I'm not sure if I am or ever was an indigo, but I kind of felt like it since I heard of it years ago.. My Astrological North Node and Chaldean Numerology birthdate number tell me the same thing basically so I may be biased, but then again the main problem with most people is that they just don't love or know and care for themselves truly enough.. even though I've been villainized or demonized by many for speaking up and sharing important truths to try to help people, I still like to think overall that most people who know me or meet me can see that I genuinely care about people and want to make their lives better. so some may do it better than me, but if I am an Indigo it is part of my mission to show people how to consider each other and love unconditionally, meanwhile I am not doing it for myself sufficiently so maybe that is why some are unconvinced but anyways I am tired of weird low vibration drama and trauma.. so I know building myself up and putting me first is what I need to do to finally have the peaceful life I deserve. and it can be painful to put yourself first or actually do things just cuz they could benefit you, and if you haven't been present with yourself then you are gonna doubt and demean yourself even more and so finding the courage and connection to embrace your dreams is the other main thing an Indigo has to or should do
Thanks for commenting
I really appreciated your opening sentiment about maintaining compassion.
As to why I post in the Indigo section - it is merely due to the simple fact that when I was going through my awakening, the topic was brought to me through synchronicity and it basically was just a reminder to me of my soul imprint. I've had many visions of being in an 'ascended' place and planning my life here with ascended beings.
When I hear the term indigo... It was like something I already knew in my heart and gut and it was simply being confirmed.
It was like I was being told my name very matter of fact lol... It just fit.
For me it was as matter of fact as me knowing I am queer... Or a person knowing they are gay... It is just a knowing.
So I think if you had that sense of knowing already... Just own it, it's not like it's harming anyone and if it helps you make sense of your own souls journey then own it.
There seem to be a lot of lessons about accepting the world the way it is, self expression, and honouring diversity of being as an indigo.
I certainly do not fit well into any boxes and I'm not meant to. I feel misunderstood alot but there is a lesson in self acceptance in that.
I think that the rest of the world only really starts to listen to us when we accept and honour ourselves first.
I think that regardless of accepting the world as it is, I will always be looking for ways to make the world a kinder and more beautiful place, that is as much a part of me as anything else.
So I will accept the world as it and I will also nourish the beauty which I can imagine into being. I do this rather selfishly now... I nurture beautiful things because they in turn nourish me... I am happier still if those things also happen to create more happiness in the world.
I was not sure how best to reply to your post sapphirez, so I'd like to leave this comment by simply saying that I appreciate your input and thank you.
