Children with a Spiritual SolePath are our Celestial Children, and they are strong, steady and wise. Celestial is heavenly and divine, and Celestial Children have a focus on the abstract and sublime.
The superpower of the Celestial Child is Extrasensory Perception. This means that they are a spiritual observer who is wise, has faith and is a mystical explorer.
Your Celestial Child is connected to ‘what you cannot see’; things such as beliefs, elementals (fairies, elves) and angels.
Imaginary friends are a big part of your child’s life and, while they obviously aren’t ‘real’, imaginary friends can help the Celestial Child develop imagination and communication skills and can provide emotional support and understanding of the world.
With their rich inner world, the Celestial Child can sometimes seem as if they are ignoring you, disconnected from daily practical reality. Talk gently and give your child time to respond to changes in their situation. For example, situations which are disruptive for them could be: having to stop what they are doing at dinner time, having to leave the home at a certain time, or any activity change that is initiated by you.
The Celestial Child is very unsettled by disharmony and needs things to run smoothly. Their natural predisposition is to please you. Make sure that doesn’t turn into a negative experience for them and a manipulative opportunity for you.
Your Celestial Child is a surveyor of life, an evaluator of what is going on around them.
As an eyewitness, looking on, your child perceives beyond the obvious and routine and gains a deeper understanding. The Celestial Child notices things that others miss using all five senses to detect and discern. They interpret what is going on verbally and non-verbally.
As a baby, the Celestial Child, will look you in the eye; as they get older, your child may stare. Help them to understand when this is appropriate and when this isn’t. The Celestial Child’s observation allows them to see things clearly and calmly, and they will be deeply affected by negative people and environments.
Your Celestial Child is strong, steady and wise. They are a constant and steady person with fortitude, on whom others can rely.
Your child values real meaningful connections with both adults and peers. As an adult, they will struggle with small talk! Once friendships are made, they will be lasting. Sometimes their strength can make them appear too serious, and it can make them appear somewhat aloof and superior.
The Celestial Child has extraordinary perception and insight and may seem wise beyond their years. Your child may feel out of sync with what their friends worry about or slightly removed from day-to-day situations. You will notice that they will be sought out for their wisdom and advice and may gravitate to friends who are older than them. Let your child be discriminating about who they would like to spend their time with, they don’t open up to everyone. They are a perceptive soul who is quite happy with their own company.
Your Celestial Child is a curious mixture of trust and distrust, but they can have faith and trust in life if, from a young age, they are exposed to uplifting spiritual, mystical or religious beliefs.
Give your child the opportunity to believe in something ‘bigger than themselves’. They are spiritual observers and can perceive beyond the obvious. Their life is moulded by their beliefs.
In everyday life, ensure that your words and actions match, as this will help them to trust you. It will give them certainty, fill them with hope and help them look on the bright side.
The Celestial Child is a mystical explorer. Your child will likely dream more than other children.
Provide the forum for them to talk about their dreams and help them to make sense of this. Keep away from fear-based or superstitious interpretations; dreams are symbolic and don’t predict negativity.
The Celestial Child is naturally curious about the supernatural. Find books, shows and mentors who can make this exploration a positive and uplifting experience.
Their Extrasensory Perception superpower is how your child interacts with the world. You have learned that they are a spiritual observer who is wise, has faith and is a mystical explorer.
They also have a path connected to this superpower, which describes your child’s special and unique gifts and greatness. The paths with Extrasensory Perception are Balance, Mystic and Warrior.
Knowing this, contributes to understanding your child at a deep level, and helps you to become the best parent you can be. A parent who provides a happy, loving and nurturing environment.
