Is Intuitive Design Considered Cheating?

Halloween is right around the corner. Who wants to hear a spooky story? I see dead people! No I don’t – just kidding but I do see colors. Is that weird? Images of color groupings constantly flash before my eyes when I’m at a clients house. Come read my story …

About a year ago I had an acquaintance who happened to be a psychic. I know some of you are already looking for the next blog to read because this is so weird but don’t leave yet – hear me out. The story gets pretty cool.

We got together one day and she decided to read me. Now I’m the biggest skeptic in the world so my guards were up and my arms were folded – defense position as they say. Now since we had just recently met at the time of the reading, she really didn’t know diddly-sqaut about me but she started right off the bat saying that I saw colors.

“What?” I said. “What do you mean I see colors?”

“You see colors!” She repeated. I thought to myself that this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! She continued by asking me what I did for a living. I told her that I’m a Color Expert and I design color schemes for homes.

“There ya go!” she said. “What do you mean there ya go!” She repeated “ I TOLD you  – you see colors!”

Oh my God! Is this crazy lady is right? I had to sit down for a minute and digest all of this. Do I really see colors? Let me think. I am a Color Expert – yea so what! I do choose color schemes VERY quickly – so what right? So how does this all fit in? I don’t know! I had to think about this for a few days or weeks before I can even address this craziness. Until …

Ok. Here’s where it get’s weird. Are you still with me? What I’m going to tell is really spooky and I hesitate to even share this side of my personal life but what have I got to lose – nothing.

Last year my cat Mary was very sick. She had some badly infected teeth and the infection just spread throughout her body. I had to take her to the Vet of course and had her checked out. The Vet put her on antibiotics and sent her home to rest.

That night, after Mary saw the Vet my psychic friend was in the area so she came over just for a quick visit. Oh and I forgot to tell you that this “friend” told me she also had healing powers – you know where they lay hands on you, concentrate and suddenly you feel great the next day? So she said.

So she came over and I told her about my day and what happened to Mary. She asked if she could put her hands on Mary and “heal” her. Really? I’m saying to myself!! I didn’t know if I should laugh or kick her out of my house!

“Sure” I said, “Go ahead and heal her. She’s not feeling well tonight so let’s give it a go.”

We sat down at the kitchen counter. Mary on my lap half asleep from the trauma at the Vet and my friend close to her on the next chair. I have a look on my face like – well you can just imagine.

I wanted to know how this shindig works so I asked. She told me that she would put her hands on Mary, Mary would get warm and then she’ll be healed. Oh and Mary would tell her when enough was enough. “Are you kidding me?” I said to myself!

Already committed at this point I agree to proceed. I’ll just humor her, let her do her spooky spooky on my cat and tell her have a good night and never see her again. Sounds safe right? Wrong.

She and I were sitting on the chairs at the counter with our knees touching. Mary was on my lap. She puts her hands on Mary’s head and slowly moves her hands down the back of her neck onto her back. She did this several times.

I’m keeping a close eye on Mary just waiting for her to take a chunk out of her hand when all of sudden (this is where it gets weird) Mary starts feeling really warm to me. It’s only been about a minute in this production and I feel Mary getting really warm! What’s this?

I look down at Mary to make sure she’s ok and there it is … yellow … and a lot of it! I SAW an aura of yellow all around Mary! It as a bright almost white yellow that projected about 3-4″ all around the top of Mary! I was amazed, frightened and intrigued all at the same time.

How was I seeing all this yellow but more importantly WHY was I seeing all this  yellow? It was about a minute later when I suddenly found it difficult to breathe. “I can’t breathe!” I told the psychic and then I heard her say, “We’re done.”

“We’re done? What the heck just happened and did you see all that yellow?”

The psychic replied, “No I didn’t see the yellow. You did.” She then packed up herself and headed for the door as she said goodnight. Mary walked upstairs to go to sleep on a bed somewhere and I was standing in the kitchen for a while trying to process what just happened.

So what did happen? The psychic came in, touched Mary, I saw yellow and it was done. That was it!

The next day, I woke up and ran to Mary to see how she was feeling. She was fine! Not quite 100% but at least a 85%. Did Mary get “healed” or did the antibiotics that the Vet gave her just kick in. Who knows for sure but Mary made a full recover … I didn’t.

Two years later Mary is still going strong. She has a few old age issues which is normal but I’m stilling trying to process how and why I saw yellow. Yellow symbolizes so many things but that night, I felt I saw her healing.

Shortly after that night my friendship with the psychic ended because it just go too weird. I sat down with myself and put two and two together and realized that if I can see auras, I can probably “see” more … which was true. That’s another spooky story in itself.

I sat down long and hard after that night really thinking about what happened. I started paying very close attention to what I see and what I feel both at work and around people. Once you become aware of something, you really hone in on it, as least I do.

I continue to see colors at my clients homes. It’s like a button that I can turn off and on. As I walk in, look at the home and talk to the client as color images appear before my eyes sometimes right before the clients says, “I was thinking about purple for this room, a light purple.” I respond with a “Sure! That sounds like a great idea!” letting the client think THEY were the one that came up with the color choice but I had already “seen” the color when I entered the room.

Let’s just say that out of ALL my clients over the years, which are in the hundreds now, I only had to adjust about three colors in a clients color palette. That’s pretty darn good if you ask me. Does seeing color help my career? Yes. I once saw an entire color palette for a 6,000 square foot home as soon as I walked into the kitchen – right down to the third level of the home. I could have just left for my office, picked the colors there and returned later that day to show her the new color scheme for her home but it doesn’t work that way of course.

I think it’s super cool to see colors and now looking back to when I was a kid and started scribbling on all my walls with crayons, I guess I saw colors back then and I know for a fact that my Mom saw red.

It’s weird how life works out sometimes but it’s up to us to be aware of everything. Sometimes we get so busy with life that we don’t pay attention to “us” when the “us” is pretty cool. So stop, slow down and listen to yourself. It’ll be at that point many questions will be answered. The mind a rest is a busy one.

    Freaky! But you obviously have a special skill for choosing colours, so don’t question it – just go with it! 🙂
