Experience description:  

That day I was feeling very frustrated and very lonely and sad, because that day it would be normally her birthday. I ask to leave earlier from my job because I wanted  to be alone. When the night came (around 23.30), I put my little son to bed on the top floor (my house has two floors) and then I went downstairs to the kitchen to take my cigarettes and smoke in my private room. My husband was on a business trip and I had the time to be by my shelf and think.

Ever since my mother's death, I light a small candle which I put it in a small glass inside a small plate. This candle is in the kitchen. When I got down to take my cigars, I stared at the candle like "it was the soul of my mother" and started to cry. Then suddenly, the flame of the candle started to sparkle, and then a white-blue light (like a line) came towards me and RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES I saw it growing bigger in the shape of a television and then I heard I silent "boom" and it was disappeared.
