Has your kid ever given you the chills? - Page 11

post #201 of 221

My Daughter and Psychic ability

Believe it or not but after seeing this thread (has your kid ever given you the chills?)I made this account.Interesting thread.

When We lived in La Habra we lived in a fairly small apartment and I Would put my daughter to sleep and go and watch T.V or cook.Whatever came to mind.Sometimes i would be watching and she'd be looking around the room curiously,a few nights she would get up to come out in the living room but since the closet (which was all mirrors) was directly next to the door she would cry "mommy" sometimes i would ignore here,not knowing what it is she wanted.She liked to sleep {talk}.
If i didnt come she would go "mommy..Mommy....MOM COME HERE!PLEASE MOMMY"Id come in and sit next to her and she claimed that she saw this woman in the closet with a beautiful green/orange dress on and she had light all around her.(aura)
I showed her a picture and she claimed it was Virgen Mary.Weve had Psychic Ability in our family for generations.BUT THIS was interesting.This would happen alot and SHE WOULD NOT sleep with the closet open.Shed start crying or she would cuddle under the blankets.

Other times she saw auras and We sometimes went to Psychic fairs and she was right.People would even ask her but as she got older it was not something she enjoyed doing.Her father and i have been divorced since she was about 5 or 6 and ever since then shed have "bad" dreams.It would affect her.And since i have observed her it seems as if somehow it affects her appearance,she worries about her looks but thata a normal teen for ya.

We had a lot of family/friends and when she saw a house she didnt like shed stare up at it and yank on my shirt.She wouldnt even say anything.She also claimed that when shed walk in the door or setain rooms she could feel the force of it.It was usually the same for me.

I tend to be a little sceptical of these things.... but there is a certain spot in the living room that my little boy used to stare at a LOT when he was younger. Ste also fell asleep on the sofa one night and said he woke up and could hear breathing.

That freaked me out a little

What a cool thread! I just spent the last hour and a half or so reading it! I was getting tears in my eyes for alot of the stories as well!

I've always wondered whether I have some sort of 'ability'. I don't think it's very strong, and I've never seen a ghost but I seem to 'know' people, if you understand what I mean? Though it seems since I've been on these antidepressants it's stopped. I almost feel like I'm a bit dead inside now.

The only thing that I can think that's happened to me is my Gran coming to me in a dream after she died. Just saying that she was happy and everything was OK and that she knew I loved her and goodbye. It was a nice dream. Very comforting.

ETA: I 'see' things out the corner of my eye. I remember once being at home by myself and being certain I saw someone at the door. I was sure it was a burglar! I had to go and check the house! I also get the feeling that there's someone in the room with me, watching me. Though that's probably just my imagination!

When my Dad was dying, we went to see him. My daughter was four and my niece was five. The girls sat in chairs next to a wall. My Mom was emploring my Dad to keep fighting. (we were still kind of in denial)

My dd told my mom "It's O.K Gramma, see Grampa's hands?" (they were curled up on his chest) "He says his hands hurt and he wants to die" Then my niece said "He's dying Grandma, and he says it's good" Then they both went back to playing with their magnadoodles. They didn't seem at all bothered by death. Then after the funeral, we went to my Moms house to be together. We had family in from all over the US. My daughter said "We are supposed to play games. Remember?" (we had no idea what she meant) She opened the game closet, it seemed like a good idea, so we played my Dad's favorite game. Both girls insisted that they could see Grandpa laughing at us.

My niece had said something like that twice before about other people that she knew was dying. The next two times my daughter experienced death, she was too old to believe I guess, so she didn't have any special insight.

But, my niece wants to work in a hospice facility. She is volunteering at a hospital right now, and loves it.

I used to freak my Mother out with things I "saw" or told her about. My Great Grandmother, Nannie, died when I was a little girl. The last time we visited my Great Grandmother in the nursing home, she was doing well- she had severe Alztimers, but that day, she recognized us all (she hadn't in at least a year) and she didn't talk much, but she just wanted to touch us all. After we left, when we got in the car, I told my Grandmother and my Mother that "Nannie wanted to say goodbye to us today so she could go to Jesus because she's tired." Three days later, she died. Also, almost two years ago, when my dog, Shayna, died, it nearly destroyed me. She was my "baby". After being depressed about four or five months, one night, I felt someone in the room with me in the middle of the night. I looked over at the door and I swear I saw her standing and felt her standing there next to some kind of angel? Jesus? light being? I can't explain it, but it's like someone in my head said that she was okay now and I was filled with this incredible feeling of peace. Immediately, my depression lifted and I knew she had made it to a better place. Then they kinda faded and disappeared, but it wasn't just a dream, because my other dog was laying next to me and she was very interested in what was going on in the doorway as well.

