Indigo Children, also known as the New Children, are children who are believed to possess special, unusual, and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities. The concept, developed in the 70s by Nancy Ann Tappe, gained a popular interest with the publication of a book series in the late 90s. The interpretation of these beliefs range from being simply more empathetic and creative than their peers, to being the next step in human evolution.
Tappe recognized after 1980, about 80% of babies being born had a special aura, what she called Indigo, around them, due to their life mission and their life color. Indigo is the colour of the third eye chakra, which is an energy centre inside the head located between the two eyebrows. In particular, this chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions, and spirits.
The New Children have been here to force honesty and integrity on a global level. Telepathy and other psychic abilities are rife amongst Indigos, bringing us to a telepathic society. With Indigos coming to their early adolescence, the subconscious of these children will come to positions of power to make great changes through the world, bringing us to a society that lacks dishonesty and deceit.
Indigo Children have a warrior nature, a ‘rebel with a cause’ personality with absolutely no guilt. Often labeled as hyperactive or aggressive, Indigo Children typically have these characteristics:
- Born in 1978 or later
- Extremely headstrong
- Creative, with an artistic flair for music, jewelry making, drawing, poetry, etc.
- Prone to addictions
- An ‘Old Soul’
- Intuitive or psychic, possibly with a history of seeing angels or the deceased
- An isolationist, either through aggression towards others or fragile introversion
- Independent and proud, and not always of the best of things
- Possesses a deep desire to help the world change in a big way
- Wavers between low self-esteem and grandiosity
- Bores easily
- Has, most likely, been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD
- Prone to insomnia, restless sleep, nightmares, or simply difficulty or fear of falling asleep
- Has a history of depression, or even suicidal thoughts or attempts
- Looks for real, deep and lasting friendships
- Easily bonds with plants or animals
Additionally, the New Children, have birth charts with all planets that are located on one side of the chart, meaning their energies are strong in certain areas, and non-existent in others. Below is an example of a Indigo Child’s birth chart. Notice how the planets only show on one side of the chart. Keep in mind that, if your birth chart does not have the same features as the one below, it is not to say that you aren’t an Indigo Child. The test below is simply an assured way of being able to tell.
With the possibility of Indigo Children imposing a new way of life through positions of power, the theory of a hidden government, sometimes referred to as the New World Order, spreading suppressions through media and publication, social hierarchy and trends, and even vaccinations, is widely received by theorists.
To add to this, the hot debate of over-medication, specifically of Ritalin, the mainly prescribed drug to combat ADHD, is seen as a drug to limit one’s self from living to their Indigo potential.
Through Understanding Your Life Through Color, published in 1982, Tappe states she had noticed many children being born with “indigo” auras. The book was popularized by a book to come out several years later by the name of The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.
The Indigo Children listed several attributes of proposed Indigo Children. These traits include:
- They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it).
- They have a feeling of “deserving to be here,” and are surprised when others don’t share that.
- Self-worth is not a big issue. They often tell the parents “who they are.”
- They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).
- They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.
- They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and don’t require creative thought.
- They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like “system busters” (nonconforming to any system).
- They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially.
- They will not respond to “guilt” discipline (“Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did”).
- They are not shy in letting you know what they need.
