Creating Sacred Space: Exploring Your Secret World, by Shaheen Miro


ShaheenBlogKids Growing Up Psychic Series — Creating Sacred Space: Exploring Your Secret World, by Shaheen Miro

Creating sacred space springs from a deep-rooted need in each person to retreat, for a safe haven to relax, unwind, and re-connect. Finding sanctuary is something we all search for at different moments in our lives, it is an instinctual desire to recharge our spiritual battery by connecting with our higher self, and Divine energy.

As your psychic child progresses, becoming more aware of their abilities, and of their identity in the “real” world, the need for sacred space becomes essential. Moments of solitude, and retreat will give them opportunity to slough off accumulated energy, grounding and centering them, and keeping them protected. Having a sacred space to call their own gives your psychic child a sense of ownership, which empowers them.

Children have very vibrant, glowing auras, like a lantern on a dark night. The aura of a psychic child is a little more vivid, as they are open to many levels of the subtle worlds. This light catches the attention of many types of energy, some intentional, and others unintentional.

Being inundated by energies, impressions, and psychic experiences can exhaust your child on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Creating sacred space, and spending time in stillness will disentangle them from these overwhelming energies. At its core, sacred space is a form of psychic protection.

Sacred space can come in many forms. It can be a physical place that your child goes to whenever they like. It can be a space that they learn to create wherever they need to… outside, in their bedroom, in a play area. Or it can be a mental place that they can daydream in. I prefer to do all 3!

Creating Sacred Space

Creating a permanent form of sacred space can be a rewarding experience for you and your child. This is an exercise in self-expression. Your psychic child will gather the things that he or she sees fit for this sanctuary, and in doing so they will go deeper into their spiritual world.

Find a space where your child can establish a permanent sanctuary. This can be a corner in their bedroom, a small office, or a playhouse. It doesn’t have to be big, just enough space for them to gather their things, and spend some quality time.

Part of the sacred space experience is for your child to have freedom to choose what goes in, and what doesn’t. Make sure you are comfortable with this process. Obviously within reason! But this process allows them to establish a strong energetic connection with the space. Creating a unique energetic blueprint that fits their natural vibration.

Once you have identified the space you will want to physically clean the area, and then spiritually cleanse the area. Try sage smudging or spraying rose water in the space. One form of spiritual cleansing children love is making sounds… bang a drum, play the tambourine, ring bells, and sing in the space!! This will break up the old energetic pattern and begin to reestablish the space.

Now is the fun part! Allow your child to pick their favorite things to go in the space. Blankets, toys, artwork. Whatever speaks to them! I find adding any kind of artwork that your child has created establishes a wonderful aura of peace, and feeds their imagination.

Explain to your psychic child that this is their area to explore, play and even relax. You may want to spend some time in there with him or her.

Try talking to them in the space. Color, and paint there. Create mandalas. Do guided meditations. Read stories in the sacred space. Take naps here. Say your evening prayers. You want this to be there go to space when they need to go inward!

Even when your child is sad, or angry, suggest that he or she go into their sacred space and think, or color, or play

Sacred Space On the Go

Consider a way for your child to make sacred space even when they are traveling, or at a relative’s house. This will instantly ground their energy, and give them a way of slowing down, and working through any energetic information they are receiving.

Your child may already do this in the form of carrying around a special blanket, stuffed animal, or wearing a favorite outfit. This is a way for your child to establish their energy in places that feel foreign to them. Keep this in mind when approaching the subject.

Get on board with your child’s favorite blanket or stuffed animal. Talk to him or her about the object. Help them make a conscious connection between the object, and their form of sacred space. Ask them what the object means to them? Ask how the object makes him or her feel?

Objects take on an energetic pattern that feels safe, and familiar to your child. This object becomes a type of amulet of protection, and security. Their connection to this object becomes both psychological, and psychic. I find this especially with stuffed animals.

Introduce your child to stones and crystals. Children are very sensitive to the natural world, and working with stones becomes very rewarding to them. They have an instant way of linking into their energy. And they can benefit from their properties very well because they are much more open, and receptive.

Take your psychic child to any local crystal shop, and allow them to interact with the small, tumbled stones that you find there. Ask them to pick out two or three that really speak to them. Make note of the names, and energetic meanings for your personal records. Though that may not really concern your child… they know what they need on a very deep, honest level.

You can even gather the stones in a small bag, traditionally called a medicine bag. This can be worn by your child around their neck, or tucked into their backpack or travel bag. They can play with the stones and even tuck them under their pillow before bed.

