Kids Who See Ghosts–A Medium’s Perspective

kids who see ghostsGhost Story:

“My daughter told me that she saw a short bald man standing in the corner of her room and that he was friendly. Later she told me that there was another tall man with a stick who hit a girl and it scared her. Is this all real?”

The question came from a listener on Newfoundland’s K-Rock radio show and is a common question I get asked.

Can kids see ghosts?

First, I’d like to change the wording. Ghosts conjure up images of good and evil. Movies like Poltergeist and the terrifying scene in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark don’t do much to help with that (although I loved both movies)!

I prefer the term spirit. So, can children sense spirits?

The answer is yes and here is why: young children don’t have the limitations of life and belief systems installed fully. They haven’t been “taught” that “ghosts don’t exist” so that limitation isn’t there.

Our deceased loved ones are most certainly watching over us and I’m absolutely convinced beyond a doubt that they exploit this “opening” to visit young children in particular. After all, young children are new life and it brings joy to spirit they are embarking on a life journey.

Who Are These Spirits?

The spirits will most often be deceased relatives and much of the time they will be grandparents coming through, although not always. When my daughter was quite young, she described both my father and my mother to an absolute ‘t’. Not descriptions of dress, as she knew what they had looked like in photos, but stuff she couldn’t have naturally known, such as mannerisms and behaviors.

Can They Be Frightening?

The short answer is yes, although they don’t mean to scare or frighten. At least, not intentionally. IF you have a child that is frightened, you can calm them by letting him/her know they are friendly and that they have the power to tell them to stop doing what frightens them.

Can We Banish The Spirits?

Absolutely! But that would be very sad, as their intent is only love and encouragement.

How Can I Tell The Difference Between Spirits And Imaginary Friends

Most kids have imaginary friends, particularly under five years old. I’m not a psychologist, but I did speak to one who informed me that imaginary friends at that age is completely normal and to be expected.

So, what’s the difference? Well, imaginary friends tend to be flexible to a situation. When you ask you child about details they’ll often pause as they create answers. Frankly, it is quite adorable at times and fun to experience.

But a spirit, like a real person, won’t be flexible and the answers will be quite forthcoming. They’ll often be able to describe them with terrific accuracy and details without hesitation. As in “the man was standing THERE and was wearing X, Y, and Z.”

Yes, Blair, But What If I’m Scared?

Well, there’s nothing to be afraid of, really. In my case, my Mom passed several years before my daughter was born. She had several grandsons, but no granddaughters. She would have loved to have been around for that but it wasn’t meant to be. It tickled me pink knowing that death didn’t stop her. It brought me comfort knowing that she would visit my daughter.

Be careful that you don’t pass YOUR fears along to them. Embrace it, as I have experienced many clients who have had messages brought forth through youngsters from the deceased that have been extremely helpful!

A Child Brings A Welcome Spirit Message

Nancy, a client of mine recently told me her brother’s dog had had to be put down due to illness. A brown labrador retriever that was a best buddy to her daughter Lissa. Naturally, the family was quite devastated by the loss.

One morning her daughter came bouncing into the kitchen and informed her, “Mom, Buster is happy now.”

Nancy was busy, smiled at Lissa and both went on about the day.

Later, Nancy was struck by the complete change in attitude in Lissa from utter sadness to being completely okay with it all.

She sat down and chatted with her daughter to discover that her daughter had seen Grandpa the night previous in her room and Buster was with him, happy as can be–no longer in pain or suffering and, she reported getting spoiled by Grandpa!

Embrace these wonderful connections! Got a story to share from your childhood or experience as a parent/grandparent? Share it below! I’d love to hear it, and I’m sure others would too!

  1. My son sees spirits, angels & other “beings of light” all the time since he was little. I have photographed him & captured these spirits in many photos. He is also able to describe them in great detail. Blessings!

    • I’m not sure but my granddaughter says she sees my Little Kitty, friend David, and my grandmother sometimes and one night all 3 at the same time. We’re not sure what to say or what to ask her to know if she is seeing them or if it’s just because we talk about them. How do we handle it? She’s 6.

    • My 13 year old daughter has been in a uproar for about 3 month now she said a tall man with a stick keeps coming to her telling her he is going to kill her also she see a lady who sits in the corner an just rocks back an forth she is scared of the tall man.. because he yelling at the two of them.she shaking crying she tell me that when she pray it goes away but he tells her that he will be back for her she said mama he doesn’t like you.. please help me with her..

      • My daughter’s 7 and had a flu and fever (around 102) lying on her bed. Mid-day when my wife was on the hallway (across my daughter’s bedroom) sorting the dirty clothes for laundry, my daughter asked her to go with her on the bathroom to pee. My daughter started telling her that she see people on her room yelling to her mom to “hurry up”. While my daughter was telling it to her mom, they started telling her to shut-up and not tell it. She said that they were many (around 5male and 5 female and they were aound her room and even underneath her bed). Im not sure if she’s hallucinating as what convinced me she’s seeing this is when she told my wife that someone is telling her to “shut-up” and not to tell. May I know what did you do and say to your daughter after that? Any advise that you received how to handle it?

      • Another psychic aid to sprinkle salt around the outside perimeter of your house to make them leave. Did this for my granddaughter and the bad ones left, good ones stayed. Also can ask if they are from the light. If they aren’t, they will disappear. These worked. My granddaughter began seeing many spirits at 8 years old and some were too much for her to deal with.

    • I have talked to spirits ever since I was four and the last spirit I have seen is my cousin when I was 13 which I’m 13 now. I can’t see them anymore but I can feel them. Why is that?

      • Hello…. You have shut your senses of due to what we call the real world. The spiritual world is seen by the third eye. The only reason why you still sense them is because you know they are there. You don’t see them because your at an age when relationships with the opposite sex come into question and hormones come into play and this can make you lack attention in real world. Did any grades drop? Anyway, I’ve been able to see them my entire life. I went through a period of being told they did not exist and it was shut off for me. After growing up and coming to my own conclusions I have re opened my third eye. Do you ever wonder why allot of us don’t remember anything before 5 or 4 except a spirit guide or something that is the complete opposite. When you get back to seeing them, well if you do be careful. I have been harmed. When you overcome what your going through you don’t want to stare at what you see all night. The longer you stare the better you will see them and then your stuck seing them that good for the rest of your life. You don’t know how many problems that could cause. I suggest that you understand that God is real since you see spirits. If it ever gets bad pick up the Bible and read from it and no matter whats Infront of you from the spiritual world it will go away.

  2. I lost my father three weeks ago. I’m having such a rough time. I was with him when he passed. I just feel like there was more I could have done. I need to know he is at peace.

    • I lost my husband 4 years ago, he died in my arms, I tried CPR but there was nothing I could have done to prevent his death. I put myself through the mill all this time, blaming myself for not preventing his death. I blamed myself because my CPR was ineffective and I didn’t think to give him his Nitro-glycerine pill. I was consumed with guilt and deliberately kept everything that would give me pleasure away from myself. I destroyed many of the things I loved because I believed that I didn’t deserve anything that I enjoyed. I have finally come to realize that my husband doesn’t blame me, he still loves me. He is in a far better place that I am in, he’s in spirit, close to God. I was hurting him by not letting go, I was clinging to my blame and grief, he wouldn’t be able to move on to do the things he needed to do. I had to let go, for his good as well as mine., It wasn’t easy but I’ve finally managed to let go, I feel so much better and I know I’m doing the right thing for him as well.
      Just know that your father is free now. Free of that cumbersome body, free of time, free of needs and wants. He loves you and is around you. He hears you when you talk with him. Best of all, he is happy! Keep this in mind, and let yourself heal. He doesn’t want you to suffer and feel guilty, there is nothing you could have done to prevent his passing. It was his time. One day you will be with him but until then, live your life with joy. He would want that for you.

  3. I am a Psychic/Intuitive and come from a long line of them ….I have a Granddaughter that was born on May 23, 2014 (she is barely 2 weeks old) and her mother has told me (she is a sensitive, also) that 3 spirits tried to go through her back to get to the baby as she was nursing her. I had told my Daughter-in–law that Karolyn (the baby) was going to be a psychic ‘powerhouse’ . I went in and cleared the house and covered everyone, including the house, with White Light, and I do this every night for them. I guess my comment is: Why am I unable to tell who these spirits are? They did not seem malicious to me, but very pushy, so to me…they could not have been family… Do you have any thoughts (not a reading) perhaps just a prior experience with this and if so. how do I deal with it, other than what I have already done. Thank you in advance for your consideration ….also I always love your blogs; always very helpful. ~ Love and Light ~ Kellie

    • Hi Kellie, my sis is psychic and she also has them pushing at her back to try to get in. Babies are completely protected by angels but you can ask Archangel Michael to protect babe at all times anyway. Put a bubble of white light around her. Does her Mom do any channeling because my sis does and I think that is what is happening but as long as her boundaries are up they can’t get in, they need to be invited. Not really positive but I think it’s more for her than the baby. God Bless!

