As the mother of two intuitive children — 13-year-old Paige and 11-year-old Steven — Miller has struggled to understand them, like many moms have with their kids. Her workshop is designed to give parents insight on how to respond with children who act very differently than older generations of people, by being very defiant against authority, by being integrally connected to nature, by being sensitive with the food they eat and the clothing they wear.

She will provide parents tools on how to relate with what their kids are going through and offer tricks to assist their kids for their journey into young adults.

Her Edge Life Expo Workshop takes place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center, Minn., and her “Live Audience Reading” is from 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6 at the expo. Speaker tickets include admission to Expo Hall and free workshop that day. Discounted tickets are now available at, click on Minneapolis Holistic Expo Tickets & Speakers.

Kelli Miller spoke with The Edge by phone from her office in Elkhorn, Nebr., about the special children growing up now on planet Earth, and about her talks at the Minneapolis Holistic Expo.

Your workshop on Saturday evening in Minnesota is for parents with intuitive or psychic kids. We have heard of children being called Indigo, Rainbow, and Crystal related to special abilities. What do these names mean and are they significant?
Kelli Miller: They are. The first new wave of children that came in were the Indigo children. I consider myself an Indigo. I am an Indigo warrior, and Indigo children are not easy to raise because they are extremely strong-willed and they always ask “why?” They do not like to be told what to do. They are here to change the world through truth and integrity.

We also have the Crystalline type of children, and to me these are the really sensitive ones. They are highly empathic. Their eyes are usually very large, and they are the feelers and the humanitarians of the world. Indigos are here to destroy old systems, and these Crystalline children are here to rebuild it.

The Rainbow kids are under the age of 6 right now. Most Rainbow children are like the world’s peace-loving hippies. They are all about love, and because they love to wear bright colors, we call them the Rainbow kids. They are attracted to bright colors, and they are very particular with what they eat. Crystalline kids are, too, but the Rainbow kids are against eating meat. They only want to eat fruits and vegetables, and let’s not kill that cricket.

Many of the Rainbow kids, I’m noticing, have not had past lives on Earth. They are brand new souls coming in, so they are really interesting to me because they have me read like the back of my hand before I even meet them. They’re really wonderful children. But, there are definite roles for each type of child and what they’re here to do for society.

Are these kids particularly psychic?
KM: Kids today are retaining their psychic abilities. When we were kids, we were told, “Oh, you don’t see that. You don’t hear that. That’s not real.” Well, what’s happening now is that, as adults, we are now beginning to go through that spiritual awakening. We are reawakening to what we switched off earlier. But these kids under the age of 15 are not shutting off their abilities.

As Indigos, we need to rock the boat because we need to make the world better for them. The school systems and the government systems and the health care systems are not functional systems anymore for these types of people. We need to make it better because these institutions don’t work anymore.

What is society and our culture doing wrong, in terms of making life easier for these children?
KM: It doesn’t help that there is nothing enlightening or positive on TV or the media right now. There really isn’t a lot that we can offer those children, other than good old Mother Nature. Not all parents believe these children, but more and more, these children are coming in to parents who are either going through an awakening or who are already naturally intuitive themselves.

What are the key difficulties that parents face raising these intuitive children?
KM: Depending on the kid, a lot of times it is sleep. These children have horrible sleep patterns, and they don’t like to sleep by themselves. They really want to sleep with somebody else because they’re highly intuitive. When they go to bed at night they, certain kids have to do a certain routine before they go to sleep, and then they don’t sleep worth a crap and then they end up waking up at 3 in the morning and go into their parents’ room saying, “So and so is in my closet,” or, “There are monkeys going on my ceiling.” Sleep, honestly, is the hardest time for those kids.

These kids are just picky and they are hypersensitive. My son, for instance, only wears Under Amour clothing — not because he is a jock and likes to show off but because the material is comfortable for him. They also are sensitive to food. It is not the flavor, but the texture.

Parents need to stop feeding their kids human-made crap. They really have to watch their kids’ diets because they’re developing allergies. Many of the Crystalline kids have major allergy issues: allergic to pollen, allergic to milk, and allergic to many other things. It’s because they’re more sensitive. They vibrate higher than we do. As parents, we have to do a better job taking care of them, because the way we were raised is not going to work for those kids. We have to learn how to do things a different way.

