This is a telephone interview which took place just prior to Drunvalo’s travels to Europe in March 1999. Because Drunvalo was excited about so many things we chose to focus on one of Drunvalo’s favorite subjects… children.

Diane: So Drunvalo…who are these “Children of the New Dream” that you are so excited about?

Drunvalo: Well there are 3 different kinds of children emerging in the world today that I have been able to identify.

  • The first are called the “Super Psychic Children of China”

  • The second are called the “Indigo Children

  • The third are called the “Children of AIDS”

The first one, the “Super Psychics of China”, we talked about in the Flower of Life seminars. If you remember, the first one was discovered in 1984 when a child was found who was psychic beyond belief. Researchers conducted every psychic test you could imagine and he was 100% correct every time. You could turn cards over in another room and that didn’t matter. He could perfectly know what was on the card.

So Omni magazine went to China and wrote an article on this discovery. They found one child and then another. When they went in 1984 they assumed it was a hoax so they did experiments like putting 100 kids in a room and taking a book and randomly pulling out a page. They would crumple it up and stick it under their arm. These kids could read every word on the page.

They did test after test, and the response was flawless. The phenomena didn’t stop there. These kids are not just in China. They have spread all over the world. I personally have been talking to parents who ask me, “…what do we do.. I have a kid who knows everything?” I believe Lee Carroll is calling the children being born here in the U.S. “the Indigo Children“. I personally think the two groups are coming from the same source, however, I don’t know that for sure. There appears to be two separate groups, incredibly psychic and amazing.

It is the third group that I am most interested in – the Children of AIDS. About 10 or 11 years ago in the US, there was a baby born with AIDS. They tested him at birth and at 6 months and he tested positive for AIDS. They tested him a year later and he still tested positive. Then they didn’t test him again until he was 6, and what was amazing is that this test showed that he was completely AIDS free! In fact, there was no trace that he ever had AIDS or HIV whatsoever!

He was taken to UCLA to see what was going on and those tests showed that he didn’t have normal human DNA. In the human DNA we have 4 nucleic acids that combine in sets of 3 producing 64 different patterns that are called codons. Human DNA all over the world always has 20 of these codons turned on and the rest of them are turned off, except for 3 which are the stop and start codes, much like a computer. Science always assumed that the ones that were turned off were old programs from our past. I’ve always seen them like application programs in a computer. Anyway… this boy had 24 codons turned on4 more than any other human being. Then they tested this kid to see how strong his immune system was.

They took a very lethal dose of AIDS in a petri dish and mixed it with some of his cells and his cells remained completely unaffected. They kept raising the lethalness of the composition and finally went up to 3,000 times more than what was necessary to infect a human being and his cells stayed completely disease free. Then they started testing his blood with other things like cancer and discovered that this kid was immune to everything! Then they found another kid with these codons turned on – then another one – then another one – then 10,000, then 100,000, then a million of them – and at this point, UCLA, by watching world-wide DNA testing, estimates that 1% of the world has this new DNA. That breaks down to approximately 60 million people who are not human by the old criteria.

Diane: Is this new codon activation found only in newborn children?

Drunvalo: Well, it’s mostly children, but now they are finding adults with it too – just like the hundredth monkey theory. Now all kinds of people are being affected by it and it’s spreading fast. Remember, it started just 5 years ago with almost no one and now it’s spreading – just like a disease. It’s like an outbreak and this is only the beginning.

The other part of this concerns the new book entitled “Cracking the Bible Code” – which has to do with running the Hebrew Books of the Bible through a specialized computer program. If you go to page 164 of this book, it shows where these researchers put the word ’AIDS’ into the program to see what would happen. When they did, the program translation provided words like “HIV“, “in the blood“, “the immune system“, “death” – all the things you would think you’d see around the word AIDS, but down in the corner was this sentence that they didn’t understand and it said – “the end of disease“, and that is what I believe is happening here.

Science has stated that there are so many people showing up with this new alien DNA that they now believe that a new human race is being born on the earth today and apparently they can’t get sick. Now what is really incredible – they believe that it is a very specific emotional, mental body response – a waveform coming off the body that is causing the DNA to mutate in a certain way.

I’ve sat with Gregg Braden who was one of the first persons to write about this and what we believe is that there are 3 parts to this phenomenon.

  • The first part is the mind that sees unity. It sees the Flower of Life. It sees everything interconnected in all ways. It doesn’t see anything as separate.

  • And the second part is being centered in the heart – to be loving.

  • And the third thing is to step out of polarity – to no longer judge the world. As long as we are judging the world as good or bad, then we are inside polarity and remain the fallen state. I believe these people (with the new DNA) have somehow stepped out of judging and are in a state where they see everything as one and feeling Love.

Whatever they are doing within themselves is producing a waveform that when seen on computer screens looks almost identical to the DNA molecule. So the researchers think that by the very expression of their life that these people are mapping with the DNA – resonating it – and are changing these 4 codons and in so doing become immune to the disease.

What they don’t know and this is where a lot of research gets to happen is so maybe they are immune, but is there anything else? They might be immortal, who knows. Maybe there are other characteristics that we haven’t even dreamed of. I often wonder if they are all linked together? Is there some form of telepathic connection that goes on?

Diane: Have you met any of these people? Are they accessible?

Drunvalo: Well, I’ve known about this for over two years and I have personally followed this path and I think I’ve moved into what they are doing. I have gone into the merkabah and asked my subconscious mind to change my codons in the same way and ever since I began to do this over two years ago, I haven’t been able to get sick. I don’t know if I’ve been able to change them or not. I guess the only way I’d know is with a DNA test.

However, I’ve been exposed to all kinds of things and when someone gets sick I purposely get close to them and try to get it. I’ve been trying to get sick – and I can’t. I feel something come on – it will last maybe an hour and then it’s gone.

What is interesting is that hardly any of this new DNA is found in the Super Psychic Children of China – almost zero. It is, however, being found in Russia and the U.S. There seems to be pockets of it and if what we are thinking is right – it has to do with a very specific response which is where most people in the New Age are headed for.

Diane: Do you think these people are creating the DNA changes unconsciously?

Drunvalo: I think someone has made the path – one child did it somewhere. Then he put it into the grids and it is now in the subconscious of the earth and is accessible to anyone. Once that happened I think somehow or another other people have connected to this on a subconscious level in deep meditation and prayer and made the change. A new race is being born and it is one of the most remarkable phenomenon that has happened on the planet! It’s incredible that no one seems to know about this until now!

