13 Indigo Children Traits & Signs of a New Age Revolutionary

Indigo children walking down the road

What is an Indigo Child?

An Indigo Child or Indigo Kid is an upgraded blueprint of humanity, a term that came up when addressing the aura colors of these very different kids. Previously, auric fields were expected shades of the rainbow, but the Indigos’ field was dominated by a royal blue color. Thus, establishing a change of course in human evolution and their indigo aura.

Gifted children, on a clear mission to challenge and shift reality, they first began appearing in the 1970s. Beyond psychic awareness, they are highly driven and creative with a perception that sees through the established norms of society. Old souls indeed, their mission is clearly laid out to shake up the modern world and pave the way for future generations to create greater peace and harmony for all.

Both of these generations of “children” are well into their teens and adulthood, so don’t allow the label to dissuade you from exploring the concept of Indigo Children.

13 Common Traits of Indigo Children

If you wonder if you might be of this distinct soul lineage, here are a few personality traits that may feel familiar.

spiritual awakening spiritual growth

1. You Feel Spiritually Awakened

You were born to be a lightworker and have felt from a young age that you’re tapped into something spiritually greater than most people are.

2. You Are Destined to Be Here

You are confident and even arrogant at times – and emboldened by something larger than you can name. You know that you were put on this planet for a reason and that reason is to enact positive change. You know that those who are native to this planet are growing and ascending and need help in their transformation.

3. You Have High Expectations of Yourself and Others

This can make for challenging relationships and interactions. You see only the best and expect others to live up to it. Toward yourself, you can be unrelentingly self-critical. Don’t let this get the best of you, instead use it to your advantage to push yourself and others, but also know that others may not be as motivated.

4. You Have a Strong Intuition

Indigos see the world differently. Coupled with innate-self assurance, you often think your way is right and are offended if others cannot see, much less take action, from your point of view. If Indigos ruled the world, you are confident no problems would exist.

5. You Question Authority

You are not one to negotiate, so certain in your views and ways, you are often rebellious and a skeptic of those in power. This can occasionally get you in trouble, so know how to get into the good and noble types of trouble.

6. You Want to Overturn the Man

Difficult and rigid systems seem foolish to you and you often become antagonistic to what others experience as normal. These systems may also seem antiquated compared to those you know and believe are much more effective. Have patience and know that these massive systems that need changing are like giant ships that can’t always turn on a dime.

7. You are Creative

Musically and artistically gifted, your art invites others to see the world around through your eyes. Nurture this ability, 

8. You are a Change Maker

You’re so aware of the failings of society which, in turn, makes you a magnificent leader. You’re always finding new and better methods of business, society, and ways of existing within the chaos of a society that is growing and evolving. 

9. You are a Lost Soul

You feel out of place with others as you recognize you are different than most people. You can tend toward being a loner or rebel, unwilling to compromise just to fit in.

10. You are Headstrong

As the Indigo soul mission is encoded in your very being, you know your self-worth, you are unwilling to back down from confronting what feels out of integrity.

11. You are Passionate and Focused

While fiery temperaments may be hard to take, you are not one to be still or silenced. These two traits should and do balance each other, as too much unchecked passion can lead to negative outcomes. Nurture these traits and use them in conjunction with each other.

12. You Have Psychic Abilities

Without any need for development, your psychic capacity (clairvoyance, empath, telepathy) is finely tuned. While you see nothing special in your ability, it gives you an advantage in reading others with ease and seeing through masks. 

13. You are Frustrated

Coupled with their big-picture vision and restless soul drive for change, you become easily frustrated with society and others who are not shifting quickly enough. Patience is something that should be developed.

Challenges of the Indigo

Not everyone born of this generation carries this new blueprint. The early few were known as “scouts,” testing out the climate to see if more souls could be ushered in. Nor should we assume being an Indigo is something to be idealized. Far from it! Beyond the responsibility such a distinction will carry, we have also witnessed the drive of the Indigos to be paralyzing at times.

Shifting Purpose

Indigo children are destined to make changes, to challenge society, and to be loud in what they see as the flaws in the system. When this mission is complete, they have to shift life purpose quite drastically. Those who are thrown off their life path early, that is to say, their push for progress is thwarted or forgotten, often turn in on themselves.

