I Feel As If I'm Meant To Do Something Great

Everyday for months on end now I feel as if I'm meant to do more in this life then what I'm doing now. As I sit and think the feeling grows over whelming. I get this annxious feeling like I need to be out there doing it but how can you do something that you don't even know what it is. I've only ever told one person about these feelings because I'm afriad to be judged and called a freak or a fake. Call it delusions of granduer or whatever I know what I feel. The one person I've ever told said that he thought I'm meant to be a leader. I have the confidence of dirt. I just wanted to see if any one was like me or could give me some answers cause I can't find any.

Finally i found other that share the same feeling as i do, :( every day i wake up feeling like i am missing something in my life, that i was meant for something greater than what i am atm beyond earth it self. At least once a week i'll know what exactly is going to happen and it feels like i relived that moment in the past.Then there are days where i feel like we as human race do not belong to this planet that we are meant to be out there. meant for bigger things , so i i take my kids with me and watch stars, for hours at a time, then out of nowhere i feel better and with hope that its going to happen soon and ill find my path to greatness and escape this prison so called our home ( earth!!)

I FEEL THIS WAY ALSO, LIKE I AM SUPPOSED TO BE DOING SOMETHING, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS. MY SCARIEST THOUGHT IS THAT I AM REPEATING LIFE AND I EITHER NEED TO LEARN SOMETHING I DIDN'T LEARN PREVIOUSLY OR I NEED TO CORRECT WHAT I DID DO. MY LIFE IS AT A STAND STILL AND NOTHING SEEMS AS IMPORTANT AS THIS FEELING.

Wow, it feels good to connect with people that feel the same way I do, it's rare and most people don't understand, they look at you like you're crazy! It's been quite the journey finding my life's calling, I can feel it and I keep searching, lately I feel that I'm getting further away though, way off course! I'm doing all I can to get back in alignment, I feel like I've been fighting in a UFC fight with the daylights kicked out of me lol!

I am in awe right now... Like so many others that have commented here, I went to Google to try and figure out what this feeling is.. And I found this page. And like so many others, I created an account just so I could comment. I am so very thankful that I found it because I was beginning to feel like I am just insane. I have felt this way my whole life... Ever since I was a little girl I always felt like I was meant for something greater.. Supernatural even. For a long time I shrugged it off, thinking everyone probly feels that way. It came and went over the years.. In high school I even felt like I was making some progress with it. I became much more attuned to my spiritual self and things started happening... Things I can't explain. But I got scared and backed out as much as I could and over the years suppressed all of the strange feelings that would come about. And after a while it stopped happening all together. The feelings are back now but I have no idea how to explore them. Now I would give anything to get back to where I was. It is such an annoying feeling... Feeling like I need to do something but not knowing what it is. Someone in this thread worded it perfectly.. "Its as if a higher level of thinking or being is knocking at my door, but I can not find the key to let it in" .. "I am homesick for a place that as far as I know does not exist" .. Idk... It drives me crazy and I don't know what to do about it. I just wish there was someone I could talk to about it that actually knows what this is and can lead me along the right path.. But the chances of that are slim to none because I don't even talk to anyone about this. I have terrible social anxiety so I don't have many friends, and the few I do have I don't tell about it because I just feel like I'm freaking nuts. Bleh. Sorry this is so long, it's just nice to finally get some of this out. I'm just glad to know I'm not alone with this strange "feeling"

I could have written your response myself which is why I am responding to your reply. WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT? How do we get from here to where-ever. I am so frustrated with it all. Are you my "twin"? I say that in jest but when I re-read your post, I was stunned at the similarities.

I'm so glad to hear you feel the same! Knowing you're not alone in this really helps a lot... I am not really sure what to do about any of this still... But I've gotta say, I have recently found something that has really been helping me a lot. Go to YouTube and search for Spirit Science. They have tons of informational videos, but start at number one and work your way up.. I still don't really know what I'm doing with all this, but I've gotta say, watching those makes me feel like I'm in the right track 😊 I hope it helps you too!

Explore this for a minute...there's no distance between "here" and "wherever". We can only ever be present. The concept of then is an illusion and the believe in it is precisely why we feel like there's a "next move" to make. If we always think there's one more step will ever believe that wevery gotten anywhere? Just choose, now, to live that fullest life. Then choose it again, again, and again, as often as it occurs to you. Choosing begets choosing. You can find it right now :)

Nevado, you are far from alone! It's always nice to see others waking up...I'm facing a big fear standing between myself and a huge spiritual shift in consciousness. I'm sure if you wanted to explain what you experience that caused you to back out I'd be glad to explore it with you. Consciousness it totally banging your on your door (and by that I mean sitting patiently waiting for you to realize it's right there, where it's been all along) and the place you're homesick for sounds like it's the same as me and you're right, it doesn't exist yet. It's up to us to break through that fear, heed our calling, and help our fellows get free too so our world DOES become that place we feel we're meant to be. Namaste, warrior.

Wow.. What a heart warming response πŸ’“ thank you for that. It's so wonderful to hear words of encouragement from someone on a similar path. There is so much to learn and take in in this.. "Ascension" process.. And I haven't really had anyone to talk to about it all. I would love to be able to talk about what I experienced in the past that made me back out.. But to be honest, I don't remember much. For some reason my memory put a big Block there and I can't remember the details. But I am trying.. Slowly but surely I'm trying to figure out how to unlock these peices of my past, get back to there and hopefully go far further than I ever imagined.

The thing is in my case the definition of "great" comes to very extreme measures. I feel like I was born to do impossible things which I can't do. For instance, fixing global warming. What type of "impossible" does my brain not get. If it's impossible CLEARLY there are reasons why. Maybe we can't handcraft elements. Maybe because we don't have the electricity. Perhaps there are evil men that LITERALLY want to watch the whole world burn. If top notch scientists can't do it what makes it so I can? And this is only one of the things my brain insists me on doing. It's a pain on the *** having these types of aspirations and not being able to stop having them. It's making my life difficult and it's not letting me experience the things I should be experiencing at the age of 13(yeah I'm only 13 and I am having these type of thoughts). Please give some sort of guidance as to how to counter this bother.

