In ancient times Lilith was the Sumeric Goddess of the sky. In the Zohar, the holy book of the Hebrews we find Lilith as the first wife of Adam. As she refused to take the under position during their mating ritual, because she believed they were created equal in the eyes of God, Adam asked God for another wife. Then Eve was created of his rib. Lilith can be found as the snake in the tree of temptation.
Lilith is archetypical for the 2 sides of power: dauntless, fearless, powerful, firy, exiting, free, strong, honest, uninhibited and assertive. Full of temptation, desire, passion and wildness. That can be of great advantage, but it also has a shadow side: it can lead to ruthlessness, annihilation and rage. She incorporates both ends. Like Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, that shows her presence by roaring through the lava tubes, spitting out fire when she surfaces.
Fire is transformation. Transformation is alchemy and needs that power.
Where do you need Lilith in your life? Are there things that you would like to change? Behavioral patterns, life situations? What do you want to let go of, but have not so far? What have you postponed? What have you not said and done, that would give you a sense of relief? What is your relationship to your anger? Do you admit that easily? Or does your anger quickly transform in empathy, understanding, sadness or fear?
Many people, I included, are afraid of their anger. But anger is the doorway to your power. It takes courage to connect to those deep and wounded places in yourself and face that roaring power inside you. But once you do, the freedom and energy that come free will blow you away…
The dragon as a totem animal helps you to overcome your fears and live your truth. Druids, Shamans and witches see the dragon as a magical animal and use him to perform their magic. The dragon has two sides, just as Lilith. On one hand the Dragon represents wisdom, spiritual power, creative power, protection, courage, initiation, potential, magic and abundance. The dragon is the charismatic protector of life and creation itself. But the dragon can also be selfish, intolerant, controlling, greedy, revengeful and destructive.
Energetically the dragon represents Yin and Yang. Balancing these two forces, fully admitting the sun and shadow side in yourself, will give you the life force energy and metal power to choose your path, follow it , master the skills you need any remove any obstacles you encounter on the way. With its breath of fire it wakes you up and helps you to live your full potential.
