When I first came to this section of the forum I had no idea what to expect. The terminology meant nothing to me. As people have been kind enough to answer my inquiries and I have started to do a little research, I realize that all these descriptions fit me to a T.
With the exception of "Gifts". I don't have much in the way of gifts. I remember developing some of a psychic ability at a young age but when my mother learned of them she forbid me to use it believing it to be Evil. And from that time I sort of lost touch and it has existed in but small infrequent bursts ever since. Only recently have I decided I would like to try to strengthen that aspect of myself.
Other than that I have a tiny artistic inclination for writing and sketching mostly.
Been struggling constantly with this desire to change the world. To help people see the beauty and potential for greatness we possess as human beings. Longing more than anything for us to peaceably and universally come to embrace ideals of brotherhood, equality, goodness, compassion, love and respect towards all things; to learn to live in harmony with one another, our earth and all it's inhabitants. For people to learn to look beyond judgment based on bias, religious practice, sexual preference, political party, etc... To learn to see people as they are in spirit. To help each individual recognize their own capacity for good. To help them see their own worth amongst society. To comfort and heal the burdensome senses of worthlessness and loneliness society imposes on the ill, the elderly, the poor and suffering, to aid those who are incapable of doing so themselves. That the well off may lend a hand to the worse off knowing that wealth is only temporary and one day when they are at their worst they may need a lending hand, a meal, a shoulder to cry on, or a friend.
In response to a lot of the stuff I am reading in this section, condemning people for embracing this as a part of themselves. I would like to say in advance that being "Indigo" is not what makes a person special. That you finally feel like you are not alone in this world is kind of nice. It is not about being better than anyone it is about belonging. Certainly anyone who is indeed Indigo realizes this is not a blissful existence. It is a lot of struggle both internal and external. Trying to find your place in a world that for the most part does not accept or care to understand that which is not like themselves. As I have a difficult time melding personality wise with most people I find it highly unlikely I would be more able to hit it off with a group of "Indigos" I do however respect that they too have desires like mine to see the world come through all this hate, murder, greed, misuse and mistreatment of our world and it's creatures; that we want to show people a greater potential that we all possess is honorable to me. I can most certainly relate.
In the end, I am not really asking if I am. That I am or am not is less important to me than that I never loose sight of my goals. That it may not happen in my life time is not a deterrent it is about making that tiny ripple. Trying to make sure that power of goodness is never lost from those who are the pinnacles amongst humanity: (in no particular order) Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Cesar Chavez, Albert Einstein, The Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, there are so many...
I have very much enjoyed learning what these terms mean and that they mean something to me too.
And to all you Indigos out there, Let's Change the World!
Thank you and bless you,
