Should I Allow a Ghost to Stay Around My Child?

Recently I had a mom concerned about her 2-year-old son who began reporting that he was seeing a ghost at home. Then, he started saying the ghost was following them to public places. The child was terrified of the ghost. To me, this suggests that the entity is an earthbound spirit and not a spirit guide.

A young child with limited vocabulary typically doesn't make up stories like this. First of all, he has no reason to lie about what he sees or pretend to be afraid of a ghost—a term he probably has not heard in his daily experience. Should a parent be concerned about this? I would say yes—not because there is something to be afraid of, but because as a parent you want to know who is hanging around your child (regardless of whether they have a physical body or not) and what that ghost’s intentions are.


Dr. Caron Goode wrote a book, Kids Who See Ghosts. In it, she suggests that parents find out what purpose the ghost serves in your child’s life. If a spirit is an elder (ancestor) who is serving as a spirit guide, children are usually not afraid of them. If is it an earthbound spirit (most likely in cases when a child is terrified of the entity). Dr. Goode would ask questions such as these:

1. Do you as a parent want this spirit interacting or watching your son? Why or why not?
2. Does your son want the ghost around him? Why or why not?

As a parent (or anyone in a human body), you—not the ghost—have the ultimate authority in a situation like this. Just as if someone were trespassing on your property, you have every right to say whether or not this ghost can watch and follow your child around. I would advise you to do a compassionate release to permanently remove the spirit and help it cross over.

Dr. Goode and I, along with ghost clearing expert Ranoli, recorded a 60-minute audio on clearing your space of entities. In this discussion, Caron talks about why children see ghosts, and I share a few ghost stories and how my psychic grandson interacted with the spirit world when he was very young.

Regardless of whether or not you get the MP3, I hope you will take action to keep this and other entities from attaching to your child's auric field.

Handle Empathic Children With Love in Emotionally Toxic Homes

By Caron Goode

Is your home emotionally toxic? That is…do you order your kids around, hit them, scream at them, forget to touch them with love, forget to be kind, ignore them when they cry or need you? Among the emotional factors that contribute to negative, even toxic, emotional atmospheres in homes are

  • Surprise or intense outbursts from anger or control issues.
  • Verbal putdowns or psychological bullying,
  • Physical abuse, including spanking, inappropriate sexual touching, and harassment.
  • Substance abuse and its vampire-like energy drain
  • Resentment, lack of respect and inappropriate behavior derived from bullying tactics like pushing, hitting, punching and knuckling the head.

Any child will buckle under when subjected to such behaviors, and for empathic or emotional intuitives who feel more profoundly than the average child, such behaviors can cripple or devastate. The potential for emotional harm inflicted on sensitive children has far larger ramifications than for other temperament styles.

Take extra care with empathic children for health, immune system strength, and the ability to develop resilience. They must build to be able to stand up for themselves or know when to withdraw. All children need a champion, and empathic children need an especially caring one.

Kellie had two younger brothers, and all three children were close growing up in a single parent household. All three children remember a household of humor, movies and popcorn, long walks and stories at bedtime during their preschool years. Kellie’s mother, Leslie, remarried when Kellie was nine years old, and her brothers were eight and seven. The tenor of their household changed from happy to distressful. Their stepfather argued with Leslie, worked at night and slept during the days, and children felt like they walked on eggshells.

One morning before school, Kellie’s brothers wrestled and broke an item in their living room. No one confessed to the crime, so Leslie put all three children in the bathroom, closed the door, and told them if one of them didn’t confess, she would have their father spank all three of them.

Well, no one confessed, but empathic Kellie was a nervous wreck after waiting in the bathroom for two hours for her stepfather to come home. Her bladder was full, and when her stepfather walked through the bathroom door with a belt in his hand, she broke down and sobbed. He made each child pull down their pants, lean over his lap, and he spanked them with the belt. Kellie urinated all over him, sobbed, and was in shock.

