Are there ghosts of children?
People, today, still debate whether or not ghosts exist primarily because many have either had, or not had, personal experiences with spirits. For years, fundamental christianity has further confused the understanding about ghosts, even though ghosts are found within the bible. Fundamentalists still insist that ghosts are impossible to exist, because they believe that when one dies they must be in either a heaven, or a hell. Furthermore, fundamental christianity will still teach that there is an "age of accountability" which thus excludes children from ever being in danger of going to an eternal hell of punishment. Therefore, they reason, all children who physically die are taken up to heaven. This doctrine is not found within the Bible as claimed but is an assumption based upon a passage where Jesus purportedly said,
"Except you become converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of heaven."
Unfortunately, this Bible verse, like many others, has been misinterpreted and twisted into meaning something else other than what was originally intended when it was spoken two thousand years ago. In this passage, to us, the crux is that we should "unlearn what we think we know and be open to learning something new." That said, the point is that some religions have tried to erase the fact that people are having encounters with ghosts.
Despite religion's attempts to misinform society about the existence of ghosts and ghost children, many people still claim to believe in, as well as witness, ghosts. Ghost sightings vary as people have described spirits of both genders, different races and nationalities, from different time periods, and of course of all ages, young and old - even children. Are people who have seen ghosts all crazy, or has some of our society simply closed our minds to the idea of life after death? If ghosts exist (and they do), we wish to explore how a child ghost could be possible.
We have explained before that when a person dies, they are typically greeted by loved ones, consumed by an overwhelming light, and experience a life-review. When children die, it is no different. Loved ones in spirit will seek to help the child transition to the light. Yet, for various reasons, sometimes, a child will not move on and slips to remain behind here with family, friends, a pet, or their former environment. "But, why?" one might ask. Often times, when a child remains behind, it is due to emotional trauma of some sort. Perhaps, the child is looking for his or her parents, a brother or sister, a beloved pet, an item that is lost, etc. Maybe the ghost child experienced a traumatic death, or felt responsible for the death of another, or possibly, is unaware that he or she physically died. After all, the ghost child is still alive, correct? It is possible that the kid might feel little difference even though the body is gone.
We Create Our Prisons
Although the reasons and scenarios could be many that cause some children to remain earthbound as ghosts, what needs to be understood most is that being trapped here is not pleasant, eternal bliss. The emotional pain is still felt, along perhaps with loneliness, isolation and a lack of love being felt. This is what true hell is: a state of mind. It is a prison that any mind can self-create. We have the ability to make our own hells. If we have the power to dream, if we have the power to hallucinate, if we have the power to create, then why couldn't we mistakenly create a believable, but painful, illusion for ourselves? The mind is very powerful, and can sometimes believe things to be true that are false.
Even though ghosts of children do walk among us, it does not mean people are not trying to help them. We teach that spirits from the light do come and try and rescue them, but sometimes their attempts fall on deaf ears. The child ghost may not be able to perceive the helpful spirit, or simply may choose to ignore all help due to a mental focus on the past, or due to fear. Yet, some ghosts of children do seek help, attempting to gain the attention of those of us in the physical world. One must wonder if the ghost child simply is unaware of spirit helpers, due to being focused solely on the earthly realm. Whatever the reasons may be, we can assure you that the loving spirits with the light are always there trying to reach lost children and more than willing to work with those of us on Earth to help them.
Looking for the Signs
Ghost children may try and gain our attention by movement of objects, hiding of items, making noises, whispering and speaking, dream visitations, and of course simply appearing. Often times, their attempts are not understood and may be perceived as frightening or simply disregarded for whatever reason. What is most amazing is that children seem to be able to perceive the ghost child better than adults many times. In ghost investigations, often the children of the household will have seen the spirit, rather than the adults. This could be that the children are more open-minded and less conditioned to the world around them than adults, thus making them able to perceive spirits better; or maybe children seem more approachable to the child ghost.
Invisible Friends & Playmates
Many times, children will have an invisible playmate for a season, but parents often never would consider that perhaps the child is playing with another child in spirit. Child ghosts often still have a playful spirit, even though they find themselves lost. Some ghosts of children are indeed attracted to the living, seeming to enjoy time spent interacting with a family that may or may not be their own.
Even though ghost children do exist, they are not to be feared. In fact, we need to not only understand their current condition but make attempts to communicate with them. If we can help these little ones find their way home to family, friends and loved ones, then we have done a great service indeed.
