A little background history, when I was a child we moved to live with my grandparents, my gran would tell me ghost stories about houses she had lived in and experiences she had had, I was open to the fact there was more, and during my childhood I even saw 2 'ghosts' but as I grew up, moved out with my husband nothing much happened.
Then in 2005 we moved to an old house, apart from some major house renovations needing doing the house felt old, damp in places but ok, we started off with our son sleeping in the same room as us but when he was about a year old we moved him across the corridor, now we had had no problems with him climbing out of his cot or crying in the night but we did shortly after putting him into this room, he would wake, cry and then climb out of his cot and when we met him at the stair gate he would always look into the same corner of the room, we thought this was strange but never thought to much about it.
We had a major shift around with bedrooms and our son found himself moved into the smallest room, he must of been about 2 years old, now the room was slept in by my oldest daughter until she had a strange and frightening experience one night, she was about 12, and was woken by a strange feeling followed by a large ball of white light (football size) which traveled down the hallway at floor height, entered her room and then disappeared under her bed, she wouldn't go back for several nights.
Now our son was happily sleeping in a cot bed, no night light & door pulled to, he was two and a half, myself and husband were woken to hear him screaming the sort which makes your blood go cold, my husband jumped out of bed and ran to his door, now we never closed the door because it was broken and wouldn't close unless it was slammed hard, my husband pushed the door but it wouldn't open, it was shut he ended up barging his shoulder into the door to open it, he found our son climbing the wall in the corner above his bed sobbing, pointing behind his door saying 'blue ghost' he came in our bed until he settled down and bravely we put him back into his bed, but the door was left open, about an hour he woke us again screaming 'blue ghost' again, the door remained open this time.
Its been almost 3 years since it happened and he won't go upstairs alone, he never plays in his bedroom (not that he has the little room anymore) he sometimes gets scared about going into the kitchen, and will often asked to be watched while making a drink or having a wee.
He is scared about going almost everywhere in our house alone, he often talks about ghosts but says he has only seen the one, long back ago. At night in his bed he sleeps fully under the covers just in case he sees something.
Now I have seen lights in my room, orbs, brilliant white pin prick lights which do as I say a long flash, also I have seen black lights about a tennis ball size. About a month ago my son was in bed with us in the morning he asked me what the red lights were, I told him they were on the telly and sky box, he laughed and said, 'no not them, those, the falling ones' I didn't see them.
Yesterday my children had a friend around and they were all upstairs playing hide and seek, our son was happily playing and was ok when the lights were switched off, until he stood in the doorway of his first old room and he then said to his sister he was scared about the bright white lights in the room which the ghost walks into, the room faces the rear of the house and there were no external lights and only he could see them.
Now I understand he might have a gift, but at the end of the day he is a 5 year old boy who is scared in his own home, is there anyone out there who might be able to offer me some help & advice.
