â€œTrauma is like a straightjacket that binds the mind and body in frozen fear. Pardoxically, it is also a portal that can lead us to awakening and freedom.â€
"The therapist discusses how the trauma is like a cut, which needs to be taken care of to keep it from getting infected."
"Trauma healing is like a long journey toward an unknown destination. Counselors can walk with victims for part of that long journey so that the victims know they are not alone."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
