Do as I Do not Do as I Say

Children are far more intelligent than they are given credit for. For many adults in previous generations, it was a common concept to think of children as vessels to be filled with knowledge; fit to a mould, a system, follow the directives and regurgitate information and do as they were told. Sure this sounds ideal from a teacher and parental perspective, to have children who comply with and do as they are asked. However, this is not fitting in with the need to understand child’s behaviour or to meet their needs.

Let’s take this idea and apply it to the concept of thinking as a child is an individual, each with their own needs. In this day and age, there is really no limit to the way that a child has been able to express himself or herself. I think this also comes with the decrease in the use of authoratative, physical punishment that was phased ou in many places around the world.

Now we are brought to the context of teachers and parents facing the need for new ways of raising, communicating and dealing with children. A much more positive direction towards liberating children from using fear based tactics to rule over them.

Today we are facing the question of children “not having enough discipline“. Well it is not about being able to control them, for we are, in truth, not here to control anyone else except for ourselves and the ways that we respond to the different things in our lives. So for the sake of answering the statement of not having enough discipline, it is true – we are moving away from the model of needing discipline to control children and young people today. What about this defiant kind of attitude and behaviour that is sweeping across classrooms, homes and society? How about social models that fit their needs based on understanding?

Instead, rather than the need to focus on discipline, how about we be the role models who set the examples of what is expected for children? For example, in a society that condemns violence in the home, school and society, how can we set rules for them when we condone such things in video games, films and children’s toys? Or how can there be rules for illicit drugs when there are other things just as addicitive considered the norm? How do we overcome these kinds of behaviours?

We would like you to consider this today, as some food for thought as to what you have the potential to model to yourself and the children around you. Think about the ways that you set an example and you are a teacher by living and leading by these principles that guide your life.

As for my Indigo Brothers and Sisters, we would like to finish by saying – “Make your own living experience an example to live by and to learn and grow from. Let a personalised experience that you apply to your life be what you set your life to and form your own understanding to get the most out of it. You are your own individual self who is here to shine in your own personal and unique way. You are beautiful, blessed and full of potential.”

The Power of the Word

Recently, we were asked why terms such as Indigo Children and Crystal Children were used for children exhibiting varied traits in areas such as personality, physicality and physiology, and part of the reason for this is to empower and educate. From my experiences, growing up and now at school with a range of different children, a medical diagnostic label such as ADHD and Autism has implications that something is wrong or that thlabel-34247_640e person is broken.

It is looking for symptoms and problems rather than looking for solutions. Remember that we become what we say we are. So if a child with one of these diagnosed labels finds out that this label is given to them and they are seen as problematic, then that’s what they’ll think is true about them. It may lead them to think that they aren’t worthy of fitting in or that they aren’t ‘normal’ like those without labels.

Wouldn’t it be far more empowering to highlight the strengths of these children through emphasising their gifts and unique ways of exploring the world? Whilst all these children have been coming to the Earth in higher numbers, some medical and scientific communities are looking straight past the differences as things to celebrate and welcome, rather, looking at them as things to fix. We are who we are and we are what we are and there’s nothing wrong or broken about us.

What we are being faced with is not surges of increasing epidemics of things like ADHD, Autism and the like, but rather we are facing awakenings in human evolution. Changing consciousness, communication, emotional understanding, compassion, integrity, unconditional love and remembering love as that is what we are and who we are.

My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, you are perfect just the way you are. We celebrate your presence here. We honour you. We bless you and we say, Namaste.  

Love from Nathan and Friends.

Respect and Indigo Children

cane 1During my time as a school teacher, I have heard things from various different teachers, parents and external stakeholders which can be summed up as phrases such as;

“Students don’t respect their teachers anymore”,
“There is no discipline in schools these days” and
“Students walk all over teachers as they have more rights than teachers”.

What is it that is raising these concerns in teachers, parents and members of the general public? Are teachers and parents really feeling that disempowered because of a ‘lack of discipline’ in schools and at home? Is it because there are new rules that protect children from harm that mean that ‘authority figures’ cannot impose their authority onto those who are not conforming?

