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.

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!

Shaheen’s Note: I am so excited to feature my wonderful friend, Melissa! She is a gifted medium, writer and teacher, and she is here to share her expertise and experience with the psychic world in our new Series of monthly articles titled, “Kids Growing Up Psychic”. This is the second article in the series… enjoy!

Most empathic and psychic children (and some adults) are constantly “open” to energy and spirit entities. This may include angels, spirits of those who have passed away, spirit guides, and experiencing the emotions of living people, places and conditions. Sometimes the kids do not know that the emotion they are feeling belongs to someone else.

This can make them very confused.

So, how does this happen, you might ask? Let’s see if we can get a better understanding of this by looking at Empathy, the Aura, and…

Experiencing the World with Your Psychic Senses, by Shaheen Miro.


BlogGypsyGirls
(Part of the “Kids Growing Up Psychic” Series).

Melissa’s Note: I am so happy to introduce to you my dear friend and fellow metaphysician, Shaheen Miro. He has agreed to be Guest Writer for my Blog and we, together, are presenting a Series of monthly articles called “Kids Growing Up Psychic”. Enjoy this very first, fascinating article!

Did you know that you came here as a spiritual being in a physical body? You are a beautiful, vibrant and divine spirit that is here to experience all sorts of wonderful, and sometimes crazy things. This world is meant to bring you closer to your core, your own unique vibration and allow you to learn and grow.

When we first come into this world, as little precious and pure babies, we are very connected to the spiritual truth that lies within each of us. This connection begins to wither over time, and sadly, for some people it dies. This can create a disconnect among adults and children… because they still see all the beautiful worlds around them through their spiritual eyes.

On this journey into the physical we are given a special navigation system. This intrinsic system is meant to guide us through life with ease, allowing us to gain the most experience and joy we can without being knocked off course too much. This is our intuition.

When you allow your intuition to fully develop and bloom, you will experience things through your psychic senses. These are the fine-tuned spiritual senses (much like our 5 physical senses) that allow you to perceive and interact with different vibrations and subtle realms.

A lot of parents find it very difficult to relate to their children’s psychic experiences because as an adult you may not be very in tune with the spiritual world. This isn’t a criticism, just a simple truth. The great “psychic forgetting” is a byproduct of our society’s relentless pursuit to disconnect us from our psychic centers.

So when your child begins to talk about invisible friends, prophetic dreams, or seems to know things that they shouldn’t, you may be caught off guard, and you may instantly want to dismiss everything they are saying as “imagination”, or worse, a lie!

Don’t fall down the path of criticizing your psychic child; don’t continue the cycle because it is time for us to embrace our spiritual self. You at one time, and maybe even now, were very aware of the spiritual world that is unfolding all around. If that would’ve been nurtured in you… your psychic senses could have been an invaluable toolkit helping you navigate through life!

Side note: even if you feel closed off to your psychic self… you can awaken your psychic senses, and begin to grow, strengthen, and trust them! It is never too late. It all starts with paying attention and listening. As you work with your child, you will begin to grow yourself.

We all feel the chaotic energy in the world right now. A lot of fatalistic points of view are floating around out there. And it is true, some people have gone a little crazy, and there is some very dark energy. But the Universe/Divine always knows more than what we can see… and part of that plan is bringing in more and more “awake” children.

Children are coming in awake and aware of the psychic world, and their spiritual gifts. They are relentless in keeping their connection to that world, and rather than allowing society to condition them to forget, many are fighting back. They are the paradigm shift!

There are many different names, and classifications: Indigo, crystal, rainbow… the truth is that everyone is born a psychic child, and if we nurture this in our children, they will grow into even more amazing, vibrant and empowered adults!

So let’s talk about the psychic centers, and ways to understand your child’s psychic experiences.

Does your child ever play with an invisible friend? Or talk to people who aren’t there? Or seem to follow around something you can’t see? Or favor a particular room, corner, or area? Or maybe even reports seeing lights, or sparkles?

Those are psychic experiences.

Or does your child talk about people, places, or periods of time that they should have no real knowledge of? Past, present or future? Maybe your child makes matter-of-fact announcements about things that make no sense to you, and later they turn out to be facts. Or does your child dream of things, or people that are eerily accurate descriptions?

