When you see The Dragons Duel it means you may experience some inner turmoil resulting in your heart and your head battling it out. There are many ways this can show up in your daily life. For example, you may struggle with doing what you feel is best versus what your mind thinks you should do.
Choices are statements about your priorities and what you value. Each choice you make both opens and closes doors for you. Doors open by providing access to new and specific opportunities. Doors close by eliminating any options. Therefore, the more decisions you make with an active consciousness, the more assertive control you’ll have over your destiny.
To connect with the natural sense of inner freedom is the foundation of making choices that are free of external or internal pressures. Pressures induced by neediness or lack-based thinking.
So, do you take a leap of faith into boundless opportunity and abundance or do you hold back yet again, knowing that taking off in a new direction holds the fear of the unknown? When you discover that all you need is a shift in perspective, an alignment in intention and a commitment to follow your true path, it will all fall into place. Trust in your own intuition.
Message from the book
Ally and Challenger
The Dragons Duel takes place at the proverbial fork in the road. It is both Ally and Challenger at once, as it represents the tension of opposites. Even though the truth is that we live in unity, we experience the duality of faith and doubt, love and fear, right and wrong, black and white. This aspect of your current experience asks you to accept that although you may be going one way, another may call you to change direction.
Now is the time to inquire whether it is your ego or your soul leading you. There are always choices in life. Decision making also solves inner conflict. If you are torn between two dragons, the one that you choose to feed will be the one that wins. Which one is it? If it is not the one that serves the highest of your intentions, deliberately feed the other and the duel will be won in your favour. ~ Colette Baron-Reid
How shallow to presume war exists only within the physical world. Battles are waged for mind and soul, where things far from comprehension are confronted.
― Christopher Hawke,
Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it. ~ A. N. Wilson
