For many parents, the realization that their child might be psychic is a bit of a shock – but it needn’t be. Many of us were psychic kids, even if we didn’t know it, because most of us are psychic to some degree or another. There are many ways you might notice that your child is psychic. They might talk to you about spirit people they’ve seen, or perhaps they will start to tell you details about a past life, or tell you about dreams they’ve had which then come true. Don’t panic! Psychic kids are beautiful souls and it’s easy to help your child stay safe and embrace the gifts they have.
The very first thing you must do as a parent is to stay calm, and to treat your child’s abilities in a matter of fact way. Don’t show any fear, but also don’t show particular delight either. Try to show your child, through your steady reaction, that psychic abilities are normal and natural. If you’re interested in psychic matters and spiritualism, you might already know of a spiritualist church near you. It’s always a good idea to seek support there, and if your child is old enough, take them along too. Psychic kids are really reassured by being able to meet and chat with psychics just like them – with your supervision, of course.
Finding Out More and Meeting Others
Some spiritualist churches or centers even have groups for psychic kids and teens, sometimes called lyceums. These are run by experienced mediums, and offering a range of age appropriate spiritual development activities and psychic games each week or month. This is a fantastic way to help your child develop their abilities, and both you and your child will make new friends too.
If your child is of a suitable age, buy, beg or borrow a collection of psychic related books you can read together. Reading psychic articles, websites and books is another great way to “normalize” what is happening to your child, thereby reassuring them as well as encouraging their gifts to grow and develop. Speaking of websites, if your child is a teen, consider creating accounts at some of the popular online psychic communities. Alongside you, your teen can then chat with others and gain insight into how other teens and young adults have managed their gifts. Please bear in mind normal internet safety rules, however, and either stay with your child during their online interaction or, if they are old enough to have unsupervised internet access, ensure that they know how to keep themselves safe.
Encouraging Psychic Development
No matter how old or young your child is, there are a variety of psychic games you can play with them. Even very young children will enjoy trying to “guess” what color crayon you are holding, or what animal you have drawn. Older psychic kids will soon grow to love zener cards, and will often become quite competitive about increasing or bettering their score of “hits”. Teens can be encouraged to use tarot cards or other oracle decks as an interesting way of developing their psychic gifts, and can also try some more advanced telepathy experiments.
Psychic kids have so much to offer the world, and with the right attitude you can help them develop their true potential. What an honor as a parent!
