11 Common Starseed Traits And How to Tell If You Are One
Do you ever get the feeling that your soul is perhaps not from here? Like your soul has already been on this merry-go-round that we call life many many times over and not always on Earth?
You feel a bit like a fish out of water and wonder how your soul even got here in this dense and violent place. Perhaps you even have flashes of past lives that don't look like any place on Earth and you start wondering whether you're at all sane.
If this is you then you could be a starseed and may be going through starseed awakening. Starseeds are souls from other worlds that have volunteered to incarnate on Earth. I'm gonna go through 11 common starseed characteristics to help you determine if you are one.
Let's get started!
What Is A Starseed?
Experts estimate that there are at least 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe and at least that many stars in our own galaxy alone. Think about that for a second. That's a lot of planets!
How could humans be the only sentient race in the entire universe? We all have past lives. It is not at all inconceivable that, in such a gigantic universe, that some of them have not been on Earth.
Moreover, there are so many legends of visitations from elementals, mythical creatures, beings we call gods, and the more commonly known extra-terrestrial alien species.
I firmly believe that not only do they exist but they have their own star systems and realms, not always in the same physical frequency band as ours. These beings have visited Earth and many of them have helped us in our spiritual evolution.
I channel my spirit guides and angels almost every day and let me tell you that soul's growth, ascension, and spiritual evolution is top on the agenda for all beings aligned with the light and source energy across the entire cosmos.
According to my knowledge, many non-human beings have volunteered to give up their own lives in their own star systems to incarnate here on Earth and help raise our consciousness. That is what a starseed.
One thing to remember is that starseed types are not restricted to only Pleiadians, Sirians, Arcturians, Andromedans, Lyrans, etc. Incarnated angels and elementals are also starseeds. There is no restriction. You are whatever you resonate with, whether it's a well established type of starseed or not!
I myself am a starseed, an elven starseed, and I have met many other people who also feel like their soul origin is not human, but other. People who have memories or a yearning for another place that isn't here.
A lot of people are awakening to their galactic heritage. A great shift has taken place and the galactic portals are now open. There is a clarion call for us to remember who we really are.
Are you one such person? Let's find out. Speaking from experience, I'm going to go over some of the traits common to starseeds so that you can determine, with confidence, whether you are one and what to do about it.
You've Always Felt Different
Starseeds often spend their whole lives feeling completely different and out of place in this world. I know I always have. There are so many ways in which you feel different to all those around you.
- You go about life feeling not like a participant but like an observer.
- It often feels surreal to you to watch people go about their lives - live, make money, get involved in petty egoistic struggles.
- You find yourself not really being able to relate
- You often feel like you're a square peg in a world of round holes.
- You simply are not able to fit into traditional social roles.
I mean, we're all different, but we starseeds have always felt that way. It's like a next level feeling of being different that goes beyond just not fitting in at school or being the 'weird' and 'eccentric' one (though we are often labelled as such).
It's something that's hard to form into words and doesn't really have any one cause. It just is and has always been so. It's an inner knowing, deep in your soul, that you just don't belong here.
You're Homesick For a Place You Can't Name and Only Partially Remember
Let me tell you something about myself. As I mentioned earlier, I am an elven starseed. It took me a very long time and a lot of inner struggle to accept that but looking back, I always knew on some instinctual level.
When I was a child, I would spend hours searching for information on the faerie realm, leylines, hidden history, and ancient myths. I was trying to find out if there really were portals at the points where leylines meet so I could go home.
My deepest wish was to go home although I didn't really have a clear conscious memory or understanding yet of what that home was. Do you feel the same way?
Are you homesick for your home world?
Maybe you're at the beginning stage where you just know in your heart that you're not from here and are trying to find where home is, or maybe you already have some flashes of past life memories, or maybe you've already met your spirit guides and some of them don't really look human.
Whatever stage you're at, you just feel this deep yearning to go back. Dear friend, this is normal! It's part of the awakening process and we all feel this homesickness.
Remember that your soul opted to come here for a reason. Mine has been incarnating on earth for thousands of years but I do remember choosing to come down here, after Atlantis fell, to help.
It's hard being here in this realm, but we have a job to do and once we do it we can go home.
You Have an Insatiable Thirst for Hidden Knowledge
There are certain things that you just know, subconsciously, are true and can't understand why this knowledge is hidden from humanity.
For example, I find myself endlessly fascinated by the legends of Atlantis, stories of people vanishing in the Bermuda Triangle, people disappearing into the faerie realm, the ancient astronaut theory, and secrets about ancient structures.
I looked into the pyramids of Egypt and how they're aligned with Orion's belt, how the sphinx may be much older that traditional archaeology suggests, and how certain symbols, star alignments, and structures appear in ancient cultures separated by thousands of miles. I would read these things, watch documentaries, and it would feel like it just fits.
You feel it too, don't you?
Something inside you does not let you accept the traditional interpretation of history and you feel like there is so much under the surface that is being hidden from us.
You know it because that knowledge carried over when you incarnated here and the things you look into and find yourself drawn to are a reflection of your soul's history and origin.
