Indigo children are said to share similar traits to one another: high intelligence, challenging to authority or social norms, curious, empathetic and strong willed. Supports of the Indigo child belief claim that Indigo children are frequently mis-diagnosed with A.D.D. or A.D.H.D. frequently and then sedated with drugs to get them back in lock-stop with the environment around them.
If you are dismissive of new-age or alternative spirituality, I would recommend unplugging here…
Indigo children are believed to be the next-level of evolved consciousness for man-kind; it is felt their combination of empathy, curiosity and challenging of the status-quo will gradually move our society to a healthier existence and away from this “Me First” attitude that pervades all the aspects of our lives: business, Wall St, privacy, govt, etc.
While the supporters of the Indigo movement do claim that their children do have extrasensory gifts, they make it clear that they will move society to a better place not through magic telepathic powers a la X-Men, but rather by creating a source of friction to the static environment we live in now that keeps us frozen in place; frozen in the world we have now.
As that friction builds, the ice melts, people get more engaged in the world around them, and we create together the world we will move forward into.
Interestingly enough this isn’t the first time I’ve heard that alternative-types of personalities are the next generation of human-consciousness. If you are familiar with the wonderful (at least I think so) The Teachings of Abraham series, you are already familiar that Abraham says that Autistic people are closer to source and the next-stage of human consciousness. Oddly enough Autism has been on the rise for years:
For years the autism community’s most powerful public-relations weapon has been a striking statistic: an estimated 1 in 150 children have the diagnosis. Now it appears that estimate is actually too small. According to two new studies, the number of kids diagnosed with autism or a related disorder in the U.S. is closer to 1 in 100.
I think Autism, Asbergers and Indigo character-traits seem to fall into similar categories. I am not a doctor, that is just my 10,000-foot observation from meeting a few folks and reading the medical descriptions attributed to those diagnosis.
This analogy of “friction used to melt the ice” in order for our consciousness to move forward is one I first heard from a talk that Ian X Lungold gave on the Mayan calendar and its mapping of human consciousness in Sedona, AZ.
Ian suggests that using the Mayan calendar as a guide to human consciousness, consciousness is broken up into 9 levels, starting from the beginning of man-kind to our move into the final levels of consciousness in 2012, with each level occurring 20x faster than the previous. For example, one level of consciousness may be hundres of thousands of years, and the next would be 20x less than that at a few thousand years and so on.
Ian also suggests that each level of consciousness can be divided up into 13 sub-sections of time. Depending on the level of consciousness, this would represent 100s of years or 100s of days or 100s of hours, etc.
Ian goes on to point out how the 4th and 5th sections of time in each level of consciousness represent major upheavals which cause huge amounts of friction and prepare us for the next stage of our enlightenment. Ian’s 18-part presentation (really broken up into 2 9-part talks that are 90 minutes apiece) maps major events in our known history to this theory with results that I found to be compelling.
I have collected the entire talk (all 18 parts) into a single YouTube playlist so you can watch them easily back-to-back without needing to search for each subsequent part:
I would recommend at least watching the first 2 segments (20 mins total) to see if this is the type of content you would find compelling. I found his interpretation of the Mayan calendar inspiring and liberating of my current guilt and anxiety-ridden thoughts. Consciousness will grow and continue whether we like it or not; regardless of the corruption, injustices or oppression against those efforts, you cannot stop progress.
Testing that, if I looked back at the world today compared to the world of 1,000 years ago, I would have to say that is absolutely the case. Consciousness has progressed and increased much to the chagrin and pain of some who want things to stay the same.
I think the future is bright. Regardless of what political party you subscribe to, what religious beliefs you hold and what end-of-world terms they have couched the future in; I don’t agree with any of that.
We all want good things. We are starting to demand more from our world around us in the form of more responsibility, more integrity, more health and more understanding.
Have you noticed an increasing interest in farmers markets, locally grown foods, organic foods and an increasing interest in spirituality around you?