  4. I am positive that my grand daughter has been visited by her deceased grandmother since coming home from the hospital.She is not afraid and will point to her picture when asked, or somewhere in the room. She is 19 months old and will point and say Bobbie randomly. I believe that children as well as adults can see spirits. I am an aging child and I see spirits of loved ones often.

  5. My father just recently passed away and since before he passed, during his illness, my 5 year old nephew has always said “Tata is going to be okay!” One night, dad was not feeling good at all and we thought we were losing him that day so we were all crying then my nephew walks in and says “what’s wrong? Tata is sick?” So someone responded with a “yes” and very calm he says “don’t worry…he’s going to be fine!” And ran off. Fast forward a few months later after Dad passed away my nephew calls my Mom and says to her “I was asking Tata how I could make my day at school go by faster and he said to quit complaining, so I did then mommy picked me up” we were all pretty shocked, it totally sounds like something Dad would say. My nephew hasn’t been afraid once I anything related to Dads passing. I swear that he is able to communicate with him in ways that none if us can’t. I’m grateful for that.

  6. I have a 3 year old (step) grandson that continually says he talks to Grandpa Bob (my husband). They never met. Bob died in 2007. We always comment how much fun the two of them would have had together. They are not blood related, but could this be true?

  7. Blaire I have a question if I may we have been having some things going on in my moms home where I stay and take care of her she is 85 and I have been with her 3 years now . we hear foot steps sounds of cabinets closing and our Tv in the living room comes on and goes off by it’s self . also I have had a blanket pulled off of me my body feels like it’s on fire at times I am not the only one in our family that is aware of these things others have witnessed as well what can we do it does not feel friendly at all. need answers please help

  8. My ex husband, father of my six children, died on May 13th after a fall. The night he died, before anyone knew he had crossed, my three year old granddaughter who lives in another state, woke my daughter up during the night whining and saying “Mommy turn off that light. I can’t sleep. Mommy that light is too bright!!” There was no light in the room. My daughter didn’t see any light but the baby insisted that it was too bright in the room for her to sleep. I’m sure her grandpa Dave had stopped by for one last hug on his way through.

  9. My son has asked ‘who’s that guy’ Since he could talk and since we moved into a new place he had said he sees two guys and he’s also seen a ton of ‘babies’ kitty babies I’m assuming as he’d bend down to pet and play with them, I’ve had alot of kittys thru my life and my mother was passed on since 89 and my father passed 18 days before my son was born I have a feeling both of these ‘guys’ is my mom & dad as he really didn’t understand the difference between male & females at the time and well my mom was tall and had broad features lol one time he said he had two mommys and I said oh, where’s the other mommy? He said back home.. I grew up in the same house since my birth and had to move out shortly after my father’s death so I can only assume ‘back home’ would be my childhood home

  10. All my grandkids, all 13, are scared of my second floor, they all say it’s haunted. My 10 year old grandson, in particular, is afraid to go up there. He told me there was a man there named Bill and he was mean. At one time a man by the name of Bill owned my house, nearly 100 years ago. To help my grandson relax and be able to sleep, without me, I told him that ghosts don’t like the smell of sage. So now we burn sage when my grandson is ready to go to sleep, it helps and we all sleep well.

  11. My Gr-Grandaughter Danni, named after her Uncle Danny who pass 8yrs ago from C.F., is always telling me that she has talked to her Uncle Danny all the time. Danny also tickled my left ear when he is around. Danni is almost 4 and I hope she never loses her connection to her Uncle.

    • Hi Louise: I had to giggle at your comment about Danny tickling your ear. It really touched me (no pun intended) because my father does exactly the same thing! For instance, I took my granddaughter to a football game in our home town a couple of years ago. My father had loved that team and had taken me to many games when I was younger. The tickling began in the car even before we got there and really kicked into high gear at points during the game. This had happened before so I knew without a doubt that he was enjoying the game with us.

  12. I read your article and I absolutely agree. I have been really sensitive in noticing when spirits are around. I’ve become a single mom of two young boys and we moved into a house that has four apartments. After awhile I started feeling that we weren’t alone. Then I started seeing orbs in my livingroom. My dad had passed 9 years ago and every now and then when I’m really sad & stressed I get the smell of fresh coffee or the smell of cigarettes in the wee hours of the morning. My boys have also experienced things like the feeling someone has touched their heads, seeing figures tall and small. One day I decided to contact a local paranormal team. They came did their testing. What they found was unbelievable to me. A dog barking was picked up in my room. I knew that bark anywhere it was my dog who was put to sleep a few months prior. They also picked up roughly 30 yes 30 spirits. When asked how many spirits were with us one came thru saying 30. They did a cleansing of sage just in case there was any negative energy’s here.

  13. My grandson is 3.5 years old. His mom and him moved into an old home in november. He see’s spirits in this house and decribes them to me and his mother all the time. There are two of them a older man and women. But he says the scare him. they growl at him, and make mean faces. He wont sleep in his room any more. He has woke up with scratches on him as well. I have had the house cleared. But it is still happening. I feel so sorry for him . I’ve told him just to tell them to go away, but he is to young to understand why they are bothering him. I myself am very intuitive, ive asked them to leave and go to the light, saged and sprayed holy water. But they are still there. I dont know what else to do.

  14. It was Christmas Eve, I was a very young child say 5 or 6. At my parents house, the family had celebrated the holiday and the children were sent to bed. I remember looking out the bedroom door to the hallway and a figure walked by. At first I thought it was my Grandmother who was staying with us for the holidays, but when I looked at the face, the figure had to hallowed out eyes and they looked in my direction while walking down the hall.
    Now that I am older, and have had several paranormal experiences, I believe it was my Grandfather who had been deceased for only a short time.

  15. Having written about the paranormal for many years, I too much prefer the term ‘spirits’ because that is what they are – the human entities that is. Yes, children are more open and you’re right on with the reasons why. Both of my older grandchildren saw spirits when they were young. However, their parents seriously downplayed these ‘events.’ Since they knew I was more open on this subject, they took me aside and talked openly with me about what they had seen. My granddaughter had seen a man, woman and two children, whom I later learned through property records, were former owners of the house. My grandson had seen them too, as well as spirits outside and at school. He also saw angels. Due to all of that, he was afraid to sleep at night and actually pulled the covers over his head for quite some time. I tried to calm his fears by letting him know that the spirits were once people just like us and explained the many reasons why they might have chosen to linger here. I also let him know that angels might appear frightening and powerful, they were there to protect him.
    Both of my grandchildren are now teenagers and happily, still open to such things despite their parent’s attitude, which was to squash it right away so they would not be afraid. As you know, that just makes things worse in many cases. My grandson, who saw the most, recently asked if he could read one of my books about spirits and I was very happy to give him a copy.

  16. Hi Blair….Your are an inspiration to many. My daughter Ida has seen spirits in my bedroom a few she said its a little girl with long black hair and a white dress and has her head down. She has experienced this twice. She also, hears people whisper her name in her ear from time to time or she feels someone following her up the stairs. She is 16 years old, she is not freaked out by this at all and embraces it. I was just wondering Blair, is this her spirit guide trying to tell her something? She actually senses things all the time. Brief story, last year during summer break she’d stay home and do nothing like most teenagers 🙂 but the one morning on July 30/2013 at 6:00 am she woke up and said mom can I go spend the day with grandpa and of course, I brought her because her connection with my dad is amazing she loves him more then life. Well, that day he went into CARDIAC ARREST in front of her and called 911 within minutes they were at my dads house, he wasn’t breathing so they had to use the difibulator. Needles to say that he survived and the DOCTORS/SPECIALIST told her that she saved his life that day. Also, for some reason when my dad was on lifesupport for a few weeks, she would say mom don’t worry grandpa will be fine trust me. Just wanted to share my story and thank you BLAIR for all you do.

    • Hi Blair, I am 83 years old and my daughter (57) died 3 years ago under a very stress circumstances with her boyfriend and me, as I was not aloud to call her, though I did every day but no answer or allowed to call me. Could not allowed to see her, so even though my daughter and I were very, very close the end was.horrendous for me as I am sure for her. She died and I was called later about her death and was not allowed to be at her service if there was one. My son died in a tragic accident at age 27 and all I had for family was my daughter and my mom and she passed away leaving me all alone. I have to know through my daughter spirit why did this happened. I can’t sleep just trying to know why she let this happen. I can’t afford you as my Medium but if you can see her, and if you can communicate with her, please, please tell me. Her name Sherian Bertsche, I just list my mother at age 104 and I want to know if they are together. The above situation happened also with my mom who lived with me until her death. She died peacefully and beautifully. Please email me @ carmen.bowman@ sbcglobal.net. PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I NEED TO KNOW. THANK YOU!!!

