I Ain't Afraid Of No Ghost


I have always said that I don't believe in ghosts, but because of my son today in my heart of hearts know that I am lying.

In 2006 my Mother and I moved into an old barn house that had been converted into a duplex with a newer living room/bedroom attachment on the back. My room was upstairs in the original part of the house and my Mother's on the main floor of the attachment. When we moved in there was a bed left in my room that we had to destroy in order to get it down the stairs. The bed was placed about a foot off the wall (I placed my bed right against the wall.)

Before I was pregnant I had witnessed lights flickering, turning off and on by themselves but always chalked it up to old wiring. Then 4 years ago while I was pregnant with my son I started waking up always between 2:45 and 3:30am hearing a woman murmuring from the vacant second bedroom upstairs. Again I chalked it up to old house moans and groans.

The first time I saw the elderly women I was asleep, only it felt so real I could have sworn I was awake. I was lying in my bed and heard a noise so I sat up to see a round stumpy woman at my bedroom door. Her movement was staggered and as fast as I saw her at the door she was in my face trying to swat me. I fell backwards in a panic and landed in a one foot space between the wall and my bed. Instantly waking up shaking uncontrollably just after 3am. It scared me so badly I was no longer comfortable sleeping in my room. I moved myself from then on out to the couch downstairs in the newer part of the house.

About a month later while I was asleep on the couch I had awoke again sat up and looked into the kitchen (which was in the original part of the house) to see the same women sitting at the table staring at me. I lied back down and she was gone.

The reason I am writing this is because I had never experienced anything ghostly like that before I became pregnant with my son and haven't had anymore experiences like that now after having him. But my son however is going to be 3 and can speak especially well for his age. He has been hearing and seeing things that he likes to tell Mommy about. Recently we have moved into a older home and my son has told me that there is a man knocking on the door downstairs on 2 different occasions but this doesn't scare him (he still likes to play downstairs).

There is a rabbit however that he calls "ghost bunny" who terrifies him. Always telling mommy where it is ("ghost bunny's upstair" or "ghost bunny is hiding in the corner"). Also, I was always very close to my Grandmother who passed way in 2004. My Mother and I have never talked to my son about my Grandmother (mostly because we miss her and it hurts still) about a month ago while shopping, my son out of the blue told me that "Mamere Bea" was in my heart and she missed me. My heart sank and I asked him if he had seen Mamere Bea but he just kept telling me that "Mamere here..." and pointed to my heart. It was a odd thing for a 2 year old to say. How would he know to say something like that? Also last night he asked to keep the light on in his room. When questioned he said that someone keeps saying "hello" and it scares him when the lights are off.

Again, I still tell people I don't believe in ghosts but with everything that I'm witnessing its getting harder and harder to tell my son that there is no man knocking on the basement door.

Must be the stress from being pregnant.

But hey, if you really aren't afraid of ghosts, I suggest joining the Ghostbusters! 😆

He still see's/hears the man knock on the door and not only in the basement. There is a little boy that likes to talk to him at night. Sometimes they are together according to my son.

I have heard a knock twice. The first time I was with my son and could have sworn I seen the door move but my son didn't say anything so I just brushed it off. The second time I was putting my son down for bed I jumped and automatically said "what was that?!?" my son just smiled and me and said it was the man... Lol I kissed him goodnight (everyone is going to kick me in the a** but...) and told him there was no man.

Also he has seen my mother's cat that has passed. I caught him shooing nothing off his lap and telling the air to "get down" (lol) and when asked what was wrong he told me that Percy (the dead cat) keeps jumping on his lap. We were in the car just leaving my mothers.

Hi truth. I think that indigos have been around for a lot longer than the late 70s. I also don't believe in the 'healing evangelist style' aspect of it. I do wish that people wouldn't be so 'stage motherish' and making entirely outlandish claims, and that they'd take that video off YouTube and READ about this. The old stuff is what needs to be read, IMHO, not the new sensationalist bs. There's nothing 'sensational' about indigos. Indigos are different... Not Demi-gods as a lot of the online info nowadays portrays.

