Sand Tray Therapy Analysis
by: 10804025

The sand tray therapy reveals the creator's conflicting personality types. On one end of the tray, there is the dark looming dragon, looking large and fierce and needing to be kept at bay. It appears ready to erupt if given the opportunity. On the opposite side is the bird in a garden of flowers, peaceful, carefree and calm. The creator appear to have a contrasting personality, one that is peaceful, calm, loving, carefree while on the other side there is a dark brooding, eruptive self. These two sides are kept separated by a creek. I wonder what acts as the creek for this person, helping to maintain a balance between the two personalities.
Between the two personality types is a third which is the white wolf; this is also fierce, but at the same time protective and nurturing. It seems to protect loved ones from the dragon part of the creator. By nature, the wolf is clever and evasive. A white wolf can denote a spiritual guide; it can also denote alertness and caution. This person appears to be cautiously alert in order to ensure the dragon does not consume those she loves. The wolf part in its protective role may enable people to experience more of the peaceful, serene part of the creator of the tray. This peaceful part also appears to want to be free and carefree not having to always be cautious of losing control over to the dragon part. Another part is represented by the sweet, cupcake and unicorn; these parts are small compared to the other two parts; these may be areas the creator would like to develop. The unicorn can mean real possibilities, reaches of reality, happiness and blessedness.
