Wake Up Your Dragon: How To Feel The Inner Power With Meditation

I was first introduced to meditation in the mid-‘70s and have been practicing various forms of meditation since then.

Meditation is the art of stilling the level of mind that includes superficial thinking and chatter (sometimes known as the monkey mind) so that you can drop into a deeper level of inner awareness and relaxation.

In my personal experience, meditation brings you into silence, silence connects you with spirit, and spirit brings peace, a feeling of oneness and a deep connection with all that is.

One dictionary definition of meditation is to think deeply on a subject, but I prefer to use the word contemplation to describe a practice that involves thinking. For me meditation is the art of “no-thinking.

” In order to understand “no-thinking” it’s important to become consciously aware of the constant “train of thoughts” that tends to pull our consciousness this way and that way on a moment-to-moment basis. The thought process will often go something this: “ Wish I didn’t have to work this morning.

Where are my gray slacks? I d those pants Sue was wearing yesterday. What was that movie she told me about? The popcorn at the theater was so salty last time. I’m hungry. I really need to go to the dentist again. He’s so expensive. I wish I had a better job. And on and on and on.

” These types of “thought trains” consume huge amounts of our energy on a daily basis. But with practice, you can learn to distinguish your inner field of awareness from the thoughts that are moving through that field and begin to choose where you want to focus your attention and your power in any given moment.

You can choose silence, peace and relaxation rather than worry, anger, frustration, resentment or even mindless chatter. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you for the choice.

There are many forms of meditation that involve moving, shaking, catharsis, dancing, chanting and other ways to disengage yourself from the mental world of the “thought train” by focusing your attention in either the physical, or emotional worlds.

These are also helpful practices and I address some of them elsewhere, but this particular exercise is designed to help you develop your ability to become consciously aware of your thoughts while expanding the part of you that can see your thoughts, but is separate from them.

This type of meditation leads to what is called “the witness” or “witness consciousness” in a variety of spiritual teachings.

You can practice meditating anytime, but it’s said to be easiest first thing in the morning or right before you go to bed at night.

If you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, meditation can be a restful way to spend some time before going back to sleep.

The spiritual realms are said to be easier to access during the wee hours, and I find the hours between 3 AM and 5 AM to be a wonderful time to meditate. But of course the most important thing is to choose a time that works for you and to practice regularly.

It’s helpful to read the instructions all the way through at least once before trying them.

Eventually your body will know intuitively when fifteen minutes is up, but in the beginning it’s useful to set a timer so that your mind can relax about the passage of time. Longer meditations are fine, but fifteen minutes should be the minimum.

From this point, for the next fifteen minutes your job is to simply be awake and alert to what is happening inside of you. You are to watch and notice without judgment, expectation or condemnation. Just watch. There are many ways to do this. I’m going to offer a few possibilities and you can choose the ones that you find easiest and most beneficial.

“I have spent ALL DAY TODAY with your material. 

Recently, I had asked the Universe (many times) to help me reconnect with the innocence and imagination that came so easily to me when I was a child.  Our “world” can suck the life (and beautiful imagination) right a person!

I think I was growing heartsick as I longed for all that awe and wonder and joy that through my 83+ years had cumulatively escaped me.  I knew what I was missing, but I didn’t know how to retrieve it.

I have felt this loss of innocence and imagination keenly.  

Well…….the Universe DELIVERED!  It sent me YOU….and all your incredible meditations.  I don’t feel that loss any more.  I am alive and well and filled to overflowing.  You brought me NEW LIFE.

I love your meditations…..the wonderful imagination, the concepts behind the visuals. your voice, so soft, clear, and soothing.  I love the music.  And I love the time and space of silence that you offer.  I have listened to many guided

meditations in my day….and none….repeat NONE… offer the combination of wonderful qualities that yours offer.    I feel stability, peace, and expansion as I listen, and I’m given plenty of time to explore my own inner space without feeling rushed, intruded upon, or guided where I don’t particularly want to go.  I eagerly look forward to listening to every one.

“Be still and know yourself as the Truth you have been searching for. Be still and let the inherent joy of that Truth capture your drama and destroy it in the bliss of consummation. Be still and let your life be lived by the purpose you were made for. Be still and receive the inherent truth of your heart.” ~Gangaji

“Don't hate the arising of thoughts or stop the thoughts that do arise. Simply realize that our original mind, right from the start, is beyond thought, so that no matter what, you never get involved with thoughts. Illuminate original mind, and no other understanding is necessary.” ~Zen Master Bankei Yotaku

“Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho

Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have.

