Hi folks, \tFirst and foremost, I don't have work tomorrow so I shall take the time to make a thread that will hopefully generate some responses. A few years ago, my cousin ( a 28 year old now) started researching the topic of aliens and the meaning behind ancient and recent findings/artifacts and so on and so forth. Mind you, prior to this he was always a very strong minded individual with almost a sort of dickheadish attitude he admitted to. He remains to be the same strong minded individual yet has become one of the most loving, intrigued, accepting, understanding and knowledgeable people I know. I don't know what sparked the change in him, but something did, which I think was his lightswitch interest in aliens and now overall spirituality. He was a a hardworker, big drinker and smoked very rarely if ever. \tMy cousin now drinks only on occasion and hasn't cared for smoking weed which is nothing new, which I'm more than accepting of. Ultimately, the exposure of all this has led him, myself, my brother and many others to deeply consider what not only our meaning is here, but what, if any hope is there for a different world. We've come to realize that the time we live in isn't what life should be like at all. If I try to go too in depth, I'll get way too sidetracked, so I'm attempting to keep things simpler. I myself find it hard to relay what thoughts and feelings I get, but most times the feelings are strong. \t I try to make the best of things despite the disagreements I have with certain things around me and truly love many aspects of life. However, I have become overwhelmed and bitter about the many things wrong with how not only the human race operates, but how things in general are. I'm someone that has felt something is wrong with the picture. Every great civilization has been flawed in some way, which some theorists believe are the reason for the disappearance of said civilizations. While natural disasters seem to be the probable cause, it's not that crazy to think that perhaps, a higher power, maybe extraterrestrials have been monitoring and keeping us in line over time, for the betterment of humanity. One must also understand that earth is merely a microcosm, if that in space. We'd be absolutely foolish to think we're the only form of intelligent life. So with that said, it's likely to believe that there is an alien culture attempting and achieving interaction with human life. \t There are several hundreds of videos of UFO sightings and a handful of testimonies from respected and important past government officials, as well as say Groom Lake and Area 51 test pilots. Fact of the matter is that the proof is in the pudding, and if your someone who has not yet accepted or understood that alien interaction is entirely possible and likely, then I'd I would suggest looking into it with hopes that it will spark an interest. There are holes in this that I'd love to fill in and go more in depth about, but I'll spare the reading for now. The point I'm trying to make is that this has all led up to my constant seeing of the numbers 1, in a series whether it be the time (11:11 or 1:11) or showing in multiple combinations. An example of the combination I speak of would be when say my current miles left to an empty gas tank on the digital gauge read to 111, after not having looked at it for quite a while. This has happened even when the time was 1:11. I would also like to add that I'm not staring the clock at 1:05 and plan to look at it in a few minutes hoping it'll be 1:11. \t Usually, when I have these occurrences, it seems to be when I'm thinking of something entirely unrelated and haven't viewed the clock in a while. Then when I see the number 1, arranged in whatever series it may be, I feel almost as if the numbers are looking at me and my body gets an almost tingly feeling. It's quite difficult to explain, but I'll end with saying that I'm sure there is much further meaning to the things happening to me currently than I'm able to understand. I can say however that I'm going to continue being the best person I can be and will be willing to accept whatever changes, whether spiritual/ physical/ or mental that might occur in the coming months or years perhaps. \t \tA main belief of mine is that with 2012 approaching, things may be coming to a point. Regardless of what may happen in 2012, assuming its non apocolyptic that is, will barely phase most people. However, a select few of us will continue our transference into the 4th dimension I'm hoping, where we change emotionally and intellectually for the better. Please share any related thoughts or ideas you have. One more thing I wanted to add is that I've been job searching for months and recently and didn't have much luck. To say the least, within what seemed like a snap of the fingers, I had an interview on 11/11 recently that went so well, I was hired the next day. This was my first interview in a couple of months mind you. Coincidence? It's hard for me to think so.
