I Can't Believe I Am About To Talk About Ghosts...

Carolyn Tann-Starr 2009

I Can't Believe I Am About To Talk About Ghosts...

If it where any other kid I'd be smiling a bit absentmindedly, shaking my head and going uh-huh... but Noah is pretty literal and has been adamant about closing the bathroom door so he doesn't have to look at the ghost... Hmm...

He also made me carry him down the hall so he could close the bathroom door because I forgot to. Hmm...

I might have ignored it but he doesn't want Stephen to go in there either...THAT is the point where I realized we have to have this conversation. If shorty believes he has to protect the other shorty, something is definitely going on. What? I have no idea...

I am trying to get him to describe it. The fact that it isn't a girl or a boy is a wee bit alarming to me... The upside? We're having a conversation and he is not scared. The downside? I have to pee... this is creeping me out (LOL).

This is one of those evenings where I wish my kids were not speech delayed. Seriously...

I don't know how you can pee with a ghost in the room.  Certainly would stop be going.

I don't know your spiritual background but I'd advise praying and consulting your pastor or priest. My daughter had something like this too and some of the spirits out there are looking to "attach" themselves to someone.

Hmmmm.  You are ordained now Carolyn... but even before that... you DO have authority to cast out infiltration of demonic spirits ya know.... call me if you need ghost buster language to use!

I think having an other-worldly presence in the home is awesome ... but the BATHROOM??? Tell him to give you a break/

Jane, it has me researching like crazy because every time he passes the door he speeds up just a bit. It's distracting him, which is distracting me. He doesn't know what color it is either... I am casually asking questions and each answer makes me wonder what is going on.

Michelle, I am in the Bible right now reading four versions side by side. I gave him markers and typing paper. I'm hoping he'll draw me something so I can have an idea what's going on.

Diane, a very big THANK YOU. I reminded him he has a legion of angels encamped around him. Little man gave me a blank look and went about his business (LOL).

Richard, from your lips to God's ear. Seriously (LOL). ;-)

Hmm. Can't wait to hear the outcome of this. But I think I'd be doing some hard core praying and anointing some doors with oil! And the anointing doors with oil part is NOT something I'd normally do. But kids thinking they see a ghost would be a sign of all-out spiritual warfare to me! I'd plead the blood of Jesus over your children, your family, your home, and and wall of warring angels around your property. Nothing that is not of God is allowed to enter your home. You're children of the King and the Enemy has NO RIGHT to be there. I'd COMMAND anything that is not of God to get out right now, in Jesus name!

Now take that and pray it in first person ;-)  I'd add a bit more too, but this is a public forum..... laaa di daaa.... no controversial beliefs over here... NOT! lol

C - That is downright frightening. I don't know what I would do, but I certainly would be creeped out too. I hope whatever is going on disappears (fast) never to be seen again.

Posted by Judy Jennings, Tap into Judy's real estate expertise & resources. (Top Agent Plus) almost 11 years ago

Lisa, prayed and didn't sleep well. The kids climbed into bed with me (LOL).

Judy, all appears to be well this morning. They are playing in the shower and Stephen managed to drown a few toys in the toilet already. Life is good and our routine is normal (ROTFL). :-)

Don, I know exactly how you feel... I really wish I knew what he was thinking, feeling and seeing.

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

One of mine is afraid to go to parts of the house alone. He's fine if one of his siblings goes along. Gregory is also speech delayed, but fearless (just turned 5). 

I was afarid of a certain part of the house as a child. My parents were calm about it and never waivered. It didn't bother me that they didn't believe in spooky things, but I just knew there was something spooky. The happy medium Ann and I have struck is that we leave a light on but keep telling them that every hair on their head is counted. I don't know how we'll handle it with Gregory if he gets that way though.

J Phillip, I think the best thing we can do is show them that we love them and take it one day at a time. I talk to my kids about being protected and to help each other protect themselves but this is a new one for me. I have to figure out how to get him to describe what he sees in a way that makes sense to him without alarming him. Noah is pretty sensitive about a lot of stuff, so I take his complaints and observations very seriously. I have been speculating about angels and demons since yesterday. :-)

The 91st Psalm will give you and your wee ones what you need.  Your shield and buckler... read it to them and talk about what they see or visualize when you read it.  What is your shield and buckler?

Things come to the surface to be destroyed.. so this "interesting"  aspect of the bathroom could be exactly what is needed to push through the speech situation.  Just being able to communicate is a good thing.. I would think... so talking and sharing the Love to handle "it" can only result in good for the entire family.  FEAR  False Evidence Appearing Real.

Carra, you ROCK. Still studying and praying and wondering what my kid is thinking. What ever it was it isn't here anymore. I try not to down him with questions, but I do have a lot of them...

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 11 years ago

Dear C,

As you listen.. you will hear the answer.. and it may not come in the form of words from the wee ones... The voice you hear will be your own... not some boom box answer... and remember.. "I and my father are one".... so that means when you are really listening that voice you hear.. is your heavenly father.

The key is learning to decipher.. from "my" will and "thy" will...Patience must have her perfect work...

"What ever it was it isn't here anymore" 

Accept the fact the situation was HEALED! 

You demonstrated true Love!  get rid of the BUT's!


p.s. I sent your CD to the address on your activerain profile.. check it if it is the office address!



Posted by Carra Riley & Declan Kenyon, Helping people Transition at all ages! (Brokers Guild Cherry Creek Ltd) almost 11 years ago

Carra, that is indeed the office address. Thank you for the gift. :-)