These stones elicit, and establish a certain energetic field around your child. The more he, or she works with them, the stronger the link becomes. Whenever your child is traveling, they can pull these crystals out and instantly connect and create sacred space.

As a child I was introduced to medicine bags. I use to gather little objects, some given to me, others found in nature. I would place them in my medicine bag and carry them with me. It gave me a sense of belonging, connecting me to my inner world. I always felt safe with my trinkets.

Be sure to ask your child about their crystals. Ask them who they crystals are, and what they do? See what answers you get. This is an insightful way to understand energy. Psychic children a very wise because they have no reason to sensor their impressions.

Trees, and large boulders are great for children to establish temporary sacred space. Trees especially love children, and often call them energetically… which is why many children climb in them, sleep in them and hug them. As a child I had a tree friend, whom I spent many afternoons with!

Be sure to allow your child to use their imagination here. Ask questions… what is the tree’s name? What is the rock’s name?

Exploring Inner Sacred Space

Imagining a special place in your minds eye is a pretty common meditation technique. This form of internal sacred space creates an area for your child to go whenever they want. If they cannot sleep, or if they are feeling particularly out of sorts they can close their eyes and go to their inner world.

Rainbow Tree Meditation

Stand tall. Stretch out your arms, and legs. Your fingers and toes. Stand in the form of an “x” as if you are going to do some jumping jacks. Tighten all your muscles, and limbs. Then release them. Now you feel little prickles tingling around your body.

Now sit cross-legged, or lie down on the floor. Close your eyes and let yourself slip into a gentle breathing.

Let your belly rise, and fall. Count your breath. Breathe in, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Breathe out, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Do this for a bit to create a rhythm.

Let your whole body feel at ease. You can twitch and move if you need. Just relax.

In your mind you begin to see a long, winding path. It goes deep into the woods. On either side of the path you see large trees, plants, and all sorts of beautiful flowers blooming.

Make your way down the path before you. Wander curiously into the woods. Take in the all the colors and sounds. Smell the flowers.  Touch the trees. Taste all the sweet fruit that lines the path.

Eventually you will come to a large tree. Much taller and older than all the others. It’s leaves glow with a golden light, and it has flowers, fruits and leaves of every color. This is the Rainbow Tree. Give her a big hug!

Now make your way around the Rainbow Tree’s trunk. Wander around her trunk doing two or tree circles around. Finally come back to the front of the tree. Knock tree times and wait.

In a few second a secret door will open in the trees trunk. Step inside. This is your special, sacred space. This is your place to play, imagine and create. Begin to explore this place. What does it look like? What does it smell like? What sounds do you hear in your secret world?

Imagine all the things you want here. Anything your heart desires can be here. Your favorite foods. Your favorite music. Your favorite books, and art. You can have your favorite toys here. However you want it to look in this secret world is up to you!

Whenever you want something to happen here… just imagine it. Poof… there it will be. Or use your magic wand, or your special crystal. Or just say, “I want…”  Let your sacred space be whatever you want it to be!

Come here as often as you like.

When you are ready to leave. Go back through the door, out the tree trunk, and gently close it. Hug the rainbow tree, and walk around it 3 times. Say thank you, and goodbye.

Now begin to make your way back down the path to where you began. And when you are ready, wiggle your toes, and move your fingers. You can open your eyes gently, and come back from your adventure.

Remember your psychic child has a beautiful gift, and the most important thing for them to learn is to be confident, and secure in their own identity. This will allow him or her to use this gift confidently. Playing and imagining are essential for exercising these psychic muscles.

Try creating your own sacred space as well! Explore the psychic world together.

Until next time…

INSTRUCTORS: Melissa Leath, Patti Kessler, Gerry Beard, Meredith Melvin, Rose Vanden Eynden & Joanne Franchina.

* PRE-REQUISITE: Our mini-camp is for the kids, but before for your child can attend, we want to see you—their parent or guardian—at our event, Parenting the “New Kids”

http://yourinnercompass.com/id220.html (or see below) –so you’ll know what your child will be learning and get helpful tips on how to support them at home.


 

psyCampPARENTING THE “NEW KIDS” Presentation & Panel Discussion with Melissa Leath, Patti Kessler, Joanne Franchina, Rose Vanden Eynden & More

Is your child’s imagination unusually active—playing with imaginary friends, seeing angels, talking to Grandpa (who passed away a year ago)?  Does your child seem to have uncanny abilities—knowing that someone far away is sick or sad, talking about things happening before they happen?  Is your child highly sensitive—with physical or emotional symptoms that come and go for no apparent reason, and the doctor is baffled?  Have you heard of Indigo, Rainbow, or Crystal children, and wonder whether there could be something to this, and could it apply to my child?

