Within the New Age culture, the term Indigo Children (or "Indigos" or "Star Children"), introduced in the seventies by parapsychologist Nancy Ann Tappe and became popular in 1999 with the publication of "The Indigo Children: the New Kids Have Arrived" by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober, indicates a generation of children with special or supernatural traits and abilities and who came into the world with a specific purpose.
No scientific value is recognized to this theory and although, over the years, numerous testimonies have been collected from parents who claim to find in their children the characteristics of indigos, it is therefore anoverable in the field of so-called "pseudoscience".
The phenomenon theorized by Tappe and made known to the general public for the first time in 1982 with the publication of the book "Understanding Your Life Through Color" is based on the concept of the aura, a thin field of light radiation, invisible to normal perception, which it would surround all living beings, capable of reflecting the soul of the individual to which it belongs and of surviving the decay of its biological life.
Nancy, writer, psychic and therapist able to see what she calls "the colors of life", has developed a very personal method for interpreting these colors: in the 1980s, when some parents, worried about abnormal behavior, "out of patterns "of their children, turned to her for help, she realized that the vital color of all these children tended to purplish blue - hence the definition "Indigo Children "- which would indicate autonomy, genius,resourcefulness, royalty ,anarchist tendencies.
Tappe related this phenomenon with the prelude to a new era of human evolution, in which the indigo color of the aura would be predominant.
These ideas were taken up by the psychic and channeler Lee Carroll and his wife Jan Tober, already famous in the New Age world as spokespersons of the "angelic entity" Kryon, both of whom in their book gave a description of indigo children especially from the point of view of character traits, including numerous elements in which many parents could have seen their children mirrored.
Also in this case, the advent of indigo children heralded an evolutionary leap of humanity and the construction of a new world without wars and without pollution.
Other authors also contributed to the book, some of whom drew attention to the supernatural aspects of the nature of indigo children, in particular by describing their close relationship with angels and other ethereal creatures.
Among the best known supporters of the indigo child theory is Doreen Virtue, former founder of Angel Therapy (a method of spiritual healing that consists of working with the guardian angels and archangels, to heal and harmonize every aspect of life), who announced the advent of a new generation of children following the indigo one, called the "crystal children" (or rainbow children), often the children of ex indigos.
According to the American psychiatrist specialized in hypnotic regression, Dolores Cannon, these children are reincarnated souls, coming from spiritual worlds much higher than ours, who have largely paid off their karmic debt.
Some were forcibly sent, others are volunteers, charged with bringing humanity to a higher level of civilization and consciousness.
They would be endowed with great intelligence, empathy, an innate sense for respect and love for animals and ecological balances, for the defense of justice, for love for all that is beautiful, just and harmonious, both in an external but above all internal sense.
Characteristics of indigo children
Indigo children are described as endowed with strong character qualities or even with paranormal powers such as telepathy, clairvoyance or the ability to communicate with higher entities including angels. In the vision of Carrol and Tober they would be characterized by great empathy, curiosity, creativity, willpower and a marked spiritual inclination, intelligence and intuition.
4 types of indigo children have been identified:
- the Humanist
The most sociable and hyperactive are those children who, when they grow up, will work in contact with people and make themselves available to others (for example doctors and teachers)
- the Conceptual
They are children with strong design skills who will therefore prefer jobs such as engineers or architects. They are generally handsome and sporty but are more at risk of acquiring addictions, especially in adolescence. They try to control their parents more than other types of indigo.
- the Artist
Creative subjects with a sensitive and fragile character. They pass from one thing to another with great ease, getting a little bored and with a great inquiring spirit
- the Interdimensional
Physically more robust and placed. From a very young age, about 2 years, they know very well what their task is and they strive to do everything by themselves. They are the people who will revolutionize philosophies and religions.
By virtue of these peculiarities they would have developed a certain intolerance towards authority and towards respect for the rules of society, therefore the traditional school system generally tends to label them as "problematic subjects".
