Deceased Children: Do They Grow Up in the Afterlife?
When a child crosses over, there is a ripple effect that occurs throughout the physical and spiritual worlds.
Most children go immediately into the Afterlife, with the support of their Loved Ones and Guides which are present at the time of death to help escort them to the Other Side.
In my experience doing readings, I’ve found that there are a variety of different outcomes as to what can happen to a child, once they do go into Spirit.
And in this post, I wanted to help explain that.
There are 3 Possible Scenarios That Occur When a Child Crosses
When a child crosses over immediately into Spirit, they grow up in the Spirit World.
Thus, if you have a 7 yr old child that passed 30 years ago, they are now 37 years old in Spirt.
During this time, they have gone to school, made friends and learned the life lessons they would have learned on earth, but in the Spirit World. In many cases, a deceased child also provides input and assists on the guide team to one of their surviving siblings, parents or friends they had while on earth.
When a child doesn’t cross over and becomes earthbound, they remain a child.
Children, especially those who have yet to understand the concept of death, can become earthbound. This happens especially in cases where their parents are in an incredible amount of grief and do not want the child to ‘go.' A child, feeling guilt and wanting their parents to be happy, will then stay on earth - and continue to stay on earth - until the eventual death of their parents.
At which point, this child will then find other playmates - generally living children in the neighborhood who can both see and hear them.
Welcome, the world of imaginary friends.
When a child crosses into Spirit before 3 years of age, they become an Angel to the parent*
In cases of miscarriage, abortion, pre-term pregnancies and a young child passing, these individuals have come forward in readings to reveal they are a guide/angel for the mother. They continue to act as a guide/angel on the Spirit Team of the mother throughout the rest of the mother’s life.
I have not been able to figure out a solid answer on whether these babies were *always* guides to the mother (and they came into to the Mother’s physical life for a time to initiate a spiritual lesson or awakening), or if they became guides to the mother later on, after their physical death. The answer to this is still forthcoming.
*a deceased loved one acting as a guide/angel for a living person is not uncommon, as this can happen when anyone who is close to you, and is in your soul group, crosses over.
