Episode 3, The Dream, from the series about Emily and dragon Alphred by Sona Siepakova.
These short, mysterious stories about the courageous Emily and her wise advisor, the dragon Alphred, aim to inspire you how you might support the regeneration of the Earth’s environment and the improvement of the social and political situation with your creative dreams and focused intention.
The dragon was gone and Emily was already tired from all the heat and walking. So she curled up under a small bush near the path and covered her head by a scarf in order to have a short nap.
In her dream, the green-eyed dragon appeared. Standing in front of her, he was showing her a vast lake full of rainbow colours. Here you can drink and have a bath, Emily! The dragon said in her dream.
But how am I to find the lake, dear dragon? Just imagine it, Emily. That’s enough. Everything what belongs to your world is only a materialised dream. You keep dreaming without knowing about it usually. Look at the water, come and try to swim in it. How are you feeling?
Wet! Emily was laughing. Despite the fact she was just dreaming, she was experiencing the swimming as if it were real. She had run into the water without any hesitation, thirsty and sweaty. What amazing refreshment! And the colours! How come everything around is so rainbow-like?
Emily, this is for you to know this is just a dream. As soon as you wake up, it won’t be long until you find the lake on your own. It is going to look the same, only it will not resemble the rainbow. I wanted to attract you to dreaming, so I have made it a bit more colourful for you to enjoy it. Dreaming is of essential importance. Who prefers not to dream out of fear that looking forward to something might only increase their pain from potential disappointment becomes a victim of external influences. Who dreams consciously, flows through life in a more pleasant manner. At least, they can manifest some help and solutions to their varied troubles. As well as magnetise what brings them joy.
Dear dragon, and how do you know all of that actually? And why have we met? Why are you talking to me? And where did you leave before?
Well, that’s a shower of questions. I am glad I have awoken your curiosity. If you really want to learn more about me and the other things, try to imagine how I am slowly landing by the bush where you have been sleeping. With all your being, perceive how happy you are about our encounter, and how trustingly you are crawling upon my back in the next moment. Where do you think I am going to take you?
That’s fantastic, dragon! Of course to that lake, am I right? And how can I call you?
I’ll reveal my name after you have dreamed me into your life. In other words, as soon as you have magnetised me into your world by your vision.
Thrilled, Emily woke up quickly and squinted around herself. There was nobody anywhere, only the sun, the path, and half-dry meadows. The thicker forests with the promise of some water were still towering far away on the horizon. The lake could be there. However, it is still quite a long journey. She thought sadly.
Yet she tried to believe what the dragon has told her. All in all, she has nothing to lose. Either is she going to reach that place on her own, maybe already tomorrow at dawn, even though thirsty and exhausted, or the dragon will really come to shorten her way. Therefore, sitting comfortably, with eyes closed, she began imagining how she suddenly spotted a dot in the blue sky without any clouds. And the dot became larger. Soon, she was able to recognise her white dragon. While he was landing on the meadow nearby, she was already running to him cheerfully, and thankfully got on his back to let him carry her to water.
At once, a gust of wind struck her. Her green-eyed dragon has landed right in front of her! He had been trying to come down as quietly as possible in order to surprise little Emily. Unfortunately, he was given away by the whirlwind stirred up by his arrival. He gave her a blink, and nodded towards his back as if inviting her to jump on him immediately. Emily hurried to him without any hesitation, openly elated from this new adventure.
My name is Alphred. This means a wise advisor, Emily. He added when she caught hold of his neck.
