Psychic Kids

I recently read about a new show on A&E called Psychic Kids. I find most shows that deal with the paranormal to be unbearably cheesy and boring. But Psychic Kids looks kind of cool.

Personally, I wouldn't be at all surprised if some kids have special abilities. I think young people's minds are more open to the unusual--largely because they haven't yet been taught what to think. (For the record, I never had any psychic abilities, but I did see a ghost when I was quite small.)

The video below introduces you to three "psychic kids," including eight-year-old Faith. She claims she can speak to a boy named Freddie who died in 1886 at the hands of his mother. Whether or not it's true, (and the show offers some surprising evidence that it might be), it's hard to find fault with Faith, who seems like a smart, brave, 100% trustworthy kid.

See what you think!

Check out the rest of Faith's story here:

I have dreams that come true, but only random pointless things, like what song will be stuck in my head when we pass a landmark on the way to school or something.

Yeah. And why is it always such a pointless thing?

Lol, I saw a ghost too when I was little Ananka! It was creepy. I was at my friend's mom's funeral when I saw this white blob-ish thing that looked like an aurora borealis except white. It lasted for two seconds... I think I said this... -o-' But that scary and coolish... You can talk to spirits! OoO

Hmm... The last one reminds me of the book "Breathe." This kid's dad died and he and his mom moved into another house. Then the ghosts start appearing.. ^^' Why don't people believe in ghosts?

I know one girl who was staying at her cousin's house and saw a ghost, but she thought it was some little girl who randomly walked into the house. She told her to get out, and the girl's eyes got all black. The next day she started getting random bruises and the room she was staying in gets completely messed up for no reason.

I have dreams and they come true. One time I had a dream that I was standing in a room and everyone was screaming and crying and and every thing was burning and that the earth was rumbling. A day later The twin towers fell.......and once I got realy mad and I chaneld all of my anger on a pencil and rose and fell then rolled of the desk. I can also see auras and goasts sometime. And even more horribly I got really mad again and the person I got mad at collapsed!

Aww. And I was really looking forward to that. xD

My mum says that my grandma is psychic. I've never asked why though. She also believes in ghosts (as do I), so there may be a connection. I read an interesting article while in a waiting room on a Sydney medium who's also a paranormal photographer. Apparently, anyone can do it.

I don't, however, think I myself am psychic, per se. Although, strange things I write in my stories tend to happen in one way or another (divorces, a few deaths). But that's probably just intuition.

i have multiple ghosts in my house. believe it our not, they drove each other out. one was my friend, named henry, he lived in my fireplace. he was 15 years old and always messed with the stuff on my desk. we used to fight about the order of my pencils. we would open my desk drawers at night, and change the order again. i didn't really mind him, and we were friends. one, day i was sitting in front of a window in my hallway, i saw this black mist in the shape of a young boy. instantly i new; he was 3 years old, his name was charlie, he was mentally unstable, and hated me. i was SO scared. i have never been so scared in my life. i ran screaming and crying downstairs and broke down. soon i felt all of this energy just every where, like they were fighting. they were. both ghosts stopped appearing. one thing i know about charlie is that he was a complete maniac. i believe he was murdered, but i am not sure. i also felt like he had or tried to kill someone or something it was horrifying. i also have dreams about what will happen the next day, and they often (not always) come true. also, i can sometimes see what i think are auras. they are almost like and energy field i feel around someone, when they are passionate about something. i first noticed it when i watched someone preach. their aura suddenly was visible to me. they were glowing, and it was kind of blue and see-through. it was only when they really cared about something. i didn't see it on people who were uncaring. i also know someone who can see auras. my dad says that when i was very little i would watch moving things that he couldn't see. mom refuses to believe in it though. i have done research on it, but i stopped when it came to me to much. i can't comtrol it, and it's unpredictable.

Lol, sometimes my dreams come true too! But just a random part from the dream... ^^'
And Raph, something like that happens to me too. I go, "Oh! I think I win this game, I think I'll try!" It's a game that you win purely by chance, and I won. Stuff like that happens pretty frequently to me.. -.-'
Found this:
If anyone thinks they or someone else's physic,
submit to A&B!

Wow... awesome, but I'm not psychic. I can do Astral Projection though... and meditation. It's fun because you seem to hover over the world... get in other people's minds.... yeah, it's fun. I want to talk to Freddie, though :(

Do you believe in ghosts, Ananka? I do.

Oh, and my friend and I were arguing today.

Me: It's ANN..aka.
Her: No, it's ONN-aka.
Me: ANNaka!
Her: ONN-aka!
Me: ANNaka!!
Her: ONNAKA!!!!!!! GRRRR!!!!

Um... which one of us is right?

I saw a commercial about that and it looks so cool! Wow, it would be interesting to be physic, but all the same, really freaky.

Kitty: OMG I'm not the only one who reads Cliff McNish!