I have a challenge for all of you who feel you should, could or will do big things. First of all it is instilled in EVERY one of us to be great. Sometimes that means helping someone through a difficult time. To save even one life is GREAT. We have started Nutritious Response Inc. - If you want to "Do Something Great" join with us. no matter what your gift is it can be used to help here or anywhere in the world. Our direct Mission is to "Address Food Insecurities" where ever they are, but so much more can be done with a diverse set of talents. Contact me at www.nutritiousresponse.org

I think everyone here should change the world for the best. Fix this broken unfair system we forced to live by, it really sucks for most of the world.

I feel like im drowning in a pool of anxiety but not depression more like a feeling of being claustrophobic. Its getting worse, im 18 and a male. I feel like im meant for greatness but i dont know what im supposed to do? If someone is out there, please help because i dont want to live this life not doing something meaningful. I want to be great.

You already ARE great! The BEING part is simply living your life and looking for the doors that are opening before you.

I too have had this feeling all of my life and I have had my calling.I had a near death experience and was sent back ten years ago.even though since then I have had experience s where I have seen and had spirit guides around me and no I'm not scared.in fact I wanted to know who I was that these things were taking place.well,I write everything down and today I know I an ready ,because I gave my answers. I am to do work for God and soon I will be shown the way to where

I feel the same way. Always feel like the regular life is just not quite what i was meant for me to do. What if that is a sign your mind telling you to branch out and if you keep searching eventually you can find what you were meant for. Experience is something i yearn for and it seems like i can calm my thinking and relax a little more when i am trying something new. Life is calling and i feel its pull everyday.

Preaching to the choir. Here we are in this life, on this earth and do not know what to . I as well feel like I should be doing something but I do not know what it is. I have no purpose, no legend, no story. Why me is what I ask. Or why not me. A small cog in the great machine of life.

hi, i really feel the same i know i was born to do something different but dont know what, i know i am not same as everyone else is, but dont know how.i sometimes think i dont belong to this world. i feel as if there are some secrets which i need to uncover.i feel sometimes i have to leave this planet ,this is not meant for me i am a wrong person at a wrong place...

Felt like that before, sort of a claustrophobic type of feeling when not progressing. not on the same page with anybody I know.

Me to i used to think about it before but not as much . I remember my biology teacher telling me that she's going to hear about me someday thats when i started thinking and got this urge to do and be some great and not just another face in the crowed

Please don't feel too intimidated to read this long block of text and stop; I really want someone to talk to. I've always been a perfectionist. Since I was young I wanted to be the greatest version of myself, smart, handsome, and strong (both mentally and physically). I was good at sports, good in school, and good with my peers. But as I've gotten older I've felt myself losing these traits. First, it was my confidence. I began to lose that in middle school when I transferred to a new school. Then it was my skill at sports, as I began to get lazy and stopped playing. And now it's my drive to do well in school. I feel like I'm losing myself and my abilities. The driven child I once was feels like it's disappearing. Maybe this is a good thing and I'm finally relaxing and "not being so hard on myself," as my therapist says. But it doesn't feel so. It's always in the back of my mind. I can never feel relaxed or happy with myself. I feel like societies trying to make me feel as if settling for average is okay. But I know it's NOT. I know I need to do something important. But somethings holding me back. I hope people read this and comment below. I would love to have a discussion about these feelings.

I went through the same exact things. I completely understand how you feel. Going from excellent in everything you touch to being close to average sucks. But It will change. Always remind yourself how good you were when you were a kid. That helped me get through this and now I excel in everything I do. I suggest you read this book 'how to love' by thich naht hanh. I read this couple of days ago. I feel like I am a better version of myself. Remember to do an excellent job in everything you do. That will do it.

Thanks, I'll check it out. I'm trying to find myself in reading, hopefully books like this help me. If you have anymore that you feel like changed your outlook on life let me know.

My name is Matthew, 26 years old, father of one and a private security contractor. I feel like I was meant to do something, just like may of you. I've felt this way from along time. I'm certain there are a great many people that feel the same, but like you, I feel different. As of last night the anxiety and will truly became overwhelming. I don't really know how to explain it. I just feel like I was meant to do something. The man I am today and what I do just feels off, it feels wrong. Ultimately I feel like I'm at a dead end and I know this urge or feeling is only getting stronger. I'm sure I sound "unstable" to some and maybe I am, but I doubt it. Today I googled how I felt and it led me to this page, I made an account just to reply like many others... for whatever it's worth, I just felt like I should write this.

That's crazy ... Lol that just happen to me I just google what I felt and it bought me to this page as wel . It's good to know I wasn't the only one feeling what I felt at the exact time . And yeah I just created a account to reply to your comment

Write things down, calm yourself by meditation, listen and hear what you are given and you will be shown the way

Your not alone, I also feel like that but what is it I was meant to do. I don't know just wish it would just happen

I literally typed in Google, "I know i will be something great" and this popped up. God gave me many many talents, the creativity and ambition to excell at anything I put my mind to since grade school. Skateboarding, snowboarding, guitar and drums were the way i dealt with my minor adhd. High school I lead the high life, really excelling and constantly building at those 4 main talents, and it worked. That gave me a million friends.. around grade 10 got addicted to cigarettes, that got rid of all adhd, I would never say stupid annoying **** anymore.. smoked weed almost every day and got drunk with friends every Friday night. This era brought on some depression. Since high school I became a quiet, anxious and overthinking person. Almost felt like, ive seen it all... lived all the experiences.. Spent a year working in a machine shop, hated my life, wound up poor AF between every paycheck. I quit smoking weed since then, best thing ever for my mind. Now I am 3 months in at pretty much a dream job, making a fair bit... but i just keep thinking, nobody should be able to buy my time... it's worth much more than that, why do I not run my own business, get all the profits from my hard work. I never really thought of myself as a leader, just good at **** I put my mind to. I've started writing all the sick ideas that float by in a little book, helps clear my distracted mind at work and focus on what I need to do. In that journal is descriptions of how i will be running my own 3d printing business and my life is going to be fulfilled; never getting up early, finally having my own pomski (dog) to chill with as I work from home all day.. yes that's my paradise. As for now, I know i need to save up to get there and I'm going to have to work for someone else at least a while longer until I achieve my goals!

