PD365 is the Name!

You don’t know what you don’t know!
funny - did it make you think though?

You can’t see what you don’t want to see!
Why have you lost your curiosity?

I can’t feel - I won’t feel!
If I do its overspill!

Life today is full of change,
big and small, but all the same ...

Dealing with this and that and then,
can fry a mind that you don’t tend!

For all you see, and do and think,
happens instantly in a blink.

But it’s not uncontrolled, there are rules you see,
they govern who you seem to be!

So take charge of them, learn the how’s,
learn the why’s and create some wows.

For the next time the overspill nears,
you can handle it without the tears.

We have for you a simple way,
learn a new thought every day.

For as they build and grow together,
you can handle any weather.

So come and see and learn some more,
so you can open all those doors.

PD365 the name,
an online way to keep you sane!

 

What is a metaphor?

A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.

 
   

e.g. 

  • Banging your head against a brick wall
  • Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
  • When life gives you lemons make lemonade


We all use metaphors every day, for most part we are unaware of their significance.

Often the metaphorical phrase is linked to underlying truths which are hidden in a person subconscious.

 

How do metaphors help learning?


The 'power' of a metaphor is that, the conscious mind is unlikely to see the relevance and therefore not resist it.
 
  However the subconscious mind (the bit that controls all of our bodily functions, instant reactions and day to day ‘programming’) is constantly looking for a reference – it is always trying to see how things are related. 

Think sadness – how do you know what sadness is – it’s because you have felt it before. What about a solid object, let’s take a door – do you need to think about every door you come to? No once you knew what a door is, you subconscious automatically pulls the reference and applies it to all similar looking objects – okay the age old do I pull or push this door is one that may need a conscious application – but hopefully you get my meaning?

Metaphors are used all the time is stories – healing stories have been used for hundreds of years to help children understand the world around them, and/or heal from trauma. Some stories are passed down from generation to generation.

 
    

How do I use the Transformational Metaphors in PD365?

The most powerful way to use our Transformational Metaphors is to just read them – simple as that!

 
 
    Once you have read it, note any reactions you had – every reaction from “Yes! That makes sense” to “No! No! No! It’s not like that” are all clues, they are avenues into your mind!

They reveal what you are really thinking – not what you have consciously censored because ‘I can’t possible think that’. Your reactions are the actually truth no matter how random/outrageous or extreme they seem.

Then explore those reactions, nothing too serious, there are no right or wrong truths (beliefs), just resourceful and un-resourceful ones. As the section progresses, re-read the Transformational Metaphor, have your thoughts or feelings changed, maybe you have discovered a new meaning to the words!

Most importantly of all allow them to just be, they are doing exactly what they need to do – no beliefs can be changed unless you are ready to let them change, so all you have to do is enjoy the words!
