Hello ATS community! I hope that you will soon be my "ATS family" as well!
I have been ambling through the site (unseen) for years, but have found myself this past 12 months visiting weekly or daily. The more I read and
ponder, the more I realize I am truly not alone in my views of this world, this life, this consciousness.
May I introduce myself...I currently call the northcoast of the Midwest my home. I also must admit I am a "corporate slave" at the moment, but
anxious to talk with other ATS members about how to find alternative streams of income so I can someday "escape" the 8-5 (which is more like 8-8
these days) -- but I am also grateful to have a career and income during this trying time. I'm a parent...an aspiring writer...a dreamer and a
realist...a skeptic and a believer...an introvert who can talk your ear off or sit by the water's edge with you in silence and joy...a long-time
vegetarian...recovering chocoholic...cat (and dog) lover...lousy cook.
When I reach my 20 posts and learn the ropes (which I admit are a bit intimidating), you'll likely find me in the Gray Area or the Paranormal spots.
My personal experiences have mainly circled around what I assume are ghosts, spirits, even demons perhaps???
More about me...I was an early 11:11-spotter, long before it became well-known - yet I am still unsure of what it truly means despite years of
investigating. I am truly disheartened by seeing my beloved sky turned into a chem-fest, and long to see "real" clouds of my youth.
What do I believe? Some days, not a darn thing. Most days, I believe that we are in the dark -- that there is far more going on all around us than
we'll ever uncover. Are there physical aliens? Or are they interdimensional beings? Are they "good" or "bad"? Is there a shadow government and
all that that entails? Are time shifts and skips real? Are we stuck in a matrix, or do we collectively create it each day?
All I do know is that since I was very young, I felt so in love with this Earth, almost to a fault -- I love the sky, the sea, the wind, the
creatures...and I feel the spirit of place, of trees and rocks and melting snow. I even escort the spiders and ants out of my home instead of giving
them the old heel. And, while I love my fellow human beings, sometimes I just shake my head and wonder about how little progress we've made despite
our technological and scientific advances. And, I chuckle, thinking maybe the "zombies" are already among us -- those who are so hypnotized by
media, entertainment, the latest and greatest material gadgetry that they are dead to the real world around them.
Be kind, be gentle -- it's my first ATS post and my first forum post - ever, anywhere! (Really - I'm a true newbie).
I hope to be able to add value to the "family" and support -- as well as bring some friendly banter and perhaps opposing views. If I break the
rules, it's because I'm learning to hold my breath and swim here in the deep end, and not intentional disrespect of the swim lanes. Maybe throw me
an inner tube if you see me floundering?
Looking forward to talking with you all.
