Healing the Wounded Dragon

Accessing the purity of primal power.

I’d say we’re all pretty conscious of the need for healing of the divine feminine. It’s an energy that has been subjugated and mis-treated within society for eons. However, little seems to be said also about the need to heal the divine masculine. And by that, I don’t mean to neuter him! I mean to go deeply into the primal male power, to explore the distortions of it, peel them away, to harness the sleeping dragon and unleash it within our lives. It’s an awesome energy that’s intimately entwined within the DNA of everyone of us. And I’m not just speaking for the guys here, I mean unleashing the primal woman too. When correctly harnessed, the coiled potential resting deep within, can help blaze the trail of our evolutionary journey.

A furnace in the danten
In my earlier years, I’ve had no shortage of primal power. It was always there for me like a furnace constantly burning within my danten (pelvic region). It helped me greatly in sport, the martial arts, in the military and as a business entrepreneur. It’s that ancient energy that won’t lay down and die. It’s the directing ‘gut instinct’ that wants to squeeze every last drop from this magical brew called life.

It is totally fearless. Rather it seeks out fear. It wants to expand boundaries and limitation, to break down barriers, to eat and drink-in the fullness of life. It’s appetite for living is voracious – indeed the coiled dragon within can be one of our greatest allies on the spiritual journey.

    Why then have we suppressed him so much? How have we done that? And most importantly, how can we heal him again for maximum evolutionary transformation?

The abuse of power
When I speak of ‘the dragon’, what I’m speaking of is an ancient primal power that is intrinsic in every one of us yet stimulated only to various degrees of awakeness. It is the reptilian aspect of our nature encoded into our DNA. It’s seat of power is the colon, but it has a direct connection into the core of our brain and particularly the pituitary gland. When the dragon is fully breathing, we feel enlivened, emboldened, thirsty for life experience.

It’s been a much misused and abused energy throughout mankind’s history – indeed even before that. It’s heritage dates back right to the dinosaurs when even then, it’s energy got out of hand with the raw destructive power of the raptors. In my knowing, that’s why Gaia’s saddened outcry wiped them from the face of the earth in a blaze of falling comets. It’s a karmic pain she carries even today, and one which she must soon heal.

We still retain that energy in the field all around us. I believe it’s right to say, it is the core frequency of the field all around us, but one that’s been heavily abused and distorted. One that’s been used to subjugate and control, to pervert and wind-up. It’s created the ‘matrix’ of conditioned fearful and exploitative behaviours. In my knowing, it’s that unleashed, distorted and unrestrained brutality that’s caused the recent football violence in Egypt that left over seventy people dead.

Positively propelling us into the higher paradigm
No wonder awakening people have wanted to ‘dissolve’ this very primal aspect of our beingness. The trouble is, you can’t dissolve it! You can only suppress and deny it. That’s what’s been done in society too. Junk food, alcohol, soft drugs, distraction and densitisation has for many put the dragon into a docile slumber.

    But why would we want to wake the dragon up?

Because it has amazing powers that can be of great benevolence. It’s a core aspect of us, purposefully designed to blaze a trail through resistant density in the physical plane. And in any case, the field is now transmuting, the dragon in Gaia is reawakening and so will ours too. It cannot be stopped, only harnessed, healed and purified.

When our primal nature is fully purified and activated, it can guide us intuitively to good health and vitality. It can communicate telepathically and it can store and build energy to propel us into astral travel. It’s a big part of our full awakening as human beings aligned with Gaia on this planet. As I said earlier, it’s a part of her karmic healing just as it is ours. I strongly believe that it is this energy which can help propel her and us into the higher paradigm.

Healing the dragon
Of course these powers have been much distorted within society, for example during wars and generally in times of control and manipulation. They’ve been used to dominate the divine feminine within us, which we must not let happen again. It doesn’t need to be that way. We can heal the dragon and unleash it. Denial of it simply leads to an unfulfilled life, frustration, anger and a limiting cap on our evolutionary growth.

    So how can we heal the Dragon?

We have to get into our earthy primal nature, right into the density of physicality. And there’s three key areas to explore: our dietary habits, physical exercise and primal sexual expression. The invitation is to look deeply into these fundamental aspects of human beingness, to honour and express the truth of what’s activating for us…. but then also to carefully watch where the dragon becomes distorted, to peel away those distortion and unleash the authentic action at their core.

