The Problem With Children who See Spirits

There’s a serious problem with children who see spirits. But here’s a hint: the trouble with children who see spirits… isn’t the children. Around us all the time is a reality that is largely unseen, but not unnoticed. It’s the spirit realm, or the spiritual world, or the unseen realm, whatever you want to call it. Do not think of…

The Purpose of the Seer Gift

A reader wrote to me, asking what the purpose of the Seer gift was.  I did a quick search on this site, and was sort of surprised that basically nothing came up that was very helpful. Therefore, I adapted the email I sent back into this post. Before we get to the purpose of seers, let’s sum up exactly why you…

5 Simple Ways Seers Don’t Have to Walk Alone

I wasn’t sure why I was sitting by her. I had seen her around at church, but I didn’t even know her name.  And there I was, at a potluck meal, sitting at a table with six people I didn’t really know, right next to this young woman. The organizer of the event invited us to stand in a circle…

Seers and Cell Phone Batteries

Modern Fantasy Fiction and Teens, Part 1

Many parents, especially Christian parents, have expressed concern with their kids reading a lot of modern fantasy fiction. Witches, vampires, zombies, werewolves, wizards… are stories with these as characters safe to read? Are there alternatives, especially for teenagers who like to read? A friend posted a similar question in a Facebook group we belong to, and many responses can be…

Seer Children, Father Christmas, Santa and the Three Kings

A couple years ago on this night, I revealed to my seer child that Santa Claus was not “real.” In many cultures, parents participate in the mythical idea of a creature called Santa or Father Christmas (in some countries, it’s the Three Kings) who brings presents to good girls and boys on Christmas morning. Particulars of course vary. The idea…

Seers on Halloween

We’re approaching Halloween: that time of year again where there’s a heightened cultural interest in witches, ghouls, stuff that go bump in the night, and generally things that scare us   – or at least things that used to scare us.  In other words, there’s an elevated interest in all things occult. Reviewing the recent search engine terms that direct traffic…
