I hope you are feeling better! Nothing like us football chicks! I get more than a passing glance from strangers at my son's games. He's well over 6 ft tall and 202 pounds..only 14 ...but thinks maybe I might want to tone it down but I might be a little rough! Lol I have tried, believe me, but at the parents' meeting I have just been floored by discussions. Of course I know it's just a game and it's all about sportsmanship. But...can't we kick a little butt and still have fun and be good sports?!lol This is my third son so maybe I'm a bit desensitized to the whole kumbayah attitude!

Gotta work on that...I'm usually a very nice, considerate person but football somehow turns me into a "psycho"..thank God I didn't have girls. Couldn't imagine what I'd do as a pageant or dance mom!

Thanks for the kind words.

Wow! I read your story and feet felt so sincere. I know I'm not alone in a whole new way now. It has really helped me to share and be braver than I thought I was. Sometimes reading everyone's experiences have benefitted me more than sharing my own.

You all are amazing. What's great about this thread is that there is no "off topic" but little pieces of unsolved puzzles.

My u2u is still screwy but I think the problem is on my end!

I am visualizing you healing quickly, if anyone here would like to do the same please do. If it is alright with you?

If you are willing try this...Think of tiny little workers repair you with cute orange hardhats (if it helps they can be hot looking lol). Think to yourself and to them "Heal" and "Great job!"

My Brother and Dad swear they saw a Star that was dancing one early morning. Being an amateur astronomer I told them it was Venus but they swore it was moving and swaying like it was playing with them. I of course mentioned they were possibly high on swamp gas too. lol But I do believe them.

Can't say as I watch football never really saw the point even though I was all but forced in high school to play. I like to be more creative if I can these days, but if it makes you happy and creates good memories, then I am all for it!

Really I should be working on a thread about visualization, but I think we need to start seeing (visualizing) a bright future, not a programed entrainment induced distopia...

Yes, negative thinking/emotions definitely impact us. I wonder what your family background us? I see you live in South Africa. A number of very enlightened people that I've met online live in South Africa, whether they are Black or White. I've never been there but people who have describe it as a very spiritual place to be.

My background is largely Celtic and a little Native (or Aboriginal, as many say here in Canada.) The psychic ability runs on both sides of my family and seems to also run, bizarrely, on both sides of those sides too. In my family, it's more like the ability to make things happen than it is to see things coming. Sometimes I wish I could see a tragedy or a bad mistake before it comes, but very rarely do I have any sense of that. On one side of my family comes the ability to win on lotteries, bingo, casinos, etc., way more than could be coincidental of course. On the other, making bad things happen to people (my immediate family does not associate with these negative relatives of ours.) I've discovered, I believe, the ability to make people well by visualizing it. I've known a number of very good people who were very ill and doctors were telling them there was nothing that they could do, and in one case a very aggressive form of cancer that the doctors said they couldn't treat. I focused on her looking and feeling like normal, like I did for the others, and one day I saw her looking and feeling like I imagined. I look at it as a form of prayer.

I have other knacks too, but I don’t want to say too much at once and sound crazy or something lol In my life I’ve experienced a lot of bizarre syncrincitiy and it seems that spirits are magnetically drawn to me. Perhaps if we can perceive them, they come to us for attention? I personally view most UFO activity as a spiritual thing as well.

But it seems to run in families. Not that someone couldn't find it on their own.

Peace.

Night Star
I see another male has joined us, my dear friend LoneCloudHopper. Welcome sweetie!


Hello, Night Star.


It's an interesting account and I like supporting people who have the courage to stand up and tell their story. The truth will never come be discovered (worked out or whatever) if we shy away from sharing what we know and discussing it.

I agree. We all seem to have different pieces of a puzzle that needs to be put together somehow. The more that people come out and tell our own stories the more that it encourages others to do the same. It works the same for those in-the-know on government cover-ups and so forth; all it may take is one person coming forward to encourage others and then a snowball affect until the truth (of what they know anyway) comes out. I have a feeling that the whole UFO thing is a mystery to the government too. I think they cover it up and examine UFO crash sites and interrogate witnesses for whatever information they can get, to make what sense of it they can. This is my view on it anyway. On their end is answers as to why they've been covering it up and what facts they can tell us.

