Do mothers have a telepathic connection to their children?

For those who argue that telepathy doesn’t exist, there is one relationship that may give them pause: That between a mother and her child. Who hasn’t seen a situation in which a mother just seemed to know what her baby needed or that her child was in trouble even when she had no logical way of recognizing that fact?

Many mothers report that after childbirth, they know their baby has awoken moments before the baby can make his or her cry heard. Others know instinctively what the child needs at any given time. Still others note that their body rhythms seem to naturally adapt to the sleep cycles of their child.

That bond does not seem to weaken as children get older. In fact, in many cases, that bond strengthens. Parents report knowing the instant a child is in trouble, or sensing that they need to check in on a child who has been quiet for far too long.

You’ve likely heard the term ‘a mother’s intuition.’ It refers to the fact that mothers seem to sense the moods of their children and can often pick up on minor nuances, such as words not said, to build a clearer picture of what is going on with their child.

Since a mother is biologically connected to her child during the pregnancy, it is not a stretch to believe that there were strong energetic connections built between the two as well. While the umbilical cord can be cut, it’s more difficult to cut the energetic ties that bind.

That’s not to say that it can’t be done. There are cord-cutting exercises that can be done if you do find that you want to sever the energy that flows between you and another person. However, the bond between other and child ┬ácan be useful while the mother is raising her children since it helps her to anticipate their needs.

As time passes, the child may begin to notice that he or she can also intuitively sense things about the mother. After all, telepathic connections can work both ways. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
