I am sure by now you have noticed all the different star children and energetic beings surrounding you. We come in forms of everything from crystal children to highly sensitive individuals and so much more.

While no two people are the same there are some characteristics that seem to make different people fit into different groups. While not everyone knows the difference between Empaths and Starseeds everyone can know the difference. Sure the two are similar but they are nowhere near the same.

Because people seem to get these two confused more often than not below you will find a list explaining the differences. Are you an Empath or a Starseed? Do you know the difference?

Traits of an Empath:

“Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.” 
― Anthon St. Maarten

People come to you for advice often and believe you are quite approachable.

You are able to absorb the emotions of others as your own.

Your intuition is highly developed.

You tend to be quite exhausted.

You have an addictive personality.

You love animals and are drawn to nature.

You must have time alone to recharge.

You are a wonderful listener.

Traits of a Starseed:

“If we are serious about dreaming our awakening into being and creating a peaceful, loving earth in which the heart, spirit and soul are the only true leaders, we must continue to keep our focus on thoughts of unity and all that truly brings us together.”
― Diane Hall

You are an old soul.

You feel homesick all the time.

You are very empathetic.

You have intense dreams.

You are drawn to animals and nature.

You come off as rude most of the time.

You are often considered to be ‘unapproachable.’

People do not come to you for advice often.

You do not like to deal with people in what one would consider being large doses.

Empaths fit in and Starseeds at often quite alienated. While both of these kinds of people may feel as if no one understands them, they do not quite understand one another either. Please feel free to check out the video below for more information on both Starseeds and Empaths.

There is nothing wrong with either of these kinds of people, they both serve a good purpose in this world. We would not be able to get through in the ways that we do if we were lacking one or the other. Everyone on this planet is here for a reason. Just because you do not know your purpose yet does not mean that you do not have one.
