When I went to wikipedia to learn more about these unusual children, here is what I found:
Descriptions of indigo children include:
the belief that they are empathetic, curious, strong-willed, independent, and often perceived by friends and family as being strange;
possess a clear sense of self-definition and purpose;
exhibit a strong innate sub-conscious spirituality from early childhood (which, however, does not necessarily imply a direct interest in spiritual or religious areas);
a strong feeling of entitlement, or "deserving to be here."
Other alleged traits include:
a high intelligence quotient, an inherent intuitive ability; and
resistance to rigid, control-based paradigms of authority.
According to Tober and Carroll, indigo children may function poorly in conventional schools due to their rejection of rigid authority, being smarter (or more spiritually mature) than their teachers, and a lack of response to guilt-, fear- or manipulation-based discipline.
And when I went to the site of Doreen Virtue, who has written on the various types of
children, I found the following:
Meet the Rainbow Children!
They are the embodiment of our divinity and the example of our potential. The Rainbow Children have never lived on this planet before, and they’re going straight to the Crystal Children as their moms and dads. These children are entirely fearless of everybody. They’re little avatars who are all about service. These are children who are only here to give—Rainbow Children are already at their spiritual peak.
Then, there’s the Crystal Children.
The first thing that most people notice about them is their eyes—large, penetrating and wise beyond their years. The Crystal Children’s eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for these children 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 lightworkers, roughly ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways, Crystal Children are the pointers for where humanity is headed . . . and it's a good direction!
The older children (approximately ages 7 through 25), are called "Indigo Children."
They 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.
I personally simply keep an open mind on all of this information. I find it presents an intriguing
theory, but as I mentioned earlier, it is quite possible that such gifted children have always been born across the planet, but only now with our advanced media so readily available, are they able to fully realize their own potential. In any event, we seem to have an abundance of highly gifted children in various areas.
As a side note: I once had a psychic reading with Nancy Tappe, who originated the notion of the Indigo children. I don't recall much of the reading, other than that she told me that when I returned home from California, I would find a check on my desk. But when I got back, I did not find such a check. But--when I opened my desk drawer in my office, there it was!
And here is another side note: In Doris Lesssing's brilliant novel "The Four Gated City", she foresees a time when universal catastrophe has wiped out much of the globe's population. A small remnant remains in a colony in northern Africa. Their children speak very little, but they communicate with one another through telepathy. These children strongly resemble the types described above--humans with superior capacities,
being produced through some kind of mutation, possibly brought about by atomic warfare.
(Doris Lessing has just died. I admired her greatly and will miss her presence. She was a mystic, among other things, and wrote about issues far in advance of her time.)
