Indigo Children Part II

(Dedicated to Morgan and Angela, in Boaz, AL, and to Ayla from Boston.) It is time to talk more about Indigo Children...and in another post tomorrow, Indigo Adults. Yes, we are real, we are here, and we (as adults) have been walking on this world for many years. Far more than many of you realize that humans have known.

 As Time itself becomes more and more significant regarding socio-economic, political, and geo-physical changes on Earth, it is more important than ever that we are recognized as being DIFFERENT in our values, our sensitivities, and our purpose for knowing what and why we are here to teach and share information. I would also say by my own background as an adult Indigo to educators and those in the field of education: "We do not learn like you, we do not follow your traditional ways and methods, and we do not care to be judged nor evaluated by your out-of-balance standards that have been enforced by fear, intimidation, and a broad lack of awareness on your part. Do not expect us to teach our own in the ways that you do--and do not think you will prevent us from making our efforts known to those who need to hear them and learn."

From Indigo Children The phenomenon of the so-called, Indigo Children is an amazing tale. Parents, teachers and child care facilitators from all over describe the attributes of children currently coming of age as representing a fundamental paradigm shift over what we have traditionally thought about children, their aspirations, and their future. The great challenge for the rest of us is to encourage this extraordinary development as if it were the hope of the future -- which it likely is, inasmuch as children are fundamentally the lifeblood of the community. At the same time, we must recognize that traditional methods of dealing with children, or the horrific drugging of authority-questioning young people with Ritalin, et al, can only lead to grief for them and everyone around them. What is needed is a whole new system of nurturing what many will not even understand, and allowing without fear the emergence of a new Hierarchy of Values, arriving in the minds and feelings of the children. 

 Kiara Windrider , who has studied the phenomenon is some depth, offers the following insights [reprinted with permission]. Variously called the Indigo and Violet children, the Children of Oz, or the Sun Eyed Children of the Marvelous Dawn, this generation of young people seems to be a new species of humanity arising on Earth today. They 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 [they] need special support to control and develop these gifts. The Indigo children generally seem to range in age from the teens into the thirties, while the Violet children are younger, and carry a different mandate. 

 Some of you reading this comprise the Indigo generation, and you are birthing a new species of kids. 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. As with the hundredth monkey phenomenon [1] they are the first to step into what Sri Aurobindo envisioned as “supramental consciousness”, which will eventually become available to the rest of us also, if we choose it. There is a new “root race” forming on Earth! Perhaps some of you reading this are being called to provide emotional support, or to provide guidance in “training” them, or to provide safe havens for them to come together, or to support their mission by attuning with them through their global mind-link. For more thoughts on this subject, see 

Also, Ajna site has an article at: (5/9/5) Richard Giles , using the perspective of Astrology has his own take on the Indigo Children. “Among other attributes, the children relate easily to the rush of images of modern movies and communications and have no trouble understanding everything -- their information processing abilities sometimes breathtaking. They are very sensitive children in tune with the pace of technological and future change, have few self-worth issues, absolutely no fear of authority, frustrated by systems that are non-creative and ritual oriented, and they want to do things in new and better ways. They sometimes seem antisocial, and do not respond to guilt-inducing discipline techniques in school or at home. [emphasis added] “Many of these children are gifted souls. They combine the weird, inventive and futuristic energies of Uranus with the inspirational energies of Neptune. They have all sorts of patterns by which their behaviors are indicated - probably the most obvious is what we call ADHD or ADD. However, they ought not be diagnosed as hyperactive, dyslexic and suffering from neurological disorders. 

The late astrologer Donna Cunningham in her excellent article entitled The Ritalin Generation, describes them as children who may be ‘wired’ differently from the rest of us. She suggests that rather than having ADD and being described as hyperactive, it is more likely the previous generations (the rest of us) are to be considered hypoactive by comparison (Mountain Astrologer, April/May 2001). “The children elected as ‘Indigo’ by authors Carroll and Tober, in their book, The Indigo Children [Hay House, 1999] may be the ones who can best adjust to the future as it’s forming now with its vast high tech and mind expanding possibilities. Only they have a nervous system wired for the immense unfolding of the next few decades, processing and acting upon astoundingly large amounts of information in very short spaces of time. This is why the new movie and TV advertisements don’t leave them mind-staggered like they do many of us. 

 The Indigo Children can be described as creative, independent, brilliant and self-governing. Unfortunately it also means they do not fit in with today’s education systems which to many of these children, seem as unfulfilling as a discarded old piece of rag and as frustratingly slow as can be with non-responsive, entrenched authoritarianism. “Many then are seen as difficult and overactive and are drugged out with Ritalin, etc., and other pharmaceutical prescriptions to keep them limited to the older standards. Give them enlightened teachers who don’t have issues with authority themselves and they will thrive. Lock their minds up and they will rebel or refuse to cooperate and drop out. “Identifying this combination child is the first step (not all born from 1988 have every characteristic). Cooperating with them is next. They will inherit the environmental predicament made by today’s leaders as their big issue being called upon to resolve it. They need support, understanding, creativeness and patience.”

