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
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.
distinguishes between the Indigo children and the Super-Psychic
children, whom I prefer to call the Violet children. Jimmy Twyman,
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 (www.lightworker.com) has been communicating for many
years with a group of light beings who very fittingly call
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
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
www.lightworker.com/beacons. 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.
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
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
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
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
They are in touch with fairies,
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.
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!
