I’m an Indigo Child – what the ef is that?

I've never really believed in anything beyond our reality; primarily because I am a sceptic and secondly because it hurts my brain to think about the science. My beliefs and blissful ignorance were shattered, however, when I started experiencing many unusual things.

Please don’t burn me for witchcraft, but I am an indigo child (well, indigo adult).

Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking… What (the ef) is an indigo child? Some sort of blue/purply coloured child?

The term “indigo children” originated from Nancy Ann Tappe, who classified people’s personalities according to the colour of their auras. Aura’s are the distinctive atmosphere that seems to surround and be generated by a person.

Indigo children are known to be born after 1978 and are thought to have an inner knowing that exceeds psychic abilities. As old reincarnated souls, their mission is to find out the truth and break down the patterns of traditional thinking.

The term describes a group of souls that are returning to the earth in large numbers. Indigo adults are thought to be incredibly passionate about their beliefs, known as “system busters” here to change the way for future generations. Beyond psychic awareness, they are highly driven and creative with a perception that sees through the established norms of society.

Supposedly, angels reach indigo adults through their thoughts. No words are exchanged; the conversations are telepathic (if you believe in that kind of stuff).

Have I lost you yet? If you’re anything like me (a few months ago), with eyes that roll over to the back of your head whenever you hear words like “reincarnation” or “spirits”, then keep reading.

It’s probably easier if I start at the beginning of my life.

As a child, my family described me as innately headstrong, stubborn, defiant and strong-willed.

I rejected authority and systems (of all kinds) and did not like following rules. Instructions like ‘do as you are told’ or ‘wait until your father get’s home’, had absolutely no effect on me.

Some would have said that I was insightful beyond my years, full of questions and demands, always wanting to understand the interconnectedness of everything.

I had imaginary friends and could entertain myself, in my own world for hours. At times, I would act strangely, displaying almost possessed-like qualities and frequently experienced night terrors, panic attacks and insomnia from a young age.

About five years ago I realised many strange things happening around me.

◈ My ears would ring all of the time when I was around others, but not a sweet humming, more like people screaming in my head.

◈ Energy and environments would drain me; I felt like I could feel the energy around me.

◈ I would have dreams about things, and a lot of the time those dreams would happen.

◈ When I ate meat, it didn’t taste the same as it always had and I felt sadness running through my body. I also started having weird food intolerances that were new to me.

◈ Bright lights became my enemy; they would burn my eyes and cause extreme disorientation.

◈ My hearing was amplified, and I felt like I could hear people’s thoughts before they spoke.

◈ World issues (inequality, immigration policies, racism, war, poverty, climate change, injustice, systems and sexism) became incredibly overwhelming and I developed a strong urge to change them.

◈ Electronics and electricity affected me in strange ways; I caused many light bulbs to blow, street lights to flicker, computers to breakdown and I was constantly giving people electric shocks.

◈ Darkness, smoke and shadows would follow me around at home.

Until recently, scientists believed that the brain couldn’t function after the heart stops beating. It is a controversial subject which has created widespread scepticism.

However, scientists at the University of Southampton (UK) spent four years examining more than 2,500 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the UK, US and Austria. These are their findings:

◈ 40% of individuals who survived described some awareness during the time when they were clinically dead before their hearts restarted.

◈ Conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating, even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped.

So, consciousness after brain function is proven. Does that mean reincarnation is possible?

Whether you believe in the concepts of indigo children or reincarnation, there is no denying that each new generation that is coming forward is helping to guide humanity in a better direction.
