Mommy Will You Eat The Monster Please?


My daughter will be 3 soon, and I do NOT discuss any of this around her. Nor do I allow her to watch any movies with monsters or monster figures, and I do not allow her to watch video games that contain them either. She does not go to day care, and is not in school yet either.

So, now that all of those questions have been answered I have a question. WHY is my sweet little girl "seeing" monsters? No there is zero schizophrenia in our blood line either. She doesn't do it all the time. Mostly when it's dark outside, and she always ask me if I'll eat the monsters so they'll go away. I'm not sure why she asks me to eat the monsters. Nor do I understand fully the reasoning behind her thinking that if I eat them then they'll go away.

I prayed with her tonight, and taught her how to pray, and that seemed to comfort her enough to be able to sleep. Which I'm glad that she has found comfort in knowing that I will eat the monsters and that praying eased her. I'm just concerned that she would know anything about monsters, and I don't know what these "monsters" want from her.

When I put her to bed tonight she begged me not to make it dark in her room. When I asked her why she exclaimed that there was a monster. When I asked her where the monster was she exclaimed that the monster was standing in the door. Then when I told the monster to go away (doing the mommy thing). She exclaimed that the monster was on the floor trying to come into the room. So I kept saying over and over again for the monster to go away in the name of Jesus Christ.

When I asked her again where the monster was she said that it was in the hall. I told her that I would ask God to protect her and her brother from ALL evil, and I prayed over the windows, the closet, under the beds, and in the door. Then I taught her how to pray to God for protection, and then I asked her to pray with me. We prayed for everyone in our family. Then she fell asleep.

I'm just puzzled by the fact that she's seeing things. She's a very smart girl, and I've never exposed her to any of these things. Including never doing a séance (sp) and messing with an Ouija board. Also I'm confused about her strange request that I "eat" this monster. Why would she think that I could eat a monster? I would if I could, but how can I eat what I can not see. Is this real? I'm really confused.

i have training in the area fo early childhood development
And I had something similar happen when I was little I shared
A room with my sister and recently in the past year I found
Out we both saw hte same thing.

Not everything is bad ask your daughter if the 'monster' feels
Bad or good or nothing it may just be a visiting ghost, I
Suggest you send you daughter away with her father one night to
A movie or something and go sit in her room.
Tell the 'monster' to leave that it is not wanted this may be
Not just a figment of her imagination that there may be a
Spirit within the house.

And let your daughter know if she says she still sees the
Monster then I suggest
A rod of ash hung near her door (this can be small) to ward off
Malignant influences and leaves of the ash tree scattered in
The N,S,E,W of her room

Salt lines on her door and window.

Bloodroot - leaves and flowers in her doorway and window for

A satchel of Chamomile, pepper mint and lavander for a easy
Night sleep under her pillow

A branch of Elder abov eher door and window to keep evil out

Garlands of Fennel on your windows and grow in your garden to
Ward off evil spirits

And actually tell her what they are for the bloodroot and the
Ash rod/leaves can be can be out side the house the as well as
The elder branches.

It is importaint that you daughter knows about all this, so she
Can feel safe and and so she knows that you are trying to help

This is a way to keep her out of your bed and help her feel
Safe and secure in her own room then later on you can slowly
Remove bits and pieces from the room, as need replacing it with
A responsability like a living plant (Marigold stop evil from

The plant will help also brighten the room and draw her away
From the thought of monsters and bad things and protect her
Emotionally and help her feel like you have distroyed the
Monster. You can use these at your descresion though you don't
Need to follow any of these tips

well I don't know if she means "eat" I think she just wants to get rid of the monster
Also she probably says eat because in kids TV the characters eat anything in 1 bite
But are there anymore monsters?

This is one of the more fascinating stories I read. You mentioned in another story about a white alligator apparition you saw when you were a child. Is it possible that you're little one might be seeing the same thing?

I think you need to press her for more information. And if you have what you are calling a gift why don't you use it? MY friends kid said out of the blue one day that she saw a ghost watching her parents sleep. This kid (as far as we knew) didn't know what a ghost was. But they can pick things up without people realizing.
I think you need to ask her what it looks like. And I think you need to open back up to deal with the issue. We have all given opinions on many different ways to get rid of this monster. It is really up to you what you want to do.

If you eat the monster, could you save me a piece of it 'cause I'm hungry!

