It's sort of an odd question, so let me try to explain a little. For over a year now I've been "working on myself" you might say, basically delving into my own mind and finding the forces at work that compel me to do the things I hate about myself, my laziness, my drinking, my occasional outbursts of rage at hurt pride, etc. But this past week I've had some major breakthroughs, what I might consider some of the most significant events in my entire life. Basically realizing a "way out", a path to change, something that will change my direction from my previous more or less aimless searching. Last night I went to bed with a sense of accomplishment after making a particularly painful yet enlightening discovery within myself.

But enough about me. This morning I logged onto Facebook, and no less than three people on my list have made postings about amazing insights or events in their life.

One person seems to have "discovered" that he's God and has been rapidly posting things in the vein of "I love all of you", "If I see you today, magical things will happen", calling people his "children", etc.

Another is a late-50s schizophrenic I know who has had a pretty stable life for a while on meds, suddenly break out with a realization that he cares not at all about this life or anyone in it, and about how the "dam is about to burst", and stuff like that, in a rapid-fire series of posts.

Another is someone my age (late 20s) who posted a huge rant essentially on the subject of how this past week has been amazingly significant for him, and detailing what's been going on in his life and basically opening up in a way that I've never seen him do as long as I've known him.

I'm trying to figure out if this is all coincidence. Have recent times been unusually personally significant for you too? I'm not asking you for details if you prefer not to give any; I really just want to know how many other people have considered the past week or so to be of unusual significance.

The only thing significant that has happened to me all week is that I booked a plane ticket and I am terrified of flying.

This was a tremendous week for me...attended a very important audition...lifelong goal just to get an audition like this. Three generation of experience culminating in to one person achieving a much higher level. Creativity, discipline and motivation at all time high...feel more alive than I have ever felt in my life.

I know what you mean...with the world seemingly feeling like it is coming to an ...end? change? shift?...feels very significant to have my life changing right now too.

Astrologically speaking, Jupiter and Uranus were in conjunction right at the beginning of Aries on June 8th - traditionally a Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, which only happens once every 14 years, donates the expansion of intuition. It could be that this conjunction was activating parts of the natal charts of the people you are speaking about. That's if you believe in astrology of course ...

i just got suitably re-employed on Wednesday, after not-working/no-income for two months...and I am rather happier now, yes-yes.

Of course, people who don't think anything happened this last week are going to be less likely to answer - right ? - so your sample is going to be skewed somewhat by that effect...

A few significant things have happened to me recently. In May of this year, I was diagnosed with cancer. The cancer has since been removed, and the oncologist declared me cancer-free. No chemo or anything. With the kind of cancer I had, I worry that it will come back, though. It's funny how how after such a diagnosis you start noticing the "little things" in life. A few of the little things I've noticed recently are how much little I had to devote to me. So many years were spent raising my family, working and ignoring myself. This almost killed me, being as I'm not the kind of person who goes running to the doctor for everything. The cancer was found in a routine scan I should have had years ago, but put off. Fortunately it was caught very early, so I've got a 95% chance of long-term survival. It made me realize just how much I'd put on the back burner; things I'd always wanted to do or go see but put off until I had the money. or when I had the time. I've got the time now, so I might as well make it count.

Congrats on your new job! I know the feeling - my business went under last summer due to the economy and have been looking for something else ever since. Whenever I hear about someone else finding work after this long dry spell, it gives me hope.

Best wishes & enjoy your "re-employment"

I had an intensive mental health assessment on Wednesday where I was 'diagnosed' as having symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder and depression. So that was definitely significant for me!
I had finally decided to get some help at the end of April because I had enough and it was severely interfering with my life. Long story short I have been fast tracked to receive some cognitive behaviour therapy, so lets see how it goes! Other than that my little xbox repair business just starting making profit (trust me it isn't as grandiose as it sounds).

To add good luck Mariposa5512 hope you make a swift recovery with continual health for many years to come!!

I really feel for you, I detest flying and probably will never do it again . Maybe you will experience something as you fly, like realising how strong you are to face your fear head on?

