A Solstice meditation, 2012.

Guarding the Book of Karma
Hunches a red Dragon,
Wings partly unfurled as if
Anticipating interlopers
Who would steal my essence away.
Scales glowing with inner fire
That imbues eyes and mind with truth
Of the life few but I can see.
It reaches full power on the midnight hour
At this Winter Solstice time.
Upon my Guardian's back I fly
Through dimensions by science uncharted
To the Druid's retreat where the Prophet's words,
Uttered in a time of madness divine,
Are as yet in granite unset.
And on the summit of His sacred Hill,
Dwarfed by mountains above,
I gaze over wintry landscape below
Where the Dragon Master, withdrawn, observes
From Annwn* beneath the ground.
He's alert and stands in readiness
As Clas Myrddin's* direst need
Draws ever closer with latter-day man's
Greed, selfishness and disregard
For all life but his own.
Now a nearby Hawthorn Tree emits
Golden unearthly light.
Then from within, Emrys steps out.
He increases my auric vibrational speed,
Aligning it with his.
In awe, I'm filled with abject fear
That my brain will overload
If it mediates One from the Fifth Dimension.
But his soothing voice cuts in,
"Just relax and I'll do the rest!"
Before me I see the entire population
All at once - it seems that I
Have acquired spontaneous cosmic vision.
And I'm no longer me - it appears I've become
A channel for His wisdom.
Now, mind-to-mind He's linked us together,
Like a Spiritual Internet.
So I beg of you please open your heart
To the Spirit of Alban Arthuan tonight
And allow his words inside:
"I, Emrys, can see beyond
The mirror of your Soul.
I've been observing your progress through
Your many lives on Earth.
But this present one is all-important,
With free-will you wield great power:
You have the choice to love, not hate,
To calmly accept and tolerate
Those who differ from you...
Choose wisely from your Higher Self -
Only then can your World be saved..."
*Annwn - The Celtic Underworld.
*Clas Myrddin - Merlyn's Enclosure (The British Isles).

  1. Powerful words, Ygraine. I see the dragons often ... hiding in the landscape - they have more difficulty concealing themselves on low-cloudy days.
    However, the scene from my own high perch is of crystal ice and snow and the monochrome of the mountains. Not unlike Merlin's view, but at least I am free.
    The longest night.

    1. ...and freedom is the greatest gift!
      How I'd love to view the land from your vantage point. It sounds truly amazing :)

      Season's Blessings xxx

    1. Many thanks Keith!
      My Solstice celebration on 21st was the best for many years, then I shared in the Christmas one with other members of the family on 25th. So I guess I'm lucky as I get to celebrate twice!!
      Really hope yours has been good too - and here's wishing you a fabulous New Year xx

  7. This has to be one of your best, I'm thinking. Lovely. If it was a novel it would be a page turner. hope your Christmas was as good and that your New Year will be.

      Wishing you and your family a very happy new year.

  8. Ti auguro un 2013 che inizi bene, prosegua come desideri e che termini con grandi soddisfazioni.
    Ti auguro di camminare su una strada chiamata vita, di inciampare in una pozza chiamata fortuna, di cadere in un abisso chiamato felicità.
    Ti auguro un amore sincero accanto a te che sappia comprenderti e guardarti nel cuore con amore
    per ciò che sei.

    1. That is so incredibly beautiful, Giancarlo.
      Thank you from my heart.
