How Children See into Other Realms, by Melissa Leath


Janet told me that she used to have “floating people” in her room. She was too young to know that adults refer to them as spirits or ghosts.

Some children see strange things, like orbs of light or sparkles, possibly auras or rainbow streaks of energy. Others see spirit entities, such as angels, spirit guides, and the spirits of other people who have passed away. Quite often, these strange or different abilities can frighten the child when it happens. It is important to sooth their fears and help them understand that there are answers.

Why do children see entities that are invisible to the rest of us?

As we become adults, we develop a different perception of reality. As adults, we are programmed to discard certain images, noises, and feelings as unreal, especially if they are not scientifically proven or socially accepted. Many of us have programmed our intellect to doubt our intuition. Most children have not had the chance to train their perception to correspond with these adult versions.

Many parents teach their children at a very young age to block psychic images. Humans feel better when we all experience things in similar ways. They may tell their children that imaginary friends are not real, and that visions are just bad dreams. This sends a message to the child that they should mistrust what they actually experience, and instead rely on adult reality. It robs children of a sense of self-trust that they will definitely need to find their way in the world.

We all have telepathic abilities and use this as a method of communication to send messages even when we are not aware of doing so. You may think of an old friend that you haven’t connected with in years and in the next day or so you get an email or phone call from them. The two of you connected telepathically (which I like to call the Field of Synchronicity) and this mental “signal” brought about an urge to take action and connect physically.

But many children are experiencing much more than that. They may unconsciously move between both the psychic realms and the physical realms at the same time. They may even recognize parallel universes, alternate realities, and multiple dimensions all layered together at once. They may not be able to distinguish between our familiar third dimension and the many layers of “other worlds”. It becomes difficult to make sense of it all, or to even know that other people do not experience it the same way!

As a result, your child may see spirit beings or entities from other dimensions or realities right in front of their eyes, (not knowing that our “normal” vision doesn’t register this anomaly).

Imagine what it would be like if you were in your living room with your parents. But also your great grandmother (who died 10 years ago) was there, as well as several pets from spirit, and other people you never saw before (from a parallel universe) just walking around and being there at the same time. You might even see several outdoor scenes with mountains, waterfalls and meadows. There could be sheep or cows in the meadow, too. See what I mean?

This is not only challenging and confusing for children, but perhaps overwhelming in a more material world where psychic and spiritual phenomena are rarely acknowledged.

Meg was in bed and sobbing uncontrollably. She was scared because she saw my mother, who passed away last year. I obviously couldn’t see her, but I told her not to be scared. That she might there to protect her. But I am so very concerned…

Mediumistic Tendencies

Many children coming into the world now are coming with an acute sense of awareness: Not only about physical things, but about metaphysical things. By that, I mean the children are seeing with their spiritual eyes. They feel with their spiritual senses; they even hear with spiritual ears.

I know, for some of you it does not always make sense. But when you realize that humans are not only physical beings but have spirit and mind, you can understand that there are perceptions on those other levels too. The mind and the spirit also have awareness.

A medium works with spirit energy, or a lighter frequency than the earth plane, and connects with spirit, usually loved ones that have died, spirit guides and higher entities. Mediumship is being aware of the vibrations of spirit beings, and receiving messages from them. It is the communication of a deceased loved one through an intermediary. The information is then given to those who are grieving the loss. The main purpose is to provide recognition of continuing life after the physical death, and to send love and encouragement.

Other reasons spirit beings open communication with the living are to give evidential information only acknowledged by those still in the body. They create outward activities perceived by humans in a physical manner.

These activities are often recognized as paranormal activity. They manifest in physical form to be identified. Just because the child sees and communicates with spirits, does not mean he is a medium. It only means he has mediumistic tendencies. These abilities need to be honed, practiced and mentored, to be understood and used properly.

