If I’m going to write a blog about symbolism, and their interpretation in my life, I suppose I better start by introducing myself.
I am Corianne. I live in Utah. I have had depression for the vast majority of my life. I have recently started seeing a depth psychologist, and have found the Jungian approach to be the most helpful to me.
As part of my therapy, I take note of the symbols that come in to my head, usually through dreams, or images that come to mind at random times. I take these symbols, draw them in a sketch book, then set out to explain them. The explanations come from my own experiences and intuition, as well as more universal or cultural explanations.
I do not intend this blog to be a dream log (because there is NOTHING more boring than listening to someone else’s dream), nor do I intend it to be an encyclopedia of symbolism. I intend this blog to be a reflection on the symbols my mind deems to be important. If I can offer some explanation to someone else along their path, then all the better.
