A couple nights ago I had a dream…
I was creating a profile for myself to meet more people in my new city (just moved to Chicago).
I was talking to the man making the profile for me and when I gave him my proper name (Leslie) he said that was boring and that nobody would be interested in me or my profile.
Then I said, “Well, I sometimes use the name Indigo,” and he said, “That’s perfect.”
So in the dream I saw a big, clear close-up picture of me with my name, Indigo, underneath.
It drew a lot of attention, but then there were also people who were very mad at me.
An image from the dream is me walking down the street and having people yell at me and say mean things to me.
Another image is of me standing on a platform or stage while people looked up at me and cursed at me and spit on me.
I have been considering coming out of my “Indigo Adult Closet” lately.
I’ve been wanting to be more active with this blog and it seems like the empowered thing to do…
To not be intimidated by what the status-quo-thinking in our society is…
To take a stand more publicly for the energetic world, because it really does exist and has such a powerful impact on the physical world, which most people do not realize.
My intention in “coming out” would be so that others… muggles… people who are not comfortable / familiar with acknowledging the non-physical world… can become more accepting of it. Or at least aware that it exists.
No one has to think like me, but I think a little knowledge would help a lot of people.
But here is why I DON’T want to come out of the closet…
I have created, with your help, this really nice world here… those reading this blog… and that there is no reason to announce anything to anyone who hasn’t been led hear naturally because they won’t be open to it anyway. The anonymity is protective for all of us (especially being empaths) and so it could potentially wreck the lush ecology of this site to let people in who only want to stop through the garden.
Additionally, I am currently free right now to write about very personal things like relationships and sex and friends, and what muggles consider weird like bending time with my thoughts, without looking over my shoulder to think what my next employer might think if s/he read my blog.
Or what my lover might think if I wrote a piece about sex from an indigo adult point of view.
This question has particularly come up because I am taking a class in public speaking and I have written several speeches already but have steered clear of my urge to write about topics like the ones I blog about here (like being indigo, empathic, the planetary shifts, etc) because even though it is a supportive crowd of fellow classmates, I’m just not sure I want to step into it fully.
And, quite frankly, it feels kind of weird to have a giant blog CALLED “The Indigo Adults”… which has been up for over two years now… and is a big part of my life, but that is a secret part of my life.
Ha! It’s like a super-hero thing! “SUPER INDIGO!!!” Hahaha!!!
People are sometimes uncomfortable around “psychic” people because they feel the psychic person can “see” all of their bullshit. Which is sometimes true, but most of the time there is only a need to look into that stuff if I need to (like I need my car fixed and I need to see if a car mechanic is shady or something like that).
Other times, something weird and negative will happen and muggles will look to the person who is more energetically powerful and blame them, even if the energetically powerful person had nothing to do with it. This is a throwback to the witch trials… something I am very connected with, and also used to happen all the time (and still does a bit) with my family.
Actually, that’s what put me in the closet in the first place.
Plus, energetically powerful people never get credit when we deliberately shift things positively. Very few muggles ever say, “The plant was going to die, but this indigo said a prayer and gave it some healing energy and now it’s strong and alive.”
They will say, “This lady said some prayers, which really didn’t do anything. but I felt inspired to give it extra plant food and I think that’s what did it.”
What do you think inspired that muggle to know what to do to heal the plant? It might have been nothing but an internal process, but it most likely was the prayer… especially if things haven’t been going well up until that point.
I would love to hear other indigo adults thoughts on the matter. Has anyone else come out of the “indigo closet” to their muggle friends, and especially, business associates. How did the muggles in your life handle it? Are you glad that you shared the indigo aspect of yourself and how that affects your perception of the world or do you wish you had never brought it up? Do you ever talk to people about your abilities? What is their reaction?