We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are or what we’re doing.

The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves. ~Pema Chodron

“When your attention moves into the Now, there is an alertness. It is as if you were waking up from a dream, the dream of thought, the dream of past and future. Such clarity, such simplicity. No room for problem-making. Just this moment as it is.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“Meditation will not carry you to another world, but it will reveal the most profound and awesome dimensions of the world in which you already live. Calmly contemplating these dimensions and bringing them into the service of compassion and kindness is the right way to make rapid gains in meditation as well as in life.” ~Zen Master Hsing Yun

“Quiet the mind,

and the soul will speak.”

~Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

“All that is necessary to awaken to yourself as the radiant emptiness of spirit is to stop seeking something more or better or different, and to turn your attention inward to the awake silence that you are.” ~Adyashanti

“Clarity is part of the mind from the beginning, a natural awareness. Just acknowledge it, simply notice that you’re aware.

At any given moment, you can choose to follow the chain of thoughts, emotions, and sensations that reinforce a perception of yourself as vulnerable and limited or to remember that your true nature is pure, unconditioned, and incapable of being harmed.” ~Mingyur Rinpoche

“Meditation is meeting eternity in the present moment. It is resolving every problem as it comes. It is resolving every tension as it creeps in. It is facing the challenges of life in a non-fearful way.” ~Vimala Thakar

 Credit: Shambhala Media

“Meditation should not be regarded as a learning process. It should be regarded as an experiencing process. You should not try to learn from meditation but try to feel it.

Meditation is an act of nonduality. The technique you are using should not be separate from you; it is you, you are the technique. Meditator and meditation are one. There is no relationship involved.

” ~Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

“When we raise ourselves through meditation to what unites us with the spirit, we quicken something within us that is eternal and unlimited by birth and death. Once we have experienced this eternal part in us, we can no longer doubt its existence. Meditation is thus the way to knowing and beholding the eternal, indestructible, essential centre of our being.” ~Rudolf Steiner

“Devote the mind to confusion and we know only too well, if we're honest, that it will become a dark master of confusion, adept in its addictions, subtle and perversely supple in its slaveries.

Devote it in meditation to the task of freeing itself from illusion, and we will find that, with time, patience, discipline, and the right training, our mind will begin to unknot itself and know its essential bliss and clarity.” ~Sogyal Rinphoche

“At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I've made mountains molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.” ~Ringo Starr

“Mindfulness helps us get better at seeing the difference between what’s happening and the stories we tell ourselves about what’s happening, stories that get in the way of direct experience. Often such stories treat a fleeting state of mind as if it were our entire and permanent self.” ~Sharon Salzberg

“Meditation is another dimension of natural beauty. People talk about appreciating natural beauty—climbing mountains, seeing giraffes and tigers in Africa, and all sorts of things.

But nobody seems to appreciate this kind of natural beauty of ourselves. This is actually far more beautiful than flora and fauna, far more fantastic, far more painful and colorful and delightful.

And transparent,

And you will never be bound.

A single disturbed thought

Creates ten thousand

The Dragon Spirit Animal

Wake Up Your Dragon: How To Feel The Inner Power With Meditation

Last Updated on March 29th, 2019

Are you interested in the Dragon Spirit Animal? Then this guide is for you!

Of all spirit animals, the dragon totem is one of the most powerful. The dragon spirit animal has a wide range of emotions and qualities.

These have many different meanings in your life if this spirit guide is your totem. The most common meanings have to do with fortitude, courage, and strength.

The dragon totem brings magic and balance into your life.

When the dragon spirit guide comes into your life, it wants you to get in touch with your psychic nature. The dragon asks you to view the world through the window of mystery and wonder.

What is the Meaning of the Dragon Spirit Animal?

The dragon presence in your life calls your attention to your primordial strength. This spirit guide is the master of the Earth, Air, and Fire.

As such, the dragon is a powerful ally to have by your side. It makes your daily life amazing. The dragon spirit empowers you with potent and restorative characteristics.

When the dragon spirit guide arrives into your life, you can get in touch with it by looking into your inner being. There you’ll find the spiritual dragon hidden deep within your souls.

