My Sons Imaginary Friend or Ghost?

Posted on August 10, 2009

I am a 31 year old mother of three.  In 1999 I had my first son. When my son was about 2 and a half years old we moved to Mesquite, Texas, to live in an apartment because my husband’s job was there. Our permanent address was in San Juan, Texas.

After a while of living in the second floor apartment, my son started to play and talk to an imaginary friend. He called his friend Culises. We did not think too much about it because we thought it was normal, being he was an only child. After some time our son began to include his friend in all of our activities.

When we would travel back home my son would take his friend with us and did not want us to place anything on the spot that Culises was sitting at. He would take him to the store and everywhere we went Culises would go.

One day my son started calling me with fear in his voice and he told me that Culises had fallen from the balcony. I was surprised and began to think that maybe his friend was not so imaginary, but actually a boy that had lived in the apartment before us and had passed away.

Then one early morning, I was in the kitchen preparing breakfast and lunch for my husband to take to work, when I saw the top of a boy’s head with straight blond hair walking on the other side of the kitchen island. I walked to the side of the island and got on my knees waiting for my son to come to me and hug me. My son never came, I checked the bedroom and my son was asleep. I later realized that my son was too short to be able to see him over the island and that his hair was not that blond.

If you asked my son where his friend was he would run and look around for him and call his name until he found him, and then he would bring him to you and say here he is. My husband also felt someone touching his head. We then realized that Culises was not imaginary, but a boy that my son was actually playing with, talking to, and seeing.

The good thing about this is that Culises never hurt my son or us. The scary thing was that he was not only at the apartment, but would go with us wherever my son went. After we moved back home, Culises came home with us for a while and then just disappeared.

    children don’t have the hang ups that adults do and are very attuned to spirits. good for him to have connected with a child spirit!!! do your other children have similar imaginary friends. if they do, i hope there good experiences!! thank you for a great story!!!

    Your chhild is psychic. He is a seer, the spirit dosen’t have to do the work. I hope everythings great at home now.

    YIKES! My oldest son had am imaginary friend when he was about 3, we had moved back into my mom’s house (the house of wierd, where you always felt watched and strange little things happened);

    Anytime mischief happened, my son always said it was Peter who did it, finally I got up the nerve to ask who Peter was….my 3 year old, who did not have cable TV, said Peter is a junkie…..I said where did you meet him? My son said New York City (we lived in the midwest, and had never set foot in New York at that time).

    My son proceeded to tell me a story about how Peter was a junkie that mugged him, and he Peter and my son’s wife all worked together and ended up being friends…..my 3 year old also went into detail about his wife, and how beautiful she was on their wedding day…..I am a firm believer in reincarnation…..as for Peter? Faded with time…I hope.

  12. KNOWTOMUCH says:

    Eileen,, wow,,for a 3 year old to come up with something like that is something!!! how old is he now, and has he had any more experiences??? i would also like to hear about your mom’s house…. as, i grew up, in , basically a haunted house….

    take care,, ktm

  13. LMC says:

    two good stories Elizabeth wow how is your son now does he have another imaginary friend? kids are so in touch with the spirits I think it’s thier innocents in life???

    Eileen sounds like your son was remembering a past life and his friend followed him. I am glad his friend left he might of been reborn if you believe in reincarnation???

    lots of love to you and your family both Elizabeth and Eileen!

    When adults believe in their own 3 year old’s imaginary friends we have a bit of a problem on our hands…
