Do you think babies and young children can...

see angels or spirits or something we can't?

I do, because I noticed they always look off and act like they are talking and laughing with something... I personally think its angels... I think that's why we don't remember the first couple years of our lives....

  • I do my best friend in the world passed away at a very young age and it was a tragic and extreme death. When my daughter was three she started walking about saying Bert. I thinking she was trying to say bird would correct her and not think much else of it. One day I had pics out and was putting them in a scrap book. My daughter got all excited and was pointing at the pic saying Bert Bert Bert Bert! Mommy Bert! It was the pic of Robert, my dear friend who passed away.. I still get goosebumps thinking about it.

  • I don't believe in ghosts. I'm a hard science person, but I have to admit these stories always intrigue me! Thanks for sharing @ gabby06 and @lolo0636. :)

  • Yes I do. However I think after time passes they lose that ability as they get more immersed in what is around them in every day life.

  • YES! I have a gift called "Discerning of Spirits". I've seen evil spirits since I was a child and I've seen Heavenly Angels since I was in high school.

  • We all have the ability. The issue is that most of us stop believing in what we are seeing and over time convince ourselves it's not there, which stops us from seeing... One more reason not to discourage your children when they say they are seeing...
