If you want to know if your child is psychic, then you have to start paying attention to the things that the child pays attention to. You have to encourage the child to talk to you about the situation, and any other situations that you find to be out of the ordinary.
- Has your child ever told you that someone is coming to visit before they do?
- Does your child tell you that she communicates with people that you know to be dead?
- Does your child say that he sees things that you cannot see?
- Does the child report smells or sounds that you do not smell or hear?
- Has your child ever told you of events, past or present, that he should have no knowledge of?
When people are gifted with psychic abilities, they normally know about it early on in life. They may not understand it, but they will talk about it with you if you ask them. You simply need to approach the situation casually and naturally. If they sense that you are worried, afraid, excited or uneasy about the concept, they might hide it from you. Of course, some psychics do not realize their gifts until later in life when they have had enough experiences with it to see that it is not common. A child that experiences psychic abilities may not know that everyone else doesn't have the same experiences.
Obviously, psychic abilities are gifts from a power that non-psychics can never understand. If you feel or know that your child is psychic, then you need to accept it as a blessing and always encourage the child to express what he or she feels, as you should also with a non-psychic child. Being psychic doesn't change the fact that a person is human and that they still have the same needs that we all do, especially as children. Nurture your psychic child as you would any child. Show patience, love, acceptance, and never judge. And remember that your child is only "yours" to guide and to help develop - not yours as in ownership. Take the years that you will have with your psychic child and encourage holistic growth and happiness within its life.