its the first time that i search on google if someone feel like that too and im truly happy that im not the only one, always when i feel like that i told myself that i'm overacting because probably everyone on earth feel like that at some moment of their life and the whole "im the chosen one thing" is stupid and its gonna pass, but its been so long, and i understand that i feel like that since not even 2 years (im 14), when i was a child everyone thought i was hyperactive, i could make friends easily, i was hyper confident about myself and stuff, but i know that i was more mature than the others kids because i understand things about like an exemple life that 6 years old dont understand, anyway i dont know if everyone is like that too but i always search for a meaning like, what on earth as happened with people with the same name/last name as me, same astrologic sign, same origins, stuff like that and at first i thought i was just curious but now i really dont know what to thinks about myself, sometime i even just dont move and look at my hand to see if something crazy is gonna happened like some magic power are gonna show up or i just stay immobile and try to hear everything around me like im gonna hear something special (god i feel ashamed to said that lmao), and at a moment i ask myself if i have some mental problem because, not everyone do that obviously, i never told anyone because i'm scared people thinks im like, crazy, i dont know if the fact that i said that make it false but ive never was super self centered and stuff, basically its the contrary so yeah, i hope one day it'll pass if nothing is really predict for me because the constant feeling of me missing something important is annoying af

i felt exactly the same as you at your age. i think its good to feel weird like that. to feel like you can do magic or can percieve everything or everyone. highlighting your senses to the world is a good thing. percieve as much as you can until you can't anymore and then have a break. keep going, youre doing fine and are not as weird as you think you are. i felt exactly the same as you, im now 22 and feel similiar all the time. all you've got to do is just keep going.

I understand how you feel. I'm currently 15, but I was 14 when you posted this. And your close, so close. In my opinion, the same name and astrological sign stuff, won't get you anywhere. Names are just terms handed out so people can distinguish other people from each other. The signs are just there so people can feel like there's a plan, something to look forward to in their day. That sort of thing has been happening since the dawn of humanity. And, I guess, in a way we are also doing the same thing. Some of us probably are, and maybe, some of us are really going to do something great. But isn't that the question? 'To be, or not to be.'? All of this said, my one piece of advise, for you, or anyone reading this. Is that in order to know where you fit in, in the world, you must first understand the world. Whats the point in fitting into the puzzle, if you don't know what image is printed on it? So I implore you all, to just stop, even if it's just for a second. Stop trying to run faster than your feet can take you, let go of your friends, your social life, the pressure to pay the bills. Just let it all fall away for a moment, and look, REALLY look. Look at the trees, the buildings, the seemingly endless supply of concrete, look at humanity. And ask your self; Why? How? and When? Three simple questions, that almost nobody uses when looking at their surroundings. Even if it's the tinniest, most seemingly unimportant thing, it could have the biggest question attached. And an even bigger answer.

β€œEver wonder how it would have been to come up with the first word? It may as well have been just a grunt from the start. Until the picture was added to the sound. And it no longer was just a grunt and an object, suddenly it was a tree. All it takes is that extra piece, and suddenly your whole perspective can change. Too bad hardly anyone dares to look at the tree, and not just hear the grunt.” -Ages Past

I completely understand.
I don't have answers because I'm looking for them too, but I sincerely hope you've found your meaning.
The only advice I can give to you, to myself and to others like you and me, is to keep doing things, keep failing and let the cycle spin until you've found what you are meant to do.
You'll know because it's where you feel truly awake and complete, exhausted yet complete.
Wishing you luck,
D

I have the same feeling. I have always been sort of materialistic and now that I am 18 and looking at my life and looking at these college bills i cant help but think.. what am I doing? Our whole society only cares about getting more and more money.. for what ? to buy more stuff? These things will not make us happy. People in other countries do not have anything compared to what we have.. I keep feeling like I want to be able to connect with the world and help others.. not for a status or even for a pat on the back.. i want to help others and understand the meaning of life, i want to see it. I hope to get out of this materialistic society.

Wow so True!

I feel you :)

Too true. Money=Power=Survival. That, right there, is the equation to humanity. That's it. Many spend their lives looking for a greater purpose of humanity, or reason for what humanity does what it does. My advice for you, is to get your opinions out there. Let the world know how you feel. So many feel the way you do, but many don't know what to do with that knowledge. Try taking a risk, to do what you feel is right, no matter how daunting it may look. 'Cause the way I see it, you could either continue like you are, and always have this feeling in the back of your mind. Or risk losing it all, in order to act on how you feel. Or you could even do something as write little 'quotes', well, really there like little tidbits of wisdom. Print them off, and hang them up in public places so people can see them. That's what i'm going to do. Little things like this:
β€œSo many words uttered, some with hardly any meaning. Some may have held the key to the universe. Too bad nobody stopped to listen.” -Ages Past
Or,
"Humans have the ability to see ahead, but lack the conviction to do anything about it, until it is almost upon them.” -Ages Past
Ultimately, it's up to you, on how big of an impact you leave on this life, and what kind of impact that will be.

man....do I know what you're talking about..

There are two options.
1. You are psychologically instable.
2. You are an Indigo Soul.

Either way I can help you.
Psychology uni diploma here. And Indigo myself.
Message me.

I googled how I felt and it brought me here I made an account just to reply. I would like to think I'm an indigo soul. When I was in school, we would have lockdown tests I would imagine someone come in and me saving the day. When I got to high school mostly my 11th and 12th grades when they would ask us to start thing about college and Careers and stuff like that I never really figured it out. Maybe because I watched cartoons I always want to be a hero or the chosen one/main character. Now I'm 19 and a male by the way, I feel like I have a greater purpose in life. Sometimes I feel like I have no purpose and I'm looking for a purpose. I've had a different life compared to most people so maybe that's the reason but I don't know. So yea can someone tell me if I'm crazy?

No you are not crazy.
But I can't give my opinion without more details.
How are you different than other people?
How do you think you'd be the right person to do great things in this world?

I was born in Mexico in a small village where not many people have opportunities. I came to the us when I was 6 my family and I were able to come legally which not many people can say the did and I have grown roots here which has allowed many opportunities to open up for me, that's why I feel like God wouldn't have brought me all the way here to one if not the best county in the world, and given me opportunities and knowledge of I wasn't meant for greatness. I just think because of my up bringing I see the world and people differently.

I didn't mean to ask what is different in your life compared to other people.
I mean to ask what is different about you.
Do you have any unusual ability? or any special insight of the world?

many people are born in the u.s, or could migrate to the u.s and they still don't save the world.

I need to know about who you are as a person. how you are different

Crazy stuff to look at


Smart cow syndrome

I believe it is where only one cow out of a group figures out a simple solution. And every otber cow cow will replicate it. For its easy way. That does not mean there is not a better way of doing things. Smart *** cow!!!! Great way if thinking not many do!

