What is an Indigo Child?
As a summary, here are the ten attributes that best describe this new kind of child, the Indigo Child
- 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 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.
Don’t think I have ever blogged about this, although I believe in it and have found it’s variations all over the place. Interestingly enough, in the Mormon tradition, they talk about special souls being saved to come to earth at the end of time to save it. And indigenous peoples tell of spiritual warriors in the end of days.
I believe that is now and I believe we are here. Some of us came earlier as scouts, perhaps, wondering why we never fit in, why we didn’t believe what we were taught by those in authority. We kept to ourselves. We attempted to fit in. It didn’t fit and we burst out one way or another. Some of us blaze distinct trails for others to follow. Some of us yearn for the hills, anywhere we aren’t.
We are fearless when focused. We love without depth. We are drawn to our own kind, no matter the skin color, ideology, look, smell, feel, we are just drawn.
It wasn’t until I gave birth to a generation of Indigo Kids that I started to feel connected. We come with inexplicable gifts of healing and enlightenment. We build, create and set free. We share at our expense until wisdom sets in. We attach regardless of whether or not it is returned. We crave peace above all things… serenity within… ever illusive until it is ours. We have life purpose and distinct paths and the journey is the joy. When we feel loved our souls soar.
The sheer delight when we connect with each other is beyond words! Namaste’
