Dr. Orloff opens this book with the statement: “We are the keepers of an intuitive intelligence so powerful it can tell us how to heal.” Dr. Orloff includes dream interpretation as an important part of intuitive development. If you believe that we are all born with intuitive abilities and that there is a strong connection between mind, body and spirit, you’ll enjoy and learn from this book. Dr. Orloff presents five practical steps that she uses in her own life to develop the power of intuition to help heal from illness:
- Clarify your beliefs
- Be in your body and listen to its messages
- Access inner guidance
- Sense subtle energy
- Listen to and interpret your dreams
Dr. Orloff devotes approximately half of Chapter Four to dreams and continues to touch on them throughout the book as she discusses the fifth step: Listen to Your Dreams in every chapter. In addition to the basics on dream interpretation, she discusses types of dreams and how to use their messages to heal.
According to Dr. Orloff, intuition can be a critical tool for self-diagnosis, pain control, immune response and recovery from acute and chronic illness. Intuition can assist us with coping with anxiety, panic, depression and other emotional issues. Dr. Orloff believes that intuition can bring about breakthroughs in these areas even when traditional psychotherapy has failed.
Dr. Orloff presents her topic in a relaxed, friendly and colorful manner. Her style is as much storyteller as it is teacher. Intuitive Healing is required reading for anyone who is ready to apply dream interpretation to personal and spiritual growth.
