hi there everyone,
firstly, so glad i have found ATS. it sounds like just the place i need for some help, guidance, and fresh ideas for a matter i am very unsure
it is regarding my 4 yr old daughter, and various powers that she has been showing from a very early age.
before she could talk, she always seemed to follow things around the room that we could not see.
there was also occurances of things being moved or dropped that would not possibly have been touched, like items on her cot mobile would be found
untied and laying in the cot with her, or books falling off a shelf when she was in her cot in the room on her own.
we didnt think anything unusual at this point, but it really started to become clear that she either had others unseen around her, or she had contact
with people from somewhere else.
I am very open minded, and feel that what she has been given is a gift. i really dont want her to lose these gifts she has, and would be curious to
hear what people think, and any ideas on what we could do to encourage her to continue their use. please be constructive in replys, as i really am not
opening this thread up to discuss if this is fake, or to discuss if these gifts are real or something else. i just want to hear back from people that
can give constructive advise on what we can do to encourage her.
here is a few examples of the many many occurances we have had.
1. while driving down a road which has a lot of traffic lights down it, we seemed to get caught at everyone on red. she was 2 years old at the time,
and was just getting to grips with how traffic lights control the traffic, asking questions about the order of the lights, and what they mean. (she is
intelligent for her age by the way). she then told me to go, and sure enough, at that exact moment, the traffic light turned to green... nothing
unusual there, bit of a fluke. then at the next set of lights, we caught it again on red, and after about 5 seconds, she shouted GO and again, at that
moment, the light changed again to green... this happened 5 times in a row at every traffic light we got stopped at. nothing much on its own, but when
linked in with everything else, becomes freaky.
2. she always talks about her nanny, who comes to visit her in her bedroom. you will sometimes hear her laugh at bedtime, and when we ask her what she
is laughing at, she will tell us nanny was playing with her. she also tells us that nanny tells her stories, and also looks after her at night
time.... we have also been told of others that come and talk with her, but nanny is the dominant one. oh, and nanny died 10 years before she was
3. when we were once looking through some old family photos, she was sat on our knee, also looking. when a picture of her nanny came up, she instantly
recognised her. this would have been the first time she would have seen a pic of her nan, and we have no pics of her around the house. this made us
stop and think.
4. one time, when she was in the bath, she started telling me the story of a boy called billy. i always remember her exact words on this, as it came
so out of the blue. here is her story while sat in the bath.
abigail - i'm pretending to be Billy...
me - who's Billy
abigail - he is a boy that works in the fields
me - how old is billy?
abigail - he is 9 years old. he works in the fields where it is very hot
me - is billys parents with him?
abigail - only his mum.. but then the bad men came along at put billy in a ditch like this...
(at this point she then rolled onto her front in the bath, face just above the water, arms still at her side, just laying as still as anything)
i then decided it was maybe time to change the subject. it sounded very much like some kind of slavery story, but this is not the sort of thing we
allowe her to watch on telly or such like, so this is something she has been fed, or has made up. coming from a very innocent 4 year old, i would not
think this is something she could imagine.
5. going back to nanny, we were once at my partners sisters house, and we were talking about the visits she gets from nanny, and abigail came walking
into the room. now nanny is not normally a topic of discussion, as she passed away ten years ago, and she is not in thoughts so much as a topic to
discuss. abigail then just offered up some proof that it is nanny she talks to. "she only has 4 fingers" she said... is that right said her mum..
"yes... she has a finger missing on this hand (holding up her right hand)"... my partner and her sister looked at each other and went white. nanny
lost a finger on her right hand in a machine accident at work a few years before she passed away. even i didnt know this fact. its not the sort of
thing you talk about.
6... one night, my partner and i were both on our laptops, telly on some drivel in the background, and abigail came down after not being able to
sleep. she just sat down on the sofa next to me, watching the TV. it was some TV phone in betting show that was on, with a roulette game. 2 said my
daughter, and after about 30 seconds of the ball rolling around, the number 2 came out. then on the next game she says 7, and sure enough the number 7
dropped into place... this freaked us out, and made us pay attention... on the next roll, she says 3... and the number 19 came out, so we thought to
ourselves, hmmm, not that good then lol. next number started to roll, and she called out 5....... then the number 35 came out... that was both her
previous calls put together. our chins hit the floor. she then decided it was time for bed, and off she toddled.
there has been so many cases and examples, and i would be here all night giving all the details of what has happened.
she is also a very polite, caring loving child. always forgiving, and always concerned about others. we have even had people cross the street to us,
or approach us in shops just to tell us how beautiful she is. this isnt that normal is it?
anyway, i did a little research into things on the net, and came accross the terminology for crystal children. she does fit into this in nearly every
way, but we are not sure for certain, or even if this is a credible line of thought.
we feel that what she has is a gift, and we want to encourage her to explore things to any length she feels comfy with, but with no pressure.
so, this is where you lot come into it.....
should we approach anyone for advice or for a meeting?
how can we encourage her without pressure?
is this common or rare to this extent?
any thoughts or input greatly appreciated, as we really do not know what to do, and could do with some clear unbiased thinking on this matter.
many thanks, and i look forward to discussing this with you all
