Ghosts: A Pleasant Ghost

Have you ever lived with a ghost?  What was it like? Was it pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral?  How did you sense it:  see, hear, feel, mental impression, dream?  Was it long or short term?  Did it follow you when you moved?  Has anyone in your family experienced a ghost?  

I’ll share about a quite pleasant ghost in a home in which I lived decades ago.  The house was in Sacramento, CA, a ‘fifties contemporary (“midcentury modern”) by a noted local architect.  Although it was not a large home or in a fancy neighbourhood, I loved the architecture and the feel of the place. Everyone who came over, in fact, remarked how “welcoming” it felt.  We (my ex and I) purchased the home for a relative song because it was in probate and because it had not been redone since the ’60’s: rust coloured shag carpeting (but over oak floors), ‘big daisy’ wallpaper, avocado green appliances, etc. The yard was lovely. We were sold!

We both noticed after moving in that it felt as if someone else was there. In the nicest most unobtrusive way. We felt welcome and wanted.  Our dogs liked it, too.  A few friends noticed this sense of someone else being present, too – it wasn’t just us.

Sometimes when you rehab homes, it brings out the worst in ghosts. Not here: we opened up the main house to the sunporch, finished it and made it a lounge and a dining area looking out into the garden, we painted, removed wallpaper, got rid of carpeting and refinished the floors, redid the bathrooms.  No problem!

Sometimes things were moved around a bit by some unearthly agency, but the main way this ghost made itself known was by good energy.  Would they were all so! I have other horrible haunt stories but I wanted you to know that genial ghosts do exist.
