The great cycle is characterized each time by a change in the consciousness of the people who are then present on earth. Well before this change, children are already born who have already been given the new consciousness. This prevents, among other things, that the changes would be too strong.
Since the early 1990s, the majority of children born have been Indigo children.

What is an Indigo Child?
An indigo child is so called because they are born under the ray of the new time. We are mostly born under the violet ray. An indigo child under the indigo ray.
Indigo is a deep shade of blue (a mixture of violet and purple). Some people can also perceive this color around the children (in the Aura ).
Difference Violet and Indigokind
People born under the Violet Ray have a two or three dimensional consciousness. We often work in flat surfaces, the maximum even of our imagination is three dimensional.
Children or people of the new age, such as an indigo child, have a fourth or fifth dimensional consciousness. This means that they perceive and store everything that comes their way in a different way than we do.
An indigo child is:
- particularly sensitive to impulses from their environment;
- very intuitive;
- see, hear, taste, smell and feel things that we cannot perceive.
We try to develop this sensitivity again through all kinds of courses and workshops. They come to earth with these abilities.
The indigo child knows his/her mission in this life. They know why they came to Earth and they are proud of it!
We are often looking for what we want to be, do and have. The indigo child knows exactly what they want, do and have and wonder why we don’t know. They as children know and we as adults do not know. They are born with a sense of pride and are very happy with themselves and this world.
NB! two different modes of consciousness now look at each other.
Violet understands nothing of the (Indigo) babies and children with a will of their own that cannot be changed and, moreover, wants to go through life as a bon vivant.
Indigo can’t understand how Violet is so difficult, doesn’t understand them, thinks so slowly, is insensitive to their demands and wishes, gets so complicated about feelings and tries to push them into the Violet box.
These are the fifteen most important characteristics of an Indigo child:
- They are born with a sense of royalty (and often do);
- They feel they “deserve to be there” and are often surprised when others don’t share;
- They often tell the parents “who they are”;
- They have problems with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice);
- They refuse to do certain things; for example waiting in a line;
- They become frustrated with systems that are ritually set and do not require creative input;
- They often see how things can be done better, at school and at home.
- This often makes them seem like system breakers (not conforming to any system);
- They often seem antisocial, except when they interact with other Indigo children.
- When no one is around to understand their consciousness, they often withdraw,
- feeling like no one understands them (using a computer or watching TV is also an example of this).
- School is often very difficult socially for an Indigo child;
- They don’t respond to “guilt” discipline (just wait for your father to come home);
- They are not ashamed to let you know what they want.
An indigo child is born to help us with the transformation into the new age. Somewhere deep inside us we know that changes are coming. The VPRO guide of mid-January even featured an article about the Nieuwetijdskinderen and there was a program on the radio. The first schools for these children have been established and started up in the Netherlands.
The indigo children are individualists who have a different kind of intelligence than we do. As a result, they learn faster or decide that they don’t find it interesting and decide not to participate. They sometimes seem less sociable but have a deep sense of injustice. They don’t talk much among themselves, they communicate via telepathy and are well tuned to their parents and each other.
The new education, which is more geared to individual education, is certainly good for them. In the meantime, they have to make do with what’s there.
This week I heard from an indigo kid who initially appeared to have a low IQ and thought all people were “shrimp”. Now with individual education (small group of six) he appears to have a particularly high IQ and he is now learning that others are different and not shrimp.
You hear five year old kids call other kids just kids!
One thing has become clear to me with all these children:
IF THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THEIR “BEING DIFFERENT” THEY MAY BECOME AGGRESSIVE, WITHDRAWAL, OR WAITING. THEY KEEP DOING THIS TO THE EXTREME FOR ONLY ONE REASON: TO WAKE US UP.
If we don’t wake up, they keep confronting until we wake up or they often get sick, hyper-active or inactive.
Also don’t forget that because of their difference they also need different food. Sometimes they don’t like traditional food but they know what they like. Their appetites can vary greatly and sometimes it seems as if they live on air.
