This is Part 2 of a 6 part series on Indigo Adults and substances.
Today we well be covering caffeine…
First of all, I want to start by saying that all that I am about to say it though personal experience. There are lots of scientific experiments that cover the physical effects of caffeine, but I think you’d be hard pressed to find articles that cover the energetic effects (and I’m not talking about the “energetic” in terms of caffeine’s ability to wake you up in the morning.)
Caffeine elevates my emotions (which I think can be backed up scientifically) but also opens me up more psychically.
Unlike other substances, like alcohol, which also opens you up but you don’t feel the opening until you sober up, caffeine opens me up immediately and makes shielding more difficult, despite my best efforts.
If I’m in toxic collective, my urge to drink coffee is much more pronounced. I have much less desire for coffee in Flagstaff than I do in Las Vegas, and in Sedona I almost never drink coffee.
My coffee consumption in Flagstaff depends a lot on how much time I am spending at home (around my smoker housemates). If I’m not home much, I don’t have much urge to drink coffee.
So, for indigo adults, coffee can be useful to balance their own body out in a collective that is more toxic. It will help you match the collective vibration better, which should be more comfortable for you, as long as the thoughts of the collective aren’t too dark.
It’s also a more gentle way to achieve this balance than alcohol or smoking.
Caffeine also can make grounding and staying in one’s body more challenging, though this has never stopped me from indulging. I just need to focus more on grounding if I am heavily caffeinated.
Most of the indigos and empaths I know can safely and comfortably use caffeine.
Finally, coffee and espresso drinks have a more dramatic impact (especially Starbucks), so tea and dark chocolate are good choices if you have trouble grounding but still want to use caffeine to wake up.
Any indigo adults have thoughts on this? I would greatly appreciate kind and constructive comments…
