A Haunting Bath


The story takes place in the Northern Rockies of Western Montana. The house I lived in was a 1880s western Victorian that one housed miners for the Anaconda company. The day I walked into this house, the first time I could feel a warm embrace that I had not felt before or since. So on that day I made the offer and it was accepted.

The house would give me glimpses of a hidden world from time to time. The first few were haunting violin music from an empty upstairs room very late at night. There were also many nights I would see things, shapes, shadows and a mist of sorts. Though the true contact of this entity happened on a brisk autumn eve after returning home from a long day at work. I had no shower in this old home so I bathed in a period claw foot tub. I ran the tub like any other time, hopped in and lathered up. The water was a bit to warm for my liking so with soap all over me and my eyes shut I reached for the cold water side and turned it, to my surprise I had turned the hot water on full blast, feverishly trying to get the soap out of my eyes to remedy the water situation. I opened one eye in time to watch the hot water turn off with out any help from me.

I remember every experience that home had to show me with a fondness and hope that one day I would return and thank it for opening my already very open eyes.

RevCunnynghame, first I want to say the claw foot tub sounds heavenly! Your spirit sounds sort of protective and that can only be a good thing. I'm glad you had such a good experience and enjoyed it at the time. You sound open to a world where not everything is as we think it should be, and I personally think that is a great thing. I have experienced some things that aren't what people consider 'normal' ghostly activities, scary or evil I mean, and I'm always happy to hear from someone who has a similar enjoyable experience as I have. It goes to show that not every other-worldly happening has to be some horrifying ordeal or scare the living pants off of you.

Dear RevCunnynghame,

I relate to your story. :) Majority of homes or places are not haunted by negative ghosts or visiting spirits. They are just average everyday people who have died, and are presently re-living their daily lives within their familiar residences and environments.--Abby

Wow a house haunted by a benevolent entity, that's always a refreshing take on the whole subject. Thanks RevCunnynghame.
