5 Steps to Develop Your Sparkle – Seeing Abilities


Do you see sparkles? Or, do you want to see sparkles?

Here are some exercises to help you develop these abilities.

1. Meditate. Meditation gives your spirit, mind and physical self a chance to connect. There is no right way or wrong way to perform meditation. It is only important that you are able to relax and focus your mind. When your mind starts to wander, notice it, and then re-focus. As you practice meditation on a regular basis, you will notice the existence of your own spiritual energy. It is the connection to your spiritual self that opens to intuitive abilities. By strengthening the connection to your spiritual self, you will increase of your intuitive and psychic abilities.

2. Present Moment Solitude. Steer away from distractions that keep your mind occupied. Know when you are aware of your surroundings and cherish those moments. This helps develop inner mental accuracy and focus. Appreciate a beautiful scene of nature, or the sound of natural sounds, like the chirping of birds, the crunch of footsteps in the snow, etc. These natural resonances can enhance intuition and psychic abilities.

3. Listen. The act of listening is important in increasing psychic awareness. After continuing this exercise for some time, you will begin to notice an increase in your overall awareness, which affects your level of intuition.

4. See without Looking. Many teachers call this softening your vision.

  • a. As you sit outside, especially around sunset, gaze at a distant bush, bed of flowers or tree. Soften your vision. By this, I mean while looking at an object, relax your eyes, so that you really do not see it anymore. But you are still seeing in a non-descript way. You still can see the bushes, but you do not look at it too hard. This gives your spirit a chance to show you sparkles, lights and other colors that the physical eyes do not see. These colors and things are always there, but humans do not normally look for them. They are not part of our regular world, so the conscious mind filters the vision out.

  • b. This can also be accomplished at night, after you turn off the bedroom lights and adjust your eyes to the dark. Lazily look around your room. Do not try to make out the shapes and figures. Just relax your eyes and only see.

    5. Ask to See. You are constantly surrounded by loved ones who have passed away, spirit guides, angels, and other loving entities. They are always supporting you and bringing your information. They show themselves to you. Give yourself permission to see them in a spiritual vision. Ask them to show themselves to you in a way that you are able to recognize them.

  • Children Seeing Sparkles


    Does your child see sparkles?

    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.

    Hi there!

    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!
    Karen

    Hi Karen~

    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…

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

    Out of Body? Get Grounded


    Are You Out of Body?

    These days of transitions are surely interesting: Up one day and down the next; in the money one week, broke the next; total comprehension one moment, not a clue the next.

    How do you cope with it?

    Most of us tend to go out of body. We deal with the day-to-day stuff, sure enough. But when it comes to being present and aware, totally in charge of our lives, we just aren’t available. In fact, a large group of us–yes, even the “meta-people”, are electing to float in astral space, than to be present in the physical.

    If you are not understanding my meaning, try these exercises:

    • Sit quietly for five minutes only paying attention to how your body feels. Do your shoes pinch your feet? Is your waistband too tight? Are you breathing shallowly or in the full abdomen? Are there any aches or pains? Take stock of your body parts…Check in on the liver: what is it saying? Are your lungs in good working order? Are you on good terms with your heart?
    • Now, go to the pile of bills or papers you’ve been collecting. Look at them. Act on them. Make a plan for payment. Make phone calls concerning the bills, if need be. File your papers. Organize or throw away. Take charge of that all important area of your life. This may take several hours. But it helps get you in your body.

    If you have trouble staying in the task, or you let your mind wander in other directions, then you probably are living most of your life out of body.

    Usually, a major event that is difficult to deal with, sorrowful or extremely painful will throw you out of body. It’s the ultimate way of disconnecting with the thing that is difficult. Over a period of time, it’s important to deal with the situation. Then you are present and physically aware again. But many of us keep finding ways of not dealing.

    You may recognize someone around you that is very spacey or in “la-la land”. I’ve heard the discription “she is airy-fairy”. That person has successfully disconnected with physical reality.

    Some may argue they are striving to be more spiritual and connected with the Spirit Realm. But my question is this: Why bother being in the physical body? Haven’t we agreed to experience the third dimension? Aren’t we spirit–being humans?

    Then it is important to blend the three aspects of self: body, mind and spirit. We become a whole person, perceiving reality–totally perceiving reality. 

    Blessings until next time…M

    What Next, after Avatar?


    I predict the Tim Burton remake of Alice in Wonderland will be the next outrageous movie this year.  Not just an updated version of an old yarn, but truly a fascinating depiction of Alice all grown up and unhappy with what society expects of her. (Something everyone can relate to at least once in their lives.)

     Tim Burton, director and producer of memorable movies such as, Sleepy Hollow, Big Fish, Charlie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and  Beetle Juice,  has pushed a great intellectual story to its edge, both visually (3-D, and in realist terms) and metaphysically.

    Many paranormal and psychotronic gurus have dissected the plot and symbolism of Alice in Wonderland for many years. The story speaks to us on a much deeper level.

    Going down the rabbit hole, is a huge metaphor relating to retreating into the unconscious, or dream world. The descent is associated with the land of the Goddess, under the forest and streams. The farther she falls, the deeper Alice goes into the subconscious mind and slowly looses the ability to discern reality from illusion.

    Needing a gold key to go through a special door, following the White Rabbit, represents a search for spiritual truth. The rest of the story is a continuation of that search: Something that is becoming more important for us to recognize, every day.  

    As the movie presentations this year move into more and more 3-D technology, the spiritual and metaphysical world opens up to us. The 3-D door actually helps us shift into the realization of multi-dimensionality. We expand our perception, and look at things in a new angle.

    Good.

    It’s about time we opened our eyes to what is illusion and what is reality. Those who have eyes will see; those who have ears will hear.

    This version of Alice in Wonderland, I predict, will be one of the highlights of this year, spiritually speaking, since the fascinating and mystical Avatar.  And many of our younger generation will “see” and “hear”.  

    Due to be released on March 5, 2010, check it out. I certainly am.