I do believe that some people are more sensitive than others. I definitely feel that you should acknowledge what your son sees/hears rather than telling him that it's not real or that it's his imagination.

I do have to call BS on indigo children as per ( though. The fact that they are sensitive is not where I have a problem. Nor is the fact that their intelligent. I have a problem with this whole "children born in the 80s [or late 70's] thing" and them stating that these children are showing signs of evolution just because they're more sensitive. Chldren, regardless of what decade they were born, tend to be more sensitive. Often well into their teens. Some taper off after that point while others retain their sensitivity.

To claim that children born in the late 70's and 80's have somehow evolved because people are finally beginning to be "OK" with the idea of their kids seeing spirits is preposterous. Like I said, children have been seeing spirits for centuries. It's just that now people are more open to the idea rather than saying stuff like, "he's talking to his invisible friend" (implying pretend friend), "that was just your imagination", "oh, she's always talked to herself like that", or "it was just a bad dream". Many people still deny. No doubt. However, I think modern society is more open to the idea now than it was 50 years ago.

From the high intelligence, ADHD, autism standpoint, I'd like to use myself as an example. My IQ is at least 140. I've been tested. Also, I've always known I was a bit "different" socially and found out why about 3 years ago. I am a high functioning autistic. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. I think I've always been a little sensitive. However, I think I shut things off somewhat when I was a kid. See my Orange Glow story for details. I think I'm starting to become more sensitive again now that I have more of an interest in the paranormal. That said, I'm sure that there are many kids out there who have an average IQ and no ADHD or form of autism that are sensitive. So, I think the claim they make in the video is completely unsubstantiated.

Here are some questions I'd ask the producers of that show:

1) How many children were in the test group?

2) Were all of the children of above average IQ? If not, list IQ ranges and how many kids were in each range.

3) Did all of the children exhibit ADHD or some from of autism? If not, list the various "disorders" and how many kids had each.

4) Were all of the children of a specific geographic location? If not, list all of the locations the children were from and how many from each location.

5) Were all of the children from homes with parents in higher income brackets? If not, list the income brackets and how many children were from each.

On to the next thing... The healing bit. That was starting to sound eerily like TV evangelism to me. "I can heal you, but only if you believe." Yeah, I can imagine him saying to the parents beforehand, "please make a minimum donation of $2,000". Cue the Genesis song Jesus He Know Me ( I think that teen girl was a paid actress (referring to the indigo children video). She wasn't that believable.

That's my take on the video. I do, however, believe your story and definitely feel that you should support your son's ability.

Hello Missy M, I liked your story, and your title. Perhaps you should ask more questions about the man your son hears knocking. But as long as he doesn't seem scared, I wouldn't worry about it. Take Care.

interesting story thanks for sharing 😊
It does sound like you now believe but did not want to, was it a case of ignore it it will go away?
Im glad you have had a change of heart for your son's sake like indigo said others might not be so accepting of him with this gift but with your support he could go far.

You have some great advice here I hope you take the time to follow it (im sure you will)

Also I am glad to hear that ghost bunny is just a kids story, kids can be cruel but without understanding what they cause, I hope your son gets over ghost bunny soon.

Iv discovered this morning that there is no "Ghost Bunny". I talked to my father in-law this morning and he informed me that the 6 year old next door to my in-laws was playing with my son and told him a scary story of a bad rabit who bites called ghost bunny to scare him. Well it worked my son was super scared...😆 Very happy to know that the only entity that scares my son is a made up story from a 6 year old. Feeewww! 😉 Makes sence too cause that's the only entity that he called GHOST. Everything else he says "the man" or "someone". Even when he told me about my Grandmother he said her name and didn't call her a "Ghost". He doesn't even know what a ghost is.

