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,
Shaheen

REVIEW: My Gift, A Book for Children Who See Spirit (Elana Whyte, author).


MyGiftBookCover

My Gift, A Book for Children Who See Spirit

Elana Whyte has written a loving story of a little boy who sees his late grandfather. He is just a regular little boy, but realizes he is able to see things that others might not.

It addresses being scared sometimes, and knowing that it is alright to be scared. And explains in very easy to understand ideas about life after death, and how to be in control of their spirit gift.

The artwork is done so beautifully, and shows what a “see-through” spirit would look like without being scary.

This book is a wonderful addition to a child’s bookshelf, and helps parents to introduce a conversation that might otherwise be difficult for them.

I recommend this sweet book as a teaching tool for parents, teachers, and relatives of children who have displayed knowledge or vision that is considered out of the ordinary. If you are a worried parent about your child, your child might be worried too. This will help all concerned in reaching an understanding.

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.

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

What to Do If You’re Going to a Seance


seanceThe whole idea of a séance can be a scary one if you haven’t had any experience with them. I was lucky enough to sit in many séances in the 1980s an 90s in the little Spiritualist church I belonged to. Visiting mediums came at different times during the year to offer sermons, private readings, and what we all waited for: séances.

Being connected with a Spiritualist church bypassed the worries of being bombarded with evil spirits and haunted by ghouls and unwelcome creatures from hell! We knew this was a spiritual endeavor and always surrounded with Light and Love, protected by our individual Spirit Guides and Angels.

But for you, who may not have been so fortunate, and perhaps have heard of disturbing tales of fear and possession, let me give you a few tips for attending a séance — just in case you ever get the chance to attend one.

How do you prepare for attending a séance? Or do you even have to do anything? Of course you do. Here are a few tips for you to think about before you plan on going to a séance:

  • Investigate the medium and sponsor involved.
    Make sure you know the medium that will be giving the séance. Are they reputable? do they have a spiritual character? I am not emphasizing religion here, rather, spirituality. The medium should have a good standing with metaphysical people in the area, and be known for producing empowering sessions. If you cannot find anyone who knows the medium, or can speak well of them, then pass this one by. The same thing goes for the person involved in sponsoring the medium and location of the event. These things all matter in the outcome.
  • Know what type of séance is being held.
    There are so many different types of séances and ways to present them. True old fashioned séances always took place in total darkness. But there are some mediums that are able to produce phenomena in the light. I have witnessed this and it is very powerful to see! This way, you can pretty much rule out fakery (and, yes, I have seen this too). Just a few of the different types are: deep trance which can include physical mediumship with direct voice, levitation, independent writing or painting, partial or full materialization of spirit bodies or apports (objects that materialize out of thin air), etc. Sometimes these things can be accomplished through mental mediumship as well.

    Sometimes mental mediums will call a séance in a circle and just give spirit messages. I do not consider this a séance, but I would call it a Spirit Circle.

  • ghostinroom

  • Do not give away too much information.
    Keep your personal information to yourself. To prove to yourself that the séance is legitimate, make sure you do not spread the word that your grandmother just passed away two weeks ago, for instance. This type of information has been known to be used to fake a séance (or reading). There was much talk about John Edward and other mediums when they had television galleries, etc. People said that there were spies in the crowd that gathered before the shows, and would collect names and stories from the audience before hand. Whether this really happened or not I do not know. I just remember the talk about it. I have always held John Edward in high esteem. I just give him as a example. So if you do not give away any personal information, you can be sure of truth when there is spirit evidence presented.
  • Raise your vibrations.
    Before you go, spend some time grounding yourself and thinking loving thoughts. Keep a positive attitude. Ask that you be protected with Light and Love and that you only receive positive and uplifting energy and information.
  • Bring your spirit loved ones with you.
    Ask the loved ones that have passed away or your spirit guides to be there and leave messages. You will get much better results if you take your spirit entourage with you. That helps the medium to connect easier.
  • Don’t cause a disturbance, be respectful.
    When entering into a séance, the medium and the spirits work off of energy. so it is important for you to be positive, and greet the spirits when they present themselves. When a spirit might greet you by saying hello, return the greeting! That is only respectful! And you get a better connection that way. No matter what is going on, even if you feel it might be a faked séance, please remain calm and respectful. There is no reason to lay blame or bring about a heavy or negative vibration.
  • Well, that should be a few great tips for you! If you decide to go to a séance or a Spirit Circle, I hope you remember these ideas.

    Ghosts and Spirits: What’s the Difference?


    After being a spirit medium for over 30 years, I’ve had a chance to understand the process of spirit leaving the body at death. Some think this is scary and paranormal, but there could be nothing more normal than our true story as Spirits being Humans.

    The fact that I can communicate with the spirits might be strange and spooky to some people. But when you have a loved one that has passed away, you want to know if they are alright. So, who you gonna call?

    I’ll be giving a lecture Sharonville Ohio Convention Center at the Victory of Light Expo[ http://www.victoryoflight.com] this weekend. [Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, 2012]. My lecture is called Discarnetes, Ghosts and Hauntings . It is on Sunday at 2:00pm in Room B. The last time I gave this lecture, I had a really excited group of attendees (75-80). They were all sitting on the edge of their chairs, and were full of questions too!

    Here’s just a short sample of what I’ll be speaking about this weekend:

    Spirits are our loved ones or other beings that have lived on the earth, but are now in the spirit world. They have gone through the entire process of evolving into what we understand as full transformation.

    A ghost, on the other hand, 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.

