Where to start… I found out about a month or two ago from talking with a childhood friend of mine that I am an Indigo Adult. He was telling me about how he is overly aware of things, you know like his soul, his mortality and just everything. You know when someone tells you to stop and smell the roses every once in awhile? Well, he smells the roses every second, not just once in awhile, all the time. Well, I’m overly aware too. I always have been. He’s telling me all of these other things and I’m just sitting there thinking oh my god, me too.
Everything he is telling me is just ringing true with me and the more we talk, the more information and I just start feeling a little overwhelmed and need to take a step back. I understand it all but my brain can only process so much information at one time, especially at the beginning.
So I found this eBook in the B&N Nook store called Indigo Adults for $9.99 but I couldn’t afford it right away, I finally bought it on January 20th but I didn’t actually start reading it until the 4th because it just so happened that my blog bought the farm right around the same time I bought this book. I tried reading it but I couldn’t focus on it because I was too busy thinking about my corrupt blog database.
I started reading it on February 4th and I finally finished reading it today and my mind is completely blown away. There were so many things in there that just had me thinking OMG ME TOO! It talked about children with ADD and I was diagnosed with that in my 20’s but I was also diagnosed with a learning disability when I was a child in elementary school so I’m thinking that because they didn’t have ADD back then, I should’ve been diagnosed with that instead. Although I guess it’s both but still, it helped me to learn something about myself in that respect.
I wanted to discuss some things that I highlighted but when I went to look for an example, all of my highlights were completely gone. They disappeared from my Nook for some reason, that bugs me because I spent so much of my time highlighting instead of reading. So I have nothing to offer as an example besides the ADD thing. I guess the only thing there is left for me to do is read the book again. I’m going to read it again anyway because I think that my mind was so blown away that I didn’t learn a few things so I want to go over it again.
Do this test, if you can relate to most or all of those then there is a good chance you are an Indigo Adult too. I relate to everything in that bullet list. Knowing that there is a name for it helps me in regard to helping me understand myself a lot more than I did before. I would suggest that if you relate to those things in that list then this book will blow your friggin mind.
I am interested in hearing from some Indigo adults to compare notes with. If you are an Indigo Adult, please, leave a comment and I will definitely get back to you.
