I admit that I got involved with some New Age people a few years ago and they encouraged the idea that I was an Indigo Child. I do feel as though a
lot of the descriptors of IC are accurate for me, but then again they are probably accurate for a lot of people as others have noted.
Straight up I have to say that the whole Blonde Haired, Blue Eyes thing is crap - no way would any "spiritual enlightenment" (or whatever you want
to call it) discriminate between ethnic background. I have brown hair and eyes for the record.
Also, Hyper-activity being a pre-requisite is BS IMO. These supposed illnesses are over-diagnosed, but I think that is more a symptom of bandaid
approaches to medicine and medical companies making massive profits. The actual cause is a boredom with the school environment, which while not unique
to IC is supposedly more pronounced. Personally I did feel that school was mostly a waste of time, but I just chose to conform while hating it (like
most other people in one way or another). It helped that I was bright and so did well with the school work.
I have had strange thoughts as some of the original posters described - for example I entertained the idea for a while when I was around 7-10 that my
parents were actually aliens who changed forms and languages whenever I could see or hear them. Its the kind of paranoid thought that can get out of
hand if you don't balance it with reason - i.e. there's no way you can prove or disprove that so its not worth investing energy into.
That said I have always felt like I don't belong or that I'm just not like other people. From a young age I believed that we all "should" be able
to fly and just create objects whenever we needed them and de-create them when we were finished. I've felt a deep impatience with actually having to
DO things - which is why I am lazy and posting on an internet forum
I often put a lot of energy into thinking about projects and then never
actually complete them because on some level I just want them to materialise without putting effort into it.
All of these things - as noted by some other posters - could just be due to escapist fantasies and also my very introspective/introverted personality
combined with fears and inadequacies about putting myself out there in the world due to conflicts I've encountered because of my personality in my
At the end of the day, the Indigo Children idea is just like my parents being aliens - I can't prove it either way which means it only limits me -
its a label like any other. Its also a dangerous ego trap, which other people have commented on.
IF it is true, however - and I do still entertain the idea now and then - the point is not that the Indigo Children are somehow superior to everyone
else, its just that they are more "resistant" to being indoctrinated into the culture. They "remember" if you will the natural state of the human
being and are reminders to everyone else how THEY ARE naturally too.
Again, if it were true (and its linked a lot into 2012 obviously) then all other humans, who aren't IC will also be able to return to this more
natural state of being, or perhaps also "ascend into the 5th dimension".
Sorry for the long post but thanks for reading.
P.S. The idea of the 5th dimension is also one that I feel connected to. I do think on a really large scale, both physically and in terms of time, and
I also believe in "As above, so below" i.e. A Holographic universe. I see 5th dimensional reality as transcending space and time, concievably
meaning you could go anywhere at any time Dr. Who style, which would be pretty awesome. But I doubt my intuition, so it is also possible that
Economics is the one true religion and that I should just knuckle under and work harder to earn more money, buy a house and start a family.
