I enjoy exploring ideas about who we are and why we are here, and I'm pretty sure at least one of my kids is a 'crystal child'.
I’m not a great supporter of labeling children, whether it be according to ability, disability, characteristics, or whatever. I was very careful to avoid categorizing and classifying my own children, preferring them to find their own place without being hampered or nailed down by labels. Therefore, I use the terms described here cautiously, and I exhort you to do the same. By all means, if you identify yourself or your child in any of these ways, that’s fine, but be judicious about how you talk to others about it.
A few years ago I would have sniggered at the idea that children come in ‘flavors’ like indigo, crystal, and rainbow, but I’ve had reason to change my opinion. Several reasons.
I Didn't Believe in 'Indigo Children' Until My Daughter Was Born
We started hearing the term ‘Indigo child’ a decade or so ago. My own mother was convinced that my mercurial-tempered daughter was an indigo. I was equally convinced that she wasn’t. The characteristics of an indigo child didn’t fit her at all. Not only that, but having been born in 2001, she was outside of the date parameters for indigo children. So I read a little, dismissed it, and then forgot about it.
Fast forward and I’ve been writing about divination, psychic topics, and psychic energy for several years and, during my research, I happened on a site dedicated to star children and light workers. I’d heard of light workers, but never star children. I was intrigued. As I read more, I discovered that star children included indigo children (cue some deep sighing from me), crystal children, and rainbow children. However, when I read the description of a crystal child, I knew instantly that it applied to my girl. I began to look into star children in more detail, and this is what I found.
What Is a Star Child?
Firstly, it’s important to know that a Star child is no more special than any other child. They are not more or less likely to be successful, or wealthy, or be healthier than their peers. Star children simply display certain characteristics that identify them as such. The colors were originally assigned because of the dominant colors that showed in their auras or energy fields. Indigos show a heavier preponderance of dark blues and purples. Crystal children have a clearer, more transparent aura and Rainbows, as their name suggests, shimmer with varying colors.
Star children seem to arrive in waves—it began with the Indigos, or so it is said. I wonder whether it has always occurred and whether we have always had waves of ‘different’ children who have a particular influence or impact on their generation? The Indigos began to have children and these babies also seemed a be a little different—they were identified as Crystal children. Now they are growing up and the third wave arriving now in the first part of the 21st century are the Rainbow children.
Star children tend to be outliers, they are leading edge. They push the boundaries of acceptability that were laid down by previous generations. Eventually, their traits and characteristics become the norm. Then the next waves arrives and the boundaries are smashed again.
The Arrival of the Indigo Children
The Indigos first started to appear in the late 1950s, although most were born in the 1960s and 1970s. One thing they often have in common is that their parents were the hippie generation, the first ‘live and let live’ adults. The parents who gave their children more freedom than previous generations. This is why I think that there were ‘waves’ of Star children prior to the Indigos. Each generation paves the way for the next.
Indigos are rebels. They are intolerant of unfairness. They smash down the old traditions in favor of no traditions. They are the rockers, the fighters, the protesters, the warriors. Indigos were feminists, anti-war, anti-politics anti-everything. They tore down the old order, tried to break up the establishment, and just caused trouble.
Characteristics of Indigo Children
- Strong willed and stubborn
- Have problems with authority
- Intuitive, often psychic
- Creative and unafraid of trying something new
- Lacks patience, often gets frustrated
- Despite being a rebel, they need clear boundaries and structure while growing up
- Can be insecure
- Often diagnosed as ADD, ADHD
The Crystal Children Come Forth
Crystal children began to be born around the 1980s to approximately 2010, though some are still being born at this time. There is never really a definitive time for Star Children to be born. They appear where and when they are needed to effect change.
The Crystals tend to share a physical trait and that is that many of them have large, luminous eyes that almost seem to gaze into your very being. My own daughter has eyes of an indeterminate color—sometimes they are brown, and at other times they are green with a tinge of indigo. They are deep and mesmerizing. When she was born, people would often remark that she seemed to be an ‘old soul’.
Crystals are pure of spirit and very connected to the earth. They are the huggers and the healers. They are in-tune with their own energy. They are teachers and facilitators. They have come to teach compassion, tolerance, patience, and gentleness. As babies, they are very sensitive, which is why they might be mistaken for Indigos. They often hate noise and sensory overload. Sometimes they are ‘late developers’, which just means that they have other means of communication. Occasionally they will be described as being ‘on the spectrum’.
Characteristics of Crystal Children
- Are usually born to an Indigo adult
- Touchy-feely, emotional
- Make decisions based on intuition and feelings
- Often have allergies and sensitivities
- Enjoy solitude
- Make lasting friendships
- Are good counselors and mediators
- Are often musical
- They connect with young children, animals and the vulnerable
- They put comfort well above fashion
- Often have to leave high-energy, crowded places because they feel overwhelmed
- May be gay or bi
- They have an affinity with water
- Are healers or have a calming presence
- Sometimes labeled as being ‘on the spectrum’ because they are so self-contained.
My Crystal Child
Of course every proud mother believes their child is special. And they would be right. However, I'd like to tell you a little about my girl.
She was born on September 11th, 2001. Yes, that day. We are in the UK, and far from where the awful events took place. However, from about 6pm GMT, she started crying and she did not stop for 12 hours. No one could comfort her. The medical staff could find nothing wrong. She screamed all night. It was heartbreaking and very, very scary. And then she stopped. And all was well.
When she was growing up, she seemed to know her own mind from the very beginning. She hated being out and about. Sure, she'd go out to play, but any family outing was spoiled because she wanted to be home.
Home-schooling seemed like a good option for her as school would have been a nightmare for all concerned.
Then she discovered music. She immersed herself into it completely. She taught herself guitar, wrote songs and learned tons. So much so that at 15 she was accepted onto a college Level 3 program with no qualifications. Currently, she's finishing up that course and waiting to start university in the fall.
She's magical in the sense she can make things happen. She's empathic and can't bear anyone else to hurt emotionally. She's kind, helpful, strong and determined. She's got those eyes. I'm convinced she's a Crystal.
Here Come the Rainbow Babies
Just as we are getting used to the Crystal children, along come the Rainbows. Rainbow children’s mission is to heal and re-balance humanity and the planet. They are able to reflect our distorted values back at us, thus they are revealers of the truth. Rainbow children are usually seen as ‘different’. There are not too many of them around just yet so we will all be getting to know them over the next decade or three.
Rainbow children have a higher vibration than the rest of humanity. They will be the ones who bring gender fluidity; refusing to be categorized or contained. We are told that they are ‘new souls’, who have never incarnated previously, yet they arrive almost completely spiritually evolved.
Rainbow’s are usually the offspring of Crystals, so they will have at least one parent who ‘gets’ them. However, the rest of society, even Indigos will have difficulty coming to terms with the new world that the Rainbows are ushering in. There will be a lot of resistance to their visions and actions.
Rainbow Children Characteristics
- Often appear to be in their own world
- Are loving and generous
- Sweet, but will a will of steel
- Brave and able to withstand hardship
- Often have to care for others
- Likely to be telepathic
- High energy, both physical and psychically
- Large eyes, similar to Crystal children’s
- Late to start speaking, sometimes three or four years old
- Gender-fluid; everything-fluid
- Don’t care what people think of them.

