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.

MOVIE REVIEW: Ghostbuster (2016)


ghostbusters2016A
(Photo: ibtimes.com)

I have been waiting oh, so long for this next make of the classic Ghostbuster movies. After all the hoopla about second rate remakes, I have gone to the theatre and watched it in regular screen, not the 3-D version. I did not want the visual effects to overpower the way I saw it for the first time. Sometimes 3-D can be the spectacular thing and you forget the actual movie.

But before I tell you if I liked it or not, let me share with you some of the back story.

First off, this Ghostbuster 2016 is not a “proper sequel” that the Ghostbuster cult fans have been screaming for, like the two other movies from 1984 and 1989. It is a reboot. It is an entirely new version. And there is a reason for it.

The third film for Ghostbusters had been on the drawing board ever since the release of Ghostbusters II in 1989. There had been several steps of progress, only to be taken back to square one. There was no doubt that the fans wanted another one (me included). The problems came in many guises. Bill Murray, who was an original cast member for one reason or another refused to make a committed promise to the new project. Also, the death of fellow cast member Harold Ramis (1944-2014) who played the part of Egon Spengler obviously set back the development of the next movie. Different plots and themes were discussed (including one where Bill Murray’s character was transformed into a ghost, and another in which the Ghostbusters went to hell), but were always never finalized.

Check out this discussion from Melissa McCarthy about the reboot ideas: Click Here

So, Sony and Columbia Pictures decided to reboot the series. Many of the original cast members were cast in cameo roles (I love looking for cameo spots). And an all-female cast (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) was announced in 2015. This sparked more controversy.

So, come hell or high water, Ghostbusters 2016 was on its way. And I was totally stoked.

Just what is Ghostbusters? Or- Have you been living under a rock?

Ghostbusters is a supernatural comedy. Filmmaker Paul Feig directed it and shared writing it with Katie Dippold. It was released in the United States on July 15, 2016, in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. It’s about four women (from different live experiences) who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. It seems to follow similar lines in the plot from the original stories of bringing several people of expertise together in unusual manner (of course) to investigate paranormal occurrences, research supernatural science, and catch/contain ghostly apparitions with their untested equipment.

And, understanding as we should, that this story is purely for our comedic entertainment, we watch all manner of unusual events, wonkiness, misguided bureaucratic intervention, and pure unadulterated joy as the women of ethereal escapades ramble through our minds.

Kate McKinnon plays part of Dr. Jillian Holtzmann, eccentric (too say the least) enegineer, who successfully tests the Holtzmann’s Proton Containment Laser. She is totally her own woman. So wacky and fully in control of her super-knowledge. She is my new-superhero.

Melissa McCarthy plays the part of Abby Yates, co-author of a book which theorizes the existence of paranormal phenomenon such as ghosts. McCarthy must be my favorite contemporary actor of the 21Century. She could have totally souped-up this role, but kept her grounded and loving in nature. She could easily have been the character you wanted to hate, but instead was the catalyst that kept the women together. I believe this speaks to Melissa’s superb acting ability.

Kristen Wiig playing Erin Gilbert, who also authored the same book on paranormal phenomenon. But she felt no one took her seriously and went the road of respectable teacher at Columbia University. When she witnessed a real ghost with the others, she was on-board with the investigations. The level-headed person of the team, who always got slimed (Yeah, there was a lot of that!)

ghostebusters2016Patty
(Photo: theguardian.com)

Comedian Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, the un-paranormal addition to the team. Known because of her underground expertise in the rail system and historic knowledge of New York City, Leslie plays the role of “I’ll just tell you how it is” kind of person that helps ground the other roles. It would not have been a Ghostbuster Team without her! I consider this a break out role for Leslie Jones and you will see so much more of her. I think this just scratches the surface of her acting talents.

So what did I think?

Well, I went into this wanting it to be another great Ghostbuster film. And I knew that because it was an all-female cast, it could be problematic. But I had high hopes.

It did not disappoint me! I love it! Will go see it in 3-D now. And buy the DVD just as soon as it comes out!

Be well, my friends, Melissa Leath

What Is Mediumship? Séances, Circles and Channeling


ghostinroom

Taken from Chapter 2, Intuition, Psychics, and Mediumship, of Psychic integrity, the Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics

What Is Mediumship?

Mediumship is being aware of the vibrations of spirit beings, and receiving messages from them. It is the communication of a deceased loved one through an intermediary. The information is then given to those who are grieving the loss of the loved one.

Connecting with the crown chakra (or seventh energy center) at the top of the head, a bridge is built to the higher levels or planes of existence. By building this bridge, an association is made with visions, imagination, and spiritual awakening. The main purpose of mediumship is to provide recognition of continuing life after the physical death, and to transmit love and encouragement.

