Indigo Children - Born to Lead Hard to Manage

Indigo Children – Born To Lead Hard To Manage
by Judy H. Wright

As I travel the country teaching workshops for parents, teachers and day care providers I often ask them if they recognize
Auntie Artichoke enjoys working with the parents of Indigo Children
These children are not content to color in the lines or glue macaroni on paper. They are very bright but also very active and curious.

Born To Be Leaders

Some of the children who are being born now are just arriving knowing who and what they are. They really just need parents to guide them a little and keep them safe till they are grown up enough to accomplish what they have been sent to do. Many parents and teachers are scared of such independent spirits and want to medicate them because they are easier to handle. They are usually intuitive and sensitive to the environment. These beautiful kind spirits are very hard to keep in the old rules of schools and families. They are self directed and don’t always get the “why” adults want them to do things.

A Few Characteristics Noted By Jan Tober and Lee Carol, Authors of What Is an Indigo Child

•They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).
•They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.
•They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and don’t require creative thought.
•They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like “system busters” (nonconforming to any system).
•They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward; feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially.
Trust Your Intuition

There are many other books out there that will give you insight into the personality of an Indigo Child. Your most important source of inspiration on dealing with your child is your heart and intuition. No one knows and loves your child as you do. Discuss and plan with the child systems to make life easier for both of you. I can usually tell because their eyes will look at you as if they can see into your soul. They are the ones who will help all of humanity to move in a direction. A leader who will lead in their own way. Our job is to keep these Indigo Children safe and recognize what they have to teach us. They are born to lead, so let’s guide and accompany them on their journey, but let them lead the way. I am sure you probably have a child or two who come to mind when I talk about an Indigo Child.

If your child has lost self esteem by trying to fit into a “regular world” please go to a free ebook which will help them recognize their inner strength. You will be so glad you did.
