Interpreting Your Intuitive Information

Illustration of an example of intuitve informationNancy Smeltzer, MFA

When I first began on this healing journey in 2004, I began to be flooded with sensory perceptions that were not from my physical senses.  While I have rather well developed intuitive skills now, I am one of those people who has not known her whole life about any special abilities. Having taught science for 27 years, I had been trained in the concept that if what I was receiving wasn’t measurable and repeatable. it didn’t count. So, it was very exciting for me as my intuitive abilities began to emerge.

Learning to interpret what I was perceiving was a bit daunting at first, as there was no comparison with what I knew from past experiences. I was working under the mentor-ship of two people who didn’t have evolved “psychic” perceptions, but who ” just knew” things. So they were able to validate what I was experiencing. With practice, I learned my own ways of interpreting what I was getting. The following speaks of my own path towards developing my skills.

After about two weeks of working with them, I began to hear Gaia . She, for me, is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine, Unconditional Love, and a sort of organic computer that runs the Earth. At first, I could hear answers to simple yes/no questions.Then, I began to be flooded with various States of Being. Having experienced what that sensation was like, I could then go back and ask for the Gaia commands needed for somebody else to access that State, assuming that there was no blockage of stuck energy in their unconscious mind that would prevent them from being in that State. These Gaia commands  are phrases  that are given all through our pre-natal development. Those commands continue through out our lives after birth.  It’s just that most of our intuitive abilities get socialized out of us by family and friends. I found it interesting that my clairaudience or ability to hear intuitively was the first sense I developed, since my physical sense of hearing is my least developed.

Accessing my intuitive sight or clairvoyance was a much longer process. At first, I saw behind my closed eyes, a bright field of vision with little clear blobs with dark outlines that look like floaters in your physical eyes. I learned to interpret that when I saw this blob it meant this, while a series or stacks of this shape meant something else. As time went by, what I was seeing was more coalesced like what is shown above in the illustration that I made. Then, after awhile, the scenes that I was seeing became dark and looked more like sonograms, or radar maps of a hurricane in the Caribbean. Finally, after about four months of work, I woke up one day and could see as well behind my closed eyes as I could see with them open.

Sometimes, however, when it comes to intuitive visual input, I know that I am perceiving something, but I can’t interpret it. I liken those experiences to what it would be like for a caveman to suddenly be dropped into Times Square in New York City. While he would be able to recognize people, dog, horses, and other animals, much of what else he would be seeing would have no meaning to him, although he could clearly see what was before him. It would take experience for him to put his new landscape into a context and understand what he was perceiving. For me, sometimes I have to be with a new scene for awhile, some times I use other abilities to know, and sometimes, I just ask the Divine, “What’s this?” If I’m ready to understand, then I will know and understand eventually what I’m seeing. (The longest I’ve ever had to wait for an answer was a year.)

During this early time of study, my kinesthetic abilities were kicking in also. Sometimes, I can just “feel” that something is so, especially something dangerous, when the hair stands up on the back of my neck. These situations were often confusing, because there was no obvious danger present, but fortunately, I have learned to trust those moments as they have saved me a lot of grief when I have looked back on that situation later. Danger there was, but not always of a physical nature.

All of us have intuitive abilities that can be developed over time. While most peoples’ aptitudes mimic their physical senses, and thus are easier to develop, there are some people who get their intuitive information in some unusual ways. One person I know, who swore up and down that he had no intuitive abilities, we were able to utilize two tympanic-like membranes that he had on his chest. (think – frog ears.) One was for information coming from outer dimensions; the other from inner dimensions. Another person I know sends out waves into  the electromagnetic plane and interprets them as they come back, much like a bat does echolocation. She gets what she calls “nimages” in that she just knows how something “looks”. It took her a long time to trust that what she was getting was real, but with practice, and lots of feedback, she is able to interpret accurately her way of getting intuitive information.

So, the takeaways from this posting are that we all had intuitive abilities before we were born, most of us turned them off soon after birth, and with training, practice, feedback, and cleaning up whatever blocks of stuck energy that you may have in your unconscious about being with your intuitive knowledge, you too, can develop your own way of “knowing”.

 When have you ever had moments of knowing something when you had no reason to know it? If you dismissed it in the moment, why did you?

My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
