Traits of Indigo Children

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and way showers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today.  However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world.  Indigos continued to be born up to about 2000, with increasing abilities and degrees of technological and creative sophistication.

Those adults who resist change and who value conformity may misunderstand the Indigos. They are often mislabeled with psychiatric diagnoses of Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).  Sadly, when they are medicated, the Indigos often lose their beautiful sensitivity, spiritual gifts and warrior energy.  Their intense energy is needed to change the world for the better.  Indigos are unable to conform to dysfunctional situations at home, work, or school.  They don't have the ability to dissociate from their feelings and pretend like everything's okay...unless they are medicated or sedated.

What are the characteristics of an Indigo? 


·        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.

·        They are clairvoyant and can “see” right through dishonesty.


NOTE:  Some children suffer from ADD-like symptoms because of chemicals and dyes added to foods and products geared for children.  Removing these from their diet is a necessity.  Read my article ADHD/ADD: A Wholistic Approach to learn more.
