Share your spiritual wisdom with little minds, says psychic medium Lillyanne
With the hot summer days upon us and the kids at home for the holidays, I’ve been fielding some questions lately from parents who are intrigued about their children’s own spiritual learning. This is especially the case where parents have noticed their little ones taking a shine to crystals that they have in the home.
Spot their gifts
Children are blessed with naturally inquisitive, curious minds, and they just can’t help it when they see something that piques that curiosity. What’s more, it’s during those early years that young people often exhibit the first signs of what may prove to be a rich spiritual gift later in life. Any parent knows that kids have a special way of looking at the world, and despite being quite direct, is also often surprisingly profound because most children are very much in touch with signals they get from their souls. Everything is possible to a child whose curiosity hasn’t been dimmed by what society tells them is ‘impossible’.
Begin with crystals
If you’re a parent who’s noticed your child displaying a spiritual curiosity, there are ways in which you can encourage that, and help them to manifest a beautiful connection to the Universe that will contribute to their happiness and fulfilment all through life. Crystals are an excellent starting point for a spiritually gifted child for many reasons, especially as children are naturally drawn to the positive, healing and protective energies given off by crystals. If your child takes an interest, try engaging them in conversation about how crystals can be helpful in daily life, and ask what about them drew the child’s attention.
As anyone who works with crystals knows, it’s important to trust your intuition in choosing the right crystal for the right intention. Because children are so naturally intuitive, they can pick out right away which crystals match their natural energies. Get them to select a crystal from an assortment of your own, or from your local spiritual shop. Ask them how that crystal makes them feel, and why they picked it out of all the others. If your child reacts positively, you can start thinking about fostering their long-term spiritual growth. Teach them about imbuing crystals with intent, how to cleanse and look after their crystals, and what properties each have that can help them in their life. This could be the start of an amazing journey for you and your child.
Try these crystals together
My recommendations for crystals that children often find an affinity for include amethyst (to draw out spiritual intuition, provide healing and calmness and promote a sharp and healthy mind), turquoise (for reassurance, inner calm, and creative problem solving), rose quartz (love and assurance) and tiger’s eye (to encourage dream chasing, self-esteem and courage). However, children can get amazing results with a wide variety of crystals, and each child’s spiritual path is as unique as they themselves are, so don’t be afraid to give them room to explore!
