This may be the point where you stop reading this blog because it’s getting too weird. I warn you, it’s only going to get weirder! Only open minded, curious people are encouraged to read further. :-)
During my Soul Retrieval session a couple weeks ago, my healer recognized in me this deep desire to love, inspire, and uplift people around me. She said I was a Starseed. That was the first I had heard of that term.
I later looked it up and the idea of it is strangely exciting to me. According to Wikipedia, “Starseeds are defined as evolved beings from another planet, star system or galaxy who have come to Earth with the specific mission of assisting its people to achieve a higher level of civilization and peace.” In my own words, I define it as a person who’s soul has a rich galactic lineage and has incarnated in many different forms. Some of those may be of different Extra Terrestrial races. Abilities such as clairvoyance, intuition, empathy, telepathy and the like are common among Starseeds.
How do I know it’s for real?
When I looked into it, this concept of Starseeds is relatively new, but popping up all over the world as people who are waking up spiritually on a mass scale. I asked my healer, “How do I know if that is real? Or if I really am a Starseed?” She said, “Ask yourself, you have the answers within.”
I know she’s right, I do have the answers within. But trusting myself is another issue.
I decided to go for a long walk and meditate on that. I would ask myself, “Am I a Starseed?” And I would get waves of shivers throughout my body and a sense of joy and excitement within. Ok, interesting. I asked this Universal Intelligence around me, “How do I know?” And I got the intense feeling, “Trust me, you are. You know it!” I realized I was cracking a smile as something inside was celebrating my new found realization. My walking started to quicken as a feeling of empowerment started coming over me.
Is it just another label?
But here is where my ego comes in. Aren’t I “just making this all up?” It’s not really, real is it? I have no evidence or proof or can’t possibly show someone my Starseed certificate of approval. Isn’t it just another label? You know, like Democrat, Republican, Christian, Atheist, Straight Edge, Punk, etc. When I’ve been shedding my identification with these labels, why would I want to attach another?
Carl Sagan said, “We are made of star stuff.” Which in the grand scheme of things is true, we originated from the big bang and we’re just a fractal of the universe. But our souls are infinite and eternal and have incarnated into many bodies and many lifetimes. It’s absurd to think that we are alone in the universe and I know there is more to life than just what’s on Earth. So it makes logical sense to me that my soul could have incarnated into other physical forms in different parts of the universe. I can’t explain it, but I can feel it.
Signs of a Starseed
I took a few “Starseed Quizzes” online and found that it describes me in a lot of ways. I am naturally drawn to artistic or creative endeavors like art, design, dance, film, etc. I’m a lover, not a fighter – I want to see everyone live in harmony together. I strive to bring people together and inspire them to realize their true inner creative visionary. I feel like I have some sort of mission in life. However, not all the “signs” fit me – such as having a history of paranormal activity, psychic abilities, dreams of distant planets or encounters with ETs and aliens. Not yet at least. Well, ever since my spiritual awakening I’ve been having regular lucid dreams and astral projections. And I’ve been getting more tuned in with my intuition and inner energy.
But, it’s not like I’m going to find an answer on an online quiz, I’m just looking outside myself to validate what I feel inside. I tend to do that when I’m learning something new about myself.
Where has my soul been?
So if my soul has a rich galactic lineage, where has it been? When I read about different Star Systems, I just took notice of the sensations of feeling inside my body. Some of them I was bored reading. Some of them I thought described someone else I knew… However, when I got to the Pleiades, I started feeling the hairs stand up on my arms, chills of energy flowed down my body again and I had a sense of familiarity. It definitely described me.
But I also resonated with several other parts of different star systems… Some of my more evolved spiritual friends told me that we likely come from MANY different star systems and our souls have been a lot of places. It’s all just coming together at this time on Earth because of the big changes happening here.
But is my ego just looking for a cool new identity to attach itself to? As I get more into my spiritual path and let this whole thing called life unfold itself within me without judgement or resistance, I find myself getting more connected to esoteric subject matter. This is no exception. But I also worry that my ego thinks it’s a cool club to join for very special souls. And my ego has a history of wanting to feel special.
Or is my ego the one causing fear, doubt, and worry about something that is true deep within? I am not sure of the answer. I have a good idea that my ego is the one that doesn’t want me to post this because it’s afraid of what other people will think. It’s afraid of being judged or ridiculed or called crazy.
But I do know that I trust my heart.
My heart is telling me to be proud of who I am at this point in my spiritual journey. Excitement, hope, joy, doubt, fear, questioning.
All of it.
Follow the path of love and see where it leads.
