Indigo Children, Star Children and Crystal Children Investigated
Indigo Children
Indigo Children have been on mainstream television news and in dozens of newspapers. They are generally described as highly intelligent, creative, system busting teen psychics with a bright indigo aura and a mission to save the world.

There are scores of Indigo books and videos. Thousands of web-sites discuss the subject or host forums where Indigos can gather. There are even numerous tie-in products ranging from herbal medicines and dietary regimes to seperate special schools.

Personally I was actually a member of the Beloved Community Indigo cult for a limited period of time many years ago. I was then young, naive and unaware of anything about the groups’ murky origins. There are also many Indigo proponents amongst fringe writers and spiritual speaker’s. It is likely that most of them are unaware of the worrying issues attached to this human phenomenon. It has become clear to me that the vast majority of people involved are like myself innocent dupes. In my personal view the only real good to come out of the Indigo Child movement are the friendships forged between some of the young people involved.

So when did the children start to arrive?

In the original telling from the creators of the subject it all begins around 1982 or just before. Over the years more and often older people realised they too matched up to Indigo characteristics. This caused the start date to appear more flexible. There are sites now saying the new children started appearing around one hundred years ago. I have seen references to Jesus having been an early Indigo child. Everybody would like to feel included in something special happening that is is only natural.

So how do you tell Indigo people from other children or adults?

It is easy enough you just take a look at the list of Barnum statements below, match up to enough and hey presto you’re an Indigo. Being intuitive was generally considered a major characteristic in the early days but seems to have been replaced by strong empathy.

# Have strong self esteem, connection to source
# Know they belong here until they are told otherwise
# Have an obvious sense of self
# Have difficulty with discipline and authority
# Refuse to follow orders or directions
# Find it torture to waiting in lines, lack patience
# Get frustrated by ritual-oriented systems that require little creativity
# Often see better ways of doing thing at home and at school
# Are mostly nonconformists
# Do not respond to guilt trips, want good reasons
# Get bored rather easily with assigned tasks
# Are rather creative
# Are easily distractible, can do many things at once
# Display strong intuition
# Have strong empathy for others or NO empathy
# Develop abstract thinking very young
# Are gifted and/or talented, highly intelligent
# Are often identified or suspected of having ADD or ADHD, but can focus when they want to
# Are talented daydreamers and visionaries
# Have very old, deep, wise looking eyes
# Have spiritual intelligence and/or psychic skills
# Often express anger outwardly rather than inwardly and may have trouble with rage
# Need our support to discover themselves
# Are here to change the world - to help us live in greater harmony and peace with one another and to raise the vibration of the planet

Indigo Aura CoupleAssuming you match around twenty or so statements it’s time to buy yourself a book on what foods to feed your-self and an anger management CD.

Barnum Statements are lists of general characteristics used in psychology experiments. They are used to demonstrate the way in which humans tend to see very specific personal interpretations amidst extremely vague descriptions. They can very basically describe nearly any person. There has never been a rigorous investigation of Indigo children, or any new children. This includes research in neither the fringe or the mainstream communities. Certainly no real surveys or experiments have been publicised on the topic so far.

So how did it all begin?

Back in 1986 a lady named Nancy Ann Tappe wrote a book called ‘Understanding Your Life Thru Color’ which explained how she had started to see certain children surrounded by an Indigo energy field. Nancy first made this observation during the late 1970s or early 1980s. Nancy Tappe is described with having a rare brain disorder named syneasthesia. This condition mixes up information from the five normal senses allowing such weirdness as hearing shapes or tasting sounds. Nancy therefore had the ability to see colours where others would certainly not do so. This condition was recorded in her book as being a contributory factor alongside her psychic abilities.

Let us take a look at two interesting quotes from her book that will be helpful later:

“The life color is the single color of the aura that remains constant in most people from the cradle to the grave. There are a few people who change their color but this is rare. The life color establishes a focus for the entire lifetime, similar to having a major in college. Every life color carries with it assets as well as liabilities. In addition the mental and physical colors seldom change. The combination of these three colors together create a ‘baseline person’ for this lifetime. Usually each universal age is accompanied by a preponderance of people with that life color. For instance now most adults are either Blue or Violet, the two colors with the attributes most needed in this the Violet Age of transition. During the next age, the Indigo Age, Indigo colors will be the norm.”


[BF: Note that she speaks about past universal ages with different life colours. She was not alive in them and is merely taking this idea from Theosophy teachings]

“As one observes the Indigo lust for life and joy in living it is impossible to believe that there is impending doom for humankind. These bright eyed children and young adults seem to be the forerunners to a wonderful time and place in the future.”

