It’s not uncommon for mothers to think their children are special; it’s only natural. But what happens when your child is literally out of this world? 

Crystal, Indigo, and Star Seed children are a certain kind of special, displaying characteristics that push the boundaries of what is assumed to be our reality. Over the past number of decades, there has been a growing number of children who seem to come from a place beyond this physical universe, in order to bring the world into a new state of consciousness.

 Indigo Children Among Us

 The identification of Indigo children, who have a proclivity toward certain psychological and spiritual attributes, was first popularized by San Diego parapsychologist Nancy Anne Tapp in the 1970s. The New York Times reported that Tappe noticed the emergence of children with a vibrational color that she had never seen before — one that coincided with a new brand of consciousness. Indigo refers to the indigo-hued aura that the youngsters emit. Subsequently, the husband and wife team of Lee Carroll and Jan Tober, in their 1999 book "The Indigo Children", further popularized the phenomenon. Carroll’s reported conversations with a spiritual entity named Kryon cemented the concept of indigo children not only among the general public, but also with a variety of doctors, educators, and psychologists. According to Carroll and Tober’s book, indigo children “come in knowing who they are — so they must be recognized, celebrated for their exceptional qualities, and guided with love and care.”

What is an Indigo Child?

Carroll explained, “Children are often the greatest blessing in life, and also the greatest challenge. Many books have been written about good parenting and child psychology, but what we noticed was different…The thought that we might be seeing a new human consciousness slowly arriving on the planet now — manifested in our children — goes way beyond established conservative thought.”

Essentially, Indigo children share traits that include a strong calling to make the world a better place, an innate knowledge of better ways to do things. They are natural “system busters” with a non-responsiveness to controlling and/or authority figures, a feeling of natural superiority, and an innate love for nature, plants, and animals. As psychological counselors, Carroll and Tober had written a book that quickly became a guide of sorts for parents of unusually bright and active children, in a world where children are commonly overmedicated, attending schools devoid of creative environments, and in homes lacking sufficient time and attention from their parents.


Indigo Child Abilities Maureen Healy, speaker, and leader in the field of children’s emotional health working with highly sensitive children wrote, “Indigos are intuitive, strong-willed and very sensitive. They have always felt different and here “for a reason” although they may not know what that is yet.” Healy attributes the following possible traits to Indigo children — having had intuitive experiences, a desire for a more fair and just world, having stood up (maybe alone) for what they believe in, having an interest in living a life of meaning instead of just making money, feeling sensitive in both a physical and emotional sense and having unusual things happen around them. Other Indigo traits have been described as having a high IQ, acute intuition, self-confidence, resistance to authority, “old soul” qualities, sensitivity to chemicals and fluorescent lights, and disruptive tendencies. The latter is often diagnosed as an attention-deficit disorder or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. The New York Times cited Doreen Virtue, a former psychotherapist who has written books and conducted lectures on indigo children, saying that such youngsters represent a leap in human evolution. She said, “They’re vigilant about cleaning the Earth of social ills and corruption, and increasing integrity.

What is a Crystal Child?

  Crystal children are another exceptional category of human beings, known to follow their hearts as idealists in a world limited and troubled by materialists. This means that crystal children are apt to flow with consciousness, rather than forcing their way through life and hardships in search of material success. Their ultimate goal seems to be firmly established in making the world a better place. Like Indigo children, crystal children also exude an “old soul” persona. Characteristics of Crystal Children According to psychic researcher Troi G, crystal children, the offspring of indigos, began to incarnate in greater numbers at the turn of this century. They commonly have a penetrating gaze, sometimes possess usual-colored and often round eyes; are sensitive, both mentally and physically; suffer from allergies and sensitivities caused by environmental factors; are spontaneous, and sometimes act without thinking through the consequences; love to climb; have a good sense of balance; are natural huggers (even with people they only just met); have no awareness of personal boundaries because they feel connected to all of humankind and, indeed, all living things; are healers and psychics; love music and singing, but hate loud noise; aren’t comfortable in noisy, over-crowded places and suffer from sensory overload; are badly affected by negative events, both in their personal sphere and worldwide; become helpers, carers, volunteers, healers and teachers; exude love for their family, pets and their friends; and are autodidacts — preferring to teach themselves what they want to learn (rather than what they’re told to focus on).

