Find Help: Linda Answers Questions from Her Clients
One of the best ways to learn is to learn from each other. Take a look at some of Linda’s clients’ important questions and her Metaphysically Speaking answers. Maybe they can help you, too!
My 5-year-old daughter has imaginary playmates. There are one or two that she claims are with her all the time, while others come and visit “sometimes.” My former husband has told me to forget it since most children pretend they have unseen friends and there is nothing to worry about. My other has said that it’s probably her guardian angel.
This whole thing is driving me crazy and it is very embarrassing because my daughter is telling my new boyfriend all about her “friends” and I don’t want him to think there is anything wrong with her – or me. What should I do?

Do stop worrying, do forget it – do not go crazy or be embarrassed. While many children do actually create their own targets of conversation out of boredom, it is my feeling here that your child does have some little pals in the astral world who have made themselves known to her. Just because you cannot see or hear something does not mean that it does not exist! Remember, most of the universal experiences are “unseen.”
We use the term metaphysics to describe the science/philosophy of the unseen or the true nature which underlies the familiar world. Your daughter’s behavior is perfectly normal. She has just come over from the astral world and her senses are still keen – and so it is with all children, as well as those of us who have maintained and developed our psychic abilities.
Please do not confuse your daughter by telling her that she is not experiencing something when she knows that she is. This is a terrible thing that many parents unwittingly do to their children because they do not understand the true nature of the situation. Just leave her be, and as she grows older and makes friends of her own on this side, the astral playmates will probably go their own way.
It would be interesting to casually ask her one day if she sees colors around people sometimes. I am referring to a person’s aura (or soul energy which can be electrically traced). Very often, we find that children who can visit with astral playmates can also see auras very clearly. If your daughter can do this, and I have the feeling that she can, you have a very special child there. If she is not discouraged, she will be able to develop these talents to assist her throughout her life.
By the way, if your new boyfriend is very uncomfortable with this situation, either avoid discussions along these lines or reconsider the possibility of a continued relationship. There are some people who, because of a true lack of understanding about psychic phenomena, are very uneasy around people with active psychic abilities. As the situation develops and when the timing is right, talk to him. With a bit of understanding on everyone’s part and a relaxed attitude, things should work themselves out nicely.
