Children of a New Time - The Gift of the Indigo Child
with Carolina Hehenkamp
by Susan Barber
Carolina Hehenkamp is doing important work in easing the path of
Europe's Indigo children especially those in Germany. Because of the
cultural differences, the problems that Indigos face in Germany and
other European countries are also in some ways unique. But Carolina's
untiring and compassionate work will speak to the parents of all of
our New Children, wherever they may be.
SB: Carolina, I would like first to ask you how you came to be doing
CH: A few years ago, I was in a seminar with Lee Carroll. It triggered
all my cells. I knew immediately that there was something very
important there for me.
Then I did another Lee Carroll workshop two years ago it was in
August 1999 and I got that I should write a book about the European
children of the new generation. So I took a year off and went to Spain
and wrote this book. Now I'm back near my home, which is Holland, but
I'm living just across the border, in Germany. Because I want to work
with Germany's Indigo children and their families.
This is because there is a different culture in Germany, an old,
traditional family structure that makes it even more difficult in
Germany than elsewhere for these new children.
SB: Can you tell us what these differences are?
CH: In Europe there is often a very specific, traditional way of
growing up that is less free than, for example, in America. This is
especially true in Germany, and that's also my focus, so I will talk
A lot of the women work, but the father is still the authority in the
family. And there is a cultural importance on being normal. For this
reason, the mother feels guilty if she has an Indigo child, guilty
that her child is not normal.
In the cultural view, children should conform. Expectations are more
rigid. There is a big value placed on just doing well behaving well,
being what we think of as average. People will say, Look at that
child, the mother does not control it.
These children come in on a high energy level, a high frequency, and
then they bump into this energy in their families. They feel that
there is a wall.
SB: How do you explain the truth to the German mothers of Indigos?
CH: This is a problem. In America you can talk of a ''new race'' of
children, but you can't do that in Germany. If I'm working with groups
in other countries I can speak about this, but in a group of average
mothers in Germany you can't talk about that.
SB: Is that because of Hitler?
CH: Yes, that's why. So, first of all, I try to tell them that
everything is new, and nothing is new. I say that ''normal evolution''
is going a lot faster than before, raising the energy of the entire
world. The kids themselves are aware of Spirit and dimensions, but
their mothers are dealing with all this emotional stuff. They don't
know about these things.
Then I tell them a lot of stories.
* For example, there was a three-year-old boy in 1982 he's 19
now who was always crying a lot, always looking at one particular
spot in the room up near the ceiling. It turned out that he was seeing
his grandmother his father's mother all the time, and she was a
mean woman. And he had to have Coca-Cola. Then a couple years later,
he said, ''Mommie, everything is going to be fine. And I'm going to be
leaving earth in 2031.'' He still needed the Coca-Cola. So the mother
started doing emotional work to deal with her son.
* One child was always seeing Devas. She would say, ''Look, Momma,
they are everywhere.'' And things were always missing from the house.
Finally, the child told them to put out gifts for the Devas
crystals, rings, cookies and after that everything was fine.
* Another little girl of four or five years was behaving badly (in
her mother's view), so the mother said: ''Don't bother me any more,
stop it, you're just like Grandma.'' And the child giggled and said,
''Now you know why I came back.''
* There was a case of a young boy who had a white rabbit for seven
years. Nobody else could see this rabbit, but the child could see it.
If they were going somewhere in a car and the rabbit had not had a
chance to get in, the child would say, ''Stop the car, you closed the
door before the rabbit came on.'' Then one day they stopped hearing
about the rabbit and asked the child if it were still there. ''No,''
he said, ''it's gone.''
So I tell these stories to the groups of mothers, and it helps them to
understand, because they recognize their own children in them and that
makes them feel better. They are not the only one. Everybody gets a
point of recognition.
SB: How do you think these children can best be helped?
CH: We need to help the family, to change the culture of the family.
This starts with the mother, allowing her not to feel guilty. We tell
her that her child is okay, and that she has a right to know more
about what is happening.
We say that the problem is not that she has failed to ''control'' her
child, as everyone is telling her. The husband says, ''What are you
doing to the child?'' Then the school complains. So the father makes
them go to a doctor, and the doctor makes the mother feel guilty. They
perform an IQ test on the child that shows borderline genius, and now
everbody is really convinced that the behavior they are seeing is
wrong, and that it must be the mother's fault. By the time the mother
gets to our support services, she's had about eight authority figures
telling her that she's doing something wrong, trying to make her feel
That is why my website is free. I want the mother to feel it is her
right to have this information. She needs it, because she has been
criticized by just about everyone.
SB: Do you work also with the children?
CH: Yes. I show them ways to sort things out. Again, they need to
believe that they are okay. And many times they are not going to get
support from their family, so I try to help them be self-supportive. I
use color therapy, AuraSoma (see Introduction to AuraSoma Therapy in
our March issue), Sacred Geometry, and Light I have them see
themselves in a sphere of Golden Light where they are protected.
I use intuition to select an approach that will work for each child.
SB: Do you see particular patterns in the children's behavior?
CH: Yes, this is one of the keys to understanding what is happening.
It seems, at least in my experience, that these children are going to
show us the dysfunctional behavioral patterns of their family. The
children are creating their behavior in order to heal the family.
If the family doesn't ''get it'' and you take away whatever situation
the children have created, they will create something else! They
create whatever is necessary to clear the emotional field and they
create it in the open! It's right there on their nose, not hidden in
I say to the mothers, ''Let them help you.'' The children are like the
dolphins, sending their energy everywhere. They are Silent Healers.
They are pushing their parents in order for the parents' to release
their own emotional blocks. The children will push all the buttons,
they will just do it. If we don't want to learn, they will go to extremes.
SB: How do you feel about the use of Ritalin?
CH: I have the ability to ''see'' energy, and what I ''see'' is that
Ritalin simply kills them. It's like they are dead. Zombis. Cut off
from the Light. They ''function,'' but now they do what everybody
thinks is right. They stop being system busters. They just stop.
Because they are dead. They are not connected to their life purpose
SB: Carolina, we're talking here of Indigos, and also many of us here
know about the Children of AIDS and the SuperPsychics. But I
understand that there's a third type of New Child being described in
Europe. Could you tell us something about this, please?
CH: Yes. They are called the Resilience Children. I think that's
probably the best translation. These children are in very socially
wrecked families and surroundings. Yet they seem not to be touched by
any of it. Like the lotus that blooms in the mud, in the dirt, they
flourish no matter where they are put. They just don't resonate to the
negative emotional stuff.
We don't have so much of this type of environment in Europe, because
we do not have the extreme poverty that is found in America. So there
are not so many of these children there.
SB: I would not be surprised if these children also existed in great
numbers in the United States. Perhaps nobody knows about them because
these kinds of families don't receive help or attention.
Carolina, could you please tell us what you are planning for the future?
CH: My focus is to have support groups for the mothers and families of
the Indigo children in every town in every country. I want to help in
creating support everywhere for families, teachers, doctors...
Most of all, I want to help so that the mothers can be strengthened
and can stop feeling guilty. When all the mothers start talking
together, then we can get out of the negative aspects of the male
energy. We can create the reverse of what Hitler tried to do.
I want everyone to be aware that the New Children are children of a
new time. They are helping us to create a new world.
