''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"

The Power of Metaphors

OK, so we have a built-in magic genie that creates reality from  our words and thoughts. But what about those negative metaphors we use all the time? Most of us don't realize we could be taken literally when we say "Gimme a break" (broken bones), "Heartbroken" (heart trouble) "Low man on the totem pole" (taken for granted/coming last) etc. Start listening to what you say and start saying what you mean.
