Are You an Indigo Child? These 17 Signs Will Reveal the Truth

Are You an Indigo Child? These 17 Signs Will Reveal the Truth

Are you an indigo child? Perhaps your children are indigo? Below I have included a list of seventeen authentic signs.

I have omitted typical signs often mentioned on other websites like β€œsense of entitlement” and β€œfeeling special and like you should be revered” because these, to me, represent narcissism or unhealthy parenting styles more than genuine indigo child signs.

If you possess more than half of these traits, you’re likely an indigo child:

1. You are strong willed

You are a passionate person who will do anything it takes to accomplish your goals or dreams. Even if other people criticize or don’t support you, you still keep going no matter what.

2. You’re an old soul

You feel as though you’ve lived many lifetimes, and possess a wisdom that others your age don’t yet have. As a child, you may have behaved like an old man or woman, and as an adult, you have a deeply spiritual and philosophical outlook on life.

3. You’re a freethinker

No idea or belief is too holy for you to dissect or reject. You prefer to think for yourself rather than blindly following the crowd. As an indigo child, questioning is everything to you.

4. You’re a headstrong nonconformist

As a child or teenager, you may have been thought of as β€œnaughty,” β€œobnoxious,” disobedient, and contrarian. As an adult, you still cannot stand being boxed in or controlled by others. As a headstrong nonconformist, you prefer to find your own truth and forge your own path.

5. You’re a passionate truth-seeker

Truth, to you, is of primary importance. You are always seeking to distinguish truth and reality from lies and deception. When you are around others, you can immediately tell when someone is lying or hiding something. Although the truth hurts, you honor it above all else. You would prefer to suffer from the truth than be happy believing lies.

6. You’re perceptive and intelligent

You can see and understand things about humanity and life that most other people don’t perceive. Your keen perception allows you to discover the truth about the human condition, and how to ultimately help.

7. You are highly intuitive

Your keen perception also makes you highly intuitive. You can often intuit the best course of action as well as know things about others that are secret or hidden.

8. You want to change the world

Deep in your heart, you feel a driving force to create positive change on this planet. As an indigo child, you know that your destiny is to be a paradigm changer/destroyer. This strong sense of purpose forms the axis of your decisions. Whatever is not aligned with your inner sense of purpose quickly dissolves in favor of soul-based decisions.

9. You’re empathetic and compassionate

You care so much about this planet and other people that it often hurts. Every time you see or hear of violence, destruction, and cruelty, you feel sorrow and anger. Your high level of empathy and compassion means that you often struggle with anxiety or depression.

10. You’re a change-making leader

Since you were little, you’ve always gravitated towards leadership. You may find it hard to work in teams or for other people and function better when you’re in charge or working for yourself. You find it difficult to obey authority, particularly when that authority is corrupt, illogical or outdated. You want to offer better, wiser, and healthier ways to live life, making you destined to be a spiritual elder.

11. You’re idealistic

You have high expectations for yourself and other people. While idealism can be a positive trait, it can also carry disadvantages such as being overly critical or demanding. Nonetheless, your idealism is what helps you to strive for the highest and do the absolute best you can for the planet.

12. You have a loner/autonomous personality

As a free spirit, you don’t like to be held down by anyone or anything. You find it difficult to be around too many people at once, and often prefer to spend time in your own company. As a lover of autonomy, you enjoy solitude and the insight it can bring.

13. You’re highly creative

Your nonconformist brain loves to express itself through art and creativity. Whether it be drawing, dancing, singing, building,Β painting, writing or crafting, you love creative self-expression.

14. You have a strong connection with nature and animals

As an empathic and compassionate person, you gravitate towards the natural world. You feel most at home when you’re near the ocean or surrounded by trees and animals. Nature is so pure and grounding that you find it a welcome break from the pretension of humanity.

15. You’re drawn towards spirituality over religion

To you, spirituality is falling in love with the message, and religion is loving the messenger. As an indigo child, you are drawn towards truth in its purest form – not diluted by dogma or fundamentalist teachings.

16. You struggle with boredom

Because of your sharp and inquisitive mind, you tend to struggle with routine and conventional structures. As a result of your tendency to get bored easily, you may have been misdiagnosed with ADD or ADHD as a child.

17. You are prone to experiencing existential angst

Existential anxiety and depression go far beyond usual anxiety and depression, and this is because it is more concerned with life itself than the self. As an indigo child, you tend to ask questions such as β€œWhy do we suffer?” β€œWhat is the meaning of life?” β€œWhy is there injustice?” β€œWhy was I born?” Such deep philosophical questions cause you to lose interest in the meaningless pursuits carried out by the majority of humanity.

Other potential traits of indigo children include:

  • Tendency towards addiction to numb feelings
  • Seeking only loyal friendships
  • Proud/bossy
  • Fiery tempered
  • More sensitive to environmental and food pollutants
  • Spiritual gifts such as clairvoyance or telepathy
