Over the last few years, I have seen a lot of discussions online about Star Seed people or Star people. As a spiritual person who loves anything cosmic and extraterrestrial, I was pretty interested in what being a Star Seed is all about.
After researching the term, I discovered that being a Star Seed means that you are an extraterrestrial soul who has come to Earth to help humanity.
Okay, this does sound a little bit out there. But is there something to it? Let’s dive into the Star Seed phenomenon and discover what it means for our spiritual journey.

Star Seed Meaning
I have only been aware of Star Seeds recently, as it is all over social media right now, but the term actually goes back to the 1970s. The writer Brad Stieger discussed the phenomenon in his book Gods of Aquarius. He argued that some people were descendants of aliens, and these were Star Seeds.
For Stieger, Star Seeds are ‘humans who come from a special gene pool linked to visits by extraterrestrials‘. I won’t lie; this makes me feel a bit icky. The idea that certain people have ‘special’ genes seems pretty problematic.
Other definitions of the term propose that they aren’t just descendants of aliens but alien souls that have been reincarnated in human bodies. This sets them apart from ‘Earth souls,’ who, you guessed it, are souls from Earth.
Maybe it is the dreamer in me, but I quite like the idea of souls coming from other planets and dimensions. I mean, it kind of makes sense, right? If we believe in the idea of a soul, it isn’t a great leap to say that they come from all over. Plus, there is so much we don’t know about the world, and energy may come elsewhere from the universe to our planet.
Star Seed Traits
So, we know that Star Seeds are people with souls from outer space, but how does that influence their interaction with the world? Let’s go through some of the traits that Star Seeds have. Do you relate to any of them?
A Feeling of Misplacement
It is said that Star Seeds have always felt a bit out of place on planet Earth. You may feel as if you don’t fit in and can’t really connect with others. This is because your home is not Earth but out in space somewhere!
Because of this, Star Seeds have a yearning to find their true home, wherever this may be. This can make life difficult for them, as they will never really get home while they are in their physical body. However, they learn how to live and thrive on Earth, using their powers to help others and develop their spiritual awareness.
Star Seeds have a strong connection to higher realms of existence, which means that they will often have psychic abilities. They may have spiritual gifts such as clairvoyance or clairaudience, and this can be pretty overwhelming for them. Psychic abilities are often confusing and stressful. However, Star Seeds usually know that it is a gift from the universe and work with their abilities to better their lives and the lives of those around them.
Because of these abilities, Star Seeds will sometimes distance themselves from other people, as they think that others may not ‘get‘ them. They can read and understand others deeply and need time to recharge themselves.
An Interest in the Supernatural or Extraterrestrial
Star Seeds are drawn to anything extraterrestrial or supernatural, feeling pulled to the unknown of the world. They love sitting down under the night sky to watch the stars and meteors above them, as this gives them a sense of belonging.
Star Seeds will lap up any information about space and other dimensions, as they know that learning about them brings them closer to their truth.
A Desire to Help
Many Star Seeds have a strong desire to help humanity and feel as if they have been put on Earth for a purpose. They find it difficult to sit back and watch injustices being done and feel the pain of others deeply.
Because of this, many Star Seeds are activists who work to change the world. They will look at what they can do to make the world a better place and align themselves with their beliefs. Many Star Seeds believe that they are here to serve humanity and will try to do their best to spread their wisdom and help.
Star Seed Vs. Lightworker
You may be seeing some similarities between Star Seeds and Lightworkers. Both soul types are on Earth to help others and spread light. However, there are certain distinctions that set them apart.
Lightworkers have awakened souls and devote their lives to spreading light in the universe. They want to make the world a brighter place and light up the dark parts. They focus on healing themselves and others and often have psychic powers.
Lightworkers are old Earth souls, unlike Star Seeds, whose souls are from outer space. However, because of their similarities, Lightworkers and Star Seeds often connect on a deep level and find comfort in one another.
Are Star Seeds Real?
The concept of Star Seeds is interesting, and I believe it can help us on our spiritual journey. However, whether the phenomenon is real is unknown. Critics of the theory argue that it is pseudoscience and merely people projecting their feelings of misplacement or anxiety onto a phenomenon that sounds cool.
