Are You a Starseed on Planet Earth?

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

When I first learnt about ‘Starseeds’ , I was immensely fascinated. The word Starseed is used to refer to those souls who have lived on different stars and energetic dimensions before incarnating on Earth. They are energetically evolved and are very wise at the soul level. Many of them are born enlightened though they may not be consciously aware of this.

What is their Purpose?

These souls choose to incarnate on Earth and to experience life in a human body. Many of them have had several incarnations on Earth already and experience the ups and downs of life, like every other human. They also bring love, light and many soul gifts to help Planet Earth with the shift that it is experiencing in the present time. They choose to get entangled in the web of karma so they may truly understand the limitations of human life and then proceed to help other humans on their evolutionary path.

Some Starseeds bring gifts that are specific to their stars of origin. Others have lived on several stars and bring gifts from each of their starry homes. All of these gifts lie latent in them and spring forth when the time is ripe for them to fulfill their Earthly mission.

Now if you’re wondering why these Starseeds must take all this trouble, the answer is that the Earth has been going through a positive evolutionary shift in the last few years. This shift has accelerated post 2012. This is an energetic shift from the lower dimensions of existence to the higher dimensions. The Earth was a third dimensional planet for eons of time, which is a rather low place to be in terms of energetic evolution. Living in the third dimension means that we are limited by the density of matter that surrounds us. Utilizing our potential as the energy beings that we truly are is quite a challenge in third dimensional reality. Matter rules, which is why skeptics and strictly scientific people consider energy healers to be out of their minds!

Also, evil and darkness prevail to a large extent and people are cut off from Source/God/Highest Truth. The heart is closed and there is no place for love or light to come in. This is what third dimensional reality is all about. That explains all the violence, war, racism, suppression, disease, unrest (at individual and global levels) and everything negative that happened in Earth’s history and continues to happen around the globe even today. Living at a higher dimension opens the heart and allows light into the world, thereby transmuting the prevalent darkness into light.

The beings in some other star systems and energetic dimensions are more evolved than beings on Earth. Many Beings from these stars (Starseeds) have volunteered to incarnate on Earth to help usher in the new energies.

The eternal Divine spark that links people to Source is the same in each of us, irrespective of whether we are Starseeds or not. Starseeds are not superior people in the egoistic sense. However, in the cosmic drama designed by Source, Starseeds play the specific role of helping Earth rise up from the third dimension to higher dimensions of light filled existence.

How to Know If You Are a Starseed?

  1. A fascination for stars, planets, outer space etc is one of the most common signs of being a Starseed. As a little girl on holiday with my family, I spent the night at a hotel in a quaint city. The hotel room had a large glass window that allowed me to gaze at the stars while I lay in bed. I remember feeling very peaceful as I looked at the stars in the clear night sky. This memory is etched in my consciousness and even today I can tap into the same feelings of peace and joy I experienced that night several years ago. I also had a strong desire to go back and stay at that hotel so I could gaze at the stars again. So, if you experience a sense of wonder and peace every time you look at the night sky, you just might be a Starseed!
  2. A fascination for science fiction is another sign. The movie Avatar is the perfect example of soulful science fiction. I do not enjoy action in movies and I was not keen to watch Avatar as I learnt that it had plenty of action sequences. After a lot of coaxing, I happened to accompany my folks to the movie Avatar. I was very sure I would not enjoy the movie. But what unfolded during the movie had me glued to my seat. I was truly moved as I watched the celestial body Pandora, the Na’vi beings and the healing tree known as the ‘Tree of Souls.’ And all of this happened at a time when I had given up on Reiki. My soul was stirred and tears of joy streamed down my face (despite all the action and darkness that was portrayed). When we finally walked out of the cinema, I was more excited about the movie than my folks who had convinced me to watch it! None of this seemed significant at that point in time. But some years down the line (after Reiki returned to my life), the moving memories of Avatar and the star gazing childhood experience had me thinking deeper about their significance on my life’s path.
  3. Having a hard time fitting in and longing for the company of people that vibrate on a similar frequency as you. Seeking depth and divinity in relationships.
  4. Aversion to gossip, violence, pettiness, superficiality and anything of a lower frequency.
  5. A deep reverence for nature, plants, animals and for the entire Planet.
  6. Tremendous fascination for places of nature such as forests and mountains and a feeling of being ‘safe and at home’ while in such places.
  7. A deep fascination for topics like astronomy, UFOs, life on other planets and a thirst to learn more about the secrets of the Universe.
  8. A strong need to be at peace and to see peace everywhere in the world.
  9. A natural inner connection with Higher Beings such as Angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters.
  10. And of course, a deep desire to see the world transformed; a desire to be of service, to heal, to teach and to make the world a better place to live in.

Now how is all of this relevant to us as Reiki healers?

