The Consciousness Has Shifted...The Awakening Has Begun
Dragons are warriors for light (lightworkers). They are a collective of souls who service light. We can infuse our souls into bodies that are not dragon (human for example). In this way we can work for light and efficiently bring about changes. We work in teams, and often share our vessels (bodies) with other members of the kin. The earth's conscious is evolving, there are many of us here working to accomplish that end.
Dragons usually appear to people as themselves. There are those times when they appear as winged humans, or something else, but for the most part you see them as they will appear as they would be in their own physical environment. Most Dragons incarnated here came awake (on at least some level), or to be awakened this life. We've come in enough times to be familiar with this race. Some have a long history incarnating here
Dragon color codex
Red dragon characteristics are desire, passion, fire, rage. These dragons literally eat darkness, and transmute it to light. Intensity is only matched by the amount of fire these dragons wield. To them energy is energy, food, grub.
White dragons maintain the purity of the collective, the grace connection. They often are guardians. These dragons can also be channeled for healing. When they arrive to you it might seem more of a rainbow color for they are the perfect representation of light in prism form.
They are about the consciousness, communication, and mental awareness. They are also intricately linked with what illusion is, how to see through it, and how to create it. There are many illusions on this plane, and the blue dragon can guide one through them. There insight into the etheric plane, and how it moves and works, because it is one of the primary realms for these dragons to do their mental work.
The will is the color orange. These dragons bring in strength, confidence, and bravery. Fire dragons by nature, they move with quickness. They don't inflate ego's, they merely instill confidence. They will often have you in contest of strength of purpose and what it is that you shall will to be.
Brown dragons are about physicality, and all its properties. They are masters of physics, on all realities, from shaping matter (shape shifting), to gravity, and physical form. Sphere is a keyword to understanding the brown dragon.
The green dragon is the planet dragon, or earth dragon. Material in a big sense, however green is the color of life in the big picture. Lessons of "the material", are a big part of the way they teach. I would categorize the earth dragon among these qualities as well.
Yellow dragons get knowledge and information transferred. They are linked to the subconscious (but aren't that), and usually bring in the information that is needed from one side to the other.
The purple dragon, sometimes referred to as "the ancient one", is the embodiment of the highest level of the dragon collective (the wisdom). (The earth dragon also appears to me as purple, however many see green)
The purple dragon is many dragons. Once one reaches a high enough evolution, they become "the collective" (dragons). And all these consciousness’s are compiled into one composite that holds all the wisdom and knowledge of the dragons, and that one is "the purple dragon".
The purple dragon teaches us about the universe, the dragons, and Grace. The purple dragon is the embodiment of the 7th dimensional collective, in other words it is the highest evolved part of the dragon core.
