"The Indigo's Reality"
of our world is a shifting, evolving, a dynamic energy field. As part of
this ecosystem, humanity is growing, and developing. As the needs of the
whole shift, changes need to be made in the parts that make up that whole.
So it is with the auras. A new colour-Indigo-has emerged, with ski
talents, and physical characteristics significantly different those of the
other colors. At this time, most Indigos are still children or young
adults. I see Indigo children as a new comer invested with new talents and
abilities that will be necessary for our evolution. These children have
unique characteristics for which we can only guess the purpose.
Parents of Indigo children have a special
challenge-how to nurture and cultivate their unique children while at the
same time helping them to exist in the mainstream of contemporary society.
The parents of some of these Indigo children will love and support their
differences. Other Indigos will not be:' lucky.
The significant thing about Indigos is that they
have leadership capabilities unlike those we have heretofore ex experience
They understand what it means to be a fully actualized human being without
having been taught that concept.
The most difficult thing for an Indigo to develop
is patience and forbearance. Because they seem to have already grasped
what it means to be authentic, they have little tolerance for others who
struggle with this issue. Indigos are not without compassion. However,
their form of compassion is to give other human beings time and space
enough to find their ,Own answers, to come to their own resolutions.
APPROACH TO PHYSICAL REALITY
Indigos have a biochemical system that has
differing needs and considerations than other aura colors. Acceptance of
their more sensitive systems pays rich dividends for parents.
Indigos seem to register emotional, physical, and psychological input at
an unusually high frequency, in the same way some audio equipment is
designed to pick up sound waves in the upper ranges. Consequently, their
systems reach overload more quickly. This means that they tire more
easily, can become confused from too much noise or chaos. Like the
Crystals, they have extremely sensitive neural systems. Excessive
excitement or prolonged stimulation can cause them to withdraw into
themselves. Adults misunderstand this behavior as being contrary or
difficult, when it is simply the Indigo child attempting to find emotional
As infants, they are alert from the start. The
most frequent comment from parents of Indigos is that the baby was awake,
wide-eyed, and curious from the moment of birth. These infants do not seem
to have the unfocused eyes of a newborn.
Indigos also seem to require less sleep than
other infants. They nap infrequently, and even then sleep fitfully. This
often Puts a strain on the new mother who expected her baby to sleep for
the first three months. Not so for Indigos. Propping them up on a pillow
when they are lying on their back seems to allow these infants a more
restful sleep. Afternoon naps are usually heavy and deep, as night sleep
is for most of us. These children outgrow their need for naps earlier than
others do. If they do nap in the afternoon, they frequently stay awake
until all hours of the night. They often awaken from night sleep crying or
in an irritable mood, especially if roused too abruptly. 'The result is
physical pain, fright, and dislocation; it is as if they have shifted
gears too quickly. Gently awakening an Indigo by knocking lightly on the
door of the room calling the child's name softly over a period of ten to
thirty minutes in the morning is a gift of love they will repay bright,
happy dispositions all day.
While they love dairy products like ice cream and
cheese, Indigos often have a physical intolerance to cow's milk, causes
upper respiratory congestion, coughs, runny noses and ear infections.
Substituting goat's-milk products will them be more comfortable.
Because of their unusually sensitive systems,
Indigos need an environment that is more placid and quiet than that
required by other children. When subjected to extended periods of
strenuous stimulation, their nervous systems become easily overloaded,
causing them to become irritable and out of sorts. These children are not
spoiled. They simply have different needs. One way to assist them is to
play classical music of the baroque period, which provides a stimulus for
the side of the brain so that the intuitive side is free to Meditation
music by composers such as Steven Halpern, taro, or Vangelis is also
helpful. It allows them to feel more at peace with themselves, able to
adapt to the shifts and changes in their environment more easily and
As infants, Indigos develop at a very rapid rate.