Could someone tell me more about what a "crystal child" is? It sounds like something my son might be. He always sees things and feels or knows things the rest of us just don't "get", with the exception being me- I "often "get" what he's telling me about or what's there but not there, but nowhere at the level he does.

This thread made my DAY!

I have oft wondered if dd isn't "haunted" herself... not in a malicious sense... but more in a sense that there seems to be "inorganic entities" around her; she draws" people and "things" to her... is a big communicator and very "open"... they wake her in the night and she can't get back to sleep without nursing... she apologizes when she comes in to get me, now... "Mama, I'm sorry... I cant sleep... sleeping is hard; the "dreams" wake me up... will you give me nummies, please?" I have sat in her room while she sleeps, and listened as mundane, corporeal sounds by the dozen run rampant (the neighbors in the duplex next door banging around, the door slamming downstairs, the dog barking...). None of these things even startle her... but she will swat at her face in the stillness, in the dark, and say "Leave me alone! I'm sleeping... I don't want to play!" She will yell out, and then begin to snore again... and I have felt a strange pressure to leave the room at times... at which point I respond by softly singing a prayer and sending out a strong admonishment... "I am her MOTHER, you... and I am a BIG energetic woman... you leave her be, leave her in peace... I will NOT leave... you are not welcome to disturb my baby..." This quells that pressuresome feeling, and then she is still, all is quiet (as quiet as it can be with the loud neighbors,etc!).

Warm Squishy Feelings..

ok, this is wierd. When my neice was born she smelled like lavendar (def a heavenly smell IMHO) Her mom thought it was because she'd put a lavendar lotion on her belly throughout her pregnancy. but I like this explanation better.

My daughters do it all the time espically my six year old she is so hyper aware of others feelings, when i had a miscarrige, she came to the hospital to visit me and was told me "I know that the baby is in heaven, he's watching down on you everyday, i'm sure he sad he cant meet you." Sometimes kids are just like that.
post #210 of 221
I freaked my parents out when I was little after I described meeting my paternal grandfather. He died when Dad was 15 and I wasn't born until something like 10 years later. I'd never seen pictures of him for some reason, but I described him in perfect detail. My great-grandma visited me in extremely vivid dreams for years after she died. I also used to see a weird tall dude in a suit and top hat but nobody has any idea who he was/is. Mom used to see him at her parents house, along with other things. She sees her mother all the time in extremely realistic dreams and I think Granny really is visiting her. Mom freely admits to seeing a lot of things that shouldn't be there yet she says she doesn't believe in ghosts

My kids are totally oblivious to all things otherworldly.

I havent seen a lot of it in my kids but I too have had my grandpa come to me in a dream after he died to tell me he is ok...it was very sweet and comforting.

I also have been asked by some pyschics if I am too( dont really consider myself to be..at least not a very strong one) but had one thing happen that was freaky....I went to the airport to pick up my son flying back from Phoenix to st louis...there were electrical storms and the flights were delayed so I was waiting for about 4hrs. As I sat there I suddenly pictured my female cousin on my moms side coming off of the plane after my son. This cousin i am very close to....I do have 2 other female cousins but see them rarely(every 3-4 yrs). Well when he exited the gates at nearly midnight I was very focused on him and walked right up to him...as I did someone behind him spoke to me "what are you doing here?" I turned to look and it is one of my other cousins I never see. I think the reason I saw my favorite cousin in the "vision"(it was just like a tivo moment) is because thats what I was familiar with.

I told my sister about this and said I could maybe make some money off of this by letting people know when their relatives were flying in if they wanted to skip town for a while

What a great thread!

I have two stories for you. One is my DS. First let me tell you I have a fear of bridges. I hate going over them. However, because I really don't want DS to pick that up, I am super careful to never talk about it.

