Does your child have a hard time sleeping in their own room at night?
I have some easy tips you can do for your kids whenever they see ghosts, spirits or even shadows that talk.
Several of my friends on Facebook told me that their children were seeing and talking to shadows and talking to dead people and that they were some times afraid to sleep in their own bedroom.
I like to get the kids involved. I think it is a good way to help them to step into their power and realize there are things that they can do to help themselves. It really helps put them in charge of an uncomfortable situation.
One of the best things you can do is de-clutter the bedroom and the house. So throw away all the trash and get everything in its place.
A really clean bedroom or energy field makes it more difficult for negative entities or energies to grab hold of something and hang around. I think clean is a good thing!
Does Your Child See Ghosts?
Another thing you can do is get a cup of warm water and dissolve about 2 Tablespoons of sea salt in the water.
Just sprinkle here and there.You can use just the sea salt dry too. In a pinch plain table salt. These are good ways of dispersing negative energies.
What we want to do is turn the tide of energy so the vibration of their bedroom is very high and sweet.This will help if you have negative entities, energies or hangers on.
Remember, if it is a loved one, this is not going to make much of a difference.
If there is some extreme unfinished business, it is really important that you try to get some peace about that. This would be something like a suicide or if someone died in an accident, completely out of the blue.
If there were things unresolved between the child and the spirit, you want to work through these pieces, try to forgive the spirit involved, or maybe yourself. Bless the situation, so you can get it behind you.
It is really important that you engage with the situation and get a sense of peace about it. Release any negative energy you are holding toward that spirit – fear, disappointment, sadness or anger – or any other negative emotions. That quite often will help make it possible for that spirit to feel better about moving on – if they feel like things are ok and handled here back home.
Here is what to do if you have more energy in the room that you feel is negative ...
This is something that happens sometimes with teenagers living in the house, because their energy bodies are unstable right now. They are going through a chaotic time as they are maturing and nothing is really seated yet.
It can be a really awkward time, because of that it can attract a lot of unsavory entities and energies that want to make use of all that emotional and mental overwhelm going on.
A very simple invocation that I love which is powerful and of the Angelic realm that you can easily do and teach your child to do is: I call the Archangel Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, and Uriel to me. I ask that you stand around my room and guard my room and me while I sleep. For the highest good of all, thank you!
You can also teach your child to ask that their most holy guardian angel sit with them tonight and protect their entire room and help to keep peace while they sleep.
One thing that I did with my step son is I had him make a Mandala – a Dream catcher. We made it together.
This is a simple technique you can have them help you make. A simple, easily understood thing to say is … we are making a medicine object, a good luck charm that we can hang over your bed. It will catch any bad dreams and any negative spirits because they are attracted to the shiny objects in the dream catcher and they get caught up in the web. So they can't bother you.
I think it is a really cool way of engaging them. Using their creativity, their imagination and helping them to take steps forward, allows them to step into their own power by doing something to help them sleep better at night and feel safer, feel more comfortable in their room. This worked wonders for my step son. He was scared to death to sleep by himself.
We did this together and after we made the dream catcher we did a prayer over it to bless and consecrate it to his goal. His goal was to be able to feel safe in his room. So that is how we organized our prayer. We asked the angels to bless this dream catcher so that it would protect his room and him so he could sleep peacefully. This one worked just like a charm 🙂
There are a lot of things that you can do to help set up a peaceful and protective environment. There is a good book by Karen Kingston that is about creating sacred spaces using Feng Shui. She breaks it down using bite sized bits and pieces of things that you can do to turn the energy around in your house. I also like a book by Denise Lynn, Sacred Space, to help do the same thing.
Take a few minutes to watch my video for some more information and ideas to help! There is a Five Ways to Enhance the Energy of Your Home videos series on You Tube that I did, which has different tips and approaches to creating a healthy, happy environment to live in.
