Could My Son Be A Medium?


My husband and I have always considered our youngest son, Gabriel 8 1/2 years old, a "free spirit". He truly walks to the beat of a different drum, and we love that about him. However, in the last couple of days he has shared some information with us that I'm not sure how to respond to.

It started with my husband returning home from a walk after dark. He came in excited and a little freaked because he said he had just seen a floating ball of light hovering near our neighbor's driveway, and then just disappear. He said he could not explain what he saw because that was no apparent source for this ball of light. Our kids were excited and curious about Dad's experience and decided to walk our dog the next morning around our neighbor's drive. Gabriel came back shaking and totally freaked out by what he had seen.

Here is his story as it was told to me: He saw a mirror image of him self (walking the dog), crossing the street about 15 feet up the street. He said that it was him wearing the same shirt, pants and shoes and that "he" was holding the leash with our dog was walking in front. When this mirror image got to the curb, it disappeared, first the dog, then the leash, and then the image of himself. He was truly shaken and I believe HE believed what he reported to me.

Okay, so now it gets even more interesting. I asked him has he ever seen anything like this before and he said he sees a man in our house. He describes his appearance and told me all the places he has seen him. He tells me he saw this man in our last 2 houses too. I asked when is the first time he remembers seeing him, he answers at his 4th birthday. He remembers sitting at the dinner table with his brother, my parents, and his dad and me. And the man sitting with us. I had to struggle to recall his 4th birthday, but he was completely accurate. He says the man feels like he is probably a nice person and he feels likes he wants to tell Gabriel hello and that he's not imagining seeing him. I asked if he has seen the man outside of home and he says he was at the state park where our family celebrated memorial day, sometimes hanging out at the top of the trees.

When Gabriel was about 2 1/2 years old, he told me when he was an angel in heaven, he looked down and choose me to be his mom. So I bring this topic up again today, and he does remember this memory. He went on to say that he was on top of the clouds with a couple of other angels and they were playing something like spin the bottle to choose their destination. He talked about how they communicated in a really high pitch, "kind of like dolphins" but not real words. Also he described how they didn't have full wings but "wing fins" that could lay flat when they're not flying. Lastly, he said he flew down through the roof, the top floor, middle floor to the bottom apartment and into my stomach. We moved from that apartment and into our first house when Gabriel was 15 months old.

I could use some advice on my next step, or if there needs to be a next step. I told my son that he may have a gift, a sixth sense, and shouldn't feel afraid. It's a blessing.

WOW! Your boy is amazing. It is true before we are born, we pick our parents together with the life experience. I always knew this but to read your child experiencing it definitely confirms it is true.

We do sit up there in the clouds and when a baby is about to be born and we want those parents and that life, that is when we "the soul" comes part of that baby (as soon as it takes its first breath).

Truly an inspiring story. ❤

In one of your earlier replies, I read that he sees a smoky, dark entity? That doesn't sound good. Anything that makes him feel uneasy needs to be removed from the home.

My husband calls things like that "shadow people." He has had a lot of experiences with them, and I will warn you, they are evil.

i agree with SunderMic all you can do is be there for him and listen to him as he gets older. ❤

well I just told my parents recently about my suspected gift. So my dad is calling someone who knows about this stuff for answers. I suggest you do that. I am kind of scared. But I know that I will be told if I'm a medium or not I hope I am. I kind of think I am. Mostly sure just need that other 10%. And I think that your son may have a gift. But calling someone who knows about this stuff will really help. You'll get a 100% true answer.
Best of Luck

I've been working with my son for protection which is very important with anyone who has experiences. I am still learning myself and have been experiencing things all my life as well. You can first teach him to wrap white light completely around him. Tell him to imagine a hose over his head. Out of this hose pours white light. (tell him to close his eyes and pretend its there- this does help) Tell him to take the white light that is pouring from the hose and wrap himself with it like a balloon then seal it completely under his feet. Tell him there should be no holes, completely sealed. Also have him repeat saint michael protection prayer with you. Found on internet. My son and I also carry black obsidian in our pockets day and night. This is a gem stone that protect from spirits attaching to you. Also, there is a book called spiritual cleansing by draja mickaharic which also teaches other methods.
I think he should talk to other people who do understand him, however, watch out at these fairs. Not all may be "real" psychics. I've never been to one, but just use extreme caution.