Those are also psychic experiences.

Some of these things may leave you baffled, confused, and a little afraid. You may try to rationalize it, or discredit it. Take a different approach, try to accept and nurture it. Your disregard for your child’s experience will leave them feeling judged, and feeling vulnerable. Just as much as you might not believe in it, they do!

Your child will experience spiritual phenomena through 7 psychic centers. These are called the “Clair Senses”, Clair being the French world for clear. These senses mirror our physical senses, but they pick up more subtle information.

The psychic centers work with energetic frequencies. Psychic/spiritual information is constantly moving and pulsating through the atmosphere. This information vibrates as different frequencies, like a radio wave. These vibrations are much higher, and faster than anything we experience in the physical, so the psychic senses pick up on them.

Because a child is still very aware and connected to the spiritual world, they are easily in tune with these frequencies, and they have no problem connecting to them. Very much like animals. It is instinctual and intrinsic. They are essentially walking between worlds, completely open and receptive to the things that are happening around them.

Most children have psychic experiences that are seamless with their perception of the world. There is nothing out of the ordinary to them, and often their Clair senses will overlap with their physical senses. They perceive these frequencies of information through one, or more of the Clair senses.

There are six senses, but the first three of them are the most common that children experience.

Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance (clear sight) is the ability to psychically see things. Sometimes this term will be used incorrectly to describe any psychic sense. A child will often see an entity, whether it is a ghost, spirit, fairy, angel, or anything else in the spectrum of spiritual entities in the Astral world.

Clairvoyance isn’t limited to entities, when I was a child I often saw buildings as they were in the past, and other places in time. There was an old field near where I grew up, and when we use to drive past I would see horses, wagons and people who had been hurt and bleeding. My mom believed I was seeing some kind of imprint from a past battle. I would also go into buildings and see the original interior.

For a child it can be very scary and disorienting when they are telling you they see something, and you don’t acknowledge it. Make sure you listen closely at what they are describing to you. It may hold some importance for you. And you may want to help shield them from certain types of energy, or places.

Visions, and premonitions can fall under this category as well. Even now, as a reader, I will see flashes of things when I am sitting with someone. It is usually like a movie moving through my head. Sometimes these experiences can move from my “mind” into the physical.

Clairsentience

Clairsentience (clear feeling) is the ability to feel things psychically. This is one of the most common psychic senses, and typically remains the most active in people even when they’ve disconnected from their psychic self.

Feeling things psychically has become a part of our general speech… “That doesn’t feel right.” “Something feels off.” “I get a bad vibe about this.” “That doesn’t set well with me.” “My gut is telling me…”

Clairsentience works with the solar plexus, which is the area below the breastbone and above the navel. This is our gut. Your child filters energy, and experiences through the solar plexus, and it comes across as a feeling. This is especially true when dealing with people, thoughts, and emotions.

Your child may seem very sensitive to certain types of environments, buildings, people and situations. This is the result of them taking on the energy of the environment. It is sometimes called, empathy!

As a child I would often get physically ill when I was in an overly populated area, such as a theme park, or other major social setting. I learned to recognize when I was taking on an energy that wasn’t my own at an early age. It also became clear to me that certain things could shield my solar plexus, such as a thick jacket, blanket, or even a special necklace.

If your child suddenly changes moods, or becomes uncomfortable for no reasons, they are most likely picking up on energy in an area. This is usually the reason they want you to hold them with their stomach facing you, or why they are crossing their arms, or holding onto their security teddy/blanket for dear life!

Claircognizance

Claircongnizance (clear knowing) is the ability to have certain knowledge or information without any “logical” way of knowing. This is one of my favorite abilities to see a child display because children are so naturally blunt and unapologetic!

They usually just make announcements of things that, at the time, seem very off the wall… and later prove to be true!

This sometimes gets kids into trouble because they don’t know the difference between something that has been told to them, and something that has been infused into their mind. So big secrets are sometimes told, or lies exposed because they are in the minds and hearts of the people around them… and they pick up on it!

