Welcome back to my discussion about what I think it means to be Indigo. In Part 1 I touched on the basic definition of an Indigo, and how I came to discover that I am an Indigo myself.

If you haven’t yet read Part 1, or feel you need a refresher, just click the link to the post below…I’ll keep myself amused til youΒ get back…

What does it mean to be Indigo? Part 1

Hey, You’re Back! Awesome!


Now, like I was saying…Everyone on the planet has a purpose to fulfill. Indigos do not have any sort of ‘exclusive rights’ to Destiny. Anyone trying to tell you otherwise probably has a book to sell, or is planning on starting a cult or something (If you’re writing such a book, Kudos to you, I wish you success, can I get a signed copy??? If you’re the cult guy, let me just say…you look lovely with that anime frog tattoo on your forehead – Honest :D. [Please, no angry letters – simply some light-hearted smart-ass conjecture on my part])

Uhhh, where was I? Oh, right – Destiny. Indigos don’t have the market cornered on it – but we’ve been fed the line that we are here to Change the World. Well sure, everyone will change the world in some small way…we’re all part of the same Universe, for crying out loud.

This continued theme of how ‘special’ Indigos and Crystals are has actually caused quite a lot of anxiety among those who fall into the categories. The pressure to do something Great for Humanity seems overwhelming. Would you like to go through life feeling as though there will be no cure for XYZ unless YOU hurry up and make an amazing discovery?? Or that YOU are the key to World Peace??

Sure, it would be great to do something so Earth-shatteringly amazing that the whole of humanity wanted to thank you…but is it realistic – let alone FAIR -to put these expectations upon these people??

I don’t think so.

I struggled for a while with it myself. Why was I given the gifts I have? Why do I think so differently from ‘everyone else’? What should I be doing to manifest my Destiny??

Then, one day it hit me…My purpose in This Life was to have my daughter – to raise her and guide her…and to learn from her. That was it…at least partially. It was startling to me that it was something so seemingly simple (although, anyone with kids – particularly strong willed ones – will tell you simple is the LAST thing it is, LOL).

The truth of the matter is that the simplest things could turn out to be the most important in the long run. I have done my best to teach my daughter how to think for herself. I have taught her the fundamental Truth that just because Society says that ‘This’ is the way we are supposed to Be/Act/Do things does not mean that Society is correct. I’ve done my best to make sure she never stops ‘seeking’ and ‘learning’.

This may seem like I’ve done just what every other parent tries to do…but I’ve found that when I tell people that she decided not to go to college, they are completely perplexed. Why didn’t I MAKE her go??? How will she possibly be able to make a life for herself?? Blah, blah, blah.

Just because she is not enrolled in a college does not mean that she is done learning. Frankly, the College structure, as it currently exists, simply will not work for her (wouldn’t have worked for me either, come to think of it).

My daughter was my main focus for 19 years…now, she is still on my spiritual agenda, just not the top of it (as it is now her turn to control her journey). So what is my purpose now?? Well, I’m focusing on my own spirituality (hence, my studies at Sacred Mists) as well as taking any small actions I can to support causes I believe in. If I can help anyone along the way, to discover their own path…or to discover a cause they feel is worth fighting for, then I will have fulfilled My Destiny as It has presented itself to me so far.

Each of us is on a separate journey – it it not for anyone else to decide which roads we take along the way.

Should we be without rules and go through life ‘Willy-Nilly’? Of course not. Contrary to what One might think, Indigos do need rules….we just don’t need rules that make no sense! Lol

Sure, I may be an idealist…but why is that BAD??

Wow…this has certainly been a rambling of sorts, hasn’t it? If I’ve lost any of you, I do apologize…I have a tendency to go off on tangents.

I guess what I’ve been getting at is that Being Indigo means being Human. It is living life to the fullest – not necessarily in the ‘traditional’ sense, but by going against the grain when necessary. It is not a license to buck authority just for the sake of bucking – but a tool to be used with caution. My mother (a particularly wise Indigo in her own right) always told me β€œThere is a time and a place for everything”.

If you are Indigo, it doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. It just means that you should not take your gifts for granted. Do your best to find your happiness, your purpose, your Truth. You may have access to some parts of the Universal Consciousness that others do not…use this knowledge carefully, and responsibly. Remember that, although you may be different from others you know – this does not make you better, nor does it make you a freak…it just makes you different. πŸ™‚

So, what do YOU think it means to be Indigo?? Are you making discoveries yourself? Please, share your thoughts & comments. I welcome your insight.

    Hello AmythystMoon!

    Thank you so much! I hope to keep you entertained…and perhaps even teach you a few things. Hey, ya never know! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for stopping by!


  • Merry Meet dear Isleen!
    It’s Yemaya from the Sacred Mists. I really love your blog! I’m also an adult Indigo and enjoyed reading your thoughts!
    Have you ever read about Crystal Children? They are the next generation after Indigos..most are born 2000 and later but I’m convinced my 25 year old sister is one. Doreen Virtue wrote a good book about Crystal Children, by that same title.
    Many Blessings,

      Welcome Yemaya! How lovely of you to visit! πŸ™‚

      Oh yes, I’ve read all about the Crystals as well, and I wouldn’t doubt that your sister could be one. Even though the number of Crystals born 2000 and later is quite large, they are by no means the FIRST of the Crystals (Just as those of us Indigos born in the 70’s/80’s were not the first). There have been ‘test pilots’ for both. The first Crystal I ever met was my best friend’s son. His eyes pierced through to my soul. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!
