I Think My Child Sees Spirits. What Do I Do?
Growing up as a psychic child, I didn’t exactly have a support system of people or individuals who wanted to see my abilities flourish or who were even ready to understand them. Even though psychic gifts were acknowledged and accepted in my family as running through the generations - no one ever talked about them. In fact, we were told to never speak about them.
The more and more I saw Spirit and expressed what I saw vocally, the more and more I was told to just go back to bed. And actually, I didn’t really want anyone to understand - I simply wanted someone to listen to what I had seen, someone to comfort me.
If you’ve found this article - you’re someone who wants to understand. And you’re already making the steps to provide your child with the love, support and understanding they need as they make sense of their abilities.
Before we move any further - if you think your child can see, sense or hear Spirit - they can.
If you’ve caught your child looking to areas of the room where no one is standing and laughing or smiling, if your child has started talking to imaginary friends, if your child has run to you in fear of something in their bedroom, if your child has started talking about shadows or children who have passed down the street - they can see Spirit.
We all can when we are born.
We are born onto earth as Spirit, only placed into a physical body while here on Earth. So, actually, we have a little Soul before we even have a little body.
And the longer we stay on the physical world, the more we learn how to act and behave on the physical world from other people, from our culture. In western societies, the common culture is to acknowledge only that which is seen, heard and felt - from the physical world.
Children who are still talking about Spirit are in a way, still living ‘in the past’, in the world of Spirit - with the ability to see, feel and sense both world. It’s a lot like moving from coastal California to Ohio.
Imagine your child, instead of coming to earth from Spirit, has come to Ohio from California.
Your child, when they first arrive in Ohio, are still thinking things will be exactly like they are in California - with coastal breezes, dune sands and endless sunshine. And as they share this information with the residents of Ohio, people may start to say,
“We don’t have that here. That’s not real. We don’t know what ocean you’re talking about because we’ve always lived in Ohio. Stop talking about this California place - it’s not real.”
Then, as children get older, rather than hanging onto the belief and knowledge that California is a real place from which they came, they start to tell themselves this too,
“You live in Ohio now. California isn’t real.”
This is how many adults have shut down and turned off their spiritual or psychic gifts.
Then, one day in Ohio, a storm comes in that blows a breeze off a lake - the air is salty, cool and the wind is strong. The child, recently moved from California, runs to the nearest adult and says, “What I feel, hear, sense right now is like California!”
They can still see, hear and sense a Spirit.
In sharing with you their experience, they are telling you what they sense is real and exists them - whether or not it currently exists for you.
And here’s the thing. We’re all from this California place and have moved to Ohio. We’re all from the Spirit world and have moved to Warth. The longer each of us stays on earth, in Ohio, for most of us, we become jaded. We forget all about our California days and start druging along, going to work, getting groceries and just trying to get by, in Ohio.
If your child senses, feels and hears Spirit - and they are sharing it with you - let them share the information. Listen to what they describe the ocean may be like, because it could start to jog your memory of the ocean, too. In other words, children who see Spirit often have parents with similar ability. Even if their parents have been living in Ohio for a long time, not once thinking about California since they moved, it’s possible to begin to sense, feel and hear Spirit again, too.
Think your Child sees Spirit?
1. Learn about it.
As much as you can, read and learn everything you can on the ability to see, hear and feel spirit. This blog is dedicated to helping adult people who can perceive spirit (mediums) do just that - and you’re an adult person. The best way to understand and help someone is by learning about what they are going through. No matter how foreign to you it may seem, even quantum physics can become semi-understandable if you read enough about it.
Start with the articles about how to sense, see and hear Spirit - learn how that happens and learn how you can do it, too. Because you can. This ability commonly runs in families. Your child, also has parents originally from California (the world of Spirit) - it’s just that they are the newest immigrant from Spirit World - so all the signs and symbols of Spirit are fresh in their mind and easier to see, feel and experience.
2. Teach them about Boundaries
The people in California are just like the people in Ohio - the only difference here is that in one place - these people have bodies and in the other place - they don’t right now. So, whenever you are interacting with people of any kind, you need to make some personal boundaries.
These personal boundaries state how you wish to be treated, how to deserve to be respected, who you will and won’t interact with and when. When are friends allowed over? What type of friends can come by? When can they show up?
To restore some peace to your house and your child’s life, it’s important to know that you can always decide who you interact with, for how long and when. Maybe you don’t take phone calls after bedtime, well, also let Spirit know there are no visitors after dark! Learn how to set boundaries with Spirit here.
3. Locate Support
The next and most important thing you can do is locate a support system for your child - someone to listen, understand and believe them - without judgement. It could also be a local group of psychic children and their parents, it could be a message board. Whatever and whoever it is, everyone needs to feel understood and deserves someone to talk to, someone who understands.
You can be this person. But if you aren’t ready yet - don’t worry. Just find someone who can and who is less attached, until you are ready. Find a family friend, a relative or a sister.
