why do grown ups never see angels like they did when they were children?

I'm just remembering seeing some, and thinking that it was only for me because I knew when I grew up they would leave.

  • This is an excellent question. I have watched so many parents treat their kids like adults and expect them to act like adults at a very young age. I have often wondered why. I mean they were a child once and probably acted like a child at some time. Why can't they let their kids be kids and not be so hard on them?

  • Because when you're a child, there is a thinner line between the astral word & our world. We come from the astral world & as we grow, we kind of shake off the connection we have to that other realm. We grow out of it so to speak as we become more attached to this physical world.

  • I think it's because of the childhood innocence at that young age. They are also more open minded than we are, which seems to change when we all grow up. Their state of awareness is much better. I like to think of it as guardian angels.

  • I think that the reason why we as adults no longer see angels now as when we were a kid is because our innocence is gone. Children are more able to see angels and even appreicate them more because they're still innocent and have open hearts and minds. The world hasn't contaminated them.

  • Because you never really saw them as a kid.

  • Because children believe what their eyes tell them and adults rationalize what they see with what they think it should be.