I have heard the same response is it aboost response i know i can run anything life is stupid to follow directions i know a better way

Im so happy that im not the only person who feels this. Im 15 and ive always ever since i could remember, have had this feeling that there was just something big and great that i was meant to do or be. When i was little i was a good leader and everyone loved to be around me my teachers would even call home or give me there number when they found out i was moving to another school. I was always a curious and spontanious child but, as i got older and the crayons they gave us were replaced with textbooks and it felt like every chance i got to be myself was being pushed out or changed and i didnt even realize it. Since 5th grade ive been mildly dreppressed and really just bipolar and i have 0 confidence but, lately ive been noticing things. Ive noticed that the way i think and feel are feelings and thoughts that people dont usually feel. I feel like i was born to do something great like my destiny or something? I cant explain it and it hurts that i cant. But i know that theres something wonderful i am supposed to do or be and i want to find it. I dont want to lose this feeling this originality.. I dont want to be come the 99% percent... I realize im part of that 1%. Theres something about me, and all of u that feel this way, theres something we're meant to do. Dont let society block this out dont let it dismiss this feeling because the people that have the gift of whatever this is, are the people that dont think like everyone else we dont feel like everyone else. And that may mean leaving behind all of those other 99% that society has brainwashed. We're that 1%.

JADA. I too am 15 years old and I have this feeling. It's intensifying and I thought I was going crazy. Everything you wrote in this paragraph, I can relate to. I want to cry from happiness because ive found someone like me. I dont know if you will get this, but if you do add me on Facebook so we can talk about it more? My name is MJ Peterson. This helped me out. Thank you.

Honestly I have the same exact feeling and I can't explain it I feel like I'm meant to do something very big and important but it hurts in a way not knowing what it is I'm just glad I'm not the only one

Same. Seriously though. Search through jobs! Look at so many types of roles out there & maybe if your lucky like me you will see something that goes... "I was born to do that"... Luckily for me I had this feeling for composing music. (currently studying) Don't hold back man.

I think we are engligtened and we have great minds that are capable of opening beyond that of most people around us. It really is a gift.

I feel just like you but I can read people and know what they are thinking by using a spence that I naturally have I know when something bad is goin to happen I can read almost anyone when I try and I gather intel on like where everything is and I can see without lookin as in I know when people look and what direction they are looking from without seeing them how do I know this because wen I check they are and other people have seen it even when I'm not looking in the direction and I answer people before they say it I know I sound a freak but why can I do this and be no where in life I have nothing really apart from my wife and children my life is quite poor and I feel more worthy for a greater good ? Help me too asha

I have always had this gift as well... I lead a poor lifestyle always have. I have a family (wife and daughter). Have you ever looked deeper into why you have this ability?

I meant thedifferentones.xobor.de, sorry lol

I....am astonished to see that there are others like myself. I'm sixteen, and I was diagnosed with mild depression almost 2 years ago. I've had this feeling practically all my life, as far as I can tell. At first, when I learned of my depression, I dissmissed the feeling as a delusion of grandeur. It eventually faded away, but last night, after watching a movie, and listening to some music, this feeling lit up again, like a fire in my stomach. It was 2:04 in the morning when i went to sleep, because this feeling literally kept me up for hours. I felt this....sort of immense energy, and I immediately felt like something greater than me was calling out to me. It dissapeared as quickly as it came, but I couldn't shake the feeling, and I couldn't sleep. So yeah. I decided to look this up, just to be sure that I wasn't alone and that this isn't a delusion I'm feeling.

i have the same type of feeling, i listen to songs and watch movies like you do and i get this weird overcoming feeling. And like you i just have this sudden over whelming feel of complete and total excitement and energy it's unbelievable. It's like some High Dimensional being is telling me something, or asking me something. Watching movies like Prometheus and listening to songs like "I lived"-(One Republic) makes me want to go out and explore space, it makes me feel like i am one with this universe and nature. It's weird, it's just that i can't explain it.

Yeah, it feels kinda weird sometimes. I have an innate fascination with outer space, and I don't know why. Have you checked out the forum I posted? You should, and tell others about it too, since there is currently no one else viewing it. I have a really strong hunch that those of us who feel this was should stick together. In case you didn't get it, it's thedifferentones.xobor.de.

I know what you mean when I was younger I read about the illusions of grandeur and just thought maybe it was that but the last few years it has taken hold of me hard and I can't shake it is getting more intense

honestly i create an account for experience project because of this particular discussion which i found randomly. i had this 'feeling' since i was teenager but i start to really notice and curious about this feeling since almost 3 years ago(btw im 21) and it becomes more and more frustrating my mind. it feels like im going crazy. i realize that im different from most of people that i've met, im arguing a lot (in my head and heart) about social condition, about people, like there is something 'wrong', something 'less', like there is something i should do, but i really really dont know what it is and i dont know how to know what i want to do, it's like im lost on my own mind and my own heart. i tend to have difficulties about making decisions in my life because my head and my heart always like going crashing each other.
i dont know how i got this feeling, suddenly i realize that i have this feeling for a long time, and it's just like i didnt think, it's like, i know that im different (i dont want to say 'special', its kinda wrong). and now i found bunch of people who have exactly the SAME PATTERN with my life, my feelings about being different, and all that kind of things. i actually shocked that i found you guys, its interesting, make me want to know more and more.
strangely i often to think this feelings in some kind of supernatural ways, which i never experienced (supernatural activities) even once in my entire life. but i lived among people who does (believe it or not), and that includes MY OWN FATHER.
i want to suggest you guys to search and learn more about your family stories, learn more about where did you really come from.
actually i have sooo much to talk about but im not really good at writing like this, if there anyone who want to talk about it more, im really glad if you contact me. thanks for letting me sharing, im sorry if its not that interesting, hope you guys can find your own answers in the right time! peace~

I'm gonna reply to all of you on this thread in the same fashion, so that you get the notif. Check out thedifferentones.xobor.de, and help me build a community of those who feel the same way as us. If you have any questions, you can contact me at ndbernav@gmail.com. Thx for listening.

