The Shower


About ten years ago, when I was 15, I moved to up north Michigan to live with my father. He lived on the upper floor of a cute home that had been converted into two apartments. While we all encountered many unexplainable experiences there, the one I am about to tell has always stood out to me the most.

My dad used to work the evening shift so I was always home by myself until about 10:15pm. While I was usually quite the social butterfly, I decided to stay home and relax. To me, the best way to start relaxing has always been to take a nice hot shower.

I went into the bathroom and closed the door, making sure it was locked. I then removed my clothing. As I was reaching in to turn on the shower, I distinctly felt a large, warm, and gentle hand caress my back. I immediately jerked up and turned around to find no one there. Needless to say, my nice relaxing night was over. I decided to forgo the shower so as not to give the "spirit" any more of a peep show and I quickly got dressed and sat on the couch waiting for my dad to get home.

As I was sitting there, I heard the downstairs door open, and saw the door to the apartment rattle. (The top door always rattled when the bottom opened.) I then heard someone stomp about half way up the stairs and stop. Thinking that it was my dad trying to scare me, I went and opened the door. No one was there, and nobody had gone back down the stairs. By this time I was pretty freaked out. I ran back inside, sat on the couch and blasted the TV. Fortunately, nothing else happened that night but it was scary none the less.

Thank you all for your comments. It was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. I'm sure that whatever it was stomped up those stairs purposely to scare me. To be honest, I'm glad that was the only thing that happened. I'm a pretty big chicken so scaring me doesn't take much.

It is common for a spirit who does not want to "move on", "return to heaven", etc, to remain on Earth as a ghost. It might haunt (live) in it's own home, watch over loved ones, remain where it died, or will find a big empty home where it can live alone in peace. But on occasion it might find someone it wishes to annoy.

A male ghost might take advantage of his situation to stalk women. Treat him as you would any peeping tom or stalker. Tell him what he is doing is wrong, that he is not welcome, must leave now, and add that he is DEAD.

If it gets out of hand then contact a church, Paranormal Research Society, Medium, or Ghostbuster or Ghosthunter.

Check their references and credentials so you do not get conned. A good one will not charge a penny.

Well, from all my experiences, I have had nothing like this happen! 😲 I mean, I've felt things touch me from a soft pat to sexual intimidation, but never a caress on the back. I'm not so sure as to why... 😕 Anyway, from your point of view, this is most definitely a spirit. It seems like it just wants attention, and maybe when you didn't get in the shower, it wanted to intimidate you. That's just my thought, though it could possibly be something other.

It sounds like who, or what ever touched you wanted to make sure you knew that it was still around. I don't know why it would stomp like that though unless it was to intimidate you. That doesn't sound very casper-ish to me. Plus casper wasn't handsy.

Wow, what a perverted ghost. At least it didn't grope you or something. 😕

But what if it was a little child ghost! 😲