You Have an Instinctual Understanding of Metaphysics
You know that feeling when the name of an actor or a song is just on the tip of your tongue but you can't, for the life you, remember it? Then, when it comes to you you're like oh yeaaah! That's it! How could I have ever forgotten?
Yeah, that's what being a starseed is like and the thing that we forgot how to do but feels so natural to us is working with energy and understanding metaphysics. It just fits like a glove.
You're a natural. You read books about the chakras, energy dynamics, spell work, different levels of consciousness, past lives, multidimensional self all of it. You read those things and you pick it up quickly.
Do you also feel like you're reading a book on chakras or metaphysics or something and then right before you go to bed, or when you get into the shower, you receive a flood of information in your mind about that topic? Like you're getting downloads on the info and it just makes sense.
The things we were and knew in our past lives are imprinted into our souls. It's like learning how to drive and then not driving for years and years. When you do, it comes back to you quickly, like muscle memory. That's how you are with metaphysics.
You Feel like You're an Old Soul
Starseeds tend to be old souls. Some of us remember things that may have happened billions of years ago. For example, the fall of Lyra (look it up, it's really fascinating). Even if we don't remember specific events, many of us originated on planets many lightyears from here and billions of years ago.
We have existed in various states since then, perhaps incarnating in various star systems in the cosmos before coming to earth.
Many of us volunteered to incarnate during the time of Atlantis. You know how old that makes our souls? Pretty damn old.
Here are some characteristics of old souls:
- People often feel like you're wise beyond your years
- You seek knowledge and learning
- You are not interested in the petty goings on of everyday life and instead are more interested in spiritual growth
- You sometimes come across as a bit of a hermit because of your tendency to withdraw and contemplate
- You are not at all materialistic
- You are aware that we are all one and because of it champion sustainability, conservation, and animal welfare
And the list goes on...
The point is, you feel like you've already been on this merry go round many many times and may even remember more than one past life.
You Have a Naturally High Intuition and Tend to Attract Psychic and Paranormal Phenomenon
I'm going to share another personal tidbit with you. I've always been able to see tree spirits. Not with my physical eyes but with my third eye. Ever since I was a child, I've been able to see them and sense them. Not 24 hours a day mind you, but when I pay attention.
Many starseeds have some kind of intuitive gift that they've always been strong in.
I'm not an empath but many starseeds are. They can sense other people's energies and emotions. As for me, as a clairvoyant, my strength is sight. I can tune in to people's energies and see colours around them. Mind you, I had a calcified pineal gland so I had to work at this, but once I started it came to me quickly.
It was like I was remembering how to use a sixth sense that I always had but just forgot about for a while.
We starseeds often incarnate here with our crown chakras wide open. We have this natural, inbuilt, connection to the higher realms where we come from and very occasionally, reality bends a little around us.
Not sure what I mean? I'm talking about things like:
- Power manifestation
- Being good at witchcraft
- Having synchronicities, repeating numbers, and signs just flood us everywhere.
Our spirit guides send us these signs and help us develop our abilities to make sure that we wake up.
You Are Highly Sensitive to Crowds and Other People's Energies
Because of our naturally high intuition and affinity for energy work and metaphysics we are also extremely sensitive. In my home world, energy is just a fact of life. Crystal healing is common and wounds can be healed by sitting in a crystal chamber and through sound vibrations.
Then you come here and although it is dense, you have got an innate awareness of energy.
So what does that mean?
- You often feel drained when you're in crowds
- You cannot withstand too much negative conversation or media. It gives you headaches and sometimes makes you sick!
- You are highly affected by thought forms. For example, when someone criticises you or says something negative you can almost feel the barbs going into your energy field.
- You can tell when something is wrong with someone physically or emotionally. You sometimes feel their energy before they even speak.
Because of these things, you find yourself having to withdraw and do an energetic cleanse very frequently to feel better. If that's you, you should definitely look into shielding and psychic connection which I'll be covering in another post.
You Tend to Have Intense, Vivid, Dreams
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a very active dream life. I would venture to say that most starseeds do too. We tend to have very realistic, vivid dreams, often as if they are in high definition.
This doesn't always happen but when it does, you sit up and take notice.
Your dreams may sometimes feel more like memories of another place and time. Other times you dream of your spirit guides or beings from your home world.
For example, when I was getting a flood of of memories and visions during meditation of my elven home world, it was extremely disconcerting to say the least. My spirit guides have always come through for me, so I said to them if this is real, if I am an elven starseed then visit me in my dreams. That was the sign I asked for and I got it.
That night, I dreamt I was in a park with some friends. The dream was progressing as normal and then suddenly everything just stopped and clear as day was one of the beings I met during my meditational travels. It was the elven queen and she gave me an important message regarding my mission.
The way you can tell that it's a genuine visitation and not just a regular dream is that the dream feels very real. The being that you encounter in your dream looks and feels so high definition compared to the hazy dream like quality of everything else in the dream.
That's how the elven queen was like in my dream. Her voice was booming, almost like a broadcast, and there was an urgent quality to it.