Titanic astrology and the karma of ego and hubris

      My birthday is April 14th, the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. In more ways than one, I have a “Titanic connection.”  

          Part of what I mean is a concept pioneered by my Seattle friend and astrologer, Eileen Grimes, whose book Titanic Astrology – The Grand Design of a Famous Shipwreck, was endorsed by Noel Tyl and Michael Lutin, two of the premier names in psychological astrology circles.  Eileen has also served on the board of the Washington State Astrological Association and teaches a popular series of astrology courses and workshops.  Her site is

          Eileen’s research of more than 1000 charts connected to the Titanic’s legacy and disaster has revealed a very valuable and important set of markers to consider in psychological astrology.  In my view after reading her book and recognizing my personal association beyond my birth date with this tragedy, the Titanic stands as an indication of the hubris, or elevated arrogance, of mankind; in the case of the Titanic, that it was about the Edwardian time period’s infatuation with glamour and amenities rather than practicality for safety that stands as the greater part of the reason more than 1500 people lost their lives.  This too is about Ego, and that word itself is an Aries trait—which certainly ties into the latter half of the sign and the above-mentioned date of the Titanic’s unfortunate voyage.  

          What Eileen has identified are four major cardinal points within a range of degrees that are consistent with the building of the ship, its voyage, and the important people associated with it, ranging from passengers to the board directors of the White Star Line and the crew.  These marker points are within the range of 18-25 degrees of the Aries-Cancer-Libra-Capricorn cross.  As cardinal signs, these are the ones which psychologically indicate that the soul is prepared to accept a lifetime of challenges and experiences that are demanding and more direct in nature regarding significant soul lessons.  Depending on a person’s birth date, they may or may not have a number of these ranges of cardinal sign placements and degrees; one variation is to use midpoints as a determination.  (For reference, a midpoint is the mid-range of two signs: kind of a 50-50 position.  Most computers can provide this grid.)

          What does a person with a significant “Titanic signature” experience in his/her life and how does it play out in psychological astrology?  He or she may undergo tremendous Life Change experiences that reveal a great deal about the need to manage and control the ego, or they may be open to great upheavals of events or circumstances that are like the biblical story of Job (or Joseph—or even Samson.  All three men were known to be outspoken about their superior status—and were humbled as a means of learning to control this).   

In a social setting, the Titanic’s sinking and the bombastic attitude that the ship was unsinkable are reminders that those individuals who may carry the Titanic signature are the embodiment and reminder we are responsible for the voice of reason and practicality as a way of protecting innocent people as well as cautioning against elevated thinking without foundation.

          Other events in society also mark this way of imprinting us in the ways that we are cautioned to heed the warnings after disaster strikes:  the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City in 1911 that killed 146 young women, mostly immigrants; the Olympic luge athlete who died in the 2010 Winter Games event after warning his family that he was concerned about the safety of the track; the Tenerife (Canary Islands) airport disaster of 1977 when two 747 airliners collided and killed 583 people, the greatest air catastrophe ever known; the Bhopal chemical accident in India which killed anywhere from 4,000 to 20,000 people; and of course, the Exxon Valdez tanker spill of crude oil in Alaska in 1984, the Gulf of Mexico oil well explosion of 2010, and the nuclear plant disasters at Chernobyl in 1986 and the Fukashima reactor in Japan in 2011.  

     The messages are clear each time:  when we forget to care for each other’s safety as members of society or ignore the hazards and dangers to the environment, we are forced into action that is devastating and overwhelming in its overall price.  Unfortunately, these cardinal degrees are potential signals of being motivated to learn a major phase of responsibility—like the influence and legacy of a great ship that was doomed for failure because no one thought of looking at the synchronicity of the event until Eileen mapped out the possible identifying coordinates.

America's medical-social clairvoyant and prophet: Edgar Cayce

This is from the A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment) web site, dedicated to the work of Edgar Cayce.  A really interesting book about Cayce also comes from the biography of the doctor with whom he worked, Dr. Wesley Ketchum.

  One of the more interesting things I learned from Cayce's work in self-hypnosis came from a reading he did for himself, where he was asked about his next lifetime.  He replied that he was a young on the coast of Nebraska in 2030.  (I strongly recommend you check out my post about the fault lines and geo-seismic activity to better understand the meaning of that prediction.)

Who Was Edgar Cayce?
Twentieth Century Psychic and Medical Clairvoyant

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) has been called the "sleeping prophet," the "father of holistic medicine," and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. For more than 40 years of his adult life, Cayce gave psychic "readings" to thousands of seekers while in an unconscious state, diagnosing illnesses and revealing lives lived in the past and prophecies yet to come. But who, exactly, was Edgar Cayce?

