I am really disturbed writing about what occurred
in September 1991. Admitedly, flat our Frightened - not by what occurred,
but the feeling that I did take it as seriously - no
Monumental 'Born Again' actions immediately
following the occurance.
I am a Christian.. raised Methodist - but never
really followed the church going path.
This is what is truely amazing... I have read
some of these stories..and what?..
The stories surround feelings & natural
occurrences that appear to answer ones prays. Do not get me wrong - believe
these are miracles, but I expected the stories to be a little more concrete
"I came home from work & Jesus was sitting
on my sofa watching Wheel Of Fortune on cable..."
This story.. at the time of this writing...
I believe .. Trust me here... defies the Laws of Physic's - flat out. This
was not a one time deal, it repeated itself close to 7-8 times.
I witnessed over and over.... also shown to
two other individuals - who immediately dismissed as some sort of 'Trick'
on my part.
Going to lay the ground-work... this is very
important - you see when this occurred - I looked at EVERY ANGLE for an
My profession - Network Engineer... means very
OK here goes:
I was sharing a two bedroom townhouse with
the owner - she had been on vacation with boyfriend - (US Open Tennis)
- gone over 5-6 Days already.
The day in question was a Sunday - I worked
graveyard shift at a Data Center. Had to be at work at midnight.
My accommodations in the townhouse provided
its own bathroom - shower & Large full length mirror two sinks etc.
The bathtub / Shower - had one of the round
single-style central faucet - Pull out to turn on water - rotate right
or left to adjust hot & cold water.
I worked Sunday - Thursday...
Back up to last Tuesday - about a day AFTER
my roommate left town.
The knob of the faucet - Broke - could not
adjust water temperature...just could turn on the water by pulling it out..
but rotating.. it just spun...like it was stripped.
The problem was it was on full-blown HOT....that
was it. could not adjust the water temperature of the shower - only the
option - Hot..Damn Hot!
Now that Tuesday.. ended up bathing in the
kitchen sink - ( never considered using her bathroom - this was a straight
roommate situation - this is why I chose to wait before attempting any
repairs - it was her townhouse..)
Now for Wednesday night - & everyday there
after until Sunday...I devised an ingenious plan.
I turned the gas Hot water heater OFF
- left it off.
Then when ready to shower - turned it on...
turned on the shower.. waited until it started to warm up...took a quick
two minute shower.. wahlah...!..Worked like a charm...
until Sunday night.
So its Sunday night..10:30pm or so..
about an hour before I would leave for work - woke early from the power
nap before work.
Time to start getting ready for work - ready
to take a shower - Went to turn ON the Hot water heater - and it was already
ON - this was kind of creepy because fairly certain I had turned it off
after using the shower the day before.
So now I have to turn off the Hot water heater
- & drain it out in order to take a shower.
So turned it off... turned on the shower -
Full Bore...Running out the Hot water.. knew this going to take some time
- because I had to do the same thing the night following when the faucet
originally broke (Tuesday) - (before I got the idea to leave the Hot water
10-15 minutes it starts running out.. jump
in quick shower & out.
The steam created by running the Hot water
heater dry... was Very thick, hung heavy in the air. Bathroom door was
open... the air began to clear.. that's when I noticed it.
On the mirror - it definitely had structure...
this a very large mirror - fixed directly to the wall (adhesive stuck the
mirror flat to the wall - which was a solid concrete load bearing
On the mirror, the steam began to dissipate...
yet there was something visible, appeared structured in the steam - resembled...
#### #### ###
You see.. the moisture molecules in the air
generated from the shower adhere to the glass of the mirror.
When I first exited the shower.. the entire
mirror - end-to-end - was blanketed with steam.
As the air cleared - the steam on the mirror
also cleared... Entirely.... except the splotches of steam held firm.
Now I am standing there..thinking.. what fool
wrote on the mirror?... but it was not legible... I was really
perplexed - then remembered - NO ONE had been in the house but myself -
No ONE - and these splotches WERE NOT there when I had to run out the hot
water heater last Tuesday.
Standing there in a towel - staring directly
at these splotches - got my nose right up on mirror...
This was REALLY strange - you see, the whole
bathroom & mirror was steam free.. completely - yet the steam splotches
Could not detect any substance on the mirror
- this was the opposite of writing with your finger on a steamy mirror.
These were large splotches of steam - stuck
on the mirror.
I am Staring directly at it..eyes an inch
from the mirror... when I noticed the splotches began to change..
The steam on each splotch - began to evaporate
- symmetrically from the outside, gradually moving toward the middle. Think
of a circle that gradually shrinks - (its radius decreasing while the center
Staring straight at this... the shrinking splotches
began to resemble...letters.
I first noticed the S -....it rapidly became
very clear - this was a message.
I literally jumped back - my towel dropped
to floor, standing butt-ass naked - this was unbelievable The splotches
had evaporated to form letters. The letters formed a message that was perfectly
SEEK YOUR GOD
I was totally stunned... I wish I could say
I dropped to my knees in prayer. ( why this frightens me today..others
have had a Leap of Faith on much less evidence.. I was adamant -
This was some kind of joke..
How the hell (excuse the pun) did this unknown
jokester pull this off?
Took a paper & pen & recorded the exact
script of the lettering.. it was not bold like this type face - but kind
of cloudy like... but unmistaken the statement was perfectly clear.
NO ONE had been in the house... my roommate
was not religious in anyway.
This mirrored had been fully steamed days
before and nothing. After at least a few minutes... The letters slowly
began to evaporate - from the outside until it was gone.
The mirror had ABSOLUTELY nothing on it that
could be detected.
Immediately began to run this through my brain..
ok someone HAD to get in here.. so lets say they did. What did they put
on the mirror that would cause the glass to maintain the conductivity which
would cause the water molecules to fixed for extended periods & NOT
evaporate as the room & the surface cooled?
Remember - many products can be placed on the
mirror to prevent steam adhering to it - creating the message IN the steam.
This case - the letters WERE the steam.
At this point... decided going to be late to
work.... fire the water heater back up... heat the water....turn on the
shower full bore - close the door - completely steam up the mirror....
there it is.. again!
OK.. lets do it a third time - Again the message
After a couple more times.. definitely noticed
the message was getting 'weaker' - not lasting as long before dissipating.
Went to work... the next day called two people
- one a close friend - the other my recent ex-girlfriend. They both
came over - steam job was repeated - & appeared. Their response
was less than expected.
My friend called me an asshole & stated
this was not a funny joke & stormed out.
The Ex - about the same response - accused
me of playing a parlor trick in order to get back together with her.
After this last time... the message never returned.
My Ex called weeks later with THE explanation
- courtesy of her 'new' boyfriend - who apparently had an answer for everything
- Hairspray. I had used Hairspray to create the message. I told the dingbat
- this had already been checked it out - it PREVENTS the steam from adhering
to the mirror - thereby creating a message written IN the steam.
See if it was one of my close friends pulling
a prank - they certainly would not have written a message like this.
Now if it read - "YOU WILL BE DEAD IN 7 DAYS"
- then yes..a prank from one of my friends.
Since then... EVERYONE... I have ever told..
take a really lousy attitude .. even my family. Peoples reaction from my
story was always disturbing to me... they were almost in disgust. for they
do not believe me or could not fathom God would address a numb nut like
me & not show them 'a sign'?
So I stopped talking about it.
So here I am... this was no joke...
