Designing the Intuition

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.”
Niels Bohr

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.”

Design Metaphysics: Intuitively Felt

The intuition describes the process of looking within. The intuition is an integral part of design and the design process. By means of contemplation/meditation an observer is afforded the opportunity to expand their field of consciousness beyond the constraints of 3D space/time. Design and its dependency upon the imaginative use of the symbol is a channel for greater knowledge and understanding. These are moving targets that can only be found within the parametric constraints of an always changing perspective (POV). The intuition can go beyond the constraints of thought by virtue of the design process. 

The intuition appears to have a mysterious origin and could be interpreted as the condition of a “higher” mind, i.e. a thought process unhindered by the impositions of a rational mindset. The intuition carries a POV that is cast with an emotional flavor that can be best felt rather than explained.

Feelings act as a gauge or barometer. Feelings have the potential to guide and bring into awareness differing points of view (POV). We typically describe these feelings as being part of an intuitive prompt designed to describe a certain intangible impression. Feelings also mark an attitude or position upon which future choices can be made. Every event harbors the opportunity to expand or contract our field of awareness. Every event affords the occasion to attract and thereby channel a facet of consciousness once left unknown. Feelings by virtue of the intuition allow for an expansion of consciousness by focusing emotionally upon the situation at hand. Intuition's purpose? ... to perfect and heighten one’s own "sense" of personal awareness through experience. 

Design lies hidden within the geometry of Life. Design consciousness reveals an awareness of this fundamental principle by means of the symbol. Design appears to originate from a conceptual Source that permeates every dimension of space/time. The concept of a virtual source is disclosed by means of a series of intuitive impressions (feelings/experiences) that together describe and bring into fruition a particular awareness by means of identification. This creative task is fulfilled by exercising a certain degree of resourcefulness. Design consciousness is what brings both a meaning and purpose to these intuitive revelations.

There seems to be a direct correlation between experience and intuition. The reliability of one's intuition depends greatly on past knowledge and occurrences in a specific area … This is not to say that one with a great amount of experience is always going to have an accurate intuition (because some can be biased); however, the chances of it being more reliable are definitely amplified.”
Eugene Sadler-Smith. Inside Intuition. 2008

Design’s potential rests in the transmutations that occur between form and formlessness. Design's strength rests in the imagination. Design creates the bridge between the old and the new. Design is an integral part of a subconscious field (state) based upon what is considered both meaningful and purposeful.

"When you return to the awareness that you are consciousness and that you are consciousness that molds to your focus and is eternally abundant you create a new relationship to this moment.

Even though you might not distinctly perceive things beyond your physical state, without hearing or sight you still can have a feeling, a sense of your own expansiveness and you can have a sense of how your consciousness can just expand infinitely.
Your awareness is the host in which all experiences arise and this can be more real to you as you tune to the subtle energy you are. Then you can see quite clearly that all of the conflict and all the challenges are temporary arising within this awareness. Everything you want to be different can actually arise differently within your awareness. You can also see that everything can be resolved in your awareness. All the beauty of life can be known within your awareness.  At any given moment there is so much going on and rising up which is beautiful and benefiting you and everything that is and that in essence all of it is rising and falling away and yet the perpetual thing is your awareness."
Design subconsciously assimilates into awareness (personal field) all that can be selectively experienced. The intuition absorbs and integrates experiences and events of importance through vibratory means. The intuition does this symbolically. Design allows for the realization of the feelings that enter into and emerge from the intuition. Design holds the symbolic keys to both the conscious and the subconscious, the visible and the invisible.

It is imperative to know that every attempt in explaining these concepts shall fall short in full understanding due to parameters inherent in every language. Design attempts to describe a multi faceted space, i.e. consciousness, where every internal and external fractal surface, side, point, face and plane act as both a source and reflection of an intuitively felt intelligence made intrinsically evident by means of a metaphorical image-ination. Paradoxically at the foundation of a Design Consciousness is an awareness that can only be intuitively "felt" and never fully understood in 3D space/time. 

The intuition is multi-dimensional in scope and vibrates at frequencies that perform beyond the parameters of material awareness. The intuition gives cause to what has been designated as a "feeling". Feelings appear to be a combination of many frequencies appearing to originate from a common Source or point of origin (POV). Interestingly enough however Consciousness seems to harbor a multitude of such "re-sources". Generally these components demonstrate the characteristics of being mental, emotional and sometimes material in context. Such a generalization is due to the constraints intrinsic to 3D space/time and humanity's tendency to compartmentalize and qualify experiences within the parameters of linear time.

“Feelings are the language of the soul. They tell us what the soul wants us to look at now. They lead us to greater and deeper understandings. They are the doorway to wisdom. They are wisdom itself, cloaked in the garment of our illusion.”
Neale Donald Walsch     

Multi-dimensional interpretations will sometimes appear irrational when observed from a POV located within 3D space/time. Such realizations exhibit a major challenge to the scientific method and its dependency upon observation (mind) and measurement (form) alone as being the only instruments capable of comprehending and/or defining reality. The scientific method is dependent upon the construction and revelation of fact, yet every contextual framework (POV) will change and so must every observation/definition/reference. Yet science is just one methodology amongst many that can be intuitively triggered to reveal the truth that reflections (fields) of both a lesser and greater magnitude of Consciousness do exist. 

The intuition is a method used to synthesize consciousness into a single impulse by intertwining and thereby melding, energy, light and information into a single focus or force. This process is typically driven by a need/desire to bring into fruition a concept (theorem) often held close to one's heart. 

Emotion (energy-in-motion) is at the heart of design. Emotion (meaning) describes the quality of an original pulse (heartbeat) that has given form to the meaning of fullness, i.e. meaningfulness. Creation is "felt" in the heart and provided a purpose by virtue of the mind. This single impulse is both felt and construed as being "one in the same". To return these energies back to their source is an act of unification. Design represents this reflection in a symbolic manner.

This all encompassing and synthesizing force is a metaphor for an unknowable and unifying strength purposely turned inward in order to be intuitively felt and symbolically experienced by means of design. 

Design brings forth an awareness of one's multidimensionality. Design brings forth the qualities of a feeling that is intuitively uncovered and emotionally expressed in a symbolic form. Design gives precedence to this synthesizing process by affording the observer an opportunity to change one's POV within a endless sea (field) of eternal modification, i.e. consciousness. The common Source that brings together all that can be thought, desired, felt and configured is a force that is focused upon expressing its Oneness by means of its own virtues.

Design allows for the relationships that bring forth the concept of a multidimensional consciousness made accessible by means of the intuition. And only by virtue of the intuition can a state of harmony be comprehended. The unit (Source) is a multidimensional and conceptual construct composed from a fusion of qualities intuitively observed, experienced and felt by means of design. 

The intuition will color what is observed and experienced. Images change and disappear before a mental framework shaded by the feelings of the moment. The symbols remain as the context alters in reference to the situation at hand. Connections intuitively felt and subconsciously understood await re-cognition and an image-ining within the constraints of 3D space/time. The imagination brings into comparative formation (hologram) the desires and needs of what is intuitively felt. It is all part and parcel of what it means to be a designer.
