Building Bridges for Indigo Children

If you have a sensitive child who has been diagnosed with ADHD or any other developmental delay, you may want to attend the upcoming “Building Bridges” conference, September 15-17, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The organizers emphasize what’s miraculous and amazing about so many of these kids. And parents who’ve been through the diagnostic process will be there to share what works and what heals.
Here’s what the organizers say on the conference website:
From the grass roots, everyday solutions implemented by everyday people, to the exciting research and practical wisdom of the recognized gurus in the field of child care, there is much to give hope and solutions for us all.

As the mom of a nearly 18-year-old special needs child, I cringe when I see the term “Indigo child”. Why? Because of the judgemental attitudes of the people I met and the tone of the articles I’ve read on the topic. The feeling I got was that by naming an actual problem (which can then lead to finding both medical and educational solutions) a parent was being negative and seeing their child as broken, rather than as an exciting new strain of sensitive human. My daughter is doing great now, and I credit all of the interventions we employed, not because we saw her as any less of a miraculous, beautiful human being, but because we acknowledged that she had real problems and needed help. Parents of special needs kids get a lot of judgement thrown their way, and it hurts.

Some of the problems are based on what the body needs. Of course there is a name for what ails you. I heard about chewable calcium. For bipolar, omega-3 is needed. Flax is benficial to the body. We face the problem of digestive aids missing in every meal. No wonder the doctors are having a field day over so many simple problems.

My grandaughter was moving too fast at a very young age of about two or three. She had no control. Now she is a young teen. If anything can help the in the process to heal pass the information on.

The comment by Linda is exactly the kind of thing I’m talking about. Why does she assume that I wouldn’t know about (or have tried) nutritional interventions to help my child? Why does she judge doctors as “having a field day” when, in my experience, they have been nothing but concerned, open-minded, and competent in caring for my child. And why would she call the kinds of problems that bring intelligent, compassionate, answer-seeking parents to tears on a daily basis “simple”?

Working with and having an Indigo child or a Magenta Crystal Child can be very challenging and overwhelming for parents and caregivers.
Indigo the label has taken on many things – originally it was used only to describe the color of light in the aura that was very prevalent.
As for the digestive issues, several researchers have found that many of the supplements are not actually absorbable that is why there is a deficiency – the body is unable to make use of the thing taht it needs. Its like the body is sensitive or allergic to the thing it needs most.
Sandi Radomski has been using energy pscyhology techniques to clear the energy toxin or sensitivity of a person to the supplements and having amazing outcomes – suddenly they are actually able to absorb the nutrient they need so badly. Its very interesting work.
Indigos are often very sensitive. They pick up on energy that others do not and often respond to the energy environment rather than just what most adults are noticing.
For instance, we live outside of Washington, D.C. – needless to say there are a lot of people here with a lot of intense emotional energy tied up in policy and future and war and all types of things that keep the whole area full of emotional tension. We have a pandemic of ADD, ADHD and other behavioral/emotional disorders in our children.
I like to think of Indigo children as giger counters or emotional energy barometers. They especially respond when peoples actions do not match their emotion vibration. We smile on the outside and say “Nice to Meet You,” when on the inside we are seethingly angry about something a spouse or colleague did that morning. These children respond to the disconnect – the inauthenticity. They find it excruciatingly painful to be around – it feels to them like the sound of someone’s running their fingernails down a black board – painful.
For years, I have been teaching indigos to work with their energy fields and know what is their energy and what is separate and how to respond to it. Recently, I have found that treating their emotional sensitivities with work like Sandi Radomski’s ( makes a profound difference in functioning and decreasing anxiety.
Dr. Delores Rapp has a video clip on children she labels as sensitive – – that really helped me see the behavior of my two year old differently – that is when I decided to apply Sandi Radomski’s methods. I have seen dramatic changes in his behavior and eating habits in the last two months because of it.
I wish you ease and grace with all your indigos encounters and lots of healing.
These ones – the Indigos – are here to change the world. They are here to challenge the existing structure and all the institutions and they are doing their job very well.
I hope you find the info helpful and I wish you very best bright blessings,
Katherine Wright Desai

I did find this helpful and comforting, I try to keep the energy around my house as positive as possible, I have 2 children and my youngest has been diagnosed with ADHD, he is currently on medication and it has helped an incredible amount, but it does not seem to be working as good this year and I am thinking it has to do with the school enviroment. He had such a positive teacher last year and this year he has 2 teachers (they are preparing the kids for middle school) – and they seem to be almost nitpicking, he is figiting with his pencil, per the teacher he is not being disruptive but it seems to be getting on her nerves, well esle would she bring it up. I am checking into private schools, but I am leary because we have some non-conventional beliefs, I worry even about taking him to a behaviorlist because what are they going to think if my son talks about his aura or a nightly visitor. I will definetly be checking into some of these other methods.
