My Psychic 5 Year Old And How To Handle?


I would like to share some of the story about my son. I could probably write a book, but I will try to keep it short and sweet.

I have 3 boys of my own, but the one that is the focus of my short story is different than any child I have ever encountered. My other 2 boys are pretty "regular".

My 5 year-old, well, he said his first word at 6 months of age and was talking complete sentences before his first birthday. He was "different" in many ways. One, you could actually reason with him when he was just a little baby, better than you can reason with a 5 or 6 year old. Never had tantrums, terrible twos, etc. I didn't have to baby-proof the house. He didn't get into anything that wasn't okay for him without even being told.

When he was 15 or 16 months old, he began speaking of what I believe to be a past life. He told me that he missed the mommy he had before me. He called her "mommy with the red hair". He said he was the oldest boy and had to care for many babies. He said that a flood came and the mommy wasn't home, he ran into a closet with the babies, shutting the door behind him to keep the water from getting in. His idea didn't work, water was pouring in, babies were crying and that is all he remembers. Then I became his new mommy.

When he was 20 months old he saw a photo of Hitler in the book store. He stopped, stared, wrinkled his nose and said "That is a very bad man - he hurt many people". I asked him how he knew that bit of information and he said "everyone knows Hitler is a bad man". I NEVER uttered anything about Hitler to my son and he was not in daycare so I can't imagine where that could have come from other than a memory from his past. His long, long past.

When he would see old movies for the first time he would tell me he remembered it for a long time ago. When he was watching movies with his "mommy with the red hair"

Moving on to what is going on with him now. My sister died several days before his 5th birthday. One day after her funeral he asks me while driving in the car "Mommy, how come I can still hear my aunt speaking to me if she is dead?" I asked him how he knew it was her and he said "Well, nobody has a voice like hers, so it has to be her." I asked what she was saying. And he proceeded on relaying info to me that was true and accurate but there was no way he knew. Some of the things I didn't even know about, but when I spoke to some others I found out they were true. The she told him "I cannot talk anymore" and "I am going now" and that was the end of that. He has not "heard" from her since.

In the past few weeks he has been having odd symbolic-type nightmares that I am scared might be of a psychic nature. He also had what he called a "strong thought that seemed real" while he wasn't sleeping. He described (in detail that made sense) a fire spreading through our home. Where it started, how it spread, where everyone was and that daddy couldn't get to my 2 youngest boys because the flames were against daddy's bedroom door. He said only me, daddy and my oldest son were alive after-wards.

After that "Strong thought" he had, he asked me to unplug pretty much everything in the house. He is particularly concerned with computers. He wants them all off at the power strip unless they are being used. He wanted me to relocate the fire extinguisher upstairs. I complied pretty well, but last weekend (when the rest of us were not home) my husbanded reported a burning smell coming from his power strip and said it felt WAY too hot, so he threw it away and bought a new one. Hmmm...

I won't get into the recent dreams he had too much since the "rules for posting" said not to discuss dreams. All I will say is they scare me and I feel they contain strong symbolic messages.

The last 2 nights my back door has swung open between 1am-6am (on 3 separate times) all on its own even though it was most certainly locked. My son seems very concerned about it. So now, in light of recent events over the last few weeks, this is all scaring me. I am so afraid he is picking up on something very negative that is happening or will happen. I don't want to question him and scare him worse than he is already scaring himself. So, I am thinking of a way to figure out what it is and what I can do to help. I don't know what the deal is with the door opening, but I don't like it. It has a deadbolt!

Honestly, I am super scared that someone is going to die. I cannot express that to him though. He is very sensitive and he is still upset about the loss of his aunt. Or, maybe the loss of his aunt is making him have the dreams, fears of death, etc. I just don't know, but there is still the door thing, and reoccurring dreams that are symbolic of death? He wouldn't even know that those dreams would mean that.

So, in conclusion - has anyone here had a similar experience with a child or as a child? If so, how did you deal with it in a way that worked out well? I don't want to take my boy to therapy of any sort because I am scared they will say he is crazy because he "hears voices". And yes, my sister isn't the only voice he has heard. He has been hearing voices since around his 3rd birthday. Stuff like, we were looking at some hieroglyphics and he told me a voice "popped in his head" and told him the meaning but it didn't help him understand much since half the words he didn't recognize. Then he wanted me to put my ear against his ear and listen because maybe I would understand the words:) He couldn't figure out why I couldn't hear it in my had too. I told him some people just can't hear stuff like that and others can.

Thank you!

I have been googling and came across your story so I joined so I could post.:) I apoligize for jumping on your post, but they have blocked all new submissions due to volume.

I don't have a psychic bone in my body or any other abilities, however I know my son does (he is 10 now, but experiences go back to infancy). I am looking for ways I can encourage and help him develop and hone his gifts. He has never been scared or felt threatened by his experiences. I also would like to find out a way to connect him with other kids his age having the same experiences.

