Tribe for Mamas of Indigo/Crystal/Rainbow Children - Page 26

post #501 of 745
I couldn't help but read the whole thing... I was so excited to find people who I could relate w/ and vice versa!! I was saying "Yes! That's it exactly!" to almost every post I read...-getting goosebumps!

Thank you all for being so welcoming, and open to re-talking (I'm sure that's not a word) about things I missed out on the first time!

I know what you mean about the almost losing yourself thing... I don't think that it's just Jade, probably a combination of a lot of different elements in my life, not enough time, energy etc. But definitley in "becoming Mama" I've lost touch with a lot of pieces of who I was before.... That and she needs so much of my energy, nothing else seems to get quite enough of what I have left. -if that makes any sense.

Have any of you read The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield? There is a section in his book about parenting, and it talks about how for the first several years of life that children get their source energy from their parents. That attention, focus, energy helps them to be more confident, self-aware, and in touch with who they are and their purpose. I'm wondering if this relates at all, and how it might be different or not with Crystal/Indigo children. I would be very interested to hear other's thoughts on this!

anyway, someone mentioned an interesting point and i wanted to comment:
before i was pg, I was very spiritually "tuned", and very creative. I used to play music a lot, several hours every day on my mandolin and guitar and flute, I used to write poetry and journals and stories and letters, I used to crochet like mad, making all kinds of things imaginable, I used to bake amazing creations in organic flour and dark chocolate, and was just crafty and creative in general.

I used to tell wonderful fairy tales that I made up on the spot, acting them out with actions and voices, tales like little girls searching for something in the woods, following a world of dragons, elves, fairies and talking animals, going on a kind of spiritual quest of discovery to learn an important lesson and find herself back where she started, but wiser and happier.

I used to meditate and do yoga and keep a "clean" diet. I used to be very intuitive, almost to the point of magic...

but somehow, when i got pregnant, i just lost my inspiration, i slowly stopped playing music and making things. now i dont even have an instrument any more! i used to do powerful reiki healings, and i used to 'see' people's pain and know exactly how to relieve it. now... well, i rarely see auras any more, and mostly i leave the healing work up to DD, who definately surpasses my skills!

it feels like all my creative powers went into creating this little life, and sustaining her, and now I'm just drained, a "mere mortal" as my partner puts it

does anyone else have similar experiences?
I can definitely relate. Before I was pregnant with DD, I was a lot more intuitive. Since she was about 6 months old I've felt like it's almost as if I've transfered my intuition to her. I've been trying to work on building mine back up, but it's been a slow and sometimes frustrating process. Right now, both of my children are definitely more sensitive than I am.
Namaste

Wow... me too!! Good to identify with some other moms on this point. I think that when we create a child in our bodies, some of our abilities (and even thoughts/memories) are syphoned to him/her. Perhaps that's why this would happen? I was a lot more "empathic" and creative before I had my son.

Just thoughts.

Btw, I just found out about Indigo/Crystal children because of you fine womyn. Thank you for sharing your wisdom -- my world makes more sense now.

i got goosebumps now! i also lost my "sensitivity" once i had my son. i used to make jewelry, anything i could think of, paint, alot of yoga and meditation, always inthe clouds, hardly ever here...and once i got pregnant, i also have the feeling that all of my creative nergy went to give him life.

it´s hard to explain to others...my husband also laughs at me about being a "mortal"!!! but i feel a biiig part of my spirituality is gone...or at least gone for a while??? is it in my son? where is it????????
post #505 of 745
I'm glad to hear that other mamas feel like theyve lost a lot of creativity and inspiration.
I guess it really does go into creating children.
I wonder if there's any correlation between loss of energy and the "indigo/crystal-ness" of the child...
obviously most kids born these days have these traits, but I wonder if our mothers and grandmothers experienced this the same way.

I always have this image of mothers 100 years ago tirelessly popping out kids and keeping house and working. (and dying of old age at 45 )

I have been really thinking about this a lot and it makes so much sense. The post about how children use us as their connection to source for the first 2 years makes a lot of sense to me. I almost wish I had known that b/c it might have made the first few months w/ ds a bit easier if I had understood this. I was so drained physically and spiritually and I felt really empty.

Well, I guess I don't wish things different, but I am glad we have been talking about this as I prepare for this new little lovebug. It seems that during this pregnancy the more I accept that I am sharing my source connection the more I have access to it.

And here I thought it was Post-Partum depression that wouldn't go away. DS really zapped my energy and my will for a very long time -- I only recently feel I'm back to being myself again and he just turned FOUR!

