What are Starseeds? I High Functioning Autism | God Touched | Indigo Children | Witches | Lightworkers | Uniqueness & Non-Conformity as Spiritual Ideals

image

I was recently asked this on my FB group page. Answering without sounding so kookie people following the page who hadn’t heard the term might think definition meant answering it quite carefully! Some new age ideas are very old ideas but with new “jargon” or extensions of existing beliefs and ideas not new to all religions but somehow “reframed” out of context so they do come over sounding a bit far fetched!

It’s a criticism I have for the “New Age” in general. Lots of ideas without much basis and without any subjective or objective reasoning behind them…let alone citing sources that have existed for thousands of years that say the same thing in different words. I am also guilty of not citing sources. I have a really good memory (part of my aspergers – high functioning autism). But I draw a blank remembering faces. And apparently names too. When I am reading fiction I notice I almost blank names as I read them! So even if I remember the book…the cover…where I was when I read it etc, I won’t have retained the author’s name. My mind seems to consider names very unimportant which is why most people in my life have nicknames I’ve given them. It’s my weird “name blindness”.

Anyway…back to the topic…in answering the question referring to similar or associated ideas the person was likely to know instead of me rambling on with a lot of new age jargon, I feel I explained the concept well.

As a teacher of energy healing, attunement based spiritual development courses and meditation based courses, I am very aware of ensuring my writing is accessible to people who have no previous experience.

Also, I am not running a cult teaching new words for ideas that promote exclusivity…or fudge the details so people don’t realise they are not being told anything. Those are pet hates of mine.

Also, as a teacher I don’t want to alienate people who hold religious beliefs that may be different to mine. I don’t teach religion and I don’t like it when people dress ideas and philosophies as being facts. We can be as objective in our explanations as possible – but even the best articulated philosophical deductions are open to debate. (I do feel my Autism helps me to communicate higher concepts in a more accessible way because I have to do it so much as my normal life experience. It definitely helps rather than hinders my work!).

I promote freedom and empowerment so I won’t dogmatically preach theories as facts. I know some new age writers do this…but I think real understanding is only available when you digest information for yourself.

I may be hypersensitive to it…aware sometimes that a blog is addressed to people with a prior knowledge…I always try to pitch my writing so it’s useful to people without prior knowledge; defining terms sometimes makes all the difference!
Anyway…enough about my motivations for the way I addressed the question! In my own words, the answer goes something like this…

Some people believe in reincarnation. Some believe some of us had previous lives on other planets or stars perhaps in a different dimension not a physical body, but a life or origin that’s not of this earth and possibly not of this plane (dimension).

People who feel that often refer to themselves as “starseeds”.

For me personally, I think it’s very possible other worlds and types of existance are viable in addition to being a humans on earth with some kind of soul that exists beyond our biological reality.

I also do agree with the concept because as I child I recall feeling “homesick”. My Aspergers may have been part of that; some people also believe some “advanced” spiritual beings choose to reincarnate to help others achieve spiritual wholeness and that High Functioning Autism or some types of epilepsy are a part of that.

That’s not a new idea but the term “starseeded” is a new age term for it. They may also use terms like “earth angels”, “indigos” and “crystal children” etc…depending on the current trend in ideas or new ideas about old ideas!

I do feel I lived somewhere else before I came here as a human. And that it wasn’t like this. And I miss it. I think of it as being “homesick for heaven”. But I don’t claim to understand what it was or where it was. I do feel the work I do now in this life was chosen before I came here. And I feel it will continue when I leave (die). But I don’t have proof of that. It’s just something I feel so strongly it feels more real than real to me. And I have since met other people who also remember the “before life”.

Some people would suggest my feelings are born of delusion…failing to grasp that the Asper brain is not prone to delusion or irrationality; they are experiences more common to people whose beliefs are a reaction to their emotions. Rather than someone whose mind is hyper-rational. Our problems in being understood usually come from our capacity to naturally experience and express our experiences in a far more abstract way than our lower-functioning peers.

This capacity for abstract understand is why many High Functioning Autistics display unusually advanced language skills, may be drawn to mathematics and tend to show greater creativity. Not all share the same special skills or special interests. But I have no doubt that the work I do teaching energy healing and my magickal ‘career’ are advanced by my Aspergers in ways people of a neurotypical function wouldn’t experience. I wouldn’t trade my High Functioning brain for one that didn’t see music, feel colours or understand how to reweave karma (spells) the way I do. My work through www.mayastar.netand www.mayamagickal.net absolutely relies on my mind being as it is!

The long and short of it is some people believe people who are born with Higher Functioning Autism or Epilepsy (I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) were “god touched” thousands of years ago. That’s the phrase they would have used here centuries ago. And only relatively recently have the insights, perspectives and non-confirmity of people like me been negatively interpreted as a deficiency or fault.

This is beginning to change. With High Functioning Autistics being head hunted for their unique abilities especially in identifying problems quickly or irregularities in (for example) programming scripts that a Neurotypical wouldn’t be able to do so accurately or quickly.

And of course, the New Age has seen a revival in old spiritual and philosophical understandings that our uniqueness is a gift: an extra abilty not a disability!