My u2u seems buggy too. I guess they're still working on it.

Hi LCH,yes it is a very spiritual place,but then the whole of Africa is,really.There are some very fine,and wise and enlightened people of all races here,yes,South Africa is anazing,even with all its problems,its still has a tangible air of the magickal,and yet also this wholesomeness to it.I like living out in the Bush here,in nature,though it can get boring+a bit depressing at times,specifically in winter.The world seems very "real" here,if you know what I mean-and yet -there is often a mysterious magickal feel to the world out here in nature.
I was adopted by very very strange people,and had an abusive childhood,I did get to meet my biological mother once,and we still speak on the phone once or twice a year.She is of Germanic descent,I think.She was not very forthcoming about her family,or my biological father's identity-in fact asking about him made her highly anxious+agitated,so I let it slide,did'nt want to make her uncomfortable while she was visiting.
I think he may be of British descent,my adoptive mother told me his name+a British ex-friend of mine said that is a classic British first+last name.Its a mystery,when I asked my bio-mom about this name she went into such an anxious state-denied she knew anyone by that name+ said another 1st name,but it really seemed like she made it up on the spot,that is the sense I got.

So that meeting only added to the mystery,but it was nice to meet my bio-mom even if she was very guarded+secretive.

Yes,I cannot remember a time in my life,from early childhood that I have not experienced strange things,or been aware of spirit presences-especially in childhood,my childhood was literally marinaded in the supernatural.always one thing or the other.The old Afrikaner people had a keen awareness of the spiritual,and the supernatural.As was my adoptive mother,and both she+her husband was from Germanic descent also,btw.

My adoptive mother and her younger sister used to experience a lot of strange+inexplicable phenomena also.My "brother" was clairvoyant,in the same way my hubby is.So yeah the strange+inexplicable has been a part of my life for as long as I've been allive here.

Wishing you a good weekend,and to everyone on this thread.

Thank you for all the well wishes. I was actually raised Christian Science. Not that I practice it as a religion, but I do believe whole heartily in mind over matter. lol Just sometimes easier said than done to practice.

I have posted this before on here, but since it was mentioned about seeing a star move, I actually saw a planet move one morning. I was a cab driver in Providence for a few years and always parked in the same place at 4:00 am for the most part. What I thought was Venus was actually Jupiter,, but still I did watch it slide across the sky and disappear. Keep in mind, I have been watching this planet rise ever morning for quite some time.

Anyhow, I made a little video off it trying to show what I saw. It happened way to fast to grab a camera, and frankly I was so dumbstruck, I dont think I would have had the presence of mind to do it even if I had had the time!

Wow. This is pretty much what I've heard from others living there as well! It makes me want to go there someday and see for myself. We are supposed to have originated from Africa and so it does make sense that there are strong spiritual forces there. I've heard others say the same as you, that it's something about the land itself.

I grew up in the country, between the woods and the ocean. I used to go to sleep to the sound of the waves roaring in the distance. It was so soothing and I miss being in nature like that. I'm living in a small, depressed town right now and it's not a very spiritual place to be. Nature is very healing and too much societal structure is spiritually damaging, I find.

It was the same with me too; sensing presences and stuff. I still do. These entities keep their distance and so I don't mind them. I keep a wall up to it. Sometimes I wish I had more courage, but I had some pretty negative experiences which made me weary about getting too close to the spiritual world. I enjoy being connected to it though and feeling the spiritual aura of nature and people, when I disconnect myself from the day-to-day monotony. I was also abused as a child, in my case by teachers and fellow students. I was never abused by anyone outside of school. For me, the public education system was very harmful in a number of ways. For one, it had a very anti-spiritual, institutional structure which felt deeply wrong to me. I indulged a lot in art, daydream and in nature when I was able.

Glad you got to meet you bio-mom. It's nice to have a sense of where we come from.

Have a nice weekend.

Though I do not follow any one particular religion or path, I was raised catholic and for 5 years went to a Catholic school. I'll tell you, when I went to public school the remainder of my school years I was shocked at the difference. In Catholic school, if you so much as spoke badly about someone, made fun of them in any way, the entire class would hear about it and we had long discussions on morality, respect, compassion, honor, etc. We were always encouraged to treat each other with great respect and compassion.