I feel so much better knowing others have experienced this too.

Good grief!!! I've said that a MILLION times about almost every aspect of being a mother! If only I'd known before...
and the funny thing is, I'm not the first mother in the world. I even have a mother of my own. there are millions of us out there. WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME ALL THIS STUFF!!!??? (could it be that I wasnt listening, thinking that kids are something that happens to other people )
Why do we all live in little boxes and keep our happy faces on all the time?
why dont we teach each other, share our experiences and our knowledge?

you know, its like in some of those TV shows or movies. Like 'LOST', any of you watch that? if all of the characters would just tell everyone else all the stuff that's going on, they'd all be better off; having all the information.
sigh

yeah, me too. and I'm also just starting to be myself again and my DD also just turned 4!

post #512 of 745
i´m here i just forget to come by...i´ve always been forgetful but since my son was born...i´m lucky to have my head on permanently or to wear my son cuz i think i´d probably leave him somewhere! i forget absolutely everything!!!

i´ve beent hinking about this loss of energy and creativity...when does it ocme back? he´s 14mo and i don´t see it coming back to me!! i´d get together with a few girls to sing mantras, don´t hav the energy to go past 3 minutes of chanting. used to meditate, i prefer to sleep. I WANT IT BACK!!!

on top of it all, i start working weekends. we need the money and they´re the only days my dh cans tay with ds. i´m worried i won´t have the energy!
post #513 of 745
I am still here...just a little preoccupied at the other forum....fun stuff!

paak.... I hear you mama! In looking back at my experience w/ it and preparing to start all over again, my only advice is to just go with the flow of what you have now. It WILL change and you feel more energetic and get some of your "old" life back, but for now tap into the sacred energy you have available to you now, because as things return to "normal" that will change also.

-Sorry its been awhile, Life just got busy there for a bit. Hopefully its settling back down for now!

Anyway I had a question I was hoping you all could help me with...

A lot of you were talking about how if an indigo/crystal child is medicated, that they start losing their gifts. After that happens, they are off meds etc. is there a way for them to reconnect with that part of themselves that has been stifeled? What if that "child" is now an "adult"?

How would you present any of these ideas to one who may not be open to more "out there" concepts?

Can't wait to hear your ideas/input!!!

Of course! We always have the option of reconnecting with our Source! We are never fully separated.

I do not believe meds. cause kids to "loose" their powers, rather it numbs them to spiritual energy. And to tell you the truth I have never been medicated for long periods of time so I could not tell you. I wonder if there are any indigo mamas out there who were medicated at some point in their lives and if they felt any difference (or what that difference was) afterwards.
post #517 of 745
LOL... sorry, I've been preoccupied with Facebook. ;-) Did you know even Facebook has a group for Indigo Children? Just found it yesterday...
post #518 of 745
okay erthe mama you have a good excuse. I have a note from the doctor, anyone else?

anyway, I have a question:
DD has lately started to get really sensitive and shy. she cant handle new people, and not children at all. she gets hysterical sensory overload if there;s loud noise as well, so going to a playground where there are other children playing has become a kind of torture for her. she desperately wants to play, but is terrified-shy of the other kids, and the noise overwhelms her.
I think its been about 4 months since she even played with any other kids, except for maybe once or twice on odd moments.

she started needing very specific circumstances for her to be able to connect with other people; like it has to be very quiet, and slow and gentle, the child has to be very reserved, and having a snack to share helps. but creating this kind of situation is really tough, and we've just moved to a new country, and we're about to move to another state...

anyway, does anyone else know more about sensory issues or shyness?

Hightened Sensitivity

Hi Majikfaerie,

I actually have read an article online that talks about that kind of sensitivity. I think the article was called The Indigo/Crystal Transition. I thought it was really helpful and explained A Lot! I'll see if I can find it again and post the link to it!

Aloha Mamas...I've out of the loop for quite a while...on top of being a newbie here...but really want to reconnect.

My DD is an Indigo (as am I)...I'm still trying to figure out DS.
I recently came across a pretty interesting book called "Spiritually Healing The Indigo Children (and adult Indigos, too!) by Wayne & Ellen Dosick.
I've read almost all the way through it and I am really impressed. I cried through the first chapters because of how accurately they described my personal experiences growing up and today...as well as what I see my DD going through.

I'm wondering if any of you here have heard of this book and/or utilized the exercises they outline in the book. I'm hoping to begin work with my DD this week and it would be great to hear some other experiences.
