Many of us make decisions and navigate through the world in a pre-verbal, metaphoric way. Whether it’s a career path, a place to live or a decision about who to marry, we will choose the one that “feels right”—the career that feels inspiring and expansive, the house that feels lighter, the person who brightens our spirits. These decisions were made through our body’s ability to metaphorically connect with universal creative energies that are much wiser than we are.
Yet metaphor continues to be fundamentally misunderstood as a linguistic device. Metaphor is much, much more than that.
At a deep level, metaphor shifts our vibratory energy, alters how we perceive the world, and aligns us with deep soul wisdom. Deeply working with metaphor is a direct path to mystical experience and connection with the Divine. Metaphor opens a potent way of knowing that we haven’t had access to in our culture.