What was your personal experience with your children? What did they teach you as young children in regards to how you’re parenting them?
KM: I have a highly empathic mother, but I am not an empath. I’m an Indigo. And, it was hard because my daughter would always question why, and I felt like I constantly had to explain things to her. But then, I realized, my gosh, I was the same way. Once day I found myself saying, “You need to put on your shoes, because we are going to the grocery store,” I didn’t have a fight or an argument anymore. She taught me how to talk to myself.

My son is such a sweetheart. He is like, “Here, mom, let’s not kill the flies. Let’s open up the door so we can let them out.” Every little thing matters to him. If it’s a fly, it’s still God’s creature. It’s still a living thing. So he is teaching me that just because it’s a fly, and it is annoying me, it doesn’t mean that I should kill it. Just open up the window and it will go outside by itself. He is teaching me patience.

Paige taught me patience, but she is a little bit more similar to me. She is part Indigo and part Crystalline kid. Steven is part Crystalline and part Rainbow. They have their feet in both types of children, and I’m noticing that a lot of these kids do.

What special challenges will these children have as they get older? Do you have a sense of that?
KM: I really think that within the next 10 years there is going to be massive change, and as long as we are raising them to understand who they are, I think they are going to be able to breeze through it pretty quickly. I just don’t want them to worry about being fearful when it comes to change.

The biggest thing that I tell parents is that change is necessary and it has to occur. Everybody is becoming awakened because we’re all going to be supporting each other with the change that needs to occur. I don’t think our kids are really going to be too challenged. The key is getting out of these archaic times and getting into better ones.

I wonder whether these highly intuitive and empathic kids who don’t seem to fit into our culture are choosing to leave by suicide and overdose right now.
KM: Absolutely. I am dealing with highly, highly intuitive or empathic children between the ages of 15 and 21 who have families forcing them to go to college and they don’t want to go, because that’s not what they’re here to do. So instead, they’re choosing drugs and alcohol to cope or deal with the 3D reality that is around them — while they’re vibrating at a 5D reality.

I really have to teach these kids, at the very least, to appease everybody, to finish high school. But they’re just saying, “Why do I have to take an algebra class when I will never use it in my entire life?”

“And you’re right,” I tell them. They are right. I cannot disagree with them. But I also tell them, “You still live in a 3D reality where it requires you to get a degree. So finish the job. Get it done. And once you get it done, you are a free bird. You can do whatever you want.” I also have to explain to them life is not easy. It’s not going to be. So, you’re going to have to work for things and do things sometimes that maybe you don’t want to, but right now this is the reality of it. Take it or leave it.

Some of them can’t handle it. They just can’t. There is a lot of suicide right now because they know at a soul level if they die, it’s a hell of a lot easier than what they’re going through in life. How can you argue with that? The near future is really going to be very difficult for a lot of people.

You brought up an interesting point in your blog on the subject of intuitive children and gender confusion. I think it might be interesting for you to elaborate on that.
KM: Yes. I am noticing that in lot of Indigos, especially between the ages of 16 and 22. They really don’t know if they’re gay, straight, or bi, and I just tell them, “You know what? You don’t have to decide.” The problem with it is that they don’t know who they are — they just know that they love to love. That love is genderless, and they know that at a soul level.

It becomes really confusing when they mature, with hormones flushing everything out. That’s really difficult because they would love their best friend as they would a boyfriend or a girlfriend, and it gets very confusing to figure out what is what, because love is love is love to them. It’s gender neutral. That’s really common for those types of kids, and thank God in our society it is now acceptable.

I always tell them, “You know what? You be who you want to be for right now. When that frontal lobe of yours finishes growing, which is usually about the age of 22 or 23, you’ll have a better idea of where you are, whether that’s gay, straight, or bi. Wherever you land, it’s fine.” They know that it’s fine, but they just want to know what they are. They have to figure that out for themselves. So I tell them, “Figure it out. If you want to date girls, date girls. If you want to date boys, date boys. Date them both. It doesn’t matter. You’ll figure it out.”

