The question is why can some people see ghosts and some can't and why children always seem to be able to? One theory is that children are Innocent and believe everything that they see and don't judge or try to figure out logical explanation for why things are there or not there............they just are what they are. They don't over think everything like adults do. They have not had years to adjust their way of thinking to accept or not to accept things like most adults have. So when then do we as adults lose this gifts............shy of being a Medium or Psychic? Well are parents did it to us like we do it or did it to our own kids. How many of you told or tell your child that they just had a nightmare, or there is no such thing as ghosts to go back to sleep??? Or you just imagined that............their is nothing in your closet or under your bed now go back to sleep. Or told someone your child had an imaginary friend. All these things may very well have been a ghost that your child was indeed seeing as a child. But with repeated training from mom and dad they are programed to stop believing in ghosts till one day they know longer see them. And most at a certain age will never see them again. I was one of the ones but still to this day does still see them LOL. I just stopped telling my parents that I did see them. So just think about it this way......... when we tell our children it was just a bad dream we may be really inadvertently teaching them to mistrust what they may be seeing. Which can lead them to block what cannot be real. Either way if that child is not believed by their parents it is very frightening for them...............I should know...........I was that child.
Now adults can either see, hear, sense, or feel ghosts too and you don't have to be a Medium or psychic to do it. Its just that some people have a better signal then others. You may have better luck seeing or feeling say a loved one in the comfort of your home by yourself instead of surrounded by a bunch of people in a grave yard. One thing that you do need to have is an open mind and know that the possibility is there. Locations make people more sensitives then others............find yours. You may only see something in certain places and not others. If you are a very sensitive person then it won't matter where you are. Main thing is you have to be patient.

 Re: Why can children see Ghosts?
   

I had a disadvatage..............my mother knew she had a gift to see things yet she would tell me that what I saw was just my imagination or a bad dream. She knew this gift/curse ran in our family. But I guess she hoped it would pass over me. I did not find out about that till after my mother died and my great aunt told me about it. But when my daughter at a very young age started going through what I did at her age I did tell or explain to her what was going on and told her that I did believe her. So things will be much easier for her. I did tell her she is NOT to tell anyone else but me about them or the relatives that I told her that have them too. So at least she does have someone she can talk to about it that believes in her. She is now a teenager and she has not lost her gifts yet and like me they continue to get stronger with time. The main point here is we as adults stop our children from believing or lossing what could be a gift from the things we say to them as they get older. Remember that imaginary friend may really be there!

I think alot of why kids can and many adults can't is our society. Someone that says they can see hear things are labeled as crazy.. At one time some of these people were looked highly upon. At one Paranormal Conference i went to they was talking that seeing spirits, hearing, etc was norm for society until science got involved and that all went out. But now since 70's there has been some sciencetists that have admitted that there is things that they can't explain using science. Some have been studying psychic's etc to find out more.

So i think we are becoming back to being more open to it.. So more open we become more kids will grow up being open.. Right now it also depends on your parents how you was raised etc. If you have parents that more open to it.. more open you will be when you grow up.. Meaning you won't lose as much of your ability you did as child. But even with parents like that you still have society which inturn will take some of that away from you..

I agree that as we age we are told again and again what we can and cannot do.  As children however we have no idea that we have limitations, as well as the biological fact we are designed to absorb everything we come into contact with to build our knowledge base as children.  It stands to reason that in that state of hyper-learning we could detect the presence of paranormal activity where adults cannot.  The fact that adults are inundated with worries,and responsibilities children don't have explains why they cannot clear their minds and see the subtleties of paranormal activity like children. It takes bleeding portraits and slamming doors to get through to a person with problems of their own.

Very well said.


I have always been open to the paranormal world wither it being big foot, aliens to ghosts, but i grew up with parents who themselves were open to it all. I think it would be very hard for kids that grew up with closed minded parts to come open minded themselves, and then a ghost would have to come up and slap them in the face for them to be open to them.

So many people only see black and white, they don't allow themselves to see the gray area's, or they think. What about emotions many of these are in the gray areas.

     Yes emotions or feelings are in the gray area.  I have been on many investigations in locations that looked scary, but felt fine.  At other times I have been in the most mundane places and the whole team would be overwhelmed by feeling of dread for no apparent reason.
     My parents were also open minded, which helped me to be.  My father was what I like to call an open minded skeptic. He didn't take things people said at face value, but he placed complete faith in what he saw around him.  He was a farmer with a genius level IQ,and was in touch with the land.  He listened to the sounds of nature, the smells in the wind, and from the soil.  He watched what the animals were doing, and how they acted, and always looked at the sky.  That was the example I had, now kids are taught to watch the weather channel if they want to know whats going on outside. I consider myself lucky.

