I have seen children as young as 18 months who are intuitive. It is not something that needs to come in when a soul is at a certain age; it is with them when they are born. Often I have been talking to a person and watched their child “watch” the space around me as if they could see something nobody else could. Of course, animals have this ability also, and this is why we feel so wonderful when we hold an animal or stroke them. They, too, (as has been proven) have healing ability, but we cannot talk to them and ask what they see, whereas with a child we can do so.
To me the most important thing is to let children know that their intuition is nothing to be feared and to encourage them to use it whenever they can. My concern, though, for my grandchildren is that the energy of our house could really create problems with their intuitive talents. The house is very energized. In fact, people comment on the energy as soon as they walk in the door. When my daughter came to our old house, she had vertigo for a number of days after her arrival as did her sister-in-law. I suppose time will tell; I will not know until they arrive. It was interesting in the fact the women had the vertigo but the men had nothing!
More and more children today have the ability to be intuitive and many of them – if not born with it – develop it before they are 10 years old. They need to be taught how to deal with the energy and how to use it to help others. I know it will happen eventually, but we can start now by talking about it around our children or grandchildren and encouraging them to speak out about it when they feel the need to.