So anyhow we're going over a bridge one day when he was two, and I'm having my usual fear scenario in my head, and I hear this sweet little voice from the back. "We're not going to fall off the bridge, Mama. It's okay. We won't fall. We are okay." My sweet boy! Ever since then it has been much easier for me to go over bridges.

The other story I have is not mine but a friend of a friend. She's super crunchy and when she was having her first baby she wanted to be in the hospital but no interventions. So everything is progressing (it was a mother-positive hospital, she had a doula and midwife, she did her research). However, as it's going along she started having a really, really strong feeling that something was very wrong.She told the doula and midwife and they said not to worry, most laboring mothers feel that way, it's normal, you can do this, etc. etc.. But she kept insisting something was really wrong. Finally she yelled and screamed that she needed an OB now and when the on-call OB finally came she ordered the midwife and doula out and told the OB, "We need to get this baby out NOW. I want a C-section NOW."

Apparently the OB tried to argue to but she was starting to have hysterics and scream (all the time being in labor!) and so they finally did what she wanted. She went into the OR -- and had a healthy little baby boy -- with an umbilical cord that was totally defective (e.g., the top layer was stripped and there were holes in it). If she'd birthed vaginally the baby would have died. Crazy, huh?

Oh I'm so glad i saw this thread- I love this stuff! My Mom has the gift, as do many of us on this side of my family.

I'd like to share a story. I was just under 2 years when my Grandpa (Mom's Dad) died. We were out of town visiting my other Grandma D (Dad's Mom). It was late at night and Mom was up talking to Grandma D. I was in another room sleeping. Mom says she suddenly heard me crying out "Daddy!" so she went to check on me, but I was sound asleep. She found out early the next morning that that occurred at the same time her Dad died.

When I was little my great Grandmother (Mom's Grandma) said I had an old soul. This summer I was at a coffee shop and a man was smiling at my daughter (she is now 16 mos old) and said, She has the eyes of an old soul.

I love reading everyone's experiences! Keep sharing!

When my neice was about 3 or so, she had an imaginary friend... I forget his name. She hadn't talked about him in a while and so we asked about him. She said, "Oh. He's not here anymore. He had to go be born."
post #217 of 221
When DD was two, she woke up from her nap one day crying and asking to see her grandfather. This was very unusual--she hadn't seen him very many times in her life and he lived many states away.

As it turned out, that was the day he took a bad fall that put him into the hospital. He never came out again. DD also never saw him again (he died before we could get there).

Now, his health had not been at all good, and DH and I had surely been talking about him a lot in the weeks previous. But...

(I have never told my DH this story, btw.)

I also recently was reading back in my journal and saw that on May 16 of this year, DD announced that she was pregnant and was going to be a "big brother" (I thought this was funny, so I wrote it down). DH and I had been TTC, but she knew nothing about that, and we had not been talking to her at all about her getting a sibling. My pregnancy test turned positive on May 28.

When I was a child, I was at my grandmothers house and she was talking on the phone with my grandfather. I had an overwhelming urge to talk to him, and let him know how much I loved him - but I didn't because at that time I never said that to anyone and didn't want to seem strange. I went home, and was up ALL night worrying and thinking that I should have talked to him. He had died sometime that night in his sleep (he was not 'old', in his 50's and in good health so there was no reason to think something might happen).

I love this thread! But I'm such a scaredy-cat!

As far as the original question... I rock DS to sleep and hold him until I go to bed. There have been a few times when I've laughed at something funny on TV and he started laughing in his sleep. It's so awesome. When he was only two weeks old, I held him while he was fast asleep and said, "I love you" very softly near his ear. He smiled clear as day. He did this again a few weeks ago, but I had to work a little harder and did a little dance for him to get him to smile in his sleep. He's only 8 mos, so I'm curious to see was happens as he gets older.

I meant to continue my first post, but DS needed me.

The best story I have DH's. When he was about 4 he would have dreams of American Natives. When he woke up he would look under his bed and once he found a bow. Another time he found an arrow and another time he found an arrowhead. He was sent to stay with his aunt for about a week and after that he never found anything again. He found out later that the house was built on an indian reservation and while he was away they had a grave removed from under his room.

DS needs me again...
