It starts with a vague feeling of something not quite being 'right'. Sounds are harsher on the ears, you find yourself avoiding your once-beloved candle shop because the scents are so over powering. The mall, once a wonderful Temple of Temptations, has become the ninth circle of hell, as have many other public venues. Noise and crowds now drive you away, rather than excite and attract you. Your 'been-there, done-that' passport is completely filled, and nothing really thrills you any more. It's mindless kiddie stuff now.

Anyone else felt like this yet?
begin to drift, to dissolve, as your interests change and shift. Your home becomes your refuge and sanctuary, and your solitude becomes sacred. You might even end a relationship to achieve this solitude, but you never feel lonely. The TV and radio are off more than they are on, and popular music seems to be vapid and empty to your now extremely sensitive ears. Suddenly, you feel no anxiety in telling offensive and obnoxious people where to get off, and meaning it. Your moods become the stuff of legend. Sounds almost like menopause, but it isn't. You have bursts of creativity, and bursts of total laziness and disinterest.
Food becomes a challenge: what you once loved, you now hate, and processed food suddenly seems toxic to you- or at least your body believes so judging by its reactions. You might start getting odd rashes, having allergic reactions to formerly benign things, having nap attacks, and feeling swimmy in the head. You begin to believe that you are a walking collection of mysterious aches, pains, cramps, spasms and numbness. Sleep is erratic, with vivid dreams- especially if you've had an alcoholic beverage before bedtime. Your sex drive may flip-flop. Visits to your doctor reveal nothing.
Religion no longer satisfies- even if you are devout, you might cease getting anything out of the services or rituals you've practiced for years. If you had spiritual contacts, the connection may seem altered, or the mental 'handshake' you were accustomed to having confirming the connection may vanish. A little probing will reveal that you now have an 'always-on' broadband quality connection with Spirit, and spiritual things that you struggled to master before- including certain meditative exercises- become effortless. Best of all, the quality of your spiritual connection becomes almost pristine, without the usual 'noise' you had to struggle through to communicate.
You might find yourself changing light bulbs more often, or having to contend with the sudden failure of a favorite electronic gadget. Computers might suddenly either hate or love you, and very sensitive electronic instruments may go haywire in your presence. Small kids and animals may react violently to your presence, and you may have to carefully remake your acquaintance with pets.
What is happening? Are you turning into an eccentric curmudgeon? Or- god forbid- a 'Carrie'? No, you are transiting from your Indigo stage to your Octarine/Crystal stage. You've undergone the trials and tribulations of life, had your hard knocks and educational experiences, built your inner self-confidence and learned about your capabilities. Now it is time to get down to your real mission in life.
