Episode 21


Intuition and Knowing Your Worth


Kelly Covert


We address the following questions in this episode--What is intuition? Is one’s Inner Voice ever mean or critical? How do you encourage people to get in touch with their intuition? How do we encourage or shut down intuition and communication in kids? We talk about creating meaningful relationships with your children instead of letting rules dictate the relationship. Kelly shares about creating a family mission statement.


  • Intuition is that inner voice/wisdom
    • We all have intuition
    • It’s a Divine part of who you are
    • We just need to take time to listen to it
    • Intuition is never mean or critical—that’s our ego, which comes from our head
  • How do you encourage people to explore their intuition:
    • Listen to your inner voice
    • Find practices that get us still enough to hear it
    • Journaling (or verbally processing) to get our of your head
  • How do you encourage intuition and communication in kids?
    • Lead by example
    • Ask the right questions
    • Put the relationship before the punishment or judgment
  • How can you tell the difference between intuition and fear?
    • Intuition is never mean
    • Inner mean girls and critical voices are egocentric
  • What’s your superpower as an HSP?
    • If you listen deeply, you can hear other people’s inner voices, and you can help people connect to their inner voice. I have amazing ideas for other people that come to me through Divine Inspiration
  • “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”
  • What would you tell your younger self?
    • You are enough. You don’t have to try so hard
  • “My inner voice is loving. It knows my worth, and that I am worthy. It guides me. It’s powerful, encouraging and it can show us the error of our ways.”
