  1. This describe me exactly I’m 13 and I’v always felt difrent in some ways but my parents aren’t vary supperstishes and am sacred to tell them all the other tests i’v taken all say i am too the only thing difrent is the old age thing also is it normal for us to be able to just feel what people are thinking thank you all so vary much i love you all

    • I think that it is common for Indigos to feel others’ emotions. I would recommend getting tested as an empath. Also, I get what you’re saying about parents, mine think I’m mental for believing in this stuff. But don’t let it get to you.

      • So, I am an indigo/starchild. I’m an empathy, I have telepathy,physchometry etc.. I do have quite a few abilities but so does my mom, everyone says I’m an old soul but I’m grateful that my moms understanding about this stuff because its easier to work with her. I’m only 15,but my sister is more of the handeful type of indigo so its easier for both my mom and I to work with her. Sometimes you don’t even have to explain anything to your parents. If they don’t believe you then screw what they say, be you.

        • I’m 16 and i have 20 of these characteristics. But i really don’t know what to do or yhink. I have no one to talk. my parents never understand me and they necer try to talk either. So kinda lost

          • I am told that I am and indigo child as well. I have always been interested in Wicca/Neo-Pagansim, and have found my niche. Last year, when I was 14, my mother happened to find me a mentor to help me hone my gifts. She is the one who suspected me being an indigo child. My mother has always said that even as a baby, my “eyes looked like they didn’t belong to a baby, more like an old man.” and she always got comments about how I looked old. We found my mentor when looking for a new place to board our horse, and she happened to do gestalt training. We knew it was meant to be, so we chose to board there. My mentor has helped me with my natural empathy abilities, my affinity for nature, seeing auras, telepathy, and many more wonderful gifts. She said that she sensed something was different about me right away when her cat that didn’t normally like strangers was following me around and letting me pet her and pick her up. I am happy that my family has been very accepting and I know I am very fortunate. I hope that more people will be more open minded about these wonderful things we can do.

          • My advice is find a mentor. Look up grounding and shielding. Look for reiki. Research Wicca/Paganism. Meditate. But a mentor will be easier and much more helpful.

  2. I found out about this indigo thing a few weeks back, and I was amazed, because only I know in my heart how I fill every 24 questions there.. I’ve been reading alot about, watching documentaries and have done a few of these tests..

  3. Hello, I am 13 years old. My knowledge in indigo children is new. I’ve always felt different or that I don’t belong in this area that I am in. I researched indigo children and took tests and I always pass. I believe that I saw ghosts when I was really young but I don’t know if it was a dream or not. I am confused. I now do not see ghosts or anything from the spiritual world. I want to know how I can strengthen this ability. Im not sure that im an indigo child but when I found out about it, I felt so much better. I just want confirmation.

  4. Im 15 years old and ive known for a long time i wasnt like everyone else and ive been through a lot of hell to come to where i am today and all i can say is after all the research ive done and tests ive taken i know who i am and im ready to continue growing and i hope that i meet more people like me. Its time for a change and im willing to help make it happen. We are special and are meant to make a difference. we must stand together and stand strong…

  5. I always thought I was different and when I learned what an INdigo child was I became interested. I researched around just to make sure it wasn’t a random label we could put on anyone. I will have my mother take this test (as I couldn’t take it truthfully) and see if I am an Indigo child.

    • All the signs say yes. I took nearly every quiz and got the same result and even my third impartial party got a score of definitely Indigo for me.

  6. I am 13 years old, I often feel weird to me, I feel I am different from other people, I also feel I have a better ability to judge a case, I also often feel sensitive feelings in judgment, and I also felt there was nothing understand me.I also often feel there is a very curious feeling passionate in me, but I do not know what makes me feel like it.Therefore it, I began to study about children indigo.dan I have been following some online test about children indigo.saya feel most of the statements in the test is within saya.tapi I felt did not have the ability of telekinesis for example indigo children, can read minds DLL. so till now I am still confused about im indigo or not

