Wanderers among us - Sound off

Greetings to all.

I am not going to fully explain what I mean by the term "Wanderer". It will resonate if it applies to you.

Here's my story -

Until recently, I have been sleeping the sound, restful sleep of the ignorant.

Sure, as a child there was some strange stuff like -

Feeling disconnected from the world and even at times from my own life, as if I was reading a comic book about a character that just happened to be me

Words in common usage like "the" sounding foreign and weird.

Feeling that I must have been adopted

Looking at printed words on the page and, although able to read far better than my peers at a young age, thinking that the strange markings on the paper were somehow alien, like a fake, made up language

Lucid dreams of flying

As an adult, I have felt a distinct lack of compassion for humanity as a whole. I have seen the injustices, the wars, the greed and the vandalism of the biosphere and found it hard to empathise with a race who's sole purpose (when not forced to concentrate on simply surviving) is to gather and hoard power, resources and wealth.

Although I have no use for the "systems" and "processes" through which you allow yourselves to be controlled and ruled, I have compassion for individuals and a strong sense of justice and civic duty to help those who need it.

I have had powerful, haunting and lucid dreams which foreshadowed the September 11 attacks and wars past and future.

I have had "UFO" sightings of orange and blue orbs in the night sky.

I am consciously anti-social 80% of the time, not wanting to contaminate my psyche with the negativity of the world. Apart from my wife and family, I find normal social and work interactions and the blatant mind games and vying for position that they entail to be draining and below me. In one of those divine dichotomies that we sometimes read about, I tend to take on board the suffering and pain of others as well as other "heavy" emotion. I feel the pain of those that I despise and avoid. Now that ain't fair.

I am not a kook or a conspiracy theorist, so as you can imagine, these contradictions, dreams and strange aerial displays I have witnessed have had me questioning my sanity.

I have recently (last two weeks) started to awaken to my nature and purpose and have determined to my own surprise that I am here to help those that I go out of my way to avoid most of the time. Exactly how I am to help, I do not know, but I trust that the path will be become clearer as I awaken.

I'm sure there are many others like me. It appears that our time is now, so sound off (anonymously if necessary) - if you are just awakening like me, it may make things easier for you if you know you are not alone.

Peace Out.

Heh, a lot of what you wrote is pretty much spot on for me. I don't have the foggiest what to do if anything, maybe just 'hold the light' as some say or something else all together. For the moment it is a pretty surreal experience when i try to compare it with my life before this ephipany/benign brake down of the mental state (

Detached about everything negative, soaking up good things and just a general feeling of peace. Even when i'm seeing the economic Tsunami building up and knowing we just had some teaser waves i'm not stressed about it.

I don't think it is like in the movies where someone wakes up and knows he is 'The One'. It's more like people waking up to the realisation they are 'one of many' waking up and for the most part doing maintenance, collecting positive vibes and just being a nice person. And enough people are still consciously unaware but joining the non-fight nonetheless.

I'm looking at it playfully and suspect it is the way it should be looked at, no matter how bleak. I may come back on that statement in the future when other shoes start dropping though.

Very interesting what you have posted, traveller. This pretty much explains my past and present. I don't know what is going on, but I try to explain these changes in me in my paintings so others can see what I can't put into words as eloquently as I would like.

