Indigo Children See The Future
Status: New Age Mumbo Jumbo
Indigo Children is a new-age term for children whose aura is indigo colored. These are the kids whom medical science would diagnose as being hyperactive or having ADD (and many lay people might diagnose as spoiled brats). But according to the indigo-child theory, these are actually children with very special powers. Nancy Ann Tappe, the psychic who first described the concept, says that Indigo Children are "souls with an evolved consciousness who have come here to help change the vibrations of our lives and create one land, one globe and one species. They are our bridge to the future." The Skeptic's Dictionary has some good info on the subject.

According to an article from the Orange-County Register, one of the powers being attributed to Indigo Children is the ability to see the future. Take this example:

When Carolyn Kaufman was getting her daughter, Ariel Carreno, ready to go, Ariel had an unusual request.
"Mom, we need to take an orange," Ariel said.
"Why?" Carolyn asked. Carolyn explained that this was a pizza party, and that an orange would probably be out of place.But when Ariel insisted, Carolyn grabbed an orange and took it to the party... So Ariel carried her orange into Chuck E. Cheese. The party went just as planned. The kids ate pizza. The kids played games. The parents endured the noise. Then, the birthday girl asked for the strangest thing. An orange.

Wow! The kid brought an orange to a party. Try to explain that, skeptics! Carolyn Kaufman also offers an example about her sony Tomy:

After fights with his sister over what to watch on TV, Tomy has broken five VCRs in the family home using only his energy force, Kaufman said. In some families, kids might get grounded for breaking expensive electronics. Not in Kaufman's house.

I'm sensing it would be great to be a kid in the Kaufman house. You could get away with anything. "It wasn't my fault, Mom. It was my energy force."

Indigo's are just old souls... the mere fact that were living at this time in history is something very important. Secondly the 26,000 year cycle is proven astronomy... It's hard to try and explain alot of this because of the depth ive already read. lol If your guna cry about my typing just don't respond eevryone i know my age doesnt follow proper structure cause its way slower wen on stuff like msn... Maybe if I was writing something important or as I wrote essays in school, I don't see reason for you to get your panties in a knot... To be honest everything I've read seemingly coincided with one another from the mayan history and calender im sure you've heard bout it... It is one of the wonders of the world. The planets have orbits I'm sorry but if you don't understand that then maybe read up on it. lol, How am I supposed to tell you 3 books and like 40 web pages of information in this little box!:) I do got some links an shit if you want. Only reason I come debate this stuff is to try an get the people who can't seem to realize the fact that you were born to die and death is just as important in the cycle of life as any other part.. if you haven't realized it yet I strongly believe in reicarnation..every souls is here to learn life lessons with the current physical situation they are presented with. For example a fat kid watching a fit guy eating cake and not gain weight to fast metabolism. Since I was young I was always interested looking at the stars and realizing each was a sun, most bigger then our own and all capable of supporting a planet like earth. The whole soul thing kinda just hit me as a realization or just the true purpose behind living the kind of life you are given.

Oh yah you must be hearing about all the valcano activity along with the severe weather conditions that are being predicted by reliable sources like nasa... They also have evidence that the sun's solar flares and some other crap discovery channel played for liek 2 hours lol have changed and that the next time it hits earth is coincidentally in 2012(not actually solar flares hitting the earth lol somehting with magnetic fields). Also discovery channel provided me with the information that the last ice age was liek 10,000-12,000 years ago.. This coincided with the planets orbit passing through the galaxy twice every 26,000 years.. once again I said that the indigo thing is just the tip of the iceberg.

How can you be so much superior to the the rest of us when you haven't even mastered proper spelling, punctuation, capitalization, or grammar usage?

Sorry, but all you're doing is making a fool of yourself.

There's also a game called Indigo Prophecy, in which the main character sees the future.

Well, I guess if you have Indigo Children, it's only natural that some of them will grow up to be Indigo Moms, right?

And yes, if you're wondering, the Jenny McCarthy you'll see there is the same one who infested MTV several years ago.

I do like purple...

But I don't think that makes me an indigo child.
This little snippet of my life happened when I was like 7 or 8..
Anyway, because I like purple, at this one new age bookstore. (my dad was probably looking for Buddhism stuff) I saw this little amethyst stone and it was pretty so I asked dad If I could have it.