Once you unearth it, the dragon enables you to find peace. You may have to do some spiritual preparations to achieve this goal.

The purpose of the dragon spirit guide in your life is clear-cut. It stands for the transformation that your life has to take.

This transformation relates to emotional and physical change. Also, it can be as simple as changing jobs or shifting houses.

This change can be so drastic that it affects the core of your existence. In this case, it’s important that you summon the dragon within you to guide you in your tough times.

The dragon spirit totem enters your life to enable you to reach your true potential. It provides you with the metaphysical knowledge and insight you need to be pure.

The dragon presence in your life means richness. This could mean an increase in material wealth or richness in happiness. The dragon spirit guide brings true wealth into your life.

When the dragon spirit guide comes into your life, there are certain signs that will manifest themselves. These signs are very similar to the angel signs.

These signs guide you towards the path of light.

So, how do you know that the dragon has come calling? You may keep hearing the dragon noise in your life. Also, you could have recurrent dreams featuring the dragon spirit guide. Alternatively, you may have very vivid visions of the dragon.

What is the Symbolism of the Dragon Spirit Animal?

The dragon presence in your life is not just the dragon creature itself. Rather, it is the title of your abilities.

You are referred to as a Dragon when you have the power to overcome your challenges with ease.

When this spirit guide camps in your life, you are able to play a variety of roles. At times, you do things that some people find intimidating and scary.

At other times, people find your actions to be acts of kindness and assistance.

The dragon spirit guide is a symbol of power. When the dragon comes into your life in the form of a cloud, it means that you get the power to drive all your agendas.

This power manifests itself in a way that you don’t need to be reminded of it. In fact, some people may perceive that you have too much power.

Now, it’s important that you know your limits. Otherwise, you may exhaust your energy reserves trying to meet the demands of the people around you.

If you need to find out how much power you actually possess, just try to reflect on yourself. Deep down your soul lays the answer.

It is possible for angels to visit you in the form of dragons. Indeed, angels and dragons become one when they are spirit animals.

Having a dragon spirit guide is quite helpful. They are strong allies that you can depend on in times of need.

However, they are something that you should be wary of. Many tales abound of how the dragon represents the devil.

This symbol of the dragon may not be all positive in your life.

When you perceive that the dragon spirit in your life represents the devil, take it as a warning. Actually, the dragon spirit guide may deliberately come into your life in this form to keep you on your toes.

It could be that your recent actions have been immoral. In this case, the dragon spirit animal will appear in your life in the form of the devil.

The spirit guide appears in this way to advise you to change your ways. You may see the need to call on archangels to help you with this concern.

Now, you need to understand that angels and the dragon play the same noble role. The devil doesn’t, even when he appears as a dragon. As such, you can confide in the angels to help you discover your true dragon strength.

This will help you should the devil manifest himself in your life. All the same, don’t be overly concerned by his presence. With time, your dragon spirit guide will help you to kick him out.

Importance of the Dragon Spirit Totem

When the dragon spirit guide comes into your life, it calls upon you to take up the practice of meditation.

The dragon spirit animal asks you to get images that resonate well with your life. When the time is right for you to talk to your spirit guide, collect the images that contemplate well with your totem.

Also, you can talk to your spirit guide by drawing. As you undertake this process, the spirit guide will reveal himself to you.

Many people have seen the benefits of starting a journal. In such a journal, you collect your feelings, images, information, and the pictures related to your spirit guide.

Create a bond with your spirit guide by reading more on it. However, do not limit yourself to just what is written.

When to Call on the Dragon Spirit Animal

The dragon spirit guide helps you to reconcile your past experiences with the present one. It teaches you the ways to benefit from the experiences of your elders.

When you hear the stories of your elders, you acquire much wisdom.

Call on the dragon spirit guide when you find yourself in any of the following circumstances:

  • You have a desire for wisdom
  • You need to create a rapport with your family members
  • You want to remove evil influences from your life
  • You desire to protect what you’ve built
  • You need to exude the great power within you
  • You need to acquire and manage wealth

Does the Dragon Appear in Your Dreams?

The dragon spirit guide will come into your dreams to provide you with solutions to the challenges in your life.

When you see the dragon in your dreams, you are being reminded to express your strong and fiery personality.

