Transcript of INDIGO CHILD
Descriptions of indigo children include:
The belief that they are empathetic, curious, strong-willed, independent, and often perceived by friends and family as being strange.
possess a clear sense of self-definition and purpose.
exhibit a strong innate subconscious spirituality from early childhood (which, however, does not necessarily imply a direct interest in spiritual or religious areas).
A strong feeling of entitlement, or "deserving to be here."
Other alleged traits include:
A high intelligence quotient, an inherent intuitive ability, and
resistance to rigid, control-based paradigms of authority.
The term "indigo children" originated with parapsychologist and self-described synesthete and psychic Nancy Ann Tappe, who developed the concept in the 1970s. Tappe published the book Understanding Your Life Through Color in 1982 describing the concept, stating that during the mid-1960s she began noticing that many children were being born with "indigo" auras(in other publications Tappe said the color indigo came from the "life colors" of the children which she acquired through her synesthesia). The idea was later popularized by the 1998 book The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, written by husband and wife self-help lecturers Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.
WHAT IS INDIGO CHILD?
are children who are believed to possess special, unusual and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities. The idea is based on concepts developed in the 1970s by Nancy Ann Tapper and further developed by Jan Tober and Lee Carroll. The concept of indigo children gained popular interest with the publication of a series of books in the late 1990s and the release of several films in the following decade. A variety of books, conferences and related materials have been created surrounding belief in the idea of indigo children and their nature and abilities. The interpretations of these beliefs range from their being the next stage in human evolution, in some cases possessing paranormal abilities such as telepathy, to the belief that they are more empathetic and creative than their peers.
PARENTING INDIGO CHILD
These children need to be prepared for their spiritual mission during their formative years. And to do so, parents and teachers are called to guide them by always telling them the truth. We can pray for guidance and speak the truth in a loving way. We can share our feelings with them at the same time that we refrain from shouting or accusing. When we are positive role models to the Indigos, we help them handle their fiery emotions.
To their detriment, some of these gifted children have been diagnosed as ADD (attention deficit disorder) or ADHD (attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder). Doctors may prescribe Ritalin or other medications helpful to ADD or ADHD children but frustrating to the Indigo child. To be medicated to damp down who you really are is not a positive message.
Parents of Indigos soon discover that when they get upset with their children's behavior, they do best to remove themselves from the situation and take a breather to regain their poise. They learn to take calming deep breaths and pray for spiritual intervention from the angels or the ascended masters. Of course, if the child has been indulging in a full-blown tantrum, tearing things up or throwing things around, the parents need to immediately give the child a time-out, and then go about composing themselves.
