Why Do Children See Entities That Are Invisible to the Rest of Us?



Why do children see entities that are invisible to the rest of us?

As we become adults, we develop a different perception of reality. As adults, we are programmed to discard certain images, noises, and feelings as unreal, especially if they are not scientifically proven or socially accepted. Many of us have programmed our intellect to doubt our intuition. Most children have not had the chance to train their perception to correspond with these adult versions.

Many parents teach their children at a very young age to block psychic images. Humans feel better when we all experience things in similar ways. They may tell their children that imaginary friends are not real, and that visions are just bad dreams. This sends a message to the child that they should mistrust what they actually experience, and instead rely on adult reality. It robs children of a sense of self-trust that they will definitely need to find their way in the world.

We all have telepathic abilities and use this as a method of communication to send messages even when we are not aware of doing so. You may think of an old friend that you haven’t connected with in years and in the next day or so you get an email or phone call from them. The two of you connected telepathically (which I like to call the Field of Synchronicity) and this mental “signal” brought about an urge to take action and connect physically.

But many children are experiencing much more than that. They may unconsciously move between both the psychic realms and the physical realms at the same time. They may even recognize parallel universes, alternate realities, and multiple dimensions all layered together at once. They may not be able to distinguish between our familiar third dimension and the many layers of “other worlds”. It becomes difficult to make sense of it all, or to even know that other people do not experience it the same way!

As a result, your child may see spirit beings or entities from other dimensions or realities right in front of their eyes, (not knowing that our “normal” vision doesn’t register this anomaly).

This is not only challenging and confusing for children, but perhaps overwhelming in a more material world where psychic and spiritual phenomena are rarely acknowledged.

Many of these kids are so psychically aware, yet their parents and role models usually are not. So they may develop different types of troubling behaviors to help them cope with their situation, and to teach adults what might be going on with them.

Are You Looking to Develop Your Psychic Abilities?



Over many years, I’ve become an experienced psychic medium through training: classes, workshops, trial and error, my own mishap experiences, sitting in meditation circle. And then gained even more experience when I started teaching classes, workshops, lectures and holding meditation circles. (And guess what? My own trial and error and mishap experiences are the strongest lessons I’ve learned!)

It’s the mishaps and the trial and errors that I want to share with you. They are protocols, practices and meditations that I did not learn from a teacher. Experience and my spirit guides became my teachers.

These are the things that I am sharing with you. These are the things I know work. All I ask of you is to take the time to use them, practice them and dedicate yourself to the practice.

I’ve taught these principals over the past 12-15 years. Sometimes by myself, sometimes with a co teacher. But what I have honed is a specialized system that can take you through the steps, building on each other to a proper psychic that can access spirit guides and information for yourself or others.

Now, if you are interested in some of the virtual classes and workshops I am teaching, look at the Development Meditation for Psychic Abilities (free) It includes a video lesson, guided meditation audio (I’m well known for my guided meditations), article, and interview I gave to Cinnamon Moon. This is the best way to find out how I teach. I know you’re going to enjoy it.

I cover beginning lessons and expand into progressive workshops There is an ongoing version you can use for your sacred time, and a full packet on how to connect with your spirit guides and get a deeper link. Everything is done in a very laid back and comfortable style. I do my best to make it easy to understand, but I want you to do your work and unfold your gifts. Plus, I am constantly adding and expanding my offerings.

If you are on the lookout for exploring your options for self-development, or expanding your practice and growth, check out my Intuitive Arts Learning Center. I’m always available for assistance and if you become a student, you can also join my Secret Doorway Interactive Page on Facebook. It’s great for support and connecting with like minded folks.

Grounding Essentials for Psychics and Mediums


Question: Why would we need to center and ground ourselves if we are ascending?

Answer: I know, we are constantly trying to raise our vibrations to reach a higher frequency space. Some of us call it ascension. Or moving from the Third Dimension to the Fourth or Fifth. (As in the song, Dawning of the Age of Aquarius by Earth, Wind and Fire). But let’s think about this for a minuet ~

~ We, as Spirit-Beings, have decided to incarnate into the Third Dimension to have an Earth Experience. How could we have a physical experience if we were not Third Dimensional? To move up and out of the physical body to ascend to another dimension means we have forsaken the prime directive.