If so, you’re not alone.  Many of today’s parents have stories about their kids having “paranormal” experiences.  And many practitioners in the spiritual, holistic wellness, and metaphysical fields would agree that more and more children these days seem to have abilities that were considered rare only a few decades ago.

This evening, you will hear a presentation and participate in a moderated, interactive panel discussion.  This is a rare chance to get answers to your questions from a variety of perspectives—including experienced metaphysical practitioners who are passionate about helping society’s young people learn how to work with their natural intuitive and energetic abilities, and panel members who are not practitioners but have been there before you—so you can feel more comfortable and confident about what may be happening with your child, and so you can learn how to help the young people around you as they grow up with these spiritual gifts.  Whether your child is very young, or a young adult, you will leave with a better understanding of how you can support them.

Friday, June 19, 7-9 pm

PRICE: $45; pre-registration required. Early registrations (two weeks prior to the session) $40.  Register your child for the Spirit Mini-Camp for Kids event on or before the day of your Parenting event and receive a free copy of Does Your Child See Sparkles? by Melissa Leath ($10 value).

HOSTS/PANELISTS: Joanne Franchina & Rose Vanden Eynden.  Guest Panelists: Patti Kessler, Melissa Leath & more.

NOTE: This event is open to any interested adult.  It is also a pre-requisite if you want to register your child for the Spirit Mini-Camp for Kids at Inner Compass—the camp is for the kids, but before your child can attend, we want to see you at this Parenting event so you’ll know what your child will be learning and get helpful tips on how to support them at home.

What Do Sparkles (and Orbs, and Spirit Lights) Look Like? By Melissa Leath

Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

Some smaller children see them during the daylight, even outside in the Sun. Others see them swirling in patterns, sometimes in different colors. Yet others see them only at night.

Spirits, angels, and guides show themselves to us all the time. But we don’t always recognize their presence. Adults especially have a difficult time seeing spirit energies. But the New Kids are so wide open that they see these energies easily.

Parents usually report confusion and fear concerning their young children seeing such things. The kids are usually seeing “sparkles” and orbs at the age of three or four, and it lasts at least several years. They view the experience as normal, and may not say anything special about it, thinking that everyone sees them.

The phenomenon gets stronger, and by the time they are eleven or so, it is very…

Becoming Spiritually Mature as a Psychic Reader


Rose

Becoming spiritually mature requires a giant leap of faith. Along with that faith comes the realization that you are capable of making good, sound decisions. Having a responsible attitude is to know you are ready for spirit to move you toward the right decisions.

Growing in spirituality and psychic abilities requires the same learning process as growing from childhood to the teen years and on to adulthood. By the time you have matured to adulthood (spiritually speaking), you have learned how to trust in your own abilities.

With knowledge comes responsibility. Being spiritually mature involves great responsibility. Psychic readers are responsible for the information they share with their clients. To assist their clients properly, they need to be educated and mature enough in their spirituality to be a responsible source of information and service.

There is no excuse for wrong action. You aren’t the child you used to be. You have been given access to wisdom; you must use it correctly. Now is the time to adopt the attitude of responsibility. By your attitude, you assume a position. An attitude of responsibility implies that you are capable of adult action. As you grow in spirituality and develop your intuition and psychic ability, you realize the importance of your gift. This gift is meant to be used in love and to uplift everyone with whom you are connected.

Befriending Spirit Guides (Imaginary Friends Aren’t Make-Believe) by Shaheen Miro


PsyKidsShaheen

Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

~~ Melissa’s Note~ Shaheen has done it again! He has shared another concept dealing with psychic children. This is the next installment of our series Kids Growing Up Psychic. ~~

Every person is born into this life with a beautiful collective of celestial helpers. These are our spirit guides, angels, loved ones, and ascended masters. Some of them are always present, and others float in and out of your life when they’re needed.

As a beautiful glowing ember in the universe, your psychic child has a special connection to the spirit world, meaning their celestial helpers are much more accessible to them. You may find your child talking and playing with an “imaginary friend”, or recounting elaborate stories with their “imaginary friend”.

This friend is probably not imaginary at all… it is his or her spirit guide! Pay attention to the stories, and the encounters your child is having with their friend. Listen to the details of their appearance, and even their name. These details are not just make-believe; they are very real things that your child is experiencing with his or her psychic senses.

