Nurturing Precognizant, Clairaudient, and Clairsentient Abilities in Children

The terminology may be different but the results are the same: healing, foreknowledge, mind reading, or discerning activity in the spirit realm. According to the Bible, Jesus demonstrated all these gifts during his earthly ministry. The phenomena some people call psychic abilities are referred to by Pentacostal Christians as the gifts of the Spirit (I Corinthians 12: 4-8). These gifts operate similarly and all come from Spirit.

Children don’t have such preconceived biases toward pleasing religious leaders or adhering to doctrine. They simply report what they experience. Here is the story of a Christian woman who obviously has precognizant, clairsentient, and clairaudient abilities.

When Iris was thirteen, her dad planned a fishing trip with the family. As much as she loved fishing, that sunny July morning was quite upsetting for her. She had not slept well the previous night and when she awoke she felt uncomfortable, nauseated, and like there was a magnetic force repelling her from going on the trip.

As the rest of the family happily approached the van, Iris begged her dad to please reschedule the trip. She told him that she felt sick and scared and that they shouldn't go. Confused by her behavior, he commanded her to get in the van.

When they arrived at the lake spread out along the banks with no more than twelve feet between them—that was the family fishing rule. Inwardly, Iris was still freaking out and disturbed but she kept quiet as she took her fishing pole and sat on a rock.

Two minutes later her little sister came to sit next to her and asked, “What’s wrong? Why didn't you want to come on the trip?”

Suddenly, Iris heard a distant, shattered voice yelling, "Help me!"

"Shhhh!” Iris said to her sister. “Listen. Did you hear that?"

Her sister didn't hear zip and looked at Iris like she was crazy.

As she kept hearing the same words, Iris noticed the voice was coming from the other side of the lake. The voice sounded like a flute, not like a human voice. Then she realized it was coming out of the water. Iris ran to her dad and told him that she heard voices from the other side of the lake.

“There is no one at the other side of the lake. It’s closed to the public. Go take a nap. You’re in my fishing spot.”

At this point Iris thought she was going crazy! But she went back to her spot and started drawing. A half hour later, she heard her family members crying and yelling, "We lost him!"

Danny, her 16-year-old cousin, decided to sneak off to catch the larger fish where the boats go. Danny had won awards for being the best swimmer and fisher, yet he drowned that day.

Iris’ dad warned her to never tell these stories to anyone because it might lead them astray from the Christian faith. Now that her dad is gone she feels free to tell her stories—and there are many.

Iris has precognizant, clairaudient, and clairsentient gifts at work in her life. The precognizant magnetic pull she felt was for the purpose of getting her attention in order to have her dad cancel the trip. Hearing the voice crying for help is a clairaudient gift. The feeling of nausea is a clairsentient ability. Many empathic healers use this gift to ascertain where in the body their patients need a healing flow of energy directed.

These gifts are just as common and useful as gifts of music, art, teaching, or other talents human possess, but it’s not typical for families to discuss paranormal experiences that do not align with their doctrine or are frowned upon by the church. It’s probably not a good idea to go to church on Sunday and admit that you see ghosts. However, had Iris’ dad listened to her that day, Danny might still be alive.

We do our intuitive children a great injustice when we invalidate their psychic abilities. But, many parents simply don't know what to do with kids who see or hear spirits or predict future events. In some cases, the "hushing" parent also has some paranormal gifts in operation that he or she is not comfortable talking about—maybe they were "hushed" by their parents and are simply passing down the advice they were given.

  1. The spiritual world is more real than the temporal world. The spiritual world is eternal. It isn't difficult to accept spiritual activity or to be able to discern it. The problem is with the New Age movement that blurred the boundaries between God's spirituality and using the spiritual for one's own purposes.
