I tend to think that all of us that are 35-50 years old are in the same boat. All of us are wondering when this ride is gonna end and who else are we gonna run into when we're getting off of it. We've had kids, raised them, mostly, and been working for years, so when does this big event we've been waiting on gonna kick off?? I know as a teenager I was certain I would meet aliens, walk on another planets surface, and travel thru space before I died! No doubt about it! But here we are in the year 2013, and it's no different then it was in 1990, when I graduated high school, and thought I was about to take over the world! Granted, during the 90's i had A LOT of fun with many different people, on consecutive nights even. But it seems this last 12 or 13 years has been spent just waiting and waiting. On what? I do not know, but man i wish it would hurry the hell up and get here already!! lol

After reading all these posts and including my own, I have some thoughts:

What if its true that some people are descended from things that aren't 100% human? Meaning those supposed stories of ETs interbreeding with humans, or even way back to ancient times... Crazy idea I know, but what if we have embedded (genetic?) knowledge of things and we are supposed to catalyze something. Blah, sounds too crazy so please disregard

Well of course psychology would say that. It's a business and they want to keep their business going. I utilize psychology. They touch my real world problems (the situation that happened to me, and the reason I'm there), and don't discuss spirituality, god, or belief with me. My current therapist can't handle it. I wish my previous therapist hadn't relocated to another VA. We had some really interesting spiritual conversations.

After explaining my beliefs, I asked my previous therapy, "So how about it doc? Am crazy?"
She said, "No, I think there needs to be more in the world like you. I've never quite met anyone like you."

So I'd say NO! They didn't lock me up or say I have a personality disorder. At one point when I was on a medication they though I was bi-polar - but I'm not. I was just on a med that flipped my lid.

Anyhow, psychology is standardized to recognize accepted forms of behavior and thinking. That doesn't mean their the authority on what is proper or right behavior or thinking. Psychology is short-sited in my opinion. It stifles individuality and outside the box thinking. And make no mistake, psychology is a box, that they are trying to stuff everybody into. Think the same, act the same, have the same wants, do what your told...

It's a control. Right now, I'm utilizing psychology to get under control, my fears that have developed because of a situation I experience. But they aren't telling me I'm crazy because of my beliefs and worldview.

For the last 2 or 3 years i've had this feeling of something is going to happen but not sure what,when or where.not sure how to describe it but something IS coming..just don't know what.

It's not a feelong of impending doom,maybe something spiritual or enlightning,the world is changing all the time & we are unearthing all kinds of things..maybe something will be found that changes everything.

Just curous about your post. Ides of March; I believe most know what that means. With said, you and many others have stated that "pieces of the puzzle are fallling into place," and your comment of the wait is coming to an end soon.

I would love to know your thoughts; of course without straying from the OPs precedent.


So there's a general agreement on something happening on March? This is very interesting, last December I had an experience that can only be described as receiving a telepathic message, can't remember that something like this ever happened before. The message was just this: "March 31st". Maybe it doesn't mean anything, nevertheless I find it interesting that others have a feeling about March as well.

That's an awesome story. I was born with "the veil" and with blue/grey eyes which designated me as a changeling/witch baby. It freaked my family out, LOL...but it just added to their confidence in me having the "gift". I've been able to read people's minds and predict what was gonna happen and see spirits since I was old enough to speak...apparently, before I can even remember...I remember I would scare people in stores by walking up to them and talking to them about what was on their mind (I didn't know it wasn't normal when I was a kid) so my mom stopped taking me out to stores, haha. And I've seen things...spirits, demons, whatever you would like to call them...some that looked quite normal (other than clearly being dead) and somewhat were clearly non-human. And all of the women in my mother's family can tell the future...but they like to try to cast and channel and I stay away from that, I don't wanna attract more attention to myself from the other side than I already do.

LOL, well, it's good to know a fellow odd duck. I literally think it's all my family's fault that I'm an odd duck...if they wouldn't have encouraged all the witch/psychic stuff, I think that the "gift" would've faded away. Oh, well...I am what I am in that aspect and I can't change it now.

I'd like to see if we can recognize some common traits.

I don't know my blood type, sorry.

Here's a link to a personality test. It'd be interesting to see if several of us get the same results.

Here are my results.

