Do Babies See Things We Don't!

Updated on June 21, 2011

An interesting question and I’ve always been wondering about it. Some say angels surround babies, and some say they get visits from spiritual souls, or even dead people.

Call me crazy but in a way I believe in that, especially if it comes to spirits. I believe in other-worldly spirits, whether they are our dead people from the afterlife whose souls still wonder in the real world, or just supernatural spirits, or even angels and demons.

You might argue with me in the sense of “the natural law” and “scientific proof”, but I can say back that there are still lots of mysteries in our world that we don’t know about, we are not the only species in this world, and our planet “the earth” is not the only planet.

Supernatural means what’s above or beyond what is natural, that’s unexplainable by natural law. Religious miracles are supernatural claims.

In “The Holy Quran” God says: And He “The Creator” creates what you don’t know”. That is also being said in the original “Bible” and “Gospel”. That for me is enough proof we are surrounded by unknown mysteries.

What made me write this hub is what I saw with you my almost two years old son.

He was lying down while I was putting his clothes on after a shower, and as usual after a shower he’s a bit upset and whining for I don’t know what the reason is. Suddenly he is calm and so interested in something that’s above him, and he started following it. He followed it with his face to the right, then to the left, and then to the center. And he was smiling at it.

I honestly looked up, of-course I didn’t see anything. I even looked in my son’s eyes to see what caught his interest.

I wasn’t imagining. It was so obvious and clear he saw something in the room that I didn’t see.

Probably I should be scared, or concerned. But the way my son smiled at that thing he saw was very peaceful. And hey, it calmed him down. I know babies sense the good and bad in others. And I’m sure if my son did really see something and smiled then that thing wouldn’t be harmful.

It also happened before with my son, but I didn’t give it much attention until I saw it this time.

It was a Sunday morning. My husband and I starting to wake up, and our son’s morning singing coming from the baby monitor beside me. Suddenly we hear him laughing loudly. It was like somebody is there tickling him. My husband jumped of the bed to our son’s room and opened the door waiting to see a person standing there or even an angle with big wings. He saw nothing. And once he was in the room my son stopped laughing.

I’ve done some searching. I found lots of parents have similar stories like mine, with their babies looking at something and crying, screaming, or just laughing. One mother said that her two kids were in the bathtub, happy and playing with the water when suddenly they looked down the drain whole and jumped panicking outside the tub. She looked in there and saw absolutely nothing. That gave me the goose bumps.

At least I am glad that whatever my son is seeing is making him smile and giggle :)

Many movies have addressed the afterlife and spirit’s visits. This is a list of few of them with a brief summary. Most of these movies points out that appearances of supernatural spirits or creatures seem to foretell disastrous events.

1.The Mothman Prophecies

If you are a thriller lover and a believer in spirits and the otherworld, this is the movie to watch.

A psychological thriller film, starring Richard Gere as John Klein, a reporter who researches the legend of the Mothman. It is based on actual events that occurred between November 1966 and December 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

The film emphasizes the idea that whoever believes in spirits will get visits and sings from them, whether they are peaceful of frightening.

The movie is based on the book “The Mothman Prophecies” which investigates the UFOs and other strange phenomena. The book is set in the 1960s, when the real-life sightings of the entity “the mothman” occurred.

The film ends with the real tragedy of the 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge, while it was full of rush-hour traffic, resulting in the deaths of 46 people. Two of the victims were never found.

2.The Sixth Sense.

A thriller film. It tells the story of Cole Sear, a troubled boy who is able to see and talk to the dead, and a child psychologist, Dr. Malcolm Crowe “Bruce Willis” who tries to help him.

The twist end of the film reveals that Crowe himself was unknowingly dead.

The film’s point: Souls of dead people with unfinished business will haunt and wonder the real world until it’s complete.


A science fiction/disaster film, starring Nicolas Cage.

It’s about a boy named Caleb receives an envelope, and his father, John Koestler, a professor of astrophysics, takes interest in his son’s envelope and soon realizes some of the digits represent the dates and death tolls of every major disaster over the past fifty years, and suggests three disasters still to come. Caleb begins receiving visits from mysterious figures and he hears their overlapping telepathic whispers.

What I liked about this movie is that the mysterious figures “The strangers” wants to help kids and protects them from natural disaster.

But I thought that the ending of the movie wasn’t well done

4.The Others.

A psychological horror film ,starring Nicole Kidman.

Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman) is a Catholic mother who lives with her two small children in a remote country house. The children have an uncommon disease characterized by photosensitivity, so their lives are structured around a series of complex rules designed to protect them from exposure to sunlight. The daughter begins to hear voices and see figures of other people in their house.

At the end we find out that the mother and her two children are dead, and they are still haunting their house because the mother’s soul is still troubled after she had actually smothered her children and shot herself.

      I wish to express some apriiceatpon to the writer just for rescuing me from such a problem. As a result of researching through the world-wide-web and seeing principles which are not powerful, I assumed my life was done. Living devoid of the answers to the difficulties you've solved as a result of your blog post is a critical case, as well as the ones that might have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your web blog. Your actual ability and kindness in dealing with everything was priceless. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't discovered such a stuff like this. It's possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the impressive and amazing help. I won't be reluctant to refer your site to anyone who wants and needs tips on this matter.

      When I was about 15 months old, my mom told me she'd hear me late at night talking in the other room. When she came in she saw me standing up in my crib and talking (actually talking) to someone/something across the room. She said she called my name to get my attention and I just turned my head to her. She said to this day the blank look I gave her freaked her out to this day...

      hi Nady.

      i was on the internet trying to find answers when i stubmled across your page. i recently had an experience where my 7 month old some (who is a jolly baby), started crying around 3am. he didn't show any signs of discomfort or pain, no fever nothing. he had never cried like that before and my husband and i were taking turns with him but he seemed to only be better when my husband held him, but only to start again. i considered taking him to ER but something jus told me to pray. (now i'm a very spiritual person) so i jus started blabbing on in prayer out of panick until he calmed down around 5am. and thinking back i regert not having have asked the holy spirit to help me pray coz at least he could have guided me as to what i was supposed to pray for. my son fell asleep next to my husband and thot we were stil going to take him for a check up later on that day. when we woke up, he was stil not 100% and as we were preparing to take him to the doctor; my husband received a call that his best frend died in a car crash around 4am. and from there everything went crazy and we ended not taking the baby for a check up, but then in the midst of crying and all, i realised that my son was back to his old jolly self as nothing ever happened. and now my husbnad and i couldn't help wondering whether the baby was sensing the crash and that prompt i got to pray was for that as well...?

      I can't say if I believe or not, the thing is I don't have enough evidence to prove whether there are different things out there or that there aren't.. so for now I'll say maybe.

      I know belief is not something you scientifically prove, that's why it's called belief, but that's where my mind took me so far until proven other wise :)

      Yes, I do believe there is much more than meet the eye. A lot of things we don't understand.
