Experience description:  

I  was in my bed, in my  bedroom when this happened. I was extremely sad and to relax my mind I was watching TV. Dad was in the kitchen. suddenly I saw a  flash of light through the corner of my eyes. When I turned my head towards it, a shawl (woolen garment worn by Indian ladies) that was hanging on a chair was moving by itself (all the  doors and windows were closed at  that time).

A day after my mom's demise in a dream I saw my mom on the other side of barbed wires laying on the ground unconscious, surrounded by several people. I was crying badly as I was not able to cross the barbed wires. I was shouting 'mom mom!' but there was no reaction but after 2-3 minutes, she suddenly opened her eyes and came running towards me and I was also in some other world. Then suddenly my father woke me up and the dream was over.