I joined here for the same reason and I agree with all that you said :)

I am in a similar situation. I have this constant nagging feeling as if i am wasting time. As if there is something I should be doing where my talents and intellect will be unlocked and the great things I am meant for will come to light. It drives me crazy when I get feelings of deja vu because to me it feels so vivid. Not like most people describe. I honestly feel as if there is something meant for me in this universe but I just don't have the tools or intelligence to figure it out. At times I feel so close to getting an answer then as soon as it is there it is gone, almost like trying to continue a dream as I wake. I feel like there is something inside of me screaming to be let out and if only I could figure out how this feeling would dissipate. Strange things happen to me usually in waves or patterns over lengths of time. For example i will see the same numbers repeated over and over. Sometimes i will unexpectedly look at my watch or a clock even though I have no appointments or need to be anywhere at any particular time but I will look at the exact time every 12 hours to the minute even waking from a deep sleep. This will happen for days or weeks at a time then it will stop but again weeks later it will start again. Also i have the ability to fix just about anything without ever having been taught or having any knowledge of what I am repairing, or the ability to theorize complex highly abstract hypothesis to great extent with people who hold knowledge in particular fields though again having no knowledge of the subject, (there are more examples but I feel as if i am rambling). I don't talk to people about this in fear of misinterpretation. I don't doubt there are more people who feel as I do. It's as if a higher level of thinking or being is knocking at my door but I can not find the key to let it in. The best way to describe the feeling is, I am homesick for a place that as far as I know does not exist. Well I've said my piece let's see who (if anyone) can relate.

I too share some of ur emotions the wanting to and feeling the need if letting out your true destiny but not having the key to open the door it's truly frustrating and also emotional it really feels to me like a kick in the mouth because everyone else is truly ignorant to the high sences and emotions felt and the higher case of intelligence that people are not on I don't know if intelligence is the word jus a higher plaine

I know exactly what you are saying. The time thing, just being able to reach out and know an answer about something that I know nothing about, and I don't mean in a psychic way it's just the answers come to me when someone asks me a question. And I know what you mean by not wanting to tell people. It's interesting we are around the same age because I've noticed it's mostly younger people answering to this

made this account just to tell you that I'm exactly the same way, it's as if I try to talk to anyone I'm having to dumb it down or there just completely lost all together and call me stupid. I've been this way as far back as I can remember, and my mom is a preacher..ever since I was little she's told me I was ment to do great things, naturally I told her she was crazy but couldn't shake the feeling that I felt the same as she had said, I went to church with her one day and a man whom turned out was actually a bishop (something good I'm guessing?) Was visiting and preaching, as I entered the door he looks at me shakes my hand and said "what's your name" I said "Mathew" he said "Humm Mathew....yea I haven't heard that name in a long time, that's a wonderful name..your destined to do great things Mathew" naturally I said "yea you been talking to my mom" thinking he went to that church often and mom has told him stories, but actually she had never met this man, and that night something crazy happened to me, like god grabbed me or something, I don't even know what to think, I mean I've always believed in god but I'm no holy roller or anything, like what makes me so special, what's going on what is this great thing and this longing for something more...I feel like all the others here, like I don't belong, like I'm ment for something greater

Same here and I still haven't figured what I'm supposed to be doing with my life. Lol! Though, I feel like I'm in the wrong path or something.

I feel like that all the time like I meant for something bigger than what people think I should be. I always told my parents I wanted to be a lawyer when I really think I think I should have a more meaningful life not saying that my life isn't meaningful it's just that I know that I meant for something bigger I just don't know how to get their. In afraid to tell anyone because of judgement. That why I want to try my best to become something bigger than what people think I should be and show off what I can do. If u still think you are meant for something bigger don't tell anyone and try to make it happen yourself even if your too young to make any of those thing happen or too old to have your full on dreams come true make it happen yourself there is always a way to become something bigger. 😁😁😁😁

And also when it feels pointless then you really want it or you figured it's just pointless. I've felt this way since I was a a little one in pigtails....um I think I used that right πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ is that what it is pigtails. Anyways if I want it then do it yourself don't let anyone help you unless you know that person knows people who can make you bigger and trust no one but yourself. I know o sound like a paranoid person but I do actually trust someone and that's my boy(dog) Harley 😁

I came across this post when I was browsing the web. I thought it was interesting there are so many responses. But it is not that surprising really - the truth is every single human on this planet has this feeling. Every single one. We are all the star of our own movie.

The issue is that not all people actually act on this feeling. Don't feel like you are meant to do big things. Do big things ;)

I have the same feeling for a few years now. And it's killing me! (It's like an ache you can't scratch) It feels like this hole in my heart that I need to fill with something but I don't know what. And just today I was searching the internet hoping to find the answer and then coming across this. Reading that I'm not the only one who feels that way. It really make me feel less insane.

I like that description of the feeling fits it perfectly. I came across this the same way lol hoping to find something

I often feel like everything i do is pointless and wrong.. I feel like I need to go somewhere but i do know where.. and this feeling grove strong and im scared that im never going to found out what it means

Yeah all or many people have this feeling I always want to leave my place and go to mother but don't know where to start. But don't I bet your also thinking you don't know what my life is like and what I've been through but in many people's mind they have had the worst life in the world. Off topic sorry but just stay where you are and live their make your dreams or life achievements happen or use some people to get to it I know this seams so low but it's how people get what they want. And do you listen to music 24hours a day brocade I do and I can't stop😁😁

I feel the exact same way! I'm 17 and I feel like I am meant to BE something bigger then what I am. When I think about it it makes me think of something in the supernatural sense. I am not sure if it's just because I have an interest in supernatural novel that has diluted my feelings or not but I really feel like i am not supposed to be... I feel like I'm crazy..

Your not crazy I feel the same way , I feel that there are certain people in the world that are different and unique but we don't know what to do about it I always have weird visions of me saving the world

Hello,
My name is Edward Waldron. I'm twenty six years old and single father of two children. Also possess a bachelors degree in science( mainly in design). I have also have this feeling to this day and into the past of earliest memories. From what I can perceive and have read and complied. All information taken strictly as opinion in order to maintain the truth of what I'm supposed to do and expected there might be more of the like. From the gathering I have only come up with the first part of this riddle in our heads. Which is, we are all connected, some more than others. With each other and the cosmic energy of the universe. It is in my belief that the balance of the universe has been thrown off. So there will be a cleansing of sorts and there are a select few of mankind will know of this and are already prepared. It's the wait that makes it seem like your going mad. Like the feeling of knowing you are going to the zoo as a kid but have wait. Because it wasn't time yet and the park was closed. Those are my views, on another note I get random people that tell me their deep secrets and what they hide behind a mask. Have also been told of a past life and that I was an indigo. Hope this helps you and all others who seek the truth. Have a wonderful day.

