I never saw a ghost as a child (that i remember) but i was sensitive...however you have to know when to distinguish between sensitivity and an overactive imagination..which i also had.

I would often feel there was something following me up the stairs at night. Was it a ghost, i doubt it. I was just a scardy cat going up the stairs. Even now sometimes i get spooked when i know there is nothing there.

Also, i once saw a movie about a monster in a closet and spent the rest of my childhood being nervous of a built in closet in my room. There was nothing wrong with the closet, my imagination was playing tricks on me because of the movie i saw lol.

Its a slightly different feeling when there is possibly something there though...hard to explain as its more intuitive, although imagination can play tricks. Its very convincing when it lets rip lol.

I do believe that some children could be sensitive to seeing such things, and some may not. But sometimes it is a childs imagintion doing most of the work too.

Nothing wrong with being imaginative, as long as you know thats what it is.

Boo ya. I took enough time away, so I figured I would come back.


Children have vivid imaginations.On top of that, the parents can bleed their on beliefs into the children. If the parents believe it, then I gurantee the children will as well. Its the same way children brought up in a particular faith, will tend to be that faith as an adult.

Maybe it was your dad or someone else who dressed up like that to scare you?. You know, some dads like wearing santa claus outfits on christmas day. Just saying. may not be the case.


About the children, let kids be kids.. It's not unusual for them to have imaginary friends, you see them talking to themselves,dolls, house pets and television sometimes. Like the kid who lives beside my house, he likes to talk to himself in his own room at night. I know it's odd but there are parents out there who go "OMGzz11, My kid is so pure and special, he can see ghosts cause his heart is so pure and innocent". These things have been said a lot of times before, just repeatin..

Now, any parent should be able to understand that and be able to manage it, unless things really go out of hand with your kid and then maybe you might want to look for help.

These kind of things usually disappear when we grow up?, Do we lose our ability to see ghosts and spirits because our heart gets infected with evil?. Or maybe it's just that we develop a better understanding of the surroundings and world around us and mature?.

What if some of the claims are actually paranormal though? Everyone tries their best to de-bunk something when it really could be paranormal thats why things like that are hard to explain, its paranormal which just means above the normal

theres no Normal. only Common.
and youd have to define what you think is paranormal.
and, sure, some claims may not have the down to earth explanation that some people on here give. but, they also dont really have any evidence to make them 'paranormal'. its on the people making the claim to prove it.

the truth is out there....

I would never call anyone here a liar but at the same time I think it's important that children who make such claims are examined by a doctor. IMO the odds are much greater for a child to have a psychological issue than a paranormal one.

Just like no one can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt ghosts exist,"NO ONE" can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt  that they don't exist

What do you mean theres no normal? Paranormal is when normal explanations don't cut it.

dont gotta prove they dont exist.
you only have to prove they do if you believe in them, or say they exist.
as of now, they dont necessarily exist.

Alright I think I see. Then a paranormal phenomenon is such that has no known scientific explanation.

hmmm, yeah i guess that can work here. in a sense. or, just an Common explanation. so, people assume it has to be something Uncommon. which, in this case is turning to the paranormal.

You don't have to be a child to see the images of dead people , they visit you in those quite relaxed moments when the brain is in a state of serenity

I believe that our loved ones who have passed over are trying to make contact all the time , and occasionally when our mind is in a receptive state , they get through .

With children , their brain is much less cluttered than an adult , and so they are more receptive .

The Ark of the Covenant was the sacred chest, overlaid with gold, which occupied the inner sanctum of the temple and symbolised God's covenant with his people.. Covenant= The promises that God made to his people as recorded in the bible. The Ark of the Covenant has never been found .
