(no subject)

Hey! I'm thrilled to have found this community! About three years ago I read a book about aura colors and found I scored highest in indigo, blue, and crystal. A year or so later my therapist suggested that I was an Indigo Child and that I should look into it, last June I met with a psychic and she said I was an Indigo, and lately my therapist believes I am a Platinum Indigo. So!

Without further adieu...
I'm Jill, I'm 20 and I live in Cleveland. I went to Earlham College in Indiana for a year and 1/3 (heh) and knew it just wasn't the right place for me. I kept getting extremely depressed and it was just a horrible situation. So I've been living at home with my parents and 16 year old sister (NOT Indigo, oh man haha) and working. I'm going to be taking classes at a local community college this year and hopefully saving up money because next August I'm moving to Boulder, CO. to go to school at Naropa University. Anyone heard of it? It was founded by beat poets and is based in buddhism. Everything there is "different" and I am sooo excited to go! I'll be majoring in Contemplative Psychology.

I just went on a book-shopping spree today and one of the books I ended up getting was The Indigo Children which as I've scrolled through the community, most seem familiar with. I told my mom she should read it because I'm an Indigo and that a lot of the kids she teaches probably are too (she's a pre-school teacher). I hope she does, and I hope she sees me in a "new light" so to speak. She probably will ignore the fact I said I was an Indigo though, and just focus on her preschoolers. Whatever, as long as she at least tries to understand it is good enough for me.

Oh, question. Are any of you familiar with Platinum Indigos? My therapist went to a workshop a few months ago about Indigos (her 3 sons are) and she told me she thinks I am a platinum. I guess they said that Platinum Indigos were people who died in the 60's and 70's from either drugs or fighting in the Vietnam War. Most came straight back into bodies, not spending the "normal" amount of time souls usually do in the spiritual rhelm. I'd love to know more about this.

I'm always curious about what aspects of spirituality and psychology people are into and/or aware of. So here's a list of books that I own and/or read and I would love to know who's also read them and what you think about them!
