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

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:

Thank you so much for your help and good wishes!

Psychic Protection and the White Light (Kids Growing Up Psychic Series)


Melissa’s Note~ It is my pleasure to give you my guest blogger, intuitive psychic, and author, Shaheen Miro. Together we are presenting a series called Kids Growing Up Psychic. And we want to share all we know about this subject in a fun, exciting, and informative way.  

Psychic Protection and the White Light, by Shaheen Miro

Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

As a newly developing psychic, in the real world… the most important tool is psychic protection! Psychic protection is the foundation for a healthy and balanced life, especially if you are working with your spiritual gifts. Everything is energy, and when you are receptive, like your psychic child, you are filtering, processing, and interacting with many frequencies of energy. This can be exhausting, freighting, and at times debilitating.

Psychic children are open channels to the unseen world, which allows them to attract, and interact with different forces. This receptive nature can leave them vulnerable to certain types of experiences. Some experiences are beautiful and healing, and others are very jarring.

Imagine your psychic child like a beautiful beam of light radiating out into the darkness. There is so much untapped potential and limitless power at their fingertips, they have not learned to turn it off, to shy away, or shut out their psychic nature. They appear like a beacon, and stirring and awakening things around them. 

Your psychic child is always radiating their beam of light; this is the light of their soul. This is the sacred part of them that has not yet been clouded by their time in the real world. Most people have learned, either by choice, or circumstance to protect… and even hide this light.

This is the halo you see in art. The aura, which is our energetic self. Everything that you are made up of lives in the many layers of the aura, and can be tapped into for information, and manipulated for your benefit. The aura is composed of many layers, and the deeper layers link into the soul. When you talk about someone being in your “bubble”, you are speaking of your aura.

Now imagine your psychic child, beautiful and radiant… things are flocking to their “bubble” because in a world where most adults have dimmed their light… your child hasn’t. Your child’s aura is in full bloom, radiating colors and light. It’s their truest nature. And some forces wish to acknowledge this presence, even feed off of it.

You never want to leave yourself vulnerable. You want to be in full control of your aura. Using different techniques for spiritual protection will allow your child to stay safe and secure. When a child feels invaded by foreign energies it can frighten, and even isolate them. This is the beginning of the great forgetting.

When Your Child Needs Psychic Protection

  • When they are having nightmares, or unable to sleep.
  • If they are feeling vulnerable in public places. Around strangers. Or with certain friends or relatives.
  • Before entering in a crowded places, especially a mall, school, hospital or park.
  • If they seem to get sick in a certain place or setting.
  • When they have extreme changes in mood, or behavior.
  • If they are frightened by something that you cannot see, or that cannot be explained or articulated.
  • Anytime they feel uncomfortable.

Remember, psychic protection doesn’t just protect your child from unseen forces, or entities. It also protects them from the different thought frequencies and intentions that are floating through the atmosphere, created and directed by very real, living people. This is why children are very vulnerable in negative environments. They mentally and emotionally impressionable. Their empathic nature causes them to completely take on and internalize strong energies being sent around them.

A very simple way for your child to remain psychically protected is through a white light exercise.

Many psychics will refer to the “white light”. This is the light of the Divine, source energy… however you see and experiences the source. This is pure, high-vibration energy. When working with the white light you are accessing the Universe, and asking that all of its goodness surround you.

Because source energy vibrates at a high frequency, it eradicates other lower energies that may interact with it. When your child is surrounded with the white light, it becomes a fortified bubble, a shield!

Try this White Light Meditation with your child!

Begin by standing loosely. With your arms and legs relaxed start to swing them around. Jump around, jiggle, and sway. Move as if you are the wind.

Feel a shiver. A jolt of energy run from the tip of your toes, all the way through your legs, your hips, your belling, your arms, up through you neck and out the top of your head.

Shake it off. Shake your head, yes and then no. Shake your arms. Shake your legs. Shake like you are just getting out of the shower and trying to get all the water off.

Now make your way to the floor. Sit with your legs crossed. Let your arms fall gently by your sides, or into your lap. Close your eyes. And begin listening to your breath.

Feel your belly expand really big like a mountain, and then let out all the air in your belly with a big, “puff”. Now pull more air into your belly, through your nose, and deep down into the bottom of your belly.

Let your belly rise, and fall. It will start to feel like it is dancing, moving gently. You may hear a little whistle from your breath as it moves in and out.

Begin to build a rhythm as the air comes in your nose, and down into your belly, and back out. Like when the tides crash into the ocean, and then fade back again.

You may tingle all over. You may feel yourself want to rock a little from side to side. Or gently move your arms. Have fun, and do whatever feels good.

Smile. Let the biggest smile come across your face.

Now, imagine yourself glowing bright. Imagine you are surrounded with the most beautiful light. You are glowing like a lightening bug.

