COMMENTS BY NANCY:   I post this information because so many young and older persons spend their lifetimes feeling out of place on this planet.  Most have no idea why they do not fit into the “status quo.”  They only know the loneliness and bewilderment.

Knowing who we are allows us to proceed with fulfilling our purpose for incarnating on planet Earth.  As you read the characteristics of an Indigo ( Starseed & Crystal), you will intuitively relate at a deep inner level.  You will recognize yourself or your child, your student, family member, or friend.

As you begin or continue your journey to Self-Knowledge, my free course on Esoteric Astrology will assist you.  Instructions may be found on my Way of Love Blog:

Each of us is a most exciting being … enjoy your journey of discovery into Self!

Where It All Started

We have been hearing so much lately about “Indigo Children,” new babies, toddlers, and children who seem to have what I term “Hyper Intelligence” mentally, psychically, and spiritually. These children are making their statements loud and clear – I am here…..Pay attention to me! ….. and people around them are responding to their voice.

But let’s go back to where it all started taking shape, back to the 60’s, back to the time of political, spiritual and sexual revolution…..a time when nothing would ever be the same again, a time when the earth took a major energetic shift….a time when our societies “rebels of the world” were starting to have children, a time when the music changed…..when Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, The Beatles, The Doors, Iron Butterfly, and Led Zeppelin created a new paradigm of lyrics and tone expression…..where an explosion of self induced drugs took people to spaces, places, and dimensions that are not of this world…(and sadly, some of them never returned…)

This is where things started taking form for the Indigo Ray…. Beings from another octave, same tones but a higher octave…a higher vibration…a higher awareness, and an entirely different perception! The ways of the lower octaves, though functional for the lower octave scale, just plain do not work for the higher octave beings, and the more you try to make them conform to the lower octave scale, the more resistance and frustration you get from both sides because….it just will not “fit” or “comply.”

These beings are very brilliant and psychic….but many of them have been labeled by our education systems as “hard to teach,” “rebellious,” “slow,” “dyslexic,” “quiet” or even “retarded” because the current standard scholastic evaluation systems did not include tests that show the “true colors” of these extraordinary beings. The sad outcome of our inability to understand and cultivate the ultra intelligence of these Higher Octave Beings, is that they have been ridiculed, rejected, abandoned, outcast, and many of them became loners and recluses from time to time because there was no where to go but “inside.”

The truth of it all is that these phenomenal Indigos have been sent here by their own volition to change the planet’s thought systems …the consciousness grid…. the entire structure. Our old outdated rigidity imbedded in this plane, with its heavily protected ignorance is now being abruptly transformed by those who embody the “Indigo Ray!”

First Wave Indigo Knights Profiles

These are some of the qualities and challenges that First Wave Indigos experience. Most Indigos can relate to at least 90% of this list.
~ Were born en masse (about 62%) between 1969 and 1987 (With stragglers before and after – 30% were born in the 50’s).

~ Highly intelligent in their “Own Way.”

~ Are literally “wired differently” than other people.

~ Know in their heart and core that they are here “on a mission” but many don’t remember what that is or how to go about it.

~ Have an inner awareness that what is being taught in churches and schools is NOT accurate and know there are hidden agendas around the lies that are being accepted by the masses as “Truth.” This is extremely frustrating but inspires them to uncover the cover-ups and expose The Real Truth!

~ Have a strong sense of truth, ethics, justice and freedom. (That is why “authority figures” many times irritate and frustrate them). When these are in jeopardy, will give their “all” for their cause, and many times feel they would rather die than give-in to tyranny and deception.

~ Many have strong or unusual Psychic and Telekinetic abilities.

~ Have extraordinary levels of compassion.

~ Have purple/UV as their favorite color or see it in their dreams.

~ Have an affinity to Knights, Castles, and Dragons.

~ Shut down psychic abilities because it scares people.

~ Feel like they could be one of the characters on the 1980’s television series “The Misfits of Science” or one of the young people in Xavier’s school for the gifted in the recent movies from the comic books “The X-Men.”

~ Many times get along better with animals and nature than people.

~ Have a bond/connection to the trees, and nature in general.

~ Can relate well to children and or the elderly.

~ Feel very comfortable lounging, and would rather sit on the floor on a pillow than in a hard, uncomfortable chair. (Would prefer sitting on the floor in school, and business meetings if they could get away with it!)

~ Are very attracted to soft natural fabrics in their cloths and fuzzy blankets are the ultimate!

~ Many times get very impatient when someone doesn’t “get to the point.”

