Wow I'm glad I finally read your post. I too have been noticing the same changes and feelings within myself.
Just the other day I was in the car and my girlfriend asked me to get her laptop and play this art video she was working on. So I did and after I finished viewing the video I touched the "X" on the computer screen to close the window. I touched the "x" twice and then on the 3rd attempt the window closed.

But here's the trippy part the laptop is not a touch screen computer! My friend was astounded and kept attempting to close windows on the screen by touching it also. It didn't work after that first time that I closed the window by touching the screen.
There have been other incidents that made me feel superhuman but this one by far was the most amazing cause I had a witness.

I don't notice myself having any superpowers. I do seem to notice, however, a different atmosphere. Or maybe its my illusion from say, reading threads like this.

I think two things of this: 1) People decide to change things. 2) Government illusion to keep us satisfied while they continue their plans. This would be done via technology or just plain manipulation tactics.

Lately I've become kind of lost in how to relate to all of this awakening and spiritual awareness stuff. Up until a couple of years ago I've been quite happy to give answers and guidance on things within the existential or psychological realm (which has always been kind of my function for many of my friends).
But then came a turning-point which incidentally was my own spiritual awakening. Successively since then I've become more and more reluctant to give answers to other peoples´ questions since I know I'm yet in my infancy on my path to enlightenment. The more I've learned, the more certain I've become that one must seek answers within oneself. My approach is now to try to be the best I can be and implement my knowings of the order of things in my way of life and hopefully influence other by being an inspiration - kind of when you (as an artist) attend a really good concert or perhaps view some really cool art exhibit get inspired to create yourself.
If I tell someone how or what to think, then it is no longer a thought when processed in their heads, it's a re-run of inputted information. What I strongly believe is that people need to practice actual thinking which to me often is confused with repetition of input data. This could for example allow me to have a conceptual knowledge of enlightenment if the Buddha told me what it's all about. But it would also be very much like reciting a very good poem that describes love. It would let me describe love as a concept, but I would not understand love fully until I experience it. I'm thinking that the same goes for enlightenment and the whole "awakening"-thing, and that it might actually be contraproductive to be too indulged in rationalized concepts on how to go about to achieve this and that - when actual achieving comes by not contaminating reality in way of putting it into concepts and rationale.

I just wanted to thank you for a great metaphor for the awakening experience!

I have also found metaphors and parables such as this to be closest description of my own experience. I agree that the awakening experience is a personal journey and you cannot give it to others in words. However, my own experience certainly has been facilitated by my intensive research and study of many topics over the last twelve years, including science, philosophy, spiritual works, metaphysics, etc. In fact, it was the experience of changing from my earlier "intellectual belief" to an "experiential knowing" that was so dramatic. One of my favorite activities is rereading this same material and experiencing its now-apparent, deeper wisdom compared to the intellectual understanding I had previously gleaned.

So I have been working on a collection of metaphors pointing to the same experience - and love to see how others describe it. Thank you again!

Amazing… that I stumbled in here!

I have had vision at least since I was four, beginning gently as if being trained by a loving Father, and maturing as I aged, and only recently learning that are some who understand and with whom I can speak and write of such things. The first time I heard of indigos was as a teenager in the 70’s. Some man, who I took to be a charlatan, photographing auras for a spirituality group. Mine was purported to be indigo and there were oo’s and ah’s from a few. Just a few years ago, a young woman I knew told me she had a spiritual name for me, and Indigo was part of it, which I failed to understand.

While I am spiritually attracted to the few special people from any, all, or no faiths, I am a Christian, studied and degreed from a seminary noted for its mystical theology, and ordained by what appears to me as possibly the last of the profoundly spiritual and mystical bishops. My visions are often made up of symbolism easily understood as Judeo-Christian imagery and very much in keeping with the writings of the great Christian mystics.

So many comments here dovetail with my own experiences, my intuitive understanding of meaning and purpose in all this, and my expectations of what is to come.

* A sense that we are being prepared,
* A sense that something is about to happen, chaos and destruction seem imminent.
* A sense that others will be dependant upon our preparation.
* That the preparation is being brought about inside of us by Another.
* That the world and its societies are failing, and it is very much related to a time to come in which our gifts will become necessary to be employed. “Like a polished arrow, I have hid you away.”

A few questions:

1) The words, “A sense of a foreshortened future” certainly match my own inner feeling and behavior. Those words happen to be part of the diagnostic criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Is the acceptance (begrudging as it might be) of being an indigo, somehow related to the experience of life-changing trauma?

2) Our spiritual growth seems proactive as well as reactive—a withdrawal from worldly existence in reaction and a journey toward the spiritual, as if drawn, being the proactive—the non-egoic, transpersonal experience in modern psychological terms. Is this a result of society which emphasizes production rather than humanity?

