- Not to be confused with your own mother, McFly!
Earth angels are supposedly people who are angels that are sent to Earth to learn about and guide humans. They are supposedly spirit guides.[note 1]
The concept is totally not a repeat of the concept of indigo children. Doreen Virtue has a website on this.
Any connection to the 1954 hit single by the Penguins is presumably coincidental.
One size fits all
The Barnum effect is out in full force, as the traits of so-called Earth angels match what a lot of people would say about themselves.
Much like indigo children, the type of people who believe in Earth angels often are or know someone with ADHD/ADD, autism, and/or depression.
It is understandable that someone would rather believe they are a spirit guide rather than someone with ADHD/ADD, autism and/or depression, but that doesn't mean Earth angels exist.
How to tell if you're an Earth angel?
According to the website foreverconscious.com:
|Not feeling called to do any one thing ||This is totally not something that a lot of people feel.|
|Not feeling the need to get married or have children||This is totally not something a lot of people feel.|
|Likely to be bisexual|| There are a lot of bisexual people. On the bright side, at least this website isn't biphobic.|
|Being interested in philosophy, alternative methods of healing and the metaphysical||So people who are gullible enough to believe in alternative medicine? They are clearly great guides for humans!|

|Even strangers tend to vent to you their problems and frustrations and you delight in being able to help them||People naturally like to vent their problems to anyone willing to listen. Also, people naturally want to help each other. You don't need any mystical New Age woo to explain that.|

|Your emotions feel deep and heavy at times and can fluctuate from positive to negative; you have an understanding of both the light and dark emotions||Everyone's emotions fluctuate; this is nothing special!|
|You try to align yourself with societal expectations but you have a very hard time doing so, or the pursuit of these things can leave you feeling empty||No one fits in completely. This isn't unique. See social alienation above.|

According to thesecrettruthabout.com:
|Having many emotional ups and downs, strange physical aches and pains, many losses in the form of friends, jobs, family, finances, and much of anything else.||Does this mean the rest of us don't? Everyone has emotional ups and downs, everyone has strange pains and everyone has lost friends, family and jobs at least once! But never mind that, or suspension of disbelief will be really hard.|

|Continually misspelling words or superimposing sentences and spelling when attempting to write something, even though you may have been a master at grammar and spelling for most of your life||If you are a master of spelling and grammar, why are you making so many mistakes? Also, what does this have to do with being an angel?|
|Having times in your life where you felt "no sense of place"||Everyone has been to a place where they felt they didn't belong.|
