A lot has been written off late about the new age souls who have incarnated in this planet to assist humanity with shifting old outdated systems with new creative ones. These gifted souls carry a huge amount of creative energy in them coupled with a massive will-power. The term Indigo or the name Indigo is inspired from the color indigo which is the 6th chakra of a human body, also known as the third eye chakra or the pineal gland. The pineal gland governs many of the traits which they exhibit which shape a major part of their personality or individuality.
Indigos are here to activate or actively incorporate the introduction of a new era of spirit into our daily existence. They learn differently, think differently, but by no means does this mean they are dysfunctional or disordered. They are here to change how things are done. Create new ideas on how to run businesses, to run the government, to handle relationships, to care for the world, to understand education and the arts. Therefore it is important for these Indigos to feel supported and understand they belong at home. It will take time for the system to accommodate and nurture these gifted souls. Without understanding and proper support, their world can be very harsh and lonely. They cannot rejoice who they are and feel the need to suppress their true brilliance in order for them to feel accepted by their family, friends, and society.
Here a list of few characteristics or traits almost all Indigos exhibit. Although these characteristics might resonate with a lot of people, an Indigo will have all of the below 20 characteristics. While reading these, if you intuitively resonate with every word and trait, you might be an Indigo.
(*Note: The following traits are only expressed to further understand a certain individual’s personality and by no means are to portray any superiority or inferiority with respect to any other beings. We are all one single collective consciousness.)
1st sign you are an Indigo - You have a sense of mission
Indigos have come here on a mission which is to spread love, joy, and happiness although every indigo has a unique way of doing it. They have a deep inner soul knowing that they are here in this world for a particular purpose. However, due to amnesia after birth, they tend to forget their purpose and often fall into the trap of the materialistic world.
2nd sign you are an Indigo - You are a rebel
Indigos are rebels by nature. Not because they want to, they just do not affirm to conformity. It is not in their nature. Their soul knows everyone is different and every one is unique and everyone deserves an equal amount of respect. They often stand tall for the underdogs and rebel everything which does not align with their truth or their wise soul’s inner knowing as injustice. This is often the reason why indigos have a very hard time at school. They do not understand the repetitive tasks and lessons and long stretches of class hours which does not add value to their knowledge or intelligence. They seriously wanted to rebel at school but some might not have due to parental pressure or the fear from the discipline of their families.
3rd sign you are an Indigo - You are a troublemaker
Because of their rebellious nature, they often tend to question everything they are taught. They always seek to know why they are being asked to do something and do not fear to question the authority and expressing a creative solution to a process which doesn’t make sense to them. This often triggers the ego of the authority and they are labeled as a sore thumb in the society. Their energy presence often intimidates the people around them. As a result, they will have extreme difficulty in service-related jobs where they will have to submit to authority.
4th sign you are an Indigo - You are sensitive
Indigo’s feel everything deeply. They are often highly tuned to their senses and the vibrations and frequencies around them through thoughts and feelings. One small example could be, someone next door gently closing a small door of a cupboard and the vibrations of the door close ringing like a bird flapping its wings right next to the ear. That’s how sensitive their senses can be to their surroundings. They are also very sensitive to emotions – They may show deep emotions on the slightest of issues or may totally be opposite where they show no emotions and shield them to camouflage themselves. They might have had harsh childhoods due to their shock of feeling alien in this world and may have suppressed or bottled up a lot of old emotional childhood blocks which they may fail to express when they grow old. They are also highly compassionate beings.
5th sign you are an Indigo - You are psychic
Have had psychic experiences in the childhood or may have totally dismissed it due to societies control over fear of being abnormal. However, this can happen again at later stages and gets better through practice. May have had premonitions, seeing angels or ghosts/spirits, out of body experiences, hearing voices, their names being called out. Have the ability to communicate telepathically with closed ones (someone who they share a lot of their energy with) and also telepathic healing. Have the ability to be clairvoyant, claircognizant, clairsentient or clairaudient. Can also usually sense energies which cannot be sensed by our 5 senses. A lot of these abilities might have unconsciously been shut to not scare people.
