Chapter One

Introduction

The Beginning

It all began for me in January of the year 2000, when my son Emmet began sharing things with me that I could not explain. Had I been paying attention, I would now be setting the date even earlier, and I would be citing my son Connor as the one who forced me to think about what we narrowly define as reality, our capabilities, and about the activity that occurs all around us that the majority of us are unaware of, or dismiss out-of-hand. As a child, Connor, who was born with crystal-clear blue eyes (not the traditional murky-blue color most babies are born with), always attempted to communicate with me telepathically. I never appreciated this, finding it frustrating when I was trying to get an answer out of him or when I was trying to understand what he wanted from me. He would stare at me, full of expression and expectation. I would just patiently repeat the same question until he would sigh sadly and respond verbally. One day I remember saying to him, "I am not telepathic. I can't hear you in my head and I can't answer you that way. I'm sorry, but you'll just have to speak to me with your mouth and with words." His attempts to communicate with me telepathically ended shortly afterwards, and I have regretted my ignorance and impatience ever since. I am sure that had I asked him at the time, he would have taught me how to communicate that way, but I didn't and the result was that he repressed this natural gift.

Unfortunately for Connor, and for me, he was not able to explain or did not understand how to explain to me what he was able and attempting to do with me, and I was too ignorant and overwhelmed to realize that there was something special about this child that I could and should research and encourage him to develop. By the time Connor was obviously trying to communicate with me telepathically I had a new baby in my arms, his brother Emmet. I suppose there is no need to dwell in the past, and I have been assured that he could reactivate this ability should he ever choose to, but the point of sharing my experiences is to help others to learn from my errors and successes and to encourage parents to feel justified and empowered in knowing that their child is endowed with abilities that deserve the same consideration, respect, and support as, for example, a child that shows a tremendous aptitude for music, sports, or mathematics. All children come to us with special gifts and none should be discounted just because the establishment or our upbringing and experience do not recognize or understand them.

Emmet, unlike his brother, was not to be ignored. Being extremely verbal and interested in expressing and sharing things with me in a way that I could grasp, he forced me (kicking and screaming) to acknowledge that there was something unusual going on with him. The first time he shared anything with me was at the age of three and a half when he spoke of his "other mother" who was not from Earth and who had told him that he was different. I took note of it but was more amused than amazed by what he had said as I thought it was just a very clever way of him to side-step the few rules we had in our house. However, quickly following that initial comment came one involving Jesus, and this one made me sit up and take notice. At the time that he told me about his discussion with Jesus he had not attended school or playschool, had not gone on any play dates, and did not watch TV as we only had videos and none of them were religious in nature. We did not attend church, being uncomfortable with organized religion. My husband was an Atheist and I was ambivalent at best. So for my child to suddenly begin speaking about a conversation with Jesus, or about Jesus at all, was shocking to me. I did not know what to think, and hoping that those around me may have experienced something similar or had heard of a child speaking in this way, I reached out to others and explained what Emmet had said. This was the first and one of the only times I shared information like this with other people until now. Responses ranged from "isn't that sweet" to suggestions that he was preordained to be a priest. Some said that perhaps God was trying to get my attention to direct me towards religion, while others just discounted it as a fluke. Not one person who knew the secular environment that my children were growing up in was able to explain how or why Emmet would have said what he did, and none of them appeared the least bit interested in trying to help me to figure it out. One person I know actually scoffed at me, suggesting that I didn't have enough to occupy myself with if I was concerned with Emmet's statement as, in their opinion, kids say the "weirdest" things and were not to be taken seriously. I felt very isolated and believed that I had exposed Emmet and myself unnecessarily by sharing this information with others. I vowed to be more guarded in the future and to find a way to educate myself without compromising any of us.

