If you’ve ever come across the terms ‘rainbow children’, ‘indigo child’ or ‘crystal child’, it’s likely you immediately wanted to know more about these fascinating groups of star souls. It’s also possible you are one.

What Are Star Children?

Star children are the disruptors and heart healers amongst us. They are beautiful, loving yet strong willed souls that come from all corners of the universe to help humanity shift out of the old paradigm or control, fear, greed and manipulation, and instead shift into a new era of love, peace, integrity, cooperation and abundance.

They possess extraordinary psychic and spiritual gifts, with no two star children having the exact same abilities.

Each star child carries a unique energetic blueprint within their DNA, containing their collective soul mission as well as their individual personal mission on Earth. 

Unlike some starseed types who struggle to remember their innate abilities, gifts and mission, star children, are born into the physical realm fully remembering their divine qualities. This is why many star children find their true calling from a young age.

Who are the Indigo Children?

Most likely born between the 1950’s and 1980’s, indigo children are sensitive, strong willed innovators here to help humanity realign with its core truth. It’s believed there were two points in history that led to a huge wave of indigo starseeds incarnating on Earth; after World War II and during the 1970’s to 1980’s.

If you look at how different the 1960’s were from the 1980’s in terms of technological and social advancement, you can see the influence of the indigo child.

I’ve always seen them as the rapid ascenders or system shakers, paving the way for a new order to be ushered in, despite the criticism and controversy they may face. Indigos challenge the old way of thinking, clearing the way for crystals and rainbows to carry out their mission.

Common Indigo Children Traits

There are over 35 indigo child traits in total, check out my other post, ‘am I an Indigo Child?’ for a deep dive into this beautiful star group. These traits only scratch the surface, but are the most common ones I’ve seen.

  • Headstrong and strong willed with a sharp mind
  • Insightful, will find new ways to solve an old problem
  • Carry a rebellious streak and dislike authority
  • Likely carries negative karma into this life which needs to be healed
  • Drawn to creative expression
  • Strong connection with nature, animals and plants
  • Seems very emotional, may exhibit mood swings
  • Feel lost or misunderstood
  • They can across as anti-social or withdrawn at times
  • Suffer from anxiety, low self esteem or low self worth

Who are the Crystal Children?

Crystal children are the starseeds, spiritual teachers and gifted healers of our generation, known for their incredible ability to embody their true light and divine purpose at all times.

As their name suggests they are crystal clear about their purpose here on Earth, or at least have an idea or a vision as to what they came here to do.

If a crystal child doesn’t know their mission, it’s likely they’re out of sync with their true nature, or are simply ignoring it in fear or doubt.

They possess a deep-rooted love for animals and nature, but sometimes struggle to understand the animosity and hate humans show eachother.

Highly sensitive, old, empathetic souls, the main wave of crystal children incarnated on Earth between the decades of 1980’s to late 1990’s, though that’s not a hard and fast rule.

When looking into their eyes, you’ll likely feel a connection to their soul, and may feel a sense of relief or joy in their presence. They came to heal what the indigo children couldn’t; the emotional side, shadow side of humanity.

Common Crystal Children Traits

Being a crystal child myself I’ve put together this ultimate in depth guide, ‘45 traits of crystal children – are you a crystal child?’. If you feel a strong pull to this soul group, I recommend checking it out. It might help you make sense of the way you feel.

  • Filled with creativity
  • Miracle creators
  • Embody Pleiades energy, though not necessarily a Pleiadian starseed
  • Natural healers, who value connection over materialism
  • Adore animals, nature, trees, plants and can sense their energy
  • Likely a skilled crystal healer with a collection to prove it
  • Often mistaken as autistic children as they don’t fit in with the other children
  • Come across as a sage, or old soul even at a young age
  • Don’t perform well under high-stress or chaotic situations
  • Strong sense of adventure; dream of pioneering or escaping to the unknown
  • Feel like they don’t fit in, but have a specific purpose to perform
  • Likely to take on other people’s energy without realizing

Who are the Rainbow Children?

The newest generation of star children to arrive on Earth, the rainbow children likely arrived from the year 2000 onwards.

Their most distinctive characteristic? They incarnate free from any karma. They have nothing to heal, nothing to break free of, no shadow side to release, and so naturally maintain a super high vibrational frequency.

Why? They’ve never lived a past life on Earth before, though that’s not to say they haven’t lived other lives in different dimensions.

Because of this, rainbow children are inherently gifted, and most of the time they know it.

From a young age they possessed strong claircognizant abilities and are very in tune with their spiritual side.

Drawn to color and brightness, rainbow children are likely to come across as wacky, unique and quirky to Earth souls.

They’re not afraid to put their personal power above the need to ‘fit in’ – something this group doesn’t do. That’s not to say they’re loud and abrasive though, quite the opposite, they can be quiet, empathetic and generally shy.

Where Did the Rainbow Children Come From?

Not much is known about the rainbow children, because they’re so new. Anything I write about them is drawn from my own intuition and understanding of their characteristics having encountered these souls a few times before.

Personally, I believe they originated from a higher dimension rather than from a different star system. It’s possible their souls are direct descendants of ascended masters such as Buddha or Mother Mary.

In this sense, they’ve always been here, but haven’t been called to ‘arrive’ until now. Their souls will likely continue to incarnate on Earth for the next 5 years or so.

Common Rainbow Children Traits:

I’ve written a more in depth guide about rainbow children, listing all 23 of their known traits. Feel free to check it out if this soul group resonates with you.

  • Bright, bubbly and energetic personalities
  • They have an undeniable strong personal power
  • Fearless in pursuit of their ambitions
  • Passionate about everything in their life
  • Effortless manifestors
  • Attuned to the world of color
  • Strong telepathic abilities
  • Very trusting
  • Unlikely to develop illness or mental health issues unless out of alignment
  • Can be quiet and shy at times

What’s Next – When Will a New Generation of Star Children Arrive?

More indigo, crystal and rainbow children will continue to incarnate, with the latter being the most dominant type moving forward.

It’s possible we’re on the cusp of a new star child being ‘born’. 2020 was a complete ‘tower’ moment where the world was put on hold.

Mother Gaia made a statement and was quick to show that we’re no match for her abilities; be that good or bad. With so much upheaval and change, it’s this kind of phenomenon that gives way to a new star person to incarnate.
