  3. I had a dream in black and white about a little girl talking to a man by the well she was saying goodbye and when she was about to leave he turned into a Black Chinese dragon

  4. I dreamed of a house that had dragon emblems on it. I refer to it as the dragon house. It was a huge mansion type house with a lake that came right up to the home. I remember standing in front of each dragon design and they were all different. What could that mean?

  5. i was dream a week, in my dream i was in a high position and saw two dragon and fly away from me. Then i saw a group of small dragon in the land, and i saw a rock dragon become a real dragon. Could you translate this dream?


  6. I had a dream about two dragons but they weren’t together. But for some reason I knew where they were and I killed them both. However during the second one it wasn’t it a fight for the dragon, as it was flying out of the lake, I think, I jumped on its it back and started beating it with fist and killed. And leaving my right side of my stomach was totally injured

  7. I have always believed in Dragons. I have had a dream where I could communicate with dragons. And we would talk for infinite amount of time. Then, in the dream I began the transformation of changing from human to dragon. I had blue scales, large wings and could breathe fire. It was so exhilarating. Then I met other dragons and found love. Lastly I saw a silver dragon look me in the eye with a smile. Then I wake up. It has been going on for 10 yrs. What does it mean?

  8. I dreamt that a red dragon, somewhat petite in scale, with long, black wings, was trying to attack me. I was inside a rather old, possibly gothic building, and the dragon would swoop down from the highest corners of the high ceilings. I tried to fend it off, when it landed at my feet, causing me to fall back. I cut the tips of it’s wings somehow, and it retreated. I had noticed during my struggle, that the dragon had very beautiful and detailed designs on it’s body. I managed to escape the building, and the dragon did not seem to follow me.

  9. Yesterday, I had a nightmare. In that nightmare I was on the beach in Slovenia after coming out of an indoor labyrinth full of half-naked women. This is when I saw people filming something in the sea, I turned and saw an immense black dragon rising up from the sea. It was more than a mile wide and it turned towards me, it looked me in the eye but instead of attacking me it flew up into the clouds. I got scared and started running into the city. I was still running in a narrow street with low houses when mile-wide black dragon flew straight over me from behind and – here comes the strangest part – gently touched the crown of my head with the very point of its tail. After that I kept running for a little while and then I woke up, bathing in sweat. This was one of 5 nightmares I’ve ever had.

    Now, what does it mean when a black dragon touches you on your crown chakra?

  10. I recently had a dragon’s dream. There was a news outbreak of a dragon having been hatched. And everyone became aware of this because it was a major news item.
    A friend and I shared a secret though, that there was another similar dragon, that we were taking care of, a mate to the news worthy dragon. There was no fierceness to these dragons, in fact quite the adorable type. We were obliged to keep it’s presence a secret to protect ‘our’ dragon till it would be safe to allow them to be together.