First of all, it is a real possibility that many in the Reiki community are Starseeds. Reiki is high vibrational energy of a universal nature that is assisting greatly with the Earth’s shift. One soul at a time, Reiki brings peace and harmony int the lives of people. Reiki is a gift to Earth that some spiritual teachers trace to the star system known as Pleaides. Irrespective of where Reiki has its roots, we all know the power of transformation that Reiki has. Reiki is also one of the easiest and gentlest ways for people to experience the energies of love and light. It is one of the easiest ways for the common man to get started with experiencing himself as an energy being. It is also a guiding light that shows us the path towards ascending to higher dimensions of energy. Just by being a Reiki channel and allowing this energy to flow through us, we bring love and light to the world. By offering Reiki to others or by attuning them to the energy, we help bring in more love and light.

If reading about Starseeds got you feeling excited, it is quite a possibility that you are a Starseed yourself! Often, just this awareness can help you drop several burdens that you may be carrying, as everything about your path becomes crystal clear. You won’t feel like a misfit anymore as you will not feel the need to compare yourself with others or to do things that you don’t feel called to do. Dropping judgement becomes easier. Life becomes more meaningful as you open up to your gifts and talents. And thanks to your shining inner star light, the planet glows a wee bit brighter with every passing day!

    I have recently discovered I am a light worker (Star-seed) I have dreamed that I have come to earth from a distant planet and heal people by just holding my hand over them, since I was in my teens, when I read an article similar to the one above it all clicked into place and the relief was enormous and I was so excited I am now collecting all the information I can and learning to use Reiki. I am from Andromeda galaxy probably Triangulum constellation. Thank you for articles like this it helps us realize we are not alone.

  • kat March 22, 2016, 10:20 am

    Don’t think because you like a movie means you are a starseed, this is much deeper. It’s more about feeling you are a a loner don’t belong here. A feeling of wanting to help others or drawn to animal’s particularly cats. Feeling drawn to the stars many astronomers are Starseeds. Feeling more connected to the earth.

  • Luna SunStar June 13, 2016, 4:40 pm

    Wonderful Article! I KNOW I AM A STARSEED! PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!!!!

  • Chris February 1, 2017, 12:12 pm

    Yep me and my two beautiful children are starseeds. We had avery important mission here which is now completed. I will be joining the source when I return home to Christ. I will be on a council which is oversees animal care on this planet. Blessings to all of you. I am so proud of myself. X

  • Komathy September 23, 2017, 2:37 pm

    Resonates entirely. You have put it out so beautifully. I know that feeling of gazing up at the stars and the longing to be up there. Thank you. And yes I’m a Reiki Channel too!

  • Asha Haslam September 23, 2017, 3:14 pm

    Yep I am a starseed and I have a hard time finding friends here. I am a Reiki Master also. My reiki noguide is wonderful, he makes me feel like I am being watched over – he makes me laugh quite often.
    The reiki has told me my name. Spent my whole life wondering who I am and now know and I know my name also.
    I am from the Pleadies.
    I will never understand people. I more in tune with animals and I am extremely sensitive.

  • Molly November 5, 2017, 8:44 pm

    Thank you Haripriya! I really connected with your words and details of this well written article. It’s the first time I heard the term Starseed. Avatar also had a big impact on me. Please keep sharing.

  • Allison Joy November 24, 2017, 5:13 pm

    Lovely article – thank you. I wonder though if it’s just a fascination for stars and planets. You see, I’ve not had that but I have had a yearning to be somewhere else. All my life I had this nut I don’t know where that ‘other place’ is except it’s like a beautiful desert land. Now whether that’s in the stars it another galaxy, or here on earth, I don’t know. Thank you again, beautiful insight xxx