Ditto to what you say, i have been this way for many many years i thought i was the only one ,i too have these lucid dream but not of flying but of running through darkened cities but not on the ground but on the faces of buildings like spider man would and its such a buzz when this happens i just go faster and faster and faster sometimes on all fours but i am still in human form even the smell lingers at times the dank the death and the darkness .the strange feelings i have dont stop there i concur that all that you have said i to feel so i wont go into that but may seem silly i was in bed stareing at my digital clock and the numbers sort of changed wobbled it made me turn the clock over the numbers looked like alien writing to me and i smiled to myself felt content before i new it it was morning often too i in the front of my mind i see myself on a diistant star/ planet no colour all mono chrome peeking out from behind a square type building but i cannot see what i am looking at we have that lost feeling sensation, that we are waiting for something to transpire, i often think i was born with a twin ,a feeling of detachment follows / the 11:11 time symbal is with us constant maybe we are all just halfwayers waiting to be woken and called upon it is something we cannot and should take lightly you post has opened my mind wider to see other and to remind us people like you and me that this could all be just a dream a matrix we are neither here nor there just maybe at this very moment we are in the eye of the storm where it is quiet peaceful a sense of contentment without regard of the NWO at this time of thought and the rest of the upheavals of our society but eventually we have to come out of this eye of this vicious storm, and head towards the very unknown the world is heading to ,so be aware of your surroudings and assist who you can ,

its just a strange feeling hey

I sent you a U2U just before I realized that you don't yet have enough points to respond to me.

Fell free to leave any responses on this thread if you feel comfortable.

BTW, you can check your U2Us (messages) by clicking on the "U2U" button that pops up in your nav bar when you have messages waiting. I know it was a little while before I figured the whole thing out. I'm just hoping you can READ U2Us before you have enough points to send them.

i thought everyone was like that, aren't they, i'm odder than i thought so, how odd?

yeah, spot on for personality but i've no inclination that i should awake. i'm going to be last to the party

the words traveller and wanderer do resonate with me, no idea why.

Yes, I believe I'm one of those too. In fact, I'm fairly certain of it. Haven't wanted to believe the past life psychic who told me so a few years ago. Hadn't expected the awakening that preceded the visit to said psychic.

I can't and won't go into all of it here publically but yes, yes and yes. Been through it all and a lot more over the past four years. My advice is start meditating. They've probably been sending you signals that you've consistantly ignored, having just been awakened. With me, it was a strange spam email that kept appearing in *only my* Inbox at work - a secure government system. I took part of the advice (modified because I'm so damned stubborn) and have recently found out that their suggestion works best. Figures.

Might we start an email group to discuss this stuff? Time is running short. You were awakened now for a reason.

The best thing I could come up with for me personally was this.

One drop of water in a pond sends ripples out for a ways. One act of kindness whatever it may be will send out a ripple affecting more and more people but eventually loses it's energy in the vastness of the pond/lake/ocean.

Multiple drops affect even more of the area. One act of kindness will go out and away from you like this. However multiple acts of kindness will send out many ripples and the goal is to send out enough so that one of the ripples actually impacts you directly instead of just the surrounding area.

It's the only thing I have ever come up with that makes sense. As for the true purpose of my life I can only assume that is it.

welcome to the club brother/sister

Well i typed out a big reply but the internet was hungry i guess.

In a nut shell, I hear you and agree. I have always felt i have a higher purpose and figured everyone felt that way. I always felt like i had some great untapped potential also and found out most people don't feel either of those things ( sadly enough). I also feel anxious these days and a big high strung but I don't know why. I feel like something is about to happen and I should be doing something but I just don't know what or why but what ever it is its more important then what i know now. Granted I think everyone wants to feel special, i would imagine...

In high school this girl came up to me and said she was sometimes psychic and could see things. She told me when she saw me she saw that someday I would be very important when another race decided it would fully meet with mankind.

I always thought she was just crazy but some days i wonder if maybe not.

I could talk about other stuff but it comes out egotistical to me.

Interesting that you talk about passed lives. I have always been drawn to that and read a good recently that made me want to go try hypnosis and regression.

As suggested above, our primary purpose - this is for all of our kind and you really need to make this a priority - is to raise your vibration and work very hard to only think kind, loving (kinda sick of that word but it's the only one that works), compassionate thoughts. Don't judge anyone in any scenario. If you feel something, make sure it's compassion, love, kindness and/or generosity. That's the mission for now and you don't even need any other insight to do it. Just do it at all costs.

