Children are naturally intuitive and empathetic. We all come into the world with a 'sixth sense', it just diminishes in strength as we grow older. Some people still have this sixth sense as they reach adulthood, some go through a life experience that reactivates it, some people redevelop it and some lose it altogether. This sixth sense is the ability to connect with the world around us and the spiritual realm. You can be labelled a Psychic, a Reader, a Medium, an Empath, an Intuit or any other number of things if you have this sixth sense.
One of the reasons that children retain this sixth sense for a number of years is because they haven't been socially conditioned yet. This means that they haven't yet been repeatedly told that their imaginary friends are just that: imaginary; they haven't been told that they're making up 'the monsters in the cupboard' to get out of bedtime; they haven't been told to shut off that part of themselves...yet. Social conditioning is powerful and is the reason why most of us lose our sixth sense as we get older.
Another reason why children retain this sixth sense for a number of years is because their upper chakras are extremely active. (You can view a chakra chart under my Reference Tools or click here.) The Crown, Third Eye, Throat and Heart chakras are spinning at full speed: to the detriment of their lower chakras in some cases.
Why these upper chakras are so active in the early years is because of the youth and age of the physical body. It takes time for the upper chakras to work at a slower, more neutral rate and for the lower chakras to be completely active. The spirit is still learning to become grounded in the physical body and connect properly to the Earth. The lower chakras govern how we interact physically to the world around us and the upper chakras govern our Etheric body and aura. Children are still growing into the Earth so to speak.
This is why children are able to connect to the spiritual realm easily, pick up on other's emotions, have an affinity with nature and have an unexplainable bond to certain people, most notably their parents. A newborn baby's heart chakra is a beautiful thing to see when their parents are around!
As time goes on a larger number of children are showing signs of unbalanced upper chakras. This is manifesting as ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Anxiety to name a few. Although some of these can be related to Indigo Children and their purpose on Earth, most are to do with an unbalance in the upper chakras.
I've noted a few of the conditions below that manifest in children who have unbalanced upper chakras
Extremely shy children are some of the most intuitive and empathetic people around. Their sixth sense is exceptionally well developed and should be nurtured; I can't stress it enough! These children will be the Psychics, Readers and Healers of tomorrow. The reason for their shyness is because they can read others better than you think! They are very aware of any preconceived ideas that others may have about them or their family, and it upsets them dearly. They can usually pin this on people who have been judgemental with others in the past. It's a gift in itself.
Children that suffer from extreme shyness have an over-active heart and throat chakra. They are very aware and connected to the emotions of others. Slowing down their heart and throat chakras help as well as speeding up their sluggish solar plexus and sacral chakras. This will also help their self-esteem and give them a better sense of self.
ADHD is becoming much more prevalent and better understood although medication for the disorder can be brutal. Children who suffer from ADHD have an extremely slow and almost 'disconnected' base chakra. Their third eye and crown chakras are far too active too.
With this combination of unbalance in a person's chakra system there are too many messages coming at them from the spirit world and the physical world isn't connected at all. You can imagine then why it becomes difficult to connect and concentrate on everyday life with this combination of unbalance.
Children that have ADHD need grounding: and fast! This is why they take so well to outdoor activity. Aside from the fact that they get to release some built up physical energy, it also helps bring them back down to Earth. Outdoor mud-play is perfect for them too!
Childhood anxiety can be emotional for both the parents and the child. It is heart-breaking to watch a child suffer from a condition that should only be limited to adulthood.
Children suffering from Anxiety, regardless of the root reason for their anxiety (e.g. issues at school, pressure at home), all suffer from extremely active third eye chakras. Because their intuitive abilities are so well developed they can sense what may or may not happen in any given situation. Children are naturally frightened by scary images and this is what a child who suffers from anxiety sees regularly since they have such clued-on insight.
Children who suffer from anxiety take to chakra healing very well. Reactivating their other chakras and slowing down their third eye chakra works wonders as does giving them crystals to hold and keep.
As time goes on we will come across much more balanced generations of children. This will be due to a higher number of Crystal Children being born (their healing abilities will help many!) and from a better understanding of the spiritual and emotion needs of people that parents will impart. Balancing sensitive children can be done and it makes a world of difference to them and their family. So if you have tried all other avenues to help your child, don't give up, as their condition may actually stem from how gifted they really are.
