Q1-4: blue, purple, red, red

Q5: afternoon at the beach with paints, almonds and henry.

Comments: Evidenced by KT’s poetic response to Q5 her connectedness to nature is very strong. She is grounded by nature and physical engagement with nature. Further strong sense of freedom reveals openness and creativity. Double red is concerning. Her sense of balance and or security is not optimal and she acts out in response to her anxiety by exhibiting recycling habits that do not reflect her deep connection to nature. Double red represents duality.

Diagnosis: While KT has a very strong connection to nature, she still exhibits the symptoms of eco-aversion syndrome as a response to feelings of instability.

Prescription: Try to identify three things in your life that might be the cause of insecurity or imbalance. Organize your concerns depending on how much control you actually have over each. Go to the beach at low tide. Bring some floss. Find a few small objects (they should fit in the palm of your hand… a piece of drift wood, or a rock, some seaweed, flotsam or jetsam) at the beach or on your walk, each object representing your concerns. Find a few small stones. Tie them, with floss, to the object representing the concern you can do littlest about. Take off your shoes, roll up your pants and walk out to the shoreline. Be careful. Throw the object into the sea. Let it go.

Take the second object, one that represents something you can do a little bit about and roll it over in your hands. Make a small mound of sand and tuck the object into it. Lay your plans. Pat it down. Imagine it when you need to be reminded what you can and cannot control.

Take the final object home with you. This is what you can act on immediately. Keep the object as a talisman to keep you focused. When you’ve done all you can to alleviate this concern take the object back down to the beach. Take off your shoes, roll up your pants and walk out to the shoreline. Be careful. Throw the object into the sea. Let it go.

Please recycle.
