The Power of the Word

Recently, we were asked why terms such as Indigo Children and Crystal Children were used for children exhibiting varied traits in areas such as personality, physicality and physiology, and part of the reason for this is to empower and educate. From my experiences, growing up and now at school with a range of different children, a medical diagnostic label such as ADHD and Autism has implications that something is wrong or that thlabel-34247_640e person is broken.

It is looking for symptoms and problems rather than looking for solutions. Remember that we become what we say we are. So if a child with one of these diagnosed labels finds out that this label is given to them and they are seen as problematic, then that’s what they’ll think is true about them. It may lead them to think that they aren’t worthy of fitting in or that they aren’t ‘normal’ like those without labels.

Wouldn’t it be far more empowering to highlight the strengths of these children through emphasising their gifts and unique ways of exploring the world? Whilst all these children have been coming to the Earth in higher numbers, some medical and scientific communities are looking straight past the differences as things to celebrate and welcome, rather, looking at them as things to fix. We are who we are and we are what we are and there’s nothing wrong or broken about us.

What we are being faced with is not surges of increasing epidemics of things like ADHD, Autism and the like, but rather we are facing awakenings in human evolution. Changing consciousness, communication, emotional understanding, compassion, integrity, unconditional love and remembering love as that is what we are and who we are.

My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, you are perfect just the way you are. We celebrate your presence here. We honour you. We bless you and we say, Namaste.  

Love from Nathan and Friends.

Respect and Indigo Children

cane 1During my time as a school teacher, I have heard things from various different teachers, parents and external stakeholders which can be summed up as phrases such as;

“Students don’t respect their teachers anymore”,
“There is no discipline in schools these days” and
“Students walk all over teachers as they have more rights than teachers”.

What is it that is raising these concerns in teachers, parents and members of the general public? Are teachers and parents really feeling that disempowered because of a ‘lack of discipline’ in schools and at home? Is it because there are new rules that protect children from harm that mean that ‘authority figures’ cannot impose their authority onto those who are not conforming?

Quite the contrary, really. In all honesty, we are witnessing the evolution of the human species. We are moving beyond the need to control others and exerting power in ways that are harmful; physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically. Let’s face it, Indigo Children can detect truth internally and ever so easily and naturally, whilst Crystal Children are drawn to those with open hearts.

If our children are a part of systems which are not based upon principles and foundations of integrity and honour, then who are they to be named and shamed for doing what could be considered ‘wrong’? Students walk out of class, refuse to do work, speak up and voice their truths, which sometimes escalates into arguments and defiance. What do we make of the situations involving these children, when they simply do not feel comfortable attempting to learn what is not feeling right for them?

Let’s consider Indigo Children at school for example. A teacher is teaching and prior to the lesson informs the students that what they are doing is boring and they need to do it just because they have to. How do you think an Indigo would respond in this situation?

“Teacher, you can’t make me do it. I don’t want to do it. It’s boring”

“Do it now. (Raising Voice). I’m the teacher and you must do your work”

Would a teacher make them do the work? As we write this, we are picturing an image of an Indigo being backed into the corner with their own personal space and integrity boundaries being overstepped. Volcano gives out the tremors and BANG! Books closed, angry words and mood and straight out the door!

3._School_EventsOr what if the school principal is someone who only punishes students without listening to their side of the story? What if the school principal only acknowledges academic pursuits or plays favourites with certain students and families? What kinds of levels of respect will Indigo Children have for them?

Reflecting upon the two scenarios given above, it could even be quite likely that our sample Indigo Child has more respect for the school janitor than the classroom teacher or school principal because the school janitor might be someone who likes to joke around, admire this student’s artworks and enjoy a good conversation with them. This might not fit in with the old ways, but personally, I think it’s a pretty genuine and honest way to demonstrate respect for another.

In the past, it was taught and generally expected that we would grow up and respect our elders, respect those with titles in front of them, those with more money than us, those who wear a particular style of clothes, and so on. With Indigo Children, we are moving to a different level of understanding what respect actually is. Respect is a thing which needs to be really earnt with Indigo Children and not just expected because of age, titles, social status and so on. Let’s bear in mind that many Indigo Children are old, wise souls who may have more experience and wisdom than you yourself even realises. So simply believing that they MUST respect you just because you are older is something that needs reconsideration. We are being taught to respect ourselves, believe in ourselves and what we do, so that these examples can be mirrored and reflected in the ways that we interact and deal with others.

Indigo Children won’t false friendships just for the sake of it, nor will they show their respect just to be nice. You’ll notice the differences in their behaviour and enthusiasm around different people whom they innately get along better with – people whom they appreciate and people who appreciate them.

