Children are on a completely different plain than most adults and can see things that adults can't/won't see. My son, who is three now, used to sit
in his crib facing the corner and giggling at seemingly nothing. As he got older and learned to speak he began talking to "no one". I finally
decided to ask him who he was speaking to and he told me "Grandma". I said "Oh? Are you playing pretend with Meema (my wife's mother. Meema being
what my son calls her)". He said "No. I'm talking to your
mommy." This was a complete shock as my mother has been dead since 2001. I've seen
ghosts for years, but didn't think it was a genetic trait. For the hell of it, I decided to show him a picture of my mother (his grandmother). The
only picture I had of her at the time was one of her in the hospital. He said "No. That's not Grandma." I argued that the picture was
mother, and so if you're talking to her, then this is who you'd be seeing.
I ended up getting frustrated and dropped the subject.
A few months passed, and my wife and I were packing to move back to NC and we came across a photo album. We decided to flip through it before packing
it away and my son pointed to a photo and said "Grandma!". The photo was of my mother when she was 18 years old. This was an amazing shock that he
even recognized her.
In this pic she was skinny and young. The picture I had previously showed him was of my mother in the hospital when she was sick from cancer. She'd
gained about 200lbs during that time and was missing some of her hair. She was 44 in that photo. He didn't recognize her sick, but he knew her when
she was in her prime.
I've always found that comforting.
Before my son was born I found the pregnancy bittersweet. I was happy we were having a child, but saddened because he would never get to know his
grandmother. It brought me peace to know that she found a way to see and speak with him. He knew her name without my wife or I ever telling him.
However; my son didn't always see my mother. He often saw things he didn't like. Things that terrified him and left red marks on his arms. I'm a
spiritual person, but I don't claim anyone's faith as my own. My wife is a christian, but not a practicing one. Neither needed anyone else to tell
us that our son was being tormented by some negative spirit or force. My father, who is very much a shaman in his own right, came over to the house
and did a cleansing and then placed a silver coin with an engraving of St. Michael on it under my son's mattress. This seemed to do the trick. No
more marks. No more night terrors.
In regards to your son and his personal situation; have you tried speaking to someone about getting your home cleansed. Speaking with your son about
what he might be seeing or hearing might do well too. Don't approach it as a "crazy" thing whatever you do. Approach it with an open mind. Get your
son a journal and have him draw what he sees in it, write what he hears in it. Not all angry spirits are bad. Many are just desperate to be heard
and can get a bit frustrated. If these "spirits" are harming your son physically, Chamomile Spray may help him sleep and help sooth his headaches.
Chamomile is thought to ward off evil spirits. Just a thought.
On a side note; for those who think this must be a psychological problem because spirits aren't real; I've seen ghosts my entire life. Still do. So
much in fact that I don't even pay them attention anymore. Spirits are real. They are just conscious energy transitioning from one world to the
