New-Age Children

​You may already know that indigo children are often strong willed, highly sensitive and intuitive with an innate truth detector and with little patience for bureaucracy or respect for authority which is undeserved. You may have learned that Crystal Children are typically quite emphatic, telepathic, quiet yet profound spiritual teachers with a deep connection to nature and the spiritual realms. Or that rainbow children come in with no karma, are peaceful, spiritually gifted from a young age and are excited to talk, and share what they know about spirit with love and joy.

The terms “Indigo,” “Crystal”, “Rainbow” and “Diamond” were given to these three generations, because they most accurately describe their aura colors and energy patterns.

Indigo Children have a lot of indigo blue in their auras. This is the color of the “third eye chakra”, which is an energy center inside the head located between the two eyebrows. This chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions and spirits.

Many of the Indigo Children are clairvoyant. The Crystal Children have opalescent auras, with beautiful multi-colors in pastel hues. This generation also shows a fascination for crystals and rocks. The Rainbow Children radiate rainbow energy, the kind that we were created with, to instill within us health and balance. The Diamond Children are made of purity, first incarnation souls with the most psychic capabilities. ​They will resonate to the highest frequency of Divine Pure Unconditional Love.

​Indigo Children can sense dishonesty, like a dog can sense fear. Indigos know when they’re being lied to, patronized, or manipulated. And since their collective purpose is to usher us into a new world of integrity, the Indigos’ inner lie detectors are integral. As mentioned before, this warrior spirit is threatening to some adults. And the Indigos are unable to conform to dysfunctional situations at home, work, or school.

​They don’t have the ability to dissociate from their feelings and pretend like everything’s okay . . . unless they’re medicated or sedated.

Crystal Children’s innate spiritual gifts are also misunderstood.

​Specifically, Crystal Children have telepathic abilities that lead them to talk later in life. In the new world, we will all be much more aware of our intuitive thoughts and feelings. We won’t rely so much upon the spoken or written word. Communication will be faster, more direct and more honest, because it will be mind-to-mind. Already, increasing numbers of us are getting in touch with our psychic abilities. Our interest in the paranormal is at an all-time high, accompanied by books, television shows and movies on the topic.

​So, it’s not surprising that the generation following the Indigos are incredibly telepathic. Many of the Crystal Children have delayed speech patterns, and it’s not uncommon for them to wait until they’re 3 or 4 years old to begin speaking. But parents tell me that they have no trouble communicating with their silent children. Far from it!

The parents engage in mind-to-mind communication with their Crystal Children. And the Crystals use a combination of telepathy, self-fashioned sign language and sounds (including song) to get their point across.

The trouble comes about when the Crystals are judged by medical and educational personnel as having “abnormal” speaking patterns. It’s no coincidence that as the number of Crystals are born, the number of diagnoses for autism is at a record high.
It’s true that the Crystal Children are different from other generations.

But why do we need to pathologize these differences? If these children are successfully communicating at home, and the parents aren’t reporting any problems . . . then why try to make it a problem?

The diagnostic criterion for autism is quite clear. It states that the autistic person lives in his or her own world, and is disconnected from other people. The autistic person doesn’t talk because of an indifference to communicating with others.
Crystal Children are quite the opposite. They’re among the most connected, communicative, caring and cuddly of any generation. They are also quite philosophical and spiritually gifted. And they display an unprecedented level of kindness and sensitivity to this world. Crystal Children spontaneously hug and care for people in need. An autistic person wouldn’t do that!

“In my book, The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children, I wrote that ADHD should stand for Attention Dialed into a Higher Dimension. This would more accurately describe that generation. In the same vein, Crystal Children don’t warrant a label of autism. They aren’t autistic, they’re AWE-tistic!”
-Doreen Virtue-

These children are worthy of awe, not labels of dysfunction. If anything is dysfunctional, it’s the systems that aren’t accommodating the continuing evolution of the human species. If we shame these children with labels, or medicate them into submission, we will have undermined a heaven-sent gift. We will crush a civilization before it has time to take roots. Fortunately, there are many positive solutions and alternatives. And the same heaven that sent us the Crystal Children can assist those of us who are advocates for these children.