ADHD

Indigos are often treated for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and prescribed drugs such as a Ritalin to calm them of a perceived irregularity. In reality, indigos are just dealing with the pressure of being trapped in these earthly bodies with the added pressure of helping humanity in some greater capacity.

Depression

We have witnessed many Indigos deep in depression, low self-esteem, addictions, and even suicide. So strong is this governing battering ram, it can turn inward when they are unable to create the changes they are adamant need to be made. The worst outcome for an Indigo is to be ignored or mocked… for their perception is hawk-like and they are able to foresee the pitfalls and are compelled to drive change at massive levels.

Indigo adults are even more susceptible to depression as they become older, especially if they have the perception that they haven’t been able to enact significant change in the world. Indigo adults should find others like them in these situations and form support groups or know that there are others out there struggling too.

Integrity

Of the most blessed attributes of the Indigo Children is their integrity. They carry it within and can sense when others are dishonest. They may not always see this as a gift, for the world can be corrupt and indifferent. However, they carry a deep knowing they are “right” even though, if pressed, they may not be able to explain their assuredness.

Starseeds

Crystal children, Rainbow children, and Star children are all different manifestations or variations of Indigos. Crystal children are believed to be the offspring of Indigos, while a Starseed is the overarching term for a soul from another part of the universe who has been incarnated here on Earth.

How the 7 Seals of Consciousness Can Tell You Who You Are

The term “consciousness” is frequently heard these days, with everyone from spiritual leaders to yoga teachers to healing practitioners talking about the need to “raise your consciousness.” Do you even know what consciousness means? In our last article we shared that YOU are the only one who can raise your consciousness – you can’t rely on anyone else to do that for you.

Consciousness is thought. It is the way you think. It is your vantage point. Everyone has consciousness. Every one is made from consciousness. Everyone has low stages of consciousness and high stages of consciousness. These are just vantage points of thought and they hold different vibrations to them.

Most humans like to think that they are of very high consciousness, or at a minimum, that they are of far higher consciousness than most other people. But how do you know this for sure? We’d like to share with you our knowledge of the Seven Seals of Consciousness.

All reality is created from consciousness and energy, or thought and emotion. Everyone’s life is a demonstration of their consciousness and emotions. In the human experience, there are seven primary vantage points or perspectives from which you create your reality. Each of these seven levels (or Seals) displays certain traits and characteristics, or ways of reacting or being.

A Roadmap to Your Soul

The Seals are descriptions of vantage points that have either held you bound in resistance or which can finally release you into full abundance and creativity. Humans are mostly not taught (or don’t remember) that they have the ability to move through the various Seals of Consciousness to resolve issues in their life and to master the human physical experience so that everything moves fluidly.

By following the descriptions of the Seven Seals of Consciousness, you will finally be able to determine who you are. This is the elusive answer that so many humans are seeking. Once you determine that, you may move freely in any direction that YOU choose. No one chooses that for you. You have the empowerment to make the shifts in your life. The Seven Seals are a roadmap – a roadmap inwards that will take you into connection with your Soul.

We provide in-depth, comprehensive teaching on the Seven Seals of Consciousness. Here though is a brief overview of the key characteristics of each of the Seals. Each Seal also has a color associated with it. The coloration of the Seal of Consciousness is not the same as the Energy Frequency Bands (often referred to as the aura. We will cover more on that in a later discussion, but for now, let’s review each of the Seven Seals.

First Seal of Consciousness

  • Color: Brown
  • Name of Seal: Sub-Consciousness
  • Key Traits: Reproduction and Survival

Description: Humans residing in the first Seal of Consciousness primarily exhibit thoughts and attitudes that revolve around survival (looking out for #1), reproduction (concern with mating and bloodlines), rituals (e.g., superstition), and competition (the need to be the best). Reactive behavior based on disconnection from Source. Forty percent of humans reside in the First Seal.

Second Seal of Consciousness

  • Color: Red
  • Name: Social Consciousness
  • Key Traits: Control, Tyranny, Herd-Like Behavior

Description: In this Seal humans are still deeply seated in the belief of disconnection from Source. Displaying a “safety in numbers” mentality; not thinking for oneself and conforming to the views of the majority. Following guidelines and requirements set out by the community, church, government, and education system. Thirty percent of humans reside in the Second Seal.