She turned white and fell to the floor at being assaulted. When she curled into a fetal position, her brothers ran to Leslie to report that something was wrong. Kellie was put to bed where she ran a fever for three days and vomited as if she had the flu. As an adult, Kellie described her impression as seeing the evil in her stepfather and feeling vulnerable when spanked, “I felt like I swallowed his violence, absorbed it like a sponge, so intensely that I fell ill. I had to purge my body through vomiting.” I had nightmares well into my teen years of being assaulted again. From that day forward, I hated that man and my mother for the way she dealt with a child’s simple mistake.”

Please remember, handle empathic children with care, respect and kindness.

Many parents, grandparents, and teachers are guardians of intuitive children. Since many of these adults did not have a spiritually-advanced role model when they were children, they are perplexed when trying to deal with the children of today, who openly exhibit spiritual gifts.

Advice for Time Management

Is keeping an intuitive child on a schedule necessary?  They tend to operate from a place of “no time.” If time is an illusion, how do we make the most of it? 
Many times the sensitive intuitive children who feel their way become very absorbed in their tasks, studies or artistic expression.  They are not strong attenders of time.  Sometimes in the feeling world of emotion the aspect of time is not anchored.  I answer a lot of that in the book, Raising Intuitive Children, which talks about this specific learning style- energy aware children.  For my own step son who had that issue, we had alarm clocks, yellow sticky notes that we put in his room.  We actually managed the environment to get him where he needed to go with a lot of time prompts including a little kitchen timer when he needed to be on a call for example or get out the door to a school function on time.  So to me, you have to build that in with these children if they are not time savvy.

Educate Caregivers Regarding Your Empathic Child

Dr. Caron Goode talks about how to support empathic children. She suggests that parents be proactive and not wait for a situation to arise. Explain to teachers, babysitters, grandparents, and caregivers up front that your child has some unique qualities or energetic sensitivity that may be displayed while under their care. Depending upon the age of the child, I can be helpful to either 1.) Empower the child to take responsibility for some situations, or 2.) Educate the caregivers about what is going on with the child spiritually and energetically.
With a younger the child, the caregiver or babysitter has to be told what to expect. Such as in the case with kids who see ghosts.  There was a young native American child raised by his father and his grandmothers. When the child went to school, the father went to school to let the teacher know that if she had any questions about his behavior she should call the father directly.  You see, the boy has been raised by his grandmothers, but oh by the way his grandmothers have passed over. From an early age the boy was trained to speak to his spirit walker grandmothers.  They were with him; they raised him; they taught him how to do spiritual healing because he’s very much a young shaman in training.  The father went to the school and explained specifically that the boy will go up and put his hand on other children’s hearts to soothe them when they are hurt or cry.  One day the teacher came in after a car accident and the boy went up to her and touched her heart.  Because she had been told in advance, she knew what he was doing and she was very accepting of it.
It takes pro-action. We’ve got to help these kids get through. We’ve got to educate so other people can understand and accept them.  Be a champion communicator, get out there and help!

Why Are Autistic Children Non-Verbal Until Later in Life?

Then a lot of times children who have been nonverbal may all of a sudden find their voice, or they may find the ability to communicate through some kind of augmentative communication device but all of a sudden their own thoughts are flowing.  Riley, the first boy who communicated with me telepathically, once said, “Do you find it interesting that most of us don’t talk until we’re after the age of five, seven, sometimes not until nine?”
And I said, “Yes.”
He said, “We operate on a collective consciousness level. We have chosen it as part of our gift to humanity. We are breaking the pattern.” He was referring to the pattern Dr. Caron Goode talked about in her presentation in which the first seven to eight years of life where the child is being imprinted through the left hemisphere of the brain.
Until about seven or eight autistic children are not interested in the labels we give to things or how things should go together. They are functioning primarily in the right brain and are not privy to that type of imprinting.  We have a population of parents who have been told all kinds of just horrific things about autism. They are told it occurs because of their genes or because of their parenting styles. What I understand is that autism is very much based on individuals who are attempting to embody from a realm of very high frequency.  They are showing up in the area of spirit and working their way into their physical bodies and their requirement for working their way into the physical bodies is that the body and the mind be in alignment with who they are.  When that’s in place these individuals have a tendency to drop into their physical bodies with greater ease.  That’s not always the case, but nine times out of ten it does take place.

