Children would seem to be the most vulnerable to the influence of spiritual negativity, but they are actually very adept at combating negative interference. From their neutral innocent standpoint, young children are inherently sensitive to the spiritual realm and already understand how to deal with it.
From early in life children are enticed to interact with beings that exist in higher dimensions and, while adults call this imagination, it is very real. Sometimes, when a child senses the presence of an inter-dimensional being, it will be in the form of something that begs their trust, like a friendly ghost, an angel or a beautiful fairy. Rather than immediately accept the impact of such an encounter, a child’s first reaction should be to refuse and throw Light* to hit the being. If the being is positive, the Light will give it energy and it will sparkle its own spiritual Light. If the being is negative, it will retreat or vanish when hit with the Light. If more children were aware of how to use the Light in self-defense, fewer would suffer from the interference of negative beings that feed off of their energy.
As creatures of instinct, we all have the choice to react with fear or defiance when threatened at all levels of our being. If you react in confidence by refusing first, fear will not be given the opportunity to present itself and break down your defenses. A child’s imagination can yield powerful results when counteracting negativity, as children are constantly being challenged in their efforts to remain in a positive state.
An example from my early childhood might help to explain how a child whose spirit is helping them to resist the pervasiveness of negativity can stand up to a coercive invitation to interact in a negative realm. While I don’t remember most childhood dreams, this one stands out significantly.
When I was eight years old, I awoke in a dream to find what I recognized to be a ‘witch’ sitting up beside me in my bed. (She looked like the witch from the “Mighty Mouse” cartoon.) When I saw her, I was petrified and stood up on the bed to face her. The witch told me that she had brought me a gift, and held out a necklace made of round stones that I should put on. When I refused her gift, she told me that she had come to take me away with her. When I kept telling her that I wasn’t going to go anywhere with her, she wouldn’t take “No!” for an answer. As she tried to break my free will, I remained steadfast and didn’t allow her to break my resolve. As a child I perceived the being that appeared to me as a witch to be ‘bad’ and I was not going to give in to her.
Finally, after what seemed like a very long time (and was probably only a few split seconds), I thought of something. I told her that, if I were forced to go with her, I would have to say good-bye to my parents. The ‘witch’ agreed and allowed me to get out of bed and go downstairs to say my farewells. When I returned, I brought my father with me, wielding a gun. The witch disappeared and I woke up, trembling, in the tranquility of my bed. My father often worked nights, so he wasn’t even home, nor had he ever owned a gun.
Although at the time I didn’t consciously know how to work with my spirit, my spirit knew how to help me to use my imagination as a tool to properly refuse while in my dream state. Many of our higher-level encounters occur in the dream state, so it’s important to learn how to bring positive knowledge to all levels of our being. If I had accepted the offer of the necklace, I would have accepted some sort of inter-dimensional loyalty to that being. If I had accepted the summons to leave my body, I would have accepted and succumbed to whatever unknown terms went along with that agreement. Fortunately, even as a child, I chose to be positive. After that point, I went through the hardest part of my life, but I still refused to give in to all the negativity that continued to challenge me.
My spirit has been helping me all my life, but I had been conditioned to let go of that all-important connection to the highest part of myself. Thankfully, I reconnected with my spirit and will continue to learn and, hopefully, inspire others to work within with their own spirit.
My work with Leo Jean has brought me many lessons in how to deal with spiritual negativity, and next I’ll share the story of how a young man was tricked into responding to almost exactly the same enticement that I faced with the ‘witch’ in my dream.