The bookstore also had a cat. (Don't all great bookstores do?)

uhm, anyway, So my dad lets me have the amethyst and i'm giving it to the cashier lady and she says "lemme see yo hands!" (or something like that) ... now being a tomboyish girl and always playing outside, they were kinda dirty so I was shy and reluctant to give them to her. I thought she was gonna try and sell me some special soap or something but...
she just looks at my hands and says "you gots an old soul"

OH JEEZE WOMAN, way to build up the suspense! Anyway it was a big relief that she didn't comment on how dirty/dry my hands were, and I could care less how old my soul is. *phew*

Pray my Indigo children of the future, Yea gather up thy harvest of crystals that go swish and head to the portal of exit by which the postman comes. Ignore thy parents as they are but vessels of truth juice that have burst forth into transcendence.
Leave thy earthly world and all its trinkets, ignore all signals of warning and gloriously as thou hearest the sound of a million trumpets blaring in glorious union as the choir of resplendent majesty shouteth "Get ye out of thy bloody way!" feel the warmth of truth as thy holy vessel is squelched upon the front of ye bus of arrival. Feel thy body going smush as you embrace the warmth of loving hands caressing you as you bounce off the bus and into oncoming high speed vessels of joy. Hear them screaming in joy and delight "What a bloody mess"
Yea seek truth in the joyous rapture of the eternal light of future as you rise gracefully out of your body (parts) and seek higher realms of ecstasy in the nether regions of places yet unbeknowest to the lower peoples.
Yea I command it for I have seen many a dozy pillock wanting a transcendent experience who ignores a stop sign.

Most pro-Indigo sources I have checked out indicate that 90-95% of children born after 1992 have these special indigo powers. So why do parents tag their kids as indigo based on "unusual" abilities? Its the non-indigo kids who should seem out of the ordinary, compared with other kids and teens.
Posted by Tom Harwick  on  Wed Sep 20, 2006  at  02:46 PM
Yea, all children born are of the indigo, but not only ye children of humans be, but in animals many are now of colours differed.
See how the dog communicates with his inner indigo by licking his arse, see the cat transcend life as it lies down, entranced and aware of all levels of joy.
Sweet is the rhapsody of the indigo, long may thy parents see indigo as a shining example of neglect to a child, give thanks that drugs will solve none of ye problems and that only accepting the light and truth of indigo and the supreme levels will make thee happy.

I pray for all of you. The hatred and malice that you are putting out into the world be removed. I pray for your children and all the people you influence. I pray that you have plenty in your life and eventually see what God's existance brings to all in this world.

Here's an example of a real Indigo child.

I really, really hope you don't believe the nonsense in that article, Harry. I'm assuming that you realize that it's patently ridiculous. Phew, that's a load of crap!
Posted by Cranky Media Guy  on  Fri Oct 20, 2006  at  02:32 PM
I am an indigo, and I know for a fact it has nothing to do with my parents' process of punishment, seeing as how they didnt' go easy on me when i did something wrong. Plus, they have 5 kids, so if that were the case, don't you think we would all be indigos? To be honest, i don't really care if you geys believe in us yet. If you're so narrow-minded that you can't see the possibility, and all you are capable of seeing is things that are proven, then i feel really sorry for you. the intangible REALITY, because it is real, is much more fun. Furthurmore, none of the comments i saw against the possibility of indigos seemed very intelligent. Im not going to write why each "reason" doesn't work, but what is it with people to make them think that their logic includes everything and therefore must be right. Face it, logic can never be foolproof the way you use it because you don't know everything, and alot of times, if you leave something out, your arguement is stupid.

Raven, I honestly don't know what you're trying to say there.

Here's the bottom line: if you believe that you have an "aura" of ANY color, the burden of proof is on YOU. It doesn't matter what you BELIEVE; things either exist or they don't. Period.

If, as you say, your "aura" is real, then you should be able to demonstrate that it exists under controlled scientific conditions. If you can do that, there is a million dollars waiting for you to collect.

Until you can do that, all you really have is something you choose to believe in because it makes you feel special. I'm sure that's a lot of fun for you, but it doesn't make it REAL.

