Divine Wisdom From Michele Livingston

by Michele Livingston


Dear Michele, my father died about 10 years ago, when he was just 55. The pain of his death was so intense that it literally left me unable to cry or grieve in any “normal” way. Life went on, and when I got married, I tried not to think about my father not being there to walk me down the aisle and asked my brother to escort me.

A couple of years after we were married, I gave birth to a baby boy—my little Charlie who just turned 4. Charlie’s an exceptional child, and when he was barely 2, a strange event happened.

I didn’t have any photos of my father displayed around the house, because they were too painful for me to look at. But on this particular day I was going through some old family photos. As I sorted through them, a photo of my dad fell out of the pile, and little Charlie picked it up. He said, “There’s Grandpa Frank!” Of course, he’d never seen or known his Grandpa, so I asked him—through my tears—how he knew that was his Grandpa, let alone that his name was Frank.

Charlie said to me, “I see him, Mommy.” From that moment on, I started to grieve and heal. My question is, how could Charlie see and know my dad? I’ve always wondered about that. Jill T.

Dear Jill, that’s a good question and one that I am frequently asked. Charlie was indeed seeing and talking to your dad, Frank. In fact we have all experienced seeing spirit at a young age. Yes, there was a time in our lives when we all were experiencing spirits! These communiqués happened in early childhood in the formative years which are approximately ages 1 to 5. Children in this age range are literally in a different energy frequency than older individuals. During this time the soul is newly implanted in the physical body and is still in connection and communication with the other dimensions. These are wonderful years, when children love unconditionally, see the world with eyes of wonder, are joyful, creative and imaginative. The formative years are also a time when the veil is thin for these souls, and small children can see, hear and feel their angels, guides and departed loved ones. They sometimes see and talk about grandparents and great-grandparents from the other side who they've never physically met in this lifetime. Many of these departed relatives have been with the child's soul before he or she was born. Soul agreements are made in the fourth dimension and departed relatives and friends can agree to be protectors, helpers and guides of the new baby in family. For example, when a young child says to his mother, "Grandpa's spirit was talking to me in my room last night"; it is important for the mother to agree and ask questions. Some questions could be, "What did your Grandpa look like? Did he tell you his name? What did he say or do? Were there other spirits with him?" Asking questions can also apply to children talking about "invisible playmates," other angels or guides. Sometimes babies will smile and coo, while pointing up toward the ceiling, possibly seeing their guardian angel!

Parents really need to persuade their children to tell them exactly what they are experiencing. Know that these little ones are in direct communication with the other side. Once a child reaches the age of 6 or 7, they automatically shut out the invisible realms, because they enter a different energy frequency. When this process occurs, it's actually for self protection. In other words, still seeing the other side would be very distracting while at school or in a work situation. In some rare instances, the child retains the ability to see spirits until the age of 9 or 10. Still in all, forgetting about the spirit world is a form of protective amnesia. Many of my clients excitedly share stories of their children's experiences and visions, while they were in the formative years. At times these youngsters even mention their past lives in detail. Parents tell me that when they do extensive research on the dates, names and places given, indeed the past life is relevant and correlates with what their child has told them.

I encourage parents and grandparents of young children to keep a notebook handy and journal everything that has been shared. My own mother kept a journal and I was amazed at what I said at the age of 3. “I'm glad I picked you to be my mama!" "Don't you remember when I was here a long, long time ago?” And there were also stories about my invisible playmate, “Pat.” These were just a few of the insights that were recorded.

When a youngster reaches puberty (around age 12), the journal that you've kept from their formative years can be presented as a gift! Wouldn't it be enlightening to remember what we told our parents about our guides, angels and past lives? So, if you are a parent or grandparent of a baby, start now to record your child's spiritual experiences. Later, when the chronicled information is reviewed with them, your teenager will not only learn about his soul journey, but will be amazed at the true spiritual revelations from childhood.

Hi Michele, love your column! I have a question about being positive because depression runs in my family. There are many down days when nothing goes right for me. You have said that we’re masters of our destiny and I try to attract good things by my thoughts, but I need more clarification on what to think or say. In other words, how can I quickly attract good things into my life? Thanks for your help, Tim W.

Tim, my philosophy is that thought plus energy (emotion) equals form. We are a product of our thinking! There are many affirmations to say to attract goodness into our lives, and remember to always start your day with the “attitude of gratitude” by counting your blessings. Next the “I Am” technique is the most effective one I know. They are powerful because in essence we are saying to the universe that we already have what we need–it's already in existence! These positive statements can open the door to the flow of the divine energy that dwells within each one of us.

In the Biblical sense, God is referred to as the great "I Am." When Moses went up to Mount Sinai and received the Ten Commandments, Moses asked the voice behind the burning bush, "Who shall I say sent me?" The voice replied, "Tell them ‘I Am, that I Am sent you.’" The name God gave to Moses was I Am. Since we are co-creators with God, when we use I Am affirmations, they become empowered and we release the full activity of God into our lives.

Before saying these positive statements, clear your mind and take a few deep breaths. The "I Ams" can be said and reinforced in any quiet meditative place–while walking in nature, soaking in the bathtub or before going to sleep at night. Personalize your list to suit your needs. An example of these could be:

I Am healed from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet...I Am important...I Am thinking important thoughts...I Am compassionate...I Am assertive...I Am confident...I Am loving myself and others unconditionally...I Am joyful...I Am debt free...I Am intuitive...I Am attracting good people into my life... I Am gaining recognition...I Am blessed, and whatever else you feel compelled to say.

When we say these affirmations we are saying I am already there! This expedites the action of the "I Ams" and puts everything in the NOW context. Say these positive personal statements daily and you will be amazed how your life will change for the better.
