Help a student out?


My name is Sharon and I am currently taking a course called "Adolescent Rites of Passage" at the New College of California in San Francisco. I was wondering if anybody in this forum might be able to help me with a paper I am doing.

In G.W. Hardin's book, Indigo Rising, he talks about several ways in which parents of Indigo Children can help them create their own rites of passage. I am trying to find anyone who has participated in such a ritual who might be willing to share the experience with me. If so, please email me at:

If I interview you and you're under 18 we'll need to arrange for your parents to sign a consent form. I'm happy to pass on my completed research and answer any questions.

Thanks for your time!

Contemplating the Indigo

Hi, I’m Susan. I’m 21 and in college. I recently came into contact with new age “stuff” and am wondering about it.

My first encounter with it was through my therapist on campus. I usually hate therapy, but this woman is amazing. She started to do Reiki on me during my first visit and has done it a few times after. I felt a lot during those sessions—it wasn’t just because I wanted to, but I really did. I do it with my eyes closed because I feel more focused that way. One day when she was performing Reiki, I shut my eyes and saw the usual spasms of “fireworks” (or whatever the technical name for them is) racing all through my field of vision. This is due to the intensity of my thoughts and lack of concentration. As she waved her hands over my head doing whatever she was with energies, I started to see an eye looking back at me. It wasn’t too detailed, but I knew it was an eye…a single eye. Then all of a sudden, little purple squiggly lines appeared snaking all through my field of vision like a lava lamp. I couldn’t see any other color except that color. I didn’t tell my therapist because I didn’t want her to think I was making it up though I know she’d trust me.

Anyway, I saw her last Friday but didn’t do any Reiki. Instead, we were talking about my past and then we got into how I never feel like I fit in. I don’t WANT to fit in, I just want to have at least one person I can identify with. I told her how I feel the pain of everyone around me and it becomes too much of a burden sometimes. She responded that it’s because I’m an Indigo child. I wasn’t familiar with this term much. She told me to research it and I did. I had already been researching chakras and the like, so it interested me more so. I don’t know how you “assess” who is an indigo and who isn’t since I saw that someone posted that everyone thinks they are one. All I know is that what I read and several detailed quizzes I took on auras pointed me in the direction of feeling like I could identify with the indigos. That’s why I’m here: to figure out how other people feel about it and to talk about it. Admittedly, I’ve also been very depressed lately and have been trying to figure out what to do. That’s why I initially started to see the therapist. I was diagnosed with type II bipolar disorder 2 years ago and this year, some professors suspect I have ADHD. I really like school and can do the work; I just get bored and distracted and feel that most of it is menial. I’m seeking some answers or at least some support. I have pretty strong self-awareness, I just feel alone and can’t seem to find common ground even though I’ve tried many times.


Anyway, sorry for the sleuth of info. I just want to have a discussion with people who are seemingly like-minded ;)

No one take any offense, but...

Does anyone else here KNOW that they are an indigo, no doubt about it, and yet they still suspect that half of this is a load of BS? I've been feeling very much this way lately.

How many of you found yourself in advanced classes (whatever subject) or advanced programs in school?

I often found myself in advanced/honors programs in school.

Right before I started school, the school I was attending had just cut from their budget a "Gifted and Talented Students" program. (This was not a special needs/learning disabled group, this was for advanced learners who found "regular" classroom activities not challenging enough.) I had come into the school in the fall, just after the program had been cut, but my kindergarten teacher (who supported the G&T class) told my parents that I would have definitely been in it. (I only just learned of this story from my mother...)

All throughout school I found myself in advanced classes for reading, writing, and art of all kinds (especially music). However, I can barely do math.

(Also, for what it's worth, since there seems to be a lot of discussion like "Am I Indigo & how can I tell?" -- I consider myself Indigo although I deviate from the Indigo stereotype in few ways. For example, I was never considered ADD/ADHD or learning disabled in anyway, nor am I considered "rebellious" towards authority or anyone, really. Independent, yes. But "rebellious"?? Well not in the way I think of being a rebel at least. ;))

I'm not entirely sure who to consult about this, so I'm just going to put it out there and desperately hope for a reply.

My name is Stephanie. I am 19 years old, and I think I was/am a crystal child. I know, I know, everyone thinks he or she is psychic and indigo and crystal these days, but here's a little background.

My grandmother practices "witchcraft" for lack of a better word. Her religion stems from her Cherokee roots, and also contains aspects of pantheism, spiritualism, and she takes part in various rituals.
When I was very, very young, my grandmother began making me a part of her rituals. She would chant, burn incense and herbs, perform blessings, and the like. I was never hurt, and I was never uncomfortable. But I did not understand her beliefs or what was happening to me.
I see spirits, auras, and can "feel" the emotions of everyone around me. I do not remember if these things started with my grandmother's prayers, or if they existed before. Quite frankly, I was so young that I do not remember a time when I did not experience these things. As a small child, I was so disturbed by the spirits I saw and the intense emotions I felt, that I was diagnosed with Selective Mutism at age 4.
I am very pale. I had white hair (now just very light blonde) as a child, and un-proportionally large blue eyes. I'm not sure if this is important. My grandmother used to tell me that I was destined. Special. She even went as far as to say that my aura is "crystalline," long before I understood the term.
I have grown a great deal spiritually. I have learned to deal with the things I see and feel, and I have strengthened my abilities. While my beliefs do not exactly mimick my grandmothers, we do share a great respect of energies, spirits, and empathy.
Here is the problem I am faced with:
As far as I have read, Crystal Children are limited to beings under the age of seven. I have always known that I was different. I fit the description (albeit broad) of a crystal child to a tee. Is it possible for Crystal Children to exceed age 7 (as I am 19)?
ANY AND ALL replies will be greatly appreciated. And any information anyone can provide.

So, I don't know if I'm an indigo child or not, but that's not really the point.  As I read through the qualities and purpose of an Indigo Child I had a couple of questions.  Indigo Children are supposed to break down old systems, right?  They are supposed to challenge authority and change the world, yes?  So then my question is, which system is being challenged?  Which system is being broken down?  And what are the indigo children doing about it?  Isn't the point of this livejournal community to band together?  To become a force of change and support?  What can I/we/you to change the world we live in?  Any ideas? 


Tell me the truth about love; real love. It's like I'm nauseous and I can't throw up- there's no relief.

Hi all, I have just in the last few days opened my own spiritual forums. This is your chance to be in from the start since everything has literally just been started. All the topics and sections are on, and there will be a chatroom and hopefully classes in the near future. Oh...and there is a section for Indigos and lightworkers. Hope a few of you might join, it is all free of course.

Hello You All :)

Since the topic just recently came up, I researched it a little more and found a very small community devoted to 11:11 and times that match, or consecutive numbers. I figured it may be of interest to those of us that see this quite frequently everywhere.

And perhaps of interest to those of you that don't, but want to know about it.

Join me :) the_1111
