Musings of the Chronologically Challenged™ Fourth Generation

Long before Chuck ushered me into "blogging", a Native American Hunkpapa Sioux woman said to me, "You are an Indigo Child." I had heard of Indigo Children, but had only a vague concept of what they were. After some research, I realized what a great compliment had been bestowed upon me by the kind woman. When Chuck was guiding me through the rudiments of registering for Blogspot and asked what to name the site, the name Indigo Insights spontaneously came as my response. I don't know from where.
Anyhow, without further prologue, here's the result of one web search on Indigos. This is from the book Aura Colors by Pamala Oslie. If you're interested in checking out your own aura color, see here. It's kinda/sorta a New Age Quizilla! Fun to contemplate. And, yes, before you opine, see the third paragraph; specifically, this sentence: "Some consider Indigos to be bizarre." heh
Indigo is the most recent aura color to arrive on the planet. Indigos are ushering in a new energy, a new consciousness, and a new age of peace and harmony. Whereas Violets feel driven to help save the planet, to educate the masses, and to improve life here, Indigos are here to live as examples of a new higher awareness.
At this writing, most of the Indigos are children, although there are a few Indigos who came as forerunners years ago. The words used to describe Indigos include honest, aware, highly intuitive, psychic, independent, fearless, strong-willed, and sensitive.
Indigos are old souls who know who they are and where they've come from. Some consider Indigos to be bizarre. These assertive individuals are born with their spiritual memories intact. Many parents report that their Indigo children regale them with vivid details of past lives or recent encounters with spiritual beings. Parents also report that these children can read their minds and seem to have amazing psychic abilities. Parents are often at a loss as to how to raise these amazing little beings.
An unusual characteristic of Indigos is that they frequently appear androgynous. It is often difficult to tell if Indigos are male or female, homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, or asexual. It's as if Indigos have both the yin and yang, male and female qualities within them. Their sexuality is not their primary concern however; it is their spirituality.
OK. Now all two of you who inquired know from whence the name came.
