Subject: Indigo Children
I read this tonight and thought it worth sharing.
It's an excerpt from an article in "Gateways."
....Indigo Children [a book
by Jan Tober and Lee Carroll] received so much attention because
it documented children speaking about themselves and there experiences
of being different. Some of these children showed consciousness
advanced beyond their age. Since the book was published, we have
many more examples of children with an obviously different consciousness.
Below is a quote from a book written by a Brazilian eight-year-old
whom one might say is mad. However, if one is familiar with the
work of Rudolf Steiner, then what the child says is not all that
"I come from the core of the sun to fulfill my task...The
children who are born now come from a more progressive school
than that of Mars, for example from the Sun. these new beings
will help that the Earth does not experience a too radical transformation...
I do not come to the earth all by myself, I come together with
a group of souls. There are many other soul groups. Together
we are in the other world, before we come to the earth. Then
I go to earth together with this group of souls through various
spheres, but first I have to go to the sun. this Sun gives me
strength in order to prepare for my path to earth...the newborn
is afraid to be locked into the reality of the body. He misses
the essential unity of the place that he comes from, and therefore
he connects quickly for the people who care for him. He gives
to them the roll of the highest beings. If parents believe in
material things only, then they draw the children more and more
into the physical. While they teach him to speak, they limit
his thoughts. When children grow older, they gradually lose the
connection to their origin."
His father once told him about a legend about the angle of forgetfulness
who kisses the children before birth so they forget about their
spiritual existence. The child said, "Yes, this is true.
But I took great care ,and, when the angle came, I moved my head
sideways, and the angle touched me only a little. Therefore,
I can remember. It is sad if one forgets everything. Now there
are many children who bring with them the memory of God. The
most difficult part is not the remembering, but putting it into
Truth and Love

I had just come across this from one of my
Steiner did tell us that toward the end of
the century, clairvoyance would begin to arise naturally in new
generations of children, didn't he? Already, in the 80's, I had
a few children in my classrooms who could remember certain things.
That is why it is so important that there be teachers and parents
who are open minded and able to listen to a child without contradicting
or judging. In the past, most people who had "visions"
as children were called liars or worse and often subjected to
punishments of various forms.
On the other hand, this is the prime reason
for Steiner's bringing knowledge that had been "esoteric"
to the common light of day, so that people had some guidance
in self-development that would allow them to nurture their gifts
in a healthy way. (As adults - we do NOT do exercises with children
that specifically work on their faculties of clairvoyance - for
any WCs out there who are listening in!)
What we do, is listen with open minds, love
with open hearts and support and nuture the child with a will
open to what she or he is bringing from all levels of conciousness.