I feel we are to expand ourselves to accommodate higher frequencies while still holding to Third Dimensional Earth. Our bodies can morph or intertwine vibrations to become more than we are now. We have some of the most productive and amazing qualities as humans. And we are only using a small amount of the body/brain potential available to us.

So, how can we ground ourselves here, and still expand into higher frequencies? Here are a few of my own thoughts:

1. Komara, a way of expanding consciousness without blowing apart. Keep your feet together and arms up in a “Y” shape. This opens you to other realms and higher information, such as communicating with your guides, etc. Then stand with your feet spread out at shoulder width and arms down to your sides. This grounds your spirit in the body, making it easier to maneuver on Earth. Use both positions to keep balanced.

2. Use earthing, or walking on the ground barefoot as a way to instantly ground your body to earth. If you are worn out and exhausted from a busy day, or communing with spirit, this brings your energy back asap.

3. Understand why events happen instead of getting caught up in the drama – perspective in all things.

4. Pieces of the higher realms are leaking into our third dimension. Find out where these things are leaking without your knowledge or permission and close them or welcome depending on what feels right for you.

5. Increase your energetic awareness. When you open up to intuitive concerns, you can feel information coming in. Pay attention to it. Know when it opens and when it closes. Be in control of that by putting your focus there.
Balanced energy flows and resonates with well-being. Unbalanced energy leads to dis-ease.

6. Detect Energy from a Higher Vibration. By practicing as a lightworker, and being open to your psychic senses, you have a whole new dimension of consciousness. This is True Knowing in its highest sense.

7. Frequencies of Food, Medication, and Other Factors. In order to stay grounded be particular about the frequencies of the foods you eat. Food is fuel for the physical body.

For example, you know what happens if you download a lot of useless information on your computer. It will crash. Cheaper fuel will cause a car to run inefficiently. Food with negative energy or lower vibrations tears down the physical body and opens it to disease. It can cause problems in your subtle body system, and slow down your evolution.

Processed foods, additives, dyes, hormones, and medications can all be problems for your well being. This is the problem that the energy-sensitive Indigos ran into when they began to incarnate in Earth’s plane. Their sensitive systems were contaminated by foods that don’t resonate with their higher vibration. This is when many had reactions and health problems, such as attention deficit disorder (like an energy failure) and hyperactivity (like energy surges), leading to misdiagnosis and overmedication.

Like the new Indigos, we as adult, hyper-sensitives, our bodies cannot hold the negative vibrations of all of the garbage going in. The “old system” can make us sick. Organic diets hold a much higher vibration and thus are better suited to the transforming body and evolving psychic senses.

A high vibrational diet consists of foods that are ALIVE and that positively benefit the person, as well as the planet as a whole. High vibration means having more light, and thus less density. Consider trying a whole food one-day diet a week. See what it feels like.

Keeping yourself grounded and aware of your own vibrations is the best way to achieve your ascension process and keeping centered.

Many Blessings, Melissa Leath

    Solar Eclipse: 7 Tips for Empaths


    August 21, 2017 marks a very special day for the earth! She is being separated from the Sun for several minutes. You may think this is a mini-event in the scheme of things, but you would be incorrect.

    There is a very sensitive energy field surrounding our planet. It helps us handle emotions and logic, and keeps life at a regular and constant flow. This energy field helps plants, animals, birds, fish, and humans to regulate their existence. And whenever this flow of energy is interrupted or altered in any way, that flow shifts.

    If you are empathic (aware of it or not), you will be effected by this event. The actual eclipse takes over 2-3 hours to happen. And you can experience the most wonderful shifts in nature if you open to it. But if you have been paying attention the last few months, you realize that everything has been gearing up for this event: upheaval on all levels, letting go of unessential things, emotional outbursts, extreme joy, extreme pain – both physical and emotional. So this eclipse has been brewing for some time!

    The Sun and Moon have always been special symbols to me and held magical powers. They represent the delicate balance between day and night. But more than that, the Sun means life to us all. And the Moon is the ability to recognize the time for rest, so the body and mind can rejuvenate. So we need both in regularity. When that regularity is interrupted, we feel the resistance. It is an uneasy sense, and could seem frightful.