There are a few ways we can interpret the Star Seed idea, and one is to interpret it as a metaphor. Star Seeds are souls from outer space, and we can understand this as representing the connectedness we have with the universe.
Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘We are all made of stardust’? Well, this is actually true! According to the Natural History Museum, ‘nearly all the elements in the human body were made in a star, and many have come through several supernovas.’
The idea of Star Seeds reminds us that our souls and bodies existed long before the life we are living right now and will do long after it ends. We are connected to everything in nature and should live our lives with respect and love for everything around us.
We are all here for a reason, and the Star Seed theory reminds us of this. Perhaps we are all Star Seeds in our own way, and we can connect with the theory to guide us forward.
How To Awaken and Connect With Your Star Seed Self
Whatever way you interpret the idea of Star Seeds, it can help you move forward on your true path in life. Perhaps you do think that you are a soul from outer space, and that is totally fine! Or, maybe you like to connect with the theory of Star Seeds in a metaphorical way to enhance your spiritual growth and connection with the universe.
So, how can you awaken and connect with your Star Seed self?
Discover Your Inner Calling
Star Seeds believe they are here on Earth for a purpose, and the theory asks us to discover our inner calling by connecting with our souls.
Here are some ways to connect with your soul and discover your purpose in life:
- Journalling: Use prompts such as, ‘My soul is calling me to…‘ in your journal and free-write, exploring what comes out of your subconsciousness.
- Go out in nature and pay attention to how the energy that surrounds you.
- Practice meditation daily.
- Track signs from the universe, such as angel numbers.
- Listen to music and read poetry, allowing the energy to flow through you.
- Pray to your spirit guides.
- Acknowledge your past and the Karmic cycle.
It is important to remember that discovering your inner calling is a journey. You won’t discover it overnight, and your understanding of it may change over time.
Develop Your Psychic Powers
Many Star Seeds have natural psychic powers, and working with them will help you awaken your Star Seed self. You may receive messages from souls or spirit guides, or perhaps you can communicate with others without talking to them.
There are various ways you can develop your psychic abilities, such as the following:
- Meditate regularly. This helps you to connect with your soul and body and listen to your inner voice.
- Keep a journal where you write down any time you experience your psychic ability.
- Pay attention to your dreams and study dream interpretation. A dream journal will help you unlock the hidden messages within your dreams.
- Work with divination tools like Tarot cards, Runes, and pendulums.
Connect With Mother Nature
The theory also asks us to ground ourselves in the here and now, even if we sometimes feel distant from the planet. Star Seeds often feel a bit out of place, so it is important to connect with Earth and mother nature to find your place in the world.
Deepening your connection with mother nature helps you awaken your soul and stay grounded. However, many of us forget to take the time out of our hectic lives to do this.
Here are some ways to connect with mother nature:
- Go walking in the countryside.
- Spend time forest bathing.
- Plant a garden.
- Place flowers around your home.
- Swim in the ocean.
- Work with crystals.
- Celebrate the seasons and the Wheel of the Year.
Unblock Your Crown Chakra
The Star Seed theory highlights universal consciousness and interconnectedness. The Crown Chakra, located at the top of our heads, connects us with this universal consciousness and helps us develop our spiritual awareness. However, many of us go through life with a blocked Crown Chakra, never knowing what it feels like for it to be open.
To awaken your inner Star Seed, it is essential to unblock your Crown Chakra. Doing so will enhance your understanding of who you are and connect with the universe.
Opening up your Crown Chakra takes time, but here are some ways to help heal and unlock this Chakra:
- Meditation: Use guided Crown Chakra meditations.
- Yoga: Certain poses, such as Savasana and Sasangasana, moves energy into the Crown Chakra.
- Affirmations: Repeat Crown Chakra affirmations, such as ‘I am deeply connected to the universe,‘ or a higher power guides me.’
- Crystals: Place Crown Chakra crystals onto this energy point. Amethyst, Clear Quartz, and Selenite are some common crystals that harmonize with the Crown Chakra.
