11 Signs You’re a Rainbow Child

Blessed Samhain! This week we are going to go back to looking at the different types of starseeds. Today we will talk about the last one of the main three. So far we have talked about indigo children and crystal children. This week we are talking about rainbow children. So if you have read my other posts about starseeds, you’ll know I think my brother is an Indigo child and I think I am a crystal child. I also think my sister is a rainbow child. So as I tell you the signs of a rainbow child I will tell you how I think my sister fits each description and essentially use her as an example.

So what is a rainbow child? Rainbow children are here to help heal the earth and bring back balance between earth and humans. Rainbow children have very high vibrations and will create almost a web that surrounds the earth. Rainbow children are also considered light workers. Unlike indigos and crystals who have to do certain actions to achieve their goals here on earth, rainbows simply need to exist to do their work. Below are 11 signs you could be a rainbow child.

#1 A rainbow child is usually born to a crystal parent

While this may be true, I think the situation might be a bit different in our home. I think instead of being born to a crystal parent she was born into the home of a crystal. I am 7 years older than my sister and was a huge part of how she was raised. I think that was an equal substitute in our situation.

#2 Rainbows are typically born into stable homes

I actually learned that indigos usually chose dysfunctional families. This all makes a crazy amount of sense for my family. My brother was born a year before my parents divorced and my sister wasn’t born until my mother remarried and has been with this man ever since.

#3 They are usually psychic or very intuitive

My sister says she often has dreams and that whatever happens in them often manifests itself in real life.

#4 They are hyperactive or have high energy. You may see them running, hopping, skipping, or jumping everywhere they go

This is very true for my sister. She has such high energy, that as a crystal child who is very introverted, that it is very very overwhelming sometimes. She is always running around the house and being silly.

#5 They are passionate, creative, and enthusiastic

My sister is a brilliant artist. She also loves to sing. And when she finds something she is interested in she is passionate and enthusiastic about it for a long time. She was really interested in oracle/tarot a little while ago. She is obsessed with crystals.

#6 You will never feel judged by a rainbow child

My sister is the most open-minded and kindest person I know. I can tell her anything and she has never judged me or told me she thinks something is dumb or silly. She embraces everything and is just excited that I am happy.

#7 They are not competitive

This is one thing that doesn’t align with my sister. She is one of the most competitive people I know. However she is competitive not because she has a high ego or wants others to be less good then here. Instead she uses competition to motivate her. Competition makes helps make her the best her there is.

#8 They are strong-willed

This ties in to her competitiveness. She knows what she wants and what she needs and she will do anything to get those things. If she knows she can be better at basketball she will be determined and keep working until she does it.

#9 They were born around the 2000’s

This is accurate as well as my sister was born in 2005.

#10 They recover quickly from negative emotions

I have rarely seen my sister in a bad mood. Unless our brother is being annoying she is very good at jumping out of bad moods. She is usually happy whenever I talk to her.

#11 The typically have balanced male and female energies

I can’t really vouch for this one with her because this is something only she can feel. However this is thought to be why there are more gender neutral people these days. My sister though does have a pretty balanced interest in “girly” things and “tomboy” things.

11 Signs You’re an Indigo Child

While I was researching about being an empath, I came across information about starseeds. As you know, if you’ve read my post about starseeds, starseeds are people whose soul originate from a different planet. There are different types of starseeds but in general there are 3 main types. There are the indigo, the crystal, and the rainbow children. While doing my research I found I realized that myself, my brother, and my sister all have characteristics of each type of starseed. My brother matches the general description of an indigo. I match the crystal and my little sister matches the rainbow. Today I am going to talk about the indigo children. Do remember though that this is a general description and you may not fit with all of these signs. That’s okay, every soul is different. When I get to the signs of being an indigo child, I will give examples about my brother and how I see each trait in him.

