Starseed Awakening: Everything you need to know (complete guide)

You’ve heard of starseeds already, and you can identify with it to an extent. But you’re not quite clear yet on what exactly this means.

Could you be a starseed? Are the strange feelings and changes you’ve been experiencing a sign of awakening? What are the stages of a starseed awakening?

You’ll find the answer to this and all your other starseed questions in this article.

Read on to find out!

What is a starseed?

First off, what is this thing called a starseed?

Basically, a starseed is a human who has been sent by their soul to Earth to help awaken the planet and humanity.

They are highly spiritual people who are born with the soul’s knowledge, wisdom and guidance in order to help others on Earth, whether that’s through spiritual teachings, healing or by simply being a light in the world.

They’re not here to save anyone – they’re here to help. They’re here to wake up your mind so that you can wake up your body, and then your spirit will follow suit.

How does a starseed awaken?

If you feel strongly identified with the above, there’s a good chance you might be a starseed!

But wait — there’s one important thing.

Just because you think you’re a starseed, doesn’t automatically awaken your purpose and divine power. To make this happen, you have to recognize the symptoms of an awakening and guide yourself through the stages.

Let’s have a look at what both of these are.

12 starseed awakening symptoms

1) You feel intense energy

When a starseed awakens, your both must adjust to a higher vibration. This causes intense energy to be pushed to the surface.

When you first begin to feel the energy coming from within, you might not be able to control it.

You might feel like your body is being used as a means of expression for your soul and you’ll start to feel different sensations that you’ve never felt before.

2) You start to see more clearly into the universe

The world around you starts to become more vivid and clear, and you can see things that are normally invisible in your life.

For example, you might see that there’s something missing in your life, or that something has been going on behind the scenes, but you just couldn’t see it before.

This is where clairvoyance comes into play – seeing things that are normally unseen by the naked eye.

It’s a very powerful ability!

3) A gifted advisor confirms it

The symptoms above and below will give you a good idea about your starseed awakening. But a surefire sign of your inner powers is to speak with a real advisor.

The problem is finding someone you can trust.

There’s an abundance of fake “experts” out there, but very few genuine advisors who can offer practical life advice.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. They provided me with a unique insight into where my path in life, including my spiritual purpose.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable network of gifted advisors out there.

Not only will a genuine advisor tell you if you’re a starseed, but they can lay out your spiritual path as well.

4) You start seeing signs from the universe

As the starseed within you starts to awaken, you’ll start to feel a stronger connection with the universe.

You’ll begin seeing signs from the universe that are meant for you, but might not be obvious at first. These might include angel numbers, synchronicities, or clairvoyant dreams.

This is when you’ll begin feeling like your life is being guided by something bigger than yourself, and that there’s a higher purpose behind everything.

5) You feel spiritually disoriented

When a starseed awakens, it’s likely that you’ll feel spiritually disoriented. This is because your soul is moving into higher realms.

You’re thrown off the direction you thought you were going in. But don’t worry!

This is the path you were always meant to go on. You’ll adjust and find a sense of grounding sooner than you think.

6) Unusual aches and pains throughout your body

Here’s another symptom of a starseed awakening:

You feel unusual aches, pains, or spasms throughout your body. Yet when you go see the doctor about it, they can’t find anything wrong!

That’s because the cause for this symptom is not in the physical world.

Your soul is purifying and releasing blocked energy. This vibrates in the higher dimension, but it resonates in the 3D world too. This causes the cells in your body to vibrate too and can be manifested with physical symptoms of pain and spasms.

7) You start wondering about your purpose

At some point, you’ll start having serious questions about your purpose in life and what direction you’re headed in.

This is one of the key symptoms of a starseed awakening. And answering these questions is perhaps the most important key to unlocking your powers.

So ask yourself:

What is your purpose is right now?

In fact, this is a question everyone struggles with, starseeds or not. But it will be that much harder for you to answer, because your purpose is divine.

Thankfully, there’s a very easy way to get guidance.

