Kids Who See Ghosts, Guide Them Through Their Fears

What are ghosts? Are they real? Is it really possible to see them?

These are a few of the questions answered in this book. This was a very enlightening read. I learned a lot—not just about kids who see ghosts—but about how and why it is possible to see spirits in another dimension. The electromagnetic spectrum of wavelengths of radiation is huge, but the narrow band (between 380 and 760 nanometers) that we call light and that most humans can see is a very small fraction of what actually exists. For example, a rattlesnake can see the whole infrared spectrum and ultraviolet ranges. A microscope reveals a world within our world. A telescope shows us things we would never thought to exist 100 years ago.

Typically what we humans can’t see with our naked eye or what our brains can’t understand, is thought of as nonexistent, but other species can see these wavelengths. It is possible that the eyes of a child have the ability to see in more ranges and spectrums than an adult. Children have not been conditioned like adults have and therefore do not know that they are not “supposed” to see spirit walkers.

When in a meditative, altered, or dissociated state of awareness, it is possible to see into these “hidden” spectrums even if only momentarily. Younger children’s brain waves linger in the dreamy states. Any person under stress or trauma can phase in and out of the brain states that are open to seeing apparitions. Psychiatrist Carl Jung believed that ghosts and hauntings were universal occurrences. I believe that as society begins to accept paranormal experiences as scientifically and physically possible and more people are free to talk about their psychic vision, these gifts will be used in a positive and productive manner.

In the meanwhile children (and adults) who see ghosts need to know they are not crazy. I think it is about time we begin to let go of our preconceived ideas about what is “normal” and begin to help kids who see ghosts by guiding them through their fear. Adults need to allow children to talk about seeing spirit walkers without fear of being judged or reprimanded.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about this topic—especially those who work with children in any capacity.
