I have been looking forward to reaching the letter ‘C’ in my Angels to Zen blog so I could write about the amazing psychic abilities of children. In the ten years that I have been doing spiritual work, I have lost count of the number of mums, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents who have told me about the beautiful psychic, sensitive and intuitive babies in their lives, and I love to hear it. The babies, children and young people that we nurture today, are the teachers, politicians, doctors, nurses and decision makers of the future. Each and every one of us can take responsibility for the care of the naturally loving, sensitive and intuitive natures of the very important children who are currently arriving amongst us. It is my belief that young people (25 and younger) and many who have not even been born yet, are going to be the generations that make the crucial difference to the future synergy, equilibrium and, dare I say, survival, of this beautiful blue planet. I’d like to share with you some of the questions that I have been asked about wonderful sensitive children, as relayed to me by their loving and supportive adult guardians. With each story, I’d like to give you a few tips on how best to nurture the sensitivity in a child who is having similar experiences. Just as every child is unique, the way that they connect with the Universe, express their spirituality and practice love is unique to them as well.
‘When sitting in her feeding chair, my 16-month-old daughter points at things that are invisible to me. She laughs and looks as if she’s following something with her eyes that is moving around the room. She is incredibly amused by this and not at all frightened.’
This sounds to me like an Angelic experience. This child is most likely seeing coloured balls of light that are known as orbs, which are physical manifestations of Angelic energy. That the child laughs is indicative of a loving, comforting and healing energy. This experience tells us that this child is likely to be very sensitive, helpful, naieve and innocent. This is a child who will always see the good in others, she will want to assist wherever she can and is likely to give her pocket money to charity. Laugh along with her as she is telling you that there are Angels in your home. This experience is most common amongst children where the mother has had a difficult pregnancy or birth. It is as if the Angels make a special effort to let the child know that they are safe and protected. If this has happened to your baby, please know that the Angels are looking after them and although you may have had a difficult experience, it is safe for you to stop worrying. You do not need to be fearful that you might lose your child. The trauma is over now and the Angels are bringing healing and protection to you and your child. In prayer, say: ‘Thank you Angels for always protecting and guiding my children.’ Let that prayer help to heal your fears.
‘My nephew, who is 3 years old, keeps mentioning his ‘other mum’ and asks where his sister is, even though he doesn’t have a sister. He sometimes says that before he came, he lived in another house far away, but he has always lived in the same house since he was born.’
Aww, this lovely boy has retained past life knowledge. He is what I would call an ‘old soul’ and has lived in this world many times before. A child who has an experience like this can teach us much. Let him speak. Don’t tell him he is wrong or making up stories about his ‘other family’. Let him tell you all about it, ask him what his last house was like and what his other mum was like. Ask him what colour his other sister’s hair was and which toys she played with. A child who exhibits this wondeful rememberance is wise beyond their years. He will often be quiet and is easily pleased. This is a child whose favourite word is ‘why?’, he has an innate need to understand the reasoning behind life’s occurences. This child may be bossy (because he was probably your parent in a past life, and you were his child!) and he likes to direct, guide and organize. Involve this child in fun activities and encourage him to be silly. He knows the importance of life on a soul-level and that is a heavy burden, he needs assistance to ‘lighten-up’ sometimes.
‘My six-year-old daughter told me that there was a lady in her room last night. She described her apprearance very specifically and told me that the lady’s name was Jean. Jean was my grandmother whom my daughter never met and has never seen, not even in a photo. She passed away 20 years ago.’