Cayce was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877, and his psychic abilities began to appear as early as his childhood. He was able to see and talk to his late grandfather's spirit, and often played with "imaginary friends" whom he said were spirits on the other side. He also displayed an uncanny ability to memorize the pages of a book simply by sleeping on it. These gifts labeled the young Cayce as strange, but all Cayce really wanted was to help others, especially children.

Later in life, Cayce would find that he had the ability to put himself into a sleep-like state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. In this state of relaxation and meditation, he was able to place his mind in contact with all time and space — the universal consciousness, also known as the super-conscious mind. From there, he could respond to questions as broad as, "What are the secrets of the universe?" and "What is my purpose in life?" to as specific as, "What can I do to help my arthritis?" and "How were the pyramids of Egypt built? His responses to these questions came to be called "readings," and their insights offer practical help and advice to individuals even today.

Many people are surprised to learn that Edgar Cayce was a devoted churchgoer and Sunday school teacher. At a young age, Cayce vowed to read the Bible for every year of his life, and at the time of his death in 1945, he had accomplished this task. Perhaps the readings said it best, when asked how to become psychic, Cayce’s advice was to become more spiritual.

Although Cayce died more than 60 years ago, the timeliness of the material in the readings — with subjects like how to discovering your mission in life, developing your intuition, exploring ancient mysteries, and taking responsibility for your health — is evidenced by the hundreds of books that have been written on the various aspects of this work as well as the dozen or so titles focusing on Cayce's life itself. Together, these books contain information so valuable that even Edgar Cayce himself might have hesitated to predict their impact on the contemporary world. In 1945, the year of his passing, who could have known that terms such as "meditation," "Akashic records," "spiritual growth," "auras," "soul mates," and "holistic health" would become household words to millions?

The majority of Edgar Cayce's readings deal with holistic health and the treatment of illness. As it was at the time Cayce was giving readings, still today, individuals from all walks of life and belief receive physical relief from illnesses or ailments through information given in the readings — some readings were given as far back as 100 years ago! Yet, although best known for this material, the sleeping Cayce did not seem to be limited to concerns about the physical body. In fact, in their entirety, the readings discuss an astonishing 10,000 different topics. This vast array of subject matter can be narrowed down into a smaller group of topics that, when compiled together, deal with the following five categories: (1) Health-Related Information; (2) Philosophy and Reincarnation; (3) Dreams and Dream Interpretation; (4) ESP and Psychic Phenomena; and (5) Spiritual Growth, Meditation, and Prayer.

Further details of Cayce's life and work are explored in the classic book, There Is a River (1942), by Thomas Sugrue, available in hardback, paperback, or audio book versions.

Members of Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), the nonprofit founded by Cayce in 1931, have access to the entire set of 14,306 readings in a database residing in the member-only section of our Web site. The readings can also be found in their entirety in our on-site library, located at our headquarters in Virginia Beach and open to the public daily.

Reiki healing videos and info: William Lee Rand

Below are two videos from William Lee Rand's DVD on reiki treatments.  In one, he shows the opening movements for treating and applying reiki to another person, and in the second, how to apply reiki to your own body.

Reiki is now being used by hospitals as a means of promoting healing and wellness for patients.

William Lee Rand, founder and president of "The International Center for Reiki Training," has authored "Reiki, The Healing Touch," "The Reiki Touch Kit," "Reiki for a New Millennium," "The Spirit of Reiki," (along with Arjava Petter and Walter Lubeck) "The Reiki Class Tapes" and many other Reiki articles and CDs. In 1993-95, with the help of some of his students, he developed the Karuna Reiki® system of healing. He is also founder of Center for Reiki Research and editor in chief of the Reiki News Magazine as well as editor of the Online Reiki Newsletter. In 1997 he traveled to the North Pole to place a World Peace Crystal Grid, dedicated to world peace and did the same thing at the South Pole in 1999. In 2004 he place a Peace Grid in Jerusalem, in 2005 at the ICRT teaching center in Southfield, Michigan and in 2009 the Maluhia Lani Reiki center on Maui. (See the Reiki News articles section for back articles online and Our Online Web Store for information about tapes and other products.)
William received Reiki I in 1981, Reiki II in 1982, and became a Reiki Master in 1989. William received the Reiki master level of training from five Reiki masters. He made many trips to Japan to research Reiki and also received Reiki I&II training from Mrs. Yamaguchi, who received her master or shinpiden directly from Dr. Hayashi.
William has done research on the origin and nature of the Usui System of Natural Healing and developed several new techniques including Reiki psychic surgery, the healing attunement and the Karuna system of Reiki. He is continually in contact with Reiki practitioners and teachers around the world, exchanging ideas, and developing new techniques.  
William also has a strong background in metaphysics and has been a professional astrologer, hypnotherapist, past life regression therapist, rebirther, and is certified in Neuro Linguistic Programing.
