I always thought that Tatsuya was a boy-dragon... but it's a SHE! What a surprise! Her message is "have courage", and she is offering her company during this week so I may walk my path with less fear. I see her a confirmation that I have chosen the right path spiritually, for the time being (I'm still making choices in other aspects of my life). Now that I have opened this door, I must go through it.
Did you know I am afraid of the dark? Yes, 23 years old and afraid of dark like a child. No, not even candlelight helps me, as it is still 'dark'. Yet today I turned off all the lights and stayed in darkness for a long time, so I could bathe in the moonlight and meditate... and felt no fear. Okay, maybe a little bit, but not that overwhelming emotion that usually makes me run towards the closest light bulb!
Perhaps Tatsuya was on my shoulder already, lending me courage (although I had not talked to her yet). But her message of bravery is about both the small and the big fears. The ones that simply bother us, and the ones that sometimes define us. In many aspects of my life, I am still defined by my fears... by all things I think I cannot do, by all leaps I am afraid to take. In Tatsuya's own words:
"You fear masks a deeper dilemma: that of not being your true self and of not knowing that self. This stage will see you reveal your spiritual beliefs, live with integrity, open up emotionally, and become richer and more blissful in every way. [...] Come through the door. There is nothing to fear. You will see." (p.78)Lucy Cavendish says that Tatsuya usually shows up when we are exploring new options in life, be it moving to a new place, seeking a deep change in any area or dealing with the stagnated situations... she is a Dragonfae of the turning points. She is the fire that helps to burn the old, not to destroy it, but to transform it. We cannot forget who we were, because it's part of who we are, but we can, like an alchemist, use the fire to transmute ourselves.
This fiery Dragonfae is telling me to stop fighting against the past, because it is a useless battle. There's a door before me. It's time to transmute past and use the lessons learnt, good and bad, to build my journey into the future. And it is time to stop being afraid of everything... from the greatest darkness, life itself is born.
