Kids Seeing Sparkles

I get so many great questions, either while lecturing and conducting workshops, or through phone conversations and emails. They are so important to everyone, that I’ve decided to share some of them that could be of benefit to everyone.

The following is the answer to a question send to me from a woman searching the internet for information about what her young daughter was seeing: Sparkles.

I thought this article would be a great way for many people to gain from one person’s question. By presenting the question along with the answer I provided, I have chosen to change names and some circumstances just to keep anonymity. The woman who contacted me, “Karen” has given permission to share this information with you. And I send my heartfelt thanks and best wishes to her and her sweet family.

Karen found me on Google while trying to research “sparkles” that her 7 year old sees. Her daughter has been seeing “sparkles” since she first told Karen about them when she was only 2. She was trying to catch them… jumping up, etc with her hand opening and closing.

Karen asked her daughter asked her various questions regarding the sparkles. She sees thousands of them… all different colors… all the time. Day, night, light, dark, etc. All the time.

Her daughter is amazed that no one else can see them. She assumed for a few years that everyone could. Her siblings are teenagers and she doesn’t talk about them as freely with them, since they are skeptical about her seeing the sparkles. Her eyes/vision were tested and they were fine. Karen asked her pediatrician and he said she was playing – kind of an imaginary friend.

There are no “bad” ones, except she doesn’t seem to like the small black one she sometimes sees. She said they are just round and look like sparkles. They don’t talk, they aren’t “people”.

Karen asked me to explain to me what she could be seeing. Is this good or bad for her? Are they auras? They seem to be in rooms, but not “on” people. Not stronger or lighter on people, just around… everywhere.

Here is my answer to her:

Thank you so much for connecting with me. I certainly hope I can bring some resolve to you.

First of all, I feel you are very blessed to have a daughter who is open and sharing with the things she sees or witnesses. I know she is eight now, but as a two year old, she could not possibly make up something like that. Her natural responses to the phenomena is proof enough to me that it is real.

But besides that, I have known other children who see or hear or feel things other than the normal physical things we are comfortable experiencing. It is important to realize that we are all spirits. We are spirits who are really living in a physical body, experiencing the earth plane, or third dimension. Then you start to open to other possibilities. We actually are limited in many ways by our physical bodies!

Have you ever tried to walk through an open door, only to bump into the side of the frame with your hip or shoulder? That is because the true self (spirit being) saw no limitation. But the physical body really is limited by the physical doorway.

Your daughter is not seeing limitation. She sees things of a spiritual-realm nature. It is natural and normal. It exists, whether we see with our physically limited eyes or not. There is a story about the time when there were only natives living in the Americas… long before it was United States. There were men from Europe who were searching for other lands in their ships. They came to the eastern coast of America. The Indians who lived there did not see the ships because there mind had never witnessed anything that represented such a thing. It was totally foreign to them. The brain could not register the vision of the ships.

Several days passed and the leader started to notice ripples in the water… slowly then began to see what had always been there – the ships.

Our children these days are coming into the world totally aware of the spirit realm. They see no limitation. We must be alright with that, because it shows how wonderfully our human race is evolving!

My daughter was born in 1974. She was raised in an openly spiritual environment. We taught her about communication with angels, spirit guides and loved ones who have passed away. When she was about 30 years old she reminded me that she could see things in the dark atmosphere of night. She described it as looking at a television set when the network picture was not on… gray fuzzy stuff. Only she saw it anytime at night, not when she was looking at television.

When she focused on it, the fuzz started to move and change, then take form. It would shift into animals and scenes that she recognized. Sometimes it was fearful to see, because she didn’t understand some of the things visible to her. They looked scary, like monsters.

It took a long time for me to understand what in the world she was talking about. Even when she explained it in terms I could understand, I still didn’t get it. (Qnd I’m a spiritual medium! ) So for your husband and other older children to question the validity of the experiences, I totally understand. They just don’t “get it”.

But that’s okay. It isn’t important for them to understand. Your daughter knows you believe it, and that is enough.

I believe she is seeing ethereal energy. It is not people’s auras per se, but the same stuff that they are made of. It is just an unorganized form of that energy: pure and simple. Quite a blessing.

As she grows, she may begin to see it change and take form too. I hope she is able to continue to describe these sparkles to you, especially as they take form. She may be the one to write the book on these experiences.

I hope I have settled some things in your mind.

Pediatric Crash Cart Medications

Pediatric crash cart is a crash cart or a “code cart” that is used for the emergent needs of young patients, six years and younger. Just like the adult code cart, the pediatric emergency code cart is placed in the hospital areas where it is expected that it could urgently be needed, in places where kids “crash”, or where the chances are that the kids may lose consciousness and need be resuscitated. Places such as in and near emergency rooms, intensive care rooms, delivery rooms, recovery rooms. We will explore the main differences between the pediatric, or child crash cart, and the adult trash cart here.

