Indigos are highly intuitive- they know what feels right to them and anything else is disruptive to their system.
They may have imaginary friends or see spirits: “dead” people, guides, angels, and/or extraterrestrial beings.

They are fascinated and easily bond with plants, animals, and crystals.

All First wave Indigo's 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.
They feel very foreign to this planet and a very high percentage of Indigo's 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
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.

They feel more than others. They cry when movies are sad and belly laugh when they are funny. Whatever emotion you are feeling in the current moment, you feel it fully. Indigo children have “advanced emotions.” They are so attuned to inner-self that every feeling that bubbles to the surface feels more potent than it does for others.
They struggled in school. While indigo children are highly intelligent, the way their mind works doesn’t conform to traditional ways of thinking. They don’t do well with rigid structure, because they don’t understand the need for it.
