Lastly...imagine a thunderstorm .Where it is taking place?How big is it?Describide how it unfolds in detail.
Done?Now for the answers.
The Cube represents yourself. The size of the cube represents your ego. A small cube represents a small ego. Medium cube represents an average ego. And a large cube means you think you're "The Sh!t!
If the cube is on the floor, that means you are grounded and down to earth. If it's floating..that means your life is unstable and unpredictable. Lastly...if your cube is colored, that means you put on a front,not necessarily that you're fake or pretentious,but the colour/colours of it represent how you'd like others to see you,or how you view yourself.(See here for the symbolism of colours). But if the cube is clear,it means what others see is what they get from you.
Flowers represent family and friends. If your flowers are close to your cube, that means you keep them close to you. If there are a lot,that means you have alot of friends. And of course if there aren't many it means either you are picky with people you let get close to you..or you just don't have that many friends.Note how you describe they make you feel:this is what you get out of your fsamily and circle of friends.
The ladder represents ambition. A small ladder means you have small goals. A medium ladder means you have reachable goals. And a large ladder means, "I'm the next big time".
If your ladder is on your cube, that means you are working on your goals right now. If it is away from the cube, it might mean you have them on hold, or you are not working that hard to achieve them.
The horse represents your romantic partner and what type you would like. Example...Smart,Funny,Relaxed were the words you chose. Those are the characteristics you want in a spouse.What your horse is doing might say a lot about what you'd like your partner to be like.
The thunderstorm represents your problems. If the thunderstorm is all over the cube that means your problems effects your whole life. It it's over the horse, that means your problems stem from your spouse...and etc. Pay attention to the symbolism of how the storm unfolds and what happens in the end.
My cube was on the ground,as big as the size of a small room,it was transparent and there was a person in there.That person was not trapped in it,could come and go as pleased,doing in it I have no idea what.OK,according to the explanation,my ego is too inflated,(I'm afraid it is),I am transparent and what you see is what you get from me (also true,I try to be as authentic and honest in my dealings ith people as possible). The person in there (it wasn't me) either that I feel trapped in an identity that others chose from me or that I am really intrested in human beings and human nature in the abstract.
I imagined a beautiful rose garden,many pink roses and all kinds of colours,for that matter,their fragrance made me feel great as I was wandering in there.As for the cube,my first thought was 'what does a cube have to do with a rose garden',so my cube was nowhere to be seen in the rose garden.Obviously,I get a lot of satisfaction out of family and friends (all colours,I like diversity in personalities) but I value a lot my individuality and I like keeping my space and distance.
Now my ladder was an interesting one.I imagined my uncle's old ladder that he had made himself.He was a construction worker and he had made this tall,wooden ladder,made of special wood planks,very sturdy and enhanced with iron work.Long after my uncle died that ladder was still propped up on the outer wall of their house,exposed to the elements and all kinds of weather conditions and still being sturdy and as useful as ever.
My horse was also very interesting....because it was two horses!I saw two thoroughbreds,one black,one white,galloping in harmony together,it was a beautiful picture really,I chose the words 'untamed,noble and strong' to describe them.
Ah,my thunderstorm.It was in the desert,lots of lightning and thunder and rain,I thought it was interesting to watch,really,because in real life I love watching thunderstorms from my window ever since I was a kid.So after the intense storm was over,the whole desert was in full bloom!A sea of beautiful,purple little flowers that was the most beautiful spectacle you could imagine.This shows I am a hopeless dreamer and optimistic that believes everything is gonna turn out fine in the end.Plus,I believe that after every storm,the beautiful purple flowers (spiritual growth?) reward you for all the difficulties experienced.
Love,peace and fun