  7. I’m 13. (like most of you here), and for 19 questions my answer is YES.
    It has been 6 months that I am aware that I am an Indigo.
    When my mom told me (shes aware of them too), she showed me the charateristics of an Indigo and their fondamental points on the internet, it was so like me, it was scary. I…
    -Often see/hear/feel of spirits, and it was only at the age of 10 that I realised that it was’nt like that for everyone.
    -Can see a bit of auras (still practicing)
    -Have been interested in the metaphysical proprieties of stones and Power Animals since the age of 12
    -Have weird dreams ( messages, predictions, omens)
    -Loved indigo sapphire without knowing why
    -Can become “invisible” (focus my energy and people forget me, I blend in the background. It can be really cool)
    -Have ADHD
    Those are not powers. Those are hasards that happen rarely (exept seeing auras and getting invisible, who are handy, specially getting invisible when you don’t have your homework. They are not as formidable as they look). I always felt different. I always felt more…aware? Now I know that I am an Artistic Indigo.
    Just think about it…. if so much people feel different, does that mean they are the same? Because knowing that so much people feel different, like me, I know that I’m not so different that I first thought.
    Being an Indigo does not mean to have super power (even if I’d love do detect lies and move object with my mind), it just mean to be yourself, so if you can’t teleport yourself, no biggie.

  8. So I’m 16… and I’m struggling. Every test i have taken points to me being indigo, I’ve had people tell me I will become a leader, but I’m scared. I have seen things like loose auras that have no one producing the. I have seen green energy creeping from the heart to the rest of the body (later to learn that green is healing). Sometimes even when I’m alone objets will produce energy, but the worst of it is, I can’t control it. I’ve learned basic aura reading to see if it will help but it doesn’t seem to be. Does someone know how i can learn greater control over this advanced involuntary reading I have or at least tell me how can turn it off. Thank you

    • You have a gifted power young one. When you are alone things will seem to give off energy. This does not mean your a crack head it means you have a powerful ability of seeing objects give off energy when your alone. If you want to learn greater control go to your local ACS (Aura Control School ) good luck and remember to register before august 14 because that’s when the deadline is for the fall semester.

    • You should never turn it off it is what gives life to the things producing energies around you. Look at me I am 12 and I am giving advice to a sixteen year old I have had these experiences as well and have learned how to control them. Just focus and then you will see you have a gift

  9. I just recently (like yesterday) heard about Indigo Children. I have read a few things today about them as well as taken a couple of quizzes. I also had my two boys take this quiz. Are there any other parents out there who think that they may be an indigo child with indigo children? I also think that my niece may be one also. Could this just be some strange hereditary mental illness?

  10. Joe Lewis: I found out I was an indigo when I was about 12 years old. I had a similar problem with seeing auras and picking up energy from everyone and everything constantly. I’m now 24 years old and the one piece I can give you is find someone who does quantum meditation. It helped me out big time and it was actually cool! Exercising can be a big help to but don’t “try to turn it off”. It’s a beautiful and extremely special gift to have and trust me, once you practice enough you will appreciate it more. I don’t think most indigos ever become as sensitive to seeing auras and it can be really scary at first. But, now I can look at a person and see if there are any physical spots on there body experiencing pain just by the aura it projects. Don’t run from this, it gets easier for all of us, it just takes practice.

  11. Wow – this is all very enlightening and quite comforting. Yes Carolyn – I am quite sure that I am an Indigo child with three Indigo children. It’s a relief to be able to ‘label’ the ‘condition’….now I just have to find a way of making our lives easier – having people constantly trying to push us in boxes that don’t in any way ‘fit’ our shapes is very frustrating!!

  12. okay,i fit into this description ,i’m 17 and i’ve experienced a lot of spiritual stuff,since i was a child.How can i know for sure that i really am an indigo?

  13. I have taken multiple texts and read multiple doctrines on the Indigo, Crystal, and Rainbow child theories, and every single test I’ve taken says that I’m a Crystal Child. But how could I ever know for sure? Are any of these online tests trustworthy?

    • I suppose you’ll just have to go with your gut on this one. We all have intuition, and we all should follow it. The stuff we find on the internet will only do so much for us. I suggest meditation. It’s a great way to figure things out.

