Intuitive Children; Who Are They?

All children have the natural intelligence of intuition(II). Some children are highly skilled or gifted in this talent in the same way that others have a talent for math, music, languages or physical dexterity.

Since each of us has a preference in how we relate to the world, the book, Raising Intuitive Children, shows how children with an intuitive learning style and intuitive intelligence view and interact with people, tasks and the environment.

Children with intuitive intelligence have traits that manifest in different ways along a continuum of normal skills to gifted talents:
  • Children who learn through feelings and process information kinesthetically. (Intuitive learning mode)
  • Children who are creative and artistic and intuition drives their motivation. (Artistic drive for exploring and creating, entrepreneurial)
  • Children whose intuitive intelligence is like a radar reading other people and understanding them. (Empathy and interpersonal skills)
  • Children who have intuitive episodes like dreams or a flash of creative insight.(Deep insight, precognition)
  • Children who are psychic. (Awareness of non-physical worlds through all senses or a specific sense.)
Intuition is the common denominator of these talents, and all children have the same intuitive capacities. Like musical prodigies and math geniuses, children display their intuitive talents differently. Some educators call the intuitive kids the right-brainers! (Better than no-brainers, I guess)

Connection is the key!

There is much we can do as parents to direct expressions of inventive and creative thoughts, help empaths deal with emotional overwhelm and establish resilience, face fears of ghosts. Children with intuitive intelligence, challenged by cultural systems which do not know how to connect with or teach them, need permission to follow their personal path and optimize their talent. We can give that permission and model it for them by developing our intuitive parenting. We also need to become intuitive parents.

Our truest parenting success is the feeling of resonance with our child, the connection of hearts, the meeting of minds congruence.
