Okay, so if you’re not clued up on your spiritual lingo and/or you’ve never heard of either of these things then you’re probably thinking ‘what the fuck is this person on about??’, well we are on the brink of a global shift in consciousness and the Crystals and Indigos- followed by Rainbows (next to come!)- are key to this.
To briefly explain: Crystal Children and Indigo Children are specific types of light workers. Doreen Virtue wrote an amazing article explaining them in detail on www.angeltherapy.com/blog/-indigo-crystal-and-rainbow-children – I’m going to give you a summary but definitely head over there to read the full article!
So first off is Crystal Children. Crystal Children are the brand new light workers- most of them will be our children. They are here to light the way for humanity and show us the direction in which to head. Doreen says one of the first thing you’ll notice about a Crystal is their piercing blue eyes that seem to see into your very soul. Crystals tend to be very even tempered- I would describe them as very kind, gentle souls.
Now, Indigos… Indigos were mostly born in the 70’s, although they can be any age. Indigos are the warriors; they are here to bring about change. Their strong, fiery personalities mean they’re perfect for ‘fighting the power’ and saying ‘actually, this isn’t right, and it needs to change NOW’. A lot of Indigo’s are the children diagnosed with ADHD/ADD and similar as they tend to resist authority and conformity and are very headstrong so can be disruptive in formal settings.
‘But what does this have to do with your title?’ – Now I’ve explained briefly, we’ll get to the point! My daughter is a Crystal Child. And I am an Indigo. Both Crystals and Indigos are known for being Highly Sensitive, and with our totally opposing personalities this can lead to some struggles.
My daughter is a very typical Crystal Child – huge, blue eyes, hates loud noises, loves animals, very affectionate and loving, didn’t talk until late in life… I could go on listing traits but I’ll stop there. On the other hand, I’m a very typical Indigo- strong willed, dislike absolute authority, struggle to keep still, emotionally reactive and very intuitive. So basically, I don’t always understand or see eye to eye with my daughter and it can lead to upset. For example, when she insists on covering her ears because she can see a car coming up the road and I just want to keep moving so I emotionally react by getting frustrated with her, which then upsets her as she’s highly empathetic. Or when she doesn’t want to talk and tries to communicate by pointing; this worked when she was a baby but she’s now 5 and it drives me mad- it would be much easier for us both if she just used her words.
It’s difficult sometimes! But we make a good team and my daughter often keeps me in line. When I raise my voice or start to get angry she just calmly points it out to me – ‘mummy, why are you shouting?’ – And makes me stop and check myself.
As I’m sure my mum will tell you, raising Indigo’s is bloody hard work. We will test every parenting technique you’ve ever learned with our fierce personalities and innate desire to do exactly the opposite of whatever you tell us to, but raising a Crystal child is a joy – they truly shine a light on the world and are genuinely just beautiful, beautiful souls.