By working through the crown chakra, the medium’s spiritual path is empowered and opens to integrity in becoming responsible in communication dealings. Association with the higher realms also plants a firm foundation for the connection with finer vibratory entities and spirit teachers. Mediums do not usually attract lower-level energies, as long as the connection is established with higher vibrations.

Another reason spirit beings open communication with the living is to give evidential information that can be acknowledged by those still in the body. They create physical activities often recognized as paranormal activity, and perceived by humans in a physical manner.

Mediumship involves cooperation between a living person and a person in the spirit realm. This entails either communication of some kind or physical manipulation of energies. Mediumship is divided into two categories: mental (communication) or physical (energy manipulation).

Mental mediumship is communication by thought transference from the spirit to the medium. Mental information is communicated, and then spoken by the medium. Information is brought to the medium as feelings, words, thought forms or impressions.

How clearly the information is relayed depends on how deep the medium is under control: the deeper the control, the purer the information. Mediumistic control has to do with the connection made by the spirit with the medium, using a combination of mental and physical energy. The bond or link is made by the two through the consciousness of the medium. It can be a strong link or very light. The control is determined by the strength of the link.

If the link is a good one, practiced over time, different levels of trance can be manifested. Since spirit information flows through a living mind, with personal emotions, it could become clouded with personal influence by the medium.
Mediumship, or communication with deceased loved ones, can be very healing to those of us who are left here on earth. The person going through a grieving process may need evidence to prove there is life after death, and reassurance that the loved one really is alright. There is a re-uniting of what appeared to be separated. Then closure begins.

The spirit also has a real need to connect with their living loved one to let them know all is well. There is a reaching out by both parties to recognize that the bond has not been broken, just transformed.

Then the deceased loved one has an opportunity to share the experience of transition. This gives comfort with the knowledge that death does not end life, but creates a new expansion of what life really is.

Physical mediumship is accomplished by using physical energy, under control as in the mental mediumship, but usually from a much deeper trance. The spirit manages the transformation of energy into physical objects, movement or sounds. A paranormal event occurs in the physical, and can be felt, heard or seen by the living.

PsychicIntegrityCover2x3

This physical form of mediumship is probably the most unusual demonstration of what a spirit entity can do through medium control. Unfortunately there have been far too many contrived and deceitful examples of the séance event. Because of that, many people discredit the entire concept of mediumship.

The spirit entity in control of the evidential séance uses both mental and physical energies of the medium to create a physical manifestation, something all those sitting in the séance as participants in the experience can witness. The physical medium has an abundance of electromagnetic and etheric energy (human energy field, part of the aura which is rich with human emotions) emanating as part of their aura/energy field. Usually, while the medium is in a deep trance state, the spirit being uses this etheric energy and creates ectoplasm.

If you have ever seen the movie “Ghostbusters” or any ghostladen, scary program, you have seen a filmy or cloudy emanation around or coming from an entity, spirit being or ghost. This is the best representation of ectoplasm available. Although the medium’s etheric energy is the main source for the event, usually more is gathered from the sitters (séance participants). If the energies are plentiful, a large amount of ectoplasm is formed to work with. The use of personal auric energy is the main ingredient for this operation to be successful. It requires the full attention of everyone in the séance. This is why the sitters in the séance not only experience the event, but actually become part of it. It can be a very dramatic demonstration of energy manipulation by spirit.

The Trance State: A deep control by the spirit will produce a trance state of consciousness with the medium. A lighter trance is used for mental mediumship, and a deeper trance is used for physical mediumship.

Indicators for the trance state are similar to those for deep meditation. Trance can be recognized by the slowing down of many of the medium’s automatic physical body processes which are generally controlled unconsciously: heart rate, breathing and body temperature. It is not the same as the sleep state, but could be confused with it. For all intents and purposes, the medium is unconscious.

Since spirit speaks directly through the consciousness of the medium in the trance condition, the voice will sound much different from the person’s usual voice. This is considered more accurate information and is often called direct voice.

Channeling is a mild form of trance, in which the medium is usually still awake and aware of the information coming through. It deals with spiritual teachings coming from the higher realms. As I see it, if you are unaware of the information coming through, you are in deep trance. If you are given a trail of information as a conversation, a lecture or a class, then you are channeling.

The medium gives consent to be used by the spirit being, by going into the trance state. The spirit is now in control of the energy transformation and can manipulate the ectoplasm to produce phenomena.

A medium can facilitate physical phenomena because there is an abundance of this etheric ectoplasm. This is a part of the subtle energy body that allows us to operate as humans. In a physical medium, this subtle body is more loosely attached than in most people. {More on this in chapter 3 “How You Can Talk to Heaven (and How You Can’t)”.}

There is no limit to what can be done through physical mediumship, as long as the proper conditions are held in the séance room. These physical phenomena can range from rapping, levitation of objects or people, flickering lights, independent writing/painting, direct voice, and partial or full materialization of spirit bodies. As a witness in many séances during my years in the work, I have seen a light show that would rival any rock concert! I have seen apports (objects materialize out of thin air) in full view during the daylight. It truly is amazing what can be done during spirit control.

