the will of one's words

Hello, all.
If I listen to my mother carefully, I can be able to grasp the will of my mother's words. (by myself)
I was wondering if "the will of my mother's words" is natural and available in English? (in fact, I want to say I can be able to understand my mother's will).
Thank you.

    It is not natural - I am not sure what it means.
    Everything is available in English, however, only some things are acceptable. :)

    No, you can't use it in this way.

    A more straightforward sentence would be:

    If I listen carefully, I'll be able to understand what my mother wants (me to do).
