Children of the New Dawn
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 matter.
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 have known 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. Drunvalo Melchizedek distinguishes between the Indigo children and the Super-Psychic children, whom I prefer to call the Violet children. Jimmy Twyman, in 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 themselves 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 Crystal Vibration’. 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. As 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 door.
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 fields. 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 beings. 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 physically. They are in touch with fairies, angels and 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.
I invite readers who have feedback, resources or stories to share, or wish to network with others on this theme, to please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know of internet chatrooms, alternative schools, books, or other resources for and about these children, please contact me too. Before long, using some of these materials, I hope to create an interactive forum on “Children of the New Dawn” through my website, www.doorwaytoeternity.com. This would also be a place where these children could find each other, share their struggles and their gifts, and exchange ideas for a better world.
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. The Sun-Eyed Children are the inheritors of this New Dawn!
