Some people have been fascinated by the Dragon Sleep meditations in the Dragons and Visions series. So I thought it would be fun to create a series of Dragon Sleep Meditation Guides. These are intended to be fun so have fun with them. However don’t be surprised if your imagined dragon speaks with you or you get inspired with a great idea. All meditation exercises are beneficial, even fun ones like these. So here is the first one.

Meet your Inner Dragon

Find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed.

Sit with a straight back. Don’t slouch or the dragon may mistake you for a snake.

Inhale deeply and slowly.

Exhale all the way.

Repeat two more times.

Imagine you are in an empty space, No objects, no light, no sound.

Take three more deep breaths.

Imagine the empty space becoming brighter, dim at first and gradually increasing in brightness until it is like  daylight.

You still see nothing other than this bright empty space.

Take three more deep breaths.

Relax. Take a deep breath and relax.

The giant red eye grows into a head of a dragon.

What colour is the dragon?

See it grow into a full sized dragon. Now you can see its back and tail, its wings and feet. As it sits watching you it exhales smoke from its nose. It raises one eyebrow and asks you, “What is your name?”

Tell the dragon your name.

Ask the dragon a question about your pursuit in life, whatever that may be. Maybe you want to ask about a financial decision. Dragons love treasure so they are happy to answer any questions about treasure, gold and money.

If you want tell the dragon what you are afraid of today. This dragon is your friend and it will protect you. Fire breathing dragonWatch it stand up and blow smoke off to the side and watch as the smoke takes the form of the thing you are afraid of. Now the dragon takes a deep breath and blows out a powerful blast of fire and annihilates the image of fear.

The dragon sits down again with a big smile. “Now your fear is gone,” it says.

Thank the dragon.

Gradually dim the light of the dragon space. Make it darker and darker and say good-bye to the dragon.

As the space becomes dark take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Then speak these words:

One, two, three, let it be.

And wake up back in your quiet space where you started.
