Older and Cusp Crystal Children
by Doreen Virtue
Since the publication of my book, The Crystal Children, I’ve talked with an increased number of people about Crystal Children. Two clear patterns have lately been noticeable: Older Crystal Children and also cusp Crystal Children.Most Crystal Children were born after 1994. But previous to this time, a few Crystals came to earth to scout around. Their assignment was to investigate the current energy patterns of the planet and its populace, and make sure that earth was ready to be populated with Crystal Children. Some of these older Crystal Children are now in their twenties.
The Older Crystal Children have the same characteristics as the younger Crystals: huge eyes, pores that emanate light, gentle loving personalities, and extremely sensitive. Just like Older Indigo Children (people with clear Indigo characteristics, who were born in the 1950’s and 1960’s), Older Crystal Children sometimes feel like they don’t belong. Their peer group is 10 to 15 years younger than they are.
Older Crystal Children do best in relationships with other gentle souls, and they also find solace in companionships with animals and nature. It’s essential for Older Crystal Children to live in gentle surroundings that are quiet, away from argumentative people, and near trees, flowers, and animals. If Crystal Children go into harsher environments, listening to music on headphones can help as a energetic shield, as can wearing a crystal pendant over the heart.
Connecting with the angels can also held Older Crystal Children to manifest relationships, jobs, and living situations that are suited to their gentle dispositions. It’s important for Older Crystal Children to not passively accept abusive situations. Sometimes Older Crystal Children are conflict phobic, and avoid arguments at all costs. In these cases, the Crystal Child must use their metaphysical mental power of affirmation, visualization, prayer, and meditation to alleviate abusive situations. No one – no matter how gentle and loving they are – should accept an abusive situation.
The Older Crystal Children whom I’ve met have given me a lot of hope about the future of our young Crystal Children. The Older ones have managed to retain their angelic sweetness, and haven’t nose-dived into sarcasm or cynicism. I believe this is because they’re relying upon intuition and Divine guidance to manage their lives, instead of building walls of defensiveness against pain.
This reminds me of a psychic game that my Dad played with me regularly when I was a child. This game truly helped me build and maintain my intuitive and psychic abilities as an adult. Dad would hide objects around the house and then encourage me to go into my physical and emotional feelings to find the object. Dad would walk with me and say, “You’re getting warmer,” or, “You’re getting colder,” to guide me. These were my earliest psychic development classes, and I prize them today. You can do the same with your Crystal and Indigo Children.
What about Cusp Crystal Children? Cusp Crystal Children are those who have characteristics of both the Indigo and the Crystal Children. They are similar to a person who is born around the twenty-first day of the month, giving them characteristics of both astrological sun signs on either side.
Cusp Crystal Children are usually nine to twelve years old, and they represent the change in energy from the Indigo Generation (which came in huge waves from 1975 to 1995) to the Crystal Generation (which began a huge influx in 1995).
Cusp Crystal Children are very sensitive, loving, and fascinated by animals and nature. They’re magical children, who have the warrior anger edge of Indigo Children. They can sometimes seem out-of-control, especially if their diet has additives or if they’re around stressful energy. These children are true hybrids who can be a challenging handful to exasperated parents.
If we remember that sensitive children give us clues and feedback about stress in our environment, we can follow their lead and create more peaceful environments at home, work, and in our social settings. If the child is being affected by harsh energy and acts out as a result, then on some level, the same harsh energy is also negatively affecting everyone else involved, too. It’s just that the Cusp Crystal Child is more aware of harsh energy, and is more outspoken about disliking it. Instead of getting upset with the child, why not focus upon healing the source of the harsh energy?
In all ways, our Crystal and Indigo Children are a gift to us parents . . . and a gift to the world. Their super-sensitivity will help us purge this planet of dishonesty and greed, and replace it with cooperation, generosity, and manifestation power. Our sacred task is to ensure that the children’s spiritual gifts blossom and thrive. As we hold this intention, we’re all sure to grow spiritually along the way.