In our older models of life, whether it be business, family, education, social structures and so on, we were operating under an inbalanced perspective of operating from distorted Masculine (Yang) energy. Masculine energy is outward projecting and focuses on action, logic, practicality and striving. In its distorted form, Masculine energy tends to look like things such as competition, demand, pushiness and struggle. Right now, we are moving to the return of the Feminine (Yin) energy, which is timely with the arrival of Indigo and Crystal Children. Feminine energy turns inwards and focuses on our sensitivity, receptivity, creativity, emotions and intuition.

In other words, what we are literally saying, is that in the past, it would’ve been generally considered the logical thing – older people – younger people. Older people deserve more respect and are always right, whilst younger people must always obey. The dominance of the Masculine energy saw to it that children were pushed and controlled in ways that came from a place of fear.

indexAs we move into an era accomodating the return of the Feminine energy, we are remembering that the world operates on a simple yet profound basis on the law of attraction. Rather than competing for our dominance over others and making children obey, we manifest it through the law of attraction and understanding our own needs and their needs. In doing so, we become more responsive to building positive relationships with students and families and we understand the significance of each others’ roles. We come to a mutual understanding and most importantly, we come from a place of love and respect.

In all honesty, listen to what children have to say. Listen to them voice their feelings, their emotions, their opinions and ideas. They have great wisdom within them that is not simply ruled out or irrelevant just because someone has been on this planet longer than them. Age in Earth years certainly does not absolutely mean that they have been ‘alive’ for a longer time.

indexMother Mary says “in order to teach the world and its incoming generations about respect, then we need to see each other in the world on an equal playing field. In truth, we are all holy children of the Universe, here to make an impact and a profound difference. Love is where each of us is from. Whether we are a man or woman, a child, an animal, of the elemental, the angelic, the crystal kingdoms, of this world or another, it matters not. There is a common thread of unity that unites each and all in one way or another. Respect yourselves and respect each other, honouring what each has to say and honouring each one’s unique way. Live the life that you were born to live, and live your life in service of all that you can give. Receive and accept to Heaven’s fate, of the world you live in, love overruling hate. In this life here and now, the holy presence of life all around.”


My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, you are all beautiful. We are all connected by a cosmic web of love and light. Let it shine and let yourselves shine. Acknowledge the light in you as the light in me.

“Why don’t you just turn it off?” “Why don’t you just try and be normal?”

Experiencing life as a spiritual being is not something that you can turn on or off. Once you’ve crossed the river, there’s no turning back. It’s like discovering that you are alive in another way. When you’re aware that you are alive, that you have a soul, there is no possible way that could ignore your own life whilst still being here.

For me, growing up as an intuitive and sensitive child, it was like being naturally aware and switched on to my own thoughts and feelings quite regularly. I knew what others were feeling and thinking. I saw through people who were not honest. I knew when I was being lied to. I knew when something wasn’t right. I connected with people who I could see as my friends and I could trust instantly rather than connecting with anyone and figuring it out later.

I came from a Catholic background and I was shy about sharing my spiritual gifts like I was some kind of naughty alien. (In retrospect, Hiding from what was natural to me was what actually made me the alien!) We never, ever spoke about these things at home or school. I felt confused and powerless because I was taught one thing in school but I was experiencing things differently and didn’t have anyone to talk to. Growing up through my teenage years meant that it was important to be ‘normal’, so I hid from my spiritual gifts. I covered my ears and eyes. I blocked my heart and I ignored messages from Spirit.

Oh it made the road so much more bumpier! So many “should haves” and “would haves” because I had a hunch about something or someone and didn’t follow through with it.

Maybe it was just a lucky guess“, I would say to myself afterwards. That was my comfort phrase. These ‘lucky guesses’ were the same kinds of things that forewarned me about two consecutive knee injuries that I had. I ignored them and it set me back on the path to remembering, strengthening and nurturing whatever this feeling or skill was. I didn’t know what to call it because when I was a child, I didn’t even know there was a name for it, because I was just being normal in my soul’s own eyes, heart and mind.

And so began my journey to reconnect with my Spirituality when I was 20 years old.

Connection to Spirit and communicating with Angels and Spirit Guides through feeling, sight, sound and thought is perfectly normal and natural. With whatever we try to hide from ourselves or others, we end up expending a lot more energy and causing more stress to ourselves and those around us. Be authentic in expressing yourself and you’ll attract experiences that are relevant and authentic to you. This might not always mean the easiest path but it is the most rewarding, fulfiling and nourishing one at that.

To be normal is to be natural and comfortable with yourself before considering what level of comfort others have with you. Be honest with yourself and appreciate yourself for all that you are and all that you have. Imagine what could be achieved if everyone knew what their soul’s desires were? This takes me to where I am on my journey now and my passion and intention to empower, educate and enlighten children and their parents and teachers on the magic that will always be a part of their lives. We will explore this in further detail as this blog progresses 🙂

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends.
