Synonymous with crystal or star child, an indigo child is
“a person who has come into this world destined to
create change and spiritually awaken humanity.”
Epistemologically, the idea of Indigo Child initially came up while addressing the Aura Colors of various kids. The kids with Royal Blue or Indigo color were thought of as change makers in the course of humanity. Isn’t that amazing?
So, who Are The Indigo Children? Let’s find out.
These are the kids who change the course of humanity. They arrive on earth as the ‘Gifted Souls’ and have a very clear mission which is to reshape reality and to challenge the present belief system. It is not very uncommon that the Indigo child is diagnosed with behavioral problems like mood disorders, ADHD etc.
This only goes to prove one thing which is that they are largely misunderstood and thus are given medication for problems that they don’t even remotely have. These medications (obviously) have an adverse impact on the brain of the Indigo child.
Thus, it results in the loss of contact with their true nature which is not only a loss to them but it is a loss to the whole civilization. These Indigo kids first began appearing in 1970’s and there are two generations of them now. You might very well be among one of these Indigo Kids, destined for greatness.
It is very indeed pertinent to understand your value and to work hard to achieve your destiny.

You believe strongly in the idea that you are someone special, but at the same time, you work hard to achieve that same sense of entitlement from others also.

From your very childhood, you have behaved in a much more adult fashion than your peers. You feel that you somehow possess some old wisdom that other don’t.

You find it extremely difficult to sweep through the day with all the trivial tasks. You always want something new and exciting. All you need is a lesson in patience.
Challenges of the Indigo Child
Not all the people of this generation are Indigo and we should be careful not to idealize being an Indigo. Being an Indigo Child comes with its own set of challenges. They face a dual identity crisis. First is to find their motive early in life and then after completing that motive they have to find a new meaning for life. This becomes crippling and can lead to many problems for the Indigo child.
Sometimes, when you find yourself in a difficult situation, in situations where you find it difficult to complete your purpose of life, you risk going into the state of depression. You are a strong soul but due to the heavy demands that you put for yourself, you over-criticize your own self, leading to higher expectations the next time. This creates a vicious circle from which there is no coming back.
As an Indigo child, you are blessed with the attribute of integrity. You think that you are always right and will defend your stance to death. You are not afraid to challenge the norm and authority for proving yourselves right. Your biggest strength thus sometimes becomes your biggest weakness.