One more thing I forgot in my post and hopefully someone replies :) but I feel like lately it's been getting more intense, and its probably felt like this for the past year idk just wondering if anyone else gets that feeling

I am completely new to this "experience project". In fact, I rarely get on blogs and chat rooms. I am 41 years old and have also felt this way for as long as I remember. Even back in high school, I felt like i was destined to do great things. Yet, even at 41, I am nowhere near accomplishing anything that makes me feel truly fulfilled in life. I still don't even have a career that I am proud of. Sure, i have a job, but it is unfulfilling, as are most "jobs". I don't even tell people what i do because it is so boring and insignificant. I also feel like i have let down myself because i have not accomplished anything significant to be proud of. I see people that I always thought I was smarter than and had more going for me than them doing seriously well in life, whether they have a high paying career or are doing what they love and are meant to be doing. It fills me up with jealousy because I am so far away from where I thought I would be in life. This empty feeling nags at me more every day because I know the clock is ticking and the battle to succeed is becoming more uphill the more time drags on. I wish I knew what my true purpose is, as a person who is living a life of discontent.

I feel the same way

So how do you find your passion and make it compatible with your goals?

I'm still looking I try a lil of this and a lil of that but so far I haven't found it and I just feel like I'm wasting my time and the older I get the worst it gets

It's so amazing to see that other people feel this way. I've always wanted to ask people if they ever felt like this but it is truly hard to explain. I'm 31 and as long as I can remember I've always felt this way. I'm always trying to figure out what makes me feel like this. I know I'm not crazy but it's a feeling I can't shake. Hopefully one day I'll figure it out :)

I feel the same and people are just attracted toward me. Like strangers come up to me and tell me im different and going to do somethin great and they can sense it. But also alot of messed up people like murders and people with anger problems and excons cause they just say i feel i can trust you and your nice and can help me.

I couldn't agree more with everyone that responded. It's an unexplainable feeling. It's like I come to work, and you know, act normal, (one of my skills, I can fit in to almost any social situation). I just watch everyone, and wonder how they're so satisfied with such simplicity, every once in a while I kinda wish I had that, but then it fades, as my mind wanders, and I know I'll never be able to accept such simplicity as my reality, and it tears me up inside that in all actuality...it is

Friend,
I am only 14 as I write this response, and I feel the exact same. I have this nagging feeling that somebody's gonna dig themself, and others, into a massive hole, and my brains, logic, and skills are gonna be what saves them, whoever they may be. I just feel like there's more...
Well, maybe I just play too many video games. I have a family, friends, even a girlfriend, yet I feel like I'm just waiting for the big shoe to drop. So, I know that feel. I just hope I- no, I hope that all of us aren't wrong, that we will do something great for everybody.

Hi there! I have this exact feeling every day, I am only 17 but I have this feeling every day and I have done for about 7/8 years. I am always made the leader of the group in projects, I captain the teams I'm in and generally I lead. I know I am no different to every one else but I feel as if I'm meant to do something great just like all of you guys! I just don't know what...HSP (highly sensitive person) is an extremely interesting concept and when I go to Uni, I'm doing psychology in an attempt to find out if I can find out why I (and all you guys) have this feeling.

I am so so glad I'm not alone!

Idk about you but I am extremely creative (can write novels and entire plays), very good with people and make friends with anyone I try to but I struggle with things like maths and things that require a lot of memory. I hate loud noises and I notice things in my surrounding environment that none of my other peers seem to. I live by a main road which makes studying nigh-on impossible due to the fact that I constantly hear noise e.g. birdsong, cars and people. In class I will always hear noises that no one else seems to such as paper rustling, making my friends joke I have ADHD due to the fact that I'm always looking around and unfocused.

I hate confiding to society's norms because I, like you, know I'm destined for something more than the rat race and I think together we can figure it out. If you feel the same as me, reply or drop a message.

I have ADHD and feel a lot of the same things you feel thats pretty cool. You couldn't have put it more spot on "I hate confiding to society's norms because I, like you, know I'm destined for something more than the rat race."

I know this was years ago but it's nice to see some comments from this year. I'm 19, and especially recently I've had a stronger urge to do more. Knowing there are THIS many that have the feeling is intriguing. Perhaps it is just human instinct to do more.. or perhaps something will happen and we are actually a minority who are meant to be able to handle what is coming.

The world is constantly changing, and new problems arise everyday, but considering the ages from some people, perhaps the ages are there for a reason - because it's in the next decade and those people would have much more capability. It's an interesting thought to go on, and I think it's too deep to just be some delusional thing.

Thats a cool thought, Im 21 in college and I'm thinking now about what I want to do with my life. I love music, beaches, sports, snowboarding and much more. If it were easy enough to right now move to Colorado, snowboard everyday possible, and live a great life while accomplishing all my goals and aspirations, I would. Anyway I have always good at math. Im studying engineering but unfortunately i'm a terrible student. Still, I love to learn and when I enjoy something I give 200% percent of my effort every time. I can ace my tests but i'll get a 20% on my homework average which will drop my grade tremendously. The point is that I have never liked the education system and as you say the world is turning. New problems arise and I hope that everyone here that believes they are destined for something greater can help change whatever it is they believe will need change in the next few decades. Hopefully by the time we all graduate from college, we make all the right decisions, and seize every opportunity so by the time those changes are to be made we can have the power and resources at our disposal.

I just feel like I'm meant for something more like I look around me and think is this all I'm meant for? And it makes me sad because I don't want to be another person who pays bills, works then dies. I want something more

You hit every thought, and feeling right to the t. It's something not easily explained. The best way I can describe it, is actually when the feeling hits me most often...when I'm driving a less familiar road, and reach my destination, not because the destination is wrong in any way, but for the simple fact that I dint want to stop, I just want to keep going. It puts me at a loss for words, which doesn't happen often

I need to know who you are.

I'm the same way! I'm not religious or really spiritual nor am I arrogant but deep down I just have this strong feeling that I'm destined for great things. Just explaining it to other people who have never had the feeling is hard and makes us look crazy lol

Ok, lots of people feel this way but I can't agree with the whole idea of being a leader. Of being bigger. Of a lifestyle change. I mean, YES, to a certain extent I agree, but NO! I don't know what it is but that's not what's calling us. It's bigger. It's way, way ******* bigger than being an advocate for human rights, animals, politics etc. This is different. Way different.

I don't know what it is exactly. I have dreams, but they're always different, and more unexplainable each time.
Embrace the unknown and let your mind wander. Nice knowing we're not alone right?

