I get so many great questions, either while lecturing and conducting workshops, or through phone conversations and emails. They are so important to everyone, that I’ve decided to start posting some of them that I thought would be of benefit to my readers.
The following is the answer to a question send to me from a woman searching the internet for information about what her young daughter was seeing: Sparkles.
I thought this blog would be a great way for many people to gain from one person’s question. By presenting the email to you along with the answer I provided, I have chosen to change names and some circumstances just to keep anonymity. The woman who contacted me, “Karen” has given permission to share this information with you. And I send my heartfelt thanks and best wishes to her and her sweet family.

I hope you don’t mind my sending this email to you. I found your name on Google while trying to research “sparkles” that my 7 year old sees.
She has been seeing “sparkles” since she first told me about them when she was only 2. She was trying to catch them…jumping up, etc. with her hand opening and closing.
I have asked her for a few years now various questions regarding these sparkles.
She sees thousands of them…all different colors….all the time. Day, night, light, dark, etc. All the time.
She is amazed that I cannot see them. She assumed for a few years that everyone could. Her siblings are teenagers and she doesn’t talk about them as freely with them, since they are skeptical about her seeing the sparkles.
She answers all my questions, freely. I did have her eyes/vision tested and they were fine. I asked her pediatrician and he said she was playing. Kind of an imaginary friend.
If I hold my open hand out, she said they go on my hand. There aren’t any “bad” ones, except she doesn’t seem to like the small black one she sometimes sees. She said they are just round and look like sparkles. They don’t talk, they aren’t “people”.
Can you help explain to me, PLEASE, what she could be seeing. Is this good or bad for her? Are they auras? They seem to be in rooms, but not “on” people, so that puzzles me. Not stronger or lighter on people, just around…everywhere.
My husband is also a skeptic, so I’m not sure what to do. I certainly don’t want to tell her anything to scare her, so PLEASE let me know if you can help me out here with what you think may be happening.
Thank you sooooo much for your time!

Thank you so much for connecting with me. I certainly hope I can bring some resolve to you.
First of all, I feel you are very blessed to have a daughter who is open and sharing with the things she sees or witnesses. I know she is eight now, but as a two year old, she could not possibly make up something like that. Her natural responses to the phenomena is proof enough to me that it is real.
But besides that, I have known other children who see or hear or feel things other than the normal physical things we are comfortable experiencing. It is important to realize that we are all spirits. We are spirits who are really living in a physical body, experiencing the earth plane, or third dimension. Then you start to open to other possibilites. We actually are limited in many ways by our physical bodies!
Have you ever tried to walk through an open door, only to bump into the side of the frame with your hip or shoulder? That is because the true self (spirit being) saw no limitation. But the physical body really is limited by the physical doorway.
Your daughter is not seeing limitation. She sees things of a spiritual-realm nature. It is natural and normal. It exists, whether we see with our physically limited eyes or not. There is a story about the time when there were only natives living in the Americas…long before it was United States. There were men from Europe who were searching for other lands in their ships. They came to the eastern coast of America. The Indians who lived there did not see the ships because there mind had never witnessed anything that represented such a thing. It was totally foreign to them. The brain could not register the vision of the ships.
Several days passed and the leader started to notice ripples in the water…slowly then began to see what had always been there~~the ships.
Our children these days are coming into the world totally aware of the spirit realm. They see no limitation. We must be alright with that, because it shows how wonderfully our human race is evolving!
My daughter was born in 1974. She was raised in an openly spiritual environment. We taught her about communication with angels, spirit guides and loved ones who have passed away. When she was about 30 years old she reminded me that she could see things in the dark atmosphere of night. She described it as looking at a television set when the network picture was not on…gray fuzzy stuff. Only she saw it anytime at night, not when she was looking at television.
When she focused on it, the fuzz started to move and change, then take form. It would shift into animals and scenes that she recognized. Sometimes it was fearful to see, because she didn’t understand some of the things visible to her. They looked scary, like monsters.
It took a long time for me to understand what in the world she was talking about. Even when she explained it in terms I could understand, I still didn’t get it. (and I’m a spiritual medium! ) So for your husband and other older children to question the validity of the experiences, I totally understand. They just don’t “get it”.
But that’s okay. It isn’t important for them to understand. Your daughter knows you believe it, and that is enough.
I believe she is seeing ethereal energy. It is not people’s auras per se, but the same stuff that they are made of. It is just an unorganized form of that energy: pure and simple. Quite a blessing.
As she grows, she may begin to see it change and take form too. I hope she is able to continue to describe these sparkles to you, expecially as they take form. She may be the one to write the book on these experiences.
I hope I have settled some things in your mind. If you have other thoughts or questions, please feel free to write to me again.
I would love to edit your question (to change the identity) and answer to add to my blog. There are many parents with these types of questions, that I’d like to share with…but only with your permission. Is that alright with you? I will not use your names or email.
Many blessings to you and your family…
