Have you felt different to others your entire life, as though you’re an outsider looking in, but can’t quite put your finger on why or what it is that makes you different?

It’s possible you’re an Earth Angel.
It’s my hope that with this article you will discover a major part of yourself that has remained buried for years, if not decades. As someone who resonates with this energy myself, I can only hope it brings you some much needed clarity, peace and joy.
Discovering you’re part of a vast community of wondrous Earth Angels is a life-changing experience.
In this post, you’ll discover:
- Your true soul origins
- What an Earth Angel is
- Subtle signs you may be one
- Their guiding mission and purpose, and how to find yours
- Challenges these souls face and overcome
WHAT IS AN EARTH ANGEL?
Earth Angels are a loving, nurturing group of souls who agreed to incarnate on Earth to balance out the light from the dark. They are the closest thing we have to true celestial angels on Earth.
Whilst they may not have lived in the divine realms, they can have memories that make it seem like they’ve lived previous lives elsewhere other than on Earth. The true empaths, healers and nurturers amongst us, they are highly sensitive beings and often feel different to people they’ve interacted with their entire life.
Earth Angels radiate pure, unfiltered joy into the world and are here to transmute heavier energies into lighter ones through their specific mission or purpose (more on that later).
EARTH ANGEL TRAITS AND CHARACTERISTICS – 19 SUBTLE SIGNS YOU ARE ONE
Discovering that you are an Earth Angel will have a deep and profound effect on your life. It will alter the way you see yourself for the better, and more importantly, it will give you a sense of guiding purpose. An explanation as to why you’ve felt the way you have for such a long time. Trust that what resonates here isn’t in your imagination, but instead is real.
1. You Notice the Miracles in the Mundane
Have you ever stopped to look at the world around you and just stared in awe and amazement? The shape of the clouds, the smell of the dewy grass in the morning, the sight of the sun breaking over the horizon.
No matter what is happening in your life, you can’t help but notice the miracles that surround you each and every day. Little things that other people would miss make you smile.
2. You Absorb Other People’s Energy and Moods Quickly
Earth Angels aren’t just empathic in the sense that they can put themselves in someone else’s shoes, but they are clairsentient beings. They can literally feel and absorb the energy of those around them, and it doesn’t take much exposure to do so.
Have you ever talked to someone who is experiencing real problems in their life, only to realise that you’ve walked away with a deep feeling of sadness, heaviness and negativity, but can’t understand why? You’re likely highly gifted in clairsentience.
You’re able to pull in their feelings to the point of downloading them into your own energetic system.
3. You Struggle to Set Boundaries
Speaking of absorbing other people’s energies, you struggle to set hard and firm boundaries when it comes to other people’s needs. You’re a natural giver, you are a true carer, and want to do the ‘good’ thing to the extent of burning yourself out.
Physical and emotional burnout is something Earth Angels commonly suffer with. It takes time for you to say ‘no’, even if you know it’s probably for the best.
You can’t understand why people would ever want to take advantage of you. This is one spiritual lesson Earth Angels need to learn to be ‘successful’ in this lifetime.
4. You Sometimes Feel Naive and Vulnerable in This World
Guided by the laws of love, unity and compassion, you struggle with the seemingly callous nature of this world.
You expect people to care and love the way you do, only to be shocked when it doesn’t happen. You might even think there’s something wrong with you (there isn’t).
5. You are an Eternal Optimist
You like to see the blessings beyond the storm, even if no-one else can. You’re a believer in that things always happen for a reason. You’re an ‘ending always leads to a beautiful new beginning’ kind of person.
6. Children and Animals are Naturally Drawn to You
Many Earth Angels have a pure and unfiltered aura; something which animals and children are naturally attracted to. They can sense your loving and nurturing nature.
You might easily be able to calm a distressed child or injured animal, where others can’t. You might feel as though you can understand and communicate with animals and children even without words. A simple look into their eyes is all it takes.
7. You Have a Deep Love for The Natural World
Forests, oceans, jungles – Earth Angels have a natural affinity to nature. They have a high vibrational energy which is dampened by the bustling nature of man-made cities.
They feel a sense of relief and calmness pour over them when they’re in sync with the natural ebb and flow of the Earth.
8. You are Triggered by Loud Noises and Experiences
Loud noises easily affect your wellbeing and ability to be productive. They clutter your thinking and make it almost impossible to do what you do best; heal.
You prefer quieter, calmer environments. This might have been the same for you even as a child.
9. You Feel Like an Outsider Looking In
Earth Angels who don’t realise they are one often have a desperate need to fit into social circles and society as a whole.
They know that they’re different but can’t quite put their finger on what it is that makes them different to everyone else they see. From a young age, you’ve likely felt like an outsider.