Another time, during the lion's gate portal opening, I was having a very random, normal, dream. I was walking down the sidewalk and right there, was a lion. It looked, felt, and even smelled like a real one. It was just watching me.
I have more stories like this but I'm not going to tell you all of them right now. I've even had recurring dreams on multiple occasions warning me of things that came to pass in my own life.
The point is, we starseeds often have intense, meaningful, and vivid dreams.
Well, it's because like I said earlier we come here with our psychic channels open. Not only that but our own higher selves try to get us to wake up and remember who we are through our dreams. Sometimes, it's our starseed guide, that is trying to communicate something of import.
Do you have vivid dreams?
You Have Past Life Memories or Visions of Another Realm
It's not just vivid dreams that mark you as a starseed. You actually remember bits and pieces of your life on your home world or even of multiple worlds. This often happens as a part of spiritual awakening.
You start meditating, clearing your chakras, trying to raise your vibration and then it happens. Spiritual awakening. Your consciousness expands and you start remembering who you were in past lives.
There is usually a trigger. You see something that feels familiar to you, a place or time you feel an affinity with, and then you get flashes of your own life there.
For example, you go to Venice and see pictures of Venice and then get flashes of one of your past lives there. That's how it usually goes. Another way is when you meditate you remember significant parts of your past lives.
For starseeds we remember a somewhere that doesn't look like any place on this planet and the inhabitants we see or remember are extra-terrestrial. We can even go there during meditation. I mean, I visit my home world during meditation all the time for learning, counsel, and remembrance.
It doesn't even have to be one single past life. Many starseeds remember living on various worlds, not just the one. It's just that the very first place you were incarnated, your soul origin, leaves an imprint on your soul.
Remembering who you really are is the first step towards completing your mission, your life task. This happens through reintegration of all the fragments of your past selves. That's part of the ascension process, peeling back the all layers of you and revelling in your multidimensional self.
You Feel a Strong Connection to the Stars, the Elemental, or Angelic Kingdoms
This is a big one. In terms past lives, usually, you feel a strong pull and affinity for a certain place and time.
Going with the example I gave of Venice, which happens to be one of my human past lives, if it were you you'd feel a very strong pull towards Italy in a certain time period. For me, I just love Renaissance Italy. I know I was born there multiple times.
The pattern is, you feel a pull towards that place and then you remember.
Starseeds often feel that was about the stars. You're interested in astronomy or astrology and you find yourself often staring up at the night sky. Perhaps there is one constellation or star that always catches your eye and you just feel and peace when you look up at the sky. That is your trigger.
If you're an incarnated elemental like me you'll feel very drawn to the elements, usually one element, and have an affinity for a certain type of being.
For me, it's the elves and one of my early triggers the Lord of the Rings. Every single time I watch those movies, it feels like home, especially when the elven kingdoms are depicted. It just feels right. I am always drawn to the elves and just can't shake it.
If you're an incarnated angel you will feel that way about angels and the angelic ream. Of course, your past life memories would be of your time as an angel and you would have visions of and visit the angelic kingdom in your meditations and dreams a lot.
The key point is that your starseed type is not something that someone arbitrarily assigns to you. No. It doesn't happen in a vacuum! When you hit on it, it feels like home, it feels like this is the truth, the missing piece that you have always been looking for and now it all makes sense.
You Are an Idealist and See the World as How It Should Be
My whole life people have been telling me that I'm too much of an idealist, that the world is a horrible, terrible, place and that's just how it is. Yes, bad things happen in this world. So many bad things.
But I see the beauty and the light here. I see how small acts of kindness can change the world and for the life of me I cannot give in to a fatalistic mentality.
Do you feel that way too?
We starseeds have a vision of how the world could be. How we could be living in unity and peace, working for the good of all mankind.
Why? Because that is often how life was in our home world. Again, it may not be a conscious remembering, but you know on a soul level that that's how it was on your world and that's how it should be here. You want that for humanity.
It's like there's something inside of you, a sort of soul-level power, that does not allow you to give up hope. People say to you that you are a fool, that your thoughts and actions make no difference, and the way of the world is that money, power, and evil will always win but you know deep inside that isn't true.
Your hope and vision for a bright future is part of the reason why you're here. Why it's you that chose to incarnate here and not others.
Okay You're a Starseed, Now What?
You have gone through the list of character traits and you feel like yes, this is me. Perhaps you already have some past life memories, visions, or encounters relating to your starseed self. You have accepted that you are a starseed.
But wait, now what? What do you do? What comes next?
It's simple. Here is what you do:
- Explore your past lives, your extra-terrestrial and earth ones, and find out as much as possible about who you are as a soul. What have you been through? What challenges have you faced in previous lives? Now is the time to reintegrate those fragments of yourself that have been lost to you. Recover those pieces and get closer to your soul self.
- Work on finding out what your starseed mission is. What have you agreed to come to Earth to do? Connect with your starseed guides and ask them about it, explore your past life memories, and make a list of what your inborn strengths are. What are your gifts? One of mine is my gift of words. Writing is my strongest ability.
What about you?
What's your mission and how are you going to use your gifts in service of that?
