kids and spirits

My three year old daughter sees something in our house. She calls it her dragon. She often plays with it. It funny because sometimes she says it will bite her finger as a warning or game. Shes not old enough for me to ask what it looks like and have her discribe it. How do you tell whether its a ghost, other wordly or a fey? We are pagan and when we moved it stayed behind. we invited it in and something else came with it that she said was another dragon. For three nights my daughter would crawl into our bed and say dragon was scaring her. We told them to leave and my husband blessed the house and she hasn't had a problem since. How do I know what the second one was?

I'd say have your daughter color pictures, lots and lots of pictures, of what she saw. I know kids that age aren't the best artists but get her to make enough of them you'll eventually be able to make out something out of her drawings. -Tink

talk to your daughter about the other dragon, get her to draw it, see if you can work it out. You know yourself well enough that when you invite spirit into your home you open a door. Do you have a purity or protection spell? If so it may help to use it in areas that you feel are troubled. This has generally worked for me blessed be

We do have protection spells up. When we invited the dragon in my husband lowered them thinking I was talking about lowering them completely. I meant for him to open the house only to those who dodnt mean I us harm or fear. Basically friendly spirits and fey allowed. They have chants and spells in books for it. We've always already had those kinds of presence in our house and never had to open up for it so maybe we just lacked the practice for that particualar working. As for the drawing my daughter doesn't draw. We've tried it. She draws a line and calls it a dog. But I'll try again. Thanks for the advice.

That's not uncommon that she doesn't draw, my 3 kids weren't much into themselves at that age. Try fingerpainting. It's more fun for the kids than just coloring because it's a mess you're ALLOWED to make. Also try clay, play-dough or Moon Sand. -Tink

I guess I really dont knwo what to tell you other than maybe teaching her little tricks etc and definately keep talking to her about it (when she brings it up of course) and due to her age, just pay close attention to what she says then think about it from a 3 yr olds perspective if that makes sense....Until you have more info I dont really know how you could find out what the second visitor was...Sorry I cant help more than that..but maybe someone else will be able to...

Thanks for the advice. She loves talking about them she just doesn't know how to explain them other than dragon. We tried showing her pics of fey and other things and she doesn't put the two together. O' well. Hopefully the nice one will be around when shes old enough to tell us about it.

I am not so sure the first one was positive, you mentioned it would 'bite' her finger as warning or game, the thing is some will come in be playful / friendly but this is misleading, It is a good idea to trust your instincts, you mentioend you are pagon and that the home as been blessed, which is a good thing it is always wise to do a good smudging and cleansing of the home, to keep out negative since she is so perceptive would be to do the cleansing/ smudging then put black stones such as apache tears or hemitite over the doors and windows of the home, when doing this make it clear that certain positive energies were welcome, but that is all. it will block out negative. one way to tell if it is ghost or fey or what ever is to meditate or try to comunicate with it, Communication with this would be best, way, if you don't trust your own skilsl or intutions find someone you do who can give you insights, that may be helpful, As for how you know what the second was you already were told out right that it was a negative energy / being / spirit. Because nothing good would harm or scare a child. This was something that did not come from love. If it had it would not have scared your daughter.

I'm not totally sure, but I might have seen a dragon of some type not too long ago. It is hard to describe, but it was like invisible....but I saw the shape of it fly by....does that make sense? lol. I remember thinking, "that is so cool!" I really really love dragons though. I never understood why.

It will be hard to find out exactly what it was that came in but I think if you got some Wiccan or Pagan books on spirits, God, Goddesses and other creatures and had her look at the pictures she may see something close to what she saw. I would sage the house, do a protection spell, and also do some shielding. Be careful of how you invite the spirits in. Blessed be.

I don't know but you can check on the internet and there might be something on there that might be able to help you out. I hope that you find the information that you need.

there is only one other thing that comes to mind at the moment and because your daughter is to young to describe what she saw is to ask her if she can draw it for you even though it maynot be a good one you maybe able to see what it was-am glad your husband blessed the house you shouldnt have any more problems if in any doubt though put four quartz crystals in the four corners where the spirit was/is mostly as you know this will protect your daughter-littleowl

Sounds like you invited more than a dragon along. Pictures are a great way to get the point across but don't limit it to that. Try some sand or even mashed potatoes (not together of course) .. the more things you give her to try and build something or make something with, the better idea you'll have of what you were dealing with.
