Experiences of the different Indigo Waves over the past 50 years

Something wonderful is happening on planet Earth. During the last century, several successive cohorts of highly sensitive, highly conscious, spiritual and purposeful individuals have been born. They think outside the box, have a high energy level and experience a wider spectrum of reality than many before them.

In a way, this is nothing new. Indigos are in fact “ old souls ” and if you look them in the eye you will see depths of human history and experience. Humans to whom this description applies have been around since the Earth’s existence, the catalyst for our growth and expansion.

The numbers are new. There are many highly sensitive and highly conscious among us. And perhaps there is something new about our bodies and minds, which are evolving to better accommodate these evolutionary changes.

Those who have seen and recognized this pattern have called it the “ Indigo ” phenomenon. The word Indigo refers to a deep and rich shade of purple/blue that is associated with a higher level of consciousness, with finer, unique energies. It is associated with the third eye chakra, the energy center that directs our aptitude to transcend physical reality and regulate our growth toward enlightenment and manifest the importance of life.

Differences Between the Cohorts:

With each new generation, the overall spectrum of sensitivity and awareness seems to grow. This creates challenges related to living in the current physical reality. In other words, the Indigos who experience the greatest continuum of sensitivity and awareness have the most difficulty adjusting to the world.

On the other hand, each successive wave of Indigos is more able to cope with and adapt to their sensitivities and consciousness because of the evolutionary shifts in their bodies and minds.

From these two (sometimes contradictory) dynamics, a unique expression of the Indigo energy in the different generations has arisen. Of course, as expected, there are also considerable individual differences in the degrees of sensitivity and awareness, and in dealing with the world and adapting to the inner changes.

Also, as in any widespread change, Indigos may show gifts in some areas of their lives and not others.

For example, there are a number of characteristics that Indigos of all types and ages have in common.

Common Characteristics Of All Indigos:

  1. High intelligence level – this applies to emotional intelligence as well as IQ;
  2. Creativity – both in ideas and in artistic expression;
  3. Spiritual interest and aptitude (possibly latent as long as the upper chakras  are blocked, but quickly blossom when opened);
  4. A series of intuitive or paranormal experiences;
  5. Sensitivity to nuances – see life in shades of gray instead of black and white;
  6. Big, caring heart – need to heal others and the planet (may be hidden under layers of defense when proven difficult);
  7. Thinking outside the box – not satisfied with traditional thinking and problem solving;
  8. Sensitive to the pain of the world – may have trouble watching the evening news or get a stomachache at the sight of child or animal abuse;
  9. Noticing of human interactions – can quickly estimate the emotional temperature of a room upon entering;
  10. Awareness of and sensitivity to the unspoken desires and needs of others;
  11. Has the ability (normally untrained and difficult to control) to be absorbed in the thoughts and energies of others, so may struggle with boundaries;
  12. Hyperaware of sensory stimuli – can be easily overwhelmed;
  13. Ability to accomplish great things when heart and mind are focused on the same goal;
  14. Has a high value of finding purpose and meaning in life, and is often in pursuit of it;

Experience Of The First Indigo Wave:

The first Indigo wave tends to either operate within the confines of traditional society while experiencing major internal conflict OR to withdraw from everyday life and adopt a hermit-like lifestyle.

They often feel responsible for everyone and everything around them. This, coupled with high sensitivity and high awareness, can lead to massive internal stress with associated blockages in the energy flow and increased stress.

Features Of The Second Indigo Wave:

The generations between approximately the ages of 14 and 40 (as of this writing in 2006) experienced a second wave of indigo energy. This manifested in the Twin phenomenon of a) elevation in the spectrum of sensitivity/consciousness, with parallel deviation from the majority of society, and b) adaptive changes in mind and body, allowing these new energies to flow more effectively.

This is the Indigo group described in books like “ The Indigo Children ” by Lee Carroll. These individuals share all or nearly all of the characteristics of the Indigocohort, with the addition of many of the following:

  1. Has the ability to communicate through thought, and not just through words;
  2. Refuses to conform to the norm, to the usual: follows his or her own rhythm; May not perform well in school – is impatient with institutions that perpetuate the status quo and are not suited to his or her experiences and abilities;
  3. Difficulties in service-oriented jobs – resists authority and the hierarchical system of employment;
  4. Alienation or anger towards politicians – believing that their vote doesn’t count or that the outcome doesn’t really matter;
  5. Difficulty concentrating on tasks – jumping off the bat in conversations – may be labeled ADHD;
  6. Can see, feel, or otherwise experience the world of energy – old scientific paradigms are considered irrelevant;
  7. Is aware of other worlds and other dimensions of reality;
  8. Carefree over- and unmotivated by social values
  9. VERY committed to authenticity – says, does and feels that which comes from deep within, refusing to play the usual social games, has difficulty tolerating any insincerity in others;
  10. Not accepted – experiences life as an outsider, may feel lonely;
  11. Appears listless or lost – unable to be satisfied with ordinary life due to the absence of purpose or meaning;
  12. Periods of depression and sometimes suicidality – especially during adolescence when deviance and high sensitivity can be overwhelming;
  13. Has paranormal experiences, such as clairvoyance, hearing or seeing things, or having premonitions about the future;
  14. Ability to manifest amazing things through intent (may be latent due to difficulties in finding a direction for his/her energies);
  15. Experiencing unexplained electrical phenomena such as watches stopping, computers crashing, lights turning on and off – This may be associated with periods of high emotional or psychic energy;
  16. Reactive to toxins of all types in the environment – ​​can have multiple allergies;
  17. To be aware of the inner connectedness of everyone and everything in the world – what some call the web or trellis or Oneness in which life is lovingly nurtured;

The Third Indigo Wave:

The third wave of the Indigo phenomenon has been called the “ Crystal Children ”. These children are still young at the time of writing. They tend to be more sensitive and aware than their predecessors, yet feel less strife about the lives of these in the world.

Perhaps this is due to the fact that many of their parents are Indigos, and so have had an easier time adjusting to an often strange world. They seem to have less restrictive ideas about themselves, about their ability to manifest their purpose, and truly live within social and physical relationships.