6th sign you are an Indigo - You resist authority, outdated systems, and structures
Indigos often dislike repetitive tasks and organized structures which adds zero value to the productive world. They quickly see the through the lie of the society and know the concept of authority is merely an illusion. It’s not they don’t respect them as people, but they understand there is nobody above them, and for that matter, beneath them. When forced to act under the imposed authority, they usually begin to rebel. This can turn out to be an explosive revolution or a more passive one based on the particular Indigo’s makeup. They ignore rules unless someone explains to them why they have been put in place, as well as structures, routines, disciplines, rituals, or decorum which doesn’t make sense to them.
7th sign you are an Indigo - You do not fit in
Society and its masked ego do not make any sense to the Indigos. We get frustrated with the superficiality of the society and do not have the energy to put up with the pretense. We see inside people and perceive all the suffering and inauthenticity they are filled with. This can make us a loner or an outcast and we tend to deeply crave the connection of other Indigos or people similar to us. They also connect well with people who are older to them as the older people easily see the beauty and the depth of the Indigo soul. Indigos are wired differently than other people. They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. They are generally socially awkward.
8th sign you are an Indigo - You are creative
The true power of the Indigo is in the massive creative energy they possess. These beings are highly intelligent and are often intellectual and creative geniuses. These creative talents are repressed in the traditional left-brain hierarchical school structure. The creative energy comes with intense curiosity and a laser-like single-minded focus on what interests them. They are also very good at avoiding something which does not interest them. This makes the Indigos have a pattern of high grades initially and then followed by lower grades as they get uninspired by schoolwork. They are usually multi-talented and their joy lies in creating anything which expresses personal power, spirituality or anything which adds value to the well-being of humanity, animals, environment or the planet on the whole. Indigos should have an outlet for their creativity while they are waiting to know what their mission is in life. Their energy is strong and will find an outlet whether they want it to or not – and this could be in negative forms such as obsessive thinking or worrying as well as addictions or even excessive spirituality. They are curious beings and always want to know the reasons as to why things are happening in a certain way. They will always have the need to ask “WHY”?
9th sign you are an Indigo - You are an old soul
The Indigos outlook on life is vastly different and more matured than those around them. As a result, they are disinterested in the pursuits and interests of the materialistic 3D world. They tend to find themselves alone and people just don’t cut it for them. They crave knowledge, wisdom, and truth as they know knowledge is power, wisdom is happiness and freedom is the truth. These pursuits are more meaningful to them rather than reading up the latest gossip of a TV show or a football game. They live authentically and are always truthful, they have no energy to put on with being fake. However, there might be fear to live by their truth.
10th sign you are an Indigo - You are powerful and have a high self-esteem
Indigos are very, very powerful and at some level feel this. They are born with a tremendous sense of integrity and act like royalty; kings and queens. A part of their soul remembers the power in them and they are born with an attitude that they belong here. Even if the life of indigo is destroyed or bought down to dust and rumbles, their sense of self-worth will never die. They realize how massive they are (not in the size, but in the power of their soul) and can take on the world on their own, or even the cosmos for that matter. They feel they have the power to change the maps of the stars.
11th sign you are an Indigo - You have rage and anger
Underneath the exterior personality of the Indigo lies a very powerful soul. Because of things which usually is accepted by the society that children are powerless and an ordinary human is to remain an ordinary and submit to those in power, a powerful emotion of anger and rage starts to develop in their character and personality which rejects these socially constructed norms. Their anger erupts like a volcano and rage like a wild tornado. The lies which they see in the society often acts as a catalyst to their powerful anger and rage.
12th sign you are an Indigo - You can connect with other dimensions
Connection with other dimensions – Indigo’s often have experiences with their spirits guides. They are also aware that parallel realities exist and their sensitive nature helps them to connect with the spiritual beings of the higher dimensions. They can also have strong spiritual and psychic connections with animals like cats, peacocks, and owls. Although, they understand everyone has their own spirit guides and with an open mind they could tune in with them as well.
13th sign you are an Indigo - You are intuitive
The greatest gift the Indigo is blessed with is their intuition. The gift is called “clairsentience” which means “clear feeling”. It makes them feel clear truth in situations and within people. They are an excellent judge of character, and their body is a well-tuned divination tool. The purpose of this gift is to sense the old low vibrational energies and to usher them with new energies of cooperation, manifestation, and integrity. Indigos with their intuition may see, hear or know things that seem unexplainable.