What I find great about young kids today is that they are very open toward people of all sexual orientations — and races, as well.
KM: Absolutely. They see through gender, and they see through race. They look at people for who they are, not what they look like. They really feel the person. So if they feel like they don’t like you, they’re not judging you, they’re feeling your energy. They’re the least judgmental people and they’re very anti-bully. They’ll help out the underdog.

What inspired you to create this workshop and what key message do you want to leave with participants?
KM: I’m doing this because I learned a lot from my children, and I’m also helping so many other parents to understand their children, too. These kids are coming and they’re growing in a way that parents don’t understand. I used to be that intuitive child, and if I can explain to the parents what that child is experiencing and why they act or react the way that they do, then I’m doing my job. I want to be able to speak for the child and have the parent understand why they’re doing it.

I also want to give parents some tools they can use to help their own children. For instance, when it comes to kids who astral travel or who are having nightmares, especially between 3 and 5 years old, I am telling parents, “Get their bed out of the corner. No corners.” And to help, put some black rocks in between their box springs and their mattress to ground them so they’re not astral traveling to places they don’t need to go.

So many parents are now becoming enlightened and awakened, and want nothing but the best for their children — but they also don’t understand their kids. It’s my job to be a go-between for the child and the parent.

What I am finding is that a parent is going to have one Indigo kid, one Crystalline kid, and one Rainbow kid. They’re not going to have two of the same. They’re going to have polar opposites. When children come into this world and choose their parents, they’re also choosing their brothers and sisters, and they’re going to choose a brother or sister who is polar opposite of them. That makes it easier for them to define who they are themselves.

That’s why you’re always going to choose a sibling who is opposite you. That’s why twins are always opposite. If you have identical twins, one will be the Indigo — “don’t tell me what to do” — and the other one is going to be the empathic, Crystalline kid.

With regard to kids and their problems sleeping, do pets help, if they have a dog or a cat sleeping with them?
KM: Believe it or not, they do. What is odd is that my cat will always sleep with Paige. She kicks, squirms, and yells sometimes at night, but that cat is always around her. I know that cats were around in Egyptian times to protect, especially from subconscious stuff. For whatever reason, cats are really important. And Crystalline children ADORE animals.

At the Minneapolis Holistic Expo you also will be presenting a live audience reading again on Sunday. What was that experience like for you before and what can participants expect to experience there this year?
KM: I do live audience readings all over the Midwest, so those are really common. I do them a lot, and I absolutely love them because I, we bring through an awakening. It’s great to be able to relay messages from spirit guides who step forward and help me out with what’s going on in someone’s life, and also from loved ones who have passed who step forward to assist their family members.

For instance, I point somebody out and say, “Okay, your mom is standing right next to you.” Not only do they get validation that their mother is there, but they also get the validation that their spirit guides are there with them, too — so they don’t feel like they’re going about this stuff alone. It’s powerfully supportive to know that you’re not alone. Even if someone who attends doesn’t get a reading, I guarantee you that there are a lot of parallel messages that help other people. I’ll be talking to somebody about their father and, it never fails, somebody had a father who was very similar to that one and they receive support just the same. I love doing audience readings. Those are my favorite, that and teaching. I like to teach.

Finally, your book, Memos from Heaven is being released soon. Tell us what inspired that book and tell us a little bit about it.
KM: It’s funny, because when I tell people I’m a medium, the first thing people will ask is, “So, do you have any good stories.” They don’t want to hear a bad story, they want to hear the good stories. So, once I started sharing these amazing stories, it lit people up and they were so excited to see not only that I had ability, but that their loved one still was guiding them from the other side.

I decided to write a book about some of the more amazing stories that I’ve encountered — through individual readings I’ve done or live audience readings. It was published and available on September 18, and I’ll be bringing that book with me when I come to Minneapolis.

These are just really good stories about messages that I’ve relayed. A lot of these messages are life lessons, like don’t do what I did, don’t sit there and work your butt off to get to retirement and die and not enjoy life. It’s a really good guide containing lessons about life.