~ Creative, inventive, and very intuitive.

~ Involve themselves in human/animal rights efforts.

~ Have an innate sense of “oneness” and connectedness to all of creation. Get confused and disturbed when others don’t share their reality of “at-one-ment.”

~ High capacity for love, and therefore others may feel uncomfortable by their intensity.

~ Very sensitive, sometimes “Hyper Sensitive” and may not be able to distinguish between the emotional fields of those around them and their own personal emotions.

~ May go through periods of apathy and cynicism as coping mechanisms.

~ Intense longing for “their own kind” or Soul Mates, but don’t know where to look.

~ Have what I endearingly term H.D.D. or “Hug Deficit Disorder” and need immense amounts of physical touching, hugs, and love to “cuddle.”

~ Because of being misunderstood and then betrayed, may develop strong trust issues, and therefore keep many of their thoughts, feelings and opinions to themselves.

~ About 30% have difficulties expressing themselves, especially in writing. NOTE: If you read some of the poorly written correspondence from some of these First Wave Indigos, you would assume they were uneducated and nearly illiterate, but the truth is, that these same people can also be speed readers and can absorb information in seconds that would take others minutes to understand and retain.

~ Very disciplined when properly motivated.

~ Get bored and or frustrated in school.

~ Male Indigos (and many Females) for the most part don’t “do authority” very well because most of the time they are smarter than those in authority.

~ Many find themselves in “Alternative Schools.”

~ Female Indigos seem to be able to cope better with the school systems than their male counterparts.

~ Many are labeled “Dyslexic” and find themselves in “Special Classes” at school that usually never work for them.

~ Indigos have a strong desire to know “why” and if they don’t see “the point” in something, (or if is it isn’t explained properly), will feel it is simply not worth their time/energy and will either react with resistance or just simply “blow off” the people/things that seem not worth their time and energy.

~ Innately have their own ways of calculation and many have been accused of cheating in school because they do the answers in their head and cannot show their work.

~ Indigos have an evolved awareness of how things work, therefore, many of the rigid rules and methods of learning Math, English, and Physics (NOT metaphysics or quantum physics) make no sense to them.

~ All First wave Indigos have what might be termed as “A Gift of Healing” ….whether it is making people feel better with their humor and wit, hands on healing, animal and plant healing, healing with music and tone, or healing with new “unproven” methods.. ·some of which are natural and need no external training for.

~ Many Indigos have “Telepathic Healing” abilities and long distances make no difference to the efficiency of their work.

~ Because of their expanded perception, unusual creativity, wanting to try new things, and running way ahead of what is being taught in class, many were diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Disorder, and put on Ritalin as children.

~ Most Indigo’s (especially males) have a high innate aptitude for computers/electronics and or auto mechanics. It is common for them to “Just Know” how to operate and trouble shoot with very little help from a book or an instructor.

~ First Wave Indigo’s are extremely creative, and express this innate skill in many (and often times OUTRAGEOUS forms.) These skills manifest in: Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Decorating, Photography, Writing (in sometimes very extreme and unique ways), Making Blueprints and Prototypes, Composing and Playing Music (even if they have never had lessons), inventing games, and creating new & more efficient ways of doing things.

~ Very few Indigos are interested in aggressive sports such as Football and Hockey. They would rather spend their physical exercise time and energy in personal achievement and outdoor sports such as track & field, skateboarding, mountain climbing, cycling, kayaking, etc. They are also attracted to discipline and self-defense sports such as Fencing and Martial Arts

~ Because of their feeling so foreign to this planet, a very high percentage of Indigos have been put on “Antidepressants” to make them appear “Normal” and fit in our society·.this is just a temporary fix though, and only adds to their challenges.

~ Many Indigos are drawn to Theatrics, Drama, and Stand-up Comedy. In these venues they can “pretend to be someone else” when actually they are using this as an outlet to vent and express their own views and pent up emotions. It is also a place for “misfits” to find a place of refuge and “fit in.”

~ Because of their feeling so “alien” here, many go through periods of severe grief, loneliness, and displacement …and may turn to drugs, alcohol, or attempt suicide for a way out.



Quotes from Barbara Marciniak’s “PATH OF EMPOWERMENT:  Pleiadian Wisdom for a World in Chaos”

With Comments by Nancy B. Detweiler

Angelic Lord of the Trees

Taken from:  Geoffrey Hodson’s KINGDOM OF THE GODS

“Your ancestors in both the distant and recent past were capable of navigating reality with ways and means that are forgotten to most people in the modern world.  Nearly all of written history has been purged of the fascinating aspects of life involving experience with paranormal versions of reality.  Over the ages human beings have been led to believe that they are less than who they really are….  People could travel the cosmos and explore their greater reality….”