Diane: Well, you are the only one I’ve ever heard speak about this.

Drunvalo: Well, I’ve been tracking this for about 2 years and I’ve waited to say anything because I wanted to make sure it was real. In the book called “The Indigo Children” there has been extensive research on these children. There are websites you can go to if you’re a parent where they begin to interview you about exactly what’s going on with your child. Like I said earlier, these kids know exactly what you’re feeling and what you’re thinking. You can’t hide anything from them. It’s really amazing! I see it as a phenomenon like the ET’s except they aren’t coming here in spaceship form – they are coming here in spirit form making it personal by coming into the earth’s evolutionary cycle and joining with us. I’ve often thought that when spirits come in on the right side of the planet – Japan, China, and Tibet for instance, the incarnating being takes on the psychic characteristics (of those people), and if they come in on the western side – the logical side (i.e., physical characteristics) – then the DNA comes in changed. But that’s just speculation on my part. I’m just looking at this and trying to understand what is occurring.

At the workshops I’m going to do in Seattle and Denver in June, I’m going to bring everything I’ve learned together and teach people to actually access this and make the change. I think I know – or I’m very close.

Diane: And that has to do with putting yourself in a certain state of consciousness?

Drunvalo: Yes, a very specific state of consciousness produces a change in your DNA – and I think it’s just the beginning of much more than that. The fact that it could be the end of disease is just a tiny bit of the total picture.

Diane: How would this particular kind of work and discovery affect the DNA activation work that seems to be popping up all over?

Drunvalo: Well, if you know your light body and you know how psychic energy works and if you understand the connection of the subconscious to all life on this planet, then you can go in and ask your subconscious. Your subconscious knows exactly which codons those kids have changed and if you ask for those things to happen through your light body and in the presence of God, it should occur. It also requires dropping polarity – no longer thinking in terms of good or bad, but seeing the wholeness and completion and perfection of life. It is a very definite mind, emotional and body response. The body response is the one where your body simply does not acknowledge good or bad, but sees that there is a higher purpose behind it all. We all know this stuff – everyone from Jesus to Krishna to Sai Baba has been talking about this for a long time, but this is the first I’m aware of where something actually is changing in the outer environment.

People’s DNA is really changing. Barbara Marciniak talked about going to the 12-strand DNA, and I’ve talked about chromosome changes. There have been many of us who have talked about this – but none of this had been seen by science. Now it has been seen and it has been documented.

Diane: So, if that’s the case, then what significance does that have on our lives today?

Drunvalo: I believe that all of us have the choice to follow this particular pattern that the children have set up or not. It is said that the children will lead the way. If we wish to and we trust these children, as I do – one of the side effects is the immunity to disease.

Diane: There are a lot of us who are choosing immortality. However, some people would say that to be immune to disease is also to upset the life/death cycle which has supposedly helped to keep the planet in balance. How would you answer that?

Drunvalo: Well, I just don’t judge it. This is happening and if it is going to upset the cycle and it probably will in some way – everything that is occurring in life has a reason and purpose for it. Perhaps these people who don’t get sick anymore – perhaps they won’t even die anymore and maybe their consciousness is so aligned with the original purpose of earth that ultimately it would mean an earth that is whole and complete and not one that is polluted and deadly and over taxed. We could easily live with 6 billion people or 20 billion… if… we live differently. There is plenty of space and it’s just that we are using our resources in ways that are killing the planet. If we were to choose to live in different ways, that might change. Maybe through these people the answers might become apparent.

For someone to move into a state where they are immune to disease is a very powerful indication that they are definitely in harmony with life somehow. We can equate this process with the mutation of bacteria and viruses. We attack their systems with pollutants such as penicillin for instance, and it kills them all except for a few. Those few get stronger. Now what’s happening is that these bacteria are getting to the place where they are immune to the poisons we are giving them. And have we not done the same thing? We are mutating to a point where we are not affected by pollution or viruses or by disease. And you know, there is another thing that happened last year – AIDS dropped something like 47% – the largest drop of a single disease in the history of the world. I believe that it had a lot to do with this very thing we are talking about.

Diane: That’s exciting!

Drunvalo: Yes, it is. I just let the earth prompt me where to go. Of course, it is important to know our light bodies and how to use them, but the children are very carefully saying – come this way – and see where this leads.

Diane: So is this what your future workshops will be focused on?

Drunvalo: Yes. I will be putting everything I’ve learned in the last two years from my research and the Earth/Sky work, into a simple response where anyone can move into the place that the children accessed. I’ll do my best!

In his epic poem, Savitri, Sri Aurobindo vividly describes a new race of humanity emerging on Earth, as different from humans today as we have ever been to the evolutions that have preceded us:

“…I saw them cross the twilight of an age,
The sun-eyed children of a marvelous dawn,
Great creators with wide brows of calm,
The massive barrier-breakers of the world,
Laborers in the quarries of the gods…
The architects of immortality.
Into the fallen human sphere they came
Faces that wore the Immortal’s glory still…
Bodies made beautiful by the spirit’s light…
Carrying the Dionysian cup of joy,
Lips chanting an unknown anthem of the soul,
Feet echoing in the corridors of Time.
High priests of wisdom, sweetness, might, and bliss;
Discoverers of beauty’s sunlit ways…
Their tread one day shall change the suffering earth
And justify the light on Nature’s face.”

(Savitri pp. 343-4)

Children have always been our hope for the future. Indeed, they are the future of hope if we are to survive at all. Certainly, our current species seems genetically intent on following the dinosaurs and millions of other species that once lived upon the earth and are now extinct. Will we die as we have lived, pathetically and violently, or will there be a legacy left behind that will sing the Earth back to life?

Sri Aurobindo seemed to indicate that a new species is emerging among us. We have a ways to go before this will happen, however. He saw that there would have to be a transitional species before the new “supramental” species was able to enter the rarefied realms of a purified Earth. He saw that each successive generation would carry this evolutionary potential further, and that we would develop through an “overhuman” stage before the “supramental being” could be anchored into the “true physical” realm of fourth dimensional matter.

The Mother and Sri Aurobindo felt that it could take another 300 years for conditions on Earth to be ready for supramental beings to incarnate. However, it seems to be clear to many observers that a transitional species is already here. Are these the ones that are being variously called the Indigo children, the Crystal Children, or the Children of Oz? Are these the ones who will launch humanity into a new era of consciousness, laying the groundwork for the emergence of the new species? Are these the ones that Sri Aurobindo so beautifully writes about?

