    And I've never known anyone who did. Until then, I consider the idea to be fiction.
    No offence intended.

    No. I told my mother it was the other bella when I was naughty and said she should discipline her. She laughed and we had a long conversation about naughty bella.

    My sister had one, she called gmp-gmp. She would blame things on gmp-gmp. One time she told Mommy that gmp-gmp did it, and Mommy had had enough, so she told her that gmp-gmp wasn't welcome anymore, and my sister had to tell her so. That was the end of it.

    Oh boy... Right now, I have the chills running down my spine, because this thread title brought back a flood of memories from my early childhood.

    I remember, vividly, after coming to Jesus at age 5, without my parents even knowing, I'd become aware of this presence in my mind, that would comfort, teach and console me. We'd have these long conversations, regarding obedience to my parents, honesty, compassion and a whole lot of stuff, which looking back, lines up perfectly with Biblical truth - even practical teaching on how to chase away demons. He always treated me with such warmth and love, unlike any person I have ever known. Somehow, all this has been buried for so long. Until now. This was a spiritual entity. And not just any spiritual entity, but indeed the Holy Spirit. There's no way that my imagination could have come up with such pure Biblical truth all by myself, especially never having seen a Bible until much later. I always used to have a very accurate sense of what to share with my parents and what not to. I used to be able to predict precisely how people would respond to anything I was about to say, and that guided me through into my teens, when it stopped somehow. Probably when my parents rebuked me for having this invisible friend. He was my dearest friend of all. Looking back, my parents would have wrecked my faith completely if I was to tell them of all these encounters - rest their souls. What an awesome God we serve...

    His name was Bing Bong. Together we made a rocket out of a toy wagon and two brooms. It ran on song-power. (with apologies to Pete Docter.)
