Around fifteen years ago, we visited Ashe church, near Overton, in Hampshire, looking for the source of the River Test. We were doing it out of interest, rather than anything else, because at that time, I was studying archaeology and interested in the little Saxon church there.
Nothing much happened on the first visit, because the source of the river rose on land that was not public, so we could only see it from a distance. On a subsequent visit, however, we met the owner, and he gave us permission to go through his field so we could be beside it.
Sitting on the island of vegetation in the middle of a little lake created by the spring, there was a large green dragon. We were both aware of it, my friend Chris and I, but it wasn’t there alone. Its babies surrounded it; little green dragonlets playing on the island.
We had never seen dragon-babies before and had no idea what they were meant to represent. We had, however, met with the green-dragon-energies before on our travels, in St. Nectan’s waterfall, where the water gushes through a slate hole, carved out by the waters of the river Trevillet. The Trevillet rises as a spring not so far away from the site, and its influence stretches from its source to the sea, where Tintagel Castle stands. It travels via the river, until it pours through the slate hole at St. Nectan’s, and then moves overland to the castle. Its tail is at the source of the river; its head at the castle.
(After first connecting to the Dragon energies here, we found a little book about it! Energies come through the subconscious, so this author was aware, without realising it perhaps, of its energy).
So, here we were, looking at a mother dragon, and her little ones, with no idea what to do next. We didn’t know what they were for, either. Although we knew they were associated with springs, we knew nothing more. We left, still none the wiser, and returned to Winchester where we visited the three sarsen stones in the Abbey Grounds, near King Alfred’s statue. While I was walking across the grass, I noticed a green baby dragon hanging onto my calf, like a toddler. This was so ridiculous I was afraid to say it out loud, so I kept it to myself. It was too much like a children’s story but, of course, it really only meant that I had somehow carried a portion of this green dragon energy with me when I left the Test spring.
Our minds create images of energies we can accept, on some level, otherwise, they are nebulous and we do not understand their purpose or function. The unconscious knows how we process information, and how we learn about symbols, so it presents information in a way that makes sense.
But I was keeping my mouth shut, anyway.
Back in the Abbey gardens, with a baby dragon hanging out of me, I got the feeling that we needed to go to the Cathedral, and as soon as we set foot in the door, the baby let go of my leg and leapt up the stonework of the building to the roof, where it remained. I still didn’t understand why it was there and wondered if it had anything to do with the blue energy-line that runs beneath the Cathedral. Only on later visits did I understand more.
After I left the dragon baby at the Cathedral, ‘they’ then instructed me to visit the Bishop’s Place, which was close by. Another baby dragon energy left my leg and flew to the top of one wall, where it too remained.
I never told anyone, except Eartha (who knows about this stuff), and Chris, until two friends, visiting the Cathedral, and palace, separately, and on separate occasions, told me they had seen a young green dragon-energy flying around the ceiling of the Cathedral and around the inside of the bishop’s palace! They had grown since I had left them there, and now that they had seen them too, I didn’t feel so crazy and could share how they got there.
Over the years, the dragons have grown, and other people have reported back to me about their presence. It is always such good confirmation and worth not telling anyone until getting that. When other people see what you see, you realise you are perfectly sane and rational, no matter how things appear to the contrary.
As my guides say: “Green dragon energy creates an environment of growth and potential. Where the spring rises, there is the promise of life.” Pretty succinct and pretty clear. Because this is dragon energy, which is elemental, that new life comes as vegetation; the food which feeds us, and all creatures that exist on the planet, including the planet herself.
Those two green dragons were anchored there nearly fifteen years ago, and we have watched them grow since then. However, we were not prepared for our last visit there, the day after Queen Elizabeth died.
My friend, Chris, and I were walking towards the Cathedral after a brief pitstop in Chococo’s to get a hot chocolate, and as we reached the graveyard, I became aware of a huge energy surrounding the building. It felt elemental but as we got nearer; I saw that the green dragon energy that we had planted there had now grown to encompass the entire cathedral. The physical Cathedral was now inside the dragon energy, and not vice versa.
We went into the building and walked along the central aisle to the centre point (there are three points along the aisle: the Head, Heart and Hara centre). As we proceeded, we were aware that we were inside the dragon’s body. I was instructed to stand on the Hara point, which in the physical body, equates to the centre behind your navel. This point connected to the Hara line of the Dragon’s body too. I felt the connection, but nothing else happened, so we pottered off to the little prayer chapel. I wanted to go to the main altar but the back of the cathedral was cut off to visitors.
After pottering around, I felt drawn back to the dragon-centre point again and this time, as I took my place there, a green column from the dragon’s Hara-centre, descended around me. When it reached the floor, it filled up with the green of the dragon’s energy, like green fluid, filling all the way up. When it was filled, ivy began to grow at my feet, spiralling upward, around the green column until it reached the point where the column emerged from the dragon’s body. There was a feeling of something being reciprocated here, but I didn’t understand what that might be. It could be because we had anchored this dragon here in the first place and I was being given this gift of ‘greenness’ in return. I don’t know. There are many gifts we are given in return for our service and this was one of them, and although I do not know what it is for, I’m sure I’ll soon find out.
So, if you are visiting Winchester Cathedral, tune into the green dragon there, and see what happens. You might be surprised, and she might have something for you to do too.
