But for some it’s a struggle to become aligned. It can be overwhelming and unnerving when a faulty support system is in place or life seems to create stress that feels unmanageable.
Just recently, my boyfriend, who is a photographer, shared with me some pictures of three kids. Their father had commissioned some individual as well as family portraits of his daughter, who was ascending into her senior year of high school, a son who was in college and another son who was just graduating college.
All three were transitioning into a new phase of their lives. Seeing these pictures made such an impression on me—their laughter, their innocence, and then in more serious pictures, their depth. Their eyes told stories of all-knowing wisdom, yet they were just getting ready, in many ways, to venture off for the first time on their own. Their confidence and curiosity blended with questions about how the world really works, bellowed from their black and white images.
Thinking back to that time in my own life, I realize that I feel freer now, as an adult, than I did when I was first going to college after high school
It took a little experience for me to have confidence in my own voice and find my way through the currents. Some are blessed to see their entire future ahead of them. It took me, however, some time to get my wings.
In “The Book of Secrets” by Deepak Chopra, he uses the example of butterfly metamorphosis to illustrate how everything is One. He explains the process of how the caterpillar builds his cocoon and then morphs into a butterfly, “What goes on invisibly inside the chrysalis remains deeply mysterious.”
We know that the caterpillar actually morphs into a liquid consistency before reconstituting into the body of a butterfly. What Deepak refers to as “One reality” comes from his understanding that there is Universal intelligence at work. Cells, hormones and chemicals know what to do to reconstitute into a butterfly from a caterpillar without being told when, what or how to do so. It is this natural evolution that happens to all of us that we cannot control. Our hearts beat, the caterpillar morphs, the day turns into night, all connected through time and space.
In this harmony of physical evolution and Oneness, we, as humans, experience an emotional and spiritual metamorphosis as well
From child seeker to adult wisdom, we evolve. Indigo children come through this life to shatter illusion and to build truth. As an Indigo adult, their journey continues on another level. Learning and experiencing the world as a child, then growing up and believing in the power to move mountains through courage—this is an Indigo finding their way to divine purpose and Joy.
I can now offer advice that would have helped me on my journey starting out at the age where I thought I knew everything, and in fact, had no idea what was in store. My intent is to assist parents of Indigos and Indigos themselves who are moving to the next chapter in their lives, finding their place in society.