Questions & Answers
Question: I think i'm a crystal child, born in 1997. Musician, singer, intuitive, practising meditation and transfering energy, emotional, have empathy, looooooove animals and children, making lasting friendships, leave crowded places after 2 3 hours, have allergies, Sagittarius, not having patience sometimes, curious. Am I a crystal child?
Answer: It sounds like you are a perfect example of a crystal child.
Question: I believe I am a crystal child. I am definitely an empath. So I feel what others are feeling and sometimes it’s hard to differentiate, I will, for example, be super sad for no reason. Could you give me a tip on how to stay true to myself, as I break myself down to build up others?
Answer: The one important thing you must know is that to be able to help other people emotionally, you have to be in tip-top condition yourself. So it might be a good idea to put together a 'package' of meditation, self-protection rituals, perhaps a few well selected crystals, and maybe learn some Switchwords:
You can have fun with all this. None of it has to be serious. But it must confer emotional benefits. So start by researching meditation, then look for a simple protection spell or ritual, then see how you go from there. Put a self-care routine in place and you'll be fine.
Question: Is it possible for an Indigo and a Crystal to birth a Rainbow child? I was born in 1981 to two "hippie" parents. I fit 96% of the characteristics of an Indigo Child. My girlfriend was born in 1990 and displays the characteristics of a Crystal Child. We have a daughter who was born last year, she displays all the characteristics of a Rainbow Child. Just wondering if its possible?
Answer: I'm sure it is possible, highly likely even, for your daughter to be Rainbow. It will become more apparent as she gets older.
Question: I'm a lightworker, and my son was born in 1990. He is definitely an indigo child. Shouldn't we be more aware of the timelines for their incarnations?
Answer: It isn't possible because there's no quantifiable scientific data. These descriptions are based on subjective descriptions of personality and behavior.
There are no hard and fast guidelines regarding birthdates for each wave of star children. There will always be those who seem born out of time. It's just the way things are.
Question: Am I a Crystal child? Born in 1989, Sagittarius, gay, married to my husband, teacher with passion, light sleeper, sleep 5 hours a day. I am very sensitive to music and can play by ear, short-tempered, can make very strong mathematical predictions.
Answer: If you think you are a Crystal, then you are. It sounds like that to me.
Question: I think I’m an indigo baby. Is it possible that my son is a crystal and my daughter a rainbow baby, because we each fit the description very much? Also, if we all are, what does it mean?
Answer: Yes, if you fit the descriptions, you are very likely to be indigo, crystal, and rainbow. I think people 'arrive' in clusters like this, and tend to gather in certain sectors, such as universities, locales and anywhere else where people get together with common goals. So it seems to be a logical extension that it would happen in families.
What it means is that these waves of people are gradually changing the world by expressing new ideas, new concepts, and new perspectives.
Question: Everything except allergies is true to me, but I was born in the 70s and wouldn't say my parents were indigos. So I feel often like I've fallen out of the world. I have much younger friends, some from the 80s and even 90s. Does that make any sense?
Answer: There will always be individuals who feel as though they were born in the wrong time, and maybe in the wrong circumstances. The trick is to find the best way to express yourself, whether it be art, writing, journaling or some other creative outlet.
Question: I was born in 1986. I am very connected to animals and nature. I am not musical but I am a writer and an artist with ceramics. I am an empath--I feel emotions and react to those feelings of people, animals, and objects. I am nurturing by nature; when I feel any form or hurt or anger in another person I want to help them. I am very emotional and need to cry to feel recharged. Am I a Crystal child?
Answer: You sound like a typical Crystal to me. Revel in your crystal-ness and all the talents and gifts that you have.
Question: I can refer to both Crystal and Indigo. It confuses me. What does this mean?
Answer: No doubt there will be people with overlapping traits. Remember these are guidelines and theories. It's not set in concrete.
Question: I have a child who doesn't fit in. She is strong-willed and she has a very good connection with animals. She is loving and would do anything for anybody she knows (even if she hates them). She is an introvert. What do you think my daughter could be of rainbow, crystal, or indigo children?
Answer: She's just herself. You don't need to attach a label to her. She may demonstrate traits of any of the star children described above. Just see how she matures -- she might show other gifts as she gets older.
Question: I am an Indigo. I have two daughters and a son. My daughters were born in 2009 and 2016. My son was born in 2012. My eldest has difficulty fitting in. At the age of three, she spoke like an adult. She is talented as a musician, linguist, artist and is already an activist for human rights. My youngest, although not yet three, is also wise beyond her years; fearless and stubborn. My boy is a sensitive soul; shy and his own worst critic.. Which categories do you think they fall into?
Answer: Your daughters both sound like versions of Crystal. You will probably have to wait a couple of years before being able to know which your son falls into. Remember that not all children fit these limited categories, and there are even more coming along.
Question: Is it significant that I feel connected to Indigos but tests prove me to be Crystal child?
Answer: Tests? I expect you mean psychological or personality tests. What do you think? Are you attracted to Indigos? Or you feel aligned with the Indigo character? I don't think it means anything much other than you recognize the attributes of Indigos. Don't worry about it; just be yourself.
Question: I think my daughter might be an indigo child. Is this possible if she was born in the 2000s?
Answer: Yes, it's possible your daughter is an Indigo. The years given are just rough guidelines.
Question: My daughter is a Crystal, while I'm a mix of Indigo and Crystal. My three-year-old son is a rainbow; charming and irresistible, yet he seems to be aggressive when he gets frustrated. He can change the general mood quickly. Do you have any advice for our family?
Answer: I would put aside the idea of Crystals, Indigos, etc. and get some strategies in place for dealing with your son's aggressive behavior. If you don't deal with it now, you aren't going to be able to cope with it when he's fourteen.
Question: What abilities do crystal children have?
Answer: Crystal children have heightened intuition, and as they grow up, they can choose to develop their psychic skills (or not).
As far as other abilities go, it depends on their upbringing, their motivation, aptitude, and attitude. They can achieve anything they put their mind to.
Crystal children will probably change career paths several times during their working life. This is simply because their priorities and viewpoints are always shifting.
Question: I am not sure whether I'm an indigo or crystal child? Born 1991, Libra sign, INFJ, I value my time, 3rd eye is open at an early age, intuitive, open to understanding people, and why certain things happen. I'm spiritual, into art, music, poems, books. Also sports and up for new challenges. Don't like having my personal space invaded. Love animals and kids. Often get surreal and odd dreams. I seem to understand situations before they actually clarify themselves.
Answer: Indigos are warriors, they fight for causes. They are blunt speakers and don't care what people think. You don't sound like that, so I would say you are Crystal, but you will be able to intuit which one you are. And, of course, you could be a mix of the two, with one dominating.
Question: I'm an Indigo and on the 11th of this month, I got a niece. She already has big eyes always open and is very communicative. How can I be sure she is a Rainbow?
Answer: You can't be sure yet. Why not wait and see? The thing is, if you believe she is a Rainbow, you'll always be looking for signs that she is one... and Law of Attraction will ensure that you see those signs, whether she is or isn't. Is it terribly important to you?
Just let her be who she is going to be and put all that wondering to one side for now. Enjoy your new baby niece.
Question: I don't know what exactly am, born 1996 and love music and singing. I feel the song's feeling and the melody, I have shy/introvert behaviour, hate crowded places, have allergies and am very sensitive emotionally. Also, children and animals love me. So can you tell me, please?
Answer: You sound like a Crystal child to me.
Question: I feel emotions very deeply. I've always been told I'm too sensitive. I often feel different and as if I belong in another world. Why is this?