Because they have a different energy household than we can, some people often react allergic to many types of food. Many are extremely sensitive to sugar and chocolate. Too much of this often makes them aggressive!
The last ten years has seen a sharp increase in the number of allergies among children.
Nancy Ann Tape wrote a book as far back as 1982 called “Understanding Your Life Through Color”. This is the first book describing the behavior of these new children.
In the book The Indigo Child, Nancy says in an interview:
‘I first saw the indigo children in the early 1970s while doing research at San Diego State University. I only started looking into it later in the eighties. What quickly became clear to me is that they do not work according to the standard rules. I believe that 90% of the children under the age of ten are Indigo children.’
Nancy Tappe identifies four different types of indigo child, each with a different purpose in life:
1. the Humanist
This indigo child will work with large groups. They are the doctors, lawyers, teachers, salespeople, businessmen and politicians of the future. They are hyperactive, extremely social, talk to everyone and are always friendly. They have strong beliefs. Sometimes they feel strange in their current body, become hyperactive and sometimes run against the wall to forget to brake them.
They don’t know how to play with toys but put everything everywhere and nobody is allowed to touch it. Because they are easily distracted, you often have to remind them of the assignment. They start cleaning their room, find a book and sit down and read it intensively (they are real readers).As a baby they already look into a book, intense and serious, can’t read yet but they think they do.
2. the Conceptual
This indigo child does more in projects than people. These are the engineers, architects, developers, astronauts, pilots and military of the future. They feel comfortable in their bodies and often excel in sports. They have problems with control and the one who tries to control them is often their mother, if they are boys.
Girls often try to control their father. If they can go about their business, problems often arise. This type of indigo child is prone to addictions, especially drugs, in their early years. Parents should closely monitor the behavior of these indigo children. If they’re going to stop you from getting into their room, it’s time to search the place.
3. the Artist
This indigo child is the most sensitive and often a bit smaller than the others (not always). They are very creative and have a sense of art. These are the teachers and artists of the future. There is creativity in everything they do.
If they go into medicine, these are the researchers or surgeons. In fine art, they become the artist’s artist. Between the ages of four and ten, they can do fifteen different creative things – for five minutes – and then stop again. Definitely don’t buy them instruments until they are over ten!
4. the Interdimensional
This indigo child is generally taller than the other indigo children and by the age of one or two you can’t tell them anything. They will say “I know. I can do it. Leave me alone”. These are the indigo children who are going to bring the new philosophies and religions into the world. They can be real bullies because they are bigger and don’t want to blend in at all like the other three types.
Advice from Nancy Ann Tappe are:
- indicate clear boundaries between which the child can work and move;
- talk to them about how they would solve things (since they can talk);
- talk to them from baby like they are grown up (no baby talk) and always explain what you are doing;
- you cannot treat them as smaller. They have no respect for you if you don’t treat them as fully fledged. Respect for the elderly is a problem for them. You have to earn the respect.;
- listen to them, follow your gut and don’t try to be an authority. Have the children share what they need.
- Tell them why you can’t give it. All it takes is to listen. All indigo children are open to it!;
- If they are mistreated they go straight to an authority;
ALL THEY WANT IS TO BE RESPECTED AS CHILDREN AND TREATMENT AS ADULTS – NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHILDREN AND ADULTS.
Indigo children and emotions
Because they have a great sense of “own” worth and integrity, Indigo children process emotions differently than non-Indigo children.
They know you as an open book and immediately sense if there are hidden agendas and/or if you are trying to manipulate them (also subtly). Often they know you better than you know yourself and are a mirror to the side of yourself that you often don’t want to see.
Most want to process their emotions themselves and will only accept help if it is given with understanding, respect and choice.
They are sometimes like sponges and if they find it interesting, they absorb the information in a very short time. They learn through sensory experience. If this is not included, they create it themselves. Life is a great experience for them, if they feel nothing, they learn nothing.
