do you think babies can see angels

someone once told me a baby can see a passed on loved on or angels,. I am a huge believer in life after death, and there are times my 3 month old stares at the ceiling, follows "something" with her eyes and has a huge smile on her face, this does not happen all the time and their is no specific times, just wanted to know what others thought.

The Bible says that children's guardian angels always see the face of God. I think God holds a special place in His heart for children. They're the only ones innocent in this life. So yes, I believe they can see angels. Why not?

My daughter kept hearing her little girl talking to someone when she would be playing alone, having a full conversation. She asked her who was she talking to. She said the angel, don't you see her? She did that for quite a while when she was young. So, I must say, yes, I believe they see angels.

Yes, I believe children can see angels. My son asked who and what something was outside his room in the hospital. My aunt and I went and looked and saw nothing. Less than 15 minutes later he slipped into a coma. Prior to the coma, he said that's alright and smiled. His face showed no more signs of pain. After his death we were talking and my aunt and I said it was at that time he was visited by his angel for the last time. The almost same thing happened when my 7 y/o was hit by car at 2 1/2. He said he stayed with Jesus for a while. We tried to discourage him but his descriptions were so real. When he described and talked about seeing his brother too. When asked about his hair, he looked funny and said he wasn't bald he had pretty curly hair. He still talks about thattoday and I still get chills. For you see, when we adopted David we wrote in his baby book in assition to 2 brothers here, he had 1 in heaven that would always watch over him. When the car hit him, my aunt said he went up and it was like he floated down very slow. A Miracle. YES!.

I hear all the time about children seeing Jesus or angels, especially when they're sick or dying. Does anyone remember Ryan White? He's the little boy who was one of the first (or maybe the first, I don't remember) to get AIDS from a blood transfusion. He was shunned at his school, etc., because people just didn't know as much about AIDS back then. His mother had to fight a lot for him. Anyway, she wrote about how when he was in the hospital and not doing too well that he told her he had a vivid dream where Jesus came to visit him. She asked what he looked like and he told her that he didn't look like the pictures we have of him. Anyway, he told her that Jesus told him that everything would be alright. Ryan's mom took that to mean that Ryan would be healed. Shortly after that he died. It was then that she realized that Jesus did heal him but not the way she expected. She believed that Jesus visited him to reassure and comfort him.
I've heard so many true stories like this one. Children are innocent, so yes, I believe they are more attuned to the spirit world, God and the angels.

Yes, I believe they do.  I believe that they smile a lot because they can still feel and see God and his angels.  They are so pure and innocent!

Yes, I do believe they can.   If you PM me I will share our story.

I agree that animals see spirits too.   My one cat, Daisy, is deaf, but every now and then she will see something and just stare in that direction.  There are times it scares her, but usually she comes right back and watches that exact spot.  I always feel like she is seeing angels or even my cats that died.  Babies, children and animals are so pure and full of faith!

Yes!! I lost my 7 wk old son this summer, due to a heart condition. My little nephew (almost 3y/o) is always looking up and talking to or talking about my son Cooper.  This brings me so much comfort in knowing that Cooper is in Heaven watching over all of us!!!

My mom said I did the same thing after her sister passed away. I have always felt a close connection to Angels and now I really do being that I have my very own little Angel looking after me!!

I believe babies and toddlers have a connection, we can only hope for one day. We can read in the Bible about their guardian angels, I believe the connection is even stronger. Babies have no words to reach out, but they know in there hearts of an innocent love that once existed in the garden, with Adam and Eve.  I hope they can see angels, then they are getting a small glimpse of heaven.

i believe babies can see angels bc when my son was old enough to babble he would always talk to the pictures of my grandmother whom he has never met. he would talk to her before bed time, he would reach up to the ceiling. he quit for a while. but then last night he kept saying he saw an angel. i asked him what was the angel doing.  he said she was washing her hair. well i asked him what did his angel looked like and he pointed to a picture of my grandmother. my eyes filled up with tears of joy.

Yes I do think angels are seen by babies, animals, and people experience them too.
362249 tn?1441315018
I think so! One of my lil cousins well her daddy had a baby that passed away (in his prior relationship to meeting my cousin) from SIDs and when my cousin was a baby her grandma used to say her brother was gonna visit her well one day she was just staring off into space and laughing and laughing and there was nothing there!

