The Difference Between Star Kids And “Indigo” Or “Crystal” Children
When some people hear about the Star Kids, they ask if that is the
same thing as the “Indigo” children or “Crystal” children that some
people talk about. No, Star Kids is not interchangeable with these
other two labels that float around in some metaphysical circles. It
appears that it would be useful to clear up the confusion in some
people’s minds between Star Kids and so-called terms “Indigo” or
Because there are substantial differences.
By now the reader is hopefully very clear about who Star Kids are.
So, let’s take a look at the “Indigo” and “Crystal” labels that get
The “Indigo” label got started by a pair, Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.
Lee Carroll is an engineer, who maintained a technical audio
business in San Diego, and lives with his wife Pat in Del Mar,
California. For the past decade he has claimed to channel an
“entity” called Kryon. Jan Tober is a jazz singer who, tiring of
road tours, settled in Del Mar, California, and took up painting and
Carroll’s “Kryon channelings” caught on in the San Diego County
metaphysical circuit. “Kryon” sounds like many other dubious
channelings, complete with hokey florid New Age-y elocution, such
as, “Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service.”
“Kryon” is not afraid to side with Republican foreign policy, a
smart marketing idea in heavily-Republican San Diego County.
About the tense Middle East situation, “Kryon” blithely notes,
“Historians will look back upon the events of this time and say
there’s only one country in the world who had the power, the will,
and the reason to put a large stick into the Middle East and stir it
vigorously. And these historians will say in retrospect that without
the placeholder that you call your President, the things that will
take place in the Middle East ...would never have happened.”
One day Carroll “channeled” Kryon talking about “Indigo” children.
Soon, Carroll teamed up with his “spiritual” partner, Jan Tober and
co-wrote a book,
The Indigo Children (1999).
The “Indigo” label is their attempt to describe the new wave of
children people are starting to notice now. However, the construct
that Carroll and Tober have come up with is disquieting. And by this
point in this Star Kids book, you will quickly notice that the
“Indigo” label seems to be describing something quite else besides
According to Carroll and Tober “Indigoes”:
come into the world
with a feeling of royalty
come in feeling they deserve to be here
and are surprised when others don’t share their sense of
have difficulty with authority unless reasons are
given and they have choices
will simply not do certain things, like
wait in line
get frustrated with systems that are rote
seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind
are not shy
about letting people know what they need
frequently carry an
Attention-Deficit (ADD) or Hyperactivity Disorder (HD) diagnosis
have an indigo-colored aura
Well, frankly, the above sounds more like a description of a
spoiled, willful, distracted, self-centered brat. Whatever the above
jumble of descriptors is trying to describe, it certainly is not
One call tell that Carroll and Tober, neither of whom have a
background in child psychology, nor in experiencer research, are
trying to describe some of the new wave of children emerging now.
Yes, these new children are quite smart, some have a strong
leadership drive, and are impatient with and have difficulty
conforming to dysfunctional social structures.
And, yes, this causes
frustration for their parents and teachers.
But no, Star Kids are not little princesses who run around with
their nose in the air and feel a false sense of entitlement.
And, no, Star Kids don’t feel they deserve to be here. In fact, a
number of Star Kids feel that what they deserve is to be back in
their home among the stars, and that they are doing hard duty making
their way through life on Earth.
And, no, Star Kids are not anti-authority; they often feel the best
way to deal with authority is to out-reason the less-gifted person
who may be holding a position of authority.
And, no, all Star Kids are not fidgety brats who have unusual
difficulties in staying in line.
And, no, Star Kids are not antisocial when they are with non-Star
Kids. Star Kids may be more quiet or reserved around regular humans
they don’t know. Then again, there are plenty of extrovert,
socially-engaging Star Kids.
And, no, Star Kids are typically not pushy brats who insist on
getting their way.
And, no, Star Kids do not generally carry ADD or HD diagnoses,
although, as described earlier, a small minority of Star Kids may
get mislabeled that way.