I agree with some who say don't worry. Could be little more than your childs imagination. Infact, I'd much prefer that to be the case rather than concluding that it must be a ghost. This is just my opinion but I think that if you get into believing that there is someghostly presence in your house, it would cause you unnecessary anxiety and fear which would not be good for either you or your daughter. I#d say for now, just take what she says with a pinch of salt, obviously continuing to confort her when she sees this monster. Like others have said, I'd be sure its just a passing phase. Please keep us updated:-)

I'm saddened to hear this story, I understand that for a haunting involving a child it's very distressing for the parents. As your daughter has decided these are 'monsters' without being exposed to such things before suggests that the creatures are talking to her and if she sees monsters perhaps she has been seeing something more benevolent that has told her that you can 'eat the monsters'. I'm guessing this because it's her phrase of choice that she seems to repeat, my theory is perhaps something has said this to her and she has misheard it, the only suggestion I can think of is that you could beat the monsters? I don't know.
I hope that's of some help? Good luck and I hope your prayers help to banish the monsters.

if you had the abilty to see things mabye you passed it on to your daughter and since you had it you might want to try to get back in touch with the "sight" to try to see what your daughters seeing also did your son have the "sight" like your daughter does if so see if he can see anything for you

God Bless from a 12 year-old,

In my opinion, she still is a little girl. When we're little, most of us go through phases not wanting to sleep in our bedroom because of a monster or some other scary creature. I just think she is going through one on those phases. No need to be worried.

But then again, I could be wrong.

Ockham's razor applied, she's probably just going through the same "monster" phase that I, along with every other person I know, went through when I was a kid. Kids are very attentive little people - they pick up things very quickly (it's how they're designed). I'm not sure where she picked up the "monster" idea, but like I said, kids pick up ideas quickly so it could've came from anywhere. When kids see things they can't explain - and I mean ANYTHING they can't explain - they often classify it as a monster, especially when they see something unexplainable at night or in the dark. Remember that kids frighten easily, and being alone in the dark away from a parent (even if only in a separate room) can be hard on a child. If the child isn't being physically harmed, then it's best to leave this situation alone and let it resolve itself. In all likelihood, it's just her imagination and she'll calm down after a while. Keep an eye on things, though. If anything changes dramatically, or if your daughter starts being physically harmed, consult an expert.

Since you have the ability, she may have it too. What does she say the monster looks like?
Lots of good advice here, especially using white light, teach her how to surround herself with God's white light of protection before she goes to bed. I'm sorry your little one is so frightened, I hope it turns out to be just a case of her being afraid of the dark, but you never know. You are doing good.
Best wishes

ah god bless her. I couldn't imagine the worry. Once my son was yapping away to himself (he's 2) in my friends living room no tv or radio on I paid no heed to his little conversation to himself until he started saying "ok,bye,cya later" and waving at the corner of the ceiling. Its so freaky you don't want your little baby to be exposed to something unknown to us. Id put a little bottle of holy water in all the rooms of your house. Or at the front door so that every time you enter your house you and your family can bless yourselves.

This doesn't sound paranormal, just a child with an over active imagination. You said she has a brother, she could have easily heard him say something about monsters etc Kids pick things up easily, no matter how hard you try and shield them.

This must be really tough and stressful on you. I would seriously consider having a priest come into the house and have you all sit down and ask this thing to leave if its really getting bad. He could also bless the entire house and cleanse any "evil" spirits.

If I could be any help to you, just ask!

Best of luck to ya

it's not uncommon for children of that age to "see" monsters. My kids went through it, all 5 of them. What worked for us was an elaborate, but fun, monster banishing spell.

First, at bedtime, we would go into each bedroom with a lunch sized paper bag. Then we would announce to all of the monsters that it was bedtime, they were welcome to stay but there were conditions. Then each child would tell the monster what his or her conditions were. Finally, we told the monster that we would be back in 5 minutes. They could either respect and abide by our conditions or they could climb in the paper bag and be taken safely outside. I would go I to the kids rooms, collect each bag and fold down the top while saying in a loud voice " monster, I banish thee. You are never to return and scare ________, if you try we will BBQ you". Within a week our monster infestation was dealt with.

The kids loved it, the monsters all left, problem solved.

