Tonight's guest Doreen Virtue has written about the phenomenon known as Indigo Children (the group that came before the Crystal Children) who have been so named because their auras are said to be indigo (dark blue with a touch of red). "The color indigo represents the third eye chakra, the energy center of psychic activity, which is believed to be wide open on most indigos," writes Wendy Chapman, the director of the Metagifted Resource Organization.
Also referred to as Children of the Sun or Millennium Children, some believe these children possess a deeper spiritual awareness and are here to help the human race evolve to a higher level. Indigos are often bright, sensitive children who may show psychic gifts but also have behavioral problems. According to the book The Indigo Children, assembled by Lee Carroll (a channeler for the entity Kryon) and Jan Tober, many of these children are misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder and given Ritalin instead of the special care and training they need.
Here are some of the characteristics that Chapman lists as being associated with Indigo Children:
- Display strong intuition
- Find it torture to wait in lines, lack patience
- Have strong empathy for others or NO empathy
- Have very old, deep, wise looking eyes
- Are talented daydreamers and visionaries