Their strong will allows them to completely shut themselves off from the outside world. If they don’t care, they aren’t there anymore. You sometimes see this with certain diseases that they have just like us. You can try anything but they decide for themselves what works.
Indigo children have a direct mind-body connection and can make themselves sick in a short time. If they don’t want to go to school, they create a fever or flu.
If you feel resistance with an indigo child, look at yourself first. For me, they are mirrors that indicate exactly what is going on with you.
Some people who work with indigo children perceive an attraction and repulsion period. Sometimes they attract each other in a certain period of time and sometimes they can’t work together at all.
Indigo children can read minds and are sometimes ahead of what is about to happen. Most have a direct connection with one of the parents and then show the stress and/or illnesses that are hidden in the parent himself and that he or she does not want or cannot see.
Safety is an important theme. All children must first feel safe before they can fully explore the outside world. For indigo children, safety means it’s okay for them to do things differently. They need a lot of space because they only learn through experience. We often try to protect our children from danger. This is fine, but realize that indigo children only learn when their head hits the wall.
Fear, insecurity and anger surface when they are ultimately misunderstood. They will do everything they can to make it clear to us that they are here to help us move into the new age. If our eyes are not opened,
some children become extremely anxious, angry and uncertain about what the future will look like. Many indigo children are being typified this way at the moment and given the wrong medications. The best help comes from people they understand —-> Ah, finally a supporter.
An indigo child is a born master. Often, like babies or children, they feel limited by their bodies and get angry if you don’t understand them.
The reactions can vary from first wanting to understand completely in silence and being able to convert to frustrated knocking over blocks until it works. One thing is clear to me. They set their own pace and indicate themselves what they want to do. All you can do is offer them different things and see what they get on with.
Challenges an indigo child may face:
Most indigo children demand a lot of attention from the moment of birth and feel that life is too important to just do nothing. They are generally busy children who can throw themselves completely into their game.
They want things to happen and when things are calm they will force certain situations to get their way.
Usually the parents fall into doing for their children and not pretending (being a role model) or sitting still and sharing what is happening. If you’re going to do anything for them, they’ll stick to you like chewing gum.
Because they themselves know why they are here and who they are, they can be very emotionally touched by parents who do not see what they are.
They do not understand that others can work or do things without love. Most indigo children know exactly how they could help other children and are sometimes disappointed when this is not accepted.
Some Indigo children are labeled with dyslexia, ADD (Attention Deficit Order) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) or some other form of hyperactivity. Of course, this is sometimes correct on chemical or genetic grounds.
The problem lies with the children who have no chemical or genetic cause for these observations and yet are given drugs.
I hope that the further background of the indigo children can help the therapists better understand these children and develop other treatment methods.
How can you best help an indigo child?
Advice from parents, therapists from the book the Indigo children and own observations.
- Treat them with respect. Acknowledge their role in the family;
- Help them create their own disciplinary solutions;
- Always give them choices, in everything;
- Never patronize them and never laugh at them;
- Always explain why they should do things. If it sounds ridiculous to you, it will do to them. Then change it, they will respect this. They know right away when you’re being honest so don’t try to make things up and just say you don’t feel like it today because you’re tired;
- Become partners with them in their own bringing up;
- From baby, explain everything and why you are doing it. They will not immediately understand you, but they will feel that you respect their consciousness. It helps them a lot when they start talking;
- If problems do arise, go to someone who understands them before giving them medicine;
- All indigo children respond particularly well to Homeopathy, Bach remedies and Reiki. If this is done by therapists where they feel at home one can see astounding results in a short time;
- Give them help under all circumstances and avoid negative criticism. Always let them know that you support them in their process. They will often contradict you directly or let you know their comments. Enjoy and celebrate the successes. Let them do things without undue encouragement;
- Don’t tell them who they are now or what they will be in the future. They already know exactly what they are going to do. Let them decide for themselves what they are interested in. Don’t force them into a family business. The kids are definitely not followers.
Treat an indigo child like an adult and be a good friend to them.