Let’s look briefly at these three areas…

  • Diet: There can be few areas in human life where there’s so much confusion about what is right and healthy to eat. I’d say a key previously unconsidered factor, will be the degree of dragon activation. For me, as he awakens, I’m rediscovering the need for slightly denser protein based foods, like beans, lentils, and even animal protein such as eggs (for me, meat is still very much off the menu, but it will be for each of us to figure out where it feels right to draw the line). The amazing thing about a truly revitalised colon, is that it can pick the right foods for us – we just have to heal it and get the mind out of the way (Jasmin green tea seems to be great for helping heal the colon).
  • Physical exercise: I’ve observed robust exercise is essential for realigning the reptile DNA. We have to unleash the reins and allow the ‘horse to gallop’, for only then can it become healthy and strong. But neither do we need to over condition it – vigorous walking in the countryside, with pumping heart and lungs might be sufficient for some. And remember sensitivity needs to be entwined within the musculature, so free flowing yoga might be right for your personal alignment (or indeed Openhand’s soulmotion). And when we truly want to ‘blow off some steam’, maybe even kick boxing or other martial-art-type expression. When we dispense with pent up anger or rage without projecting at others, then the distortions will fall away and the primal power can be positively harnessed in a purely benevolent way.
  • Primal sexual expression: clearly this is yet another area within society that’s been much maligned. It’s created so much unwelcome limitation and taboo for people. I’ve experienced that between two loving partners of benevolent intent, love making can be passionate and primal yet without distortion. The practice of tantra can heal the dragon, integrating sensitivity with strength, building energy without frustration, pushing the boundaries without breaking them. Tantra can also work even when not in relationship – we simply need to explore personal sensuality and active ‘dream-like’ imagination.

Getting to know your dragon
I’m getting to know my inner dragon really well now. It’s a primal power that’s been with me all of my pre-awakened life. It’s something I subconsciously distanced myself from following my awakening. It seemed that such passionate behaviour was somehow inappropriate. I’m pleased to say I don’t feel that way any more!

As the energetic frequencies within the field change in alignment with our Ascension, it’s an energy which we can all make great use of for transforming the distorted density all around us. Yes, as the matrix unravels, it’s sure to be used malevolently by those who have not yet mastered or integrated its purity. But that’s no reason to fear or deny it within ourselves. All the more reason to explore, heal and harness it for counterbalancing benevolent action.

As our ancient DNA frequencies now activate, I’ve found my dragon is beginning to open up new creative pathways for me in life. I call him “Douglas”, he’s fiery but compassionate.
What’s yours like?

    About the Author

    At the age of 40 Chris was involved in a life threatening car crash in which he thought he would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.

    He found himself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. He began to remember his true reason for being here.

    He explains…

    “During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.”

    “This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright”.

    Prior to the crash, Chris had a rich an varied professional career in industry, in teaching, as an Officer in the Army and finally as a web development entrepreneur before being initiated on his spiritual path. With a Masters Degree in Natural Sciences from Oxford University, participants in the work are finding his integration of grounded scientific understanding and profound spiritual realisation deeply engaging and transformative.

    Hey Chris,
    I love the article. I find myself very much in agreement. One question…what is the tangible benefit of living a multi-dimensional existence. Fostering multi-dimensional existence seems to be a central gift of mine to share with the world. I’m still grappling with what the inherent value of it is and why people might want that. I appreciate any insight you might offer . Thanks

  • Chris

    Hey there. To me multi-dimensional existence is an entirely natural human state of being. It’s just that for various reasons many have forgotten that or are currently shielded from it. I’d say it’s a divine gift for all.
    I also observe that when we are personally ready, nothing can stop our gifts from being shared. It’s inevitable. So if there is something currently in the way, then I’d say seek to understand what that is and focus first on removing those veils. Then your light will shine stronger and those that are meant to be helped will be drawn to you.
    Best wishes
    Chris

  • Dear Chris,

    Loved this article. It summed up so many things I have been awakening to. In particular last year I found myself engaging in a random and very passionate one night stand, with someone who I picked up at a dance class.

    I did a shamanic journey about the encounter and received a combination of images which were firstly dinosaurs and lots of meteorites…! And then images of male and female tigers bonding and playing together.

    Your article helped clarify that imagery – and the realisation that since then, I have been learning to balance and express more harmoniously both the reptilian primal and mammalian bonding instincts.

    I have found tantra really built my skillfulness in bonding sexuality but it has been another journey altogether to consciously embrace and express the dragon.

    Namaste x

    Good article….I was lead to it because the love of my life loved dragons and they keep showing up I assume as a sign from him. He took his life 4 months ago and I am trying to decide what to do about mine now and have been unplugged from the real me for along time now yet have been slowly awakening and wonder if we are facing a good outcome with things to come. I am now surrounded completely by all friends who have special abilities/gifts and can feel things shifting…

    smile. 4 years in now. finding that the initial activation was intense (lightening path) feeling as though it retreated for some time however now i feel it redirected to a more mild avenue where dietary practices are at the forefront and the rest was pushed off to the wayside. Vague and yet ever present in moments of complete lucidity. At some point I imagine it will all come together and integrate. This piece resonates. Thank you for sharing

  • El

    … nearly forgot the reason i wished to comment in the first place (what drew me to this piece). A few weeks ago (having thought the process was a dull roar long ago) I had a dream which made little sense to me. In it my guide was standing alongside me (as he often does) my palm extended. We were in awe of this hand sized, Red Dragon … until I woke. 🙂

    David Brown who channels Kryon and heals “the inner parents”, sees the male or the father figure as prime importance in healing the family, as the father holds the security of the family in his being. Once the father image is healed as protector and holder of security then the mother (feminine) is able to freely express and nurture the family. Many wars in Europe and loss of fathers have taken a toll on the divine father aspect. Much difficulty for single parent families without fathers to show male children, “their right of passage”.
