SITUATIONS WITH CHILDREN
I had my own personal childhood experiences and dealt with situations with of other children. Most of them heard strange noises in the home, had vivid and/or prophetic dreams, and sensed spirits (not knowing it).
One saw auras, then it stopped, eventually she became a hearing & writing medium in the late teens; another saw spirits as completely materialized people (not being able to tell the difference) always asking what strange people were doing in the house; another involved a child of 2 who woke up at night and nap times in a definite trance-like state, with non-stop screaming. After having a spirit session, this child’s mediumship was closed by spirit guides, and in their early 20’s eventually became a hearing & writing medium. Only time will tell if dynamic mediumship will develop. Early problems of a spiritual nature can mostly be alleviated by commonsense, not alarming the child and sincere prayer to the child’s spirit guides and God, with guidance from Kardec’s The Mediums Book.