    I too believe I have ‘alien’ tendencies. However, I never feel like I don’t fit in, rather I feel like an observer of human nature. Human behaviour fascinates me. I have never felt isolated or alone. I have friends (that I don’t see often) that I have known for a long time & stay in touch with. I don’t ‘socialise’ outside my work very often because my work is very social & I connect & converse with many people daily. I love humans with all their faults but I avoid the lower frequencies of the ones that are possibly dangerous. They repel me yet I still feel empathy for them. I am emotionally sensitive & empathic to a very large degree but it’s not debilitating at all. Because all my life, even though I initially experience emotions, rather than let them take me down the wrong path, I have been able to step outside of them & make decisions without their influence. I’m very certain I have been to earth (reincarnated) many many times. So I am very comfortable here. Even though I had an inkling of ‘something’ all my life, it was only 4 years ago when I had a severe episode of depression, that my brain had a total reboot & i restarted my authentic self. I’m the same person but different – calmer, more accepting, tolerant of all people, happy whether in isolation or in company. It’s been a relief, enlightening. I experienced much adversity since this time – have been personally subjected to extremes of human behaviour & life experiences. My previous life was safe & happy while in lived in what I call The Pattern of what people generally think life is about. I have always been regarded highly due to my caring, positive, outgoing nature – a really nice person But since my reboot, there a certain words in my vocabulary & actions that i deem unnecessary to live a human life. More than ever I feel people desire me to be in their space – they are drawn to me. But I don’t feel special – I feel privileged & thankful I give off something that allows people to feel happy & open when the are near me. When allowed, I encourage them to look at different ways to deal with their trials & tribulations – mainly reminding them about their own choice in emotions/actions & guide them to think from a positive source (love) rather than the alternative (fear), in a cerebral psychology way rather than a peace loving guru hippie. The desire to live within, & be subject to human nature has been stronger than finding a niche purpose. However I have been strongly drawn by most natural healing modalities for many years, can feel energy from touching flora & fauna, & am about to embark on Reiki to learn about outgoing energy. Every time I read articles like this I feel immense joy. More than anything I feel that it is very important to know who you are, not by societies standards but emotionally, in a cerebral way. Really look at the conversation or dialogue you have with yourself & begin there. Yes life is about you, but I also feel it is more about how you connect with this world & it’s living inhabitants (human & natural). Humans need to feel & desire peace, & come from a place of love & empathy for the good of the collective & it’s survival. We need to amplify this kind of thinking to evolve to live in a higher frequency. Something is happening in the world. I can feel it too. The dialogue, just like this article, is awakening & intriguing humans to think in alternative ways. Learning something that seems unusual or groundbreaking should never be feared, but encouraged. After all, knowledge of anything – be it factual or about human emotions/behaviour – is empowering.

      Toni, you must be my twin! 😉 I understand everything you have written ,as I felt, went through and experienced the same… reiki will open up even more for you, I hope you can find/have found an excellent teacher who can guide you along your way. Blessings! x

  • Steph Edwards June 27, 2018, 9:59 pm

    Thank you so much. As a child I to always looked out my window at the night sky and still follow the moon cycle as an adult. I also love looking at the sky during the day time which I still do. I alway felt like i was learning to be a human and when I saw a clairvoyant who told me about my dreams as a child with out me informing her and telling me what they meant was along the same lines are your article. thank you.

  • Debra Cisneros, HHP August 17, 2018, 10:05 pm

    Hey, everyone!
    I, too, associate with the article wholeheartedly! I’m the eldest of 8 children__no surprise that I’m the matriarchal, nurturing, caregiving, teacher type! I recall as a very young child I used to ‘astral travel’ in my sleep. Since a teen I became very aware of being ‘protected'(?)__I kind of stayed to myself often, even though I can be very social. Always fascinated with outer space, Star Trek, etc.. When my two sons were very young we watched a Japanimation series, “StarBlazers (the Starship Yamato)”, which I think I was more interested in than they were! At a Star Trek convention (*_*), I bought the first edition of the collector’s comic book series of the same title! Around the same time I became fascinated with energy work, therapeutic touch first. Some years later I purchased a music CD which includes a song that seemed to stand out compared with the rest, “Starchild” by Level 42__SERIOUSLY, that should be (our) theme song!!! 🌠 Several years later, I became a student of massage anallhiatsu then, along with my husband, became a Reiki Master, certified through a friend I met in massage school! My hubby always says, “…we’re the ‘weird bugs’ in the group!” And, yes, people are drawn to us, too!
    But as if all that weren’t enough, check THIS out: on the prone side of my left forearm I have 4 ‘freckle-type’ markings, 3 in an over-arc-ing manner with the 4th a bit below in alignment with the middle of the 3 above__EXACTLY the configuration of Orion’s Belt which represents a star system I cannot recall at the moment! AND, on the prone side of my right upper arm are ‘freckle-type’ markings of the Big Dipper, kind of sideways! 😮 🌌 Whenever I show them to someone I tell them, “…see, I’m not kidding when I say I’m an ALIEN!!!! 😸🌠 (LOL!)
    This article verifies it all__AWESOMENESS!!!

  • Iren-Gala April 23, 2019, 7:28 pm

    Overwhelmed. I was reading this article with tears streaming down. All these attempts to be as everyone else, and deep down understanding I’m not. I’m not even trying to be understood, I’m what I’m. All of these 10 points are mine. I always just wanted to help and not to end up being used. That is what We are attracting, a lot…. I like and believe in concept of Reiki. Also I know, to be able to heal is not about Reiki per se, it’s about your particular energy and intention. Like laying hands, and distant healing too. Different ways… I’m mentioning this, because the healing – physical and emotional is a big part of starseeds. Anyway it was nice to read the comments posted by “distant family” 🙂
