Ever read a story that had a dragon in it?
C’mon, think about when you were a kid. Heroic stories with epic adventures always had some fire-breathing dragon waiting to devour its prey. It was one of the biggest obstacles any hero or heroine in a story had to face.
Here in the Zen Rebel community, the “dragon” symbolizes two things.
First, it represents the part of you that holds yourself back. It’s fearful, conniving and dangerous. It doesn’t want you to succeed. In fact, it will get you to believe ANYTHING to quit (especially those stories it knows will burn you the most… pun intended). It wants you to believe toxic thoughts so you stay where you are… all the while feeling helpless against it.
However, the dragon symbolizes something else.
It represents your ability as a woman to be fierce, bold and confident. It is the force within you that compels you to go on even when you’re desperate to give up. It’s the part of you that knows there’s more to this life than what you’ve experienced.
In the Zen Rebel tribe, our women know that your internal dragon will help or hinder your journey. And that difference depends on you and your choices from here on out. That’s why our logo is a dragon.
The actual definition of a Zen Rebel is a woman who chooses a healthy, positive life and seeks to know her purpose so she can powerfully impact those around her. It all starts with making powerful shifts in her mind, thoughts and words, then in her body and health and ultimately in her pursuits and passions.
You can be Zen AND be a Rebel. In fact, it’s the perfect way to have faith and trust in a higher power while living life on your own terms. It draws forth wisdom and confidence while always pushing you to be the best version of yourself, set the example for others and embrace a vibrant life.
