Thank you so much for this thread. I cannot believe that are more people out there like me that have "awakened."
My personal story:
I knew from about the age of 3 that I was not here by chance, nor was I going to have a normal or "easy" life. I have ALWAYS been interested in the
paranormal, in OBE's, UFO's, psychics, mystics, and the like. My first memory was of watching The Ghostbusters cartoon show on Saturday mornings
and being obsessed with it. I read just about every ghost book in my elementary library and would frequently take them out again and again. I just
KNEW that there was something out there and that I had a part in it. I had my first real "sensitive" experience when I was about 4 or 5 and I
remember talking to a deceased relative who I never met or knew. I remember telling my mother about it and her going as white as a sheet. It wasn't
until about 20 years later when I finally told her about the things that I have experienced that she finally admitted that the family as a whole had
at least some gifts. I grew up having strange experiences whether it was dreams, actually seeing things, or just knowing things were going to happen.
I finally met my mentor in college who saw that I had a gift and he at least started me off on the correct path. I have always taken the
"layman's" approach to the things that I have experienced, but more and more I find it hard to wrap my head around the things that I am able to see
and do. I was lucky as a young child to run across a family member that also had a gift and was able to at least start me off with basic energy work.
I have gone through many stages of meditations and practices to channel and control this energy (20 years in fact), yet I find that I still cannot
take the blinders completely off. I KNOW there is something there that many "grounded" people cannot see, and I get aggravated when they can't see
the way I do. I was a pretty popular guy throughout my schooling, although I experienced a lot of bullying do to the fact that I was the only one who
would stand up to them. Back in those days I changed my glasses more often than I changed my socks.
But I still had my share of awkwardness
and ridicule when the topic of the paranormal or UFO's or whatever came up. I began to choose my friends very carefully, and those that I have
chosen have come to believe me, as one of my friends have said "You have scared me enough times to believe that you do have something going on in
Over the years I have really been a lone energy practitioner (I call myself that as I don't really trust organized religion in any form whether it's
Pagan or Christian or whatever), and other than my mentor, have had no real outside guidance into what I experience. I only know what I can do and
what I see, and that is good enough for me.
I really don't feel as alone in the world as I used to and I'm glad people like you are out there to communicate the fact that there IS something
special going on. From reading many of the posters experiences, I know that there is a mass awakening going on, and maybe we'll be the ones to guide
the rest into another stage of human development.
Kudos to you, friend.