You are glowing on all sides. From your head to your toes. Every part of your body is surrounded by a white light.

Now, think of your favorite color. Whatever color you love… let it fill your mind.

Repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself. Any color… just repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself out loud.

The white light around you begins to glow, and turn your favorite color.

Did you know you can glow any color you want?

Change colors anytime you like.

This light will keep you protected.

Breathe again. Feeling your belly rise, and fall.

Say out loud, “I am safe. I am protected. I have the light of protection around me.”

Practice this protection meditation with your child as often as possible. If your child is too young to do this meditation, then visualize the light of protection around them. You can use them same visualization, just see them rather than yourself.

Ideally you would want to do this with your psychic child in the morning, and in the evening before bed. After awhile it will become second nature. They can summon the white light whenever they feel vulnerable.

Have fun with it! Create your own variation.

Another way to help your child summon the white light is to draw a picture of the above visualization. Have him, or her draw a self-portrait, with the light all around their body. This is a great way to keep the visualization alive. Whenever your child feels unsafe, they can look at the picture and remember the white light is there when needed.

Stay safe. Have fun!

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…

5 Steps to Develop Your Sparkle – Seeing Abilities

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

Here are some exercises to help you develop these abilities.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Psychic Kids, Sparkles — Centering and Grounding


    Part Two –My book about guiding psychic children.

    I am sharing bits and pieces of the writing of the book I will probably call Guiding Psychic Kids, Does Your Child See Sparkles? Helping Parents that Have Paranormal Families.

    The book actually started because of the awesome response to one blog post I had several years ago. It was a question from a mother that found me by an internet search along with the answer I gave her. She was trying to find out if her daughter was really seeing sparkles and if that was normal. One thing led to another, and here is a full blown book in the making. I believe there is a need for this information, and am blessed to be given insight by my spirit guides regarding paranormal and empathic events with children and their families.

    Here is the beginning of Chapter 2, Maintaining a Safety Net. It is a rough draft of some of the information I am including in the Psychic Kids book that I am writing. (For part one of the book go to Subtle Bodies, Guiding Psychic Kids Blog)

    Chapter 2 — Maintain a Safety Net

    Centering, grounding, and protections

    ~~Another key to raising healthy psychic children is to help them become aware of their energy, and to recognize when their finely tuned systems are ungrounded or processing the psychic stuff around them. Some simple energy tools, practiced daily, usually do the trick.

    Centering, grounding, and protection tools:

    • Grounding~~ One of the first things to do is to have them create an image that connects their body to the center of Mother Earth. This gives kids a sense that they are rooted and plugged in during their day.

    This gives a feeling of being in the body (!). They have a place to send stuck or pent-up energy, instead of it bouncing off the walls.  Have them create a tree trunk, a bean stalk—or any fun image that works for them—and have it come out of the bottom of their feet all the way down through the floor and deep into Mother Earth. Most of us in the modern world have forgotten our deep connection to the planet. A “grounding cord” is a good solid reminder that we are always in communication with the earth below.

    • Having kids become aware of the energy bubble all around them is also beneficial. Their bubble—or aura—defines the space around their body and is a direct reflection of what is going on inside. If their bubble is vibrating at a color that isn’t in harmony with them at the moment, they can decide to change it if they want. They can pick a color that is fun for them and change the color for different activities. This is not only a fun game for them, but also helps them get to know their own energy.

    Help them appreciate that they are in control, and responsible for their own body and energy. They can also clean their bubble with a magic sponge and make their bubble bigger or smaller so it’s the right size just for them.

    • Kids need to know how very sacred their bodies are (I call it the body temple) and how lucky they are to be here, experiencing life from the limitless wisdom of their body. But getting kids to get inside their bodies, even for just a moment, can be challenging to say the least!

    All kids are psychic, and you may feel a big responsibility on your shoulders just with this realization. But remember that in any case, kids are kids no matter what. Your job as a parent is simply to support them, give them love, encourage them to be who they are, and remind them often that they are much bigger than what the outside world often makes of them.

    The book should be ready for sale by mid-April 2013, so look for that announcement soon. Until then, you should begin by reading my book Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics.

    I’ll be blogging soon with more excerpts and the progress of Guiding Psychic Kids!

    Subtle Bodies, Being Hyper-Empathic; Guiding Psychic Kids

    soaringUPDATE: Does Your Child See Sparkles, Guiding Psychic Kids Book

    I’m working on a chapter that will help parents understand why their child is so sensitive, or empathic. And it all boils down to the subtle bodies that reside in the aura (energy field around the physical body). During the normal process of unfoldment for mediumship, we learn how to open our subtle bodies, which opens a pathway, allowing the spirit to connect and commune with us. But many people who are hyper-empathic, such as our young psychic kids and young adults, already have their subtle bodies wide open all the time, not realizing it or knowing what to do about it.

