I am an indigo person and I am 26 years old. When I first researched Indigo People, I cried all day because I felt for once in my life, that I was "home". I have always been "different" or "weird" because as a child I would say things that kids just don't say, philosophy professors say that stuff. Also, I saw angels until I was about 10, and would see other children getting hurt before it happened and react hysterically. People would say why are you crying, and I would say for instance, that little blond girl fell off the swing and got hurt. They would say, no, see? she's swinging, she's fine. No sooner would she fly off the swing and land on her face. What upset me was that I knew it would happen, and didn't know how to help her.
I am very sensitive and empathetic & I often see outlines on people. I used to think it was an optic problem, but there's nothing wrong with my eyes. In 2006 I had 2 jobs but overnight I was removed from work because I kept getting sick physically and emotionally. I couldn't hold food down, I couldn't stop crying,and I couldn't sleep and this went on for months. I was put on a regimen of drugs and I hated that.
Eventually, still with no diagnosis, I decided to use 'not working' as an opportunity to get centered. I volunteered,learned Reiki, began participating in earth day activities, came out as sexually indifferent to gender, and connected with people who I could share my unconventional insights with.
As people began to tell me, you have an old soul, and you know things you can't know, and Oh, I never looked at it that way, I realized I have a lot to offer. But I felt like somehow I am running out of time, not to live, but to do what I am supposed to do. (whatever that was)I also realized these medications/drugs were not for me. I stopped taking all pills, 4 for my stomach, 2 for my intestines, even an anti-psychotic which was the only thing that worked up until that point for sleep.
Seems like as soon as I stopped, I could sleep and eat and I became peaceful. I realized that I am supposed to be here because I have to much to explore and teach and I am not meant for this drug "treatment', that I can begin healing within myself and inspire others to do the same in their own way.
I can't explain how I knew I'd be fine, I just knew. I am not suggesting that people stop taking all of their medications, but it was right for me and I knew when to do it. I believe the mental & physical changes in conjunction with the centering, Reiki, and connecting with the earth, were all part of my adult awakening. This is my first correspondence with any other indigo people.
I am so excited to know that there are others like me.