    But I feel the intense need for this interruption. Seems that nature is saying, “pay attention now”. Could we be too complacent in our lives? Could we be ignoring important aspects in our world? Look at the possibility that you should re-evaluate how your life is going.

    1. Know the Facts Research the event. Many people from ancient times have sewn negative thoughts about the eclipse. It was a time of much fear, since nature was not responding in a normal way. Whatever was not understood was feared. Know that you have better information now. This is a logical event that falls in the realm of progress through the universe. We have better ways of understanding it, and know it is not the end of the world.

    2. Gather Energy You can gather a large amount of positive energy during the eclipse. It brings the best of yin/yang (feminine/masculine) aspects. So it will help balance your personal energy and perspective. To do this, simply breathe with intention.

    3. Experience the Full Eclipse Be open to the full effects of the eclipse. Find a place out in nature – such as an open field, clearing space in a wooded area, public park, or even your backyard that you can sit on the ground. Plan this ahead of time so you have everything needed. (solar glasses, water, snacks, etc.) Use a meditation known as Mindfulness (or Present Moment Awareness). You can keep your eyes open or closed, but only be aware of what is happening at the moment. You will be surprised at the way things change around you – shadows, sounds, breezes, etc. This is the full experience!

    4. Be Open Instead of trying to hide and shield your energy, do the reverse. Open all subtle bodies (connected to the chakras) to feel and sense everything the animals are feeling, and be aware of the changes that the oncoming darkness brings. Have prepared affirmations to benefit your experience. Here are some I will be using:

    a. I am willing to feel all of nature during the eclipse today.
    b. I send love to all living things.
    c. I accept the possibility of change in my life.
    d. I know I am continually safe during this experience of awareness.

    5. Alone or With Friends? Decide ahead of time if you want to be alone during this experience, or share it with family and friends. Either one is great, according to what you want to do. It will also depend on how your friends and family will respond to the eclipse. Are they just out for a fun, good time? Or do you think they will share in your wish to experience it?

    6. Eclipse Glasses Be sure to bring your eclipse glasses. And make sure they are approved and certified as safe to use for this purpose. Check out this information by USA Today.

    7. Watch the Sun or Things Around You? This eclipse is a very rare event, so you really should see the full eclipse! It will be awesome, and I can’t wait to see it! But do you think you want to watch the whole thing? It probably will last for 2-3 hours before the full cover and after. So plan to use much of this time just being present and aware. You can look up at the Sun (be sure you have the glasses on! each time you peek) from time to time. And the rest of the time just pay attention to things around you.

    This Solar Eclipse is a great time to use your empathic abilities to their full extent! Don’t try to hide yourself, but embrace the ability you have. This chance may never come again. And you will gain better control of your abilities.

    Please comment in the space below with your experiences. I would love to know what happens for you!

    Peace! Melissa Leath http://www.MelissaLeath.com

    Does A Metaphysical Workshop Certification Really Prepare You?



    Many people these days are very interested in being of assistance and working in healing fields. This could include Psychic or Medium Readers, Astrologists, Tarot Readers, Energy Healers, Coaches, Consultants, Spiritual Counselors, Ministers…the list goes on and on. It seems that with the shifting energies of the Universe, many are becoming aware, enlightened and knowing they are to be of service.

    But let’s stop and think about this for a minute. Of course, being of service is a noble and important aspiration. But in doing so, you have to be aware of your limitation as far as assistance goes. You must be prepared. You must have experience.

    You must be in the field, training under supervision for a certain period of time before you have the confidence to carry on by yourself.

    I remember when I was ordained in the ministry of a spiritual church. I felt very inadequate…and I had been in training for well over 10 years, with on going classes in spirituality, meditation practices, metaphysics, work within the church, internship, countless hours of reading countless numbers of books. And all of a sudden, I had license to be a minister. To minister to people with problems, situations, challenges.

    “Oh my God,” I said, literally. “Oh my God, am I really ready for this?” In one moment, while being ordained, I was finally aware of the responsibility involved with this opportunity! “What if someone comes to me for help with a really BIG PROBLEM?”