Many young children, who recognize spirits, see them all the time and can be very overwhelmed by it. Many professional mediums, on the other hand access the spirit world at specific times, on purpose. The child can learn to open and shut their abilities as needed.

There are many differences between parents who don’t really understand what is going on and their children who don’t know how to explain it. The more you can read about the subject and communicate with your children, the easier it is for all concerned. Always be supportive and let your children know you are there for them.

Open and Close Energy Exercise

  1. Sit quietly with your child and pay attention to your breathing.
  2. When you feel comfortable and relaxed, pretend there is a huge, bright star shining above your head.
  3. The star shines so brightly that you feel warm from the shine of it.
  4. Say out loud, “I am opening my energy to see, feel, or hear my spirit guides, angels, and loved ones.”
  5. Enjoy whatever communication you see, hear or feel.
  6. When you are finished, say out loud, “Thank you very much. I am now closing my energy. I do not want to see, hear or feel right now.”
  7. Finish your exercise by seeing the star shine getting smaller and closing up.

How Do You Handle This? 

Parents can feel all types of emotions from being paralyzed with fear, to being curious and supportive when their child reports seeing ghosts. If their children are scared by encounters with the spirit world, parents naturally fret about how to best help their kids through this fear. This may be a challenge since fear can be so intense that it causes the child – and sometimes the parent – to become physically sick from it.

If, on the other hand, the child feels open and comfortably connected to the world of ghosts or spirits, then parents may feel less apprehensive. Either way, parents are sure to be baffled about how to proceed.

The younger the child is, the more natural the response is to the phenomena. This is proof enough to me that it is real, since it is an honest response.

I have known and worked with other children who see, or hear, or feel things that are different from the normal physical things we are comfortable experiencing. Children do not see limitation. They see things of a spiritual-realm nature. It is natural and normal. It exists, whether we see with our physically limited eyes or not. Our children these days are coming into the world totally aware of the spirit realm. They see no limitation. We must be alright with that, because it shows how wonderfully our human race is evolving!

But as many kids as there are that have psychic experiences, each one will be different, with specific indications and characteristics. Each indication or characteristic may need a specialized approach depending on the child involved.

Each child is raised in a certain family, with genetic history, cultural and social backgrounds. So the approach to their experiences will be different. So it’s important not to compare your child’s experience with that of other children.

You are very blessed to have a child that is open and sharing with the things they see or witness.

How to Navigate Your Spiritual Roadmap

Why Your Energetic Cords Could Be Holding You Back from Success

All the best,

Tarotscopes: October 2015 with The Collective Tarot

Monthly Theme

Oppression (The Devil)

Isn’t it fascinating how we make things harder on ourselves than they really need to be? I want you to stop for a moment, breathe in the cool autumn air, and take notice of where you feel resistance in your body and life. Ask yourself: How am I being oppressed? How am I contributing to my own oppression? Shine the light on this pain. Cast it to the wind and watch it scatter into the bones of trees and leaves. This is your time to rise, thrive and grow. Your past pain is nothing more than steps toward your infinity.

Aries March 21-April 19

Change (The Wheel)

A powerful wind of change is blowing into your life. Will you open your arms and take to the sky? Will you let yourself move and bend with the ancient trees, and the memories of the year? Put your troubles into the leaves, and let them be swept up into the night. Release all your resistance. This could be a bumpy ride… unless you let yourself slow grind with the Wheel of the year.

Taurus April 20-May 20

6 of Bones (6 of coins)

Taurus you are entering a new phase of your life. You have fought the good fight, and you have struggled long enough. Stand-back and revel in the riches you have manifested. The seed has been planted, and the gifts are beginning to bloom. You are empowered. Can you stay in this state of grace? Be mindful of your creeping suspicions, your doubts and your worries. Remember, you have done it! Rest, relax and ease into this flow. Don’t question your power… just smile at it.

