A common trait of Indigo Children is intelligence. But that can be difficult to recognize and understand. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Too smart for your own good.” That can easily be applied to most of the Indigo Children I know. Indigo Child Charles Crumb is so smart, people his whole life have been trying to drug him until he stopped thinking for himself. I’ve seen so many Indigo Children get older, gain independence and start redefining the world. Maybe it’s time we redefine intelligence and let the young Indigo Children define the world. I imagine it would be a very peaceful, happy place with plenty of fresh air and stargazing.
Why do you think Indigo Children are here?
cc: This is a tough question for me. Intuitively I know why we are here but this is such a deep question that I am having trouble finding words to describe it. We are here to make a change in the collective consciousness of humanity. We are here to remind people of the power of love. As Jimi Hendrix so eloquently stated, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." And Indigo Children have a phenomenal capacity for love. Many of us, including myself, feel like we came here to Earth from other places and/or other dimensions where the ideals of Peace, Love and Happiness are more important than they are here on present day Earth. We want to see Earth become more like Heaven and we know it is possible. We know it can be done.
How did you discover you are an Indigo Child?
cc: Towards the end of 2012 I was surfing the internet and went to a website called in5d.com. When the page opened, the very first thing that caught my attention was a link that said, "Are You an Indigo Child?" For some reason I felt like I HAD to click it. I had no idea what an Indigo Child was and, as best as I can remember, I had never heard of or at least never paid any attention to the term Indigo Child. There was a long list of characteristics that Indigo Children have and it said that if you have many of these characteristics yourself then you might be an Indigo Child. As I read through the list it felt like I was reading a biography of my own life! Every single characteristic described ME! I was beyond amazed because up until this point I had felt like I was probably just crazy and that there was nobody else alive like me. Simply knowing that I was not alone and that there where many others like me was an extremely emotional event for me. I started crying tears of gratitude for finding this information because, up until that point in my life, I was convinced that I was alone in this world.
Do you know other Indigo Children?
cc: Yes! After realizing that I am an Indigo Child, the first thing I wanted to do was find and connect with other Indigo Children. I did this mostly through the internet with social media sites such as Facebook. The majority of the Indigo Children I know are people that I have never met in person. But I talk to some of them on the phone and have had the pleasure of meeting a few of them in person. Meeting other Indigo Children, especially in person, is always an extremely fulfilling experience for me. I am truly grateful that I am not the only one around and was actually quite surprised to see how many other Indigo Children there are alive in the world today. We are living all across the globe in all parts of the world. I have connected with Indigo friends from many different countries and from every continent (except Antarctica) on Earth. But I wish there were more of us... I live in a city of nearly three million people and have met less than 10 Indigo Children in person.
What is your favorite part of being an Indigo Child?
cc: My intuition. I know things before people even tell me. And my spiritual vision. I can see things in the spirit world that are truly too beautiful to describe with words.
What is the hardest part?
cc: School was the hardest part for me. My IQ is extremely high (at 152 it is in the 99.95 percentile range) but I had great difficulty in school. The US school system that I was put through is not set up to handle the needs of gifted children. The US school system is more about compliance and indoctrination than it is about learning and giving children an environment to truly flourish in. I had “discipline problems” throughout school starting as early as 2nd grade and graduated from high school at the bottom of my class. I actually should have not graduated because during my senior year I failed sophomore English for the third time, I failed junior English for the second time, and I failed senior level English class as well. To this day I have only read two books from cover to cover even though I have tried countless times to read a book. My mind wanders when I read and it is difficult for me for this reason. Reading and writing are definitely not my strongest skills. The principal of my school changed my grades on the condition that I would join the military shortly after high school. I kept my word and joined the U.S. Coast Guard. I excelled in the Coast Guard advancing very quickly until I saw some grotesque corruption and violence first hand. This sent me into a deep depression and I told my chain of command that I was done. I told them that I would rather die than continue to take part in what we were doing. I truly believed that I would be killed or incarcerated for my actions and I was okay with that. Thankfully, I was given an honorable discharge after serving less than two years. But before they let me out, I was put on antidepressants and for the next 11 years I was on a mental and emotional roller coaster trying to find “the right meds." This was an extremely dark time in my life but I managed to wean myself off of all prescription medication and haven't taken antidepressants since 12/21/2012.
What Indigo gifts do you practice?
cc: I have many spiritual gifts but I am still learning to use them at will in a controlled and beneficial manner. I learned very early in childhood that these gifts can really freak people out, so for a long time I kept them all hidden. Thankfully in this day and age people are opening their minds to metaphysical reality and I am now able to be open about my gifts for the most part. When I am around someone that is easily freaked out by psychic phenomenon, I already know this and, out of respect for that person, I will keep them hidden. But when I am in the right company I can do some truly amazing things. I am an empath. I am clairvoyant. I am a psychic medium. I am telepathic. As an empath, I know how people feel before they tell me and I often know what they are thinking before they tell me. As a clairvoyant, I have the capacity to see outside of the realm of physical vision. I can see the colors of peoples auras when I have my eyes closed. It doesn't matter if the person who's aura I am reading is sitting right next to me or they are on the other side of the world, I will be able to see it if I want to. I can see things happen in distant places even on the other side of the world. I have practiced remote viewing and can usually do it at will but, out of respect for people’s privacy, I try not to do it very often and only when I truly believe it to be necessary. As a psychic medium, I have connected people still alive in the physical world with their loved ones that have passed on to the spirit world. This is one of my most fulfilling gifts to practice and it is a wonderful feeling when both the person still alive and the person that has passed both realize that they can communicate to each other through me. I have helped people find closure and have helped people from both sides pass on messages to their loved ones in ways that they did not believe to be possible. This blows my mind every time it happens!! Also, I have helped many people cross over to the spirit world that have died physically and gotten stuck or lost in the transition between the two worlds. The spirit world feels VERY different from the physical world and it is common for people in the process of crossing over to have difficulty navigating the spirit world and making sense of it. I love to help spirits cross over. It is a beautiful experience every time. Telepathy is the gift I would really like to develop. At the moment my telepathic skills come and go and they are unpredictable. Sometimes it’s like I have a direct link and other times it’s just not there. I would like to develop this gift further.
Do you know what your purpose is yet?
cc: No I don't think I really know yet. As of right now I believe my purpose is simply living in the moment more fully. My purpose at this time is to remember my true self and develop and utilize my gifts. I feel like my life purpose changes through different phases of my life.
What advice do you have for other Indigo Children?
cc: Practice YOGA!!!! Stop watching TV. Spend more time outdoors. Know that you are not alone. Remember who you are. If at all possible, do not take drugs and do not get drunk. I know Indigo Children can have trouble with substance abuse. I most definitely have had my own struggles in this area. But we are most powerful when we are clear minded and fully present. I will not give medical advice but I will say here that personally I am absolutely against the use of any form of psychiatric prescription medication. I took them for 11 years but, in hindsight, I never really needed them and would have been MUCH better off without them.
What advice do you have for people that are not Indigo Children?
cc: Practice YOGA!!!! Stop watching TV. Spend more time outdoors. Open your heart. Feel more and LOVE more. Open your third eye and see more. Open your mind. Open your mind. OPEN YOUR MIND.
Thank you, Charles!