Interesting periods of the pas 80 years:

​1940’s and 1950’s
These people had issues of security. They married young, stayed at their jobs for a lifetime. Happiness in marriage or career were secondary to security. The color was red and is of the ROOT CHAKRA — red slowest moving rays.

1960 and 1970’s
Less concerned with security. More interest began with drugs, sex and harsh music. Free love, bra burnings, equality for minorities and the sexes began in earnest. Orange is the color associated with the SACRAL CHAKRA — orange is a slower but not the slowest moving ray.

Things gain importance in this time with people acquiring personal property and power increasing the debt load. Women made great gains in the male dominated areas of the workforce, but at the expense of their femininity. They took on more masculine type traits. The color associated with this time is yellow, which represents the SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA — the speed of the rotation the chakras increases as the color changes from hot to cooler.

Early 1990’s
As we get closer to the Great Cycle change the time periods move closer together, because evolution in consciousness increased. The spiritual revolution grew at this time with people joining churches, temples or nonreligious spiritual groups. The Pope apologized for the churches past abuses. All this is due to the coming new millennium. Emerald-green is to color associated with this time period and the chakra is the HEART CHAKRA. The speed of this chakra increases over the last one again.

Late 1990’s
This was a time of the individual. People strove to become independent by playing the stock market, opening businesses or whatever else helped further this trait. Corporate downsizing helped move this trend along. These people left jobs, marriages or anything else that didn’t feel healthy or right. Their passions came to the forefront. Integrity towards themselves became paramount. These changes to truth and integrity are the work of the THROAT CHAKRA because they deal with communication. This chakra spins in the color of light sky-blue, and faster still.

Early 2000's
The spiritual revolution went into swing with increased interest in psychic phenomena, earthbound spirits, life-after-death and angels. Interest in psychic phenomenal comes through loud and clear with the THIRD EYE CHAKRA. This chakra spins at three colors, white, purple and primarily indigo.

Early 2010's
A new frequency creates a rapidly awakening energy within human consciousness to shift and activate a new cycle of spiritual evolution more interested in unity, living in energetic hamony and ascension to higher dimensions.
The realization of the eternal nature of the being is also the area of the CROWN CHAKRA, which is the gateway for higher consciousness and spiritual awakening in general. Violet — the color of this chakra is the color of cosmic awareness and consciousness.

All these special children are highly psychic and spiritually gifted. They are right-brain dominant. So, they feel instead of think. Other traits are artistically gifts, musical and mathematical thinking, learning through visuals not auditory. Many are emotionally gifted, and want to help other children in an nonjudgmental and openhearted way.
An indigo child is sensitive to others, because many times they know what the person is feeling. Being truthful to these children is recommended, because they can detect a lie through their inner knowing. Lack of integrity does not work for an indigo child. They will call you on it every time. So truth and integrity are what we have to give our children to help an indigo child grow and move in the direction of their lives purpose.
These children are very different then when we were children as the indigo prophecy states. Their combined IQ’s are higher than at any other time in history. But, they have higher scores in non-verbal intelligence and lower scores in verbal skills. To them the telepathic trips they take are their true schooling…night school. It’s why many are tired the next day, because they haven’t slept. What they learn during the day at human school is boring and obsolete. They turn to “night school” for their true learning… and many do it in secret.

You should know:

​Indigo Children are here to show us that, really, we are all Star Children. Every soul on the earth is at least a 7th dimensional spiritual being… And it’s time to reclaim this spiritual connection and power.
The Indigo’s mission is to point out that we have all chosen to attend the multidimensional school on Earth, and by intentionally opening ourselves up to the Divine, we can remember our true selves.
Indigo children remind us to access the collective love and wisdom of humanity, while at the same time helping us to leave behind all that no longer serves us.

The New-Age Children Types:

Please note that this is a guide, there are adults who have crystal characteristics. Some even think that people can transition their “growth” from one realm to another. For example: An Indigo can have more crystal characteristics as they get older. This is only in some cases.

Since 2002 all newborn are new-age children.

Please note that the waves of the different types are overlapping each other. On the different page there will be graphics that give you an idea of the timeline.​
Also the percentage of new-age children compared to all born is not considered in the graph.
