Medium Deborah Livingston explains how to Parent Children with Invisible Friends

“People’s minds are spiritually opening up to the possibilities of these gifts within their children and societal shift will transition a positive attitude that will slowly be passed down to our children.”
International Psychic Medium and author Deborah Livingston tackles a situation common to many parents – how to Parent Children with Invisible Friends

Intuitive Psychic Medium Deborah Livingston specializes in helping people across the globe with issues in family, love, career and more.  A published author and award-winning professional psychic on Shay Parker’s Best American Psychics, Deborah offers guidance to parents of children with invisible friends:   

More and more children all over the world are naturally gifted with psychic/medium/spiritual abilities/gifts. If a child is genuinely gifted they will display signs from birth on. As parents we need to not only understand but become more mindful and nurture the blessings these children possess.

We may notice a gifted child talking to themselves. They may point to things that appear not to be there to us. They will tell us about their dreams and mention loved ones they have never met that have passed. Most gifted children most always have an imaginary friend with a name and spend much of their time with such friend. This is real and a spirit from the spirit word. The spirit can be a passed loved one or a spirit guide.

There are a small percent of children that invent an imaginary friend but most are real.  These gifted children are shy and sensitive both physically and emotionally. Blessed children may speak of some incident before it has happened and then it does.  Gifted children often times have tried to indicate they are someone else and with another name and parents and what their experiences were. This is generally a past life that wasn’t completely erased before incarnating this life.

Children with these gifts may also be empaths and may not feel comfortable in large crowds. All these are signs of children with psychic/medium/spiritual gifts. Children may display some or all of these signs. In essence your child is very open, sensitive and aware of energy. 

Every child is psychic. It is upbringing, society and conditioning whether from teachers or other children. The way children ultimately begin to form their thoughts, beliefs and reality of life is what determines how open they remain. Or, it could just be their destiny. In which case to understand this destiny is how to approach nurturing it.

Psychic/Spiritual gifts in children vary from one child to the next, in an interesting array of specialties. Some children may see spirit, have physical phenomena, psychic knowledge etc. Some may have all of these spiritual gifts but some may less. It’s similar to children born with potential of professional athletic gifts, some may be on the basketball court or football field but can’t ever pick up the knack for skating or baseball.

Some are born writers but may never be able to carry a tune. Some are born artists but could never perform in a movie etc. We are all born with some sort of natural God given gifts and with most of those gifts there is provided support further education, training and practice. Most children born with psychic/spiritual gifts aren’t accepted.

When I was a child, I communicated with animals and nature. I had vivid dreams that spoke of the future. I definitely could see and talk with my spirit-guides and the spirits of my deceased relatives and physical phenomena. I always felt and someone with me walking next me and telling me everything would be ok.

I thought this was normal. I didn’t believe my parents when they said it wasn’t real. I knew better. I thought everyone was like this until I went to school and learned the truth. I felt so alone. I had no support, acceptance, no one to talk to or direct me. I felt very sad, confused and like an outcast. I never lost my gifts as I’m positive it is my destiny. I look at these gifts as a blessing and an honor. They came with me into adulthood so I decided to dedicate my life to using them to heal others.

I now have a support system, friends that share the same gifts as I and tutors that have had tutors that pass along through generations by sharing their experiences and guide me into understanding my psychic/medium/spiritual gifts and grow them stronger and stronger every day. Children that possess psychic/medium/spiritual gifts need to have the resources available to them that other born gifts have.

I feel extremely passionate and compassionate for children with these gifts. They are delicate flowers growing towards the light. They need water and love to unfold their petals of spiritual gifts. It is very important for psychic mediums such as myself to provide the education to parents interested in knowing how to nurture their children with these gifts. It would be a shame for any more children with these divine/prophetic gifts to grow up feeling as weird, strange, bullied, thinking they were crazy and alone. It can ultimately have an effect on the children as they are so open and don’t know how to deal with what they are experiencing.

For instance, if gifted children have conversations with someone invisible to other’s eyes, we shouldn’t assume there isn’t really someone there. Not to say that some children don’t make this up but most don’t. Perhaps by asking the children with this sign it may help them, understand who, what and why someone is communicating with them. Another example is if the gifted child is made fun of by teachers, friends or other family or punished, it may close their abilities down. If parents and society continue to tell gifted children that he/she isn’t really experiencing the end result of these very open and impressionable children will be to push away their unacceptable visions or communications with spirits because they don’t want to be laughed at or seen as a freak anymore.

We want to encourage our children with natural born gifts whether they are art, sports, music or psychic/medium/spiritual. The positive is the current shift in society but we have a long way to go. People’s minds are spiritually opening up to the possibilities of these gifts within their children and societal shift will transition a positive attitude that will slowly be passed down to our children. We need to keep these gifts generation after generation.

It is for this reason I am embarking on writing another book. This one will be from children for children with the born in gifts of psychic/medium/spiritual gifts. This book will have some stories of other children, what they experience and how they feel about it. It will suggest how to approach supporting your child and serve as a tool to educate you and them. Most of all it will comfort children with these gifts to know they aren’t alone and they are very special.

If you have a child with psychic/medium/spiritual gifts and would like to contact me for further information and a possible interview re: the book you may email or phone 617-817-0721. Many blessings of love and light.