This is a situation that many parents find themselves in, especially if they are not associated with people and a community that is open-minded or "new-thought" in nature. Where do parents go for information? Who do they trust? These incidents involve the one thing that is the most precious in their lives and a parent does not want to expose their child to a misguided individual who may harm them in some way - either psychologically or emotionally - or who may provide no more insight into the situation than they could have determined themselves. Some other examples of the fairly useless information I received would include, "Oh, he/she is very psychic," or "Their third eye has just opened too fast, they will learn to manage it or close it down in time". It is very difficult, if a parent does not already have a circle of trusted friends who are capable of advising them, to reach out and trust others. Advice can also often involve money, which many parents do not have to spare on potentially wild-goose chases for information and advice that they may not necessarily agree with or know how to interpret and implement.

Another difficult aspect of dealing with a situation where your children appear to be psychic or are experiencing psychic events is that it is not usually a consistent occurrence. In other words, the child is not sharing experiences on a daily basis, and a long time can pass between statements. During this time, being human and being conditioned to discount and repress that which we find unsettling, we "forget". After a few days have passed where all "appears normal" we breathe a great sigh of relief and get on with our lives, placing the incident in a file that is deeply buried within our minds. It can also be difficult because psychic children are very guarded and may not open up when others are around, no matter how close those individuals may be to them, so that to the outside world they appear to be average, normal children. This was what occurred with Emmet and long periods passed before he would share another psychic insight or experience. There is, therefore, no guarantee that they will speak openly to another person about their abilities, even if the person you have located is both capable and interested in helping.

Yin & Yang

When Emmet first began to make unusual comments to me they were all about Jesus and angels, as I have said before. It was not until he began to see and experience terrifying things that I made any serious attempt at understanding what was occurring. As Emmet did not have a great command of the English language when he began to see monsters and demons, he had great difficulty finding the words to specifically describe his experiences. In desperation I turned to the only other medium of communication I could think of and asked him to draw what he had seen. This was positive in three ways, it helped me to understand what he was experiencing, it gave me a tangible journal for future reference, and it provided him with a love of art and creative expression that is a huge part of who he is and that continues to bring great joy and satisfaction into his life. I never projected my thoughts onto his drawings, I always took what he said to be fact even if I did not agree or understand. There were pictures he drew of entities which I did not find threatening but who he described as being horrible, while ones that I thought were upsetting he described as "helping" beings. So it is important that parents give their children the right to categorize and describe their pictures without question or edits.

As some of these initial drawings and explanations had biblical connotations, I brought some of the drawings that Emmet had done to a priest in a Catholic Church that was in the next town. The priest seemed interested as well as concerned due to the content of the pictures and asked to see Emmet who was asleep in his car seat in the car. I'm still not sure what he expected to see, but after looking at Emmet for a few seconds, and being visibly unimpressed, he shrugged and told me to contact him again if Emmet ever said anything else. Later on I went to speak to a Deacon who, to be fair, did try to help and to understand, but he was just not trained or capable of grasping what was happening or providing any advice. He did, however, bless our house. I thought it was so interesting that as he was leaving, Emmet became agitated and pointed out to him that he had not blessed the inside of two of the closets that were outside of his room. The deacon assured him that the house was "blessed enough" and that all would be well. Emmet was not convinced, and I have come to learn that they really should bless every space and corner in order to cleanse it properly. The result of the blessing was that some of the negative activity subsided for a time, but it did eventually recommence. I would consider that Emmet was correct, and that the closets should have been included in the blessing.

I should mention here that changing houses seems to make no difference at all, so you can save yourself the time, hassle, and money of moving. During the period of time when most of my children's psychic communications were occurring, we moved several times for unrelated reasons. It did not affect their abilities or experiences in any way nor cause them to subside.

Love, Understanding & No Fear

Some children are very communicative about what they are experiencing while others are not. I will not attempt to categorize any of them, as I find categorization restrictive and I don't like confining anyone within the parameters of a particular category. Children are all different and each of them is amazing in their own way. Some people generalize by saying, for example, that Indigo children are very expressive while Crystal children keep their information to themselves. This may well be true, but I am not an expert in this particular field and cannot definitively tell one from the other. I can tell you that both Indigo and Crystal children are considered to be deeply spiritual and sensitive. They are healers and are here to help us to affect positive change and get us onto the right path of growth and development.