Answer: Perhaps you are a star child - which one resonates most with you?
Question: I was born in 2004 and I show more signs of a Crystal Child. I love animals, children, music. I am clairvoyant and an empath. I have allergies, hate crowded places and stuff like that. Even because of my birth year, can I still be a Crystal Child?
Answer: Of course. I have mentioned several times in the questions and comments that these are mere observations. There are no definitive lines between the various star children. It's impossible to pin down. Just see the given categories as guidelines that are as fluid and individual as the people they describe.
Question: Is it possible that an Indigo who had their first child in their late 30's could have a child that is a Rainbow, skipping the Crystal generation?
Answer: I'm sure it's very possible. Remember that these 'categories' are based on ideas and observations of shared traits and characteristics. There are no clear lines.
Question: I believe my mother is an indigo child and I am a crystal child, but my sister who was born in 1996 is more of a mix between us. Is that possible? Also, why is it only women in my family I am able to identify?
Answer: Yes, it's possible that your sister is a mix. And perhaps it is only women in your family who show these characteristics. There's no reason; that's just how it is.
Question: I was born in 1976 but my traits are more in line with a Crystal. I have a couple of Indigo characteristics, but also all the crystal traits listed. Can you be two at once?
Answer: You may be an outlier. I'm sure there have always been Crystal (or Indigo or Rainbow) children, but they have arrived in greater numbers in waves. Yes you can have the traits of both.
Question: I was born in 1957, have been diagnosed as ADHD, and fill most indigo qualities, but illness has stood in the way of my ability to accomplish all the idealistic goals I've had. I am wondering along with some research I've seen if these are in part evolutionary changes?
Answer: I think that is exactly the case. These groups come in waves and because of their numbers they manage to change attitudes and policies. Then the next wave comes and things change again. I have no doubt that there are physical changes as well. It's plain to see that people are getting taller. Interesting.
Question: What are your thoughts on "cusp" children? I was born in 86 and have indigo traits, but a lot more crystal traits. Almost everything you listed, actually, but still have the need to stand up and rebel against what is wrong with our societal structure.
Answer: I think there are many who share the traits of two or three of the 'stars' listed above. You 80s children have the power right now, so do what you must do.
Question: Can someone be a mix of both rainbow and crystal?
Answer: Absolutely. You have to remember that these aren't cut and dried labels or categories. We only use these words to distinguish characteristics. So yes, it's possible to have characteristics that range over two groups.
Question: Is it possible to be a Crystal and Rainbow child? My friend and I show most of the traits of both, but she was born in 2004 and me in 2005.
Answer: It may well be possible. The year of birth doesn't really matter, they are just guidelines.
Question: Can a rainbow child be musical?
Answer: Of course. You have to understand that these observations aren't 'rules'. There are no hard lines involved. It's all flowing and amorphous. We just use the terms, indigo, crystal, and rainbow to describe the characteristics of the unusually frequent number of children who display them. Don't fall for the idea of labels.
Question: Because I was born in 1970, can totally see Indigo in myself, but honestly feel Rainbow because I surround my self with color, I'm Aquarius with energy healing abilities. Also I'm an empath and intuitive. Can a 49 yr old woman be multi-generational?
Answer: I'm sure of it. Remember that the descriptions above are just for convenience. In reality the patterns are shifting and changeable. Nothing about Star Children is fixed.
Question: I always thought I was an indigo child but I was born in 1994 and the star sounds a lot like me too. Plus neither of my parents are indigo. I’m a very strong empath with severe depression and anxiety, bi/genderfluid, and can easily communicate with animals, which one am I?
Answer: You don't have to be any of those. They really are just loose categories, and no-one has to put themselves into a category or give themselves a label. If I had to choose one for you, it would be crystal. It depends on how many other crystal characteristics you align with. Or, you might be in a class of your own.
Question: I just want to thank you so much for this article. I have recently been tapping more into my intuition and abilities, therefore I have recently discovered these waves. I strongly resonate and believe that I am a Crystal Child, and my daughter could most definitely be a rainbow. I understand these are brief guidelines, so does that mean we don't have to display all traits listed?
Answer: You are welcome. No, I believe there are many more traits that I haven't touched on in the article. None of them are carved in stone; they are just general guidelines.
Question: I was born 1985, I'm not sure if I'm crystal or indigo. All I know is I'm a great healer. I've been talking to my guides and angels since I was 12. I think I'm an indigo because of my low-frequency vibe, only that I don't do protests or things like that. So I'm confused. But I believe some of my kids are crystal, and my other two kids are rainbows. Am I an Indigo?
Answer: If you identify with most of the characteristics of the Indigo, then that's what you are. You don't have to be a protester to be angry at the injustices in the world. Indigos definitely have a warrior, non-conformist spirit about them, even if on the surface, they appear to be law-abiding citizens.
Question: I think I am mix of Indigo and Crystal. Is it possible to be both?
Answer: Very likely. I think the characteristics of star children are not always clear cut or easy to define.
Question: I know that Indigo children were born before the 1990s but I was born in 1996 and share many of the traits of an adult Indigo. I researched Indigo children when I was much younger. Is it possible I'm an adult Indigo or a Crystal child?
Answer: Yes, it's possible you could be either. The years given are just a guideline. There will always be outliers born outside of those parameters.
Question: My son seems to fit the Indigo characteristics more than the others and he was born in 2013. Is it possible?
Answer: It is possible, but remember that not all children are star children. He may be a normal, rambunctious six year old.
Question: I'm confused: I have characteristics of an indigo and crystal child. What's that supposed to mean? Is that even normal?
Answer: If you have a quick glance through the questions and answers here, you'll see that many people say that they feel as though they are 'half and half'. It's common among star children. The thing you need to remember is that the descriptions and names have been designated to help people know why they are how they are. There is inevitability that there will be blurring of the lines because humans don't fall into neat categories. Just go with it.
Question: How definite is the info about the Rainbow kids not having ever incarnated before? My youngest is Rainbow to a T, but has detailed past life memories.
Answer: Nothing is definite. It was a theory I came across while researching. Personally, I don't think anything about these classifications can be stated as fact as it's all subjective opinion and observation. There have been no scientific tests, studies, or investigations that I know of.
Question: Born in the early 1950s. Can I be an Indigo child?
Answer: You could be. It depends if you were a difficult child and have a rebellious, warrior spirit. If you rebel against authority. If you are a natural leader... and all those qualities that make an Indigo stand out from the crowd.
Question: I have been put “on the spectrum” many times by different professionals. It seems like almost all of the characteristics of each type of child apply. How do I know which type of Star Child I am?
Answer: You may not fall into one single category, and that's fine. Just be yourself - you don't need a label.
Question: At this point I'm starting to believe that I'm a Crystal child. I was wondering if I could have given birth to two Crystal children as well? And my two- year old grandson is a Rainbow.
Answer: I'm sure it's very possible your children are Crystal and your grandson is a Rainbow. Usually, the characteristics become much clearer as they get older. Often they disappear if the person was not a Starchild in the first place.
Question: I think I might be a mix of Rainbow and Crystal because I love helping people and I hate seeing people sad or mad. I was born in 2004 I’m strong willed, I’m curious, I feel different than everyone else around me like I’m an oddball but I still get along with people. What would I be?
Answer: I couldn't say without knowing you better. You'll have to determine whether you are one, or a mix of both. Of course, you may not be a star child, just a lovely quirky human being.
