Starseed Children – children that have been higher density, multidimensional beings in the past and are now incarnated in a physical, 3D body.
Parenting any child is extremely difficult but parenting Starseed Children comes with its own set of challenges. Starseed Children are neurodivergent and are extremely sensitive.
1. Their brains are wired differently than typically developing children. Their physical brain needs to be trained in order to integrate high density input.
Typically humans tend to favour one side of the brain over the other hence they are ‘left-brained’ or ‘right-brained’. Starseed children will tend to use both sides of the brain equally. It is a sign of the larger transition from duality to unity.
Our physical brains are essentially ‘caveman’ brains – our brains are physically designed for duality. In order for humanity to move into higher densities, the structure of our dualistic brain must be altered. Starseed children are likely to be born with a brain that will allow them to develop both hemispheres together.
A potential problem arises as a result of this new brain symmetry. Sensory processing issues may arise because the child is processing higher density information using a physical brain that is not equipped to handle the information. There are activities that will help the physical brain integrate the higher frequency information. The brain is living and dynamic – we can work it out like a muscle.
Building connections between the left and right sides of the brain will help starseed children integrate the higher frequency information without causing physical effects.
When a child’s brain is not prepared to receive the information, they are overwhelmed by it. This can manifest as symptoms such as attention deficits, hyper activity, memory issues, emotional regulation difficulties, motor delays, speech delays etc. Children may have balance and coordination issues.
Starseed children may benefit from exercises that build connections between the right and left sides of the brain. Using the physical body to build pathways in the physical brain will allow the brain to use these pathways in other ways. As humanity moves from duality to unity, our physical bodies must catch up and this will take a conscious effort.
In the past, most humans were typically left-brained or right-brained individuals – their brains are asymmetrical.
Child starseeds are likely to be born with brains that are more symmetrical and will use both left and right sides of the brain equally. Currently, our physical brains are adapted to favouring one side of the brain over the other. So… we must train our brains to use both sides together – we do this by building physical neural connections between left and right sides.
Starseed children are likely to benefit immensely from crossing midline activities. These activities will build the neural connections between the left and right hemispheres, which the brain will use for other functions.
What is the difference between starseed children whose brain attempts to use both hemispheres without having created the neural connections required to successfully use both halves at the same time and children with a disorder like ADHD and ASD?
Autistic children will not permanently improve with the crossing midline activities – they will see improvement but they will need to keep repeating the exercises in order to maintain the desired effect. Starseed children will see permanent changes in their behavior, focus, coordination etc. and will eventually decrease their need for the exercises until they don’t need them at all.
This being said – it is absolutely possible to be autistic AND a starseed. Understanding how your body integrates the information it receives from the environment will help no matter what your diagnosis is.
Teaching your brain to process the information and giving it the physical neural pathways it needs to do its job will be helpful to everyone but it will be essential for some.
All children benefit from balanced nutrition that includes proteins, healthy fats (omega 3 fatty acids), vitamin D and all the other required minerals and vitamins. Maintaining a healthy gut biome is also essential to good health.
3. Physical Activity and Movement
Various types of play build essential neural pathways in the brain. If a child misses out of physical activity milestones like crawling, rolling over, walking, passing a ball from hand to hand – the neural pathways typically built during these activities are not created and may influence many aspects of the child’s life. It is important to ensure that your child is doing a wide range of physical activities.
Play special attention to developing your child’s posture, core muscles, muscle strength/flexibility and the stabilizer muscles of the shoulders and hips.
DO NOT ALLOW W-SITTING!
W-sitting weakens the shoulder stabilizers and tightens the hip stabilizers. Weakened shoulder stabilizers mean that your child may have difficulty with cross midline movements and thus will begin to avoid them. These movements are necessary to build neural pathways that help with sensory processing, language, speech, attention, reading and many other things.
Have your child sit criss cross and remind them to squeeze their shoulder blades back and down and flex the tummy muscles.
4. Starseed Children and the Natural Environment
Take your child outside in the forest – a lot. Encourage them to touch the trees, the plants, to smell the flowers, to feel the stickiness of the sap, squish clay, soil and sand between their fingers and learn to observe the natural cycles. Teach your child to recognize signs and symbols in nature. Point out how seasonal behaviors of plants and animals could signal upcoming seasonal weather changes.
Teach your child to create landmarks in their mind while on hikes – for example:
“Look! There’s a huge oak tree at the first bend on our trail.” Have your child study the tree and try to remember it. On your way back, remind your child “Is that the big oak tree that we saw at the start?” and try to encourage them to come to the conclusion that they must be almost back at the beginning of the hike.
Learning to interpret natural signs or symbols in the forest and decode the meaning helps with learning to decode words later on.
The neural pathways will have been built and are now there to be used for other activities that rely on the same pathways.
Spending time in nature helps develop many skills but it also helps with mental health.
5. Be Present.
Your young child will need you to play with them and interact with them… a lot. So be prepared to let the house get messy while you choose to play with playdoh instead of cleaning. This period of their life is so short, so enjoy it.
You will have your social life back and time to yourself once they begin to not want you around anymore. If you do parenting right… they will get annoyed with how consistently present you are as they get older and begin to put up boundaries. They will want their own life and they will want you to be available only when they need your guidance. Be okay with this process. Respect their boundaries.
Set up boundaries of your own, if they are ready for you to be less present, then they are ready to start on the path to self sufficiency. This doesn’t mean abandon them… it means expect them to take on more personal responsibility.. Increase the expectations as they mature and develop until they are self sufficient adults.
6. Keep your cool and stay on your toes!
Starseed children may be very independent and stubborn. They are likely to question everything… which in some cases is just plain dangerous. You can tell your starseed child that they cannot fly if they jump out of the tree… but if they really, REALLY want to fly… they’ll jump and test your parental logic. They just won’t believe you… they will need to see it or experience it for themselves.
It is so frustrating as a parent.
Mom: “Please just trust me… you cannot just start doing flips on the trampoline without proper instruction, you could hurt yourself if you do it improperly. I promise you, you will start gymnastics lessons.”
Child: “You might be wrong though. I could survive. So.. I’m going to try as soon as you’re not looking”.
Try to keep that child alive and don’t lose your mind in the process. Which brings us to the next point…
7. Take care of yourself.
It takes a village to raise a child, so ask for help when you feel overwhelmed. Pay attention to your feelings and your needs.
