No matter our culture or upbringing, metaphor helps us process our inner world. At any given time, we may be “on fire,” “stuck,” “in over our heads,” “overwhelmed,” “burnt out,” or “in flow.” Metaphor helps us understand how we’re feeling and thus, better navigate our lives.
What is not so well known is that metaphor allows us to enter mystical states and communicate with the Divine. As the language of the heart and the brain’s right hemisphere, metaphor brings us into mystical and non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Metaphor’s terrain is the spiritual realm of the inner life. It’s how we align with greater wisdom.