Please feel free to U2U me if you have any questions or need any help. I'm very genuine in that offer.

posted on Nov, 12 2008 @ 04:04 PM
Some things I've realized...

I can't do anything for anyone that I'm not willing to do for myself, and my best intentions never changed anyone's mind.

Being loving and compassionate doesn't mean being "nice". Often the most loving thing we can do is be honest. True love and compassion are acceptance and an open heart. We love what is, not what could be.

Taking on the pain of others will never alleviate that pain. It only creates more. Transmutation is a wonderful thing.

No matter where I am, what I'm doing, everything is exactly as it needs to be and I live to love it.

reply to post by MyrTheSeeker

Thank you My Friend. I composed a reply to your message in the U2U system, but I am unable to send it.

Here it is:

Hi MyrTheSeeker,

Thank you for your words. It sounds like mine resonated with you. I am glad. It looks like our time is now and we have awakened for a specific purpose.

Empathy. Yes, that is probably a more accurate term to describe my taking on board of other's emotions. I have not experienced predicting the actions of others, but I often accurately predict world events. I wouldn't call it anything like psychic phenomena though, I always thought it was just good analysis.

It is only in my dreams that I "see" and "experience" things which later come to pass. I mentioned September 11 in my original post.

I'd be very interested in reading your blog. Thanks for the offer.

I am a former soldier and law enforcement intelligence specialist. I was also a practicing survivalist for the last decade.

The years 2005 - 2008 saw me getting more and more disillusioned with the exploitative and confining societal systems we are forced to exist within, to the point that I abandoned my career and armed revolution was an attractive option and one that I planned for along with non-violent "orange" revolution.

I am the last person I would expect to be waking up to a previously unknown existence as a "Warrior of the Light". The Universe has a great sense of humour!

Part of my Awakening has been the realisation that We Are One. That changes things - big time. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I still don't particularly like people, but I cannot ignore part of myself, especially when I feel that part's pain and suffering so acutely. To condemn or judge "others" would be to condemn myself.

The hardest thing to come to terms with I guess is when people do "evil" things. The way I rationalise it is - "no-one ever does anything which is wrong in their model of the Universe". I find this awareness of other's lack of awareness helps when I am dealing with injustice.

My awakening has led to a conscious choice to be a positive influence on the "world". That is why I am here.

It's been great communicating with you MyrTheSeeker, feel free to U2U me any time.

Peace and Light to you my Brother (or Sister) in these strange and exciting times.

Nothing new to add to the thread but this is me spot-on as well.

Not a one line post.

posted on Nov, 12 2008 @ 05:33 PM
I would like to say that I agree with every post in this thread thus far!
All really good thoughts and words.
We may all have had some disagreements at ATS but it all seems to be
coming together nicely.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings OP.

rolf! yeah I agree, sick of the word but it's the only one that works..
Which should mention a thing about the intrinsic limitators of our language.
A conspiracy in itself???

Yet you portrayed it in such a way as to remind me of that song verse which I have been crossoverlaying to the very *exact* concept-since I first heard it. I could easily be a soilder as well-within love and light and all that jazz. (important while loving to not fall down dead)

Hi Traveller~ welcome to cookoo land, and I mean that in the most loving, energetic, compassionate, and happy vibrationally risen way.

A little cheer for your day.

I have had these dreams for as long as I can remember. When I have them I am always in control and I know I am dreaming. The sad thing
is, I stopped having them a couple of years ago. Anyway, I agree with
everything you wrote, I have always felt the same way.

posted on Nov, 12 2008 @ 05:52 PM
Well I suppose as you were forced to answer me via this thread, I should at least re-post the U2U that you are rsponding to here, eh?

Here goes:

"Stop describing me so accurately!

