7 year old & a ghost

Desserae - posted on 09/11/2012 ( 8 moms have responded )




My 7 year old has been afraid to sleep in his room since he was born. I thought maybe he got to used to sleeping in my bed but since he has gotten older it has gotten worse. He says he talks to his great grandfather(who has been dead for almost 20 years) & when he found out he was dead he cried as if he was really close to him. He predicted my friend's pregnancy & my brother being shot months in advance. He recently started talking about a man in his room. He says the man wants him to go outside to find "treasure". Last night he told me the man walks around his room and moves stuff. I'm so lost and don't know what to do.

Hey Desserae,

I do readings and um sometimes also connect with those that have passed. You can go either 2 ways here, either to embrace that your son has a natural gift or attempt to quash it. If you attempt to quash it then your son will grow up thinking that there is something wrong with him and attempt to supress it even further which will then become an internal conflict with himself!!!

but if you embrace it then he will be able to accept this side of himself easier only thing is peoples ignorance that don’t believe won’t accept it and perceive it to be abnormal. Point being what is more important here. That your son believes and accepts himself or other peoples perceptions!!!

His grandfather is obviously watching over him so that’s a bonus his in good hands.

If you choose to go in the direction and embrace your sons gift. Explain and reassure him that his grandfather (pops) may have passed in body but not in spirit and that pops is there to watch over him. As for the man that is in his room, this may be some one that lived in the house prior and is rearranging stuff to his liking. I would suggest that if your son is uncomfortable with this man, get your son to nicely ask him not to visit. Also it may be an idea to smudge the room with sage every so often(this is what the native American’s would do to clear negative energies) Treat spirits as you would do a physical bodied person as some don’t actually realise that they have passed.

But don’t worry to much your son is very normal. Arm yourself with books like insights by Sylvia Browne or Spirited by Tony Stockwell to help you understand your son more.You never know you might just start to open up more yourself!!! =)

I think that's kind of cool that your child may in fact "have a gift" however, what worries me is that you said the man wants him to "go outside to find treasure". My first thought is, what if he actually follows those directions b/c he feels compelled to do so? For your sake I hope he does find a treasure! But what if the man is an evil spirit and something bad happens? What if it's not a ghost at all, but it's a split personality, good vs. bad conscious type of thing? I don't mean to scare you, and I hope I did not offend you... but the safety and well-being of your son should be your #1 priority. If you and your family aren't into the supernatural world, I would use extreme caution when dealing w/this situation. It could very well be a "gift", or just a phase, but it could also be something else...

Hi Desserae, You are not lone in this. I would like to share my and my childs experiences with you. Your child has a gift. When I was a little girl I was scared of the bedroom across from mine (where my mom did her hair and makeup every morning) I never wanted to go in there and when I did I would run in and run out. Since I was about 3 maybe was when I would see things that I could not explain. It can be scary for a child that doesnt understand whats happening. I am now 27 and still have experiences. I dont see things as much as I used to but still do every now and then. But all kinds of crazy things have happened to me in my old apt and in the house we just bought recently. My oldest son now 11 was scared of his bedroom when he was 4 (his room was the room i was scared of as a child) i could relate to how he felt because i felt that way as a child. Soon after that we moved into our own apt. In that apt he was also scared, he said clothes in his closet would move back and forth and toys would go off on their own. After we moved into this apt things would happen almost everyday for the next 5 years. I wouod be standing in my kitchen and feel someone touch my shoulder,I would wake up in the morning to find glasses smashed in my dish strainer where they were drying, my stereo would turn on blasting @ 3am, my mini dirt devil vaccum would turn on alone. Then I had another baby boy. He started having his experience @ 1 yr old. First experience..he woke up crying @ 3 am pointing in his closet (where his toys were) i fugured he wanted to play so i said go to sleep and we will play in the morning. @ 6am he awoke screaming again, this time when I got to his room i found his crib full of toys and to this day I dont have an explanation for it. There are many other experiences i can share if you would like to email me and maybe they can help you. I would post them here but this is getting long already but one more thing i will share with you is the "man" your son see's. My son also speaks of a man (my 4 yr old) he says he see's him in his room and he is watching him. He says he has black eyes. My son doesnt act sared when he tells me about this man. He has also told his nana while they were outside playing that the man was standing by the snowmobile trailor watching him play. One night he called me downstairs in his room sometime between 1and 3 am. I stood in his doorway and asked what was wrong and he said " Mommy that man is in my room again" I said "where is he baby?" he says "hes right where your standing mommy" that was the only time i felt scared. I went in his room hugged him and kissed him and told him its ok. I have talked to someone about this "man" and from everything i told them they beleive it is someone connected to me or my family because of the toys in his crib as a baby(they were trying to comfort him because he wanted to play) and because not only my kids but i have experienced this my whole life. i wish you luck with everything and if you need to talk about it im here, I understand what your going through just message me ;0)

My mum is very spiritual and she says if you think something is there that makes you uneasy you ask it to leave politely. My mum also has lots of spooky stories including my older sister as a child who saw ghosts. Me personally have always been open and never scared by ghosts but never experienced anything personally so I do believe that you've "got it" or you haven't! Maybe your son Is one of those that do.
