The subconscious mind often communicates to the conscious mind through symbols. This can happen through dreams or through synchronistic events we notice throughout our day. We may even notice symbols that get our attention through the scenery of our lives, such as a child’s drawing.
Iphelia’s dragon heart represents the evolution of human character through the effort to consciously transmute one’s old lizard brain responses.
