Indigo Children

In the past few weeks I have been confronted with an interesting term. My brother and I made appointments with an "Energy Worker", basically a psychiatrist. She told us about Indigo Children. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with the term, so for good measure, he is the Wikipedia link. Supposedly Indigo Children are certain humans that are farther advanced in the evolutionary cycle than others. She said that my brother and I portray the qualities that an Indigo Child would have. Some characteristics of an Indigo Child: (Taken from Wikipedia, just because it says it better than I could.)

  • Highly empathetic and intuitive by nature.
  • Can easily detect or are in tune with the thoughts and feelings of others.
  • Have a strong sense of purpose.
  • They are also believed to be prone to depression and sleep disorders such as insomnia, persistent nightmares, and even night terrors.
and a couple more.

I have always been intuitive. Everyone seems to believe I was born intelligent, although I don't know if I believe someone can be born smart. That sparks a whole different issue of "Can a genius be made?".

One of the points that I can say I completely agree with it the second. I have always been able to feel people's emotions and many times, their mental state. I know it sounds weird, almost psychic, but it's not like that. I take notice to thing that most people wouldn't take notice to, and connect that to the mentality of the person. I recently noticed a few odd things about a good friend of mine. He seems to not be able to confide in anyone, no matter how hard he tries. All of his friends have the perception that he is a normal guy and easy to hang out with, but I saw something else in him. I talked to his closest friend about this, and he confirmed that he had some issues in the past with a troubled relationship with his father, having to do with betrayal. It was something that he told me scarred the guy for life, and has ever since not been able to confide in many people. I'm not exactly sure what caused me to have this feeling about him, but I just knew.

The third point, however, I completely disagree with. I have no idea what my purpose is. I don't know why I'm here, I don't know who I'm here for, or what my role in humanity is. I think about this a lot. Although it may sound ignorant, sometimes I wish I was less intelligent. Like the famous quote goes:

"Ignorance is bliss."

The last point is interesting. I have had trouble with sleeping lately. I made a recent post how I am either always tired, or just indifferent. I don't feel a difference when I sleep 3 hours or 9 hours. This doesn't exactly pertain to insomnia or night terrors, but it is definitely something that has affected me. Not many people know what it feels like to never feel well rested.

This is one of the many reasons why I feel most connected with my brother. Although we are 8 years apart in age, I have never been better connected with everyone. Only he knows how I'm feeling when I don't know how to explain it to anyone else. The people I love want so much to know what I'm feeling, but I don't know how to explain it. I feel like they think I'm holding something from them, but I don't mean to.

So that's about it. I'm still not sure whether I believe in this Indigo theory, but it is interesting to think about nonetheless.
