I started Reading kids' energy a few years ago, and found that many children diagnosed with ADD, ADHD or mild Autism, were actually intuitively and spiritually gifted...what?
As an "intuitive practitioner" and a medium, I articulate patterns of belief and behavior which form the basis of challenges, and realign energy to bring peace and clarity. In addition to being a medium and intuitive, I also have 25 years experience consulting with corporate leaders on change, and have taught Leadership and Transformation at top Universities. And, boy, do we need some leadership and change now!
The National Association of Gifted Children and Supporting the Emotional Needs of Gifted Children report that gifted children are being misdiagnosed and given prescription drugs which inhibit their ability to function and develop their gifts. In my work, it is clear that young people who are intuitive, psychic, and/or spiritually gifted also demonstrate symptoms listed under "learning disorders." Sometimes they are "acting out" based on their abilities to see, hear, or sense people's thoughts or feelings, the future, or who will die next - just to name a few intuitive gifts.
Intuition is a normal brain and spiritual development. Don't you feel that way - intuitively? Some people are more intuitively gifted than others. What if we explore and learn more about giftedness and non-drug options in nutrition, environment, and education, rather than risk our children's future on unknown side effects of psychotropic drugs?
I have lots of compassion for parents who choose medication - many of whom feel few other options - and have seen positive behavior results. 2.5 million children are prescribed psychotropic drugs for ADHD alone, and that a "small percentage, 1.8%" have died from cardiac arrest as a side effect.
If my math serves me, that "small percentage" equals 45,000 children diagnosed with ADHD alone dying from cardiac arrest as a side effect of psychotropic drugs.
The Swine Flu was declared an epidemic, and there have been 30,000 cases globally and 145 deaths. Where is the worldwide outcry about sudden death side effect for among children begin prescribed drugs whose long term impacts are unknown and which have not been tested in children or approved by the FDA for use in children, according to The National Institute of Mental Health?
If these drugs are the best strategy we can come up with when we use our logical and analytical minds to solve behavior problems, why don't we try using our common sense, intuition, and creativity for finding other ways to support learning and development in these children?
When it comes to intuitive intelligence, Folks, it's time to move from paranormal to pretty normal and employ our intuition to address the most important global challenges - our kids, our future.