INFPs are imaginative idealists, guided by their own core values and beliefs. To a Healer, possibilities are paramount; the realism of the moment is only of passing concern. They see potential for a better future, and pursue truth and meaning with their own individual flair. Typically unconventional, Healers often develop an offbeat personal style and enjoy expressing themselves with creative pursuits like writing or art. They value originality and want to be authentic and individual in what they do. Following tradition holds little appeal for the INFP, who would prefer to invent something that feels unique to them. INFPs are usually flexible and accommodating, and can often see many points of view. They usually try to support other people but will react strongly if they feel their values are being violated. They especially hate being steamrolled, and want an open, supportive exchange of ideas. INFPs are sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others. However, they also tend to be independent, soft-spoken, and reserved, and can sometimes seem aloof, especially to new acquaintances. They prefer to seek depth in relationships where they feel a real connection. Read more about INFP >> Read more:

Mine was INFJ: The Counselor
INFJ is the rarest type in the population

Blood type is common AB+

INFJs often appear quiet, caring and sensitive, and may be found listening attentively to someone else’s ideas or concerns. They are highly perceptive about people and want to help others achieve understanding. INFJs are not afraid of complex personal problems; in fact, they are quite complex themselves, and have a rich inner life that few are privy to. They reflect at length on issues of ethics, and feel things deeply. Because Counselors initially appear so gentle and reserved, they may surprise others with their intensity when one of their values is threatened or called into question. Their calm exterior belies the complexity of their inner worlds. Read more:

I will probably catch a lot of crap for this, and maybe it has been brought up already, but I didn't want to read through 10 pages of people explaining their waiting situation.

Why are you waiting for outside influences to dictate a change in your life? That is EXACTLY why the "system" people are complaining about exists.

If you don't like your life, change it. Get out of your comfort zone, try something new. Travel the world.

Waiting gets boring, and in the meantime you get distracted from truly enjoying this life.

... I used to feel the same sentiments as many of you, years ago

There have been some awesome posts in this thread, including yours. Yes, others have said this too. I think however, there is a basic misunderstanding of what "the waiting" is.

The waiting talked about by most in this thread, isn't the kind of waiting you're referring to. It's an intuition, a knowing deep inside of you, an expectancy of an event that will affect all humans at a profound level.

I for one, have made many drastic changes in my life. I'm one of those people who takes the bull by the horns, and wrestles with him. Sometimes to my benefit, sometimes to my detriment. The point is, you're advice is good for those "playing" a whole different waiting game.

Thanks for the response! No, I really meant I have felt something will happen since at least 20+ years ago at an earlier ago. However, I felt enough conviction to do something about it only ~3 years ago. Since changing my lifestyle it has been the best the EVER in my life. Of course it's not something easy that anyone can simply decide and DO.. Not like there are many risk takers left in the world today anyways
PM me if you have any detailed questions =b

For me this feeling can best be answered in lyrics of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin.

This thread is really fast growing and kind of overwhelming!
It´s amazing how much we have incommon. Our lives are different, some are happy, some depressed, some are loners, some have big families and active social life so it´s not like we are people who "only dream about change but never act". It´s something different that we wait. Who feels the same, knows.

I thought about it more and made some points that are most relevant for me personally and also similar to many posts in this thread.

One part is personality
1. I had this feeling since I was a child. It was strange deep feeling of self-consiousness, like sudden realisation that I exist. In this time and space, but it felt strangly illusory at the same time. Impossible to explain.

2. Different view of the world. I´m happy to have some family members who are similar and share many of my views and thoughts, but in general… yes it´s the feeling like watching really horrible and irrational, stupid movie that you keep waching just in hope that in the end some meaning is revealed.

3. Empathy and despise towards others… funny controversity, I know. Empathy because so many suffer and I´d like to do something to end all the suffering. But despise towards stupid and careless people who cause suffering to other people, animals and nature. This is so hard sometimes that I´ve seriously considered to end all connections I have with this society and move to some remote place. It´s not just rational „it´s bad how people treat others and destroy environment“, it´s emotionally very hard to bare.
I started to write about enviromental problems since junior high. I was good at wrinting. I remember when we had essey theme „Our worries“, most kids wrote about relationships and personal trubles. I wrote long essey about rainforests, testanimals, violence, wars etc. I saw these things as my worries and didn´t even think about any personal little issues.

4. I have this feeling like I have forgotten something important. This has gone very strong over the past year or less. I have it every day now, when I try to remember... something.

