Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Indigo
Indigo: “The person you are inquiring about is an ‘Indigo,’ meaning a highly sensitive, natural born leader.”
“It is important for you to understand the nature of Indigos, in regard to your question. Perhaps you or someone else involved in this situation is an Indigo or a parent of one. An Indigo is a strong-willed and spirited individual who has strong personal beliefs about changing and improving the world. Indigos may have tempers, which fuel them to move forward with their activist campaigns.
You may have received this card because you are Divinely called to help the Indigos keep their spiritual gifts and missions alive. Many Indigos are misunderstood or misdiagnosed with labels such as ADD or ADHD (attention deficit or hyper-activity disorder) because of their lightening fast thinking stye and intuitive sensitivities.
You can help Indigos maintain high self-esteem and a sense of purposeful direction so that they can use their natural talents to help us all.
Archangel Metatron oversees the Indigo generation, so he is the best angel to call upon for help with issues related to Indigo children and adults. take a few moments to quiet your body and mind, perhaps by closing your eyes and taking some deep breaths. Then silently ask Archangel Metatron any questions you have related to children in general: a specific child; or a person who exhibits Indigo qualities such as sensitivity, strong will, and concern for the earth. Ask Archangel Metatron for guidance with this issue and also for a Divine assignment in which you can help the Indigo generation.”*
I live with a powerful Indigo. He is amazing, and extremely challenging; emotional and fiery and stubborn; yet loving, sweet and affectionate. He tells me things like “You are the best Mommy I have ever had” and “I’m so glad I finally have a Mom who loves crystals.” It can be almost impossible to get thim to change his mind once it’s set on something; he does not like change; needs to know how things work; and challenges his teachers integrity, never mind the lessons. He perceives no difference between people; no matter their age, race, size or colour; he does not recognize authority but sees everyone as his equal. He is fascinated with math and music and knows that Metatron is his angel. It’s quite the ride!
When Indigo’s are growing up, it’s easy for them to exasperate and frustrate people on a regular basis with their often extreme behaviour. They can be accused of being “different” and even end up thinking that something is “wrong” with them for not being calm and, well, easiky influenced! In unstable living environments, they can become anxious and overwhelmed, due to their incredible sensitivity. If they are not given the tools and support they need to cope, they may turn to self-medicating and addictions in later life. They will strive to find their “tribe” if they feel that they don’t fit in anywhere else, and can fall in with the wrong people if they don’t grow up with strong values instilled at an early age… self worth is vital.
Indigos are brilliant and creative and capable and loving and difficult. If you have an Indigo in your life, think of them as a blessing. Love them soul to soul; acceptance and unconditional love is the greatest gift you can give them. Never lie to them as they will know instantly and Indigos cannot tolerate deception. Be true to yourself as this will give them permission to be true to themselves. Take three big, deep breaths before reacting to their tantrum… take ten if you need to! Get them outside! Indigos are wonderful with animals, they feel a deep connection to the Elemental realm, nature and the planet. When they are over-reacting, wait it out and then see if you can get them to hug the nearest tree. Crystals also work wonders and many of this new generation of Indigos cross over into Crystal kids and can work with crystals to create powerful mandalas and grids; they can also feel the healing properties of crystals and work with them intuitively; they can make extraordinary healers.
Most importantly? Have patience, and remember: They are here to change the world, and that’s a pretty tall order, they need our love to help them succeed.