I know many, like myself, who have been on the path what has been termed “ascension”. We have done our inner work, we have cleansed our bodies, we have meditated, talked with angels and ascended masters, tried to build our “lightbodies”, expand our “merkabahs”, re-strand our DNA, and otherwise court physical immortality in every way imaginable . Still, we are susceptible to disease, and our bodies continue to age. There is much in our subconscious that is still unresolved, and we are still karmically tied into the planetary unconscious realms where reside the mighty illusions of darkness, falsehood, suffering and death.

Perhaps we are taking on a role that isn’t ours to take… yet. Perhaps we are to dream these possibilities and plant the seeds of hope, and others will come afterwards who will achieve these dreams and manifest these realities. The Mother claims that the supramental realms were first unified into her cellular body, and therefore the “mindfields” of the Earth on February 29, 1956.


The Dream that is already present in the Supramental worlds was seeded into mass consciousness at that time, and each generation succeeds in taking it further. As our children and our children’s children complete their roles in healing the Earth, healing the splits between spirit and matter, and the ancient suffering we have borne as a result of this split, perhaps we will return as their children in the not so distant future in newly supramentalized bodies of light!

On a more immediate level, who are these new kids? What is their promise? Their minds think differently, their emotional bodies process feelings differently, their energy bodies are capable of holding stronger soul vibrations, and they have a new vision to share. They do not fit into mainstream society. Many of them appear to have special psychic and healing abilities, and need special support to control and develop these gifts.


Drunvalo Melchizedek distinguishes between the Indigo children and the Super-Psychic children, whom I prefer to call the Violet children. Jimmy Twyman, in Emissary of Love, calls them Children of Oz, and speaks eloquently of his own experiences with this latter group, and the message they wish to share with the world.

As I see it, the Indigo children generally seem to range in age from the twenties into the forties, or even older, and includes the current generation of “lightworkers”, while the Violet children are younger, and carry a different mandate. The Violet kids do not need to read any of this to know what’s real. They are linked mind to mind in a global psychic link-up that reflects a new fifth-dimensional morphogenetic grid on Earth. In future generations, they may be the first to step into what Sri Aurobindo envisioned as “supramental consciousness”.


They are also becoming known as the Crystal Children.

Steve Rother ( has been communicating for many years with a group of light beings who very fittingly call themselves The Group. They speak of the New Planet Earth that is coming, and also have a lot to say about these Crystal children. According to them, the Indigos came to shake up our old paradigms and to make room for the next wave in evolution, the ’Children of Crystal Vibration’.


At the beginning of their messages in 1996, the Group said that if we could make the planet safe for their return they would come. Apparently, despite outward experiences, the planet must be getting safer, for recently they have said that the Crystal kids are starting to enter.

The following selections are drawn from Steve Rother’s internet site, where the unabridged version is available at This information resonates with me deeply, and also seems to harmonize with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s understandings of our future evolution.

“Those that you call the Indigo children have already shifted the focus of humanity. Because of their work and sacrifice you are learning to make space in your reality for empowered humans. They have done well and will now begin to move into adulthood. As they do, they will shift the paradigms of all that is to follow. The Indigo children have begun the change of your systems that relate to children. Now watch the miracles that take place as they move into adulthood and change those systems as well. Imagine what the world will be like as the first Indigo world leaders take their place.

As this unfolds, the New Earth will become firmly rooted in the balanced Crystal energy. You will see space created for empowered humans on Earth no matter their beliefs, sex, or origins. The work of those you call Indigo will be known forever as the great shift. They have come into a harsh world, shaken it up, and are making you re-think everything. These beautiful beings are direct and therefore may have appeared to you as abrasive. Enduring boredom is their greatest challenge. Blessed be the Indigo children for they are opening the door. Now let us tell you more of what is behind the door.

The Children of Crystal vibration are what you would consider to be the magical children with abilities that you have yet to understand. The attributes of Crystal Children are simply two-fold, they are extremely powerful and yet extremely vulnerable. They are highly evolved beings and have an understanding of what simple energy really is. Feats that you would think impossible may seem like child’s play to humans carrying the Crystal Vibration. You will begin to see magical abilities in human children that you have never seen before. Their basic understanding of energy will make it possible to manipulate energy in new ways.

Certain energy forms that you have adapted for your own use may be a bit difficult for the first Crystals to cope with. Electricity in particular may be awkward for some of the early Crystals as they acclimate. The energetic makeup of these children may cause unusual reactions to electrical devices. They have challenges defining their energetic boundaries and therefore, are empathic to electro magnetic fields.

They may have a tendency to reflect back the energy they can not assimilate. It may be quite common for Crystal children to blow out electrical devices until they become accustomed to the energy. You will see children with abilities to physically move objects in ways you do not understand. You may see physical senses develop in some children that have never been part of the human experience prior. Even your sciences will have difficulty explaining what these children will see as simple energy.

At first, Crystal Children will tend to gather in groups where they can hold space for each other. They will form groups and grow together supporting each other energetically. They will do it all by themselves so parents of Crystal children will not need to worry about finding the best environment for their children. Expect to see groups of ’magical children’ with abilities that exceed far beyond the norm you have known. As time goes on you will see an acclimation of this energy and you will become more accustomed to the odd stories that will circulate about strange new abilities of some children. Watch for these and prepare yourself, for these are the physical signs that the human race is evolving.

This is the return of the Children of Crystal vibration.”

The Group goes on to say that what we are beginning to see so far are only the scouts who have been sent ahead to test the waters, and that powerful as they are, they are carrying only the first hints of the energy that is to come. They will be able to read not only our minds, but also our hearts. There will be no more secrets. They will have a sensitivity beyond our comprehension, but this sensitivity will be a gift as well as a challenge.


The Group continues, saying:

“Unlike the children of Indigo vibration, the Crystal children are so sensitive that they may feel threatened by the harshness of what people are holding in their hearts. Some will find safety in retreating and going within. There are some people who will think this a sign of weakness and may even attempt to exploit these gentle beings.

Let us set your mind at ease when we tell you that exploitation will not be possible. The Children of Crystal vibration are powerful beyond your understanding. Even though they may have great difficulty understanding and interacting, they will always know their true power and who they are.”

According to the Group their biggest challenge will their inability to deal with other people’s fear. Fear is based on a belief in lack, and these children will enter with a belief system that knows nothing of lack, and therefore nothing of fear. They will need help in dealing with the general fear around them, which means that we will need to start dealing with our own deeply ingrained habits of fear, separation, limitation, and lack!

