My Personality Sand Tray Therapy Type

My Personality Sand Tray Therapy Type

I spent time just feeling and smoothing the sand to get the right shape I wanted for my sand tray therapy tray . The center clearing had to be completely clean forming a battle ground. The colored stones were lights to demarcate the base of the mountain and the battle zone ensuring that every activity is carried out in the presence of light. The battle ground is the middle of a volcanic mountain that has dried up. The enemies are made up of a complex array of various insects and animals showing the complexity of the battle. This center piece combines my green and gold personality type. I stand fearlessly in a white gown arm stretched. Although I have superheroes behind me as sources of strength, I proceed alone, showing my independence. I stand courageously, boldly and undaunted as I face the complex arrays of enemies as they pour out from different angles. This battle also requires a complex thought process to manage the situation. Behind me in the corner, I have a dove high up signifying the Holy Spirit, my source of help and strength, this is part of my blue personality indicating spirituality, in addition in the front left corner, my blue side is obvious.

The scene with the woman the children and a dog in a basket signifies nurturing, giving caring and sympathy (this is indicated in the stretched out arm to the baby). The scene in the right corner at my back is a scene with a woman talking with two young men with a dog by her side looking intently at the young men as if to say, listen well to the woman. The Dog also signifies the conversation is friendly and casual. The woman is mentoring the young men and teaching them about life. This scene is a combination of my blue and gold personality which is sensible, practical, parental, stable, dependable, conservative, detailed, reliable, positive, caring, insightful, giving, and nurturing.

The last scene on the far right throws a different twist to the seriously of the other scenes. This is my orange personality at play. The Disney characters; Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald duck in front of a plate of cheese cake signifies my fun loving, fantasy side full of adventure, excitement and ready to try new things. This is opposite of the center piece that is scary and so serious. The tray reveals how I can be serious and nurturing at one moment and be fun loving the next moment.
