A dream about experiencing a strong sense of intuition suggests a need to trust your instincts in waking life. The meaning of intuition may be more subtle than that, however.

It may indicate that you already know the answer to a problem you're facing, but are hesitant to act.

Alternatively, dreaming about someone else demonstrating intuition could mean that you're seeking guidance or wisdom from others. It might also reflect your feelings of being understood or recognized by someone in your waking life. The common themes among these variations encourage self-trust and seeking wisdom, either internally or externally.

Intuition is a somewhat complex and intriguing dream symbol to to give you a single meaning for. To know without any doubts, I would have to really get to know the dreamer's background and current environment.

Dreaming of possessing a heightened intuition can be a manifestation of your unconscious mind's desire to harness the power of the preconscious, the realm of Freud's topographical model of the mind where latent thoughts and feelings reside.

Likewise — It may be a call to delve deeper into your psyche to unearth these hidden insights. Conversely, dreaming of another's intuition could signify your subconscious recognition of the Other's wisdom, in Lacanian terms. It might suggest a yearning for external validation or a projection of your own intuitive capabilities onto another. Both of these dreams underscore the importance of acknowledging and integrating the wisdom of the unconscious and preconscious into conscious awareness.

Dreaming about experiencing a strong sense of intuition is a spiritual message from your higher self, urging you to trust your inner wisdom. It's a divine nudge to listen to your soul's guidance, which is often drowned out by the noise of the physical world. Conversely, dreaming about someone else demonstrating intuition signifies your spiritual journey towards seeking enlightenment from external sources. It's a symbolic representation of your quest for spiritual mentors or guides who can help you navigate your life's path. The common themes among these dream variations are spiritual reminders to trust your inner voice and seek wisdom from others, fostering a balance between self-reliance and communal learning.