  17. My father passed away in 2004. My grandson is 3 years old. My daughter has a charcoal picture drawn of him during the war, hanging on the wall. I was showing my grandson the picture of my father. He said he saw him in his room, and he gave him a kiss on his cheek, and that he is very nice. He wasn’t afraid, and in fact very happy about the whole incident, as well as I was. I was with my father every day till he passed. He promised me if he could come back he would, and we even have a code word to know it was him. I’m so happy he came to my grandson, and to know he is around!

  18. Namaste Blair,

    I am just going to make a long story short….

    I have seen spirits far back as I can remember..I also knew that my mother was going to die and for a whole week, all I did was cry. My mother also had the gift. She also knew something was going to happened to her and that is why she argue with my father about getting life insurance. So he did and my mother died a tragic death. I was 6 yrs old and there was this entity who was a girl, she had long red hair and she wore a blue dress. She would be there to comfort me, her name is Rita. My grandmother who had to come to help dad, she would see how I was talking to what she seemed to think a “imaginary” friend. But Rita was real to me. I have always seen spirits around our home and at nights, I would hear pots and pan moving in the kitchen and I knew that it was my mother.

    Love and Light….Cayce

  19. My father passed in 2004. Before my Dad passed he promised me that if he could come back he would. We even have a code word only known to him and I, so I would know it was him. My grandsons are 5 and 3. I love both my grandsons, but I have a special bond with the 3 year old. My daughter has a charcoal picture of my father, that was done during the war while he was stationed in England. My 3 year old grandson asked me one night who that was, and I explained that he is your great grandpa. He interrupted me with “He was in my room, and he gave me a kiss on my check, and he is very, very nice.” i explained that he had passed on and was in heaven, and that he was most likely dreaming, He got very mad, and insisted that he was in his room. Do I believe him? Yes, even though my grandson has never told me the code word, it wouldn’t be in his vocabulary anyhow, I am comforted in knowing my father, who I miss deeply, has chosen my little “mini-me” to visit.

  20. When I was 10 I saw my grandfather. It was a couple of weeks after he had passed and he came and said goodbye. He had a lady with him. I had never seen her before. Once I described her to my family I was told she was his first wife that had passed away over 30 years prior.

  21. My 2 year old grandson was so sensitive when he was born we had to put sage in the house to help him out. He wasn’t able to tell them to slow down or leave him alone. As he is growing his is getting better and doesn’t seemed so bothered.

  22. I just need to send you a big THANK YOU for all you do for all of us. I stayed up (it’s 2AM here) to view some of the email messages I have piled up, and have spent hours listening to you. Thank you for all you do.
    PS. Is there any chance you may come to NY?
    Namaste

  23. My mother was from England. During the Vietnam war time my dad(in US Air Force) was stationed in England, met mmy mom married her, and brought her to the States. I never met any of mom’s relatives, nor did I ever get to talk to them on the phone as I was very little. My parents both passed when I was only 13, but my memories are as if it was only a year ago. Mom loved telling her friends( I later found out) about her father(also long deceased), and the conversations I had with him as a little girl. She would say that I would tell her stories about her growing up in England,that Pappy(my grandpa) would only know!! I described her to a T, and knew Pappy’s knick name for her. I told her about when she accidently caught on fire by the fireplace during WW2. She said I would sit with her a long time( whatever that is for a energetic 3 year old) and tell her thing even she had forgotten about!! For her it was magical, to know her beloved dad was seeing his grand daughter, that I could see him, and that he was still very much “alive”. I do have memories of my “Pappy”, and also talking to others no one else seemed to be able to see. I’m just glad I was able to make my mom happy, cause she missed her family so. I have a baby grand daughter now, I’m excited to see if she will be able to see and speak to my mom and dad!!!. Sending much Light and Love Always.

  24. My 2 year old daughter started saying she saw a gohst last night and I blew it off thinking it was just her imagination but earlier to day she sat on my mother s good friends lap staring out the window when my mothers friend asked why was she looking at she said the gohst … I again blew it off but my mother asked her what the gohst was doing she said he going home and when asked where is his home she said home here him home …. She started trembling and said he’s cold mommy he is cold. I had not said any thing to my daughter yet and I went along by saying oh Yea. Why? She simply replied his boo boos hurt . I asked her where his booboo was and she said his belly mommy he says his belly hurts . when I asked her to tell me why she said she dono and that he was gonna go fishing and wants me feed the ducks with him … Now about six years before my father had passed away I was about six and had told my mother that she wasn’t gonna let my daddy go we then found out the fallowing day he was put in to a medicly indoused coma that he wouldn’t wake from every day I spoke to my father about my day and how I missed him and wanted to see him again. Hours before I was going to fly down to my father in the hospital I was crying on the phone with him singing you are my sun shine during the second verse the phone made a loud snaking noise in my ear and went dead I was terrified I had lost him but several hours later my step mother called me to tell me he was awake and had woken up whail on the phone with him my father told me that he was fishing with his mother and heard me crying and begging him to get well and he knew he couldn’t go yet … My father then passed away from hepitice c and serousis of the liver he chose to pass in his home I spent my last few months with my father the night he died he sat up out of his bed and said mom can we go fisshin and feed the ducks and began making the jesture to toss bread at ducks … My father died in 2009 I had my daughter in 2012 and my son in December of 2014 my son is only two months old….. And I recently moved back in to my mothers home. This is my first experience with these things … When I showed my little girl a photo of my dad she said gohst and pointed to the picture and giggled abd said he help mommy he help me he pick up brother and give hugs his hugs cold ….. She has never done this before . I am scared if I should cleanse my house just incase it is an evil spirit acting as my father to get to my baby’s or if my father has come to see my baby’s because he always wanted a grand son

  25. When my son was 7 yrs old, about a year after the sudden death of my daughter (his best friend), we were both laying in my bed at 6am. He was staring at the ceiling, in the corner. He said, “Mom, our house is full!” We were in a small condo and had just bought new furniture, to furnish the house we were waiting to close on. I told him, because I thought he meant that we had TOO much furniture, that our condo was full of furniture for the new house. He pointed to the ceiling and said, ” You don’t see them?” Then I knew. He told me that his sister, my mom, my dad, grandparents were all here. I asked him how this made him feel. He told me he felt safe because they were here to watch over us. At that very moment I heard a Distinct loud whisper in my left ear saying, “Mom.” I turned to my son and said, “Yes?” He told me he didn’t say a word. We both just looked at each other and said my daughter’s name at the same time. It was a beautiful moment. Love and Peace

  26. My Grand daughter Goes up to the picture of my son (her uncle) and will blow kisses to him. She is only 3 but she tells us that he is in her closet. She refers to him as a “monster”. I only know that she wakes up after being asleep for about an hour crying and wants to be with her mommy and refuses to go in her room again alone. We have had to keep her tv on but sometimes that does not help. Lately she has been talking about another spirit in addition to the one in her closet that she says is all pink. She points to one corner of her room and says scary monster. I do believe she is seeing spirits.

  27. When my daughter was 4,we were watching tv, she got up and walk to the hallway and started speaking spanish, she could hardly talk english yet, when she was finish, she came back and lie beside me, her father ask her who she was talking to, she said an old man, he said he was going away, about 2 minutes after the phone rang and my mother in law told us her father had just pass away.

  28. My granddaughter started seeing my grandmother when she was about 2. She had never seen her before and kept saying she talked with grandma MacDonald. She was to young to even realize that was my last name. She tell me she lived far far away. Was very cool cause I’ve always felt her around me . She had never even met my granddaughters moma she wasn’t born till 4 yrs later. But one day she saw a picture of my grandmother and grandpa and there dog in picture. That’s how I knew it was her. She’s was almost 3 by then that’s when she told me that’s who comes to see her. So awesome!

  29. My granddaughter has really been talking about seeing dead people. Said they are in her closet. While riding in the car with her mom, she started yelling there was a man kneeling down, and told what kind of clothes he had on and he was bleeding, and he got dead, her word.. Of course there was nothing where she was pointing. She still tells this story and its always the same. She is three years old. I always encourage her to talk about this and the other grandmother, who is scared of her shadow, tells her ghost do not exist. So she is so confused. I really don’t know how to help her. She will just come out with stuff. She told her mom that grandpa came to see her and when shown a family picture picked him out.( He has been dead long before she came to us)
    We thought this was awesome. So children can communicate with their innocence.

