This happened in 2016, Pondicherry and Pune. My batchmate, P, went to Pondicherry to play football on behalf of our college. In the trip, he and 7 other people went to Paradise Beach. That was the day of high tide. Despite fishermen's warning, P and 2 other batchmates went into the beach. All of a sudden, there was a high tide. The other two made it, but P couldn't make it. His body was later found near a harbour.
Few days after his death, I had a dream in which I was talking to him in our hostel. I asked him the reason for visiting me, to which he told that he wanted to meet me. I wasn't afraid, because he looked peaceful to me. I don't know when the dream ended because I had it around six in the morning.
There are two possibilities:
1. I really had a dream
2. I met his soul with my astral body
Dream - It could be a dream because from the time we heard about his disappearance, our whole batch was worrying about him. We couldn't digest the fact he had disappeared. For the next two days, my mood had many ups and downs. All we ever wanted was seeing him alive, which we knew was impossible.
Astral projection - I wouldn't say it to be true until I saw it happen to me once in 2017. I had a dream regarding my future in my career. Now, I say that it could be a possibility. I somehow know how to differentiate between the usual dreaming and dreams which are connected to my life.
I still have a doubt, of all our batchmates why did he choose me, even though I wasn't in his group of friends?
Hope you like it.
