Does Your Child See Sparkles?


I’ve had many people recently ask me about psychic kids and seeing sparkles. So thought I’d remind everyone that my book “Does Your Child See Sparkles? Help for Parents Guiding Psychic Kids” is being used by so many parents and teachers. Not only people with psychic kids, but especially by grown folks that remember having challenges as children.


Empathic and psychic children are seeing things: Sparkles, Orbs, Spirits, and Ghosts. What is a parent to do? Don’t worry; Melissa Leath has it covered. She has been asked by parents about Sparkles (as the kids call them). And she has gone on a quest to find the answers.

This book covers spirit energies, auras, subtle bodies, hyper-sensitive and empathic children and information on indigo and crystal children. There are excerpts from blog articles that started the search for the meaning of Sparkles, along with some of the comments that followed.

Within this book, Melissa uncovers the concept of Sparkles, spirit lights, and other paranormal occurrences and visions seen by children. Are they apparitions or true experiences? Included are exercises to practice with your child, examples to help expand their ability in a healthy and empowering way, and ideas to implement in your families’ daily routine.

“Sparkles” is filled with real life experiences from parents and their children; their fears and victories, along with Leath’s shared knowledge and explanations.

Thanks so much for your interest. Besides the book, you can research Sparkles and Psychic/Empathic Kids here on my blog. ~~Melissa Leath

Some Thoughts on Parenting a Psychic Child


iStockFreeCrayonPsyKids
Psychic Ability is more or less within all human beings. Some – especially children and teens – have it to a greater extent than others. Since they are so sensitive, they need the attention that only parental care can provide.

There are many things you can do for your child to help them feel more balanced and in control of their gift.

Know your child. Be aware of their normal activities, how they usually act on a regular basis. Then use that as a way of comparing any changes your child might have. Pay attention to their dreams, any unusual experiences, or changes in their thoughts about things. Review them regularly. That way you’ll have a good gage to go by to know when your child needs your attention.

Study psychic knowledge, learn the lingo, read up on what psychics, especially teens with paranormal experiences go through. Find out about ghosts and spirit entities. Be ready to address any questions your child might have, and be able to talk like you have sense about the situation. Your child always looks to you for advice and information.

By always being honest and “upfront,” your child will respect you and trust what you have to say. If your child is empathic, they might know when you are upset or not feeling well. Don’t try to hide that feeling from them. Own up to your feelings or any health condition if your child asks you about it. I am sure you want your child to be comfortable with their ability to “recognize” or “pickup” certain emotions and illness. If you act like nothing is wrong, then your child will know that it is better to lie about their feelings than to be true to themselves. This definitely is the wrong message.

It makes them doubt their own natural ability to sense what is happening. Develop an open expression of feelings. Create a home where there is permission to outwardly express this vocabulary.

As a parent, you should be able to recognize the validity of what your children are saying. Yes, kids have very vivid imaginations, and try to get attention however they can. But you know when children are telling the truth by the seriousness, honesty or despair in their voices.
ears
There are some who teach their children to ignore their natural psychic senses and messages, and to forget about ghosts and spirits. These attitudes make it confusing for kids. They get mixed messages. Life becomes difficult for them.

Reassure your children that they are not strange or crazy. Investigate your family, and talk with other family members who might have similar experiences to share.

If understanding what is going on becomes too difficult it may be helpful to see a paranormal counselor, or someone who has worked with kids who have gifts. Be sure to attend as a family to show your support and gain understanding.

Psychic Children and Dreamtime Adventures, by Shaheen Miro


ShaheenSleepingA

This article is another great addition to our “Kids Growing Up Psychic” Series

Dreams, nightmares, and other curious experiences are common for psychic children. When you are sleeping you become open, and receptive to the unseen world. The protective guards that have been thrown up now come down, and it is easy to navigate the invisible world. For the psychic child this is playtime.

Sleep is a time for the body to rest, and actually allows the logical mind to shut down, so that the intuitive self can come through. This is why most psychic children have flamboyant and other worldly dreams. As your psychic child is sleeping, he or she is exploring the levels of the astral world, and connecting with their psychic wisdom.

Some parents will fear these experiences because they feel unable to help their child. Especially when these experiences are frightening, such as nightmares, or strange visitors. But they are all natural experiences for each person, and especially the psychic child. Do not fear this, rather embrace and encourage this!