It was not just Nancy Tappe that saw great ‘potential’ in the coming of the Indigo children. Well-known new-age figures Lee Carroll and Jan Tober offered supernatural confirmation of the arrival of the highly evolved indigo aura children. For those not familiar with his work Lee Carroll is the channel for the supposed multidimensional entity named ‘Kryon of Magnetic Service’. Kryon is the supposed creator of a magnetic grid system surrounding our planet, and wants us all to receive special implants. Lee Carroll claimed that with some help from Kryon’s magnetic personality [groan] he had been aware of the new children since 1989. It was in 1999 that he finally decided to write ‘The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived’.

The Indigo Children book founded a large new Indigo movement within the new-age. This sub-group has come to dominate the greater new-age movement itself. Realising how ‘rewarding’ it would be to work with the new ‘global problem solving’ children, a plethora of new-age guru’s lined up to offer a hand. Most notable amongst them were further famous self-proclaimed entity channels, Jimmy Twman, Neale Donald Walsch and Doreen Virtue.

These gurus and others added some new jargon which further complicated the subject. They certainly all made considerable sums of money from the purported new phenomena. Each based their work wholly on the first Indigo Children book. Claimed channelling abilities gave them a way to later tailor the descriptions and messages regarding the new children in totally unverifiable forms. Many other notable figures have also been involved over time.

Jimmy TwymanJimmy Twynman (alias Fagin) discovered that it was optimal for the indigo children to have mental or physical conditions. Very often he would organise severely disabled children to get involved with expensive psychic readings. Helped by an invisible secret Bosnian wisdom cult and further financed by his pay on demand channelled messages from Jesus, he soon had the money to buy a nice little cult centre. Jimmy Twyman also got his friend the, famous new-age author Neale Donald Walsch, to collaborate on an Indigo Child movie project. Walsch then encouraged his friend the established film producer Stephen Simon to assist. 

Being a member of the beloved community I recall many more interesting issues and instances of corrupt behaviour but will leave those for the moment. I was already naturally highly intuitive at that time. This is largely why I saw through many of the problems in the subject matter. In recent times the topic has grown increasingly cryptic as confusing new variations such as the Crystal, Star and Octarine children are being ‘recognised’ by entity channels such as Steve Rother and The Group (alias The Nine).

Ten years and several million dollars later Jan Tober, Lee Carroll and Nancy Tappe are back with a new book called ‘Indigo Children Ten Years On’. The posted web information for the book is very interesting. Carroll takes lots of seemingly bitter swipes at the Indigo movie team for profiting from a niche market that he created. Carroll criticises all the Indigo Internet sites dealing with the subject and then comes out with a real jawbreaker. He reveals that the Indigo movie was wrong largely because it incorrectly claimed the children were positive, intuitive and had Indigo auras!

Apparently everyone today has got it all wrong because Lee Carroll now says, “The Indigo title has nothing to do with auras or being psychic”.
He then adds that many of the evolved children are in fact, “…teenagers who are strapping on bombs or bringing guns to school.

Carroll makes it clear that he wants to remove the word psychic from Nancy Tappe on wikipedia and in reference to new varieties says of Tappe that, “she is firm in her statement that there are no new colors”. [Since 1982]

Indigo Aura LeafHuh?

Did we miss something somewhere there?

What about the ten years of new-age feeding frenzy the original book initiated and the thousands of sites now stating the new children were highly intuitive, passionate system busters with Indigo auras?

Important to ask is why they waited so long to supply the corrected information whilst everyone else involved was being misled? [Especially when Gurus pushing the info had working relationships with them]

We also are left wondering how did everything that Lee and Nancy stated originally, end up as the total opposite?

If these writers knew from the start that the only oddities in their evolved special children were personality disorders, everyone that came after them were deliberately fooled or were knowingly dishonest. Personally I think many scholars were naïve and overly willing to trust the original Indigo book. We were all lazy in checking for contradictory claims made about Indigo children. Not only this but the ever-increasing number of self-reported cases of 'Indigo Children' with psychic abilities seemed to reinforce the initial writings.

Examples of just some Indigo contradictions:

1. The children are supposed to stand out because of their behaviour, yet it is also quoted that over 90% of children in school now have the new mutation (whatever it is exactly). How can they stand out if only 1 in 10 does not?

2. The original world saving Indigos are now adults yet the world is worse than ever. 

3. The new children apparently have many problems such as anxiety, stress, rage, ADD and ADHD. These could be symptoms brought about by means other than, a rather retarded sounding, leap forward in human evolution (so much for special abilities).

