Since I have been a small child I have been a quiet soul and have observed the world. One interesting thing I have found is that everyone who I am close to (friends, family) all have a gift that is deep within themselves and I also believe everyone could possibly have something. When I say gifts, I don't mean talents, I mean powers of some sort that no one can explain or understand. These powers could be seeing what happens the next day, signs that follow on major events, being able to feel others emotions and changing the weather with emotions, another power I have witnessed is one of my friends being able to know something before they have been even told.
Ever since I was little I have always thought I have been different to others. I have always seen the world in a different way and I believe that there is an explanation to all of these weird sightings, powers etc.
Now this leads me onto my strange and unexplainable sightings. From a child to now I have noticed subtle signs which has affected me and the world around me, as I have grown up these signs have got bigger and stronger. These signs have frightened me, excited me, depressed me and left me puzzled.
The first ever sign that I realized that made me believe I was different, was when I had to do some media homework which was to annotate and find examples of different DVD covers. When I got some from my collection of DVD's, Heath Ledger's film 'A Knights Tale' was on the top of the pile. That night when I finished I suddenly gazed at Heath Ledger on the front of this DVD cover and I had a bizarre connection with him. After this unexplainable experience I felt slightly confused and carried on with my own business not taking much interest or notice. Now when I woke up the next morning, I switched on the TV and put the news on before I went to school, and to my belief, that was the day Heath Ledger died. For a while I couldn't help thinking if I had payed more interest the night before, I might have been able to stop this, however now I know I was not to know and should not feel guilty as none of my signs have been extremely detailed.
Now the most unbelievable thing I have encountered from my signs and unexplainable things, was not a sign but a day dream on the way to school. In that day dream, I saw myself going into a mock exam and I went to go and find my seat. In that dream one of my friends was next to me, and the dream was so detailed I knew exactly where I was sat in the exam (school hall) when I stopped day dreaming and entered the *real world* I got another strange connection and yet did not think much then. Well it so happens that I did have a mock exam that day, and so when we got told to go into the exam room, I walked in and went and found my seat. Then as I sit down I look to my right and I see my friend sat down on the desk thing next to me, then I became more aware of my presence and remembered the daydream I had earlier that day. I was sat in the exact place, it was the exact time, everything I daydreamed came to reality. This was the most accurate and detailed thing I have ever seen from my surreal signs.
Another sign which I found rather fascinating was one night when I was about to go to sleep. At my house I have a light which changes colour and you are meant to fill it with water and it lives on a shelf above my bed which if it was knocked it would land on top of my bed. So as I was about to go to sleep I looked up and thought, ohhh dear, that would be bad if the light landed on me, then I came to terms that it would probably only happen if an earthquake happened which is unlikely. So anyway I went to sleep, next morning I wake up luckily not to a face full of water! As nothing happened. Well I woke up and went to check my email on yahoo, and on the page it shows the news and I find that there has been an Earthquake in Italy killing lots of people. A few days later I also find out that there was a scientist who predicted this earthquake, however he couldn't prove it so nothing was done to warn those lives which are no longer with us. From this I feel as if this sign wanted me to somehow support this scientist who predicted it and warn people. On the other hand I know there was no idea I could have known this was to happen.
There are so many more stories of these signs that have occurred to me over many years, which have hardly been big and yet some of them have very deep and meaningful for me. There is yet another thing that makes me different which I have also noticed and have found one of my friends also has encountered. Sometimes I can control how life goes. This could be changing a relationship between two people or it could be change of something else. Now this is my perspective on fate, when I think of fate I don't believe its something that is controlling our life ahead, I think of fate as being something we can all control.
When I was young I have always thought there was a task I had to endure. And since I have found people I can relate this too, I feel as if I have got past the first section of my task. And now I need to help others understand more about their gifts (powers). I would like to say I do not believe in God however I do believe that there is something out there guiding each and one of us. In relation to this when speaking to my mum about my signs and situations, she told me a story of how she prayed for God to give her a sign when she was little. Then suddenly 3 drops of blood came from her nose.
From what I have explained I wish I could explain why this happens. However I do not know the answer to that question. But I will keep following these signs and see where it takes me. I hope anyone out there who finds my unusual signs relate to them, make them feel not alone as I believe once again everyone is born with a power. And please feel free to question and even express anything unusual that's happened to you or a gift that you can not explain or understand that's been with you for a while or only just been discovered. I can try and answer any questions you have from what I already see of the world and understand.
Don't be shy to comment, and I will look forward to your comments on this!
