Interview: Children of Today


As I mentioned in my recent email newsletter, Randy Sue Collins, local parent, teacher and artist is offering gatherings for parents of the “Children of Today.” (i.e. all high vibrational children labeled Indigo, Crystalline, Rainbow, Autistic, etc.)

I interviewed Randy yesterday about her new project. The first event will be Tuesday Dec 12, 6:30-7:30. More information below.

Describe the “children of today” project.

Many parents are at their wit’s end when it comes to their child’s behavior. They’ve been told by medical professionals, teachers and administrators that there may be something “wrong” with their child and the first thing they prescribe is therapy and/or drugs (like Ritalin). The “Children of Today” project focuses on bringing information based on spiritual principles (not religious!) to the parents, grandparents, and caregivers of high vibrational kids that may have been labeled ADD, ADHD, Autistic, etc. and who don’t “fit in” with today’s traditional systems. I explain what I believe to be true as to their purpose here on Earth at this time and what parents can do to support the children’s growth and well being.

What are the kids like?

Most are hyper sensitive to many influences ranging from food, to clothing, to their enviornments.

Here’s some of the most common traits:

They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it)

They have a feeling of “deserving to be here,” and are surprised when others don’t share that.

Self-worth is not a big issue. They often tell the parents “who they are.”

They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).

They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.

They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and don’t require creative thought. They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like “system busters” (nonconforming to any system).

They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially.

They can be depressed and alone often seeking alcohol and drugs to “feel better”. They will not respond to “guilt” discipline (“Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did”).

They are not shy in letting you know what they need.

All are very psychic whether they admit it or not. They often see and hear things we cannot.

How common are these kids?

They are everywhere all around the world. Almost every child born these days is higher vibration.

How can I tell if my child is one?

Watch them, talk to them, listen to them, you’ll know….

What are the parenting challenges you consistently come across?

The biggest parenting challenge I find is “how to get them to fit in a traditional school system.” Also the sensitivities to foods, clothing, noises, etc. can be a challenge at times. Emotional upsets and with Autistic children, communication, seems to be the biggest challenge.

How can your gathering help with these challenges?

We talk about the reasons for the childrens’ “special ways” and I teach tools to help the parents and the kids to cope with their daily lives. Also having a support group to talk about the same challenges is always helpful. I am also putting together a directory of local healers who understand these children and can help in various ways.

What will the gathering be like?

An hour to an hour and a half depending on questions. At the beginning we’ll do a grounding exercise followed by a short lecture, then Q&A.

Should I bring my child?

YES! The children are very welcome and there will be art supplies available for them to use.

What if not all of my children show these symptoms, what does that mean about the ones that don’t?

Everyone’s an individual on a different path with a different purpose therfore it stands to reason that not all kids will act the same. (no one really acts the same as another anyway). It could be that one child may not be as hyperactive but still has the same high vibration with similar psychic abilites and may not be as open about their “gifts” or as rebellious.

Do you have any websites I can visit to learn more?

There are many beginning with

Happy Holiday Season!


Several times in the last week I have woken to the lovely circumstance of birds offering wonderful sounds outside my window. If I were to ignore the chill in the air, I could pretend that it was spring again! I can’t remember hearing this many birds at this time of year. Their beautiful songs go on all day. It is wonderful.

Another wonderful sound opportunity is coming up. On December 3rd at 5:50 pm in front of City Hall, the Sonoma United Methodist Church Handbell Choir will perform at the Hospice Tree Lighting Ceremony I have been a member of this handbell choir for over six months. I played handbells as young person and was very excited to find out about this choir here in town. If you are interested in joining the handbell choir, there are opportunities for children and adults. You need not be a member of the Methodist Church to play in the choir. Our adult group practices Monday’s from 4:45-6:00pm. Email and I will connect you with the choir leaders.

I recently had the pleasure of watching a video of The Raleigh Ringers. They are an amazing handbell choir from North Carolina. I was captivated. Give yourself a treat and check out the video of them performing Christmas Eve ( Sarajevo 12/24) it is 3 1/2 minutes of WOW!

Be sure to visit the Sonoma Valley Calendar to add your events and learn about what is coming up here in the Valley. It is free to add events and free to browse. Please tell a friend!

Until next time,

Hello and welcome to the Sonoma Valley Calendar Blog!


I have created this blog and its accompaning calendar to fill a void here in the Sonoma Valley.

As a former co-host of Mornings in Sonoma on KSVY 91.3 fm, Sonoma’s community radio station, I found out just how important it is to folks to know about the vibrant events scene in the Valley. I also found out how hard it is to keep track of that scene!

It is free to post and free to add events to the calendar. The only exchange requested is that you spread the word!

The blog will give me the opportunity to interview (video, audio, and written) folks that are producing events and those that are participating in them.

The entire project is just getting started, but I am already receiving event submissions from all over the Valley. Please add yours!

If you need any assistance, email