  30. I believe my son (who is now 20) when he was 2 we were staying with my grandmother while our home was being built. My son, would go into the back room and say he was going to play with the “green ghost”. He was never afraid. When we moved into our new home, he was looking out the window and saying “Nonno, look at the bunny”. When I asked who he was talking with he just looked surprised and said no one. My grandfather spoke with a broken Italian accent and my son sounded like him on several words. I was very close to my grandfather, and he passed before my son was born. Everyone thinks I am crazy when I tell this story.

  31. Unfortunately, when I was younger, I was never one of those children who are lucky to be able to sense or see spirits. Even I would freak out from just a glimpse of a ‘ghost’. But so to say every one of us has had an experience even with the paranormal or spirits. So back in my childhood country, I was always the kid who was carefree and open, even I would play with imaginary friends (sorry no spirit interaction, just imaginations). It was during the time of the fresh age of 3 or 4 (when I could speak loud and clear) when strange things began to happen. I lived with both my parents, grandpa and two housemaids. (Lol ‘m not rich but in this country it was safe to assume to have housemaids to look after your children when you have to work for a living). Both my parents were unexpectedly working overnight so I was left with my grandpa and two housemaids. It was bedtime and I would often sleep in my parents room. As I got to prepare for bedtime and shift my sleeping position before closing my eyes, I suddenly felt a presence behind me in the big bed I was sleeping on. I shook it off and just fiddled with my hair waiting for my eyes to droop to sleep.

    A few minutes passed and I still felt a presence next to me until what felt like someone tapping on my shoulder. I freaked out but then remained calm and turned to see no on there. I still remember to this day and to me at that time it strikes as odd. So yes, children with the ability to see spirits are lucky while some react differently.

  32. Hi. My granddaughter is now 5 yrs old and forever telling me she sees sparkly dust and white hair.she also says two angels talk to her good and bad but she only listens to the good one.she is very inteligent and just seems to know everything, sometimes without being taught. When she was just under 3 yrs old and sat in the back of my car, she said to me…. grandma do you know when I lived in heaven with my other mummy and daddy before they sent me here. Honestly I nearly crashed the car. After asking her more questions she said they were called sarah and john???? I don’t know a sarah and john!!! She went on to say sarah had silky hair and lovely skin and she misses them sometimes, but they told her she was going to another mummy and daddy. She wasn’t even at nursery school when she told me this. Is she psychic?

  33. Ones when I was about five me and my dad were laying on the couch in the living room with each other his head was on one side on the couch my head was on the other I couldn’t sleep because I was afraid thinking about the goosebump books at one point I went under the blanket out of fear when I looked out from under the blanket I seen this thing completely engulfed in flames it had big blue eyes as I screamed too the top of my loungs it slowly evaporated away what do you think this was about my fear are was it something else?

  34. My fiancee and I had our first child 2 months ago a baby girl named Lylah. His mother passed away 2 years ago before I could ever meet her. Ever since my daughter was born things would happen. While I was giving birth a nurse named Melissa came in to help coincidentally that is my fiancees mothers name. After we brought her home she always looked to were we have Melissa’s picture. However our daughter has also been “moving” at night. I use quotations because our daughter doesn’t roll yet and we wake up into the middle of the night and Lylah is on the opposite side of her play pen on top of the blanket. Last night however we were watching a movie in the living room while our daughter slept on our bed when we heard her cough. When we come to the room to check on her she was in a completely different spot with a blanket in her. I’m not to scared but I feel uneasy simply because I know she doesn’t move like that on her own. Could it be that her grandmother Melissa is holding her at night?

  35. I used to speak with spirits when I was little and on up into my early pre-teen years. I met a gentlemen who stayed by my side and showed me the scene of his death and how it happened. Before he came to me, everyone thought he died of suicide, including my mom and siblings from her previous marriage. The gentlemen in question was their dad, her ex-husband. During all of this, the woman my mom’s ex-husband cheated on her with while he was alive, was terminally ill and on her death bed. Well, right before she passed, this gentlemen smiled at me and told me his time was coming and that he enjoyed my company. Days later, this woman passed away and he was gone. I never heard from him again. I told my mom everything and to this day we both know, especially me, what really happened and who killed him. Everyone else still knows it as suicide.

    My son, aged 7, has the same ability I did when I was little. My Peppy (grandmother and best friend) visits him often and he tells me of their talks. He has also had the honor of meeting Baby Isabella, the baby my brother and his wife had stillborn 2 months before I had my daughter. He tells me off the nice spirits, yet is frightened to sleep in his room. Looking back now, all the conversations he started about spirits, angels, Heaven, etc…. all make sense now, now that I know he has my ability that I had when I was little.

    I hate that I have lost my ability, or I just haven’t been paying attention, as I have been too busy working or too exhausted to notice, but I am glad my son is able to do so. Maybe if I clear my heart and mind, my loved ones will come back and talk to me as they used to.

  36. I have a 3 1/2 year old granddaughter who talks all the time about other lives she lived. One was a co-pilot( exact words) Even as to go as far as tell of dying by being kicked by a horse in the head. Now with a new sibling coming anyday, she is talking all the time and no one is in the room. If you ask her she will say “I am talking to the man or talking to the girl”. I think it is wonderful myself to have a gift of connection with lives of past, present and future. The subject spooks my daughter and my son in law just dismisses it.

  37. My son is 3 years old. He came to me and said he seen a mommy and two baby’s and a daddy above the trees. I asked some questions. He said they were fishing and happy. But my son don’t know the loved ones that died before he was born. Does this mean something bad is going to happen to my son or one of us????

  38. My daughter is 4 now but since 2 years old my daughter has been playing with her imaginary friends she calls them Neighbor. She explains that they are a man and a woman they live in heaven and they come out of the hole in the sky to play with her and tell her they love her. But other times she wakes up very scared in the middle of the night and says Neighbor hit her and that is so scary for me, because she is crying hysterically when i tell Neighbor to go away she says no because she loves them she just wants them to say sorry and they dont. She has told my mother and friend that their mother’s said hello from heaven she also told my friend that her mother would come back as Erica. I dont understand what any of this means. Is she seeing spirits or getting messages from them? Because other time she acts like Neighbor really is an imaginary friend where she tells me he is invisible and only she can see them and like when she told my friend her mother would come back as Erica 2 seconds afterward its like she never said that I asked her is Erica a baby and she said I dont know who Erica is mommy your so silly. So I would just like you oppion on what maybe happening.

  39. I was wondering how to help my son. He says he sees people that neither my wife or i see it is hard to tell hi. It is ok. I was wondering if there is other research i could do. I used to see similar things when I was younger I was what I thought was attacked but I was told it was sleep paralysis. I am starting to think my son actually sees things because some times I get the feeling g I used to get when I saw things the feeling of a presence. At time this is before he says he sees something. I just don’t want him to live with the fear I did. His only 4 and its hard to explain to him it is ok and not be afraid. I wish I could see what he sees like I used to so I could be more helpful to him. I feel something were we live like some one is watching me and he sees what I feel. Any help would be great.

  40. My son senses people around in our new rental house … my mom passed away last year and I have experienced paranormal experiences from the door bell ringing to , knocks at the door , to someone touching my hip and sitting on my bed …what really got to me was she had passed at 244am the door bell started ringing after that …. i miss her tremendously …She always worried about me because I am raising 2 autistic kids alone. ..

  41. My daughter is 20 months old. Tonight we were in the back room in our motor home and she started pointing to the corner ceiling and saying “guy”. She was also afraid of our Dreamcatcher hanging from the ceiling . I took it down and asked her if she didn’t like it and she clinged to me super tight and was terrified. So I put it away. She was very frightened by the “guy” she kept seeing on the ceiling in the same place. And the Dreamcatcher. Do you have any idea what to make of this? I’m getting rid Of the Dreamcatcher cause it scares he sooo much. But she looked at the ceiling as if she was looking at me. What do you think of this? Thank you very much.

