WHAT ARE DRAGONS?
Dragons are survival mechanisms or archetypes that manage your nervous system,
making you feel safe and secure in the world. But prevent you from feeling free to play!
These Dragons came online
in your system when you were a child to keep you safe.
The reptilian brain manages our nervous system.
Dragons are very ancient reptiles.
They are patterns that have been in your ancestry for ages.
When unconscious of these dragons, they run the show in the background of your life.
They have the intention to “protect” your inner child (Alice) in the short term, but their patterns are unsustainable and slowly destroy your dreams over time.
These Dragons have their way to give away your power, that creates creative blocks and over time, can result into bankruptcy of energy, being tired all the time and possible illnesses.
You might be already familiar with these Dragons, but they go deep. They are Dragons for a reason. They are ancient reptiles and have been wired our neuropathways for ages.

MEET THE DRAGONS:
Perfectionella is the dragon who always wants everything to be perfect.
She wants to protect the inner child by being perfect, so it doesn’t get shamed, ridiculed or blamed for doing something wrong.
If you’re perfect then nothing goes wrong and life feels safe.
But this goes at the cost of yourself and your surroundings.
Perfectionella is over critical about you and the people around you.
She is critical about others to feel better about herself.
She wants to look perfect. Be Spiritually Perfectly aligned. Think perfectly. Act perfectly.
Perfectionella doesn’t take any steps unless every step is PERFECT!
On the long term she keeps you stuck and lonely because nobody can meet her expectations.
Pleasabella is the dragon of the pleaser.
If everyone is happy, then I am safe.
Often Pleasabella has a lot of empathy and can feel other people’s feelings.
In order to feel good, she needs everyone else to feel good. And the best way to do that, is to make everyone happy by overgiving, pleasing, saying yes when you feel a no.
Pleasabella is scared she will be rejected and abandoned when she doesn’t please others. She’s afraid of conflict and wants “to keep the harmony”
But by doing her tactics of “keeping harmony” on the long term, she creates chaos and pain. and often experience the rejection she tried to prevent any way.
“BRAVE MEN DON’T KILL DRAGONS, BRAVE MEN RIDE THEM”
Just like the Dragon in Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s journey, that needs to be “defeated” to receive the treasure it’s protecting. You don’t defeat the dragon by slaying it, but by hugging it.
Our reptilian brain activates our survival mechanisms when we are in danger. Unresolved trauma can bring our survival mechanism in loops, repeating itself until the emotion is integrated.
When we experience something painful or harmful, we activate survival mechanisms. These create certain beliefs, judgements and triggers. It has a reptilian energy, because it’s connected to the reptilian brain.
“Dragons are very ancient reptilians”
Which means that they are reptiles that have been in you and your ancestors DNA for very long. Beliefs, judgements and triggers have been given from generation to generation to generation to generation.
These beliefs have been wiring a huge ass web in your neuropathways. That creates all the survival patterning,which then creates survival archetypes; Dragons. These aren’t cute little lizards anymore. They evolved into big ass Dragons.
As we become aware of these Dragons within us. It is easy to try to fight with them. Because they often sabotage our desires and needs. The Dragon’s intentions are to keep you save and secure. But from this place, we can’t really grow and evolve. Instead, we devolve.
Their wiring creates horizontal ways of gaining safety and esteem. They get it from other people. Such as needing outside validation, getting your esteem by being perfect, saving people, putting yourself on a pedestal or people pleasing. It can create powerplays, drama and a lot of pain and suffering.
This is the old way of getting our needs met. Getting our esteem, safety and security from others. The new way is the Vertical way of our safety, from source and Gaia. Which is the way of the sovereign archetypes such as the Queen, the King, the Magician and the Magical child.
Dragon training is about loosening the grip of these survival archetypes with these ancient wounds underneath. So that The sovereign Archetypes can rewire the neuropathways. There where Plant medicine show you the doorway. Dragon training will let you enter the room.
It’s about learning how to Tame these Dragons. Because we will never ‘get rid’ of these Dragons, as they are part of our reptilian brain survival system. So we better start learning how to work together with them and stop fighting them. Stop wanting to ‘get rid’ of them. Stop wanting them to be gone. But instead become a Dragonrider and rule your own land with Dragons by your side.