14th sign you are an Indigo - You are a leader
Leaders – Indigos are strong-willed personalities who prefer to d their own thing rather than comply with authority figures/parents. Hence, service-related jobs and routine repetitive tasks make no sense to them. Indigos prefer to work alone or in a leadership position. They are here to lead, to enforce change, look for new creative solutions to old patterns which are ultimately leading to the destruction of humanity. The leadership trait is here to help us create a new world, to make monumental changes in how the society functions, not to destruct which is currently happening in the world.
15th sign you are an Indigo - You are depressed
Depression is common to the Indigos. Resistance to the society’s structures and the destructive intentions behind the outdated processes leaves the Indigo feeling helpless and their self-worth is hugely diminished. They genuinely want to contribute and create immense value to the society, but the false structures and the failing system doesn’t serve them well. Because of this distress, they may have a lot of problems in finding their place in life, which can be a factor for depression. Also, the inability to have a social mask and the inability to really connect with people on their level of social masks leaves them with immense desire to connect with people with whom they can express truly on the level of heart and soul, not the mask. Due to this rejection of society, they are prone to drug, alcohol addictions and suicidal tendencies tend to occur in them. However, once they realize their true power, they can be very strong, determined and valuable individuals.
16th sign you are an Indigo - You want to make a global difference
This instinct will never let them be at peace with themselves until they recognize it. Their soul’s sole purpose is to help raise the consciousness of the planet and to help the planet ascend and change its way of functioning. This will make them feel restless, frustrated and impatient as they feel they are wasting their time. With inner work and a lot of self-reflection, they can tune into their passion and start to work on their mission which will then make them very balanced individuals.
17th sign you are an Indigo - You are hyper-active
Often Indigos are diagnosed with ADD and ADHD since they appear impulsive (their brain can process information faster) and they require movement to help keep them better focused. Energetically, Indigos are vibrating at a much higher frequency so they can get scrambled by negative energy (human or machine). As indigos see the state the world is really in, they feel an urgency to get things moving around here. They feel things are NOT alright just as they are and they need to get moving. The realms or planes in which they existed might have had very soft matter and manifestations would rather take place much quicker than what it does here on earth which leaves them wondering why things are so slow here.
18th sign you are an Indigo - You are love
There is no love like indigo love. It is often found the love they express or want to express with people, especially their lovers, is too strong for them. They either take it as coming on too strong or as commitment and try to marry. Neither is the case; most people just haven’t experienced such intense, unconditional love before, and they don’t know what to do with it. When indigos can’t find another indigo to pair up with, they’ll often be seen with older people who tend to be more sensitive and more capable of seeing the gem in the indigo’s soul. (In general, indigos don’t have hang-ups about age as they see people for what they are, not what their label is). Indigos are warm people at heart and enjoy contact. This is because most humans have been infected by a cultural sickness. Indigos express themselves as to all humans deep down want to express themselves but don’t have the clarity or bravery to do: lovingly. Touch, hug, kiss, “I love you”. They love for the god damn pleasure of it. However, for the reasons previously described indigos are loners, so they may not actively express this trait.
19th sign you are indigo - You are Spiritual
Indigos are drawn to spirituality fairly young or in their early adulthood. They take up practices like yoga, meditation or are drawn to healing arts like reiki. Indigos have more problems with food and environmental sensitivities since their system is more finely tuned. They turn into vegans sooner or later as their body will start to reject these heavy energies of dead animals. Their bodies respond strongly to toxins and a healthy diet is more important than usual for them. They respect all life forms as they understand all life is precious. They are finely tuned and connected with nature and can spend days alone in nature at peace without the interference of technology or the material world. They have also gone through a massive spiritual awakening.
20th sign you are an Indigo - You are sensitive to electronics
Indigos are sensitive to electronics such as watches not working and street lights blowing out as they move under them. Electrical equipment malfunctioning and light bulbs fluctuating or blowing out are common in the presence of the Indigo energy. This is due to the high electromagnetic variations caused by the high energetic Indigo being.
Conclusion: Are you an Indigo child or an Indigo adult?
If you feel you are an Indigo and resonate with the above characteristics, please know you are not alone and there are a lot many like you. Wanting to be discovered and waiting to be nurtured. There are generally three things we Indigos need: Self-understanding, connection with people who understand and actualization of your personal power.

Don’t think you are supernatural, you are only natural as these traits exist in all human beings and we are only helping others come to an understanding of it.