Quite the contrary, really. In all honesty, we are witnessing the evolution of the human species. We are moving beyond the need to control others and exerting power in ways that are harmful; physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically. Let’s face it, Indigo Children can detect truth internally and ever so easily and naturally, whilst Crystal Children are drawn to those with open hearts.

If our children are a part of systems which are not based upon principles and foundations of integrity and honour, then who are they to be named and shamed for doing what could be considered ‘wrong’? Students walk out of class, refuse to do work, speak up and voice their truths, which sometimes escalates into arguments and defiance. What do we make of the situations involving these children, when they simply do not feel comfortable attempting to learn what is not feeling right for them?

Let’s consider Indigo Children at school for example. A teacher is teaching and prior to the lesson informs the students that what they are doing is boring and they need to do it just because they have to. How do you think an Indigo would respond in this situation?

“Teacher, you can’t make me do it. I don’t want to do it. It’s boring”

“Do it now. (Raising Voice). I’m the teacher and you must do your work”

Would a teacher make them do the work? As we write this, we are picturing an image of an Indigo being backed into the corner with their own personal space and integrity boundaries being overstepped. Volcano gives out the tremors and BANG! Books closed, angry words and mood and straight out the door!

3._School_EventsOr what if the school principal is someone who only punishes students without listening to their side of the story? What if the school principal only acknowledges academic pursuits or plays favourites with certain students and families? What kinds of levels of respect will Indigo Children have for them?

Reflecting upon the two scenarios given above, it could even be quite likely that our sample Indigo Child has more respect for the school janitor than the classroom teacher or school principal because the school janitor might be someone who likes to joke around, admire this student’s artworks and enjoy a good conversation with them. This might not fit in with the old ways, but personally, I think it’s a pretty genuine and honest way to demonstrate respect for another.

In the past, it was taught and generally expected that we would grow up and respect our elders, respect those with titles in front of them, those with more money than us, those who wear a particular style of clothes, and so on. With Indigo Children, we are moving to a different level of understanding what respect actually is. Respect is a thing which needs to be really earnt with Indigo Children and not just expected because of age, titles, social status and so on. Let’s bear in mind that many Indigo Children are old, wise souls who may have more experience and wisdom than you yourself even realises. So simply believing that they MUST respect you just because you are older is something that needs reconsideration. We are being taught to respect ourselves, believe in ourselves and what we do, so that these examples can be mirrored and reflected in the ways that we interact and deal with others.

Indigo Children won’t false friendships just for the sake of it, nor will they show their respect just to be nice. You’ll notice the differences in their behaviour and enthusiasm around different people whom they innately get along better with – people whom they appreciate and people who appreciate them.

In our older models of life, whether it be business, family, education, social structures and so on, we were operating under an inbalanced perspective of operating from distorted Masculine (Yang) energy. Masculine energy is outward projecting and focuses on action, logic, practicality and striving. In its distorted form, Masculine energy tends to look like things such as competition, demand, pushiness and struggle. Right now, we are moving to the return of the Feminine (Yin) energy, which is timely with the arrival of Indigo and Crystal Children. Feminine energy turns inwards and focuses on our sensitivity, receptivity, creativity, emotions and intuition.

In other words, what we are literally saying, is that in the past, it would’ve been generally considered the logical thing – older people – younger people. Older people deserve more respect and are always right, whilst younger people must always obey. The dominance of the Masculine energy saw to it that children were pushed and controlled in ways that came from a place of fear.

indexAs we move into an era accomodating the return of the Feminine energy, we are remembering that the world operates on a simple yet profound basis on the law of attraction. Rather than competing for our dominance over others and making children obey, we manifest it through the law of attraction and understanding our own needs and their needs. In doing so, we become more responsive to building positive relationships with students and families and we understand the significance of each others’ roles. We come to a mutual understanding and most importantly, we come from a place of love and respect.

