What is a Starseed, Earth Angel or a Lightworker? You may have come across these terms while doing research on Spirituality and awakening. For a lot of people these concepts can be hard to grasp but they are terms used to describe your spiritual purpose and mission on Earth and also where your soul may have originated from. The concept of reincarnation and soul origins sounds “new age”, but these are not new concepts. Many cultures believed that our souls incarnate through many lifetimes through the vehicle of reincarnation in order to learn lessons and evolve. People who identify with the terms Starseeds or Lightworkers feel a strong pull to discover their purpose and often have a unique perspective that doesn’t fit into their upbringing or family of origin.

StarSeeds is the term used to describe people and souls that have originated in other planetary systems and dimensions. This doesn’t mean they are an alien, it means that in addition to earth they may have incarnated in other systems and learned lessons and acquired knowledge there. There are many different types of Starseeds but there are some common defining qualities that most Starseeds share.
Starseeds often feel that they have an urgent purpose to fulfill, but their true purpose is often shielded from them until they receive a wake up call. Being highly sensitive and unique has posed many significant problems for them growing up, often feeling alone or misunderstood in both their families and social groups. Because they didn’t feel as though they belonged or fit in they may have an intense feeling of being an outsider or have adopted an observer role. Compounded by an intense longing to go home despite not knowing where “home” is or where they truly belong. It is common for Starseeds to discover their true nature and purpose with a sudden wake up call or spiritual awakening, that sometimes occurs rapidly and without warning. This sudden heightened awareness can be shocking and confusing to themselves and those around them.
