Symbols are the oldest form of language. Symbols predate culture, language and even time. They are so much a part of us that we make mental connections with them that are not often conscious. Our psyche communicates in symbols.
The MARI is a comprehensive system that uses symbols, colors and mandalas, to reveal the inner truth and reality of what is at one's heart; one's truest and deepest feelings and inner knowings-not what the ego filters of consciousness would want it to be, but what it really is.
One can use a MARI to reveal where they are in life and to reveal how they really feel about any subject, issue, person or decision. There is nothing psychic about it. MARI, a Jungian based assessment tool, is the ONLY nationally approved test that encompasses where someone is mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
I have seen MARI reveal severe dehydration to obsessive TV watching. I have seen it reveal old wounds that are no longer a burden, a feeling of having arrived, a deep relationship with the divine, strong intuitive abilities, to stay in a relationship or not and how to navigate it either way. MARI is unlimited in what it can reveal. It can refelect someone in a period of transformation or even re-birth. It can even the beginning stages of disease before it has manifested into the physical.
The first step of the test is for the client to select the symbols they are drawn to. The client is then directed to choose, from a pool of 45 color cards, the color that they feel “goes with” each of their chosen symbols. These colors add dimensions that may be emotional, physical, cognitive or spiritual to the chosen symbols. The sets of symbol and color cards are then placed on a ‘wheel' that is comprised of thirteen developmental stages that are arranged sequentially. It is once the symbols and colors are placed that the answers the client seeks begin to take shape.
MARI is a beautiful tool to start the New Year off with or really, any time- to take stock of where you are on this wheel of life. You can literally see the stages of life that you are currently working, how you are currently handling the stages and confidently know the way to move through these stages and into the next ones.
