Over the past couple of years I have become extremely interested in the spiritual and psychic world. My entire life has been marked by some very strange events. To begin with, my mother is a devout Christian and is extremely spiritual, as are some other members of my family. She claims when I was young that I fell face first onto the pavement while being 'walked' by brother. I was probably between 1 and 2 at the time and she says she can still recall a sickening crack as my face hit the driveway followed by my brother who landed on top of me. She expected my face to be a bloody mess but I was perfectly fine, smiling even. She still refers to this as a so-called 'angel' experience to this day.
As a young child, I was extremely quick to pick things up. As soon as I learned to talk I was recorded as asking what the meaning of life was and why there was suffering in the world. Strange stuff for a 2 year old. I learned how to read and write with basically no direction. One day I just could.
Fast forward some years to my teenage years. I had 2 experiences around this time that opened my eyes. The first was when I was in a grocery store with my mother at about the age of 17. I was wandering around by myself when all of a sudden I knew that my science teacher was in the next aisle over. It was the strangest thing because sure enough I checked and he was in fact there. I shrugged it off and continued walking when suddenly I knew my best friend's mother was in the next aisle over. And she was. It was the strangest sensation ever. I thought I might be dreaming or losing my mind. (It just struck me now that these were and are two very enlightened individuals and perhaps I was picking up on them or something).
Next year at the age of 18, I was in a pretty bad car accident where I fell asleep at the wheel. The car slid down a 20-30 foot ravine and hit multiple trees. The car was smashed up everywhere except where my friend and I were sitting (there was even a tree branch sticking through the window behind my head). It was these 2 events which sort of reaffirmed my faith in God, angels and spirituality.
Which brings me to the present day... I am now 25, have graduated university and am working full time while I plan my next move. I do not have outright psychic experiences like the one in the grocery store, but there is definitely something up. In the past year alone I have been called an angel, a 'wizard', even a demon by different people at different times. I don't know what I do specifically but it's almost like I can 'influence' things. Also, my reflexes are extremely fast. I have freaked out customers at my place of work by catching falling things without seemingly noticing I'm doing it. Even bowling with my friends last week, a friend said it looked like I was lighter than air. Some of my friends have said that things always seem happier and lighter when I'm around and they truly mean it, I can tell. I have even had straight male friends say they are 'attracted' to me. And finally, my favourite (:P), my friend's married sister-in-law called me 'celestial' and asked jokingly if I had fallen from outer space when I played a Van Morrison song on guitar once... It was an innocent, drunken comment but still kind of freaked me out. Which reminds me that I also have a sort of knack for shooting stars and the northern lights. I saw about 40 shooting stars in 2012 and the Northern Lights 3 times... But I digress. These kind of comments have really picked up in the past year or so as I have been praying and reading more and more. I try and try to just be as normal as possible but people keep saying these weird things like this all the time. I just try to be nice and listen to people. I have never had an aggressive instinct in my life and often get really depressed for varying periods. Anyway, I don't actually believe I'm an angel or even special or anything. I'm just wondering if anybody out there has experienced something similar because I'm awfully lonely sometimes. I often wonder what I'm doing on this planet where everyone is obsessed with material possessions and their own personal memories. I see a lot of beauty in the world but to me it is unfolding all the time and nobody else seems to notice it! Where can I meet other people like me:P