In all honesty, listen to what children have to say. Listen to them voice their feelings, their emotions, their opinions and ideas. They have great wisdom within them that is not simply ruled out or irrelevant just because someone has been on this planet longer than them. Age in Earth years certainly does not absolutely mean that they have been ‘alive’ for a longer time.

indexMother Mary says “in order to teach the world and its incoming generations about respect, then we need to see each other in the world on an equal playing field. In truth, we are all holy children of the Universe, here to make an impact and a profound difference. Love is where each of us is from. Whether we are a man or woman, a child, an animal, of the elemental, the angelic, the crystal kingdoms, of this world or another, it matters not. There is a common thread of unity that unites each and all in one way or another. Respect yourselves and respect each other, honouring what each has to say and honouring each one’s unique way. Live the life that you were born to live, and live your life in service of all that you can give. Receive and accept to Heaven’s fate, of the world you live in, love overruling hate. In this life here and now, the holy presence of life all around.”


My Indigo Brothers and Sisters, you are all beautiful. We are all connected by a cosmic web of love and light. Let it shine and let yourselves shine. Acknowledge the light in you as the light in me.

Love from Nathan and Friends

Indigo Children, Crystal Children and Agriculture

As we have already discussed in previous posts on Diary Indigo, sunlight, fresh air, nature, physical activity and community are essential things that Indigo and Crystal Children innately know that they need in their lives. They’ll do what they can to get these things and when they’re in need of them, look out, because you’ll be the first to know about it. First comes the fidgeting, then comes the boredom, the standing up and moving around the classroom. This then leads to the calling out in the classroom, climbing chairs, tables, throwing things, not paying attention, not caring about their classwork, then walking out the door.

These are just some examples of behaviours that children can demonstrate. Remember, every behaviour is a result of communicating a need which hasn’t been met. Let’s face it, we’re not here to please everybody, but in saying this, we also need to consider what others’ needs are and how we can work together to achieve the best potential for each and all.

Agriculture being taught in schools is something that we have been pondering about lately, for it seems to have so many positive benefits for Indigo and Crystal Children and it seems like they naturally gravitate towards it. As a schoimagesol subject, Agriculture teaches children about the importance of various practices, which builds links between their desire to seek truth and reasoning behind things and their physical efforts. Agriculture goes beyond the books because it teaches students the qualities of patience, persistence and the feeling of reaping what is sown.

For Indigo Children who have much energy to expend and are not the kind of children to sit still, they are in their element being able to move physically. The time spent outdoors equals to exposure to the sunlight, which equals to increases in Serotonin. Serotonin levels are linked to relaxed states of minds, balanced hormones and overall lower levels of stress. Overactive minds sure could use a lot more of it! Higher levels of Serotonin also translate into higher levels of rest, hence creating calmer minds and calmer bodies.

For learners who learn visually, there is much to see that is going on in the world and Agriculture is something that assists them in cultivating this vision. Whatever is planted and nurtured becomes a part of a creative process far greater than what was originally conceived in thought. Agriculture reflects on a level of self-empowerment and responsibilty, driving children to manage their own resources and be in control of what they produce. It reflects on the old ways and days, when we used to connect to nature so easily and freely. Sure there are modern conveniences in today’s world, but how many of us can say that we are able to connect to all these positive benefits that come about from something like studying, practising and applying principles of Agriculture, through other means?

9191524683_13b96aa2f3_zIn witnessing the way that children engage with their environment, we see Agriculture as something that is so vital for today’s developing children. Not just for the sake of growing their own food and looking after other animals, but also for the sense community that it brings about. Indigos in their element being leaders, being nurturers, planters and creators whilst Crystal Children are able to connect with nature and share their love with the plants and animals. Between both groups of children, they are able to develop positive social interactions through working together and they can feel like they are contributing in worthy and significant ways. It makes them feel valued – something which is quite often overlooked, because the labels that they are originally given, have them perceive themselves as ‘broken’ or ‘incapable’.

Today I was fortunate to spend the whole day with some Agriculture students and to see what an inspiring teacher they have to lead them, to facilitate a love of learning and a love of nature. It is wonderful to see this passion in a teacher, transmitted to their students. I truly believe that in order to be great teachers, we honestly need to show to our students that we are enthusiastic about what we are teaching. Let’s also remember that Indigo and Crystal Children are sensitive to our thoughts and emotions, so let’s face it, they’ll know when you’re enjoying what you’re teaching and you’ll know that they’ll enjoy what they’ll be learning about too.

