Metaphor is embodied wisdom.
We commonly think of metaphor as something poets use to embellish their language and a tool of the left hemisphere. We also commonly view it as “not real.” We say, “that’s just a metaphor.”
But metaphor is much more than that.
When we engage with a key metaphor, it connects us with a realm of deep wisdom that lies below the surface of our consciousness. Through metaphor, we directly connect with the creative forces of our world.
We can spend lots of time learning techniques for how to make better decisions. We can make action plans, write lists of pros and cons, and study with experts.
Or, we can step into a realm that organically shifts our ‘sense of being’ and facilitates healing and clarity.
