Is My Child Psychic? 10
Ways That Abilities Emerge
by Sara Wiseman
There’s been a lot of talk about psychic and paranormal kids in
current movies, television, and books. The truth is, most kids today
have intuitive and spiritual gifts! It’s a whole new kind of
intelligence that lets children understand and process things
differently—at school, with peers and at home.
For parents, it can seem confusing. But once you
understand what to look for, intuitive and spiritual gifts aren’t hard
to spot. While these abilities may "cluster" differently in individual
children, here are some traits to watch for:
- Is your child highly sensitive or
- Is he imaginative, creative, or a "right brain"
- Does your child get the "vibe" of people and
situations, even total strangers?
- Is she affected by crowds or noisy places?
- Does she sometimes say she’s been to a place
before, even though you know she hasn’t?
- Does he have an imaginary playmate, or say he
- Does she have a deep knowledge of her ancestors,
and you’re not sure how?
- Does your child say he sees ghosts?
- Does she experience noises, flashes of light, or
other unexplainable occurrences?
- Is your child deeply attracted to animals, or has
a "way" with them?
- Does she feel an urge to put her hands on things
to help or heal them?
- Can your child see auras?
- Does your child have especially vivid dreams?
- Does your child understand the teachings of Jesus,
Buddha, and other Holy Ones, and you aren’t sure where she got the
If you answered yes to even a few of these questions,
it’s likely your child has emerging psychic or spiritual gifts. It goes
without saying that if you’re the parent or caretaker of a child who’s
showing abilities like these, you’ll want more information—fast! But
before we delve into the what’s and how’s of intuitive abilities,
there’s something that you need to know. Basically: Psychic development and spiritual
giftedness are the same thing.
other words, if you head down the path of psychic
development long enough, you’re going to become spiritually aware. And
if you head down the path of spiritual practice long enough, you’re
going to become psychic. That’s because both abilities stem from the
same source—the Divine. You access them through
Source/One/God/All/Love/Light—whichever name you choose to use. If you
head down one road, you’ll eventually reach the other.
This applies to your child. And also to you.
Moving Beyond Labels
I get frustrated when I see quizzes meant to quantify psychic abilities
in kids. There is more to the souls of our beautiful, glorious children
than tallying points on how psychic or spiritual they are!
But more importantly, kids’ skills are developing as
they grow. They might have one kind of psychic ability now, and a new
ability next year. Once a child begins to open to intuitive abilities
or spiritual knowingness, their abilities continue to open (and open,
and open!) So where they are now may not be where they’re going to end

mom to four kids, and they’re all intuitive and/or spiritually gifted.
However, it took me a while to figure this out! I’m what I term an
"adult emergent" psychic, which means that I wasn’t aware of my own
intuitive abilities until adulthood, when they very suddenly just
"opened." Think of a car going from zero to ninety in six
seconds—that’s pretty much what it felt like: exciting, exhilarating,
confusing, and not particularly comfortable!
wasn’t until after my own abilities became "open" that I was able to
see that my kids had these abilities as well, and as I started looking
around, I realized that so did just about every child I met! This was
fascinating to me, and I began research on Indigo kids and some of the
other categories identified more recently. I soon found that even

an exciting time, and these new kids who are showing up are
phenomenal—born psychics, born spiritually aware, remarkably
well-grounded, and ready to use their abilities for good. It’s not just
a few—it’s the majority of the children of today, especially those who
have the luxury of being born into a country or place with adequate
health and safety. To me, it marks a whole new evolutionary stage or
mark for humanity—and I think we’d all agree, it’s arriving just in
2. It’s been said that all children are
born with inherent psychic awareness, but that we often lose these
skills as we age and as we learn of society’s dismissal of such gifts.
Do you feel that this is the case?
No, I don’t think we lose these skills,
but I do think we can block or repress them. Psychic abilities require
high vibration—it’s a requirement, sort of like a car requires gas or
electricity to power it. Without a high vibration, it’s pretty much
impossible to do psychic or spiritual work. If, as children, we are
nurtured and mentored as our psychic and spiritual abilities open, our
vibration remains high, and our abilities flourish. If we are ridiculed
or antagonized, we shut down.
In addition, the openness that comes from living as an intuitive being
can be emotionally overwhelming. It’s not just about seeing departed
spirits—most kids have an easy time with this. But sometimes, psychic
kids see other situations that they don’t have the depth or maturity to
deal with easily. Sometimes, seeing something too young, without proper
adult mentoring, can cause kids to shut down.
Psychic Child is about psychic kids, it’s very easy to
psychic as an adult. In general, all it takes to open the particular
"window" of psychic and spiritual intelligence again, at any age, is
simply the willingness to open that window. When I work with adult
clients, the first thing we look at is fear from the past. Within one
or two sessions, most clients can immediately open their abilities. As
I explain in the book, once you know what to expect and how things work
in the etheric realms, it’s not particularly difficult to learn how.

Challenges of Being a Witch
by Amber K & Azrael Arynn K
Witches are different, and not just because we celebrate
the Goddess and the Horned God under the full moon. The true Witch
lives in a world apart from mainstream consciousness, thinks and
perceives and feels differently about herself and the universe.
Choosing or creating another way of life is a monumental, never-ending
task. As we seek to understand what lies before us, Amber K and Azrael
Arynn K, authors of the new book How to Become a Witch, identify nine major
challenges facing those who have chosen the path of Witchcraft.
Contact of the Extraterrestrial and
by Philip J. Imbrogno
The number of men and women who claim to have
encountered alien beings is growing, and hundreds (if not thousands)
can be found in just the United States and Canada alone. While many of
these individuals are likely in contact with nothing other than their
own overactive imagination, others may well have had a true encounter
with a being outside our known reality. Philip Imbrogno, author of Ultraterrestrial
Contact, explores the truth to these encounters.

of the twelve signs of the zodiac has the potential to carry us back
into past life memories and patterns. In the course of our lifetime,
each of us will be asked by the universe to understand the basic nature
of each sign. Why? Because each sign can act as a catalyst to stimulate
your past life awakenings so that we in this lifetime can convert
past life negative patterns into winning creative life directions.