Over the past several months I have been in communication with three teenagers from different parts of the world who might perhaps be called Crystal Scouts. They are remarkably similar to each other. Their powers are indeed very vast and real, as is their extreme sensitivity. They can move things by just thinking so, they can create lightning or change weather, and they can consciously create positive mutations within their cellular DNA structures. They know how to heal. They feel they can also do this for other people, if they were invited to. They know of others like them, because they can sense them within their own minds, but sometimes feel isolated physically.


They are in touch with fairies, angels and multidimensional cosmic beings. They have a hard time finding people they can trust, and have learned that it is not always safe to share too much of their world with adults around them.


Like strangers in a strange land, they have great difficulty relating to the self-centered and limited perspectives that human society operates within, and most people find them very threatening in their vulnerability and directness.


They feel frustrated because they know they are here to help, but feel that if they unleash their powers to assist the world, that it could leave much chaos in its wake. They feel there will be a big fight with evil, but that everything will work out for good in the end.

I have also been in email communication with many who are working with or wish to work with Indigo and Crystal Children. There are many who are parents or teachers of such children and wish to know how they can help raise them. Many have asked if special schools exist for them. Many ask about creating networks through which they might find each other. Many have beautiful and inspiring stories to share of their encounters with such children. Some have shared heartbreaking stories of how these kids could not find their way in the world and had become lost.

Sri Aurobindo and the Mother felt from their own experiences that the Supramental Earth now already exists in a different dimension than our own. Perhaps we might call this the Fifth Dimension. They felt that all that was needed to bring this dimension into planetary experience was to build the bridges. Perhaps the Crystal Children are the bridges.


In time, as this consciousness deepens upon Earth, as they find each other and learn to work within the old structures of Earth, as the old structures give way to new structures that will sustain them and sustain supramental life upon the Earth, we might find ourselves at the threshold of a Collective Planetary Shift.


The Sun-Eyed Children are the inheritors of this New Dawn!


There is a story that will be told in years to come, the story of the “hundredth human.”

A long time ago, it will be said, in a group of island-continents on a planet called Earth, there was a very primitive species. They worked very hard to pretend they each lived in a separate world, and they pretended very hard so they could hide their misery with this state of affairs. They lived on the most beautiful of planets but they only believed in ugliness and death, so this is what they created. And they each created a thick wall around themselves, so they wouldn’t have to see the consequences of their actions, and therefore of their creations.

A group of anthropologists from a nearby star system came to study this strange breed. One day, after many centuries had gone by, they noticed that a human child had learned to tear down the walls of her self-imposed exile. This was strange behavior indeed, but the next day it was noticed that she went over to her younger brother and taught him to do the same. Over the next weeks and months, this strange practice began to spread widely. Even the adults were affected. Trees were planted, rock gardens were created, and there were unprecedented outbursts of senseless beauty and random acts of kindness.

And then something very wonderful happened. One day, there were 99 such humans who had learned to tear down their walls. The day after that, the way things were unfolding, there should have been 100. But something had happened. The children had learned to link in with each other through what they called a consciousness field, and this field suddenly sprang out and surrounded the entire planet. Not only every human on that particular island-continent, but every human on every other island-continent on the planet, suddenly began to awaken to their unity. They opened their eyes to beauty’s sunlit paths, and learned to play and dance together.

A new world had been born!

This article is excerpted from Kiara Windriders book:

Doorway to Eternity: A Guide to Planetary Ascension




How do you know if you, or someone you know,

is an Indigo or Crystal Child or Adult?

We will describe the main features and characteristics of these people. But we want to stress that the Indigo/Crystal phenomenon is the next step in our evolution as a human species. We are all, in some way, becoming more like the Indigo and Crystal people. They are here to show us the way, and so the information can be applied more generally to all of us as we make the transition to the next stage of our growth and evolution.

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and way-showers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing abilities and degrees of technological and creative sophistication.

The Crystal Children began to appear on the planet from about 2000, although some date them slightly earlier. These are extremely powerful children, whose main purpose is to take us to the next level in our evolution, and reveal to us our inner power and divinity. They function as a group consciousness rather than as individuals, and they live by the” Law of One” or Unity Consciousness. They are a powerful force for love and peace on the planet.

The Indigo and Crystal Adults are composed of two groups.

  1. Firstly, there are those who were born as Indigos and are now making the transition to Crystal. This means they undergo a spiritual and physical transformation that awakens their “Christ” or “Crystal” consciousness and links them with the Crystal children as part of the evolutionary wave of change.


  2. The second group is those who were born without these qualities, but have acquired or are in the process of acquiring them through their own hard work and the diligent following of a spiritual path. Yes, this means that all of us have the potential to be part of the emerging group of “human angels“.

The following extract describes the difference between Indigo and Crystal Children. It is from Doreen Virtue‘s article Indigo and Crystal Children:

The first thing most people notice about Crystal Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years. Their eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for the child to see. Perhaps you’ve noticed this special new “breed” of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful and forgiving. This generation of new light-workers, roughly ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed … and its a good direction!

The older children (approximately age 7 through 25), called “indigo Children”, share some characteristics with the Crystal Children. Both generations are highly sensitive and psychic, and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament. Indigos have a warrior spirit, because their collective purpose is to mash down old systems that no longer serve us. They are here to quash government, educational, and legal systems that lack integrity. To accomplish this end, they need tempers and fiery determination.

Those adults who resist change and who value conformity may misunderstand the Indigos. They are often mislabeled with psychiatric diagnoses of Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Sadly, when they are medicated, the Indigos often lose their beautiful sensitivity, spiritual gifts and warrior energy…… In contrast, the Crystal Children are blissful and even-tempered.


Sure, they may have tantrums occasionally, but these children are largely forgiving and easy-going. The Crystals are the generation who benefit from the Indigos trailblazing. First, the Indigo Children lead with a machete, cutting down anything that lacks integrity. Then the Crystal Children follow the cleared path, into a safer and more secure world.

The terms “Indigo” and “Crystal” were given to these two generations because they most accurately describe their aura colors and energy patterns. Indigo children have a lot of indigo blue in their auras. This is the color of the “third eye chakra”, which is the energy center inside the head located between the two eyebrows. This chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions, and spirits. Many of the Indigo children are clairvoyant.

