What does it mean to be an Indigo adult?

Now that so many 'gen indigo' are in adulthood there is a wide sweeping wave of people searching for spiritual meaning and life purpose. While the indigo traits lists help us identify our tribe, in many cased we still need to know what's next? Because being very intuitive is one of the strongest and most common qualities we often find ourselves working in psychic and energetic healing areas.

What do Indigo adults look like?

The psychical characteristics of indigo people are as varied as there are people in the world. In truth we all look like a mix of our earthly parents, just like anyone else. Having a big ego is one overly evident sign of NOT being an indigo. But there are some egotistical myths going around the internet saying Indigo adults will all have physical characteristics such as: blue or green eye coloring, blonde or white hair, ageless appearance, and androgynous sexuality. So there is no need to seek out a young looking, blue-eyed blond, bi-sexual if you are trying to find your indigo soul mate.

RE: What Is An Indigo Adult? - by Kaylor (Michigan, USA)

I just found out that I'm an Indigo Adult. I took the "test" on several sites, and answered "YES!" to ALL of the traits of an Indigo. Also, I am an INFJ, Jung personality type, one of the most common for an Indigo.

I've spent my whole life, not knowing "what I want to be when I grow up." I still don't know! It's driven me crazy! I've always felt like I was WAITING for something, but I have no idea WHAT!! I'm just....waiting.

I am Psychic, very intuitive, and I can read people like a book. I can get into their space, and they don’t even know I'm there!

I can also "manifest" things. I can make things happen. I know things are going to happen, before they happen. I've always had the sense, that I could heal people somehow.

My Numerology Life Path is a 7, which is the most Spiritual. I've always known that my life path would lead me to something very Spiritual. I'm still not sure what.

I'm lousy at relationship! I seem to attract men that are nothing but NEEDY, and they SUCK the life force out of me, and drain me. I'm in such a situation now, and hate it. My mother was very cold, and distant, and VERY controlling. That has caused me problems as an adult with anxiety. Now, this person in my life is not controlling, but he IS NEEDY! So, he DOES control me with that. He USES me for a CRUTCH! My life is ALL ABOUT HIM! I have NO LIFE! I feel like I've come FULL CIRCLE and he's the SATANIC REINCARNATION OF MY EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE MOTHER!!! YIKES!! :(

I LIVE for my Quiet time, and my Alone time! It's when I can ground, and center myself, and recharge my batteries. I love to meditate. I feel like there is something in the Universe that will tell me something. I do have a "Spirit Guide," who wishes to be called, "Twilight." She's always there, and I can channel him/her. I don't get any answers though, I feel like I am suppose to figure this out by myself.

SO! I'm an INDIGO ADULT! NOW! What do I do with this? How can I corral all of these talents, and gifts, and weirdness....and create a life for myself? I just want to be happy. No point in wanting to be "NORMAL," that ship has already sailed.....and I wasn't on it!

I want to help people, and my biggest fear is that I will die....."WITH MY SONG STILL IN ME!

I would appreciate any information or advice from any other Indigo Adults. I'd LOVE to make some new INDIGO FRIENDS!!! Are we supposed to be getting together and DOING SOMETHING???? Or are we "waiting to be CALLED????" - Thanks! - Kaylor

I also just found out I'm an Indigo Adult. I've never felt so incredibly free from the unknown, but always feeling I have to save the world. It took 49 f****in years to finally find the answer. I've been so anxious scared lonely etc. I'm very excited to find out whats next, and when I can start what I'm supposed to do. This is soooo crazy, I really thought I was insane, or even that I died and I was in hell. I'm extremely in tune, and I'm psychic mostly in my dreams.  I would love to be able to find some friends here I can share stories with. I feel comfortable for once in my life. Thank you true God for finally showing me what this is. I truly feel blessed.

Thank you for posting this Kaylor. Today is the day I've figured out I'm indigo. I feel like I mirror everything wrote. It's indescribable how comforting it is to know there's someone else out there who feels this way!

"Freedom to be one's SELF" - I've always knew I was different from my family members(siblings, parents, aunts, etc). It was very difficult being raised by a non-believer of anything except her religious belief/s.

At the age of three years and ten months old I experienced "Remote Viewing". It was sometime after dark when I woke up to a silent apartment. Fearlessly, I walked bare footed, crushing cockroaches as I went through the kitchen. I opened the locked kitchen door, and walked out into a dark hall and stopped at the top of the stairs. As I looked down, a light shown brightly on four men dressed in identical clothing, with high boots and helmet's on their heads. They were holding a red, white and blue flag that I now know was Iwo-Jimi. I let out a scream and mother came out the open door and led me back into the apartment and into my bed. No, she did not say a word.

That was my first experience that I remembered. Around the same time "Atar" showed himself to me - my personal guide. He was a wonderful spirit guide, filled with love and understanding for me. He stayed with me until I was in my 50"s. Do not know what I would have done without him by my side.

So from my first known experience to my many, many experiences throughout my life I never knew I was an Indigo until recently. I found a site called Powerful Intentions and joined. From that site I joined a group called Indigo adults and that is how I discovered "ME".

So happy you found yourself - by: Ms. Starr
So happy for you. I know how you felt growing up. I was lucky because we, the females in our family are also. I am glad you found your way. So many get lost, and are diagnosed with mental illness and are given drugs to stop voices and visions. It really is too bad for them. Happy for you and if you ever need anyone just to listen. We are always here.

I am the happiest little bee around, I laugh and have fun (that's magic in my heart) but my life is....dare I say it Sh.t!...lol...

I came across this site in my search for learning.... read the indigo adult list and ticked all of them.... now I kinda know I fit into some box and maybe my life can finally find direction. I can feel like the most unworthy-ist of the unworthy yet I often feel divinely important. What rattles my cage is others that live in a trance telling me that I do this wrong or that wrong. I can feel that I am the one living my life incorrectly. I think I have off the wall notions and can feel quite embarrassed by what I blog after I have pressed the send button, especially if I write something that's close to my true self.

I often feel that I am the only one that feels this way. I have 2 children, my eldest now an adult herself and labeled ADHD as a child. Now I know she is an indigo child. I have battled and battled authorities at every turn, still in battles now. I am tired of battling, I feel everything from bad thoughts to people talking about me behind my back. Paranoia I often feel. I do believe I know the truth, but it is others that lie creating confusion.

I do need to find a way to put everything in its right context and for me to know that what I feel and think is for real. I seem to always trash my dreams and never seem to be able to achieve them. I'm a social misfit at worst, a truth seeker at best. I suppose I need to find the middle medium.....

I am very sensitive to everything around me and my search always consists of finding info on protecting myself, my family the world and the universe. I believe in lots of things that I feel are for the betterment of our children's children. The future world is what we need to protect. Right now however I need to find the light again to guide my way and I see that this site has some good tips for me to live my life as what I know now is an indigo adult, so that I can pass that light on to my children xxxx.

Indigo Adult? by: Debbie in Florida
I found the indigo information recently and it captured me completely. I recognized myself so vividly. My question is can an indigo, turn away from his/her gifts when younger and still return to them upon realization?