The dragon wants you to unleash the passion that you have within you. At the same time, your spirit guide wants you to use this passion in moderation.

Doing things in a rush could lead you into trouble. As such, the dragon dream means that you need to practice self-control.

If the dragon in your dream is breathing fire, it means that you need to govern your anger. Displaying anger may enable you t get things your way.

However, it takes its toll on your physical and emotional strength.

The dragon spirit guide is a symbol of treasure and wealth. When he comes into your dreams, it’s telling you that you can use your strength to accumulate wealth.

Final Thoughts…

People from cultures all over the world view the dragon as a mysterious yet very powerful creature. When you allow him into your life, you get the inspiration to do great things in life.

The dragon spirit guide gives you the power to express yourself more holistically.

How to connect with your personal Dragon guide

Wake Up Your Dragon: How To Feel The Inner Power With Meditation

Beautiful dragon image by Jocarra from Deviant Art

Dragons….. that’s just folk tales and myths right?

Maybe so, but where do those myths come from? How do they start?

I would invite you to open your minds and your hearts, and to journey now into your own subconscious. Your inner world. A place of creativity, of endless and limitless possibility. The depths of your soul, where your heart whispers gently to you in your own internal language. In this world, can the myth become the reality? Or was it always your true reality just waiting to be discovered?

Some people believe that spirit guides are aspects of ourselves, created from our own individual essence, experiences, characters, and personality traits. That communication with these guides, is a way of communicating with those fragmented aspects of our subconscious on a deep level. A way to bring a unity and understanding to these deeper parts of us.

I lean slightly more to the other end of the spectrum. It is my belief that these guides are energies which exist independently as something external to us, but at the same time are deeply connected to us. That we draw these helpers and allies to us by our thoughts, actions, emotions, and the particular life paths we have chosen.

Our one main guide is with us from birth, through many life times, and sometimes knows us deeper than we are aware of ourselves. This guide helps us write our soul contract before we are incarnated, in which is contained the experiences we choose to go through to help us balance our individual lessons.

As we go along our paths and make our choices through the gift of freewill given to us on Earth, multiple guides join us to support us along our way.

I am open to be challenged, and even be proven wrong on this matter, flexibility and open-mindedness, is the foundation of all healthy beliefs!

No matter what your personal view, there is no doubt that if you have experienced connection with a spirit guide, this becomes a part of your unique reality, and your personal story. These interactions shape you, and aid you, sometimes in the most wonderful and unexpected ways.

What are Dragons, and how are they helpful as spirit allies?

Dragons are elemental beings, meaning that they are woven deeply into the elements of the Earth, and the fabric of the Earth herself. Fire, Water, Earth, Air, and Ether. When connecting with them, you can sometimes get a sense of the element attached to them.

Ether tend to be very cosmic, my personal guide is what I call a cosmic dragon. Your personal guide will suit your personal energy and needs for growth and development at this time, and you may find more dragons pop up for you as you go along your path and connect deeper.

Look for synchronicities and imagery in your daily life, dreams, visions, and the whispers of your heart.

Dragons are powerful and magnificent allies to have on your spiritual path. They are guardians and protectors, who teach us to step into our power in a positive and loving way. We should not be afraid of our own power.

Real balanced power is always tempered with heart-centred compassion. Just as the strong ruthless Emperor in Tarot must be guided in his decisions by the compassion and wisdom of the Hierophant at his side.

Stand firmly and confidently in your power, but also stand in your heart in the centre of love, and the gathered wisdom of who you are. 

“Breathe in the energy, then breathe it out into the Earth, this will be your gift to the world.”

During an evening of shamanic journeying and healing held by my teacher Anthea Durand, I was first introduced to dragon energy. A shamanic journey is a form of deep meditation or visualisation, with a very specific intention in place. This is the message that was given to me in that first encounter with my dragon guide. 

My intention for this particular shamanic journey was to connect to a star in the orion star system, and find out what guidance or gifts it had for me. The gift it had was connection with my amazing dragon guide!

I saw space and stars, and a beautiful purple dragon wrapped around a huge sword. She uncoiled herself and handed me the sword. Not knowing what to do, I asked her, and she laid it over me, and told me; “Breathe it in, then breathe it out into the Earth, this will be your gift to the world”

I did exactly this, and felt a surge of powerful healing energy rippling out from me deep into the Earth. My teacher excitedly told me I had experienced an alchemical initiation.