  14. I have known about being an indigo child for years as I have always felt different from the crowd “the odd one out” but now that I know I am a different person from just me and I thank the universe for it

  15. Hello, My Name is Ashante and i am sixteen years old. I recently took notice to this topic and im very skeptical about it. As a child i would see family matters after they passed repeatedly and soon my family started making me cross the graves. As my family is very superstitious and very big in the Christian religion. After my grandfather passed i have always had this strange connection with the wind. Strange because i have always been attracted to playing with fire. My mother as a child also had an admiration for fire. I recently lost my sister, and after the accident i was rushed to the hospital and could have sworn i heard her calling my name. My family tells me it was just the pain medicine but I hadn’t even been given any. As a child i also lost my ability to see very well and i presently wear glasses. My vision often becomes blurry and when i look in the mirror my eyes appear to look like glass. My preacher told me that means Jesus is present. Also i instantly decide whether i like someone or not instantly. I just get weird vibes off of people and very often i am right. I often listen to my intuition which is often right. I have a very strange fear of the dark and afraid yet attracted to it. I am a very weird child always have been. I step out of the normal. I have no shame of this yet i am very cautious and put myself on a high pedestal above others. I am very intelligent and often told by my family that i am the future. I have a friend who is 100% sure he is a Indigo child and says it has been confirmed by his grandmother. He has had an outer body experience and like me experiences Deja Vu very often. I just want to know am I a normal person or am i a special being among normal people? I take pictures very often and i appear to have so many different looks it is very weird even my own mother often ask to confirm its me. Basically i just need advice. My email is illergoddess at thank you.

    • Also since i was younger i dont sleep at night very well, i might sleep and hour or two, my sleeping hours fall mostly in the day.

  16. Hello, I’m Gracie (age 15) and I’ve answered yes to all these questions. For the past year I HAVE considered myself an empath due to an older friend of my explaining to me what it is but after researching Indigo Children and taking almost every quiz/test imaginable I have no doubt that I am also one. It’s a bit hard though since both my parents and I are agnostic yet THEY can’t open up to different spiritual matters but I can. I don’t necessarily know what to do next though with this info-any online community for Indigo Children/Teens?

  17. Hi my names Faith, I’m 15 years old, and I just got introduced to this Indigo Children thing, actually today by watching a video on Facebook. And I started doing research on them, then it started describing everything like me. So I took every quiz the google had popped up (including this one). And now all these signs point to me being a indigo child. It started even before I was born. My mom had a miscarriage with my twin and then when I was little, my parents told me, that I used to hear people and in the car I would yell “do you hear that? Someone is calling me” then TVs and lights would turn on randomly in every house I have ever lived in. And now that I’m older, and I can tell what I feel now, it seems that I feel like there’s something more to life and I was supposed to do something to help the world. Not to mention everyone tells me I act way older then my actual age, and I used to think it was because I grew up around people that were 12+ years older than me, but now I can see that it’s because I’m an indigo child. And as for the test I answer yes to all of them.

  18. My 12yo daughter has had a “visible to only her” friend since she was 3. His name is Oblin. He has a sister and a chronically ill mother. He visits our home quite often and we have never teased or shunned her for having this friend. They met at the same age and have grown up together, so he is 12 now as well. Just a few days ago, she and I were having a conversation and she responded to something I said with “You sound just like Oblin’s mom.” It was strange because he hasn’t visited in so many months…She hasn’t mentioned him in a while. I asked if his mother was in the hospital still and she told me that she was home now. I asked her if Oblin was “imaginary” or just invisible. She was thoughtful and told me that he lived in another dimension. My daughter has never stumbled over any question you ask about Oblin or his family, I believe what she is telling me.
    She was diagnosed with ADD when she was in 2nd grade. She is very afraid of reflections and mirrors at night.
    I did a google search this evening and found your site. I have never heard of Indigo people before this. I could tick YES to all but one of the questions in the test. What now…? What do I do with this information?
    Thank You for any guidance.

    • This is so hard to type to be honest, but I’m 15, growing up I had an “imaginary” friend named Sam. I talked to him in my dreams and in my head whenever I needed him. As I turned 13 I was more online and meeting people across the world. I met a great friend in Europe which introduced me to his close friend Sara. I skyped with her one day and her younger brother SAM came in the camera screaming “That’s her! That’s the girl!” I was confused so badly for a few seconds. Then it clicked. That was my best friend growing up. That was the boy I talked to for so many years. Now we talk in our heads or online. We live in different countries but he did turn out to be real and we met in a different dream state called the grid. It could as well be someone who is real. Just act as It really is a friend of hers. You never really know, my mom always just tolsnme it was pretend. I felt very discouraged growing up. Once I showed her Sam and explained the whole thing she has no words. Your child has such a great mind (: good luck.