Why is it important to have physical phenomena? If the spirit mind (and we all have a spirit mind) can transform matter, then the same intelligence can transform other areas of life to manifest the world we know we could have. Information is being shared by many metaphysical teachers about the Law of Attraction and Manifestation. Physical phenomenon is another form of evidence to validate manifestation.

Proof Watch Party, John Edward, and Residual Hauntings


proofHave you been watching Proof, a television program on TNT network? It’s pretty amazing, if you like to investigate life after death, and spirit communication. (Description: Following the death of her teenage son, a divorce, and a rift with her daughter, Dr. Carolyn Tyler is persuaded by Ivan Turing, a tech inventor and billionaire with cancer, to investigate supernatural cases of reincarnation, near-death experiences, and hauntings, in hopes to find evidence that death is not final.)

I was invited to a Watch Party with John Edward last week. It was very interesting idea: watch the program, follow his Tweets and Facebook posts about the program as it is shown.

He also had one of the actors from the Proof program (Jennifer Beal) with him. So you could get inside information that way too.

I do not have Tweet capability (never could figure that out!), but I did watch the posts on John’s Facebook page. And followers could post questions and comments to his page too. He commented with answers when he could.

I know how this type of thing goes, as far as the Facebook interaction. I have a monthly Interactive Discussion on a Secret Page of Facebook. It is part of my Monthly Online Psychic Development Class. Members receive a Video Packet (video lesson and guided meditation audio by me), at the first of each month. Then they watch the lesson and use the meditation each day during the month in their own spare time. Then we get together at the end of the month to discuss and question what transpired for each member.

Anyway, it is really fun to do that Facebook discussion. It moves really fast, and you have to follow what everyone is saying and respond to it. It has always been fun and informative. So for John Edward to put one of these things together must have really been fun for him and Jennifer Beal of Proof.

ghostinroomThere was one area of the program that I know was incorrect. The medium that was consulted about the haunting at the church and graveyard made a statement that I do not agree with. He said that a residual haunting was when the soul separated from a dying person during a traumatic death event. And the soul was still on earth haunting the area.

Well, the way I understand it, a residual haunting is a culmination of energy from a traumatic event creating an imprint. It is like a replay of the event over and over, but there are no spirits involved. It is only the result of such strong energy. The spirit (or soul) of the person who died is not still there haunting the place.

Now, I have only watched this one episode. But if all of them are disseminating incorrect information like this, it cannot benefit us in anyway. If you know me at all, you know I only stand for integrity in this field. Anything else is not worth my time.

I am sorry to say that I do not support this program, and will not endorse it. And it’s too bad. Because we need high standards and honest reflection of our spiritual (albeit paranormal) endeavors. Of course, I consider what I do as normal — not paranormal. But that is another article!

If you saw the program, give me a shout out below on the comments area. Let me know what you think.

Why Do People Believe in Ghosts? Repost.


Do you believe in ghosts?

Do you believe in ghosts?

Do you believe in Ghosts? Do you know what a Spirit is? There is so much confusion and misunderstanding between the two things. I find this article posted on The Atlantic Website very interesting. The author, Tiffanie Wen, shares why she thinks people believe in ghosts and how we see something as being para-normal. And even though she ponders the idea of ghosts exclusively, there really is no mention of Spirits.

Check out her article here >>>

http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/09/why-do-people-believe-in-ghosts/379072/

Now, after you have read that post, check out my workshop video that explains the difference between ghosts and Spirits. (Hint: Ghosts are still Earthbound, and Spirits have transcended into the full Spirit World, leaving the Earth experience behind.) Also explored is why Ghosts stay Earthbound. Yes, there are many reasons!

Here is the link to the workshop information: http://www.melissaleath.com/ghostDescription.html

This workshop covers a wide range of information about ghosts and spirits, and understanding what the difference is between them. Spirits are loved ones or other former human beings who have lived on the earth. They are now in the spirit world and have gone through the entire process of transformation. A ghost is a lost spirit that has not fully embraced the transformation into the spirit world. It remains attached to earthly things or people in an attempt to re-assimilate.

psychic2
Also covered is:

  • Why are they earthbound? What keeps them trapped?
  • Understanding the Death Process, and the shifting place between “earthbound” and “in-spirit”.
  • Discussion on clean spirit – unclean spirit, as related in the Bible.
  • Hauntings: What can you do? What is a residual haunting?
  • Is there a moral obligation to clearing spirit energies from a haunted place?

    This lecture covers so much information, you will want to listen to it over and over. The lecture is followed by questions and answers.

    I hope you enjoy it! http://www.melissaleath.com/ghostDescription.html
