Under cover, tonight I joined several hundred others to squeeze into a spacious Unity Church in Boulder for the much-publicized premiere screening of "Indigo," the latest release in the genre of independent "spiritual" films to be promoted through grassroots support (a la "What the Bleep Do We Know?").
Singer-songwriter-emissary-scriptwriter James Twyman has teamed up with director Stephen Simon (producer of "What Dreams May Come") and Conversations with God author Neale Donald Walsch to roll out the welcome mat for "a new generation of psychic and gifted 'Indigo' children" and (not coincidentally) to publicize their Spiritual Film Circle.
This low-budget feature has all the appearance of a made-for-TV feel-good film (think "Hallmark Hall of Fame"). The acting is unconvincing (Walsch is the main character), the make-up is a little tacky, the dialogue is frequently awkward, the kid is miscast, and the flashback transitions are surprisingly amateurish. Overall, I'd give this film maybe two stars (out of five). Nevertheless, the audience seemed to love this movie (it's Boulder, after all).
However, I was astonished when, as the credits rolled, people simply got up and left. I was certain that there would be some sort of discussion after the show (which was advertised), as if this was an event worth talking about. In fact, I was looking forward to hearing people's reactions. But no, people just left. Maybe they had been pleasantly entertained, had their hearts warmed, and that's all there was to it. Maybe it's just life in the spiritual suburbs…
In a 15-minute pre-film warmup, Twyman, Simon and Walsch discuss the reasons for developing this movie. For them, it's apparently all about making us humans "feel a little bit better about ourselves." Yes, you read that right. The film demonstrates "We're not so bad," Simon proclaims.
The Extraterrestrial Connection
But just who are the Indigo children? The film's press release refers to Lee Carroll and Jan Tober (authors of The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, Hay House 1999) as "internationally known experts on Indigo children" (actually, Carroll is better known as the channel for an entity known as Kyron), who blandly describe Indigos as "children who display a new and unusual set of psychological attributes" (see more here). [Note: Kyron, incredibly, encourages people to pray to be able to receive special implants that will enhance their healing/transformation/enlightenment process.]
But there's much more going on behind the scenes. Here's the quick intel rundown:
Neale Donald Walsch is possibly the biggest-selling new age author of the last 20 years, driving tiny Hampton Roads to an unprecedented level of success. Walsch's presence in the "consciousness raising" movement is ubiquitous, the influence of his books and tapes is enormous.
Given the quantity of "friendly-ET" material that HR has put out into the world in the last five years or so, it could be said that they are the Collectives' favorite publisher.
Walsch has conspicuously endorsed another Hampton Roads offering, Lisette Larkins' Talking to Extraterrestrials: Communicating with Enlightened Beings, where he writes, "Whether or not we are being communicated with from outer space is no longer the question. That question has been answered long ago. The current question is, what are we being told? What wisdom are we being given? What assistance are we being provided? What insight are we being offered and what answers are we being supplied?" Larkins' ETs have the answers, he says. (Who is the "God" that Walsch has been in conversation with? Could this be an extraterrestrial force, rather than spiritual? Would he be able to discern the difference? Would we?)
Indigos are aging (now considered to be from age 8-26), and may represent only the first wave of hybrids. Other researchers have pointed to children who exhibit even more advanced psychic skills without the Indigos' usual emotional problems. These second-wave "Crystal Children" are now generally ages 0-8, and are much more striking in appearance and demeanor (see Doreen Virtue's frequently-quoted article). Indigos are generally described as merely "psychic," while Crystals are usually referred to as "telepathic."
An entire cottage industry has grown up around the care and feeding of Indigos and Crystals (and the support of their baffled and often stressed-out parents). Just do a Google search on "Crystal Children" and note the sponsored links; my favorite is HolisticMunchkins.com.
Some alternative schools are apparently beginning to cater specifically to Indigos. The film's press release states, "Many schools throughout the world such as the Waldorf, Montessori and Rainbow Kids Integral School (founded in September, 2002 in the Miramar area of San Diego, California) are now developing curriculum to cater towards the special gifts of these Indigo Children." While this may be somewhat of an exaggeration, it is true that parents are recommending Waldorf Schools as a good place for Indigos.
A variety of intel reports indicate it is highly likely that many of the Indigo and Crystal Children are human-ET hybrids in the process of being groomed for leadership roles in our society (as Collective loyalists). Twyman, Walsch and Simon will never mention this possibility, of course.
Richard Boylan is the most outspoken advocate of the idea that these unusual children have an extraterrestrial connection, although the makers of "Indigo" would probably never endorse his work. Boylan focuses on Star Kids, who he defines as children of "non-ordinary heritage" who are "the offspring of 'experiencers'—those who have been taken or influenced in some way by extraterrestrials." These children have received "a further upgrade in human genetics" from the "Star Visitors," says Boylan, and he claims that such Star Kids "have a unique and crucial role to play in our world" (see "Star Kids: Our Future Hope" for more).
Descriptions of the Star Kids and the Indigo/Crystal children are closely aligned. There is much to suggest that we are looking at a single phenomenon here.
Boylan further defines a Star Kid "a child with both human and extraterrestrial origin; the extraterrestrial contribution may come from reproductive material, from genetic engineering, from biomedical technology, and from telepathic consciousness linking, as well as from direct incarnation of a Star Visitor into a human body." The plot thickens…
Soon Boylan will be publishing his book on this subject (Star Kids: The Emerging Cosmic Generation, Blue Star Productions, Spring 2005). He has already launched a ten-year strategic plan that includes "multiple Star Kids Workshops across the United States and in strategic regions of Canada, Europe, Mexico, and Turkey," plus "establishing a Star Kids residential school, a mentor program, and a graduate curriculum, as well as training for faculty."
Why is Boylan so dedicated to Star Kids? "They are the future," he says. "If I can help as many as possible get properly launched, it will greatly benefit the societies that they're going to help shape as they come of age. Many of these special kids are now only a couple of years away from adult lives and careers that will include positions of great responsibility and increasing influence.
We can reasonably conclude that it is highly likely that "Indigo: The Movie"—along with the work of Walsch, Twyman and Simon—is part of an overarching strategy to welcome, support and integrate ET-human hybrids into our society.
This is precisely what abduction researchers like David Jacobs, Budd Hopkins and others have been predicting would be the result of what appears to be an aggressive alien hybridization program. In The Allies of Humanity, Marshall Summers has outlined the far-reaching purpose of this effort. Accordingly, "Indigo" can be seen as confirmation that this hybridization program is well under way, the long-range goal of which is nothing less than the installation of a new leadership over humanity under the firm but invisible and unacknowledged control of the extraterrestrial Collectives.
"In my research (described in The Threat) abductees have indicated to me that aliens and hybrids plan a possible integration or colonization of human society... I think that the problem of the 21st century will be the problem of the alien presence. This, above all, will define and drive human society and activity. I reported that abductees felt that the aliens will begin their integration program into the society within the next forty years. I still think that this is the case."—David Jacobs
