Good Morning, God!
Over the last few weeks I’ve become much more aware of my Inner Dragon. I’ve known, God, how all we humans have a part of our brain that’s called The Reptilian Brain. But, it was a shock to realize that part of my brain was no sluggish lizard — it was a Dragon!
I had awaken with a dream in which I was threatening a person in my dream with horrible consequences if he didn’t do what I wanted. Yikes! It has been a long time since I have had such focused anger. It was scary! And it gave me a whole new appreciation of the Hard Work of Forgiving!
Just the day before I had read about our need to “wipe the slate clean” and forgive. After my dream it was clear to me that forgiving this person was gong to be much more like persuading a Dragon to hand over a Gold Ring. I know the gold ring is poison . . . my dragon thinks it precious.
Clearly, God, I need Your Help in taming — or at least training — my dragon. You left it in us for reasons . . . we need its Life Force . . . its Energy . . .
But I am becoming aware that Dragons HARM one another. Actually, God, the word Traumatize is surfacing. And Big Wounds — traumas — need healing.
Perhaps, when we have such a hard time getting ourselves — our dragons — to forgive — perhaps we should ask if they need healing? Wounds, like pearls, are richly layered. Hurts, traumas, hate, anger — pile up — creating complex lumps, like shrapnel, stuck in our Emotional Bodies.
You, God, are our Creator! Please help us come to You for healing . . . for full Health!
