Q&A: What is an Indego child, and what are the charecteristics of Indegos?
Question by John Doe: What is an Indego child, and what are the charecteristics of Indegos?
Answer by Chronos
Indigo children is a term used within the New Age movement to refer to children who are alleged to possess paranormal attributes such as the ability to read minds.
The Indigo child concept was first publicized in 1999 by the book The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, written by the husband-and-wife team of Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. Carroll insists that the concept was obtained via conversations with a spiritual entity known as Kryon.
The reason for the use of the adjective “indigo” is not universally agreed upon: some sources link it with an early researcher into the phenomenon, who was synesthetic. It has also been claimed that these children appear with an indigo-hued aura.
The Indigo Child movement believes that the children in question are born with an empathic connection to Earth and others’ thoughts. However, due to natural limits in infant communication, Indigo children’s supposed abilities (empathy, telepathy, extra-sensory perception and extra-normal perception) are often suppressed by negative parental or societal influence. The Indigo Child movement therefore encourages parents to support those children in whom can be seen traits which are often labeled as negative by mainstream authorities but as positive by the Indigo Child.
Carroll and Tober identify ten attributes that they assert describe Indigo children:
* They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it).
* They have a feeling of “deserving to be here,” and are surprised when others do not share that.
* Self-worth is not a big issue; they often tell the parents “who they are.”
* They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).
* They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.
* They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and do not require creative thought.
* They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like “system busters” (non-conforming to any system).
* They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially.
* They will not respond to “guilt” discipline (“Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did”).
* They are not shy in letting it be known what they need.