Question: My son has soulful eyes and something about him that makes it impossible not to like him. He is brilliant, making A's year long, but is on the high-end of the spectrum; not talking until three, but reading before two years. Could he be a crystal child?
Answer: I'm sure he is, but time will tell. Crystal children are very likable; there's something irresistible about them. They wear vulnerability like a cloak of goodness, yet at the same time, they have a core of steel. He'll make you proud.
Question: Is it possible to be all of them (Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow children)? I was born in 1987 but I actually feel all of these and can relate to everything on each. I'm a lost soul!
Answer: No you aren't. You're a unique and inspiring individual. Throw away the idea of a label.
Question: I think I'm a Crystal Child and, before I even read the line that they are usually born to Indigos, I knew my mother must be an Indigo! I often bump heads with rainbow children, in the strangest ways, it's weird; specific people come to mind. I can't explain it but this makes a lot of sense. Is that something that you hear often?
Answer: Not really, I haven't heard of clashes because both Crystals and Rainbows are tolerant and peace-loving. Now Indigos, they'll clash with anyone.
Question: I was born in 1975 but had kids late. My oldest (born 2014) is more of a Crystal. My youngest (2014) a Rainbow. Is it possible for an Indigo to have a Rainbow child? Or to have a Crystal child born many years too late?
Answer: Yes, to both your questions. The years outlined are simply a guideline as to where someone might fall on the star child spectrum. When those children came forth in numbers. The more I look into this, the less defined the categories become.
Question: I am for sure a Crystal child! Empathic, love to be by myself, can't really tolerate high energy places/people, definitely put comfort over fashion. But I'm curious, my parents were born in the late 50s and I feel that neither of them are Indigo children. Is it possible that they weren't Indigo children but that I am a Crystal child?
Answer: Yes, it's not imperative that parent/s of a Crystal be an Indigo... sometimes Star children seem to 'come from nowhere'. It's as if they have no resemblance, trait-wise, to the rest of the family. Perhaps it's where the idea of 'black sheep of the family' came from originally.
Question: I believe I’m an indigo. My question is my parents do not fit the description of any of the above. Could they birth me even though they are not star children?
Answer: Yes. Star children's characteristics are not dependent upon their forebears. And most Indigos seemed to 'come from nowhere'. And, of course, we don't know what previous generations' traits were.
For some reason, Crystals often seem to have an Indigo parent, but that may be because Indigos provide the right environment - they have already been through the trials and tribulations and are able to nurture their sensitive offspring. I don't believe it has anything to do with biology, but, of course, I could be wrong.
Question: I think I might be an Indigo or Crystal child I have empathy but not sympathy. When I give advice, people tell me I’m am an old soul or wise beyond my years. I am a Cancer and born in 2007. I enjoy spending time with people older and younger than me rather than my age. I am easily confused and have lots of curiosity I also get frustrated easily. My eyes are kind of small. What do you think?
Answer: It doesn't matter what I think; it's how you see yourself that matters. Indigo and Crystal are quite far apart in characteristics. Indigos tend to be the 'difficult kids', always questioning and challenging, whereas Crystals are more gentle and accepting; they have learned that there are other ways of making changes happen.
Question: It sounds a bit insensitive to use "rainbow" when the term "rainbow baby", and "rainbow child" already has such a strong usage for when a healthy baby is born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or short-lived baby, the healthy baby is their rainbow baby. Could you use a different term for the most recent generation?
Answer: It's not my term, I'm afraid. It's been around a while now, at least since 2010. If you do a search for 'rainbow child', you will find that the majority of results are related to the topic presented in the article.
Question: I think I am a crossover between an indigo and a crystal child. I have both qualities, born in 78, and feel that the kids born in 78-82/3 are crossovers in many aspects. What do you think?
Answer: Yes, it's likely. Please remember that the qualities described have been split up just to help differentiate between the 'waves.' So it makes sense that there will be people who have a little of this and a little of that.

I'm copying this comment in as it was sent directly to me.
Thank you to moongoddess76:
I found your article by chance, a fascinating read on Star Children. I believe I’m an indigo child with some traits of crystal. I was born in 1976, the eldest of 6 and the odd one out. Born with a rare blood group, extra fingers and bright green/blue eyes and contrasting very dark hair. My eye colour seems to change like a mood ring. Growing up I could see and feel things and was always drawn to the spiritual side from a young age whilst the main religion was Catholicism. I always seem to and still have a deeper intuition than the others. I would do things that at the time would seem odd and make no sense then a bit later that day all made sense. If I put my mind to things I can make them happen but also have to be careful as if I think of things they do tend to come true, so I’m mindful to keep some of my thoughts to myself. I am a natural leader and old soul someone once referred to me as a matriarch. I am very protective, maternal, supportive and I can tune into people and get them to open up to me building a bond. This is something I’ve discovered over the last few years. I’m learning about my power, channeling this into healing as I really feel my purpose on earth is to help others and show them how to appreciate our surroundings. The article rings so true to me. I just thought I was a bit odd but it makes sense now. My close friends all have spiritual traits and explains why we’re drawn to each other. We’re all old souls who have known each other in past lives. My hubby is the same, that’s another magical story.

Hi SupremeQueen, the above is only a very brief overview of a complex paradigm. As I say in the article, there is never a definitive time for each starchild to come forth. Also, it's highly likely for some to have characteristics of more than one kind.
The only reason we call each one by a different name is because it is natural for humans to categorise. In truth, there are only star children. They evolve with the times they are born into.
SupremeQueen on August 13, 2020:
Heyo- I am a little bit confused. I was born in 2004 but show signs of an Indigo and Crystal child. While I probably have Adhd, am really stubborn and hate the feeling of standing beneath someone, I also show my affection through physical contact, do very good with small children and have the same large eyes that change colour depending on how the lights hit them (Usually blue-green with a few grayish spots and a yellowish ring around the center, in the sunlight ocean-like green according to other people, and in the dark they seem yellow with Green undertones and a purple ring around the Iris). Is it possible that I could be a mix of an Indigo or a Crystal or am I tripping?
Shadowsight on August 12, 2020:
@TheSunMagus. That is nearly a perfect description of my daughter.

Thank you for your quick answer

Thank you for your quick answer
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 09, 2020:
Hi Nadja, it's not something I've seen, but it sounds beautiful. And you might well be right about it being an indication.
Nadja Pagon on August 09, 2020:
When my daughter was aporoximatelly 5, I suddenly saw colourful sparkles around her. I do not see auras of people, but at that time it was obviously shared with me. I started to observe her with an idea of a rainbow Child and now (she is 9) see a lot of characterictics of a rainbow.
Is rainbow aura an indication?
Thanks and a lot of greets from Slovenia
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 25, 2020:
Hi April, what a (mostly) lovely story. It seems that your step-daughter is connected to you and it was all meant to be. You have changed the world. xx
April M. on June 25, 2020:
Born in '58 I identify as Indigo with some Crystal. I believe every life has a purpose. In my mid-20's I met a man with a 10 yr old daughter. I have no children of my own. She was so like me it was astounding. We even share the same first & middle name. Neither of her parents "got" her. I knew this was why I was put here. I stayed with this alcoholic jerk for 8 yrs. in order to raise the child. She is definitely a Crystal / Indigo who became a hospice nurse & raised 2 beautiful Crystal / Rainbow boys. This is how we change the world.