I don't want to detract from the original post so in a nut shell I know he sees ghosts, or sometimes he just senses them but can't see them (he tells me my dead father is riding in the car with us, today he said his dad from his past life was in the classroom with him-sensed him) he hears them (although he says he can't understand them-they talk too fast and they have squeaky voices), he talks about his dad from a past life (he comes and sits on his bed at night and reads to him-I think this is in his dreams because he says he is asleep), he has told me things were going to happen and they have (car accidents, tornadoes), he reads my mind all the time-I cannot surprise him! One day he told me that while he was still in me to told me what to name him (I had never heard his name before/am not religous AT ALL and the name just popped into my head one morning. There are so many more (after 911 we had a "man" in our dining room for three days-I believe he was seeing a victim who had or was dying).

I have always encouraged him to talk about what he is experiencing and have always suppored him. He usually blurts things out of the blue and will talk at great length, but then he doesn't say anything for months.

Other than being there for him and supporting him, what can I do; or how can I connect him with others his own age that also have these amazing abilities? (he has reading/writing disabilities so email/chat rooms will be more challenging.

Thank you for any direction you can steer me in.

Your son is absoulutly amazing. I remember things from past lives, mostly deaths, or battles, people I was especially close with. Your son is intensly gifted, and I would, in a way, try to relate with him, try to make him feel accepted, and let him and his psychic powers grow. If you have not known anyone with gifts, it will be a little more difficult, but psychic powers are a fairly large piece of a person. I myself am psychic, and when my powers died dwon, a fair bit I might add, I felt lost. Like a piece of me was missing, but they're coming back. And your son has to be able to feel accepted, at such a young age your acceptence is SO important. I had my first psychic experience when I was three, but m mind surpressed the memory until I was older. I know I'm a stranger, but trust me he needs to know he'll always be accepted b at least one person, because a lot of people don't except the psychic community, and it would help your som a lot to know his mom excepts him. My Nana and my older friend except me the most, but some things are still unexcepted. Hope I've helped, and could you read my story? Confused psychic. I'd appreaciate your opinion!

you mentioned your son remembers his previous death. Well, I can remember some of my past lives too. I remember the trail of tears and world war II. They are just blurs or "clips" of a movie. I was in history class this year and I was able to recall some of the names of the dictators in WWII (ive never studied it before). I had never heard of these names but they kind of just popped into my head. Its hard to explain. But for example I'll see an old picture and it will look very familiar and I'll remember a cretain smell or feeling. Just let your son know you believe him and understand him. My mom has always thaught I was strange. Even when I was little and I would tell her I was seeing someone in the corner of my room she would say it was just a dream or come up with some rational explination. Eventually I pulled away and stopped telling her. Don't let that happen with you and your son.

just a suggestion, I don't know much on the topic, but maybe try looking up indigo and crystal children. Very interesting stuff. Your son sounds very gifted

Heidi in Texas, You said you wanted examples. My husband at 4 years old saw an old man which scared him. He's seen dark shadows, people in other time periods walk through walls and pass through him through the years. Some want to talk. You mentioned having a filling. As a mom I had one filling of death at my door. This one was quite different I could not shake it. I changed my daughters trip and her life was spared. I've had dreams and smelled smoke when I felt death near to family/friends which transpires 2-3weeks later. I usually pray and focus energy toward whom it may affect when shown specifics. There has been devine intervention! You as an individual can pray/meditated 5-10min and ask for confirmation that it is truly what you personally perceive. You can pray/visualize protection with all your children leading them in a simple prayer. Play soft melodic music this will set a peaceful atmosphere. Read childrens books that speak of peace/unity. Believe it or not this will raise their vibrations. If you son is troubled by dream in am. Have him draw a picture even if its just scribly colors, plus explain dream. Do in same location. He will have a place to open and close the worry's behind him. At which point you can pray or imagine the dream floating up into creator in basket or ballon. Angels hands and imagine, protection all around family/home/school. I do a bubble of dark each day. Never underestimate a moms intuition, you are logical and investigative in your endeavors. Blessings

Hi Heidi,
Read your story! Your son is a little person whom is just like my husband whom is 55 years old. His ability came from his grandfather then to him mum. His mom and father let him be a little boy. His mother confirmed when he heard/saw spirits speak to him as you do saying it was ok and that not every hears or sees. Good job! Your sister had unfinished business so she relayed what she needed and moved on to the other side. It is frightening to the child and alarming to the parent. Since this type of life is quite different. Your son hearing languages is normal, same as my husband. My husband saw many a deceased person, many want help, some are negative. But your son like my husband are strong willed people of destiny. The dreams as you said are subconscious symbols. Your son being awake and seeing is quite normal: The mind/consciousness can raise to see and sense the past and present (time). I do agree with you he could use a rest. Providing him with Protection symbol of a Dream catcher, or praying using visualization of Angels or a temple/Tee-pee over the house, can keep out all unwanted visitors. The unwanted visitors are attracted to the light in your son. There will come a time he will know he can just shut out the spirit world at will. Hope this is helpful...blessing!

