What's a "Crystal Child"?

05 January, 2020
"Indigo" and "Crystal" are not labels. These adjectives alludes to children with different levels of consciousness and extraordinary abilities. However, what exactly is an "indigo child"?

A crystal child is part of a generation which promises to intervene in the world through love, peace, and harmony. In this article, we’ll tell you how to identify a crystal child. Maybe you have one at home.

People have said the cornerstone for change in the world is the children. For many years, a theory has existed which suggests that humanity will gradually improve through genetic changes over one or more generations. Its followers tend to be quite spiritual.

This theory classifies children by psychological patterns and unusual behaviour. Some people believe that the first generation of spiritual children turned up during the 50’s or 60’s. However, their attempts to improve the world were not successful.

As a result, between the 70’s and 90’s, another generation arrived. This generation were known as the indigo children. Indigo children, with hardened personalities, are called “system busters.” Their mission is to fight actions and attitudes that don’t derive from love.

Indigo children seek respect for human values and honesty. However, recently people have been talking about children of a different nature: the crystal children. The first person to identify this generation was Steve Rother in 1999.

In 2002, Rother officially published his findings in a chapter of his bookRe-Member, A Handbook for Human Evolution. Since then, research has been carried out to precisely define their attributes and characteristics.

Who are the Crystal Children?

Crystal children are peaceful beings looking for truth and balance between the intuitive and irrational. In contrast with indigo children, who strive to focus humanity on well-being amongst change, crystal children have a healing mission.

Crystal children tend to be very beautiful, with a pure and bright aura, and large expressive eyes. They have two particular attributes: they have powerful abilities, which people often consider to be magic, and are extraordinarily sensitive to low vibration energy.

What does “Crystal Child” mean?

“Indigo” or “Crystal” are not just labels. They refer to the different levels of consciousness.

This generation of youngster is associated with crystal vibration, an energy which vibrates in all living beings. Moving between one plane of consciousness to another changes a person’s vibration.

The crystal vibration frequency is one of the purest ways matter can manifest itself. In fact, crystal energy is a precise balance between energetic polarity (masculine-feminine, thinking-feeling). This is the type of energy that particularly vibrates in crystal children.

What are Crystal Children Like?

This generation of healing children is quiet, conciliatory, peaceful, loving, and compassionate. In the book, Indigo and Crystal Children, Questions and Answers, the author claims parents of this generation see them as “little angels.”

This is because they have a balanced temperament. For example, they love to bring peace, give kisses and hugs, even before learning to speak. They’re also very discreet. They don’t tend to stand out and prefer to go unnoticed, despite calling the attention of sensitive people.

Within traditional medicine, crystal children tend to have certain developmental disorders. These include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, or Autistic Spectrum Disorder. However, this has nothing to do with the causes for their behavior; they have an important life purpose.


In the article, Waking Up the Crystal Children, Steve Rother broadly identifies the main attributes of these little ones. Through this he hopes to better define crystal children.

For example, a crystal child has psycho-kinetic abilities, vibratory hypersensitivity, and is connected with the earth. They also feel emotional empathy and are allergic to fear, among other characteristics.


There is no scientific evidence for this theory. In fact, specialists claim that you could apply such qualities and attributes to any child, in any place and time. We should also remember that every person and child is different and unique.

A crystal or indigo child is simply a way of describing psycho-energetic characteristics. The aim of this classification is to understand these children, but above all, understand their message.