Lol, no. My ancestry doesn't make me any more or less likely to be like I am... We are merely more open and accepting of these things, and our children are sacred, we don't punish them or teach them to be shy about things most people would consider too uncomfortable to talk about.
I do agree very much with Rook, try his method. I also firmly believe that you DO believe and YOU see as well. You were taught to NOT see and believe. There is no shame in seeing. None. You aren't insane and you don't need medication.
I believe that all children SEE. They're taught NOT to see by people feeling that it's wrong, or too uncomfortable with mortality or things of paranormal nature that they fear for their children instead of embracing the NORMAL thing that's inside all, or at least most of us. For me, this is the most normal thing in the world. I was born this way, like your son, I was incredibly advanced, saw things, heard things, knew things. I had a very supportive mother and was incredibly close to my native grandfather, they taught me that it's perfectly normal, but we aren't supposed to talk about these things with people outside the family. It's MUCH more open now. People CAN talk. We are learning that most of us hide because of being 'civilized or social'. There are just too many of us now NOT to talk, lol, and I enjoy this freedom. The folks that considered these things to be crazy 40 years ago now accept that we are the way we are! In fact, they educate themselves on us every day, while we educate ourselves on our capabilities. There is nothing to fear anymore, except the fear of having the opportunity to learn and not taking that opportunity.:-).

Indigo has some good suggestions, remember Knowledge is Power... Research is always a good thing...

If there are things that are scaring your son you may wish to try this in your home and all Family Members...

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

Please keep us updated and thanks for sharing this experience with us.

I 100% believe your story and enjoyed reading it. I just do not understand why you tell people you don't believe in ghosts, when you obviously do.

Oh, and Indigo? Do you think that maybe your half Native American ancestry may have something to do with you being an indigo? I am half First Nation Iroquois status Indian which would make my son 3 generation.

Hi Indigo,

Thank you for your quick response. I have googled indigo and crystalline children and that has really shed some light on a possibility for my son. Thank you again.


In his 3 years he has always been so advanced with everything.

I have heard that children can see ghosts but have never really believed it (Children have wild imagination's and are like parrots. Always repeating what they hear). I still would have never believed that something maybe knocking on our basement door if it wasn't for what he had said about my grandmother (which my Mother and I would be the only ones who would talk about but NEVER do so there is no way he could have known to say something like that). I have also heard that dreams while you are pregnant can be more vivid. So I never really considered that situation may have been paranormal because of my son inside of me. It wasn't until he had started telling me about things that he sees and hears (like my grandmother). Now I feel that I was probably not dreaming her up at all.

I was very close to my grandmother, closer then most people are to their grandparents. In 2004 I was in my apartment and had an overwhelming panicked feeling that something was wrong and I should call my "Mamere Bea". When I tried she didn't answer which isn't unusual but I couldn't shack the feeling so I called my mother and told her that Mamere wasn't answering the phone. My Mom assured me that she had spoken to Grandma and that she had told my mother that she was going to take a nap and not to bother her. Now my Grandma NEVER told people not to bother her so that WAS unusual. I tried to call Mamere again about 45 minute later and still no answer. By this time I knew something bad had happen so I had Mrs. Wade (the women that lived down the hall) to check on her. Mrs. Wade found my Grandmother dead in her lazyboy. She had died of a stroke and was later discovered to be having said stroke when I first felt panicked like something was wrong an hour before we found her. No other's have died close to me since then.

Hi, it appears that your son is a sensitive. It is much better to talk about these things with children like this than to try to talk around things. Google indigo children. This will somewhat explain to you what your son is, although, more than likely, he isn't an indigo, he's surpassed that already.
You seem not to fear the ghosts, you seem to be more concerned with his ability to see what I suspect you KNOW is there, but cannot see for yourself. As a parent you fear that you can't protect from what you can't see.
You can contact folks in your area for smudging of the house, etc, and I recommend this to rid the house if stumpy, the bunny, and the gentleman, however, your son will continue to see others everywhere. When you google indigos you will find support sites for indigos and chrystaline children. I recommend that you visit the sites, join support groups, educate yourself about his 'gifts' or 'condition', lol...that's what I call my own. Not a gift. A condition.:-). Sometimes it's a blessing, other times it's an annoyance.
A helpful, informed, supportive mother is the best thing that a child like this can have. He won't have many other people that he will feel comfortable discussing things like this with. During his lifetime most social groups will accept HIM, but he won't feel like he fits in entirely with THEM. The online communities will help you both.

I wish you both much love, light and happiness in your life of learning and growing together. Let him teach you as much as you teach him.