As a child, and even now I explore the levels of the astral world. The astral world being the energetic levels that make up the physical world, and beyond. There are many levels and layers of the astral plane. Some of these levels are where different spirits reside, and what we would commonly call, Heaven or the Other Side. Other levels mirror reality, and the different thought-forms that are being projected into it.

Some levels of the astral world are purely play… alternate realities created by the imagination. The dark realms tend to be places where negative thought-forms exist, and this is often what we experience as a nightmare.

Children are curious by nature, and the psychic child has a free pass to explore all the different levels of the astral world, and to be receptive to any psychic information that is being sent their way.

Energy is vibration. All vibration happens at a certain frequency. Your psychic child is vibrating at a frequency that allows them to not only access certain planes of existence, he or she vibrates at frequency that allows them to tune into infinite wisdom that is blooming in the atmosphere open to anyone who can tap into its message.

Why do we dream?

Dreamtime is a way of tapping into the fertile world that lies just beyond our consciousness. Everyone dreams to gain some kind of clarity or insight. In my experience I have found a few types of dreams.

Problem Solving dreams are dreams that allow us a creative platform to work through issues, gaining insight and clarity about whatever seems to be troubling the person. Psychic children are constantly inundated by information, thought-forms, and energy that may not be their own. On top of this they are regular children; Children who have mundane issues.

These are the types of dreams we all experience. Since we are not open enough in waking life to experience this kind of clarity, dreamtime offers us a timeout from “reality” to work through issues.

Purging dreams are a unique way to not only work through issues, but to also clear out the junk that is in our minds. Psychic kids experience this a lot as nightmares. Recall the frequency analogy. Your child is vibrating at a rate that allows them to purge these negative, or pent up energies… and often times will be followed by colorful, and frightening sights.

I always imagine these negative things existing somewhere in the Universe that contains them for safe keeping, when we have nightmares we may actually be visiting that place… thus releasing and containing them there for safe keeping.

Prophetic dreams are very common for psychic children because they are so open, that they are actually accessing the information that is happening around them. This is how they tend to know things that they shouldn’t. This can be information about the future, or a place in which they are not, or even past life information.

Astral Dreams are any type of journey that happens in dreamtime. An astral dream could take the shape of any of the above dreams. But most often this will be an experience of leaving the body, and traversing the wonders of the Universe.

Children are especially good at astral dreams, or astral projection because they are not afraid to explore, and they are more use to being out of their bodies, rather than in. This could be because they are new to the world, not quite settled into the “rules” of being here.

Astral dreams can be simple, or very complex. I astrally project often. When I astrally project it can be as simple as being in the room I am sleeping in, or visiting people who are in other places. Or they can be more in-depth, part real world, and part other world.

Dreaming is something that you cannot really explain with clear rules, and regulations. The different types of dreams listed above may overlap one another. There is no way to clearly define them. They may all be happening at the same time. But rest assured that it is a normal experience for the psychic child, and for all of us if we would allow it!

Crystals for Safe Astral Travel

Astra travel, and dreaming can sometimes be frightening to both parents, and psychic children. If your child seems to be having these dreams and you are unsure how to help, creating a safe environment for sleep will add to their sense of security.

Make sure your child has a safe room, free of clutter, or distraction. Any strange lights, toys, or shadows that may appear in the room should be avoided. Keeping things in an area specifically for play is a good option. Even having a nightlight can help your psychic child because it will be a touchstone for them knowing where they can return to when they leave their body.

Crystals are a favorite for children because they can sense their unique vibration. Crystals hold a special energy that can be used by anyone who taps into it. This can offer a special tool for psychic children in dreamtime. Especially for astral travel when your child may be wondering about it.

I suggest using a hematite and amethyst. Hematite is a grounding stone, and creates a special aura of protection. It will keep your child from floating about aimlessly, and allow them to filter through any energies that may be troubling them.

Amethyst is a protection stone, but it works in a unique way that activates the psychic senses. It opens them in a way that brings clarity and understanding. This will be good for your psychic child, as it will help them make sense of what they are experiencing without shutting them off from it.

You never want to shut your psychic child down from their experiences; this will create feelings of fear, guilt and alienation. You want your psychic child to use this gift, and to cultivate a positive connection with it so they can navigate the world fully in their spirit.

