Every parent thinks their child is special. But have you ever thought that maybe your child was uniquely special—perhaps to the point of having special abilities? If so, there’s a strong possibility that your child is a psychic.
It could be that your kid mentioned something in passing that later came to be true. Or maybe your child has spoken about a person or a described a past event that you know you didn’t tell them about. These are nothing to be startled about. Rather, these are just a few of the signs of a child with psychic ability. If you’ve ever wondered whether your child has unique abilities, read about the 10 signs to look for to see if your little one is indeed a psychic.

Psychic children are able to sense things beyond the realm of normal human perception. Much of this visionary power has to do with their enhanced empathy. In average people, empathy is the ability to imagine oneself in another’s perspective. Empathy is also what allows us to relate to another person by having experienced what that other person has gone through.
But with psychic children, empathy is not just the ability to think about another person’s emotions—it can literally feel another person’s emotions. They can pick up on another person’s emotional energies and feel unspoken emotions or thoughts. Their enhanced empathy is part of how they are able to perceive or understand another person without even needing language to do so.

Heightened Environmental Sensitivity
Along with their empathic abilities, psychic children have a heightened sensitivity to their environment. Maybe you’ve had the experience of going into a house and sensing a strong energy or spirit that isn’t tied to the people who currently live there. It’s the kind of experience that some people associate with haunting. But sometimes it’s not the presence of something so much as something about the environment itself that alerts your senses. This happens because even seemingly ordinary objects, like an old wooden armoire or a hallway, can retain the energy of the past residents.
Psychic kids are able to pick up on these energies to an even greater degree because of their heightened senses to everything around them. When they are young, they may not be able to articulate what it is they’re picking up on. But that awareness is there, and kids can often feel the force of these residual energies.
People Are Drawn to Them
Has someone ever told you your child is special? Or do you notice that people are more drawn to your child than others around them? This could be an effect of the child’s psychic gift. Psychic children not only take in energy but they also powerfully give off energy. Often in children, these are very positive energies that make other people feel an overwhelming joy. Children that are psychic have the ability to elevate the moods of the people close to them. If it’s not happiness, it could still be some inexplicable feeling that makes them drawn to your child. Whatever feeling it is that they induce, psychic children can have an effect on the people around them.
Deep Connection with Animals
Psychic kids operate differently than average people. This is because they don’t always need spoken language to communicate. Their psychic abilities have to do with an expanded consciousness. For children, that comes with an ability to communicate without words or gestures. When it comes to animals, they are able to connect with them on a much deeper level that goes beyond language. If your child is especially drawn to animals, this is a good chance that it is because their unique ability allows them to communicate with each other.
Clairvoyant Instincts about People or Events
Sometimes children will surprise you with their instincts about certain people or events. Your child might say “That’s a bad person,” to someone who was perfectly nice. Or the child might say “She’s sad,” even when the person is smiling. Or maybe your child doesn’t want to go somewhere because they simply have a bad feeling. Psychics are clairvoyant, meaning they have special instincts that allow them to see deeply into a person’s soul or pick up on the energies surrounding a place.
Communicating with Loved Ones Who Have Passed On
Has your child ever spoken to you about a deceased relative? Or maybe they remember a loved one who passed away before the child could have formed any memories about that person? This is another sign that your child is psychic. Loved ones, especially family members, have lingering connections to the people they’ve left behind on earth. Psychics are able to connect and communicate with these people precisely because their vision is not limited to what average people can see.
Connection to the Spirit World
Psychic children also have strong connection to the spirit world. This is because their psychic ability is a supernatural gift. Perhaps you’ve heard your child speaking to what seems to be an imaginary friend. If so, there is a strong likelihood that they are in fact speaking to an otherworldly spirit. As long as your kid seems happy with this relationship, it is not something to fear. Not all spirits have bad intentions, and it is possible that the spirit your child is speaking to is there to act as a guide in their life.
Memories of a Past Life
Some psychic kids have such a strong ability to see the world beyond that they still retain memories of a past life. Perhaps your child remembers going to a place you know they’ve never been, such as somewhere overseas. Or maybe they recollect a house they insist they once lived in. These are further signs of your child’s psychic gift, which may be bringing back memories of a past life.
Disturbed Sleep Patterns
One of the unfortunate effects of a psychic ability is that it can be disruptive to sleep patterns. The unconscious is the realm where even average people are able to access the world beyond and the unseen world that surrounds us every day.
For a psychic child who already has enhanced abilities, the realm of the unconscious can be especially intense. It might be that your kid is on the astral plane while sleeping. This means that they are in fact conscious in their sleep. Regardless of what causes disturbances to their sleep patterns, what is important is to be there for them when they wake up. Children that are psychic need more nurturing than most to reassure them that they are safe in your protection.
Gifted with Creativity
Kids with psychic ability are extremely creative to the point of being creative geniuses. Creative geniuses often talk about inspiration coming to them from a seemingly outside source. For them, creativity is just another of the many gifts they have because they can connect so well with the world around them. Their psychic gifts allow them to imagine entire worlds. They can make connections beyond what most people with limited vision would be able to do. If your psychic child loves creative projects, support and encourage their creative activities. Creativity is a great outlet for them to express themselves.
