The Evolving Soul and the Shapeshifter


If you still don’t know your realm, you may come from an as-yet-undiscovered realm. Or you may be an “Evolving Soul” or a “Shapeshifter”. That means that you’re either moving from one realm to the next, or are hopscotching through the realms for the sake of variety and growth.


If you are an Evolving Soul, you’re moving from one realm to the next, so you may not identify with one particular group. Perhaps you’ve spent many lifetimes in one realm and have learned everything you can from this experience, so you elect to enter a new realm. You don’t identify fully with the group you just left or the group you’re newly joining.

If this sounds like you, give yourself time to adjust to the new group, and don’t judge yourself harshly for feeling disconnected. Earth Angels in the Evolving Soul category can feel doubly alienated – not only do you feel separate from humans, but you feel different from the other Earth Angels as well! It can feel like being the last kid picked for a softball team: unwanted and unappreciated.

Know that these are temporary feelings, and pray for spiritual assistance to know that you’re not alone and that you are wanted and appreciated. After all, you were very brave to switch to a new realm, and you probably did so out of the noble intention to be extra helpful to the world!


Some souls desire variety, excitement, and a wealth of experience. If you’re a Shapeshifter, like a kid in the candy store, you can’t decide what you want, so you select everything on the menu. The Shapeshifters are Earth Angels who move from realm to realm. You never quite settle into one particular realm family. Instead, you graze from the highlights that each realm has to offer. Simultaneously, you bring gifts to each realm from the lessons you’ve learned while in the other Earth Angel realms. Shapeshifters rapidly adapt to new situations and people, much like children who move a lot and attend different schools, yet develop the ability to quickly fit in.

If you’re an Evolving Soul or a Shapeshifter, you’re like a honeybee going from flower to flower, taking and bringing nourishment as you travel. You provide valuable services because you infuse the realms with fresh blood, new ideas, and awakened vitality.

Evolving Souls and Shapeshifters fall into two distinct groups: the Independent Thinkers and the Adaptors. Independent Thinkers are take-charge individuals and radical non-conformists who take pride in being outsiders. They believe that “normalcy” is tantamount to being sentenced to mediocrity. Independent Thinkers are champions of humanitarian and environmentalist causes – unless the causes are too popular. Independent Thinkers don’t like to be trendy, and they desire their own unique niche outside of the mass populace.

Independent Thinkers, not surprisingly, do best in self-employment work geared around artistic or inventive pursuits. They don’t enjoy systems, rules, or guidelines from outside “authorities”. Ideal careers for Independent Thinkers would be the fine arts, craft-work, publishing, writing, or photography.

Shapeshifters love any career that offers them excitement and an opportunity to learn. They’re better at working with the public than the Independent Thinkers. Ideal careers would be travel (working as a tour guide or working on a cruise ship), being a talent agent or scout (making other people’s dreams come true), and any sales work involving a product or service that the Shapeshifter truly believes in.


  • Respect your decision for independence. Souls in this non-realm are generally nonconformists and rabble-rousers. The earth needs your strength and power right now, so please don’t dilute it by trying to fit in to any particular group (unless it comes naturally).
  • Teach freedom. Too many humans allow themselves to be controlled by reigning authorities. By your refusal to conform or be tied down, you teach them alternatives. The more that you can do to garner personal happiness and peace, the more effective your teachings will be. Remember that you teach first by example, and then formal teaching opportunities arise as you allow them.
  • Manifest, manifest, manifest. Because you tend to work outside of systems, you need to rely upon your personal manifestation power to sustain you materially. Remember that there are no neutral thoughts or words, so everything you say and think creates your future. Therefore, think about what you desire, not about what you fear.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series on Doreen Virtue’s book, Realms of The Earth Angels. It’s been my pleasure to share and discuss it with you. As always, please leave a comment for me if you have any questions or thoughts to share.

    …A Transcendental Eternal Being, the Ancient Wise ones. In this lifetime separating with a Woman/child i Loved so Deeply. My way was “Inside – Out”, hers “Out – Inside”, totally different from each other. Why is it so hard to “Let Go”…?? Is our “soul contract” not yet done….?, the signs about her is clear she’s comfortable without me, she’s moving on. Am i the weak victim or…? Thank you.

      Dear Warrior, I’m so sorry to hear of your separation from your partner. Opposites attract, and while difficult at times, it can be made to work. Have you heard of Twin Flames before? They are beyond soulmates, and are so deeply connected to each other. However, in my online research and of speaking with others in a Twin Flame relationship, there is usually one person who is a “runner”. They are the one who will talk about leaving, will leave and return, or who will leave for good. The deep connection and energy of the relationship gets to be too much for that person, and they seek to escape. Please look into it if this is something new to you. I send you love and blessings.