Before you go down this road, let me again say that the burden of proof is on YOU to show that auras exist at all, let alone that you or anyone else has an indigo one. We do NOT have to prove that they DON'T exist.

Yes, I know, I know; you "don't care" if we believe you or not. Uh huh.

It's the normal people like you, the bullies with their sarcasm and irony that caused indigo children to withdraw, to protect themselves so they wouldn't become like you
Posted by Eva  on  Mon Nov 13, 2006  at  09:39 PM
Interesting... how can one participate to obtain this one million dollar prize ? What are the conditions ?

Here in Indonesia, magic is considered a norm, and part of some people's daily life. An example is Debus, a martial arts combined with magic. Certain masters can make themselves completely invulnerable.

However, some of indonesian muslim community members are frowning upon these practices, because most of these are black magic; enabled by co operating with jinn or the devil. Therefore, these magic can not be used for good purposes; only for show off, neutral, or worse, evil purposes.

A few other photos on Debus :

Thats funny Harry, Would an indigo be able to stop a bullet or maybe contain the fallout from a nuclear blast?
How many indigos does it take to magically unscrew a lightbulb?
One to distract with annoying and repetitive arguements about how indigo is the colour of the future and half a dozen others to change the bulb manually because they are too weak to do it on their own.
I dont hate people, just idiotic ideas like "indigo"
How about growing up and stop believing in fairies?
Posted by Amber  on  Tue Nov 14, 2006  at  07:07 AM
Haryy in Indonesia, try this link for info on the Million Dollar Challenge.

They can probably arrange for someone in Indonesia to test any claims you might have.

I have the ability to predict the future. My prediction is that either the "Indigo" kids are never submitted to proper scientific testing or, if they are, they will fail and the excuse will be that the skeptics with their "negative energy" caused the Indigos to withdraw and fail to demonstrate their amazing abilities.

Eva, you've talked yourself into believing nonsense and are rationalizing why it won't prove to be real.

It's really simple, Evan. Produce an "Indigo" child, submit him or her to actual testing to determine that he or she has an ability that defies the known laws of physics and win a million dollars. Stop making excuses.
Posted by Cranky Media Guy  on  Tue Nov 14, 2006  at  01:55 PM
Hi Charybdis, thank you very much for the pointer. Much appreciated.

Unfortunately, they refused to test claims involving any dangerous devices. I assume this includes knife / sword / etc. This pretty much ruled out all the Debus masters.

The details are here :

If they would make an exception, they'd better prepare the prize 😊

Thanks again Charybdis.
Posted by harry  on  Tue Nov 14, 2006  at  03:46 PM
Amber, if only you'd read my previous post, you'll realize it was not about indigo kid. The invulnerability is a special ability of the Debus masters.

I know some "indigo" are just disillusioned people.
However, by logic, it's not logical that because of some, that means all are also (fake).

One thing though, magic is not natural. It's not supposed to exist in our dimension.
One who possess the ability usually is a company to jinn and the devil. Very rarely we'll be able to find a person who's a wielder of white magic.

"Produce an "Indigo" child, submit him or her to actual testing to determine that he or she has an ability that defies the known laws of physics and win a million dollars. Stop making excuses."

We are no laboratory rats.

Can you stop someone's physical emotional pain just by touching them, or from afar? Can you feel the universe pulsating, see the physical world move, not being static, can you not feel the boundaries of your body? can you know what someone is going to say or is thinking? So you have intuition about people and there intentions or nature? can you call someone mentally if you focus on it? DO you have visions/dreams of experiences that will happen to you or other people?
Do you feel connected/wired? Do you, can you believe what i am saying is TRUE?
From the way you are writing my guess is your answer will be "no i can't" i don't know if you even care". But this is what reality/life is for me, And no i am not lunatic, this is how my days are, at times i am hypersensitive, most of the time i feel ecstasy looking at the world, feeling it, just looking at trees, and i watch empty space, and can see what it's made of. Put me in any field, talk about most concepts and i can understand, I know things that i don't know how i know them. I see, but not with my eyes.
You might think i am just really "out there" and that you can't do these things i am talking about, But YOU could do it to, these are abilities that all human have in different degrees, that can be developped. Some people like me are just born with it more developped. That is the only difference between an indigo and a non-indigo person. If you are someone who is rational, don't you sometime think that some behaviors of our society are just insane. People are alienated, they don't have a core, they don't know who they are. We shield as children in un-supportive environment so we don't become like them, or give in to peer pressure. Just because you are in a certain way doesn't mean somebody else can't have a different experience of life. You DON'T KNOW everything. It's about openness.
So if "scientists" say it's true you will believe it? Even if they something is in such way doesn't mean it's certain. People thought the world was flat once. Who would have imagined man would go to space 100 yrs ago. Or that there will be computers like the one you are using? Do you think the little characters you are reading are real? What about digital data? Or radio waves? Why is it that if you can use a cel phone or a bluetooth to send signal our mind can't do the same.

