An interesting cultural phenomenon is occurring in which certain people, particularly children, are being called “Indigo Children”, “Crystal Children”, or “Rainbow Children”. At first when I began hearing these terms I didn’t pay too much attention. However, these terms keep on popping up and are becoming household phrases to many of us, so I began to take listen. I assumed them to realistically be more archetypal or abstract ideas or symbols as opposed to descriptors for specific individuals. Interestingly though, as I tuned into the idea of these distinct soul-types, I began to gain a fuller understanding of this topic and it’s relevance to our changing world and really starting to tap into them as energetic presences on this planet.
Basically Indigos, Crystals, and Rainbows are describing three soul vibrational types. Think of the astrological signs except broader categories with stronger implications- kind of like ayurvedic doshas. However, unlike like these traditional systems of people-typing, the idea with indigos, crystals, and rainbows is that they represent only a portion of society- perhaps a relatively small portion. All three of these types are associated with a soul type who is incarnating to the earth plane during this time of acceleration/re-building/ascension/planetary healing in order to in some way assist with or help catalyze the transition in transformation.
Indigo, crystal, or rainbow personality types have repeatedly been associated with children who are in some way developmentally, socially, or mentally ‘different’. It is a strong view held by many that children who are diagnosed ADHD or Autistic are or could be either indigos or crystals. The idea here is that crystals and indigos are representations of much higher than average vibrational frequencies and perspectives of consciousness. So think of a whole lot of electricity trying to pour into a tiny wire. All kinds of glitches may occur. This could be a similar idea to what indigos and crystals are experiencing- life in the physical human vessel which is constantly trying to ground really high frequencies, ideas, and surges into a body and environment that hasn’t necessarily adjusted to such frequencies yet.
So this will explain why we are seeing the newer generations being hyperactive, very sensitive, high-strung, emotional, and creative. They are literally processing a higher volume of source energy through their physical circuitry. This could also explain the connection between these high-vibe soul types and children who experience developmental delays, behavioral ‘disorders’, and mental handicap statuses. “Autistic” and “ADHD” are the labels medically used to describe the people who fit into their parameters. But the reality is that if you took ten children all diagnosed with “Autism” and placed them in the same room, you would notice a tremendous variation between the behaviors and energies of the individuals. This is why Autism is called “Autism Spectrum Disorder”. It has been recognized that within a huge range of behaviors and conditions, individuals can fall differently on that scale.
To me, it seems like that same concept can perhaps suggest how we might interpret the concept of Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow types. Meaning that what we have in general is a consensus feeling, at least within the conscious community, that the tides are turning and that consciousness is shifting. So it makes sense that more and more people would be incarnating into this plane who are especially attuned to the desire to live a life here in service to that shift OR that more and more of us are tapping into these soul aspects of ourselves, and activating them. In fact, it is said that rainbows are the ‘newest’ types of these special souls who are entering the earth community. The idea is that right now we have become relatively familiar with the energy expression of indigos. Now we are connecting more the the unique energies of the crystals and as we continue into the journey we will eventually become attuned to the even higher frequencies of rainbow beingness.
Generally speaking, the idea of an indigo is one who exibits the element of fire, someone fierce, energetic- a warrior spirit. Perhaps a little bit of a rebel. A refined rebel- fighting for the new rather than against the old. The violet/blue ray of creativity and expression of truth and the purple ray of intuition and the transition to higher consciousness are transitional energies becoming very manifest that this time. The crystals are the peace lovers, the refreshing cool drink of water type characters who harmonize and integrate. These people will continue in the path forged by the indigos. The rainbows, then, are those- at this point most rare- spirit descendants who come to embody and manifest the total vision of new earth.
After these, what next? How far does the rabbit hole go? I’m sure as we tune more and more into this type understanding of reality we will communally tap into more and more types of spirit expressions. There will undoubtedly be anchoring of more expansive aspects of consciousness into normal visible expression.
So how can you tell if you are an indigo or a crystal or a rainbow? It’s really up to you. It’s good to have these labels floating around so we can become attuned to the shifts happening and the energies catalyzing that change. And that’s all they are essentially- energies. Indigo, crystal, and rainbow are energies being crystallized and embodied, in a myriad of ways, by people all over the planet. My perspective is that we all inherently possess these energies and that we simply embody them to varying degrees and in different ways. It may be that certain individuals have truly made a soul level agreement about their core identity for life on this planet and thus are allowing their indigo, crystal, and rainbow energies to shine forth.
Either way, being aware of these energies creates a very interesting and dynamic cultural conversation by presenting a constellation of archetypal characters which the conscious global community can hold up as a mirror in which to clearly see itself and gain insight therein. These 3 soul types are giving us the opportunity to explore the vibrations we are expressing and relating to and to help give us relevant options of perspective as we go deeper into the path of planetary transformation.
