WDYT of children that can see or feel spirits?

I took my son today to a naturopath because he seems so drawn and depleted. We got talking about his diet and how his sleeping is so restless and he talks alot of seeing dark people in our house down stairs! ohmy.gif He has told us in the past that the black people talk to him, but now the white people stop them from talking to him.

We are open about this sort of thing in our household, our boys have all talked about 'spiritual' things and seeing things around the place, so are your children aware of spiritual things like spirits?

so are your children aware of spiritual things like spirits?I know Brock can.

Nanna:The last Brock saw my Mum was in early May last year. It ended up as a once off last visit for them, as she was not the Nanna they remembered. Anyway I recorded a message from Mum a week later which they have not heard to this day, Mum said "Nanna loves you".

Fast forward to 3 mths later after Mum died, I am sitting on my bed giving Brock cuddles when out of the blue he says "Nanna is sitting on the bed, she says she loves me".

Now my friend used to look after Brock while I worked. One day I come to collect him and my friend says he sent chills up my up spine today, umm why ? I asked and her reply was "because he ran up to me today and said My Nanna who is dead says she loves me as if he only just heard".

The Little Girl:
Not long after we moved in this house Brock was commenting on a little girl in his room sitting on his bed. Many times he would say to DH and I "come see come see" and point into a empty room. Brock got point where he was grabbing our hands to come see this little girl.

So one day as I was leaving the bathroom I hear "Mummy", I walk down to the lounge in my towel and ask DH what do the boys want. What do you mean ? he asked "well I just heard call for me" DH looked at me puzzled and said "they didn't say anything".

One morning sitting outside just about to sip my first coffee, Brock is walking out of his room with blanky in tail and what do I see but a little blonde haired girl following him; I blinked but couldnt see her after that.

I know the people before us had teenage boys, I have asked neighbors weather or not there was a little girl around because I could never understand when we bought this house the cubby house at the back is set out with girly stuff eg. a pink tea set and dolls. Would love to find out about this house's history.

We are religous and my children attend sunday school almost every Sunday for 2 hours, so it's something we as a family all beleive in.

My children often see, hear and know things. My children have seen their younger siblings before they where conceived. Chloe often talks about a younger sister and asks me when I'm going to have her. She has also talked about seeing 'walking shadows' and an old man that keeps them away. One day she brought me a photo of my grandfather and told me that he looked like the man that keeps them away.

Actually Victoria once told me she saw her great nanna, the same nanna who brought her to mummy and daddy before she was born. Nanna was with a little baby who was very sad cause Aunty didn't want to have the little baby. But then her great nanna said something to the baby and the baby was happy cause nanna told the baby that someone wants to be their mummy. I forgot all about it till my younger sister recently found out she's pregnant.

Apparantly I told my mum that my nanna came to say good bye to me after she died. I was about Kitarni's age at the time.

I think children have a closer "link" to the spiritual world than adults, and as a result they are more in tune with spiritual activity.
DH has been aware of the spiritual world since he was a child, in a physical sense, and well before he became a Christian.

Our eldest sees, hears and smells "things" which I believe are part of the spirit world.
Our 3rd son is acutely aware of missing his twin sister who we lost in-utero early in the pregnancy. It's not quite the same - but again I think it's because children just have a less corrupted, clearer "view" of the world outside our physical adult world.

Thank you for your replies, and agree with you all. I think it is a complete valid concept to be aware spiritually, one thing that I tell my boys is to not be afraid.

I can sense people's energy fields, and I just know that my family or close friends are in crisis or have issues. What happens to me alot is I will have a thought or a feeling about something, then within the week that thing that I felt will happen to someone!

With my son's we talk it through and see if they can deal with it before we jump in and help.

Thanks again for your stories, and WOW they are creepy and chilly aren't they? the part I love is how children are so matter of fact about telling people laughing2.gif

Yes, although it seems private to talk about, and I don't know why? It's not because others might think we're strange, but more because it's a special occurance when there has been contact.

I think most children have amazing imaginations and creativity.

Agreed. However if these 'spirits' were interfering with my childs heath I would think about some kind of couselling.

My DD never slept a full night through until about 8 months ago.  We went to GP's, Paeds, Naturopath, Chiropractors, and Sleep Clinics, and eventually just accepted it.

Then a lady told me that when I put her to bed, I should tell all her 'friends' in a very loud, clear voice that she needed her sleep and no-one was to wake her until 6am.

I now have a child that sleeps til at least 6am each morning.
