Actually in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta, in the last few years, many mass media covered the Indonesian children who have a sixth sense or has called "third eye". It called Indigo child or Sixth sense because the children have special characteristics that differ somewhat with the most children.

Their achievements are average compare to those who are genius and even some of them should stay class.

Most of Indigo child is lazy and lack of ambition. Many of the indigo child complain about headache because they could not understand with so many thoughts in their mind. But there are many indigo child who has reached great achievement in their life.

What is Indigo Child ?

According to wikipedia, Indigo children is a concept developed by Nancy Anne Tappe describing children who are alleged to possess special traits or abilities. Beliefs about Indigo children range from their being the next stage in human evolution, possessing paranormal abilities such as telepathy, to the belief that they are simply more empathetic and creative than their non-indigo peers. There is no science or studies that give credibility to the existence or traits of indigo children. Many children labeled "indigo" are diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

The word Indigo comes from the color Indigo that is the blue to purple color. Indigo child has a sharp intuition. Many belief that Indigo child has purple aura color. Generally, people who are talented as Indigo could be seen  since birth, even as reality in general is also a gift of a hereditary. So, naturally they have the gift and the sharpness intuition different with each other

There is a very sensitive one, that could see through time and place. For example the Indigo child could guess exactly the opponent's t-shirt color while having a phone call with him/her. The Indigo children could also have a vision of what is going to happen in the future. Some could read others mind, some could do a skill that they have never learned before like other language, writing skill, certain sport skill, painting, and many more.

Understanding the 'Sensitives'

Dealing with Indigo Child

If your child is Indigo don't be panic. Relax. Appreciate the child. Some parents have difficulty when they found their child is Indigo because most people still think that Indigo child has a mental disorder or has a malfunction brain. First, you have to give thanks to the Lord God, all your children are blessing and they are special, including your Indigo child.

Be more aware with Indigo symptoms and phenomena. Both parent and child could spend quality time together discover all the child gifts. Do not underestimate their gifts if they direct you with their vision. Sometime, they could see the future.

Be patience dealing with Indigo child. They may be confuse as you are but parent need to be more patience and follow your inner heart because this is the journey that both have to walk by.

Love the child as they are. Honest with Indigo child and always give them explanation about everything. Because sometime Indigo child can not take the "white lies" like Tooth Fairy.

Be an open mind parent, I have watched about an Indigo child in one talk show on my local TV, the child was so serious about everything, she could predict the future and heal sick people. The child also gave instruction to her parent and asked them to change their home decoration and as I can see, the parent take all the child advise with open mind.

      Hi Rebecka, I think Indigo Teens will be the same with indigo child, only, they are highly sensitive and psychic, and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament.

      I think you should check this site :

      It's Celia Fenn's site who is Indigo/Crystal adult who holds a MA and PhD degrees and she is a therapist too. Hope it will help you :)

      my son was told by a lady about 12 years ago that he had an indigo aura, then she gave me a book describing the indigo child it fit him entirely, my doctor thinks he has adhd but we have never medicated him and he seems to have adjusted well, now that he is 14 I wonder what signs would there be for a teenager?

      'i am indigo' available on Amazon is a groundbreaking book that can positively affect the ways in which Indigos interact with parents, teachers and caregivers, altering the shape of their future in miraculous ways. Our own beliefs about life and our perceived reality are stretched, leaving us with a refreshing perspective on the true nature of reality. An indespensable book for Indigo kids, a must-read!

      Hi Valerian, you are right, Indigo child is sent to the world to open our inner consciousness and I appreciate them very much. Not underestimate them and just listen and learn from them. Thank You for your encouraging comment, have a great day :)

      This is an extremely interesting topic that I wish more people were aware of. I recommend to my friends to go beyond wikipedia, which can be very limiting on this subject, and check out the plethora of sources on this. From what I understand, Indigo children are born with a great connection to the spiritual realm (and because they are just children they don't quite understand it themselves yet, and their parents don't understand it either, which makes matters even more confusing for the poor child). Many people believe the Indigos were sent here to raise the human collective consciousness/vibration to a high-enough level that we can get out of this negative rut we've dug ourselves into these past, well, thousands of years!

      So, thank you! Thank you for bringing this topic into light, because people really ought to be aware that...this is not all there is. There is so much more we have to learn! We all stand to benefit from increasing our awareness...that there is something out there we have not found yet...the cosmic wonderland inside us all. Indigo children are an opportunity for us to open our eyes to our greater abilities, deep and forgotten inside.

      And parents can help greatly by being aware, and understanding, and by not attempting to suppress their child's gifts, just because they don't understand....

      In my own NA culture, we believe that also. We continually evolve and even our scientists have found we are evolving at high rate. Great Hub! :)
