In case you were wondering, some sensitive children (including autistic children) can sense the spirit world. Every day, I have people who find my blog because I touched upon this topic with this post, which I’ve quoted below, so I can continue the dialogue that I started.
A mom recently started writing about raising two sensitive boys at A Tale of Two Crystals. Her sons hear and see spirits, and I’m very interested to have a dialogue with this mom since I haven’t met many moms who write about their psychic children’s experiences.
My son talks about seeing angels. And also talks about “bad dreams” being in his room. I, of course, believe that sensitive children can really see and sense spirits that most people cannot.
I know that we are not the only ones. Alex’s mom of Alex’s Journey out of Autism, believes that her son had difficulty sleeping in his room because of sensing a ghost in his room. And, Alexis at Taking the Lid off the Sun discusses tips for alleviating the fear of nighttime visitors for sensitive children who can sense spirits.
I had comments from two of my regular readers who also shared with me that their children can sense spirits, and one of them, Tamara from The Morales Crew, shared some great insights.
Thank you for this post! I know we are not alone out there, but like you said it is rare to see someone openly post about it.
Our Eden is sensitive in many ways and being aware of people’s energy, other sources of energy (spirits), and being able to tell us things that will happen in the future is part of that.
I have to wear a rose quartz bracelet because she is actually very sensitive to my anxious energy and if I do not wear it we start to clash. She also wears a rose quartz necklace and sleeps with a rose quartz rock to help her feel more balanced. She tells us it takes her angry away and soothes her. She is also very sensitive to roomfuls of people because she can pick up on things most people do not feel. She just turned five and for awhile now she talks about being able to change her dreams, sees things in the sky that no one else does, and when we smudge our house with sage she will say bye to people and open the door to let them out. Smudging also brings her peace and she will take a huge breathe in and smile saying she feels better.
Since she was little she would tell us things that are going to happen. It started out with her predicting when it would rain at about 18 months old. Then it progressed to talking about things that we had no idea what she meant and then a few days later it all made perfect sense because whatever she said would actually happen. She even found our current house for us.
I firmly believe that her sensitivities to food, medicine, toxins in vaccines, toxins in our home all are directly related to her being able to sense much more then most people. Simply put she is hyper-sensitive to all aspects of her environment.
I will never forget when an acquaintance of mine observed Eden for a few hours at a mutual friend’s BBQ and later messaged me via FB asking if she could talk to me about my daughter. She had never met her before or heard from anyone, including me, about her but instead of taking offense I listened with an open mind. What she had to say was amazing. This woman was also sensitive and the minute Eden walked by her when we arrived to the BBQ she said she knew Eden also felt things most people do not. She was able to explain to me what was going on with Eden and how some of her behavioral issues, that she could tell were happening without ever a mention, were because Eden was being overwhelmed by all she was having to process. I appreciated her input greatly and took all her advice to heart. Funny, because this woman does not have children, but her insight to how to deal with a sensitive child was spot on. The rose quartz was actually her idea and that has been a life saver.
Recently I had a Healing Through Touch practitioner over and Eden instantly sensed that this lady had different energy then the average person. Eden refused to be near her at all and and the practitioner explained that it could be because her healing energy may actually be too overwhelming for Eden to cope with. Thankfully the practitioner completely understood and did not attempt to force any interaction with Eden.
I always mention to people that if Eden was born to other parents who were not as open minded and understanding of her difference as we are she would most likely either have been harmed or put on medications already. I truly believe she picked us because she knew we would understand her, appreciate her, and love her no matter what.
We recently noticed our youngest daughter, Lily, who is two and half start to show her own types of sensitivities for energies too. Not as pronounced as Eden’s, but we think there is something there. Funny because she had food allergies and cannot tolerate a lot of the same things as Eden, so I do believe there could be a link of some sort between the two things in some people.
I resonate and agree with everything that Tamara mentions, in particular: “I firmly believe that her sensitivities to food, medicine, toxins in vaccines, toxins in our home all are directly related to her being able to sense much more then most people. Simply put she is hyper-sensitive to all aspects of her environment.”
This is part of the gift that our sensitive children bring. They can see and sense so much more than most of us can.
On most nights, Moses talks about seeing angels in his room. There are angels all over his room. The truth is that I don’t see them (I’m clairsenient [I can sense energies], but not clairvoyant). Moses appears to be clairsenient, clairvoyant and claircognizant. He clearly feels, sees and knows.
I’m currently doing a ritual that welcomes three healing angels into our home for five days. He asked me why the candle was lit and I told him it was in honour of the three healing angels that had come to visit us.
He said , “Mom…. (talking slowly to me, like I’m a bit simple)… There’s more than three angels in this room. There are hundreds of angels in this room. They are all over the place. Look — some of them are even coming in through the [closed] door”. And he laughed.
All this to say that, yes, children can sense and see angels and other spirits. If your child is one of them, I feel it’s important to acknowledge that they can see and sense spirits, so that they keep that channel of intuition, knowing and connection to Spirit open. This is an amazing gift.
I feel that all people have the ability to develop these skills, but if we allow our children to keep these channels open, then they don’t need to spend years rediscovering them later on in life.