My last question is have you loved someone? Really loved and felt connected? Have you made love with someone and experiences the exchange of energy in a kiss per example?

I hope that my message will help you reconsider, or question even if it's a little bit and help you show respect for people like me.

Blessing and Enlightnment for all of you.

Posted by Eva  on  Tue Nov 14, 2006  at  08:14 PM
I'm sorry for all the typos, i didn't reread it
The last think i want to say about magic and devils is.
It's only different frequencies of energy you get in tune with and can manage. Magic exist, you can do it to heal, do good or for personal satisfaction.
But is shouldn't be used for personal interests because there is a natural order in the universe. If you let it do it's work and remain open it orchestrates you life and things that would have never happened to you happen. And life takes you to places you would have not imagined, that might have been better for you. Just remain open and trusting and let life do it's work .
Posted by Eva  on  Tue Nov 14, 2006  at  08:25 PM
Harry, they refuse to test subjects in situations where failure would result in injury or death. There's usually a law against that sort of thing, and the law doesn't care if you're a willing victim or not.

Eva, you make outlandish claims, then refuse to prove those claims. Why should anyone believe you possess paranormal powers when it's a known fact that your perceived symptoms can be the result of known neurological disorders?

Basically there are mundane explanations for what you claim, ranging from physical/mental disorders to wishful thinking/self delusion to outright lying. If you want to be taken seriously then you have to be willing to prove your claims. If not then we have the right to conclude you have no paranormal powers. Your refusal to prove yourself is a strong indication that you are aware you are a fraud.

Hi Charybdis,

I thought when you have signed a waiver agreement, then all risks will be yours, and not others'. But I might be wrong.

Agree regarding proving your case -- it's easy to think things while it's not. It should be measurable.

Otherwise, you need to stop thinking about it, since it will only distract you from things that matters - your family, friends, your life, yourself.

"We are no laboratory rats."

Gee, even for One Million Dollars, you aren't willing to take some simple tests of your "abilities?" Fascinating.

"So if "scientists" say it's true you will believe it?"

If your "abilities" are tested scientifically and you pass the tests, yes, I will accept that you can do things which are currently believed to be impossible. Before then, though, nope.

"People thought the world was flat once."

That's true. Then we TESTED it and found out it ISN'T flat. See how that works?

"Why is it that if you can use a cel phone or a bluetooth to send signal our mind can't do the same."

Because our minds don't have little circuit boards designed to do what Bluetooth does in them.

Let me extend your "logic" here for a moment. Many times on this board, in debate with people like yourself, I have stated that I can fly under my own power. No wires, no external power source of any kind. I merely leap into the air and soar just like a bird. Planes can do it, right, so why can't I?

Prove that I CAN'T fly. Remember that, using the logic you have employed during this debate about "Indigo" people, you have rejected the notion of backing up an extraordinary claim with evidence. Therefore the burden of proof is on YOU. Prove that I cannot fly under my own power. I SAY I can, therefore I CAN, which is your position concerning your "Indigo" abilities.

Are you beginning to see why we ask you to demonstrate your "abilities" before we accept their existence?
Posted by Cranky Media Guy  on  Wed Nov 15, 2006  at  01:20 AM
Harry, the law will not allow you to engage in lethal actions against another party. Waivers don't matter, if there's a good chance someone will be killed it's still illegal, and the law doesn't take invulnerability into account.
