The great majority of people here on Earth at this time are at a particular stage of soul development where they are learning about the differences between “good” versus “evil”, or to use nonjudgmental terms, positivity versus negativity, in other words, unconditional love and acceptance versus the pursuit of power and control over others. At the end of this stage of development, they will make a choice to completely embrace one of those two ways of being. The Earth is also at a stage of development as a planetary consciousness where learning experiences towards making that choice are possible. So these people are having the experiences that belong to their stage of development, and in that sense they are on a planet where they belong. Their vibrational frequency matches the frequency of the planet, and so you could say that they are “at home” here. Therefore we call them “Earth souls”. Many of them did however come from other planets that are or were at a similar stage as the Earth is now. A few of them actually originated on the Earth, so those few would be the “true” Earth souls in a sense. We still use the term “Earth souls” for all of them because they have all made the Earth their home for the duration of the course of learning that they are able to receive here on Earth at this time.
There is another part of the population here now that has already been through this stage of soul development and graduated from it through making the choice for either positivity or negativity. With very few exceptions, these souls went through this course of learning on other Earth-level planets, and they completed it by participating in a process of graduation to the next level that took place on a planet that also graduated at the same time. This kind of graduation process is called “ascension”.
It happens regularly that some ascended souls choose to incarnate into lifetimes on an unascended planet like the Earth in order to help their unascended brothers and sisters along in their soul development, towards graduation. The Ascended Masters are examples of such souls. Yet something unusual has happened on the Earth in recent history, that is that large numbers of extraterrestrial souls from ascended planets in our local star cluster, in our galaxy, or in nearby galaxies have all chosen to incarnate on the Earth at this time. They now constitute anywhere from 1 to 5 percent of the entire planetary population. This group of souls has come here now literally from the stars to bring their knowledge and experience to the benefit of the Earth souls. This is why we call them “starseeds”.
Since planets can ascend along either positive or negative lines, starseeds can be either positive or negative. That said, although there are a few negative starseeds here, the large group of starseeds incarnating on Earth at this time consists of very positive souls. They have come here in the face of great adversity on a mission to balance out the extremely negatively unbalanced situation that has arisen on the Earth and to help the planet achieve its positive ascension process. For the Earth itself is a positive planetary consciousness and seeks to ascend along positive lines.
There are some other positive souls that have come to Earth at this time to work alongside the positive starseeds on the same mission. They may have come from another dimension, for example an elemental, faerie, or angelic realm. A soul may also have made its home in different kinds of realms throughout its various lifetimes, and/or in realms that combine aspects of different realms, for example the extraterrestrial and the elemental, or other types or realms. In order to include all the different kinds of positive souls that have come to Earth from elsewhere, we use the term “wanderer soul” or simply “wanderer”.
In general, a wanderer is an ascended soul that has “wandered” from its home realm to have more experiences elsewhere and to bring its knowledge and experience for the benefit of others. To keep things simple, you can just remember that all starseeds are wanderers, and that when we use the term starseed, we are just emphasizing the physical extraterrestrial-planetary aspect of the soul’s previous experiences.
Being a starseed or wanderer, or being “already ascended”, an “old soul”, or “spiritually advanced/evolved” does not make one human better or more worthy than any other, in much the same way that older siblings are not better or more worthy than younger ones. Every soul has infinite worth. The Earth souls as a collective have called out for help, whether they are aware of it or not. They are equals, worthy of help from the stars and other dimensions, and that is why so many starseeds and wanderers have come to be here now—to help their brothers and sisters.
Does the idea of starseed or wanderer resonate with you? Are you wondering if you might be a starseed or other kind of wanderer? See part 2 of this blog series, “33 Signs That You May Be a Starseed or Wanderer Soul”.
Since starseeds and other wanderers come from ascended realms where the vibration is much higher than the Earth’s, they often experience life here as very negative or disturbing, and they can have many other difficulties as well. They can end up feeling like they just don’t belong on this planet. Do you feel like you have a hard time living here?
