I had a dream

And in that dream I heard a voice as clear as day tell me “You are a universal being


It wasn’t a dream

Yes my eyes were closed but I was awake!

I ran it through in my mind at least a hundred times…I must have imagined it…right!?

I tried hard to convince myself but to no avail…my mind resisted…my mind and body knew what it had experienced

‘The voice’ was powerful; I felt it in my chest like when my dad used to call me as a child

It was how I imagined the voice of God delivering the Ten Commandments to Moses on the mountain

I’m certainly no Moses, and my bed certainly not as grand as Har Sinai.

And as the voice replayed in my mind I realised it was not the first time I had heard it

Suppressed in my sub conscious for it was too hard to address

Frightening, powerful, commanding…reassuring…familar

“wake up” it said

With a dog whistle effect…it boomed…but I knew only I could hear it

What did it mean…I’m a universal being?

Thus started hours of research

I came across numerous checklists…eerily close in describing me

…will at some point in their life receive a “wake up” call- check

‘The voice’ hadn’t given me the answers, but had it pointed me in the right direction?

Searching for the meaning of a universal being

I happened upon reams of information so relevant and familiar to me

Truth or the writings of new age alternative thinkers who are all too often rubbished by the main stream

Suggesting that I may not be from Earth

Which makes me what…an alien!?

No matter how far out there it seems…

It’s just too coincidental

It can’t be accidental

It makes too much sense to be non-sense

For me it explains so many things

Why I feel so alone

The constant feeling that what most accept as right just isn’t so

The longing for something more…beyond this life

My open mindedness to endless possibilities and superhuman abilities

My attraction to metaphysics

My fascination with the stars

…my alien looking toes.

I may appear human

But I’m of a different breed

I’m a universal being…

I’m a Starseed

Awaiting instruction

On how to proceed