Happy Father’s Day Poppa (In Loving Memory)

image

My dad died at 67, in September last year. He had an inoperable #BrainTumour. He responded well to chemo…the tumour was fast growing and so from diagnosis to goodbye (for now), wasn’t very long.

He was loved to bits by everyone ♡ His memory lives on in those whose actions are inspired by his love and his often cited “be nice to each other”!

Happy Father’s Day Poppa….miss you millions. And, I stand by my assertion that love is a forever deal and keeps people together through aeons. It wouldn’t be love if it didn’t eh?

I love you dad ♡

image

Poppa chose this song for his funeral…

“There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all (#Beatles)
____________
I chose this one for him in life and still…

https://youtu.be/utF4-JJiRdc

“…Daddy’s smart
And you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine

And I didn’t know if you knew
So I’m taking this chance to say
That I had the best day
With you today”
(#taylorswift)

Anna Louise May | Random Updates | Heels | Lighting | Teddy Boys | Silliness | Unicorn | Nights at the Opera | Motown | Spells & Work

Random updates…

Spent my evening sorting out stuff so my #dancestudio can convert to a (rudimentary) bedroom so when my brother visits he doesn’t have to clock watch. And sorting out the rest of the new #ledbulbs – for #energysaving & #moodlight effects that don’t mess w/ my #epilepsy.

It was a bit too late for paperwork by then…so I sent this pic to my #TeddyBoy to ask if he wanted a bath 🙂 It was my fave of the silly pix I sent as it not only includes my most spectacular #sparkly #swarovski #stilettos (my black velvet #gothic #princess #heels) but Lux the #Unicorn & #psychadelic lighting conspired to show my #delicate #ankles & my strong #ballet trained feet feet off perfectly. It’s all just soooo me.

So, me & spider had a bath…ate cold #pizza, watched #GhostHunters & spent a “night at the opera”, listening to #motown.

Perfect.

Tonight I will really have to #henna my roots, tint my eyebrows & eyelashes (I look so unkempt to myself!) & do my admin work for Mayastar Academy. Two #spells for #MayaMagickal – one reversal (as a preliminary working for a #prosperity working) and one #ArchangelMichael #ProtectionSpell.

Today’s fave 3 things…#pets, #chanel no19 and my #bellicon #rebounder!

Carter USM – Sheriff Fatman | Song of the Day | On YouTube

https://youtu.be/US9nVBuDHhg

Woke up w/ a random song fr the #90s stuck in my head. #SheriffFatman by #CarterUSM (sharing fr youtube).

Best lyrics ever?

“Then he somehow got himself on the starship enterprise allowance scheme, with a prince of wales award for pushing valium and amphetamines”

“At six foot six and a hundred tons – the undisputed king of the slums”

“If you flash him a smile, he’ll take your teeth as deposit”

Totally classic!

Fifties Dress | Red Roses | Pizza | Valentines | Lush Haul | Bath Blogging

image

Dressed for a perfect Valentine’s Day (the dress was a couple of sizes too big…reviewers on Amazon said it “came up small” but I guess their bodies came up bigger than mine!). #Fifties dress wowed my Teddy Boy.  Black with red roses, red petticoat, elasticated belt (thank goodness as the dress did look too big!) & red shoes (stilettos) & a nifty hairstick updo.

Was a lovely night…ate pizza & watched Breakfast At Tiffanys. Then listened to motown and chatted under the fairy lights in bed. I had planned for us to watch the dvd on the living room but the dvd player is temperamental. The one in the bedroom is reliable & since my bed is a futon, a couple of big pillows make it into a comfortable “sofa”.

My honey (being to the sweetest), bought me the most enormous Lush Haul ever! He became a fan after I got him some dream cream to try on his dry skin. He often comes round early for dinner and if I’m still in the bath we chat in bathroom while I soak. (It’s an essential part of my day…I do my most frivolous blogging from the bath!) But he pays attention to what I say…an amazing trait in a bf! So he had a list of all my favourites…frozen bathbomb, Guardian of the Forest bathbomb, ro’s argan body conditioner, sympathy for the skin, butterball (like super moisturising bathbomb), rehab shampoo, americancream conditioner, rose jam bubblebath and yellow fun. He got a few extras too…blue fun (smells lovely), Vanillia perfume and minty face mask too.

image

I didn’t ask…but he must have spent a fortune. I sorted it all into a box with my current stash and the bedroom smells gorgeous!

Definitely feeling like the cat that godt the cream. The best Valentines Day I have had since I was a teenager!

Feel v pampered and princessy 😀

Paloma Faith | Princess | Hair Sticks | Redhead | Cute Kids | Happy Days

image

Feeling v flattered today. My sis let my nephews stay up to watch #thevoice the other day & in all seriousness, on seeing #PalomaFaith, Scott asked my sister if it was me. It’s funny cos walking around to my dad’s one day, my neighbour saw me with my hair up like in this pic and said “OMG! I thought it was Paloma Faith”…my sister thinks there are similarities but that actually it was her speaking voice that made them think it was me. See what you think – my only #YouTube upload from my family Xmas w/ the boys (so now they’ve seen me on the Internet they’re convinced I’m some kind of superstar!)

https://youtu.be/OLqwJjSRhLc

They are still young enough they think I am a real #princess…asking me if I have got a castle and a kingdom at Christmas. It was very sweet. And I am pretty committed to being a princess!
