my neice is 10 yrs old,bright , popular and active. she has told of things for yrs now,including describibg her maternal grandma,who died before she was born. she has her grandma,s middle name as her middle name.she desrcribed grans cup of tea,no sugar and rich tea biscuits,and was found making one in the night once,cos the lady keeps asking me for it,she said,it wasnt something that was spoken of,not a thing you remember above other things anyway!she says someone is in her room often, and climbs into her parents bed,however ,the last few months have become quite alarming to her mom.she cries out in the night,wakes and tells her mom about people of another era. the last time i saw her,we spoke of her nightmares and how they troubled her. her mom asked me hat i thought,as i go to spiritualist church and beleive in such but she is a sceptic,the latest phase leaves the child sobbing and afraid.she talks of a child called anna,who she is a little afraid of. anna says she should be with her,anna died at 10 yrs old,steffi,has just turned10.she speaks of being made to work, and of a girl having her hair caught in some kind of roller,it reminds me of the workhouses of victorian england.the girl had her scalp ripped off by the rolers, and could no longer work, so was sent elsewhere. steffi goes into the main church when in town,always sits in the 7th row back. just sits,holding the rail, quietly and says anna went there,.in victorian times a child would not be buried in the church.she talks of a place she went to that was clean .she was cared for,it seems by nuns.when i ask her to write it all down she says anna wont let her.she seems afraid of anna,as if anna told her what to do.she can be heard speaking to someone in daytime too.her mom is t her wits end .need to find out what is troubling stefi.it makes the child upset and tearful and she has been sat late at night reeling off things that she would not know. bonnets,high boots if you were lucky,boys being sent up chimneys and fire lit in the hearth to make them climb faster. if their feet were burned they were cast onto the street as unable to work.similar to the first barnardos cases,many things she says.we are unsure if we should take her to the spiritualist church for fear of her thinking someone is speaking to her and frightening her,.could anyone offer advice please?
