Fear is a natural response towards potential danger. However, our psyche might associate strange symbols with potential danger just because we have unresolved emotions in our unconscious mind.
The picture that we are going to show you is a perfect picture for psychoanalysis of your deepest unconscious fear.
The picture itself triggers your unconscious mind to link figures with fear because it shows a subliminal message of a skull, the symbol of fear. It gives your unconscious mind a note of fear. The first figure you see reveals much about your biggest fear as it is the first thing you associate this unconscious trigger with.
The psychoanalysis test is quick and easy. Its effectiveness is astonishing. All you have to do is read about the first figure that caught your eye. Take a look:
Do not overthink it!
What’s The First Thing that You Saw?
1. Little Girl
If the first figure you saw in this picture was the little girl, your fears stream from repressed emotions that come from your childhood.
There are numerous types of events that can mark a child’s mind. If they are not properly elaborated, they can surface in the adulthood in shape of fears, addictions, cognitive patterns and inappropriate desires.
The relationship with your mother is crucial to your emotional development. If the child had to spend too much time away from the maternal figure, or if the mother has given little or no affection during the early childhood, it is possible that everything is projected unconsciously through fears.
This way the child might develop a fear of making decisions or taking responsibility.
The trauma doesn’t have to be in the childhood, it can be immediately in the infancy, or even in the perinatal phase, during gestation or delivery.
The butterfly is one of the symbols that is usually linked with a positive meaning. However, there is a deeper unconscious meaning to this symbol that derives from a darker place.
According to the interpretation of dreams, the butterfly is a sign of chances and beginnings.
A bright and colorful butterfly is a sign of good hope, a new happening in one’s life while a colorless butterfly is linked to the unrealized opportunity that would have served us.
The spiritual meaning of this symbol is a conveyor of souls in the afterlife. It leads the butterfly to the world of the dead.
If the first thing you saw on this picture was the butterfly than your unconscious fears stream from the fear of death, or the other side that is the fear of not living, missing chances. You could also resist to feel suppressed emotions of grief by close people who are not there anymore.
The strawberry placed perfectly in the center of the image and in size far greater than the fruit actually is in reality, represents the heart. The strawberry is represented as a symbol of love since long time ago. Well, a better representation would be a symbol of the produce that comes from love’s pain.
There is even a legend that says: because of Adonis’ death, Goddess Venus could not stop crying, and every tear that fell on the ground produced strawberries.
If the first figure you saw is that of strawberry, what you are looking for is in your heart. Your greatest fear streams from the unconscious resistance you have towards love.
The origin of this fear and of such emotional resistance towards something as beautiful as love often comes from the childhood and how our parents expressed their feelings about each other in front of us. However, it might come from a brutal heartbreak in one of your first relationships.
The exaggerated size of the strawberry reveals how much love you have to give. It says that there is so much love you are suppressing in yourself that you are afraid to give because you think you will be punished.
A spider is one of the most common fears among people. It’s an evolutionary survival mechanism that made us extra aware of little dangers that could have surrounded us.
However, a spider as a symbol streams from a deeper unconscious fear that our surrounding is not safe.
If you’ve seen the spider figure first on this picture it means that your unconscious fears come from your inability to feel completely safe in an environment.
You always look into the details and try to find something wrong and dangerous even in the safest places. This constant outlook for danger prevents you from completely surrendering to beautiful and happy moments, and you usually over think every plan. Anxiety and panic attacks might be something you struggle with.