You might have to read this more than once; I had to and I wrote it. Ha:)

Regarding being not so open, this is something that can be practiced. Start small end small.
The way I've done it is either alone or with others more advanced than myself.
1.Sitting on a wood chair, feet flat on floor, relaxed, wearing comfortable clothing, nothing tight like belts, jewelry or such, and no particular hurry.
2. Concentrate or focus on just your body - each part. For example: your toes, then your feet, calves, work your way up to the top of your head or higher. Divide things up so that you are familiar with each part. Flex and then relax. Feel the energy flowing in and out with each breath and feel what it is like to be in your body.
3. Next expand to fill the room and feel what it is like to be the room the walls, the floor, the ceiling
4. Next expand to encompass the house, possibly the trees outside, the fence, the mailbox, whatever is out there.
5. Continue to expand your awareness as far as is comfortable.
Don't leave the solar system until you feel ready. Venus is a nice place to visit, the Hathor have a very nice library there, you'll know it by the many steps and very tall doorways/ceilings.
Some people decide to never even leave their neighborhood.
6. Now that you know what being BIG feels like, collapse back down to be within your body, at about the same rate that you expanded.
7. Make a concious effort to stay small.

I know a lot of deer hunters that do this automatically without even knowing what they are doing. Animals are very good at seeing auras; it keeps them from being eaten.
Staying within your body is like shutting off the porch light, it doesn't attract so many bugs.
This whole process can take anywhere from a few minutes (once trained) to an hour if you feel comfortable.
The first few times may be a struggle, he may feel sleepy or bored or like nothing is happening, but I get the feeling he will understand.
He can also contact his guides or higher self for help. It might also be a good idea to say a prayer to Archangel Michael for protection.
One other caution, if he gets good at this, I suggest shutting off your electric appliances, especially computers, watches and televisions or he might like learning to fix things. I just fixed this computer again, again, again,... Collapsing back down is somewhat like discharging a capacitor.
If the temp is near the dewpoint, I've also noticed it starts to snow or rain (outside) upon collapsing back down - kind of cool.
If you can find someone at the fair he feels a connection with they may be able to help him along.

Two other sources that may be good to google would be:
The Monroe Institute

You should be able to find more about me and these places from my other posts and stories here. I would like to suggest that you save the Merkaba stuff for him until he is older as it is pretty strong stuff.

Good Luck,

Oh, I forgot to address timetraveler. Peeking around the corner are the exact words my son has used to describe how he sees some entities in our house. He thinks that he sees past relatives, but he says it's more of a feeling that recognizing a face from photos. He sees Civil war soldiers outside in the trees. We live in the south, so that makes sense... I think. How do we make our house or gabe not so "open" as you say? And to Artine, Gabes's teachers have been urging me to have him evaluated for ADD/ADHD since kindergarten. Thanks Goodness I have resisted because I didn't want him to be labeled or medicated in to submission. Thanks for the affirmation!

Thank you to everyone who has responded to my story. Rebelboy, I just looked up doppleganger on wikipedia. That is really scary to me, as it pertains to my son. He has been sharing with me more of his sightings and physical sensations. Gabriel is such an amazing person, and although he tells me he's not frightened of his abilities, he asking me to find him someone he can talk with who understands this phenomenon. I will be taking him to a local pychic fair in a few weeks to have readings with mediums and physics. Does this sound like the right thing to do for him at this time? He doesn't like the dark, smokey appartion he sees regularly. He has been seeing him more and more for longer periods of time in the last week. He says that he doesn't know what this spitit wants and he's too afraid to look straight and him and "wait for a feeling" from the spirit. I'm waay over my head here... And Gabriel is only 8 years old. Suggestions, advice, and guidance would be appreciated.