    I think i’m an Independant Thinker. The ressenblance is so real…
    My mom always reprimanded me the way I woudln’t do something because it is too popular. It would take her everything to buy me a new pair of pants or a shirt (I’m proud to be the only living teenager who got her mom nagging her to buy her shoes). And I was driving her nuts because of my environmentalist behavior. People sometimes ask me weird questions, me being a proudly 0% trendy, French-speaking (in French schools they hate French and speak English, believe it or not) bookworm.
    I knew I was already 70% Crystal Child and 30% Indigo, so now that I know that i’m a Evolving Soul/Shapeshifter, I consider myself officially a Hybrid.
    Thank you!
    PS: my brother is a Leprechaun (probably). Still remember the blue and green exploding pee-bottles in the bathroom prank thing.

    Before I used to wonder why I don’t seem to belong to realms… I would find qualities about me at one realm, but then I would resonate to another… And then to another. Some light workers believe I am so bored with life because I cannot stay in one group or affinity. Now I understand (although I can’t accept just yet) that I am an evolving soul. I know that I have been burned as a witch before, and way before that, I have been in the battle between the light and the dark before humans evolved as humans. The rest… I can’t remember anymore… Thanks for this insight.

    Thank you. It helps me to understand a little more what I am… Every time I try to relate to something or some ideas I find myself feeling more outside of the box more than anything else. Like two eyes observing myself and the rest humanity. I feel like every realms, every human, yet like no one. I do get angry when everyone is doing something without knowing why and I don’t like being a follower. I have constant feeling of loneliness… and I want to go back somewhere, but don’t know where exactly…
    All this makes sense to me, but stays very unclear at the same time. And the more I do observe myself and the world, the more I work on my personality, my capacity of looking over the ego and the mental and the 3D, the more my soul disintegrate in the infinity and lose touch and contact with everything. Hard to explain.

    Thank you

    I was at a flea market today when an individual I do not know chatted with me for a few seconds and then very seriously said..” Your energy is very good… Your a shifter” I had no idea what he meant but when he said it , I felt a huge feeling of fear, relief and I wanted to cry. It makes me wonder.

    It resonates with my heart to see this hear. I remember when I was much younger, just learning how to place people in their realms, I would cry at night because I didn’t go anywhere. I guess I felt like nobody wanted me (stemmed from some pretty severe abuse). The first time I learned about shifters, I sobbed. I fit, with a bunch of mixed matched misfits but I belonged somewhere. We are rare. Independent thinker/ shifter.

    This one of the better articles on shapeshifters I’ve found so thank you. Sometimes it feels like we’re a bit forgotten and a bit of and after note in regards to earth angels.
    The other day I was mediating on this and how I must have an original form. I had what I think might be a vision, of myself. Nothing more than an energy cloud of sorts, almost smokey but clearing and a bit sparkly.
    I feel like I’ve been an angel, an elemental fairy, a wise one. But I’m not a blended realm. I know I’ve lived in those realms but not truly, i was always just mimicking for growth.
    Yesterday I was looking at otherkin forms and found people there describing the similar things as shapeshifters. But I don’t know if I really fit there as most people in otherkin forms feel as though they are animals and have a physical attachment to their former bodies rather than a spiritual attachment. If that makes sense, I’m having a hard time explaining it.
    They explain it as two kinds of shape shifters, polymorph’s and shapeshifters. Shapeshifters have an original form like an animal and only have a limited amount of forms they can change into. Polymorph’s are formless in their natural state, however they naturally appear as what is most comfortable to them, a favoured form or realm. Polymorph’s can transform into any other energetic being entirely and just mimic certain aspects. Sometimes this is by choice or subconsciously in order to blend into surroundings.
    The description of the polymorph best suits me. I’m wondering if there are other shapeshifters out there who are like me? If anyone has described their true form lile i have. There’s so few articles on us it’s a little disheartening.

    I am a dabbler(shapeshifter). So far I have learned from angels, dragon, totems, gods and etc. Now I am having some physical changes(not shift) now I am awakening my dragon. From my inner dragon I’ve understood how to cure my emotions. many, many changes I’m having right now. For about 6 years. Today I’ve just found the shapeshifter type and I am happy for it.

    I think I may be sort of like an evolving soul! I know where I was born, as an incarnated elemental but I definitely know I relate to the star people and the wise ones. Always been a wanderer, always an outsider, but I’m very independent. this makes me happy.

    Wow truly amaxing as i had never heard of these being anything other than myth but makes complete snece to me and finally life makes since. Are we alien? I have always felt different even as if i was adopted or switched at birth . not many friends n daydreamed and lived in a fantasy world. Sience n space have been an interest since i was young my intuition has never been wrong ive seen things b4 they happen even telling others what was gonna happen but could never figure out how i knew n wanted to know y we dream what we dream as some r real some r weird n some terrifying.. Always connected with spirts or signs knew of God n familar n wanted to believe n then became a beliver but i still dont know the bible well as the lord was not in my home as a child. N experienced a hard life but recently had an spiritual awakening into which i know sprits or angels talk to me thru my music numbers and youtube. Im estatic as i always questioned nor knew whaty purpose in life was for. Im 48 now wish i had more time to do so much