Exercises for Enhancing Empathic Skills in Children

Today we continue with a few key points from a presentation given by Dr. Caron Goode during a previous telesummit to train empaths. If you have a question you would like to ask her, please leave it as a comment below the article.
In Raising Intuitive Children, Dr. Caron Goode speaks about ways to practice psychic abilities.  When her daughter was young, Caron found opportunities to do intuitive exercises with her daughter.  They used to be people watchers in the mall.
Her daughter would say to her, “Boy, that person’s sad.”
And Caron would say, “What’s your sense about this?  Is your heart all the way over there in her space?  Are you feeling her sadness?  Do you need to pull your heart back?” 
Her daughter would say, “I have to pull my heart back because I’m in her heart.” 
Caron still uses this approach to train teenagers. She would take them into nature—a dolphin tour for example.  When the dolphins came up boats would rush over to see them. Some of the empathic teens with would cry because they were aware that the ship’s loud motors were scaring the dolphins.  So they got to understand nature by experiencing this through their empathy.  And in turn, she taught these kids to help the dolphins by directing energy in a positive way and enhance it through focus and building resilience. They learned to do this for themselves as well. They can enhance positive energy by placing their hand on their heart, and asking, “Is this healthy for me to feel this?  Is there something I need to do about it?” This teaches them to make heartfelt choices for their body. 
Much peace can be gained by learning how to integrate everything we take in. We can do this by not overwhelming ourselves with food, addictions, thoughts, sensory stimuli and the like. The key to metabolism is balance.
Caron’s first approach is so simple, like conscious breathing, that people forget that they can do it any time and any place. Place your right hand on your heart center and place your consciousness there. If you have difficulty, take an elevator from your head down to your heart. Breathe and relax. Ten seconds and you’re done. The more intense or stressful the feeling, the longer the focus on the heart center, the balance point between upper and lower energy centers and also the regulator of the systems in the human body. The heart center regulates the body’s rhythms and makes this method very easy and effective.
From your heart and down the right arm extend specific energy pathways so that your right hand has more energy-giving points then the left hand. So the right hand goes on your heart, your child’s heart, or you can teach older children to center in this way. Caron’s counseling and coaching with those dealing with the emotional management through a Heartwise© method, and this is step one. You may contact Dr. Goode at http://live-spirit.com/contact-us/.  
To help ground and transmute energy nature is the healing balm for human ailments. Why? Because of the common electromagnetic field. Put your feet on the earth and get grounded. Caron and her husband collect rocks and crystals. Quite by accident, a child in counseling sat on a rose quartz piece on the floor of my office. After several minutes, he said, “I feel better. All my fears went into the rock.” I used the technique with other children, and then started connecting and working with trees, from hugging to climbing to placing your back against the tree trunk until you can feel the sap. This is an empath adapting to the environment.
In the telesummit, Caron shared ways to accept, integrate, and transmute energy from the viewpoint of the classical or eastern medical philosophies. These touched on the following.
1.      Body and Mind and Energy
2.      Etheric Energy
3.      Mental Energy
4.      Emotion vs. Etheric Energy
5.      Body & Mind Connection
6.      Specific organs govern different mental and emotional processes

Earth Changes Affecting Empathic Children

The changes the Earth is going through are affecting empaths more than others. A few months ago Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas had a notable 2.4 earthquake.  Within 24 hours Dr. Caron Goode was in bed nauseated. She had to ask her husband Tom to realign the electromagnetic frequency of their home using rocks and crystals.  Caron notes that as she is working with children, she is seeing more acting out. Not aggression, seeming scattered, or unfocused thinking. Rather, she is noticing children who are able to see more into the other realms.  More and more children are seeing spirits and spirit walkers.  So the veil is definitely thinning. 
She is also seeing young adults really ready to take on their mission, really ready to change their life, such as young adults wanting to go to Afghanistan, or making movies for environmental peace.  There’s a huge upswing of chaos and clarity on both ends of the spectrum. 
In January, Yvonne Perry, Dr. Caron Goode, and Suzy Miller, will be sponsoring an entire telesummit on raising energy-aware empathic and sensitive children.  Caron’s book, Raising Intuitive Children, has chapters on the empathic child.  On livespirit.com a program called “Raising Intuitive Children” discusses the empathic child, gives emotional support, and teaches soothing a child to adapt to the environment. Caron also offers one-on-one personal coaching or training. You may contact Dr. Goode at http://live-spirit.com/contact-us/.  
There are two events in the coming months that might interest the adult caregivers of empathic children.  One of them is the telesummit in November, which is for integrating whole heart consciousness. It helps move children and adults out of the fear belt into that space of unity; thereby helping empathic children feel calmer.  Also starting in January of next year, we’ll be offering coaching certifications for people who want to do intuitive coaching.  You can be certified and start a successful home-based business in this field.  If that calls to anyone who wants to become an intuitive coach for parents that want to be intuitive in their parenting, you may contact Dr. Goode at http://live-spirit.com/contact-us/

