First First of all, I would like to introduce myself, as I am new to this site. It is a relief to find a place where it is possible to learn from other people's psychic experiences as well as expose my own. Ever since I started my "awakening" process, I have been bombarded by messages, and it can often get overwhelming, so it is good to be in touch with people that can relate to all this madness (of a good sort, I hope hehe)
I am a 21 year old college student and everything started in May of this year. I left for college in Tallahassee, Fla., and got an apartment of my own. I believe that the solitude which I experienced over there could have been the catalyst to all the messages that started popping out all over the place. For the sake of making this message as short as possible, I will only share the most shocking of my experiences, as there are too many to tell at once.
The first experience I had which really got my attention and made me stop trying to look the other way happened one night right at that state in which one is neither asleep nor awake; that limbo phase. While at that phase, I heard a female voice that whispered in a very slithering way, it said "lisssssten". Immediately I reacted in shock (but not afraid) and looked around me, then went right back to sleep. I kept those words in mind and started to "listen" more closely, and of course started picking up on more signs as to the purpose/path of my life.
Two weeks later I was back home for the summer. As I am falling asleep on the sofa bed and at that same limbo state, I hear the same exact slithering voice again gently whispering the same word: "lissssten". Perhaps I hadn't really gotten it the first time, who knows? Lol. This time I was not even surprised or shocked.
The next day I experienced the most reaffirming and incredible experience in my life. I call it a miracle. That whole day was magical. It started out with a trip to The Coral Castle, just south of Miami. This is a kind of a fortress built entirely out of tons and tons of coral, all done by a single fragile man who weighed 110 lbs. He managed to erect monoliths of coral without the use of heavy machinery back in the 30's. He only used the earth's magnetic field and the power of the cosmos (he was an astronomer). This trip was important for me, because as the sign at the entrance read: "Here you will witness unusual accomplishment". It helped me believe in the possibility of the impossible.
Later that same night, I got home and invited some friends over for a couple of drinks, and as we sat at the balcony, I started feeling an excruciating feeling of anguish in my chest. I felt as If I had to get up and search for something. I immediately got up and started searching almost magnetically through the apartment for whatever I needed to find. After a few minutes I approached the coffee table which sat at the center of the living room. It had a pillow on top of it, and as soon as I removed the pillow I found a beautiful red stone laying right in the middle of the table. I grabbed it and without even thinking about it I took it to my chest, and it gave me a feeling of peace which I had rarely experienced before. I believe I felt God for the first time, simply because I had no place for doubt any more. Something so concise had happened which was not possible or explainable, something that slapped the doubt out of me.
After purchasing a book of stones I found out that the stone is a 50/50 mix of Petrified Wood and Carnelian (I knew absolutely nothing about stones). I read what these stones were used for and associated with and I could not have picked more appropriate ones for myself.
These events have changed my life and shifted my paradigm. I lost complete interest in my study of International Relations (my college major), which suddenly seemed so boring and futile to me. Instead I have decided to pursue further knowledge in the field which I can only call "the mysteries of the universe" and "the possibility of the impossible".
I am following my heart for the first time in my life, and also making my dreams come true. And that is what I believe the voices (which I haven't heard again) meant. To listen to my heart and act on what my soul desires. As part of this, I am leaving on a trip through Asia next month. I strongly believe that this trip is a big part of my development, as I have always been extremely attracted to that continent, especially to Mongolia, which I particularly think has something in store for me.
This is a very compressed (and yet long) summary of my crazy journey which I feel is only beginning. I thank you very much for your time taken to read through this, and I am eager to read more from your experiences and also share more of mine as they unfold. And of course, please share with me any similar experiences! I would greatly appreciate it.
