Indigo Adults: What Are These Special Children Doing Now?

Dear bloggers & Face Book users: please help us grow our little music school by sharing and reblogging this post – thank you – S


Before I launch into Indigo adults, let me give you a bit of back-story. The title “indigo children” was originally developed by authors Lee Carroll and Jan Tober who when working with Nancy Tappe discovered that her rare brain disorder synaesthesia allowed her to perceive auras or colours around people. These colours were a representation of that persons personality and essence, and never before had she seen so many children with indigo in their auras. Lee Carroll determined at the time that these were “boys or girls who displayed a new and unusual set of psychological attributes, revealing a pattern of behaviour generally undocumented before”. It was those attributes that marked these children as a force that would slowly change the world simply due to their questioning nature, rare insight and strength to challenge established authority.

Ten years on from their original book ‘Indigo Children’ and we now have indigo teenagers and adults. However it is difficult to say where they are today since there is both a light and dark side to every story. Neale Donald Walshe, author of ‘Conversations with God’ said “Indigo children have access to human experience at a larger level, at a greater depth than most people”. But these are also adults who were often misdiagnosed with Attention-Deficit Disorder, medicated and brought up with the ingrained autocratic methods of their parents. A loving environment growing up, is important with every child, and more so with indigo children as they learn and experience in a different way to others. Some Indigo adults have started their own families with a new generation of indigo children that they are lovingly raising in a balanced and harmonious environment. Others have never found their place in the world, have had difficult conforming to society and constantly felt misunderstood.

As you can imagine indigo teenagers would be difficult to live with if parents tried to constrain them with rules and regulations. Talks ending with “because I said so” would have absolutely no effect, or perhaps the opposite effect desired. Dr. Jill Porter developed a ‘Constructivism’ learning environment for indigo teens where their knowledge is constructed from experience. She also advised that parents take a similar approach to their teens and young adults by allowing them to learn and process for themselves rather than supplying them with lists of do’s and don’ts. “Indigo Children anticipate respectThey expect to be spoken to, not talked at or over” said Prof. Jennifer Townselyin ‘Indigo Children: Ten Years Later’.

Indigo adults are also now in the workforce. Company executives maintain that the new generation of workers is not like the old one. These employees’ question and wont give respect that is not earned. In serving positions like waiters and desk clerks, the ‘can I help you’ protocol is gone. Instead it’s replaced by silence, an assessing look – and if you treat them as an equal regardless of the hierarchy of the office, they will offer you the same courtesy. Studies show Indigo adults are less concerned about monetary value and more passionate about freedom, creativity and changing perceptions. These adults may be seen as lacking motivation, having a terrible work ethic and not knowing their place. However Indigos have an innate sense of self worth and though they do not accept the oppressive attitude associated with ‘servers’, they can make the best humanitarians if society stops judging each other on class, job, social standing, and instead treats everyone with the same compassion.

Nancy Tappe affirms that “usually each universal age is accompanied by a preponderance of people with that life color… this the Violet Age of transition. During the next age, the Indigo Age, Indigo colors will be the norm.” The indigo aura is dominating our society these days from children through to adults. They are now in schools, in the home, in the workplace and they have the remarkable potential to make a difference. Regardless of whether or not they are psychic or whether or not you believe indigo auras exist. We can all see the change in the world, where young people becoming adults refuse to accept governments and methods that are corrupt, where ‘sit down and be quiet’ is no longer a viable teaching method in schools and where the energy, spirit and enthusiasm of children is now seen in adults who are slowly but surely making their mark on the world.
