is that i was shocked. Some minutes later i started to realize that my whole life, habits and hobbies were pretty similar to the dragons character. For whole time i was searching for something that makes me feel good and expresses me fully. I remember when i was interested in gryphins and other winged animals, but they were not making this "feeling" effect at all. I also known many things about mineralogy. Before that dream i wasn't very interested in dragons, however i always had an incomparable feeling when i was seeing them... something like melting from happiness combined with goosebumps at same time. When i was learning about them more and deeper - the stronger was this effect. After some time i was able to "summon" this feeling just by thinking about dragons. Many days later my mind went crazy and imagined ( or it wasn't imagination ) perfect looking ( for myself ) orange-red dragon with blue addictives. I was seeing ( i think ) him and he was seeing me. But also i was able to see myself by his eyes. He ( or me ) flew into sky at night and i saw my city with perfection too big to even imagine. I was even able to see other people what are they doing and what are they feeling. That is how started my "dragon insanity". Months later i had a dream that i described in one of my previous comments. That was an punch of truth because dragon from my dream was looking same as my "imaginated" one but a little younger. I understood that this all weren't just an imagination. Now i can easily communicate with "my being"; it fills my life with power and joy, and helps me in my most crisis situations.

Not sure if I understood your question correctly...
Over this world are many different dragon races. European ones, Chinese dragons, Wyverns, Amphiteres, .... I think depending on enviroment we meet more of a certain race of dragons.
Do you get what I mean?

Du solltest dir einmal dieses Video ansehen, du solltest erstaunliche Paralellen feststellen.

Die Avatare sind übrigens Verkörperungen der Drachen.

Nun, ich hab's mir angeschaut, bzw. partweise überspungen.
Welche Parallelen soll ich denn nun feststellen?

Wie ich schon erwähnte sind die Avatare die Verkörperungen von 8 Drachen in 8 Farben und vom Chaos. Sowie wird die Schwester der Kaiserin, die Sendbotin der Verlorenen; die 2013 zur Avatarin herhoben wurde; in den Ritualkreis beschworen.
Der Kreis wird auf den Karten des Festivals als Kreis  mit Pentagramm dargestellt.

Dann hab ich wohl ein klein wenig zu viel übersprungen xD

Vielleicht sagt es dir ja an sich zu.
Ein bisschen Hintergrund:
Aus dem Chaos

Vor dem Anbeginn der Zeit, als einzig das Urchaos existierte, entstanden die ersten Drachen.

Der Kupferne, geboren um zu herrschen und das Chaos zu ordnen und der Graue, der Vater der Zeit.

Kupfer schuf Silber und Schwarz, und mit ihnen den Kreislauf von Entstehen und Vergehen.

Er schuf den Roten, der alle Dinge in Bewegung hält, den Grünen, den er zum Wächter über den Kreislauf macht und schließlich den Goldenen, damit er Silber und Schwarz im Gleichgewicht hält.

Der Graue war bei all dem sein Freund und Berater.

Die Schöpfung der Drachen

Und auf Geheiß des Kupfernen erschuf der Silberne die Welten, ließ sie wachsen und gedeihen, so wie der Schwarze sie vergehen ließ.

Doch der Graue machte einen Vorschlag, welcher dem Kupfernen gefiel. Der Silberne sollte eine Zeit lang mehr erschaffen, als der Schwarze zerstört und so etwas von Dauer schaffen.

An jenem Ort entstanden die Völker und der Grüne mochte sie. Er bat den Kupfernen sie in seine Obhut nehmen zu dürfen und der Kupferne gewährte ihm diesen Wunsch.

Auch der Rote war von den Völkern angetan, denn sie waren voller Tatendrang und so wie der Grüne und der Rote, begannen auch die anderen sich mehr und mehr für die sterblichen Völker zu interessieren.

Die Erste Drachenwelt war geboren.

This is amazing!
The dragon of water is my totem!! :D :D

I wish i had more dreams of dragons, i think they are there in the background, i glimpse them sometimes and sometimes i myself am part one.
Though at times i have some robot/transformer friend as well XD
this is amazing
i have had several dreams of flying, and in all of them i was either learning or struggling with staying aloft ^^;
(Fly damnit! :shakedragon:)
My VERY FIRST flying dream was when the dragon transformer, megatron, from the tv series; beast machines held my hand and was teaching me to fly Day Dreaming about Love

Thank you! :la:
How cool is that :-)
A moon/crystaldragon is my Totem, but I always had also a special connection to the element of water and to a waterdragon :-)

I think you will have more dreams about them, I'm sure!^^

Hey, that sounds familiar to me! :D
I remember in my childhood I had learn to fly too! It was very difficult to rise higher O.o
But with time, with every dream more it was more easy. Today I need just a simple flap to rise high :-)
It's a great feeling :heart:

Oh wow thats amazing
Perhaps some day i will soar in my dreams and experience that freedom
It is one of my deepest wishes, to fly in real life and not need to be afraid of hights

I just recently realized i have dreamt of being a dragon after this!
XD silly me, i even drew it, just forgot it was a dream
I had been out with my friends, one a raven and one a sphinx/lion
and i had gone off to be by myself passing over a very small stream then got to a clearing by a huge flat lake.
Later starscream(a transformer who had been following my friends) asked my frends if they had seen me and they told him where i went. He followed my tracks then went to sit down on a rock by the lake just enjoying the shear peaceful atmosphere when i decided to dragon sneek up to him, stepping in a pond on the way XD
