As a member of the Spiritual Community the term Indigo Child is one of the most known and used openly. You’ll see it a lot, “Known Indigo Child” or “My child the Indigo baby!” They are celebrated and boosted as a trophy. But in reality- what IS this? What the REAL story?
My issue with the articles floating around is that they don’t really explain much. All it is most of the time is an article listing personality traits and diet habits. I mean really- it’s the same recycled piece over and over. Most of the time is is the same list and format.
If you don’t know where the term comes from then Google: Nancy Ann Tappe. She’s a parapsychology writer. If you’re into this type of literature that’s AWESOME, just bypass the negativity of harsh critics.
Indigo children are also closely related to Crystal Children and Star Children. Often they are all lumped together and treated like they’re the same thing. They’re not. Indigo children are less developed- while they have natural powers and can come into it- they tend to almost never really tap into them fully.
They are also prone to being seen as bratty, self center- though this is partly because they aren’t understood. They are the beginning of a change- thus they are a work in progress. They have a the need for room, the need to be heard and understood, and the need to be respected. Sadly though, because they are a middle ground for change they are not fully ready to: A) accept or understand why B) to be accepted or understood. These were and are the pioneers- the ones to start ASKING for these things.
These types of people are the beginning of no longer keeping negative relationships- this is often seen as selfish due to them often distancing themselves from parents. Conservative ideas tend to not accept this as reasonable: this is seen as being none thankful towards family “”effort””. They see through abusive behaviors that are paraded as good gestures, they know and can sense the true meaning of behaviors.
Indigo children want to break down old structures that are no longer working- thus they are seen as trouble makers too. ‘Don’t fix what isn’t broken,” well, they know it’s broken and isn’t working for everyone. These power structures in our society- they know it’s only fitted to the little and not the majority.
They demand a change and that scares a lot of people.