The Crystal Children have opalescent auras, with beautiful multi-colors in pastel hues. This generation also shows a fascination for crystals and rocks……

Indigo Children can sense dishonesty, like a dog can sense fear. Indigos know when they’re being lied to, patronized, or manipulated. And since their collective purpose is to usher us into a new world of integrity, the Indigos inner lie-detectors are integral. As mentioned before, this warrior spirit is threatening to some adults. And the Indigos are unable to conform to dysfunctional situations at home, work, or school. They don’t have the ability to dissociate from their feelings and pretend like everything’s okay …unless they are medicated or sedated.

Crystal Children’s innate spiritual gifts are also misunderstood. Specifically, their telepathic abilities which lead them to talk later in life.

In the new world which the Indigos are ushering in, we will all be much more aware of our intuitive thoughts and feelings. We won’t rely so much upon the spoken or written word. Communication will be faster, more direct, and more honest, because it will be mind to mind. Already, increasing numbers of us are getting in touch with our psychic abilities. Our interest in the paranormal is at an all-time high, accompanied by books, television shows, and movies on the topic.

So, it’s not surprising that the generation following the Indigos are incredibly telepathic. Many of the Crystal Children have delayed speech patterns, and its not uncommon for them to wait until they’re 3 or 4 years old to begin speaking. But parents tell me they have no trouble communicating with their silent children. Far from it! The parents engage in mind-to-mind communication with their Crystal Children. And the Crystals use a combination of telepathy, self-fashioned sign language, and sounds (including song) to get their point across.

The trouble comes about when the Crystals are judged by medical and educational personnel as having “abnormal” speaking patterns. It’s no coincidence that as the number of Crystals are born, that the number of diagnoses for autism is at a record high.

It’s true that the Crystal Children are different from other generations. But why do we need to pathologize these differences? If the children are successfully communicating at home, and the parents aren’t reporting any problems… then why try to make a problem? The diagnostic criteria for autism is quite clear. It states that the autistic person lives in his or her own world, and is disconnected from other people. The autistic person doesn’t talk because of an indifference to communicating with others.

Crystal Children are quite the opposite. They are among the most connected, communicative, caring and cuddly of any generation. They are also quite philosophical and spiritually gifted. And they display an unprecedented level of kindness and sensitivity to this world. Crystal Children spontaneously hug and care for people in need.


An autistic person wouldn’t do that!

In my book “The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children“, I wrote that ADHD should stand for Attention Dialed into a Higher Dimension. This would more accurately describe that generation. In the same vein, Crystal Children don’t warrant a label of autiem. They aren’t autistic! They’re AWE-tistic!

These children are worthy of awe, not labels of dysfunction. If anyone is dysfunctional, it’s the systems that aren’t accommodating the continuing evolution of the human species. If we shame the children with labels, or medicate them into submission, we will have undermined a heaven-sent gift. We will crush a civilization before its had time to take roots.


Fortunately, there are many positive solutions and alternatives. And the same heaven that sent us the Crystal Children can assist those of us who are advocates for the children………

The following is an extract from Celia’s forthcoming book, “The Indigo-Crystal Adventure“, which explains more about the metaphysical aspects of the Indigo-Crystal experience.



The Indigo and Crystal children that come to the planet are known as “star-children”. Often this is because their souls are more at home in the stars, and they have not incarnated on Earth before. They come at this time as a “special assignment” team to assist Earth and her inhabitants with their transition and rebirth as a higher dimensional “New Earth”.

But while these beings appear like ordinary human beings, they do in fact have access to a greater range of human potential. They are more open to who they are, closer to a recognition of their divine origins and essence.

Indigo children are born onto the Indigo Soul Ray of Incarnation and Evolution. This means they have access to the gifts of clairvoyance and healing. They are also able to access what may be termed the Fourth and Fifth Dimensions of Consciousness, while most humans have access only to the Third and Fourth.

This Higher Dimensional access, together with the Indigo Ray soul gifts, means that Indigos are naturally more intelligent, more sensitive and more clairvoyant. They are also creative, and often able to access the left and right brains with ease, making them artistically gifted, but also technologically competent and adventurous.

The Crystal children, on the other hand, are mostly born into the Gold Ray of Incarnation and Evolution. They are born on the Sixth Dimension of Consciousness, with the potential to open up rapidly to the Ninth Dimensional level of Full Christ Consciousness, and then from there to the Thirteenth Dimension which represents Universal Consciousness.

With these gifts and abilities, Crystal beings are immensely powerful and creative. Many of them carry the Gold and Magenta Rays, which makes them masters of creation, especially with light and sound. This manifests as artistic and musical creativity on the Earth plane. Those who carry the Indigo-Silver Ray, are also gifted as the “mothers” and “goddesses” of the planet, and carry the feminine vibration of healing and nurturing. Those on the Red-Gold Ray, on the other hand, carry the masculine vibration of manifestation and are often the leaders in the more active sense.

The Future Crystal child will be known as a “Rainbow Crystal” being. This is the fully developed Thirteen Dimensional Universal Human Being, able to carry and transmit all the Rays of Incarnation and Evolution within their vibrational field. There are Rainbow Crystal beings already on planet Earth, but they are yet to open into their full potential.

The exciting thing about these evolutionary developments, for ordinary people, is that the Indigo and Crystal beings bring these vibrations to the planet in order to share them with others. By their very presence, they assist others to move into these new vibrations and open up to their full potential as well. The Indigo-crystal gift to the planet is the gift of Evolution and access to our full potential, for every human being on the planet today, if they so choose.

At this point, many people who are allowing this shift or transition within their own auric fields, have moved from their original Third Dimensional state of awareness into the Indigo and then the Crystal states, with the assistance of the children who hold the vibration. These adults are now able to hold the Gold Ray of Evolution in their Eighth chakras, and are helping to create a matrix for the creation of the New Earth. This pulsating Gold light can be clearly seen in their auras by those with clairvoyance and the ability to perceive auric colors.

The Human Angel

One of the gifts of this transitional process, is that Humans are becoming aware of who they truly are: that they are Spirits in Human bodies, and that they are, in other words, Angels in human form.

We have been aware of our connections to the higher realms for many thousands of years, but have always felt that out “human” and material state somehow “shut” us off from our angelic inheritance. We would speak about our “Higher Self”, knowing that we had access to this aspect of ourselves, but somehow it was not quite a part of who we were, and could only be accessed in meditation.

Part of the reason for this was that our physical forms were locked into the Third Dimension, but our Higher or Angelic self was of a much finer and higher vibration and was more at home in the Higher Dimensions. So there was always a “gap” between the material manifestation of the human body and consciousness and the spiritual reality.

