Real Psychic Experiences

5yr Old Son


I need someones help explaining a series of problems with my 5yr old son. First I have to say, hes been having vivid dreams since 1yrs old. I have always been very concerned with him, something has never seemed right with him. I have always had a sense he sees other things... But last night really scared me. Here's my story; last night he wakes around 2am & I allowed him to sleep in our room. I know this wasn't a case of him trying to deceive me because he was tired & I could tell something was keeping him up. After about 10mins of quietness he says "Mommy what's all those orange dots in the air?" I never opened my eyes but I told him it must be something from outside. Another 10mins go by and he asks the same question again. I opened my eyes & seen nothing but darkness. He asked this question at least 5more times. I SEEN NOTHING. After about a half hour he jumps into my bed terrified saying the orange dots came close to him. He was shaking in terror. I held him until he feel asleep. The next morning he brings up the "orange dots". He tells me they kept coming in & out of the room then all the sudden the dots came so close to him. He explained how scared he was. After having the conversation, hes comes to me and says Mommy them dots read my mind & are back in your room. I'm very scared for him. As long as I can remember hes had terrible nightmares. To which he shakes & screams and there's no waking him. There's been times he starts speaking in weird mumbles. I have to say, he isn't exposed to anything that'd explain why he'd have such dreams... No scary movies, etc. Hes an ordinary boy, but something has always troubled him & it shows. It's like something bothers him but he won't say what. Is this normal? I'm worried if I have him see a doctor they'll think he's crazy... Hes not crazy! Has anyone else experienced similar experiences? Please help explain!

It could be his eyes. But if it's evil spirits (angels don't scare a child), then I don't think what 'damona' said will work, to keep them away (salt circle and dream catcher). I agree that you need to call a priest (I suggest orthodox christian), to sprinkle your home and family with holy water. You should pray, read the bible and psalms, and PRACTICE what the bible sais. That way you'll get close to Jesus and the Holy Angels. Good luck. God bless!

Go to a priest to get him baptised and let the priest bless your house. Get all the sacramentals for your house and burn incense, pray regularly and make him wear a blessed crucifix always.

I'm going to copy and paste what I post on another worried mom's post...don't be fearful read what I say and empower your child. Gifted children need to be reassured and heard! And good cuddles always make things seem safe xxoo! I think you are describing what I first saw at 5 years old. I describe them as floating and dancing glowing dots. Red was the dominate color but there were a couple that followed. I would be a sleep and then these dots would wake me and dance around my room... And try to engage me. I was confused and thought I was just too sleepy. I didn't tell anyone for months. You are very lucky that your child is sharing with you and I'm so happy you are researching and taking him serious. It's very real. When I was little and thought I was just sleepy and would roll over to go to sleep they would bounce on my bed and tuck around me like a cat trying to pat before bedding down. After a couple months of trying to ignore them one night they woke me up and I saw pictures and really short quick "movies" that formed in them. It traumatized me that night because it was telling me about the death of a family member... I was scared to death. But they are still with me to this day and I'm almost 40yrs old. I don't know what they are. I question if it is spirit energy etc... But I don't think so. It's a total different feeling. They've never scared me... Even when I was 5 years old. They were playful then. I don't see them very often anymore but they still show up... I think they protect me and prepare me somehow. But I don't know what they are. But they are very real. When I was little they woke me up all the time... They would just dance around and want to play with me. It's odd I know that now. But they never scared me. I'm so glad you believe your child...xxoo!

small children are the most likely to have paranormal experiences, they can also be stronger than most other psychics.

Ask for your guardian angel to protect him for a while, until he gets his own. I remember seeing some stuff as a young girl, that couldn't possibly be explained by science. I'm a phychic, been seeing auras since I can remember. I'm only 15 years old now.
Though, as an extra measure, maybe get a doctors checkup. If you're really worried about him being percieved as crazy, just play around the 'kids having overactive imaginations'.

