Indigo children, Crystal Children or Star Children are different. They feel different and are perplexingly or wondrously atypical compared to others. Star Seeds have had lives elsewhere in the Universe than on Earth. The Law of One refers to them as "wanderers." Some Star Seeds have never experienced life on Earth before and find it perplexing and incommodious. (Starseeds,Walk-Ins and Wanderers)
Is my child special?
- not "normal," feeling they don't fit in and not capable of making the effort to conform
- on the autistic spectrum or ADHD, can be hyperfocused on what interests them and careless about all else
- independent-minded, chafing against regimentation
“Do not think that children are wise. They have no wisdom yet. They will walk off the cliff if you let them. They will put their hands in the fire if you let them. They do not have wisdom yet." (Marshall Vian Summers. Raising Children (December 18, 2007)
Are we from different planets?
"You may not be intrinsically related to your own offspring. That is one reason why parents and children fight. Intrinsic relationship is established beyond this world." (Marshall Vian Summers. Wisdom from the Greater Community Volume Two, Chapter 21: Devotion and Commitment)
"Look to see if you have any contact with extraterrestrial forces yourself, either through the mental environment or through direct physical contact. Be courageous in asking yourself, 'Have I had any direct contact with an extraterrestrial force? And if so, what was the nature of the contact and what occurred?'" (Marshall Vian Summers. Guidelines for Preparing for the Greater Community)
Richard Boylan finds "the children born of experiencers tend to be extraordinary, very bright, quick to grow up, endowed with various psychic abilities, robust, good-looking, and cosmic-minded," and he "considered them startling and charming." (Richard Boylan. Star Kids)