Bless, this amazing little girl is a natural medium. She is able to connect with the energy consciousness of people who are no longer in a physical body. This girl is a very empathic person. If anyone around her is upset, she gets upset and you cannot hide your feelings from her. If there is an atmosphere in the home, she will pick up on it. It is better to be tactfully honest with this little girl. She is a worrier. This is a child who questions time. She will ask, ‘when is Christmas?’, ‘when is my birthday?’, ‘how long until school-time?’. Time means something different to this girl because she does not measure it from birth until physical death (she doesn’t consciously know this of course!) but trust me, time is a different thing to her. She would rather do something because it makes you happy than because you tell her to. She is stubborn. When you ask her to clean her room, say, ‘It would make dad so so happy if you would tidy your room.’ She will respond to your feelings rather than the command. When she speaks to you about spirit people that she sees, encourage her to draw a picture of them, and make sure she knows that she is safe.
‘My little brother, who is 8, has dreams every night. Some of his dreams would terrify an adult, never mind a small child! He has always crept into our parent’s bed in the middle of the night; sometimes out of fear, and sometimes just out of habit.’
Congratulations! Your life has been gifted with a beautiful dreamer-child. This little boy is wired deep into the higher consciousness, so when there is something very wrong in the world he will have nightmares; filter that through a child’s imagination and the results can be pretty frightening. This child has a wonderful imagination and a creative spirit. Channel their energy into creative pursuits throughout the day and keep them away from the news. This child would benefit from a Dream Jar. A Dream Jar is a jar to be kept in the child’s room. Every night before sleep, they get to choose what they would like to dream about. Write their chosen dream down on a piece of paper, fold it up and put it in the jar for the dream fairies to collect whilst he sleeps. When the dream fairies read the dream, they will grant his wish and give him beautiful dreams. This child sees the world in a very symbolic way. Use your hands a lot and make eye contact when you speak to him. When he gets a little older, the Dream Jar can turn into a dream journal, where he can write down or draw his dreams. (FYI, I am a dream-child. This is how my spiritual journey began.)
‘I often catch my 10-year-old niece talking to herself as if she is playing with someone. In the last few years, we’ve had to set an extra place at the dinner table for ‘Kyra’, who is my niece’s imaginary friend.’
Wonderful! You have a child of the astral-plane. This little girl has an awareness of ‘other things out there’ generally. Her imaginary friends are imaginary in one sense because she perceives them in her mind, but they are not made up, they are real, especially to her. Imaginary friends can be spirit guides, inter-dimensional beings, angels or people/animals in the astral (spirit) world. The most noticable thing about this child is her understanding. She is very intelligent and she can understand complicated and abstract ideas easily. She may be musical as she has a special understanding of different vibrations. Set the table for her friends, ask her what her friends look like. Ask if her friend wants to go with them when you go out. Don’t put her off and tell her her friends aren’t real. Having friends from different dimensions will teach her to be accepting and naturally able to communicate will all different kinds of people as an adult.
‘My 14-year-old son has this strange ability to know when I’m in pain. He’s never been the most huggy-feely person generally, but when I’m feeling ill or sore in some way, he seems to know. I was sitting in the kitchen with a terrible headache the other day. When he came home from school, he threw his bag on the floor and came over to me and instinctively put both his hands on my head whilst he was telling me about his day. I didn’t say anything but I felt like he was healing me.’
Wow! It sounds like your son is a natural healer. He probably knows nothing about healing because this ability works very much on an energy level without the healer being necessarily aware of it. This boy is probably sporty and active as healing energy is created often by kinetic energy. He is independent, impatient and finds it hard to sit still. He has a heart of gold and will probably do a bungee jump for charity or something along these lines. If you think it wise, tell him about the experience you had with his healing energy. It may give him the confidence to follow a career in looking after people, if that is what is in his heart to do.
These are just some of the kinds of spiritual and sensitive children that you may have in your life. These spiritual types are not exclusive, you may have a child who is a dreamer with imaginary friends, or any combination, they are fluid and can change and grow over time. What is important is that these wonderful mental, emotional and spiritual talents are nurtured and not stifled. As adults, we have no right to shut down and invalidate the beautiful, spiritual experiences of our children. Be amazed by their intuitive abilities: those abilities are teaching them skills that will be valuable to them as healthy, happy adults that have the power to make this world the best world that it can be.