Gemini May 21-June 21

Intermission (The Hanged Man)

Step outside of your two selves, Gemini. Step right here into the in-between place that lives behind your head, heart and spirit. Project on the big, black screen of awareness everything that you are feeling. Where are you stuck? Where you are struggling? Where are you being rigid? Where are you in pain? I urge you to take these moments of reflection daily. The energy of October seduces you into stillness, and begs you to gestate.

Cancer June 21-July 22

The Sun

Can you feel the warm embrace of the Universe on your checks? Let all the good mojo swirling through the atmosphere kiss your lips, and ease your heart. You are in the warm glow of creation, of divine providence. Remember, there is power in rest, and acknowledgment of your good and accomplishments. Sunday is the traditional day of rest. Make a weekly ritual of feeling this warm embrace for at least a few minutes. This will multiply in no time.

Leo July 23-August 22

Ace of Bones (Ace of Coins)

There is light in the cracks of your doubt. Gaze into the glow. Look deeply into yourself, your motives, and your intentions. Are you in alignment with your highest good? The outer world usually reflects our inner state. What story are you telling? You may be trying too hard to find your footing, believing that you are falling, swirling, spiraling out of bounds… when really you have solid earth beneath you. Let the cracks crumble to reveal the power behind your eyes.

Virgo August 23-September 22

6 of Keys (6 of Wands)

What have you been battling, Virgo? Do you know when the battle is won? Have you been clear about what you are really working toward? Do not get caught in the details. The details usually confuse our feelings, and our feelings express to the Universe where we are, and what we want. Give up the ghost, stop raging against the storm. Look your opponents in the eyes, smile, and say… we are both winners. Can you give up control and let the battle become a dance?

Libra September 23-October 22

8 of Feathers (8 of Swords)

Thoughts and feelings are falling around you like acid rain. You are feeling bound up, and blindfolded. You are shadowed by your own fears, your desires, and your relentless need to be in control. Has that worked thus far? Do you feel the knot around your wrist? Tug gently and the ropes will fall free. You are not a prisoner. Rather than fear the darkness of unknowing, step into it and marry the night. Marry the wind, the rain, the water, and all the pain. You cannot go around the door you can only step through.

Scorpio October 23-November 21

Artist of Feathers (Queen of Swords)

Scorpio, there is a longing at lives in the root of your throat. This is your immanent need to express yourself, to share your truth, to live your art. You may not feel comfortable in the ephemeral world of feelings, and self-expression, but you have been asking for the key to liberation. Close your eyes sing yourself a little lullaby. Rage a little, rock a little, and live a little. Sometimes all it takes to raise the wind are the subtlest acts of radical self-expression.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

10 of Feathers (10 of Swords)

You have flown to high, and now you are falling from the sun. Sagittarius, we must put all your feathers back into place, and give you your wings. The birds never migrate by calculating with logic, they operate from instinct. Tap into your primordial self and ask the simple question: which way is up? You can never truly lose your way, rather you forget which way is yours, and which way is “theirs”.

Capricorn December 22-January 19

10 of Keys (10 of Wands)

Somewhere in the corridors of your soul is a forgotten room, a lock with a missing key. Here is the shrine of your broken dreams, your longings and your desperation. Maybe you locked them away because you forgot your beauty. Maybe you locked them away because you didn’t feel good enough, strong enough, brave enough, or worthy. The ghost of your longing will eventually slip through the cracks, down the hall, and from the shadows. Fear not their presence rather befriend them. Sit with them. Dine with the ghost. Give them tea. And let them show you how beautiful, and talented you really are.

Aquarius January 20-February 18

The Lovers

There are always two paths to go down, Aquarius. The path that leads to your heart, and the path that leads to your shadow. Will you hold the ancient talisman of love in your hand, cradling it with all the reverence and love you can muster? The love is never far behind, no the love never lays outside of you; rather the love burns with in. Touch the flames of love, ignite the fodder, and blaze into your exulted glory.

