The Letter H On The Wall


My husband and I recently bought a new home and have since moved out of our first home and have found renters. We've spent the last two to three weeks fixing up our rental, painting, dry walling, installing new blinds, and ceiling fans. This past Sunday, we had patched up a hole in the wall that was made by removing an old security system panel. The hole was located in our old room. The patch work was dried when we left the home.

My husband returned Tuesday morning to finish painting. He called me and asked me to come over during my lunch break because he wanted to "show me something". When I arrived he told me to go into our old room and tell him what I thought. When I went into the room I noticed a perfectly scrapped capital 'H' etched on the wall where the dried up patchwork had been done two days ago. I immediately asked him who had been in our home when we were gone. He told me that all windows were locked and all doors had been locked and dead bolted. Additionally, the alarm system had been armed and when he entered it did not notify him that it had been set off. No one had been in our home.

We lived in the home for 6 years and the only "paranormal" experience we had was when we both saw a grayish mirage type image float across the floor. We were both sitting on the couch and moved our heads at the same time to look at something. We then both described the same thing.

I am just wondering what the "H" could mean. And why the spirit would write it on the wall?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would try and find the past owners and contact numbers to ask them any questions about it.

Check the basement or any other place you'd hide a body...

Help would be a very common one, strange only one letter though.

The "H" could mean "hell" or "help." Maybe it's the spirit's first letter of it's name.

Personally I would do some research on the property, Find out who lived there, what was there before it was built, and if possible if anyone else who has lived there has experianced anything unusual. Let me know how it goes.

Well not to sound like a broken record, but you could research the rental. Is a converted home? Free standing? Complex?

That would take some work on your part... Finding out who lived there... What once was there. But it sounds like you have your hands full with moving and settling into a new home.

I guess take comfort you're not living there anymore and just patch over the H
