Are You An Indigo Adult?

Earlier I came across the Indigolifecentre blog in my continued research about Indigo adults and children. In certain circles it is much talked about but often one doesn’t want to explore for what it might tell you about yourself. In all my research I have never found a more information on one “site” regarding this phenomenon so would like to share with you the following characteristics of Indigo Adults and Children – perhaps you are one of them or perhaps your children are… have a read and see what you think 🙂


* Are intelligent, though may not have had top grades.

* Are very creative and enjoy making things.

* Always need to know WHY, especially why they are being asked to do something.

* Had disgust and perhaps loathing for much of the required and repetitious work in school.

* Were rebellious in school in that they refused to do homework and rejected authority of teachers, OR seriously wanted to rebel, but didn’t DARE, usually due to parental pressure.

* May have experienced early existential depression and feelings of helplessness. These may have ranged from sadness to utter despair. Suicidal feelings while still in high school or younger are not uncommon in the Indigo Adult.

* Have difficulty in service-oriented jobs. Indigos resist authority and caste system of employment.

* Prefer leadership positions or working alone to team positions.

* Have deep empathy for others, yet an intolerance of stupidity.

* May be extremely emotionally sensitive including crying at the drop of a hat (no shielding) Or may be the opposite and show no expression of emotion (full shielding).

* May have trouble with RAGE.

* Have trouble with systems they consider broken or ineffective, ie. political, educational, medical, and legal.

* Alienation from or anger with politics – feeling your voice won’t count and/or that the outcome really doesn’t mattter.

* Frustration with or rejection of the traditional American dream – 9-5 career, marriage, 2.5 children, house with white picket fence, etc.

* Anger at rights being taken away, fear and/or fury at “Big Brother watching you.”

* Have a burning desire to do something to change and improve the world. May be stymied what to do. May have trouble identifying their path.

* Have psychic or spiritual interest appear fairly young – in or before teen years.

* Had few if any Indigo role models. Having had some doesn’t mean you’re not an indigo, though.

* Have strong intuition. * Random behavior pattern or mind style – (symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder). May have trouble focusing on assigned tasks, may jump around in conversations.

* Have had psychic experiences, such as premonitions, seeing angels or ghosts, out of body experiences, hearing voices.

* May be electrically sensitive such as watches not working and street lights going out as you move under them, electrical equipment malfunctioning and lights blowing out.

* May have awareness of other dimensions and parallel realities.

* Sexually are very expressive and inventive OR may reject sexuality in boredom or with intention of achieving higher spiritual connection. May explore alternative types of sexuality.

* Seek meaning to their life and understanding about the world May seek this through religion or spirituality, spiritual groups and books, self-help groups and books.

* When they find balance they may become very strong, healthy, happy individuals.

Please note, anyone could have a few of these traits, but Indigo Adults have most or all of these 25 characteristics.


First Wave Indigo Profiles
These are some of the qualities and challenges that First Wave Indigos experience.
Most Indigos can relate to at least 90% of this list .~ Were born en masse (about 62%) between 1969 and 1987 (With stragglers before and after – 30% were born in the 50’s).~ Highly intelligent in their “Own Way.”~ Are literally “wired differently” than other people.

~ Know in their heart and core that they are here “on a mission” but many don’t remember what that is or how to go about it.

~ Have an inner awareness that what is being taught in churches and schools is NOT accurate and know there are hidden agendas around the lies that are being accepted by the masses as “Truth.” This is extremely frustrating but inspires them to uncover the cover-ups and expose The Real Truth!~ Have a strong sense of truth, ethics, justice and freedom. (That is why “authority figures” many times irritate and frustrate them). When these are in jeopardy, will give their “all” for their cause, and many times feel they would rather die than give-in to tyranny and deception.

~ Many have strong or unusual Psychic and Telekinetic abilities.

~ Have extraordinary levels of compassion.~ Have purple/UV as their favorite color or see it in their dreams.

~ Have an affinity to Knights, Castles, and Dragons.

~ Shut down psychic abilities because it scares people.

~ Feel like they could be one of the characters on the 1980’s television series “The Misfits of Science” or one of the young people in Xavier’s school for the gifted in the recent movies from the comic books “The X-Men.”

~ Many times get along better with animals and nature than people.

~ Have a bond/connection to the trees, and nature in general.

~ Can relate well to children and or the elderly

~ Feel very comfortable lounging, and would rather sit on the floor on a pillow than in a hard, uncomfortable chair. (Would prefer sitting on the floor in school, and business meetings if they could get away with it!)

~ Are very attracted to soft natural fabrics in their cloths and fuzzy blankets are the ultimate!

~ Many times get very impatient when with someone who doesn’t get to the point.

~ Creative, inventive, and very intuitive.

~ Involve themselves in human/animal rights efforts.

~ Have an innate sense of “oneness” and connectedness to all of creation. Get confused and disturbed when others don’t share their reality of “at-one-ment.”

~ High capacity for love, and therefore others may feel uncomfortable by their intensity.

~ Very sensitive, sometimes “Hyper Sensitive” and may not be able to distinguish between the emotional fields of those around them and their own personal emotions.