Pisces February 19-March 20

10 of Bottles (10 of Cups)

Dance tiny dancer, dance long and hard into your dreaming. Dance like the mermaid in her kingdom of fluid mysteries. Let the warm waters of the Universe seduce you, let them move around you and through you. You are experiencing an act of spiritual cleansing, and infusion of love, and connection. Expect good things, and good things will come. And know that you will share this with many beautiful mermaids.

Lunar Visions, Denver, and Tea Leaf Reading Adventures

DragonTeaLets put up a soul hand for the powerful energy of the Full Moon in Aries. So much good energy, and transition is in the air. The Lunar eclipse inspired a feeling of going inward, and creating equilibrium in the areas that desperately need our attention. Personally this gave me a chance to see, and understand a few key areas of my creative life.

I was fortunate enough to fly through the night sky with the Full Moon. I took a red eye home from Denver after a week of gypsy adventures in my favorite city. I had the chance to teach a few classes… including the famous Gypsy Tea Party. As well as befriend some beautiful new souls.

The Gypsy Tea party never stops inspiring me. Every time I get the chance to speak with a group of people, and explore Tasseography, I am moved. So much joy, and so much good energy builds in these classes. And I have found that each person really gains a new understanding of their inner world, and their imagination.

Whenever we explore the teacup we are going into the sacred dreamtime, and tapping into the fertile world of our psyche. I love seeing people’s faces as they start to explore the clouds in their cup. Finding shapes, and making intuitive leaps. The imagination is a powerful healing tool, and tea leaf reading gives us the canvas to paint our inner world.

Not only are we learning the sacred art of storytelling through tea leaf reading, but we are also reestablishing communication with the lost parts of our inner knowing. We are giving ourselves a sacred moment to bypass the logical mind, and dive right into the pool of our spirit.

Tea leaf reading moves us into the neither regions. We begin to trance, lose time, and explore just like children. There is no right or wrong, there is only adventure. So many people have found the missing links to their soul, and the steps to move forward with their lives… all in the bottom of a tea cup.

Have you ever explored the art of tea leaf reading?

Have you attend a Gypsy Tea Party?

I urge you to try it! Come join me for the next Gypsy Tea Party, or have a one on one reading. You will be moved by the experience.

Psychic Children and Dreamtime Adventures, by Shaheen Miro

The Latest article from the Psychic Kids Series

Originally posted on The Go Between: Psychics, Mediums and Integrity by Melissa Leath:


This article is another great addition to our “Kids Growing Up Psychic” Series

Dreams, nightmares, and other curious experiences are common for psychic children. When you are sleeping you become open, and receptive to the unseen world. The protective guards that have been thrown up now come down, and it is easy to navigate the invisible world. For the psychic child this is playtime.

Sleep is a time for the body to rest, and actually allows the logical mind to shut down, so that the intuitive self can come through. This is why most psychic children have flamboyant and other worldly dreams. As your psychic child is sleeping, he or she is exploring the levels of the astral world, and connecting with their psychic wisdom.

Some parents will fear these experiences because they feel unable to help their child. Especially when these experiences are frightening, such as nightmares, or strange…

Tarotscopes: September 2015 with The Ancestral Path Tarot

Monthly Theme

King of Sacred Circles (King of Coins)

September marks an energetic shift in the atmosphere. Opportunities are unfolding, and doors are beginning to open. You now have the chance to move closer to your intention, and further from your pain. Will you choose love, or will you choose fear? There will be evidence of your handwork. Manifestations are appearing everywhere. Show gratitude, and begin to say yes to the things that are appearing before you. This will be especially true in matters of money, career, finances and stability.

Aries March 21-April 19


Aries, rise above the waking world. Look beyond what you can see. Step into the sacred dreamtime. In these twilight hours you will find answers to questions. Secrets are revealed. Finally you will have clarity about you, and your place in the world. Do not become too attached to these pearls of wisdom, they will surly shift with the tides of the Universe. Just be here with this experience. Just be, and you will be on purpose.

