Welcome to the kids’ corner. I believe that children possess some of the most amazing connections with the other side. Being a mom of two amazing boys, I know in watching them grow their connection with the other side has evolved in various ways.
They have gone from scared of the things they weren’t sure of, to making connections with the other side, to confused of what was happening, to talking to those on the other side, and so on.
I’ve seen throughout all my years of spirit work, that kids need to make a connection with themselves. That making deeper connections with their emotions as well as finding their creative outlets, helps them not only to make those connections, but allows them to grow in such a beautiful way. Trusting, listening to their intuition, and really finding their way through and navigating this crazy world.
Children need and deserve an understanding of self, and protection first before anything else. This is where Spirit and I like to begin. Once we get those connections growing, we can then help them to understand their gifts and to grow from there.
Within the Juniper Theory, you will find some amazing classes for your child/children. Classes are designed so that parent and child can find their connection together as well as separate. Thus growing and finding their new healed, healthy, expressive outlets through spirit and the day too day.
Check back for our upcoming summer class schedules for kids of all ages!
Here you will find some tips and tools about how to talk to your kiddos, a bit of guidance, and classes to help them to grow their connections in a healthy way.
What’s beyond the clouds? When it comes to learning about the spirit side of things, it can be a bit tough explaining the “other side.” I remember being taught that heaven, or the other side, was just beyond the clouds. See when we are young it’s hard to conceptualize not only death and dying, but where there is to go after. Allowing for a child’s mind to connect with something tangible in a sense, helps for them to grasp the concept a little bit easier. So, if we say, those that you lost are beyond the clouds, it’s a way to give a child a place to connect with. So, say they are missing someone, they are able to look up and have a place to share, speak, connect emotionally.
The beauty in the clouds. Guardian Angels have so many various, stories, and tales. A Guardian Angel is someone they may have been within your ancestral line, could’ve be a relative who passed right before your birth. It may be someone of a higher level who is guiding you to being one of the greatest changes in this world. Your person is assigned to you based on your purpose in this lifetime, your journey in this life. Learning to touch base with them and learning to hear their guidance.
The magic in their minds

Connecting with themselves
Children need a way to connect with their emotions, as well as who they are. That little voice inside that helps them to navigate this world, with a little bit of knowing that if they listen, that they will find their ways. Looking for ways to also grow and find their creative outlets, to express and feel in ways they may have not be able to find before.
Signs are all around! From butterflies, to birds, the memories that flood through at the right time. Signs are all around from your Guardian Angels to your loved ones who have passed way, to your pets on the other side. Signs can be from those spirits trying to guide you, to help you along the way. When you are needing a little guidance, help, a little nudge to help show you which direction you need to go, or letting you know you’re on the right path. Speaking out-loud to your Spirit team, those that you’re missing, they hear you, they will guide you in all the ways they can. Letting you know you are never alone.
Afraid of so much…
Being a child can be so scary at times, especially for those who are sensitive to Spirits. Sometimes it’s seeing, sometimes it’s feeling or sensing, other times it’s just the knowing that we are not alone. When this happens, it can be unsettling, because for a child, as well as an adult, we can feel a bit unsettled, especially when we can’t tangibly touch it. The greatest thing we can do for our children is to allow them to have these experiences to happen, while giving them the direction to connect with God/Spirit/Loved ones, to let them know they are protected. Some of the greatest gifts are carried by the little ones. There are no blockages, and this allows them to really connect with their own intuition.
We don’t always know what the future holds, and for a child it can be hard to move through things without knowing the outcome. Those who are incredibly empathic and feel the weight of the world, those close to them, have emotions flooding in every direction if can really be hard to deal with. The unknown can be scary especially when they can feel things from all directions. In giving them room to feel, to express, to learn that not everything they are carrying is theirs, and how to take care of that when the load is getting to hard to carry, will give them the light they are needing in the times that it feeling darker, or heavier.
They carry a light within
The light that is in that heart that they carry. Not always knowing what it is, how to use it, what it means for their spirit and soul. This light is a light of healing, of directions, guidance from above. There is a space within them that they will always carry with them even when they hit obstacles, walls, do things that they may need to seek forgiveness for. This light is always there to carry them in the times that they may need a little bit of help. The light though too, is guided by the love they have for themselves. A fundamental in the scheme of life, one that will always be there, and with every ounce they give out, they put in equally to themselves, this light will always shine it’s brightest.
The power of knowledge
Knowing that there is more out there, giving guidance to chase their dreams, allowing the world to not seem as grim and heavy all the time, yet preparing them for what they may face in years ahead, is simply all you can do. Teaching them to trust in themselves, to find comfort in they are never truly alone, that there is a more out there for them to rely on when there may not be those close to them that they can, is the best knowledge you can give. Loving, helping others, helping and loving self, and trusting in the power of their mind, their voice, that little whisper, is magic and powerful.
Trust in something above
God, Spirit, loved ones, a Higher Power, whatever you believe in. There is something powerful to giving trust up, believing you are deserving of all you could dream of and more, and letting go of control. Sometimes we get in our own ways, we try and push our beliefs, what we want someone else to see and absorb. Really though no one can tell you how to trust in something above, it’s a feeling, it’s something only you can find, it’s something that you must give time to, and then when it happens, it’s the most magical thing. For kids it’s about letting them explore and feeling and sense. Their awareness is far greater than ours. It’s something that comes from above when they are born, and when it’s not dismissed or hidden, their ability to see the world in a way that their purity carries, allows that connection to form in such a way, that it’s not just above, it’s everywhere.
Share through creativity
Oh creative energy, speaking from the soul. A way to let it all out, sharing it, healing through art, expressing the things we can’t find words too. It’s a great way to tap inward and outwardly. Listening to what colors speak, while allowing the strokes, the markers, the colors to share a bit about who you are, what you feeling and it becomes its own therapy!
