I have a nephew whose father passed away a year and a half ago and we've seen him looking at the ceiling and laughing and we believe he is seeing his deceased father. They do say that children see more than adults do.

My son Zachary passed away 4 years ago and my daughter has never met him and i've had young babies in my house before my daughter was born none of them has ever seen anything or pointed at odd things before, now that my daughter is around she points at the ceiling and laughs she talks at the walls all the time and we belive that our son is in our house to play with our daughter he 's not around when the other kids are around, it could be possible that your child is seeing something or someone good or bad, if she is afraid then i would see about smudging your house, if not then there should not be anything to worry about.

you could ask her what the 'yucky' looks like. my daughter had a spell where she was scared of her room. turns out it was a monkey at the end of her bed. i don't know why it was a monkey because she has no monkey dolls and we don't watch anything scary and im pretty sure we don't watch anything with monkey's in it. they monkey seemed to disappear within a few days after us discussing it and me letting her know that everything was ok. someone told me to make a "monster" kit. put glitter and water with a bit of lavender oil in a spray bottle as the 'monster spray' that she can spray around the room. a flash light to scare the 'monster' away, and a stuffed animal or some other special item that is a safe 'friend' that can help. i never discussed monsters with my daughter. i was afraid of putting the idea in her head. i never mentioned looking under the bed or in closets. i just asked her what she was afraid of. what did it look like. where was it. etc. we also added a few new night lights in her room. the first time she introduced the concept of a monster, i asked her if it was big or little. we decided that the big ones get a kick in the knee and the little ones get stomped on. we haven't had a monster problem since far as her seeing spirits. i guess it depends on what you believe. if it's scaring her....i don't know what to say there. maybe just talk with her about it. if you've had someone pass you could alway show her pictures of people and ask her if it's these people that she's seeing.

Ask her what she sees. Sometimes just telling you about it will make her feel better. Don't tell her that it's nothing, though because, as someone else mentioned, kids see things we don't. You could try telling her to tell the yucky to go away this is HER house and it's not welcome.

If you are concerned about spirits/ghosts/negative energy then you should smudge the house. My son said there was a man on his ceiling and wouldn't stay in his room at night. Since we smudged the house he is completely fine with staying there at night and playing in there during the day!

He was also waking up saying monsters were looking in his window. I told him that we didn't let monsters in the house and our dog would scare them away if they came in. He told me nice monsters should be allowed so we made a "No mean monsters allowed" sign and hung it on our door. He hasn't had a problem since.

Good luck and keep us updated on what you do and what works!!

Well it depends on what you believe, but children are very in tuned to spirts/ghosts and maybe she sees something there. Is it always the same spot or same room? If its all over the place she may be talking to shadows or just imagining it. I bet you get some interesting answers for this one lol