Paul Russell on June 24, 2020:
I'm an indigo Child, to the core.
alicia on May 03, 2020:
i still dont know which one i am because i feel like i might be a mix of all 3 because i have some characteristics from each of them.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 21, 2020:
No, I haven't, BB, but there will be people who are a mix, I'm sure.
Blisful Breaux on April 20, 2020:
Have you heard of something called a 'tranzit child"? One who is supposedly a little of all 3?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 11, 2020:
Does it matter, Sheeya? It really isn't important.
Sheeya on April 11, 2020:
My question is also similar i have both characteristics of indigo and crystal so i m confused which one of them is me please help me
Chris on March 09, 2020:
So very interesting. I have a granddaughter who i am sure is a crystal child. She fits it to a tee. I've only read the article three times so i have to read it a few more times. Thank you
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 09, 2020:
Hi Shannon, he sounds like a star child... but one who defies categorization. He's unique.
shannon6 on March 09, 2020:
Hi! I have triplet boys born in 2000. One of them has always been different, yet I don’t feel like he doesn’t fit in. He’s a psychic, can communicate and feel things and energies the rest of us can’t.
He is sweet, friendly and intelligent, but he’s also a challenge. He’s strong-willed, takes social and environmental issues seriously, has been a vegan for 8 years now, is fiercely against war, fossil fuels, IMF’s policies, and so on. He’s not exactly conciliatory, he usually takes a side and fights on its behalf. These seem to be indigo traits, right? He’s wise and mature beyond his years. Animals and babies love him, he volunteers in children’s hospitals and nursing homes. He’s a talented pianist and is super creative. He’s affectionate, positive and warm. He’s gay, and has both masculine and feminine traits. He paints his nails, and he’d wear skirts and dresses as a kid, I think he’s in the spectrum of gender-fluidity, but he’s never been one for labels.
People always tell me he’s something else. I think he might be a star child, but I think he has some indigo, crystal and rainbow traits, is it possible that he’s a mix or maybe he’s just a kind of his own?
Patrick Gabriel from Santa Rosa on December 15, 2019:
I think I'm an Indigo child, born in 1964. Artist, natural healer, intuitive, practicing meditation and transferring energy, emotional, have empathy, love animals, making lasting friendships, leave crowded places after 2 to 3 hours, have allergies, not having patience sometimes, curious. Am I a Indigo or crystal child?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 27, 2019:
Hi Indigo, you don't need to fit into any category. Just be your unique self. xx
Indigo Garnett on September 26, 2019:
I was born in 1969 and I hate Government, Religion and anything that restricts me from being who I am. I fit the profile of the Crystal and the Rainbow. I'm peaceful and I love animals. I hate anything that causes another Human to suffer. I believe in the Laws of The Universe and Man's Laws only hurt others. I feel pain in my body just before Earthquakes happen and I have dreams about things before they happen. It's been like that since I was a small child. I'm 50 years old and I cry when trees are cut down by Humans. I understand the cycle of life and I don't cry at funerals yet I cry when animals are killed and children are hurt. So what am I because I get visits from beyond. By the way my Aura is always Blue when I go to those Metaphysical fairs.
Unknown on September 21, 2019:
Me and my two sisters have the exact personalities of these,even by generation.My older sister is just like a typical Indigo,I am just like a typical Crystal,and my little sister is just like a Rainbow
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 29, 2019:
That's really interesting, CC. Maybe you are right about the woman. I don't think I could tell just by a brief observation.
ChaosCoordinator on August 28, 2019:
I have never heard of star children before when a woman stoped me in a drug store while holdlong my 8 month old on my hip as I was leaving the pharmacy counter, she wanted to talk to me about crystal children and believed that Cole was one. I wasn’t sure what she was trying to tell me. But she said she felt she was meant to be there at that time to talk to me. So I went home and looked it up and sure enough I am 1000% in all aspects of my life a true blue indigo. I do not know how she knew that Cole was a Crystal just by looking at him, maybe it was his behavior while sitting on my hip just watching and taking everything in or his eyes, everyone always talks about his large eyes... what are your thoughts on how this perfect stranger knows this, maybe she’s an indigo too and a strong intuition or physic feeling?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 06, 2019:
That's really interesting, SunMagus. The only problem I have with it is that you are describing yourself, and you say you haven't met another 'Light child', so it's not a wave or a universal phenomenon. Not yet, anyway :)
TheSunMagus on August 06, 2019:
I think a new wave of children are being born. I call them Light children.They have they will, creativity and insecurity and need of structured childhood of an Indigo (but are very patient); have the sensitivities, enjoyment of solitude and lasting friend ships, connection to music and animals, balance comfort and fashion, may be gay of bi, have to leave crowded places of a Crystal child (but are not touchy feely often dislike close contact), and are in their own world, have the sweetness and generousness, braveness, high energy and will of a rainbow. (but care about 80% of what people think of them). They are highly intelligent, and masters at most of what they do, but don't like to talk of their smarts. As for spirituality, they master all of their magickal endeavors and have complete control over their energies and can command all other energies, except those of Crystal children. They thirst for knowledge even if they don't know it. They are very persuasive even when they don't wan't to be. The only exception is the of a Rainbow child whom they can only slightly convince into action. Thus They are nervous around Rainbow children for the fear of how little they can persuade them. They, however are not controlling or manipulative. They often fear this trait they have. Their high creativity is not seen until it is complete, but Rainbow children often understand the emotion behind it. They are also surprisingly athletic though they may not wish to be. They are normally conscious of each and every movement and speech and even places they are seen at because of what people will think. Don't ask them of their interests and hobbies because they don't like to talk about themselves, though they don't mind being the center of attention. I think they are fully mature souls who have been static, indigo, crystal, and rainbow children. Because of this they are quite rare. You may not even meet one in your lifetime. I think they came here to assist change with the Rainbow children because, Rainbow children are either too aggressive with change, or so low key about and may not even wish to talk about it. However Rainbow children are bullied a lot and a Light child might be the one person to defend them for no other reason, then because it is simply wrong. They have lots of friends, but normally don't like 5% of the people they meet. They people they dislike are truly disgusting people. Maybe they will be teachers and educators, or singers or even scientist. They are really eloquent and and descriptive, often painting images so realistic in peoples' mind that it is normally undeniable. You should really hear one talk. But they can be talked out of any of their opinions from someone they respect. Not much is know. I think that I am a Light Child because I do not fit more than 40% into each category. I am only 16 (soon to be 17) and I haven't met another Light child so, who knows? But those are just my thoughts.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 25, 2019:
Yes, it's possible, Tina. There are always outliers.
Tina Rudden on June 25, 2019:
I was born in 1970
I find that the profile of crystal children, suits me better than the indigo profile. Is this possible?
Heidi Williams on June 10, 2019:
I read Article Definitely Indigo Child born 1978 now 41 I could check every item off as Yes . I would Say my Daughter Follows Star Child and Indigo Child and my Son Truthfully at 11 born 2011 is Rainbow and Indigo he is very Strong willed and I could check both charts yes
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 20, 2019:
Adventures ahead, Jessica :) Good luck to you both.
