Because I myself learned how to be psychic, I totally knew what to expect in this initial exercise. But what happened after the fact literally blew my mind. It was AMAZING!
The first picture she tuned into was an image of me, taken ages ago.
Sadly, she didn't describe the image at all as far as you might think it appears to your logical, analytical mind. However, because she was tapping into her intuition, I understood what she was seeing when she described a multi-colored butterfly. I immediately felt that she was reading me and my energy, as I have an affinity for butterflies and these new meditations I've been doing have been literally magnetizing butterflies into my life - I see them everywhere now. I told her this, and told her not to be discouraged, because in my mind she was tuning into my energy. Whenever you begin to tap into your intuition, you WILL get a different set of imagery than what you'd expect to be "normal," because it's not "normal" - it's a completely unique way of seeing things.
She went on to do a few other exercises with really fun and interesting results, and I loved that she had an open mind and a sense of humor. She even got some amazing direct hits, which was super cool.
When I got home later that day, though, I realized she was tuning into something even deeper and possibly even more complex than what I'd initially surmised.
My husband and 4-year old son were watching TV and had been drawing with the new markers Ivan got. And I was floored - the pictures (see above) were of BUTTERFLIES. I asked Ryan what time they had started drawing the butterflies, and it turns out it was the EXACT TIME that my student was tuning into that picture of me. Ryan added that Ivan had enthusiastically said, "Let's draw butterflies, Dad! You do it!" which is funny because Ivan doesn't know how to draw butterflies yet, so he was the art director, so to speak. He's never asked us to draw butterflies before, either. This was the first time.
So, while this student didn't know why she got an image of a butterfly when tuning into an envelope holding a photo of me, it makes complete sense in a subtle yet complex, unique and amazing way. Isn't that so interesting?
The more open minded you are, the more amazing this whole world of intuition and psychic awareness is. We all have the ability to tap into it - we just have to be open, excited, and not afraid of our own power.
And to that I say, YAY!