~ May go through periods of apathy and cynicism as coping mechanisms.

~ Intense longing for “their own kind”·.Soul Mates·but don’t know where to look.

~ Have what I endearingly term H.D.D. or “Hug Deficit Disorder” and need immense amounts of physical touching, hugs, and love to “cuddle.”

~ Because of being misunderstood and then betrayed, may develop strong trust issues, and therefore keep many of their thoughts, feelings and opinions to themselves.

~ About 30% have difficulties expressing them selves, especially in writing.

NOTE: If you read some of the poorly written correspondence from some of these First Wave Indigos, you would assume they were uneducated and nearly illiterate, but the truth is, that these same people can also be speed readers and can absorb information in seconds that would take others minutes to understand and retain.

~ Very disciplined when properly motivated.

~ Get bored and or frustrated in school.

~ Male Indigos (and many Females) for the most part don’t “do authority” very well because most of the time they are smarter than those in authority.

~ Many find themselves in “Alternative Schools.”

~ Female Indigos seem to be able to cope better with the school systems than their male counterparts.

~ Many are labeled “Dyslexic” and find themselves in “Special Classes” at school that usually never work for them.

~ Indigos have a strong desire to know “why” ·and if they don’t see “the point” in something, (or if is it isn’t explained properly), will feel it is simply not worth their time/energy and will either react with resistance or just simply “blow off” the people/things that seem not worth their time and energy.

~ Innately have their own ways of calculation and many have been accused of cheating in school because they do the answers in their head and cannot show their work.

~ Indigos have an evolved awareness of how things work, therefore, many of the rigid rules and methods of learning Math, English, and Physics (NOT metaphysics or quantum physics) make no sense to them.

~ All First wave Indigos have what might be termed as “A Gift of Healing” ….whether it is making people feel better with their humor and wit, hands on healing, animal and plant healing, healing with music and tone, or healing with new “unproven” methods.. ·some of which are natural and need no external training for.

~ Many Indigos have “Telepathic Healing” abilities and long distances make no difference to the efficiency of their work.

~ Because of their expanded perception, unusual creativity, wanting to try new things, and running way ahead of what is being taught in class, many were diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Disorder, and put on Ritalin as children.s

~ Most Indigo’s (especially males) have a high innate aptitude for computers/electronics and or auto mechanics. It is common for them to “Just Know” how to operate and trouble shoot with very little help from a book or an instructor.

~ First Wave Indigo’s are extremely creative, and express this innate skill in many (and often times OUTRAGEOUS forms.) These skills manifest in: Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Decorating, Photography, Writing (in sometimes very extreme and unique ways), Making Blueprints and Prototypes, Composing and Playing Music·.(even if they have never had lessons), inventing games, and creating new & more efficient ways of doing things.

~ Very few Indigos are interested in aggressive sports such as Football and Hockey. They would rather spend their physical exercise time and energy in personal achievement and outdoor sports such as track & field, skateboarding, mountain climbing, cycling, kayaking, etc. They are also attracted to discipline and self-defense sports such as Fencing and Martial Arts

~ Because of their feeling so foreign to this planet, a very high percentage of Indigos have been put on “Antidepressants” to make them appear “Normal” and fit in our society·.this is just a temporary fix though, and only adds to their challenges.

~ Many Indigos are drawn to Theatrics, Drama, and Stand-up Comedy. In these venues they can “pretend to be someone else” when actually they are using this as an outlet to vent and express their own views and pent up emotions. It is also a place for “misfits” to find a place of refuge and “fit in”.

~ Because of their feeling so “alien” here, many go through periods of severe grief, loneliness, and displacement·..and may turn to drugs, alcohol, or attempt suicide for a way out.

~One trademark that a high % of First Wave Indigos have, is living through extreme hardships as children, teenagers, and young adults. Many were born into family situations that were physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychically abusive. These Indigos had to figure out how to balance and keep their inherent integrity levels, while being subjected to painful and life shattering experiences. A large % were implanted in such horrendous situations as: organized crime, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and even ritual/cult abuse & mind control.

I am a through and through Indigo, how about you?



To find out, ask yourself these questions:

1. Did your child come into the world acting like royalty?

2. Does your child have a feeling of deserving to be here?

3. Does your child have an obvious sense of self?

4. Does your child have difficulty with discipline and authority?

5. Does your child refuse to do certain things they are told to do?

6. Is waiting in lines torture for your child?

7. Is your child frustrated by ritual-oriented systems that require little creativity?

8. Does your child see better ways of doing thing at home and at school?

9. Is your child a nonconformist?

10. Does your child refuse to respond to guilt trips?

11. Does your child get bored rather easily with assigned tasks?

12. Does your child display symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder?

13. Is your child particularly creative?

14. Does your child display intuition?

15. Does your child have strong empathy for others?

19. Does your child seem be a daydreamer?

20. Does your child have very old, deep, wise looking eyes?

21. Does your child have spiritual intelligence?

If you have more than 10 yes answers, he or she probably is an Indigo. If more than 15, almost definitely.