Jessica on May 20, 2019:
Im definitely an indigo child through and through. A trail blazer loving to challenge authority and create new pathways. At 42, i gave birth to my rainbow child, whos now 18 mo. I'm loving seeing her take on the world...her quiet processing and then integration of everything around her astounds me, even at her young age
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 16, 2019:
That's the general idea behind affirmations. I've never had great success with them, but many people report that they do. I prefer the Abe-Hicks method of 'think a better thought'. Just make yourself feel better by degrees. And appreciation. However bad things are, you can always find something to appreciate... and appreciation has the same vibration as love. xx
MinkaFox on May 16, 2019:
Bev, that's a very interesting and totally plausible view. I've never thought of it that way. I'm in the US, and to be honest the protocol for everything here is therapy, which I believe can be helpful to an extent ,but I also feel as though there's not a lot of money to be made off of moving forward from our *pasts*, so I've never believed that's it's fixed anything.
Quick question. Is it possible to broadcast positivity into the universe by self affirmation? If I were to wake each day and say, " I am strong, capable, and deserving of a good life" (or something similar) would that be something that might help?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 16, 2019:
Sorry to disagree, Hamonie, but star children really aren't any more special than any other child. They are 'different', granted. But no more special. Ask any parent how special they think their child is.
I have one Crystal child and two others who don't show characteristics of being star children. None is more special than the others. They each have their gifts and unique characteristics.
My daughter is very much how you describe and had to be parented in a sensitive way also.
Hamonie floss on May 16, 2019:
I simply read the part that star kids are not in anyway special and I beg to differ. I was healthier, calmer, safer, wealthier and more confident than my peers growing up. I operated by different rules and I knew when 'punishment' was coming (karma). I got out of terrible situations fast, I escaped lots of general punishments, I got more monetary gifts from adults and more hate and criticism from my peers. I got betrayed, back stabbed, ignored and left out in the cold than the rest. I could (still can) heal myself when there was none to take care of me. My point is this, these children are very special and have even very different rules of survival. Thinking they are not different makes us feel very incapacitated because everyone expects the same of us as other kids who we have a hard time understanding by the way. The most painful part of my childhood was the general belief that kids are all the same. I was forced to sleep when I needed to be out in nature. I was made to share things with others when I'd rather eat, sleep or study alone. Star kids are extremely special and need extra care so they don't turn out to be addicts, psychos or just commit suicide out of the sheer 'madness' of it all. Not to say they are better or worse but they are very special and different than other kids and will never appreciate regular treatment.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 12, 2019:
Fascinating story. However, I couldn't comment, or put forward an explanation for the girl's appearance and disappearance.
One thing I will say, you need to broadcast a different account of your life. If you keep telling the universe you are cursed, then you will keep experiencing bad stuff. Look for the good and tell that to people instead.
I highly recommend that you listen to some Abraham-Hicks material on YouTube. It doesn't matter if you don't believe in channelling; it's the content that is important :)
MinkaFox on May 12, 2019:
Bev, I'm wondering if you can help me discern the meaning (if any) behind something that happened around the time I was being born in 1980.
My mom was in labor, so my dad had hurried back home to finish the nursery. It was very late at night, perhaps 1-2am when there was a knock at the door. My dad answered and before him stood a girl of about 12 years old, water-soaked from head to toe. She was very insistent about coming in the house. Because of the late hour and circumstances, my dad had her wait on the porch while he phoned the police. Luckily, they were right in the area. However, when he went out to wait with her, she had seemingly disappeared and was never found by the police.
My whole life has been full of tragedy and PTSD-inducing events; I feel as though I was cursed from birth. Do you know of any superstition regarding births and these types of occurrences, or do you have any idea if this event was significant? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 06, 2019:
There are always outliers. And the planet will always need a portion of humans to represent all the varieties of star children.
Athena on May 06, 2019:
Hi! I am an Crystal child but I’m not here for me... my friend is an Indigo child to a T but he was born in 2007. How could this be?

Nkenta Hell on April 03, 2019:
Hello, thanks a lot your article is very informative, so far, from my research am more of the Crystal adult. Born on the 11 of January 1972. Thanks again.
Rogue Shadow on March 22, 2019:
My mother is definitely an indigo child, and I'm a crystal child. She gets dreams that come true, she dreamt about 9/11 and thought it was just a nightmare. Then it happened and my entire family looked at her in disbelief. Indigo child describes her perfectly. Crystal child is literally me to a T.
Taki Mokuzai from Rogersville, Missouri on February 17, 2019:
I think I am a Rainbow child, and I think that it makes sense, especially since my mom is definitely a Crystal child.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 11, 2019:
It could be.
Verity on February 10, 2019:
You have given me a lot to think about. My daughter was born in 1999 and she fits the description of an Indigo Child. But I was born in 1962 and the Crystal describes me. That can't be right, Can it?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 18, 2018:
Hi Olivia, I suspect that you could be a combination of Crystal and Rainbow, maybe not so much Indigo as they are the stubborn, rebellious type :)
Remember that there is no hard, definite line between these classifications. They are only suggestions.
Olivia on November 17, 2018:
It is strange to say, but i am an INFJ personality type. The reason why i mention that is because my personality has every characteristic of Indigo, Christal, and Rainbow star children. Im intelligent with and IQ of 148, my dad had an IQ of 152. I am 26 years old. I am an empath, intuitive, i can figure out peoples souls from looking in their eyes. I can tell people whether or not something will happen, and it happens like i say it. Nobody has ever understood me my entire life, not even family, except my dad. Everything about me is rare, there is only 1% of humanity that is like me. How can it be possible that i fall under all of them?
Melissa Meadow from United States on October 14, 2018:

And my both children rainbow
Thank you for so clear description
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 02, 2018:
He sounds very much like a rainbow, Jean. There are always outliers and those who aren't part of the 'wave'.
Thanks so much for reading.
Jean Bakula from New Jersey on September 01, 2018:
My son was born in 1987, and should be a Crystal child by the definitions. Just being born and living in this house, he had to be Star child! But he never felt like a Gen Y person, he grew up on Classic Rock, and embraced many likes that were mine and his Dad's. He believes he's a Gen Xer, even though he's younger. I read your excellent descriptions though, and feel he fits in your Rainbow category. It's so hard. He's strong willed, doesn't care what people think of him. He's patient as a Saint, has some gender fluid stuff going on. He's a karate instructor, loves kids, and all the stuff fits, except he spoke in sentences by a year and a half old.
He's also a triple Scorpio. I believe there's something to this Star Child thing. I was born in 1955. So was his Dad.
Maggie Wood on August 21, 2018:
i fit into Rainbow to a tee. But i think i may be too old as i was born in the 80s
Helena on August 19, 2018:
Yes thank you. The label wasnt really what i wanted. I just want to know how to identify myself clearly. I do have a mission on earth.you are very understanding. My parents arnt as much. My dad does tell me to stop bieng weird.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 19, 2018:
You are unique, Helena, that's what you are. Don't ever try to put yourself into a category or give yourself a label.
Helena on August 19, 2018:
Hey mam i am 12 and i feel different i dont relly know if i should be in a catagory or not but i felt things ever since i was a baby and saw things. I had visions. I paint them on canvases with god. I lovd music. The public really gets me in the gut hard to say something though. Am i something?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 20, 2018:
You are very welcome, Rachael. You are in the lucky position of being able to work with these children and witness the beauty of their growing up. My own Crystal amazes me more and more every day.
Rachael from United Kingdom on June 20, 2018:
I think you may have just given me a lightbulb moment, I have spent a few years in the belief that I was meant to help Indigo children, after reading your article I believe now that I was being told I was an Indigo child, I believe I have at least 2 crystal children and I also work as SEN support in schools. Maybe this will clear some things up for me, thank you!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 22, 2018:
Hi Crystal, I think the thing we all need to understand is that these are not classifications that are set in stone. See the idea of Indigos, Crystals and Rainbows as waves of people who have the capacity to change the world with their individual gifts.
