Indigo Adults

Their Unique Challenges and Opportunities.

When indigo adults find balance they can become very strong, healthy, happy individuals.

......There I was thinking “I’m a fifty five year old Indigo Child.”

If you are wondering about your psychic abilities it will be worth running through the indigo adult characteristic checklist below. I had read about the indigos and watched the movie ‘Indigo’ starring Neale Donald Walsch ( Conversations With God ) written by James Twyman and produced and directed by Stephen Simon (What Dreams May Come and Somewhere in Time and founder of The Spiritual Cinema Circle).

Like most people I thought most indigo souls were children. But I have realized that there are quite a few Indigo Adults who came as forerunners years ago.

I’m learning that the indigo adult first appeared about 1700 but more commonly from the 1950’s and 1960’s. In the Indigo Adult Characteristic Checklist that follows I’ve included my own answers and experiences so that you can see the connection with being psychic and being an indigo adult.

If you check out strongly too and you are not yet allowing your gifts to support you this may be the encouragement you need to let go of struggle and follow your psychic calling.

Please note, anyone could have a few of these traits, but Indigo Adults have most or all of these 26 characteristics.

Indigo Adult Characteristics

My Experiences

1: Are intelligent, though may not have had top grades.

Left school at age 15 BEFORE taking exams. But have been successful in business.

2: Are very creative and enjoy making things.

Not artistic, but yes to creative problem solving.

3: Always need to know WHY, especially why they are being asked to do something.

Just HAVE to know why or there is no point is there?

4: Had disgust and perhaps loathing for much of the required and repetitious work in school.

Absolutely! Expert school escape artist. Until parents found a radically different, Steiner Type, private school.

4: Had disgust and perhaps loathing for much of the required and repetitious work in school.

Absolutely! Expert school escape artist. Until parents found a radically different, Steiner Type, private school.

5: Were rebellious in school in that they refused to do homework and rejected authority of teachers, OR seriously wanted to rebel, but didn't DARE, usually due to parental pressure.

Didn't rebel, just kept escaping :-)

6: May have experienced early existential depression and feelings of helplessness. These may have ranged from sadness to utter despair. Suicidal feelings while still in high school or younger are not uncommon in the Indigo Adult.

Although never suicidal or really depressed, I did have feelings of helplessness at times growing up.

7: Have difficulty in service-oriented jobs. Indigos resist authority and caste system of employment.

Unemployable! :-)

8: Prefer leadership positions or working alone to team positions.

Always worked alone where possible or in leadership positions.

9: Have deep empathy for others, yet an intolerance of stupidity.

The clash between being non-judgmental and not suffering fools.

10: May be extremely emotionally sensitive including crying at the drop of a hat (no shielding) Or may be the opposite and show no expression of emotion (full shielding).

Can do both :-) (-:

11: May have trouble with RAGE.

Avoided anger situations.

12: Have trouble with systems they consider broken or ineffective, ie. political, educational, medical, and legal.

In the world but not of it.

13: Alienation from or anger with politics - feeling your voice won't count and/or that the outcome really doesn't matter.

No point! - In the world but not of it.

14: Frustration with or rejection of the traditional American dream - 9-5 career, marriage, 2.5 children, house with white picket fence, etc.

Well, being an Englishman in Australia, didn't have an 'American' Dream. But did reject same.

15: Anger at rights being taken away, fear and/or fury at "Big Brother watching you."

Yes, leave me alone! Lived outside the system.

16: Have a burning desire to do something to change and improve the world. May be stymied what to do. May have trouble identifying their path.

That was a thirty year struggle.

17: Have psychic or spiritual interest appear fairly young - in or before teen years.

Ghosts scared me as a child, but understood it around 20

18: Had few if any Indigo role models. Having had some doesn't mean you're not an indigo, though.

Yes, there were no INDIGO role models, but looking back the few who influenced me probably were.

19: Have strong intuition.

Yes - Very ESP

20: Random behavior pattern or mind style - (symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder). May have trouble focusing on assigned tasks, may jump around in conversations.

I think so, but let me tell you about something else I just thought of.

21: Have had psychic experiences, such as premonitions, seeing angels or ghosts, out of body experiences, hearing voices.

All of the above, will write a book about them all.

22: May be electrically sensitive such as watches not working and street lights going out as you move under them, electrical equipment malfunctioning and lights blowing out.

This one I'm not so much. I don't were a watch. But I have had the odd unexplained blow out.

23: May have awareness of other dimensions and parallel realities.

Absolutely - Yletulosba

24: Sexually are very expressive and inventive OR may reject sexuality in boredom or with intention of achieving higher spiritual connection. May explore alternative types of sexuality.

Never bored, think sex and spirituality go together just fine and I'm a happy monogamous hetro!

25: Seek meaning to their life and understanding about the world May seek this through religion or spirituality, spiritual groups and books, self-help groups and books.

Opened a new age bookshop, ran seminars, sold up and traveled the world. Have been professional Psychic for 30 years too.

26: When they find balance they may become very strong, healthy, happy individuals.

Yes we do :-)