Taurus April 20-May 20

The Moon

Tap into your core to find your survival mechanism. You have within you a navigation system that lives in the deepest part of your soul. Buried under many layers of your consciousness is your subconscious mind. In this dark and fertile space you have locked away exaggerations, and even treasures of your being. What parts of you are fighting to escape? To be acknowledged? Stop for a moment to listen to these soul whispers. Forget the outside voices, your inner voice will help you find the way.

Gemini May 21-June 21

8 of Cups

You are on a powerful path of discovery. You may come face to face with a few things you weren’t expecting, but Gemini in these moments of surprise you find inspiration. Right now is a time to be alone. Go on your inward journey, and let your wisest voice rise above the cacophony of other voices trying to manipulate your mind. If you closed your eyes in retreat to your sacred space, what would you find there?

Cancer June 21-July 22

Ace of Sacred Circles (Ace of Coins)

Cancer, you stand at the start of a great adventure. Before you are resources, and tools that you need to embark on this journey of self-discovery and transformation. In this time you will establish your foundation, make a name for yourself, solidify part of your destiny. Whatever you seek is before you, be brave, reach out your hand, and receive it. Hold in your heart the intention of respect, gratitude and reverence for yourself, and those whom you’ll meet on this journey.

Leo July 23-August 22

The Magician

Ground and center. Make your intention that of equilibrium. Learn to combine the creative power, and potential of the four elements: earth, air, fire and water. These are the building blocks of life. These are the active powers of creation, abundance and manifestation. What are you reaching for? How are you aligning yourself to it? Do you fully understand all the thoughts, ideas and emotions at play here? Get to the heart of it, only then can you move forward.

Virgo August 23-September 22

King of Swords

You are beautiful, intelligent, and independent. Knowing that you are in grace is a powerful form of living. Practice feeling your divinity, and your grace. Rather than pushing yourself forcefully into new territory, learn how to flow. There is no need to exert mental control, rather seek to share your unique perspective. You feed your ideas by sharing them. Your ideas will be charged, and growing stronger, more deliberate until the manifest into life.

Libra September 23-October 22

The Star

Free yourself, Libra. Step outside, into the nighttime, into the limitless and just feel your expansion. Stop battling the world around you. Surrender to the jewels of your spirit by honoring your intuition. All that you desire in the sacred dreamtime will begin to manifest here in the waking reality. Be conscientious of those around you as the coming months unfold you will be surprised by who is actually a wise teacher in disguise.

Scorpio October 23-November 21

The Chariot

You have the green light: GO! Take the reins, swiftly moving forward with your goals. Assert yourself in a way that is graceful, and authentic. Domineering attempts to convince will be shot down. At this time you wield the powerful forces of dark and light. Your outer and inner worlds will come into alignment if you allow them. Fight this flow and you will be left behind.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

3 of Staves

Your inner work is ready to be revealed. Step into the light, snap back to reality, and share what you have been doing in your alone time. Begin to integrate this powerful change into everyday life. Share your knowledge. Now is a time of communication, and commitment to expressing, and networking. You may find yourself stationary for awhile. Learn to stay in this place, rather than gallivanting from one place to another.

Capricorn December 22-January 19

Prince of Swords (Knight of Swords)

Take time for inner work. Action and domination are at play in your life, before the swords comes down, sealing your fate… be aware of what you are signing on to. You will be held accountable for your life, and what you have created. It is essential now to find mental and emotional discipline. Find time to go inward and swim in the cool waters of your spirit. This respite before the fall out will help sustain you.

Aquarius January 20-February 18

5 of Staves

You are gathering resources, and planning great things. The creative potential to do the impossible is now at your fingertips. You feel the pulse, the tingle… the call to action. Link yourself with something bigger. Maybe finding a group, or social network would help you expand. Or asking the right people to help you do the right things for your creative endeavors. However you approach the next few steps of your life… know that you are on to something powerful.

