The Indigo Children

The Indigo Children Stefanie Miller

Since the concept of the Indigo child became well known, many parents, teenagers, and young adults have been able to really identify with the traits and characteristics. While no one wants to label anyone, especially children, those who resonate with this concept have a deeper understanding, feel less alone and more empowered, and have a sense of comfort in not feeling as alienated and misunderstood.

The term Indigo child was attributed to the color related to the third-eye chakra, which is the predominant color of the children's aura. The third eye is associated with intuition, spiritual insight, and enlightenment. Many Indigo children are gifted with being very intuitive, highly perceptive, and spiritually awakened from a very early age. They can also be highly empathic and easily pick up on what others are thinking and feeling. Until they learn how to shield themselves, they will have a tendency to absorb and take on the energies that are around them. Many of these children are able to see angels and spirits and look beyond the veil of usual human perception, thus many have disturbed sleep patterns.

Indigos Don't Conform

Indigo children are often referred to as "wise beyond their years" or "old souls." From a very young age, they start communicating at an advanced level and amaze others with their insight and knowledge. This has nothing to do with IQ levels or intelligence; they just have a natural awareness and acute perception. In fact, many Indigo children are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, dyslexia, Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and similar conditions of this nature. They tend to learn in their own unique style and have a difficult time being expected to conform to societies' rigid standards. They require a variety of teaching methods to accommodate their unique learning styles that will assist them in comprehension and retention, since processing information takes place in a variety of ways.
