I thought I would do a post on the subject of children seeing spirits as I can't believe how many of you are experiencing it or worry about it. I can't understand why, in this day and age, it still seems a taboo subject to talk about - but I think it is something that needs to be.
If your child/baby (there's no age too young for it to start) is seeing things that you can't - DONT BE AFRAID! If they pick up your feeling about it, then they will be scared too. It's no bad thing, in fact, gifted children are a blessing.
Most of the time, it is harmless - just family members dropping by to see they little one, and it doesn't seem to bother the kids. In fact, my daughter loves when her great-grandparents visit - she smiled and talks to them more than I usually get! If they seem happy, then leave them to it. It's a stage they will normally grow out of (sadly in my opinion.)
If however it is causing concern for whatever reason, then I hope can provide some tips to help. Sometimes, if your child is a bit older, then they can suddenly find things that they used to be fine with, a bit scary. This isn't always because they are seeing someone unpleasant, but because they are old enough to realise that something isn't quite right. It's human nature to be afraid of what we don't understand, and when you have only just figured out how to poo and eat at the same time, the spirit world can be pretty daunting. In this case, then chances are it is a family member who means no harm, and the easiest thing to do is just talk to them. Sure, you may feel stupid talking to thin air, but they will understand - just ask them not to visit when your trying to get little one to sleep, for example.
In a few cases however, there will be unpleasant characters poping in, that may scare your child. Dont freak out, and I would hesitatae at doing anything drastic, like an exorcism or something along those silly lines. In my experence, if you bring someone in who doesn't know hat they are doing, it can make things much worse.
First step I would recomend would be to get a Witches Ball/Spirit Ball. These are glass baulbauls, like crimbo decs that you hang by your childs bed. They atrract and capture nasty energy, freeing the space from it's negativity. They are simple and affective, and all you have to do is wash it in just water every few months to renew it and wash away anything trapped.
If that is having a hard time coping on it's own, then call in some help. Again, you may fee stupid, but it's not like passed family members have a busy timetable! My neice was having awful nights waking screaing because of something in her room, and I ordered a Witches Ball, ut it took agaes to arrive. In the meantime, my sister-in-law called on her dad in spirit, to come and 'patrol' the house and stop things getting in that shouldn't. It worked, she heard hm arrive, and my neice was fine from that point on. Now she has the Witches Ball up in the nursery, no more prolems.
I hope this will help anyone who is concerned, or just give people the heads up on how to hadle it if it should happen. Don't be afraid to ask for help or talk about it - it's not as unsual as we think it is.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in contact.
Love to you all xxx