Crystal Child Abilities To a trained psychologist, a great number of these qualities refer to introverted individuals, but those who hold tight to the concept of crystal children feel that there is also a tendency for these youngsters to want to uplift humanity and the natural world as a whole. Their entire lives’ purpose is devoted to a greater, universal cause. Nikki Pattillo, a former clinical microbiologist and molecular biologist who now works with psychic children, noted that the main purpose of Crystal children “is to take us to the next level in our evolution and reveal to us our inner and higher power. They function as a group consciousness rather than as individuals, and they live by the Law of One or global oneness. They are also advocates for love and peace on this planet” and “are mostly born into the Gold Ray of Incarnation and Evolution, which means they have access to gifts of clairvoyance and healing.


” What ARE Starseed Children?"

  Star Seed children — also called star children — represent the umbrella group of people who are said to have been sent here from all areas of the universe to help the Earth and humanity. They are reported to possess psychic, spiritual, and other extrasensory abilities, and are bringers of peace, topplers of corrupt systems, and shifters of dimensional consciousness, now and in the future. Nikki Patillo wrote that these children “have come here on special assignment to assist in this rebirth into a higher dimensional Earth.” Patillo noted that star children may be divided into the three categories of indigo, crystal, and rainbow individuals. “Star children have chosen specific parents who will help them develop their natural abilities. So if you are a parent of a child you know is different, your child probably chose you to help them help others in their spiritual path…

The most wonderful aspect of Star children is their willingness to take on the world and learn to make their own way through it. Star children will get to the point where they are able to mold society into something that reflects their energies and values. The truth that they hold and defend so well will reflect their integrity and spirituality.” Steven Aitchison, author of 100 Ways to Develop Your Mind, wrote that in the last 40 years or so, the Earth has been undergoing a new wave of energy, a wakeup call leading to a new dimension of existence of higher awareness and greater spirituality. He wrote, “Star Children play a big part of this collective wave, this energy shift. Star Children are well aware of why they are here and have many abilities that the human doesn’t have.” Thus, star children should be nurtured to grow their uniqueness and supernatural talents.

Common traits of star children are said to include clairvoyance and clairsentience, the propensity to trip electricity, manipulate the environment with the mind, telepathy, high intuition, heal with energy, detect danger, travel out of the body, act as channelers, and the ability to download information from other planets. Also listed as traits, according to Aitchison, are talents that a great many would still be resistant to believe, including the ability to levitate and teleport.

Are These Children Truly Special? The question of whether crystal, indigo, and star seed children represent the latest in parental wishful thinking or even denial, or whether there are indeed special individuals helping us advance into a new state of consciousness remains highly contentious. Still, it is undeniable that many children simply do not fit the mold of normality, as they are contributing a new way of interacting, living, and relating in order to bring humanity out of the current dark age of divisiveness and destruction. Whether you believe in the existence of these children or not, they are undeniably leading us all to a greater sense of responsibility for each other and the planet.

Indigo and Crystal Children are very sensitive to the energy balances in their environments. This can cause very ranged reactions in their emotions, and be quite debilitating in quality of life. Experiencing these peaks and valleys can be very trying, whether you are a parent or if you yourself are one of these gifted children. It is detrimental to their physical, emotional, and spiritual health to be yo-yo-ing back and forth, so empowering your Crystal or Indigo kids is extremely important for their futures surviving in the world.

How to Balance Your Crystal or Indigo Child’s Energy5 min read

By Gaia Staff | February 8, 2020 |

​ Indigo and Crystal Children, are very sensitive to the energy around them and having a balanced, stable energy field allows them to function at their best. It also continues to empower them to be a gift to the rest of the world. We bring you some simple, fun exercises that will help your Child’s energy be balanced on a daily basis.

    You can do these techniques that are easy enough for any child (or grown-up Child, for that matter!):

Electromagnetic Energy of Indigo and Crystal Children

   The energy in our body is electromagnetic, but this isn’t easy to imagine, and therefore can hinder the management of our body energy. To help children sense something which usually can’t be seen, have them rub their hands together rapidly. Then gently bring their hands almost together and apart several times to see if they can sense the energetic force between their hands.

   If they can easily feel the energy in their palms, have them playfully stretch it out and squeeze it together again or toss it to someone else to catch. Once your Indigo or Crystal Child has completed this exercise, it’ll be a lot easier to explain. Take time to help them understand how important it is to keep this energy balanced in their body and connected to the Earth’s energy.

