Willow Smith: "I feel like I've lived so many lives"
WILLOW Smith feels like she is leading her "second-to-last life".
The 15-year-old singer-and-actress feels she has been on earth many times before but wants "more" from her current existence so she can have as many experiences as possible before moving on to "another dimension".
Speaking to Dazed magazine, she said: "I feel like I've lived so many lives on this earth. I feel like this is, if not my last life, my second-to-last life.
"I feel like every single day I've been on this planet I've been with these same people and souls for eternity. It's insane.
"I look around and feel a familiarity and a nagging sense of 'I want more'. I want more of life, I want more understanding, I want more of this feeling of connectedness.
"Then I'm like, 'You know what, let me live this life out to the fullest so I can go to another dimension and have a completely new life cycle. That's really my goals right now, that's my goals."
Willow - who is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith - insists there is nothing more important in her life than raising her "intellect and spiritual energy", but she also knows the world "needs" her to fulfill her destiny of being a leader.
Asked how she feels to be positioned as a leader, she said: "There's a certain amount of pressure that comes with it, because you have so many eyes on you. Especially when you grow up and people are like, 'Oh, you're destined for greatness'. It's like, dang, can't I make my own destiny?
"Just because everyone is telling me I'm destined for this one thing, what if that's not the truth? What if I can make something different happen?
"I've always known there is nothing more important than raising my intellect and spiritual energy - just heightening my frequency. But sometimes you get caught up in like, 'Oh I'm supposed to be something...'
"I'm being myself, but is that really myself? Sometimes I feel like I just want to sit in my room and be alone and not talk to anybody.
"But sometimes you really just need to bite the bullet and be like, 'You know what, this isn't about me.' I know the world needs my voice and how far it goes, so I want to give it all out."
