Lycan and I both saw an orb today; our heads snapped around to look at it, it was kind of funny. It was a bright ball of light in a dark place--no chance of reflection, passing vehicle, or sun glare. It was there and gone in a flash.
My son sees, plays with, and talks to the Spirits in our home all the time. It's nice to know that they're so friendly--makes me wonder if some of them are Ancestors. As long as they're nice to him and us, I have no problem with it. I have ground rules in place, I go over said rules and perform cleansing every so often, so they know what's going on. I don't tolerate negativity or Fear Feeders at all.
I can't wait until he's talking more so we can ask who he's talking to. Who knows? Maybe it's an Ancestor I knew? Or one of the guides and guardians in our lives? Be interesting and something that I'll definitely encourage. When I was younger, up until high school, I didn't have try to see/hear Spirits. But my ability lessened when I went to college. Slowly it became harder and harder to see and hear them. Now they only appear to me when they want to be seen/heard. Which is fine. As a Hedgewitch, I still work with them, even if I can't always see, hear, or feel them. I still talk to them, give offerings, and such.
Concerning my kids, I will encourage this ability and hopefully it won't dissipate as they get older.
