Indigo Generations

The People of the Indigo Ray, or the Blue Ones, have been on this planet for a while, but have not manifested in such great numbers for a very long time. There has always been a random sprinkling of Indigos in the population in all generations, but these people were fairly rare before the final third of the Twentieth Century. And Indigos have been with us since the dawn of time, and many have contributed much to our advancement- some were famous, many were not. All were unique and gifted.

The current heavy surge of Indigo arrivals have manifested in five distinct and discernable decants or generations of one decade each. Each generation has distinguishing characteristics, auric veils, and Awakening/Saturn’s Return years. I have listed them here for clarity.

Generation One (Alpha): Born between 1958-1968. Born with blue-green-violet overlays, camouflaged with tans. Saturn’s Return/Awakening years for this generation were 1986-1996. (Age 28 for each year.) This generation is now in their Post Awakening years, and is in the process of rediscovering and recovering their Gifts. Some are currently transiting into their Octarine phase.

Generation Two (Beta): Born between 1968-1978: This generation also came in with the blue-green-violet overlay, but without the tan camouflage. The Saturn’s Return/Awakening years for this generation were 1996-2006. This generation is also Post-Awakening.

Generation Three (Gamma): Born between 1978-1988: Here is the first generation of minimally overlaid Indigos. If they have an overlay at all, it is generally violet, with some appearances of Crystal/Octarine. This is where some of the earliest manifestations of apparent ADD and ADHD in Indigo children began. Saturn’s Return/Awakening for this generation will be from 2006-2016.

Generation Four (Delta): 1988-1998: The first of the ‘pure’ Indigos with no color overlay at all- only the highly chameleonic Crystal/Octarine. These are the ‘wildest’ of the apparent ADD/ADHD group, and Guidance states that it is possible that it is the rapid-fire overstimulation by the public media of this time acting on the crystal overlay that is driving the Indigo child to distraction. Suggestions of the use of slower rhythms and deep, warm colors in their environment, rather than the use of drugs, may stop these ‘oscillations’ that make them ping off the walls, and give the Crystal/Octarine element in their overlays something to use for grounding. This will also soothe the Indigo child when he/she is overstimulated by the noisy, flashy environment. It will also make their transition into adolescence smoother- this group will have the hardest puberty, and, if not carefully monitored, the highest drug/alcohol and suicide rate of all the cohorts. For this group, Saturn’s Return/Awakening will be from 2016-2026.

Generation Five (Omega): 1998-2008: According to my Guidance, this will be the last decade of pure Indigos, and the end of the major cohorts. They may have as many difficulties in acclimitizing themselves to the environment as the Delta generation, and depending upon the local conditions, may have an extremely difficult childhood.  Many of these Indigos will be born of earlier Indigos, and some will be reincarnations of Alpha and Beta generation Indigos who chose to leave early. Depending upon local conditions, this generation will experience its Saturn’s Return/Awakening from 2026-2036. Other elements may speed up or back off the time table. The number of people of the Indigo ray will drop off sharply during this generation. They will still be born, but not as many.  

If you are a Beta generation Indigo, on the verge of or are presently in the midst of your Saturn’s Return period, this guidance should help you. It is very rare to see a fully Awakened person under the age of thirty. For Indigos, this difficult time serves to strip away the overlays and camouflage, and reveal to them their true potential and psychic capabilities. The transitory period for an Indigo is generally longer than that of a normal person- sometimes up to three years. Indigos may feel totally naked without their overlays, and if they do not understand what is happening to them, they may panic and think they’re going mad. Careful direction, close peer contact, and compassionate guidance is essential during these vulnerable times. You will make it, and wonders will await you on the other side of this passage.

A note: These dates and generations aren't set in concrete. If you were born before 'Alpha', that doesn't diminish your status at all. There were just fewer of you around. There will always be Indigos in the population. But sometimes there are more than other times.