In answer to the op - Im still waiting.....................

I had an awaking experience, involving past life regression and a UFO sighting in the past week. I too would say BS to this. BUt the fact is yes i'm telling the truth. I have recently consulted a therapists. I was afraid i was seeing things due to the constant research i am doing on a thesis paper. I am very strong willed and have served in the Army as 11B. i have seen the aftermath of our current conflicts. I have had nightmares for years as do many of my fellow brothers, but the past few nights have been different and left a lasting mark. fearing sleep can not be healthy which is why i have sought professional help. The ufo was not seen while dreaming But i would rather not elaborate on the sighting even though the two are connected. I would like to think i have a scientific mind and want to truth no matter if my hypothesis is correct or not.

I noticed that when people make threads on websites that contain thousands of members, asking a specific question, most people who reply will (having an interest in it because they can talk about their selves and feel as an important part of a community) say that yes, they experienced this. This is of significant interest to me, personally.

My partner and I both had "epiphany moments" this week. Some of what I realized made me literally smack my forehead lol.

Just a few random comments

OP nice job looking into yourself and taking care of the "Know Thyself" goal!

and
Jupiter conjuct Uranus!! Dang!!! We should all be gambling - that's a huge transit and can make SIGNIFICANT changes, usually positive but also things like life-changing car accidents and surgeries, etc could be associated with that.

and third...

big thing? I graduated with my Master's Degree!!! Woot!

Yeah, the loomming in the air of a war and not just iran and isreal, but north and south korea around the same year. JULY 4TH 2010 TIMELINE. AND ANOTHER STOCK CRASH, BECAUSE OF IT. This is how i feel and it is getting stronger by the days pass. I hope it's wrong. The air is getting thicker and thicker it seems.

After months of personal and spiritual growth I finally broke down big time for some reason. I dont know why exactly I have my suspicions.

Since the end of may til now I have been re-living all kinds of old habits and dark thoughts, painfull memories, unbalanced emotions ect ect. It al cumlated in a falling out towards my mother me calling her everything in the book after she said she thought about doing away our dog.

As I am writting this I feel a lot better after listening to some chakra opening meditation tones I came accros here on ATS. Feeling that what I am going through is something I have to because it shows very clearly what I have not been solving, but buffering.

Yup turbulent times. The new norm was me being peacefull and centered more and more. Now I feel a form of quik sand again. That is live an adventure ups and downs all part of the whole and nothing without reason.

In reaction to the OP.
I always thought I was lazy. This is not the case. When I disconnect from my direct surroundings in favor of a fantasy world or nowadays ATS ( closer to reality, but still very much the same ), I stop caring for it. My direct reality/surroundings. This manifests as a form of lazziness, but im not apathetic or egotistical in those respects. Their were times I was very involved with my own direct reality, when I was very much in the middle of it and I knew what it meant for me and at those times I would excell in things I would otherwise not look upon for a moment.

Just saying as I believe that such workings are in many cases the fundamentals of lazziness.

Kind regards.

I think I have had a few things happen in the last couple weeks actually. I posted a thread about how I saw what I thought was Venus just slide across the sky then poof disappear. I was informed it may have been Jupiter. I don't know about that stuff, I just know I have been watching this same planet, star, for months, in the same place, and seeing it all the sudden slide was rather startling.

Now the second thing is a bit odd too. I drive a cab, that's why I have been able to watch the above mentioned star, planet, as I park in the same place every morning.
Anyone that drives for a living knows mileage is very important. I am very aware of my mileage as I have a very tight boss and it cost me dearly to go over.
Long story short, I somehow went 6 miles when I only actually went about one and half miles to my knowledge. I know this because I had checked the speedomiter prior to job. So where I went I have no clue. Felt like a time warp or something.

The last thing probably has a simple reason, but was still odd. I had a mirror fall off the wall for no known reason that I can explain. Yes it's been there a long time so maybe just gave away, but was still strange.

So, those are my few things...
