Priyanka R's Experience

Experience description:   

I clearly remember that I was lying on my bed with mu husband lying beside me. We both were awake and reading books. After a while I stopped reading and was staring at the ceiling. Suddenly my body felt heavy and couldn't move or talk. I tried to move myself desperately and tried to reach for my husband. I thought I was going through a Heart attack or something. But then I suddenly found myself climbing down the stairs reaching for the main door as someone was knocking on it. I also saw my living Mother-in-Law reaching for the same door to open it for the person outside. I asked to wait and I would open the door for her. But she reached to door before me and opened it. As soon as she opened it a bright light came from outside and I could see everything going on reverse action. My mother got back to her room and I came upstairs to my room and suddenly I could move my body. I immediately reached for the Upanayana wore by my husband and he looked towards me. I asked him to go downstairs immediately to check on my mother-in-law. We went downstairs and she was fine. I asked if she got out of bed. She said no. We came upstairs and got on bed. I narrated the whole thing to my husband. He believed me and asked me to go to sleep.
