1. Honesty is the best Policy. Your child will know when you are lying on a subconscious level and this will create confusion for them and lead them to doubt their own inner voice as adults. This sets them up for future low self-esteem and relationship problems.
2. Do not unload your adult problems onto your child. Psychic children are also healers. They are usually wiser then their years. This makes it tempting to confide in them about issues they don’t have the emotional capacity to deal with.
3. Make sure your child has plenty of alone time. Psychic children pick up the emotions of others around them. They need extra time and space to separate from others. They need to not have every second of their time scheduled with social activities.
4. Notice if your child’s tantrums or sour mood corresponds with your own. Children (and adults!) channel the emotions and pain of those closest to them. It doesn’t matter whether these emotions are openly expressed by the parent. This is what makes your child psychic! Try visualizing a separation object in between the two of you. See yourself connected into the earth with a heavy cord, and your child connected in with a different colored one.
5. Be very careful about who your child is exposed to. Adults who are alcoholics, drug addicts or have sexual addictions or mental illnesses often have negative entities attached to them that a psychic child can sense and even fall prey to.
6. Don’t discount their psychic impressions. If your child says she’s just seen a ghost, or has a feeling someone is going to have an accident, or tells you something about yourself that is embarrassing, do not deny this or tell them it’s their imagination. Instead ask them how they arrived at that conclusion and show interest in what they are saying. You don’t need to do anything more.
7. Guide your child to use his imagination to fight his monsters. When your child has a bad dream, or is fearful about something he has just seen, lead him/her in a quick meditation where he has superpowers that help him to defeat the monster. For example, if he dreams a monster chased him down the street, have him go back into the dream and imagine that he turns on the monster and chases him instead, perhaps with a large sword, wearing a superhero costume. Then let your child decide the final outcome.
8. Don’t encourage your child to read other people. If your child is spontaneously getting psychic impressions, encourage her to communicate these to you before sharing them with others so you can decide together the best course of action. Children will often project their fears or ideas onto their intuitive information and therefore it’s best for them to not become professional psychics until they have reached a certain level of emotional maturity.
9. Remember: Our imaginations are never just imaginations! Our imaginations are vehicles to both view psychic information (i.e. a ghost or knowledge about someone’s fate) and manipulate it for healing (i.e., getting rid of the ghost, performing an energy healing).
10. Don’t forget to have fun together! You and your child can play psychic games. Try to read each others minds or take turns hiding an object in a box at a remote location and see who is more psychic!
