So, my house is very old, at least 100 years. We know for a fact that at least two people died in the bedrooms. A woman died in my husband and I’s room and her husband died in my mother-in-laws room. They never seem to be malevolent, but we have seen their figures and they each have a certain smell that follows them. We even took the cabinet doors off in our kitchen because they opened and closed all night. We haven’t had any sign from the woman in a long time so we think she has moved on, but the man is still here because we have seen him at the edge of our bed.
But over the last few days, I have been smelling a foul smell, but nobody else smelled it until yesterday. It smells like death or sewer. It comes and goes and moves through out the house. I am worried about it because it isn’t either of the two spirits we know reside.
In our house and the smell makes me think it might not be anything good, but nothing has happened yet, other than the normal knocks in the night.
Should I try speaking to it? I’m not sure what to do and I want it to know that we don’t have anything for it and that it should move on.
