My recent post, How To Help Your Child Defeat The Boogie Man, spawned a lot of questions about the current crop of kids, their (and our) ability to perceive energy, how they might differ from past generations and what changes, if any, need to made in raising them. One of these questions revolved around Indigo Children, also called Star Children or Crystal Children (and a whole host of other names). Because this is such a huge subject, I’ve split this post into two parts. Part 1 will explain what Indigo Children are and how they came about, while Part 2 will go into nitty-gritty detail of their characteristics and give tips for parents and educators on how to approach these individuals. Now, I’m happy to tell you what I’ve come to know (try and stop me), but because we’re talking about people’s children here, and they tend to take that subject VERY seriously (go figure), I feel I must offer a disclaimer.
[Disclaimer: If you have kids, I am not more qualified than you to tell you how to raise them, nor is anyone else. I offer what I know to be true (MY truth). It's your job to discern what part of that resonates with you (YOUR truth). So, if anything I say makes you think "Hmmm. That doesn't seem to apply to my child at all", then forget about that bit. I'm not here to teach you anything new, but to remind you of what you already know. Do what feels right for you and your child and don't let me or anyone else ever make you feel that you're doing it wrong. If you're reading blog posts like this, you're almost certainly doing just fine.]
Sifting through the bullshit
Whenever I write about a new subject, I generally do a little Google search to find out what’s been written about it previously. I don’t want to just reiterate what’s already been said a thousand times, and I also want to make sure I hit the topic from as many angles as possible. And Hoo Boy! Is there a lot of information out there about Indigo children. And I really don’t want to be talkin’ smack, but a lot of that information is pure and utter bullshit designed to prey on and make a lot of money off insecure parents. The problem is that a lot of that bull is mixed in with nuggets of truth, and so you may feel some resonance with it when you read it. The trick is to separate the truth from the crap. Let me get my shovel.
Here are a few of the, um, piles of poo I uncovered:
- Indigo Children are completely different from any humans that have come before them, almost like an alien race. (Um, no. Your kids are human. Just as human as you and everyone else. They don’t have different DNA and they’re not about to turn into pure energy and float away. I mean, seriously?)
- Indigo Children have super powers. They can read your mind and teleport and move through time and space. (We all have superpowers. Today’s kids remember that more than we do, that’s all. You did not give birth to superman. Unless you’re Supermom. In which case, maybe you did. While today’s kids are clearly more intuitive than any generation before them, we’re not going to have mass teleportations until society, as a whole, is ready for that. I’ll explore this point further in Part II.)
- Indigo Children are here to save the world (Yeah, like today’s kids don’t have enough pressure on them already. Also, the world does not need saving.)
- Indigo children are dangerous. The phenomenon of kids taking shotguns to school and shooting up their bullies has been blamed on their Indigo-ness. (This had to be a defense attorney’s idea. Yeah, your child is special. Like liquid nitrogen. Mishandle it and it’ll blow up the freaking world. Which it will then save. What is wrong with people?)
There’s no such thing as an Indigo Child. They’re just children
There, I said it. And yes, I will explain that, because I know that a lot of you out there are now thinking (or yelling) “That’s not true! I know my child is intuitive and special!!” I never claimed otherwise. What I’m saying is that there is not some different race of kids that has suddenly and inadvertently cropped up, like an aberration, ready to form an army of light (or whatever, depending on who’s telling the story) and march upon the earth to save us from our evil, irresponsible selves.
Today’s children are different. Just as every generation has been different from the one before. These indigo children are nothing more than a continuation of the evolution that has been ongoing since the beginning of time. In the post, There Is Not Destiny – Only Evolution, I explain that the global vibration is, and always has been, rising. As the old people with all their resistance (lower vibrations) die and the new ones with their clean, higher vibrations are born, the average vibration of the globe gets higher and higher. Because of this process, each generation is born into a higher vibrational environment than the last, making them naturally more apt to remember Who They Really Are than their parents.
Because higher vibrations = faster moving energy, this process is, and always has been, speeding up. That means that we are, right now, living in a higher and faster vibration than any generation before us. And the kids being born today, are being born into an energy more conducive to their connection than any generation before. The gap between the generations is getting bigger and bigger (the energy is getting faster at a more rapid pace), so the changes are becoming more obvious. This is nothing new. It’s just that we’re noticing it more than we ever have. And because of the higher vibration (which brings more clarity), we also have the ability to understand what’s going on in a way that we never could before. Everything is in perfect balance. That’s it, in a nutshell.
Not everyone has the same vibration
Now, even though the global vibration is always rising, not every human on the planet has the exact same vibration. How boring would that be? There will always be those who are just a bit higher than the average and those who are a bit lower. Those who are born with a higher than average vibration, often have a harder time. Why? Because while the vibration of Who They Really Are is really high, they are taught to focus on “reality” – which has a lower vibration. And the difference between those two frequencies will cause pain and discomfort. People who tend towards a higher vibration ask a lot more questions. They are not content to be kept on a need to know basis. They will not ignore what they consider to be an injustice. They will speak their truth, even if it’s controversial. They will not just accept things they don’t agree with. This kind of behavior would get you stoned to death in the not too distant past. In less extreme cases, it would get you labeled as a trouble maker in school, as a difficult employee in a bureaucratic organization, and as a general pain in the ass.
But higher vibrational individuals also gave rise to workers’ revolutions – they were not content to be treated like crap and to be kept powerless. This is how feminism happened, how revolutions were formed, how scientific and technological breakthroughs came about. For most of our history, it wasn’t really acceptable to be ahead of your time, and yet, the very breakthroughs that would get you ridiculed, exiled and even killed, ended up changing the world just a few short years later, when the vibration of the general population caught up and they gained enough clarity to understand the new knowledge.
This is why no one can agree as to when these Indigo children started appearing. 1982? 100 years ago? Both are true. We have always had individuals who were well ahead of the pack. Joan of Ark would’ve been classified as an Indigo child. So would Galileo, Einstein, Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Jesus, Gandhi, and on and on. Again, the only difference is that we are now noticing the changes of each generation more than we used to.
Higher vibrations will often run in families
While being born with and maintaining a higher than average vibration has nothing to do with genetics, this characteristic can run in families. This is because the newborn babies aren’t just affected by the global vibration, and that of the geographic location they’re born into (country, region, town), but also by the collective vibration of their family. This is why beliefs, both positive and limiting, can linger on for generations – each family member soaked up their energy like a sponge. When a family has a higher vibration, when some or even just one person in that family is more intuitive than the average human, it will create a higher than average vibrational environment for subsequent generations to be born into. So, your intuitive grandma raised your mother slightly differently than the norm, and she, in turn, then raised you slightly differently. This will have played out both energetically as well as in action. Perhaps your mother was more open to talking about things than your friends’ mothers. Or following your gut feelings wasn’t considered abnormal at your house. While it’s not impossible for a highly intuitive child to be born into a low vibrational family (this would provide that child with a tremendous amount of contrast and opportunity for growth), more often than not, family members tend to vibrate at similar frequencies.
This is the end of Part 1. In Part 2, I’ll move away from the theory and explore the specifics of how these new kids think and what their needs are in terms of parenting and education. I know you can’t wait to read more, so may I suggest that you keep yourself entertained by writing awesome comments and sharing this post with as many people as possible? You know. For the children.