  22. Hey, my name is Roslyn, and im 17, if it matters. Awhile ago my friend showed me the “Spirit Science” videos on youtube (definitely check them out!!!) and told me about Indigos one day. My curiosity has had me doing hours and hours of research still to this day. I am %100 positive I am an Indigo. I am occasionally able to predict/see what will happen in the future, always at really random times. I can see the white beginnings of auras on people and often times objects. Im sure this is related to being indigo, not %100, but people quickly feel comfortable with me, and are comfortable sharing very personal information, even if i dont know them very well. I also believe I am a healer. I have desperately been trying to increase my abilities and been trying to get a hold of an older person who knows all about this Indigo Children dealio because I have so many questions that i cannot find answers to that drive me crazy and I also dont really know who to talk to this about ! If anyone has any questions for me or can help me, PLEASE feel free to add me on Facebook (be sure to message so i will accept) at Rozlyn Ann Anastasi. I need help!!!

  23. My name is Jerry Doubleday . Not only did I answer yes to all the questions in the Adult list. But Had all the very same qualities as a child. I have 3 children that are all like me. I have struggled with feelings of confusion all of my life. Things that seem so clear and understandable to me seem to go right past most others. Things that I see as common sense, evades most others. I’ve had the same dreams most of my life. I’ve never said much to people about it because the few times that I have , the ones I’ve told look at me like I’m from another planet. I’ve always been mechanically inclined. I also have what I’ve called a deep six sense. Before I travel I consult my inner eye and can actually see myself arriving at my destination safely, by visualizing myself arriving at where I’m headed. The times that I’ve had troubles has always been when I didn’t follow my feelings. Or have proceeded when my inner visions aren’t paid attention to. When in school I was always bored or somewhere else. I’ve always been slow to make new friends. Not due to some inability to click with other but my reservations regarding where certain friendships might take me. Most of my life I’ve been able to finish others sentences. Although I can’t stop thinking. Ever. Sometimes it’s like a flood of thoughts and questions regarding things that others never seem to get or even comprehend. From the time I was a child I’ve felt that I was put here for some reason I don’t yet know. As a matter of fact even now that I’m 59 I still feel like something is headed my way that will have a roll for me to fit into. I’ve always since I was a child had very vivid dreams. When I was young they came as nightmares. But as I grew older I’ve learned to control the fear in the dreams. I’ve never really known why this is happening but I’ve known for a long while now that there is some reason for it. There are also many other things that are way to numerous to mention. I would like to meet and get to know others that feel as I do and not just say that they do.

    • I did too. I feel the same as you. My kids also were just like me. Social services took them from me because they said I couldn’t handle all three of them on my own. Didn’t know that they could terminate your rights for that but they did…

      I think it was also planned too. The foster parents were foster to adopt. Of course they fell in love with them so decided if things didn’t work out to adopt. Unfortunately social services is corrupt out here and lied in court saying they thought I had mental problems. They won and pocketed a lot of money from me as well as from the adoption. I miss them. :-(

      Anyway be blessed brother.

  24. Hi, my name is Rita (15) I accidentally stumbled upon a video on YouTube about Indigo Children, after researching a little bit about this topic I found this website. My answer was Yes to all of the questions on the list.
    I have always felt alienated, different from others but have never really realized why. I have always been fascinated by other worlds/dimensions, spirits of the dead, magic etc. the list goes on and on.
    When I let my mind wonder and not concentrate on anything I see energy of the objects (to me it seems as a field around an object), it similar with people as well but their energy is different. It’s too complicated to explain.
    Other times I get different feelings, usually it is unexplained feeling of panic or fear which can last for hours, usually it has something to do with mirrors. I feel really scared looking into one at night I know it sounds ridiculous but I can’t sleep until the mirror in my room is covered, but even then it’s quite hard falling asleep.
    When I was a child and still sometimes now when I wish for something to happen it does, even if they are quite small things.
    Other times I see what will happen before it happens, it’s only flashes but it can be quite unnerving and sometimes when I’m not really concentrated which happens quite often if someone asks me a question the answer comes into my mind, which is really strange but helps me sometimes.
    A lot of people in my family have died and those who are left don’t believe in things I do and when I bring is up they just brush it off. It’s really hard for me to form attachments and make new friends (or rather care about them) because when I meet people for the first time they seem to instantly like me but unfortunately that is not the case for me, every time I meet someone I get a feeling about what kind of person they are. Usually it’s not even conscious, someone might not even uttered a word before I dislike them. I know it sounds harsh but there is not much I can really do, if I don’t like somebody I don’t like them.
    Finding about Indigo Children has helped me a little bit to understand why I’m feeling certain things.

