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.

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.

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.

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.

That is just like me its hard to explain but I feel that I am ment for something I don't know what but I know the feeling I feel different to other people I just would like to know why.

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 />
<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.

I'm a 17 year old High School student and I've been experiencing the same things. For a few 8 years or so I've been having the feeling that I'm destined to do something BIG, something beyond the "normal life". I'm quite good at studies, especially foreign languages and math, my social skills are very low, my intrests in things are quite low too. Feels like the "normal" things that excite ordinary people don't exite me. And it's not that I feel like I'm better than others, infact I' m kinda shy and a bit on my own because I see that everyone around me (the persons i label as ordinary (not in an offensive way)) has a purpose or a passion (often I get the feeling that these "ordinary people" can't see beyond the life the society put out for them (just like in the matrix)). And I get the feeling I should be doing something incredible and helping others or save the world! The feeling is getting stronger and stronger and it's depressing me in a way because others around me are happy with the society life, but i am not. I can't live an ordinary life just work, eat, sleep. There must be something greater. Something like an adventure almost magical (not that I believe in magic or stuff like that). I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking like this. I've asked some friends of mine what they think about life and they say it satisfies them. They think I'm spoiled by the way I think. But im not. I can't watch superhero movies too because it stresses me out. Seeing how their calling gets satisfied and still I'm waiting and going crazy because I begin to doubt my feelings.

I'm feelings the same as everyone here, lately these feelings are overwhelming and keeping me awake, maybe it's finally our time to.do whatever it is that we are ment to.

OH MY GOSH I FEEL LIKE THIS TOO

I feel like I could take a few dollars from each and turn them into millions. Not in a bad way... I mean if I could, I'll make sure you get paid back through the interest. If you're keen, I'm ready to start or join the long awaited group
