The Female Dragon
Agar is walking hand in hand with Ella by the sea side. He leans over to kiss her and suddenly, Ella’s face transforms. It becomes the face of a terrible dragon, a huge threatening mouth full of sharp teeth, growling at Agar. He is puzzled at the sudden transformation of the woman he is in love with.
Then Agar’s loyal dragon appears. He goes in front of Ella, looks at her monstrous head and sits calmly in front of her. He just waits. Ella becomes outraged and even more threatening. But Agar’s dragon is calm and patient. The monster is growling and tries to show its strength, but soon it seems that it is in agony. Agar remains calm.
Ella is weak and her roaring seems more like a cry of despair. Suddenly, a female dragon jumps out of her body. Ella falls exhausted into Agar's arms. Agar’s dragon gets up and examines with curiosity this female dragon.
Ella’s dragon is playful, full of energy and desire for life. Ella is exceptionally beautiful, dressed in white, relieved as if a heavy weight has been lifted off her. She blesses Agar for giving her a new life.
The two dragons are flirting and playing together like two happy kids. Agar holds Ella tenderly, knowing that he can make her happy.

This is an original story that was born during a meditation. It was written by a client, who, after solving many of his issues, embarked upon a search for his soul mate. An archetypal story about the Shadow-Dragon.
For most people the dark or negative side of the personality remains unconscious. The hero, on the contrary, must realize that the shadow exists and that he can draw strength from it. He must come to terms with its desructive powers if he is to become sufficiently terrible to overcome the dragon. I.e., before the ego can triumph, it must master and assimilate the shadow.
