Can babies see spirits? I get asked this often by mothers who are uneasy because their infants seem to stare, enchanted, at nothing. Sometimes they are frightened by this, especially new mothers, because they can’t see anything there, and they wonder if something is wrong with their precious new bundle of joy.
So, can babies see spirits?
The answer is a resounding, yes! But you already knew that, didn’t you, deep down? :)
Why Can Babies See Spirits?
The reason why babies can easily see spirits is because they have so recently come from Source/God, the loving, non-physical energy that we all originate from.
They remember and recognize the loving energy; they are still energetically open to the vibrations around them.
Babies have yet to be conditioned to ignore their intuition, to be logical, to believe only what can be proven.
They aren’t afraid of spirits because they understand that they are loving and kind…babies haven’t watched movies that make spirits out to be the scary stuff that nightmares are made of.
Babies can see Spirits because they are still vibrationally open to it. They can see the spirits of their ancestors, spirit guides and angels. It’s absolutely beautiful and magical.
How are babies still so connected to Spirits?
All living things have a soul, and therefore, come from Source/God.
Before babies are born, they are still connected to Source and their souls move back and forth from the womb to Source intermittently.
Their spirit exists in a kind of in-between realm between their mother’s body and the spirit world. Many believe that it isn’t until the baby is born and takes its first breathes that its soul fully connects to its physical body.
Babies can see spirits because the veil between Source and the earthly realm is still very thin when they are born. They can easily connect with the spirits who come to visit them, welcoming them to their new life.
How can I tell if my baby sees spirits?
There are some common signs that can indicate that your baby is seeing spirits, and they occur much more frequently than people realize, since we are conditioned to ignore our spiritual knowledge.
• Baby stares in a particular area of a room frequently
• Baby seems to be laughing or smiling at something
• Baby is mesmerized by something they are “seeing,” even when you are trying to get their attention
• Baby is laughing and talking (cooing) when they are alone in their cribs
Why would spirits appear to my baby?
Maybe the better question is, “Why wouldn’t they?” Spirits visit people often. And the reasons that spirits visit your baby is the same reasons they visit adults.
- They might have a message to relate from the other side, maybe even details that need to be communicated regarding the life the baby has chosen during this lifetime.
- Babies can also see Spirits when they are sick or distressed (as Spirit comes to comfort them).
- Spirits might come to visit to see how the baby is “settling in” to their new life and support them. Spirits celebrate the birth of a new child, a new life on the earth plane.
- Just as they often visit during other celebratory events in our lives, such as weddings, graduations and other life transitions, spirits frequently come over to visit the new earthling to celebrate their existence and answer questions they have.
What should I do if I believe my baby is seeing spirits?
That’s the best thing you can do, because really, there is nothing you can or need to do. Babies can see spirits, and that’s a good thing!
For the baby, nothing is strange or scary since they are comfortable and familiar with spirits. After all, they are laughing, talking, smiling, not crying or screaming. Take comfort in this.
Having a baby is a great opportunity for you to develop your intuition! You are a clear channel or conduit of Spirit, since your body housed this new soul and brought it into Being.
Plus, new mothers are on high alert; their instincts inform them to be aware of anything that could affect their child.
When Nature causes a mother’s instincts to kick in, it also makes you more aware of the energy around you. And you’d better believe that the spirits who have been trying to make a connection and communicate with you will take advantage of that awareness.
This new openness may have started before the birth…you may have even felt comforted by the presence of departed loved ones during your child’s birth. (No, that wasn’t your imagination!) If you have ever wanted to communicate with your spirit guides, ancestors or guardian angels, now is the perfect opportunity!
You can share a special connection with your new one by experiencing the visitations of spirits with them.
Continue your education about how our connection with Source can be tapped into and used to guide us. Read inspirational books, spend time in nature, meditate, take time to develop your intuition so that you can encourage your child as she grows.
My psychic and mediumship abilities flourished after my daughter was born. Here are some articles that will help you begin to understand your intuition:
As your child grows, encourage them to use and fully develop their intuition. Teach them to trust their feelings.
Yes, babies can see spirits, but children can remain open to this loving realm, too! If they talk with you about their visits or conversations with deceased ancestors or angels, ask them questions and listen with love. Don’t react with fear.
Unfortunately, once children become socialized, often once they begin school, they are conditioned to ignore their understanding of and connection with Source.
But you can combat that by encouraging them to trust in their instincts and to appreciate and further develop their intuitive gifts.
So, can babies see spirits? You bet! A baby’s loving, trusting energy is a magnet for the Spirit World to come and visit the house. So, relax! Know that your baby is being well looked after and cared for.
