Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow Children

Updated on September 25, 2017

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.

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, 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.

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.

Share Your Opinion

Are you an adult Indigo? Do you have an opinion on these Star children. Is it a ‘thing’ at all? I’d love to hear what you think.

Questions & Answers

  • 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?

    It sounds like you are a perfect example of a crystal child.

  • 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?

    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:

    https://exemplore.com/misc/How-To-Use-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.

  • I think I'm an indigo child. I was born in 1968, and I feel I fit the description. My son was born in 1992. Can he be an indigo child too?

    Yes, although these star children come in waves, there will always be those born outside of those times. I think it's a kind of balancing thing. If the world were full of Rainbows and no other types, we'd be in trouble. So we have a bunch of those who aren't star children, who are firmly rooted in the here and now. We also have star children who aren't in the current wave--they also have influence over the planet. Checks and balances.

  • I have some characteristics of each one of these. What does that make me?

    It makes you, YOU; your own unique identity for which you don't need a label.

      He sounds very much like a rainbow, Jean. There are always outliers and those who aren't part of the 'wave'.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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? :)

      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

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      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

      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!

      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.

      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!

      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

      Hi Kataryna,

      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

      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.

      How about the silicon child? Preoccupied with technology and who lacks terribly in social skills.

      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

      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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      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

      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?

      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.

      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?

      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

      I didn't forget, Oogbar, I just thought it would be inappropriate, especially as I have no expertise in that field.

      I've actually read something pretty close to this, and I've always felt trapped between "first generation Indigo" and "second generation Indigo/Crystal child". My father, unfortunately is an indigo, and I've shed some painful light for him, on his own father... they have not talked to each other in 4 years now.

      You also forgot to add in the Asperger's spectrum disorder (Asperger's syndrome for those who heard of it in the 80's-90's) as a potential trait... but aside from that, things seem spot on.

      I agree, Madgrench. Humans have been renaming and reassessing all kinds of different things throughout time. Classifying ourselves is more of the same.

      Wu Tang? Hip hop?

      I think we are just adding new names to an old process of inevitable evolution of thought and humanity. This is an ancient trope. Each new generation has a different way of dealing with it's present circumstances. Usually we see the way our predoceseors dealt with the world flawed in one way or another, so we vow to approach things differently. We hope for a change and a new outlook for our children to take hold of. Yet they will inevitably see our perspective flawed. This cyclistic process has occurred countless times and will continue to do so. We can decide to name each generation whatever rock or spectrum of light we wish but the process will continue. The only constant is change and being prepared for that inevitability is all we have attempted or can be expected to do. Wu Tang is for the children...

      I would think so, Thalia. Especially as I believe we are not individuals, but energy 'poured into' a physical body. Energy is infinite so the possibility of new incarnations is likely. As new ones come in, old souls take a loooong rest. Well, that's my theory :)

      This is the first time I read about this topic. I'm open minded, so I don't say they don't exist, but I think I've never met one of them. But, it seems logic to me. They are born in times of change, and they bring change to the world. I like that. It's fascinating the part about the part that says that rainbow children are new souls who never reincarneted. Is that a thing? I've always thought that souls are the same since the beginning of time. Is it possible to new souls to be born?
