I read the books The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived and The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children back in 2002, not too long after they were published. At the time I was trying to learn everything about ADD / ADHD that I could. I was open minded and could relate to much of the of what was being described. It made sense to me but as an overwhelmed, anxious, stressed 28 year woman with ADD / ADHD I didn't find the books helpful. So, they went to my ADD / ADHD bookshelf and collected dust for about a decade until they were donated.
Over the past few weeks I have seen a lot of people on social media linking to the article Some Psychologists Say ADHD Sufferers Are Actually ‘Indigo Children’. The ADHD Indigo "Psychic" theory isn't really new. It's been around for at least a couple of decades. Since it's becoming popular again, I think it's time for me to begin to discuss my views and experiences.
As an ADHD Coach and expert I can say I do believe there is a connection. I have spent the last 2 decades educating myself about ADD / ADHD and attended numerous ADD / ADHD conferences and events. I've gotten to know many people with ADD / ADHD too. I've gained an understanding from scientific and personal perspective.
Over the past 4 years I've been on a bit of spiritual journey or quest. I've taken several metaphysical type classes and attended spiritual events and conferences. Many of the Psychics, Mediums, Intuitives, and Healers that I've met have ADD / ADHD themselves. The stories many of these people tell are strikingly similar to many of the stories people with ADD / ADHD have shared too.
YES, I believe there is an ADD / ADHD "Psychic" Indigo connection. What does it mean? I'm not quite sure yet. I will be posting more on my blog as I learn.
