25+ Signs of Starseeds Indigo Children: Are You One of Them?

Have you ever wondered whether you’re from this planet? Have you ever thought perhaps you came from somewhere else? There are thousands of people who feel this exact way. Maybe you’ve spent your entire life gazing up at the stars, imagining and dreaming of all of the infinite possibilities that this universe holds. Maybe you’ve had dreams of living on other planets, in other solar systems entirely. Maybe…just maybe…you are a starseed. Here’s 25 signs you’re a starseed OR indigo child.

Is your soul from another dimension? Are you a starseed? Are you one of the indigo children?
If you are a starseed, you are from another planet or possibly another dimension. There will be signs you are a starseed.

Soul Origins from Other Solar Systems

Since the 12/21/12 shift, hundreds of people have awakened to their true identities - to their true soul origins. Many of us believed that Earth was all alone in the Universe as far as intelligent life. How wrong we all were and so many of us are actually from other planets with intelligent life! Now we are finding that many souls on Earth are from other dimensions and other planets.

What is a Starseed?

Starseeds are souls who are from other solar systems or star constellations. They have incarnated in human bodies to live on earth and fulfill a divine mission - to aid in the ascension of the planet and its inhabitants. "How do you not know that there are other planets in this Universe with intelligent life?" is a question that starseeds ask when people question their beliefs. In addition to having souls incarnating from other places in the Universe, there are also souls who are hybrid-souls, if you will. This means that their soul's energy is made up of various soul origins. Check out to learn more about soul origins.

"There are about a hundred billion sun-like stars within the Milky Way," said study co-author Joe Catanzarite, a scientist with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). "Two percent of those might have Earth analogs, so you have two billion Earth analog planets in the galaxy," he added. "Then you start thinking about other galaxies. There are something like 50 billion, and if each one has two billion Earthlike planets, it's mind boggling." So with how unbelievably large the Universe is, how can one deny the idea of intelligent life on other planets? There is intelligent life. And this is where starseeds come from.

Signs You’re An Indigo Child

Indigo children are similar to starseeds, and sometimes a starseed can also be an indigo child and vice versa. But just because you’re an indigo child doesn’t mean you’re also a starseed. The indigo children rode the indigo ray to incarnate on earth some time between the 1970’s and 1990’s. Though they have been here before in other centuries. Indigo children are born with indigo-colored auras. Though keep in mind, an indigo can be born into any body of any color, shape, or size.

Here are some of the common indigo adults physical characteristics (without medical reason for these things):

  • large, round or almond-shaped eyes that seemingly suck you in
  • larger heads
  • stomach illnesses and irritabilities
  • frequent headaches
  • intense allergies
  • hypersensitive to drugs and alcohol
  • lower body temperature
  • low blood pressure
  • hypersensitivity to lights, sounds, etc.

Here are the indigo children mental and emotional characteristics:

  • a rebellious nature from a young age – couldn’t tolerate authority without a clear reason
  • doesn’t believe in everything they are told; has to find things out on their own
  • always questioning the world around them
  • feels its their mission to help change society – politics, religion, medical field and corporate world
  • interested in eating healthy foods from the earth; many are vegetarian and vegan
  • have a hard time controlling their temper
  • highly creative people with an affinity for art, literature, travel, cooking, and more
  • intuitive and/or psychic with the 5 clairs
  • highly spiritual people

  • know they “came here for a reason” from a young age
  • don’t follow the rules unless they agree with them
  • drawn to Mother Earth but also interested in the stars

    All of my dreams are incredibly short but I get them every night. Often times they are just flashes. In my dreams, I see ghosts, see auras, smell ghosts, etc, I have the 5 Clairs. And I do have them… However. It is only for certain instants. I can sense them, always, and smell them, but everything else is there one second, gone the next. Could that mean anything? I constantly get angel number 2, if that has anything to do with it.