    I had been working with people for years, assisting in spiritual counseling and mediumship. But I was awestruck. What if I told someone the wrong information? What if….what if…..what if…. I felt like I had been pushed out without any training.

    But after I continued my work, serving my clients and following my ministry (my heart led passion), I realized I had been given plenty of training and experience over the years. If I ran into a problem I couldn’t work with properly, I had a battery of associates and colleagues to rely on. I realized I didn’t have to do it all. I didn’t have to do it by myself.

    This sort of vocational trauma came after I had been sufficiently prepared. What happens when you have only attended one workshop, given a certification and turned out to do the work?

    I’ll tell you what happens: You may feel so unprepared that you fall away from your chosen vocation and wander around not really knowing what to do, never really fulfilling your heart’s desire, your chosen path.

    You may end up making severe mistakes. You may present yourself as capable of performing a service to your clients. But they don’t know you are without proper experience. Sooner or later, the faith and trust your clientele give you is lost.

    Be sure to continue in your chosen field after your first certification. But go slowly. Take your time. Work with a mentor or someone you respect in the same field. You know they say, ‘Wine is not done before it’s time!” Wine actually has to ‘work’ for a period of time before it is ready to drink. Otherwise, you get a very bitter taste!
    Be the glass of fine wine. Be the best you can be in whatever you choose to do!

    Charge for the Gifts of Spirit?

    Know Your Worth, and Be Worthy of Your Knowing
    Taken from Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern-Day Mystics, Chapter 8 The Bottom Line

    Some students ask me: Is it right to charge for one’s services as a medium? After all, it’s a gift from God, isn’t it? It seems like you are cashing in on God’s goodness by taking money for it.

    I love that question and I grappled with it myself for many years. When we were working within the Spiritualist Church, an associate medium got a small booth at area psychic fairs and charged for short readings. I was aghast! I felt she was disrespecting the spiritual gift by charging for her readings.

    Several years later, I went to a psychic fair just to see what it was all about. There were readers and vendors, and several people giving lectures about various spiritual and metaphysical concepts. The attendees were hungry for information. Some were unfamiliar with the concept of spiritualism, but still were interested in finding out about spirit communication.

    The short readings that attendees paid for introduced them to spirit communication and psychic abilities. I realized that there are other valid ways to present spiritual information as well as in church. Educating the public about spiritual concepts can be a respectable way to make a living.

    Let me ask you this: Have you ever bought a beautiful painting because the artwork and colors were so special? Have you ever had your transmission rebuilt by an expert mechanic who had been recommended to you? Have you eaten at a five-star restaurant and tasted the exploding flavors of the chef’s specialty? Or bought an engaging musical recording by an aspiring singer/songwriter? All these people have God-given talents as well. Would you suggest these artists just give you what they do, without any kind of compensation? If you’ll notice, the artists and chefs and mechanics that are extremely talented and sought after receive the highest pay.

    Being a medium, psychic or intuitive is no different. Many readers have been led to do this spiritual work full time. It is their ministry. Ministers from many religions receive a salary, and earn their living that way. Do not judge anyone who is asking for payment as an even exchange of energy.

    When you go back to the thought and understanding that everything is energy, then money starts to make more sense. I believe that all service is worth a fair and even exchange of energy. Many times that means paying money for what services you receive. Other times, an exchange of materials or other services is appropriate. Many people embrace bartering as a means for this.

    If you intend to make a living as a psychic or medium then you will want to address the idea of accepting money as a way of exchanging energy. Look around at other readers to get a good idea of what the market in your area is doing with charging for services. Be sure to stay within that market range. Many readers provide two different time frames for readings: one long session for full readings (usually an hour, depending on the type of reading you do), the other is a shorter session (to address specific areas or follow-up from another session).
    PsychicIntegrityCover2x3

    Be sure to let your client know what the time frames are for each session, and then adhere to it by setting a timer. Starting on time and ending on time is essential. You create the time standard by the way you deal with it. I usually set my timer five to ten minutes before the session is over. I tell the client (before the session starts) that the timer will go off in time for us to wrap up the reading. That way they will know ahead of time when the session is done. If you honor the time set for the session and tell your client when it is over, then they will honor your time also.
