Are You a Starseed?

Have you ever looked up at the stars and wondered if there is life beyond planet Earth?

Many of us have.

That is why movies and television shows, such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Stargate SG-1 have been big hits, and why agencies like NASA are dedicated to space exploration (although, whether or not NASA is telling us the whole truth is another story!)

Have you ever felt a pull towards the planets (especially a particular one) that is so strong, that you can’t explain or understand it?

Perhaps you’re a Starseed.

What is a Starseed?

A Starseed is an individual whose origins are from another planet, star, galaxy, or solar system. 

Yes, ancestral roots in the galactic, if you will!

Personally, as a Lightworker/Lightbearer, I’ve heard the term, Starseed, along the same lines as Lightworker/Lighbearer, Empath, Forerunner, and other names. However, these terms are not interchangeable.

I didn’t really know what Starseeds were for a long time. And, frankly, with my shallow understanding then that it referred to grey aliens and abductions, I was having none of that!

Life is complicated enough! Thank you very much.

My story

If you read my previous post, which contained a link to my recent (and telling) FaceBook Live event, I’ve learned a lot about myself within the past year, much of which I’d kept under wraps, since it sounded too fantastic, and I was concerned about what other people would say, and how they would judge.

Then, I realized, growing up, I have always been someone who was always “different” for whatever reason, and my mere existence has always been triggering for some. So, it is time for me to accept and embrace that this is who I am! 

Part of my mind-blowing understanding that I’ve learned within the past couple of months was directly connected to cosmic activations instigated by my relationship with my partner, who is my Twin Flame.

I may consider writing a post about Twin Flames in the future. But, for now, I’ll just explain that Twin Flame relationships are sacred relationships where partners often activate higher states of consciousness and abilities in the other, and are divine relationships with a divine purpose. They may find each other in this lifetime, sometimes they don’t.

Whatever the numbers, more and more Twin Flames are finding each other in this lifetime due to the emergence we are having in the collective consciousness towards what is now being called the New Earth. A New Earth being one where we are consciously accelerating our growth as human beings, and ascending together in light.

This is not to say that crime will not exist, or that bad and painful things won’t ever happen. But, our greater awareness on this planet is lifting us out of denser 3D vibration to 5D vibration, which is definitely a good thing!

When I was younger, I was practically obsessed with reading books about ancient Egypt and the different planets.

There was even one book in our family library that I’d frequently read, about what different lifeforms may have looked like on other planets, based on the composition of gases and matter on each planet. I remember looking at some of the illustrations and thinking, “They don’t look like that!”

All this to say that last year, I became aware, through healings, meditations, and interactions with different people (especially with my Twin Flame), that the roots of my existence stemmed not just from my blood lineage of this lifetime, but, going back, back, back, I discovered I had a galactic origin that was very old.

In fact, my relationship with my Twin Flame started when we were binary stars, and later as (nonhuman and very tall) beings who were on this Earth when the planet’s continents were still merged into one. He was Proud Wolf Star and I was Lady LightStar Bringer, and we were leaders of a people who eventually became the Native tribes. We were skilled warriors, but lived in peace for many years. And, my role was to call down the StarNation for help when Mother Gaia needed it.

This all awakened, and more!

To be truthful, the first impression of my physical self, the one very rooted into this Earthly existence, was like, “Oh, fer chrissakes! What’s going on here?”

But, my soul’s first impression was that of my heart flying open, and crying (seemingly out of nowhere) because I’d suddenly remembered, like a vault that had been closed for millennia (though time and space is relative), a family that I’ve missed. A family from another planet.

Sirius, to be exact.

I’d found out I was a Starseed.

Are you a Starseed?

Do you:

  • Sometimes feel like you don’t belong on this planet, somehow? Like you were just dropped here, without a compass?
  • Get drawn to the sky, especially wanting to understand our stars, planets, and galaxy, or get drawn to science fiction?
  • Have strong, heightened intuitive abilities?
  • Feel like an “old soul”, or are often told that you are like one?
  • Feel like there’s a deeper purpose here for you?
  • Have the ability to spiritually accelerate and grow rapidly, as if you’ve done this before?
  • Have dreams, or images during meditation, of places that are not on this Earth?