The one part of what I have read of all these posts which seems to be at conflict is the apparent contradictory emphases of peace and of coming battle. Many of my vision include my being on a mission, apparently caring for refugees. I cannot distinguish, as these become far more complex, if these visions are indicative of this present time in spiritual terms or if they are indicative of a future purpose which I am to accept.

3) Is there some place where such things can be discussed among those who share such thoughts? If so, I hope there is a way someone can contact me privately. Sadly, I think: Once upon a time, before the popularity of self-justifying “prosperity gospel,” such a place would have been, for me, the Church.

In my visions, I too am caring for refugees.

I feel like this is a very natural finding in humans. Are instincts always keep us on our toes in case of an emergency.

I'm glad I could bring you to some common ground. I'm in the middle of finals right now, and for the first time in my life, do not care how they turn out. As for the whole parents thing.. I know it's frustrating and honestly you won't be able to make them understand right now. Just do what is right for you. Make yourself happy. Live up to your own expectations. You were given the opportunity to be on this earth right now. Don't spend the precious time you have here conforming to what anyone expects of you because only you know how to make your life truly enjoyable. If not, then what a waste of time this whole shenanigan is. I don't want to claim that we're AWAKENING because that description has been used over and over, and due to the fact that we're paving our own way to happiness I'll just say the drolls of this everyday routine are starting to become pretty transparent and we've come to realize all the holes in the logic. I'm glad I'm not alone. Very glad. Keep on keepin' on my friend.

It seems there are two distinct groups here. 'Leaders' and 'Carers'.

General characterisers I seem to have noticed in the leader group is:

Extraordinary perception and awareness.

Introvert though probably very popular and liked (and maybe not seen that way).

Highly intelligent.

High level of fitness and health without any 'effort'.

Ability to read emotions and manipulate(not good) people with ease.

Highly perceptive of surroundings, notice even the slightest change in things, see things others don't.

A 'photographic memory' (I don't think that is the right term though). Ability to recall and remember incredible amounts of information such as conversations, events, people and locations.

Clear sense of values rather than acceptance of others.

Understanding of drugs? Not necessarily the use (Unsure but seems to be related)

Do these things sound familiar to some of you?

It also seems I have instantly been able to identify with many posts of people on the same level. I think anyone with this feeling could do the same. Accepting these characteristics is not arrogance. To embrace them and know definitely empowers development.

Point about drugs should be something more like...

Desire to seek altered state of mind and peak state. Most likely interested in high adrenalin activities, appreciate importance of good breathing, ect.

Star sign connections here could be interesting... I am Pisces.

I am a gemini. For the record...i don't believe in that $h!t though!

Maybe it has something to do with the energies of the solar system. Our sun is spiting out new particles and we are set to align with the milky way soon.

See my post for more.

Hey military man I agree with you on that and I did go awol. I've skipped across the country and I'm staying at my parents in the mountains. It was really weird I had a what I was told was a breakdown and got administered into psychiatric care. It was terrible.

I calmed down but the trip I had was too far out to explain. And now my thoughts and focus have gone up like I'm almost reaching a meditative state without trying. But my body is going a haywire. How've you been feeling physically lately? My instincts are also on red alert and I have a sense that I need to travel and go somewhere but everything is getting locked down. I'm struggling to renew my british passport so I can't get hold of my bank account. Its really weird all the way around.

I'm also stressing out because I'm from South Africa and we look like we're finally gonna have civil war over the apartheid thing. Its a nightmare waiting to happen. So I'm more than keen to get out. Looks like you boys might get to see Africa pretty soon. On the up sides its pretty warm here. ;p

I dont want to call you crazy, but your not doing yourselves any favors here. Your basically making the argument yourselves.

Coming from an agent of the matrix, that means alot...*sarcasm*

The only thing that I pay attention to now is music. I'm constantly searching for new music, since I feel like I've outgrown much of what I used to listen to. Music isn't just entertainment to me, though, either; I'm looking up the origins of different styles, its relationship to the chakras, the effects it has on plants, etc. for some reason it's become very important to me.

My problem is that my brain won't stop on any particular subject. It runs like a dvd on fast-forward. I can't figure out which direction to go in, what to study, or even which particular feelings to land on. I would love to be a part of a positive movement going forward, but I need to be sent a direction in which to go first.

Look within and focus solely on simply being. Let your thoughts pass you by, don't cling to those that come, just observe. Once you remove yourself from the thought-making process, your mind will no longer blur the guidance that is radiating from your Source.

Would kinda kill the excitement to know the exact date, at least IMO. Also, did it ever occur to you that these discussions (on the net and IRL) could be bringing said events closer? After all, it seems many people are focusing their thoughts and energy on these upcoming events.

