    Are Indigo's more susceptible to Mental Illness?

    Do you think Indigo's are more susceptible to Mental Illness? I would think so as Indigo's are very sensitive and can feel and hear what more people cannot. Just wondering if this is a common trend?

    I have a theory... that those with autism, downs, mental illness, are people integrating... either they come from a place of much different vibration and that life is to get them used to the vibration of this reality, or they are integrating many many lives into something usable... or something like that. I think this way because I am borderline so many things, autistic, homocidal, schitzo... and I feel like I've lived as all those things. I identify with them very easily. But I am not those things this life... I am far far far more complete, integrated, integral

    I agree, many mental illnesses are either misdiagnosed mental illness for people with a close connection to Creator. Many of the conditions, like autism, are present at birth or manifest early in life. I must say, I was way closer to crazy, no peace of mind is a better description, until I simply accepted the world is wider than what we see as conventional reality.

    i think it might be due to several things, high IQ ppl are more sensitive to mental disease or have more complex pathology , maybe also more sensitivity and more reaction to stress and toxins, add a few trauma to this and you get the mix lol

    the amount of exposure to stress and toxins nowday is really greater that it has ever been , skyzoprhenia is really sky rocketing in our society compared to more rural or tradional lifestyle


    ppl who are either sensitive to toxins or to stress will be more likely to develop some kind of mental disorder today, add to this general isolation, and a total toxic enviroenement, fed with tv bullshit and lies and authoritarian society etc

    I think it's the other way around. People with mental illnesses are more susceptible to hippie bullcrap. Instead of being honest with themselves, it's easier to tell themselves that they're special indigoes or something and the cycle keeps perpetuating. Not saying every self-proclaimed indigo is just mentally ill, just that there are probably more misdiagnosed indigoes than illnesses.

    What I see sometimes is hard to handle without professional help.

    There is no shame in accepting help when it comes to the experiences that many of us go through.

    I do not like to label what I am going through, but it seems to be a continuous spiritual growth pattern. Sometimes I think that I am seeing into different dimensions, grounding excersises is a must for me.

    No, according to wikipedia, a mental disorder or mental illness is a psychological or behavioral pattern generally associated with subjective distress or disability that occurs in an individual, and which are not a part of normal development or culture. Why would one allow "distress" to prevent them from accomplishing their mission and life's being? Develop the strength to overcome and achieve anything you want. Believe in healing, helping, and changing the world. You have to power to let that "distress" get to you or not. Erase "distress" from the state of existence and nothing can stop you or stand in your way. How does an Indigo constitute "disability"? I would think more of the opposite - a constitution of a gift, an advantage, a power from God of Light to contribute to society. Sensitivity can be a gift if managed right with the right kind of mentality and will. One can perform enormous aid in another person's life by being more able to pick up on other people's senses. In all and all, all is well. Thought is power.
    “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” - Albert Einstein

    by the way, could you also post wikipedia's definition for "normal" too -- I have a hard time understanding the rest of your post unless that term is defined.

    It's a combination; being more in-tune is definatley hard to deal with, but also I think that the whole "Indigo" label is attractive to some of those with mental illness as a way to fit into a group of people that are already kinda....strange, for lack of a better word. Mixed bag, for sure. Look around here sometimes....

    It seems like if you are connected to the spiritual it is hard to conform into this society.
    The poetry of life and death lie within the process.

    Yes,
    Because Indigo's have the full spectrum of personality,
    Are very open minded,
    Opinionated and reject authority,
    Helping can be construed as hurting,
    And they take responsibility for everything--
    add the creativity,
    can be a recipe for the modern psychopath--
    or the modern Einstein

    We are the 'fringe-dwellers' as one of the Fae so kindly calls me....and people like us. People don't understand because society is set up and based upon religion; the U.S. is a Christian country, in spite of the different religions this country houses. The conception of healthcare, death, marriage....the importance of money....all resonate with Chrisitanity. They think this life will be their only, therefore people go to enormous lengths to preserve it, which in some instances is ok, but for the terminally ill, or the elderly that are DNR....we test and treat and try to prolong....and for what?
    If people understood that saying goodbye, weather in death or any circumstance, is something that we have to learn to love as much as finding our soul mates, the approach would be completely different. You can't journey forward without learning to love goodbye.
    We are thousands of years from a society that is focused properly, IMHO.

    Agree with the genius/madness fine line. It seems like if you don't feel comfortable conforming to the so call norm of society then you have a very difficult time if you are not supported so hello madness. For me a lot of what amuses people of society is hard to relate to. Rather stretch my mental muscle than entrophy into the abyss.

    Seems to be plenty of crazy on this site, have you all been paying attention to the troll wars that are going on? I understand a bit of crazy helps someone survive in this place, but some people here have entirely WAY too much time on their hands...it's kinda sad, really.

    I completley agree! Ive always said that those kids are something special! I dont think "mental illness" is an illness at all actually. I feel that the studies that have been done have been too few to not have many cures, and still be something rather hush hush in a "politically correct" society. But the same way that babies dont talk because they still hold strong to that spiritual and telepathic connection there is no longer a need for communication until the parents feel it necessary. I feel these kids with "special needs" are indeed special but beyond this worlds belief. These kids and adults have such spirits about them, and do acknowledge the outside world but you can see and feel something so much greater inside of them and going on in their brilliant minds. As Indigos these souls chose to live their life through those particular bodies for a reason. I believe the world is a different place in their eyes and before the indigos are awakened they are some of the ones bringing initial light to this darkened world. And as for indigos to be more prone to mental illness, i think that with our abilities and knowledge and quick understanding that we do often times get pinned as having some type of "problem" but its not a problem in the least. But now days doctors are trained to look for the signs of "us" and symptoms are viewed as "bad" and treated accordingly. Im not saying stop your meds im just saying, do you really think they want us at our full potential?

    TIP* Speaking of which.. Indigos, if you feel achs and pains and sensitivity, you should really concider meditating more, and when your falling asleep at night really try to remain conscience and go into a meditative state and understand the process that is happening to your body and imagin slowing it down, and the pains should subside. Try this for those of us who have been told we have ADD etc..

    Lots of love!

    I agree with every reply post here. How can we truely define madness? By what a few people out of fear have tried to structure and put into tiny diagnosed boxes. Is this to make the fear go away? All for the sake of "order" and the "correct" way for society.

    Fear of the unknown.......

    We try so hard to to label life, explain it, rationise it......all to keep that unknown fear away. We create order for our disorder, somehow. At what cost? to who? and how many?

    Somebody acting different, strange by our normal acceptable standards, their being irrational. Must be madness!, must be ill!
    We cannot have that disorder in society because it reminds us all to painfully of that unknown with us all, that madness within us all. So we try and contain it, straighten it out. Let us diagnose it, call it X or Y. There we know what it is now, all is in order again. We feel safe again.
    We dont have to fear the unknown in ourselves anymore, that part of us we are so scared to face, or comprehend. Our dark side. Our whole self.

    The mad ones, the ill ones, the different ones, their over there, and we are over here, we are safe now, we feel safe in our illusion.

    In Perfect Love there is nothing to Fear
