Indigo people do NOT like being associated with regular folk, especially when they practice meditation and read books written by Deepak Chopra and the like.

To be associated with non-indigo folk is an insult and basically reminds them of how human they really are. This usually applies to the middle class type of new ager, who wish to distance themselves from the great unwashed.

Often Indigo's will hide behind their children, using their 'clever' kids as a wall of defence. They will claim to see aura's yet will NEVER describe the colours of a non-indigo aura (until someone else has written about it in a book and then it becomes common knowledge).

Only indigo's can have children, and they are soooo much more earth-wise and grounded than the great unwashed and those without an indigo aura.

Indigo's are the future of the planet. Yes they might be arrogant, vague and repetitive but they are the future.

Indigo's may very well be the latest saviour of the human race, usually a title given to them by some one claiming to be vastly sprititual and very deserving of praise (due to their hardcore deep breathing sessions in a field) but that does not mean us non-indigo types should question them or challenge them.

Did you know 84% of indigo's have X-ray vision?

It definately isn't a new age fad, that's for sure.

Also forgot to say :

The fact that child counsellors are seeing more and more "special" kids is not because there are more and more.

It is just because some "conditions" such as : ADHD, bipolar, "gifted kids", asperger, autism etc are getting much more attention, and are better known by school teachers and parents. So the more the public is aware of it, the more they go to child counsellors for advices. Perfectly normal.

Since when are there "child counsellors" anyway ? So how could you talk about "increase". 50 years ago if you were a sperger, gifted or having ADHD, what could you do ? Nothing because it was unknown. So it was just "stay on your desk, STFU and listen to the teacher".

An increase ? No, as I said previously, it is just getting more attention.

The name indigo comes from a Roman term indicum.

Indicium = Singular of indicia

Indicia = Identifying marks; indications.
Markings on bulk mailings used as a substitute for stamps or cancellations.

Well my dictionary says :

Indigo : (Portuguese : Indigo / Latin : Indicus;a;um : "Indian/From India") you know like the "other" Indica

It is from Indicum not Indicium.

And indicium means : clue, revelation, denunciation, etc...

Sorry I was in latin class as a kid. Sometimes the urge to do latin comes back.

Actually Indikon was a Greek name for an Indian dye. Possibly the oldest source of the colour Indigo in the world.

Lately it's just become a new age fad.

Yes, google messed up my search, someone must be paying to have indicium pop up instead of indcum on google. Hiding the truth of course.

Child of India.

Hence why I had made the change to never mind.

Good observation though.

I'm sorry but I've never seen any publication from child counsellors suggesting there is an increase of indigo children ; and that 90% of the children from this generation are indigo. Could you please link it to me ?

I worked as a youth movement leader for 5 years and honnestly the kids I met there are no more spiritually inclined or in advance for their age. Quite the contrary. They are overly materialistic and egotic, and are only interested in new technologies (their cellphone/console), Youtube and Facebook.
Some kids were indeed very gifted, in advance for their age, talking more with us than with other kids. But hardly more than a few. And this is perfectly normal and not different than 20 or 50 years ago.

As for the claims of the "indigo professionals", you cannot use this as a proof. It is like asking a "2012 specialist" if the mayan doom is real or asking a BigPharma CEO if drugs are good for you. Biased view...

I'm open to your explanation, but I do not see this myself. 90% indigo kids ? Come on... In my country, kids today are dumber than 20 years ago (because of internet) according to all surveys.

That's the book that I bought for my mother SpaceGoats. It should be what you're asking for.

The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived (Paperback)
by Lee Carroll, Jan Tober

Lee Carroll :

He has published only new-age books and books about indigo children (14 !!!). He also pretend to be channelling message from the angelic entity Kryon

From his site : "These Indigo books introduced the world to the term "Indigo Children" in 2000..." So he's probably one of the guys who launched this fad.

Let's go see deeper who this guy really is.

Along with his "partner" Jan Tober (the second author of your book), he created various "light groups" focusing on the teachings of his channellings with Kryon.

These groups are considered as a sects in many countries : (sorry its in french)
with the main goal of making money through books, conferences, TV shows and groups fees, and also minimizing the gravity of events such as the Heaven's gate mass suicide. (Don't drink the koolaid man

So you are just illustrating what many people here say :

"Indigo children" are a new age fad, designed to make money by selling books and attending conferences.
No child counsellors are speaking about indigo children. Only new-age authors.

What is more interesting and that I didn't knew for sure, is that you gave us a clear link between "specialists of the indigo phenomenon" and sects.

For me it is even more clear know. I hope you will look at this "indigo phenomenon" from another perspective now.

And also never forget to always double check your sources : is the author of my book reliable, serious ? Is he linked to any sect or "exotic" movement ? Is he cited by other serious sources ?

I suggest you have a good talk with the people who read your book to tell them who the author really is. Also if you want to learn more about spirituality and life and new-age topics, I suggest you start with more "accepted" authors.

Personnaly I only know about Castaneda's books but I recommend them to you. You should also be able find many other good suggestions on this site. You could even start a topic on this subject.

Regards and take care.

A last bit of information regarding Lee Carroll and Kryon :

The humorous comment of an amazon user about Lee Carroll's "Kryon" books :

Kryon has violated copyrights !
It is a well known fact among non-corporeal entities that all materials channeled from Kryon are taken verbatim by Kryon from the books of his teacher, Panka Rubeus Jr.

Legal action in the ethereal courts is already in the works, and Panka Rubeus is now taking legal action in Planet Earth courts under advisements.
Published on May 6, 2006 by Tzalmagor

So this guy is not only a sect guru, but also stealing other people's works...

Makes you think.

And also some thinkings about this aura stuffs :

If auras are real, and if I look for the accepted teachings about aura colors and meanings : I will learn that the aura of someone is influencend by the mindset and emotion of the moment.

So we all change our aura color EVERY TIME.

And it is never mentionned that some people keep the same aura color ALL THEIR LIFE !

It seems that the people behind the "indigo children theory" are not in line with the "classical aura theory"... Is it a new branch in aura sciences ?

SpaceGoats, I did not read that book all the way through to see the "New Age" mumbo-jumbo behind it, I was just referring to the counselor part that you had asked for. I mainly bought it for my mother though. Great observation and research of the authors though, taught me a few things.