10. You Think in Possibilities
Creative thinkers and healers, these loving souls radiate pure joy and optimism. They are just grateful to be living life as we know it.
Similar to Lyran Starseeds, Earth Angels see Earth as a playground for their soul – a playground full of possibilities just waiting to be explored.
Negative thinking and self limiting beliefs can take Earth Angels by force though if they’ve absorbed too many of them over the years.
11. Violence, Maltreatment & Injustice Troubles You
Seeing a stray animal, a person without shelter or the mistreatment of another human being deeply troubles you. If you were to see a video or even hear someone talking about this kind of mistreatment, you instantly feel a pang of sadness, remorse and regret for mankind.
You struggle to understand how anyone could harbor such hateful intentions in the first place.
12. You’re Deeply Empathic and Highly Sensitive
You feel what other people feel in a way that you can’t put into words. Whereas others offer sympathy, you are able to understand and feel what another person is experiencing from their frame of reference.
Without the right type of boundaries, you likely feel emotionally exhausted most of the time (without ever truly knowing why). You are literally embodying the emotions of tens if not hundreds of people at a time.
13. You Have a Deep Fascination with Angels and Their Synchronicities
This might sound like an obvious sign, but Earth Angels have an intense relationship with the angels within the divine realms. You might see angel numbers like 333 or 111 everywhere you look.
You might understand the significance of angel hierarchy and order. You might be able to name some Archangels and what mission they stand for.
Or, at the very least, you have a desire and willingness to delve deeper into these matters.
14. You’re Visited by Angels or Angelic Like Beings
Through the form of energetic downloads, Earth Angels can communicate with the angels in the higher realms. They are skilled at dreamwork, astral travel and practices such as spiritual journaling.
Even if you’re unaware of your spirit guide team, you likely have more than one Guardian Angel you communicate with, perhaps even a team of them. These beings might visit in your dreams, in a half-waking state or when you are in most need of help and support (likely in the form of a human presence).
15. You Embody the Energy of the Magician & Manifest Effortlessly
When in alignment with their most authentic self, Earth Angels are effortless manifestors. They carry the energy of the Magician in tarot; they have everything they could possibly need to make their life a living dream.
Their energy is naturally high which is what makes manifestation so easy for these incredible beings. The challenge is keeping their energy high when faced with adversity from other humans.
16. You’re a Born Healer and Caregiver
Healers are often mistaken as traditional healers, meaning careers which involve medicine, holistic treatment or spiritual energy work. But, healers come from all walks of life.
They can break trauma chains which have run through their family for generations. They can become the first millionaire in their family and heal self limiting beliefs they have had surrounding money. They can help others through the form of coaching, teaching or guiding. Earth Angels are healers in every sense of the word.
17. You are Highly Creative
Whether you realise it or not, you have a wildly imaginative creative side just waiting to be unleashed.
Be it through music, arts, writing, or DIY, Earth Angels use their child-like joy to give birth to creations that help raise their personal vibration. Many of these souls turn their hobbies into a full time career, and are very successful in doing so.
18. You are Selective Over Who You Let into Your Circle
You might have been taken advantage of in the past, and so now, you are selective over who you let close to you. Through no fault of their own, Earth Angels have the tendency to think spreading their compassion, joy and optimism to as many people as possible is the best thing to do.
This leads to confusion and rejection from those who aren’t yet ready to hear and experience your loving vibration. As a result, many Earth Angels feel isolated whilst still having a lot of ‘friends’.
19. You Have Psychic and Earth Angel Abilities
Angelic communication, dreamwork, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance, divination, mediumship are just some of the psychic and angelic abilities which you may resonate with.
Earth Angels can have both what I call ‘earthbound’ and ‘divine’ talents. Earthbound skills are things like automatic writing, journaling, art, cooking, herbalism, gardening etc. Divine talents are those associated with the higher realms; intuition, astral travel, dreamwork, akashic record meditation etc.
OTHER SIGNS THAT POINT TO YOU BEING AN EARTH ANGEL
- You had a troublesome childhood and learnt what compassion, love and patience means by teaching it to yourself
- You feel like you have a specific mission to carry out on Earth, even if you’re not sure what it is
- You were mocked or teased as a child because of something that made you different
- You have or have had low self worth, self confidence and self esteem
- You get the sense that people think you’re different (but not necessarily in a judgemental way)
- You feel deeply connected with the universe, planets, stars and nature
- You look up at the stars and feel a deep yearning to return home (you might also be a starseed)
- Certain words, quotes and songs cause a surge of emotions to rise from your spirit

If you resonate with most of these signs, you can rest assured you are an Earth Angel.