I wrote something above due to reading some comments about leadership, but you just took this to another level and I couldn't agree more. We see eye to eye my friend

Again, 100% agreed

Hey don't swe it I'm the same way I feel like I'm ment for more but I also know I'm not the only one there are a hole group of people out there that are ment for more too we just have to wait to find out what we need to do!!

I have the same feeling in all honesty. its not like an ego boosting feeling like i should be important its more like i feel I'm meant for a purpose yet its like my brain is to primitive to comprehend what it is. like someone else previously stated "something beyond what is known to exist"

It only matters if you have the courage to act upon that feeling. As someone who has been feeling this way for a while and acting on it i have noticed a 180 turn around in my life in a matter of months. I physically seen myself grow stronger more confident and more intelligent, but only because I have actively searched for opportunites to grow myself everyday. Looking back I could never return to the way I used to be because it was a lesser version of myself. I have started to view ever expirience as an opportunity to work on a skill or habbit. As Bruce Lee once said "knowing is not enough we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do." Take action today by promising yourself to better the yesterday, and then repeat everyday.

That is very inspiring I may have to take a page out of your book :)

Let me say I have had this feeling for a long time and that's saying a lot since I'm only 14 but I g
Have had this feeling for a long time probably since 3 rd grade I would always dream of ppl like me breaking in my class and do something the thing is I don't know what I want to talk to someone about this if u feel the same way please respond

Me too!

I understand

I find it kind of hard to put words on feelings, but I feel exactly the same way as you and all other guys here. I feel like I'm destined for something els, something bigger. I often feel like everything I do seems pointless. I feel like I'm ready to do something about it but quoting you "how can you chase after something you don't know what it is?".

I think that i somewhere within myself, I know what it is I'm chasing after, and it's really obvious, but I just can't see it right now.

I've felt this way too. What society offers is only a surface and doesn't seem meaningful. I get that anxious feeling like I need to survive and move constantly. I've started to train myself in kick boxing because Ifeel like my body is the only weapon i'll ever truly have and it must be prepared, for what? I do not know. But my instinct is telling me to be ready mind, body and soul. I feel like a "higher" version of who I used to be or more aware...

Add a response...

I don't know what this feeling is but I too have the feeling. But mine is a bit different than others. I feel like I need save up as much as I can, leave my loved ones behind and travel the world in search for answers. I also want to train my mind, body and soul through extremely rigorous training, adapting to any living condition and deep meditation. After this stage of my transformation, I feel like things will become clearer to me and my purpose in life will become clear. This could well be nothing but a hoax and something I may even someday regret, but if I don't atleast attempt this, I will not rest in peace in my after life. I don't tell anybody of these feelings, this is the first time I have revealed my true ambitions to anybody and I intend on following through with this plan.

Your plan sounds amazing. This is also the first time I've ever talked about this. I hope you succeed in all of your plans

Thank you, I will make it a reality. Good luck to you and whatever it is you have planned for yourself.

This is the closest explanation I've found to these same feelings! I have all of these traits and the same "symptoms" as all of you here. It sounds crazy but I really do. No other way to describe it then what's been said here.

Thank you for the link to indigo adult. I have read about indigo children...

Its 1:38 am and im going insane trying to put in my words and search for answers of how i am feeling. Im glad im not the only one. What i feel is intense and it judt hit me for about 8months now and its getting stronger and stronger. I can feel so many new things theres no words made to describe it.i feel like i am of the many chosen one. Please email me if you feel the same way i would like to seek help and find out more about this feeling im feeling. Please email me at serligee @. Ya hoo . Come

If you feel your meant to do something start doing all the things you've always wanted to do. And somewhere along the way, youll figure out what it is and it will all make sense x Good Luck

READ THIS: i feel the exact same way as most of you, the thing you think you seek or extraordinary feeling you get inside of you is actually probably somthing called gradiosity, Grandiosity refers to an unrealistic sense of superiority. try to google it and se this feeling is not so much supernatural as you thougth. ;)

I know the feeling.. I feel like I'm meant to do something.. I feel like I'm meant to do something big, like discover something in space.. I'm really interested in astronomy so I feel like I'm meant to do something in space.

I

I know how u feel I am the same as u

So what is it I am meant to do then as I feel it is something beyond what is known to exist

Its amazing coming across this site and finding out so many people feel the same way I do. If I would try to have a conversation with any of my day to day friends about this, they would look at me like they're trying to understand, but I know they don't. I also do not want to seem as though I'm a "special" person, but I also feel more enlightened than most that I come across. One thing I recently came across is that I would definitely fit into the category of a person who is an HSP (highly sensitive person), anyone interested should look this up. It would be interesting to see if anyone else having these feelings falls into this category as well. I have previously felt an extreme sense of heightened awareness as well, but have since pushed that away, as it is not something I felt comfortable with, I started to feel more and more distant from what we would define as societal norms. So I just tried to stop feeling "different" and focus on school, work, son, becoming an educated and normal person. However, the feeling has returned again, an overwhelming sensation that I am not just an average person and that I am meant to do something great and shine. I have since quit my job that I was tired of, have separated from some so called friends(and feel lighter), have focused my main energies on God, church, helping friends, family and homeless(I have so much empathy for the lost and forgotten it hurts) and am desperately seeking to fulfill my purpose in life. Although I know I have had a significant impact already in people's lives since I was a very young child. I have also been touched by some wise and valuable people and experiences in my life. I would love to gather with everyone here and talk with each other about our life experiences and our "feelings" to hopefully get a deeper understanding of what they could be stemming from. I wish everyone well on their journey in life, God Bless All of You, and may God reveal his purpose for all of us in a real and tangible way!

I have been having the feeling for all my life like I'm here for a reason, like I'm here for something really big. One thing I find very strange, creepy is about a year ago a random guy stopped me on the road and said " I know your going to do something really big" he also proceed to say "when your in your office just remember me when I come there". Another thing that I find really weird is that he handed me money and said " take this anytime you want money or anything just come to me cause I know you'll make it and when I see him always say what's up". I find this really strange btw I see the guy more often and sometime he tries to hand me money and I would refuse but, he would force me to take it. That my experience on the feeling or greatness

wow that's pretty interesting.