So it's not really important to know if you are one, or, indeed, which 'category' you fall into. What's important is what you do with your life. What unique gifts can you share? What small things can you change? What will be the legacy you, and people like you, bestow on the planet?
I hope, beyond hope, that you will do better than we have done.
Crystal on April 22, 2018:
I may be Crystal or Rainbow but i am 23 years old. Well the things said here r clearly explaining about me. When i was in highschool i went to the place that takes auro picture and my aura has many color. So colorful like a rainbow. Well. My question is is there any place that identify u if u r one of them or not. Or only those behavour signs? Cuz normal people can be like those too. How can i know if i am one of them or not? :)
Sharlee on April 21, 2018:

A on April 10, 2018:
I have always been intuitive to the point of being able to sense exactly what people around me were thinking. I was always the smartest kid in my class in spite of neither of my parents expecting or making me study. I am the youngest of three and my mother had her tubes tied yet somehow I was still born 6 years later by complete surprise. I belong to Mensa my IQ is 141 I always have to figure everything out and can always find truths and people can’t watch shows with me because I always can predict endings of any show. I understand how our world works and what the truth is even in the healthcare system which I look down upon since I started as a nurse with my BSN. I’ve learned how most diseases are curable and big pharma industry is destroying our populations. The truth to almost anything is very apparent to me without I have a son who is 5 and he is so smart. He is so smart his preschool teachers who have been owners of this prestigious early childhood prep school are always raving about how emotionally intelligent my son is as well as intellectually intelligent. My family is very conservative Christian and I share the values of this faith yet my son refuses gender norms without anyone pushing him to do this he only wants to watch girl shows and play with barbies. I can understand how people say some kids were just born certain ways. I don’t think he is gay he just is so emotionally in tune with girls he is best friends with all the girls at his school because I believe he is more emotionally intelligent and boys at this age usually are not like this. My son is extraordinary as a big brother and even when I pick up my youngest from daycare they forget my older son isn’t a parent. When I went to bathroom the other day the teacher told me they accidently gave the update on how my youngest sons day was and how many wet and poopy diapers to my 5 year old without even meaning too because he acts so grown up and was asking how Connor did that day. The people who spend any time with my son talk about how he always lights up a room and even at the store he used to walk up to random strangers and ask how their day was and what their name is. At drive through he always has to roll his window down to speak to whomever is taking our order. People and other kids are drawn to him like we could be at a park or anywhere he will have made a new friend. I am the opposite and I always felt like I was much older than the people my age and connected best with people older than me. I am 29 but as a home infusion nurse people twice my age fine my free thinking and world views more on their level and I’ve been called an old soul by coworkers and patients for years so many times I’ve lost track. I am into pyramid energy and natural healing but yet have a strong relationship with God and my creator. I make sense of it all and connect all the dots with how it all makes complete sense. I do find myself constantly helping people who gain trust in me with leading them to eating naturally exercising and being more aware of pharmaceuticals that are not helping their bodies and I say these things unafraid if repercussions because I know that’s the right thing and these doctors don’t help people how they should. I only recently realIzed there were others like me and my son (ultimately my mom is an indigo child and my dad as well which is another story but my dad can do the Rubik’s cube with his eyes closed under a minute if that’s any indication). My mom knows what happens as kids she always walked in right when someone was about to do something bad like we used to joke about it like the second we watched something on tv we weren’t supposed to she like walked in from being outside and she always knows what the truth is to this day it’s creepy my husband swears she must have a camera in our home it is so creepy how intuitive she is. When my mom prays for something it always gets better whatever it is and she is loved by all people and pets. I to have a weird influence on pets as I can in a sense control and calm them without saying anything and people tell me all the time when I come in their homes that their dog hates any stranger but weirdly likes and accepts me. I also want to note I am RH negative and my son is as well while my other son and my appuse are rh positive and I don’t have same connection as I do with my first which I love him the same deep love as my other but for some reason don’t connect on level my first son do and I can’t understand why. I don’t know if this comment will make sense to anyone but it was therapeutic sharing this as I feel I can’t explain this stuff to normal people
Clanci on April 01, 2018:
Wow, one of the best I've read about star children. I've always known I was a Crystal, born in 85. Always had a feeling I was different (also a Libra) I have a 2 year old and every person (at daycare, in our family, friends etc) tells me how she is so much different from other 2 year olds & talks about her beaitiful eyes and her energy. Nixie-my daughter- wakes up in her crib at night crying when I am in the mid of a nightmare. It's so crazy I haven't even told anyone. I know she can feel my feelings. Star children are a gift to the world, this I believe.
Stephen Jr on March 30, 2018:
I’ve been doing my research lately and after reading this I’ve come to the decision that I’m a Rainbow child. At first it was weird to see how many qualities match up with my own and I am kinda excited to get to know more about this whole new open world of knowledge!
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 09, 2018:
There's definitely something going on with these children, isn't there? While I'm not overly keen on the new-age labels, they are the only ones that people recognise so I had to go along with it. I shall be taking a close look at my 4 yr old grandson when he and his parents visit from Australia this summer. Haven't seen him for a year. He had some delayed milestones too, yet is as bright as a button.
Kitty Fields from Summerland on March 09, 2018:
After reading this, WOW. I'm fairly sure I'm a crystal child and that I have at least one rainbow child. My son is almost 3 and is speech delayed. He gets into the classroom and public places and "shuts down" or goes into his own world. He's even been presumed to be autistic, though he isn't autistic. He is stubborn as hell but also very affectionate and loving. He has BIG hazel eyes and long eyelashes. I used to think my daughter wasn't from this planet, as well. She has large brown eyes, super sensitive/emotional, very caring child who will cry at movies and commercials, etc, she is also super clumsy...like she has never stood on feet before this life. And don't get me started about her telepathic abilities...she's read my mind on NUMEROUS occasions to the point where it scared me! LOL

And that's all that matters, Anita. To be comfortable with who we are :)

Love this hub Bev. So true. Children or adults so many of us are different. I always felt, especially as a child that I was different, did not fit in, especially not within my family. Like I was a visitor from some other planet. Still feel like that sometimes but now I am happy within myself.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 22, 2018:
Sorry you are disappointed, Harmony. I'm pretty sure that not all autistic/ADHD children are crystal, and not all crystals are autistic/ADHD.
You'll notice that I was cautious in my use of the terms and only included them as 'possibles'.
My daughter is neither autistic or ADHD, so I disagree that these traits are typical of those on the autistic spectrum.
You aren't disabled, by the way. You don't need to carry that label around with you.
Harmony on February 22, 2018:
I've spent the past while reading about crystal children, and based on all these lists of traits that I've seen, I'm sure anyone who believes in the concept would say I am one. I think the concept is ridiculous. It's just typical traits of autistic and/or ADHD kids wrapped in New Age language.
I'm not special. I'm disabled. I see people argue that crystal children are "misdiagnosed" with autism, but I'm involved in autistic communities and feel pretty confident in saying that there's no mistakes involved. Autism is a spectrum. Not all of us present stereotypically.
