The Warm Spirit
I wanted to share something that happened to me back a few years ago during the winter. It was one of my first nights in my dorm room at the University of Fairbanks, Alaska. I was informed that the frigid winds from the arctic north were even worse than usual, and the frigid arctic winds were blowing right against my dorm wall, so this night had indeed been very cold at -62 Fahrenheit (-53 degrees Celsius).
The room was freezing cold, I cranked up the heat but even at the maximum setting it did not seem to heat up the room The outer wall swapped the warm heat with its frigid grip of unwelcoming coldness.
As I huddled up under all the blankets, I finally dozed off into a slumber, only to wake up again about one hour later even more frozen than before. I turned over and again manged to doze off into my cold slumber.
Next, I do not know if I was dreaming or awake. I noticed someone walking over to the my bed. This someone crawled into the bed and normally, I would have rose up and gotten out of bed to see who it was and why this person was in my bed. For some unknown reason, I didn't do that. The heat of whoever's body warmed me up. and, allowed me to sleep.I snoozed into a comfortable sleep. When I woke up I was fully rested still feeling warm and cozy. While the room itself was totally frigid with arctic coldness.
I got dressed and decided to tell one of my mates about the event. He informed me there had been the exact same thing happen to others in that very dorm room on several other occasions. They described the same event just as it happened that I just experienced. It seemed to happen on very cold nights, this friendly spirit would cuddel up with you and keep you warm while sleeping. I later learned that back some years ago, a girl in that very room froze to death. She apparently went to turn the heater up but turned it off by mistake, right before she fell asleep. I am told that her spirit comes on extra cold nights, and keeps whoever is in that room, warm and safe overnight.