  43. When I was a little kid I connected with my deceased grandma and grandpa one time each. Then when I was 11 I dreamed that a neighborhood friend of mine was dead. 1 year later he died in a car accident on his way home from being with friends.I heard he was having a diabetic attack thst Ade him crash his CSR. So I am still unclear if it was the crash or from the attack of which he died from. I still wonder why god pickede to see this. He was standing in front of me smiling in my dream. In the dream I already knew he was passed due to a split second glance of a casket. And then another neighborhood friend passed away a few years later on the use road he wrecked on. This time it was a girl . She overcorre ted her CSR and hit a construction truck head on. My sister took her place at the local cinnabon in our mall a fewonths after her death. One night I called my sister thinking it was only 9 pm asking her to bring me a coke. I called and someone answered hello. The employees were not supposed to say hello while answering the phone. It was supposed to be thank you for calling cinnabon. So baffled, I asked who is this, and she said Stacey. The girl who I grew up with and worked there at the time of her death was named Stacey. I replied I’m sorry I got the wrong number .I hung up and I checked the number again and it WAS the right number. So I called back within se onds of hanging up and no answer. Come to my lack of looking at the clock it was 10:15pm of my first call. My sister pulled up seconds after the second phone call. She said she was already closed up for the night by 9:30. My friend was sitting there when I made the initial call so I know I’m not crazy.

  44. My niece is saying things that has come to my attention. My grandmother passed away 2 months before my niece was born. And the past year she has been saying names of pets that my grandma had and pets my grandma gave us that my family hasn’t had for years. The other day my mom had a picture of a German Shepherd same as what my grandma had and its name was coco. and my niece only over a year old pointed at the picture and said coco. Now today we were watching a movie and a calico cat came on and she said that’s calli. This was a name of a cat we had before I was born and I’m 19. This is starting to freak my mom out but I belive that some things are trying to communicate with us through my 2 year old niece.

  45. My granddaughter is 8 years old and my daughter told me today that she has been seeing a shadow person.
    How are we suppose to deal with that
    Help please.

  46. I have a nephew who is 4 years old. My grandpa, who would have been my nephew’s great-grandpa, died 4 months before my nephew was born. My nephew (who is my brother’s son) all live in our grandparent’s old house. My grandpa died in that house. My nephew told my mom (his grandma) that he plays with Poppy (What we called him) and my mom asked if she could play with him too and my nephew said no because he is dead. But he also will point out hats in a store that my Poppy would wear. And remember, my nephew wasn’t even born yet when Poppy died, so he has never met him. Do you think it is Poppy’s ghost there?

  48. Thankyou for the information! My son who is nine now has been seeing spirits for about five years ! Do you know what a small animal like thing is that he is seeing that the only thing that scares him bad?

  49. My grandson just told me he saw “foggy people” watching us sleep one night. When I ask him about the “foggy people” he said “they are human like me and you but don’t walk like us”. He said he only seen them the one night. He also talked a little about “shadow people” but didn’t go into details. He said he mostly only sees their face. What do you think? He just turned 5 in August.

  50. My daughter who is 8 has said since she was 2 or 3 said she sees spirits or ghosts. Each time she says she sees them I ask her how they look like, and she describes them. Each time they are a different type. Theres been a few times where its been the same one. Is there anyone I should take her to see or talk to more about this.

  51. We’ve been living with my parents for about 2 years. There has been lots of silly activity there. We are pretty sure it’s an old man that likes to just play tricks. Well one night my dad was walking down the stairs to the basement and my 3 year old tells “Alex you can’t go down there, you will fall”. My dad half way down the stairs looks back up at my son and is very confused. About 2 months later we got our own place and my 3 year old talks about and too this Alex thing everyday, he says it’s his best friend, he will tell you it’s an old man, he’s tall, he doesn’t like being around a lot of people. We have had some silly activity go on at the new place but it may just be things we do and not realize at first. But I’m just not sure if this is really some spirit or just an imaginary friend. We don’t tell him it’s wrong or it’s fake, we encourage him to talk about his friend we like to learn about him.

  52. My 6 year old granddaughter has always been able to see, talk, and connect with her grandfather. He died 3 years before she was born. She talk about him all the time and what they talk about and I think that is great. However, my granddaughter came home crying from ball practice wanting to know why her Papa Paul doesn’t come to see her anymore and she misses him. I don’t know how to explain this to her. Can you help? She was the first grandchild of ours and she was a girl. We raised 2 boys. She is definitely the apple of her grandfather’s eye.

  53. My six year old son has the ability to talk to spirits. He has told me several times that he hears his great grandparents, my mother, God, and Jesus talk to him. I am not sure what to make of this. I believe him, and at the same time, it is a bit scary for me. If he has the ability to talk to good spirits, would evil spirits try to talk to him as well?

  54. Hello, my name is Ashley. I have a 23 month old son, who for the last couple months or so has shown signs that there is another being in the room. He will suddenly point near the window in our kitchen and say “doggie” and/or “pet”.. Or he will just wave to that certain area and say hello or hi while waving quickly. Is he seeing people or pets that were special to us and are no longer with us? The window is quite a bit taller than he is since he is just about 33 inches tall or so or I’d say maybe its his reflection and we live behind a building near that window anyways so there aren’t any neighbors or animals near us. My husband and I are pretty curious and really wonder what it is that he sees. We have 2 deceased dogs as well as some family members. Thank you for any reply in advance. I look forward to speaking with you. Have a nice day. ☺

  55. I need help. My son is 11. In the last few months his attitude has changed. He is unhappy, lacking sleep, irrirable. He tells me nothing is wrong.. well the other day his little sister tells me he has seen a ghost. She is a little girl that stands in doorways. When he looks up she is just there looking at him. He won’t tell me anything else and now when I ask he says it’s no big deal, it’s nothing. I’m worried about him and I don’t know what to do. He is changing.

  56. We lost our son about 4 years ago he was 28 years old and sadly committed suicide. Our family is very close and this was devastating. We have been blessed with a new Grandson who is now 18 months old. On several occasions he points up to the ceiling and says my sons name. He also looks into mirrors and says his name. He has been doing this since about the age of 10 months. I have 3 large pictures in my house of all three of my kids and I have always told him his uncle’s name when pointing to the pictures when he was learning to talk. He is not old enough to ask where he is yet so when he randomly just points up and says his name its pretty remarkable and gives us great validation that there is life after death. I have also lost my first little girl with a heart condition and when my son was 9 years old he came flying of the steps in our house and said mommy there is a little girl in your bedroom and described her. He was white as a ghost and I said its ok maybe its Amber the little girl I lost. 19 years later my son came to stay with us when he was troubled and came down the stairs one morning before work and said your never going to believe who I saw last night. I said who did you run into and he said I saw that same little girl I saw when I was a little boy. I was shocked! I now wonder if that little girl was my daughter and if she was coming to familiarize herself with him because we lost him 6 months later.

  57. My daughter is 12. For the last 2 years she has talked about my grandmother, her great grandmother coming to her at night. She describes the visits in vivid detail and says she really enjoys her visits… at first I was not sure what to make of it, but now I think she really is experiencing something meaningful.

  58. hi my grandson is 3 1/2 years old and hes been seening a green man coming out wall he so scaried how help him my if youcan help can give any ieada

    • Shirley, my 3 yr. old grandson also sees a man, but he is a “blue” man. He has seen him a couple of times before at night time and has woke up crying and almost unconsolable to where he had to go downstairs to sleep with his mommy and Daddy to calm down. A couple of months ago after such an episode I was visiting and told him if he saw him and he was scared and didn’t want him there to tell him, “go away, I don’t want you here!”. We did not know if he dreamed him or what but he said the blue man woke him up? So, this evening my daughter texted me to say he saw the blue man again only this time we know he wasn’t sleeping. He had just had his bath and put his pajamas on then went to his room to play a bit while his Mommy rocked his baby sister to sleep in her room. He ran to tell his Mom the blue man was in his room playing with his trucks and cars. He said he told him to go away and he did, out the window! The window had not been unlocked or opened? In any case, it worked so you might tell your little one to do the same. This time he seemed to not be frightened – even a little empowered. Just 2 weeks ago he was visiting me and started talking about his Grandma & Grandpa that was at his house and he loved them very much! He calls his Paternal Grandparents PaPa and Yay Yay and he calls us – his maternal Grandparents Grammy & Gramps and his living Great Grandma GiGi! I asked him if he meant any of us and he was adamant they were Grandma & Grandpa! The year he was born both his paternal Great Grandma’s had passed before he was born and the yr. before that his Great Great Aunt who was extremely bonded to his Daddy. All Great Grandpa’s passed years earlier. Since he was born you could see orbs around him when you took photos of him and as a baby he would stare off and smile at that which no one could see. I am empathic and sensitive, as is my mother, and as was my grandmother and we believe my great grandmother. Mother has actually seen spirit, I sense them and have spirit visit visitations in my sleep but do not see them. I have always suppressed my abilities out of fear and only in recent years are becoming more comfortable with it. To my knowledge my children do not share the ability although my daughter did see a spirit once as a teen. The thought frightens her too much. Now we are thinking more and more her little son may have a gift. He has always seemed like an old soul in a baby’s body and far more verbal and imaginative than most children his age which are both good indications. I would suggest you just don’t tell your little one you don’t believe him/her. It will just frustrate a small child, and have him try telling the green man to leave or go away. Good luck.

