I didn't have an "imaginary" friend; mine was a real live... I mean, dead, terrifying ghost!
I never tried to make friends with it.

I don't remember any of my family ever talking about having a childhood imaginary friend, either. But, apparently, a lot of kids do make friends with these dead people (or worse... demons!).

Do your kids have "Imaginary Friends"? Do they ever talk about them, or describe how they look? Did you have one?

Here are 14 creepy things (first link) kids have said, and 23 descriptions (lower source link) that kids have shared:

My youngest had an imaginary friend. It was, as far as I could tell, a friend that wasn't like his older brother. Nothing creepy, nor out of the ordinary in my estimation, just a manifestation of what my youngest wanted out of a big-brother.

I think such imaginary friends are not to be shunned nor denied, as it helps develop social interaction or what one thinks social interaction should be. I implore parents to be involved with their offspring if such imaginary friends do arise and be engaging with the child. Just as parents should know their children's friends, they should ask about imaginary friends. It opens a window into how that child thinks.

Great post. I couldn't read them all since it's really late and it's been a long day. Some of these leave you to wonder. Like the kid with the hammer. He can barely talk and he forms that sentence?

I'm always so torn between supernatural belief and denial because while I've literally never had any sort of paranormal experience and know no one who has I can never not be creeped out at least somewhat (despite being way less scareable than I used to be). Some of those stories out there are terrifying.

When I was a kid I had no friends so I wanted to have an imaginary friend very badly, but I didn't even have one of those. So I made one up and pretended I had an imaginary friend. I guess I had an imaginary, imaginary friend.

Young kids don't have 'imaginary' friends, they are real. Young kids can see what we cant because they still have the power to see into the astral world, the next world where we come from. They can see into the astral plane because they have not yet become tainted by us. We adults 'teach' kids to not believe in 'imaginary friends' and the astral plane which causes them to loose their belief and therefore their ability to see into the astral plane and talk to people they see.

Australian aboriginals believe the reasons for tantrums when kids about 2 years old is because the kids at that age start to loose the ability to go back into the astral plane (dreamtime in aboriginal parlance) at will. The Aboriginal remedy for tantrums is to talk quietly to the child and tell them they will be fine and that you will take care of them. This is why in years past there was very little evidence of tantrums in aboriginal children.

This comes from one of Tuesday Lobsang Rumpa's books, cant remember which one now, 30 years ago now but still got the books.

yea, yea, yea, I know all abut the debunking etc etc etc so don't bother with it. Don't believe any of it if you don't want to, no one is trying to make you. You have nothing to fear.

I didn't have an imaginary friend, but I would see a guy that nobody else could see when I was a small child, barely able to talk. My grandmother later told me about how much it freaked her out. I can still remember it very well to this day, the guy standing at the foot of the bed. I was not looking for an imaginary friend, and although I was not scared at the time, it scares me today...There are also incidents within my family with children seeing such things, most of them occurring in the same house, which incidentally had all kinds of strange occurrences. There was one instance that slipped my mind up until now. In the house I allude to one of my relatives had two children, both of whom would see such things periodically. Most were uneventful insofar as she couldn't see anything, and only heard the kids talking about this guy they saw, and she would hear one of them talking to him.

They were relatively far apart in age, so they were not seeing him at the same time, rather this happened years apart. This one time she heard my cousin talking to someone, but nobody was there. He was on the swingset in the back yard, and she had said that it was like someone was pushing him, but she couldn't see anyone. That was not even the strangest thing that went on in that house. It creeps me out just thinking about that place to be honest, even though it was a normal-looking house, and they were the first ones to live in it after it was built. My grandmother says that some of them used to play with the ouija boards a lot before this all started, which I suppose could be what caused these things. I don't remember the particulars, but my grandmother also told me about how when some of those living in that house moved out, the activity followed them to their new home. I've talked about my few paranormal experiences before on ATS, and some of those of family members whom I trust, but there are many more that have been related to me by older members of my family which I've stored up in my memory. If I didn't know the people who had some of these things happen to them, I would probably think they were insane. And if I had not stayed in that particular house a number of times, and had things happen to me over the years, I would probably have a hard time believing them.

I had a friend - perhaps because at that time I was an only child. His name was Arfur and I scared the death when a toddler shrieking out "No you'll sit on Arfur" when anyone went to sit next to me.

I haven't thought about Arfur for so long, but when I read through some of your posts he popped into my head.