I learned about the power of purpose from watching Ideapod co-founder Justin Brown’s video on the hidden trap of improving yourself.

Justin used to be addicted to the self-help industry and New Age gurus just like me. They sold him on visualization and positive thinking. It left him lost and confused.

That’s why he traveled to Brazil to meet the renowned shaman Rudá Iandê, who taught him a life-changing new way to find your purpose and use it to transform your life and everything around you.

After watching the video, I discovered my purpose in life and it’s no exaggeration to say it was a turning point in my life.

I can honestly say that this new way of finding success by finding your purpose actually helped me to define my spiritual path.

8) You feel anxiety, depression or stress

As a starseed who’s awakening, you might start to feel anxiety, depression or stress.


Because you’re awakening on a new level, and you’re now starting to realize that everything in your life is not as it seems.

You’re beginning to see the bigger picture, and you might be worried about what’s going to happen next.

But don’t worry! Your soul knows what it’s doing, and there’s nothing to worry about! It just needs time to figure things out on its own.

Of course, you shouldn’t ignore other possible causes for anxiety or depression. Make sure to see a licensed doctor or therapist first.

9) You experience flu-like symptoms

A starseed awakening can also cause flu-like symptoms.

These might include feeling feverish, chills, fatigue, muscle aches and pains, and headaches. This is because your soul is purifying and releasing blocked energy.

The only way to get rid of the symptoms, is to let your body rest and heal.

You’ll feel better after a few days.

10) You experience visual hallucinations or illusions

Another symptom of a starseed awakening is experiencing visual hallucinations or illusions. This can include seeing auras, hearing voices, and having visions.

But don’t worry! This is all part of the process.

Your soul is experiencing higher dimensions, and it’s creating a new way to perceive reality.

The symptoms are not harmful. In fact, they may help guide you towards your full awakening. Make sure to keep an open mind as you go through these experiences.

11) You feel unusual urges to explore your body in new ways

A starseed awakening can also cause unusual urges or urges to explore your body in new ways.

This might include:

  • Wanting to touch your own body or other people’s bodies
  • Wanting to explore your own energy in new ways, like meditation or chakra healing
  • Wanting to touch or feel something that isn’t there (like a “vibrating” light)

These are all natural urges that come from being a starseed.

You’re awakening on a new level, and your intuition is pulling you to explore so that you get closer to it.

12) You feel like you’re being pulled away from things that used to make you happy or fulfilled

You might start feeling like you’re being pulled away from things that used to make you happy or fulfilled. This could be anything from relationships, jobs, hobbies or pastimes.

For example, you might stop wanting to exercise or eat certain foods. It could also mean not being interested in your career anymore.

It’s all part of the process of awakening on a new level, and your soul is showing you that something new is happening.

The 5 stages of starseed awakening

The symptoms above will give you a good idea if you’re a starseed awakening.

But feeling the symptoms doesn’t automatically mean you’ll awaken.

It happens in stages!

You need to understand what these are in order to help your soul work through them towards the awakening.

Here are the stages below.

1) You feel a life crisis

When you first start feeling symptoms of your starseed awakening, it’s likely during a life crisis.

You might feel like you’re losing control of your life or that things are completely out of your hands. You’ll find yourself often feeling annoyed, exhausted, or spiritually lost.

You start to wonder: is this all there is to life?

If your life hasn’t gone through a big change yet, it will very soon. This is the catalyst that you need to delve deeper into your soul and allow yourself to enter a higher dimension and frequency.

2) You experience a period of confusion and uncertainty

After a life crisis, you reach stage 2 of the starseed awakening. Here, you’ll experience confusion and uncertainty.

You start to question things you took at face value before, and some of your old beliefs don’t resonate with you anymore.

You’ll even start to wonder how much of the reality you perceive is actually real.

The truth is, most of it what we call reality is simply a construction of the mind. The good news?

You have the power to change it.

I learned this (and much more) from the world-renowned shaman Rudá Iandé. In this excellent free video, Rudá explains how you can lift the mental chains and get back to the core of your being.

