How to Tune In to Your Mother’s Intuition
Intuition comes in many forms. It communicates in different ways to each of us. As in JoAnne’s case, “Mother’s Intuition” is especially important in keeping our kids safe, healthy and out of trouble. Always best to heed its wisdom!

Symbols - Intuition often comes to us in symbolic images. It is often said that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” You might receive a symbolic impression of a rocky road if you choose “Path A.” If you choose the alternative “Path B,” you may see a clear, smooth path in your mind’s eye.
How Can You Tap Into It?
Meditation is helpful. However, most of us moms don’t have the leisure of sitting down to meditate for 20-30 minutes. Try sitting quietly for one to five minutes, taking slow deep breaths. If that still feels difficult for you, take a quiet walk by yourself.
We often think of intuition as coming unbidden. However, we can get really helpful information from our intuition when we ask open-ended questions similar to the ones above. Try phrasing it like, “How can I…(help my child, be happier, find a wonderful new job?). Or simply, “What is the right next step?”
Intuitive answers don’t usually come immediately. They come when you least expect them!
What Are Some Easy Techniques?
I have a lot of video intuition techniques on my website.
Here’s a quick one to try:
If a decision or idea feels heavy, boring or draining, that’s your intuition telling you to move away from that choice or not make it in the first place.
If a decision or idea feels exciting, interesting, or has energy, that’s your intuition telling you to go in that direction. That way points you to more success and happiness!
Intuition is always encouraging you to open up, to try something new, and to be the best you can be. It consistently points the way to success. We all want a sure thing, a guarantee that the risk we take will work out okay. But life isn't like that. It requires that you develop faith and courage so you can grow big enough emotionally and spiritually to live your dreams and be a happy mom.