Breathing Exercises for Crystal Children and Indigos

   We’ve mentioned this one before, but it’s so effective and important, we’re bringing it up again! The way we breathe has a huge impact on how grounded we feel. If we breathe shallowly through the chest, it kicks our nervous system into the stress mode. Keep an eye on your child’s breathing, and make it fun! You can start a game out of having your child take slow, deep breaths as they focus on different parts of their body.

Can they imagine breathing through the bottom of their feet, their heart center, top of their head or their stomach? As they focus on different areas of the body can they visualize any stress or negative energy leaving their body as they exhale? This practice isn’t too far off from reality at all, as our breath moves energy!

Seated Grounding

   Here’s another great exercise that gets your kid’s imaginations going! While your child is sitting in a chair or cross-legged on the floor, have them imagine that they have a tail just like a monkey touching the floor/earth. This is their grounding cord which is good for releasing negative energy and taking on positive energy.

See if they can set an intention to let go of negative energy down their tail releasing it into the earth. When all their negative energy has been released, ask them to bring up some of the life-giving earth energy. Do they notice the difference in the quality of energy flowing up from the earth? Conducting this exercise while seated outdoors can be a very positive experience!

Standing Grounding

   While your child is standing up have them imagine they are a strong, sturdy tree with roots that grow out of the bottom of their feet growing deep into the earth. Feel how solid and strong they feel when their roots connect them into the earth’s energy.

Can they bring up the earth’s positive energy through the bottom of their feet and up through their body until it spills out the top of their head like a fountain? What are some words they can use to describe how this positive energy feels when it is moving through their body?

Relax and Release Exercise

   Attract the excessive electromagnetic energy of your child’s body and release it. Rub the bottom of your child’s foot with a metal spoon in a counter-clockwise direction, keeping it firmly pressured rather than lightly. The counter-clockwise circles release over-energy helping the child to calm down and relax (it’s a principle of reflexology, after all!). This is an especially good exercise to do if your child is having trouble relaxing and falling asleep at night! They may like it so much that they ask for it over and over.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

   Emotional Freedom Techniques like tapping are important for people of any age! This EFT technique is known as the Karate Chop. When children become energetically reversed, they will self-sabotage or make choices which brings them harm instead of positive things. A quick way to balance their polarity is to do the Karate Chop with the side of one hand tapping the open palm of the other hand. If combined with a positive affirmation and a deep breath it helps to shift their reversed polarity.

Often the child is feeling frustrated so have them say something like this, “Even though I am mad about [fill in the blank], I like myself and I am still a good kid.” Any words which state the problem and some form of acceptance in spite of the problem while tapping the side of their hand appears to work in correcting reversed energy. This acceptance statement should be repeated out loud at least 3 times with the cleansing breath.



   Again, the benefits of these adult exercises can be had by anyone! Walking barefooted outdoors (weather permitting) is another good way of increasing your child’s groundedness. Have your child notice the different sensations of grass, earth, pavement, sand, rocks, and water as they walk. Stimulating the bottom of your child’s foot through massage or reflexology is another way to get them to tune into their feet and get them back into their body energetically.

Who Are the Pleiadians and What Is a Pleiadian Starseed?

November 07, 2022 — Ben Lewis

Who are the Pleiadians? Are they our distant relatives who live in the Pleiades star system? What is a Pleiadian Starseed? Is it a Pleiadian soul born in a human body here on Earth? Let’s explore the answers to these questions and more as we discuss Pleiadian spirituality. The Pleiadians are higher life forms from the Pleiades, which has some of the brightest stars in the sky.

These aliens define themselves as a collective of multidimensional spirit-beings whose mission involves assisting humanity through the process of spiritual transformation.

Are They Different From Us? Born within five-dimensional space-time, which overflows with light, love, and creativity, these soul healers possess incredible talents and abilities.

Certain features relate to the nature of their above-average dimensional existence and range from virtuosity to innatism.

Are They Related to Us? Some experts believe that the history of the Pleiadians demonstrates that they are the distant cousins of humans, which would explain their motivation for helping humanity achieve world peace and prosperity. The relation also forms part of the answer to the question, "What is a Pleiadian Starseed?" Some Pleiadians are spiritually identical to us and continually scour the galaxy for their Pleiadian twin flame.

Why Are Pleiadians Here? World Peace and Cosmic Unity. These otherworldly beings strive to connect with us to correct the course of Earth’s destiny. As we head further down the path of self-destruction, they are concerned with guiding us into a new, Spiritual Age of Enlightenment.