  59. My son is autistic, and five years old. He has been waking up screaming and crying and not able to communicate what is wrong. He has always had sleeping issues in his room. Naturally, I always suspected it was related to his autism. But we have lived in this home for almost six years now. I do not believe his sleep patterns are connected to regular problems. We have had toys move by themselves, knocking on the walls, and foot steps going throughout the home. We need help. The activity has increased a lot in the last few months. My son is at the point where he only sleeps an hour or two in his room, then wakes up crying and shaking. Please help us.

  60. its nice to read all this but im kind of scared as i was picking my 4 month old baby up from the babysitter in the lobby all of the sudden he screamed from the top of his lungs and stared to side of where i was and nothing was there he cried and screamed so much i was scared..it was like if he was looking at something…

  61. I will make this pretty short and simple. We moved into the house were purchasing about 5 years ago, prior to this we rented a house in a town an hour away. At the time my oldest was 12 and she experienced something which I thought was pretty scary . She woke up crying , literately yelling and said there was a lady with white long hair and dressed in white as well standing in the entrance of her room by the door. So that was an incident, the second time we moved to the house were currently living in and it happened again, she saw the same lady in her room. So now the last time was last night, she went to my bed and stated she not only dreamed about her, but also woke up and saw her. I am not to sure how to help her . Please advice

  62. The other morning while I was in the bathroom combing my hair, my two year old was coughing while standing in her crib and I heard a voice saying “are you alright ” and it sounded like my deceased brother who passed away 3 weeks ago. There was no one else in our room.

  63. We took my son to meet his Grandma for the first time. She had passed just weeks before my husband and I got married so he has seen pictures of her and knows it is Daddy’s mommy. He’s almost 2 and just learning to talk. We took him to the cemetery where she is buried and within the first minute of being at her gravesite, he screamed and laughed and said grandma for the very first time!!!! Then he just jabbered away and stood on her head stone and said “up” and lifted his arms like he does when he wants to be picked up. I was absolutely blown away but not surprised. I know without a doubt she was there!!!

  64. I had multiple miscarriages before I was able to have my son. My son is now two and has been randomly telling me, “my sister died.” My babysitter told me he has been telling her how he plays with his sister in his room sometimes. When she corrected him and said you don’t have a sister he became upset. She asked him what she looked like and he said, “like me but a girl.” I was only like seven weeks along during my miscarriages. He also has been waking up crying saying his sister came through his wall and it scared him. Could a spirit at seven weeks come back as a little girl? Am I crazy for thinking this is real? I’ve never felt like a spirit is around and I’m very open minded.

  65. For the past year my little girl is scared of a guy dressed in all black that runs at her and laughs in her face before telling her he his going to kill her.
    We where at a school trip and all the teens where playing with her and she was happy and laughing before she would stop and just stand there crying yelling to tell him not to kill her.
    It is random and we thought something might be making her thinking this but for a 3 year old to stop in middle of the town yelling with her eyes closed and ears covered “please don’t kill me, me not bad” is scaring alot of people.
    Any help would be greatful.

  66. My 3 year has seen a friend of mine that died when we were kids he is also named after him he was giggling and talking to someone and i asked him who he was talking to and he said your friend russel mommy and a few weeks ago my youngest she’s 16 months and picks up on words fast and was giggling and jabbering in the play room and i heard her say debbie and giggle some more which caught me off gaurd cause my great aunt debbie died before my daughter was born and we hadnt talked about around her

  69. My 19 yrs old autistic son (high functioning) saw last night a woman staring at him at the end of his bed. When he turned the light on she disappeared. More strange when he called us we found his book bag in the floor all wet and there was no cup or water bottle near it.
    What does this mean?? Thanks

  70. My father died almost a year ago, my son was 3 at the time, he had only met my father one time right before he turned 3. I didn’t speak to my dad at the time due to our stubbornness to completely forgive each other from the past. I never called my dad, spoke about him or anything, matter affect the only reason he met my dad was cause I went to Ohio to visit my mom. My parents are divorced, but very much still best of friends and still loved each other very much, after my dad died I heard he had told my family that he was going to be with my mother again. So my mom set us up to go to his house, and to lunch. Derrick my son didn’t pay much attention to my dad, we got one photo that’s it… Anyway after my dad died and his body had been cremation, my mother brought my dad to me a few months later. Once he started talking about my dad. My father died on his birthday, last year, sad messed up situation. My dad was a body builder, boxer, 3rd degree black belt, huge 6’3 man. He loved fishing and women unfortunately. None of this is things my son could or would no. So he started telling me he was play fighting my dad and my dad let Derrick hit him, and my dad fell back and said that it was ok, he liked playing with him. I asked where he was at that time, he said that papaw mark was going to check on his girlfriend, he would be back. Then this has continued since just diff things, papaw mark is fishing outside, I live on the bay. He came to me one night and said papaw mark said that he wanted me to know that he loved me, his sissy, his daddy, him, and mamaw. It got quiet for a while, I was on meds that made me numb, so I didn’t show much emotion. Over the past weekend though I got off my meds to switch to something different, it was to risky and no docs would do it so I did it on my own, to say it was bad, is an understatement. I had to stay at hotel so I didn’t scare my children. Since last weekend alot of emotions are hitting me and I’ve been crying ALOT. I was outside and my son came out and looked towards the driveway, shook his head turned to me and said papaw mark said no cry no crying. My dad didn’t like emotions, it was weak to cry. And my son moved his hands just like my father would have. My husband thinks this is my son’s imagination and creativity. I want to believe he is here I need him to know I love him and wish things would have been different. He sometimes runs in screaming ghost I live near a cemetery, and he said he scared of them, I assume it might be my grandpa, or my husband’s mother watching as well, which he didn’t no either of them ever so would naturally not trust them. Idk what to do…

  71. Another episode happened with my 4 year old . . . This has been happenin for 2 years now. First, it was my step dad. My son at 2 started talking about papa which he had never met and said “papa is an dentist”. Something he would never know. I finally had to pull out pictures and asked him if papa was in any of these pictures he pointed to my step dad. So after 2 years he stI’ll talks about papa. Well today it was my father who had passed away over 30 years ago. I have never spoke of him to my son. He said his name was junior. My father was a junior and it stated that he doesn’t talk to him much cuz he had no legs and hurt his head. My father was in abandoned horrible pedestrian car accident which amputated his legs and severe brain damage. How would my son know this? My question is it common for multiple spirit’s to come through to my 4 year old son? And why?

  72. Both my daughters 7 an 4 which are very bright lil girls and are very well aware of spirits as we teuly believe in them for many reasons that i will not explain here.
    Tonight as they both were preparing to get their pj’s seen a spirit very clearly but the sex was not mentioned of the spirit. My 7 yr old did freak out due to the fact this one had a cut on its throat. Which has me concerned an puzzled. We have never known nor do we have family nor friends that had been passed on in no such manner.. what is your advice.

  73. Hi
    I’d like to share my experience ofvour grand daughter’s birth. My daughter wanted to share her first child’s birth with me. Korzayais 3weeks old.
    At first the midwife sent us home saying baby may take a while to arrive. So we prepared to go home. Immediately my daughter went cold and shivered so much we had to put the heater on. We live in Queensland Australia. It was so bad her bedroom was like ice. Once my daughter was having 3 minute contractions we went back to the hospital.
    Every time my daughter had a contraction the light above us flickered. At first we just ignored it but it became more noticeable that the midwife turned the lights out. But when a cushion in the far corner of the room flipped that to me was enough. I got up from the cornrr of the room and listened to the nurse and started to realise my grand daughter’s head wasn’t positioned right.
    I began to tell the trainee midwife to check my gran daughter’s heart beat everytime my daughterchad a contraction. My daughter was 9 cms dialated and wanted to push so desperately But she wasn’t allowed to until Korzayas head had turned correctly. This took hours of persuasion and both her partner and I had to grab all opportunities to give my daughter the strength to manipulate babies head around without baby being stuck in the birth canal. I truly believe her great grand parents (deceased) were present. From 12am till 5.44am and Korzaya arrived. I do believe she has her nannys and poppas with her.
    Korzaya dreams alot and smiles alot when sleeping.

