How To Keep 6 Year Olds Medium Abilities


My niece hears voices. She is only 6 years old so it isn't schizophrenic because that doesn't really show up until people have become adults, but she has always heard voices, some are adults but as she is getting older, the adults don't come through as much but a little boy does. I tell her she is hearing angels. She confirmed that they never say anything bad, just "hi" or her name or "are you having fun?" Little comments like that. The adults scared her because she doesn't know who they are but she likes the little boy and I think this little boy is the same little boy that was sending messages to me when I was 14-21yrs old. That in itself is a whole other story but he was about 12 years old and my niece hears a boy that almost has the same voice as I heard based on her description, which would suggest he is younger than 14.

I want to know how we can help her keep this gift and not lose it as she ages. Should she just keep talking to them and not block them out? Is there a way to get a 6 year old to meditate or are there techniques she can learn to turn the voices off when she wants or make them come through stronger? I don't want her life to get over-run with these spirits once they realize she can hear them, but it is a gift and it will most likely disappear with age.

Does anyone know how I can help her?

This gift, clauridience, is very hard to deal with sometimes, but also a very great and magnificent one. I've had it for a while now, not as long as my empathy nor dreams, but for maybe about 2-3 years or so. And I've always heard my spirit guards, but that, as you said, is another story.:) What helps me the most, is probably the constant reminder that I am not crazy and that the voices will not hurt me. [This one may not always be true, but I was always told that, and it helped me keep calm] The understanding of my parents helps quite a lot too, since now we can search for information TOGETHER, instead of me hiding so much of my life from them. One more thing... Let her spend time outside, with nature surrounding her and teach her that the trees and flowers are alive, and that being by them is healing to her.

-Love and understanding, Val.

I have not really understood how people grow up and lose their gifts. I don't have control of mine but have kept them all my life. I was a day dreamer; perhaps that was my form of meditation while growing up. All I can really say is keep her imagination going so that she stays open to more than just the physical things people normally see.

I think that she should pray to God, after all he has more power to stop the "bad boys" if you/she doesn't really believe in him then just send them up to higher powers. I think that the deceased are most likely in a better place and I don't want to say they don't want to be bothered but I know that once somone one had a husband that passed away and she wanted him to come back. She had a dream that he appeared to her and said " If you knew how happy I was you would not want me to come back." I'm still working out how I feel about spirits. I believe that there are spirit guides but I don't really think they are passed away people. I'm positive there are angels and demons. But either way I thought it would be somthing to think about.

Thank you, this is all very helpful. I have just been following my instincts on this one and so far, I have already been doing what most of you suggested. My niece has plenty of alone time coloring etc. And yesterday, I brought her ability up in front of her siblings. At first they looked at us like we were crazy, but then when my sister (her mom) and I explained to them that they had all heard these type voices when they were younger but they just grew out of it, so it is perfectly normal. We also DID tell my niece not to talk to the angels out loud when people are around because they wouldn't understand.
Oh, one thing I requested of her was that she ask the "little boy" that visits her what his name, I want to see if she gets a response and 2, I am curious to see if it is the same little boy Billy that was in our hallway for all of those years. We'll see, I'll let you know if she get's a response... Oh, also my sister has also told my niece that if any of these voices are mean or rude, say bad things or just scare her, to tell them very sternly "go away and leave me alone", then say a prayer to her deceased family members as backup. We also asked her if she wants the voices to go away and she said no, that she likes hearing them, she likes the little boy.

I'm lead into thinking along the similar lines of the other two posters here.

I have two children aged 5 and 10. I have a ban on play stations, wiis, game boys etc etc, in an attempt to keep their creative minds awake and functioning. Actually we as a family have never even owned any of the above and have no intention of ever giving them house room!
It is in fact a sad truth that manipulation of our childrens mind by these and other similar media dull their senses and natural ability!
We need to nurture our childrens imagination and keep them receptive to their own senses.
Thats all I can suggest at the mo, six is a little too young to begin explaining theories which will wash over their heads.

I am about to start explaining some things to my daughter though, who is now ten! She has always been a social animal, and recently I recognised this as empath abilities. She has collected gems from an early age too, and telepathically I am closer to her than with anyone. One day she will shine, but even she doesn't know it yet!

Keep loving her, that's all she needs for now!

Well I should start by saying that I don't have any children of my own, though this kind of question has come up more than once at some of the message boards that I have been a member of before. The input offered by the other users varied greatly depending on the tone and accepted ethos of the sites in question, but the general consensus was that the best way to help a child to keep such abilities is to allow them to come to turns with them from an early age, and let them know that it is perfectly normal to hear and see the things which they do.

Some schools of thought state that we are all born with said extrasensory perception, and that the loss of our child like imagination and world-view, usually during puberty or otherwise during the early teens, crushes such insights out of us, leaving us with a far more rational take on the world around us. Allowing a child to maintain that youthful viewpoint, to maintain the strength of their imagination, even if it is only with regards to their ability to interact with the spirit world, is most probably the single best way to help her keep those all too easily forgotten gifts.

Plus the sooner said abilities are excepted by those around her, the sooner her closest relations, the ones who spend most of the time with her, can begin to keep an eye on the spiritual visitors that she is receiving, purely for her own safety. If she does not feel that she has to hide any of the information from her family, then she will be far more willing to ask for help should, gods forbid, any of the spirits turn out to be negative in nature.

That's a good question. On one hand, you want them to know it's okay that they hear things that other children may not (and not call them weird or a freak thereby shutting them down) but then also not giving them so much information that their tender age cannot handle. Additionally, they have to be functional in society and so one may suggest they keep their conversations with the 'angels' to family members only for now. If they don't, the first teacher they run into will more than likely undue the work you've done to let them know this isn't a bad thing.

I personally don't have children but wondered how I'd handle this myself. Our society is largely "outward" with how children engage in life. We plug them into tv land, games, and rarely inward. I think what helped me very early on in my youth was that I lived with my great grandmother for awhile and she would often sit me at a chair and table and provide a blank piece of paper and crayon. I could then do whatever I pleased and all came from my creative mind. We also had "alone" time where we just were by ourselves and playing. I think this opened up opportunities to experience and develop qualities few kids have these days.

The goal is to promote an emotionally and mentally happy child so that they attract that in return. Trouble usually comes from a child who has strife in the home. Things were very positive and open for me spiritually until my father married my very unhappy step-mother at the age of seven. Then I had problems keeping out negative forces around me because that is what the household then attracted.

Hope this helps,
