Yes, You can be an adult Indigo. They did not JUST start coming in now, the numbers have just been increasing more and more until there are so many we finally can not ignore them. Yeay!!! Are you an adult Indigo?

I believe Adult Indigos have these characteristics:

  • Are intelligent (though did not necessarily have top grades).
  • Are very creative and enjoy making things.
  • Always need to know WHY (especially why they are being asked to do something).
  • Had disgust and perhaps loathing for the inanity of much of the required work in school, the repetition.
  • Were rebellious in school, refusing to do homework, rejecting authority of teachers OR seriously wanted to rebel, but didn't DARE, usually due to parental pressure.
  • May have experienced early existential depression and feelings of helplessness. These may have ranged from sadness to utter despair. Suicidal feelings while still in high school or younger are not uncommon in the Indigo Adult.
  • Have difficulty in service-oriented jobs - resistance to authority and caste system of employment.
  • Prefer cooperative efforts or leadership position or solo if expertise is valued.
  • Have deep empathy for others, yet an intolerance of stupidity.
  • Extremely emotionally sensitive including crying at the drop of a hat (no shielding) - to no expression of emotion (full shielding).
  • May have trouble with RAGE.
  • Have trouble with most systems (either emotionally, mentally, or physically)- political, educational, medical, law.
  • Alienation from politics - feeling your voice won't count and that the outcome really doesn't matter anyway.
  • Frustration with or rejection of the traditional American dream - 9-5 career, marriage, 2.5 children, house with white picket fence, etc.
  • Anger at rights being taken away, fear and/or fury at "Big Brother watching you."
  • They feel a need like a burning desire to do something to change and improve the world. May be stymied what to do.
  • Have psychic or spiritual interest fairly young - in or before teen years.
  • Had few if any Indigo role models.
  • Have strong intuition.
  • Random behavior pattern or mind style - (symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder), may have trouble focusing on a task unless of OWN choosing, may jump around in conversations.
  • Have had psychic experiences, such as premonitions, seeing angels or ghosts, hearing voices.
  • Sexually expressive and inventive OR may reject sexuality in boredom. May explore alternate types of sexuality.
  • Seek meaning to their life and understanding about the world May seek this through religion, spiritual groups and books, self-help groups or books, or individually.
  • If they find balance they may become very strong, healthy, happy lightworkers.

These are my opinion based on the discussions with other Indigo adults and my extrapolation from child indicators projected back a generation. I am open to other ideas for indicators as well as disagreements with these. Please write me if you would like to discuss them or make suggestions. I WELCOME your input!

Ah yes.. I agree Incarnation.

Yeah this sounds like me and I also have autism too.

You know, I think people with autism 'know something' ... I have always thought that, if I were a professional psychologist, I would explore 'autism' for my own growth sake  ... I think it is the strong 'inner' thing. I imagine that there are connectons that the average person doesn't do. Great that you shared it, thank you!!!!

Yeah but I absolutely HATE being autistic. I wished I was normal. Being this way has brought me nothing but heartache and frustration.

Very interesting...I can see some of these traits in myself, my sister, my daughter and my nephew.....

Indigoes/starseeds have been turning up for millenia, but never in such high numbers as since the 19th century. My father undoubtedly was one, as were my mother and one of her brothers. There are many just in my family lineage over the past several centuries.

Very interesting comments from everyone. Definitely a popular posting   

I almost began crying, reading this! I am in my sixties now and was a very lonely and isolated child, even though I am number seven in a family of ten children. My solace was to believe that I was a changeling, even though I was a bit pissed that the fairies left me! My children are clearly indigo children and my grandchildren are crystals. I feel like they think they are so far advanced that I don't understand. In reality, I see them repeating so much that i already knew. Does anyone else share this experience? My parents used to beat me for stating my spirituality, when I was a small child. 

I am sorry to hear that your parents felt they had to beat you sweet Kat.  It is a beautiful thing for a child to speak their honest truths. 

Yeahwl! (I mean big yes and thank you!) :-)

Hi Kat, I loved what I read from your comment (this is 50% of the energy I have)... (The other 50% is that) I have many weird stories to tell, too ... these folks are funny ... I am glad you have the 2 next generations to observe and enjoy ... I have one next generation, my son, to observe and compare/relate to ... and all that jazzy blablabla that I love and complain about sometimes. A book - 'The prophet' by Khalil Gibran ... the whole thing, especially the part when 'she asks him to talk about the children' ... I don't remember the chapter now and I don't have the book with me, but I am sure you are going to love it. Much Love!  

Reading this makes so much sense to me, and especially how I was growing up.

This helps me "seek meeaning to my life"  :)

Thank you!!
