Indigo and crystal children is a term for people born in recent years on our planet. These children have specific abilities and they play a significant role in the effort of the planet Earth to prosper and become purer and better place for us to exist in. According to some opinions, these children even dispose of various paranormal abilities, such as mind-reading of others.
The term indigo children was coined by Nancy Ann Tappe who created this concept during the 1970s. Tappe, acting as a parapsychologist and a medium, started to notice that many children were born with indigo aura colour. Thus the term "indigo children". The blue colour is predominant in their aura; these children know what is their purpose here on Earth. Parents of these children should accept their extraordinary and specific qualities and guide them through life with love and care.
The Indigo Child Movement supports these children and their parents to help them develop qualities in these children that contemporary common authorities perceive as negative. Indigo children are considered to be perfect beings, on a higher level of development than their parents.
Followers of this movement believe that this type of children occurred in order to alert us to the current state of the world and to the necessity of its improvement. Their main efforts focus on restoring peace and order, removing corrupt institutions and transition to alternative types of medicine and healing.
At present, indigo children are from ca 13 to 31 years old. They are predecessors of the crystal children. Both generations occurred in abundance at the end of the 20th century - Indigos after 1978 and Crystals after 1995. Crystal children are 0-30 years old. Naturally, there were heralds of both generations quite earlier than that. That is why it is no surprise that some indigo children are over 50 years old today and some crystal children have become adults as well.
History of Indigo Children
Theories on people with special abilities started to occur in America at the end of the 1970s. The idea of indigo individuals was first published in 1999 in the book The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived by L. Carroll and J. Tober. They stated that they acquired this concept through their communication with a spiritual entity called Kryon.
In 2006, the Russian daily newspaper Pravda published an article stating the following: "Experts say that almost 94% of babies born after 1994 are indigo children. Internal organs of these children have different functions from ours. Their immune system is several times stronger than in an average human. These children also have different DNA - mutated. In other words, as far as DNA of millions of inhabitants of this planet is concerned, the indigo children aren't human at all. A race of new creatures is entering the stage slowly but surely."

- Do not try to manipulate them, "indigos" won't budge.
- They are smaller but wiser, so act with appropriate respect to them. Do not assert your authority excessively; they do not respond to that well. Respect them for they deserve it.
- Do not be afraid to speak to them as to your equals. Give them enough space for them to develop their autonomy. For example, let them pick out their own clothes. Respect their mental abilities and help them develop them.
- It is also necessary to handle their emotional perception sensitively; they tend to be very sensitive, so learn to protect them and ground them properly. Their frequent mood swings are caused by the fact that they constantly take on emotions and energy of others. Do not be angry with them for this.
- If you can, help them learn information on their indigo nature and their life mission. These children have unique abilities and qualities to help this world; until they realise this, they can have great mental strain; therefore, become their guides. When they know about their mission, they handle everything better and they can work on it peacefully.
Skeptical and Critical Opinions
Critics claim that their abilities are not special at all and that such qualities are observable in most children. Skeptics also call attention to the fact that the Indigo Movement lacks any sort of verifiable evidence which could support existence of such children and they consider the entire theory pseudo-scientific. They even support the opinion that troublesome children are designated as indigo which may delay their timely diagnosis and initiation of help and improvement.