Now, however, with the vibrational shift that the planet is experiencing, which is aptly called “Ascension”, the Earth and her inhabitants have the opportunity to “ascend” from the Third Dimension of consciousness upwards into the Higher Dimensions. As the consciousness ascends higher, the spiritual world comes closer, until there is no longer a “gap” but a continuum that is termed “Multi-Dimensional Consciousness”.

In this state, the human being is able to access both the material and spiritual realms with ease. There is no longer any need for intense meditation, since the access to the spirit realm is immediate and evident. People in the Multi-Dimensional state have accessed their Angelic presence or state, and recognize themselves as Spirit beings or Angels who also have a human body and are able to function in the material plane as material beings.

At this point, the Higher Self and the Lower self can be said to have blended, and the Human being is now a Human Angel.

The Human Angel is constantly aware of themselves as Angelic and as Powerful and Creative. They have no time or need for things such as fear and victim dramas. Their time is better spent in creating the kind of reality in which they would be happy and content.

Many Indigo and crystal children are already almost at this point of awareness, if not fully within it. As are many of the Indigo-Crystal adults who have made the transition to this state. It is these new beings, able to claim both their human and angelic inheritances, who will create the New Earth.

It is important to state, at this point, that it is imperative that those who make the transition into awareness of their angelic selves, be also aware of how important it is to be human and to be well grounded in the material dimensions or planes. The whole point of the Transition is to bring “Heaven” to “Earth”, and not to drift away into some ungrounded paradise state.

For Human Angels there is work to do.

Creating a New Earth that will bring Heaven to Earth. And since “heaven” is not so much a place as a state of consciousness, these Human Angels must work to bring the higher dimensional states of consciousness to the Earth plane. Once this is achieved, then a planetary culture will be birthed that will respect all beings as manifestations of the Divine Essence. And this culture will reflect that respect in its peace, harmony and creativity.

The Nature of Multi-Dimensionality

Until fairly recently, all humans born on Earth were born as Third Dimensional beings. This means that they were fully in the material plane or realm, and their consciousness was “locked” into the Third Dimension. They functioned on the first three chakras, the material, the emotional and the mental. Where there was spirituality, it was usually seen as something outside or other than normal every day functioning.

The Third Dimensional being is aware of him or herself as a separate and unique individual. There is no real sense of the unity or oneness of consciousness that is a factor of higher dimensional consciousness. Because of this sense of separation, humans have built a society that has very little awareness of the interconnectedness of beings and actions.

And because of this lack of awareness, humans have created a planet of sorrow and suffering, where individuals see no need to be responsible for their thoughts, feelings and actions. Fear of not surviving on the individual level, because of lack of resources, has led to greed and imbalances that need to be addressed in order to create a stable planetary home for all humans.

The Indigo children arrived with the key to multi-dimensionality. They were born into Third Dimensional bodies, but their consciousness was effectively in the Fourth Dimension and capable of moving into the Fifth. When this “wave” of Indigo consciousness arrived on the planet in the early 1970s, the way was opened for all humans and the planet itself to shift into the Fourth Dimension.

At the Fourth Dimensional level of Consciousness, humans become aware of the Universal Law of One, otherwise known as “Unity Consciousness”. This Law states that we are all One, we are all connected and that whatever affects one of us affects all of us. Indigo children carry this awareness in their consciousness, and it leads them to be warriors for many causes that will heal the Earth and stop humans from destroying and polluting their environment and harming other humans.

The Law of One also fosters the understanding in Indigo beings that we are all equal, and that no one is greater than any other. This group consciousness and group awareness is the path to the future for humans. We will learn to function co-operatively and for the good of all if we are to create the New Earth that we desire.

Indigos respect the talents and abilities of each individual, but these talents do not make any one greater than anyone else. The play of ego and self-importance has no real place in the life of an Indigo.

When an Indigo awareness opens into the Fifth Dimension, it becomes aware of itself as a Creator. Fifth Dimensional awareness loves to create. All the religious belief systems and the economic systems on Earth today are Fifth Dimensional Though Form creations that we hold in place by our continued support of these thought forms. They form a Fifth Dimensional grid around the Earth. Most lower- dimensional beings are completely unaware that their thoughts and behavior patterns are being controlled from this level.

When the Indigo awareness opens to this level, there is often a rejection of all belief systems and a consciousness of the freedom to create new and alternative ways of thinking and being. The Indigo person takes on the planetary mission of creating and bringing in new ways of thinking and being for Planet Earth.

But, at this level the consciousness is still concerned with dualities of “good” and “bad”, that determine what kind of system is best for Earth. The next step in consciousness is to move beyond duality and into a realm where all is seen as part of the greater good and for the good of the greater whole.

This advanced state is known as Sixth Dimensional Consciousness, and is the realm of the Christed Child or Magical Child. All Crystal children are born into this level of awareness. They have immediate access to the magical and spiritual aspects of who they are, and are able to blend imagination and creation in fantastic and joyous ways. If they were left to their own devices, they would immediately create a magical planet. But, they still have to deal with a largely Third Dimensional consciousness, and they struggle with the patterns and behaviors that they find here.

When an adult Indigo consciousness makes the shift into the Crystal state or awareness, they enter into Sixth Dimensional awareness and the Christ Consciousness seed. They are rebirthed, in consciousness, as a Christed or Magical child. With this comes an awareness of the playfulness of life, and the play of Spirit through human beings on this planet. Then all life is seen as magical and blessed, and all life is directed and advanced through the work of spirit. At this point, the being understands the principle of surrender to the flow of the greater evolutionary wave, while still exercising the right to be a creator on the individual level.

The Crystal consciousness, when it has matured enough at this level, can then move into the Seventh Dimensional level, where awareness opens onto the nature of the spiritual mission of the being. A Crystal or Christed adult at this level is ready to take on a planetary mission as a carrier of higher dimensional consciousness to others. The work may involve teaching and healing on a grand scale, or it may simply be to carry the energy in the auric field so that others may access the higher vibrations in their own upwards ascension path.

The Crystal child and adult now carry the potential to open fully to the Ninth level or Full Christ Consciousness. This incorporates the Eighth level, or Archetypal level, where the being has full control over the “story” of their life on earth, and the Ninth level, where the being assumes full responsibility for stewardship of the Planet.

