When my Indigo son was a toddler, he refused to accept my inability to remain present. If I was preoccupied, bogged down in my every day chores or just trying to grab a minute for reflection, he would do something to make sure that never –ever happened again. He had such a strong ability to connect on a vibrational level that he would feel abandoned if I allowed my mind to go anywhere but there with him. Luckily for me, that only lasted a few years… yes, years! Parenting is a hard job. Parenting an Indigo Child adds a whole other level. They push us to be authentic in every way. You aren’t allowed to go through the motions with a smile on your face as you are worrying about the bills. You either smile or worry, but not both. It just makes no sense otherwise. He eventually realized that just because my mind had momentarily left the building didn’t mean that I had. And the fact that he’s able to be present and authentic at every moment, doesn’t mean the rest of the world has that capability. He seems to be o.k. with the fact that at least Mom tries.
If you’re parenting an Indigo Child connect with others who are as well. It’s important to be with people who are facing the same issues, as our children push us out of our comfort zone and into so much more. A Reiki center is a good place to start. They are familiar with the concepts these children were born knowing and help us to see the beauty instead of pulling out our hair. Hope to see you there.