My brother once was bitten by a spider and saw black dots coming at him. Each of my children had nightmares on and off until they were in the 2nd grade. When my son had the measles he had a fever and saw things. Rapid heart beat that comes with fear or anxiety can cause one to see dots and colors. Children need reasurance that the world is safe not an unknown thing adults can't feel safe in. We are physical as well as emotional human beings; before you consider that your son may be being touched by out of his reality, consider talking about his everyday worries and troubles maybe he is fantisizing over things and making life scarier than what it actually is. Comfort him make him feel safe and secure let him know your comfortable and have a good life; and that he has that same life you have.

i think your child might be somewhat a medium. A person that can see and speak to spirits. What troubles me is that he might also be a person who is easy to possess. I recommend getting someone like a priest to inspect your house and see what is going on. Your house might have violent spirits and they are attracted to your son's spiritual energy. It's best you do something quick. His nightmares trouble me. Good Luck.

Please check out AnneV's article on here about Psychic Children. All the way up at the top of the screen, just click on "articles".
Also, I would have to suggest that you take him to an optometrist. I think it may be time for an eye exam. We must try to remember in protection mode, that not all doctors are traditional thinking any more. If you do your research, look into live references, you can find doctors who do not jump on the back of that train. There are other purely physical reasons that some people seem to see dots.
If you can rule out all physical things (and please remember he is still very young. Communication is not all that easy in the vocal sense), perhaps it is time to teach him how to calm his mind at night. Sounds like this happens just at night. Is that a true statement?
Try putting a bit of an extra bright night light in his room. Not so bright that it keeps him up, but bright enough to see the entirety of his space. Just so that he can check out things on his own. Maybe a tape, or CD of music that is soothing to HIM. So what if it is White Snake or some such thing. If it soothes HIM, *shrug* use it. Maybe try using some incense. Lavender is rather soothing, Lilac, something "soft". Nothing like Dragons-blood.
At the same time, you need to work on YOUR calming exercises as well. He can feel your fear. If he knows YOU are frightened, HE will be frightened. Even if you have to fake it by pretending that they are the equivalent of Christmas Lights just to get through it, DO IT. He needs YOUR strength just as much as you need answers.
I have a young son with much the same thing happening in his life. You are not alone. He will be fine. Just love him.
Thank you.

Research this and try to help him becouse when he gets older he will have a very hard time with school. No, he is not cookie I have it all the time only difference is there gost but I just yell and say NOT TO NIGHT IM TIRED! And they just go away. Reduce his fear please I beg you this happened to me and its horrible. My parent did think I was crazy didn't go well with me, Help your son reduce his fear and stress becouse when he gets older he may have a very hard time. TYell him that what he sees you see too and its normal say there just faries taking care of us! Keeping you safe. Ask him to explain the dream and you word it nicely and make a happy ending but remember tell him that you believe him. Its horrible to feel all alone in this world! Make him feel normal and say that you understand him and explain it to him in a nice funny and happy way. Make his expiriences funny, and good! Take fear off of his mind and tell him if he ever gets scared to come to you or for him to ask them to go away and to close his eyes and count to 5 and they will disapear. In his dreams tell him to blink his eyes three time to wake up from the bad dream. Ask him to draw you what he had dreamed if he can't explain make him feel safe and strong. I would love to hear from you to see how your son as progressed email me at jaklin_valle [at] if you need more advise email me and I will gladly do so! Blessings to you both

remember don't let your son read your fear or he will be more scared. Just pray, sing, dance do anything that helps make you feel happy. Accumulate good karma so you can make a spirit sword: do good deeds: feed the sick, make someone laugh, etc.

When I was young, I would focus on all the dots in the room in front of me. I later used to think that if I focused hard enough, I could manipulate all the dots. Today, I have psychic abilities, but I choose not to focus on them. (Too draining and not my thing.) One thing I can't control so easily is my empathic clairvoyancy, so I simply accept it and work with my gift.