In manuals dexterity and gross motor coordination they will develop than
their peer group during the first two years. As they ponder the problems
of manipulation, it is as if the observer is see the step-by-step thinking
process of the Indigo. It is fascinating to watch them as they discover,
observe, and interact with physical world, sorting and sifting data,
making decisions achieving successes far beyond usual expectations. These
children are very gifted, but in a new and different way. truly want to
understand, not for the sake of enhanced esteem or for the privileges that
come to the gifted child, because of their natural inquisitiveness.
In temperament, Indigos incorporate both male and
male characteristics simultaneously. As a result, post-pubescent cent
Indigos have no attitudes or values about sexual heterosexuality,
homosexuality, or bisexuality. It is all same to them. They go back and
forth various forms of sexual expression. They mate soul-to-soul rather
than body-to-body. Sexuality is not an expression of masculinity or
femininity, but rather the capacity of one human soul to interact with
another soul. Sexual expression is a medium of communication so profound
that sex for the purpose of physical release only is incomprehensible to
an Indigo. They choose their partners carefully, favoring people who
intuitively understand the deep spiritual nature of the sexual exchange of
energy represented by the sex act. Because an Indigo is renewed
spiritually as well as physically by each such experience, they seem to
have lower sex drives, finding that fewer but more fulfilling experiences
are preferable to many casual experiences.
Currently, Indigos find great satisfaction
working with their hands in occupations that require them to pay attention
to the process that is, not intellectually demanding. Many of them have
become artisans, or even repairmen. They are Intelligent, soft-spoken
hardworking and dedicated employees. They take jobs in such industries as
construction, plumbing, and electrical contracting, heating, and
air-conditioning They do well in jobs that allow them flexibility and
freedom-, but incorporate limits and guidelines, such as quality control
or building inspection.
For the future, as new needs and situations
arise, Indigo will move into leadership positions because they have
firsthand knowledge gained from experience in repairing today's
technology. They will know what we need in the future based on, what we
have in the present.
Spirituality as expressed by an Indigo is an
example what it would be like to live without the guilt and fear used by
many religions to intimidate and manipulate. Indigos sense the nature of
their own divinity, that part of themselves that is a reflection of
perfection. Indigos accept their spirituality as a fact of being.
Indigos seem to have been born knowing
everything. The seem to come into this existence with all the information
other times, other places, intact. It is as if they remember where they
have been prior to coming here. This may be 9 result of spiritual
evolution, or it may be an innate characteristic of the Indigo color.
Indigos have a unique relationship with the
Higher Power. Most 'of us consider the Higher Power to be above us; our'
spiritual evolution is a process of reaching and striving to elevate
ourselves through knowledge, spiritual practices, and examination of our
own inner selves. Indigos seem to have an. inner sense of the Higher
Power. To an Indigo, the Higher Power is a daily reality, not a
theological concept. God is. Indigos see our striving after spirituality
as posturing-much, the way Christ saw the Pharisees.
Indigos find it easy to conform to
institutionalized spiritual practices. Even as young children they have a
gift for spiritual pursuits such as meditation, and an appreciation of
ceremonial accoutrements such as incense, medicine rocks, and smudge,",
sticks. They often choose them as playthings. They intuitively'
incorporate reverence and honor into their behavior, handling the
spiritual objects with love and respect. They respond easily and naturally
to prayer and meditation rituals; they seem to love the quiet time as well
as the space. Indigos are spiritually eclectic, able to incorporate many
spiritual traditions, rituals, and symbol systems simultaneously, taking
peace and comfort from each. They are not bound by old traditions, habits,
or. belief systems. These children know that there is an order and a
pattern to the universe that has little to do with the rules and
regulations others make up. They are able to construct a holistic
spirituality within themselves, to build an inner temple capable of
accommodating many divergent belief systems.
Because Indigos are born knowing everything, they
have easy access to the whole spectrum of what is known in the paranormal
or psychic world. Because they know-and know that they know-they are less
willing than others to filter out or deny these alternate realities. Many
of these children sense the technology of the future. To them, our
civilization seems as barbaric and superstitious as King Arthur's court
appeared to the Connecticut Yankee.