Is Their Population Growing? Every day, more Pleiadian Starseeds become aware of who they are as humans move toward a higher consciousness. You might even be a Pleiadian Indigo without knowing. Discover if you have Pleiadian energy and find out how you can completely awaken to fulfill your spiritual destiny.

What Is a Pleiadian Starseed? Pleiadian Starseeds' characteristics include the physical body of a human born on Planet Earth, but with an elevated soul from the Pleiades soul group.

Most Pleiadian Starseeds are beautiful, kind, and aware, which opens up more options for them. They are very emotional beings. We know of at least a few dozen kinds of Starseeds with various otherworldly origins. Many Pleiadian Starseeds tend to be imaginative souls that originated in the fifth dimension, lived many past lives, and reincarnated on Earth to advance mankind toward the Golden Age of Transformation with their higher knowledge and limitless potential.

What Is a Pleiadian Lightworker? Pleiadian lightworker is someone who actively joins the mission to lead mankind toward 5D consciousness and enlightenment by performing positive deeds.

Pleiadian lightworkers can be found often working hand-in-hand with non-Pleiadian lightworkers. 

Some typical signs of Pleiadian Starseeds connection include:

  • Intense longing for a greater purpose

  • Restlessness of the soul

  • Sense of not belonging in this world

  • Deep desire to do good

  • Drive and commitment toward bettering our world

  • Intense and sometimes uncontrollable emotions

  • Receiving downloads from the Pleiades that further one’s awakening

As we currently progress through the early dawn of human enlightenment, more Pleiadian Starseeds will awaken and display Pleiadian traits, putting them through a transcendental process that enables them to fulfill their collective missionFor Pleiadians to self-actualize, they must first undergo a crucial transformation known as an "awakening.” 

What Is a Starseed Awakening?

An awakening is an existential process that activates the spiritual, Pleiadian DNA encoded into a Starseed’s soul, permitting the manifestation of Pleiadian lightworker’s innate abilities. 

In the center of the Pleiades star system, there sits a bastion of learning for all otherworldly souls. Upon entering the sacred pilgrimage site, Pleiadian souls bloom into their ideal state, fully expressing their natural gifts of creativity and wisdom.

Once Pleiadian starseeds awaken, they often know things that seem impossible for them to know, allowing them to ascend to a higher state of consciousness.

When Will the Awakening Occur?

Evidence of the impending Awakening exists in Israel’s former Space Security Chief Yediot Aharonot’s revelation that a “Galactic Federation” is waiting for mankind to reach a certain level of awareness and understanding before they will invite us to join them.

As more Pleiadians awaken, they will attempt to fulfill their lightworking mission of diverting mankind from our destructive path so we can become a part of the Galactic Federation.

Origins of Pleiadian Spirituality

The Pleiades factor into the consciousness of several European and Asian civilizations, entering into ancient mythologies and guiding farmers and seafarers toward making a livelihood.

By contrast, many indigenous peoples acknowledge the Pleiades as central to their existence, including several Native American tribes. Members of the Sioux tribe have always believed that they appeared as the progeny of the Pleiadians. The Dakota people expect to travel to the Pleiades after death to live out the rest of eternity. 

The Iroquois pray to the Pleiades, beseeching the stars for contentment.

Cherokees profess that the Pleiades serve as the original birthplace for the ancestors of all Native Americans. Other Native American tribes that acknowledge the significance of the Pleiades include: Blackfoot, Carrier, Cheyenne, Chumash, Delaware, Haida, Inuit, Luiseño, Paiute, Salish, 

Shasta, Wiyot, Zuni.

Where Is the Pleiades Star Cluster?

The Pleiades are in the northwestern region of the Taurus constellation. The location of the Pleiades cluster, also known as “The Seven Sisters” or “Messier 45” (M45), has been of great interest to astrologers, astronomers, and other stargazers for millennia. The biggest Pleiadian star is Alcyone. Alcyone A is the center of a triple star system, meaning it has three stars, the biggest and brightest of which is Alcyone A. Taken together, Alcyone A, B, C, and D, are several times bigger and brighter than our sun. Adding to the complexity of the Pleiadian star system, Alcyone B and D are each separately composed of more than one star.

Now that we’ve answered “Who are the Pleiadians?” and "What are Pleiadian Starseeds?" shine a little bit of your own starlight on the subject. Show everyone where you come from and who your soul family is with a GFL Stars hoodie and its seven stars in alignment. A Pleiadian Starseed's mission is here on Earth!