While many of us may have had a sense of not belonging growing up, this type of not belonging is a bit different, in that it is more than not just fitting in at school or within the family, but is more far-reaching.

And, while many of us may seek our deeper purpose, Starseeds feel it like a deep drive from within, like they were put here on this Earth to accomplish it. Because, in fact, they were.

The purpose of Starseeds

While not everyone is a Starseed, those who are decide to come here, sometimes incarnating many times over on this planet, for the purpose of elevating the planet’s consciousness, sharing their gifts and wisdom to uplift and serve humanity, and seed advanced frequencies of light.

Their DNA is often a hybrid from the planets, star systems, and dimensions they have traveled in past incarnations. (It makes me wonder why, when I got my DNA tested to find out my ancestry from one of those DNA genetic testing and analysis companies, it came back twice as “inconclusive”.)

There is no hierarchy here, however. My purpose to share this article about Starseeds is to help others who identify as such to know that they’re not alone. And that, if they don’t realize they are one yet, to give them a better understanding of what may be going on with themselves.

All Starseeds have a built-in alarm system that awakens them when it’s time for them to activate them from their “business as usual”, to remember who they are, why they decided to come to this planet, and to fulfill the duties they came to Earth to serve, in the first place.

Apparently, my activation happened last year!

As seems to be the case with Starseeds, although my awakening has been recent, my consciousness now shifts rapidly, and I’m able to jump quickly into processing things with more speed.

For example, my meditations, which grew in the beginning of my practice from getting myself grounded and out of monkey mind chatter, to speaking with my Spirit Guides and certain Goddesses and Archangels I connect with regularly, to now branching out and exploring different dimensions, have become ways for me to get clearer on who I am and what I am supposed to be creating in our New Earth in my lifetime.

There is much to learn and uncover. This article is by no means comprehensive, and I will likely add to this experience in future articles.

And, I continue to step into my truth, and to be visible about it, no matter how scary it is, or how I might be judged.

Because, there is strength in numbers. 

As Mulder from the show, “X-Files”, always said, “The truth is out there.”

And, to learn of my expanded blood, chosen, and cosmic families, I am forever grateful.

Does any of this discussion around Starseeds resonate for you?
If so, I’d love to hear about it in the comments, below!

With much love,


P.S. Did you know that you can find me on social media? Follow me on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and YouTube!



The seed for the Mother Gaia Power Portal was planted last year, when I remembered who I was many lifetimes ago (with the help of my Twin Flame) –– Lady LightStar Bringer, conduit between the Star Nation and Mother Gaia. 

Remembering this blew open a whole new world for me, and instantly expanded my soul path in helping to elevate our collective consciousness!

My intuition deepened even further, and my ability to tap into my remembrance as a Starseed exploded. I was catapulted into new ways of knowing at lightning speed!

I’ve been called to share these broadcasts to emit frequencies and transmissions to activate the consciousness on our planet.

Every Monday at 2pm EST, I hold the Mother Gaia Power Portal, a Facebook Live broadcast at the Alcantara Acupuncture & Healing Arts Facebook Page.

I start with a powerful healing energy transmission from the Goddess, then open it up to my teaching for the week. And, if there’s time, I answer viewer questions!

These Goddess transmissions are powerful. Many viewers have remarked how the transmissions have activated deep healing within, even in specific chakras!

I am often on Instagram and Facebook, and give Portal broadcast updates there, if you’d like to connect.

Join us!



My first-ever book, A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Healing Techniques that Balance the Chakras, is hot off the presses (it launched recently on Valentine’s Day, 2/14/2017), and is available to order in paperwork or Kindle version on Amazon here!

In this book, I share some of the knowledge that I’ve only been sharing with my patients in my private practice here in New York City. Meant to be a primer book on chakra healing, chakra newbies can enjoy learning about the chakras in a clear way from a Reiki Master/Teacher who’s been practicing Reiki for 12 years, and those with advanced knowledge can use this book as a refresher or reference.

