Play Therapy and Sand Tray Therapy Zen Garden Translation Response
by: summer 2014 student 6

Your Zen garden immediately stuck out to me, I noticed first all of the different textures of butterflies. When I think of butterflies I think of transformation.
Butterflies can signifies longevity, creativity, romance, joy and spirituality. You may be experiencing a new way of thinking. I can’t help but wonder if you are undergoing some sort of transformation? I see two sets of butterflies in your world, To see two butterflies in your dream represent romance and a long and happy marriage. I noticed also that the sand in your tray is very dimensional, it is not all one level. Maybe this represents diversity within yourself. The chocolate heart candle is in one corner, hearts can represent love, courage, and romance. It is representative of how you are currently dealing with your feelings and expressing your emotions. I really enjoyed your choice of colors in you peace garden, the colors were descriptive of how you were feeling. Purple is indicative of devotion, healing abilities, loving, kindness, and compassion. It is also the color of royalty, high rank, justice, wealth and dignity. Blue represents truth, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness. Do any of these adjectives describe your personality or how you were feeling when you created your world? Lots of stones and shells, stones can symbolize strength, unity, and unyielding beliefs. There is a combination of rough and smooth stones/shells. If Rough stones can represents your quest in recognizing and developing your self-identity. Part of this quest is to also become aware of your subconscious and suppressed thoughts. I noticed the positions of the figures, all around the edges of the tray almost like a border. Borders can represent transitions, phases and even protection. I’ve enjoyed viewing your world!