As I have stated before I have always since childhood been able to see spirits if they were anywhere around me and wanted to be seen.  Wanted to be see being the key word. Being an investigator you know you can't make them come out and play at your command and on your time no more then getting a child to preform in front of their grandparents in order for you to show them off. My mother tryed to dismiss what I was seeing although I am sure she knew I was telling the truth finding out her background later. I did not do that with my daughter. And she still sees and hears them still at age 16. Now my son never has. My niece  and my nepheu have either seen or had some strange things happen with them before. My sister although can see or feel things of the paranormal nature yet wants nothing to do with it. So her kids will most likely out grow it. However with her daughter it got so bad at one point I did have to talk with her so it may stick with her like it has with the rest of the women in our family. What I saw as a child scared me for the most part and I stoped telling my parents about it altogether. But they never went away. With my daughter I never told her she didn't see what she told me she saw. And she sees them sometimes when I don't. So call it my opion, call it a theroy, call it what ever you want, but maybe if parents stop telling kids what they see or don't see maybe we would have the answers that we are all looking for now. I can still remember my daughter talking in the backseat to someone I could not see while in her car seat . I asked who are you talking to sweetheart? She said Nancy I about fell out of the car. My son was 7 years older then her and could not say granny so he called my mother ginnie. My mother died one month after my daughter was born!!! We never said Nancy around my kids and that was not a common name back then or now. She is 16 now. My sisters son was playing in my back yard talking to someone at age 3 and swinging a tire swing. I asked him who was he talking to and swinging? He said Jimbo. That was my brother that died a long time before that child was born and he did not know his nickname. So yes I believe children can see spirits. But it doesn;t have to stop there. If there parents are open minded  I believe their children will be too. And if they saw spirits as a child its quite possible it will follow them into adulthood. And even if their parents wern't...........it may anyway LOL. This not saying that those that have never seen one won't. Given the right situation and being opened minded,  and at the right place at the right time you can.

I've always said that some people are naturally able to do things, psychic, mediums etc, with out anybody training them, then you have people that after being taught can be as good or better then natural born person. Then you have people that even with teaching they really just can't get the hang of it, but they can do some, this doesn't mean they couldn't be as good as others, it's just not sinking in with them, they may not be trying hard enough, or attention isn't all there). Then you have people who doesn't try at all.

I think you are natural and this keeps you more open then any of use that has to work and be taught.. Also i think those who are naturally able to do it, don't take what society has told them to heart, as they have always experienced this alot more then us that have to be taught.

This is just my theory

I don't think I am any kind of psychic or medium to begin with. I never have. I have had other people call me things like that just because of a few things that have happened over my entire life time. But to me to be someone like that you have to be able to do that all the time 24/7 like John Edward's are something LOL. Maybe it is something you have to work at or pursue , I have no idea. Or maybe I need to work harder at it. As far as I am concern what I have done is quite normal............at least to me. I thought everyone could do it as I child and as a teenager. And personally I still believe anyone can. Now someone told me the other day that I was a ghost magnet............now maybe there is something to that! I have never heard that term before, but it makes a little since to me. And the more open minded you are on this topic the more  capable you are to seeing are feeling different things and I think the spirits know that too. But I also feel that they chose who they want to contact also. So in a nut shell I don't think that I can do anything that anyone else can't do. I will go months on end and never see or hear or smell anything Paranoramal at all. Then all of the sudden all He&& breaks lose. It just all depends on where I am or who decides to drop by Undecided

It seems to me that almost anyone has the ability,we just tend to get caught up in what we are "supposed" to believe. However, when we stop rationalizing and just let things happen, it is amazing what we are able to experience. Children do know understand the societal norms so they just accept things as true instead of rationalizing them away. When I have let my guard down and just let whatever is going to happen happen instead of predetermining what "should" happen, that is when I have experienced the most. Just think about when most people witness actual apparitions, it happens at night, when we are in bed, relaxing and not keeping our guard up. It seems to make sense.

Well said.. I to think that our society is the mean reason why many of us don't experience as much. you think about if you tell someone you see, experience something you are looked at like your crazy. So many of us try to hide or ignore what we are seeing in fear of what the results can be.

Not only do we hide or ignore it but we try to find another reason for it. Because lets face it.......who is going to believe you anyway? The only person that's going to believe in ghosts is the one who sees it with their own eyes. So think how a child feels when their own parents don't believe them? Let alone an adult telling another adult. You have all these people running around trying to prove ghost are real. Then they hear countless stories coming from hundreds of people with their own in-counters and they still don't want to believe in them because they have not seen it for themselves. Forget about getting pictures or tape recordings because that can get thrown out to easy. But the funny part of this is, even if they did see it no one would beleive them either. Now adays people are so interested in proof that they forget they have to be open minded as well.So like Mel said the ghosts would have to slap them for them to know they were even around. And with some skepics I don't even know if that would work!