My Indigo and Crystal Brothers and Sisters, each of you impacts the world in far more significant ways than you realise. You all shine such beautiful light into the world and spread it in all such unique ways. Unite together, share a common purpose and share the love.

“Do you see what I see?”

“Oh look at those clear squiggly lines! Do you see them too?”
“Don’t be silly. Stop talking nonsense!”

“Wow what pretty colours and lights! Look over there!”
“Oh you’re just making it up! I can’t see anything”

photo 1The italics reflect on my reactions to seeing energy and orbs when I was a young child. The bold writing reflects on the responses to family, friends and teachers who saw the world differently to me. Reflecting upon this, I had a level of awarness that was not understood by myself or others. To notice these things on an everyday level and in a very natural way prompted me to say such things without really thinking or without realising that those around me had forgotten about what was once an inborn, innate, natural gift.

I’m sure that there are many of you reading that can relate to this. The frustration of stating what we perceive as so obvious and natural, yet so misunderstood by many of those around us. Patience Dear One, patience! Our story is ours just as others belong to others. Nobody is right or wrong here, we are all just operating from our highest level of current understanding. Both sides need to learn to respect multiple perspectives and ways of perceiving life.

As I shyed away from engaging with the Spirit world in my teenage years, it wasn’t until I myself was a school teacher that this came back to me. I noticed what some of the children in my classrooms were talking about. I read their stories during story writing time about imaginary friends, coloured lights and angels visiting their rooms at night. It made me think about my own childhood and the easily dismissed notion and disregard for ‘imagination’ as if it were a bad thing with no relevance in a logically functioning world. I explored and I made the journey to rediscovery and reconnection. I lent an ear to these children who felt encouraged to share more and talk about these things with me. It taught mphoto 2e many great lessons about our spiritual nature and actually how intuitive and aware we are as children. To return to a childlike level of innocence and purity is to reconnect with where we once came.

Something that I am passionate about passing on to other adults, parents and teachers of children is to listen. Listen to what children have to say. Just because as an adult you have been here longer on this Earth than the young ones before you, that does not mean that you automatically know more or that you are always right. Just because your experience of life is different to the way that another individual, another child, experiences life, that does not mean that theirs is invalid or wrong. We all have a voice and we all have a right to share our story in this journey through life.

The idea is not to judge one another based on their experience of life but rather to see to it with open arms, open heart and open mind. Let us all respect one another as individuals without seeing the need to fit us all into one mould, one life experience orone path. Above and beyond, we are all here to shine in our own unique ways.

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends

 

 

Hello and Welcome to Diary Indigo

ImageHello my name is Nathan and I am a Clairvoyant Healer and a Primary School Teacher from Sydney, Australia. One of my passions and main focus in my work is to empower, educate and inspire adults and children and reconnect them with their own inner-awareness and appreciation of themselves.

I have been inspired from my own misunderstood childhood and youth to impart wisdom and valuable life lessons and skills to support intuitive and sensitive children and their families. I decided to write this blog as a reflective tool and an educational resource for people wanting to learn more about the nature of our innate spiritual gifts and what goes on in my life as I apply these principles to daily living.

Being empowered, intuitive, and spiritual is not about putting on an act or changing into a different mode, thought pattern or way of expressing yourself as an act, costume or occupation, but rather it is woven into every aspect of life.

I would like to invite you to join me on a journey of exploring life as an intuitive and sensitive person and many of the important life lessons that have been shown to me along the way. Perhaps you’ll find relevance in the things that we write about, as you may be on the road to discovering more about yourself or you too are an intuitive and sensitive person, meaning that you are very in touch with yourself and your inner voice, gut feeling and Divine guidance.

Return to who you are, what you are and where you are. Life is a treasure and there are amazing discoveries to find within yourself at every moment.

Blessings and love,
Nathan and Friends