I'm sorry I didn't offer any advice in my last post. You might want to look up the term doppleganger on wikipedia. It could be a very dangerous sign for your child. It's highly unlikely, but you might want to check it out just to be safe. Thanks for sharing!

To Gabesmom,
I think Artine and mystical2 give very good advice.
My three children also do this.
I have found that sometimes they are entities that have lived in the house before - we call them peekers because they peek around corners.
The second possibility is that they are deceased relatives. We found this out while looking through a photo album and our 4 year old said "There is the blue haired lady I saw floating outside the window..." He had told us about her at least six months earlier and in hindsight had described her perfectly from his point of view. You might try old photos as well, however, I would generally say that most people from heaven or wherever look about 30.
The third possibility is that it is just someone watching over him. I know this might sound weird but it could be himself from the future visiting his childhood or it could be his 'higher self' (some call it 'soul') checking in. Either way I think it is harmless.
I would like to echo what mystical2 said, just because someone (the visiter) is more evolved or intelligent doesn't necessarily make them good. Being too open can be like opening the front door of your home - you have little control over who comes in.
Sounds like he is a very old soul, nurture him well.
You can read about me from my bio or other posts to find out where I'm coming from.
Good luck,

Your son is beginning his life long gift. My son has started his recently as well. It is a gift and should be treated with care. As he gets older, let him know that if he abuses his gift, he can lose it. Heard of this. Unfortunately, my son saw bad before good. My advice, since your child is so young, is to talk to him and never doubt him. Ask many questions throughout his childhood. Keep a log book of each occurance. One good advice is to let him know, just like people, there is good in the spirit world as well as bad. If there is ever a time he does not feel comfortable, to walk away. But please do not put fear in him. Other good advice is to do research for cleansing. Psychic/mediums tend to be very sensitive soaking in different energy levels. There is a way to protect yourself from this. Too much negative energy causes pain. I'm older now and just learning this. Came from a family that kept everything hush hush.

Artine...could this have happened to me? I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. It is weird that I looked at your comment seeing I just joined this site. But they put me on medication and it almost destroyed what my mom called at the time, my "imagination". I think she is to blame if I had a gift and lost it, as my parents are southern baptists and do not believe or condone psychic experiences. I hope my story is published, as I need help with what I've experienced. There are too many "coincidences" in my life. I can't explain them. I see signs everywhere. I usualy don't know what they mean until the thing happens. I will submit my next story on this at a later time. Bless you for your comment.

I am glad that you, unlike many other parents did not make the mistake of saying this is "purely your imagination", as upon actually thinking of this notion: imagination never manifests in full-form in reality.

It is truly a blessing, and believe everything he says on these subjects, because they will be the truth.

Can he be a medium? Absolutely, and he is one already.

Next Step? Tell him not to be worried about seeing spirits, and to continue to develop his gift to communicate with them, as it is truly a blessing to do anything like this.

Also, I cannot express this enough; NEVER get him diagnosed for depression, ADD, ADHD, or anything of that sort, and NEVER treat him for any of those cases. Those diagnostics in his case, my case, and just about everyone on this site's' cases, will be faulty and untrue in every degree. Those assumptions come with the blessings.

Otherwise, like many other people in the world who have been treated for these faulty diagnostics (only the faulty ones, aka: they had a gift as well) lost their gift (s) entirely. And then they actually got those diseases/conditions described by the diagnostics.

You are a very good mother in my eyes. ❤

yes it truely is a blessing, there really isn't a next step I would say just be there for him and tell him to tell you anything else he see's if that helps him.

just that's all I can say help him by being there like you are now.
