My daughter is now 13 years old, I would say before she could speak/explain she saw spirits she would often gaze at nothing, laugh at the wall and when she could talk would say baba pointing (at nothing we could see) always in the same area on the landing. When she was just over 2 she pointed in the street asking why the lady was walking funny, "she's got no legs"! Then nothing really for years.
When she turned 11 and started secondary school she started seeing spirits every week or so mainly at home but also the odd one at school or out and about.
We've had a lady from the local spiritualist church visit as she was very shaken by a particular one she described as evil she stopped dressing in her bedroom as she felt she was being watched and was woken early hours one night with him leaning over her in bed. We were told he was a resident and not a nice man and was moved on.
She had started seeing them more and more several a day sometimes several at once and is really struggling it breaks my heart I can't help her, she's my baby girl and I can't do anything to take it all away for her.
We recently went on holiday to Spain, so far she had never experienced anything whilst on holiday (she says holidays are her escape) and she saw 2 all the time at the villa we were staying in.
We had another lady from the spiritualist church visit to remove a few other spirits that seemed to be tormenting her (making loud noises, tapping on windows behind her and chasing her down the stairs) who spoke in-depth with us and explained to her this will never go away and that she should help them as that's all their visiting her for. She has told 2 children to go to the light and feels inside herself that they did. Then there was a little boy she told several times to go to the light and he wouldn't move, I think this has really knocked any confidence she was starting to gain. She also says she could never tell a grown up to go to the light at this stage. She also has been told many times to shout at them to leave her alone this is something she also can't bring herself to do.
Last night she cried her eyes out begging for it to stop. She said she doesn't want this she doesn't want to help them she wants to feel normal and not scared all the time. She had tried closing down so many times but it doesn't seem to work for her.
Worryingly over the last few months she keeps telling me she feels sad. This sadness appears to come from nowhere one minute she's fine then her whole facial expression changes and I know she's going to tell me she's got the sad feeling and she can't shake it.
I have asked her if moving house would help her (we moved here 4 years ago) and she said it's not the house it's her it wouldn't matter where she lived.
I would be so grateful for any help or advice that can help my daughter. Thank you, Sheila x
