Are children psychic? Pls share your personal stories.
« on: October 03, 2018, 09:15:00 am »
Please share your stories of psychic children (yours or someone you know, or even when you were little).

By the way, I am Buddhist. I wonder if our thoughts are “visible” to the keen? or to children who are still fresh “from the other side” (of death)?

Lately, I noticed my 25 month old child can sense things, like reading my mind. Today in the morning, I was thinking about what breakfast restaurant to go to while still in bed at 7 am. All I did was roll over in bed and think about it, when all of a sudden after that very thought ended, my 2-yr old son jumped up in bed whining, “No! No! Stay in (stay home)! Stay in!” I was very surprised and asked him why? And he wanted to keep sleeping so we had to “stay in” (stay at home). Then he went back to sleep. He read my mind.

I asked my son, just for fun, "What is grandma doing?" one morning. She was in another state (California). He looked at me and smiled, then said, "Driving." I called my mom immediately and asked her what she was doing. She said she was driving.
Then I asked him, "What is Daddy doing?" He said, "Eating." So I called my husband who was doing something that day (non-work day) and asked him what he was doing. And he said, "I'm eating a burger."

The other time my Aunt was coming to visit us at home (she called me over the phone to let me know). He had no idea. After some time, he suddenly went to the window and said, “Aunt”. I looked out the window but there was nothing. A second later, I saw her car coming down the street and into the driveway.

A few weeks ago, my son was with my mom waiting for me to pick them up from the hotel. Apparently, as I was coming around the car-packed, trafficked and busy street corner, very far away (like a block away), my son pointed in my direction and told her, “Mommy!” I drive a plain white Toyota corolla and apparently there were many cars like mine passing down the street. How could he have known this car was mine?

Apparently, at least in my culture (Korea), when we share these kinds of stories of children seeing things or being psychic, they explain it away by saying it is because "they are clear minded" or their hearts "are very pure" so they are able to see these things. Korea was a Buddhist society before recent expeditions in 1900s brought in Christianity and now is a majority Christian country.

Hi TomatoSoup

Some minds can be psychic but most cannot (as taught in the Buddhist scriptures).

I do not have any stories to share about psychic children however you can only keep watch on your son to see how he develops.

I used to answer my mother's questions before she asked them, but it's nothing to do with being psychic. We are born with an ability to be mindful which starts to develop in many of us, but which gets socialized out of us as we grow older. It's only when we get the chance to develop mindfulness within Buddhist practice that it starts to return. The more mindful you are, the more you pick up from the environment and from interacting with others. We start to use all of our senses in a different way and this can give the impression of being psychic.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

Yes, I agree. I'll share something interesting.

My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for about 8 years.
It was tough.
So one day, I meditated constantly and told the universe that I was a Buddhist mother, and my womb was welcome for souls seeking a rebirth to a Buddhist household. Quickly thereafter, I got pregnant. And whilst doing "the deed" with my husband, I distinctly remember feeling something enter my body from the top-down, that I never ever felt the 99% of other times. And after that, I got pregnant. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, who died, I remember having that feeling as well before getting pregnant. That feeling of something seep inside of me from the top-down into my body. I wonder if it was a soul entering in the womb.

While pregnant, I meditated very often, and instead of listening to Mozart classics I listened to Tibetan Buddhist chanting so that my baby inside could hear them.
Nowadays I'm teaching my son to sit with me and chant. lol

Also this next story is unrelated to children being psychic, but when my Korean grandfather was alive, one day he found out he had cancer and had 6 months to live. He was a Buddhist but decided to become more serious and dedicated his life and earnings (which he earned as a translator on the US military base in Korea) to the temples. He meditated every day for long periods of time. One night, he had a dream of an old man in robes appearing before him and asking him if he wanted to live 10 more years. My grandpa said yes. The man said that if he could juggle these three balls in his hand, he could live 10 more years. My grandpa successfully did so. When he woke up, he felt very clear. Then one day, his cancer disappeared naturally, without any medication (this was 1970s Korea). My grandpa lived for 10 more years, and exactly on the month he had the dream 10 years later, he died suddenly of aneurysm.
On the night that he died, my mom had yet not known of his death. She had a dream of seeing her father, dressed in all white, which is the color worn at funerals and representing death in Korea, looking at her from inside the house through the window very sadly.
