We begin that exploration in this essay by introducing a novel technique, yet an ancient approach to inducing intuition—heart awareness. I've compiled many resources on the subject of heart awareness--see

The HeartMath Intitute has done a lot of laboratory research confirming the subjective impressions discussed here. Our approach is focused on learning self-validation of intuition.
The commonalities in the group’s dreams coincide to reveal information and guidance about the target person’s dilemma. At the same time, each individual dream reflects something analogous to that dilemma within individual dreamer.