Specifically, Indigo children can be described as Warrior Spirits whose auras (the energy field that surrounds any living thing) tend to have an unusual amount of Indigo blue in them. They are considered to be intelligent, psychic, and creative and are said to be here to shake us up on both a personal/individual and global/cultural level and force us to reevaluate our lives, systems, beliefs, traditions, cultures, behaviors, and priorities, among other things. In short, they are here to push us to re-examine and reassess our society beginning on an individual level and continuing upwards and outwards until all is encompassed. They have an extremely well-defined sense of justice and of right and wrong and will not back down easily - this is why they are called Warrior Spirits. Crystal children are described as being more even-tempered and calmer than the Indigos. They are also more sensitive and so are more easily hurt. Their primary task is to act as healers. So the Indigos come to shake things up and the Crystals follow to help us assimilate and heal.

But, in my opinion, what is more important than categorizing anyone is to acknowledge that children do have these amazing psychic and spiritual abilities and experiences. Keep in mind that just because a child, your child, has not shared any out-of-the-ordinary ideas or experiences with you does not mean that they are not having them; it just means that, for whatever reason, they are keeping things to themselves. All we can do as parents and carers is to provide a loving, supportive and open environment that gives them a safe space to do and experience what they need to - an environment that does not belittle new ideas or beliefs and that allows these children to flourish and to be who they are meant to be. All children require this for even the most basic development, but for a child who is experiencing psychic events, it is even more important. The reason for this is that society in general does not support psychic experiences and development. Both directly and indirectly, consciously and subconsciously, society works to repress and remove these abilities from the individual and pushes them towards linear thinking and an accepted mass-consciousness that is not altogether beneficial to our development as individuals or as a species. Psychic abilities are often portrayed as farcical or the product of mental illness and those who claim to posses them are depicted as charlatans or kooks. Our educational system forces children to stay in the here-and-now and to remain focused at all times. Children's natural tendency to allow their minds to wander is criticized and punished, or worse still they are medicated. The day-dreamer of old now becomes ADD or ADHD and must be dealt with accordingly. Society will not accept them. Children themselves will often make fun of peers who share their psychic knowledge as they have seen and heard their parents or others in positions of authority do, or because they have assimilated cues associated with attitudes towards psychic phenomena and psychics through the media. Children who are open about their psychic abilities learn quickly that there are very few places where they are safe to experience or to share their gifts, and little by little they close them down and become fully focused on the third-dimensional here-and-now reality that our society's restrictions in thinking and perception has created. It is therefore imperative that these children, all children, feel and know that their home is a sanctuary for them no matter what.

As for me, I can say that I have been successful in doing this at times, while I have failed miserably on occasion as is illustrated by Connor repressing his telepathic abilities due to my unsupportive reaction. Children who are attempting to express or explore their psychic talents and connections require patience and time, two things which are in short measure in this day and age. It is often difficult for adults to put into words what they have experienced psychically because words are so limiting and our points of reference here in the third dimension do not provide us with the verbiage, imagery, or references that are required to accurately explain what has been experienced in other realms or dimensions. It is doubly difficult for children who are only beginning to master a language; who may not understand that all of us cannot or perhaps never have experienced what they do; and who don't see their experiences as being out of the ordinary or unusual in any way. This idea that what these children are experiencing is ordinary and normal to them only occurred to me when I was questioning my daughter as to why she had not mentioned to me that she could see colors, or auras, around people. Her response came simply and quickly, "Because I thought everybody could see them." I had to laugh at myself when she shared this, and it may contribute to the reasons why many children don't mention psychic phenomena to us. For them, it's not psychic, it's normal! It is us, as individuals and as a society, who teach them that these things are not the "norm". So keep this in mind and also remember that even if you do try to do "all the right things", a child still may choose to shut down their psychic connections. This is not a failure. It is merely what the child feels they need to do or wants to do at that particular time. The important thing is that the child feels free to choose to remain open or closed, and that they are not pressured into choosing one option over the others by their loved ones.