I see them and I'm not a baby anymore. I've always seen them.

Really? How cool is that! I'd love to hear your stories sometime, Mike. :)
219241 tn?1413537765
Like Mike I too, have experiences all the time! My daughter when she was little could see and talk to 'angels' or what ever you want to call them. It is a subject that has fascinated me  for years and one I am about to write a book about.

Mike Id like to hear your stories too. I have had some experiences with a presence in the room. I was in my grandmas abandoned trailer storing my stuff there while in the moving process. My mom would take my sisters stuff from the living room down to the bedroom. Since its long and narrow, we timed it so that I was in the bedroom while my mom in the living room and we would go around each other in the kitchen. (by my grandmas ashes strangely enough, and my grandfathers and great grandfathers too) While Iw as in the bedroom, the door would close but not tight because its on a slope. One time that I was in the bedroom I went to pull the door back open and I felt a tugging. I thought my mom was bugging me but she shoudl have been in the living room. After a couple pulls and having it pull back, I reefed it open hard and no one was there, my mom was back in the living room.

At another trip to grandmas house in the same week, my husband and I were carrying a bed piece over there. It was big and flat and hard to maneuver. Hubby went in the house while I was out side of it. The house is raised about a meter so I was lower. We were having trouble fitting it in so I stopped touching it all together while honey figured it out. While he was fiddling with it, he screamed for me to stop pushing it. I wasnt even close to touching it! (apparently grandma didnt want me to move 4500km away.

A friend of mine told me about how she lived in a house that the owner had died in and she could hear scratching noises. She yelled Bonnie, stop Im trying to sleep! And the scratching stopped. She also lived in the house next door which was also old. He son woudl often play ball with a little "boy". One night he ran out of his room and asked, mom the boy went in to Ceilidh's room and he took my ball. He also would complain about a tall dark man who was always in his room. One night the tall dark man was bugging him so his mom crawled in bed with him till he went to sleep. She too fell asleep and woke to a tap on the shoulder. She thought it was her husband. It wasnt. She fell back asleep and hear a voice wake her up this time saying, " its time for you to leave, NOW" She got freaked out and grabbed her son and took him to bed with her and her husband.

I dont think they really qualify as angel stories but spirits maybe.

I can say with certainy that people of all ages can see angels and other spirits. When my son was a toddler he woke up from a nap while i was praying. I heard him sit up in his bed, but i didn't stop. I stayed on my bed and continued usally this overacted boy would have jumped off the bed. He didn't move when I finished I looked over at him. He was sitting there wide eyed staring and he said to me...mommy you have angels all around you. as far as i know that was his only time seeing anything like that. i on the other hand have been seeing them and other things since i was a small child, but since this is about angels i'll stick to that. a few years later i had put him to bed"at this time we were temporaily staying in a hotel" he had school the next day. i was watching ice skating on t.v. and  my attention was drawn to the end of his bed. there was an angel sitting there and i was told to pray Ps.91 0ver him and tell him the next morning not to run to the bus, because a cab would be coming around the building. There were several kids that caught that bus and they always ran a race everymoring.well he didn't run because he was experienced with me by then, and yes there was a cab that came aruond the building. the other kids slammed into the side of it all i can figure was that my son woud have been out front and would have been hit,and though the driver wasn't speeding that still would not have been good.
um i'm sorry this was so long, but i hope it helps with whoever wants to know.

Most babies can see angels as can animals and they believe children loose that ability when life gets a hold of them and they become busy with other things, we have a child in our life that is sick and he stares at things soemtimes when i hold him but he is calm and i know they are there helping him.

I believe my 2 month old can see angels...and i want to believe that she can see my mother. I lost my mom back in 2006 of a stroke (at age 56). I got very emotional when I had my baby, because my mom wasn't here to enjoy it with me an to know my daughter. The more I think about it though...the more I believe that God knowing this, sent my mother as my daughter's Guardian Angel and that my daughter sees her all the time. She stares up and her eyes move around and she smiles. She actually smiles more in her sleep and at "nothing" than she smiles at me or my husband. So, yes, I believe they see angels...and I'm sure Jesus also.