I am incredibly grateful that I get to share this book with you! It has truly been a work of love. <3

Order my book on Amazon >> here <<, and if you’ve already read it, please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon. I’d love to hear what you think!

    Take 2! Not sure if my last comment posted.

    I LOVE this article and the fact that you’re sharing this message of divine origins and discovery with all of us. It’s brave and so, so important.

    For several years, I’ve known that my purpose on this planet is to help people evolve to their next level of consciousness. And I’ve been obsessed with the paranormal (especially auras, mysterious creatures, and plant energies) since I was a child. The fact that you quoted Mulder makes my heart SING.

    I don’t know if I’m a Starseed, but I do know that whatever vein you’re exploring is deep and powerful. <3

      Hi Liz!

      So great to see you here! Nope, I didn’t see your last comment, but I’m glad I got this one.

      I SO appreciate your comment and feedback on this article! I have always loved you, your work, and your sass, so it means a lot to hear what you have to say, and to have you acknowledge that it took courage to share (because I truly needed to summon it!)

      Yes, I’ve loved the paranormal, too, since I was a child! LOL, I know how much you love Mulder. Glad you saw my little homage.

      In light,

    My awakening started last october 11.11 every am and night up until today even an occasional 444. I began to ascend then felt a plateu…idk but ive noticed intense ringing in my ears and feeling like something enters the room with me.. it feels really intense sometimes just last night i couldn’t bare the pressue n and ringing n my ears i simply said..”its really intense please tone it down” and it did. I always “felt” a presence always been fascinated with paranormal even as a child and i have had visions of healing people and always felt out of place. I began to feel symptoms of Acension and it stopped how do i get back? I was in such bliss and peace. And what about that prescence? I used to be scared but last night i stayed calm and asked it to tone it down. But what do u think it is?

    Only my angels know how I found your website. And I thank them! I love your writings…..Thank YOU.
    From an early age, I felt like a square peg on this round-holed planet. Even so, I completely love it here…..though Earth is dense (in many ways)! I learned several years ago that I, too, am from Sirius. That knowledge confirmed so many things, situations, ideas, downloads, feelings and events. I came here with, and, have managed to find several “tribe” members……that helps the dual-edged sword of loneliness and longing-ness that I feel on occasion. However, I truly love the contrast of this planet, and, the toolbox available to us during this lifetime has been inspirational in furthering my spiritual gifts. Thank you for addressing this topic so eloquently!
    Be Well,

      Hi Maria,

      I hear you on the dual-edged sword effect you describe, as that is common for star seeds to have. Creating community and awareness is helpful for that. Yes, once we awaken into our awareness as star seeds, things definitely get more exciting! 😉 I’m so glad you’ve found my articles helpful, my Sirian SiSTAR.

    Hello, Every one calls me “T” –
    I wanted to let you know that I came across your website while researching my latest interest. I have always felt a strong pull to the Supernatural and paranormal. Since I was 7, I have never dreamed of my own race and I have good communication with at least 4 different entities. I find it strange, most people would tell you that you have an ailment. Something that they like to say is that you are not right in the head, and need to be either locked away for, or be on medications. But I knew from the start I was different. The visions, the communications, the places and images of other places is unreal. I don’t know when my Ascension was. All I know is that I have always been this way… I could always communicate, not as well as I can now of course. I was always seeing places not of Earth, and the deep urge to protect others, unconditionally… I have never been able to forget that feeling. I have massive intuition, and I am always searching the skies, day or night, it matters not to me. I as still searching. I just wanted to say thank you for this article. I never believed myself mentally ill and that these things are real. It is good to know I am not the only one.

      Hello T,

      Thanks for your comment! I’m glad you found my article helpful. I’m glad you held steadfast to knowing who you really are, and for acknowledging that your memories are real. As we all continue our Ascension (we are all collectively ascending, as it’s a journey, not an event), no doubt many star seeds will continue to awaken into their higher purpose. You are certainly not alone!