If so, this is not a bad thing!! The only difficult part is that they are very misunderstood at this point in time in our culture and therefore may have some difficulty dealing with systems such as the rigidity of the current educational system. Your own recognition of them and understanding of how to interact with them will help! You can teach others how to work with your child for the best effects.Recognize the Indigo Children are the ones who will help raise the vibration of our planet! These are the ones who will bring us the enlightenment to ascend. Realize that if you are the parent of one of these spirits, you have been given a wonderful, marvelous gift!

Feel honored that they have chosen you and help them develop to their fullest Indigo potential.

  1. Wow. Thanks for sharing! I think most, if not all, children have all these wonderful traits. It’s just that the grownups forget they were once indigos, and continually surpress these qualities in children. Also, due to societal fear, we also surpress these qualities which may remain in ourselves. Hopefully more adults will recognize the value in indiviuality, creativity, and the unknown, and refrain in surpressing that which is unknown or different about ourselves and our children; and thus we may, in time, evolve into humans who second-naturedly use their innate intuitition, creativity, and under developed senses.

    My nephew was diagnosed as schizoprenic; and I’ve always thought that perhaps he just was able to tune into that which I and many others could not. My sister, who has been jailed for refusing to keep a dog tied or fenced, and continually houses strangers, homeless, or anyone else needing refuge– refused to mandate his meds, because they surpressed his “real self” too much. He was blessed to have her for a mother, and I am blessed to have her as a sister.

    Good Friday to you
    Peace, Light and Love to you and yours . . .

  2. Cordieb you have hit the nail on the head – I believe that society stifles our human spirit from a young age, you either conform to what is said to be normal (normally by a church) or you are an outcast. Agree with you, your sister sounds amazing, a true angel on this earth, the world needs more of them!

  3. You know that is a good question… I shall ponder … it is just a concept my thoughts on this one has expanded greatly and I feel it is just a concept that is used to try and understand what is going on… any truth?

  4. They missed a trait: frustration with or inability to follow standard grammar and usage rules…

    Seriously, though, aren’t these extremely common traits, at least in middle-class American children, especially considering that so many of these traits aren’t quantified?

  5. “at least in middle-class American children” why only American? What makes American children so much different to the rest of the world?

    Sorry you said it and now I am just wondering.

  6. wow.
    This sounds a lot like what I’m dealing with. I guess I am an ndigo. I have at least twenty og the characteristics of an indigo adult.

    This is really cool


  7. Yes Indigo head to toe,
    “abilities” have magnified 10 fold over the last 18 months, and new and strange ones are developing bi-monthly, not quite sure how to handle all of this… to much to fast. I have spoken with some “psychics” / new agers and they say it is happening to many people but they are not like me. Infidels!!!!!!!

  8. Casandr X Welcome to my home of insanity! Glad you enjoyed this one, there are no clear cut yes’ and no’s but there are many of us that have the above characteristics – pretty cool knowing we aren’t alone lol


  9. Most of us so called “Indigos” see the world for what it is not what people pretend it to be. We “SEE” thur the BS! Do you understand?? Many of us have no problems displaying courage and valor in the face of lies, deception and tyranny! I’ve stood up to criminals in our governmnet and corporations my whole life! The criminal elite have tried many times to destroy me but I believe in truth, love and oneness of humanity. I’ve played ’em at their own game but played it better because of truth, love and humanity of oneness. There is power in being geniune and people pick up on this and feel it, they see it in our eyes, voice and emotions!

  10. Ok…i guess i`v got some answers…i`m an indigo but still i feel like i need to accomplish that `something`!!what is that `something`??Where to look for it??Sometimes i feel like there`s not too much time and i`m still blind of my purpose and i get angry…i feel like looking for that `somethng` in the wrong place!I feel like i`m in the dark looking for the light….i see a sparkle but i can never get closer to it!
    I`v seen a comment like `that`s soo cool`but there`s nothing cool about it!!i don`t think is just a subject to talk about…`wooow i`m special`..indeed indigos are special but for a purpose …i feel it is a big responsability!!I feel like something depends on me and i`m dissapointed of not being able to do what i have to do!!Will i find that `something`????…i apologise if i`v hurt someone`s feelings with that but it just makes me angry when i see people talking about it over and over again without takeing any actions in getting us closer to what we have to do!

    Good luck to everyone!

  11. I STRONGLY believe I am an Indigo as is my son and my grandkids are Crystal kids. Also I have seen (with witnesses) UFO’s at EXTREMELY close range and have experienced missing time (again, with others) missing time during these experiences. I am certain I’ve been abducted throughout my life and am sure I have been implanted with some sort of alien nanobiological implants. I also witnessed my son abducted by same at age ten and am certain the same has happened to my oldest grand daughter. I have memories of my Mother’s Mother introducing me to a grey alien she called Jack when I was 3 or 4. I have rarely spoken of most of this and I NEED to know if you could have someone contact me that is able to help me explore the experiences I have had to the fullest. There are a lot more strange/scary experiences that I have not included as it would take way too long. I am really hoping there is someone that is able to contact me and help me get to understand what has and continues to happen to me to this day. Thank-you, sincerely Murray Smith.
