I am looking to see if anyone has had a smiliar experience.

A bit of back ground first, my father passed away in Jan 2013 and my daughter was born in July 2013.

My wife an i have 1 picture of my father in our house on a shelf quite high up. However, my wifes father came around ours the other day while we were having dinner. My father in law was waving through a window with my daughters back to said window.

When I asked "wheres grandad" she immediately pointed up to my fathers picture. Initially we looked at each other - my wife and I - Obviously my father and daughter never met.

A few days later my daugher and wife were in our bedroom and my wife heard our daughter whispering while lying on our bed. My wife asked, randomly - "where is grandad" my daughter pointed to the back of the room. This freaked my wife out a little.

Has anybody had a similar experience?

My friend has two children now eight and twelve. His father died before they were born and his father's name was never mentioned or told to the kids and they didn't know his face on any of the pictures. One evening he heard his oldest, when he was six years old, conversing in his room alone. Puzzled, my friend asked his child who he was talking to. The boy told him he was talking to his grandfather and gave his complete name. It threw my friend for a loop. He grabbed a picture off one of the shelves and asked his son to point to his grandfather. His son picked his grandfather out from a grounp of six people.

I think children have a very strong connection with whatever is on the other side.

I saw an elderly man in our room when I was 10-11 he was just like a real person I could even see the texture of his wooly coat in the light from a street window. He just looked at me and my sisters and then was gone.

I didn't really like my grandpa that much. He was very cold when he was around me, and made me feel funny inside. I'm certain the apparition I saw was just another satanic impostor, trying to add my grandfathers credibility with its little plugs for his supposed goodness. Its uncanny knowledge of my childhood proved nothing, as the entire population of hell has access to the events of human lives and can quote them when it serves the demonic purpose.

Clearly your child detected something disturbing about the spirit, even if she didn't have the words to explain exactly what it was.

Check out my experience here:

Entirely too long to post, even in a summary.

But based off my own experience? Absolutely.

When my daughter was around 2, she kept telling me that she liked the "lady up high". I tried and tried to figure out what she was talking about, but never could. It wasn't me or her grandmother. It wasn't anyone on TV. It wasn't any picture on the wall. I asked what color hair the lady had, and she said red. No woman with red hair had been around her at that point.

Always thought it was a little strange.

Oddly enough I only watched this the other day.
Creepy If true. (Some are more apt then others).

Maybe your Grandpa didn't know how to display his feelings for you while he was in this reality. Now, in his present reality he "knows" and wanted you to know that he still existed, and, maybe he thought enough of you to want to see you again.

On November 21, 1963, my mother was 12. It was early evening and she and her 4 siblings were horsing around in a bedroom. She was jumping up and down on a bed. She started chanting "The president is dead, the President is dead." My grandmother, being a stern and old fashioned woman, took a belt to my mother. John Kennedy was dead about 16 hours later. 2 of the children closest to her age, my uncle Harry and my aunt Candy remember this clearly.

A friend said that after he moved in to his deceased granfather's house his two daughters saw an "old man" out the window by the bird feeder and described his grandfather (in overalls) to a "T"; a few years later my friend's nephew was going to have a party at the house while they (the adults) were away; the teen opened the door to the basement and saw an old man frowning at the base of the stairs. His grandfather had had a shop in the basement. Both true stories.

I saw my first ghost when I was 11. It was a girl in my bedroom, she was dressed in a private school or catholic school uniform. A white blouse and pleated plaid skirt and had long black hair. I wasn't asleep. I could see her pull back a curtain and look out the window. I screamed at the top of my lungs, she disappeared by the time my mother and stepfather burst into the room. There were 2 other times, when I was older. One was not very clear and the other was audio only, he was singing.

I have a friend that we've known since he was a kid.

And after hearing all the crazy stories about him seeing stuff.

I definitely think there is something going on.

I myself remember seeing things when I was a kid. Stuff that I saw, not imagined that I had seen.

I'm not a believer. I'm not religious or spiritual in any way. My roots are firmly grounded in logic.

However, my partner, her daughter and I moved into an old house together for the first time. After we'd settled we'd occasionally hear my partner's daughter chatting after bedtime. My partner would usually just call upstairs for her to go to sleep and stop playing, school in the morning, and all the usual reasons (her daughter was was six). This went on and off for a few months.

Winter came, and as we were living in a thatched cottage with just a simple oil burner for heat and hot water, we went to our local wood supplier for fuel for the wood burner. We ordered a ton of logs and they took our address for delivery. He said "Oh, you've moved into X cottage (X is obviously a pseudonym), I suppose you've heard the story?". We had not, but he told us of a death on the premises a couple decades previously. The owners daughter had died in the well in the front garden. "But we don't have a well in the garden!" we replied, but we looked when we got home. There was a well, which had been blocked up with bricks and rubble and bushes planted to hide it.

