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?
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!
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.
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.
Aversion to gossip, violence, pettiness, superficiality and anything of a lower frequency.
A deep reverence for nature, plants, animals and for the entire Planet.
Tremendous fascination for places of nature such as forests and mountains and a feeling of being ‘safe and at home’ while in such places.
A deep fascination for topics like astronomy, UFOs, life on other planets and a thirst to learn more about the secrets of the Universe.
A strong need to be at peace and to see peace everywhere in the world.
A natural inner connection with Higher Beings such as Angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters.
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!