One thing is for sure, she's learning what words have power over you. I'm not being critical, I have 3 daughters myself, all grown now. All psychic in one way or another. I don't make a big deal of it though, it's natural. Most people are born with psychic abilities. Just different degrees. Intuition, gut feelings, an itch in the back of your brain. It has many characteristics and a whole lot of names, and twice as many theories on top of that.
But if you react to certain words and phrases in a way that shows she's REALLY got your attention, she's going to continue repeating that to you.
Have you ever seen a 5 or 6 year old tell a joke? It's corny and cute and we laugh and let them know how clever they are for telling it. We have just doomed ourselves to listening, ad nauseum, to that stupid joke over and over again. It's the same principle.
Stop reacting as if it's end of the world. You can feel it inside, just don't let it show. Whatever she see's, if it's not friendly, will only feed off your fear. Always remember that it's YOUR house, YOUR child, Your rules. You are the boss here, you are an old hand at this stuff, nothing phases you, nothing scares you. And NO ONE can change those rules but you.
Work on the attitude, carry it like a sword. It's YOUR power and no one can touch it! Put that shoe on the other foot, give them a reason to pray! Stand tall! You can do it. You just have to want to.

Was her using the word 'Monster' the thing that threw you? If so, remember all you've told us that she hasn't been exposed to. She thinks it's possible for you to eat it and all will be fine, why?
Somewhere she's picked up this information, but really you don't know what she actually means by it, right?

Next you must try to not let all the remedies scare her either. If she's like you were at that age then you are going to have to do much better this time around for her. Now stop and breathe, deep breaths, now think, what was the reason you got so scared for your daughter?

You can start off by showing no surprise or fear in front of her, that doesn't help. Next you can think back to when you were a child and try not to make the same mistakes that were made with you to put you on edge so much now

My daughter hasn't seen sesame street in a REALLY long time. So I'm pretty sure it's not the cookie monster she's been seeing. The sad thing is that I can't see what she's talking about, and I'm not sure if that's because I've tried so hard to block all things like this out or if it's because whatever it is doesn't want me to see it. The other night she woke up screaming mommy mommy mommy and of course I practically flew out of my bed and ran right into her room. She had been asleep or at least laying in her bed trying to sleep for a few hours. I keep praying, and it keeps happening. I just hope she doesn't have the same "gift" I had as a child where I kept seeing things that shouldn't have been there. (I'm not psychophrinic either) I have some physic abilities, but their not as strong as they could be. Basically I have all 4 of the c's, and a very strong intuition into things. I feel really bad because I know it's not my fault and quite a few people in my family have these abilities. However a lot of them are not in tune to them. Anyways, I just feel bad because I have the "touch" is what I call it, and I don't know how to explain to my daughter what she's going through with out making it worse because she's so young. A little help please. I'm willing to give out my e-mail if anyone can truely help me. Thank you.

Don't worry, be strong, you are doing all the right things. Probably your daughter thinks that if She can see the "monster", you probably can as well, so therefore She probably thinks that you can "eat" the "monster".
Love & Light, Rachel ❤

This might sound a little too easy but does she watch Sesame Street? Has sne ever seen the 'Cookie Monster'?
I am grasping at straws here but it could explain some of this, maybe? 😕

Oh my. I am sorry. When I was little I spelled out the word "devil" with my building blocks. I didn't even know how to spell my name. But there it was "devil" My mother asked me where I learned that. I said "he told me" I don't know who he was. This memory is very fuzzy to me. I think that you should continue praying for protection. It gives you strength. Ask St. Michael for help in protecting your home. Envision white light surrounding your house and your family.

THis is what I say. "Only the purest and brightest white light can penetrate these walls. All evil isnide is banished out and all evil outside can't come in. I banish all the wish do to harm. I destroy all darkness with my bright white light. Only love and happiness exists in this home and around my family. Only happiness and purity can walk through these halls and be next to my family. I ask St. Michael the arc-angel to offer protection against the evil that is trying to harm my family. Please give me the strength of the purest white light to fight these intruders. I command all darkness to leave my house and only white light to come in. As I will it so shall it be"

You must sit and think about all these things you are saying. YOu must see in your mind the white light coming from above and filling your house and surrounding your family. You must hear in your mind. THe screams of the evil entities fleeing from your home. I will walk around my house demanding that they leave me alone. I've always had success because I know my strength against these monsters and if I need help I will have my husband do this to. Your strength has to come from within you and you get strength through prayer so please continue to pray and banish the evil from your home.