TYPES OF EARTH ANGELS
Did you know that there are many different types of Earth Angels too? Below, I’ve listed the most common ones I’ve encountered and had the pleasure of working with. Some of these you might recognise within yourself, or even those around you.
- THE OVERACHIEVER
These are the angels who want to do everything and anything in their lifetime. They want to experience everything this world has to offer. These people are multipotentialites and rarely settle on one career.
They believe they have more than one mission to carry out in this lifetime, and often feel overwhelmed at the thought of choosing just one path.
- THE ACTIVIST
Rattled by injustice and inequality, these souls are at the forefront of activism. You’ll find them organising peaceful protest marches, establishing organizations/charities and scoping out careers which allow them to change public policy.
- THE CREATOR
Inspired by their own imagination, the creators see no limits as to what’s possible in this world. They love to bring new ways of doing something to the table. These people are the designers, innovators, architects and makers amongst us. They view life as a giant canvas for self expression.
- THE ADVENTURER
Adventurers are the wild and solo type of Earth Angel. They love trying new things, meeting new people and most importantly, letting their soul roam free. But, unlike the overachiever, the adventurer has a specific infatuation with travel and culture.
These are the volunteers, digital nomads and live abroad kind of people. You might struggle to pin them down to one place in particular.
- THE HEALER
These are the counsellor archetypes. They have a talent for listening, and helping others reframe their problems. They love to serve, be it through traditional healing roles such as medicine and therapy or non-traditional modalities such as writing, money coaching and public speaking etc.
- THE HERMIT
Earth Angels who aren’t aware of their capabilities, talents and authentic self typically fall into this category. It’s very easy for Earth Angels to embody the energy of the hermit; someone who spends a lot of time alone and needs introspection to thrive.
As a way of defending themselves and their energy, these people believe it is better to be alone than it is to be misunderstood. And whilst we all need our alone time, this belief can get out of control and lead to isolation.
EARTH ANGEL PURPOSE AND LIFE MISSION
Earth Angels’ overarching mission is one of compassion, love and inspiration. Collectively, they are here to infuse optimism, light and joy where it doesn’t exist.
They are the bringers of light because their energy and soul vibration is so pure. This doesn’t mean they need to be fixing or doing all the time though; many Earth Angels carry a deeply personal soul mission within their DNA that requires them to just ‘be’.
A soul mission that allows them to be happy and experience what a physical 3D life has to offer.
By no means is this selfish or a waste of divine talent. The idea of ‘doing, ‘doing, doing’ is purely a man-made one. The celestial realms practice tuning into the flow of the higher self and doing what feels right.
That said, some Earth Angels are here as divine healers and they would feel lost without serving. In which case, their soul purpose involves transmuting heavier, darker energies and transforming them into lighter ones.
I’ve always called these beautiful souls ‘Moon Seeds’, as they’ve agreed to incarnate here to work with the darker side of the world’s psyche which is never to be taken lightly.
These loving souls often have a turbulent childhood and face heavy trauma in the early half of their lives. Though painful, this experience enables them to heal themselves to then share their story with others so they too can heal. It’s partly why Earth Angels are so empathic.
WHAT IS MY EARTH ANGEL MISSION OR PURPOSE?
Discovering you’re an Earth Angel is one thing, but what do you do with this knowledge? How are you supposed to work out what you came to do? It’s a good question, and I’m afraid not one I can answer for you.
Earth Angel’s are either born with the innate knowledge of their soul mission, or it comes to them after having gone through an Earth Angel spiritual awakening.
If there’s a piece of advice I could give you it would be this; whatever idea or path seems the most crazy, most wild, and most free is the path you were always meant to walk.
These souls are bound by no earthly limitations. They’re effortless manifestors. They can wield the power of the divine realms to make anything they wish a reality.
Whatever speaks to your soul or makes you feel full of fear is the very thing that will pull you out of your human shell and into your Earth Angel one.
Fear is a good indicator as to where your mindset limits lie; it shows where you’re cutting yourself off from the infinite well that is universal power. Follow the path you fear the most to find your most authentic self.
WHAT DO EARTH ANGELS LOOK LIKE?
Earth Angels don’t look any different to a regular human, though they can hold a certain angelic quality about them. A bubbly personality. An uncanny optimism. A pure, child-like joy.
Similar to starseeds, a soul seeking expansion and growth won’t choose a ‘body’ based on its looks, but instead, it will choose someone based upon agreed soul contracts, the body’s energetic blueprint and past lives.
An Earth Angel will choose to incarnate into a body that has potential for growth and healing. Earth Angels can be tall, short, fat, thin, have defining features, or none at all. If you resonate with Earth Angels, please don’t think you need to have purely angelic-like qualities to be one – you absolutely don’t!