So more people feel like this than i thought....maybe im not crazy, or maybe we all are. Either way, if something does happen i feel like im ready, and still have no idea for what.

i've shared this feeling for around 8-10 years now. Sometimes its more intense, other times its very dormant. My family is very spiritual and claim they've seen spirits and such, and so i was spiritual as well as a child. Unlike them however i have never been able to see spirits, or anything special like that. It kind of felt like i was trying to make myself see or feel things when i never really did so i discounted the whole thing. Even though i tried to just ignore the whole spiritual thing, i still get this feeling of being something else. Maybe its just the feeling of not wanting to live a mediocre life, the thought of just working day in and out kills me, but i pray everyday that this feeling will actually lead to something out of the ordinary. I dream and day dream all day of what might happen to change this world. i know this response isnt as uplifting as others. But i am starting to lose hope after 8 some years of waiting, and waiting. Im also starting to think this feeling might just be something dumb like depression or something. But still something keeps me going.. waiting for whatever it is WE are waiting for. And if the thing we are waiting for does involve all of us collectively, i pray you all succeed and i see you all there at the end. sorry, now im getting all cheesy and ahead of myself.

I usually stay up past when my wife and kids go to bed as my job has done that to me. I have been watching a great deal of historical and scientific television.
While I couldn't imagine doing anything greater than being an amazing husband and father, I feel like a certain HUGE restlessness has developed over the past 6 months. Like my physical being knows something much larger than myself has plans for me that are coming soon, but never seem to manifest. Or perhaps the proximity to my actual point in time is farther than I think.
I would love to think that it is just boredom, since that is easily remedied, but these thoughts have permeated my thinking while at work, at home, having fun or doing whatever. If anyone had the answer, I suppose I could just google it. But something inside me knows it's coming and is restless enough to not allow me to miss it. I know I will know it when it comes, something in my very being will be immensely satisfied.
When it does happen, I will let you know. Thank you for listening.

Av had this feeling my hole life, i love history and ancient battles, feel angry pain feeling of los. There is a answer.

I have been having all of these same feelings and I don't know what they mean. I will pray and meditate for guidance but it's very hard waiting and wondering what I'm supposed to do. I guess only time will tell.

Curious how quite a few people with a feeling of destiny at the same time claim to have some form of a lack in social skills.<br />

I have found that one thing that obsesses me, and am now in the process of turning it into something great. Whether or not it will succeed, as of this moment I haven't got a clue. Even though in my mind, it has already succeeded; in practice, it will take the bigger part of my life still to finish. It has however become big enough for me to decide to completely drop a big part of what people consider the 'normal life' (social events, travelling, having children, etc.), and instead use that extra time to work on my goals. I work under the assumption that with great power, comes great responsibility; and to achieve great power, requires great sacrifice.<br /><br />Seems like spiderman was right all along.

I am a person who still needs to learn a lot about the world and everything in it, but I'll just share what I learned already:
- It is true that a group of people can perform a lot better than a person alone. As some other people here have said, if you don't know where you're heading yet, try to make sure you're not going there alone.
- Find out what types of people you can trust. For that matter, since it is different for everyone, find out what 'trust' means to you.
- There will never be a point in your life where you have learned enough to keep going without learning more.
- You will keep running into things that seem impossible. Just keep in mind that "impossibility" doesn't exist. It means nothing more than that chances are very low, and you have to find a way to improve those chances.
- Never try to find something or someone to blame. Just focus on finding a solution and get on with it.
- Nobody will truly believe in you to do something great until you have actually done something great (no matter what they say). The only person capable of truly believing in you is you.

I agree with everything you said

Yh I feel the same thing but only stronger like I can't explain it with words it something big... Bigger than anything oh my god I want to know what this feeling is I feel this like everyday in my life someone said its indigo children but I don't understand what the hell is this feeling please help and tell me?!!!!!!!!!!!!

U put in to words how I'm feeling at this point in time, feels really strange. Did u ever find your purpose to the feelings?

Not yet though I have decided to go down the path of becoming a teacher. I don't know why, but it feels like the right thing for me to do. I'm going to teach history, because I believe it's important and I have a passion for it.

I've had the same feeling as all of you for as long as I can remember. We can all sense something big is coming. Something the world has never seen before. Life doesn't happen in a neat packaged form like in the movies. The callings we are meant for will find us, but in the meantime get ready. Get your life in order, and be prepared for anything. Get in shape, do the things you want to now, and enjoy everyday. For the past two years, I've felt as if the world is going to experience loss and suffering greater than we've ever seen before, and it's people like us that will need to rise to the occasion when everyone else is paralyzed from fear and uncertainty. The people who are satisfied with the mediocrity that exists today will need leaders and guides. We are those people. So stop letting your purpose deflate you. Use it instead to fuel you. Prepare your body and mind for what's to come, because now is the only time we have to get ready. Most importantly, love people and form meaningful relationships. We cannot accomplish our purposes alone. Only together can we hope to achieve greatness.

I agree I fell as if something big like that is going to happen and we will be the people leading them and helping them.

U are right av felt the same thing for years, but i hope i don't live though whats coming.

You are not alone.
I have doubted the feeling for a long time since i could never tell if it was the societal pressure of achieving 'success' getting to my head, whether it was a grandiose delusion my ego loved to play with, or whether it actually was fate i was staring straight into the eyes of.. All i know now is that i must tune in to things i cant see but are manifested metapysically, in my mind or by what you call collective conscious energies. I feel as if there always has been one path for me.. Because i never saw an alternative in the first place.. I never actively went out my way for spirituality or anything remotely close but now im pretty sure that it's the only way i can answer these questions i have for my existence.. If this is how you feel, rest assured, you are not alone.

I as everyone else so far have this feeling too. I'm 14 and feel as if I'm destined to do great things. Schooling has failed me in my life, I feel as if the path I am walking is not mine too many people have walked it and it's my time to change. When I think of God I don't think of Christianity, Islam, Judaism or Buddhism I think of god as a being that cares for me and people like me I feel as if God has created this for me and I'm meant to do great things. We as a group a growing in numbers. We are going to be the next generation of scientists and visionaries we are going to change the world but only if we join together. I have special abilities I have an extremely fast response time and when moving through an obstacle I'm able to identify and avoid anything dangerous. When I dream I dream of changing from me into a form of light, a light so blinding that I'm brighter than the sun. Our time is coming... Get ready

What are we supposed to do though? ive been focusing on that lately and i need an answer soon. I feel like we are meant to figure that out on our own, but i need to be pointed in the right direction or something because i have no idea where to start looking for where i belong and what imeant to be doing.
