Real Psychic Experiences

Orbs, Coloured Lights And One Very Scared Son


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.

Thank you

I think Your son will be fine. As a matter of fact I think he's blessed with a great Gift. I've been having this experience for about 2yrs. It happened in march of 2008. I was on my porch and I saw this stream of light going back and forth across the trees like a flash light then it got faster. All of a sudden it started comming closer I went in got my mom and asked her what she saw? Nothin she said! Then Rods started comming from the sky and crashing on the ground bending where they hit and this AMAZING LIGHT SHOW BEGAN! It went on for about a half hr. I was very deep into my religios beliefs at this time even not given in to my sexual desires. So when it was all done I was baffled! What a Gift to see such BEAUTY! I went in and drew a pic of it and wrote My Beautiful light show on top and the date. Then the next night I went out cause at the time I was staying with my mom and the one bad habit I still had was smoking. So I went out to smoke and I saw these white like pin lights flying all around. They started going around me real fast like when you look down at the pavement when your driving that blurry fast look. It was like a protected force feild around me I never felt so safe! Then I also saw a green ball of light that just zoomed around. I sat out there for what seemed like hours watching. This went on for days. Finally one night when I went in so did the light. I started seeing it in the house. I play christian music in the house and when I do you should see the action that goes on with these lights. I wanted to know why I was seeing them I was nervous I knew something wasn't right. I was the only one and I knew people would think I was crazy if I started talking about it. So I prayed on it I asked God to reveal to me what they were. The next a.m. I woke up with Corinthians 12 in my head. I'm very spiritual and love the Lord but I can't really get into reading the bible cause there's to many thou's and Art's it's confusing, So I didn't even know there was a Corinthian's I looked it up and it's your spritual Gift! I felt MUCH BETTER! When I would play my christain music the balls of lights would get really active and the one green ball would zoom all over. So I would actually stand in my dining rm and under my hanging light above the kitchen table. I could actually take my hand and stir it around and around in circles and I would stir that green light into my hands. I could actually touch it! This is all true from my heart. Also I saw what people look like when there invisible in movies that blurry look! I seen that once. I saw a whole body standing by my mom's car but I stopped quick, struck with fear so now I just see blotches about 3 ft worth. I believe it to be spirits I see etheric energy on doorways people I can even watch my hands trail that happened a lot when this first happened and I was really spiritual. I wanted to know more so I prayed for more answrs again. Then my mom told me that Elizabeth Foley a Angelologist was going to be at Barnes and Noble. I went and saw her and she also verified that these lights were Angels!:) I see these lights every day. If your scared all you have to do is say where are you my angels? If it's dark and you don't stare you just relax you'll see em.:) YOU'RE NEVER ALONE! WE'RE NEVER ALONE! Thank You JESUS! Any Question Please e-mail me Kdey [at] I'm also a sensitive and I can read people. I pick up on murderers, alcoholics, molesters and the molested, violent people you name it I have a Gift there's no doubt about that. My greatest gift is LOVE! Take care & God Bless!:)

It sounds like your dealing with something very similar to me. My situation with my son has gotten somewhat better or at least manageable as of lately. My son sleeps with his head covered also and still has the tv covered with a blanket so he doesn't have to see the people in the reflection. It is a very hard thing, especially when friends and family want to say we're crazy (crazy to believe our child?); I am not sure how that can be when we know in our hearts that our children are asking us for help and looking to us for guidance. The best words spoken to me... BELIEVE HIM... They need us so badly to believe them so that they themselves do not feel crazy. Can you imagine what it would be like to be a child of that age and have that going on? It would be so scary! Just ease his mind, give him a flashlight to carry with him in the evenings (that helped my son a lot!). Also, I hung a crucifix on his door and said a blessing from evil in his room and through the house. Then, when he "felt" a presence or saw something, he would ask his grandpa (who is in heaven now) for his love and protection. Read my latest comment about it on my profile- it really helped my son a lot. I am available anytime if you want to talk or ask anything. Good luck to you and your family. You are in our prayers.

The 'blue ghost' 'Richard' I think you said was the name your son gave him, it could very well be him.

Passing suddenly during the war his 'ghost' could have returned to a place he felt 'safe and confortable' in while he was alive. Now that your family is renovating 'his home' he just wants to know what is going on. Again I suguest you try walking around your home speaking out loud, explaining what exacatly you are doing...

