I am sure you don’t want to hear this, but we discovered a sleeping dragon attached to a client who had already located and handled an earlier sleeping dragon.
The warning signs were the same as with all of the earlier sleeping dragon appearances. I will repeat them here so you can commit them to memory:
1. The client experiences a strong feeling of increased power and intention and realizes that all of the earlier barriers have fallen away.
2. The client experiences a significant drop in empathy for those who do not fully support them. They will discard old friends and groups they have been part of without a second thought. Their personality has changed and they have no sympathy for those who do not understand their new goals.
Sleeping Dragons are powerful beings who are dormant for some reason. They can remain dormant for many years without awakening. They can be awakened in several ways:
1. The host person can be confronted with a crisis that cannot be handled with their usual responses to life. As the crisis escalates, the sleeping dragon wakes up and takes over and changes how the person behaves until the crisis is handled. Sometimes the dragon stays awake for an extended period, like months or even years.
2. The person can receive SRT counseling concerning a different being on a topic that is important to the sleeping dragon. The being who is addressed will cognite and be freed from his compulsion, but the dragon will wake up and will cause the host to become disturbed and uncertain because they will not know where the upset is coming from. If the counselor is not watching the clients indicators, he may miss the fact that the client is not showing the expected signs of great relief that indicates a successful session.
The session was successful in handling the being who needed help, but the dragon was restimulated by the topic addressed and was not spotted and handled. Any time the tone level of a session drops after rising in response to counseling, the counselor needs to look for the possibility that another being has been triggered by the session. If a counselor keeps his attention focused on the being he is handling, this minimizes the possibility that other beings will be restimulated. However, if particular topic is highly charged, there is a possibility that more than one being will be restimulated.
If the clients indicators are not very good, there is the possibility that another being is sitting in restimulation. Locating and handling this being promptly will minimize the possibility of a sleeping dragon incident. If the client is not handled promptly, there is the possibility that the dragon will take over and remove the client from the counseling environment.
Make every effort to put the client back in control as soon as a sleeping dragon is spotted. Once a client recognizes the danger of possession by a sleeping dragon, he will be more likely to spot this before it is too late.
