Starchildren as change artists
Author : Sheryl Gottschall ©
“Starchildren” or Star Seeds” are people who are defined as being of both human and extraterrestrial origin. Dr Richard Boylan states, “The extraterrestrial contribution to the child's makeup may come from reproductive material, from genetic engineering, from biomedical technology, and from telepathic consciousness linking, as well as from directed incarnation of an ET into a human body. (They have) enhanced psychic abilities, ability to harness bioenergetic (chi, prana) energy and earth and cosmic forces to heal, and telepathic and intuitive linking with others and with Source Consciousness.”
Most of the people who consider themselves to be a starchild have felt quite isolated in the world, oftentimes feeling like an odd fit with many failed attempts at being “normal”. They can also feel quite uncomfortable with their human form, incongruent and experience life as a trying journey rather than the fun it should be. All of their experiences and feelings lead them to have the nagging suspicion of being from another world.
Unfortunately, they are not alone as many sensitive people feel very much the same way in the seemingly harsh and soul-less world we live in today. And those who call themselves starchildren are very sensitive it seems, unable to find a place to feel secure and safe while attempting to live a normal life. Added to what the average person deals with, starchildren have to contend with the subtleties of their environment that others are completely unaware of with other people’s moods and emotions affecting them. They can find themselves withdrawing during busy days and easily overwhelmed by things like bright lights, strong smells, coarse fabrics, or sirens close by. Many also avoid large groups of people wanting to stay away from cities, shopping centres and even cinemas. Being highly sensitive in a tough, competitive, dog-eat-dog world, it is easy to understand why starchildren might feel desperate to find a place to belong.
All of this adds to their strong sense of feeling like a square peg attempting to fit into a round hole, so it is understandable why they are eager to find reasons why they feel so different to the rest of humanity and why they do not find it easy to call Earth home. Starchildren also have a strong sense of being sent to Earth to fulfil a mission, except what that mission is, they are usually unsure of. This almost inescapable determined sense of purpose often drives them towards further isolation thus causing even more of a sense of “us” against “them”.
Although starchildren perceive themselves to be quite different to others, and this is quite possibly the case, they can often become distracted by that recognition. Feeling different can become their sole point of focus rather than exploring what they might achieve because of those differences. If more were to do so their role in society might be more clearly identified so they could indeed complete the mission that many feel they are here to fulfil. It might be time for starchildren to accept that they are what they came to “be”, now they must do what they came to do. Change is synonymous with action after all, and if great change has been written into our future then perhaps starchildren do indeed have the role of the “change artist” to fulfil here on Earth.
If that role can be described as communicating messages, inciting a response and designing change within our society then perhaps it is also everyone’s mission to fulfil.