Have your son be part of this. I hope that this will calm 'everyone' involved and that all will 'quiet down' around your home. Again, thank you for sharing your experience and please keep us updated.

Hi Rook, yeah kind of thought that about taking things with us or leaving them behind, I suppose time will tell on that one.
Thank you for your interest, its nice to be able to talk about what's happened and not feel like someone's judging what you say.
Back when our son saw what he says was the 'blue ghost' he gave us a name of Richard, we took this as a starting point to do some investigations into the history of the house, we chatted to a retired chap who now lives across the road, he was able to tell us it was originally two small farm cottages, his family owned one, he even gave us photos going back over many decades when the main road was just a dirt track with horse and cart. He also has the parish records and researched back as far as he could using the name our son had given us, trying to find anyone who had died in the house, the closest he came to was a young chap who sadly lost his life in his early 20s in the first world war in France.
But think you might be right about the 'portal' thing, would explain why there is so many different happenings, footsteps, orbs, I myself have seen a small person at the top of the stairs, who ran away when I saw them, its funny tho sometimes lots seems to happen in a short time then nothing for a while.

Not to 'scare' you but that would depend on if the 'spirits/ ghosts' are attached to 'you' or the 'home'.

More than likely the renovations have 'disturbed' whomever/whatever is there in your home. Take a few moments, walk through the home, explain out loud what it is you are doing to 'Your Home'. Let them know you do not mean them any harm, and that they may continue to pass through your home in the travels...

The way you describe some of the things your son see's makes me think there is a 'portal' for lack of a better word in, or very near, your home. (my humble opinion here) Do you know any 'history' about your home? If so could you please share as it may help explain why these things are happening. Let your son know that these 'spirits' are just passing through and they can not/will not harm him. Please keep us updated.

Hi AnandaHya and thank you, if do feel so much more possitive dealing with the 'things' that happen now, my husband wonders if we have disturbed something in the house because we are doing some more major improvements again, this time we are turning my sons old bedroom into a large bathroom, pulling the floor up and taking walls down.
I do have a question tho, I'm thinking about suggesting we move, not only homes but far away from where we are here, would what's happened here remain here, if we moved and started again could we leave it behind.

mudplug don't let them steal away your sleep that's when your body heals and you get more energy from the Divine source. They are just trying to scare you. Notice they are not able to harm you or your kids physically? Mind games are their forte.

Peace, light and love.

Thanks everyone for your great help,
It means a lot to think there is others who have had similar things happen and that I'm not going totally mad!
Will be trying some of your ideas.
Although a strange thing happened last night again but different than before, my daughter is doing an art project and last Sunday afternoon she wrapped her sister up in toilet roll making her look like an ancient mummy to take pictures, (symbolizing wrappings) they used my sons room as for taking pictures, so to clear a wall they moved a large canvas picture, a hanging blackboard and his beanbag chair, returning all the items when they finished, last night when I was putting him to bed the wall was empty again, picture and blackboard moved away from the wall and his chair in the middle of his room, I called all 3 girls into his room to have a word about putting things back when they have finished with but all 3 girls stood there blankly looking at me, they thought I had done it to play a trick on them, I couldn't sleep last night, again!

Are you at it again? Sheeesh!
Go someplace else to recruit for your cult!
You've got predator written all over you and frankly I can't believe you continue to embarrass everyone with this sneaking around the edges.
Do the Managers of this site know that you're trying to steal their members? How do you think they're going feel about it?
Go away, Zishu. You're not trying to help anyone but yourself!

Have either of you tried sleeping in his room? When he's scared stay in there with him, you may get clues as to what has him so worked up. When he gets afraid, state clearly and confidently that nothing is allowed to harm or frighten him, if the presence cannot refrain from scaring him, it must leave.
Cosmo's advice is good. Sage is a very good way to cleanse a home. Be sure the smoke touches everything in the house.
A non-paranormal thought- you mention it's an old house. How is the electrical systems and wiring? Old wirings can send out strong EMF that some people pick up on. It can seem like paranormal activity. Look up EMF paranoia. It may not be an answer, but it's worth reading up on.

