My 12 Year Old Son Can See And Hear Spirits


My son has been treated by a psychiatrist since he was 6 y.o. He has ADHD and ODD. Since he was put on meds when he was younger- he has always done well in school, in fact, he is in the gifted program and has a very high IQ. He first spoke of seeing people when he was about 8 y.o. He told his doctor about it (that's the first time I heard about it) and he said that it had been going on for some time. He said he can hear them trying to whisper to him but he can't hear the words clearly (when they whisper he says he gets chills all over his body). He doesn't always see someone when he hears the whispers. He sees blurry looking images of people (usually a whitish color blur) but he can tell it's a person. He says that he tries to ignore it because he knows it can't be real. Sometimes he will even come into my room and get into bed with me when he can't ignore them at night. I have started him on melatonin to help him sleep more soundly so maybe it won't wake him up as much. I think it might be helping.

It seems to be happening more often as he gets older. He has recently become afraid of mirrors, tv's and computer monitors (when they are turned off); he says he can see things in the reflection on the screens and so I have started covering them with towels when they are turned off. The doctor says that he is not crazy, does not have schizophrenia, or anything else. He is an awesome child, has friends, loves his pets and family and is overall a very happy child. This is one thing that is bothering him and I am not sure how to help him. I have told him to say out loud to them to leave him alone and to not bother him in his personal space. That he wants them to leave him alone and stop bothering him.

He has seen "people" in his room, walking through the house, at his Dads house in his room, and once saw one walk through the wall to the outside; and the whispers happen anytime- at school, at home, at the store.

Does anyone have any ideas to help him? If it is spirits that he is seeing- I don't want him to be afraid- I just want to teach him how to handle it better so that he is not afraid.

Believe him.
One of the most comforting things for anyone is knowing that they're not alone. Unless they are trying to hurt him, don't be afraid of ghosts. They may involve grandparents or other relatives. Often spirits are there trying to protect people or give them advice.
He has chosen to tell you about this, so he must be grateful to know you listen seriously to him and with an open mind. Don't let anyone test him for insnity, because he'd be insulted.
If he mentions what he sees in those reflections, pay attention to current events and people. He may be witnessing future events. Those anen't always good.
Personally, a psychiatrist would do nothing for me. Knowing that you trust his word and that there are others with the same situation would be comforting to him.
Consider showing him this website. Let him know he's not nuts.

Children are always more psychic then older people, if a man is getting a power through meditation in 15 years then a 6-7 years old child can achieve it in just few months, accidentally your son get his third eye open, it might be because of that psychic treatment or he has done meditation in childhood days, now he is able to see the cosmic energy and IInd dimension, tell him that those shadows do nothing to him, those shadows are actually the wandering spirits of IInd dimension, tell him that whenever he face any such kinds shadows then act like he is better than those just like a rich person treat a poor one. Tell him that his thoughts must be high to see higher dimensions mean emotions like fear, sadness should not be there, if he is living a normal life (not mindind cosmic life) then soon he will loose his this ability, there is nothing to worry, tell him that there is no harm to him, everything will be fine, tell him to listen metal music, play video games, watch anime to diverge mind

Through the advice of a friend, I recommended my son try something when he felt "the feeling" or sees or hears something- and it seems to be working. He said that he remembered this starting after my grandpa died (when my son was 4) and so I told him when he is afraid to close his eyes and focus on Grandpa. To think about him and picture him and to ask Grandpa to wrap him in his love. Ask Grandpa to protect him from any evil spirits that are around and to keep him safe and sound. & to help the other spirits to move on. TJ did this and it helped him alot. He was visually calmer and more relaxed when he did this and after about 5 or 6 minutes he opened his eyes and said "Grandpa made it better Mom".

I wanted to share this so that anyone else who is dealing with this can maybe try to think about a "good angel" that they know that they can call on to help them. I hope it helps someone else...

Hmm, I can teach your child to hold this gift dearly and not be afraid. I have helped many. Some I am currently trying to get around to helping, sorry for those. Please try contacting me through email.

Tell your son something like this. "Most bad spirits just want fear. Like bullies, they want a reaction. Don't give them that, and they get bored and move on." Of course, there are a few who want something more. But, form what I know, most are just looking for a reaction. I just hope I'm not giving bad advice, and your son starts thinking that he shouldn't do anything if something seriously bad happens... 😢

Thank you so much for your quick responses. Yes, I am very glad that his Psychiatrist didn't try to "dope him up" or something, which I was really worried about. He is already on medication for the ADHD and I do not want to add more. I will definitely look into homeopathic remedies (natural science) and I will also get the two books you mentioned (violetstory). I am more than willing to help him along with this. I love my children more than life itself and would do anything to help them, especially when they are distressed. I will also save your email for further questions I may have. Last night was a hard one for him. For the first time, he said he saw a "bad man". He said he could feel his "evil" and he was crying so hard he could hardly breathe. He said he was too afraid to come into my room because "the man" was standing just outside of his bedroom doorway, so he just screamed until I came to him. He had already written down something to say when they bothered him and I grabbed it (ironically it was hanging on his bedroom door) and I had him read it out loud (he even said thank you at the end) :)
I didn't realize until this morning that maybe the paper with the words he wrote hanging on his door may have been what kept "the man" from actually coming into the room. Saying what he did seemed to help and he had no more problems the rest of the night.
Thanks again!

Firstly, you can be glad of the doc. He does not psychiatrize your son. Narrow-minded ones would. Don't change to another doc!
Then, Classical Homeopathy quite surely would free your son of perception of spirits. I am a practitioner of this, I know what I say. It is very successful in night-terror of kids (which often is connected with dreams or visions of ghosts) and I meself freed an woman who, by spiritual practice, had become too sensitive so that she saw spirits and auras and was afraid of coming to see also demons, from her hypersensitivity by only two doses of a high-potency homeopathic remedy. Hope you find a serious and experienced Homeopathist in your town. Check it out on WWW.

As his mother you can try to educate yourself so you can better help your son as you are trying to do now:) Here is a great book for getting started on the subject and here is a great book for a deeper look into what he may deal with as he progresses
A great thing to do is to embark on this journey with your child, he will always have his mother to talk about these sort of things with. You can begin to learn the protection techniques in these two books (greatly in the first) and as he begins to get older you can present to him the techniques that you feel are appropriate for the stage he is at. With these techniques you can begin to set boundaries as to where these spirits can go and cannot go and you will be well equipped for anything that may happen.:)
With the love that you two have for each other, anything is possible ❤

Good luck and remember you can reply here or email me (blee64[at]hotmail[dot]com) if you need any help:)