The potential then exists for the being to continue on the journey to the Tenth level, where the being accesses his or her Solar System responsibilities; the Eleventh level, where the Galactic level of consciousness is accessed and finally the Twelfth level, where the Gold Ray of Universal Consciousness inaugurates the being as a Full Universal Being. The Thirteenth level represents the Master, who enters into the Divine Mystery as a fully conscious spark of the Divine Creative Essence.


An Evolutionary Leap

As can be seen from the above discussion, the Indigo-Crystal adventure represents a huge evolutionary leap for the human species. This is initially a huge leap in consciousness, reflected in the auric colors and the access to multi-dimensional layers of awareness in an individual.

But, what is manifest in the subtle or spiritual bodies must eventually make itself manifest in the physical or Earth plane body of each individual. And eventually, in the physical body of the Planet itself. Indigo and Crystal children and adults are an integral and dynamic part of the evolutionary leap into a new and Golden future.

Higher levels of consciousness, awareness of the interconnectedness of all things and a desire for an empowered and creative life will soon become the characteristics of all humans on Planet Earth.

In this article, we build a hypothesis that the current generation of indigo children may be associated with the Visitor/Close-Encounter phenomenon. I ask the whether this generation might be influenced by transgenic changes, possibly from the UFO abduction phenomenon, and back-inserted into the human genetic makeup. Or is this simply the adoption by the children of experiencer families, of “Awakening” memes from the parents?

In either case,

  • Could this be the fostering of a new generation of children with the empathic characteristics commonly ascribed to hybrids, and to those who have experienced Spiritual Awakening?

  • And might these be necessary, from the point of view of our cosmic “neighbors” to prevent a warlike humanity from wreaking interstellar havoc?

I call this idea “The Indigo Hypothesis”.

Introduction and Observations

In the last few years, as I have worked with greater numbers of close encounter experiencers, I have informally noticed a pattern in their family lines.
David Jacobs in “The Threat” [i], and Budd Hopkins in “Intruders” [ii] both clearly state that the UFO Abduction phenomenon is multi-generational in nature. David Jacobs further says that in each family of UFO encounter experiencers, the entire next generation of offspring may also be experiencers.

In my work with close encounter experiencers, what seems to have emerged is that the multigenerational characteristics of the phenomenon seem to propagate down the maternal family line. I have informally noticed the propagation of the phenomenon from grandmother, to mother, to daughter, and so on…

Another thing that I have noticed is that many experiencers – and especially in this generation, the children of experiencers – seem to have a very gifted, and highly metaphysical nature – what I describe as “Awakened”. Are these children some of those that are so often called “The Indigo Children?” Is the Indigo phenomenon at least partly associated with (deliberate or otherwise) the close encounter phenomenon?

Let’s look at some of the characteristics of indigo children, compare them with the characteristics of experiencers, and note whether there are resemblances. If there is a pattern, is this perhaps a sign of “The Awakening [iii]”, which it has been suggested might be a goal of the Visitor phenomenon? Alternatively, are these children simply reflecting the ideas and mind-sets of their parents/families?

The Indigo Children

In the book “The Indigo Children” by Jan Tober and Lee Carroll, [iv] and in the section by Wendy H. Chapman on The Indigo Children on the website, [v] the Indigo children are described in detail as being deeply empathic, visionary, intuitive, and having a deep sense of mission/purpose and a thin veil between the physical and spiritual worlds.

These children [vi]  [vii] are intellectually gifted, resistant to authority and have a high degree of PSI abilities. They often tend to have difficulties with the mundane, non-creative aspects of life – such as much of the education system.

The “Awakening” Literature

Many of these same characteristics can also be ascribed to those adults who are undergoing, or have undergone, an Awakening – either as a result of the CE4 phenomenon, or some other source. In their book “
Healing Shattered Reality” [viii] Alice Bryant and Linda Seebach discuss the Spiritual/Mental/Physical effects of the Encounter Phenomenon on the experiencer. In “The Awakening” I discussed many of the signs of spiritual awakening, and relate them to the UFO/CE4 phenomenon. I ask whether the relationship is one of cause/effect, or are they parallel phenomena, perhaps with a synchronistic relationship between them?

Barbara Harris Whitfield in her book “Spiritual Awakenings” [ix] describes the many signs and characteristics associated with such awakenings. She describes many possible triggers for such an experience: Near-Death-Experiences, Deep meditation and religious experiences, UFO/CE4 encounters, and personal health crises, as well many possible others. All of these seem to suggest that the Awakening phenomenon is triggered by powerful changes in a person’s life. Yet all of these changes seem to be spiritually-related. In some way, a person seems to “bring something back” from the experience that seems to be an extraordinary gift from “out there”.

For the newly Awakened, the signs of the phenomenon seem to include: a sudden shift in perspective to a more spiritual/metaphysical viewpoint; shifts in spiritual/religious views, beyond any one religion, to encompass all religions and all people; and less patience with the more petty aspects of human society, in the face of the environmental and spiritual issues that our society faces.

But foremost for our purposes, is the onset of psychic abilities and increased intuition. This seems to be the key, as it affords the newly Awakened an avenue for increased awareness and shift in perspective. As more than one experiencer has said “It was as if my eyes were suddenly opened”. As they have described to me, the Awakened seem to have more UFO sightings and experiences, either as a cause, effect, or synchronistic relationship with their other Awakening experiences.

Experiencers and Indigo Children

What we also seem to notice as we look at the families of experiencers is that the characteristics emerging in newly Awakened adults seem to be already present in their children. As indicated earlier, many close encounter experiencers describe their children as Indigos. As an informal observation, I have noted a disproportionately large number of such children among these families. It is as if these children were born Awakened.

A friend of mine, who is an educator and frequently teaches classes for gifted children, has observed that in her gifted classes there is a very large population of children who match the psychic, deeply-empathic, and deeply-intuitive description often attributed to the indigo child. In other classes she teaches, which are not at the gifted-children level, she notes that there are far fewer children who match this description.

She also notes that many of the gifted children seem to bear physical characteristics of experiencers, specifically scoop marks (she has observed this on their face and forehead though it has been noted that for experiencers such marks are more typically located on ankles, etc.). This suggests that, as the children of experiencer families, they may be continuing the family-line relationship with the Visitor phenomenon.

  • Might there be a correlation between the Visitor experience and the Indigo-Child phenomenon?

  • Could there be a “genetic agenda” to the Visitor phenomenon which might result in an increased number of Awakened children?

