Are children spiritual?
All children, all people are spiritual. The way that this manifests is totally individual. All paths lead to the same place but some are longer and more convoluted than others. To ask if a child is spiritual is like asking if ice is made of water. Nurturing the pure spirit in a child is a very precious job, a privilege. It is all too easy to dismiss their visions and comments as childish fantasy. We would often do better ourselves to adopt a childlike approach to life to gain maximum pleasure and benefits.
If a child is continually being stamped on he will either begin to believe that his ideas are rubbish or fear them and push them away. Later in his life this fear will stop him from fully expressing and exploring his spiritual development.
There is much we can learn from our children or rather than the other way round. Each generation seems to be building their spiritual knowledge on the foundation of the previous one. Not only are they younger when they start enquiring but also the depth of knowledge and understanding is getting deeper all the time
In the present time, when the veil between the dimensions is getting thinner very quickly, the new children are changing and adapting very quickly. Even their DNA has changed to allow them to take advantage of this thinning veil. The scientists label the unused DNA as junk DNA. Nature never made anything unnecessarily! In the coming years the unused DNA will start to activate as the whole of Earth's population prepares to shift frequency.
The change is very rapid, much more so than the normal evolutionary process. Humanity has been waiting for this time. There is no time to gradually adapt, so the dormant DNA has been waiting. That is why we, and especially our children are so privileged to be alive at this time. A unique time for a unique species. So many new spirits are coming into physicality to experience this and our privilege is to watch and learn from our children. Yes they are spiritual, and so are we all.
How Can You Help?
So what can you do to help the process? First is not to ridicule your child and help him to understand. As not all children will have the benefit of this understanding yours may find that he feels odd amongst his peers. To make him feel comfortable and "normal" with his expression of spirituality before he mixes with other children regularly is important. Then when he goes to school the other children will benefit from his strength of conviction.
Very young children will happily play with invisible friends without fear of ridicule from their playmates. It seems to be the formal setting of school that interferes with this. Older children may mock and your child, wanting to fit in, may hide his true feeling and thoughts.
Teachers too unwittingly play their part. A child may draw a picture of mummy and daddy in many colours and surrounded by a rainbow of colours. The teacher, thinking that she is helping to develop the young artist will correct him or question why daddy has a blue face or mummy a yellow head. Children have no reason not to draw what they see, so perhaps they are! It could be that your child is drawing your chakras or the auras around you. Or may be there is some other hue that his finely evolved and untainted senses are aware of and we have forgotten.
It could be that the colours represent his feelings for his parents. All vibrations, sounds, thoughts, emotions are a frequency that can be expressed as colour. At present our senses can only pick up a small range of these colours. Different animals have different ranges and this applies to people. Colour blindness is another variation of how colours can be perceived. Some children have a heightened perception of colour and wish to express it with a very limited range of physical colours available. Instead of dismissing their attempts at expressing the hues and colours around people we ought to be open to their lessons. We could learn much from our children's untainted perceptions.
Another common form of spiritual expression is in so called child’s play and invisible friends. Because children’s vibrations are still high they find it easier to communicate with other realms. They are more aware of the angelic realms and the earth spirits such as fairies. This is even more noticeable in single children who look for companionship.
A child’s Guardian angel is with him for life and is often a constant companion during lone playtime, sickness and the long nights. In fact the nights are an important time to re-establish this contact. Other spirit guides come and go according to stage of development but his Guardian angel is a constant source of companionship.
Dreams become important also. Listen to his dreams. Spiritually he is not a child and there will be much support and learning going on in dreamtime. Your child may be a very heavy sleeper but spiritually very active. Astral travelling is something that we all do at some time but are rarely aware of it. Maybe he is still travelling between realms while his body becomes attuned to the Earth’s vibrational energy or he could be just leaving his body for a while to feel the freedom that he would have been use to in the spirit realm.
My daughter, at 5yrs old told me that she watched me come into the bedroom and tuck her up. I asked her what else she did but at that time she said that she stayed in the same room and did not meet anyone. I realised that she found this quite normal and then I understood why she got so upset when I told her that the doctors would put her to seep to have her broken arm mended. As far as she was concerned she never slept and therefore the doctors would still hurt her. Fortunately she did not need the operation after all.
On another occasion I came home from a very unpleasant committee meeting. As I came into the room she asked me why I had a black cloud over my head? It always amazes me when children come out with comments like these, it is so natural to them. I am not sure what she sensed when I carried out my reflexology treatments. If she was around when I had finished, she would ask for the “first cuddle”. It was not until much later that I realised that she must have been aware of the increased energy that had been created and she wanted part of it.I hindsight, this seems a very natural thing to want to be part of.
There were many opportunities to have squashed her developing senses but I feel fortunate that I did not knowingly put too much of a dampener on her feelings. A child chooses his parents and I hope I have fulfilled my children’s expectations. I was far from perfect but I believe I gave them a good, if somewhat unusual, grounding.
