This review is from: Indigo Adults: Understanding Who You Are and What You Can Become (Paperback)
The book begins by explaining some basic background in astrology to understand how it relates to the idea of Indigo Souls. Throughout the year, we have the 12 phases of the Zodiac starting with Aries and ending with Pisces. There is also a greater cycle called a Great Year which takes around 25,920 years. There are also cycles within cycles above that. These larger phases take around 2160 years to complete. The current age is the Age of Pisces with its own energetic quality emanating from the center of the galaxy and affecting human behavior, thoughts, and emotions. The age of Aquarius began entering around the 1700s with December 21st marking the zenith where the two phases intersect and the new age begins to take over. December 21st marks this new phase of our galactic cycle around the Milky Way, and there are souls and soul groups associated with the Age of Aquarius incarnating to accompany it: These are your Indigo children or adults. The term "Indigo Children" was coined after a clairvoyant saw an Indigo colored aura around one of these souls.
The authors explain how these different galactic cycles have their own characteristics which affect human behavior, thoughts, and emotions. They use the analogy of the cycles of the moon. During a full moon the tides are high. It is also associated with restlessness among individuals. Furthermore, scientific studies have shown higher rates of suicide have been linked to phases of the moon, particularly during a new moon or a full moon. The word "lunatic" is derived from the Latin word "luna" meaning "moon" after all. The phases of the Great Year are characterized by their own 'mood' which affect us collectively in a similar way. Aquarius is characterized by understanding, group consciousness, individuality and intellectual understanding. This new energy works primarily through the crown chakra bringing forth new aptitudes of intelligence:
"Indigo energies and Indigo Souls began coming onto the planet around the early 1700s. These early incarnators have the toughest job of "breaking the ice" and bringing in the first of the new energies. They have ushered in the Industrial Revolution, electricity, scientific thought, and the new ideals of liberty and freedom." (p. 22)
"The Industrial Revolution, then the discovery of electricity (electricity is ruled by the sign of Aquarius), and now the emergence of the Information Age are the result of the new capacities of intelligent thought that are emerging through our third eye." (p.18)
Indigo Souls have some of the following characteristics: rebellious to current society and its institutions; gentle and respectful by nature to avoid conflict; a division between what they say and do on the outside between what they think and feel on the inside; a sense there is a better, freer, more liberating way to live life; can detect when people are lying and can sense their true emotions; have a passion for truth providing food for the soul; realize they live in a world full of deception and lies; acknowledge they are spiritual beings but are not religious; an innate desire to grow spiritually and to make the most of their time on earth; often scared to speak their truth for fear of being ridiculed; heightened sensitivity and more tuned into to the energies around them; see everything as interconnected and as one; very conscious not to harm other people, plants, or animals; very sensitive when it comes to relationships in fear of being hurt; tuned in to a deeper meaning of life and want to know their purpose for being here.
Souls or soul groups associated with the Aquarian Age are not better than any other soul. Strictly speaking, there is no superiority in spiritual terms; we are all spiritual beings on our journey back to Source taking our own paths:
"[Q] What makes one person an Indigo Soul and another person not an Indigo Soul? How do these differences come about?
[A} The Earth is like a train station, and the trains coming in are filled with souls coming from different dimensions, different soul groups, different evolutionary streams, and different sources in the Cosmos. So just as in the train station, a certain train comes at a certain time and has a certain scheduling; a certain group of souls have a certain scheduling as to when they are to arrive. That scheduling is based on great cosmic cycles--a kind of cosmic clock. These are cycles of astrology that slowly move and turn, opening certain gates in the Cosmos so that certain energy streams can flow. So when we talk about Indigo Souls I am referring to a cosmic picture of vast evolutionary celestial energies in motion according to these cosmic clocks." (p. 201)
An enjoyable and easy to read book with plenty of information which may resonate strongly with some of you awakened souls out there.