Indigo Conspiracy and Manipulation - The Scary Backstory
Indigo Conspiracy The Nine
If you’re not already shaking your head in despair or utterly confused by the strange twists then here is the real kicker. The Indigo Children phenomenon has been linked to C.I.A. interests as well as the UN and the Pentagon. It is hardly surprising that news of possibly psychic children would be of interest to the men in the shadowy secret service cartels. Such children would be ideal candidates for a line of psy-ops experiments. Failing this they would at least want to interject so as to hamper any complications such children might cause them if left unchecked.

The C.I.A. and the new-age movement have always had some direct links. Some sections of the new-age movement hold beliefs very similar to those of the New World Order occultic groups. Those groups often advise adherents not to fight negative forces or to not even think about such concerns. Clearly most of the people categorised as new-age realise this is terrible advice merely providing an excuse to do nothing about preventable horrors inflicted on humanity.

The Pentagon's division on parapsychology or the Round Table Foundation, certainly took interest in psychic children. The main front man for most of their incredibly devious works was a Dr. Andrijah Puharich. Puharich himself had a background at the heart of the infamous mind control program MKULTRA. His previous work had been on a project that would direct voices into people’s heads at a distance. It is now the basis for the same science American military figures stated had been considered for use in Iraq. This involved beaming a discarnate voice into a person that would claim to be Allah speaking. Another spin off project was the implanted voice receiver within a single tooth.

His team created a channelling cult known as The Nine (supposedly the nine Egyptian gods of the Ennead) to act as their main interface with the new-age movement. Even in its early days the group involved numerous psychics and notable powerful figures. On more than one occasion a new channel would start off talking to entities other than the nine. Puharich would ‘correct’ the channel during the hypnotic trance and thus after that they would always be channelling The Nine. Several of the persons involved with the cult group have remained well-known figures in the fringe arena. Others involved are high level politicians from as far away as Russia. One researcher has noted that over the years more and more people in the new-age movements have claimed they are channelling The Nine.

Puharich was later to run a psy-ops program involving children who would now commonly be referred to as Indigo Children. His mind control and brainwashing experiments were carried out at what some have called the ‘Turkey Farm’. He spoke of the children being able to bring objects into existence from the ether or even teleport themselves. The laboratory eventually burned down and Puharich went into hiding claiming the CIA was after him. The covert organisations were apparently very interested in having special schools for the children. This was so that they would have easier access to them all in one place. That is of course better for ongoing experimentation including brainwashing techniques and parapsychological tests.

Is it then not interesting to note that the original figures whom helped birth the whole Indigo phenomena all have themselves strong links to channelled entities and some with even with world government organisations?

Lee Carroll has himself been invited to speak to the ‘United Nations Society of Enlightenment and Transformation’, formerly the United Nations Parapsychology Society, and six times so far.

UN Meditation RoomQuote: “The UN's "Meditation Room" is a sort of New Age monument to the many UN-affiliated New Age and occultic groups like the Lucis Trust and the UN's Society for Enlightenment and Transformation. Stained glass near the entrance to the Meditation Room displays pagan symbolism like the god Pan. To those unfamiliar with the UN, such symbolism may seem out of place. But the UN sees religion and mysticism as integral to its plans.

Building "a new world order requires a sense of moral obligation.... We need a spiritual catalyst to bring about change," said Samuel Insanally, a former president of the UN General Assembly.
Former UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller believes that the UN represents the "body of Christ" and that "divine or cosmic government" is the real goal of the United Nations.

The original description of the new children by Nancy Tober, Lee Caroll and their Guru friends was of confident young system busters with indigo auras and intuitive gifts. Then came the list of other more general characteristics. Now those they consider to be the evolved new-age children sound more like a group of children in a mind control program. They are exhibiting the resulting problems we might expect to see de-programmed cult members with compartmentalised minds. The special children are described as suffering chronic psychological conditions and some are even said to be going psycho killer in schools and offices. Insights and intuition are gone; any colours they may have radiated dimmed or disregarded. All very Manchurian Candidate sounding if you ask me.

The glaring red light here seems to be illuminating the fact that suspicious interests have guided the Indigo phenomena from very early on. The spiritual and positive elements are now being firmly pushed aside. Those still involved with the term Indigo Children in respect of gifted intuitive or specific aura colour now risk being tarred with the brush of having made everything up. The fallout from these new indigo revelations is already starting to spread.