How to Connect Telepathically with Autistic Children

Suzy Miller is the author of AWESOMISM!  A New Way to Understand the Diagnosis of Autism. She offers these suggestions for connecting with children who have autism.
There are things we can do to connect telepathically and get crystal clear information from non-verbal children with autism.  This is their experience on Earth and you must be at a place of acceptance so you can simply watch and accept that how they do what they do.  Next, have a certain level of curiosity.  Just like if you were with somebody from a different country who didn’t understand our customs.  We wouldn’t try to make them be like us. We would explain how we do what we do here, and we would be interested in what they do and how they do it in the country they are from. You might think to yourself, “I notice that he makes a funny noise, or I notice that he looks up in the corner of the room and says the same thing over and over again.”  This kind of curiosity is non-judgmental and creates an energy that will allow the child to feel safe in opening up to you. No one opens up with another person if it feels like there is an antagonistic response.
Next, sit in the room with the child and observe. You can ask this question with your eyes open or closed, “Is there something you want me to know?” Typically, you will get a thought, or an image, or a sensation.  Describe it aloud.  “Hmmmm, I feel like you want me to know about being outside. What would you like me to know about being outside?”
Don’t assume that you know the answer.  More often than not what they are trying to say or express is so much more than what your perceptual reality will allow.  When we move into assumption as to what the child is trying to share, he or she may say, “Stop, look again,” or “Watch” because that’s not what they are trying to tell you. 
If you do these simple things, you will automatically create a connection from a place of integrity with this population based on honoring who they are and how they function.

The Mirroring Principle

According to Suzy Miller, all autistic children have the ability to communicate telepathically and most parents will attest to the fact that their children are wonderful mirrors for them.  A really good example is of a certified practitioner. She’s a very A-type personality: great at organizing, getting things done, and she always has a list in front of her. Sometimes that list takes over. 
For days, her son who is verbal but autistic would come in and walk around saying, “Where’s my list? Where’s my list? Where’s my list? I can’t find my list. I need my list.” 
Her initial thought was “It’s irritating to have somebody repeating something like that.”  All of a sudden the light bulb in her consciousness went off and she said, “Oh my goodness, that’s not his list, that’s my list. The minute she actually got that in her awareness this young man walked into her bedroom, put his list down on the bed and said, “All done!” and walked out.  That’s the speed at which the mirroring principle works.

