7 Tips For Helping Intuitive/Psychic Children
Posted byJennifer O'Neill
watching a show on television about psychic children, I thought back to
my own childhood and remembered how frightening it could be. Since I
have had a strong psychic ability my whole life, I never grew up
knowing what it is like to be what people call "normal." I grew up
naturally thinking that everyone was like me. It wasn’t until I got
older that I realized that not everyone had the same abilities as I
did, and I was a little confused. Since birth one of my many psychic
abilities has been claircognizance—I would just "know" things. People
would say, "How do you just know? You can't just know!" Well, you see,
I thought everyone just knew things, so I thought it was weird that
they didn't "know" what I was talking about. I wondered why they
weren't tapping into their own gifts and abilities. As I grew older, I
realized that I was indeed very different. People did not understand
what I was seeing, hearing or what I was trying to explain. It became
frustrating for me so I just stopped talking to them about it.
I became a teenager, I became really skeptical. This is a very natural
occurrence. If you haven’t tried to block your abilities before your
teenage years, this is usually the time it happens. After much
skepticism from friends and adults, I started to question my own
abilities. I began to wonder, “How do I just know things? Other people
don’t just know things. How do I? What makes me different? How do I
know that I am even right?” So I decided to pretend that I was no
longer psychic, easy as that! Well, it’s not so easy. One morning while
I was sitting in class I had a very strong “feeling” that I should go
home early. I thought, whatever, I will just ignore it and it will go
away. Until now I usually followed my feelings because I thought they
were a part of my guidance system. Since this had been the case up
until that day, everything had always worked out fine. But this
particular day, I decided to no longer “know” things. I was determined,
so I shut out all of the thoughts for the rest of the day and ignored
them. I had done a really good job and had even forgotten about it by
the time I was leaving school with a friend. I was about three blocks
away when we got into a four-car accident. That was when I realized
that ignoring “knowing” things did not work for me. That was a huge
lesson! Though my friend and I only had minor injuries, it was the last
time I decided to "challenge" my own abilities.
"coming out of the closet" as a psychic was not easy either. People did
not and still do not always believe that I have the gifts and abilities
that I have. They do not even stop to think that they have some of the
same abilities! That is really interesting to me because I do not think
that I have ever met anyone who has not had his or her own “gut”
feeling about something, at least once. For me, however, this is my
path, and I accept being this way. It is a way of life for me, not
something that I do for fun.
my own children, it was very different. Since I was already a psychic,
my understanding of their gift and my ability to explain to them what
it was they were seeing and hearing was very helpful. From the time
that he was very young, my son would see spirits all over the place. I
remember driving by an empty lot one day, where certain people I knew
had asked me if they should put up a business there. I had told them to
look elsewhere, that the vibration and energy were not good on that lot
and it would affect any business that opened up there. While driving by
the empty lot I asked my son, "What do you see over there?" He said, "A
man in a robe, right there. Oh no, you can't see him anymore. He ran
behind that church!" "What church?" I asked. He looked back and could
no longer see the church. His eyes grew really big, and he asked, "The
church is gone! Why did I see that?" I told him that he was seeing an
old church that was on that piece of property years ago, and the monk
was in the same time frame as the church. He then added he did not like
that area, that it felt weird. His observations were correct. There was
an energy imprint on that piece of property, and a lot of strange
things had happened there over the years, which has not helped to
improve the area.
kids have grown up knowing that the spirits they see are real, and
there is nothing for them to be scared of for they cannot hurt them in
any way. We are spiritual beings. We have always had a lot of spirits
around and about the homes in which we have lived. My kids and I always
talked about the spirits that are in our houses, even the mischievous
ones. This helped my children to understand that they are a part of
life. When my son was little, he used to say, "I feel sorry for people
who do not have spirits around. It must feel lonely." I agree … I like
feeling them around too.
is very important. If you do not know the answers to your children’s
questions, buy a book or talk with someone who might know the answer.
Let them know that all of their questions are good ones. For you and
your children, knowledge is power!
7 Tips For Helping Intuitive/Psychic Children:
are some easy things that I put together to help you with psychic
children. My son and daughter are very well-adjusted kids. They do not
live in fear of their abilities; they live in harmony with them. This
information can help intuitive children live basically "normal" lives
1) Realize that because your child is psychic, it does not mean that he or she is meant to become a professional psychic.
majority of children have psychic abilities, this ability most likely
will not determine their career path. It is meant to be a guidance
system. (This is not the path that my children will take.)
2) It is important to make sure that your children understand what their ability is.
is good for them to know if they are an empath, what an empath is,
etcetera. Also, their gifts and abilities are real and will most likely
always be a part of their everyday life. You want to teach them how to
live in harmony with their abilities and to be comfortable with them.
However, in time they can learn, to some extent, how to tune it out.
3) Make sure that your children know that spirits will not harm them!
It is hard for psychics and intuitives to sleep at night without hearing all kinds of spiritual racket.Keeping the television on helped my son to sleep.(I highly recommend this with sensitive children).Allow
them to listen to SpongeBob or whatever is uplifting and light. I have
had parents say, “I am afraid if I do that, they won’t sleep!” I
promise you, if they are sensitive, they are probably not sleeping now.
This trick will allow them to drift right into a heavy sleep, much more
important then no sleep at all. I do this myself most nights; it drowns
out the noise and gives my mind something else to listen to. Spirits
are active at night, and our minds are very receptive when we are going
to sleep. It is like opening the floodgates to the Other Side.
4) Your children should learn psychic protection.
psychic can be energetically draining. Your children should learn
psychic protection if they need to. If they are not paying attention,
they pick up on other people's energy and take on their emotions
without realizing it. This can happen anywhere, especially in a crowded
area such as a mall or at school. If this is a problem have them
imagine themselves in a bubble surrounded by a white light that does
not allow another’s energy to get through. Then have them ask God to
dissolve other people's energy into the white light of the Holy Spirit.
(I will do another post on this"bubble" and psychic protectionsoon).
Have them do this before you go somewhere crowded. Taking on everyone
else's feelings can make you feel anxious, especially somewhere like a
department store. You can also just choose not to be affected by this.
If you recognize that these feelings are not your own, you can tell
your body that you are calm and healthy. Decide that you will not allow
another person’s emotions to make you feel any differently. You have
control over your own body!
5) It is also important to pay attention to what your children say and to take them seriously.
not disregard what they are saying because they are young. For
instance, if they do not like someone or they are uncomfortable with a
specific situation, there is usually a very valid reason. Children can
sense someone's energy and intentions like nobody's business.
6) You need to let your children know that they are in total control of their abilities.
when you are in tune with your psychic abilities, there is a feeling of
having no control over what you are experiencing. You can ask not to be
shown things that you cannot do anything about or that you have no
control over. For instance, it was very scary when I was younger and
knew that my little brother was going to be in a car accident. I had no
control over this; and I just had to wait and pray that he would be
okay. Luckily, as he drove his car off of a ravine, it happened to land
on the only pile of trees in that area. This barely kept his car from
launching over the hill several hundred feet to the bottom. I asked not
to be shown these things that I have no control over, and have not had
this sort of problem since.
7) Decide if and when to let others know about their abilities.
did discuss with my children that their friends and the parents of
their friends may have a hard time understanding their gifts. I left it
up to them to let their friends know about their abilities or mine.
Remember, your child is psychic; you need to trust his or her judgment.