“Your ancestors knew their senses were for interacting with nature, and when they wanted someone to watch their children, they were able to create an energy vortex around a favorite tree.  They could then walk into the forests and fields and maintain communication with the tree, and the tree would use its own energy, in cooperation with the mother and father, to watch their children.  People once knew that the system of nature was a necessity of life, and they used the knowledge to empower themselves to survive and thrive in cooperation with the natural world.”

“One of the most subversive battles for control of the human mind began thousands of years ago as organized religions sought to draw people away from their sacred connection with nature by convincing them to ‘worship the gods’ in buildings designed to mimic nature’s majesty.  Much later … the Industrial Revolution … created a drastic increase in people leaving the countryside to seek urban living.  Insanity and poor health became more common as people lost their connection to nature and then, too, lost the ability to tell the difference between one stream of time and another.”

“An accumulation of rigid social and cultural beliefs, limiting the confines of time and space, have disconnected you from the experience of direct learning from nature.  The resulting systemic confusion within your cellular circuit board has become detrimental to humanity’s spiritual growth….  By claiming your inherent abilities to move your conscious awareness around the field of existence, you will experience direct knowledge and be able to tell the difference between truth and deceit.”

“Even though the political management of your planet appears to be racing out of control; from a higher perspective, the flamboyant scourge of lies and deceit stimulates your growing awareness to awaken to your true spiritual identity, while you occupy a human form during these times of tumultuous transformation.  As spiritual common sense prevails, an agenda of fear-based entrainment has no hold on an awakened mind.  Conscious awareness, dear friend, is the key to unraveling the mysteries of the multiverse.”

Angelic Mountain God

COMMENTS BY NANCY:  During my 11 years as a State-employed Social Worker and Rehabilitation Counselor, I spent my career in the inner city slums—before urban renewal.  Try to imagine a child growing up in the slums almost totally deprived of the beauty of nature, invigorating fragrances, and the joy of creating beautiful forms such as in art and music.  Only then can you begin to walk in the shoes of the child, and later the adult, growing up deprived of God’s beauty.

At one point, I worked as a rehabilitation counselor in a high school for the mentally challenged.   At lunch time, I would take several of my depressed students for a run around the school grounds.  They were outdoors—exerting their bodies and breathing fresh air.  Because they were out of breath from running, they had to breathe deeply.  We could smell the freshly mown grass.  They loved it and we found that is hard to remain depressed while outside running on green grass, with trees swaying in the breeze, and fresh air filling our lungs.

One day I, and several of the counselors, took a busload of students on a field trip to Hanging Rock State Park, near Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  Most of the students had never been outside their small world consisting of the slums and the bus ride to their school.

They had never seen cows and horses grazing in an open field.  They had never seen the bubbling water of a creek or the little fish and bugs swimming in it.  They had never seen a colorful leaf floating like a boat downstream, maneuvering its way around the rocks.  They had never felt the joy of wading in the cool water.  They had never seen a mountain grow higher as we approached it.

When we reached Hanging Rock, we enjoyed a picnic lunch prepared by the school cafeteria.  They had never been on a picnic.  They had never sat at a picnic table amidst the trees and watched to be sure the ants and flies did not join in on the feast.  They had never walked on a nature trail … never climbed down the rocks to a waterfall … never sat on a rock and felt the spray from the falls leave droplets of water on their cheeks.  They had never experienced the challenge of hiking to the top of a mountain to see a breathtaking view that extended for miles.  They had never felt the closeness of white fluffy clouds hovering overhead, as if heaven was communing with them.  They had never called out their names and listened for the echo.  They had never seen the glorious variety of wild flowers growing along the mountain trail.

Their senses had become deadened from the lack of experiencing nature’s stimulants that energize and nourish the soul.  Forty years later, I remember that day as one of the most marvelous of my life.  I saw first hand what nature, including the vivid colors, can do for the starved spirit.  I understand why children growing up with senses deadened by the lack of stimulation, by the lack of hope, by the lack of adventure, often end up with deprived adult lives.

These children were so excited many reported not being able to sleep that night.  I saw genuine smiles of inner joy.  One girl with cerebral palsy would not stop until she had reached the top of the mountain and seen the world from a high peak.  That was the fulfillment of her dream.  She was sick for a week afterwards from the unusual exertion, but her smile never left her face—because, “she had been on a mountain top.”