Claircongnizance is typically how a child experiences information about past lives, past events about a person or place, or something happening somewhere else in the world. They just know because they are psychically linking into the stream of knowledge that is floating around the world like a glowing network of webs.

Warning: Don’t try to tell your child something that they know to be true is wrong… if you know it isn’t! Because they will be relentless with the truth. If your child exposes something that he, or she shouldn’t know, acknowledge it and move on quickly. Nothing is more funny than arguing the truth with a psychic 5 year old!

Psychic knowing gives a deeper understanding of spiritual things about past lives, and other realms of the Astral world. If a child is young enough, or open enough, you can usually get them to talk about the Other Side, or things they experienced in lives before. Just ask them!

Clairaudience

Clairaudience (clear hearing) is the ability to hear things psychically. Usually this manifests as a conversation with some type of entity, or hearing things psychically imprinted upon a space. You may have had a clairaudient experience of hearing someone calling your name, and no one is there.

I have found that clairaudience usually goes along with Clairvoyance. A child sees a guide or entity, and they can speak to it. But children will often hear things, without having a visual experience. This can be very frightening for a child when they hear something speaking to them, but can’t see it.

Though, most clairaudient experiences are usually a child’s spirit guides trying to communicate with them. Their guides are there to love, protect and instruct them along their path throughout their entire life.

Children don’t always experience disembodied voices; they can psychically hear strong thoughts, or very intense conversations being had behind closed doors, or in other places. Depending on what frequency they are tapping into, or the atmosphere they are in.

Clairalience

Clairalience (clear smell) is the ability to smell something on psychic level. Usually a child will smell something associated with a person from the past, or someone who will be making an appearance. This can be anything from a departed loved ones perfume, to their favorite cigar, or a food that is associated with them.

Scents can come across through as a prediction. I have psychically smelled things that warned of coming events, involving disasters and situations with people. Again, listen to things you child might be saying, even if they sound peculiar.

Some children will experience a scent when they are being visited by a grandparent in spirit, or a spirit guide or angel. This can be something very distinct like a certain type of flower, or something very favorable to them.

Clairalience often comes prior to, or during other psychic experiences.

Clairgustance

Clairgustance (clear taste) is the ability to taste something psychically. This is one of the more rare occurrences, and is closely connected to Clairalience. Clairgustance can be connected to any number of psychic experiences, but it usually accompanies a more prominent psychic sense.

A child could taste anything from a favorite candy connected to grandma or grandpa, or something that may affect them at a later date… such as a meal that might upset their tummy.

In Closing:

I find that most children experience Clairvoyance, Claircongnizance, and Clairsentience more often than the other psychic senses. Usually the other 3 senses will accompany one of the more prominent senses, helping to refine and add to the psychic encounter.

Each child is unique. They may display only one of the senses, or a combination of all of them. Different encounters may trigger different senses. Being aware of all of the psychic receivers will help you to understand whatever your child may be going through better.

Follow these Simple Guidelines with Your Psychic Child:

  • Always LISTEN! Whatever your child is experiencing is very real to them. Listen to what they say, and take note of the details. Don’t try to lead them to any particular conclusion. Just let them share their experience.
  • Never assume! The information a child is receiving can sometimes seem foreign to them, and may be fragmented depending on the source. Sometimes you have to let things play out to make sense.
  • Be encouraging. If a particular psychic experience seems important to your child, and it doesn’t seem harmful, then encourage them to use their gift. As they connect to Spirit, you begin to connect.
  • Keep your child safe. If you know your child has extreme psychic experiences be mindful of the settings you put them in. Extreme emotions or high-energy situations may trigger their senses in a negative way.
  • Create a system. Give your child an easy way to signal that they are having an experience. If your child sees a particular entity, and it frightens him or her, they could cross their arms, or close their eyes. Some mannerism that signals that they are experiencing a psychic presence. Add a safety net to this. Maybe they have a special bear that they can hold when they feel psychically overstimulated.

Now that you know the basics of the psychic centers, you can watch how they unfold I your child. Your sacred duty as a parent is to listen to your child, and help them learn to use their gift in the everyday, waking world!

All the best,
