Psychologists Think That ADHD And ADD Sufferers Might Actually Be “Indigo Children”

According to the American psychologists, children diagnosed as ADHD or ADD sufferers may actually be “Indigo Children”

A great number of medical professionals have dismissed the traditional ADHD diagnoses associated with long – term social and behavioral health problems and took side with the parents who said that their children have supernatural powers.

VICE’s Gavin Haynes went to New York to meet Indigo Children born in the 1990s to understand more about them, how they feel, and about their perceived psychic gifts.

On this journey for answers, Haynes gets his aura read, undergoes a holistic dentistry examination by a mother and daughter Indigo pair and meets the rap duo “The Underachievers” that preach Indigoism as a way of life.


The behavior of Indigo children

  • They are born knowing they are unique and deserve to be valued.
  • They understand that they are here for a reason and expect you to understand that too
  • They are aware of their worth.
  • They don’t settle for absolute authority, or having no choices. The educational or hierarchical systems are good examples of that.
  • Indigo children can’t follow the same rules we did as children. They are rebellious.
  • They believe that everything should be given creative thought and don’t fit into strict systems.
  • Usually are quiet because they feel misunderstood and lost, unless they are with other indigos.
  • Trying to scare these children with old control methods like – “Wait till your father gets home” has no effect on them.
  • It’s important their personal needs to be fulfilled.

Having 14 or more of these may be a sign that you are an indigo. From 11 – 13 it may be a sign that you are an indigo in training. If you are an adult with these signs you might be a lightworker.

  1. Honestly you just sound like a bad person and a bad parent! My parents thought I had ADD/ ADHD and pumped me full of meds but I see spirits I get distracted because I am a medium I hear messages from those whom I e never met. I see accidents before they happen.
    Too much going on up there. I bet u pump ur kids full of pharmaceuticals too.

  2. Sorry but this article is a walloping load of laughable crap. Sorry I have ADHD and so do my children, and even though we are creative and charming, psychic we are not. Too much buzz in our brains. As far as the other stuff, doesn’t fit every person with ADHD nor make you indigo or something. Ha ha ha! True psychologists and phychiatrists and medical professionals are not saying this.

    • Let me tell you something, you must not have ADD or ADHA, and let me tell you why, I am 44 years old and I have two autistic kids, I have had ADHD my whole life, I walk by light poles and they turn off and on, which would be called a liner, I feel death, even my parents, and even the crows come and let me know when somebody dies, so maybe you’ve been
      dis-diagnosed, but don’t make fun of the energy that us younger and older indigo children feel, sorry for your luck.

  3. I think adhd is undiagnosed hypo/hyperthyroidism. THe medical profession leave lots of people undiagnosed and/or do not treat them properly leaving them suffering. I never realised I was hypothyroid until I was in my 40s but I know that is why I struggled so much at school and in adult life. The lovely private Dr I went to see once tested the thyroids of women in prison and they nearly all had thyroid problems, it is also linked to so many things like fibromyalgia, dementia, infertility, depression, mental illness, heart problems etc. Sadly so many people are treated for the symptom and not the cause because Drs are dictated to by the pharmaceutical companies. Also any Dr who does help is at the risk of being struck off as they have to go outside the medical guidelines. It is so wrong.
