The United States has been making monumental legislative decisions about the human rights of LGBT citizens recently. Hearing the news and debates surrounding this topic, I think about how reminiscent this is of the Civil Rights Movement from the 60s. Then my mind inevitably drifts to the future where I wonder what human rights I may fight for as a sensitive citizen. Indigo Child Hailey Carr is fighting for her rights as both a sensitive and LGBT person- “World War III” she calls it. Indigo Children worldwide are joining Hailey in the fight to be themselves and live consciously. Every time I see Hailey ecstatically dancing, I know we are winning.
Why do you think Indigo Children are here?
hc: Indigo children are here for many different reasons. We serve in life where we are needed. We are warriors of the present and many previous lives before this one. We are the fat bouncers at the front door of Club World War III.
How did you discover you are an Indigo Child?
hc: As a child my mother always told me that she believed I was a "Star Child" or "Indigo Child" but I never quite understood what that meant. I knew it meant I was special but, as a very skeptical child, I figured she was telling me this because I am her daughter and those are the types of things you say to kids. I never gave it much consideration. Farther down the line growing up, I started having an abnormal amount déjà vu, could feel others emotional energy the moment I stepped into a room, and sometimes I was able to see their auras. It would always slightly nauseate me. And then, around the age of twelve, I really started to have an inner connection with the moon, the sun and the stars, the air surrounding me, the earth I walk on and the water I heal in. I truly felt like I could embrace and understand the universe and Mother Nature’s gifts better than others. After losing touch spiritually for a short while, I realized that my life is so empty that way, so I began to practice my spirituality again. My older sister gave me the Indigo Children book my senior year in high school while I was dealing with an inner-struggle. I already knew before reading too much of the book that this was who I am. It was such a warm sensation to know that there are others out there like myself and that I truly do have a purpose beyond that of what many others are willing to accept within themselves.
Do you know other Indigo Children?
hc: I do know many other Indigo Children and can usually tell when I am introduced to an Indigo Child right off the bat. Thanks to my sister, Taylor Carr, and friend, Abby Oliver, I now have friends like me!
What is your favorite part about being an Indigo Child?
hc: Connection. But sometimes the connections can become overwhelming.
What is the hardest part?
hc: The hardest part is when it consumes you and nobody seems to understand a thought in your mind. It can drive you to a nomadic state of mind.
What Indigo gifts do you practice?
hc: I practice tarot, energy, aura and heart readings. I also am a beginning learner of Chi. I try to practice discipline within myself. I dance to feel connected to the universe. And I am a multi-dimensional amateur philosopher.
Do you know what your purpose is yet?
hc: Maybe not the answer anyone's looking for, but right now my purpose is to live on life's terms and enjoy the days that are presented to me every morning (of course topped off with a mindful vision of success to come shortly down the road).
What advice do you have for other Indigo Children?
hc: Don't lose yourself. Be exactly who you are. And never let anyone have too much influence on you. Also, remain casual and balanced. We can throw ourselves out of whack very quickly. But always, ALWAYS be spontaneous and outrageous.
What advice do you have for people who are not Indigo Children?
hc: I think the most important thing for anyone, outside of the Indigo Children family is to always keep an open mind and remain level. It's also important to not let life drag you in the dumps. Get out and do things that put you on a ledge, feel the thrills of life, and take everything in life for granted and nothing at all.
Thank you, Hailey!
