Let me start off by saying, both her daughters are incredibly intuitive. My friend supports them every way she can which recently included bringing them to a gallery session to observe me and two other mediums. During the session the girls were very well behaved, but as typical elementary school aged kids do, about half-way through they begin to squirm in their chairs. I recall seeing this and in an effort to engage them decided to pass them a message. After passing a message it is forgotten, but apparently it was their uncle. The younger of the two was very pleased as it validated what she has been seeing and talking to her parents about. My friend reported that her daughter smiled from ear to ear for days telling her father and family any time they’d listen that Uncle B really was around!
When we spoke this weekend, my friend expressed her gratitude, for she feels she doesn't see. And just before she left she said to me, “It is so important for intuitive kids to know ‘It’s OK… I see what you see.’ That is a gift you have.”
It’s a gift that went used again this past week when a father brought his ten year old daughter to check out the Branches of Light Open House. He’s an empath who has been coming to classes to develop his own intuition but when his daughter came to him discussing her “visions”, he wasn’t quite sure how to answer her questions. But, he thought the medium he’d been developing with might. That’s why he brought her.
He came early, and spoke with the other medium for some time. She was able to share her thoughts, but she admitted that she hasn’t worked with kids other than her own daughter and thought he should talk to someone else… and he was in luck because that person was at Branches… ME! She introduced us and then the three of us spoke for a good half hour. I gave lots of tips, but what was most profound to the little girl was the fact that I was able to describe the spirits she was seeing. It was okay, I saw what she saw. As, an aside… it also helped dad because he's pretty sure the spirits she’s seeing are his grandparents!
I was able to tell these kids, it is OK. It is nothing to be afraid of. I see what you see…. that reassurance is so important. And not just to kids.
This afternoon I met with a gentleman who sees auras vividly. For YEARS he believed the haze he saw around people and plants was a result of wonky contacts or perhaps a touch of glaucoma. That was until a friend’s daughter informed him, “No… you see auras.”
Since that revelation, he’s honed his ability. But books have only gotten him so far and he has a desire to understand this energy more. This desire led him to ask if he could watch while I do a reading. Intrigued and curious, I answered OF COURSE!! I even had the perfect guinea pig in mind – a mutual friend who loves getting readings.
So we tracked her down and played. It was a really cool experience. I was able to validate and explain what he was seeing while I was doing the reading (he saw three spirits come in and a direct connection between me and the sitter). AND, he was able to validate that what I feel and hope to accomplish during a reading really was happening! It was SO COOL!
These interactions proved to me there really is something to, it’s ok I see what you see. Perhaps because we all want to know we aren’t crazy… or if we are, at least we have company.