Pisces February 19-March 20

10 of Staves

You have been crushing under the pressure of your responsibilities. Most of your pain is self-created. This isn’t a criticism; it is a point of power calling you to action. You are in control of your own wellbeing. Lay down the pounds of pain, release the poison and let yourself heal. The secret to getting past your hurdles is to look behind you. If you open your eyes you will see there are many beautiful souls waiting to help you. Just say the words! You are not alone.

How to Prepare a Crystal Bath for Empaths

“Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.”

-5 Tips for the Thriving Empath, Shaheen

It is essential for empathic people to take time for rest and relaxation. This is how you disconnect from harmful energies, and recharge yourself so that you feel more vital. I urge you to make a daily ritual of this. You will find yourself improving every day.

A powerful way to recharge your essence, and bring yourself to center is through the ritual of bathing. Bathing has been a powerful form of energetic cleansing for thousands of years, and it offers you a chance to charge your energy with good intention.

Adding crystals to your bathwater will create a unique vibration that can infuse the aura, and invigorate the spirit. I have created a simple bath for empaths. Try this and see how you feel.

Crystal Bath for Empaths

Gather 3 crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz.

Citrine is the path opener stone. It pushes out negative vibrations and enhances the aura to a state of wellbeing. Amethyst is a stone of protection, and clarity, opening the third eye to help with clear intuitive perception. Amethyst will also act as a vacuum for holding unnecessary energies. Rose Quartz is a heart stone, releasing any bound up energies that may be clogging the heart center.

Combined together, these 3 stones create a calming, healing and stabilizing vibration that will benefit anyone, especially the empath.

Also gather essential oils of lavender, rosemary and geranium.

To create your sacred bath fill you tube half full with warm water. Make sure that the temperature suites a relaxing state of mind. This is a type of meditation, and isn’t meant for bathing with soap. You are creating a sacred moment.

Add to the water 3-5 drops of each oil. Be sure to do this as the water runs, dropping them under the spout so that the oils are dispersed evenly through the bath. You can even drop the oils in ½ cup of witch hazel, and then pour them into the bath.

Now place each stone into the water, focusing on their specific vibration. Ask for their energies to infuse the bath, and charge your aura to bring you into equilibrium, and honor your highest good.

When the bath is ready, simply step in and sink down. Let yourself melt into the calming presence of the scents of the botanicals, the vibration of the crystals and the serenity of being alone, and in the moment.

Release anything that seems to be troubling you. Imagine that it is flowing out, into the water, and transformed by the healing properties. Let yourself be filled with light, and vitality. Feel this in every fiber of your being. You are glowing.

Set an intention for yourself. Affirm that you are safe, balanced and whole. Affirm that you are in this moment, now… fully present, open to the shift, and completely deserving of this gift.

Stay there for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you like. When you are finished express a feeling of gratitude. Towel yourself dry, and turn in for the evening.

5 Tips for the Thriving Empath

Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.

The reality of the empath can be confusing and painful because they tend to take the weight of the world on their shoulders. On a vibratory level, empathic people are highly attuned, meaning that they can tap into things that others may not. Usually they are more introverted, and need reprieve form the world around them.

Stillness, rest, and retreat are the necessity of the empath, yet empathic people seldom create the space for this in their lives. Usually this is the result of not knowing that you are experiencing life through empathic awareness. But now you have validation that you are not alone, nor are you “too sensitive”. Actually you have been given a fine-tuned gift, a type of navigation system to guide you through the world, and down the path to your highest good!

5 Tips for the Thriving Empath

  1. Stay grounded in your daily life.
  2. Take time for rest, regeneration and stillness.
  3. Eat foods that ground you such as root vegetables, nuts, and stone fruits.
  4. Set an intention for yourself each day that expresses your highest good.
  5. Say no to things that deplete your energy, always asking yourself: Is this feeding my spirit?