I'm almost a little disappointed. "Crystal children" are supposed to carry wisdom from past lives, but I firmly believe in past lives and have no such special wisdom; all I've gotten out of the deal were some unpleasant personality traits & a few phobias related to how I died in recent lives. Super unfair! :P

Hi Anu, why don't you wait and see if it happens again? Perhaps it's something she must discover for herself?
Anu on February 21, 2018:
I am a witch which i later realised , and i just found out that one of my friend is a crystal child like the day i saw her i felt the weird sensation about her being extraordinary then others, so i am actually a bit scared should i even tell her this or not
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 15, 2018:
Thank you, so much, Jean. x
Jean Bakula from New Jersey on February 14, 2018:
This is one of the best articles I've read on this topic. I am an Indigo. I am strong willed, fight peacefully for causes I believe in, and am psychic and creative. Some of my friends call me "one of the last hippies."
I can see from you that my son is a crystal. We live on a quiet, one lane road. When I used to take him out, the noise and over stimulation would overwhelm him so much I had to take him away from the situation. He's musical, and always has a band. Also very creative, and needs his solitude. He often has people come to him for advice, and loves the water.
As an Indigo, I was fortunate to have very liberal parents!
Stephen on February 12, 2018:
Aha thank you so much!
Sending much love!

Hi Stephen, as I said to another commenter, the actual year of birth means nothing. It's just when the numbers are enough to be noticed. I'm pretty sure that star children have been 'appearing' for centuries.
Keep on with the mission, and good luck!
Stephen on February 12, 2018:
Hey! I'm a Rainbow scout (8 years early from the main first burst). I just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful information, as it helped me come to terms with it. I triple checked that it's true, and I will continue to check any way I can, because 8 years early, really?
Someone read my aura and confirmed I'm Rainbow.
Also I used a little bit of clairvoyance and claircognizance to get an answer, and again it confirmed.
And of course, all the signs fit (apart from being slightly old for a Rainbow, and my dad might be Crystal but he's 11 years early for that, but my dad is the one who kinda understands me. I have a loving family either way.)
My mission is coming along really nicely anyways. Not even 2 years into awakening and I've got many tangible ways of ushering in love, peace and consciousness into the general population. Still building, but if I keep building, it can only work!
Kataryna on February 11, 2018:
Thank you for replying. I do feel at a turning point right now with all this trapped and stifled creativity. You are right.....I think I am too fixated on trying to make big statements that will change the world. I will just start and see where it takes me....and I think that will help my children too. Thank you x
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 11, 2018:
Your son could absolutely be an Indigo. The year of birth guidelines are fairly arbitrary. There are no 'rules' regarding these star personalities. We use the years to explain the waves of births, however there will always be those outliers who seem to be born 'out of time'. Your son may 'switch' later, or he may not.
As far as you are concerned, let go of the idea that your purpose is to affect the outer world, or to share a message. Instead, express your art and creativity for YOU. That's using it for the best good there is. It's for play, for joy, and for self-expression. It's not to please or change others. Do it because it's fun. Give yourself permission to create a great big mess. X
Kataryna on February 10, 2018:
Thank you for writing this enlightening article.....I feel quite emotional reading it. I am sure I am an Indigo adult, although after an extremely difficult life have completely lost myself and my messages and life purpose have become trapped inside. It's so frustrating. I am extremely creative but my gift is being lost and I don't know how to use it for good anymore. As Kj said which sums it up completely, I have lost touch with my spiritual destiny too.
I just wanted to ask if my son could still be an Indigo having been born in 2000,as he really fits the profile.....definately a warrior,very strong willed and stubborn,detests authority and an ambassador for justice, but very sensitive too with high anxiety in authoritarian situations.....also diagnosed with the dreaded ADHD with traits of ASD. I think my youngest son is a crystal child......the most sensitive,artistic,kind,quiet boy who didn't speak until age 3. This is all so interesting.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment, Ina. I hope your journey is sweet and fulfilling.
Ina on January 30, 2018:
Hi I Ithink I’m an indigo transitioning to an Octarine/crystal. I feel like my tasks have changed. I had a warrior spirit earlier but lost all the stubbornness. I’m a leader now where they need me. I didn’t ask for it but it just happens. I like your page. Thanks for sharing it. More people should know who they are and what they came for.

hi there on January 02, 2018:
How about the silicon child? Preoccupied with technology and who lacks terribly in social skills.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 30, 2017:
I am sure it's possible, Kari. Given that the generations are evolving so fast, it seems highly likely that, as individuals make their journey through life, they too evolve spiritually. xx
Kari Poulsen from Ohio on December 30, 2017:
Is it possible to be an indigo, but grow to be a crystal? I was an indigo as a child, and I still am at heart. Now however, I have more in common with the crystal.
Kj on December 28, 2017:
I think I am an indigo and I think my son who is 20 is also. I think my youngest is crystal or rainbow I am just not sure. I have to say as the years has gone by I have lost touch with my spiritual destiny I am hopi g to get back on track and hopefully guide my youngest. Thanks for the reminder
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 26, 2017:
Yes! Me too. Mike Dooley says we come for the adventure and the quest to remember/discover who we really are... and we are not just these bodies. I like to think we are like the nib of a pen tracing across the paper of our lives. Experiencing for the expansion of The All. HNY.
Hannah on December 26, 2017:
I also believe we are originally energy (our soul as you were), and that when this shell we’re stuck in dies, we return to our glorious energetic state. No longer static and only able to occupy one place but able to be anywhere, anytime, we want. I do not understand why we decided we needed this corporal experience, and definitely do not understand doing it more than once, but here we are. They say we use less than 20% of our brain, I think that’s because the closer we get to using more is the closer we get to being pure thought/energy.
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 19, 2017:
I think we are all part of the same, connected, energy. As individuals we are like points of light on a cobweb, but at some level are all part of the One. x
Melly on December 19, 2017:
I think I understand, it seems that regardless of our individual differences or kind of light worker you are, we all are here to change humanity for the better. And like you've mentioned, that doesn't make star children better than the norm. In fact, I believe we all need each other, what other reason why we all would all be on the same planet?
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 19, 2017:
Hi Melly, the thing to remember is these a re simply labels to help us understand the characteristics of these new generations. Sure you can be a mix of two or more. Everyone is unique. I'm pretty sure my daughter is Crystal. She was born in 2001 and was also a law unto herself and very 'spirited'. Like you, she calmed down as she grew older and found her musicality.
Melly on December 18, 2017:
I'm not sure what would I fall under; I have some characteristic as a Crystal child; being born in the 2000's, not talking until I was 3, being through many telepathic and psychic experiences and allergies but I'm also a lot like an Indigo because every since I was a small child I was rebellious and hard to discipline (I've calmed down of course, but I'm still pretty stubborn) and very creative with enrich imagination. And I've always been an odd ball among my peers and family members. Is there a possibility to be both?
Oogbar on November 13, 2017:
Ehh, experience with people who have ASD can be confusing. I for one have known I've had it since I was 4, my mother knew since I was 1, some don't know untill they are 14-18-22. Many can be extreamly rude, but for rare few who have known, they do tend to be kind, and watch what they say, like a hawk.
To get a true feel for the whole ASD field would take a life time, due to all the interesting little quirks, and such, and the stark contrast in personalities can be very confusing.
Thinking on it now... you'd need a whole page for ASD, itself, sooo... nevermind. Lol
Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 13, 2017:
I didn't forget, Oogbar, I just thought it would be inappropriate, especially as I have no expertise in that field.