Hi, I seem to have a trick that not many people know about. If you have a catholic shop near by ask for Saint Benedict medals. You place them above windows and doors to protect from unwanted creepy stuff coming inside. I don't imagine the orbs you are seeing are bad but this may bring your son comfort. You should give him one and tell him to keep it in his pocket. It will protect him against anything bad, nothing can touch him while it is in his possession:)

First off, it's wonderful you're trusting your son's word. That is most important. The ghosts/orbs are spirits, possibly of family or of somone who just needs to know they're existant. I know ghosts, and most of them are pretty awesome. They can give you great advice. Unless one tries to hurt somebody, tell your son the ghosts are nothing to fear. glossary-look around here and stick to this site.
Hope it helps

Hi mudplug, First I would like to say I'm sorry that your little boy is being freightened by what is going on in your home. A friend of mine was going through the same thing with her son. He would wake up screaming in the middle of the night, stare into corners of the room, he even said one time that the monster tried to break his wrists. The advice she got was to burn sage in each room, and have someone preferably your husband go around to each room especially in the corners and places where the child sees them the most and say in a loud assertive voice."You are NOT allowed to scare or harm my son in any way" "You are NOT allowed to touch or bother him while he is sleeping" After my friend's husband did this, she kept up with the burning of sage for a while and her son didn't complain about the spirits anymore. It's something to try if your willing. I hope you find a solution soon. All the best to you and your family. 😊

its hard not having a support network around you that can help deal with it. I don't know what religion your family feels pulled towards but there a lot of resources on the internet that can help you. I can send you some lullabies and kids songs via email. Send me a reminder and I'll post them here as well.

I don't know if it is an overactive imagination or if he really is seeing something. However the best bet is to respond to his fear with love and kindness.

I may not know what is happening all the time but I take it seriously when my kids get scared. I just listen and go with them to see what has them scared. I found that most shadows and darkness hide from our eyes and presence, but mentally I send out a message "Do not mess with my family are I will hunt you to the ends of the earth and ensure that you are casted into the pits of Hell"

Sometimes the shadows are just people wandering and mean no harm. They don't mean to scare your kid and probably don't even realize he can see them. Most people can't see others who are wandering out of their bodies or have died.

Your love and concern creates a natural sheild around your house and unless someone inside that shield invites darkness in you will only have to deal with shadow people.

Demons aren't powerful enough and angels are more respectful than to intrude and scare a little kid.

I think that must be a lovely way to strengthen a belief, sadly here in the UK religion is not that strong, although religious education is taught in school its very much a second class subject and you will find very few families who actively attend church. Hymns are also not sung in school and our local church has such a poor attendance that it only opens perhaps once a month.

How do you deal with their fear, I tell my son that he needs to be strong and there is nothing to be afraid of, but he says he doesn't know why he's scared, he just is. We had one evening the other week when I was cooking tea, we were the only two in the house & it was dark but the lights were on, he was so afraid to leave me he just stood in the kitchen while I prepared the food, the front room is adjacent to the kitchen with an open doorway, but he couldn't go in to play, I asked him why he wouldn't go but he always says the same, he's scared but doesn't know what of.

I must admit I find it very hard at times to hold my temper, he can be playing happily all afternoon running around the downstairs of the house but as soon as the night creeps in he turns into a nervous wreck, even with the lights on he will need watching to go into areas he was playing in earlier, he has been know to stand and wet himself instead of going into the toilet because we have said he needs to go by himself.

We had hoped this would ease as he got older but it hasn't, I must admit sometimes I begin to wonder about what is going on with him, is it a normal thing to be so afraid of things & areas & dark, is he really sensing something else there or is it just an over active imagination, have we been to soft on him, we have tried forcing him to go alone by telling him not to be silly, he either refuses to go and after floods of tears we take him or he eventually goes and comes back chuffed with himself for doing it.

I do doubt at times and then he will without prompting start talking about things which is not normal for a 5 year old like the other day with the bright white sparkling lights, he was in a room with 4 other children and they saw nothing, I have tried finding someone in our local area who has the gift to come and talk to him but so far we have found no one.

my son is five as well. "gifts" run on both my husband and my side of the family so our children will just have to learn to deal with it. My kids learn hymns and praise and worship songs that tell them how much God loves them in their preschool. Perhaps you could give your son those spiritual swords? A song can chase away the darkness and add fuel to the lamp of the soul. Feel free to email me, I'm going to play with the kids.:) clupt012 [at]