Meanwhile, these other very troubled children are now hailed as the great leap forward in human evolution. That is according to the original proponents of the subject. The new emergent characteristics seem to be paranoia, anxiety and sociopathic tendencies born of psychological maladjustment. To me that sound's more like the type of new citizen brought about by mind altering chemicals, intense authoritarian pressures and thought modification experiments rather than any evolution of body or consciousness.

We have been naïve enough to believe the shady characters known best as the New World Order would allow a situation possibly dangerous to their plans to continue unchecked. They are in my opinion trying to stop the revolution in consciousness now beginning to occur largely within the younger generation. Where they can’t so easily access the more free thinking older individuals involved they attempt to cause confusion and division.

The NWO types are always playing the long game. When we see what they are doing it is already two leaps further beyond that. Their actions are always seeding further desired future events. Examples of this can be seen with the invasion of Afghanistan. By the time anyone became suspicious of motive the event had already set up an invasion of Iraq, the inevitable destabilising of neighbouring Pakistan and opened the road to war with Iran. Just imagine nuclear armed Pakistan falls under the sway of radical Taliban militants, which some experts predict will occur within three months. [Shiver]

Indian ProphecyIn the case of the new-age movement the puppeteers had been well aware of two ancient prophecies that deeply concerned them. They, as with the Nazis, are deeply involved with mysticism and occult practices by their own admissions. They take such things as prophecy far more seriously than the average citizen.

Firstly they feared the ancient Maya prophecy predicting the return of The Nine gods or energy forces around year 2012. These same nine forces are described by several other ancient cultures including the Egyptians. Secondly they feared the prophecies of the indigenous peoples of North America such as the Hopi Prophecy, which predicted a coming generation of gifted spiritual warriors set to put right the wrongs done to the planet. There is no prophecy about evolved Indigo aura children, but rather just of awakened humans stopping them.

The opposing interests used a well-tried strategy known as divide and rule. Stage one was the creating of a popular channelling cult, which purported to bring messages from Puarich's entities The Nine for distribution into the new-age movement. Of course this man specialising in beaming voices into others heads at a distance had initiated the project. The second stage was the creation of a movement that would initially closely resemble the one prophesised by the indigenous tribes. This then allowed these people more opportunity to study and take control of the direction of any young people involved and anyone in the fringe community trying to genuinely assist.

What could be more hampering to the broader consciousness change movement than two different groups being referred to as Indigo Children (with completely differing descriptions) and two separate sets of opposing spiritual forces both referred to as The Nine?

Inevitably confusion would occur. In fact the entire Indigo Children characteristic testing seems designed to confuse young people leaving them unsure whether they themselves are indeed a part of the special generation at all.

Alice in wonderland: “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”

We must stop this slide into chaos that has seemingly been carefully engineered from the get go. We must remove any elements of this movement that have been created by shady characters with doggie links. The indigo characteristic lists and indigo aura test questionnaires need to be immediately removed from all sites. They are suspect and divisive. The very term Indigo Children is misleading and separatist.

The original indigenous prophecies for the current special generation did not limit the movement to either a single aura colour or a specific list of psychological traits. Not surprisingly it was in fact a simple and fully inclusive message open to all ages. It allowed the individual a very simple mechanism for self-recognition and a heartening message of unity for all those feeling the wake up call, no matter what their aura colour or nationality.

It is important to remember that the opposing forces are perhaps not overtly manipulating the vast majority of the people that refer to themselves as Indigos. Many of the indigo groups are started by good people and therefore essentially have been helpful for the greatest part, despite the imbedded confusions. For this reason some Indigo subscribers may not at first believe what I am saying and will need to read all my sources in depth. These people need to remember that not everyone has been fortunate enough to develop their intuition or land in a more progressive group.

It is time for all those with spiritual knowledge, wisdom and genuine spiritual or psychic experiences to unite in assisting newcomers. Not just the young need welcoming, but all those waking from their slumber as energy frequencies shift. Let us not forget the wonderful job many of our conspiracy researchers have done and the work of many inspiring spiritual writers. We need to weed out the deliberately confusing data immediately and present the most welcoming and helpful message possible, which also happens to be inline with genuine ancient prophecies.

My conclusions is that the Indigo Children subject is likely wholly created by the CIA and directed by the New World Order. It's main Guru's are suspicious characters recieving channeled messages from goodness knows whom. It has mislead thousands of people and created division under the banner of community (it is a sub-community only). There is most certainly no such thing as an Indigo child. If you beleive there is then who can blame you? After all the CIA have put lots of time and effort into mastering this mind manipulation project and suckering good folk into it.

Tolstoy:"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven , thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives."

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
