The need for a global shift in consciousness
Around the time the harmonic convergence in 1987 took place, the seeds for an internal revolution where planted within the consciousness of thousands in nearly every country. An increasing interest in the adoption of spiritual practices, belief systems and concerns regarding the elements that defined the status quo are part of the essentials of this global movement.
A series of psychological, spiritual and practical traits have been used to define adults and children as indigos, crystals, millennials and to a lesser extent other similar categories. However, many of these traits can vary, turning these labels into positive and negative stigmas that might be coating a series of problems. These problems are not always addressed properly. As such, they are not treated with the adequate tools for the achievement of a fulfilling balanced life that can contribute to the greater good of society.
As a consequence of a global shift in consciousness, individuals in increasing numbers have been rethinking the values and belief systems that have shaped our civilization so far. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, followed by the Green Revolution and the current Technological and Spiritual Revolutions, we have been facing a series of environmental, political, economical and social problems. There is a collective effort to bring forth the necessary tools to counteract them (without coming yet to permanent solutions).
The general definitions of indigos and crystals share in common the notion that these people are, to some extent, gifted and revolutionary. They question norms and the ways our global institutions function, bringing changes by providing alternatives to those practices that are harmful for the environment, and for society as a whole. They lean towards the adoption of spiritual values and practices like meditation, the awareness of energetic interconnectedness between all, alternative healing methods that replace the use of pharmaceutics, the emphasis on our relationship to nature and the importance of sharing knowledge using technological means. Bringing practical solutions is another common trait, if they manage to overcome many of their personal challenges.
Underlying problems of the revolutionary generations
The shadow side of these labels or categorizations is that certain conditions or traits, like being overly sensitive to the presence of other individuals or being an introvert might stem from certain imbalances that can be overcome if certain measures are applied.
If certain patterns are imprinted in a child by their parents and other relatives, then as the child grows up and develops as an adult, these patterns can create a negative impact throughout life. Additionally, children often face challenges in school, like bullying or having unique needs during their learning processes that are not always met. Factors like physical, emotional and even sexual abuse can create traumas that result in mild or severe form of detachment and lack of confidence.
The patterns that we carry from our ancestors as imprints in our DNA and the energies in the environment that we absorb from individual and collective traumas can create blocks in our electromagnetic field and energetic bodies. As we become more conscious of these patterns of fear and survival, we become more intolerant to any form of abuse. The abuse can be present at home or in the way our regional and global institutions operate.
As a consequence of this form of increasing awareness, more people become identified with terms such as indigos, crystals, millennials, rainbows, starseeds, lightworkers and blue rays as how they are defined by many. Our challenge is to find daily practices that can assist us in balancing our personal needs with the needs of society. We cannot be of assistance to this world if we cannot cope with our internal imbalances and healing needs.
Being talented in several disciplines, holding on to a spectrum of psychic abilities or being sensitive to our environmental conditions does not make us special, even less victimized by our surroundings. We are all unique as individuals and what really matters is to understand that we all have more in common than we might think or feel. Our uniqueness is something that we must value and acknowledge first. Once we find self love then we can be authentic in showing what we have to offer to our world.
Certain colors like soft blue and indigo represent specific vibrations in the spectrum of visible light. They are associated with the awareness of our spirituality and the expansion of our higher mind. If we operate from a space of imbalance, then our human and soul traumas interfere and we become ungrounded, unhappy in the world we live, feeling like we do not belong here or that we cannot cope with our physical reality. We need to ground ourselves and deal with all our suppressed emotions. It is as if literally we were lacking the presence of the other colors.
Striving for inner and outer balance
By finding genuine time for ourselves each day, through a meditation or healing practice, we can get in touch with our deepest emotions. Going outside and feeling our feet connected to this Earth and opening up to an inner dialogue without distraction can facilitate this process. Disconnecting ourselves during the day from the excessive use of technology can assist us even further as we discover more what our inner world is made up of.
Holding our inner child in a space of love and safety and understanding with compassion what we perceive as flaws in us can help increase our perception of self value and self love. Instead of judging ourselves, or what others call the ego, we can embrace and comprehend these aspects of our psyche and start to perceive the world differently.
We become less reactive and more proactive. The energies and material reality that we deal with each day no longer affect us or overwhelm us and a higher form of empathy based on compassion and mutual understanding is born within us. We achieve the much needed balance within us and live in harmony as unique individuals in a world of diversity where we all share much in common, and from that common ground we can share authentic love.