5. Interest in many many topics, learing about many things: brain chemistry, animals, history, different theories, aliens, quantum physics, other cultures, astronomy, medicine, philosophies etc. It´s like an overwhelming lesson "Introduction to Earth and humanity".
I´ve been interested in all religions and esoteric teachings. I was quite into New Age in my teen years, but now I´m rather critical towards their ideology. It´s like learing everything and also looking for something, looking for answers.

6. Feeling like an observer, someone said like living cam recorder
. Like being outside and observing.
My thinking is mostly verbal not visual so I´ve always described everything I see to myself. And tried to explain people´s strange behaviour, sometimes understanding them, sometimes being angry, but constantly talking in my head. It really is like trying to describe this world to aliens

7. What´s somehow different from most people here is that I´ve actually enjoyed going nightclubs and big concerts, but only with my close people, sisters and few good friends.
I have very little social circle, not many friends. But when I was younger I liked parties because then I could almost feel like I´m part of this world. To forget myself for a while. "Just having a party here like all other normal people do" kind of thing. I think it helped me to settel in and feel less separated. Loud pop music has good grounding effect for me, it helps me to cennect with this world and society.

Part 2 in next post...

posted on Feb, 25 2013 @ 12:55 PM
Other part is waiting itself

1. Waiting some huge gamechanger and feeling that when THIS happens I remember and can start my job.

2. I´ve been thinking that I stop reading news, but I still check them almost every day, because falf-conciously I feel the need to check is THIS started yet.

3. If I try to think what IT can be, then I have a feeling that firstly it´s something so different from everything we imagine that we can´t understand it before it starts. But it might have something to do with the Sun and extraterrestrials. It might be related to the sky. At first we see strange events in the sky. But this is just a guess. Feeling and some dreams hint to that too.

4. The old society collapses and then we can start to build new and better world, but something has to change within people too. Maybe cosmic rays or sun change something, vibrations, DNA? I don´t know.

5. I do have these moments now and then when something happenes or some life changes are ahead- "it´s not a big deal, soon it doesn´t matter anymore anyway".

6. One of my hobby is reading prophecies, other people visions and meaningful dreams about possible future events. Just in hope to recognise THIS, to remember, to find any clues about the event we all are waiting.

7. Like some others have mentioned, there are lot of syncroncities in my life too recently. With numbers, with information I think about and find next moment, with just any circumstances. Small things mostly, but always syprsing.

Same has stated the most terrifing possibility that maybe the thing we are waiting never came. It was supposed to come but didn´t for whatever mysterious reason. But I don´t believe it because in this case we would say: "I used to wait something for years, but now this feeling is gone." But I can´t say that. For me this feeling has grown stronger over past few years and exeptionally strong over past few months.

If THIS happens, maybe we all meet in a huge space ship, like mission control

For the record, I´m 30.

If you had bothered to read the WHOLE thread, you would see it's not people saying they "need" something to change their life, it's about people who have felt their entire life - from childhood - that "something" - world changing (not their personal life) was going to happen during thier lifetime.

... First, where did I use the word "need" ??? I understand your point that people have "felt" something their entire lifetime that "something" - world changing (shouldn't that affect all life, personal or not?) will happen.

I'm still seeing the same thing going in this thread, pages that I don't want to read of blood types, life situations, and other things that are in existence because of choices people directly or indirectly made through choices made of truth or misinformation. whatever.

And in going through the thread, some members of this forum seem to be in "need" of change because the don't seem able to do it themselves. Just from what I see so far...

I think the following picture is relevant:

Most importantly the wave that occurs, in this picture, roughly around "N" and ending around "I."

Even from a strictly rational perspective, we can see that the world is right on the cusp of many changes. Everything from technology integration, to communications, to new science. We have been exploring the "basics" of relativity for a while now, and the next steps are almost certain to be very big.

Heck, even in the video game industry, the next true advancement is likely to be an entirely new platform. In current games, we have almost photo-realistic environments to explore with very realistic physics involved. So much so, that I feel the industry has started to code games to simply be more taxing on the current hardware so that sales can continue. The next step is likely to be virtual reality.

It seems like there is a change like this every so often in human history. Where a single large discovery changes the course of mankind for the subsequent years. While such a thing is inevitable, I think that we will see it manifest in almost every arena, rather than a single one. Imagine the possibilities.. Biggest question is, will humanity be able to handle it, or will we just use it to continue to destroy ourselves? I think there is a distinct possibility that more advanced science and technology will make things like the atomic bomb look like firecrackers. The same tech could also be used for so much growth.. What will humanity decide?

Seems to be a self-limiting mechanism of some sort in the universe. Should be interesting.