Autism, Thought Forms, and a Higher Reality

Suzy Miller is the author of AWESOMISM!:  A New Way to Understand the Diagnosis of Autism. This post is based on her presentation given during “Empaths Shifting into 2012: A Telesummit to Help Energy-Sensitive People Understand Their Spiritual Role on Earth” during which Suzy presented “Autism: A Positive Step in Human Evolution” from which this article has been excerpted.
Suzy Miller started her relationship with the autistic population in 1999 with a boy who communicated telepathically with her. In the initial days of working with this individual, she found out very quickly that she was telepathic—she was hearing full sentences and coherent words through which she was getting clear images.  To satisfy her left brain’s desire and speech pathology background, she needed to substantiate what she was hearing in order to put it into practice and create a practical shift in awareness.  She needed to validate this information so she could move it forward. 
These children experience the world much differently than most.  Many people brought up in a western culture assume that if you can’t see it, touch it, or feel it, it must not be real. We also have a tendency to believe that if one cannot verbally communicate he or she may not be cognitively on par with those who can verbally communicate. And these children wanted to de-bunk much of that.  These individuals are not fully embodied into their physicality.  They are not fully grounded into their physical bodies; therefore, their vantage point is not in the physical environment.  Their vantage point is also not necessarily in the left brain’s mental process.  Their vantage point is in what I would consider higher realms, the spiritual or unseen realms, and they are quite articulate and functional in those realms.  They communicate consistently with things that you and I can’t see.  They communicate and use various languages in ways that we would not necessarily consider a language.  They are very focused in their intent to remain in that spirit world.
Suzy tells her story:
One of the first things that my young friend Riley said to me back in ’99 was, “We live in two worlds.  Your world and the real world.” I assumed at that time that this 3D reality that I could perceive with my mind, see, touch, and feel was the real world. He heard my thoughts and laughed and said, “No, my world is the real world. My world is the world of energy.” 
Today we know that everything is energy, but Riley’s focal point allowed him to see from a much broader vantage point than I did then.  These children hang out in that area of fast vibrational frequency in a broad perception of reality that can include ghosts, angels, archangels, and other dimensional beings that their interacting with on a consistent basis.  On a little denser level, they can understand the thoughts and feelings in this 3-D environment.
Many of these children have difficulty being in their bodies well enough to process information in our physical environment.  But they are very well versed at feeling or sensing their way through life.  We have a thought and we think it disappears when we’re done thinking it. However, for this population—and quite frankly for all of us—it is far from the truth. Some of us aren’t as tuned in to thought forms as children diagnosed with autism are. 
Join us tomorrow on this blog for another segment of Suzy Miller’s discussion on how to communicate with autistic children.

A Mystical Encounter with an Autistic Child

Suzy Miller developed The AWESOMISM Certification Process to assist other professionals, parents and caregivers in seeing beyond the limits of themselves and their children. In the telesummit, Empaths Shifting into 2012, Suzy presented “Autism: A Positive Step in Human Evolution” from which this article has been excerpted.
Autism as far as the western medical model is considered or concerned is a spectrum of neural psychiatric disorders characterized by deficits in social interaction and communication, unusual repetitive behaviors. Some, but not all, of these individuals are also nonverbal.  From this, a Western mindset hears the word “disorder.” After having spent a lot of time with these children Suzy sees a profound difference in them, but it is not a disorder; it is a wakeup call to humanity!
When the medical model looks at a disorder they pick up on the fact that a lot of these children have physical difficulties.  They have difficulty with digestion and left brain thought processes.  They have difficulties learning and understanding academics.  So, from that vantage point, you can understand why disorder might show up frequently in the diagnosis. Humans tend to avoid or criticize what they do not understand or whatever varies from the norm. Autism is such an occurrence. These children are spiritual beings with a message for us. We just haven’t learned how to hear them.
Suzy’s vantage point on autism is considerably different than that of the majority of people. It is based on information she received telepathically through these children.  If we look at autism from a broader vantage point, you will see brilliance of this difference.  In the presence of these children, we are experiencing something that is so unusual to our consciousness that it is very difficult for most individuals to not view this population as disordered.
Suzy says, “Quite frankly, from my eyes as a former speech pathologist when I was first beginning to work with some of these children back in 1999 I’d have to say that would be my vantage point as well. But once you have new experiences you can never go back to the old understanding.”
What we are seeing in these individuals is something we have never seen before.  Our left brains don’t know what to do with the awareness of autism in our presence.  We don’t know what to make of the behaviors.  We don’t know what to think of the sounds and the noises they make.  We don’t know what to make of the nonverbal communication or the communication that doesn’t seem directed to anything in the physical environment.  And because we don’t know what to do with that, of course we have a tendency to call them disordered. 
I’ll let Suzy speak in her own words.
In 1999, I had an encounter with a young boy named Riley who was diagnosed with autism.  I was a speech language pathologist in a private practice and this individual whom I was seeing in a daycare center walked up to me.
He was pacing back and forth saying, “It’s the millennium, 1999!”
My eyes were aligned with a medical vantage point at the time and I thought to myself, “This is an interesting little kid.  Something is going on here, something’s wrong here.   He doesn’t look like everybody else.”
While I was still in thought, this young man walked up to me and looked me right in the eyes and said, “Master.”
The moment he said the word master, my physiology changed.  My body knew that this child had seen something within me that I did not know existed.  Why was this child able to see a level of mastership in my consciousness that I was not even aware of myself?
As we were having that exchange, I could feel his presence tapping into my energy.  I took him to a back room so we could work in private even though I was not really sure what I was going to do with this child. I sat down in front of the door and watched.  I was curious; I was not trying to put this experience into a box.  I visually saw a body of light floating above his physical body. That was not only a new experience for me, it was exhilarating and frightening. 
My initial thought was, “What am I seeing?” I’m was processing this when I heard a little boy’s voice in my head, “That’s my light body; you are here to help me put my light body back into my physical body.” And thus started my relationship with the population that’s known as autistic. 
Join us tomorrow for more on the topic of communicating with autistic children.

