"Indigo Children" the arrival and development

Post by Admin on Mon Jul 21, 2008 6:17 am

Hi All,

Lets have a quick look at this subject from simple resources which are available. From Wikipedia I draw the following history.

"The term Indigo children originates from the 1982 book "Understanding Your Life Through Color," by Nancy Ann Tappe, a self-styled synesthete and psychic, who claimed to possess the ability to perceive people's auras. She wrote that during the late 1970s she began noticing that many children were being born with "indigo" auras. Today, she estimates that 60 percent of people age 14 to 25 and 97 percent of children under ten are "Indigo."

The idea of Indigo children was later popularized by the 1998 book The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, written by the husband-and-wife team of Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.[3] According to Carroll he learned about the concept of indigo children while channeling a being known as Kryon, Master angelic energy. Tober has said that she and Carroll do not talk much about Kryon in interviews because they see this as being a potential barrier to them reaching out to mainstream audiences that exist outside of the New Age movement."

I have a fair amount of difficulty with the Kryon Channellings which seem to be well in line with much of the recent ascended master material but taking on a new name. Again we have a select group of special people involved. I note there are now 3 Kryon groups 2 under license from the original ones.

Aditionally it is my clear understanding that the Aura does not reflect one colour but reflects the colours thet relate to the energy that is flowing through you, your state of peace or anger. Just in terms of timing it does not fit Spiritualism and if you look at the supposed "special group and miraculous changes in the chosen ones" it is at variance with the teachings we receive from Spirit.

It is clear that many like the concept and are truly pleased to have their children called Indigo. It appears that in many ways this gives an acceptable reference for behavious patterns which can be prescribed as Austism, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). It gives an attractive explanation for children with problems which can seem a magic bullet ignoring the very real elements of modern life that can create the aforementioned problems.

Again from Wikipedia "According to psychiatric expert Russell Barkley, the New Age movement has yet to produce empirical evidence of the existence of Indigo children and the 17 traits most commonly attributed to them were so vague they could describe "most of the people most of the time" and put him in mind of the Forer effect ( The Forer Effect ,also called personal validation fallacy or the Barnum Effect after P. T. Barnum's observation that 'we've got something for everyone', is the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people. The Forer Effect can provide a partial explanation for the widespread acceptance of some pseudosciences such as astrology and fortune telling, as well as many types of personality tests). Barkley also expressed concern that labeling a disruptive child an "indigo" may delay proper diagnosis and treatment that may help the child. Others have advised that many of the traits of indigo children could be more prosaically interpreted as simple arrogance and selfish individualism, which parents with certain New Age beliefs see as being something that they are not." Barkley is one of the worlds leading experts on ADHD.

Of course hand in hand with Kryon and the Indigo's come the ascension movements magical restructure of the strands of DNA to create a magical change. Now I know that parents can change the DNA passed onto children in specific circumstances, an affect recorded in a drought stricken farm community but the effect is not of the new super stranded material being channeled by the 'Ascended Masters". Indeed there is no scientific evidence of this despite the human genome project.

I guess for me Indigo Childern and the Ascended Masters require a lot more proof for me to take them either as a valid part of philosophy or having any conclusive base in reality. However, others may find them a step in their journey.


I leave you to make your own judgements on this. It is important because many parts of the ascended masters and indigo children do get an airing in Spiritalist Centers. It is a good example of the type of New Age material that people wish to include within Spiritualism depite the lack of evidence in its favour.

Cheers All