Everyone: I've seen a ghost too. =) Only one, but I guess that's more than most people have seen. I used to be able to make the lights go out by using psychic powers, but I haven't tried to do that in a while. It used to work best when I was so bored it felt like my brain would explode... hmm... work is pretty boring sometimes, maybe I'll try it again!

You have to be careful with people who go around saying they can talk to the dead, lots of them are slimeballs making money off people's grief. >_< Anyone who does that needs to be punished. (in the name of the moon!)

Forgive me for bringing religion into this, but I believe, as a Christian, that when you die, you go to either heaven or hell; there's not a third option to stay behind on Earth.

I've heard (not from a particularly reliable source) that ghosts are energy orbs, which I think of as something akin to ball lightning. (Actually, that's what I think many UFO's are).

However, I personally think (religion again--PLEASE, no one get offended or anything) ghosts are demons of some sort or another. Not the deceased.

Patsee: No, thanks! Don't worry about sharing your opinions here, religious or otherwise. I'd never thought of that before. But it's a very interesting idea.

1:31 PM  
Anonymous Raph said...

Patsee: To be honest, I'm not really sure what ghosts are. And I have no idea what happens to the deceased either. So your explanation sounds like something I agree with in a way.

But when you say ghosts are demons of some sort, do you mean they have to be bad? Because I have reason to believe that not all ghosts are malevolent, unlike my sister (who believes they're more evil than Voldemort).

That is really pretty wierd---but I DO believe that the show is a fake. Fun to watch-very. BUT in my opinion the girls are probably just getting paid to do it. Faith's mom is a bit too dramatic. ;)

But I completely believe in ghosts. No question.

Ananka, have you ever read these scary story book series (forget the name!), they have a pretty cool story. It is actually based on REAL research and facts. Actually, I am going to go post on iut right now. xD

O MY GOD!!! that freaked me out SO much, because i was watching that, and then someone started making all these noises.I was SO freaked!!! but it turned out to just be my dad putting his bike in the garage. but seriously!

I dont see as much of them anymore, but when i first moved to the town i currently live in
(i was 7) i saw what i believed to be ghosts. i usually saw them out of the corner of my eye, but i know i wasnt just seeing them. once there was one in my house, but the other times it was outside. like i saw this little girl in an old dress from maybe the early 1900's or 20's or something, just standing on the sidewalk watching my car go by, but everyone seened oblivious to her. so my experiences where/are nothing as hardcore as these kids, but i had my moments. i dont think ghosts are all ecil, but some are seriously traumatizd (wouldnt you be?), and are therefore disagreeable. sometomes i wish i could do more than just occasionally (hardly nothing at all anymore) see ghosts, ya know?

haha1 i was right about how i thought how to pronounce ananka.

ps: we, the regular commenters of kiki strike,rule!!

pps: LTBB11: thats rad, was henry nice? did u guys talk just about other things than just pencils? i hope so. please tell all.

ss chick: yeah, we did. he mainly talked about how he missed candy. i don't know why he was so fixed on stupid stuff, but he seemed to take the whole "dying" thing very lightly. we wasn't concerned in the least about it. recently, however, i have been trying to for the most part "stiffle" ghosts for the sake of friends and family. it's not fun.

Well, there are always Jinn aren't there? Jinn are good and Shaitan are bad. I've heard that Shaitan can take over peoples bodies. Like if you go near a river at night...or something like that...? I'm not entirely sure how they take you over but they can. And I am not talking about the 'djinn' in the "Children of the Lamp" series. These are not genies.

Jinn are made of fire, smokeless fire. Whilst Angels are made of light and Humans are of Dirt. We can see Angels when we are in our graves. And we can see Death (Angel of) when we die (makes sense).

I have dreams that come true too, eerie... once I had a dream about a my favorite Beatles song on the radio while driving in my car and I turned it up in my dream and then got rear ended by a Maroon Van. I woke up with a sore neck. 2 weeks later, the same Beatles song comes on the radio and I turn it up... I was hit from behind. I jumped out of my body and was looking down at myself from above the car. I saw that I wasn't hurt so I jumped back in. It was the same woman and the same maroon van as in my dream. So sometimes, dreams aren't meaningless, they are trying to tell you something. I have had this ability since I was 3.
My oldest daughter has abilities too, she astrotravels at night. And my son, is too afraid of things when he sees them. Recently we have seen and heard Great Grandma in our home. It used to be her home.

The show looks pretty phony, but it's quite entertaining. The resturaunt thats down the street from my cousins' cabin is supposedly haunted. Apparently the employees would come to work in the morning and pots and pans from the kitchen would end up in the bathroom or lounge, or on the beach. this could just be a group of raccoons, but these inncedents have been featured on TV so yah...

wow, lots of people here have seen ghosts....i have a LOT of deja vu, but sometimes i dream about having deja vu in a moment that has't happened, and then later on the thing wil happen and i'll remember the dream...sometimes, especially more when i was younger, i would do that jump-out-of-your-body thing, a bit, or my mind would start narrating my life to me in the third person. it was annoying.
