It’s been my experience that ALL children have psychic abilities until about 3 or 4 years of age. We come in with it. As a child we don’t realize it’s unusual to have it, so we just “go with it”, without raising much fuss. Granted, some kids come in with more of it than others. Still, most have a marked degree of ability until they are told such things don’t exist. Personally, I find this extremely cool and something worth nurturing… but I would (ha). Calleen
Could your child have psychic abilities?
Have they seen things that simply can’t be explained?
Those were a few of the questions that Spiritual Niagara and Psychic Kids United tried to answer Saturday during an information session for parents and children at the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls.
“We want to let children know what it’s like to have these different abilities, and they’re all varying, and what to do with them and how to use them to thrive,” said Amanda Dubois, a psychic medium and member of Spiritual Niagara.
The goal of the event was to give children an opportunity to explore and develop their intuitive gifts and to educate parents.
Dubois and a team of facilitators worked with parents and children to explain the traits of empaths, mediums, psychics and healers and how children can manage their abilities.
According to Psychic Kids United, a medium is someone who senses or can connect with spirit energy while an empath is someone who is sensitive to circumstances, events and conversations.
A healer is an individual who wants to help others to feel better, be it emotionally, mentally, physically or spiritually and a psychic knows things that are not obvious to everyone else.
Welland resident Kelly Serniak brought along her children Julia, 9, and seven-year-old Jacob.
“The focus here is kids but it really applies to anyone,” Serniak said.
“I think it’s important for them to be tapped in to every level of who they are because it really dictates how we see the world and how we work through the world,” she said.
Dubois and other speakers encouraged participants not to be afraid of the unknown.
“In TV and movies, it’s sensationalized, it’s not real life,” she explained.
“Embrace your abilities because, yes, you can help others, but first and foremost they will help you.”
Additional information sessions are planned for next year, likely in March or May.
Spiritual Niagara began in June 2009 and provide links to spiritual services across the region. Those services including meditation classes, yoga, Reiki, massage, psychics, tarot, holistic health, hypnosis and energy healers.
