it appears that the easiest way to tell an "Indigo Child" is by the poorly-applied soft focus effect on all of the photos of said child.



Although I will say that I have several photos of DS(3) where he has a whitish light around him and no one in the picture with him has the same light. And he does have a special connection with animals. We were at the seaside aquarium feeding the sealions and one of the newborn pups came over to Grayson and just sat there while they stared at each other. Until the pup mom barked at him to get back to her...lol It was so cool... He also has squirrels follow him through the park and sit by him on benches and such. But other than calling him our pet magnet that is about the only label tht he gets.

That all being said... I am not into the whole indigo child thing... He is an awesome kid and so are my other children they all have unique talents and gifts... So I think that it is a bunch of hooey and some of the traits listed we cause me to give the label of BRAT not something as lovely sounding as indigo.

a) "cool, he's an indigo child!"
b) "he's willful; you need to paddle him," or
c) "he's clearly behaviorally disordered; you need to send him to cure camp, stat!"

I'll take the indigo option as the best available labeling.


Yeah, but a, b and c aren't the only options.

New age hooey!!!

I totally believe that all different kids have all different strengths, weaknesses, sensitivity, intuition, etc. But making it into this new age spiritual mumbo jumbo is taking it a wee bit far IMO. I mean seriously. That checklist would qualify almost everyone at some point. And that photo description BSD linked to- :

Do you think graniness counts? I've been having the strangest issue with graniness since my son has been born.

























I really do have a strange issue with graniness though.

I want to know why they stopped at indigo?

why aren't sporty kids who have troble sitting still and prefer to be outside "Azure children", and shy kids who have elaborate fantasy doll games and read a lot can be "Turquoise children", and annoying whiny ones can be "Cerise children", and super focused gifted kids can be "Magenta children".

Supposedly there are also crystal children and rainbow children but I was never able to clear up the distinction between those and indigo.

First of all, I am so saddened that a spiritual belief can be referred to as "hooey". Why the intolerance? Just because you (general you) don't believe it to be true, why speak of it as "hooey" and offend those that do?

For what it's worth, I do believe in the idea of Indigo and Crystal children. I believe that I am an Indigo as is my middle son. To me, it is one facet of who we are ... in my opinion and belief, there are many aspects to each of us. To me, our spirituality is just one of them. From a spiritual pov, the concept of Indigo and Crystal makes sense. It resonates with me. It might not resonate at all with you. But please do not speak so harshly against someone's belief system.

For my son and I, we both deal with sensory integration issues. My son is also diagnosed as Childhood Apraxia of Speech. He also is an insanely sensitive child emotionally as am I. The idea of Indigo and Crystal children gives me some spiritual "answers" so to speak of who we are. There are also physical, biochemical, and emotional reasons. As I said, there are many aspects to who we are. Just because I believe we are Indigo children does not mean that I let my child run around uncontrolled, allow his tantrums to overtake the family, or give in to his every demand. But it gives us some spiritual understanding into who we are. I wouldn't allow my son to run rampant, destroy things, tantrum his way through life, or any other "undesirable" behavior because of a diagnosis of SID or CAS. But those are ways also to gain more understanding into who he is and what makes him tick.

Please, though, tread with more respect than what I've seen thus far in this thread. It is very disheartening, just as it must be for Christians to see yet another "Does XYZ about Christianity bug you too?" thread. What you describe as hooey is a legitimate belief for others.

I believe it refers to the color of the third chakra, but I could certainly be wrong.

I'm thinking indigo children have a congenital heart disease, rainbow children belong to a gay family, and crystal children were conceived using some kind of Wiccan ritual.

(My midwives called Aurora "the rainbow baby" because of her middle name and the fact that in her first weeks she was blue, red, purple, yellow, orange, and green. )

I really heard you here and appreciate your explanation. I'm sorry this thread has thrown so much insensitivity upon your beliefs. This is a spiritual field that I've not much been exposed to and I'm not a very spiritual person at all. But I agree with you that for many people (myself included in my way), spirituality provides a bedrock, for the so far unanswerable questions. It is presumptuous for any one person to feel they know enough about spirituality to scoff at it or at others for practicing it---even moreso IMO if it is not an officially sanctioned religion by the mainstream. Because if we do, we imply that we humans already have all the answers and that is just far too humancentric for my tastes.

I think each and everyone of us "are born with an empathic connection to Earth". Not to get all spiritual on you guys, but I feel all humans have been created to have this connection but lose it because of our "ways".

I feel God created this connection so we could take care of his creation. I don't look at this as being indigo or crystal or whatever, just plain human in the eyes of our creator.
