Indigo Children - Have They Lived Before?

Have Indigos Lived Before?

by Wendy H. Chapman
This is a good question and one with differing viewpoints, not only amongst interested persons, but also different messages between the channelings of different entities. It's an interesting question. Why do we want to know this? Well, there is some thought that knowing about past lives will help figure out current life karmic lessons. Also, I've heard it said that some Indigos seem to have no compassion - that they just don't understand why someone else would be angry or hurt or sad about various issues that come up and therefore inadvertently hurt others feelings. If this is true, then they would need training specific to this. I've also heard that Indigos are particularly empathic and compassionate and will go out of their way to help someone who is hurting. This contradicts the first idea, so which is it??

Even for myself I can't find out the answer for certain if I have been around before or not! I have remembered past lives myself and been told about several of them by a channel/psychic I went to, but another channeling psychic that I really respect told me I had never incarnated before and came from a certain realm of Angels as a representative during this age. I didn't ask her about being Indigo. I've come to understand the reading about being an Angel as indicative of my divine nature, as we are all divine deep down, but not necessarily that I haven't been here before, though she is certain I haven't. She says it is possible to pick up on other people's past life memories when we access the Akashic records via the grid. Perhaps sometimes we actually go 'home' between lifetimes and don't want to come back.

Nevertheless, when I was 5 yrs old I came downstairs speaking fluent French. Since no one in my family knew French and my mom was too freaked out to go find a tape recorder, we never found out what I was saying. I had never been exposed to French before in this lifetime. I know I have lived several lifetimes in Egypt since I can recall certain specific things about it. I believe I also lived in LeMuria since I resonate so strongly with certain areas of the Pacific and Hawaii and can remember various aspects of crystal programming. One psychic told me about a life married to my ex-husband of this lifetime in Vermont. She said he was a minister and described the church. I could visualize it clearly and remember going on a driving trip with my parents where we came to this church in VT and I recognized it immediately. And there were others that I've been told about and a couple others I've seen in guided meditations. Well, so I believe I've been around before at least a few times.

So, I had thought for awhile that maybe I was Indigo because I had many of the traits that indicate Indigo-ness, but after reading more about life colors in several sources and taking a couple aura quizzes and having a few aura photos done, it seems I'm a mix of Blue, Indigo, and Violet. There is some indigo coloring in my aura pictures. That was pretty disappointing at first, to think I might not be a PURE Indigo. I thought it would be cool to be totally Indigo, but hard, too. One of my aura pictures also had a lot of bright turquoise blue in it as well as dark blue - indigo. Another aura photo had ONLY gold all around my head and in a shape like a pope's hat. Cool! I had called on the Christ Light Energy earlier that day to fill me and surround and protect me. Why were they so different? How do those aura cameras work anyhow? Recently my mother has told me that when I was young - 5 or 6 yrs old, a friend of the family who was a psychic and also physically blind, told my mother that I was surrounded by blue light.. dark blue.. Hm!!! He was surprised by it because it was so strong.. and apparently not very common ;)

Jan Tober, co-author of "The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived", spoke about Indigos at the last Kryon Midsummer Light Festival in Santa Fe this July and described the Indigo Overlay as what makes many people over 20 feel they might be Indigo. It's like a cloak we've adopted in order to be able to work with and appreciate Indigos. Also, if I understood her correctly, she said that many of us DID come in Indigos, but changed our life-color because it was too difficult to be Indigo at that time - the world just wasn't quite ready for us. This group of people may still carry bits of Indigo which would appear as an overlay. My feeling is that if we did come in Indigo and changed colors, that perhaps now that it's more acceptable and a bit easier to be one than it was 20 yrs ago. If this is so, maybe we are changing back at least somewhat. I wonder if it's possible to change life colors entirely if someone Wanted to.

It is primarily this group of people with Indigo Overlays and those who were born Indigos who do understand at least partially what, who, and why the Indigos are. These two groups realize that one of their goals is to pave the way for the Now Indigos to come in and to help them to change things like education, etc. I welcome that opportunity!

I have heard and read differing messages from channels about whether or not the Indigos have incarnated before. The best understanding I can get from this is that the pre-Indigos who are usually Violet with heavy Indigo overlays, have lived before and the new ones who are coming now have not. OR there is a subset of the Indigos that truly have never lived before.

Some of the Indigos seem to have problems being empathic and understanding others and seem to need to be taught about feelings, while some who seem to fit the Indigo traits in other ways are extremely empathic. The ones without compassion just don't seem to understand why someone else would be angry or hurt or sad about various issues that come up and therefore inadvertently hurt others feelings. If this is true, then they would need training specific to this to be able to deal with other humans. This is interesting because it fits with the idea I've heard in several channelings of Earth being the only planet where people have emotions and feelings. A child who has not been incarnate on Earth before may indeed have difficulty with understanding emotions. On the other hand, it's also quite possible that the ones who appear to be callous have just been hardened over time due to painful experiences they have personally weathered and have chosen to be apathetic as a copying mechanism.

On the flip side, I've also heard that Indigos are particularly empathic and compassionate and will go out of their way to help someone who is hurting. You may have heard the reports about several Indigo children in a classroom sitting in a triangle formation around a child having an emotional trauma until the center child calms down. They seemingly do not even know they are doing it since the observer does not see them communicate aloud about it, but they probably do know. Oooh.. maybe the thing is that having lived before gives us that empathy that makes it too difficult to continue being Indigo and fighting upstream? Maybe that's why some people 'had' to change?? That's an interesting possibility.

Then there is the idea that the children of the Indigos, who several writers have called the "Peacekeepers" or "The Crystal Children" will be the ones who have not incarnated before - at least to EARTH. These are the ones that will help with the transition to communication and friendship with the other planetary beings that will shortly be coming.

Why do we find this particular question so interesting? Perhaps just because there are conflicting answers coming from equally reputable sources. What are the implications if they have or have not? Well, there is some thought that knowing about past lives will help figure out current life karmic lessons. Also, the controversy about whether they're discompassionate or overly empathic is rather important. You'll notice they're usually called one or the other, but rarely in the middle. Perhaps the two concepts are indeed joined and it is their extreme sensitivity that can create either one of the responses to another's suffering. It seems this may be the key. As for the original question about if Indigos have lived before.. well, that remains to be discovered.
