I consider myself an Indigo Child on an atheistic path. It might seem contradictory since Indigo Children, and the offshoots such as Star Seed, Crystal, etc… Are considered pseudoscience.
Humans are social creature-beings with a need to belong. It just so happens that I fit the basic criteria of the Indigo Child. So, I have joined the club.
I was born before 1983, but I don’t agree with that date, anyway. We have been around for a long, long time. I don’t know about making genetic changes at will and that’s silly anyway. If you believe in epigenetics, our genes are changing on a regular basis. So, I have thrown that away, too. My Indigo status gives me the authority to throw away any details I deem to be rubbish.
Now on to the criteria I do meet.
Please read this article:
That’s me! They described what I am so well, how can this not be what I am?
This list of 13 attributes of Indigos proves it:
“1. YOU FEEL ENTITLED
You were born feeling special and know it.
2. YOU ARE DESTINED TO BE HERE
You are confident and even arrogant at times – and emboldened by something larger than you can name.
3. YOU HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF YOURSELF AND OTHERS
This can make for a challenging relationships and interactions. You see only the best and expect others to live up to it. Toward yourself, you can be unrelentingly self critical.
4. YOU ARE PERCEPTIVE
Indigos see the world differently. Coupled with innate-self assurance, you often think your way is right and are offended if others cannot see, much less take action, on your point of view. If Indigos ruled the world, you are confident no problems would exist.
5. YOU QUESTION AUTHORITY
You are not one to negotiate, so certain in your views and ways, you are often rebellious and critical of those in power.
6. YOU WANT TO OVERTURN THE MAN
Difficult and rigid systems seem foolish to you and you often become antagonistic to what others experience as normal.
7. YOU ARE CREATIVE
Musically and artistically gifted, your art invites others to see the world around through your eyes.
8. YOU ARE A CHANGE MAKER
Your perception on the failings of society is so keen that you are a magnificent leader, offering better methods of business, society and ways of being.
9. YOU ARE A LOST SOUL
You feel out of place with others as you recognize you are different than most people. You can tend toward being a loner or rebel, unwilling to compromise just to fit in.
10. YOU ARE DRIVEN
As the Indigo soul mission is encoded in your very being, you are unwilling to back down from confronting what feels out of integrity.
11. YOU ARE PASSIONATE AND FOCUSED
While fiery temperaments may be hard to take, you are not one to be still or silenced.
12. YOU ARE HIGHLY PSYCHIC
Without any need for development, your psychic capacity is finely tuned. While you see nothing special in your ability, it gives you an advantage in reading others with ease and seeing through masks.
13. YOU ARE FRUSTRATED
Coupled with their big-picture vision and restless soul drive for change, you become easily frustrated with society and others who are not shifting quickly enough. Patience is something that should be developed.”
It says nowhere that an Indigo has to believe in deities. And if they try to make this part of the criteria, I’ll just use my awesome Indigo-ness and reject it.
To go further, I have remembrances of life on other planets far from this one. This would make me a Star Seed. The problem is, this label doesn’t sound right. Star Seed sounds too awkward. I much prefer Star Child, if you please.
But to simplify it, I just say I am an Indigo Child. It works best for me. And I like it!