In art class sometimes we were allowed to go outside, sit beneath the tall trees and do our work with the wind in our hair.

So when you mention your public school being anti-spiritual which felt deeply wrong, I can understand completely. In public school, many of the kids ran around beating each other up, carrying knives, being disrespectful and without compassion. It was a madhouse. I believe that if all schools were spiritual in nature, we wouldn't have so much chaos, confusion and craziness that we do today in the world. We are after all spiritual beings. It is important to be nurtured and to be out in nature appreciating each other and the world around us.

Supposedly it has to do with aliens if I'm not mistaken, but my sister has that blood type and is a normal every day person who has never seen a UFO or been abducted.

So, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this: you have a let's describe it as a topical memory, the one most easily accessed, of an event, and your first "knowing" of that event. And then, you may experience two or three other ways, concurrently, the same event took place, but all drastically different? Like, maybe even, six different ways, at least.

Give me some time, I will come up with one the many ways this has happened to me and outline it here. Until I do that, just wanted to outline it, before I posted such a thing, things...LOL.

Hi tetra:-)) I'm curious to find out,what you mentioned the "framework" of in your post!

I have only experienced that in childhood,as having 3 memories of the same event,happening to me-and later in life,having a distinct memory of something,just within personal+family context-but it's like there's a major "glitch"
I was very upset about something-and for once I wanted the comfort of my adoptive mother,she was cold but if I was really upset she could offer some motherly comforting if i caught her in the right mood.

Now my only memory is of sitting crying on a bed in a room in an apartment building I Never lived in-and leaving that building to go to the building of a family friend for a lift to my mother's place.All of which did happen,the family friend took me to my mother's place,it is a factual event.

But years later,the memory surfaced again+i reallised the hi-strange.I never lived in that building-at the time this happened I lived in an apartment building almost right opposite that of the family friend-Not blocks away.There is a personal point of reference for me,a person I was dating,when we were a couple I was living in the apartment block opposite the family friend-in fact I was upset about him in the first place.I never lived in that other apartment-why do I have a distinct memory of crying alone in my room in that other apartment building?When I see these threads about reality "glitches" this episode comes to mind,so weird!
I have another brief memory of walking into that building with a guy I knew after we had dinner, an evening out,as if on my way to my apartment-but I never lived there+neither did he live there,idk What to make of that.This is one of those memories where there's no continuity,its confined to just that brief bit-i don't remember the actual dinner,or what happened after-and I was not drunk.Just walking into that building with my friend+i was talking about problems I had with my eating habits-then nothing.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you want to share,have a good weekend!

Hi Nightstar,when I was growing up public school was a nightmare-the teachers did most of the byllying,namecalling,humiliating themselves-i was a well behaved child and one of the top students in my grade,at least in primary school,grade 1-7.
Yet for some inexplicable reason,it was not the kids being bullying+humiliating me every chance they got,I got along with everyone+they with me-it was the teachers targeting me.Year after year,it only ceased around my entry into 7th grade.
A good weekend to you NightStar.

Wow, I can only imagine what a friendly school would have been like. I remember my parents mentioning the possibility of moving so I could be in one of those schools for artistic kids. I didn't blame them for not moving because our family and friends were here, but that could have made life so much better for me. Public school is not the place for sensitive, artistic/spiritual types. You either adapt or you die lol I refused to adapt because I believed in being true to myself. I'm proud of myself that I did and that I made it through and it certainly made a fighter out of me, but to say it was difficult would be a rather large understatement. It was an extremely long and painful experience.

Hi Night Star,Thank you:-)I got a brand of ulcer meds that works to reduce tha tummy acids,or something,and some sedatives which also help for the ulcer-these I do not take regularly,but after my hours long suffering of grevous pain on Thursday-and moderate pain+discomfort after that,I need to bring down the stress levels for a few days.My blood pressure is back to normal but I seem to have had episodes of hyptension(extremely high blood pressure) in the past 3 days,luckily that seems in check again.
