user posted image rLittle Kai looks and talks like any other 3-year-old. "I like to play chicken games and another game about tigers," he said. But his mother, Lon Bloomfield, says he has supernatural gifts ... and remembers past lives."Maybe about a year ago, he told me, 'Remember Mom, when I was your dad?'" Lon said.Do you know a child like this?Smart, intuitive, sensitive, strong-willed, and full of energy, they're often called "Indigo children" -- a popular label for kids who are especially gifted. Many psychologists and parents believe these children have psychic powers and are more evolved. Shannon Parsons says her four kids are also Indigos. "They're always talking about when they were in heaven and what they knew and who they knew," she said.Her 7-year-old son Chandler frequently talks to an imaginary friend he says he met in heaven ... "We talk about everything in the world," Chandler added, "[like] what he did on his vacation."

Parapsychologist Nancy Ann Tappe was the first to describe these children more than 20 years ago. She says they're called Indigo because of the dark blue aura that surrounds them. And she believes Indigos are more evolved than past generations."They're straight-talkers," Tappe, formerly of San Diego State University and currently represented by Spelling Publishers, explained. "They don't want to be talked down to. They'll catch you at three if you do."

Oh please, I'm so sick of hearing about this its such crap. "Indigo Children" what a crock.

So let me get this straight -If a child has authority issues and a short attention span, they're magical children and not just ADD fflicted right?

Parents oh SOOOOo desperate for little Sky or little Gaia (really should be called little Mommytooktoomuchacidinthe70s) to be special somehow -what the hell happened to piano lessons?

Your kids have problems, help them!

I remember having an imaginary friend when i was 4 or 5 -Cookie and her imaginary dog Cracker- I'm SO ANGRY that my parents helped me dispell my friend from the other side and made me get into music lessons and art lessons and made me read books! DAMN YOUUUUUUU!!!!!

Up until I was about 3 or 4 I was always talking about my "other mom and dad", according to a young me they lived in heaven. I have no memory of saying any of this, but I've been told the stories

Look what the laugh is about, and you'll find it's not just about the naming. And I have to admit, the sentence made me chuckle as well  tongue.gif

As for indigo children... I don't know. Imagination, an obsession to have a special child, evolution?

Whatever it is, either gift or curse, those children need good guidance.

Am I supposed to be a sceptic, just because I'm a scientist?

Hoax creations like indigo children are just stuff made up by new age con artists to fleece you out of money.

Heaven didnt want me and Hell thinks I will take over.

It is the whole Indigo fixation, yes, and so typical of them to brand their kids that way for everyone to know. Those parents are in my age group and now many of the "gifted" ones are not doing so well or resent their parents for what they did to them even though they are successful accademically.

It was the whole parents trying to live through the kids routine but with a new twist from the old super athelete or beauty queen ones that have always prevailed so much.

Because it is silly. Parents feeling a need to give their children special names.

Obviously none of you have ever met anyone fitting the discription or you would know immediately that they are different.
Haven't you ever come across a young person and thought to yourself that they are wise beyond their years or might be an old soul?

As I said on the other thread, this subject of discussion is a matter of view. Though an old soul in full is a debatable, seeing as how whether a 'soul' is just that or something anyplace above is a conundrum yet to be cracked, unbounded, and dislodged. Anyway..... allow this to hint to something less abrasive that we could dole out.

Do you really feel 'authority issues' and 'short attention span' is not something that flares up in everyone's lives and that pangs anyone with that range of emotion? This hints to the fact that said descriptions aren't really accurate or proof to one that may be termed as 'Indigo', but as you've said yourselves, it's a fracas. All I'm saying is that the 'matter of view' take which I feel (keyword accentuation) is one we all can be in agreeance with. I mean, it's quite limpid, to me, that the wisdom (and perhaps conceit) filling the boy's (at issue) eyes in the image residing SaRuMaN's post. Again, this is the way I perceive the such, no less.

An Indigo is a debatable. It's really not a length away from Zodiac Signs or Chinese Astrology. Sure they're rather fun to ponder on many a thought, but do I feel like a Fire/Earth Sagittarius Dragon (with Aries/Aquarius moon and rising signs respectively) one time too many without bringing down the corners of my mouth at select times, based off of how every portion I've read on the matter details just that out? Not necessarily. By my own admission (and that's by my view), they may be no place close to true. I've seen 'Rabits' who act like 'Dragons' at sheer whim. So yes, I'd have to say inevitably that Indigos are a debatable (and that I've seen others wield and display the same Indigo, fervid, and fierce auras who are supposedly not Indigos) as is everything indubitably a matter of perception (and 'indubitably' being a debatable in itself)... but perhaps a less vehement and acrid tone could be taken?

I saw a kid band play on the Conan o Brian show and they were singing a unique kind of music and were dancing in ways that hasen't been done yet. You got a vibe of eternal youthfulness from them. I know it sounds strange but maybe thats were the next and then the next generations of children are headed. More refinement and more life. Imagine the brilliance of children a thousand years from now if Earth survives.