For me, it was the tiny dots the eyes see in the dark, but it was a bit comforting. Try instilling a greater sense of deep, inner confidence in your son. Maybe make up a bedtime story. Your son needs to know that he has the power to separate himself from the dots. Maybe try talking about a strong white globe (or better yet, a forcefield) that exists inside him and if he focuses hard enough, the light from the globe can easily chase away the orange dots. Once your son realizes he can block out the negative energy, you should hopefully see a big difference.

I think you should take him to see a doctor because it may not be something psychic.

I do agree with InjuredAngelHeero. You should burn sage in his room when he's sleeping and put up a dream catcher. I used to have nightmares daily, but after hanging a dream catcher, they stopped for the most part.

The orange dots could be spirits, a vision problem, or something else entirly. He's only 5, so him explaning what's happening will be hard. Just tell him they won't hurt him. You might also want to tell him to imagine a white light surronding him whenever he's scared. This should help him feel safe, and it's a method that works for many people.

Good luck to you and your son~

Blessed be

ok either way, your son shouldn't be scared by things he sees. Remind him you love him, tell the things to leave him alone he's too young for all this and they're scaring him. Have someone pray over your house (choose whatever method you personally trust and believe in because it will be your faith that maintains it and keeps it working)

Take him to the doctor and have his vision checked, you can have a MRI if you're worried about abnormal brain patterns or developmental issues. Hopefully he'll learn to protect himself and outgrow it or learn to communicate with them and not be afraid.

Either way give him common sense advice about bullying which is what this lights and nightmares are doing. If they are not self generated out of his own mind then they have no reason to be bothering him right now. That's what I tell all the spirits that make it pass the shields and try and talk to my kids and "read their minds" its their minds and none of their business go astral project somewhere else

Its dangerous to let things establish themselves in kids minds. Did you know that if people find repeating patterns in kids sleep patterns that can be an early sign of mental retardation?

I hypothesis that its people playing around in other people dreams and heads that don't belong there and messing up their physical body, mental and physical attachments to their bodies and brains. Warning to those who mess around with this stuff for kicks and giggles, most of the people I know are having health problems, brain seizures and other things that shouldnt be happening. I would suggested that you stay grounded and clothed in your earthly body, rest and heal unless you really need to do other stuff.

Especially when I was younger, I saw those dots. I never told anyone. My visoin was not being a problem. At school people started talking about cows with holes in them caused by the lights. I of course had a minor freak out in my head every time I saw one for a while, but they never hurt me. They were just there. Sometimes they seemed to be many colors at once, and eventually I got used to seeing them.
Your son may be seeing orbs or spirits. Usually they mean no harm but if things start to move and he's still afraid, write on this site and I'll try to help. Most ghosts want to protect someone, or give advice. Or they want to warn you about something. Whatever the case be, you probably shouldn't be scared.
The nightmares might be dreams of reality that haven't happened yet. I've been told I had a dream like that when I was about 3. Since then I've figured it must've been like a vision or something. Now my dream often happen and I get visions.
Most importantly you need to continue to believe your son. It's the best thing he needs the most now, and he trusts you. It's your desision of course to see a doctor or not, but what will they do? If he's seeing things they can't they'll simply deny those things exsist. A psychiatrist could help, depending on your son's personality. For me that'd only get me mad at the counsler and trying not to laugh, but my friends find guideance very helpful in their lives. The majority, to my knowledge, do not See things.
Hope any of this helps

Look, I didn't say it couldn't be a problem with his eyes, but why am I being called out?

Sage is used in aromath therapy as well as situations like this, the sage can be used independently from the medical check ups to see if it really could be paranormal.

I also know that if a child loses faith that their parents believe them, then it can cause a lot of damage and bad behavior.

As much as many of you have talked about the physical problems, think of the possible mental problems telling this kid that the lights he thinks are real are fake. Just because medical tests can say that the lights are a symptom of something doesn't mean the he will see the lights differently.

