No Birthmarks Meaning

Most people have some kind of birthmark, however small, but some people don't have a single birthmark. There are a few meanings for this absence of birthmark. The first is obvious - it is the person's first incarnation, although unlikely. The next meaning is the person exited their last life from natural causes. The last meaning is the most profound. If no birthmarks are present, the person has spiritually evolved enough so they no longer carry the trauma of past lives.

Causes of Psychic Birthmarks

Birthmarks can have many causes. Past life trauma, special abilities, and being possessed are just a few.

Past Lives

Dr. Ian Stevenson pioneered work with children that remembered their past lives. He discovered many of them had markings or birthmarks that corresponded to their cause of death in a previous life.

Starseed or Indigo, Crystal, or Rainbow Child

Many people believe children being born since the 1980s have special traits that make them the next level of human evolution. These children are known as indigo kids, crystal children, or rainbow children. Other children, known as starseeds, are believed to have had incarnations on other planets. These people may have special abilities, such as psychic visions and healing powers.

Many of these children have prominent birthmarks. Not all have them, but many have birthmarks on their foreheads or in a prominent place on their body.


Many people believe birthmarks are omens that portend of the future, a belief that crosses many cultures. According to popular belief, the size, shape, and location of a birthmark may provide insight into one's life path, luck, finances, and relationships.

Cultural and Religious Beliefs

Some cultures have beliefs about birthmarks that may have a psychic origin.

  • In Japan, women were advised to not stare at a fire or their child would be burned, resulting in a birthmark.
  • Some cultures believe that if one has a birthmark, it foretells that he or she will die young or suddenly.
  • Some Europeans believe touching people who have birthmarks will bring them good luck.
  • In the Chinese culture, people believe birthmarks predict what type of future the person will have based on size, shape, and location.
  • In one recent case in India, a woman was stigmatized for a birthmark because people believed it proved she was possessed.
  • People didn't always believe birthmarks were positive. Many considered them devil's marks and during the Salem witch trials, they were considered proof one was a witch.