  74. my father in law recently passed 8th sept 2016, my daughter has since told of several dreams/ visits from Grandad.
    First been him been accompanied by my grandad and my husbands she named and described there exact manorisums and things they’d say. At the end of telling me about it she also added “oh and there was peter to your other grandad”. My daughter is 3 and my grandad peter passed when my dad was 18 long before I was born so I’ve never really mentioned him to her certainly never told her his name??!! No one has!
    Then the other day she came through to our room during the night which she never does and it was very strange but half asleep we just got her duvet and she slept on our floor. The next morning she informed us of how grandad had come to see her again and that he loved us and missed us and was sad to be in heaven because he missed us, she then continued to say he followed her through to our room give me and her dad a cuddle then her then floated off to see her brother and give him a cuddle. She described him as having a see through bum and arms and she said she came through cause she got scared and she thought grandad was a ghost.
    Later in the day my husband asked her about it and we got on to what he looked like……she placed her hands on her chest (just like her grandads were in the funeral home) and said he had a red flower here and pointed to between her hands.
    She never saw him once he had passed nor did she know my mother in law had place a single red rose in his hands that were placed across his chest.

  75. My 17 ur old son has been seeing a male ghost for over 2 yrs now. He can describe what the guy looks like and everything. My son also says my youngest son who is 14 also has a ghost that is a female. My boyfriend saw a figure in my room this past Saturday night, while I was in the bath tub. He described a make that seemed similar to what my oldest has been seeing so I asked my oldest to describe his “friend” when my bf started describing what he saw it was not my sons ghost friend. I haven’t ever seen anything or heard anything but all the males in my house have. I am really curious about ghosts and stuff and just curious if there could be a reason why they won’t show themselves to me. My sons’ ghosts only seem to come around if my oldest is stressed or worried or scared of something. It’s starting to bother me that I haven’t seen anything yet. Lol

  76. My son passed away in Oct. 2014. He was only 26, and was the youngest of our six. And always the one to get a laugh out of people, and truly doted on his nieces and nephews. When he died, his little nephew (my grandson) Adrian was only 22 months old. Barely talking, but adored his Uncle Ian. He started doing things like giggling and pointing at the corner of the room a lot, or saying “Ian funny!” or “Ian peek a boo!”

    His older brother who is now 10 also told us, about a year ago, that he had seen Ian in our house. Kind of hazy and transparent, but in the hallway. Ian often played Nerf guns with Alex, so Alex said to this image “Wanna play?” And reported that Ian said “yes” in a voice that sounded like when you talk underwater. <3

  77. Since the passing of my husband almst three yrs ago, my youngest granddaughter hs always told me that her Grampy smiles, blows kisses to her from the clouds and tells her how much he loves her. She has recently told us and her teacher thst the one place that makes her happy is her grandfaters grave. It warms my heart as his last night with them was a surprise, he loved all three so much, but Sam and Sicily had a different bond maybe the baby syndrome but it was special. He died that night a hour and a half after saying good nght in our basement.

  78. I was 12 or 13 and visiting family out of the state. I had a “dream” I saw my cat dying, with patches of hair missing and a worm coming out of him. The next thing I saw was the cat restored to health, resting on a rock and looking beautiful, in a warm light. When I got home from my visit I found out my cat had eaten poison and died.

  79. My grandson has seen spirit since young.he is seeing shadow people this year and he said it chased him.he came to stay and has been here 4 weeks and last night slept in other small room.he told me he saw a man figure with hunchback and shoulder length hair standing in doorway. He is very distressed about it. I have cleansed house put salt in doorways . How can I help him he is 14 years old..it frightens him

  80. Yes, indeed… my son was 26 when he passed, in Oct 2014. My daughter and her two young sons, and my son, all lived with us at the time. In the months following Ian’s death, my grandson Adrian (who was 22 months in Oct 2014) kept doing things that proved to us that he was seeing his uncle. He would laugh and point at the corner of the room, and say “EEE funny!” Or he’d say “Uncle EEE peek a boo!” This happened quite frequently. And, even now, as he’s just turned 4, he is still talking about him with such familiarity, as though he has been with him all along. This from a toddler who could barely talk at the time he lost his uncle. We know Ian is with us all the time, because the rest of us get signs on a regular basis. Love really IS forever. <3

  81. When my grandson Connor was three, he told my daughter that he had a sister but she lives in heaven. This child was not aware that my daughter had lost a baby early on and she was unaware of the sex of that child.

  82. When I, and my very young children lived in the UK, (way back in 1970’s), we got a small terraced house and along with it we got a spirit called Katy. Katy would visit with my Son, who was less than 2 yrs. old, in his bedroom in the evenings, and I would hear him conversing with her, it set the hairs on my neck rising. Naturally I could not hear her but it was obvious he was talking with someone. When asked, he told me she was ‘a lady’ and her name was Katy.
    We had no relatives or friends of that name, he had never heard that name before. When I inquired of the neighbours if they knew of this Katy, they informed me that a woman had lived in our house who loved kids and fostered them, but she had fallen down the stairs one day and died… her name was Katy.
    When we were making plans to move to Canada and had our house up for sale, I literally felt her trying to turn me over (pulling at my shoulder), when I was in bed. She woke me up! My husband saw her disappearing through the wardrobe and wall to go into my Son’s room. I don’t think she wanted us to leave.
    My eldest daughter has seen many spirits throughout her life.

  83. I was sleeping pretty hard after a long week of hardly any rest working and taking care of my young kids needs cleaning and meals etc. But I woke up to see a older lady bending over my youngest son, it didn’t scare me and she was dressed ain a white lace dress. she just looked curious like a Mother checking in on a sleeping baby. I was touched and thought many times after this that it was my Parental GrandMother whom I had never met because she passed before I was born. I did see pics of her and not totally sure by them but I felt safe and secure knowing she cared enough to check in. 🙂 Of course she was gone after a few moments but I welcome the thought anytime she wants to come.

  84. My nephew was killed when he was 19 years old. At the funeral our friends Little girl asked her mom who was the man standing by the box and waving to her. She was referring to the casket, and there was no one standing next to it.
    This was after the service but before the burial.
    It gave me comfort knowing he was aware of all that were there to say goodbye to him.

  85. My son see his grandma he never met,15 years between his birth and her passing. But she tell him he is the worst Draven ever.Which would never say, Ever. But I believe their is a child spirit involved as well. Who may be mean. I encourage him to talk to grandma, To tell the child to leave him alone. Should I sage my home and wish it gone, Or Do I leave it be. He knew things about my mother he would have never known unless she was with him. Help?????????????

  86. My mum died last july and for the past few months my little girl has been terrified of being upstairs alone because she says “ma ma”(her name for my mum)is there in her room.
    Its pretty scary as she keeps saying she has seen my mum in her dreams but shes been “chopped up”.
    My little girl is distraught.shes so scared she wont even go upstairs to the loo alone and has even started peeing on my stairs carpet so she doesnt have to go upstairs.
    She isnt sleeping very well due to it all and has started being naughty at school due to tiredness.
    I have told her that grandma is in heaven and wont hurt her but she wont have it.she genuinely is petrified and its got the whole family worried for her.

  87. Hi Blair, Love this Ghost Story. Thanks. When my 2 year old great-granddaughter was a newborn her father came to tell me that my late husband had come to him in a dream and told him that he is looking over the baby and is her “angel”. It was so real that my grandson-in-law was convinced. He and my granddaughter have since been honoring my husband’s German heritage with Sophia. She uses Oma and Papa to denote her grandparents and is a happy, loving child. We have many pictures of my husband with his grandchildren crawling all over him. He delighted in them and the little ones in the neighborhood. I am sure he looks after all of us. LOVE NEVER DIES.

  88. My little granddaughter lives with me and quite frequently she will turn around and talk to someone in space as I call it. I was in the living room one day and she came running in there from the den where she had been playing happy as a lark. I ask her why she was so happy and she told me “I have been playing with my friend”. “He looks just like me and his name is Joy”. Cora was born with a twin brother,(Joy Lee) who passed away from SIDS when they were 3 months old. One day she came to the kitchen and she was mad. I ask her why she was so mad and she told me “Joy brought a friend with him to play”. “I don’t want him to bring any friends with him, he’s mine”. A month ago she had two cousins burn up in a house fire. These were on her fathers side so we didn’t know about it until the following day. On the day of the fire she kept coming and telling us that she had two cousins with Joy now. We kept telling her that no she didn’t and she was insistent that “yes, I do”. I encourage her to visit with the spirits and have fun with them. Cora is 3 years old and I hope she keeps this gift.

  89. A few days after my moms memorial my 9yr old woke frightened. He said he kept seeing hands trying to touch him. I knew it was my mom

  90. My 4 year old son keeps saying he was in a car crash with mum, dad and his sister and we all died, but he doesnt have a sister only a big brother does this mean anything? Can any one help me?

  91. My son is 6 and his hands were “stinging” and felt like they were in “hot lava.” After a trip to the ER with nothing physically wrong, I asked him about it this morning. He had no recollection of his hands burning or going to the ER last night. He’s told me that ghosts are in his room but don’t talk to him. Except a few months ago when that ghost told him that the ghost will kill his mommy. What can you tell me about possession?

