Mom In Need


I have a son who is 13 years old who has stated that he has been seeing ghosts or spirits and is frightened by them. The only thing is I don't know how to or what to tell him to help him get through the night. Here's how it all began:

My husband left for Iraq on December 16th of last year; myself and my son took it very hard. But for some reason he told me that he felt like his father was not going to return from this deployment like he did his first one back in 2006. This was a shocker to hear him actually speak on something like that; and from that day on he has been telling me about seeing spirits in the home.

One night not to long after my son came in my room around 2:30-3:00 begging me to let him sleep in my room, I didn't ask him why. I just thought that he had a nightmare, so I did. But after like a week he was still sleeping in my room, so I told him that he had to go back into his room but he continued to beg me to stay in my room. So I decided to finally ask him why he no longer wanted to stay in his room and that's when he told me that he sees spirits at night walking past his door. I thought that he was just messing around, like many kids do to get there way, but here it is 10 months later and he still refuses to sleep in his room.

He has spoken to me about feeling and seeing the spirits walking past him while he's in his bed. He also states that we have a dog spirit in the home, which I can honestly say I do believe because one night I was at the kitchen sink washing dishes and I felt something rub against the back of my leg. I turned to see if it was our dog but he was still outside in the yard when this happened.

I have asked him many times if these spirits have done anything to him or said anything to frighten him but all he tells me is that they haven't and that he doesn't want to live in our home, which is not going to be problem because we are a military family so we are due to move in April of next year. It really bothers me that he is experiencing this at such a late age considering I always thought that this type of sensitivity would develop at a younger age. Is there something that I can do help my son feel comfortable in his room at night until we move out of this home? I am open to any and all options because my husband is coming home this December and he is not going to want his 13 year old son sleeping in the same room with us.

I'm 15 myself and started seeing spirits around the same age as your son. Sometimes the ability to see spirits just sort of comes out of the blue.

Is there anyone else in your family who sees spirits?

As for deeling with the fear, try telling your son that most spirits aren't bad and they were once people just like us. If that doesn't work, you might ask the spirits themselves to leave your son alone. Or your son can try that.

The ability won't really go away so your son will have to get use to spirits. He should try to talk to them, ask them why they have come to him and what they need.

Ummm, about your husband, where did your son get the idea that his father wasn't coming home? If it came to him in a dream or vision then he's precognitive. If one of the spirits told him then he's a lot stronger than you think.

Hopes this helped,
Brightest Blessings,

Young people who have paranormal abilities need above all else understanding.

-Have your son visit this blog website to talk with others his age who share his abilities.

-Visit psychics to find one you feel most comfortable with, then take your son to visit that psychic for advice. (A good psychic will assist another psychic for free.)

-Your son needs the guidance and protection of his Guides/Angels. They will help him develop his gift so that he can control it better, understand it, and not feel so afraid. They will also protect him when he asks for it.

-Have him read books and watch movies on this subject. (If you want my suggestions on which ones are best for him let me know.)

Well, I'm not sure about sites, but shops might have them around your city. And the books, your library should have something, mine does and we're not very big. Try to get him to keep a note book and get him to jot down dates and times and what was different about the experience, it could help him out. For me I have a canopy, (I'm a girl) and I just tell myself that NOTHING can pentrate it, I also try filling my room with protective energy, it really helps. I can't connect exactly with the ghost thing, because like I said before, I see shadow ghosts and demons, but I can relate to the 'Scared overwhelmed newbie' part. So maybe look for a wiccan store, or a store that sells crystals. Hope I helped:)
PS, sorry about the wiccan thing if you christian or something:S

Oh, I forgot. You can get some sage. I do this for my son at times when things are very active at night. I put some in a bowl and light it, then walk around his room and the hallway and room adjoining his room. Make sure you fan the smoke in each corner of these rooms and in the closets. They like to hide in these areas. At least this will keep them out of his room for the night. Oh, I would not do the entire house unless you have enough faith in your God. If you are not strong enough, doing the entire house could really tick them off and make things worst. I've also found that even when the entire house is done, it does not mean things won't just pass through. The ones that stay will be gone but since your son has a gift the ghosts know and can see it in his aura. There will be times when they will follow him, again bringing more through the home. I know there are some who know how to mark the four territories around the home with strong blessings. This will help keep the negativity off the property, but the other stuff will still come. I know a man who has a very strong gift and he knows a lot about removing spirits from the home, however he still can't keep it all from coming in his home. He can remove them once they get in there. Point is, it still happens.

Devontesmom, Nightlights sound good for shadows, however if he is seeing the ghost/spirit as a whole, the night light more than likely won't work. My son sees ghosts outside in the daylight. It is not odd for a child to start seeing at his age. I started when I was young and my son started at 9 years of age and I know someone who started at 22. It would probably be helpful for him if you found someone in your area who teaches and can help him with what is going on and also to learn protection which is a must. There are some very good teachers out there who will teach for free. If you find one that charges, make sure it is not a huge fee because normally these people are just out to rip you off. I would also question what they teach or ask if you can sit with your son while he teaches to make sure you approve of his teachings. I can tell you that "moving" is not going to make this all go away. It will effect him throughout his life at some time or another. Your son is very lucky to have a mother who listens. The ones who don't listen make their children feel like they are not normal and a lot of the times the child will not trust in coming to them anymore. I would continue to let him sleep in your room until he is able to understand this more. Fear can give the spirits more energy, so if he finds more comfort being in your room and it helps rid of his fear more, than so be it. At least until he can find someone to help him more and he can start to feel more comfortable. I always tell my son that God is much stronger, which he is. If he feels fear, to say a prayer. I'm 37 and I find this helpful for even I'd be lieing if I said there weren't things, ugly things, out there that didn't surprise me and catch me off guard and put some fear in me, but the key is to get ahold of yourself and remove the fear quickly. I wish you the best. If there is anything else we can help you with, let us know.