    I’ve always been fascinated by the heavens, staring up at the Pleiades, even though they are sometimes so faintly in the distance. Since I’ve learned about the wonderful people from there, I’ve held in my heart there is where I want to go when I make the transition from this world to the next. It is a world of pure love and benevolence beyond the Earth. I’ve never felt like I belonged here, and my mission is to help trapped souls. I don’t agree that there is such thing as a perfect religion, but am married to a narrow-minded Catholic, so I am restrained from following my true path completely. Jesus is very real, and God does not condemn those who are good — despite what they teach in Church, and people who aren’t Christian, but live just like one, are also saved from Hell, contrary to what die-hards would argue. I love nature and my brothers and sisters, and have no use for hateful people or the illogical beliefs of the atheists. I am a hugger, and wish I was able to heal people who are physically ill. I cannot help but offer counsel to those in need of it, and am very outgoing. I came across this site when I was searching to see if Starseeds get gray hair or not, as I am beyond the age for graying, and despite some GOLD hair, I have none. I don’t WANT gray hair, and always preferred a youthful appearance, even in family and friends. (Sounds vain, but am very low maintenance, wear no makeup). Was only wondering. Am supposedly psychic, but my ability is limited to sensing spirits, and sending them to the Light. I freaked out a little when I woke up after a night’s sleep, and remembered feeling an intense male energy — he must have been very important in his lifetime — and he reached my “radio” signal in my subconscious while I was deep asleep, and I sent him to the Light, as I would when awake. That happened only once, about two years ago. We DO send off radio waves of sorts, so if a needy soul senses someone like me, then, indeed, he/she might seek assistance. It amazed me that I can do that in my sleep as well. I cherish my blessings. God bless. 🙂

    I’ve also been tormented by the shadow people,they are not earth bound spirits,from another deninsion,only way I have learnt to fight back,is to never have fear,which I know can be hard,but fear is what strengthens them, I always hear a static noise in my head when they are coming,that’s my signal to get ready ,n stay strong don’t show them or give them your fear,n it’s a battle they will never win.

    I have been told cyanosis can occur at birth in people with negative blood types, especially if the mother has an incompatible blood type. I’m also indigo and incarnated into a bloodline on Earth with this blood type for a specific reason relating to transmutation of karma that has been continually passed down the line. I would not be surprised if other indigos are on similar missions. Our vibration is tuned specifically to shift the planet’s vibration. I think it’s partly why we have trouble with illness because we’re not 100% tuned to the environment, but I think also because in transmuting our own illnesses and raising our vibration, we create energetic openings for those in our proximity or attention to raise their vibration without even necessarily realizing it’s happening. I’ve been told just being in the same room with me changes the way people feel and I was told this by people who didn’t understand it, but continually observed it. It can also create defensiveness. This population has been isolated for a long time and is in major flux right now, so I try to be compassionate, but it’s definitely worn on me. I look young for my age, but I’ve had grey hair for 15 years or more.

    This may sound a bit odd, but considering maybe not. Many questionable things have been happening in my life lately – but the most important is that I’m receiving visual messages in text. It started a couple of months ago with words like “Hi” “Hello” and “Help” that I would read on pavement and the ground. I was very, very confused at the time. Then it started in the clouds, grass, snow, the marblized wall of my shower, and even on my flesh. It took me a moment to realize it’s not actually appearing physically… but probably a product of my mind/3rd eye/whatever there is. More recently, the messages have become… more, and the text explicitly mentions content that points to Starseeds. I never heard of Starseeds before the messages I was being given – still undecided on from who.
    Is there anyone, pure with intent, to whom I can speak to about this more in depth? I know this isn’t exactly a reply to your post, and I apologize, but I’m a bit at a loss. Thank you.

    .So you have told us about Indigo children, crystal children etc, but what of those who were born before these times?I am in my late fifties and have many of the traits attributed to these.Do we fall into a separate category or were those of us born in the 60’s not categorized?I might add, just because we have those attributes doesn’t necessarily make us “special”…would you agree?

    1. admin

      January 30, 2019 at 3:29 pm

      Susan – I DO believe it makes these individuals special. Sorry if that seems harsh. As for people in the 1950s and 60s, they say there were preliminary indigos or starseeds that were sent to earth before the big wave of indigos in the 80s. So it’s possible you were a “scout”.

      May 18, 2019 at 1:47 am

      @SUSAN O O’CONNOR I think Dolores Cannon referred to folks born in the 60’s as second wave. She mentioned souls coming before that, too. I am indigo, born in 1980, and I don’t really think I’m special, but I know I’ve never lived on this planet before. It’s been like a strange, heavy, long dream. It’s nice to wake up and remember this isn’t all there is. I look forward to returning home but I also already see a very bright future unfolding for this planet. Big mess to clean up still, but the sea change is occurring. The matrix is in chaos. So many false power structures are collapsing and so beautiful souls are rising up to shine their light. I bless every single one. May love grow from every corner and greet every heart and eye with joy and peace.

