The subject of ghosts can be a fascinating subject but the sad truth of it is that it is still a subject that deals with death. I would like to say that death is only sad for the people that are left behind but that is not the truth either. The person who dies does still miss the people that they had to depart from although their new perspective on life, death and the time they are apart is a very different matter completely.
The types of ghosts I want to discuss today is a touchy subject matter. I want to talk about the ghosts of children. There is no doubt that losing a child is the most devastating loss of all. It makes me sad that I find ghosts of children when I'm on an investigation or even just when I am out and about. A child that passes away should have angels or a guardian that escorts them home so why are there so many children that did not go back to where they should have?
One reason is that they do not realize that they are deceased and that could be even more confusing for a child than an adult who doesn't understand that they are no longer alive. A sudden death is usually the reason for a deceased person to feel that they are still alive in spite or the fact that their surroundings are not quite right. If a child is old enough to understand that people die and go to heaven or home - then that could keep them from staying here on the Earth plane unless they are holding on to their family and refuse to leave them. If the child is too young to understand death, then they may want to stay with their family.
Now I do want to say that there are no set rules that any being follows when they die. What I mean is that even if a child is very young and does not understand death, that does not mean they are definitely going to be a ghost and not move on. It is my understanding that every child has angels that guide them yet there are still some that stay. The ones that do go home - and this is the majority, they can and do come back to visit so please don't think that if you lost a child, they are stuck on the Earth plane. All family members come back for a visit.
I want to do much more research on children ghosts because I want to know why all of them are not escorted home. Yes there is free will but they do not understand at that age so I want to learn more about that. I have had some experiences where I came across a child ghost and made some type of communication with them. There were many types of responses. I even lived in a house where the ghost there was a pre-teen boy who knew he was deceased but was looking for his mother. No matter how much I tried to get him to understand, he just refused to move on where he would be able to be with her again. I want to add that I do have EVPs where spirits tell me that they are reunited with loved ones.
I was on an investigation where we picked up EVPs of the voice of a little girl who liked to mimic some of the things we said. When we stated the time that our investigation began, she repeated it and it was in a happy voice. We also heard her singing. We later found out that a mother and her little girl were killed a few houses down from the one we were at in a car accident.
We were in another place where EVPs of a baby crying was present on several recorders as well as being heard audibly by some. There were places where children were playing with toys while we were there. We saw balls rolling, toys moving and sometimes a laugh. It is apparent that even though they are deceased, it doesn't mean that they are unhappy. Usually, when a person - even if it is a child, dies, they don't stay where you see them or hear them a lot. If that is the case and they are there a lot, then it could very well be that they have not crossed over and have instead remained on the Earth plane. Of course, even this has its exceptions like the case of my father. He died and did cross over. Then he spent a lot of time on the Earth plane visiting me and my sisters because he knew my mom was going to pass over in four years so he waited for her. He wouldn't have known her life plan unless he crossed over.
It is also possible, and this can apply to adults who have passed away as well, that if a person who is still alive is grieving so badly that they refuse to let the person go, they can anchor the deceased person to this plane. It is horrible for us when a loved one dies, but even worse for us and our loved one to anchor them here. Death is something we must all go through some day, so when it is our time, we need to move on. Once a deceased person goes back to where they came from, they live in their soul once again and not trapped in the illusion of a physical existence that can't "live" in this world in that state any longer. It is not fair to them to not let them move on. Once they get settled, they will come back to see you and this is much better.
Now I wanted to share a heart-warming true story with you about a child ghost. I know it is true because I am the one who witnessed it first hand. Two members of my investigation team and I were out on a day investigation to scope out a cemetery that we were interested in perusing a formal night investigation. This was a very beautiful cemetery and it exudes such a peaceful atmosphere during the day but according to others that have investigated, it is very active at night. Day investigations can still provide some pretty good evidence as ghosts are present day and night. There are other entities that can be present in cemeteries as well - not just ghosts. Spirits will come back to speak to you if you are there wanting to talk to a loved one.
We were there for a little over two hours and toward the end of the investigation, we met the owner of the cemetery. He was working around the cemetery while we were there but didn't disturb us at all. We didn't know he was the owner but we figured he knew what we were up to. So near the second hour mark, he came over and said hello. He was a very nice man who seemed interested in what we were doing. He told us that his son was buried in the cemetery and pointed in the direction of his grave. His son was only ten years old when he passes away - so sad. The man told us that we are welcome to come back for a formal night investigation and we thanked him. I told him about the communications I have been making with spirits and the experimental work that I have been having a lot of success with.
After he left, we continued to move on to the next segment of our investigation so we decided to find the owner's son's grave. It was a large, black marble headstone that had a picture of the little boy on it. The ledge of the headstone had a baseball, some toy cars and other sentimental things. Even thought this child has been deceased for twelve years, you could tell he was greatly loved and so very missed. I wanted so badly to help this man but it was getting late and we had to leave very soon.
I tried using my full spectrum camera and my sls camera to see if I could record some kind of response from this child. We spoke to this little boy telling him we were just talking to his father and that he missed him so much. I explained to the little boy what the cameras were because the sls camera really looks wacky and I didn't want him to be afraid. I explained that these cameras would allow me to see him and then I could show his father which would make him very, very happy. We did this for over ten minutes but nothing happened. I asked the little boy if he could stand next to his headstone and I tapped the stone. Several minutes later, my sls captured a figure of a child standing exactly where I asked him to. He was there for a short time and he let us film him. I then told him that I promised to show his father and I know this would make his dad so happy. I said, "Can you wave to your dad for me?" As soon as I asked, the right arm of the figure came up so he did hear me. This was a very touching moment.
The little boy wanted to show his dad he was still there. At the time of this writing, I have not yet shown the man the footage as only a day has passed and I have to go through all the footage in case we got something else for him, but I know he will be very happy.
The picture below is not of the little boy, but of another ghost I got in my home with my sls camera. I didn't take those pictures off my camera yet but if you want to see the little boy and see how the cemetery investigation went, stay tuned because we will be releasing a video here on this website, on Facebook and on YouTube hopefully within a week. I will make an announcement on the home page of this site and on Facebook.
