Is my child predicting our death ?

Posted on 6-27-2017 | Comment icon 11 comments

By: ConcernedMom2017 | Location: Lincoln Park, MI

Let me start off by saying that my 4 year old daughter is a happy, smart, and carefree child that has not experienced any tragedy, loss, or turbulence in her life. She has an older brother that is 10, and although we are Christian by denomination (Roman Catholic), we do not actively pray or go to Church. So religion, death, or spirits are not something she would ever encounter at home.

About 3 months ago, my daughter began talking to me about her "other mom". She refers to her as "Mama Shawn". She does not have a step mom, or any other woman in her life that could be spurring this idea. At first, I was almost upset that she would create this second mom as an imaginary being, thinking maybe I wasn't doing something right. But I didn't get mad and instead brushed it off thinking imaginary friends are normal. She would randomly say things about Mama Shawn intermittently throughout the week such as "Mama Shawn has a different cereal than you" or "Mama Shawn said she will take me to ride my bike tomorrow".

About a month passed by, and again I'm not concerned because it's sparingly brought up, but I awaken at 7am on a Saturday (I'm usually dead asleep at this hour on a weekend, as are the kids, so maybe mother intuition woke me up?) to find my 4 year old walking down the street of our neighborhood alone, in nothing but a pull up and a back pack. Obviously I panicked and went running down the street to get my child, heart racing. We get back to the house and I sit her down to talk to her about the dangers of walking alone, and she tells me that Mama Shawn told her to come visit. At this point I get frustrated, and firmly explain to her that there is no Mama Shawn, and that she listens to only one mom, ME.

About 2 weeks pass and there is no mention of Mama Shawn. I felt relief since I didn't have to worry about my beautiful 4 year old being abducted, but still a little regretful that I may have crushed her imagination. Then, without any prompting, on our drive home from school one day, my daughter tells me that Mama Shawn came to visit her at school that day and that she was getting things prepared for my daughter to come live with her. Now my panick and concern is aimed at the school...Who do you have working there named Shawn? What are people telling my daughter? What visitors are you allowing in? After an in-depth and rather emotional conversation with all of her teachers and directors, they knew nothing about where this could be coming from and guaranteed me that no one works there by that name or visits.

Now I started asking my daughter for more details... what does Mama Shawn do? Does she have other kids? What does she say to you? How often do you see her?

According to my daughter, Mama Shawn lives with a lot of other kids too, that are my daughters "brothers and sisters". They are various ages and like to play. Mama Shawn sees her everyday and they talk "a lot".

I decided to not push her anymore since she seemed to be getting embarrassed and figured I wouldn't bring it up again until she did. That was 3 weeks ago- which brings me to today.

Today we spent the beautiful afternoon riding bikes and going to lunch. No mention of Mama Shawn except for one sentence a week ago, but brushed off. We get home from our afternoon out, and I give her a shower, so she can get ready for bed. After her shower, I wrap her in the towel and take her to her room. As I'm drying her, she asks "Can I take this?" I ask her what she wants to take, and she tells me her towel. I asked where she wants to take it, and she says "to Mama Shawn's house". So I asked if Mama Shawn didn't have towels at her house, and she tells me that she wants to take it because it looks like the dress that Mama Shawn wears.

So, curiosity strikes again... As I brush her hair, I asked again, "Where does Mama Shawn live?" She tells me, "in the clouds". And I said, does she have other kids? (Trying to see if her original story would change), and she said "yes, lots of kids that are my new brothers and sisters". So I ask "Does Mama Shawn tell you anything or say anything to you?" And she said "She tells me that you love me very much and that daddy loves us very much". Feeling a little better about that answer, I asked her why she was going to go with Mama Shawn then (and put on the fake sad pout you do with kids), and she said "You're going too". I asked how we were going to get to her house if she was up in the clouds, and she responds with "we are going very soon. The car will drive down the road (motioning her hand forward), then it will do this (she flips her hand over like the car rolled), and then BOOM (makes her hand open like an explosion)! Then Mama Shawn will send her ladder down and we are getting on it. She will help us."

