Around 2006 or 2007 thereabouts, I was guided through a Shamanic Journey by my Aunt. We cast a circle, prayed to the four directions and then I lay down while she played a Tibetan drumming tape. This created a sacred space.
When I closed my eyes I began to have a vision. The fire light cast a shadow on the wall of the cave distorting their brutish features into even more sinister shapes. Then from deep within the bowels of the Earth they summoned this ancient creature, older than all life on planet earth yet anthropoid in shape. It was a “segmented man” something that looked like some kind of millipede or something, but walking upright with with two arms and two legs and an appendage that looked like a head. But each appendage looked like the others, just a tube of segments. It did some kind of strange dance to the beat of the drumming.
Then I walked down the hole in the back of the cave that was opened up when they summoned the segmented man from the depths. The hole got really narrow and as I squeezed through I was somehow contorted into a dragon like shape, with a long serpentine body and became a dragon. I think I was a Western Dragon, with blue black skin like an Alligator. I passed through all four elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water mastering each one, swimming, flying, etc.
Then I found myself on the Campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison, walking down the bike path, between the campus and Lake Mendota. I stood about ten feet tall. I had all the same mental faculties yet I was covered in scales and had huge teeth and a long snout like a crocodile. So I was thinking “wow this is much better.” I never thought there could be anything that had huge teeth plus intelligence. At the time I had been experiencing a lot of social anxiety/fear especially around large crowds of people. But as a walked through the streets of Madison as a dragon, for the first time, I felt none of this. It was wonderful.
After my vision I felt very troubled. I had been reading a lot of books by David Icke. I feel slightly silly that I once took his writings so seriously, but he seems to speak of these Reptilians on several different levels, almost like he is speaking symbolically at times, though, at other times he seems to seriously assert, for example, that the members of the royal family are literally 12 foot lizards.
But one thing I read that piqued my curiosity was that these lizards supposedly lived in the “fourth dimension” which is believed to be the realm of archetypes. So for insights into this realm I did several Google searches which led me to Carl Jung.
After visiting my local Library for every book by and and about Karl Jung, I became familiar with a couple key concepts, namely, “The shadow” and “psychological projection”
I think now what this vision was about is reclaiming an aspect of myself I had alienated and relegated to my shadow. This manifested in projection of this aspect onto powerful elites.
By transforming into a dragon, I was able to reclaim this part of myself and also recognize a commonality between myself and elites and to reclaim power I had previously disowned and projected onto them.
This research also corresponds with a study I was doing around the same time of my family tree, which humorously, also linked me to these same “Reptilian Shape shifters” I won’t bore anyone with the details, since I find the only thing more boring than hearing about whom other people believe they were in a past live is who is in their family tree.
But I will say the effect of this eventually moved on from “Holy Cow I am a Reptoid!” to “There is no special bloodline. These are normal human beings like my self that through accidents of history are having alien origins and supernatural powers projected onto them.
In the words of Pogo Possum, which rings true even though its a cliche by now:
“I have seen the enemy and it is us”