That's my motto (stop waiting, start living)
Even still no matter how absorbed I am into living, it's like
waiting with abated breath for the other shoe to drop (concerning
the state & morals of the planet these days)

Delusional as it might seem, I would like to think that the planet will
somehow survive after humans destroy themselves;
Once earth has had enough, it will become our worst enemy.

Great motto! Life really is about action and not waiting.. From my experience so far. People who "wait" for change are usually vocal complainers and the first ones ignored. However, it seems no one stands up for anything these days except to go to the restroom or get another snack. All blind, deaf, and dumb!

Let the crash commence!

I hope it IS soon and that it gets people to dream of a better way and then do it.

What a load of tosh.

I'm 38 years old, have a higher IQ than you, have lost multiple of my nearest and dearest to cancer, (including a partner) so have had plenty of time alone, and 'still' don't feel like I'm waiting for something.

Just saying.. I said at the start I had always thought this was something I felt and not many others did. Throughout my life I have asked people if they could feel something just over the horizon, or if you felt you had some sort of destiny that would unfold greater then your own personal one.

You are the first I have seen reading through the thread that is the contrary, like my wife or friends or most people I know they do not sense this. I am not saying I am special or "we" are, but honestly I have felt this way most of my life. Not the mommy & daddy tell I am special, but that I am or that I will witness something that has either not happened ever in humanity or very rarely.

Also I am sorry for your loss.

Thank you for the kind words, and who knows, maybe *I'm* the special one ;-)

It's fascinating to see how many of us on ATS all have the same "sense" that something huge is on the horizon, and that most of us have had this "feeling" going as far back as we can remember. Maybe that's what drew us here in the first place ?

Add me to that list.

Going all the way back to my childhood, I've always had this strange gnawing sensation in the back of my mind that I was going to be witness to some kind of huge world changing event (for lack of better words).

But I've never been able to put my finger on it. Every time there's some sort of event happening in the world, I always think in the back of my mind: "Is this it ? Is this the event that's the big one ?"

Whatever "IT" is, the only thing I'm pretty sure of is that it has nothing to do with me or my life directly per se, but just more along the lines of knowing that I'm going to live in a time of some sort of massive worldwide event that somehow changes our existence on this planet forever.

I've always felt like the oddball in the crowd... the feeling of being on the outside looking in (again, for lack of better words) and that I'm surrounded by sleepwalkers with low IQ's completely oblivious to the world around them. For this reason, I'm not much of a people person and tend to be introverted... deep in thought and analyzing everything around me to death... watching, waiting...

Don't get me wrong. I'm surrounded by loving friends and family and live life to the fullest. But deep down inside, something's not right... It's almost like there's a proverbial elephant in the damn room, but I don't know what it looks like yet.

On top of that, I've always felt as though I was born in the wrong era, but for whatever reason I'm stuck in this one ?

Meh, I call myself the blacksheep-rebel-without-a-cause.

I can relate to so many posts in this thread, it's not even funny.
It's nice to see I'm not alone afterall.

Thanks ATS.

made me think of this thread

Where it was announced that the sun is emmitting a new particle which is mutating matter. maybe it's started, but not kicked in yet

FTR I'm 35 and have felt the waiting feeling for aslong as I can remember. It sort of went away when i started meditation a few years ago, but it's still there in the background.

The only time you're waiting is when you have nothing better to do.
Some people are content with that, some aren't.
If you're tired of playing the waiting game then it's time to play the acting game.
Only you can decide how that game is played.

EDIT: i dont know my blood type
edit on 24/2/13 by SecretKnowledge because: (no reason given)

I remember that thread. Il dig it out in a minute. It was something to do with an asteroid(i think) that would hit us and reactivate some dormant power in those with negative blood groups. It was a bit "out there", but interesting, none the less. Il link it when i find it.

Good thing I'm an O negative eh? Not only can I give everything in life, I can donate every ounce of my body in death to those in need.

Me too, im an A neg, for some reason my body rejects my o positive babies, thats a weird old humdinger aint it?? i idont want to derail the thread with this though.
I have to say its lovely to see so many like minded people on here. And il say this now, something that ive been ashamed and embaressed to say before, but as im amongst friends, i dont actually have any friends aside from my two lovely (a negative) daughters. I dont like people, i dont know why, i feel like a different species.

I think the best way to say it for me, is I hate everyone, but I love them all dearly too and would probably give my life to save any stranger.