What are Spirit Guides?

Every person has a spirit guide! Your child’s spirit guide is a wonderful, life long friend. A friend that will never waiver or leave. The friendship of a spirit guide is a powerful, soul level connection. A spirit guides sole purpose is to guide your child on their life path.

Your psychic child’s unique perspective of the world allows their spirit guide to be much more accessible. This is a gift because they can talk, communicate and really get to know each other. If this is cultivated, and nourished it can continue, like all aspects of psychic unfoldment, into adulthood.

A spirit guide will watch over, guide, and protect your child. A spirit guide will disperse spiritual insights, and synchronicities into your child’s life. A spirit guide has a unique understanding of your child’s life path, and what he or she is meant to fulfill.

The powerful thing about a spirit guide is their unique vantage point on life. They are not all knowing, nor are they without opinions. But they do see things more clearly and they remain much more objective. This relationship will help your psychic child feel more safe, grounded and connected as he or she moves through life.

How to recognize the presence of your child’s Spirit Guide

Your child’s spirit guide will show up when he or she needs them the most. Guides often appear when there is extreme changes, stress, or something unsettling ahead. They also appear when a child is “losing time” or engrossed in their own little world of play and imagination.

Sometimes a child will hear their name being called, either from a distance, or right before sleep. This is typically a guide trying to get their attention. It isn’t something to be alarmed about. Always ask the question, “Does it sound friendly?”

Guides will sometimes appear as flashing lights, sparkles, bubbles, or other glimmers of light, and color. When I see spirit guides they usually appear as blue or white lights. Shadows or silhouettes can be the presence of a sprit guide as well ( I would do a little more investigation).

Dreams are a common meeting place between your child and their spirit guide. Dreams usually become doorways to the astral world, meaning that your child can explore other places, times, and different facets of the Other Side. Many stories have been told of a child visiting the Other Side with their guide showing them all around.

Your psychic child probably has a good idea of their spirit guides name, and appearance. Ask them who their friend is, and what they look like. See what details they give you. They usually have a name instantly!

Spirit Guides name and appearance

It isn’t uncommon for a guides name to be the same as your child’s, or to be some other name that you or your child favors. Really a guide doesn’t mind the name used to call them. They just want to develop a working relationship with your child to best help them.

Spirit guides tend to appear in one form, but they can change that as well. If they are seen as a sparkling light, they can also be seen in a human form. But some spirit guides will choose to visit as an animal, or some other creature. It is all about what your psychic child, and the spirit guide feels safe with.

That is the foundation of the spirit guide relationship… feeling safe. A spirit guide is a friend, protector, and guide. If your psychic child is feeling uneasy about their friend then you should explore more.

Remind your child that they can ask their spirit guide to come however they wish!

Some children will even cling to a favorite stuffed animal…which becomes a life line to the spirit guide. There is energy in everything… so take this into consideration when exploring your psychic child’s actions.

Communicating with a Spirit Guide

Let your child know that it is okay to talk to their spirit guide. They can play, and chat and explore together. The best way for a relationship to develop between a child and their spirit guide is through talking.

Talk out loud. Ask questions. Give opinions. Confide in them. Try this yourself!

A spirit guide will find a way to communicate. This can come in so many different forms. Your child may see symbols, visions; hear reoccurring songs, verbal communication, feelings, etc. It can be very unique, and constantly changing.

When it comes to working with your psychic child, and helping them to develop a relationship with their spirit guide…. Have an open mind and be an explorer!

A fun exercise for your child is to write letters to their spirit guide. Write a letter and leave it under their pillow, or near a tree. Tell them to ask for some kind of response from their spirit guide. This can be a really fun game. Something will appear!

Spirit guides love creativity. Any kind of creative activity will bring your child closer to their guide. Encourage them to draw and paint. Maybe ask them to illustrate a portrait of their guide!

Another great technique for connecting with a spirit guide, and the Universe is using a divination system. Tarot, or some type of oracle card. This can be really fun to do with your psychic child because they will see connections in the images that you never even thought of. Let their imagination run wild!

A few more things

I encourage you to talk with your psychic child. Being open to the psychic world can be confusing at times, but when nurtured and approached with healthy boundaries it is a gift. Communication is the number one way to make the psychic world safe, and accessible.

It is easy to disregard your child’s experiences as imagination, but remember that imagination is the pathway to intuition. What your child creates as they play, most likely has roots in a very real, spiritual experience. So ask questions. Never judge. Just ask more questions.

And as always… HAVE FUN!