  25. oh my gosh, I am at a true loss of words. 90% of these traits match my personality to a tee. I always had a feeling that I was different when it came to my peers. School was never easy for me being a child diagnosed with ADD and homework never was something that I felt was a necessity. I would describe myself as an intuitive spiritual person that is full of love and creativity. being a teen with very traditional parents who don’t quite see things the way I do has always been a struggle when it came to my parents parenting me. nearly all of these traits truly match me and it makes me proud to know why I am this way. I am open-minded and free spirited but sometimes get off track very easily. I am personable but often times at the end of the day, id be found by myself because I felt that people don’t really get me or see things the way I do. this is a little off topic but it wasn’t until today that I found out about “indigo children” but last night the word indigo came into my mind. I must admit I am really intuitive about stuff like this and I am very passionate about spiritual and paranormals. To anyone who also discovered that they are Indigos just like I have, just know you all rock. I look forward to learning more about this myself.

  26. I scored twenty-one on the test and this describes me perfectly. I’ve always hung out the adults and people have always told my parents that I was an old soul and is different and I’ve always felt that way. I dont think im better than anyone or something but I do realize I am different

  27. Okay, I’m going to share my story to add to the great sense of community here. I’m 13 years old and only found out about Indigo children a few days ago. Since then, I have done loads of research on it and taken multiple quizzes and tests, getting positive results every time. I am blessed with precognitive dreams. Most of these are about people that I meet several years after having the dream. This is a talent that I have had my entire life. I am also an empath and very easily feel what others do. I can tell you without trouble that the person who passed me in the hallway just ended a relationship or got into that college they were hoping to. Also, when my mind is relatively clear, I can see colorless shapes (this is hard to describe) and these shapes zoom around me. This has happened in all sorts of locations and situations. Of course, there’s much more to me than the spiritual side of things. I strongly dislike being told what to do and approve of the possibility of American educational reform. I am creative, especially in music. I genuinely believe that I have experienced past lives on earth, and I know that this particular life is special and will stand out. I have a very strong connection with animals, often communicating with them better than I do with humans. Despite this, I’m a strong leader and extremely devoted to and protective of my friends. Anyway, I just wanted to add to all this because it feels so nice to know there are people out there like me. I hope that reading this made you feel good too.

  28. I am now 17 years old. I have taken multiple tests and they always come out positive. I can kind of predict the future at times. I will have a ‘daydream’ about a horrific event and later on find out it happened. A week before a local bridge collapsed I had a dream about it. I was five at the time and i tried warning my mother but they didn’t listen. Is there any way to enhance this ability? I only seem to get visions once a year at most now. Could my adhd meds be effecting this?

  29. Im Isabelle (12)and almost all of these are a yes ive taken a dew of these tests and they all say that I’m an indigo I’ve always known that i was different from everyone else but I never knew why.then I looked to my very spiritual friend Emily and for some reason ever since she and my dad became friends we had always bonded then I asked for an answer she said that I might be an indigo child and I asked her what that is she explained and I told her that it sounded a lot like me
    (Thanks for reading)

  30. I am 13 and have always know i was an indigo child ( My mom went to a phycic convention when she was pregnet with me and a phycic told here, and she told me) But i just recently discoverd what it means and i fit 23 of the traits. However I still feel like there is something more to me i can’t find! Any help please!!

  31. I have trouble explaining my abilities to normal people like my friends and when i describe them they still don’t get it and does anyone think i should tell my parents because they don’t realy like or believe in psychics and star children and they might not believe me
