Your life will be transformed as you uncover the natural joy of motherhood and 'tune in' to the instincts you were designed to use, through this invaluable resource. Lyn shows you how to leave unnatural and unnecessary dogma and doctrine behind. You will finally find the answers that work for you...managing pregnancy and birth; sleep; behaviour and cooperation issues; sibling relationships; work and money; partners and much more. It includes a Foreword by Dr Suzanne Roffey, Lecturer in Educational Psychology, and endorsed by NAPCAN (National Assoc. for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect) "Intuitive Mothering" liberates mothers. It helps us realise motherhood is one of the most spiritual journeys taken in life, yet western culture teaches mothers to tune out the innate and powerful survival instincts required to make the journey whole and pure. 'Tuning in' to instinct seems to have become unnecessary because our lives are dominated or controlled by unnatural forces such as schedules and procedures. "Intuitive Mothering" enables mothers to 'tune in' from the word go.
It shows us how to be wonderfully okay with who we are as mothers, and it's a journey that can only be learned from one mother to another. When we are tuned in to our instinct, we genuinely feel calm and in control. When we discover this reality, we recover the joy of mothering and it becomes a natural, beautiful experience. "Intuitive Mothering" will inspire and allow us to, at last, educate society into better understanding who we are. Through this book, mothers can feel united in their quest for uncovering the natural joy of motherhood, providing understanding, confidence and a deep sense of knowing to themselves, their children and the world around them. I am the proud mother of two little angels: Jasmine and Angelique. We are blessed with a beautiful, devoted husband and father, Duncan. It was through the challenges I faced as a new mother, that the reality of modern mothering became blatantly clear to me. In many ways, we are being discouraged from the joy of true connection and fulfilled mothering because we are being encouraged to ignore or disregard our instincts and intuition. "Intuitive Mothering" simply flowed through me. It became an incredible light to my life.
It's almost as if my instincts wrote the book through me. I found myself living a completely transformed life: answers almost landed in my lap without needing to search, our whole family lived in peace and understanding - communicating and connecting automatically. It was like magic! I then felt deeply compelled to share this gift and now I feel I have received the ultimate gift: "Intuitive Mothering" is transforming lives all over the world just as it did mine and my families'. I hope you enjoy and value this precious gift. We can only create new possibility tomorrow if we create new possibility today! "Intuitive Mothering" uncovers the natural joy of motherhood and helps you 'tune in' to the instincts you were designed to use, leaving unnatural and unnecessary dogma and doctrine behind. Written for expectant mothers, new mothers, mothers of toddlers and mothers or carers of young children through to the pre-teen and even adult years, this book will help you discover practical solutions, confidence, clarity and connectedness that will last a lifetime.
'Tune in' to your instincts and find the answers that work for you on: pregnancy, birth, sleep, behaviour and cooperation, sibling relationships, work and money, partners and much more.
Lyn McPherson grew up on a small acreage just outside of Johannesburg and moved to Australia when she was eleven. From the youngest age, she wrote, keeping a detailed diary every day of her life. After spending her teenage years in Adelaide, she moved to Melbourne, backpacked around the world and landed in Sydney, where she fell in love with and married Duncan, her best friend of fourteen years. Lyn began a degree in psychology then switched to nursing, while continuing to write on the night shift. After she and Duncan had two children, Lyn wrote her first book, Intuitive Mothering (New Holland, 2006), which guides mothers to 'tune in' to their instinct and intuition, and 'tune out' the distractions that so often prevent truly joyful, connected, self- determined mothering.