      Susan,I also agree star seed and Indigos have been here since the beginning of humanity and many seem to have been female. Funny how they just theorized the concept in the 70’s.The new age era…that there are actual categories of star children, Indigos…… I laugh. They were the seers, people having the knowing.history cast such persons as bad omens, demons, spirit posessed ,witches, magicians . They had no names for indigo. I could write book after book on my options and own research. . Don’t let me start on how religious leaders when assembling their holy books bastardized the Bible, Koran the Torah .I think the Bible stories of The Watchers was turned into a lesson taught horror story to make the believers stay in line.

    Ironically, I coincidentally have low blood pressure too, but I’m a crystal, (and had this confirmed by an aura photographer and reiki master).
    I like that you mention the eye color and skin color not being a factor to determine whether you’re an indigo child. Superficial is a word that stood out to me. .w iccan or pagan also stood out to me since I have an indigo niece. Although, not all of us are vegans. I eat a lot of meat. Also, it might be interesting to mention the electricity aspect that some indigo children have. I met an indigo child at work who had there for about a year, and we went through a ton of lights during that time period. Later on, she had told me that traffic lights would change whenever she was around … She was very mature for her age, young looking (which coincidentally is another trait I have…People sometimes mistaken me as a high school student and I’m in my mid thirties), I wouldn’t call her arrogant… probably moreorless she tried to take on more than she could handle, probably because she didn’t want to disappoint me and may put a lot of pressure on herself to do well; hence, why she might appear arrogant to others at first glance giving the impression of being ” know it all ” or know how to do everything. I had been the one who training her for the job and remember how quickly she had felt ready to work and be able to handle taking on a shift by herself … turns out she was freaking out and panicked about not knowing what to do when she worked alone at the store for the first time. Poor girl. She was trying really hard to make us happy, which I feel bad about since I never want to make people feel pressured to learn things quickly since I wanted them to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible when learning how to do the job… perhaps, because I was a late bloomer who took a bit longer to learn things in the beginning when I went to school… I went from taking special ed classes to honors classes by the I had graduated school with honors as third in my high school class)…so I understood what it felt like to struggle learning initially and made it a point to be understanding with everyone learning at their own pace when I had trained them.. Another thing I should note is that she’s also happened to be very talented, which could be seen as “showing off” or mistaken as being arrogant just because she could do something well…which miggt account for the impression of indigo children being arrogant due to having a lot of natural talent. I would also add music to the hobbies of indigo children. Oh,and she loved to read, particularly fantasy books about people ftom another imaginary world and admitted to sometimes staying up all night to read a book and be too tired to go to school the following day. ; ) she was a good kid. Very enthusiastic or animated, insightful, mature, thoughtful…. we even had an awesome conversation about spirits.

      Hi Penny,
      I found your comments interesting. I’m a late bloomer too and am in my 30s but people always think I look 21. I too was in kind of special ed classes in high school but mostly in English and math. But I loved English so much they put me into mainstream but kept me back in math I didn’t mind. Was in mainstream for most classes but never did physics or biology. After reading this article it explains a lot of who I am. When I first started working people thought I was rude because I didn’t talk much but I was just shy around New people, even to this day but I’m slightly more confident now. I was an only child too and for the first 8 years of my life in and out of hospital because of my health. Reading this I also remember I was born with cyanosis (born blue) so maybe that’s my blue aura? A lot of things have happened to me the last few years that make think I’m not from this planet but some sort of earth angel. I’m so glad I found this article, will have to do some more research into this

    I’m curious,this lower blood pressure and body temperature thing. I have both,but what does that have to do with being a starseed? I have read this in other places,but no one really explains it.Does anyone here now?

    1. admin

      October 30, 2018 at 8:41 pm

      When you go into space for an extended period of time, the cardiovascular system automatically starts to slow down. Your body goes into a mode of conservation, which would cause your blood pressure and body temperature to decrease. There were twin astronauts whose DNA was studied. One was sent to space and the other stayed here. After the one twin returned home, it was proven his DNA changed while in space. These were part of the changes. I believe that’s the connection with starseeds and low BP and body temp.

          Indigo adult here. Born on July 26th, 1984. Experienced gradual but intense awakening 11 years ago. Been spiritually harrassed by the dark entities entering into this 3d plane. Struggling at the moment but my sheer stubbornness won’t allow me to cave in. That’s the one strong valuable trait of an indigo.
