All of us are born psychic. We just tend to lose our psychic abilities as we grow if we are not taught how to properly deal with our psychic abilities.

Actually, all children are born psychic. Example, we often hear about children playing and talking with their imaginary friends. Parents usually just shrug this off, thinking it’s normal for children to imagine they are playing with unseen friends.

The truth is, children really are seeing and playing with their invisible friends. Children often see angels, spirit guides, fairies, elves, and even their deceased loved ones.

Today, we are going to learn about the common signs of psychic children and how adults should help their children deal with and preserve their natural psychic ability.

Why Babies Often Smile While Looking In The Air


It’s entertaining to hear a baby cooing and making cute little sounds. And it’s not uncommon to see babies looking amused and smiling at something others cannot see.

The reason is that babies can actually see angels and spirit guides because they are still energetically open to the vibrations around them. They are innocent, and unlike adults, babies do not doubt, question, or deny, what they see. They have not yet been conditioned to ignore their intuition, be logical, and believe only what can be proven.

They are not afraid of seeing angels because babies understand that angels are loving and kind. Adults have been tainted by the society, believing that invisible beings are something to be afraid, often due to what they have seen in movies.

Children And Their “Imaginary” Friends


Children often have the ability to see beyond the physical reality, particularly during infancy.

Young children love to play pretend games, and interact with stuffed animals or dolls, as if they were alive. Most children have imaginary play friends, especially when there is no one around to physically play with. So imaginary friends are a common part of childhood development. In recent studies, kids with imaginary friends have been found to be more articulate, have improved creativity, and higher self-esteem.

Children especially babies can actually see their Guardian Angel or Spirit Guides.

Children often communicate with their imaginary friends, playing with them and calling them when their real playmates or friends are not available to play with. When children are upset, or feel hurt by what someone has said to them, they call on to their imaginary friends.

These imaginary friends they are seeing and talking to are often their Guardian Angel or Spirit Guide. They are often not just make-believe, but instead, very real beings that your child is seeing with his or her psychic senses.

Unfortunately, many parents think their children just have an overly creative imagination, dismissing the idea that their child is actually seeing something real. It is for this reason that children stop believing what they see, because they are told that what they see is not real. Children then start to shut off their psychic powers, and because of this, they eventually lose it as they grow into adults.

Our psychic powers are like tools, they become duller and duller when they are not used for their intended purposes. The same way, when adults tell children that their imaginary friends are not real, children will stop using their psychic senses, and soon become lost.

Common Traits of Children with Psychic Abilities


Here are some of the common traits of kids with psychic abilities.

  1. Sensitive to the Energy of Others

Psychic children are very sensitive to the energy of other people. They can easily feel other people’s emotions. If you are upset, having a rough day, or feeling ill, they will feel it too,

  1. Sensitive to Their Surroundings

Because they feel energy so deeply, they are super sensitive to the environment. They feel affected by crowded or noisy places, and loud noises can easily overwhelm them. They can also feel the energy of places they visit, sometimes saying the place feels “creepy”.

  1. They Have Great Instincts About People and Situations

It’s difficult to lie to a child with psychic abilities, because they will know if you are lying or really telling the truth.

  1. They Talk About Imaginary friends, or Loved Ones They Never Met

They can hear the voices of their imaginary friends, and are often able to tell you details about them. These details are usually consistent such as their friend’s name, gender, clothes, or things they like/dislike.

Intuitive kids may also be able to tell you things about loved ones who have passed away, telling you things they had no way of knowing about them. They are able to know things about them because they are able to communicate with them.

  1. They May Recall a Past Life or Say Things Like, “I Remember When…”

They may talk to you about their past life memories. They will give you facts and information that they have not learned yet in this life. An example is when you visit a new place and your child recognizes landmarks he or she should not know nothing about

  1. They Have a Special Love of Animals

Psychic children love animals. They are drawn to our furry friends, and are nature lovers as well.

  1. They Prefer Being Home Over Going to School

As children with psychic abilities are highly sensitive to the people around them and their surroundings, they prefer to be alone and be at home. 

  1. They Can Have Sleep Issues

They often have vivid dreams, nightmares, or trouble sleeping. It is possible that they may be astral traveling or revisiting their past lives. They are often able to tell you clear details about their dreams.

  1. They are Creative

 They are imaginative, creative, and right brain thinkers, since intuitive function is a right brained function.

How To Preserve Your Child’s Natural Psychic Abilities

As adults, we should never hinder the development of psychic abilities of our children. Instead we should provide guidance and support to help them preserve and develop their abilities.

It is not easy to deal with children with psychic abilities. In the same way, it is not easy for children to have this kind of natural psychic ability. They will need a lot of patience, understanding, and support, from their parents and other adults. You should encourage them to develop their psychic abilities, without compromising their emotional and social growth.


Encourage them to tell you what they see and repeat conversations they hear.  Listen carefully to what they are saying.

You may also document their experiences by keeping notes about what your child tells you. You can also encourage older children to write their stories, or draw pictures of what they see.

 Never ever tell them that what they see or hear is not real!  

Don’t brush off their feelings as “nothing” or merely “coincidence”. Honor what your child feels about the situation.

It’s also important that you explain to the child that not everyone can understand his experiences, letting him or her know he cannot talk with everyone about them. You need to teach him or her how to function on both levels of reality.

It would also be helpful to get educated.

You may contact a psychic who can help you guide your child in the development of their psychic abilities, as well as maintaining a balance with their physical life.


Be calm, and let the things unfold at their own pace. To have a child with psychic abilities is such a blessing. Be thankful for it!

    I have a daughter who is gifted, which I didn’t not find out about this until about 5 years ago. I remember as a little girl she would play so well by herself, little did I know she was playing with 2 “friends” that visited her frequently. Whenever she brings out her barbies, they are back playing with her; I love to hear the stories. Then there is the time that we all got to experience her new friend Eric, who lost his mother (long story). He would come and draw with my daughter and watch over my grandson. I had a friend who reunited Eric with his mother and grandmother and he was so happy when he came to say good-bye. He was hesitant in leaving, but I’m glad he is finally with his family now. Then there is my son who is also gifted, he doesn’t always have such good experiences, it must be the karma coming back on him from what I have been told of his past life. I was told they will not lose their gift as adults, but I pray that they will be able to take care of it and understand it so that they can live fulfilling lives and not be torn up by their natural abilities. This experience has opened my eyes, even though it is something that I had known deep down. I have had some interesting experiences with my two children.