It didn't affect me in the least, but my partner insisted we move come the following summer, and we did. I really loved that house and wish we'd stayed.

I do believe they can. They have not been subjected to the negativity surrounding such abilities.

My grandson was in his crib one night and supposed to be asleep, when I looked in on him through the crack in the door he was wide awake standing up and was talking to himself it seems. He was happy and kept dancing around the crib and there was this shadow that seem to follow him. There was not any light other than the night light and it was in a place that did not give off enough light for a shadow to do what it was doing.

Thing is, his other grandmother had committed suicide in the same apartment 2 years before and prior to his birth we had strange things happening all the time. She was a troubled soul and we believe that her spirit never left.

I truly believe they can see things that an adult cannot. I know I saw things that haunt me to this day when I was young and I don't have any doubt that they were real and I feel like I have lost what ever gift it was that let me see them. I feel numb these days and sometimes wish to be visited and scared like i have been in the past. I guess I'm glad I know it happened and I wouldn't doubt a child that told me they experienced something out of the norm. I definitely have an open mind ever since.the truly unexplainable things I've encountered in this life have been shared with my closest friend when we were young and my own daughters not that long ago . That means something to me.

I believe so but not all children as some due like to tell tales or not understand things so it may come off as "I seen a ghost". Children and parents have a connection before and after birth that connects them "paranormal" wise. As children grew older, often the said influence by societal norms, they grow away from that protective psychic bond as well as being able to sense the dead.

I saw/heard a couple ghosts as a kid, which is why I'm a believer now.

In terms of kids seeing spirits, I'd have to say that yes, they can sometimes see what us "old" people cannot see or sense. As we get older, we start to form our own ideas about the world around us, based on what are parents and friends tell us. IE: You raise a kid, and tell him that "all ghosts are the Devil in disguise", and eventually, the kid will start to think that. When they are younger, they don't know the difference between a ghost or any other "living" person, just that the person is there.

I had several strange experiences after my grandfather died. I must have been about 12 to 13 years of age. Several cases of hearing my name being called while I was walking outside. It was so intense that I turned around fully expecting somebody to stand behind me but I could not see anybody. In one isolated case I did not hear or see anything unusual but had an extremely intense feeling of a "presence" following me into my room in our flat while I was at home alone. This felt very threatening to me back then but ever since I have been rationalizing that it could simply have been my deceased grandpa trying to get my attention. The ominous feeling it gave me might simply have been due to the otherworldly/unknown aspect of the experience. I don't think it was "just in my mind".


The Guardian had the following headline about just a week ago:

Childhood hallucinations are surprisingly common – but why?


Many children hear voices or have visions.



One UK study found that almost two-thirds of children reported having at least one “psychotic-like experience” in their lives, a category that also includes unshiftable and unrealistic beliefs and fears. When focusing purely on hallucinations, a review of research found that 17% of 9-12-year-olds have these experiences at any one time. The number roughly halves in teenagers and drops again in adults.

I don't remember this, but my mom told me when I was 3 I had a couple weird moments. My grandfather passed fairly shortly before I was born. One time I asked my mom if she remembered the accident, she said what accident, I said remember, when I was the dad and you were the kid and we went off the road into the ditch? Apparently my mom was with my grandpa going somewhere when they drive into a ditch from a blow-out when she was a kid. That is the only car accident my mom ever had been in. The other thing happened a couple weeks later, I was playing with my toys, got up, walked to the sliding glass door started waving and said "bye-bye grandpa". Nothing ever happened after that.

I don't think my mom would lie about something like that, so I can't help but believe my grandpa came to see me before moving on to wherever that may be.

Unless I'm mistaken they've proven you can detect being watched. When I was little I'd be playing in my room and suddenly the creepiest feeling would come over me. Once in a great while I'd hear my name said extremely loud in my head. To this day if I'm on the pc or watching tv, not even thinking about much, suddenly I'll get the feeling like some one's staring at me, followed by weird creepy images that rush into my head. It's the weirdest #.

I never actually believed in "ghosts" until we moved to our current residence when I'm watching tv with my wife, us both on the couch, from the couch you've a straight shot down the hallway. So I'm just sitting there and look over at her to say something or something, and when I look over there's a person standing at the end of the hallway. It was like my brain didn't know how to register it. I began breathing heavy, almost passed out. I could vividly see they were wearing a red shirt but couldn't see legs. I looked away too quick to see the face. I looked over, saw it, looked away. My brain just didn't know what to do, and it was the weirdest feeling. Had it been a criminal lol I think we'd been screwed. About a year after we'd lived here we discovers dried blood on that bedroom door, on the bathroom door, and in a few spots on the walls. The doors are dark wood, so wasn't easy to see. I discovered it by mistake on day when I was doing a number 2, Ho Ho Ho. Also for about the first year the cats stayed away from that back room for what ever reason. I'm still not sold on "ghosts" though, but it was certainly strange.