Use these stones by placing them near your child’s bed, under their pillow, or tucked somewhere safely under the bed. You can explain to your child that these are magical rocks that give them powers in dreamtime. Remember imagination is one of the most powerful tools for the psychic child.

Dream Pillows for Nightmares

Dream pillows are a special way for soothing your psychic child. Scent has a powerful effect on the psyche, and helps to cultivate certain experiences. Not only are herbs and botanicals powerful for aromatherapy, they also work with the subtle vibrations of the aura.

If your child is having nightmares or sporadic dreaming, create a beautiful dream pillow for them. A dream pillow is a small pillow filled with herbs and botanicals for a certain purpose. This can be an elaborate decorated pillow, a small square of sewn up muslin, or a sachet made of cheesecloth.

When creating a dream pillow you want to use all natural and organic ingredients. Be mindful of your child if he or she has allergies or an allergic reaction to specific plants. Clearly those are not things we want for our psychic children while sleeping.

Mix together in a small pouch the following:

¼ cup rose petals
¼ cup lavender flowers
¼ cup mugwort
¼ cup mint
¼ cup chamomile

You can mix and match these herbs as you see fit. Sometimes using only 3 of the above herbs is necessary. Once you have found the right combination, stitch up the open end of your pouch.

Hold the dream pillow and infuse it with positive intention. Intention is how we direct, and affirm our energy. Setting an intention of peaceful sleep for your psychic child will guide them into dreamtime safe and sound.

Tuck the dream pillow pouch safely inside the pillowcase of the pillow they use most frequently. You can refresh the herbs once a month, or as you see fit. This can be a fun process to do with your child as well. Pull out the art supplies and make fantastic pillows together!

Has your psychic child had any interesting dreams? Maybe a visit from a relative who has passed? Or maybe recounting an outlandish world somewhere beyond the stars?

Listen to these dreams… there is wisdom in them! And be sure to share with us. We would love to hear your psychic child’s dreamtime adventures… and maybe we can help shed light on anything that is particularly confusing.

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.

An Authentic Television Series About Psychic Kids – I Need Your Help


 

iStockFreeCrayonPsyKidsI had an interesting conversation the other day, via conference call, that I want to share with you. It was with a video producer I have known for several years. (His mother is a fellow author, psychic and associate of mine.) He has done many television projects (Discovery Channel and Animal Planet) and independent documentaries. He is associated with a reputable cable television production company.

Anyway, his two bosses were in the conference call too.

Basically, they are looking at the viability of producing a television series surrounding psychic kids (and their parents) in a sincere and authentic way. They realize the backlash the earlier paranormal and psychic kids type shows have gotten. And they have asked me to assist them in this initial investigation as to if it would be possible to film the families of psychic kids —  without exploiting them in any way. (I really like their take on this.) And they asked me many questions about different ways to do it, and other possibilities.

Since I have mentored families of psychic children, and written Does Your Child See Sparkles? they have asked if I could contact some of my clients, mentor students, and parents of psychic kids and find out how they feel about this. Here are some possibilities, with differing levels of exposure that they are considering: 

  1. Film the family and child while I counsel/mentor them, but filmed for television.
  2. Or – Interview them about any mentoring or assistance we have done, create a staged re-creation with actors, and then at the end of the segment show the family (as a way of confirming the authenticity of the situation).
  3. Or – Make the re-creation without the family being exposed at all.
  4. Or – Interview the parent, probably by phone, to get a sense of how they feel as a parent about the televised idea of their psychic children. They want to know any concerns a parent might have. (They really want to know if this is something that could be done responsibly)
  5. Or – Maybe there is another direction we are not seeing yet? Ideas are always welcome.

Please think about these ideas. And see if you (or if you know anyone that) may like to engage in this project. There are many families with psychic and empathic kids that are looking for help of any kind.

I know that if a reliable, caring television program could be reinforced as a teaching tool, then many people could benefit by it. We just have to understand how it can be presented in a way that provides proof of this phenomenon, without sensationalism, and also provide assistance in gaining empowerment for it.

If you or anyone you know would like to help in this project, please get me in contact with them. Let me know. Email me here: psychicintegrity@gmail.com

Thank you so much for your help and good wishes!
