Indigo Children, Who Are They and How Can We Support Them?

Written by on October 10, 2019 in Conscious Living, Conscious Parenting with 14 Comments


Many parents have heard the term Indigo used to describe their children. There are a few different approaches that parents, family and friends can use to identify, understand, and help support Indigo Children. It is also quite possible that a few parents may be Indigos themselves. The Indigos are here to help raise the consciousness of our planet and to help us change the old paradigms and implement new ones. At times it may be difficult to relate to them and vice versa but we can coexist beautifully if we understand a little bit more about them.

What Is An Indigo?

An Indigo person is born on the Indigo Ray vibration with specific personality traits, interests, perspectives and energetic sensitivities. We started to see an influx of Indigos being born in the 1980's. Yes, there have most certainly been Indigos that have been born before 1980 such as Albert Einstein and Karl Jung.

You or Your Child Might Be An Indigo If:

  • They have strong empathic abilities and are sensitive to harsh environments and people
  • Have difficulty with routine or following directions
  • Possess the ability to see through dishonesty and deception
  • Is highly intuitive
  • Sees aura colors around people and objects
  • May be diagnosed as dyslexic or ADHD
  • Has the uncanny ability to predict future events
  • Can be overconfident and or has a very strong sense of self-worth
  • Is often passionate about charity, and environmental awareness
  • Often has a short temper and sometimes is unable to express their fears and anxieties  in a healthy manner

Now that we have identified the characteristics of an Indigo there are different approaches that we can take to help nurture them so that we are able to understand and connect with them on a deeper level while supporting them on their path as well as not completely disconnecting with them.

How To Support Indigo Children

  • Patience – By being patient and remembering that we may be dealing with two different thought processes and that Indigos have strong wills, we will not make progress when we try to out-will them
  • Schedule regular Reiki sessions for them because energy healing will do wonders for their mind, body and spirit
  • A regular smudging with sage and or bathing with epson or kosher salt will help keep their auric field strong and healthy
  • Having them wear or carry grounding crystals such as hematite, tiger's eye, or black tourmaline will help ground them and keep outside environmental influences at bay
  • Teach them how to put themselves in an energetic bubble when they are in large crowds, this will help them feel secure
  • Encouraging them to keep a regular meditation practice will help them to decompress and be more in touch with their inner power
  • Avoid food additives, preservatives and food coloring will help their moods and help them stay focused and grounded
  • Spending time outside in nature works wonders for Indigos

Being an Indigo is a challenge but also a blessing as well. They are bright, funny and help us think outside of the box and encourage us to let go of old programming that may not serve us as a collective for our future as a conscious collective. There is a lot we can learn from them if we can meet them halfway.

Blessings and Light,

    I was born in the 70’s, I’m definitely an indigo. I think that by now, most kids are coming in as other star children. Crystal or rainbows. And more than likely choosing an Indigo to be their parent. They will be the next level of beings to continue to anchor future dimensions, and co-create heaven on earth.

    To help us, you need to believe and work with us. I’m an Indigo Children (1986) and I just had my awakening, with 28. Just now, 3 years later, I’m starting to understanding what is this about. I feel a bit lost because there is nobody I can talk about it. People, including my husband, think I’m crazy, so I keep it to myself. I feel very lonely and I would like to know if you know anywhere I can talk to another indigos? I would like to exchange our worlds views and see what can I do to improve my abilities and together see how can we improve the world (I will tell you, it’s a long and eternal work, because we can’t control everything that happens in the Universe, but we can do make big changes to humanity, and it’s happening soon) I live a dimension of synchronicity and I don’t believe in anything religious and Im not sure if it is a spiritual thing either. But it is something much beyond we can imagine. I believe everybody can access this part of the brain, the difference is that this is already inside us waiting to wake. And comes without you asking, its very traumatic and very intense and once its there you can’t hide you don’t know it. If you identify with me, please contact me 🙂
