What does it feel like from the inside? It may take the
shape of a dream or nightmare you’ve had. You may begin by selecting items that
represent an inner struggle you are engaged in, a decision you are trying to make,
or qualities like playfulness or courage you want to embrace.
It may be mysterious—you can’t explain why, but these feel
like the right objects, and you know just how to place them, without knowing what
Your tray may carry a great deal of feeling and insight
that will open up to you as you dialogue. You may find yourself engaged with objects
of wisdom, love, transformation and power that appear in your tray as gifts at a
critical moment in your life.
Your sandtray can be full of surprises, discoveries of deep
resources and buried but important parts of yourself, necessary separations,
transformations and reconciliations. Every tray is unique.
In this work I encourage us to honor the sandtray creation
and listen to it as to an emissary from the deeper self.