I've often wished that I could be like you describe. I'm interested in the different energies all around me, and I wish that I could sense them and feel them and be able to be like you say you are. It's just so interesting and fascinating. Do you think there is any way that you can tap into the different energies without being born with the gift? If so, I would really liek to know. I've often dreamed of being able to feel the whole world through my senses.

We are all born with it, no exceptions. Some choose to ignore it for so long that they forget what "it" is and how to recognize "it". Simply be still in body and mind and observe the feelings that come.

If you don't feel nothing then that implies that you feel something. Could clarify a bit more...

It's amazing to see all of the responses and next to no in a negative or pessimistic light!

Like many of you have stated, I too have felt "different" since I was a young child. I have had countless weird experiences that have lately made me feeling a little nervous, antsy, and maybe a bit paranoid. But I know I am only feeling this way because I am extremely sensitive and therefore aware that something is in the air...A huge sense of change is abound and lately, more than ever, everyday things in the routine of life just seem so minute and meaningless to me compared to what I feel is the truth. I have a very hard time caring about social issues in my personal life, and even work, relationships, materialist things of nature too. I have always had VERY intense dreams. I dreamed of 9/11 before it happened, and since then and maybe before too I have been having what I have always described as "end times" dreams because thats the feeling I get/how I interpret them/understand. I have always wondered why I have not found more people who took dreams more seriously because I have recognized a distinct difference and feeling of TRUTH in some of mine, which I never forget over the years.

I saw someone posted that they have a reocurring dream about being on top of a building and "fighting" against another team of people/beings. I just thought I would also share mine. I had a dream many years ago that has always stuck out to me and not faded from my memory. It's like it stays close to my heart and protected. But what to do with it??? In my dream, I was with a few others running through a city on foot and being chased by some white van that looked like a TV crew van or something. I remember some type of graffiti but not in detail. Suddenly, people who looked like agents or something in black jumped out of the back of the van and I think they captured me and a guy. Long story short, we ended up in hand cuffs and on top of a tall (I think white maybe not) building. I remember them telling us that they were going to make it look like a giant suicide on top of the building and that we had committed this for some type of terrorist act. They had tv cameras up top, and I believe helicopters, etc. They were trying to force us to look like we were a part of the conspiracy! ! ! And this could not be further from the TRUTH! But somehow I knew that the truth would come out and I was fighting for it in a destiny kind of way. I remember running down the street at night away from these men and trying to grab anyone who would listen to me and tell them what they were trying to do! I was running in buildings trying to hide but they kept finding us, and it seemed people thought we were crazy/wouldn't listen/didn't realize the severity. Anyway, I remember a GIANT projection television screen was turned on reporting live news in the middle of the city, and millions were watching some man give a speech and try to act as though he were bringing us all together- all of the nations, millions- and that he was rising to leadership before all eyes. It had to be after something catastrophic when the world was in need and desperately looking for someone with power to lead.

Anyway, the last thing I can remember is a few of us handcuffed and on our knees on top this building in all the chaos, we were going to be blamed for something huge instead of the truth reaching the people. Only those who would listen would know the truth in these times.

I have dealt with more in my 23 years of life than anyone I have ever met. And I am doing really well now, but still stand amazed looking back and wondering how I could have been so lost in this world before- because I never felt like that was me. I tried to numb myself and get lost in alcoholism, eating disorders, the industry, and promiscuousness activity for the last few years, drifting further from who I had always felt called to be. I spent my college years in rehabs & treatment facilities. Before all that happen my family had always told me something was wrong with me and put me in and out of psych wards for years of my teenage life, on different medications which I am now completely free of. I don't know why I became so lost but a part of me feels like something was trying to stop me from realizing & achieving my destiny, and part of me feels like I went through it because it helped me WAKE UP in the end.

I hope that this finds all of you in peace & love, and I encourage everyone to keep reaching out to one another!!! By NO MISTAKE are WE who are here, here NOW at this moment! Everyday I am becoming more introverted which I never was before, but I feel like I am working towards a greater cause & plan. I am searching more than ever before to find the truth and I am driven by something that I cannot describe with great force & passion. I have a longing to love like I cannot describe! Which also causes me to be even more different. I feel so much and so strong. I think I use to try to escape it but no chance now, no more. I am praying that God points me to where He wants me to be now & I am completely willing to go wherever that is! People have always told me I am wise beyond my years, and like many of you mentioned many have come to me for answers. I also felt that longing to go home and be with God and said many times that I cannot make myself get caught up in things that are so minute because I truly feel something so much greater and beyond is in store. I am now seeking humanitarian work & mission trips like I use to travel & do as a younger teen.

Sorry to ramble, but I joined because I felt it was time to start to speak up and share, in hopes that we can begin to come together and find the answers we are searching for together. God Bless You! - B