A word of caution – Rudá isn’t your typical shaman.

He doesn’t bother will false promises or fake positivity.

Instead, he’s going to force you to look inwards. You’re going to face the real you and get to know that person much better. This isn’t always pretty, but it is powerful.

So if you’re ready to shed the reality forced onto you and create your own, check out his excellent advice below.

Here’s a link to the free video again.

3) Take some time to slow down and reflect

At this stage in the awakening, you may feel like you’re on a rollercoaster.

You’re being pulled in different directions and have a difficult time making up your mind. This is where you’ll need to take the reins and start actively guiding the starseed awakening process.

It’s very simple:

Just take some time to slow down and reflect.

It’s a good idea to spend time with yourself, doing the things that used to make you happy or fulfilled.

It’s also important to see what makes you feel good or fulfilled now and what doesn’t anymore. This will help you to get clear about your needs and wants when going forward.

4) Get more spiritual

At stage 4 of your awakening, you’ll want to start exploring the spiritual side of life more.

You’ll naturally feel drawn towards something, but you should actively seek out opportunities as well.

For example, you can try meditation, reading spiritual books, or listening to spiritual music. You can even take part in a spiritual retreat or a workshop, or start visiting spiritual places.

Just make sure you don’t get too carried away. You don’t want to become locked into a religion or belief system.

Instead, you want to find something that resonates with you and makes your heart sing.

5) You may experience a feeling of separation from the old world and its rules

In stage 5 of your awakening, you may feel like you’re on a different planet than everyone else.

You might feel very detached from the old world and its rules. You’ll notice this brings up a range of emotions.

On one hand, it might feel frightening as you’re not grounded in anything anymore. On the other, it’s incredibly liberating!

You’re no longer tethered to earthly attachments, and you’re free to explore your spiritual calling.

Once you shed the superficial self, you’ll become connected to the divine. Then you can cleanse your soul after your spiritual awakening tap into your divine power.

How to activate your starseed power

There’s no doubt that the starseed awakening process is incredibly exciting. But it can also be slow and at times, frustrating.

Here are 3 great tips you can use to help activate your spiritual gifts.

1) Seek out your purpose

Your starseed awakening is like a seed that you planted in the ground. Now it’s time to take care of it!

This means you need to do your best to understand what your divine purpose is.

You’ll want to ask yourself this question: “What is my purpose in life?”

Don’t be afraid to try out new things and adjust course as you discover new directions where you feel pulled. This will require you to shed some of your preconceptions and open your mind fully to any possibilities.

It’s not important what others think about your purpose either, just find out what truly makes you feel fulfilled and happy.

If you want more clarity on this, I’d suggest watching Ideapod co-founder Justin Brown’s video on the hidden trap of improving yourself.

I mentioned it earlier. It marked a turning point in my life and there’s no doubt in my mind that it helped me to define my purpose and spiritual path.

So instead of trying to figure out your purpose on your own, watch this video to find the answers you’re looking for.

2) Step out of your comfort zone

You’ll need to take some risks in order to activate your starseed power. This is because your starseed awakening is about reaching a new level of consciousness.

It’s not about doing things that tickle your fancy, but doing things that you’ve never done before.

Some of these things will inevitably feel strange, or well, uncomfortable! But there is no spiritual growth without discomfort.

Explore this new feeling with genuine curiosity, and it will pass very soon.

3) Receive the help of others (when you need it)

The starseed awakening process can be a bit overwhelming at times.

You’ll have many different emotions attached to this new state of consciousness that’s being born inside you.

This is normal and healthy too. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed, it may be helpful to talk with someone who can listen to your experience and help guide you in the right direction.

This could be someone like a teacher or mentor, or even a friend or loved one who has had similar experiences before.

But if you want the most clarity on this, I’d suggest speaking to a gifted advisor at Psychic Source.

As mentioned earlier, they have helped me out in the past and I’ve always found them honest and compassionate in their readings.

So instead of wondering about your spiritual path, speak to an advisor who’ll give you guidance and support.
