Default Question: Children and the Supernatural

Do you think it is possible for children to remember previous lives or see (and talk to) ghost?

If you answer yes, do you also believe this goes away as the child gets older?

I understand how left field of a question this is?

The discussion is open.

Do you believe children can see or talk to spirits or in general pick up on things adults cannot?

Default Re: Question: Children and the Supernatural

I don't believe in previous lives.

AS far as the supernatural is concerned, I am up in the air on ghosts. Many Christians say that they don't believe in them, yet there is mention of them in the Bible. Once was when Jesus was walking on the water and the apostles thought it was a ghost at first.

MATTHEW 14:22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

ALso, the is the raised dead referenced when Jesus was crucified. Matt 27:50-54 “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.”

There is also the encounter of Saul with the witch of Endor when he called up Samuel

I Samuel 28

3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land.

4 The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem, while Saul gathered all Israel and set up camp at Gilboa. 5 When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. 6 He inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets. 7 Saul then said to his attendants, “Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her.”

“There is one in Endor,” they said.

8 So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. “Consult a spirit for me,” he said, “and bring up for me the one I name.”

9 But the woman said to him, “Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?”

10 Saul swore to her by the Lord, “As surely as the Lord lives, you will not be punished for this.”

11 Then the woman asked, “Whom shall I bring up for you?”

“Bring up Samuel,” he said.

12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, “Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!”

13 The king said to her, “Don’t be afraid. What do you see?”

The woman said, “I see a ghostly figure[a] coming up out of the earth.”

14 “What does he look like?” he asked.

“An old man wearing a robe is coming up,” she said.

Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.

15 Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”

I do believe that we have contact with angels. The bible makes it clear that we might be entertaining angels unaware

Hebrews 13:2
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

As far as who can speak to them? I believe that at one point many have. I don't believe that it is limited to one particular group

Physics postulates observer created reality. Children see differently. Who knows what is reality and what is illusion?

No, don't believe in past lives, and believing that ghosts are real is rather preposterous to be brutally honest.

Default Re: Question: Children and the Supernatural

As a scientist, I don't believe in past lives, and I don't really believe in ghosts.

However, I do believe there are other dimensions that we have yet to visualize and I do believe that the fabric of space and time can be warped in such a way that past (and future) events can interfere with an manifest themselves in the space and time.

Ya'll should read the book "Flatland" by Edwin Abbott.

I believe that children are our future.

We should teach them well and let them lead the way.

Kids pick up on things adults do not because kids haven't been taught that certain things are the way they are. Their minds allow their perception of things to be more abstract.

Default Re: Question: Children and the Supernatural

I've never knowingly met any child with this ability, nor do I believe I ever will.

When I think of my own childhood I can remember times where the supernatural(or unnatural) seemed present. But, when I look back it all seemed to be a reaction to fear or other emotions that my imagination elaborated on. For example, I used to go out in the woods and sometimes I could hear footsteps behind me. My mind took it to a whole new level and invented this whole spy conspiracy theory and why they were specifically following me. Whenever I stopped, they stopped. Whenever I turned around, they "hid." I told my parents. They didn't believe me (but some parents do and that is how I believe these stories of supernaturally gifted children arise). My parents just thought it was other kids or animals messing around in the woods. It wasn't until later that I realized I was hearing the echo of my footsteps crunching leaves while I walked.

kids in general pick up on things, notice things adults dont. i am seeing it with my 3 year old now. i am usually pretty good at noticing detail, but my son is constantly pointing out things he sees that i have missed. i think it has to do with getting older, we notice less because we are less fascinated by it.

Children can see things adults can't because they are still open minded. A young child doesn't KNOW ghosts aren't real and doesn't consider the idea preposterous. I also think animals can sometimes pick up on things that we adults can't see.

Not a scientist, but I think there are other dimensions as well. Stuff we can't really wrap our heads around.

Not ghosts or past lives, though.

I think if ghosts were real it would by now be commonly accepted knowledge that they were real.. But.. I'm not ruling them out entirely, don't wanna anger them.

My brother stood up in his crib out of a dead sleep and began asking my grandfather to pick him up while looking in the corner at the exact time my grandfather died. I witnessed with my own eyes that's when I began to believe in ghosts