I think the word you were looking for when describing the way you experience other's emotions is "empathy", and yes, some of us have it to a degree that we can veritably "predict" what people will do next, or how they will react to any situation. It is a blessing and a burden. I prefer to look at it as the former. I think it is necessary in order to help people -- or to consciously steer them down a better path... Of course there are some to which there is no action that will produce the desired outcome. Simply show compassion for them.

I am an artist. About a week prior to the attacks of 911 I painted (digitally) an image of a city on fire and a tall building toppling over. I chock this one up to coincidence, as the picture was not precise, but it is always on my mind... I don't watch Nascar, but the day before the event, I was discussing an upcoming race and the fact that the crashes are the only interesting part. I don't remember what prompted me to say so, but I jokingly remarked that Dale Earnhardt would die. Take a guess what happened next... I have more recently had an extremely accurate prophetic dream, of an extremely mundane occurance. If you are interested, I will give you a link to my blog entry about it (among other dream related material). The dream and the prophecy are absolutely uninteresting, but the accuracy of the dream was absolute -- like deja vu, but in the wrong order.

Anyhow, I'm sure there are infinite similarities between us, but I will wrap it up for now.

I think I know what you mean by the term "wanderer". I have heard it used to describe beings that are incarnate here, not because they are advancing through the earthly realm, but because they have decided to return to this realm in order to lend a hand in these trying times. While I have no knowledge of my past at this point, I at least know where you are coming from, and each day I awaken a little bit more, and resolve a little more strongly to be kind to those around me, to cease being judgemental, and to be the catalyst for the change that I would like to see.

I look forward to future conversations"

Oh, and here is a link to my blog regarding Lucid Dreaming, if anyone is interested: Quest For Lucidity

I am grateful to all who have replied so far and also to those who are reading this thread but have not yet replied. I hope it is of use to you all. I know that the replies so far have helped me to solidify my own position. I thank you all.

I would just like to clarify something for other readers who may not consider themselves to be "wanderers"... It is important for you to know that the title of this thread and any "elitist" connotations which may be drawn from it or my posts are not what they seem.

Being on my mission does not make me any "better" than you any more than wearing a standard Casio G-Shock watch on my left wrist makes said wrist "better" than my right one.

Humanity has its own "mission" to perform. My mission is to help you complete yours. Your mission is important enough that millions of us have incarnated inside your existence to help guide you through the weird times ahead before you awaken to your Source. Please ponder that. The big-picture mission is about "you", not about "us".

This thread however, is about "us" and our Awakening, but all are encouraged to participate.

Peace Out

I too can relate to this as well. Everything you listed; I must be a traveler as well. Onto the subjects of dreams though; Ive been having really distressing dreams lately; has anyone else? In my dreams not only is everything vivid; but the emotions feel even more real if that makes sense.

For the last say 6 months I have been having many dreams of the same event but from the perspective of many different people. I still haven't figured out what the event completely is but I can tell by what I see that it is devastating to society; people are dying or running/fleeing from the cities for safety in the woods/mountains.

When I'm having these dreams there is a sense of duality as well, like I am the normal me of my dreams as well as the body I am inhabiting except that I also don't realize that I am the real me in the body I inhabit (Kind of Difficult to explain). But I can feel and sense the real fear and agony of all these people running from whatever is happening. The dreams are so powerful that it actually leaves me in a state of depression for the first hour or two of the morning.

I get a real feeling that we are approaching something that will be such a huge change that it would be like our existence phasing into the next existence in line. (Like a new day/understanding) And I fear that whether this change is ultimately good or bad depends on us; the ones who are waking up. Evil has had centuries to prepare but I have a feeling that Earth/Galaxy has a few more tricks up her sleeves; Part of which clearly involves the fact that so many of us are waking up/becoming enlightened etc. Perhaps we are the Saviors we are waiting for?

I too like most of you have a strong connection to the galaxy and a strong sense of justice. What I have come to believe is that everything in the universe is one creature or entity. And that "God" is the connection between us.

Glad to know I am not the only Wanderer.