Homeopathist would be another good address. Better than psychiatrist I think. I am one. I'd give this boy just a dose of
And wait for two weeks.
If he remains free from nightmares after the globules it is a medical thing, called pavor nocturnus, which the kids between two and six tend to have as a side-effect of brain development, or as an effect of things they experienced as spooky or scary. Most of the time it is harmless, and "matures out" until seventh year.

Child psychiatrist / eye doctor.

As far as working with this on your own. If you have any spiritual exercises you use, try to include your child in these. Maybe find some activity to get him involved in, a sport which can be empowering and help him forget these things.
Try to maintain confidence, never react with distress to these things as your child probably feels helpless and needs someone to be his rock. Explain that nothing can hurt him and really work on having a persona of strength and understanding. Hopefully it will rub off;)

I've had a bit of spiritual and psychic experiences, but as far as it goes with children there isn't much you can do to work with them. A psychiatrist is a good resort for this sort of thing. If you don't have the money (I sure don't), just listening and being there is probably the best thing you can do. Be strong, patient, and attentive.

Chetyre has a valid point. Before jumping to a paranormal conclusion, ALL logical factors should be taken into account. It would be kind of dumb not to do so.

Chetyre has another valid point on the development of children's perceptions. I would urge all interested to look at the developmental stages of Piaget, Kohlberg, and Erik Erikson. It is very useful in determining what children are naturally capable of, and what they are not capable of.

*People in the world now think that if science can't explain it it doesn't exist; and that cause kid to start ignoring things that happen.*

What is so wrong with that? I would think that it is in the boy's best interests if this issue was tackled with as much objectivity as possible.

I think it is better to have this issue dealt with in a logical and level-headed manner. Children, I think, are nowhere near as psychic as we have been led to believe and many conditions that were once attributed to being "psychic" were found out too late that it was really a medical issue.

Sorry...wel, not really, but I stick with having the boy's eyes checked as well as monitoring what he sees on tv.

I also stick with helping him deal with it in a level-headed approach and helping to teach him not to let his fear control him... If he gets afraid then it is that much harder to deal with whatever he is burdened with... It isn't any different for grown-ups too.

*why would the kid say that the dots are reading his mind*

A boy of five does not have the vocabulary to describe what is going on. He may not mean it in the way he says it but might THINK this is what is happening. Kids are quite adept at being ambiguous.

It is pretty common for kids to think that certain things can read their's much like a child covering their eyes and figuring that if they can't see you then you can't see them either.

This is a truly heartwrenching story, and I hope you can get some help.

Young children are more open to spirits because they don't know how to sheild themselves, and the modern world hasn't told them that what they are seeing is fake.

People in the world now think that if science can't explain it it doesn't exsist; and that cause kid to start ignoring things that happen.

I tend to say this a lot, but burning sage is a technique many native americans and psychics use to to rid of negativity. It can get rid of anything from enery to emotions left over to spirits.

However, Chetyre makes a good point. You may also want to get his eyes checked just to rule out anything physical. It couldn't hurt.

I had experiences like that as a child. I was told I was crazy, possessed, and that something was just wrong with me or that I was lying. I was also raised with a Pentecostal upbringing. If you know anything of the religion you could only imagine the negative associations that was put into my head about these experiences. It's like Anne's article says do your research to better understand these things. Help your son feel comfy with who he is and show him enormous amount of unconditional love and patience. He'll be okay.

I don't mean to sound callous but before we start in on the "spirit" bandwagon I would seriously consider having his eyes checked.

I realize I will be screamed at for even daring to suggest this but it is best to be safe and make sure that this hallucination isn't being caused by some visual problem.

You could simply tell him the light are little fairies and they are just trying to say "Hi". (I don't believe in fairies, mind you but it might help your boy)

Night terrors are also a possible explanation for his screaming... I doubt you need to worry but to be safe, limit what he sees on tv and be mindful of what you say around him... Kids are really good at hearing stuff you don't want them to hear. (trust me... I experienced this first hand) 😊
