    Still trying to figure that out, much like everyone.

    I am going to bump this topic. It seems that many who responded to this have not read the book, The Indigo Children, by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. There are 12 pages of contributor's biographies with some coming from religion/faith and others coming from mainstream science, psychology & medicine.

    I have been investigating my own observations in this area for the past 16 years and it is what has drawn me to typology, quantum physics, educational psychology and more. Unfortunately, Wiki definitions can be terse and are there by the kind contribution of whoever chose to take the time to key them in.

    They by no means contain the full story but, like much of the history we learned as a child, contain a person's perspetive of the definition. Like many people each observing an event from different angles and perspectives, each will see something different.

    I am surprised that it has taken until our generations to question the standard historical perspective that Columbus discovered America! I would have thought that the Inuit who crossed the Aleutian land bridge did that thousands of years ago, yet we still adhered to the myth of Columbus when in fact he was perceived as being the first white man from Europe to discover America in relatively recent times. Even that is in question now as well.

    With the many newer people on TC since this thread was first started, I would be interested to "hear" from those who have actually read the book, and are prepared to answer questions and posit thoughts respectfully, with an open mind.

    I think I've experienced some things that might qualify for the label. I don't know. I remember one time just zoning out on my front porch.. It was like I slipped into some state where I was just taking everything around me in: sounds, sights, pleasant thoughts.. then my mind swelled for a second, like I was hearing nothing but one huge, pounding, oscillating force.. and all of the sudden, I felt something slightly sharp on my hand.. which actually ruined the zoned-out-ness and jolted me out. But it was a wild sparrow, and she just stood there on my hand, which wouldn't be common for these birds or my neighborhood. Then it really registered to me what was going on and I freaked and shook her off.

    It happened another time, but this time, in front of people.. where a few friends were just talking outside, and I just sort of "left" the conversation for a second, experienced the same noise.. and suddenly, a sparrow swooped from the tree above us and landed on me again. It made a noise this time. The people there looked at me like "Huh?" I wonder if St. Francis was permanently in this state or something. It's said that animals followed him around and birds would land on him all of the time.

    Another time it happened, it had nothing to do with animals. My friend was driving me home, and I closed my eyes to relax, and slipped again.. and I heard something he was saying about another friend, but it was in my head somehow. Then my eyes opened, and I looked at him, and he was just calmly driving. Moments later though he said a variation of what I heard already, and my eyes bulged. I freaked, but tried not to show it. It was like I was catching him preparing his thoughts for a moment. I know I wasn't hearing him say something twice outloud.. the first had a completely different audible quality to it.

    Oh well.. Probably sounds stupid or crazy. There's more than that too, but I don't actually feel secure talking about it. There was a time when I started mentioning different things (which I won't get into), and my parents had me hospitalized for a while. I was diagnosed schizo-affective (and doctors have since changed that and just diagnose me depressive now. To be honest though, it's only because I was smart enough to play off any experiences to do with perception. Secondly, I've gone out of my way to try to be more grounded or what have you.. and these stranger experiences don't manifest like they once did. I think I've been scared into telling myself to work on being "normal".. I feel like a failed "indigo child", if anything. By that I mean, I understand skeptics, and they've gotten to me somewhat.)

    i get reiki treatments from an indigo.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    If you've not read the book I suggest that you do. There is vastly more to this than the experiences you detail. Your experiences may or may not be encountered by an Indigo, but would not be peculiar to an Indigo.

    I believe that I mentioned earlier in this thread that I have read that book, and it made me want to vomit. Reasons for that were explained earlier.

    Fwiw, if you take the "aura color" test of either Pamela Oslie, or of Barbara Bowers, I come out strongly Indigo. I've had psychics/clairvoyants tell me I am Indigo. I practice yoga, Buddhism, and take reincarnation very seriously. Books on Indigo children still make me want to vomit though. I really liked the section on Indigo's in Barbara Bowers book though, and in Oslie's later book(s), when she got off of the "all these children are psychic and have telepathic conversations with each other and see spirits and talk to dead people" stuff she started out with.

    If you want to ask me any questions on the topic feel free to.

    I kinda liked this site IndigoCrystalCoach™: Are you an Adult Indigo? Find out Here!
    just found this one Indigo Adult Psychics
    and this book Amazon.com: Indigo Adults: Forerunners of the New Civilization (9780595366927): Kabir Jaffe, Ritama Davidson: Books is the only book I've encountered on indigos that didn't make me want to vomit. Please note that at least one of the authors spent a long time [18 years apparently] in india practising yoga.

    I didn't feel nausea (maybe that is NF rather than NT - always interested to read of the response of others), but I felt that while there were some kernels of truth, it was not the whole truth, and some of the descriptions were speculative, and related to dysfunction, rather than wholesome traits.

    Likewise with the site you had just discovered. I find the list there contains as much dysfunction and that the author is trying to attribute that dysfunction to Indigos.

    I feel we need to weed out the elements that may cause dysfunction - food, environment and peel back the skin to see what is left.

    In my reading on aptitude there is definitely something I am seeing consistently across typology, aptitude, learning styles, quantum physics and genetics that seems connected across all of these areas, again disguised by other factors and perceptions, not the least of which is the attribution of dysfunction wheich may be caused by a number of factors.

    In teaching, and amongst colleagues, I am seeing a growing awareness and consciousness, almost like the ripples a stone causes in a pond. Thank you for the link to the book you were least affected (as in throwing up). I read a couple of the pages and this too feels like it is part of the ripple effect but *feels* more right than the others I have read. It is on my to buy booklist.

    This Indigo Children theory is an evil scheme promoted by the New Age Movement to trick eccentric kids and their parents into thinking they possess powers far beyond our current level of evolution and phase of development, and that with these so called supernatural abilities one could connect with the divine from on high.

    The divine from on high are in actuality masquerading masterminds gone mad beyond imagining, as they plan to enslave the masses within this prison matrix of pain and suffering we are cursed to inhabit, which of course real benevolent beings would never allow to come to pass.