Now, I'm very concerned. As I start to ask more, her story never changes. It's always the same. Very firm, and unwavering.

Per my daughter, Mama Shawn doesn't have wings or anything abnormal but she is very tall and has reddish pink eyes. All of her "brothers and sisters" have white hair and black eyes.

What should I do? I've never experienced something like this before and not sure if I should be concerned. My daughter vividly describes our death via car accident (she has never been in one), and isn't scared since her Mama Shawn will help us.

Could she really be sent these messages? Is it just imagination? Is this "normal"? Can she possibly be talking to a spiritual being or someone that is really comforting her before a tragedy? I hate to think that way, but it's only getting more detailed and more concerning.

Have you talked about this to her father?

Talk to your local priest about it, you say you are Roman Catholic, even if your not currently going to mass in my experience thus far they are always there for you catholic or not, I am converting as we speak, or in the process, I think you should get help there, your daughter sound wonderfully gifted and I think she is communicating with the other side, good Luck and god bless, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers, a blessed home is a good idea as well, if I were in your shoes that is the first thing I would do,

It doesn't sound like she's describing anything vividly. It's just a kid with an imagination.  Your mind is for whatever reason, piecing it together in a way which gives it a fantastical explanation. Reading your story a few times, there's nothing in it to suggest anything weird.  And again, the way she has described the crash is about the least vivid explanation you can give. Just because she hasn't been in a car crash doesn't mean she doesn't know what one is, and her explanation is what you would expect.

it could be that she saw a movie/cartoon where something like that happened (car-crash, mama shawn) that could also be the reason why her story doesnt change and stays consistent.

Some people are naturally connected with feelings and the ability to see beyond what others can not.Some times children talk about things like memories because they heard relatives talking about things and they take that as a memory they had when they never did.

I have a similar issue with knowing when family members will die about 24 hours before. 7 times have been natural causes (though the latest wasn't actually related which was weird) and 1 car crash. Its spreading out to more people and bigger events. I feel the grief build first and then physically hurt until they pass. Some of them I didn't even know were ill, or really wasn't close to. Last time it was a major event with non of my family involved so am slightly concerned that this natural link is building. Mainly it has just taught me about how little we know and see, and how powerful nature ... [More]

  Like my Mama and her Mama before her, I am Erie Matriarch. I enter other realms of consciousness, and find my way back.  I move with ease into the state of Cosmic Consciousness, and then return to the physical. I possess others, like an angel,( but I am not sure they know I am with them.)  I connect to someone’s emotions with such intensity that I have spontaneous out-of-body into-another-body experiences-- share a single body, even though separated by great distances. I call it ErieEntaglement. On occasion, for a limited period of time, my awareness "leaves" the ordinary reality of the phys... [More]

So are you saying this is something that can never be controlled as its a natural spiritual connection some people have? Im asking because it seems to be building and becoming more precise, and I wondered whether it has anything to do with the fact that I have started with some discipline and control exercises in meditation. At the moment this is no gift as there is nothing I can do to prevent anything occurring. I decided if i trained my mind it would either go away as id block it, or become precise enough to actually be of use. At the moment the latter seems more likely.

It is a natural spiritual connection we all share and it is being felt by more and more of us. The powers that be don't want us to Awaken to a united consciousness.

If she is speaking to this mama shawn I wouldn't worry too much about dying in a car crash. I have had a lot of experience with spirits and they often say things that aren't true. I am not saying that Mama shawn is necessarily evil. If people make up stories so can spirits. Maybe that is the way Mamma Shawn died or as someone earlier it could be a case of reincarnation. Just try not to worry too much. If you worry about everything that could kill you then you are not really living. I hope some of this helps. Your story is very intriguing. I had an imaginary friend as a child named Fred who was... [More]
