When we were little our sitter liked to tell us creppy stories and play"games"with us. One of these games being light as a feather swift as aboard. Yeah i know she was a peach. Well anyway it never worked for her. One day my older siblings tried it on me, just us. I was arround 6 at the time. They floated me off the floor, quickly dropped me and ran from the room. I recall being confused at their reaction and thinking wasn't this what we were trying to do all this time. Not really a comformation of a paranormal expirience or was it..?

the thing with imaginary friends is modern, at least in my culture WE NEVER HAVE THAT! ... so it has to be something with the western countries and the things u eat... lol
I mean, I am more than 30 y old, how many families I know... countless.. we never had that! Not even in our urban legends. Its different to say that ur kid can see spirit world and different to say that ur kid have an imaginary friend.

About a week ago he was wondering about the universe and gave his explanation.
He said that there is not just one universe but there are many.
When I asked him to elaborate he said that the worlds are laying eggs.
And sometimes when there are a lot of eggs, it will 'split, or divide' and so on...

So why the thinking that spirits, or things kids see, or say are weird? They just haven't been conditioned by the BS and negativity of adult thinking yet, but that does change in time for many.
I was tucking in my two-year-old," said user 'UnfortunateBirthMark'. "He said 'Goodbye dad.' I said, 'No we say good night.' He said, 'I know. But this time it's goodbye." "Had to check on him a few times to make sure he was still there," the startled parent added.
The Reddit user 'thingsimeanttobe' posted this comment: "My five-year-old at the time had night terrors and would scream in her sleep. One night I said 'mama's here it's okay'. She looked right at me still asleep and screamed 'mama? But who is that behind you?'"
User 'Abluesxs' said she asked her son: "What's the best way to get a girlfriend?" The response: "Tell her to be my girlfriend or she'll never see her parents again."
The user 'Like-I-was-sayin' described his three-year-old daughter's chilling comment about her newborn brother: "[She] looked at him for a while then turned and looked at me and said, 'Daddy, it's a monster we should bury it'."

My son once asked me,
"Mommy, does the dead man in the basement scare you?"
I was flabbergasted. Our house is only two years old, and he was about four at the time. I asked him why he thought there was a dead man in the basement and he just shrugged.
Then he told me, "Don't worry. The dead man only wants to play Nintendo. He won't hurt us."
Now what do you say to that?

My 4 year old godson talks about his friend "John" all the time. No one in his family or friends knows a John who could have possibly come into contact with him, even though it's a common name, there are no Johns that come around. Plus even if there were, my godson talks about John as if he is only in his room and in his dreams. His mom gave him some paint and a piece of paper and then she started to paint a flower. He started his own painting with several different colors carefully placed around in a pattern. I asked him what he was drawing, he immediately said "A spirit world." I said, "Oh, how do you know what a spirit world looks like?" he said, "John showed me." We all just looked at each other funny and he continued to draw his spirit world.

Having had paranormal experiences myself, and having heard many stories over the years from family members and people I trust completely, I am convinced these things exist. With that said, when I was younger I saw a person that no one else could see, and I have heard similar things within my own family with other small children. Plus this seems to be reported by people around the world. It is my opinion that children are more "in tune" or apt to see things like this mainly because they have not been told these things do not exist. That is sort of a poor reason, but it may be part of what is going on.
