I came to Woodstock, NY in 1993. The following year I was drumming my shamanic drum, just to go into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. After a while, I started to see, with my inner eye, a figure approaching me from the other side of the valley. He was a native Indian shaman who was wearing a large dragon costume. The costume consisted of a dragon head placed on his own head, from which a dragon coat extended over the sides and back of his body. From the head of the dragon flowed a ragged edge (as certain reptilians have) all the way down to and including the long tail. I felt that he was a local guardian of the place at the other side of the valley, and he was curious about who was drumming in the shamanic way. I never thought much about it, although I found it strange that he had that dragon costume, because I have never read about a shaman (anywhere in the world) who was initiated in the dragon energies or are associated with the dragon entities. Dragons are entities that are usually associated with the high subtle energy currents in and around the earth, and in the cosmos.
The area from which the dragon shaman came is called Overlook Mountain, more specifically, the southern lower slope. A couple of years later I met a man who was living in this area, and for a couple of years had contact with strange entities, who were hanging out in this area at that time. I wrote about this in my article of Strange Encounters of the Unusual Kind.
Several years after that I learned that this area has many megalithic monuments, mainly stacked stone heaps, called cairns and long winding stone walls. Nobody knows where they came from. Because in the United States ancient megaliths do not officially exists, despite their numerous presence, they are ascribed to the early settlers or to the native Indians. In reality, they are connected to a much earlier civilization on this continent. The presence of the stone structures on Overlook Mountain is important, because megaliths were always built on important energy places. The winding stone walls were built to transfer energy from one place to another. You can read more about this in my article of Wéris, An Amazing Megalithic Center In Belgium. Overlook Mountain seem to be a really intriguing place.
One evening, just after dusk, from our house looking over the valley towards Overlook Mountain, I saw a row of large, brilliant colored lights hanging above the tree tops. There were about four or five of them, each one had a different color, white, orange, green, blue, red, which were flashing on and off in succession, very rapidly. It was clear that they were attached to some vehicle hovering above the tree tops, but I could only see the lights because it was already dark. I saw it four about twenty seconds, and they just turned off. My opinion: a flying saucer.
About two weeks later we bumped into our neighbor, and told him our story. He responded by telling us that he had seen the exact same thing moving slowly over and just above our house a couple days before. It shook him up.
Recently I have learned that an archaeological group took interest in the stone megaliths site on Overlook Mountain. One of their members had mapped the cairns, and tried to find a star constellation that would correspond with the placement of the cairns, as is often the case with other megaliths around the world. He found that they corresponded with the constellation of Draco. The Dragon! You can find his article here.
On Overlook Mountain, there is a stone wall that ends in a large rock that has the shape of a head, usually called a snake’s head, but I think it is actually the Dragon’s head.
This winter, also after dark, I saw brilliant white flashes high up on the mountain, almost near the top, a place where there are houses, only rough, steep cliffs. It was also freezing cold, so I don’t think anyone would go up there. And the lights were extremely bright. Every flash was at a different spot, and the time between flashes was only a couple of seconds.
A mysterious place indeed.
