It all begins with the intuition. But what exactly is the intuition? Like design the intuition is made up of a limitless mix of mental and emotional elements conjured up by a living intelligence harbored in every human being. Let us look at some of the qualities that together give precedence to a truly insightful process that goes beyond the intellect. In other words, what are some of the skills associated with the ability to exercise the intuition when designing?

This is first and foremost when establishing a base from which to bring creative expression into 3D space/time. It becomes imperative that you have a good understanding of your strengths along with the skills that you may have less confidence. It is important to know one’s limitations for it creates the constraints in which we must function while negotiating within the dimensional parameters of 3D space/time.
“Understanding others and the external world is useful in its place, but nothing can beat the precious gifts of self-knowledge and intimacy with our own psyche, self-possession and sovereignty in all that we do.”
This knowledge is founded upon discovering and implementing the very virtuosity your searching for. Yes it is a paradox. It is part and parcel of the design axiom that you cannot escape. What is of importance however is how you interpret and respond to what you discover. What becomes immediately apparent is the fact that the deeper your inquiry the more you will know and learn about your self. Focus on the experience of discovering yourself in a symbolic fashion. Your knowledge of self will come in cycles and in stages … as it should. It is a quest that never ends and is referred to as the challenge of Life.
“How wonderful that we have met with a paradox. Now we have some hope of making progress.”
Know what is important. You are always making choices. This is an integral part of what Life is about. But some choices seem more important than others. Your impressions are viewed with an intuitive lens on how you feel about a situation. The intuition enters into the picture and begins to lead you within a set of guidelines you think you know in comparison to the emotions and opinions provoked in reference to your position. It is here where your imagination may run rampant. You find yourself in the midst of trying to bring balance to a situation based upon experience, sentiment, opinion and context. By means of the intuition you begin to experience the values you innately know to be “real” in comparison with those you were conditioned to believe. The choices nonetheless remain yours alone.
What is of greatest importance to you? It is from this perspective (POV) that you view and interpret all observable experiences and events within and around you. Typically these perceptions orbit about definitions and opinions you’ve created for yourself. They appear before your awareness in a symbolic fashion and are absorbed subconsciously.
Your intuition is typically based upon past experience and your ability to remember and/or forget the ramifications of past choices. The only constant is change. Change appears before our consciousness within the guise of time. It is an important factor when we design and begin to intuitively make choices. What is of particular wonder is the invisible arrangement between elements that together materialize the consciousness we experience and describe as reality. Some things can never be measured to their fullest extent. Design just happens to be one of them.
There are three types of intelligences. One is synaptic and chemical in substance, appears to originate in the brain and is felt in the gut, i.e. the body. Another is sensed by the pineal gland, is electric in quality and is perceived as the mind. The third stems from the heart, is magnetic in character and is viewed as emotion. The intuition is a compilation of all these intelligences.
An accumulation of facts gives rise to knowledge. An accumulation of knowledge gives rise to understanding. An accumulation of understanding invites wisdom. All aspects of intelligence are collected both intellectually and intuitively by means of experience. All facets of intelligence are qualified into their most appropriate form of energy, light and information by means of a design process made apparent within the parameters of a belief system.
Design is multidimensional in character and dependent upon the intuition. Design enters the unknown where guidance emerges symbolically in the form of a synchronistic event, i.e. idea. The intuition determines how to react and what decisions need to be made based upon changes in the form of mental, emotional and physical input.
The intuition points in a direction of potentiality founded upon experiences contingent upon universal change. Change is a given whose affects can best be felt in every synchronistic event. Synchronicity affords us the catalyst for every synergistic moment.
Design’s purpose is to enter the unknown in a meaningful way. Design is dependent upon the intuitive urge to respond and interact with Life. Design is the purposeful manipulation of energy, light and information towards a meaningful and purposeful result.
All forms of energy are holographic in context. The known is merely an idea made discernible in reference to a conceptual unknown.
“… create the life for which we have dreamed, the outcomes for which we were destined, the human experience for which we were designed.”
