Experience description:  

Soon after my mother passed away in Sept. 08 I began seeing this small ball of light out of the corner of my eye. it seemed to be happening more often when she first passed (as in several times a day) and now it only happens once or twice a day. I mostly see the light in the evening. and most frequently in my staircase where I have a large picture of her hanging. when it first began to occur I called my aunt (my mother's sister) and told her of the strange happening. she told me that she too has been witnessing this light. she was practically finishing my sentences for me while I was describing the occurrences to her, indicating that she knew exactly what I was talking about. she went on to explain that she had at first felt that there was something wrong with her eyes and had actually scheduled an appointment with her eye doctor. after speaking with me we both concluded that it had to be my mother possibly trying to communicate with us or send some type of message. I also noticed that the light often appears when im around certain people, for example, right when they come to my front door or soon after coming into the house. my boyfriend (of nearly two years) and I, broke up soon after my mothers death. I became involved  (romantically) with a close guy friend a month or so later. every time he was at my house, I would see the light come and go. he later turned out to be a jerk and started threatening my life after we had a bad argument. since then, the guy that I was with beforehand and I have decided to try to work things out. I often see the light when he's at my house as well. my mother knew him and thought he was a good guy. so I guess im trying to determine if this ball of light is her presence, whether or not she's just trying to let me know that she is here, and also when she appears when im around certain people, if she is trying to warn me about that person or encourage me. I would also like to state that since my mother passed I have had four dreams that in a way predicted something that was going to happen or a way that I was going to feel, one to three days beforehand. I feel that she is sending me messages as to try to warn me or prepare me for things that are to come. I say that this is directly related to my mother because I've never had dreams like this before.

I also dreamt another time that my wheels were stolen off of my car. a few days later (reality) I damaged both of my back tires and had to get a whole new set of rims for my car. in the dream I was very upset. afterwards I felt that the dream was a warning that I was about to loose my current wheels and would have to get new ones.