    Here is a section of the book I am writing now about subtle bodies:

    To understand why kids these days are hyper empathic and totally open to psychic phenomena, such as prophetic dreams, seeing or hearing spirits or ghosts, or knowing the future, I need to open the topic of subtle bodies. Also, an explanation of how spirit mediums can connect with the spirit world will be helpful.

    First of all, if your child is able to see spirits or hear them, or has healing hands, then more than likely, the child is highly empathic, too. Being empathic means to be hyper-sensitive to other’s energies: such as, feeling sick to your stomach while being around someone with an intestinal upset, or feeling a headache when their mother has a migraine. Other sensations can include excitability, unknown fears, anxiety while in a shopping mall or large department store, anger, over-zealous outbursts, etc. All these things are carried through the our energy fields (auras), and a highly empathic person can feel these emotions and sensations – usually not knowing that they really belong to another person.

    To understand what being empathic is, and learn to control it, will make a world of difference to you and the child. Then all the other gifts will be controlable too.

    Just because you have a spiritual gift, does not mean it should be controlling you. That is backwards. But as children come to us now, they are coming in totally open to the gifts without any instruction. Most of the baby-boomers (born around 1955 or before) you might know, who are psychic or mediumistic probably had to sit for development of their gifts. (Although there are some who received their gifts as a result of near death expereinces, severe fevers, or sudden mental or physical shock.)

    In this world now, the energies are so intense in the universe, and the times are so ripe for transformation, that our kids are coming into the world ready to work. However, we parents, guardians, and teachers have to step up to be their instructors – to help them understand the most advantageous manner to use their gifts correctly.

    This book will be finished and ready for sale sometime in March 2013 if all goes as scheduled [ ;o) ]. I’ll be adding posts as I go so you can follow along with the content. Until then, I would suggest you read my latest book Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics.

    Does Your Child See Sparkles? Guiding Kids with Psychic Gifts

    thirdeyeSo— I begin writing this new book about children that see sparkles, about kids that are highly empathic, and families that are having paranormal experiences. Where to begin?

    Over the past three years or so, I have been saught-out (is saught a word?) by parents that are totally confused, afraid, worried, and do not have a clue as to what they should think or do with these psychic experiences happening in their families. Some have at least one child that sees ghosts — all the time. Some have kids that have prophetic dreams about family members and friends dying. Some have small children that keep seeing sparkley lights and try to catch them by jumping up in the air, and telling everyone about it.

    What in the world is going on? I’m sure you have asked yourself that more than once. You are not alone. There are many other parents (and teachers, and guardians) with children who have had some kind of paranormal experience.

    So — I am writing a book about it. And I am inviting you to leave your comments here on this blog to help me include things that need to be in it. Does your family have paranormal situations happening? Have you found a good way to handle it and help your child? Do you have any thoughts or experiences that should be important — maybe something that I haven’t addressed in other blog articles? Please share them in this blog comment areas below the article. When you leave the comment be sure to include your permission in using the content in the book. I will never use real names. The circumstances may even be changed to protect those involved. 

    So many changes are happening now, and we will look at many of these things so you will be more confident in working with your child in a meaningful way.

    When children see ghosts, what’s a parent to do?                                                              

    Is my child destined to be haunted for life?                                                                       

    Does my child need psychological help, or some kind of medications?                             

    Should I believe what my child reports even if I don’t believe in ghosts?

    Parents can feel all emotions from being paralyzed with fear, to being curious and supportive. If their children are scared by encounters with the spirit world, parents naturally fret about how to best help their kids through this fear. This may be a challenge since fear can be so intense that it causes the child – and sometimes the parent, too – to become physically sick from it.

    If, on the other hand, the child feels open and comfortably connected to the world of ghosts, parents may feel less apprehensive. Either way, parents are sure to be baffled about how to proceed.

    This information is put together first because people have sought me out for answers. Many of those answers I did not know at the time. So I went on a quest to find the answers. I consulted my own spirit guides and teachers for understanding to share.

    The book is a kind of primer for paranormal understanding. But know that as many kids as there are that have psychic experiences, each one will be different, with specific symptoms and characteristics. Each symptom or characteristic may need a specialized approach depending on the child involved.

    Each child is raised in a certain family, with genetic history, cultural differences, and social backgrounds. So the approach to their experiences will be different. But this book addresses generalities that will help you decide what is best for your family.

    These are just a few of the things that will be covered in the book. I’ll be writing more articles here to share the journey, and some of the expereinces that my clients have had. This is your book. So I want to share as much of the preparation and writing as I can. It will be an ongoing account and recording of this text.

    I might add, that if you are interested in such things, you can prepare for the release of this book by reading my recent book Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics. Thanks!
