I believe children are very much more inclined to experience otherworldly phenomena than adults. I too, as a child, experienced some strange things -
like memories seemingly from another lifetime, and I'd see ghosts - every night as I lay in bed late at night I'd watch small shadowy creatures moving
back and forth past my open door. I experienced many things of such nature.
I wonder why children are like this. What makes them different from adults in this respect? Why and how are they better able to perceive the so-called
paranormal? I assume it's something to do with the development and aging process of the brain. Perhaps our adult minds become shielded as we mature,
more focused on the physical world. We become firmly cemented in our tangible world, and become blinded to anything else.
Almost every child sees "monsters", and imaginary friends and all that aren't uncommon. You're certainly not unique in experiencing strange things as
a kid. Yet by the age of around ten or so, we tend to have grown out of it. If only I were some sort of neuroscientist; I'd love to make a study of
this, about the physical attributes of the young, as yet undeveloped brains of children that enable them to have such experiences.
