Have you ever heard the term “starseed” or “wanderer”?
Most people on Earth began their soul’s existence here and have had many lives on this planet. These people are generally fairly comfortable here. Yet some began their existence on another planet and have had lives elsewhere, possibly many lives on multiple other planets, in addition to the lives they’ve had on Earth. These people are what we would call starseeds. A starseed is a person whose soul originated on another planet in the physical universe, in this galaxy or in another one.
Starseeds are a major example of what are called wanderer souls or wanderers. A wanderer is a soul that has “wandered” from its place of origin to have more experiences elsewhere. We use the term starseed when the place of origin is another planet or location in our physical universe. Yet there are many other dimensional realms that are what we would call “outside” of the physical universe. For example, a soul may have wandered from an elemental realm, an angelic realm, or from the faerie dimension, to incarnate here on the physical Earth plane. These are just a few known examples, and it seems likely that there are many more.
Starseeds or wanderers generally feel like they just don’t belong on this planet. Do you feel like you just don’t understand humans? Here are 11 signs that you might be a starseed or a wanderer.
1. You prefer the company of animals over humans. Let’s face it, sometimes animals seem to have more sense than people. Animals are pretty straightforward about their intentions, whereas people can be deceptive, manipulative and sometimes downright mean. If you are around negative people most of the time, it’s no wonder why you might feel compelled to stay home with your pet rather than deal with the world out there.
2. You feel a strong love for the planet. Litter, pollution, animal suffering, dirty oceans, fear of climate change, the list is long. Your awareness that it is mostly because of humanity’s destructiveness that this planet is not thriving like it could be is because, where you come from, these problems were solved a long time ago.
3. You feel like there’s a better way to solve the problems of Earth and it doesn’t make sense to you that someone hasn’t figured them out yet. Again, you only know this because where you come from, people have been living in harmony with nature for aeons.
4. You believe in conspiracy theories. Somewhere deep inside you, whether you admit it to anyone else or not, you know. Aliens, government corruption, hidden agendas, controlled narrative. It’s all true. They are keeping many secrets.
5. You feel like plants, animals and even crystals have a consciousness. You can feel the energy of things. Do you like hugging trees? Do you feel compassion for plants? Do you feel like stones are alive somehow? Do you feel like everything alive deserves love and respect? Are you already or have you been thinking of becoming vegetarian or vegan because it feels like the ethical thing to do? Or because the energy of meat just doesn’t sit right with you?
6. You have anxiety, depression or another mental illness. Considering that you come from a much higher-vibrational realm than this one, so much so that earth dwellers would probably think you were an angel or god-like if they could see your true manifestation of yourself, it’s no wonder that putting on a 3D body (meat suit) can sometimes feel like torture. You have literally condescended to be here. That doesn’t mean you have a free pass to be condescending, but take it easy on others and on yourself. You’ve forgotten how powerful you are. You’re so powerful that you thought it would be a good idea to forget about your divinity so you could come here and do some good for the planet. You have a mission. You are a badass for accepting this assignment. Your high sensitivity can feel like both a gift and a curse. When you learn to trust your inner knowing and when you become skilled at managing your own energy, life will be much easier. Don’t be too hard on yourself. This is hard work.
7. You feel like your dreams have meaning. You probably also believe in seeing signs and that coincidence is meaningful. You’re right! This is the higher part of yourself that you have forgotten trying to guide you where your soul wants to go. When you follow your feelings and inner knowings, you are heading in the right direction. Goosebumps are a sign felt by many when hearing truth. You may get the tingles, or you may experience a different sign. Everyone is unique!
8. You have trouble with authority. Laws and rules of this planet may sometimes seem absurd. Many of them are, but we have to be careful to stay out of trouble. Use discernment when it comes to following the rules. Some laws are meant to keep everyone safe. Violating certain rules may be like giving a permission slip to the universe to cause you to suffer through a particular lesson. It’s better to use your power of positive manifestation whenever you’re in a situation that tempts you to break the laws of the land. Some are more flexible than others. Bend with caution.
9. You love to travel and desire to see the world. Staying in one place seems boring whereas moving and exploring calls to you. Many starseeds have wanderlust.
10. You have suffered adversity since childhood. Part of your mission in coming to this planet was to take a bad situation and absorb all the pain and turn it into love and acceptance. It’s a noble mission and takes a strong soul to do it. Thank you for accepting the suffering that was necessary for you to proceed on your mission. The planet and its inhabitants will suffer less because of what you’ve endured. By not passing on your own childhood abuse, neglect, abandonment, etc., you have broken the karmic cycle. We won’t be able to say just how valuable this service you have provided is until the end of this mission, but you can be sure that you knew when you chose this life that it was going to make a difference.
11. People have always called you an “old soul”. They say that you are wise beyond your years because you carry lifetimes of experience in your soul. You may be young or old but your soul is ancient in comparison. The best thing you can do for yourself is to trust your inner knowing.
Living on this planet may at times feel like you’re a fish out of water. We may feel like quitting but we just can’t. It feels like we have some kind of mission to accomplish. You are probably a starseed. You are not alone. There are many of us here, and we keep coming–by now our numbers are in the hundreds of millions at least! Some of us have been here for a long time in this life and most of us have been here for many lifetimes. Keep looking for your tribe. If you feel lonely and misunderstood, please know that your soul probably chose to incarnate around lots of negative people and suffering in order to remember that you have a higher purpose here. In order to become happy you have to love yourself, know your worth and get away from your negative situation before you get any kind of lasting relief. You are that strong of a soul!
These are only a few of the things that may indicate that your soul is not of this planet. There are many more starseed traits and possible signs of being a starseed.
