In my post, Find Your Intuitive Voice with Crayons , you learned how to hone in on the form your intuitive language took whether it is imagery, words, smells, senses, dreams, memories, knowing and gut feelings.
Now that you are familiarized in the form that you are more likely to receive intuitive information it is time to continue to the next step in building your intuition. The second step to building your intuition is learning how to interpret the intuitive information you are given.
A lot of times intuitive information has been received but it is dismissed. How can you interpret something that was tossed to the side and forgotten about? The experiment below focuses on being able to take in and recall all the intuitive information that you are given during your intuitive guessing.
We will be working with our trusty box of crayons along with a recording device. If you don’t have a digital recording device, pen and paper will work just fine.
You will need to record all information given during the intuitive guessing time frame. Recording all the information will allow you to see what was truly intuitive information versus, what I refer to as, “trying to” information. Trying to information is when the mind reasons and reachs for an answer to a problem or question. Intuitive information isn’t obtained by searching for it. Intuitive information has to be allowed to come to you.
Experiment 2: Interpreting Your Intuitive Language
Take a box of crayons and spread them out over a table top. Shuffle them about to mix the colors around. Close your eyes and pick up a crayon.
Slowly inhale and exhale three times. Take this time to clear your mind.
As your intuitive language begins to speak to you record whatever you see, hear, touch, taste, feel and think. (If the dog barks in the background record that information too, it might be of use later.)
After you have recorded your intuitive information and formed your color guess be sure to record both your color guess and the actual crayon color.
Do this experiment at least five times. Please don’t concern yourself with the accuracy of the results. The intention isn’t to test the accuracy of your intuitive guesses; it is to learn how to interpret your intuitive language.
When the experiment is completed look back over the intuitive information that was recorded. What you need to look for is any information that was dismissed but was still valid. For instance, you might have dismissed the dog that was barking in the background, however, your dog is brown and the crayon you picked was brown. By dismissing this information you missed the opportunity to be able to interpret it and guess correctly.
Another example of interpreting your intuitive information incorrectly is when intuitive guessing is out of sync with the timing of your pick. You may find that your guesses were slightly ahead of your crayon picking. This means on your first crayon pick you may have guessed blue and were wrong, however, the second crayon you picked was actually blue. Your intuition was correct there was a blue crayon during your experiment but it wasn’t in sync with timing of the pick.
The more you do this experiment the better you will become at understanding what is intuitive information versus what is not. Being able to decipher which information is intuitive is the first step to interpreting your intuitive language.