I didn’t intend to connect with my dragon, my dragon had decided it was time, and she initiated that in a clear way! It is one of the most vivid visuals I have experienced, a movie screen in front of my eyes.

Dragons have been popping into my dreams, , daily life, and visions, and healing sessions with my clients in a most profound and magical way ever since.

Working with dragons is not for the faint-hearted! They can be very direct, and offer deep transformational guidance and healing for those who connect with them. I have had some of my most profound experiences working with them.

This includes some mind-bending visual images of travelling through worm holes and galaxies in space, jumping between perceived realities, and bending space and time itself! These experiences happen to me in my dreams, and deeper meditations.

On occasion, I will get a sense of my dragon guide popping up over my shoulder in my waking life, and as I tune in, I get visuals and messages downloaded to me which I need to know about now or in the future.

I have even experienced this on the tube, and as a result I always carry a notebook to jot down the thoughts and images given. It is always something incredible!

Here is a piece of creative writing I did immediately after meditating and connecting with my dragon guide. It isn’t quite a channelled message.

My personal experience with dragons is that they communicate in a way that is quite abstract! Either way, this message really sang to my soul, and contains energy and deep messages bestowed on me in that moment from my dragon guide.

I felt it vibrate all through me, and I felt the wonder of it, it was an amazing experience. I hope you feel the energy and power from it too. Indeed, my dragon guide was the inspiration behind my business name Cast Brighter Shadows. 

Your power lies not in others, that is illusion. Others have only as much power as we give them.Your power lies not externally in objects and possessions. These things serve you for a time, but that power is temporary and once expired, that which once served you can become your downfall.Your power lies not in competition and division.

These self-serving expressions have a life-span in this world.Unity, compassion, kindness on all levels, limitless love. Yes. You are those. We are that, we are all. Tempered into gold.Service to the whole, not at detriment to the self, but through service to the self.

Heal yourself to heal the world, and raise others up with you in unity, not one excluded.You are not your past, or your future. You are a multidimensional being. You are perfect expressions of the divine in all its aspects. You are every experience you have ever had, and will ever have expressed simultaneously through space and time.

You have the power to transform, to expand, to create, to empathise, and to love.Your power resides within you. A hidden treasure trove of molten gold waiting to be uncovered.You are radiant, you are magnificent. You are a powerful creative being.In this world of illusions, there is nothing to fear.Every day is a choice.

Choose to live every day through the eyes of love.Don’t just breathe love, be love. In all things. Despite all things.Step into your power.See your perfect self in front of you now. See yourself healed, supported, magnificent.Step into this vision.Feel its perfection. Feel energised.You are already this perfect balanced being.

Everything is as it should be.

Rise above the noise, fly high, and let the shadows fall behind.

This is such an important message to the world as a whole. The balance of power and exploration of power happening on a global scale, can be explored internally and independently of those who would seek to take it away.

Perhaps you will resonate with this message, perhaps in a different way to myself, or maybe not at all! This message is very relevant to my personal values and challenges, and your own messages from your guides will be equally unique to you.

I believe that everyone should create and experience their own reality in a way that feels right for them.

Here is a visualisation to help you to connect to your dragon guide:

First, set a sacred space however feels right for you.

Be as creative as you feel. You can use candles, intense, crystals, ornaments, soft music or nature sounds. Anything that feels right for you and your space.

You may to set an intention for your practice. This can be anything from “I would guidance on X from my dragon guide” to “I would to connect with and meet my dragon guide”

It is perfectly fine to just want to sit in the energy of any of your guides. This is how we get to know them, and recognise their energy signatures and messages in our daily lives. It is incredibly healing to just sit with your guide, so don’t pressure yourself and move at your own pace.