    Earthbound spirits are believed to be the spirits of deceased people who remain tied to the earth for a variety of reasons. Religious sects claim that all spirits are of the devil and are here to perform trickery, and lead people down the wrong path, but others declare that as we pass from this life, our sprit can remain earthbound.

    It is unclear whether earthbound spirits can see and hear the world around them. Some are able to interact with the living, but many require the assistance of a psychic or medium to communicate.

    Reasons for remaining earthbound vary, probably due to the life circumstances at the time of death. It is believed that the majority of earthbound spirits remain out of choice. Some may be confused souls seeking assistance in reaching the afterlife or have unfinished business that they feel must be completed before passing to the next realm.

    Here are some reasons spirits remain earthbound:

    1. Refusal to accept death

    2. Waiting for…

    3. Guardianship

    ~~~sorry! Can’t give it all away! If you want more, come on out to the Expo. If you are interested in ordering a DVD of my last lecture, please send me an email and I’ll connect with you. psychicintegrity@gmail.com

    Blessings to you.

    Kids Seeing Sparkles: Questions and Answers on Fear


    There have been so many responses to my first two articles about “seeing sparkles” that I felt  guided to write this further information. As the conversation continues, more information is brought out. And I see other areas that should be addressed concerning this newly recognized phenomenon.

    If this is your first time searching SPARKLES, then be sure to read the other posts I have made. They are listed just below here… ** Be sure to read all the comments that follow too, because the readers have other great information and experiences that just might answer one of your questions! Thanks to all that have posted comments over the past year, you have been so much help in this endeavor.

     

    1.  My first article called Children Seeing Sparkles addresses the first email I received regarding this fascinating subject. Start your quest by reading this aticle:  https://thegobetween.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/children-seeing-sparkles/

     

    2. This second article called The Truth about Seeing Spirited Sparkles is an earnest attempt to give more information and an expanded view of it. Please read it too:  https://thegobetween.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/the-truth-about-seeing-spirited-sparkles/

     

    As I said, if you are really looking for information regarding Sparkles, then be sure to read all of the comments with both articles, before you ask any questions.

    Please realize, that I am not an expert on this subject. But I am learning very quickly about the different aspects of it, and hope that I am able to help you understand, even if in only a small way, what might be going on.

     

    FEAR: This particular article is based on some questions that have come in dealing with fear about the sparkles: either by the children seeing them, or by their parents. Bear with me as I explain somethings that might help.

     

    Understanding Energy

    Basically, energy is simply energy. Energy is always energy. Energy can take the form of many different things: clouds, houses, people, Jello,  even  thought forms. It also can be the way those in the spirit world show themselves  (such as with Sparkles).

    Here is an example of how we sometimes view energy: If someone comes into your house, and you feel strange and uneasy around them, then you usually will say, “There’s something wrong with that person,” or “I get a bad feeling around him.” It depends on how we feel about the person as to whether we think it is good or bad. This is only a judgment. It is not how the energy is. It could be that the vibration of that person is just different from yours, and that is why you feel something. But it does not mean that the person is bad.

    The same thing can be said about other things in life, such as sparkles. The reason I say that is because our younger children have a difficult time relating what they see or feel to us. Their experience is still very limited to find references for this situation. So, if they have seen a scary movie, or ghost story, then they know the feeling of fear. It is a quickening, or tense feeling. Perhaps, the sparkles are connected to spirits or angels. But if there is no reference to that, then “ghost” might be what they say and believe. So, something that originally did not present itself as negative, becomes scary. Of course, this might not be the case for everyone. But I see this in many situations.

     

    Empowerment

    Now I want to talk about being empowered in these strange situations. In the physical world, we teach our children to be safe, and how to protect themselves. Example: Your child might be at school playing on the playground with other kids. A man comes up and says scary things to the child. You teach you child ahead of time to stay away from them, and to say “Go away, stay away from me.”

    The same is true when dealing with spirit energies of any kind. They may be positive spirits. But they seem scary to your child. Or the sparkles might expand, and show themselves all the time. It might get out of hand, and frustrating. Sometimes, children remember the scary movies and relate what they see to something negative. Then their imagination can create more of it. It is real to them. (I have to say here, that once in a great while, there can be a real negative energy. But that is very unusual. The more common thing is that the sparkles, or situation, is confusing, or misunderstood. And the child doesn’t really know how to react to it.)

    Talk to your child about being powerful, just like the scenario about the playground. Each person is “in charge” of what goes on around them. You have a say so, wheather you want to be around good energy or bad energy. So your child needs to know that they are empowered to be in charge of that. Even if it is good sparkles, if your child is scared of it, or just doesn’t want it around them anymore, they should be able to do something about it.

    It is important to be nice and calm. Your child can say something like, “I don’t want to see you sparkles at night anymore. Go away now. Leave me alone.” They should say it very firmly, but in a nice way. If the child is too small, then the parent can help. But remember not to be agressive or angry about it.

    Through conversations with others, I have found that children usually out-grow the sparkles. At least, they become less intense. I think it has to do with being involved with the worldly things of life. Other chilodren embark on a wonderful connection and relationship with the sparkles. This would be similar to converstations with angels or spirit guides, which I consider normal.

     

    Other Information

    I am in the process of creating a resource list of websites, books and videos that might be of use concerning this. If you know of a good reference, be sure to comment here so others can benefit too. This list will be posted in a few days, so you might want to register to my blog and get an email when a new post is available.

    I hope this has helped you in some way. Right now, it is the journey of figuring this all out. And I am honored that you have joined me in it!

    Blessings to you and your experiences with Sparkles!

    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.

    EMAIL:

    Subject: Hello!
    Date: Wed, 26 May 2010 18:11:18 +0000

    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!

    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