And, no, all Star Kids do not have predominantly indigo-colored
auras. I have specifically asked several psychically-gifted persons
about the auras they see on Star Kids, and each agrees that Star
Kids come with a variety of size, coloration, and intensity of
auras, depending on factors which can change.
In 2003 another book came out called
The Crystal Children, written
by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. Doreen was attempting to describe the new
wave of children who have emerged since 1995. She does not see these
children as anything like Tober and Carroll’s “Indigo” typology. I
frankly find Dr. Virtue’s eye for the new kids much more accurate.
“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. ... 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, they are the pointers for where humanity is headed . . .
and it's a good direction! Sure, they may have tantrums
occasionally, but these children are largely forgiving and
So, “Crystal Children” is another label attempting to describe the
new generation of psychic and sensitive children now being born,
describing them as intuitive, telepathic, and possessing “opalescent
multi-hued auras”. However, Virtue does not explain why these
children are coming in now, why they are different, nor the role of
the Star Visitors in shepherding these children in.
In my view, the “Indigo” and “Crystal” labels are sincere attempts
to describe the markedly different children growing up now among us.
However, neither label speaks to the partial star heritage of these
children. Such an omission is not trivial. The Star Visitors are a
key factor in our past and origin, and their coming return en masse
will be an historic element of our near future. The Star Kids are
coming in now because the Star Visitors have taken compassion on our
situation, and are helping arrange that the young ones being born
now include the brightest and best. For all of these reasons it
seems right that the best descriptor for them is Star Kids.
Any of us can have a heart of compassion for the spoiled, willful,
distracted, self-centered, troubled youngsters that Tober and
Carroll seem to be categorizing. Such children and their families
need attention, specialized counseling, and compassionate support.
But that “Indigo” profile is most assuredly not an accurate
description of Star Kids.
Star Kids are extremely bright, often in creative and original ways.
Some very few also happen to have hyperactivity symptoms, but this
may be more due to advanced Star Visitor-DNA-based neurological
wiring, which does not quite mesh well within a human body
(psychomotor system), rather than due to true Hyperactivity
Star Kids are who they are due to the contribution of Star Visitor
genes to their overall predominantly human-partially
extraterrestrial genome. Or they are Star Kids because they are
reincarnated Star Visitors in human bodies for this lifetime. The
“Indigo” and “Crystal” labels, however well-intentioned, simply do
not deal with Star Kids’ partial modification and upgrading by the
Star Visitors. And such additional information about these new kids
is not trivial.
Hopefully the above explanation has offered some clarification of
the differences between the so-called "Indigo” and
“Crystal”-children labels and the genuine Star Kids.
“Star Child” To Be Distinguished From “Star Kids”
Lloyd Pye has been doing some interesting work unearthing anomalous,
very large humanoid skulls, which he says establish that there were
Star Visitors who resided at least temporarily on Earth many years
ago. He labels the owners of the skulls “Star Child(ren)”. That use
of the term is quite different than what is meant in this book by
Lloyd Pye's "Star Child" is the skull of a fully-extraterrestrial
person who resided for a while on Earth, and died and was buried
here many long years ago.
But Star Kids are contemporary, very much alive, advanced human
children who contain only some extraterrestrial genes, which provide
the basis for their advanced intelligence, health, psychic
abilities, spirituality, cosmic consciousness, etc. Those of you
Star Kids who are reading this book know this, being Star Kids
So, while Lloyd's term "Star Child" sounds similar to my term "Star
Kid", the meanings are quite different. I salute Lloyd Pye for his
separate work documenting long Star Visitor presence on Earth.
As we move further through the Transition from Fourth World to Fifth
World new culture, there will undoubtedly be further efforts to
refine and hone the vocabulary we will be using to describe the many
wondrous and spectacular changes that are going on. And I hope that
the Star Kids will take a clear leadership hand in clarifying and
providing better definition to the new world we are assembling.
It will be interesting to see the new Fifth World culture
developing, and a whole new vocabulary emerge to describe the new
features it will contain.
At that point I will gladly, like Joachim of old, utter my “Nunc
Dimittis”, hand over the reins to my younger stellar comrades, and
exit stage right.