YOUR TURN: Do you think autistic children are disordered? Do you know anyone like Suzy who has the ability to understand and telepathically communicate with them? We would like to hear your story. Please leave a comment below this article.
Suzy Miller is the visionary founder of Blue Star Brilliance LLC and author of AWESOMISM: A New Way to Understand the Diagnosis of Autism. After a 22-year career as a pediatric speech language pathologist, Suzy met a four-year old child diagnosed with autism who was destined to change not only the way she viewed autism, but life in general. This powerful interaction left her with the skill of telepathy, which she uses to communicate with the highest aspects of we are, bringing awareness and integration of those higher aspects of self into our daily lives.

Protection or Integration?

During the third call of the telesummit to train empaths, Dr. Caron Goode spoke about creating and maintaining a nurturing relationship with empathic children. This post is a continuation of yesterday’s excerpt from her presentation. If you have a question for Dr. Goode, please leave it as a comment below this article.
Can we really protect ourselves from other people’s feelings if we are hardwired for empathy?  Is it true that other negative people shed their feelings and suddenly we take them on?  I ask you to clearly look at this thought form within yourself and for kids, because it makes a difference in how you handle your own sensitivity and your gift for empathy. Do you tell them they need protection from the energy of others or are you teaching them oneness through acceptance and integration?
You would have to live in isolation to be protected from sensitive feelings, and some people do. You choose a lifestyle for your sensitivity and that of your kids. Parents of sensitive, emotionally-aware children may choose to raise their child differently in this changing world.
The path of acceptance and integration helps one stretch and adapt. It is the path I choose to teach as a sensitive, healer, spiritual counselor, and coach. No matter what situation, we don’t fight and we are not passive. Rather we are active in noticing or being mindful and shifting focus, attention, or moods. Acceptance and integration has worked for thousands of people in my coaching and counseling practices who desire to learn a simple heartwise© approach. But my thinking is not steeped in Western mindset. 
From the Eastern medical philosophies, the underlying biological activity of both our mind and body is the ability to metabolize. Metabolism is a Greek word that literally means integrative transformation. It is the ongoing process by which our body builds and maintains itself, as well as the way in which our mind thinks and processes our thoughts. We are constantly taking in things from the outside world, like food and impressions that impact the senses. Everything we take in must be metabolized, transformed, and integrated into our own systems in order for them to nourish and sustain us. Metabolism accomplishes this.
All living organisms deal with and integrate the natural environment that surrounds them, including the emotional environment. In the eastern viewpoint, emotional management is the key to adapting and metabolizing this earth environment. Our mind and body systems are not programmed to deal with the artificial effects of the chemicals found in food and many substances used in the home and medicines, nor the artificially produced psychological stresses found in many families, schools, and workplaces.