  • Breathe deep, relax, close your eyes.In your own time, transport yourself to your own personal cave.This can be any cave you . A crystal cave, sandstone beneath the earth, even on another planet! Follow your heart.
  • See and feel your cave, and feel safe and secure here. You are protected, you are empowered, filled with love. Look around your cave using your imagination. It is exactly as you want it, a reflection of your own beautiful energy.
  • Connect to your heart centre, this place of pure love. From that centre of love, ask your dragon guide to join you here in your space.
  • See, feel, or sense your guide with you. If you are less visual, you may just have a strong sense or feeling of your guide. This is perfect, everyones senses work differently. Whatever you get, this is right for you.
  • Spend some time just sitting and experiencing the energy of your beautiful ally.
  • If you feel guided, maybe you can ask a question. Their name, how will you work together for humanity? Maybe you ask for a gift to help you, or for some healing? For protection? Maybe you are just happy too see/feel and greet your dragon and know their energy. Enjoy your experience in your own way.
  • When it feels right for you and you have done all you intend, thank your guide for their help. Radiate gratitude and love between you, and say a fond farewell until next time.
  • Travel back safely from your cave, the same way you came there. See it gradually fade as you return to the physical empowered and with love to share.
  • Breathe deep into your body, grow strong tree roots into the ground, and ground and anchor this new energy into your system, and the very Earth herself who supports your healing and growth.
  • Bring yourself gently back to the room with deep cleansing breaths.

You can come to your personal cave any time you would to connect with your dragon. Maybe they will even pop up during the day, or in your dreams!

Dragons have literally taken me through time and space, transforming and healing me in the most wonderful ways. When working with dragons you are sure of an exciting adventure.

Please do get in touch with me to share your own dragon stories! I would love to hear them.

With love to you all. May you find the magic in your hearts.

Spiritual Dragons !?

Wake Up Your Dragon: How To Feel The Inner Power With Meditation

I've always loved dragons, I've gotten numerous requests to write about dragons, and personally I have a dragon as one of my power animals.

But dragons and angels? It never really seemed to be a good fit to write about dragons here… So I was a bit surprised, but definitely excited today when I asked the angels what they wanted me to write about, and they said “Spiritual Dragons”!

Now that I'm committed to sharing what I know about dragons (because I'm committed to following the guidance of my angels), it totally makes sense. Dragons are not confined to the realms of stories and myth some people may think. Dragons really exist, although they do so in spirit and not in physical form.

Dragons did in ancient times walk upon the Earth (and other planets) as physical beings… But they ascended beyond the need for physical bodies. As a quick side note here, not all of the dragons ascended.

Some did descend into lower vibrational realms of existence (yes there are some planets with even denser vibrations than Earth). But for our purposes, we have no need to connect with the lower vibrational dragons.

And so as loose definition in talking about “Spiritual Dragons”, we're talking about the dragons who through living in light and love, have ascended into the realms of spirit.

The Ascended Dragons are powerful spiritual guides and teachers. I guess you could say that Spiritual Dragons are the ascended masters of the mythical power animals.

There are of course more in this category, the Unicorns for instance… From my experience, ‘Mythical Power Animals' are a group of souls who stand in the light, serve the Divine, and seek to empower humanity in understanding spiritual wisdom, magic, and the infinite possibility available to us now.

Dragons do just this, and they're stepping forward now to help more and more lightworkers to accomplish their purpose.

Dragons are magical spiritual beings, who seek to empower humanity physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

By helping us to see through illusion, the Spiritual Dragons know we are able to return to understanding and embracing our I Am Presence, and experiencing our full connection and oneness with the Divine and with all of existence.

Dragons are effective and powerful spiritual protectors as well as teachers and healers. They are masters of the Earth elements, and through this they can help us to heal ourselves and others, understand Earth magic, remember the ancient mysteries, and to see through the illusions present in our modern lives.

When you think of Dragons do you get the visual of a fire breathing Dragon? The Dragon's fire is a sacred spiritual tool which can serve to transmute negativity, and to ignite the alchemical fire within you. The Dragon's fire has the ability to burn through the veil of illusion, and to transmute fear, and density to reveal the underlying light and truth.

Illusion is often all that blocks us from creating blessings in our individual and collective experience, and with the Spiritual Dragons as allies, we can learn to see past illusion to reclaim our full power as spiritual beings here to create positive change in the physical.

The Spiritual Dragons are happy to help all those who call upon them with pure intentions, and while they're incredibly powerful, they're big on empowering you to take responsibility. They'll also give you little tests to see if you've learned the pre-requisites before helping to open you to a new level.

Do you have a dragon on your spiritual team? If so, they're more than happy to share insight, wisdom and healing with you to empower you to grow spiritually, to make positive choices to improve your life, and to accomplish your purpose as a lightworker and spiritual being here on Earth.

With many blessings of love, light and gratitude,

Melanie