I know this is a blatant thing to say when you are seeking advice but try searching different keywords in Google!
Your son sounds like a replica of my granddaughter.
She often hears voices, but not to the extent of your son.
Well done, he is truly talented.

Wow. You have an EXTREMELY gifted son. As for what you can do I suggest doing a little research and above all else, listen. That's the best thing to do. I would believe everything he says. I'm only 14 and am hardly psychic so I'm not sure how to help with the dreams. Maybe some of the more experienced people around here can help with that.

The fact that he can remember his past life at such a young age is incredible. I can only remember one memory but I won't go into that.

Good luck and remember to be very open and listen to him.

God bless you and your family

This is amazing I have never heard of this before. As for your worry I would say if your scared someone is going to die, try staying away from home for a while. Take the kids to their grandparents or go on a "vacation" to your local hotel.

Wow, that's amazing. I've never heard of a psychic ability like that. Basicly, just support him and help him to the best of your abilities. Thats just what I say. ❤

Hi, It seems as if your son is very strong with his a gift, and at such a young age. The biggest thing you can do is to support him, and make sure you tell him that he isn't alone. Meditation will help to develop his gift. I personally have found that it helps. Another thing I want to add is that sometimes dreams don't always mean what the images in the dream show. Like some objects mean different things sometimes. Interpreting the dreams is always the hardest part for me.
Hope I helped,

He obviously has abilities and I think you should support him the best you can. I know its not easy but you will always have support.

Hi Heidi, Sounds like you've got your hands full. Check out Psychic Kids on A&E. Maybe they could help you out.

There is a popular book I came across that I wish my parents had read when I was a little boy who was clearly "different". Elaine Aron, author of The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Child. "exta" sensory perception is kind of a misnomer (ESP)'s more like "high sensory perception", or in somecases--like myself "ultra-sensitive". I think this is a good read because it talks about a). Highly sensitive people as "normal" b). The historical significance and cultural importance of such people and c). A framework for you to understand what his world is/will be like a little bit better. It's a not a "psychic" book, but this is the point where accepted research and "ESP" ability become converge. I hope this helps, other's will have a wealth of knowledge to share with you.:) Tom.

Instead of starting off with the "your son is very special" stuff that most people would say first, I'm going to skip to the point. Before you do anything, ask him to tell you if this really starts to bother him. I found out from my mother that I was above-average smart and had a few bizzare, un-child-like attributes when I was little, although not to THAT extent, but I think now that I would have liked it better if I had a parent I could tell these things to. Like your son, when I was maybe five or six, I had a few memories of other parents (although the images were blurry) and them talking to me what felt like a long time ago. I just never asked my "real" parents about it because, even that young, I felt like I shouldn't say anything about it or as if it MIGHT be accurate, but found out later that none of it could be true of my current parents.

I guess all of this is really like a "what could happen" response based from personal experience. For both the sake of your child and my sanity, encourage him to talk to you about this stuff. I know right now that it will be overwhelming, but if he grows up and forgets that he can tell you, things will only get worse. He'll feel like he should keep secrets and that he can't tell you things. He may even feel like it would be a burden for you to know.

As far as this "dark presense" goes; don't let it be ignored, but don't be overaware. I had some freaky demon-ish thing with me for years, always sensing when it was around and on the verge of being able to see it, before I got help from here telling me what it was and how I might get rid of it. Don't be too afraid and it might get bored. It's obvious your son will be more sensitive to it, so keep a close eye on him. The thing might leave, it might not. If it doesn't, I'd suggest posting another story focusing on that to get some different opinions and solutions.

One last thing: Calm down. Yeah, it's freaky. Yeah, it can be scary. But don't let this rule over your lives. Even psychics can't be sure of the future, but that doesn't mean we should stop trying to improve it. Like I said, let your son know he can come to you. He'll understand, I know he will, and it will be better for both of your in the long run. Just make sure he knows the difference between telling you and telling others. Not everyone can give a mother's love.

Mrs. Heidi,

I can tell you know that, your son is very gifted. From the sounds of it he is a clairaudio and a precognition. A precognition is someone who basically can see the future, and a clairaudio is someone who can hear the dearly departed. The clairaudio is one sense of medium ship. From the sounds of it he may have had a couple of past lives. Something to reasearch is an Indigo child, that is possible that he may be one. Once he is old enough you may want to have him meditate to devlope his abilites, or he may do it now. I've actually have heard of people whom have asked their abilites to leave, and they have. So maybe if he decideds when he is older not to like his abilites, it is possible that, that is an option.

Best of luck to you and your son and your family,
