045: Using your intuition to make parenting less stressful with Katie Beecher
International medical and spiritual intuitive, Katie Beecher joins me to talk all about intuitive parenting. Katie has been endorsed by and featured in Goop and many other publications. She is also a Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 30+ years, a former Special Education teacher and mom to 21 and 27-year-old daughters.
Easily tap into your intuition:
Think of intuition differently than you ever have before. Katie uses Carl Jung’s definition of God within which to me means an all-knowing force that loves you unconditionally and completely. It is always available for guidance and support and is always protecting you, like a perfect parent, which so many of us never had.
The directions are to write (not type) out a question, thought or feeling to your intuition. Wait to see what you hear and feel in response and write that down. Then write back. Wait for a response again and write back. You can continue for as long as you would like. I use this technique to talk with my guides, my body and also loved ones on the other side when I want more intensity than just doing it in my head.
The writing provides focus, connection to the body, mindfulness meditation, and grounding. My only rule: don’t overthink. Just put down whatever you get. It’s life-changing and it saved my life. If anyone would like to write to Katie and ask her any questions, she’d love to hear from you. Katie shares other ideas on her Facebook page.