  92. My daughter was in labor and said my mother who has passed told her to tell me to “stop it” and agustavastava …whatever that means. I have tried to look this word up but cannot find any meaning. This was a very hard labor and delivery… what is my mother trying to tell us ?

  93. My son woke me out my sleep and said the black man woke him up. So I said what .yeah mommy he touch my face and woke me up mommy .my son is 5yrs of age this the 4 time he told me about someone waking him up .and when I tell him it’s a dream he tell it wasn’t so am think if there is something in my house cause my 3yr old daughter always telling someone to stop touching her in her sleep am so worried at this time can’t sleep wake up to see if my kids are OK in there rooms

  94. When my daughter was very young about 2 years old, she saw “light balls” as she called them in the corner of her room near the ceiling. Every night. There were 3 of them.I asked her once if they spoke to her and she yes, but all they say is that everything’s going to be alright. She had severe asthma as a child and could have an attack in mere seconds. One night I was awoken by a bright ball of light zooming super fast around my room. I knew to go check on her immediately and thank goodness we lived a 5 minute drive to the ER. She was already turning blue. If her “light balls” hadnt woke me, I hate to think what could have happened.

  95. My son passed away suddenly over 6 months ago and my granddaughter who is 4 keeps having dreams and visions of him they were very close she often writes him nots and posts them on his bedroom walls she started putting her fingers in her ears while driving and my daughter ask her Lala what are you doing she says trying to hear uncle Rob music is too loud and he’s talking to me she says what is he saying she reply he said I miss you too baby don’t worry uncle Andy will take care of you she also says she has bad dreams but when she tells you what the dream was it’s super nice things about the family I have no doubt he’s talking through her some of the things she says has to of come from him I’m so happy she tells Grammy n mommy of her drams missing him is sad but love ❤️ that he talks to us through her I believe she is 4 and can’t possibly know some of the things she says without it coming from my Son

  96. My husband passed a year ago. He was extremely close to our six year old grandson.
    Reid told me that papa was an angel now and hugs him in his bed. I begged and begged my husband to get me a message that he still loved me because of how he died. I cried and cried for months begging and begging for him to tell me he still loved me. One day I was with Reid the grandson and I asked him if he ever saw papa and he said yes. I asked him where and he said in my dreams. I then asked him if papa ever talks to him and he immediately said without hesitation “yes, papa wanted me to tell you he still loves you”. I damn near fell over, I started to cry and poor Reid got upset thinking he made me cry and I told him they were very very happy tears.

  97. My husband David passed may 28,2016…I have 6 grandkids but the 3yr old sees her pawpaw Everytime moon is out and in her room..She talks to him but has never told about their talks until a wk ago when she told me paw paw loves you nanny and is waiting for you in heaven…She told him I loved him but couldn’t come right now because she needed me….She points him out when she sees him by the moon but only she sees him

  98. absolutely kids see spirits. my daughter, when she was may be 3, told me my great grandmother told her that she was not in pain anymore and she was happy. she only saw her great great grandmother once when she was like a month old – it was the day she was baptized !!!!! love never dies.

  99. My 5 year old granddaughter has always been spooked by a tall black women that “Visits” her at all times of the day. My daughter has been taking her a therapist to see if she can get help, they have tried many different medications to get the “manic episodes” under control. With no luck in either therapy and medications we are trying to understand more of what she is dealing with. She has often screamed in terror in the middle of the night, ran from one end of the room to the other and hid under the furniture because someone was in the other corner watching her. She also talks to herself making no sense at all. She sometimes yells “leave me alone!” when no one was even talking to her. My granddaughter was an infant my daughter would often call with strange things that happened in the apartment. Lamps would be nocked over, kitchen lights would flicker and many different (Strange) things. We are so desperate to find the right help for her. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  100. This is more a question than a comment I suppose. My daughter says she sees ghosts and she is afraid of them. She will not sleep in her room because that is where they are.

    Sometimes she’ll be talking to me and whisper to her side “go away”. She says someone is talking to her and it scares her. She says it is a ghost.

    My mother recently told me that when my grandfather passed away six years ago, my aunt ( Who is now also deceased) had a circle of everyone joining hands in the living room and each person said something to release him such as “it is OK to go” etc. They joined hands in celebration of life and love, that was the intention.

    My mother also told me that when I arrived, my grandfather had just passed and my mother took my three week old daughter and put her on his chest and in her mind “willed” some of his spirit into her, with the intention of passing along some of his spirit to her, so we could live on, in her, where she would never know him in life.

    Where the “intention” was positive, is there any risk to my child? I know that intention is a powerful thing and her tensions were good but I worry about what kind of things could’ve manifest.

  101. My 25 year old daughter passed leaving behind her 3 year old daughter. One day her daughter was in her room singing a song about how her Mommy was in heaven and that’s why nobody can see her(repeating what I had told her). She ended the song with…but I can!!!

  102. my greatgranddaughter told me that she knows how her Nana’s Dad had died. Nana being my daughter and her Dad my husband. how is this possible, as no one has ever discussed this with her as she is only 5 years old.

  103. my greatgranddaughter says she knows how her greatgrandfather died and no one has ever told her this. she is 5 years old

  104. Please help me! I am a child of eleven and last night my dog wanted to come in. As I opened the door I saw a little girl, about 6, in a hospital wardrobe. Long black hair. I could see through her and she was blue in the face. I looked like someone had strangled her. This scared me to death. I did not get any sleep in fear that she was going to somehow get into my room. My mother said that my nana has blessed this whole house. I was afraid to close my eyes, or look out any window. Last night I heard things shifting. Please help me!! I do not want this spirit in my life! I am afraid she is going to hurt me!

  105. A family friends 13 yr old daughter recently passed away 2 yrs ago and i went to see a medium recently to get some answers as to why i was feeling a friendly presence of something/someone around me and than she went on to tell me that my 4 yr old daughter constantly communicates with her and she even described what she looked like to me to a “T” and the medium had said that shes around my daughter all of the time what does this mean

  106. My daughter continues to to speak to nothing claiming it’s her “ghost sister or sisters “. I thought at first it was just an imaginary friend, however tonight I over heard talking and it was a little unsettling.
    Stepped out of my room to call for her when I over heard her.
    “Why would you do that ghost sister? That would be mean. Okay I’ll be quiet but why? Why do I need to be quiet?”
    This whole time I was repeatingly calling her name. This has been going on for two years and tonight was the first time I’ve gotten chills from this.
    Should i take her to therapist?

  107. My best friend passed away back in January. My 3 year old daughter sees and talks to him all of the time. We were laying in bed the other night, almost asleep, when she sits straight up and says, mommy chi said he loves you. My heart skipped a beat I swear. (His name is Richie and she calls him chi) Then today she went for a walk with my daughter and came home with a little gumball machine ring she found outside. She was showing me and says, chi showed me where it was. So I called my other daughter in to ask her where she found it. She says, mom it was so weird because it was on the side of the street underneath stuff and she walked right over and picked it up. I can say that I feel relief knowing that he is still very much here with my daughters and me. I never tell her she doesn’t see him or she can’t. I ask her to tell him things like I miss him or love him too.

  108. My grandson often says he can see Poppy ( my Dad ). He also says that Poppy is all gold. I’m not sure what that means, but would love to know. When my grandson was younger he told his Mum that he was playing with his friend and when she asked his friends name he said Piggy. When she told me I smiled and said that that was what my brothers ( who passed in 1978 ) nick name was .

  109. I woke up and saw my 2 year old son at 3am sitting by the closet talking to someone but didn’t see anyone. Also I was watching tv with my 3year daughter old when we saw something pass by so quickly. We looked at each other and she asked what is that?” I thought I was the only one to see it. I said, is nothing and she layed back down. I’m a little scared, because I seen her talk to someone inside the closet. My son also has ran from the closet to the other side of the room scared and points at the closet.

  110. My 20 month niece came to my house to visit. That evening she stairing out of the window saying over there and pointing her. There was clearly nothing outside of window so I took her outside. She walked down the driveway pointed and yelling over there. She stopped about midway in the driveway and looked up at me and Weggey. That is what my sister called my son but he passed away 4 years ago. His really name was Wesley. He loved the stars at night and often say on the tailgate of his truck stairing at them. I do thinkmy niece saw Wes that night. Sometimes I feel like he is there myself.

  111. Is there a reason I can here spirits but only seen them every once and a while? Like I’ll b up for hours and discus things with a voice that comes from next to me in my room but I’ve only seen the boy who I’m speaking with once.
