With the popularity of meditation, never before has being an intuitive parent been so possible. Today’s fast-pace technology-base world provides you endless insights, tools and benefits for better parenting, yet your mobile phone, email and especially social media, equally over whelms and distracts you constantly, disconnecting you from yourself and your children you love the most.
Taking some time out for you to de-stress (even a few moments) clears your energy, mind and emotions allowing you to make better intuitive parenting decisions. Now is the time to start trusting your intuition like never before, to create a greater connection with your children that other parents can only dream about.
Intuition is about really connecting to yourself; a deep feeling in your heart and your gut that something feels right or wrong. Intuition shares with you what you are experiencing deep within. As your intuition grows you will hear, feel, and experience your intuition guiding you.
A gentle whisper at first and as you use it more it becomes ever stronger. Imagine the clarity and self confidence you will experience as your intuition becomes your greatest friend.
Accept – where you are right now and where your children are at right now
Harvard Medical school tells us that ‘stress puts the body and the mind on edge. It floods the body with stress hormones. The heart pounds. Muscles tense. Breathing quickens. The stomach churns.’ Anxiety or stress, is the major road block to living a fulfilling life, relationships, family, career or business.
The more frequently you can listen to your intuition the better Children are masters at reading your energy. If you are being honest with yourself and most importantly with them, they will feel it instantly.
Your children will not only sense your honesty and congruency, they will begin to revere and respect it.
Clarity – of what you really want for your children
Clarity is paramount to making better parenting decisions. Now is the time to take some time out just for you to become still, to become clear. Connect now to yourself, heart, mind body and soul.
Take a few moments, minutes or even more. Sit quietly or lay down. Begin by letting all your thoughts surface. Positive, negative and neutral. Now use your mind’s eye to scan your body from head to toe. Gently give permission for all of your emotions to present themselves. Again, positive, negative and neutral. Follow these steps and then take a few deep breaths to really let go. Take a moment and visualise your thoughts and let go of all your emotions, good or bad, gently into the earth.
Love – it’s really time to start loving yourself like you love your children.
You can’t love your children if you don’t love yourself. It’s time for self love. Who do you love the most in your life? In most cases your children. Imagine your children who you love unconditionally. Remember them at birth or other joyful times. Now breath love into your heart for yourself. The more self love, the more love you can have your children. Making more choices based from self love, instead of fear, will create better intuitive parenting outcomes.
Choose – make your parenting choice and be proud of it
Now you have cleared your mind, emotions are in your heart. It is time to make your parenting decision. Start by feeling your heart. Does it feel best to speak to your daughter about not finishing her homework tonight or tomorrow morning before school? Or should you reconnect with your son before you make sure he tidies his room before he goes skate boarding with his friends? After feeling your heart, feel your gut. Does your gut feel light or does it feel heavy? Trust that feeling in your heart and your gut always. I promise you it will serve you well.
Trust – you have made the right decision
Congratulations. You stopped over-thinking and made your decision. It takes courage to trust your intuition. Stick by your intuitive decision and enjoy the rewards. Remember, your intuition is telling you how to be the best parent you can be today. If you stay open and trust, your intuition will guide you to even better intuitive parenting decisions tomorrow.
