Gone But Not Forgotten
- Nov 29, 2015
I was at a barbeque when the topic of ghosts came up.My friend had brought her boyfriend with her.He was in his thirties and seemed perfectly stable and bright.He proceeded to talk about when he was about eight,he lived in a house that had a boy and girl close to his age there.Only he could see them.His parents thought he had imaginary friends. Looking back now,he said be is sure they were ghosts.Not sure if there are any other threads relating to this topic but it's something I'm fascinated by.
Everyone seems to know a child who has imaginary friends - insists on a place being set for them at dinner etc. However, the detail in some of these friends seems amazing. A friend of mine who is a very "normal" guy (whatever that might be) remembers having 2 such friends called "Bode" & "Kink". He can even recall seeing them sitting on the edge of the bath whilst his mother bathed him. He tells me one wore a top hat (which a child of 2 would be pretty unfamiliar with in the mid - 60's) and the other a flamboyant waistcoat. They both vanished just as his younger sister was born when he was about 2-3 years old.
I've heard various theories about these being spirit companions or guardian angels etc. The more I think about it though, the more it unnerves me, especially the detail that my friend can recall in his "friends". Are they imaginary or are they something that comes into the world with a child as companions/ protectors?
Anyone else have any examples or theories about it?
