Yes she knows !
I explained it in such a gentle , delicate manner to her THAT it is a "spirit" that Not everyone "see's" them But I know with practice She Will be able too in time. I didn't feel it necessary to call it a vessel -the statues, rather called it "their home" but yet still very delicately said, her new friends will always be with her and follow her to her house, school, etc. I had asked CH to bind them to her (: My daughter was aware of that So I thought it would be ok.
As not to make such a huge thing of a full description of everything I'm trying to help nature, I kinda gave a gentle basics since she's only 5. I'd rather not with her going to school and all, have some other child saying Spirits aren't real. I explained it's kinda like having a Special Secret that only a few know like her Nanny , her Mommy and her Aunt and Uncle So-in So's. That they are REAL and her Nanny's see's them.
Everyday she will sit with me and I will help her connect to her bonding of new friends -No mouth speaking...LOL