Have you talked with your son about posting a story on this web site? I would think that others on this site, especially some his own age with similar experiences might be good. Help him write the story if he'll let but don't push. It may be a way for you to learn more of what he is seeing if he accepts your help. I've saw a show on the Bio channel I think, called psychic kids that you may want to check out if it's comes on again.

We have members on the Spirit Council who are 13 as well. I myself see spirits wondering around my room. Shadow spirits are neither good nor bad, they just do what ever it takes to get what they want. They are not suppose to touch you or hurt you. For some reason they just like watching you. Also, moving is not always going to help. It is not always the house that is haunted, it sometimes the people. It could be that the spirits that are bothering you have an interest in your life style. Just tell him to sleep in his own room and close your his eyes. They are not allowed to touch you on purpose. If they hurt a human we have members who try taking care of that. Also, some spirits are shy, they could be wanting to tell him something in his sleep, but because he is with you at night, they are to scared, and they will find a way to show him. Myself, I have not slept for a while, so I know what they do when they can't tell you in a dream. If your son does not get the message that they might want him to get, then they will start interfering with your life. He will start seeing things during the day, will get weird messages, get hurt, and start hearing things. This is when it gets dangerous. So, he might be safer in his own room.

I am acquainted with an Indian Shaman here in Louisville Kentucky named Willie "Windwalker" Gibson. Willie can be found by Googling his name. He has out a book that can be previewed on Amazon and he has a question and answer section on a psychic web site. He also has a local television show. Willie began seeing spirits at a young age and I feel he can be of great help to you and your son in dealing with what is going on. Look him up, he is a very kind and very compasionate and caring individual. Hope this helps.

I did some research and there are a couple of books I can recomend. (Messages from Thomas: Raising Psychic Children), (The Children of Now: Crystalline Children, Indigo Children, Star Kids, Angels on Earth, and the Phenomenon of Transitional Children). For the night light I would go to


Its the store that connected to this website. The lamps give a low glow and are suitable for use as nightlights or for ambient mood lighting. If you want an actual crystal night light I think you have to make them yourselves. I couldn't find any online. Hope the website helps

Blessed Be

Tell him to imagine a bright protective light surrounding him. The best thing you can you do for him if you yourself can't help him is to find someone that is acustome to paranormal and spirtual activity for him to talk to.

Tessalovesmusic: I will look into purchasing him a crystal night light, thanks for that idea (CuriousPsychic13). Do you know of any places or websites that I can purchase one from? Do you have any suggestions on books that I can look into for him as well?

Its common that this stuff develops as a teenager, for the ghosts I agree with curiouspsychic13 a crystal night light would help him. For unfriendly ghosts using white sage in the house to smudge it helps rid of the nasty ones. I definitely recommend the sage, I smudge my house when ever I feel a mean ghost on the prowl. I would also recommend reading a book specially made for dealing with psychic childeren

Blessed Be,

CuriousPsychic13:Thanks for the idea of finding others like him, if I'm not mistaken he has told me about some of his friends speaking about it in school. I think that I may have a get together with them to hear what they have experienced here on this military post. 😁

AnneV: I have asked him many times if he would like for me to get him a night light but he tells me no because then he'll see the shadows more. We have a family dog that stays in the house but he sleeps in the room with me. Myself and my son have tried to get him to sleep in the room with him but it never works. But I will explain to him, well let him read, what you said about ghosts not being evil.

Thanks you guys! 😁

I know I'm going to sound messed, but try a night light, or an object of 'safety' for him. Like a crystal or something. I'm 13 as well, and I see shadow ghosts and demons. It was VERY frightening the first time, but something you have to realize ghosts (of the human soul or shadow variety), are EVERYWHERE. They're always going to wander, and your son will most likely keep his gift.
I would advise looking for... A sort of medium meeting? For others like him who see ghosts, it could be comforting for him.
Also, if no one else in the family has had these gifts, doesn't mean he's faking. I would just try to comfort him and try to talk to him. Good luck:)

I feel for you on this one, I really do. I have a good friend whose very young son is able to do things most adults would only dream of and more and more of these young children are open to these things. Call them what you will but they are not yet closed down by societies tactics (dumming down, closing off, making fun of, saying it's a "dream", calling a liar, whatever).

This is not a switch that can be shut off and it's unlikely that these visions will go away. It sounds like your son is particularly open to this phenomenon. First, I agree that moving is a good thing. And just so you know, the "newer" the house, the less energy patterns have been imprinted on the space but I also understand you may have little say in where you move.

The lack of being able to sleep alone I am sure is exacerbated by the dark. Your son may be fine when it's daylight but what child isn't spooked by the dark? You may want to have a brighter night light. You may also want to consider getting a dog for company. I have pets and I love how they keep me company when my husband is gone on trips. A dog can make anyone, especially a child, feel very protected.

Something you may or may not wish to share with your son, but like energy attracts like beings. Hopefully you can help him with his fear and as gently as possible explain that these are not "evil" people but confused and lost humans that just so happen not to have their bodies anymore. Remember, when you and I die, we too are "ghosts". We've gotten a bit nuts on the label and thanks to the horror genre (which I love but I recognize what it's done to society), the term ghost has gotten a frightful rap.

Hope this helps! I'm sure there will be mothers out there who can empathize and will share their own opinions.
