ABSTRACT

This study examined the symbolism of Jasmine, a character in Disney’s Aladdin films, whose archetype emerged as a compensation for what was lacking in a child’s consciousness through sandplay therapy. To understand the symbolism of Jasmine, this study was conducted regarding Jasmine’s origin and background by watching two films and reading related stories before analyzing the client’s sandpictures. A 7-year-old girl with symptoms of separation anxiety was the client in this study. The symbol of Jasmine, or the feminine healing qualities that help form a relationship through the wisdom of salt, emerged in the client’s sandpictures as the possibility of growth, light of consciousness, healing power, harmony with masculine energy, and a new image of family. The feminine principles that engage in relationships through the wisdom of salt is a value, encompssing us, that penetrates the times. The wisdom is discovered as an outcome of the pain that lead to growth. The sandplay process healed the client’s psychological difficulties while the Jasmine symbol gave her the strength and courage that she needed to form a relationship with the world through a new wisdom of life.