So what exactly is an indigo child? An indigo child is a soul that originates from a different planet. That soul comes to earth to help improve it. An indigo tends to be the person tearing down the institutions. They seek the truth and are quite good at telling when they are being deceived, even at a young age. Another thing to note is a lot of indigo children are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD or other mood disorders. Indigos tend to be headstrong and freethinking which to the medical field can look like these types of disorders. (This is not to say that all children with ADD/ADHD are Indigo children.)

#1 You are strong willed.

My brother is a very strong willed person. Our parents are divorced and as a kid he always did whatever he wanted. I would let myself feel guilty for wanting to spend time with one parent over the other, and would never have the will to ask permission to be with that parent. My brother though had no issues. He would demand what he wanted. Now as a young adult my brother has moved to the city I live in. It is 3 hours away from our family. Everyone tried to tell him to stay in our hometown. No one thought he would be able to make it. Now he’s living in an apartment, working, and reaching his goals.

#2 You’re a freethinker

So this means you don’t just follow with whatever society says. You think for yourself and you make your own decisions. My brother is definitely a freethinker. I tend to side with society and so when it comes to me making decisions it happens rather quickly because I don’t think freely. My brother though he thinks for himself and makes choices for himself. This often results in me not agreeing because it is often the opposite of what I would do. But at the end of the day he does what he wants without the worry of society and I think he is better for it.

#3 You’re a nonconformist

When you’re a child this probably looks like disobedience, and being a troublesome kid. As an adult it probably shows itself in not liking to be controlled by others. My brother has always taken the harder road. He could never just do what was told of him and listen to authority. He always had to do the exact opposite and learn everything the hard way. He learns best from mistakes rather than reflecting on the things he’s done right. This is neither bad or good. It just is.

#4 . You’re a truth seeker

The truth is important to you. You are quite good at being about to tell when you are being lied to or if someone is hiding something from you. I think this is a very personal trait and is something I can’t really give examples of for my brother. I feel he is the only one who really knows how he feels about this.

#5 You are highly intuitive

For my brother I feel this comes up in him being an empath. He is very good at picking up others emotions. I believe he draws a lot of low energy people, a lot of energy vampires. He has always attracted a lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses. He has such a nurturing personality that these energy vampires take advantage of him and use up all his energy. This is physically harmful for him because he is literally always sleeping. He’s always so drained. So while being intuitive can be a blessing, make sure the indigo in your life is not being taken advantage of for it. 

#6 You want to change the world

This could be in big things or smaller things. Maybe some people will want to be a president, or a scientist, or a humanitarian. My brother he has all these aspirations to work in various selfless fields. Next fall he is going to be going into human services. He is currently working on getting all the needed credits to become a paramedic and he also wants to get a certificate in early childhood education. He is currently a lifeguard. He loves working with children with additional needs. He wants to change the world a little at a time.

#7 You’re empathetic and compassionate.

I kind of already covered this in sign #5. But ya even if you aren’t an empath you will likely be an empathetic and compassionate person. You feel things so intensely that sometimes it even hurts. This high level of empathy can also cause depression and anxiety. I don’t know if it still affects him to this day but these were definitely issues he was dealing with when he was younger.

#8 You’re a leader

You may find you have a hard time working in teams or for other people. My brother has always been someone who questions authority. He never just gives respect to someone simply because they are of authority. You have to earn that from him and it isn’t easy. He definitely enjoys being in charge of himself.

#9 You have a loner personality

You find it difficult to be around too many people at once and often prefer to spend your time alone. My brother growing up was always alone in his room. He never wanted to be around any of us and was always much happier doing his own thing.

#10 You struggle with boredom

You tend to struggle with routine and structure. Because of this and your inability to stay focused you may have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My brother has been diagnosed since he was in about grade 2. Boredom is definitely something he struggles with. It has been more obviously since he has moved from our hometown.

#11 You are fiery tempered

You are likely quick to anger. There is likely a mix of reasons to this. Your empathy, being strong willed, being a truth seeker, and not conforming to society or authority. Anger issues is something my brother has struggled with all his life. I’ve never really understood why but maybe this is the reason.
