UPDATE: My book Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Kids is now here.
I’ve had several people reach out and ask me about seeing sparkles, especially young teens or mothers of smaller children.
Usually, the child starts seeing sparkles at the age of three or four, and over several years, gradually starts to see them more often. So by the time they are around the age of eleven, it is very common to them. The younger children view the experience as normal, and may not say anything special about it, thinking that everyone sees them. Older children, can be ridiculed, accused of making up the whole thing, and shy away from sharing the experiences. Then I have known about some children that run and jump to try and catch the sparkles. Many parents are confused and a little frightened about the whole thing. After the first question I received by email, I wrote a blog about it. You can access it by going here: http://thegobetween.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/children-seeing-sparkles/
Since that blog article was published, search engines are connecting others to me as time goes along. So I felt the need to present more, in depth information about seeing sparkles. And perhaps give a little background about what might be going on. Understand that this is just my perception on the topic, as given to me by my spirit guides and higher self.
NOTICE: ** While explaining sparkles, it must be understood that I am referring to the spiritual concept of seeing an energetic substance – not a physical vision, or eye problem. And I encourage anyone who thinks their situation might be physical in nature to see a medical professional concerning it. **
What Do Sparkles Look Like?
Sparkles can be seen by people as small flecks of dust, iridescent particles, flashes of light, blinking clear lights and something called “static,” such as the static or fuzz you might see on the television when the station has gone off the air.
Many have said they see them better at night, in the dark. While others (especially, smaller children, see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. These people have said they occasionally see black or dark sparkles, but not very often. Sometimes they spin around and blend together. Usually, it is seen with eyes closed as well as open.
Have You Ever Seen Fuzz and Particles?
I thought for a long time that I just couldn’t understand seeing them. And wished I could see them so it would be easier to relate to my clients who have witnessed it. Then after going back into my childhood, I realized I have always seen sparkles. However, I would not have called them that. To me it is more like hazy fuzz. If I could describe it, I would say it was the substance that matter is made of. It looks like manifesting energy to me.
Just What Are Sparkles: Lifting of the Veils
Now that the veils are lifting from our awareness, and the energies are opening up to other dimensions; we are able to recognize things so much more. The separation between the earthly realm and the spiritual realm is beginning to open up and blend. The thing is that the sparkles (or energy field) have always been there: just as the aura around a person is always there, but many people cannot see it. Only after they have been instructed as to what it is, and how to see it, do they really recognize it.
The way I understand, the particles that present themselves like sparkles are very visible. But it is not distinguished by the brain. It seems to be part of another dimension and not something that we are accustomed to seeing, so it does not register in the brain as real. Only after you understand that it could be a possibility can you begin to identify it.
Another way to think about it is the spirits of those who have passed away are always around us. But we might not be able to see them. Sometimes, you can see movement out of the corner of your eye. You turn your head, trying to see it physically and it disappears. It works the same way with sparkles.
Some children believe the sparkles are angel lights. That could be. There is a new resurgence of a phenomenon called “orbs”. They are large, round balls (at least larger than the sparkles) that float around, usually at night. Quite often they show up in photographs. They seem to represent spirit energies or entities of one kind or another and like to be around nature. So the thought that sparkles could be angel lights makes sense. I am given the information that the sparkles are “arranged” by angels in a manner that we can appreciate, and possibly connect with.
If you close your eyes very tightly and rub them with your hands, then open them, you see sparks of light. This is a natural affect due to the pressure. But with energetic or spirited sparkles it works the other way around. You must lose your focus, not wanting to focus on anything. It works better when you are in your bedroom at night after you turn off the light. (I usually close my eyes as soon as the light goes out, because when I was a child, I could see these particles moving around, forming designs. It scared me so badly that I learned to close my eyes to keep from seeing it.) but it is a great experiment to try.
Turn out your light. Lay in your bed with your eyes open. After your eyes get accustomed to the darkness, everything will have a haze, or film covering it. You might even see it moving around. Yes, you might even think you are going crazy! But believe me, you are not. The more you play with this concept, the more you will experience.
Indigos and Crystal Society
Kids That See Sparkles
This whole phenomenon is becoming more familiar to society. Many other things dealing with the paranormal is coming to the surface. Many children and young adults are showing more abilities to understand, and exhibit psychic and mediumistic tendencies. These children, known as indigos or crystal children, are usually highly empathic and don’t know how to deal with it. These young folks are introducing the change that is springing forth even now. Those of us who are in the paranormal and metaphysical fields are here to be guides for the way-showers, and help them keep grounded. Then they are able to assist us all in the transformation of the world. I believe the kids seeing sparkles fall into this group of indigos and crystal children. And we must do much more to be of assistance.
