I'd love to hear from everyone else too- what you believe your path is leading you to, and how that may have changed over time.
I had my spiritual awakening in 2013. I was 16. Since I was 14 I have been interested in the 'taboo' and had researched things like Wicca, Satanism and Paganism before I was 15, and was already very into Astrology and Numerology. It wasn't until I experienced a big loss at 16 that I found the incredibly strong urge to find out what I was all about and what was really going on. When I was reading through my astrological birth chart, and finding online interpretations, I came across the concept of Indigo Children. I was interested immediately, and as I was reading descriptions and traits of Indigo Children and Starseeds, I was so compelled as it felt like someone was watching me, telling me all about myself.
At this point my destiny was not clear, but I knew I was yet to find out. Over that year I researched almost every night about Indigo Starseeds and lightworkers and found so many connections in my birth chart for this phenomena. I discovered that my soul's birth place was in the Orion constellation which explained so much about me- my connection to Ancient Egypt, my past lives of ruthlessness and power. It haunts me that I may have come from a past of destruction, which I may have helped cause too, but I was certain of one thing- a big part of my current journey was to learn emotion, empathy and compassion. It is my time to heal the world with my logic, structure and power from the past, but this time also using my new-found compassion and understanding to really make a difference that is fair and just for every being. That is why I had to experience loss before my awakening- as I needed my emotions to grow out of a broken heart.
Over the next couple of years, I was moving out into the 'adult world', and I knew I wanted to pursue a career in science. I knew I had a lot to give, and I have always been passionate about learning and knowledge and creating. I started studying for a career in Palaeontology, as I knew it was very important to understand the past to be able to anticipate the future. I was thinking of narrowing down to either human evolution, or very ancient life (as in, the first bacteria-like creatures that existed on Earth) so I could discover more about the past and where life on earth was headed. However, I began to feel like my time was running out, and that this career path would take so many years of 'working my way up'. Palaeontology is very competitive, male-dominated and it takes almost a whole lifetime of work to become well recognised and respected in this field. I basically knew I had to wait until the current large presences were retired before I had a chance to establish myself. Funding for Palaeontology is often lacking, especially in Australia where I live, and Australian Palaeontologists are often sent overseas to study 'more interesting sites', instead of being allowed to study all the wonders that are in the rocks of this country.
I found myself more and more desperate to help the world's current situation. Not from the past, not for the future, but NOW. I decided to switch to Environmental Science. I have always had a special connection to plants and I was always someone to speak up about global warming. I knew right away this was the right decision. I finished my degree a couple of years ago, and got a job straight out of uni, at a university research institute, where I still am and hope to be for a long time. Career-wise, I know my destiny is to continue research on how to return the environment to a good condition after human destruction such as mining and farming/grazing. It's important to fix what we have altered, as the environmental impact of humans is only going to get worse, and less land is able to be 'saved' and 'be left untouched'. Instead of trying to save what little natural land is left, we should be putting just as much effort, if not more, into fixing what we've already destroyed.
I have also finally found my voice, in my own personal life, for spreading the message for world-wide change. I have invested my time and energy into so many different topics such as veganism, socialism, spirituality and plenty more environmental causes. I have been able to speak up against many issues too such as racism, sexism, homophobia, abuse, and almost every form of inequality that exists. I always knew I had such important things to say and a message to spread but I never knew that I would really have such an impact, but now I am feeling it. It's an immeasurable impact really. You can't measure how far your words go, and how many people take your words seriously. But you can feel it, and see it in your own personal life. Your family and friends become more open-minded when you lead by example and share your thoughts without hesitance or frustration.
I finally feel like I can fight for change without it negatively affecting my emotions and well-being. I used to hold back from speaking out a lot, because I would find myself exhausted and hurt for days when I experienced backlash of any kind. Now I can really put up a shield against this, and I feel nothing but more determined to keep fighting for the truth. I smile in the fact of opposition because I know it is just a reflection of humanities unfortunate resistance to change, and not really the individuals who want to bring me down, as they really don't know any better if they are not equipped for it right now. It is not always their time to change, but it is ALWAYS my time to spread the truth and I am always happy doing so, because it is expressing myself from the very core of who I am- and Indigo Starseed from Orion who will never back down from what I know is right for this world.
As an indigo child, I feel more in touch with my destiny than I ever have, and I know that I will feel closer and closer every year. There are many more changes to come. 6 years ago when my spiritual journey started, I felt so much energy for a paradigm shift and a universal awakening. I kept being told by fellow lightworkers that it was coming, and already happening but it wasn't fast enough! I kept thinking 'why can't I see more change, when everyone says it's happening?'. Now looking back, I can see the changes so clearly, and we've come so far. But looking forward, you just want to hold on to your future visions and pull them closer, so they can get here faster. But you can't physically do that. All you can do is keep making way for it to come when it needs to. Keep fighting and spreading the truth. Clear the path for future. Leave no room for anything else.
Much love and light to you all!
