Most children have the ability to see beyond physical reality, especially in infancy. It all goes to conscious awareness at different ages and stages of development.
It's interesting to watch an infant's eyes as they follow something/
Young children often have imaginary play friends, especially when there is no one around to physically play with. These 'imaginary friends' actually communicate with the child. Generally the imaginary friend/friends are harmless and the interaction ends as they child's physical consciousness slows down and gradually creates a pattern of returning to the physical body and staying at a lower level of frequency in order to function/
If the young child, generally below the age of 5, is having fun with the imaginary friend they are attracting, then things are positive. If the child is apprehensive or displays fear, professional help may be needed for the child.
Imaginary friends can also be animals
with whom a child communicates telepathically.
Children generally love animals as the frequency of animals is generally not about 3D dramas, but about love and compassion. Pets can enhance positive emotions in children, especially at age 12-14, at puberty when anger rages and children lash out. Many children in this age group say they want to grow up and be veterinarians. Pets often bring, or teach children about, unconditional love no matter what the circumstances. They can be a survival mechanism for an emotionally challenged child.
At the end of the day ... don't many people have imagery friend they talk to, who go by different names ... God, Ascended Masters, Spirit Guides, Angels, other?
