Basic characteristics of Indigo children/adults - useful for those who are in the process of waking up and having a spiritual awakening. It's pretty straight forward; either you identify with most of these characteristics or you don't. Little background on the indigo, crystal and rainbow children - the first wave of indogo children were born after the 1950's - the first wave being part of the first movement to shake the foundations of governments and political wars/strife - the 1960's. Second wave came about in the late 70's but mainly the 80's - and the last wave being in the early 2000. According to native indian and psychic revelations - the indigo souls are not of earth origin - meaning they chose to reincarnate to help raise the vibrations of earth and help facilitate change on earth. Started after the first atomic bomb was dropped; sending out a message to the galaxies that earth is indeed going down a path of annhilation. Indigo's hold a more attuned vibrations compared to a regular earth soul. There are many resources available now that explain where the true rigins of the indigos are from - do research and you will find out. Here are just the basics on understanding an indigo and from my experience INFJs, INFPs, INTPs, INTJs expose indigo characteristics - not sure if the traits are more for introverts. NOTE: IF YOU ARE NOT ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY OR IN THE PROCESS OF WAKING UP - THIS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. Characteristics: * Are intelligent, though may not have had top grades. * Are very creative and enjoy making things. * Always need to know WHY, especially why they are being asked to do something. * Had disgust and perhaps loathing for much of the required and repetitious work in school. * Were rebellious in school in that they refused to do homework and rejected authority of teachers, OR seriously wanted to rebel, but didn’t DARE, usually due to parental pressure. * May have experienced early existential depression and feelings of helplessness. These may have ranged from sadness to utter despair. Suicidal feelings while still in high school or younger are not uncommon in the Indigo Adult. * Have difficulty in service-oriented jobs. Indigos resist authority and caste system of employment. * Prefer leadership positions or working alone to team positions. * Have deep empathy for others, yet an intolerance of stupidity. * May be extremely emotionally sensitive including crying at the drop of a hat (no shielding) Or may be the opposite and show no expression of emotion (full shielding). * May have trouble with RAGE. * Have trouble with systems they consider broken or ineffective, ie. political, educational, medical, and legal. * Alienation from or anger with politics – feeling your voice won’t count and/or that the outcome really doesn’t matter. * Frustration with or rejection of the traditional American dream – 9-5 career, marriage, 2.5 children, house with white picket fence, etc. * Anger at rights being taken away, fear and/or fury at “Big Brother watching you.” * Have a burning desire to do something to change and improve the world. May be stymied what to do. May have trouble identifying their path. * Have psychic or spiritual interest appear fairly young – in or before teen years. * Had few if any Indigo role models. Having had some doesn’t mean you’re not an indigo, though. * Have strong intuition. * Random behavior pattern or mind style – (symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder). May have trouble focusing on assigned tasks, may jump around in conversations. * Have had psychic experiences, such as premonitions, seeing angels or ghosts, out of body experiences, hearing voices. * May be electrically sensitive such as watches not working and street lights going out as you move under them, electrical equipment malfunctioning and lights blowing out. * May have awareness of other dimensions and parallel realities. * Sexually are very expressive and inventive OR may reject sexuality in boredom or with intention of achieving higher spiritual connection. May explore alternative types of sexuality. * Seek meaning to their life and understanding about the world May seek this through religion or spirituality, spiritual groups and books, self-help groups and books. * When they find balance they may become very strong, healthy, happy individuals. Please note, anyone could have a few of these traits, but Indigo Adults have most or all of these 25 characteristics. Those who are creating worldwide change, revolutions, computer hackings, expose on hidden government activities, environmental activism, mystics , natural and energy healers, modern medicine men/women- all are the INdigo energies that are helping to shift earth's vibrations. It is working on smaller clusters and we still have a long time to go to see a major shift. On the spiritual plane; post 2012 - people are given a chance to raise their vibrations by waking up to their spiritual essence, living an organic and earth centered lifestyle, to give more than take and focusing on healing. Those who are waking up are choosing to raise their vibrations to match the new frequency and those who wishes to stay behind with all that was is splitting into two spiritual planes on earth. Time is speeding up due to the earth's increase in vibrational frequency and people can voluntarily choose to move higher in consciousness or not. Indigo's are leading the way.
