My mother says she always thought I was an “indigo child” and stumbled upon a link about it today. I actually had read a book a few years ago called Indigo Children and it was very relatable. This would definitely help explain alot of how I am to people. The whole “third eye” thing reminded me of something though. When I had my daughter the first nurse we had was horrible. Harsh, abrasive and just nasty to everyone. Well she went off duty and the next nurse came in and was much better. But just before the labor went into overdrive, she came in to tell us she was being sent home. I was worried the next nurse would be terrible but she ended up being amazing. Every contraction she kept telling me to “focus through the pain with my third eye” and would rub her finger in the center of my forehead. Between her and my husband I had an amazing birthing team (that, and all the other family there cheering me on). Afterwards one of my sister in laws mentioned that she thought my grandfather sent that nurse to us. My other sister in law got all the birthing team’s names for me while I was being stitched and tended to and made sure of this particular nurse’s name with several other staff members. So I sent her a thank-you card after we got home but it came back “unknown”. Now, surely one of the other nurses would have recognized it and even if she wasn’t there anymore someone would know how to forward it to her…the overnight nurse had told us before she left that this nurse had been there doing this there for over 25 years! I still wonder sometimes if she was an angel sent to us. It’s funny because I had been so upset that the doctor from my practice that was on call that night was the one I didn’t like and who didn’t like the whole natural childbirth approach. He was an asshole and real cocky. Well after hours of nothing progressing, right after this nurse came things started moving really quickly. It went so quickly that the OB I didn’t like didn’t even have time to get there before I delivered. The resident doctor (and mostly this amazing nurse) delivered my baby. And all along her reminding me to channel my energy and focus with my “third eye” through it all. It may sound weird to people but it definitely helped. So laugh if you want about my “three eyes” but I’m digging it. 🙂
For those interested in reading more about this, below is the recent link I mentioned.
Who resonates with this? I think I have a little Indigo at home…
Indigo children are those who are believed to represent a higher state of human evolution. The term itself is a reference to the belief that such children have an indigo colored aura. The color indigo represents the chakra of the third eye, which is associated with intuition, and paranormal abilities such as seeing angels, spirits or deceased loved ones. They are highly emphatic, possessing the ability to discern what others are thinking and feeling. Thus they have the ability to know when someone is being authentic, honest and truthful. Indigo children are highly sensitive beings with a clear sense of self-definition and a strong feeling that they need to make a significant difference in the world. They are strong-willed, independent thinkers who prefer to be self-guided rather than directed by others.
They are unique in the way they see things and will not conform in order to fit into society. Indigo’s possess wisdom and a high level of awareness “beyond their years.” When you look into their eyes you can see that they are old souls, and wise ones. They can be very outspoken, speaking to an Indigo is like talking to a miniature adult of sorts! They are often diagnosed with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). They have a tendency to become unsociable when not around others of like mind. They are also prone to depression and sleep disorders such as insomnia and persistent nightmares. Indigo’s tend to be more visual, kinesthetic learners so remember best what they can picture in their brain and create with their hands. They are highly energetic people so movement is required to keep them better focused. They love to talk and explain things. They tend to be very animated and dramatic.They have a very difficult time sitting still unless they are doing something they find valuable. The Indigo’s life purpose is to bring awareness that the old systems no longer work and rally for change. They possess a low tolerance for people and systems that are not authentic and authority without a good cause or reason. They become very angry, frustrated and will act out if they sense injustice. Because they are so highly sensitive they tend to a have lot of allergies to foods, and environmental toxins, and this can cause them to become off balanced easily. Indigo’s need to learn how to maintain balance in their lives. When surrounded by a lot of negativity, anger, loud, noisy places and things of this sort, they will become imbalanced and will absorb the negativity and begin to act out in an angry way or become very introverted and have difficulty coming out of their shell.
