A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase
that means one thing is used to describe an object or ideas
to which it is not literally applicable — a ship is said to plow the sea.

Denise Shekerjian

Webster defines Metaphor:

The application of a word or phrase to an object or concept,
which it does not literally denote: in order to suggest
comparison with another object or concept, as in “A mighty
fortress is our God.”

A figure of speech founded on resemblance, by which a word
is transferred from an object to which it properly belongs to
another in such a manner that a comparison is implied
though not formally expressed, thus, “that man is a fox” is a
metaphor; but “that man is like a fox,” is a simile or

Whenever we explain or communicate a concept by likening
it to something else, we are using a metaphor.

Tony Robbins,
Awaken the Giant Within.

Don’t let bad metaphors be a part of anyone’s master plan.
Especially yours! Change your metaphors to a process of
renewed awakening.

“Get right to the top and reach out!” Picture a beautiful
woman mountain climber, reaching out with outstretched
arms on the top of a snow-capped mountaintop.


Metaphors are common groups of words, which contribute a
punch to a meaning by association.

There are different ways of defining metaphors. For instance
dictionaries explain it as a word or a phrase to illustrate a
real thing or action in its relationship to something else.

In our capacity to illustrate the importance of metaphors in
creativity we are going to use them in association as related
to the qualities which are attributed to creative people.
According to most authorities creative people have the
following characteristics. But don’t we all have them? We
hope to share ways in which you can use them to initiate your
interpretation in the transformation of your own life.

· Innovative – Ideas — Change

· Originality

· Diversity — Versatility — flexibility – resilience

· Humorous

· Aware,–Focused–Committed

So let’s go and see how we can apply some of these
metaphors to each of these characteristics as applied to
creativity. It is interesting how metaphors can stimulate
thinking into so many different avenues by association.
Applying your own interpretations to metaphors can lead to a
remarkable world of similarities in your own thinking and
association to incredible dimensions.

We are all familiar with the everyday usage of popular
metaphors such as:

“Do you see?” “When you can see through the Hype!” “I’m
bursting at the seam!”
“The eyes of the customer.” Am I on a Wild Goose Chase?”
The list is endless.

Let’s start our journey into the exhilarating “constellations of

Ideas, Innovation, Change. Freshness.

“No idea is more than an imaginary potency, a mushroom
cloud (destroying nothing, making nothing) rising from
blinding consciousness.”

Saul Bellow, The Bellarosa

Think of what Saul means by imaginary potency? Doesn’t
our imagination rule everything? You can interpret this in
many ways but one can imagine a mushroom in our minds,
stimulating our thinking into an expansive mushroom of
thought. For instance, another perception of mushrooming
may be illustrated by the enormous mushroom effect of the
atomic bomb rising into creative explosive productive ideas.
Aside from the devastating effect of the atomic bomb
visualize only beneficial ideas for mankind, instead of
destruction. What is your interpretation?

“In the mind-world ideas are the indestructible elements
which form the jeweled constellations of the interior life.”

Henry Miller “The creative life”

Can you picture one idea leading to a constellation, of
multiple ideas to hold sky full of them? One idea of building
on the other leading into “Who knows what?” Notice even
another metaphor “Who knows what?” Is used to explain
another thought!

“Here,/in the rule of my life/the objects keep changing.”
Anne Sexton, “The room of my life”

One of the main characteristics of creative and innovative
people is their ability for flexibility and change. In our world
that is dramatically changing so rapidly isn’t it exciting that we
can be a part of it? We are living in one of the most
exhilarating eras for creative changes in all aspects of our
lives. Thankfully most of them are good. Think of ways in
which you can become more flexible, resilient and
adaptable? Is the room in your life opening doors and
windows to let your inner self out?

“Luck never gives, it only lends.”
Anon, Swedish proverb

What are you doing to stimulate the luck in your life? Are you
ready for success? Or are you afraid of success? Many
times we don’t think about the actual fear some people have
of success. Think hard about it!

“All owned the affairs of men hang by slender thread.”
“El Ponto”

One can relate this metaphor with simple events, changes,
and incidents and just about anything that can make the
slightest change in our lives to greatness or despair.
Thinking of the slender thread can remind one of the
metaphor, “The Sword of Domacles” when his King, in order
to remind Domacles how precarious his position in life was
at the Palace. At a banquet in honor of Domacles, the King
placed a sword directly over Domacles head, hanging by a
few horsehairs. The implication, “Just a reminder of who is
really the boss!” Couldn’t anyone of our simple deeds of
kindness be that simple strand of hair leading to the turning
point in our lives?


“They sun themselves in the great man’s light, and feel it to
be their own element.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, speech “The American scholar,”
Harvard college, Aug. 31, 1837. (They as the masses and
the herd)

Isn’t it interesting how Emerson conveys the thought that most
people in this world will bask in the accomplishments of all
those marvelous creative and innovative risk takers? It’s a
wonderful experience instead of “following the leader, to
being the leader.” A good feeling is when you are the
contributing mentor and “the masses and the herd” bask in
your contributing greatness to their dignity and welfare?
What’s wrong with you being their best coach?

“And this I swear by blackest brook of hell,/I am no pick-purse
of another’s wit.”

Sir Philip Sydney, “Sonnet 74″Astrophel & Stella.

It appears somebody accused him of pilfering an idea as
many other writers, artists, coaches and just about everybody
else has borrowed from somebody else.
When Dad belonged to the National Speakers Association,
he conveyed to us a common statement. “When the speaker
borrows a quote or idea from one speaker, that’s stealing but
when he borrows from a whole group of speakers, that’s

We should be grateful that we can contribute to somebody
else’s creativity by the letting them copy from us?



“Every human being is a colony.”
Pablo Picaso’s Epigraph

The uniqueness of metaphors is the meaning it has only to
you and what perceptions it conjures in your imagination!

Jog your memory as to what the colony of your life is? What
makes up the different colonies within your life that stimulates
the different worlds of your imagination. It could be family,
associations, work, hobby or just about anything that is
empowering and having that phenomenal, enrapturing and
energizing effect in your life?

What does this overused metaphor still mean to you?
“Variety’s the spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.” William
Cowper, “The Timepiece”
What type of variety do you have continuously adding to
wonderment and resourcefulness?
