Part Two –My book about guiding psychic children.
I am sharing bits and pieces of the writing of the book I will probably call Guiding Psychic Kids, Does Your Child See Sparkles? Helping Parents that Have Paranormal Families.
The book actually started because of the awesome response to one blog post I had several years ago. It was a question from a mother that found me by an internet search along with the answer I gave her. She was trying to find out if her daughter was really seeing sparkles and if that was normal. One thing led to another, and here is a full blown book in the making. I believe there is a need for this information, and am blessed to be given insight by my spirit guides regarding paranormal and empathic events with children and their families.
Here is the beginning of Chapter 2, Maintaining a Safety Net. It is a rough draft of some of the information I am including in the Psychic Kids book that I am writing. (For part one of the book go to Subtle Bodies, Guiding Psychic Kids Blog)
Chapter 2 — Maintain a Safety Net
Centering, grounding, and protections
~~Another key to raising healthy psychic children is to help them become aware of their energy, and to recognize when their finely tuned systems are ungrounded or processing the psychic stuff around them. Some simple energy tools, practiced daily, usually do the trick.
Centering, grounding, and protection tools:
- Grounding~~ One of the first things to do is to have them create an image that connects their body to the center of Mother Earth. This gives kids a sense that they are rooted and plugged in during their day.
This gives a feeling of being in the body (!). They have a place to send stuck or pent-up energy, instead of it bouncing off the walls. Have them create a tree trunk, a bean stalk—or any fun image that works for them—and have it come out of the bottom of their feet all the way down through the floor and deep into Mother Earth. Most of us in the modern world have forgotten our deep connection to the planet. A “grounding cord” is a good solid reminder that we are always in communication with the earth below.
- Having kids become aware of the energy bubble all around them is also beneficial. Their bubble—or aura—defines the space around their body and is a direct reflection of what is going on inside. If their bubble is vibrating at a color that isn’t in harmony with them at the moment, they can decide to change it if they want. They can pick a color that is fun for them and change the color for different activities. This is not only a fun game for them, but also helps them get to know their own energy.
Help them appreciate that they are in control, and responsible for their own body and energy. They can also clean their bubble with a magic sponge and make their bubble bigger or smaller so it’s the right size just for them.
- Kids need to know how very sacred their bodies are (I call it the body temple) and how lucky they are to be here, experiencing life from the limitless wisdom of their body. But getting kids to get inside their bodies, even for just a moment, can be challenging to say the least!
All kids are psychic, and you may feel a big responsibility on your shoulders just with this realization. But remember that in any case, kids are kids no matter what. Your job as a parent is simply to support them, give them love, encourage them to be who they are, and remind them often that they are much bigger than what the outside world often makes of them.
The book should be ready for sale by mid-April 2013, so look for that announcement soon. Until then, you should begin by reading my book Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics.
I’ll be blogging soon with more excerpts and the progress of Guiding Psychic Kids!