Wow, thanks for sharing dear Sled. What an interesting read.


I've had plenty of spirits around growing up, no need for imaginary friends. Some were nice, some scared me because of the way they looked (injuries), but none of them ever told me to do bad things.

I'm not an expert but after reading all these accounts, I'd say a lot of these weren't good spirits, but rather lost souls, or even demons, trying to trick children into doing evil things.

My daughter had an imaginary friend when she was 4 her name was Isla, and she started misbehaving a bit and i thought Isla must have just been a cover for her doing bad things because she would say Isla told me too do it, but on a couple occasions at night me and my partner heard banging in her room when she was fast asleep like something falling and on one of the occasions we heard a little girls voice say her name twice it was so creepy, after that i told her to describe her and she said she had messy hair and an old dress, creepy, my daughter would sit in her toom and talk away at thin air too like she was having a full conversation with someone and while walking around the house, anyway she was around about 6 months and then was suddenly gone. Everyone just said it was probably her over active imagination, but them weird things happening and me and her dad both hearing it im not so sure? she is 7 now im tempted to ask her about it now but i don't really want her to return, that was just too creepy for me. My sons seem too see things that i don't aswell not to that extent though.

Kids can be so creepy! What's with all the homicidal imaginary friends?!

Children are able to see things since they're "new." Most people grow out of it, mediums are stuck with it. I both envy and feel sorry for mediums, being able to see spirits all the time must be an interesting life but one where you never truly get alone time. Imagine getting dressed or showering knowing someone or something is in the room with you. Gives me the shivers.

Greetings- If You also look at instances of "past Life recall" You'll notice that a majority are children. The child's Pineal Gland has not yet begun to "calcify" which allows the information to be delivered. There are literally 1,000s of cases where children can retrieve "their info" but as they age/calcify, that info is harder to retrieve.

"Imaginary Friend" for a Methodist™ is a "Spirit Guide" for a Hopi is an "Angel" for a Catholic™ etc..

If You had One as a kid, "they" are still there.. Most Pineal Glands are like this: • when it needs to be like this . to get the info. You can "go back"...

namaste

P.S. Tell Your "friend" I typed "Hi"

People seem to underestimate kids. You'd be surprised at what they can come up with. Their minds don't exactly have filters, so everything they may see (t.v.) or hear (from parents, and other family members) goes directly into their subconcious. Their minds take in everything.
I clearly remember coming up with all kinds of morbid things that seemed like they just couldn't have come from me, but they did. All that morbid stuff was in my head.. stuff I had gathered from all sorts of things. None of which were supernatural.

Well most of the accounts are seemingly from rather negative beings, though only the occasionally family member who had passed. Quite a few wanted to incite murder in the children.

They're not remembering home, they're seeing into whats around us.

I found these two captions personally interesting from the first link...


I never had an imaginary friend as a child, but I've had some experiences with the "supernatural" that have shaped my outlook on life, death, and reality, to this day. Still looking for answers I may never find.

as children we might all have imaginary friends and associates in our midst in spirit form helping us adjust to the new surroundings
growing up in the 60s we had more tv shows/movies about visiting spirits/ghosts/jeannies/etc and it didnt seem that odd to talk about family members visiting from otherworldly places or having special abilities, telepathy, astral travel etc
crazy isnt it ?

Since my daughter was 4(she's now 14) she has been seeing a little girl with long, black hair, in a white dress with a rose attached to the front of it. She said the little girl has black eyes and other times her eyes were "swirling". I remember vividly her telling me and her mom about this many times throughout her childhood, and I have no doubts that she was telling the truth. She said that sometimes this little girl was with a man and that she had blood all over her. It was some freaky stuff to hear my little girl tell of this stuff. One time, my daughter came running and screaming out of the bathroom. She was shaking and terrified. She kept describing the little girl the same every time. She saw her in her room many times and would run terrified. My daughter stopped seeing her when she was around 10-11.

Now get this. When my oldest son, who was 3 at the time(he is now 5), said he saw a little girl in the bathroom. I shivered. I heard him talking in the bathroom one day. I knocked on the door and asked him who he was talking to, and he said his friend--a little girl. I asked him what she was saying and he shrugged his shoulders and didn't want to talk about it. I listened to the conversations for a while every time he had them. He truly believed he was talking to someone. He hasn't talked to her since he turned 4. My youngest son, who is 4, hasn't said anything about it and I hope he never does. But they've seen "shadows" a lot. They still tell me this.
