I just wanted to say that I have had similar experiences in my life. I have always known that I do not sleep at night and travel and do jobs elsewhere. In the 1970s, while I was “sleeping”, I worked with Light Beings who rescued earthbound people and took them to the Light. I discontinued doing it because in this life I was to be a teacher and I needed to concentrate all my energy in that area.
Since then, I have used incorporation counseling method to do the same work while in trance. It is not as effective method to help earthbound souls, but it helps. I have seen so called “dead” people all my life, and like you, I learned at a very early age to keep it quiet. I also see auras around people and on a few occasions, have given readings for friends, but usually it wasn’t a good idea. I was correct in what I saw and said, but I usually lost a friend over it “because it was too weird”, so I quit doing it.
I got no encouragement from my mother to be the “real” me; usually she accused me of lying. When I was in my 50’s and she was living with me, she admitted she knew what was going on with me because her mother had been clairvoyant. She said she didn’t want me to be like her mother, because it had caused a lot of friction in her family when growing up. I could have enjoyed an ally as a child. I thought there was something very wrong with me, that’s why I hid it. When I was 34 years old I met some people like me. It made life so much nicer.
I can really relate to your experiences recorded in your book. Thank you for writing it. It is so nice to find a “kindred soul.”
I understand when you say you needed to concentrate all your energy to what you were doing in this life as a teacher. It’s utterly exhausting to continually ‘work overtime’. I found saying an Affirmation before sleeping such as ‘I will get all the rest I need tonight’ really helps. In my case when I was over exhausted my Guides would stand ‘guard’ at my bedroom door, redirecting those in need to other ‘Fringe Dwellers’ out there. We are not alone, and we can ask for what we need, a wonderful concept I didn’t discover until a few years ago myself!
Despite our feelings of isolation while growing up, perhaps we can now take consolation by making a difference for others. I feel communication and support without judgment is necessary for people to feel ‘safe’ enough to open up and share their experiences. I understand when you say ‘It made life so much nicer’ when you met others like you. To live one’s life in complete authenticity is very liberating, empowering, and loving.
I’m in a state of gratitude when I hear that this book has brought comfort to someone. Thank you for writing and sharing your experiences. It was my very isolation growing up that sparked the need to share mine with the Fringe Dweller book.
So to other Fringe Dwellers out there I say… ‘Embrace you Freakdom!’, and as my friend Lynn repeatedly would say, ‘Don’t be afraid to be who you are.’
Sincerely, the Fringe Dweller