From these considerations came a strong criticism in the debate on the controversial childhood pathology known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and on the need for drug treatment: Carroll and Tober argued that children treated with ADHD by traditional medicine were in reality only superiorly gifted, in need of particular attention on the spiritual level and not medical care.
The emphasis is above all on the so-called diatribe regarding the administration of Ritalin, one of the drugs belonging to the amphetamine class, prescribed to hyperactive and irritable children by the US medical authorities.
The drug authorized for the treatment of ADHD in subjects with whom simple psychosocial or psycho-behavioral interventions have proved unsatisfactory, is considered useless if not harmful, given the numerous side effects, by the supporters of the "indigo movement", while some psychologists have expressed the concern that the influence of these theories on parents may contribute to delaying or postponing the diagnosis and treatment of even severe mental illnesses or autism spectrum disorders.
There are currently three cases of "recognized" indigo children who have become famous:
- Natalia Demkina (Natasha) - the girl with X-ray vision
- Boris Kipriyanovich (Boriska) - the child from Mars
- Akiane Kramarik - the painter linguist
Indigo children and Ufology
In 1992 the film "Intruders" was released: it, focused on the theme of "alien abductions" with an approach that differs from the usual spectacularization of these topics, reveals an accurate research of the stories dealt with.
Inspired by the life of Dr John Edward Mack, it traced in a likely way the experiences of alien abduction experienced by some American women according to the real testimonies collected by the specialist on the subject Budd Hopkins and introduces the phenomenon of "missing Time" (a time gap of a few hours in the memory that is remembered by the victims only through regressive hypnosis) and of the telepathic communication between extraterrestrials and abductees. In the film appear the “Grey” canons and also the “Nordics” and only at the end is one of the purposes of these kidnappings illustrated: the creation of a hybrid species.
The world of ufology became interested in the phenomenon of indigo children precisely after this film: according to reports written by Hopkins, some women subjected to regressive hypnosis by psychiatrists, said that they were mysteriously transported to strange and unknown places, most likely extraterrestrial ships, where they were subjected to various and strange experiments and to find themselves pregnant after having had a relationship with strange macrocephalic beings of slender build.
Around the third month of pregnancy these women could assist, again by these alleged extraterrestrials, in the removal of their fetus.
Then, through another "E.T.contact" with the so-called "doctor"-a creature of greater stature and considered a leader- the occasion presented itself, for the mother, to know the child, which was shown to her held in her arms or by the same "doctor" or by some other being of the team who, in order to console her, reassured her by telling her that children of this type would constitute the "middle world" that is, the link between aliens and mankind.
The "Starchild" case
Around 1930 a Mexican girl found a deformed skull next to the remains of an adult human woman, in an abandoned mine about 160 km southwest of Chihuahua city.
The American pseudoscientific writer belonging to the current he himself defined "alternative knowledge" and supporter of the theories of Zecharia Sitchin, Lloyd Pye gave the find the name "Starchild", meaning that the anomalous characteristics of the skull were attributable to genetic mutations of an alien-human hybrid , including a probable totally extraterrestrial origin of the same, as it recognized a resemblance to the skull shape typical of the Grey aliens.
According to Pye, the alien "Starchild" was spawned by one of Sitchin's Anunnaki and an Earth woman.
Scientific studies would later demonstrate the impossibility of the veracity of this hypothesis: according to the physical anthropologist John Verano of Tulane University, the skull would be that of a child whose head was "cradle boarded" that is the result of artificial remodeling, a common practice in some Native American cultures.
I always wanted to think that I was an alien.
I used to think when I was young that I was adopted by my mother because they found me in a spaceship like I was from a different planet. I wanted to be from a different planet really bad.
Every night I used to talk to my real parents and my real family in the skies. I knew that there were thousands of other alien babies dropped off. They’re all over the place and I’ve met quite a few of them.
It was something that I always liked to toy with in my mind. It was really fun to pretend that there was some special reason for me to be here and I feel really homesick all the time - so did the other ones.
Not only would I have that chance to come across a handful of other aliens throughout the rest of my life, eventually we’ll find out what we’re supposed to do.
