The Truth about Indigos

I have come across a lot of misinformation and misconceptions about Indigos, most prominent in the 2003 movie Indigo. It was so bad that I watched it just to have a laugh. They were portrayed as robotic, cocky, magical children that could somehow "sense" each other several blocks away. They are commonly known to be more intuitive and different from previous generations, but that movie (along with many so-called experts on the subject) is far from the truth.

So what are Indigos? Well, I was lucky enough to meet Nancy Ann Tappe before she closed her office, the first person that coined the term. She has a "cross" of 2 different senses (synesthesia) and she has the ability to see a person's aura, or energy field. She can tell you a lot about yourself just by looking at you. I've learned so much from her, but I'll get into that some other time. In her own unique way, she can see 3 layers that never change in every person's aura, one of which is the life color. That means anyone with similar abilities would probably see something different.

That means Indigos are just a different type of person, a different kind of energy, but are indeed more intuitive/psychic and equipped for a different world. Nancy started noticing them being born in hospitals since the late 60s, and eventually becoming the majority. The energy of the world has naturally been shifting over to this Indigo energy, which explains why we are having so many conflicts of the old versus the new. (Ironically, blue-jeans became a youth favorite at the same time!) I think of it as nature's way of fixing humanity as Indigos typically want a fairer system with no more bloodshed or pollution, and more freedom.

Indigos have an indigo-colored life color, which are also broken down into 4 different types of Indigos: Humanists, Artists, Catalysts, and Conceptualists. Humanists are the social people; artists are the dramatic, artsy types; catalysts are the rare, amazingly abstract thinkers; and conceptualists are the technical or mechanical think-tanks. Now, these are paraphrased descriptions of generalizations, so if you want to read more about them, read Indigos: The Quiet Storm by Nancy Ann Tappe. After Nancy started using the term, all sorts of "experts" and media popped up, spreading misinformation throughout the New Age realm and beyond. Nancy is the only person I would consider an expert on the subject.

You can also be a combination of 2 types of Indigo. Both my husband and I are Humanist/Artist! So we have characteristics from both types, which definitely sounds right to me.

If you want to find out for sure if you are also an Indigo, you'd have to get Nancy to look at you or a picture of you. Otherwise, I don't think it really matters that much. Don't think of yourself as "less". As long as you are receptive to this energy and do your part in creating a better world, you are being a huge help.