HOW TO RECOGNIZE AN EARTH ANGEL
I don’t like to generalize what features or characteristics Earth Angels have as everyone is different, but from experience, these are the most common defining traits.
- A white, golden yellow or green aura
- A smile that brightens up their face
- Child-like innocence
- An insatiable curiosity & thirst for knowledge
- A rare perspective and outlook on life
- A joy bringer
- Secretly an introvert, even if they appear outgoing
- Quietly confident
- Brings the best out of those around them (or jealousy and envy in unevolved souls)
DO EARTH ANGELS FALL IN LOVE? WHY DO THEY HAVE DIFFICULT RELATIONSHIPS?
Earth Angels do fall in love, but oftentimes with the wrong people. These souls are trusting, and always try to see the good in someone, even if it means burying the red flags under the carpet.
Plus, because of their nature and way of being they have a tendency to attract ‘broken souls’; souls who are misguided, need healing and drain other people’s energy. It’s true that opposites attract.
If you ever meet another Earth Angel, you’ll know what I mean. Earth Angels are purer than pure, completely innocent and carry an undeniable sense of hope. They’re shrouded in mystery as very few people understand what to do with such a beautiful spirit. It’s why they have a hard time with love and relationships.
Not all hope is lost though. The key to finding a compatible relationship as an Earth Angel is setting boundaries and honoring your own values and worth. These souls need to put themselves first before extending that loving energy elsewhere.
CAN A GUARDIAN ANGEL WALK IN HUMAN FORM ON EARTH?
You might be surprised to know that an Earth Angel’s guardian angel can walk the Earth in the form of a person. If you’ve ever caught a stranger’s eye and felt an instant, but unusual connection to them, it’s possible you were experiencing a guardian angel sighting.
This connection will feel kind, friendly and unusually warm. It’s not the same as seeing someone you’re attracted to or catching someone staring at you, only for them to look away.
Instead, it will seem like you’ve known them for a long time, or can’t quite put your finger on where you’ve seen them before. You might even have a feeling that this ‘person’ is your guardian angel disguised as another Earth Angel.
It’s a type of interaction you don’t come across very often on Earth, if at all.
I believe I saw one of my guardian angels in human form once. I was in my early teens, around the age of 15 and I’d just had an argument with some of my friends. I was very upset and had tears streaming down my face as I left my friend’s house.
It was turning dark outside and the street lamps were just flickering to life. Luckily my friend’s house wasn’t too far away from my parents.
Just as I turned the last corner to go home, a young woman appeared. She started talking to me and asking if I was okay as I walked down the road. Her accent was plain but different, she didn’t come from the area I lived in. She had an unusually friendly and warm demeanour.
She never tried to come close to me. She simply smiled and walked opposite sides of the street with me to make sure I was okay.
Now, this could have been a friendly stranger, but here’s what fascinates me. 1) I never saw her again, she wasn’t a local that’s for sure. 2) She wore all black. 3) Just before I turned into my parent’s driveway, I went back to the road I last saw her on to thank her for her help, but she had vanished.
It was a long road, with nowhere to turn off other than go into a house, but as I said earlier, she wasn’t a local. I knew everyone in those houses.
I’ve never experienced anything quite like it since.
HOW MANY EARTH ANGELS ARE BELIEVED TO BE ON EARTH?
There’s no known record of how many Earth Angels are believed to roam the Earth, though based on their unusual personality traits and characteristics, an encounter with one is likely very rare.
Some angel channelers believe that less than 2% of the world’s overall population are Earth Angels, which is likely very accurate.
THRIVING IN THIS WORLD AS AN EARTH ANGEL & FINAL THOUGHTS
Now you’ve found out that you’re an Earth Angel, it’s time to discover how to use your unique skills, talents and divine capabilities to create a life you love. Thriving on Earth as an Earth Angel isn’t as frightening as it may seem. It comes down to a few core factors:
- Understanding that you are inherently different to other people and embracing it, celebrating it even.
- Setting firm boundaries so that your precious energy isn’t sapped by other less evolved souls.
- Taking the time to rediscover your own vitality, personal power and wellbeing. No act of self care is selfish, even if that means saying ‘no’.
- Vowing never to dim your light to fit into the box that other people want to put you in.
You are truly a loving and beautiful soul that deserves to be happy and free. Believe it and claim that energy. More so than ever before, you have the intelligence of the entire cosmos within every cell and fiber of your body.
It’s time to fully step into your authentic power and reveal the magnificent being that you are.
Wishing you lots of light and courage on your journey,
