Red Dragon Dream

chinese dragonDRAGON DREAMING

To see a dragon in your dream, signifies that you let yourself get carried away by your passion. This kind of behavior may lead you into the hands of enemies. You need to exercise some self-control.

Red Dragons – Due to the color’s red symbolic achievements, these dragons can vary. On one hand, the dragon can be passionate and drive for what he or she does. For instance, they may enjoy terrorizing small towns. On the other, they can be a fire-breathing menace that spew blood and hate around the world. Often, these dragons are known to have a bad temperament.

Many dragons in mythology are red, and many of them that are in poems are red, too. Why? Red has conflicting symbolism: blood, fire, love, and passion. It is easier to put a face on a creature with one or more of these aspects, yes? Poetic compositions especially exaggerate red.

For Eastern Dragons, Red is the color of chaotic storms. The Red dragons are a symbol of the West, and they cause storms when they fight in the night.

The Dream

I was hot, sweating, tired and very thirsty. I had been walking for a long time going up a path to the top of a mountain. I hurt everywhere and I was very frustrated and unhappy. Then I came to a cross roads so I sat down and thought about which path to take. I started along it and I hadn’t gone far when I came around a corner and saw I saw a puff of gray smoke and then a flash of rainbow coloured light.

Suddenly towering over me was a huge red fire breathing dragon with orange glittering eyes sitting on a pile of treasure overflowing from a chest. I was afraid of it but I was determined to move forward so I ran at it shouting and pointing my finger at it. I screamed something at the top of my lungs and the dragon and treasure disappeared into a wispy yellow mist. I looked up and saw sky and sunshine above me and I continued my journey.
