I want to change the world.

I may look like a fairy, but I'm really a unicorn deep inside. ;)
My name is Heather, and I'm 28 years old now, but I've wanted to change the world since I was a child. I never really fit in, and I was teased a lot in school. But these things didn't bother me as much because I knew I had much bigger things to worry about.
From childhood, I experienced lucid dreaming. I never experienced a non-lucid dream. In fact, in college level Psychology, I was completely stunned to discover that most people don't have consciousness in their dreams! I've never known anything different.
My teenage years brought even more strange experiences. I'd close my eyes, then suddenly discover I could see through my lids and out across a great field, or to a tall mountain. Sometimes, I'd even see other people, and they would wave at me. More than once, I saw frightening figures as well. I saw visions. I sensed spirits. I astral projected. And I never meant to do any of it -- it all just came naturally and unexpectedly. I wish I could somehow learn to control these experiences. It would be wonderful to astral project at will, rather than randomly being tossed across the earth.
These forays with the supernatural thrill and entice me, but they're not the core of my existence. When I was 19, I co-founded a Kiwanis Club to do volunteer work in the community. When I was 22, I traveled across America, road-trip-style, doing random acts of kindness and volunteer work for three months, all across the country. When I was 23, I co-founded ME-3, a non-profit designed to inspire kindness and volunteerism in my home community.
I truly believe that kindness is the best way to change the world, and that everyone wants to make an impact--some people just need guidance; they aren't sure how to start.
I don't know if I'm an "Indigo." I've never had my aura checked. I can't see aura's, but one time I looked within and meditated to find my true self, and I found a small white glowing ball. So I don't know if I'm Indigo. But several people I've met have randomly asked me if I am. Even total strangers.
But I do have Indigo traits. I'm sensitive the the spiritual realm, and would love to grow in my abilities by sharing and conversing with other people with the same gift. I was born in 1982, so the timing is perfect. But most importantly, I want to change the world. And I was wondering if there is any cohesive group or groups of Indigos that work together to make a difference? There's strength in numbers! Furthermore, I'd like to see what other Indigos are doing to help change the world. :)