Mirror Neurons and Empathy

Dr. Caron Goode’s continuous education, experience in psychology, and professional writing makes her a great resource for parents wishing to create and maintain a nurturing relationship their children. She is the founder of Academy for Coaching Parenting International and Live-Spirit.com. During Empaths Shifting into 2012, Caron spoke about working with intuitive children who have the gift of empathy and don’t fit the stereotype that most educational systems cater to.  The following is an excerpt from her presentation.
Meryl Streep said, “The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy, we can all sense a mysterious connection to each other.”
Empathy is connecting to another’s feelings and emotional intention. Babies demonstrate empathy in a global sense. Babies respond to other crying babies by also crying.
By the time a child is two and a half years old, he or she has developed a self-identity and understands the feelings of distress belonging to his playmate or parent or sibling. You will see preschool children empathize by reaching out to alleviate another’s distress through words or touch. If a child does not establish a sense of self as different from another, then they’ll mix up the feelings of themselves and others.
By age eight, a child understands the human plight of birth, death, and vulnerability. Children depend upon the demonstrations of responsiveness, warmth, and empathy from the people in their world to continue cultivating connection and empathy within themselves. Otherwise, their ability to remain empathic is up for grabs.
At a basic level, empathy is being attuned to another’s emotions and intentions. The next level of empathy involves taking action to help another, whether alleviating fears and pain or supporting or celebrating someone. Here we can get into the need, desire, or passion to fix others, change others, save others and such. More complex forms of empathy occur when people join together for survival of struggles or to pursue the vision fueled by emotional connectedness. These show us how capable we are of making deep connections. The explanation for these connections comes with the discovery of “mirror neurons.”
At the University of Parma, Italy, researchers found that when macaque monkeys observe another monkey or human perform an action like cracking a nut, the neurons that fire when the monkey itself performs the action also fires in response to watching another individual. Mirror neurons create a neuro-physiological link between one’s own experience and that of another individual. Several studies confirm that when humans observe another person’s intentional action and/or emotional expressions, they activate brain areas that are also engaged when the person would perform the action or experience the emotion himself.
Mirror Neurons are anchored in the brain and it’s one of the ways in which the process of sensation, feeling, and emotions are patterned in the body.  It is the way in which we learn from each other and feel in a similar way. It doesn’t mean that we need to take them on. We are still responsible for our own integrity of emotion.  There’s not a division between what happens in our brain and what happens in our body.  It’s the same.  I’m using these terms synonymously.  Mirror neurons anchor a feeling but it may be more precise to say that if it becomes something emotional then we have an emotion memory there—an event that’s associated with that feeling. In such cases, it becomes emotion.

Support for Empathic Children

By Caron Goode

Empathic children feel their way through the world, and they have acute mental or emotional sensibilities, and they want to be responsive to other people’s feelings. Yet, at times, their sensitivity threshold is low. They are often told, “You are too sensitive,” rather than being recognized for their gifts of emotional intelligence.

What a delight when a child is recognized for his gift of empathy! Our friend, Dr. Minette Riordan, shared that when her sensitive son Conner was five years old and entered kindergarten, she went to work in launching a local parenting newspaper, North Texas Kids. One week of every month was pressure filled with newspaper deadlines, and Conner's response was to feel his mom’s stress and become distressed also.

Connor ended up getting into trouble at school for pushing another child into a locker. The teacher was clear that he was provoked but expressed concern that Conner, a normally happy, relaxed child, should react aggressively. After a lengthy discussion about what was going on at home, Minette realized that Conner would react to her stress at work by acting out at school.

Minette learned to help Conner through these stressful times by giving him plenty of advance notice about the timing of her busy, upcoming week. She would tell Conner, "I won't be home much this week" or "You won't see me as often this week, but once we get to Saturday, I will have the whole weekend to spend with you." Moreover, Minette made herself smile, hugged her son more, and talked to him in calming tones rather than strident tones. By managing her own stress and preparing Conner, she gave him language and a way to healthfully express his distress at not seeing her enough during that week of the month.

Minette’s story demonstrates what goes on in every household with parents and children. Children feel the parents’ pain, tension stress or discord—basically the emotional energy of the home that makes everyone uptight and upset. Yes, kids are adaptable, and part of parenting is to soothe and help children learn to soothe themselves. Such interactions are even more necessary for the “sensitive kids.”

Many parents, grandparents, and teachers are guardians of intuitive children. Since many of these adults did not have a spiritually-advanced role model when they were children, they are perplexed when trying to deal with the children of today, who openly exhibit spiritual gifts.
