25 Characteristic Traits Of An Indigo Child

Characteristic Traits Of Indigo Child

An Indigo Child is truly special, rather calling them special seems like an understatement. They see the world in such a different and unique way, so much so that, if you ever peek into their visions and soul, you will be left dumbstruck. But not every child is an Indigo Child, and maybe that’s a good thing. Let’s take a dive into the world of Indigo Children and what makes them, them. Shall we?

Who can be called an Indigo Child/ Adult?

These are the “Gifted ones”. They are the ones who are meant to change the way humanity has been working for all this time.

Their mission is very clear; they are just here to reshape the very concept of reality and challenge the hitherto structures of society.

The Indigo child/ adult are often diagnosed with behavioral problems like mood disorders, ADHD etc.

They are even given medication for these problems that they don’t have at all and these medications (obviously) have an adverse impact on the brain of the Indigo child.

Thus, it results in the loss of contact with their true nature which is not only a loss to them but it is also a huge loss to the whole civilization. This only goes to prove one thing which is that the Indigo Child/ Adult are largely misunderstood.

If you are an Indigo Child/ Adult, you will surely have the following 25 characteristics:

25 Characteristics Of An Indigo Child

1. You may be brilliant but that brilliance is more natural. It isn’t premised on the grades that you get. You may not be getting the best grades but everyone around you appreciates and is very aware of your intelligence.

2. You may be extremely creative and would love to make new things by using your creative reservoir. You cannot stop yourself from being creative even if your life depended on it.

3. You are searching for the answers to the Whys of life. This means that the reason behind everything intrigues you so much more than anything else. You just want to know why things are the way they are.

18. You don’t have a lot of role models in your life.

19. You have a very strong sense of intuition. You know what will happen and when will it happen. This intuition helps you deal with problems in a better way. Even your intuition about people is correct.
