Indigo children

10 Sep

The term refers to children who ostensibly have extraordinary and supernatural abilities. Scientifically it is not proven that those children have any abilities. The term appeared in the 1970s. The idea was developed by Nancy Ann Tappe, Jan Tobber and Lee Carroll. “The Indigo Child is a boy or girl who displays a new and unusual set of psychological attributes, revealing a pattern of behavior generally undocumented before. This pattern has singularly unique factors that call for parents and teachers to change their treatment and upbringing of these kids to assist them in achieving balance and harmony in their lives, and to help them avoid frustration” (Lee Carroll & Jan Tober).

Some parents are sure that their children are indigo. Usually it happens because their children have learning problems. For those parents it is emotionally easier to accept their children as special and unusual individuals. Usually indigo children suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder or Dyslexia.

What are the typical traits of indigo children? Indigo children are smarter and wiser than their peers. They react quickly and pick out things immediately. As the rule indigo children are misunderstood by others. People do not accept them. These children perceive events and thing in a different way. They have great power of intuition. Sometimes they even can predict events in the future. Indigo children as well as their parents are sure that they have special mission in life. Exactly that’s why they are endued with supernatural powers. At the same time indigo children are very sensitive and vulnerable. Probably because others do not understand them. For many people indigo children are strange. Even sometimes their parents do not accept them as adequate. Their way to see things is unique. And finally indigo children have indigo aura that usually is associated with intuition and supernatural abilities.

    I would agree with some of what you have written, but there is really no one size fits all for any “label.” For me, indigo is one of the many ways western thinking people are coming to grips with the idea that people can be intuitive. However, intuition is difficult to grasp through the lens of western beliefs. No “indigo” child or adult I know or have known (and I have been working with intuitive people for several decades) believes s/he can save the world or even has that mission. Rather, because of the expanded picture of humanity, s/he knows each person has an individual path.

    While many intuitive people are diagnosed with personality disorders or even mental health problems, it is simply that the abilities are not in control. Control is something easily learned at a young age and not so easily learned at an older age, but it can be learned. I know these words represent an uphill battle, but I feel it is an important distinction to make.