We can understand more about the presumed genetic agenda behind the phenomenon in several recent books by close encounter researchers. In his “Watchers” [x] book series Raymond Fowler describes how the UFO Abduction Phenomenon seems to be guiding humanity throughout history, perhaps signifying such an agenda.

In “Sight Unseen” by Budd Hopkins and Carol Rainey, [xi] the authors discuss the potential feasibility of transgenics, or gene transplantation from one species to another. They describe possible instances of apparently-human beings who exhibit strange alien-like characteristics. Similarly in my article “Close Encounters of the Third Kind in Our Everyday World” [xii] I describe similar cases of apparently human beings, with extraordinary characteristics. Among them are traits such as deep empathy, powerful intuition and psychic ability. These are also characteristics described in the Indigo children.

In addition, the abduction accounts of many experiencers contain procedures done to them, which seem to have fundamentally altered their very makeup – as one described it, “right down to the cellular level”. Could this be seen as a tampering with the very genetic makeup of the experiencer? Could this perhaps be a back-insertion of the results of the hybridization process into the genetic makeup, or other fundamental characteristics, of the experiencer? Does such technology yet exist to accomplish this?

The Motivation

  • What would be the motivation for such tampering with the human genetic makeup?

  • What would an Extraterrestrial strategy [xiii]  [xiv] be towards humanity?

  • And why would external Visitors want to change humanity in such a fundamental way?

A quick look at the modern history of humanity provides some immediate clues:

  1. Humanity is now on the verge of developing interstellar flight [xv]. Advances in zero point theory [xvi], the understanding of gravity, and other areas of physics [xvii] suggest that within one hundred to two hundred years, humans might well be out among the stars.

  2. Humanity has developed the capability for destruction on a planetary scale. We have developed multi-megaton nuclear weapons, which we could potentially [xviii] unleash in a global barrage, resulting in multi-gigatons of explosive power unleashed into the planetary environment. Thus, we have the capability of destroying the entire ecosystem and civilization of our world – or by extension, perhaps some other world as well.

  3. In many ways, humanity is a fundamentally warlike being. Our largest single industry is war [xix]. During modern times, our history has been dominated by such cataclysms as World War 1, World War 2, and uncountable genocidal massacres. [xx]

Thus, from the perspective of those presumed to be already-existing “out there” in the cosmic neighborhood, we can ask “are these the types of folks we would want coming out into the neighborhood?” In humanity’s current state of consciousness and behavior, I suggest that the answer is “No”, even though we may indeed be on the verge of star-flight.

If we are going “there”, then it becomes vital to the neighbors that we somehow be changed (tamed) in order to avoid universal catastrophe.

Additional Requisite Visitor Technology

What remains to be established in our formulation of this hypothesis is the technology via which genetic back-injection might take place. Yet even here, known technology may be just over the horizon. While humanity has not yet perfected the means to inject a new gene pattern into the overall cellular makeup of a higher-order living being, gene therapy [xxi] is an active area of research, and could soon become a viable technology.

Furthermore not every cell of the body would need to be modified; only the eggs or sperm of the parents. Since it has been established that these can be extracted via existing human technology, we can easily imagine technology for re-insertion. Thus for the Visitors, back-insertion of modified genes might be quite feasible.

CE4 Researchers may wish to examine UFO Abduction accounts to see if indeed, such procedures and technology are described.

The Indigo Hypothesis

This then, is what I call the “Indigo Hypothesis”:

That the genetic changes fostered by the Visitors may actually begin to be found in the general populace, in the new generation of humanity. We theorize a back-injection of hybridization changes by the Visitors, into experiencers for the purpose of integrating them into humanity as a whole. A result is the emerging Indigo generation we see today. The Indigo generation would thus be the manifestation of an effort by “them” to breed into our species an awakened being.

We can suggest that as these children take their functional place in society, we might see a more “awakened”, less-environmentally-impacting, and more-peaceful conduct of human affairs. In addition, we may begin to see a new humanity, more ready for contact, and a resulting more-open manifestation of “them”, to the general population of “us”.

The Null Hypotheses

As suggested earlier, perhaps there are other ways of viewing the relationship of indigo children and experiencer families.

  1. Nurture instead of Nature: Perhaps Indigo children are simply learning and adopting the views and mannerisms of their parents, who may have adopted “new-age” ideas, and/or have undergone a deep psychic/spiritual change. Perhaps the propagation of “Awakening” down the family line is the passing of memes [xxii], rather than genes.

  2. No Correlation: Perhaps the Indigo Children reflect a more global social phenomenon, which has no correlation with the UFO/CE4 phenomenon. The Indigo Children might reflect either a fundamental metaphysical phenomenon which we do not yet understand, or a propagation of ideas as described in null hypothesis 1.

Testing the Indigo Hypothesis

The purpose of a hypothesis is to serve as a tentative model, from which we can derive testable predictions. So what would be a good test of “The Indigo Hypothesis”? Here are some preliminary suggestions:

  • Genetics: Might the genome of indigo children show common markers, not present in non-indigos? If so, what characteristics would these genes code for? If we didn’t detect common but unique genetic markers among indigo children, would this support one of the null hypotheses?  [xxiii]

  • Genealogy: Does comparison of the family lines of indigo children with those of experiencers show a correlation? Are indigo children more often found in the family lines of close encounter experiencers? If so, what does this imply? If no strong correlation is found, then would null hypothesis 2 be supported?

  • Psychic Abilities: Do Indigo Children have greater psychic abilities? Perhaps this can be tested via experiments such as those at the PEAR lab at Princeton University [xxiv], which has been developing scientific tests of ESP and non-local consciousness.

  • Effects on World Affairs: Observing cultural, scientific and political events over the next ten-plus years, as the current generation of Indigo-Children becomes active in society. As this generation reaches a political-social critical mass, what effect does this have on the politics of our civilization? Is there a trend away from war and environmental destruction? Is there an incorporation of intuition and spirituality into mainstream society and politics?

  • Open Contact: As the above changes take place, is there an increase in open, multi-witness UFO and CE3 events over the next few years?

All of these tests, and others which I have not yet thought of, might better establish the validity or non-validity of this hypothesis.


If this hypothesis is true, then it suggests that the Visitors may want us to grow and eventually join the cosmic community. To me this offers hope:

  • that humanity can become an awakened cosmic/star-faring civilization

  • that there is a cheering section out there for us

In this idea I find a great sense of optimism. And at least in part, this is the core of the idea which I call “The Indigo Hypothesis”.

While these media still need to be extensively researched, they may provide fruitful new areas of future investigation.
