Auras and Indigos

Last week I had my aura read by Glenny Davidson using a Biopulsar Reflexograph. A friend of mine had an aura party, and we each received a quick reading and a print out of our aura.

Mary's AuraWhen Glenny first looked at my reading, she asked me if I was an Indigo. I’m sure I looked at her a little funny. I have heard of Indigo Children before, but I really don’t know that much about them. I looked it up once several years ago, and I remember thinking that not all of it applied to me. Apparently, though, I read like an Indigo.

What surprised me most is how uniform the color is. There are numbers that correspond with different organs of the body, and mine were very close to the same range.

Wikipedia’s article on Indigo children is quite skeptical:

Indigo children, according to a pseudoscientificNew Age theory, are children who are believed to possess special, unusual and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities.[5] The idea is based on concepts developed in the 1970s by Nancy Ann Tappe[6] and further developed by Jan Tober and Lee Carroll… The interpretations of these beliefs range from their being the next stage in human evolution, in some cases possessing paranormal abilities such as telepathy, to the belief that they are more empathetic and creative than their peers.

Descriptions of indigo children include:

  • the belief that they are empathetic, curious, strong-willed, independent, and often perceived by friends and family as being strange;
  • possess a clear sense of self-definition and purpose;
  • exhibit a strong innate sub-conscious spirituality from early childhood (which, however, does not necessarily imply a direct interest in spiritual or religious areas);
  • a strong feeling of entitlement, or “deserving to be here.”

Other alleged traits include:[9][11]

[Sarah] Whedon believes parents label their children as “indigo” to provide an alternative explanation for their children’s improper behavior stemming from ADD and ADHD… According to research psychologist Russell Barkley, the New Age movement has yet to produce empirical evidence of the existence of indigo children, as the traits most commonly attributed to them were akin to the Forer effect (i.e., so vague they could describe nearly anyone).

Reading over that list, I don’t get the “that’s me!” feeling (like I do when I’m reading about Pisces traits, for example). Yes, I consider myself to be empathic (though not enough to call myself an empath), I’m smart, and I have a strong sense of purpose (I didn’t always have that). I don’t really have a strong aversion to authority, not that I would classify as stronger than the next person’s, anyway. And I don’t think I qualify as having ADD or ADHD.

Even reading some of the Indigo support websites, I’m still not sure it fits me. I like what I’ve read about turquoise auras, on the other hand.

Love, healing, generosity, emotion, feeling, the unconscious, intuition, individual responsibility, creativity , communication, self reliance, independence. This color has more to do with feeling and creative expression than with rational thought.  These colors between green and blue, the shades of  turquoise, blue green and or aqua relate to transformation, evolution, change, sharing, waves,  metamorphosis, transmutation, the inner teacher, and the spiritual heart or Thymus Chakra, a transpersonal chakra on the hara line (deeper aura level) about midway between the heart and the throat. This is a chakra which connects us with energies of spiritual love and mystical communion and the Divine or God concept (however you name it ) as teacher and as Sacred Lover and beloved.

I feel like that totally fits me, especially the part about individual responsibility. I’m big on that one!

What do you think? Do you believe in Indigo Children? How about the color turquoise in the aura? Do you think it fits me?
