It’s no secret that in this household, mama has quite the unconventional job! Like myself, my two young boys—ages 12 and 10—are both highly sensitive beings. However, they have yet to fully embrace their spirituality among their peers, which is totally normal.
Growing up as a psychic medium, I just needed someone to talk to in order to feel seen and understood. Whenever I built up the courage to voice my experiences seeing and hearing spirits—which was very hard to do, since being different comes with shame—the worst response I’d receive was, “Don't worry… it’s just the wind.”
I remember one of my creepiest encounters with a spirit was when I was around 7 or 8-years-old, when I slept over at a friend's house. When she turned off the lights, I heard someone breathing next to me, right above my head. My friend slept on the other side of the room, so it was obvious to me that a ghost was present. I woke her up several times during the night, to which she replied, “It was probably just the wind.”
I felt stupid and alone. Why would the wind continuously make so many different noises, like breathing sounds, walking sounds, talking sounds, and so on? I’m very familiar with the difference between Mama Earth and its environment, and ghosts. Not only by the sounds, but the freaking chills and the change in the energies around me! But not having people to believe me made it feel like my reality didn't matter, which felt very isolating and scary.
So, I made it my mission to always show my kids compassion and understanding. I want them to have great confidence and embrace their experiences in the spiritual realm. And guess what? There ARE ghosts. There ARE spirits. As far as I’m concerned, there are even aliens. As parents, it isn’t our place to discount anyone’s experiences. Even though we don’t have all the answers, it’s important to acknowledge what our children are feeling. This will ultimately help them build trust in themselves, and validate that what they feel and see is real!
Today is Mother’s Day, so I thought I’d share some of the things I learned about communicating with my children about spirituality. Maybe, you’ll find some to be supportive for your own journey interacting with kids, whether they’re your own or not. It’s miraculous how much of a difference you can make in a child’s life if they have even one person believing them!
