Self-interpretation is most powerful

Draw a Memory

Looking Back

Reflect upon a memory and then draw a picture of it. It does not have to be well developed. Then have a dialogue - you and the drawing. Write questions and let your memory respond. What is the purpose, you ask? The answer: Simply to become more conscious of your unconscious! It is in this way that you begin the "Individuation process."

Gregg Furth, PhD, is a graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute, a contributing author of "Living with Death and Dying" by Elizabeth Kubler Ross, and he is the author of the book, "The Secret World of Drawings", subtitled, Healing Through Art. Mr. Furth says, "Images tend to travel deeper than words into the unconscious." Furth guides his patients to interpret their own drawings. He says, "Self interpretation", (listening to your own inner wisdom rather than external authorities), "is most powerful".

Translation helps me listen to my intuition. So does drawing.