If you are in a position where you must decide on the type of the emergency carts that you are looking to acquire for your medical center or hospital, then this information will be valuable to you. You will be better able to see exactly whether you need a pediatric crash cart and why.

The main differences between the pediatric code cart and the adult medical code cart are: The type of the AED device used for reviving the child’s heart, the types of medicines, and the types and sizes of incision equipment, tubing, and other life-saving supplies.

AED devices for pediatric crash cart

Automatic Electronic Defibrillators, AEDs, or AED machines, are designed in two sizes, adult, and pediatric. Children’s hearts are smaller and beat faster. Their bodies are smaller and they require smaller electrode pads for defibrillation. Therefore, a pediatric code cart needs to be equipped with a pediatric AED machine, and with the appropriate sized electrodes. In an emergency, there is no time to switch over the machines and the electrode pads, so it is best to keep a pediatric AED machine ready on a pediatric code cart.

The pediatric crash cart medications

Not all medicines that are suitable for adults will be suitable for the children also. Some narcotics, for instance, may simply be too strong for the child’s body to sustain without the adverse reaction.

The medications you will find in regular emergency cart contents but you will not find on the pediatric crash cart medications list include the following drugs:

  • Amiodarone
  • Magnesium Sulfate
  • Procainamide
  • Vasopressin
  • Verapamil
  • Etomidate

Different sizes of incision equipment and tubing

All types of scalpels, tubes, syringes will be of smaller size, suitable for the size of a toddler or a small child. They include endotracheal tubes to access the inside of child’s windpipe, tracheotomy tubes to construct artificial opening into the windpipe due to difficulty breathing, nose tubes or nasal cannula, air flow meters, laryngoscope supplies, exam gloves, and suction devices such as suction catheters. Many of these come in child sizes to better fit the small bodies, be it for diagnostic or for resuscitation purposes.

Kids and Cell Phones

As parents, you may have purchase your child a cell phone as a means of protection so that your youngster would never be caught somewhere without a ride or could always call home to check in. What you may not have been aware of is the dangers that cell phones can cause. Due to the Internet connection available on most cell phones, your kids can become targets of bullies and sex predators.

Statistics show that that approximately two-thirds of U.S. children between the ages of 10 and 19 have cell phones. In other parts of the world, the rate is even higher. In Japan, for instance, more than 80% of high school students and 25% of junior high school students had cell phones. Great Britain and Scandinavia also have high rates of children with cell phones. These other countries are where many disturbing statistics are coming from.

The Japanese Cabinet Office surveyed teenagers with cell phones and found 37% of teenage males and 30% of teenage females had accessed dating sites. These sites had led to some girls having unwanted sexual relations with men that they met through these sites.

Another danger with the newer cell phones is the ability to share photos and videos taken with a cell phone which can mean that just by pushing the wrong buttons, your child’s picture, phone number, and e-mail address can be sent to the wrong person. You can also download pictures from a cell phone and place them on the World Wide Web for everyone to see. That is why some schools have banned cell phones from restricted areas such as locker rooms to prevent inappropriate pictures being taken. As well as pictures that your child may be sending from their cell phone, they are also able to view inappropriate material away from home and you may know nothing about it.

Another problem with cell phones is that they are phones. As well as sending kids pictures, sexual predators can also contact them through their cell phone number to arrange a meeting when the kids are outside their parent’s control. Most cell phones have caller ID, which means the minute that your child contacts this person, the person has their cell phone number.

As well as sexual predators, bullies are also using cell phones to harass other children. This has become a major problem in Great Britain, where 16% of young people say that they’ve received threatening text messages as well as 7% that say that they have been harassed in chat-rooms. Another 4% claimed to be bullied by e-mail. If your child is the victim of such harassment, check with your wireless provider about getting the phone number changed.

Another problem with cell phones is that these phones are equipped with geo location systems so that dispatchers at 911 can pinpoint the phone’s location in case of an emergency. While this tracking system is supposed to be secure, it is not infallible. If the wrong person has the know-how, he can track your child wherever they are.

There are several measures that you can take to protect your child. First you should discuss the situation with them, explain that they should never text messages to anyone that they do not know personally. If they still persist in texting everyone, trade their present plan for a prepaid one with a limited amount of minutes. With fewer minutes, your child will have to decide to talk on the phone or to text. Since texting is usually more expensive, your child will probably go back to just talking on the cell phone, which is what you had originally planned for them to do in the first place.
