At this point, almost two years had passed since Kiani came to me about her ability to see spirits. I couldn’t help but be amazed at the changes in our lives.
Before, both of us suffered almost every night with nightmares and night terrors (for me, they had been lifelong; I didn’t know what a good night’s sleep was). I also suffered from random bouts of depression and exhaustion, which sometimes left me almost unable to function.
My daughter’s anxiety was bad.
She was so scared of going anywhere without me that even playdates and birthday parties were a challenge.
The type of spirits my daughter saw regularly were frightening. Red-eyed creatures staring at her through windows, ghosts with sunken eyes and missing body parts, reptilian creatures, floating human torsos, black shapes lurking in corners of our house and on the sidewalk below, black orbs streaking past her face, black arms and hands reaching out of walls and floors, and menacing laughter coming from nowhere. It was truly no wonder my daughter felt terrified. This is no way for anyone to live, let alone a child.
Kiani also suffered with a constant sense of being “bombarded” with energy that wasn’t hers. Not knowing why or what was happening to her, her mind and spirit instinctively responded to this by throwing out her own energy in the form of constant movement, constant chatter, and random silly noises.
Kiani was never quiet or still. Even when she slept, it never stopped. She would thrash, whimper, and grind her teeth almost every night. She had trouble focusing on schoolwork, and even though she loved to draw, she couldn’t do it for long.
Now, after learning spiritual protection, nightmares and night terrors are in the past for us. We sleep peacefully. Kiani’s thrashing, whimpering, and teeth grinding have stopped. My unexplainable bouts of depression and exhaustion have stopped.
Kiani can now sit quiet and still for hours. The need for constant movement and noise has been greatly reduced. Her drawing skills and schoolwork have improved, along with her focus in general.
Kiani’s need to be constantly with me has changed as well. She loves going to slumber parties and parks with her friends, can sleep on her own if she needs to, and loves to walk down the street to the neighbor kids’ houses.
The scary sounds, dark shapes, and disturbing ghosts are gone and with them, Kiani’s fear of the spirit world. With that fear gone, she’s been enjoying lots of new experiences.
For almost a year now, Kiani keeps seeing a little red light. It looks exactly like a laser light dot. It appears for a few seconds at a time on creative projects that she is working on (she loves to draw especially!), and once, it appeared on a little, framed photograph of one of my deceased grandfather’s handwritten poems.
I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first. Having now read accounts of spirit guides often appearing as tiny dots of light, I’m almost certain it’s one of her guides. Time will tell.
Kiani also started developing a new ability a few months ago. I’ve been told it’s called “Clairaudience” and includes not only hearing the spirit world (which she was doing already) but hearing sounds that aren’t physically within her range of hearing (a bit like when a psychic sees something in their head that is happening elsewhere).
On two occasions, she has heard snatches of conversation between two or more people, which took place anywhere from thirty to fifty feet outside the building while she was inside, with the windows and door closed. She said it sounded exactly like they were standing right next to her when they were definitely not.
She was a little spooked by it at first, but I think she’s settled in with the idea for the most part. I can’t wait to see how her abilities develop over the years, and now, neither can Kiani.
She said the most wonderful thing to me one day.
“Mommy, is it weird that I think ghosts are boring now?”
I laughed. “No! It’s not weird! It’s awesome! Your abilities will always be there if you need them, but for now, you can just relax and be a regular kid.”
“You know what I might do when I grow up, though?”
“What’s that?” I asked, curious.
“Maybe I can be a psychic for the police and help them find missing people. Wouldn’t that be COOL?”
“Ki, that would be AMAZING.”
