Indigo Children (and Adults)
Indigo is a color which was named and defined by Isaac Newton, and the color falls between blue and violet. It is reported that due to its frequency, even people with good eyesight may have trouble distinguishing it from either color.
The term "indigo" as it relates to psychic children refers to the (Life) color of the aura that purportedly emanates around these youths. Many reports will say that indigo children were born in larger proportions since 1987. But we know that there have always been Indigo people, but in lesser proportions. So those Indigo children who are now adults, probably had the most difficult time of all, because there were few others that they could identify with; or few adults, teachers, and others who understood them or knew how to meet their needs or accommodate them.
Indigo children can often have difficulty in conforming to systems and disciplines which our society deems "normal." They are extremely sensitve (or fragile), highly talented or gifted; and some are even metaphysically inclined. All Indigo children seem to be wise beyond their years. They have spiritual intelligence or psychic abilities.They are talented daydreamers and visionaries. Many will describe them as being born as "old souls." They have also been described as having an inner truth detector. These children are particularly empathic and compassionate and will go out of their way to help someone who is hurting.
Too many indigo children are misdiagnosed as ADHD or autistic. The majority of these children have acute diet and food sensitivities--especially to processed foods and food additives. Indigo children who are constantly prescribed medication (for such disorders as ADHD) lose their abilities. Other indigo children who have no support or are around people who can not communicate with them or help them to cultivate their abilities may also become dull or lose their ability. Some kids are riduculed and like other gifted kids, will suppress their abilities.
Parents and teachers may suffer difficulties with these children because of their highly refined sensitivities and emotional complexities which make them frustrated due to the average person's lack of understanding and knowledge of their reality. Indigo children need parents and adults to help them know they are OK. Likewise, Indigo adults need the same -especially for those in the workplace. They also need the freedom to be creative and unmanaged.
These Indigo children appear to be able to consciously link and communicate somewhat on an energetic "telepathic grid." They apparently have also taken on the responsibility of assisting the rest of humanity in reaching the same level of love awareness they themselves seem to feel.
Below are some selected links that will tell you more about Indigo people. Last year, there was a world premeire movie released on Indigo Children. Perhaps we will review and discuss the movie in class.
According to the makers of the new movie "Indigo," if nothing else, the evolution of the world could benefit from a shift to encompass the acceptance Indigo people seem to share.
